Karratha - Western Australia 2015
Karratha is located in a very hot area of the state with temperatures that peak in the high 40s. Over 260 days per year are over the 30C mark. It was established as a satellite town for the port of Dampier when Dampier ran out of room for expansion. The name is derived from an Aboriginal word meaning good country. Other names suggested for the town include; Tanga-tanga, Hearson, Dixon and Nickol. The area was first settled in 1866 by Dr Bayton and Mr. Whittal-Venn but the town was established much later in 1968. Karratha Station was, for many years, the focal point of the area. Life on the station before development came to the Pilbara is described by Tish Lees in her book 'Lonely for my land'. It is a major centre for iron ore workers and excellent modern shopping facilities are available, but it is a long way from anywhere. The current townsite was excised from Karratha Station. The main highway bypasses the town and it is necessary to make a 7 kilometre detour to see the town centre. Karratha is a good place to spend some time. The nearby towns of Cossack, Wickham, Point Samson and Roebourne make Karratha the ideal base from which to explore. The large mining companies in the area run tours of their facilities, notably Robe River Iron provides the best tour that includes Cape Lambert and Cossack. Karratha is the only town in the area with a major industrial area (known as the LIA - Light Industrial Area).

Gorgon Project Overview - AustralianBusinessExecutive.com.au
Get a deeper look at business and government at www.AustralianBusinessExecutive.com.au An Emerging Australian Icon. Gorgon is a story of energy and the environment as well as technology and expertise. It is one of the world's largest natural gas projects and the largest single resource natural gas project in Australia's history. The Gorgon Project will develop the Greater Gorgon Area gas fields, located about 130 kilometres off the north-west coast of Western Australia. It includes the construction of a 15 million tonne per annum (MTPA) Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant on Barrow Island and a domestic gas plant with the capacity to provide 300 terajoules per day to supply gas to Western Australia. Gorgon LNG will be off loaded via a four kilometre long loading jetty for transport to international markets. The domestic gas will be piped to the Western Australian mainland. A Symbol of Australia's Progress for Decades The complexity and sheer scale of Gorgon is unprecedented. To us, it is a modern-day equivalent of Australia's iconic Snowy Mountains Hydo Electric Scheme -- a long-term, technically complex energy development signifying a dramatic advancement of engineering. And by applying the energy we have most in abundance -- Human Energy -- and combining it with world-class technology and expertise, we're confident of realising our vision. Scouring the world, we've brought together the best and brightest of the industry. Together, we're building Australia's largest single resources project, which in turn can be broken down into the country's largest sub-sea project and a world leader in carbon dioxide injection technology. Energy Fuelling Economic Growth Gorgon will be an important pillar of the Australian economy for more than 40 years. Economic benefits from the first 30 years of the initial project scope,according to ACIL Tasman will include a projected AU$64 billion boost to Australia's Gross Domestic Product and direct and indirect employment of around 10,000 people at peak construction. Australian businesses also will benefit with many contractor opportunities. Balancing Energy Demands with Environmental Objectives Barrow Island will be Gorgon's home -- occupying 1.3 percent of its un-cleared land mass. Although a Class A Nature Reserve, it is recognised internationally as a location where industry and the environment co-exist. It's our plan to build a plant that will include three, 5 million-tonne-per-annum LNG trains and a domestic gas phase and establish international shipping facilities.

Chevron, get your head out of the sand!
Maritime workers are sick of being blamed for the cost overruns and delays on Chevron's Gorgon project in Western Australia. Our wages make up less than one per cent of the cost of building Gorgon, yet Chevron and their henchmen consistently blame us for the project's problems. Get your head out of the sand, Chevron. Workers aren't to blame for the problems on Gorgon. Management is. This is part of a joint global campaign by the Maritime Union of Australia (WA Branch) and the International Transport Workers Federation.

Surviving Alone in Alaska
Heimo Korth is the last man standing in 19 million acres of Alaskan wilderness. His neighbors are polar bears and caribous. Say good bye to civilization and see how they do it in the arctic circle on the last frontier in America. In 1980, Jimmy Carter established the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the Alaskan Interior, cutting off 19 million acres of prime boreal wilderness from the mitts of fur trappers, oil tycoons, and would-be lodge owners alike. Only six families of white settlers were grandfathered in and allowed to keep cabins in the refuge—of them, only one still stays there year-round living off the land. His name is Heimo Korth, and he is basically the Omega Man of Americas Final Frontier.

Vishrant - Buddha at the Gas Pump Interview
Also see http://batgap.com/vishrant/ Born in 1954 to a working class family in the country town of Bunbury, Western Australia as Vincent Cooper, his family soon moved to Perth and he attended Aquinas College. While in boarding school he became interested in spirituality and at the age of 14 considered becoming a priest. As his love for the unknown continued an unexpected involvement with an encounter group at age 19 stirred a passion for self-discovery which was to grow ever stronger as time passed. Moving into the 1970′s as a successful publisher gave him ever greater opportunity to travel the world to seek ways of opening up the mysteries of his own mind and spirituality. Vishrant's first real spiritual teacher Osho Rajneesh came in 1979. As a Sanyasin for much of the 1980′s, he developed a love for practising meditation, living in numerous mystery schools and devoting his life to discovering his true nature. Having lived the fast-paced life of a high-flying businessman, he sought to live out the new name he had been given by Osho Rajneesh -- Prem Vishrant, meaning restful love, through meditation and spiritual understanding. After spending six months in Italy attending a mystery school run by Paul lowe (formally known as Teertha ) He had his first major awakening in 1987 while practising the Zen methodology of self enquiry, an event which changed his life forever. Vishrant gave up his publishing company and spent the next three years intensely seeking his true nature. Following Osho's death in 1990, he dedicated his life to the service of all he came in contact with, training first as a naturopath and masseur, and later as a psychotherapist, as he looked for better ways to serve those around him. It was in 1998 in the presence of travelling advaita vedanta teachers (Isaac Shapiro, Gangaji and Vartman) that multiple awakenings started occurring, establishing in May 1999. Vishrant found himself as universal Truth in an ongoing way. Seekers noticing the changes in Vishrant started requesting private satsang almost immediately and within a few years he began giving ten public satsangs a week. His satsangs have the potential of showing seekers their true nature and with a mix of traditional and modern techniques helping people remove the obstacles to freedom. Vishrant brings his passion for life, his razor sharp insight, and his radiant presence to every meeting. Currently Vishrant is running a full time spiritual mystery school in Perth called The Mystic Heart Mystery School. Interview recorded 6/7/2011.

Colony of Western Australia | Wikipedia audio article
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Colony of Western Australia Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= The human history of Western Australia commenced between 40,000 and 60,000 years ago with the arrival of Indigenous Australians on the northwest coast. The first inhabitants expanded the range of their settlement to the east and south of the continent. The first recorded European contact was in 1616, when Dutch explorer Dirk Hartog landed on the west coast. Although many expeditions visited the coast during the next 200 years, there was no lasting attempt at establishment of a permanent settlement until December 1826 when an expedition on behalf of the New South Wales colonial government, led by Major Edmund Lockyer, landed at King George Sound. On 21 January 1827 Lockyer formally took possession of the western third of the continent of Australia for the British Crown. This was followed by the establishment of the Swan River Colony in 1829, including the site of the present-day capital, Perth. The harsh conditions faced by the settlers resulted in population growth being minimal until the discovery of gold in the 1880s. Since the gold rush, the population of the state has risen steadily, with substantial growth in the period since World War II. Western Australia gained the right of self-government in 1890, and joined with the five other states to form the Commonwealth of Australia in 1901. The desire of Western Australians to revert to complete self-governance, separate from the Commonwealth, culminated in 1933 with a successful referendum for secession supported by 68% of electors. In 1935 the British parliament declined to act since secession would require the assent of the Australian parliament, and the movement lapsed with an improving economy and generous federal grants.
