  1. The Expanse has stepped up to another level this season. The last 2 episodes have been brilliant.
  2. I haven't had an ad from JLB Media Productions for a while.
  3. The strange route Benjamin Netanyahu took to get from Singapore to Sydney. Netanyahu's plane wasn't taking the scenic route by choice. Instead, the carrier - El Al, Israel's national airline - was deliberately avoiding the airspace of Indonesia. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2017/02/22/the-strange-route-benjamin-netanyahu-took-to-get-from-singapore-to-sydney/?tid=pm_world_pop&utm_term=.947be736549c
  4. All this week I've kept thinking it's the day earlier. Maybe it's because of here with most of you stuck in past.
  5. When the discussion turns to Ethan.
  6. This is big. I once worked at the airport and when Sunday coincided with a public holiday I was paid triple time. Hundreds of thousands of Australians who work on Sundays will have their take-home pay slashed after a landmark ruling by the national workplace umpire. The Fair Work Commission on Thursday morning announced Sunday penalty rates paid in retail, fast food, hospitality and pharmacy industries will be reduced from the existing levels, which, in some cases, are as much as "double time". http://www.smh.com.au/business/workplace-relations/penalty-rates-for-sunday-holiday-work-to-be-slashed-after-landmark-decision-by-fair-work-commission-20170222-guj8f3.html

  9. We did have to put up with Kevin Rudd.
  10. Maximum rate of income tax is 45% (+ 2% Medicare Levy + 2% Temporary Budget Repair Levy) for income over $180,001. However, high net worth individuals can probably structure their tax arrangements so they don't really pay that much. There's also capital gains taxes and company taxes. There's also a 10% GST. However, with that you get universal health care, a generally safe country, a good public education system (although they'd probably send there kids to private schools which also actually receive government funding. Even religious schools). Plus your roughly in the same time zone and still close to China, India and the rest of Asia. The process to immigrate here is also clearly defined and a straight forward process that doesn't take forever.
  11. There's no inheritance tax in Australia.
  12. The other end of the immigration scale. Where are millionaires moving to and from? An estimated 82,000 migrated to a new country in 2016. Millionaires moved to: Australia - 11,000 USA - 10,000 Canada - 8,000 UAE - 5,000 New Zealand - 4,000 Where are they leaving? France - 12,000 China - 9,000 Brazil - 8,000 India - 6,000 Turkey - 6,000 http://money.cnn.com/2017/02/21/pf/millionaires-moving-migration-australia-france/
