PROTECTING FORESTS.
SUSTAINING COMMUNITIES.

The karri, jarrah, tuart and tingle forests are the heart of Australia’s South West. Western Australians love them and want to see them protected.

Protecting native forests, ensuring their health and vitality, supporting sustainable forest enterprises and transitioning the timber industry will bring tremendous environmental, social and economic benefits to the South West and the whole of Western Australia.

For many years we have been told that forest protection is in conflict with economic prosperity and employment. But as you’ll see, that is not the case. The timber industry is not profitable and relies on our taxes to stay afloat. Mills are closing and workers are losing their jobs. A well managed transition is overdue and its time has come.

We welcome your support and involvement as we put the FORESTS FOR LIFE plan into action. On this site you will discover what’s happening right now in the forests, what we need to do about it and how we can create hundreds of jobs, grow our own timber and deliver profound environmental benefits.

We encourage you to sign up, contact us, share the information and donate. Together we can make this happen!

Keep the Community in Your Radio

The Federal Budget contains cuts of $1.4 million p.a., funding that currently keeps community radio stations broadcasting on digital in 5 capital cities. Community radio’s standing alongside public and commercial broadcasters is at risk. 

The good news is that community radio has great community support and during this election campaign we’ll be speaking up loud and clear and calling for both the Coalition and Labor to restore the funding if they win government.

Sign the petition below and we’ll make sure that both Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten get your message.

Petition

Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten, as a supporter of community radio I’m asking you to reinstate funding to keep community radio on digital if you win government.

Community radio serves so many Australians; from radio reading for people with a print disability to programming in the different languages spoken across our country, to Indigenous broadcasters, faith based stations, regional stations and youth stations.

Please don’t leave community radio behind.

Marine reserve the size of Mexico!

Posted on 9th August 2014 by Brett Caporn (LRRecords) in must see must do,web - Tags: , , , ,

Right now, the US government is receiving public comments on whether or not to create theworld’s largest Marine Protected Area in the Pacific Ocean. But President Obama is underenormous pressure from a powerful fishing lobby to water down the plan.

We can’t let that happen — majestic whales, turtles and fish stocks are all disappearing. Scientists say the best way to save our oceans is to protect large swaths from exploitation so that marine life can recover. Four years ago, we played a pivotal role persuading the UK government to create a massive marine sanctuary in the Indian Ocean, and the UK Foreign Ministry cited our campaign in its announcement. Now, if we all speak out, we can create a reserve the size of Mexico!

If we send Obama a tidal wave of global public support now, we will empower him to counter opposition and help save our oceans for generations to comeSign the petition below and tell everyone — let’s deliver one million voices before the official consultation closes in days:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/ocean_of_hope_loc/?bVtZWbb&v=43628

The reports are dire: in less than 4 decades, our oceans could be completely fished-out and coral reefs might be dead within our grandchildren’s lifetime! This new plan alone won’t be enough to fix the problem, but it could start turning the tide against global ocean destruction — it will not onlydouble the worldwide oceanic area that is fully protected, but also encourage other governments to follow suit.

Obama says he is willing to use executive action to implement the plan, but a powerful fishing lobby is trying to sink it with misleading propaganda. They say the sanctuary will hurt their business, but 95% of the fishing they’re talking about happens outside of the protected zone.Other interests want to keep the area open for future drilling and mining, which could be disastrous.

The comment period is only open for a few more days, and on August 11th the government will consult with local interest groups in Hawaii to scope out the plan. If we build a million strong global petition now and deliver it straight into the White House and the Hawaii meeting, flood the official consultation with support, and run a poll that shows massive public support near the site, we can drown them out.

With the greatest ownership of ocean in the world, the US now has a tremendous opportunity in the Pacific. Let’s drown out the opposition, and lay the foundation for protecting our oceans from exploitation. Sign the petition below, and forward it to friends and family:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/ocean_of_hope_loc/?bVtZWbb&v=43628

Our oceans are being decimated by a myriad of threats. But time and again Avaaz members have rallied to save our precious marine life. We have helped secure massive ocean sanctuaries before and plans to protect tuna and whales. We can win this!

With hope,

Danny, Luis, Lisa, Andrea, Ricken, Ana Sofia and the whole Avaaz team

OM UNIT & MORESOUNDS – Nuff Music

ROCKWELL – INeedU/1_2_3_4


Review:
One of drum & bass’ true innovators, Rockwell spends his time wisely over at Shogun Audio creating only the best messed-up beats from a mind-bendingly diverse spectrum of influences. “INeedU” is a skitterish firefly of a track, complete with hyped-up ADD beats stolen from a Rave mixtape circa ’93 and samples from every corner of his record collection. “1_2_3_4″ features harsher than harsh pads throughout, creating a hard techno blast through the neon wormhole of Rockwell’s D&B fever fit. More Bangface than Sun and Bass, it’s an amazing mental breakdown of a tune that somehow works itself out into quite the little mover. Be prepared for a scare.

Juno Plus is a London based online editorial hub affiliated with Juno Records that has been in operation since September 2009.

We aim to focus on all manner of electronic music, looking to give a balanced viewpoint on established artists and labels as well as the boutique operations and producers that might fly under the radar of wider appreciation. Juno Plus take particular pride in championing vinyl-focused labels that place importance on quality music and artwork. Our editorial team is small but eminently knowledgeable and we place an emphasis on quality over content, aiming to provide a wealth of information for followers of contemporary electronic music.

Along with our daily news feed and the regularly updated A/V stream, you can expect regular in-depth features and interviews with the artists and labels that are currently shaping our own musical tastes. We place a strong emphasis on ensuring our reviews of the latest EPs, albums and compilations read better than mere book reports. Noting that there’s a deluge of regular podcasts, our own growing mix series will remain on a fortnightly axis and hopefully not sacrifice the standards of quality set over its duration since it began in earnest in 2011.

“Always searching, never perching”
