Here’s this week’s compendium. This week…
1. the Australian parliament got hung, courtesy of voters . At least it wasn’t hanged.
2. for his ignominious burnout [2a] F1 driver Lewis Hamilton was fined A$500 but not convicted [2b]. His contrition was without conviction. I wouldn’t expect anything more from someone earning his living from F1.
3. Victorian Police’s Chief Commissioner Simon Overland, who last March was detected carrying bullets on to a commercial plane [3a] was labelled careless (by the Office of Police Integrity (!)) but otherwise exonerated [3b]. As per s.23(2A) & (2B) of the Civil Aviation Act 1988 [3c] it’s a strict liability offence. Mr Overland should be imprisoned for 2 years.
4. the BMJ reported that increasing the daily intake of green leafy vegetables significantly reduced the risk of type 2 diabetes . Maybe the reduced risk’s due to less junk food rather than a direct positive effect of the vegetables.
5. Get-It-Done Guy discussed ‘How to Make Hard Decisions’ . Scenario Decision Making sounds a good method.
Finally, I wish you, dear Farmdoc’s Blog readers, a wonderful week.
