Steering Australia to where, exactly?

In a fit of drug (medical) addled frustration, I sent out a tweet. So today's summary: Kill the Barrier Reef Decimate CSIRO DV victims to be humble PM not happy re gay marriage bill Welcome to Australia — Robyn Oyeniyi (@TeamOyeniyi) November 26, 2014 There were a few follow up comments, such as A couple of suggested additions to my […]

Sarah Wilson versus Amy Stockwell: stress, “self-hate” and health

According to Sarah Wilson, Dr Habib Sadeghi “cites self-hatred as the real cause of chronic disease, particularly in women.” I’ve watched the whole TED talk video and I didn’t get that message at all. I have included the video at the end: see if you get the same message as Sarah. Maybe I just missed […]

What I’d like to say to Chris Bowen if I could

As I sit here propped up in my bed, a folder containing a string of medical referrals and tests staring at me, I can’t help but wonder how much of my health problems have been caused by what your and your staff put me through. Oh, I can never prove it, of course. But that’s […]

Blanc, Bernardi, visas and free speech

Australia’s police chiefs have cited society’s “vulgar and violent attitudes toward women” as a primary cause of the nation’s high level of domestic violence.

Political parties with the word “sex” in their name I can’t ever see being in power. I’m not much of a petrol-head. The Greens I did consider because at least they fight for the […]

The CPU is fine, the peripherals not so much

Up until we are about forty, many of us are invincible. We drink, smoke, work, run, jump, eat and have sex with impunity. Then we hit the big 4-0. We might notice the odd stiff joint, or women may start having plumbing issues. We start getting grey hair perhaps, or the odd line or two on […]

Bye-bye books, hello Apple

I wonder if centuries ago parents despaired when textbooks appeared? The hornbook was good enough, surely?   According to Jeff Dunn of Edudemic, in 1925 Thomas Edison “books will soon be obsolete in schools. Scholars will soon be instructed through the eye.” Check out the old technology on Jeff’s article – the memories come flooding back. So […]

Leaving Islam – the greatest jihad?

by Aisha Ashraf   The news is full of muslim converts striking out for Syria to answer the IS call to jihad, but what about those who no longer feel connected to Islam? In a religion inconsistent with science, logic, human rights and ethics, one so riddled with contradiction it offers equal endorsement of opposing arguments, rational-minded […]
