True Blue got a bit of a promotion last I heard as a Technical Advisor and Head of Global Football Operations of the Indian Super League club Odisha FC.

I emailed IgnisExcubitor a while ago, but never got an answer either :(

Rare pink handfish spotted in Australia for first time in decades

 Watch: Rare pink handfish spotted in Australian waters

A rare "walking" handfish which is native only to Australia has been spotted for the first time in 22 years off the Tasmanian coast.

The pink handfish was last sighted by a diver off Tasmania in 1999 and has only been seen four other times.

Fearing for its survival, officials had recently classified it as endangered.

But Australian researchers say they have found it again, on a deep sea camera recording taken earlier this year in a marine park.

The new vision shows the fish in deeper and more open waters than it had lived in previously.

Scientists had thought the fish was a shallow water species that lived in sheltered bays - but it has now been found at a depth of 150m (390 ft) off Tasmania's wild south coast.

"This is an exciting discovery and offers hope for the ongoing survival of pink handfish, as clearly they have a wider habitat and distribution than previously thought," said lead researcher and marine biologist Neville Barrett, an associate professor at the University of Tasmania.

As per their name, the species has over-sized "hands" on which they "walk" along the seabed in addition to swimming.

In February, his team had dropped a baited camera on the seabed of the Tasman Fracture Marine Park to survey the coral, lobster and fish species down there.

The protected park - the size of Switzerland - is known for having a long crack in the earth's crust that has allowed marine life to be found in depths of over 4,000m.

A research assistant trawling through the footage in October spotted the peculiar creature among the crowd of larger animals attracted to the bait.

"I was watching one of our rough videos and there was a little fish that popped up on this reef ledge that looked a bit odd," said Ashlee Bastiaansen from the university's Institute of Antarctic and Marine Studies.

"I had a closer look and you could see its little hands," she told the ABC.

The vision shows the 15cm fish emerge from a ledge after being disturbed by a rock lobster.

At first curious about the commotion, it observes the scene for a few seconds before swimming away.

"In that time it's given us a really great head-on piece of imagery ... to absolutely categorically identify the species and measure its size," Associate Prof Barrett told the ABC.

"We're quite excited to be able to use the range of techniques now and really see how important these deeper habitats are for such a rare species."

Pink handfish are one of 14 types of handfish seen around Tasmania, the island south of the Australian mainland.

I have been speaking to some of my mates about it and I've posted online on other places but I absolutely blew my fucking dacks when I saw the PM on the telly during the cricket. Has any other PM spruiked himself like that during a live sports event? Then leach off cricketer's dead wife and lecture women about breast cancer? Then having the gall to do so while cutting funding to medicare?

@Khan of TF365 a mate of mine told me that even Imran Khan (from what I am told is a populist) wouldn't come onto a televised match to spruik himself, and he fucking played the sport for thirty years. Is that true?

That is correct. Despite his narcissist nature, saying some stupid things, he manages himself well on such occasions

I was going over some news stories from my youth I had forgot about, Bali Bombings, Schappelle Corby, Bali 9, tell me why is Bali still so popular?

People in WA are utterly obsessed with Bali. I must be one of the only Perthians who hasn’t been (except two layovers), nothing literally appeals to me there. It’s cheap and close but….so what? Basically Australia is a huge bogan cesspool haha

Call for Australian eyes in the sky

Australia doesn’t have enough space. And that’s a severe national security risk, warns the Australian Academy of Science.

Storms, drought, fish stocks, volcanic ash – their behaviour can only be accurately tracked and predicted with regular, reliable satellite observations.

But our weather data comes from Japan. Our environmental monitoring is done by the US. A whole host of other practical information comes from international Earth observation satellites.

“This poses a significant sovereign risk as growing environmental, commercial and geopolitical stresses mean Australia’s future access to this data is far from guaranteed,” a briefing by the Australian Academy of Science warned yesterday.

The implications are profound.

The director of UQ’s Remote Sensing Research Centre, Professor Stuart Phinn, points to the volcanic ash cloud currently drifting towards Australia after Tonga’s catastrophic eruption.

Where it is, how high it is – all are vital, as the ash can seize aircraft engines.

“You can’t get this information without having Earth observation satellites in place,” Phinn warns.

And we only have that information thanks to the good grace of others.

“This plan that’s being proposed will help Australia build a capability that will help its governments, its industries, and defence forces and our communities,” he says.

Australian twitter is a left vs centre cesspool at the best of times, but if there's one unanimous point of common ground it's that Morrison is arguably the worst prime Minister we've had. Barely a human. No principles. No beliefs. 100% reactive. Prioritises nothing except opportunities to jump into frame with two thumbs up hucking "how good?".

I hated Tony Abbott, but at least he was, at his core, a person with some convictions, horrible though they were.

Can’t really disagree with that at all. Hated Abbott but you could see what he believed in etc.
