The Australian Government just released this advert about the new Carmichael Coal Mine and it's surprisingly honest and informative.

A Gympie "Man" has been given 20 months for the rape of a 7 year old girl.
Share this poster to show your timeline that you think he deserves much more time behind bars !
This story does have a good side however, the bravery of true friendship in this post is nothing short of amazing !
TWO girls, aged seven and nine, took a sunset walk across a Gympie region property to bottle-feed a lamb.
The girls were gone for ten minutes. In that time, the 7-year-old girl was attacked and raped.
It was January 10, this year, on a property belonging to the 7-year-old girl's father.
Her rapist, aged 24 at the time, worked for the father and lived in a caravan on the property.
He had been drinking vodka and rum before the girls walked past his caravan. One good thing that judge Gary Long did was say that the alcohol was not a mitigating factor in the rape of this girl.
That is a HUGE victory because the defence attorney Harry Fong was arguing that the man had no previous convictions and this was a blitz style attack which meant it was a "momentary lapse".
Sorry but raping a child is not a "momentary lapse" it is a deliberate decision to cross a line and destroy the innocence of a child once and for all.
The encounter began innocently; he chased them and tickled them before the 9-year-old girl managed to escape.
But the court heard the man, who had never been convicted of a crime, then held the 7-year-old girl between his legs and raped her.
The attack only stopped when the girl's friend ran back, grabbed her legs and pulled her away from the man. Even the judge recognised the fact that this girl's bravery literally saved her friend from her ordeal !
Well done brave little girl, you saved your bestie from who knows what ! You should be incredibly proud of yourself we at FACAA surely are !
If anyone knows either of these girls or their families please let them know that FACAA would love to help them with our Phoenix program !
They ran back to the family home, where the girl told her mother what happened.
The two girls' fathers immediately went to confront the man, but he had already fled into the surrounding bushland, leaving his wallet and phone in his haste.
He later called triple-0 and identified himself but said he "needed to get a few things sorted out".
Police found him the following morning, and took him to Gympie Hospital for injuries sustained has he ran from the property.
The accused was for some reason granted bail, during the court process it was noted his parents were there throughout the trial. His mother however could not handle the sentencing.
It was also noted that there were several character references presented to the court. All of which spoke of their "surprise" at hearing of the charges. Funny thing, those who wrote the references were "surprised" but they still wrote the reference. They still tried to get a convicted child rapist to walk away without charge.
It doesn't matter who you thought someone was, if they rape a child they are then a child rapist ! They are undeserving of sympathy of empathy they deserve nothing but time behind bars well away from being able to hurt a child ever again !
Judge Gary Long gave him 5 years behind bars for the rape, however for some reason he back dated it to the time of the incident so he will be eligible for parole in July 2018.
Oddly enough the pathetic coward child rapist was granted bail after his arrest (well that's not odd to be honest) so why was his charge back dated to when he was arrested ?
It's not like he is honouring time served ? why should his time be backdated ? If anyone knows the answer to this we would love to hear it because this one has got our heads spinning.
As always if this angers you please sign and share our petition so we can ensure that judges can finally be held accountable for insane decisions like this one ! (A)
New research suggests yoga and meditation could cut the risk of getting Alzheimer's disease. Experts found a three-month course of the exercise was more effective than crosswords and memory games at preserving brain function. #9Today
FULL TIME: Another incredible European night at Anfield ends with Liverpool coming from behind to win 4-3 against Borussia Dortmund in dramatic fashion. We are through to the Semi-Final of the UEFA Europa League!!!!! You'll Never Walk Alone.
Powerful. Thought provoking. By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans. Unless we GIVE A SHIT and do something. * Use less plastic. (Commit to it. Be mindful about it.) * Take 3 for the sea. (When you visit a beach, take 3 pieces of rubbish away with you. Take 3) * Start. (Just make one small change.)
#BREAKING (Please see our 3.30pm Update at top of our FB page).
There are officially no children seeking #asylum left in immigration detention centres in Australia!
This is a special day. All credit goes firstly to the brave mums and dads seeking asylum that protected & saved their children and stayed strong.
Secondly to the civil rights movement that is the refugee movement. Together we have made it politically and morally unacceptable in Australia to imprison children in detention centres. That's a huge victory for human rights and basic moral decency ❤️
(However, let's not get ahead of ourselves, the fight is far from over. Turnbull and Dutton have not suddenly found their moral compass just their political one in an election year.
There are still 50 children seeking #asylum imprisoned on #Nauru and over 2,700 men & 200 women still in barbaric detention centres in Australia, Manus & Nauru. We need Manus and Nauru detention centres shut down.
Also, don't forget also that Turnbull still wants to send 91 children here in Australia back to Nauru.
In addition there are over 30,000 people seeking asylum still in terrible uncertain limbo in the Australian community).
But just for today let's enjoy this wonderful victory together.
Let's take strength from this, this shows you how powerful we can be together when we stand for what is right and lead with compassion and justice. #KidsOut
A week ago I met a women who's story sounded so much like too many stories.
Jane (names are changed) was married, she loved her husband Pete but unfortunately wasn't the faithful type.
She spent her years looking after their kids, he would go out until the early morning, occasionally she received the humiliating news or found the incriminating texts, she caught him a few times but most of the time he just sweet talked his way out of it.
Janes loneliness turned to grief and she mourned the marriage that she had worked so hard for, she threw everything into her kids, grew strong, realised she could do it alone and finally left Pete.
2 months later Jane met Andrew. Unexpectedly after years of loneliness and heartache she fell head over heals in love.
And guess what happens next?
Everyone turns on Jane. Because Pete isn't happy... #poorpete. and Pete is a master at making everyone feel sorry for him. And nobody can believe that Jane would move on so quickly and dare to be happy.. They called her selfish, they called her a slut and of course a shit mum. Are you fucking kidding me???
Was everyone so much more comfortable seeing Jane miserable for all those years????
Nobody ever stood up TO Pete and all the sudden they feel the need to stand up FOR him?
Why are we all so quick to pass judgment on another women and how long it takes her to move on? She had years to emotionally move on while Pete was dangling his member around town.
How is that our business anyway? We need to stop judging other women, because blokes seem to have each other's backs during times of divorce, Queens need to as well.
Divorce is a time to heal, unfortunately it becomes a massive friend cleanse too.
Don't listen to all the bull shit people say, just listen to your Queen and ask, Are you ok? And What do you need from me?
That is all.
I for one wish Jane the world of happiness, no matter when or how or why that happiness comes. I even wish Pete and his wondering penis happiness, coz at the end of the day...
