Man threatened police with crowbar: court
http://www.illawarramercury.com.au/story/315362/man-threatened-police-with-crowbar-court/?cs=300

1st they sent me this bill, I looked into how Rent Was calculated,

Water rates + land rates + 10% for market rates insurances ect are added together, to arrive at a total cash requirements  re  property, and divided by the number of payments per year   to arrive at a rent calculation.

ie     Water already calculated in your rent, unless you  use excess water then meter will  show and charges will appply.

As one can see i had $320.00 i rent credits

Note they took a fortnights rent 30/5/12 , also after i was evicted!

Above  their  alledged un metered Guestimated water charges, when how many gig a litres of fresh water flow from the murray darling into the sea, Daily?

How much did they give away to forigners ? and charge you weekly for  same ?

Remember the Drought, then the Desalination plant that had to be built  out of fear  no water for future,

A contribed shortage for profits!

Is the  Human services Department now the Water authority or are these guys?

now the Water Act

At least these documents made it as far as the bar table  in crt 6 wolongong local.

What about the International Property Maintenance and Security codes of 2006 which are  ignored?

And the have the Hide to  call me

Then a month later

So thanks to Terry Alan and Adam Cook and

Ive Been Evicted, I rang Disability Advocates for help and  it was intimated i was  mentally ill.

I lost my Washing machine, because a rental authority deduction form  that wasnt sent  with origional paperwork when new  tennant informs lessor thru  lessee the lessorr  waits for 3 monts  and sends  lease holding tennant a bill for $900.00

After attending court Im now facing $450.00 in fines

so from 2  pensioners, Public servants who proport to be following Best Practice and their  Mission Statements and Statements of Values  whilst ignoring Sect 53 or our constitutioin and human rights and weights and measures !!

      A $10,000 corporate box at the football, limousines and political party donations.

      These were just some of the big spending, as well as wages, which Australian Water Holdings then billed back to Sydney Water as expenses, a corruption inquiry heard yesterday.

      The money tap had been turned on for the company that had won a lucrative deed of contract to provide water infrastructure in Sydney’s north west but the ICAC heard yesterday that Sydney Water was rebuffed when it attempted to clarify what exactly it was paying for.

      LIBERAL FUNDRAISER DI GIROLAMO ‘WAS PAID $250,000’

      The inquiry is examining explosive claims that figures from both sides of politics were engaged with AWH CEO Nick Di Girolamo during his attempts to secure a lucrative public private partnership with the successive Liberal and Labor government that could have secured AWH shareholders up to $200 million.

      ICAC heard yesterday that Mr Di Girolamo was to be paid $1.25 million a year for coming on board as a co-director of Australian Water — a fee that was to be reimbursed by Sydney Water due to the long running deed.

      But it was not the only bill being paid by Sydney Water.

      Records of AWH payments tabled in ICAC show that in 2009 and 2010 AWH also paid more than $66,000 in monthly $7333 payments to the company Eight by Five.

      The next ICAC inquiry will investigate whether it is an alleged slush fund connected to the former Liberal minister Chris Hartcher.

      The documents also show $6585 worth of payments to the Italian Chamber of Commerce in 2009, of which Mr Di Girolamo was a prominent member. Australian Water Holdings even billed Sydney Water for more than $250,000 in legal fees which it was using to fund its own legal dispute with Sydney Water over payments that the government agency labelled “extraordinarily high

    According to the WHO, each human being requires a bare minimum of 20 litres of fresh water per day for basic hygiene;[11] this equals 7.3 cubic metres (about 255 ft3) per person, per year. Based on the availability, access and development of water supplies, the specific usage figures vary widely from country to country, with developed nations having existing systems to treat water for human consumption, and deliver it to every home. At the same time however, some nations across Latin America, parts of Asia, South East Asia, Africa and the Middle East either do not have sufficient water resources or have not developed these or the infrastructure to the levels required. This occurs for many varied reasons. It has resulted in conflict and often results in a reduced level or quantity of fresh water per capita consumption; this situation leads toward disease, and at times, to starvation and death.

  3. “The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism

    It does not matter if the war is not real, or when it is real, it does not matter if victory is not possible…..
    The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous…..The essential act of modern
    warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labor…. A hierarchial society is only possible
    on the basis of poverty and ignorance…In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society
    on the brink of starvation…..The war is waged by the ruling group against it’s own subjects,
    and it’s object is not victory over Eurasia or East Asia ( or Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan,
    or Libya, or now Iran) but to keep the very structure of society intact.” George Orwell

    A “resident” is not the same as an “inhabitant”. According to Black’s Law Dictionary, First Edition, a “resident” may not be entitled to all the privileges as an “inhabitant”. It further states that a resident is “also a tenant…obliged to reside on his lord’s land”. Whereas a “domicile” is that place where one sleeps and intends to stay with his family, aka “shelter”, his “residence” is merely a temporary place from whence he eventually intends to return to his “domicile”. The domicile is the fruit of his labor while the residence is a place he has temporarily gone for business, or to make a living, with the intent of returning to his “shelter”.

    “The people of the United States resident within any State are subject to two governments: one State, and the other National; . . . . . The citizen cannot complain, because he has voluntarily submitted himself to such a form of government. He owes allegiance to the two departments, so to speak, and within their respective spheres must pay the penalties which each exacts for disobedience to its laws. ” U S v. CRUIKSHANK, 92 U.S. 542

    ”You are going to make things worse,” he said. ”It was a family argument between two girls and police pepper-sprayed my f—ing family. That’s my whole f—ing family.”

    Relatives in court appeared upset, crying as Magistrate John McIntosh asked Adele Mehanna to stop interrupting proceedings.

    For a time, a director on the board of the company’s Queensland subsidiary was Santo Santoro, a former minister
    in the Howard government who resigned in disgrace for failing to properly declare his shareholdings.

    The company also employs John Wells, a spin doctor with extensive Liberal Party connections.

    For almost three years until November last year, the federal senator and former finance director of the Liberal Party,
    Arthur Sinodinos, was the chairman of Australian Water Holdings.

    Last week, Mr Sinodinos said he, too, had 5 per cent of the company as part of his role, and he has recorded a
    shareholding in the company in his parliamentary pecuniary interest register.

    But Mr Sinodinos’s name is absent from the company’s official share register filed with the Australian Securities
    and Investments Commission. Instead, Mr Sinodinos said, Mr Di Girolamo was holding the shares on his behalf.

    Asked why the shares are not publicly registered with the corporate regulator, Mr Sinodinos said: ”Because it was
    on a gentleman’s agreement.”

    He said his agreement was that the trigger for the shares to be registered in his name was ”some realisation event”.
    He also said it would not be inaccurate to say a successful PPP was one such event.

    Since 1992, the company has been paid $580 million to roll out infrastructure to new housing estates in Sydney’s
    north-west on behalf of Sydney Water Corporation.

    Mr Di Girolamo has already had a significant win since the Coalition took government in March last year.

    In January this year, his company and Sydney Water entered a new 25-year exclusive agreement to give it the
    sole right to project manage the remaining half-a-billion dollars of water infrastructure work in the north-west growth
    centre.

    A spokesman for the Premier, Barry O’Farrell, said: ”Any agreement Australian Water Holdings has with
    Sydney Water was negotiated and agreed by Sydney Water at arm’s length from government, as is appropriate.”

    Since about 2004, the company’s main goal has been to convince the state government to sell it Sydney Water’s
    activities in the north-west growth centre, though the O’Farrell government said it had not received a formal bid
    from the company.

    This would be a deal worth billions of dollars, according to a senior government source.

    Australian Water Holdings has extensive connections with the Liberal Party. In the past five years it has donated at
    least $80,000 to the Coalition, and has used Michael Photios, a member of the NSW Liberal Party’s state executive,
    as a lobbyist.

    Mr Di Girolamo said he had also held meetings with other members of the NSW cabinet, including the
    Water Minister, Greg Pearce, and the Treasurer, Mike Baird.

    Eighty per cent of these customers read their own meters and discovered they were being charged for water they were not using.

    Opposition water spokesman Walt Secord is calling on the state government to review Sydney Water’s process in estimating a household’s water usage, and is urging people to do a check of their meters if bills appear too high.

    More than 200,000 households receive estimated bills.

    “With families facing cost of living pressures and living on tight budgets, it is unfair for them to be paying for water they are not using. Families are doing their part and conserving water, but they need to know they are being charged fairly,” Mr Secord said.

    The figures, contained in Sydney Water’s annual report for 2011-2012, show bill complaints have increased by 14 per cent since 2010.

    The total number of complaints received by Sydney Water has risen to 7527 from 7398 in 2010-11, with more than half related to bills.

    The 2011-2012 report showed that, after tax, Sydney Water made $367 million – $95 million more than forecast in the statement of corporate intent target signed by the Premier and Treasurer.

    TURTLE CREEK, PA — Police came barging into a woman’s home because they wanted to arrest the owner for the length of her lawn. A tenant, Robyn Ruckman, recorded the encounter. As she answered the door, police treated her rudely and started making demands. She told them her name but that wasn’t good enough. They wanted her to produce ID.

    After asking them to stay outside, police and health inspectors barged into her home.

    “You know, I don’t even see a nametag,” Ruckman told the officer.

    “I don’t give a sh*t what you see. Go get your ID. You see that?! It says POLICE.”

    Police were performing a 12-hour roundup of the town’s offenders, including the horrendous crimes of having uncut grass. The Lawn Nazis took care of business that day, and the streets were safe once again. Robyn Ruckman got off easy that day, as she was not the landlord. It was the owner of the long grass that was to be put behind bars.

    MPS question billion dollar Sydney Water deal

    NSW MPs demand answers over NSW Government water deals
    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-09-13/nsw-mps-demand-answers-over-water-deals/4957002

    The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) has reportedly seized all contracts and documents from Government agencies, including the state-owned water utility Sydney Water, covering its commercial arrangements with AWH.

    AWH took over an exclusive and unlimited deed of agreement first established by Rouse Hill Infrastructure Consortium to provide reticulation, drainage, sewage and waste water services to Sydney’s north-west growth centre in the early 1990s.

    Fees and charges for these services were provided by Sydney Water. By 2008 the value of these works were reported by AWH to be worth $1.4 billion for servicing 60,000 lots over 20 to 30 years.

    But six years ago Sydney Water wanted to terminate its agreement and became embroiled in a prolonged dispute only settled last year after negotiations which produced a new contract for 1,304 weeks – 25 years.

    Opposition rural water spokesman Steve Whan and Greens MP John Kaye have told 7.30 NSW the O’Farrell Government should table all relevant contracts and documents.

    “We need openness on this. How can you have an organisation like Sydney Water in dispute and voicing serious objection to the awarding of this contract without a public tender?” Mr Whan said.

    “The people of New South Wales have a right to know what’s in the contracts, to see them side by side, to work out what’s changed,” Dr Kaye said.

    “That’s why I’ll be asking the Upper House to order the O’Farrell Government to table them through a call for papers.”

    Regardless of what the ICAC does, the two parliamentarians say they want some “sunshine” on the arrangements so the public can see the public interest has been protected.

    AWH is currently headed by lawyer and businessman Nicholas Di Girolamo, a former chairman of the Wests Tigers rugby league club and the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

    He is also a prominent fund raiser for the Liberal Party. In July last year the O’Farrell Government appointed him to the board of the State Water Corporation, which manages rural dams and water assets.

    Mr Di Girolamo declined to comment to the ABC.

    Water Rate Concerns
    By Danielle Buckley
    Dec. 19, 2013, 10:29 a.m.

    Pensioners from a community housing block in Forbes have voiced their outrage at the water rates they are being charged by Housing NSW.

    The housing block, located in north Forbes, is made up of 13 one bedroom units, where tenants each currently pay $9 per fortnight.

    See your ad here

    Tony Higgins has been a tenant in the block for 18 months and he believes that this amount is almost three times more than other community housing water rates.

    “Others in community housing pay just $3.10 per fortnight which means they pay only $80.60 per year per house and we pay $234 per year per unit for the same water,” he said.

    “I’m just upset about paying three times more than what Housing NSW are being charged themselves.”

    While the Forbes Shire Council set the water rates for the town, they charge Housing NSW who in turn bill their tenants

    Current Housing NSW tenancy agreements declare that the water rate is set at 4.7 per cent of tenants rent, up to a maximum of $7.

    Yet at this rate, the pensioners are paying more than the Shire Council are charging Housing NSW.

    Mr Higgins is frustrated with this and believes that as tenants of community housing, their discounted rent should not mean they pay more for water and other amenities.

    “With our consumption under the shire council’s water rates we should have paid $790 for the past 12 months, instead we have paid a staggering $3042,” he said.

    “In my opinion, community housing should not be trying to recuperate some of the subsidy that we’re getting as pensioners in water rates,” he said.

    While the water rate charged by Housing NSW is set and therefore consumption should not alter the water bill, a spokesperson for the Department of Family and Community Services said if charges are high it is because of excess usage.

    “Tenants are responsible for excess water usage but Family and Community Services does not apply any additional administrative charges on top of this,” the spokesperson said.

    “Some tenants receive higher bills than they expect, but this is generally found to be due to them maintaining a garden or having a large family.”

    Yet neither Mr Higgins, nor any of the other tenants have families and as Mr Higgins explains, none of the tenants are avid gardeners.

      A $10,000 corporate box at the football, limousines and political party donations.

      These were just some of the big spending, as well as wages, which Australian Water Holdings then billed back to Sydney Water as expenses, a corruption inquiry heard yesterday.

      The money tap had been turned on for the company that had won a lucrative deed of contract to provide water infrastructure in Sydney’s north west but the ICAC heard yesterday that Sydney Water was rebuffed when it attempted to clarify what exactly it was paying for.

      LIBERAL FUNDRAISER DI GIROLAMO ‘WAS PAID $250,000’

      The inquiry is examining explosive claims that figures from both sides of politics were engaged with AWH CEO Nick Di Girolamo during his attempts to secure a lucrative public private partnership with the successive Liberal and Labor government that could have secured AWH shareholders up to $200 million.

      ICAC heard yesterday that Mr Di Girolamo was to be paid $1.25 million a year for coming on board as a co-director of Australian Water — a fee that was to be reimbursed by Sydney Water due to the long running deed.

      But it was not the only bill being paid by Sydney Water.

      Records of AWH payments tabled in ICAC show that in 2009 and 2010 AWH also paid more than $66,000 in monthly $7333 payments to the company Eight by Five.

      The next ICAC inquiry will investigate whether it is an alleged slush fund connected to the former Liberal minister Chris Hartcher.

      The documents also show $6585 worth of payments to the Italian Chamber of Commerce in 2009, of which Mr Di Girolamo was a prominent member. Australian Water Holdings even billed Sydney Water for more than $250,000 in legal fees which it was using to fund its own legal dispute with Sydney Water over payments that the government agency labelled “extraordinarily high

    Showering can make us sick: scientists

    Scientists from the University of Colorado have revealed the warm, damp, enclosed conditions of showerheads are the perfect breeding ground for mycobacterium avium — one of the pathogens responsible for causing respiratory illnesses.

    The findings also showed the water coming through the showerhead vaporised the bacteria in tiny water droplets, making it easier for people to breathe it deep into their lungs.

    Molecular biologist Norman Pace said the findings were a serious public health concern.

    “How many people do you know with a shallow cough? Probably a lot (and) I would bet that in a lot of cases mycobacterium avium is responsible,” he said.

    “(Showering is) like anything else — there is a risk associated with it.”

    “If you are immune compromised or are susceptible to pulmonary infections, take a bath instead of a shower,” she said.

    “If you are healthy and your immune system is functioning properly, you should not worry about the germs in your showerhead.”

    The study showed plastic showerheads were more likely to develop biofilms of germs than steel ones.

    Senator Sinodinos last week stepped aside as assistant treasurer pending the outcome of the ICAC hearing. He has denied wrongdoing.

    Earlier, Dr Schott said former NSW premier Nathan Rees had referred to Australian Water Holdings in conversation as a “bunch of crooks’’.

      Warrants to raid Seven over Schapelle Corby interview deemed invalid

      By Paul Bibby
      March 26, 2014, 12:32 p.m.

      Search warrants, used by the Australian Federal Police to raid the offices of Channel Seven in search of proof the network had made a deal with drug smuggler Schapelle Corby, have been ruled invalid and summarily quashed by the Federal Court.

      On February 18, federal police officers raided the network’s offices as well as Seven West’s publishing arm, Pacific Magazines, and the company’s lawyers.

      They seized hundreds of pages of documents allegedly relating to an interview deal with Corby.

      Seven and Corby’s sister Mercedes sued the AFP over the raids, claiming that they were unlawful.

      It emerged in court that the search warrants and accompanying certificates issued by a magistrate before the raids erroneously stated that those being raided were “reasonably suspected” of having committed an offence when this was never in fact the case.

      The warrants also stated that those being raided were “suspects” in an ongoing investigation.

      Lawyers for the police were forced to accept that neither of these assertions was correct, telling the court that they were the result of a clerical error.

    Water Corp posts $800m profit

    The Water Corporation has posted a record profit of more than $800 million just weeks after warning that budget cuts were pushing parts of its business to the brink.

    Handing down its annual report yesterday, the corporation said it had returned dividends and tax equivalents to the State Government worth $811 million in the 12 months to June 30.

    The figure – believed to be biggest profit recorded by a State-owned utility in WA – was 41 per cent higher than the year before.

    The result was based on a 16 per cent increase in revenue to $2.52 billion that had been caused by “strong population growth” and a big jump in developers’ fees.

    It also came on the back of an inflation-busting hike to water charges of 6 per cent despite claims from WA’s economic watchdog that consumers were already paying enough for water.

    Offsetting the profit result, which is the underlying measure of the Water Corporation’s financial performance, was a $566 million subsidy paid by the State to the utility.

    The subsidy was paid to compensate the Water Corp for providing services to unprofitable parts of the state, such rural and remote areas, as well as concessions to vulnerable customers.

    This meant the “net accrual” to Government was $245 million – up from $140 million last financial year and double what the corporation expected.

    Shadow water minister David Kelly said the profit result suggested the Government had its priorities wrong.

    Mr Kelly said the Government should plough the corporation’s profits back into the business or use the money to ease pressure on water bills.

    “When that accrual comes back to government . . . we spend it on vital infrastructure and services for the people of WA,” Water Minister Mia Davies said.

    Measurement Legislation
    Page Content
    The Commonwealth has a constitutional head of power for ‘weights and measures’. This is set out in section 51 (xv) of the Constitution. The Commonwealth also assumes a broader leadership and coordinating role to ensure that our national measurement standards across the physical, chemical and biological spectrums conform to international standards.

    The National Measurement Act 1960 establishes a national system of units and standards of measurement and provides for the uniform use of those units and standards throughout Australia to ensure traceability of measurement. The Act establishes a framework for the regulation of measuring instruments used for trade and provides for a system of verification of utility meters used for trade. The National Measurement Act was amended in 2004 to establish NMI and a statutory officer, the Chief Metrologist, with functions and powers relating to units and standards of measurement and to pattern approval.

    The National Measurement Regulations 1999 provide further detail for the application of the National Measurement Act.

    The National Measurement Guidelines 1999 govern the way in which Australian legal units of measurement may be combined to produce an Australian legal unit of measurement, and how they may be combined with prefixes to produce Australian legal units of measurement.

    here Weights and Measures Regulations Come From
    W
    The Division of Measurement Standards has been given the authority by the Legislature to adopt regulations in order to carry out the enforcement of Business and Professions Code, Division 5 (Section 12027). California weights and measures regulations are found in the California Code of Regulations, Title 4, Division 9. Some of the regulations are developed within the Division, and others are adopted by reference to another organization’s standards, publications, or handbooks as specified in the particular statute. The following are organizations that are utilized for that purpose.

    A word of caution to the weights and measures official
    As a weights and measures official, you will be provided with various program manuals, examination procedures outline, and other useful information that explains how to do your job. You must remember that these various manuals are only guidelines to assist you in proper testing procedures, inspection procedures, and sampling procedures. They are not the law and since they are guidelines, you may not reference them or their various sections as part of a Notice of Violation, a citation (Notice to Appear), or criminal or civil filing. You must reference the proper Business and Professions Code section(s) and the appropriate Code of Regulations section(s). The various manuals may only be used to explain how you performed your inspection, sampling, or testing.
