5 Driving Tips To Stay Safe At The Roundabout

Some non-Corona Virus advice to get you through the day

Approximately 40% of all car accidents happen at intersections, with most of these resulting in serious injuries.  

Roundabouts, however, make intersections much safer.

Here's how to stay safe driving around the roundabout.

Cotton Australia media release - Australian cotton industry opens its doors for community engagement day

Cotton Australia media release - Australian cotton industry opens its doors for community engagement day

No topic was off limit as the Australian cotton industry opened its doors and welcomed a broad range of community stakeholders to its Cotton Open House engagement event in Sydney today.

Hosted by Cotton Australia, the event was designed to bring a diverse range of community stakeholders together and put the industry under the microscope in the spirit of complete transparency and engagement.

Guests listened to a variety of panel sessions and presentations about key topics affecting the Australian cotton industry, and guests were given the opportunity to ask questions of growers and industry personnel.

Applications open for Future Cotton Leaders Program

Applications open for Future Cotton Leaders Program

Media Release 28 February 2020

The next generation of leaders within Australia’s cotton industry is encouraged to apply for a premier leadership program.

Applications for the 2020 Australian Future Cotton Leaders Program (AFCLP) opened today, with 15 spaces available.

AFCLP is funded by Cotton Australia and the Cotton Research and Development Corporation (CRDC). It is for emerging leaders and is delivered every two years. The 2020 edition will be the seventh time the program has been run.

Cotton Australia CEO Adam Kay said the AFCLP supports individuals to realise their commitment to creating and leading change in the cotton industry.

“The key goal of the AFCLP is to support those emerging leaders in developing their leadership knowledge, skills and experience,” Mr Kay said.

“Australian agriculture, including our industry, is experiencing a significant amount of change at the moment, and this program is a proactive way to support growers in developing into leaders, advocates and influencers of positive change within Australian cotton.”

Royal Commission - Nats say YES - Libs say NO

Royal Commission - Nats say YES - Libs say NO

Media Release - Roy Butler MP

Member for Barwon Roy Butler welcomed the news today that the NSW Nationals are backing his party’s call for a Royal Commission into the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.

The Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party have been calling for a Royal Commission into water for many months now. Pursuing a Royal Commission was one of the commitments the party made in its 10-point water plan. 

“Our political pressure and the pressure from the community has today seen the NSW Nationals finally stand by the comments of their leader in Menindee and support the calls for a Royal Commission,” said Mr Butler. 

Following the issuing of a Media Release today from the Leader of The Nationals backing a Royal Commission, the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party sought to suspend Parliament to debate the need for a Royal Commission. The Liberal-National Government voted against this call.

Minister Pavey flip-flops on embargo to create perfect storm of misinformation

Minister Pavey flip-flops on embargo to create perfect storm of misinformation

13 February, 2020

The decision to backflip on an embargo and waive restrictions on take in several tributaries and parts of the Peel, Namoi and Gwydir rivers doesn’t pass the pub test according to Member for Barwon Roy Butler.

“Minister Pavey pushes out information in the media about doing all she can to support communities through this drought then comes along with a decision like this that severely impacts on the mental health of everyone in Barwon.

“What Minister Pavey has achieved here is the creation of conflict between communities. Who does that benefit?

“What’s the point of creating this perfect storm of misinformation?

“I haven’t received a single call from anyone in Barwon that’s happy with this decision, what I have received are calls and messages from many people from farmers and irrigators, to people in towns and Aboriginal Elders asking what the Minister is playing at.

“There is a complete lack of transparency from Minister Pavey and the Department of Planning Industry and Environment about this decision.

5 Reasons You Need A Pre-Purchase Building Inspection

(How to save time, money and headaches)

Want to make sure you’re making the right choice when purchasing a new home? 

While a building inspection may seem like one of the more tedious tasks of buying a house, it can be a godsend.  

This inspection is the property version of a test drive. The inspector will tell you whether the property is worth the price or if you should be buying it at all. 

Here's why a pre-purchase building inspection is a must in 2020.
