  1. A Chinese toddler was run over twice and ignored by nearly 20 passers-by in Guangdong Province in a case that has caused outrage around the world.:eek: It is a story that has deeply unsettled millions in China, posing troubling questions about whether three decades of headlong economic development has left nothing but a moral vacuum in its wake. It begins last Thursday when a two-year-old girl totters into a narrow lane in a wholesale market in the thriving industrial city of Foshan in Guangdong Province and is hit by a small, white van. The driver pauses, and then pulls away, crushing the child for a second time under his rear wheels. It is not the accident itself, but what happens next — or rather doesn’t happen – that has left millions of ordinary Chinese wondering where their country is heading. One by one, no fewer than 18 passers-by are seen on closed circuit television ignoring the girl as she lies, clearly visible in the road, haemorrhaging into the gutter. Not a single one of them stops to help. The first is a young man in a white T-shirt and trainers. He walks on past the prone form of girl who is by now bleeding profusely, without a second glance. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/china/8830790/Chinese-toddler-run-over-twice-after-being-left-on-street.html Is this the price of living and being brought up in such an Evil dictatorship....sad.:dull:
  2. Fingers crossed she is OK, maybe in the pound (at Austral I think which is a long way from Picnic Point) or in a 'friendly' household. He's got two dogs and one was handed in at the vets. The wind blew the gate open. My brother sounded angry but I think that just masked the worry. My niece's birthday too.
  3. Hey all, We are currently in NSW on a 457 visa. Hubby is a mechanic and we are sponsored by his employer who he has worked for since Nov 2010. We recently submitted our Form 80 to our migration agent who told us that we need to get hubbys skills assessed first. So, we contacted immigration who told us to contact Deewr who told us to contact tra who told us to contact vetassess who told us to contact immigration...etc...etc...etc..! Having made about 800 phone calls and being told something different every time, I am now on the verge of screaming! Does ANYONE know who we need to pay to get hubbys skills assessed? We are from the UK and he needs to be assessed as a motor mechanic. TRA say its vetassess and vetasses say its TRA as we are already in Aus. TRA say that we are classed as 'offshore' as we only have a temporary visa??? :arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh:
  4. The government are hell bent on privatising as many companies as possible and they want to bring in back door privatisation to the NHS. Some will say it has been like this for years, but the Con/Dems want to change how the NHS is running and the nurses have shown what they think, 99% vote of no confidence against Lansley............. what do any PIO NHS workers think.............. can you trust the alliance? And what do you think lies ahead for the NHS?

Andrew Lansley has been criticised for declining an offer to deliver a speech at the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) conference in Liverpool. He will instead hold a 45-minute Q&A with 60 nurses as part of the Government's "listening exercise" on the controversial NHS reforms. At the same time, angry nurses will vote on an emergency motion of no confidence in his ability to direct the reforms. The Government has come under repeated attack over the Health and Social Care Bill and is now using a "pause" in the passage of the legislation to listen to concerns. Julian Newell, an A&E nurse from Sheffield, told the conference: "I think it's a shame Andrew Lansley does not have the guts to come up and face congress as a whole. "I'm not sure it's the right thing to say we'll have a selected group of small people to meet with him. I would rather us say, if you can't face congress as a whole then we don't want to meet with him."
  5. EXCITING OPPORTUNITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FANTASTIC courier run for sale - catering for a niche market. At present 1 person is managing the run - HOWEVER - the potential is there to expand the run and employ staff. Either buy yourself a job for life - or expand and watch the $$$ roll in! Approx 9am - 5pm Mon to Fri (9am - midday Sat) Turnover $50K We started the run from stratch and Hubbie has been running it. Would be easy to expand as only 1 comptetitor on the Coast - the companies using us at present, use to be serviced by that business (another 1 man band - known for lack of customer service)!!! VW Caddy comes with the run - has factory fittted rear seat (which is removable) - to cater for 3 extra passengers! PM for further details - I can then pass on my phone number & we can chat!
  6. Hi all, I don't know if any one remember's my other post? We found out that my partner's occupation was on the WA SOL, after speaking with Engineer's Australia (very helpful) and finding out what his job title is called over there. So, all we have to do is check with the TRA, (who is the skills assessment authority for my partner's trade) the requirements of my partner's occupation. We have been passed from pillar to post....Engineer's Australia said its TRA, the TRA said its Engineer's Australia. Then after speaking with the TRA last night they said to ring the oversea's qualification unit WA (which ment staying up till 1am!), they said ring the national office for oversea's skill recognition. Who, in the end said ring the TRA!!!!!:arghh: The TRA shut at lunch times so we went to bed....will try again Sunday night, hopefully we will get to the bottom of this and find out if we have a chance at all this polava :rolleyes: Any advice would be very welcomed! Partner's trade is Mechanical Engineering Technician #312512 Cheers, Gem

    Will a SS list run alongside a SMP list?

    I keep thinking that I've sussed it in my head, then I read something else and get confused again. So back to the question, will each state have their own SS list AND their own SMP list or will their new SMP list take over from their old SS list?

  10. Hello Everyone, I'm going to take an extended holiday for a few months in the Brisbane area to make sure I really want to emigrate to Australia. I have no idea if I should buy or lease a car for the period of time I am there. I realise car hire is expensive, but I wondered if there was anything available as a longer term lease? Cars seem more expensive than over in the UK. I know NOTHING about mechanics, so I really need pointing in the right direction!! What does insurance compare like and what will I need? License/ no claims history? Also does anyone know the best way to access money from a UK bank account whilst I am over there? I am with the HSBC. Can you use a visa Debit? or is a credit card best? Which is the best way to exchange money?? SOOO many questions!!!! I know nothing!!:cute: Thanks!!!!!!!!!!! Barbie
  11. Hi all, I could not get a clear answer from my search of the forum and the immigration office website. Can i register a small business while being sponsored for a visa subclass 457? Basically, i'd like to keep working for my current employer, and at the same time run a little business 'in the background'. Thanks for your inputs! Cheers

    The school "run"

    Hi, new to the forum! My dh has just been offered a job in Sydney - we are excited and nervous at the same time! My question regards school locations. We are looking at renting in the Castlecrag area (North Shore), and really like the look of Trinity Grammar, located inner west. At home I make a 30 mile round school run trip, and was really hoping not to have to do this in Sydney. Do people make these type of trips to school. I have seen a bus runs from Northwood, so maybe that would be an option? There are a couple of other schools we like the look of, but Trinity stands out due to it's IB diploma course. Just curious if other parents make long journeys to school? Thanks
  14. please dont say yeah ....unless you actually use it !!! .....feeling very cold at the mo and have mine on quite a lot ...is it more expensive than running an electric fire [no gas ] mrs keily
  15. It seems to have gone quiet on the 175/176 visa grants. Have they reached their quota ? Are they revamping the CSL ? ....or am I just imagining its gone quiet ??:wacko:
  16. Well, we have been here for 10 weeks tomorrow, and to be honest, I am feeling completely run down and a bit fed up. Over the past four weeks or so I have had cold after cold, after tummy bug after cold. I have a huge crop of mouth ulcers and feel pretty yuk most of the time. Our eldest daughter has been having a few toddler tantrums and our youngest has teeth coming through and now has a cold, so I have been finding it hard to cope with them, especially since oh is working long hours and occasional six day weeks. I haven't really been out much recently, partly because I feel so yuk, partly because our eldests behaviour has been awful at times, and partly because I am not sleeping properly (disturbed nights with the girls mostly) so don't feel I can concentrate to drive properly. When we first got here I threw myself in to going out and doing things, but I feel that this may have been the wrong thing to do. The kids went from having daddy home all day every day (he finished work a few weeks before we moved) to having him gone in the mornings and not home until bed time. I feel that our toddlers tantrums may be in part due to this. My mum in law went on at me every time I spoke to her about going out and meeting new people etc, but with hindsight I feel that I would have done better just getting the children in to a routine that they felt comfortable with, and just taking it easy whilst we all adjusted to life before then going out to meet people. Now I feel like I have run out of steam, and I am not sure what to do for the best. I feel so run down and under the weather, and every time I start to feel a little bit better, I get stricken with another bug. I have started to take multivits in the vain hope that they might help, but other than that I have no idea. I don't feel homesick or anything and I am happy here, but I do feel a bit isolated I suppose, but only because I haven't felt well enough to go out. I presume that I am just catching these bugs because they are new ones. No idea why no one else has been unwell though. Perhaps it is something to do with the stress involved over the past few months. Any ideas how I can make myself feel better?

    can you run from the taxman

    If the taxman is after you for money, can you run to Aus, and will they bother to follow you if it's a small amount?
  20. Hi Guys, Well most of you seem to be talking about Jobs in Oz... but we run our own business in the UK and are hoping to transfer it over there. Being internet based we can take our main cleints with us without it effecting them at all... which is a bonus. And fate being a wonderful thing, since we decided to emigrate, 2 major business opportunities have come up in Oz!!! Anyone else? Meg xx
