The important thing rely in these seats would be the three-candidate-preferred rely, in any case minor candidates are excluded. If the Liberal or Greens candidate comes third in both seat, Labor will win. If the Labor candidate comes third, the Greens will win. Neither seat could be gained by the Liberal candidate.

In Brisbane, sitting Liberal Nationwide MP Trevor Evans is in clear first place, with Labor’s Madonna Jarrett simply 34 votes forward of Greens candidate Stephen Bates.

In Macnamara, the three candidates are very tightly clustered, however Labor MP Josh Burns is main on 32.3%, forward of the Greens on 29.8% and the Liberal Social gathering on 29.0%.

Movies exhibiting younger folks having “easy” and “straightforward” consent conversations will start showing on social media platforms and the courting app Tinder from at this time as a part of an training marketing campaign to coincide with the brand new New South Wales consent legal guidelines coming into impact subsequent week.

Below the brand new legal guidelines, an individual doesn’t consent to sexual exercise except they do one thing or say one thing to point consent and an individual gained’t have an affordable perception that there’s consent except they do one thing or say one thing to seek out out that that consent operates.

Altering the regulation is one factor, however on the finish of the day, what’s much more vital is altering neighborhood attitudes, and empowering our residents to hunt consent each time – significantly younger folks.

One of many vital elements of this marketing campaign is that it says precisely what is going on. There isn’t a speaking across the subject. Speaking across the subject feeds into that uncomfortable awkwardness that individuals generally really feel attempting to provoke these conversations.

Rains to proceed throughout Australia within the months forward

If you happen to’re in part of Australia that has been comparatively moist of late, it appears like issues usually are not going to vary a lot within the coming months.

So what’s occurring? Properly, the La Niña within the Pacific which influences spring and summer season rainfall is lingering longer than forecast. However what’s forward is a destructive section of the Indian Ocean Dipole.

Fashions have gotten extra assured that we’ll get a destructive Indian Ocean Dipole in coming months. That sometimes leads to above-average rainfall for central and jap Australia. @BOM_au

— Peter Hannam (@p_hannam) May 24, 2022

What’s a dipole? Properly on this case, it’s evaluating the relative heat of sea-surface temperatures within the west of the Indian Ocean versus the east. The destructive section means there’s extra convection off WA, and that’s the place the additional moisture for the remainder of the nation goes to return from.

Locations east of the ranges, akin to Sydney, will really flip a bit drier – we hope. However the place we’re taking a look at moist, east Africa is leaning dry – maybe disastrously – for tens of millions of individuals.

The IOD brings rain to Australia however drought to the Horn of Africa. An rising destructive IOD doesn’t bode effectively for meals safety within the area.

The Bureau of Meteorology, in the meantime, has launched a particular local weather evaluation of simply how moist the tip of February and early March have been for south-east Queensland and elements of NSW. Right here’s our model of the report:

For these questioning what function local weather change is enjoying within the large moist, it’s sensible to disregard an announcement in one of many newspapers (guess which) at this time that “science nonetheless can’t attribute any single climate occasion to local weather change”.

The local weather is clearly very complicated, however because the ambiance can maintain (after which dump) 7% extra moisture per diploma of worldwide heating, the case is definitely the opposite method round: each climate occasion is influenced by how we’re energising the system.

Or because the particular BoM report states: “Observations present that there was a rise within the depth of heavy rainfall occasions in Australia.

“The depth of short-duration (hourly) excessive rainfall occasions has elevated by round 10% or extra in some areas in latest many years, with bigger will increase sometimes noticed within the north of the nation.”

With the land warming quicker than the oceans, international heating can be contributing to creating heatwaves extra frequent, extra extreme and lasting longer, because the World Meteorological Group famous earlier this week:

Obtained that? 30 instances extra probably…think about what kind of hellfire awaits when international heating rises to 1.5, 2, 3 levels… except we act…

Australia’s eSafety commissioner: ‘Freedom of speech isn’t the identical factor as a free for all’

Feedback made by Australia’s eSafety commissioner, Julie Inman Grant, on the World Financial Discussion board this week a few “recalibration” of human rights and free speech have been picked up by right-wing conspiracy principle accounts on YouTube, however the full context makes it extra clear.

Inman Grant stated:

I feel we’re gonna have to consider a recalibration of an entire vary of human rights which can be enjoying out on-line, you realize, from freedom of speech to the liberty to, you realize, to be free from on-line violence, or the best of information safety to the best to youngster dignity.

Earlier, Inman Grant identified when she was at Twitter, the free-for-all on the platform meant many marginalised voices have been being silenced attributable to on-line abuse:

What I noticed day by day after I was at Twitter was that marginalised voices and voices of girls and people of intersectional elements, have been being silenced.

So, freedom of speech isn’t the identical factor as a free for all. And what we’ve got carried out is we’ve got drawn a line and we’ve got stated, if this veers clearly into the lane of great on-line abuse – and I’ve to show critical intent to hurt, in addition to the truth that it’s menacing, harassing, and offensive in all instances, so a really excessive bar – nevertheless it tackles that content material that clearly veers into that lane and it’s designed to silence.

Later within the panel dialogue Brett Solomon, the manager director of digital rights group Entry Now, pushed again towards the thought of extra eSafety commissioners in different nations in control of eradicating content material.

He stated:

A state-centric on-line policing framework can really be a harmful precedent that results in better insecurity and better lack of security for the populations that I work for and that I work with.

We have now issues about this concept of on-line policing that comes from the state as a result of significantly as you say, after we transfer from content material that we discuss, or content material or knowledge about us, when it really turns into about our identification, when it turns into about our biometrics, our irises … our faces and our gait and the entire issues which can be going to occur with 5G and the metaverse, then it turns into much more vital that we’ve got the right laws and frameworks in place.

Inman Grant defended her powers, declaring that there was a variety of discerning concerned:

A few of our instances take two weeks and nothing is black and white. It requires a regulatory investigation and there are 4 completely different ranges … I’ve to be clear by way of what I report, however I could be challenged. I’ve acquired an inside overview course of.

Folks can go to the ombudsman, the tribunal or the federal courtroom and, you realize, discretion, equity, and proportionality must be displayed and I would like an announcement of causes, it has to carry up in a courtroom of regulation, however I recognize your level: that somebody, someplace else that doesn’t have the identical regard for democratic rules or the identical means to discern and examine and simply say, effectively, we’ll take down this content material.

Karen Andrews: ‘The folks we misplaced in droves have been predominantly girls’

Subsequent, I wished to return to Karen Andrews look on Information Breakfast, the place she acknowledged that the celebration had misplaced an enormous variety of feminine voters and stated the Liberals needed to “perceive what occurred”.

She thought the celebration didn’t “symbolize their views” and that was a “harsh actuality”:

I don’t assume the reply is whether or not we tack proper or tack left. The truth is that the folks we misplaced in droves have been predominantly girls – educated girls.

They have been girls who have been financially safe. They have been sad – sad with the Liberal celebration they usually selected to take their vote elsewhere. They didn’t typically take them to Labor. They took them to the Greens celebration. We have to perceive why that occurred and we have to handle that subject. We have now had points with how girls really feel, [how] they’re handled by the Liberal celebration. We have now to show that notion round and we’ve got to be sure that that’s not the truth.

Look, an absence of empathy might be a phrase that has been used, however I feel it’s higher to say these disaffected girls specifically didn’t assume that [we] have been the celebration that represented their views. They weren’t completely satisfied to be related to the Liberal celebration model. That could be a very harsh actuality however it’s the actuality.

We have to take that on board. We have to be sure that these girls specifically, however not completely girls, know they’ve been heard by us. The problems which can be vital to them we have to deal with – we have to be sure that we’ve got a robust coverage place. I do hope that we take the time that’s wanted to place in place the right coverage settings.

In case you missed this one earlier, right here’s a report by Peter Hannam that appears on the intervention by the Morrison authorities to delay the publication of default market provide for energy costs till after the election. The provide serves as a benchmark for retailers (besides in Victoria the place they’ve their very own).

The Australian Vitality Regulator will launch the brand new provide tomorrow – as a substitute of 1 Might after an intervention by the federal government to push again the date till the enterprise day after 25 Might. The provide’s worth enhance is prone to be near and even above 10%, an increase that may have jarred throughout the election marketing campaign and countered the Coalition’s claims that that they had lowered energy costs by 10%.

I don’t know at this stage. It’ll actually rely on how the federal government is travelling.

His first job and his essential job is to carry the federal government to account. I feel he can do a great job of that. He’s our most skilled parliamentarian by a way.

I feel Peter will do a great job as as opposition chief. Whether or not we are able to win again seats misplaced like this in three years goes to be topic to a spread of things and, to be sincere with you, I don’t assume we’ve acquired a better option in the mean time by way of opposition chief.
