Haha - this does appeal to the biophiliac in me ♡ Seriouly tho, there is more and more research coming out about the theraputic benefits that VR can provide - eg with Dementia patients.

"If we don’t apply behavioral insights in contexts where it’s not possible to experiment, we’re actively undermining our ability to use behavioral science to improve policy and achieve better outcomes for citizens."

Why is education funding so complicated ? You work out what it costs to educate a child K-12 in the public system. You pay that to each family. If they then want to send the kid to Geelong Grammar or St. Sadistica’s Woop Woop, they pay the extra. Not hard.

Totally agree Jane. I find this decision morally bankrupt.

Pretty impressive, this new solar array going up in Borroloola - reducing diesel consumption by 20%. Hopefully up next: the water infrastructure

The absurdity of the appointment of Mr. Abbott to the role of 'envoy' on Indigenous affairs demonstrates the Government's lack of respect for First Nations. As one of my good friends, an old West Australian man told me: 'We don't need an envoy. We need an Abbott Proof Fence.'

Word of the day: "lodestar" - a star by which one sets one's course or that shows the way (esp. the Pole Star). Figuratively, therefore, a guiding light, a luminous presence upon which your hopes are fixed, by which your orientation is set. "A Starre that guideth one" (1616).

We need staffing quotas in aged care - our Elders are precious and need to be properly cared for.

You are the one who needs education - our First Peoples are leading in many fields - white Oz just needs to stop patronising, start listening and do some serious truth telling. How can there be education when our history is a mythology??

To what extent are we inadvertently limiting the range of problems for behavioral science’s attention?

Feminism is diverse, it needs to be, so are women, So dumping on Germaine, personally rather arguing her view, is lazy crap Ssilencing her means we all lose! She makes interesting points so stop censoring and think! Feminist group think is not a model for creating real changes.
