Ram Chandra’s real name was Edward Royce Ramsamy. “Our real family name was Binbarba,” explains Ken. “We dropped the ‘Bin’ and just made it Barba.” And for those who have been trying to pick Ben’s ethnicity – aside from indigenous – Ken explains: “We think Mum’s father was Afghan" // fascinating - his grandad chose a Hindu-sounding stage name in order to be more foreign

Fire in home-made distillery
A man, 50, was badly burnt while distilling alcohol in his Caves Beach garage on Monday. Reports from firefighters at the scene suggest the man was decanting alcohol, which he had produced in his home-made distillery,  into a plastic bucket close to an open flame. Fumes from the alcohol ignited, and the man’s clothes caught alight.The fire spread throughout the garage.

Swansea firefighters extinguished the fire and cared for the man until an ambulance crew arrived. Newcastle Hazmat also attended the scene and used gas detectors to ensure that any flammable vapour had been dispersed after the fire was extinguished. Flames from burning pure alcohol are very difficult to see and produce very little smoke, making them extremely dangerous. This is because smoke is the unburnt product of combustion, and with pure alcohol, virtually all the product is consumed by the fire. In contrast, thick, black smoke indicates a fire that contains high levels of unburnt products, such as bush fires.

In another garage fire involving a male occupant, multiple fire crews were called to Warners Bay on Tuesday. Firefighters were met by an extremely hot, high-intensity inferno. They stopped the fire spreading to the house and a neighbouring property. Firefighter Gabriella Smith said it was thought the sparks from welding started the fire. Crews successfully contained the fire and the man was treated at the scene for burns.

Aboriginal astronomy can teach us about the link between sky and land | Kirsten Banks | Opinion | The Guardian
ecently, astronomers have been calling for a “dark sky reserve” in Central Australia – minimising artificial light to make it a reclaimed area for astronomical observing. There are already 12 international dark sky reserve sites around the world, but it would be the first of its kind in Australia.

Home – Australian Indigenous Astronomy
“Indigenous astronomy” is the first astronomy – the astronomy that existed long before the Babylonians, Greeks, the Renaissance, and the Enlightenment. This website explores the many aspects of Indigenous Astronomy in Australia. Learn how Aboriginal and Torres Strait communities perceive various types astronomical phenomena, how elders read the stars, or watch videos of animations, dances, and songs related to the stars. You can find educational curricula, information about degree programs, and learn about the generation of Aboriginal students studying astrophysics who are quickly becoming the new faces and voices of this work.

The ‘Six O’Clock Swill’ Was an Hour of Drunken Anarchy
"It might seem perverse that bar owners and trade unions alike would support pubs having to close early. But limited hours seem to have been financially advantageous for both. People were drinking just as much, but over fewer hours, which meant reduced costs. And bars were no longer required to provide a pleasant atmosphere, either: The six o’clock swill was necessarily horrible, so investing in a high-quality drinking experience didn’t make sense."

Using supersonic metal particle sprays to get get powder fusion via kinetic impact, not too far from older metal cold spraying techniques. Not using bulk heating so less likely to have warped parts from SLS/SLM methods. Doing aerospace grade titanium, with an ITAR compliance area as well?
