Sometimes you take where you live for granted, so this morning I decided to take a walk along the Cairns Esplanade with a camera.

From The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.
I love the grunge metal Uke. Now you're talking.
This is what ukuleles were made for!
This was featured on Costa’s Garden Odyssey (between ads) on SBS earlier this year.
The FLC is located just behind the Cairns School of Distance Education and next door to Trinity Bay High School.

John Menadue from the Centre for Policy Development has been calling for a parliamentary inquiry into the conduct of the media during the Federal election. If you would like to add your voice to his call for an inquiry, you may contact him here:

You can listen to his interview on ABC Radio HERE
It is interesting also to make comparisons with the New Zealand Media. This Radio New Zealand National session about the interrelationship between the blogosphere and the mainstream media is worth a listen.
It is from the Radio New Zealand Media Watch program (not to be confused with the not-our-ABC's Media Watch).

This video simulation takes you further and further away from Earth as you see the Sun come into focus, the orbits of the solar system shrink smaller and disappear, the constellations Sagittarius and Scorpio stretch and distort, and, as the Milky Way receeds, the spidery structure of millions of other galaxies come into view. Then, you reach the limit of the observable universe, the afterglow of the Big Bang. This light has taken more than 13.7 billion years to reach our planet. Finally it returns the viewer back to Earth, to two lakes that are nestled between Mount Kailash and Mount Gurla Mandhata in the Himalayas. This link is in HD so it may pay to pause and allow the data to download first. Don't forget to expand the video to fullscreen.
The structure of The Known Universe is based on precise, scientifically-accurate observations and research. The Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History maintains the Digital Universe Atlas, believed to be the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe.
