    • Good music. (You try and tell the young people of that today, and they won’t believe you.)

  1. Where now for Julian?

    Here’s what we know so far about Swedish prosecutors’ unexpected decision to drop their investigation into a rape claim against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after almost seven years:

    .The decision was taken because “all prospects of pursuing the investigation under present circumstances are exhausted” and there is “no reason to believe that the decision to surrender [Assange] to Sweden can be executed in the foreseeable future”.

    .It means Assange no longer faces sex crime allegations in Sweden, though prosecutors stressed they are not making a finding on Assange’s guilt or innocence and the investigation could be reopened should he return to the country before the statute of limitation expires in 2020.

    .In London, the Metropolitan Police have said there is still a warrant for Assange’s arrest on the “less serious offence” of “failing to surrender to the court” in June 2012. It would be “obliged to execute the warrant” if Assange leaves the Ecuadorian embassy, it said.

    . It is not known whether US authorities are seeking Assange’s arrest for his role at the head of WikiLeaks, which has published tens of thousands of leaked classified US documents. There may be a sealed indictment.

    .WikiLeaks has tweeted after the Swedish announcement: “UK refuses to confirm or deny whether it has already received a US extradition warrant for Julian Assange. Focus now moves to UK.”

    .Per E. Samuelsson, Assange’s lawyer in Sweden, has told Swedish radio: “This is a total victory for Julian Assange. He is now free to leave the embassy when he wants. We have won the Assange case.”

  2. In my youth – up to and including my 20s – I was a complete and utter musical snob.

    My preferred styles were (1) classical, (2) jazz, (3) folk, and (4) so-called international music.

    These days I enjoy and, more importantly, appreciate, most styles.

    Still don’t like anyone’s swooning strings of the 1940s-early 1960s, or hip hop and its derivatives. Slide guitar, on the other hand …..

    When I was 20 I would have turned up my already turned-up nose.

  3. Was only joking re age vs music concern, will age musically disgracefully and defiantly 😆

    .

  4. A friend of mine just hasd a stage 3 lung cancer diagnosed. The radition oncologist basically said, ‘Don’y bother’.

    She is 64 and smoked for 50 years.

    And they shoot people for carrying a stash of drugs but allow tobacco drug pusher executives first class seats on the plane. Fckn murderers.

    • What sort of idiot commissions a designer dress to ‘celebrate’ the anniversary of a war?

  5. Isn’t the Endocrine system where Yoda lived?

    They lost me at obesity. Never mind the 60g (average) of refined sugar you’re eating every day, there might be something in the plastic container that’s making you fat…

    EDC home audits are the new Feng Shui.

    It’s an exercise in confirmation bias: “I’m an endocrinologist, therefore everything is caused by the endrocrine system/endocrine disrupting chemicals.” *

    (* “I’m a theoretical physicist that believes in a ‘multiverse’, therefore that slightly colder spot on the cosmic microwave background survey must be a parallel universe.”)

  6. Well, now they know it was all just a “negotiation tactic” the Russians won’t fall for it,will they?

    “A third government official briefed on the meeting defended the president, saying Trump was using a negotiating tactic when he told Lavrov about the “pressure” he was under. The idea, the official suggested, was to create a sense of obligation with Russian officials and to coax concessions out of Lavrov, on Syria, Ukraine and other issues, by saying that Russian meddling in last year’s election had created enormous political problems for Trump.”

    Mike Seccombe says that Turnbull leads a government that seeks political capital by making it harder for foreigners to settle or to buy real estate here, and that stresses integration and “Australian values”.
