In the news today

Rioters who wear masks could be sentenced to 15years in gaol this is the call after the problems with rioters over the weekend at the Moomba sounds good but can this woman see it happening, not really the judges and magistrates in this country are a bunch of gutless wimps.

Adele was attacked by mozzies during a recent performance her in Aus does this come as a surprise to any Aussie, me thinks not. Also turns out to get on a stage that is in the middle of a venue she is wheeled passed them in a box so she can just appear on stage as if by magic.

There is a new push for car manufactures to make cars that stop people for texting while driving the first thing that popped into my head when I heard this what if they do it via the Bluetooth in the car then I would be screwed while travelling as it is my phone not Tim's that automatic connects to the cars bluetooth not Tim's. Yes his car is synced in but it is mine the connects when we are both in the car I think this is because I drive the car most thus it is generally my phone connected to the bluetooth. Also a good idea but really I have no problem with heavy fines and loss of licence why do we have to have the technology, why can't people just grow up and do the right thing.

Justin Bieber insulted people while he is here, because he didn't want selfies taken with all and not nice but I wouldn't want people crapping me and taking a selfie with me so I do get that at times someone like him would feel his personal space is being invaded. Just to add I am not a Bieber fan yeah some of his songs are ok but wouldn't call myself a fan. I also know that a lot of famous people can be and act like assholes and they should know what happens when you are famous but still I get that at times they lose their shit just like any other person.

Leo is having the day off school as his voice is still not great coming and going and I really don't see the point in sending him, I will let him have another day to recover. At this stage I am unsure of how Tim is yesterday he felt pretty sick, taking cold tablets and sleeping a lot he said if he is still not feeling better he said he will call in sick today so we will see when he gets up. He is on afternoon starts so has time to see how he feels once he wakes up.

The CSIRO has developed a telehealth device that older people can use in their own home to monitor their health they conducted a 12 month trial of the device. The use of telehealth systems and technologies to provide patient care have long been touted as a solution to ease the burden on Australia’s health system, and a recent study completed by the CSIRO has provided the most compelling evidence yet of their benefits

The 12-month trial was conducted in conjunction with a number of partners and involved trialing telehealth systems with 287 patients.

Participants were provided with a telehealth device that included videoconferencing capabilities with clinicians, messaging features and the delivery of clinical and study-specific questionnaires.

Depending on the conditions the patients had, the devices monitored their ECG, heart rate, spirometry, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, body weight and body temperature, and glucometry were also deployed


Sounds like a good idea, if it helps keep people out of hospital and in their own homes.

  1. Most carriers here have an app that can be installed on any phone that will power it off when it is GPS-ed at anything over 5 mph. You can believe I'll install it on my son's phone when he gets his license. It powers back on once the car stops for more than 5 minutes, so missed texts will show up if there's something important.

    Bieber is a dink. But he has the right to want personal space.

    An the medical device is interesting for sure. Would be great for people in remote areas.

  3. There are a lot of things in the news that don't make sense nowadays. I think the health device is a very helpful product. Have a good day!

  4. I presume Adele knew we had mozzies here and would have had on repellent - well I presume she would have.
    Justin, can see his point, but on the other hand if he didn't have fans, he wouldn't be popular etc.
    Hope Leo soon feels much improved and that voice is better.

  5. I drive an older truck so it won't be getting any new technology installed but I don't text and drive.
    I'm not a Bieber fan but I don't think I'd like people in my face either.

  6. I wonder if it is more of a trend now, performers like Adele and Bieber wanting more personal space. Prolly more the rudeness of fans nowadays. I think that. as Bieber has warned people over and over he doesn't do selfies, he's got a right to expect that people will respect it.


    Hope Tim and Leo start feeling better (he says as he sneezes).

    1. Yeah I get they are popular but not that much to ask for some space and not have run of the mill people in your face trying to take a selfie

  7. Hope everyone over there feels better soon.

Looking in a mirror

How many times a day do you look at yourself in the mirror? I know some people spend a lot of time looking at themselves in a mirro...
