"The problem that we see in Indonesia with essentially unrestrained deforestation going on is a bad message for the world."

... Bill Hare, CEO Climate Analytics
AFR, Oct 30th 2015.

"This is a climate catastrophe... The emissions from these fires are likely to add about 3% to total global greenhouse gas emissions from human activities for the year."

... Nigel Sizer, director World Resources Institute
AFR, Oct 30th 2015.

*Indonesia's clearing of forests for palm-oil plantations and woodland for paper sees the nation become one of the world's worst global warming offenders. Smoke from the fires (exacerbated this year by a strong El Nino) has affected neighbouring nations to the tune of billions of dollars in increased health costs and lost tourist dollars.

"I need an intellectual challenge. A supermodel... someone really, really famous (has been) begging (me for sex)... (but) it doesn't mean that I want to rip her clothes off and have sex with her. (I've even been attracted to women) who my friends might think are ugly. Apparently there's a term for someone who gets turned on by intellectual stuff. You know, just talking. What's the word? I want to say 'sodomy'?"

... Sean Rad, founder of hook-up app Tinder
AFR November 20th 2015.

*P.S. Sean... we're pretty sure that ain't the word... good luck with all your "intellectual" stuff.

"(The US Federal Reserve) are not raising them (interest rates) because Obama has asked them not to raise them.... (Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen is) highly political.

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for blowing up a Russian Airbus A321 over Egypt's Sinai desert on Saturday October 31st 2015.

Mine Dam Disaster in Brazil. ... November 6, 2015.

The wall of a huge mine-tailings dam in Espirato Santo, Brazil has collapsed engulfing a nearby village in a sea of toxic mud.

At least 13 people are confirmed dead but it is certain more bodies will be found eventually as rescuers face the daunting task of poking around in the putrid, toxic sludge; 22 people are still missing.

The toxic waste (high in arsenic and mercury) has worked its way down 400 miles of the Rio Doce river and is now spilling out into the Atlantic ocean. The spill is Brazil's worst ever environmental disaster.

The mine's owner deny reports of an earlier report warning of design flaws in the dam system. The compensation and clean up bill is expected to reach well over USD$5 billion.

$80m Diamonds for Billionaire's Daughter: ... November 12, 2015.

Hong Kong billionaire Joseph Lau has just bought 2 more diamonds for his 7 year-old daughter, Josephine.

One diamond (16.08 carat, pink) was purchased at Christie's for $28.5m and named "Sweet Josephine". The other, the most expensive diamond ever auctioned, was purchased at Sotheby's in Geneva (12.03 carat, large blue) for $48.5m and renamed "The Blue Moon of Josephine". These are in addition to the blue 7.03 carat diamond purchased in 2009 at Sotheby's for $9.5m and simply called "Josephine".

Looks like Josephine is off to a pretty good start. The billionaire (ranked 114th richest in the world by Forbes at $9.8billion) was convicted of bribery and corruption charges in Macau in 2012, but avoided prison because there is no extradition treaty between Macau and Hong Kong.

The recently renovated "Motel 6" had around 65 guests staying in 42 occupied rooms. The quick-thinking manager averted a major catastrophe by sounding the alarm... "My gut told me to and I'm glad I did because it gave us time to get everyone out."

Smokestack Topples on Excavator: ... November 25, 2015.

The demolition of 158 foot tall smokestack almost finished very badly for an excavator driver in Pell City, Alabama.

Two attempts to topple the 118 year-old structure with demolition charges failed to bring it down, and only opened up a large hole near its base.

The driver moved his excavator in planning to encourage the smokestack to fall away from him. Instead it fell back on top of him... all 2.6 million tons of it, crushing the cabin. Miraculously, he emerged unharmed.
