    "The US military is poisoning the water in O’ahu"

    "As Director for the Sierra Club of Hawai’i Wayne Tanaka recently wrote in The Guardian, the US Navy’s Red Hill Fuel Storage Facility is “a massive underground ‘farm’ of 18-million liter fuel tanks and pipes just 100 feet above metropolitan O’ahu. Its construction began before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Since then, it has leaked over 180,000 gallons of petroleum into the groundwater aquifer that provides drinking water for over 400,000 residents and visitors from Hālawa to Hawaiʻi Kai.”

    Regardless of the major threat the facility poses to the local water system and demands from Native Hawaiians and supporters to address the crisis and hold the US military accountable, it wasn’t until hundreds of military families living near Pearl Harbor reported symptoms of petroleum poisoning that Red Hill’s operations were paused in late November. But the root causes of the environmental and public health crisis remain untouched and the fight to shut down Red Hill is still very much ongoing. In this segment of The Marc Steiner Show, Marc speaks about that fight with Mikey Inouye, an independent filmmaker born and raised in Hawai‘i, community organizer, and member of O‘ahu Water Protectors. The O‘ahu Water Protectors is an organization that formed out of a coalition of Kānaka Maoli organizers, Sierra Club members and supporters, Hawai‘i Peace and Justice, and other groups working toward sovereignty, decolonization, and demilitarization."

    In a tiny town called Tarcutta, almost exactly halfway between Melbourne and Sydney there's an American M1918 howitzer. Originally a French design, the Schneider, it was adopted by the Americans in WW1 and sold to Australia for use in North Africa in 1941.

    Thought I'd make the most of it while I was there.

    There's also a 25 pounder field gun, but there's a ton of those still around and there's only three of these Australian Schneiders.

    Norman Lindsay - Girls and Glory, watercolour Norman Alfred Williams Lindsay (1879 – 1969) was a versatile and prolific Australian artist, working as a painter, cartoonist, illustrator, etcher, sculptor and author. Lindsay was masterful with his drawing and painting technique, but his talent was often overshadowed by the controversy created by his works depicting paganism, eroticism, and attacking society's attitudes and morals. Lindsay was born in Creswick, Victoria and moved with his family to Melbourne. He tried attending drawing classes at the National Gallery School but quit after a few months. He began drawing for newspapers and worked as a ghost illustrator for his brother Lionel. Norman later attended life drawing classes and Lionel taught him how to etch. Norman focused on light and colour as he developed proficiency in watercolour and oils. Lindsay moved to New South Wales in 1901 where he worked for many years as the chief cartoonist for the Sydney Bulletin, his works often commenting on politics and society. His first novel was published in 1913. Lindsay became the highest paid Australian artist of is time.
