  1. And the best is that .....The project received funds from sources that back organisations lobbying against action on climate change. The Earth's surface really is getting warmer, a new analysis by a US scientific group set up in the wake of the "Climategate" affair has concluded. The Berkeley Earth Project has used new methods and some new data, but finds the same warming trend seen by groups such as the UK Met Office and Nasa. The project received funds from sources that back organisations lobbying against action on climate change. "Climategate", in 2009, involved claims global warming had been exaggerated. Emails of University of East Anglia (UEA) climate scientists were hacked, posted online and used by critics to allege manipulation of climate change data. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-15373071
  2. Hey guys, I've been offered a job in Brisbane and will be starting 1st week of Jan 2012. I'm about to pay for the flights for 4 of us so looking at around £3000+. Should I book and pay for flights now or wait til I receive confirmation that my 457 visa has been approved. My future employer is taking care of all that stuff but when I asked them when they were starting the visa process they said it would be later on in the year. Does anyone know of 457 visas not being approved for any reason by the dept. of immigration. I don't want to waste £3k.
  3. Hi All, Due to the success of the last meet up arranged by Andy in the CityWest Hotel Dublin we are looking at another meet up for Sat 7th of May. Not sure of location as of yet as will wait and see who is planning on coming. We may change location this time to a more child friendly place. Andy suggested a Park and maybe we do a BBQ which sounds great (Weather Permitting) and we can meet earlier in the day to give more time for a catch up. Anyway leave your details and everyone is welcome. Look forward to catching up with everyone.
  4. Hi there, My husband has finally had a role confirmed working in the city. We now have the big decision on where to live. We have some friends who have just moved from England to Beaumaris. Can anyone tell me what it is like there with regards to schools for children aged 12 and 9, location and things to do, cost of living and anything that might help. It's scary stuff, my main concern is that my children are happy! Thanks in advance Vixx

  6. Hi Have just started this process . Done IELTS and applied for skills assessment (Registered Nurse). Was planning to go for 175 but now need state sponsorship to get the points, so another hurdle/delay when we are really keen to go. Queensland is first choice but they need the skills assessment before they will consider SS application, however it seems from here that i can submit the 176 appl to DIAC before SS is confirmed (to save time)? Is that correct? Is there any risk to this as i won't have enough points without the SS so worried it may be rejected if the SS does not come through in time. Any advice greatly appreciated:confused:
  7. Big glass of wine tonight on its way....OH has had skills assesment back from Engineers Australia after having to do a lengthy CDR and has passed. Very very happy! Just hope now they dont take Civil Engineering off the CSL. Thanks to those who have given support via POI during the last few months., it looks like we might now be in it for the long haul!!!!!!! Hurrah!!!! BRING IT ON!!:smile:
  8. We found out on 23.12.08 that our application for SA had been granted, just needed confirmation from DIAC that visa was through and it is now. Our immigration co rang this morning at 4am with the fantastic news. We thought we would have to wait so much longer. This is the news we have been waiting for - we have it in black and white. What a feeling when we saw the letter via email. Hooray. We are smiling from ear to ear.
  9. Agent rang this morning and confirmed that we have been granted the visa, 175 Skilled Independant. I was beginning to loose faith after 19 months of slog but i cannot express how happy i am today. :jiggy: A BBBBBBBBBBBIG Thank you to everyone on here who has helped, inspired and more than anything kept me focused, Special thanks to CalnGary on Pominoz for all the assistance you have given. I havn't forgot to bring you a Black Pudding from Bury market when do step foot on Ozzie soil. To those just starting the process, all i can say is hang on in there. Dreams do come true after all.

    Accomodation Confirmed

    Well finally, we have heard from Disney that our accomodation in Brisbane is confirmed. Yes I did mean Disney. We are members of their vacation club, which means we purchased accomodation on a point system a bit like a timeshare but with Disney. It is fantastic, we have got 1 week in Cairns and 5 weeks in Brisbane (all 5 star) and still got points left for a holiday next year. We bought 300 points per year and you can Bank, Borrow or use them. I am so glad we did this as the last for 50 years and are transferable, so our kid's honeymoons are already paid for....lol Whooo Brisbane here we come! they won't know what has hit them:wacko:
  11. Hi Guys Going with the results of the recent poll. The next PIO meet will be held on the 16th March at Hilary's Boat Harbour from 11am onwards. I suggest that we meet at the grass area next to the The Great Escape just at the kiddes beach. I'm sure that the have BBQ's there but maybe someone can confirm this as not 100% positive. Hope to see you all there. Janette & Ali
