Today the NSW SES has launched new Tsunami Evacuation Maps. These cover the whole NSW coast and show those areas that lie under 10m above sea level, are 1km or less inland and are 10km up an estuary. IMPORTANT: this message is not a tsunami warning. In the very unlikely event of a land threat tsunami, the NSW SES will be asking people in the red zone to seek shelter at least 10m up in a sturdy concrete building or to move outside the red zone area to an area of lower risk. To view the maps go here: http://nswses.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=d54531ab176d48c4951b7fd40c27be68 It is important to note that these maps are not inundation maps, and represent the areas considered most at risk from modelling of potential tsunami and effects observed elsewhere. The NSW SES is working on getting more data and refining maps to show potential inundation and evacuation routes in the future. For safety and preparedness advice go to www.tsunamisafe.com.au
Last month, we were all shocked to hear two dogs might be stuck home alone without food or water after their pet sitter fell ill. With that in mind, could this be the very simple way to prevent it happening again?
Every so often when you Storm Chase, you get one bolt that is just a little too close for comfort. This is actually a screenshot from a timelapse (excuse the terrible quality) that we captured on our Nikon D810.
At the time, the flash was so bright we didnt notice just how close it really struck. Reviewing the footage we witnessed just how close it hit & thought we'd share it with you all. This guys, is what we call a poo pants moment... 💩👖
::::::: TRIGGER WARNING ::::::::: Please be aware the details of this story are very distressing. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Two 50 year old "men" have been arrested and charged with raping a 10 month old baby girl and taking photos and videos of her, over a 3 hour period, in her own home.
The faces of the accused are blurred and their identities have been suppressed, this usually occurs when the alleged offender is related to the victim and therefore naming the accused will lead to the child being identified.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, one of the accused is the father of the baby and the other is his live-in partner.
It is understood the baby was living with her Mother in central western N.S W. and it will be alleged the men travelled there on The 19th April, 2015. They were allegedly left to look after the baby girl while her mother was at a training course.
The mother was unaware that for 3 hours her precious baby girl was allegedly raped, filmed and photographed.
***The following Skype conversations are extremely upsetting, please be aware they may trigger those with PTSD**** We have included them to show the planning involved and the lack of remorse or empathy.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald- Police will allege that in a Skype conversation two days later the father's partner spoke to an associate and said " Her mother was out for a while. We did not have enough time to do everything we wanted to unfortunately."
He also allegedly said: "I want to drug the little one and really have a good time."
In a Skype conversation with another associate prior to the trip in April 2015, he allegedly said that they were "going away to play with the baby for a few days".
"(The father) and I will have time on our own with her," he said. "Incest turns me on so much".
Victorian police searched the home of one of the associates in March this year and found material on computers that prompted them to search the Ivanhoe home of the two men.
It is there that they found terabytes of material on their computers including images of the baby girl and Skype conversations.
They were arrested on Tuesday by NSW police and brought to Ivanhoe police station, from there they were extradited to Sydney flanked by police officers.
Today they didn't come up from their cells as their case was briefly brought before Waverley Local Court.
One of the accused (allegedly the father, according to the SMH report) has been charged with two counts of sexual intercourse with a child under 10 years (that should be called rape) and the production, possession and sharing of child exploitation material.
The other accused has been charged with sexual intercourse with a child under 10 years, as well as further child exploitation material offences and use of a child under 14 to make child abuse material.
Neither applied for bail, but it was formally refused anyway, which means they will stay behind bars until their case returns to court on Tuesday at Central Local Court.
We at FACAA wish to commend the Victoria Police and the Victoria Child Abuse squad for all of their hard work, without there diligence this little bub may have suffered in silence, along with many others.
Now it is the judges turn ! They have video evidence of a 10 month old baby being raped ! Make sure you have arrested those on the video and when you are sure, lock them up without the possibility of parole !
There is legal precedent to do this, there has been a few cases in QLD a couple in NSW and one very famous case in Tasmania where the assailant was locked up without the possibility of parole !
To FACAA no one deserves life without parole more than someone who can rape a baby ! So now it's time our judges took a stand, it's time our judges made a statement on our behalf, that we as an Australian society WILL NOT TOLERATE THIS SORT OF DESPICABLE BEHAVIOUR !
The ball is in your court judges, make the call we the people want. Send those who did this behind bars for a VERY long time !
We wish the little angel at the centre of this a full recovery, she would be just 2 years old now and hopefully she has been healing from the trauma but let's face it, it may be many years before the full extent of the damage done to her is apparent. To her mother and extended family, we are so sorry this has happened to your precious baby. If we can help in anyway in the future, please contact us at FACAA.
Remember please, no comments on this page regarding acts of violence towards the accused. You can bet their lawyers will be watching and looking to use anything said to help their defence and to claim they will never get a fair trial!
SHARE THE POST ON YOUR PAGE AND THERE YOU CAN SAY WHATEVER YOU LIKE !
The time for the judges to show the world that Australia does not tolerate disgusting, despicable behaviour like this... IS RIGHT NOW !
SHARE IF YOU BELIEVE THAT WHOMEVER IS FOUND GUILTY OF THIS HEINOUS CRIME SHOULD GET LIFE WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF PAROLE ! (A)
Fight for freedom, above all. Yours is your birth right, others is your responsibility.
Every choice can be stripped down to love and fear, choose love. Fear isn't real.
Travel. You were born into a very lucky country, if you let that blessing shrink your mind it will transform into a curse.
Choose kind, over sexy, over cool and over successful, kind wins, funny is a close second.
Help, your parents are loving, we are providing for you more then many other kids could dream of, you are educated and have an abundance of resources. If you don't use this privilege to help the less fortunate and minimise the divide it was wasted on you.
Be present, you are here on this incredible planet for nothing but a compilation of moments, stay in them, appreciate them.
Your heart is going to break, into a million pieces, it is vital and I can't protect you from it. Every heart break teaches you compassion, once your heart is completely full of compassion you will be ready for someone who won't break it.
Change, open your eyes to the suffering in this world, if it doesn't change you, you will not feel compelled to change it. We need change.
Love yourselves, every single soul is planted with a unique reflection of our planet, accept your reflection and respect nature by loving yourself.
Question everything, question the law, question science and question authority, the only one thing that is above questioning is my love for you. I didn't know the meaning of the word until you came along and I am eternally grateful that you did.
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree. Merry, merry king of the bush is he. Laugh, Kookaburra,. Laugh, Kookaburra, Gay your life must be. Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree, Eating all the gumdrops he can see. Stop, Kookaburra,. Stop, Kookaburra, Leave some there for me.
