    Gadaffi dead

    So gadaffi is dead and I must admit that I think this is the best outcome. After hearing how he died and seeing him dragged through the streets though I couldn't help wondering if this was OK. On the one hand if he slaughtered one of mine I'd want him strung up and yet I couldn't help thinking that there isn't much difference between this and the atrocities he has commited. What do you think? I'm wondering though when the kids are going to stop chanting Gadaffi is gadeddi.
  5. He lost an arm and suffered severe hip injuries whilst snorkelling on Tuesday in what was the second fatal shark attack in the same area this month. No sharks attacks since 1962 in this area The second this month :eek: A 36-year-old French tourist was killed by a shark off the same beach just over two weeks ago. why the hell did they not ban swimming till this rouge shark was caught? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14552788

    Another 2 dead!

    When are people going to learn that doing a full day’s work, loading a car and then driving to your destination is not a safe thing to do? Tonight I watched 2 helicopters take flight carrying 3 critical ill people, while leaving 2 dead behind, a whole family wiped out just so they could start their long weekend early. What a waste of life R.I.P. Every night you can see tired people driving somewhere, you see them speed up, slow down, wonder across lanes, leave there high beam on etc, then you see those cars/trucks in ditches where people have wondered too far, and then on nights like tonight body bags laying next to the accident. In these last 2 weeks, I’ve seen 2 truck rollovers, 1 truck in a ditch, 3 cars in ditches, 2 cars that have ran off the road, needing help and this death! Not to mention all of the wondering cars. That’s just on 1 of our major highways.

    Are 175s dead in the water?

    I have been reading on here about all the 175 visas that are being processed and to be honest I am confused! My wife is a Nurse and we would prefer to apply for a 175 as it would give us more flexibility but there is no mention of a 175 visa in the list of priorities which were brought out on the 23 September: 1. applications from people who are employer sponsored under the ENS and the RSMS 2. applications from people who are nominated by a State/Territory government and whose nominated occupation is listed on the Critical Skills List (CSL) 3. applications from people who are sponsored by family and whose nominated occupation is listed on the CSL 4. applications from people who are neither nominated nor sponsored but whose nominated occupation is listed on the CSL 5. applications from people who are nominated by a State/Territory government whose nominated occupation is not listed on the CSL 6. (i) applications from people whose occupations are listed on the Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL) and (ii) applications from people who are sponsored by family and whose nominated occupation is not listed on the CSL. I had always assumed that 175s were classed in priority 7: 7. all other applications are to be processed in the order in which they are received. We have applied for state sponsorship and were waiting till January 2010 which is when my wife has completed a year as a nurse and then we were going to apply for a 176. And bearing in mind the new list of priorities I thought that applying for a 175 was a waste of time. So am I wrong? JOHN

    Back from the dead!!!

    Hey guys, I know I havent posted on here for a really long time. I needed to take some time away from the forum and all aspects of moving to oz to try and decide what I really want to do. Since our reckie in March I had initially decided I didnt want to make the move and thought nothing would change my mind. I have now taken some time and really thought about it. Our problem as alot of you already know is my husband works for RBS as a Manager for the Fraud Analyst dept, he has no qualifications at all and only has 3 years experience in that particular dept (although has 19 years overall in the bank). Having not been on here for ages and not checking any changes to visa etc, I have a question. If we wait for him to have 6 years experience (another 3 years) does anyone know if the ACS still accept the experience without qualifications to go with it? Would be looking for Skilled Visa.

    Kung Fu Dead

    Kung Fu star Carradine found hanged in Bangkok hotel room | News
  20. From At least 14 dead in Victoria bushfires Fourteen people have been killed in the savage bushfires which set Victoria ablaze on Saturday. Victoria police confirmed the deaths on Saturday night and said they fear the figure may reach into the 40s. Deputy police commissioner Kieran Walshe said all the deaths were in a massive blaze northwest of Melbourne - six at Kinglake, four at nearby Wandong, three at Strathewen and one in Clonbinane. Mr Walshe said he believed the Kinglake victims were all in the same car. He believed arsonists were responsible for some of the nine major fires ripping across the state. "We suspect a number of the fires have been deliberately lit," Mr Walshe told reporters. "This is an absolute tragedy for the state and we believe the figure may even get worse," Mr Walshe said. "We base that on the fact we're only just getting into these areas now ... to search buildings and properties these have been very very significant fires ... the figure could get into the 40s." The fire started in East Kilmore, 80km north of Melbourne, and covered a huge area as it pushed 30km east to Kinglake, through the small townships of Wandong, Strathewen and Clonbinane. Mr Walshe said he could not determine whether the victims were civilians or firefighters. He said identifications could not be carried out until at least Sunday. Kinglake resident Peter Mitchell said the town had no time to act as the fire raced through. "The whole township is pretty much on fire," Peter Mitchell told ABC Radio. "There was no time to do anything ... it came through in minutes. "There'll be a massive loss of houses ... there'll be a lot of us homeless. "All those who have made it into town will be fine. The others will be sheltering and working on their fire plans, God help them." Mr Mitchell said he was with around 200 residents holed up in the local pub and that no fire trucks could get into the town. The Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) said at least 100 homes have been destroyed as nine major blazes burnt out of control across Victoria in the worst fire conditions in the state's history. The Ash Wednesday fires in February, 1983 claimed 47 lives in Victoria and 28 in South Australia and remain the deadliest bushfire in Australian history. I am sure I speak for all PiO members in wishing anyone involved the very best,our thoughts are with you.

  23. Can do no more. :nah: Virtually all Résumé’s / CV's for railway sponsorship replied to and all either say that they don't do sponsorship or apply via the skilled list, which are all bridge, electrical, signalling ENGINEERS. Of course I am not from that field so no experience, would be prepared to learn, but all ask for previous experience. Adios ! Today, ARG Freight Perth reply advising "At this point, Australian Railroad Group are not in a position to arrange for Sponsorship Visa's for overseas applicants. Therefore, in order to be considered for any future vacancies within our organisation, you would need to arrange for a valid working visa for Australia, details of which may be obtained from our Department of Immigration website at http://www.immi.gov.au/." I thought a working visa was the "Skilled" visa that I do not qualify for or an age limit attached to it, which of course I am over. They even reiterate their website address for me to keep an eye on jobs being advertised ? Now I'm either confused or mentally handicapped. So what other options ? Well I have registered with a couple of agents who have notified me that they will be in touch. To even think about training a skill now, plumbing, electrical etc, etc blah de blah would take years, which I don't have. HGV pointless because I would have to go on a refresher and even then that would mean nothing because you get tested again in Australia. Anyway, that isn't a skill either. Money. Retirement visa. Haven't got enough and anyway, does anyone know the 6 numbers for Saturday. What really ticks me off is that for 23 years I have slogged it in my line of work, working all hours, prepared to work 100% guaranteed and I just cannot get anywhere. Then I look at what is going on here in Britain with every Tom, Dick and Harry coming in for the entitled pensions, health service and benefits and we cannot get out to work in a land I know I would give 100% and then some. Absolutely P****d off! It's not as if we are trying to emigrate to claim. Frustrating or what ? So if anyone on this forum has any ideas I would be grateful of any help. Looks like another agent call on the way tomorrow, today. :arghh:

    Heath Ledger found dead!

    I can’t believe it – one of my favourite actors, Heath Ledger was found dead today it’s saying on the news. He was originally from Perth, and I’ve loved almost ever film he’s been in. What a waste – such a talented young man. RIP Heath!
