  1. Hi all, The Victorian state government has today released an updated State Migration Plan. People wishing to apply for state sponsorship to Victoria should review the latest SMP. IT occupations have been re-instated, and more details can be found here: http://ptlabs.com.au/articles/?id=28 Cheers Peter
  2. NO deal. Apple has gained the upper hand in its tablet computer battle with fellow tech giant Samsung, winning an injunction to block the sale of the Galaxy Tab in Australia. The competing electronics companies have been locked in legal wrangles across the globe over claims that Samsung "slavishly" copied the design of Apple's iPad and iPhone. The patent case has now swung in Apple's favour, with the company previously admitting it considers the Galaxy Tab 10.1 a huge threat to the iPad 2. Apple's win at the Federal Court proves a major blow to Samsung's ambition for the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which had been scheduled for imminent release. This furious battle for supremacy took another turn earlier in the week when Samsung started selling smartphones for $2 in the Sydney CBD.
  3. This really got me thinking last week. In our local paper a convicted child molester was released only to rape a 10 year old girl 6 months after being released. Can these people ever be released back into society after being convicted. Is it just to much of a risk that they just might rape or even murder another child weeks, month, years after being released, can we honestly take the risk they will not re offend. I honestly think a child sex offender must be locked up till he dies, we cannot take a chance with an innocent child's life. Do you agree or disagree.
  4. One of Britain’s most notorious murderers walks free from jail this week after serving her sentence for a crime which robbed a family of a much-loved son. But Tracie Andrews refuses to apologise for the brutal stabbing of her fiancé Lee Harvey. Andrews, 41, insists it is now her ‘human right’ to get on with her life. She will go by the name Tia Carter and has had £5,000 surgery to alter her distinctive jaw and dyed her blonde hair brown. The former barmaid was jailed for life for killing Mr Harvey, 25, in 1996 during a row as they drove in a country road. She cut his throat and stabbed him 37 times with a penknife in the back, face, neck and chest. After leaving him to bleed to death, she concocted a story about a road-rage incident and blamed the other driver for the attack. Two days after the murder, Andrews went on television holding the hand of Mr Harvey’s mother Maureen to appeal for information to catch the killer The cutting above says it all really, i don't know what to think about this, she has served 14 years in prison for her crime, this to me belies my problem with it, to me someone committing a cold callous brutal murder should be in jail for a lot longer than this, his family are still really suffering, but she has served what she got and ................ should she be given another chance?
  5. I'm attaching the Minister's press release and the points test to apply from July next year. By removing points for occupations and ascribing points for qualifications the points test will give relative advantages for degree based qualifications as against trades. Ironically these changes will also, by adopting a credentialist approach, spell the end of RPL based applications for a variety of occupations. Also the introduction of additional points for a higher level of English might discriminate against many applicants. More analysis to come. Cheers, George Lombard
  6. Long awaited details: On 1 July 2011 a new points test for skilled migrants will come into effect. Information about the points test, which visas are affected and how this relates to those eligible students and former student visa holders for transitional arrangements is available. http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/whats-new.htm

    ACT SMP Released

    The ACT has just released its State Migration Plan. There are no major surprises except that a very wide variety of occupations are included, many of them "unlimited", provided that there is "current ACT employment". Otherwise the ACT English and work experience requirements don't appear to have changed significantly. Cooks and hairdressers are both "unlimited", although hairdressers do need an IELTS of 7.0 on each band. 111211 General Manager (ASCO 1112) Corporate General Managers Limited 131112 Sales and Marketing Managers (ASCO 1231) Sales and Marketing Managers Open 132211 Finance Managers (ASCO 1211) Open 132311 Human Resource Managers (ASCO 1213) Open 132411 Policy and Planning Managers (ASCO 1291) Open 132511 Research and Development Manager (ASCO 1299) Open 133111 133112 Building and Construction Managers (ASCO 1191) Construction Project Managers Project Builder Open 133211 Engineering Managers (ASCO 1221) Open 133311 133312 Importer/exporter/wholesalers (ASCO 1192) Importer / exporter Wholesaler Demonstrated ACT economic benefit Limited 133411 Manufacturers (ASCO 1193) Demonstrated ACT economic benefit Limited 133512 Prod.

    Queensland SMP released

    Hi.. please check QLD website. Cheers to all those waiting.
  13. Hi all, The South Australian SMP has now been released. See Home :: Make The Move Some occupations listed there are tagged "Not Available" for the remaining period of the 2010/2011 program year. In terms of IT occupations, SA are now sponsoring: 262111 Database Administrator 262112 ICT Security Specialist 262113 Systems Administrator 263111 Computer Network and Systems Engineer 263113 Network Analyst South Australia also advises that "All occupations listed (whether 'Available' or 'Not Available') will receive Priority Processing 2 by DIAC". This means that if you have been sponsored by SA previous to the SMP being released and your occupation is on the new SMP (even if it's 'Not Available'), you will be on Priority 2. Happy new year to all, by the way! Cheers Peter

    TAS SMP released today

    For those who didn't read it in the other topic: :jiggy: Migrating to Tasmania : Tasmania - The life you've been looking for
  18. Please See: http://www.comlaw.gov.au/comlaw/Legislation/LegislativeInstrument1.nsf/0/2C492BB21C0997E9CA2577EE0018A41F/$file/10089LI.pdf
  19. Hi all, Victoria released their SMP today (1 Nov 2010), one day before they formally enter caretaker mode for the state election. Some MODL/CSL IT occupations/specialisations have been preserved in the new SMP, so that would be good news for people holding 2231-79 MODL/CSL type assessment letters. More here: Eligibility Lists - Live in Victoria and Ptlabs Consulting - Articles on Australian Immigration Cheers Peter
  20. DIAC finally says something about the SMP! Check it out! http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/pdf/statmig-fs.pdf

    Tax on released equity??

    We are looking to release equity in our UK house to enable us to purchase over here in Aus. The accountant in the UK tells me that we are Tax-Free from the UK aspect but does anyone know if we would be liable for Australian Tax on the money we bring in? Also is there any timeframe on bringing money over after your initial arrival? Thanks
  24. Hi ya Just wondering if I am reading this wrong...I logged onto WA website to see if SMP lists are being released and logged onto the following: http://www.dtwd.wa.gov.au/dtwd/detcms/portal/ From what I am reading they have been released but can someone please verify that I am reading it correctly or is this an old one. Can someone please have a look at the link above and correct me wrong!!!!!! I hope I amn't but I am blonde after all!!!!! :wub: Apologies if I am wrong and got peoples hopes up....best wishes Sue x
  25. Australian Government LURED us here by making us think that we would get permanent residency if we studied in Australia for 2 years and lodged our applications when the profession we studied for was still on demand, and now that they have taken our money (and I don't only mean the application fees, I mean rent, colleges, phone bills, transports, etc. - let's not forget that education is the 2nd largest export industry of Australia) and years of life, they wanna KILL our applications. If the Cap & Cease Bill is passed, it will be safe to say that International Students are COCKROACHES to Australia.
