Your Tax Dollars at Work… For Rick Goddard!

Rick Goddard has subsidized his campaign with your federal tax dollars – and refuses to pay you back.

On June 23, 2008, the Vice President flew into Macon on Air Force Two. After landing, the Vice President was driven to Perry where he spoke as the guest of honor at Goddard’s fundraiser that evening. The cost of the trip? According to data published by the

Dying to Win: the strategic logic of suicide terrorism | Vibewire 3.0

Ever since September 11 we’ve been told that we live in a very different world, a new era of previously unforeseen dangers and challenges. Undoubtedly, one of the most frightening aspects of this new world (dis)order is the rise of suicide terrorism.

For most people, the concept of committing suicide for political gain seems alien and illogical. What drives people to such a desperate and gruesome form of warfare? More importantly, how

Vibewire.net > filmwire > Reviews > Thunderstruck by Gael Allan

Before I begin my review, I’d like to tell you about the ingredients the Aussie film that I’d like to see would NOT have:
1. Heavy drinking larrikins who use the word ‘mate’ too much and refer to themselves as ‘battlers’ or ‘underdogs’.
2. Cringe worthy stuff like scenic shots of the Sydney Harbour Bridge (According to my geographically gifted partner, you wouldn’t go on the Harbour Bridge to drive to Freo no

Petrol prices need to stay high | Vibewire 3.0

Develop, they will need more and more fuel, which means less for everyone else. Combined with industrialised countries’ already high consumption of oil, prices will rise as demand increases but supply doesn’t – although we’ll get back to this.

Further down the production line, the current rise is also partly because a good chunk of American refining capacity was knocked out by Hurricane Katrina, leading to a global shortage of petrol products.

The South End – WSU professor looks into Toyota’s future

More than one in six American drivers own a Toyota, according to an Edmunds.com report.

While not nearly that many have vehicles potentially affected by the recent uncontrollable acceleration issues, the problem has many looking for answers. Among those people are Toyota executives.

“I think we outgrew our engineering resource,” said James Lentz, president of Toyota Motor Sales USA in a Feb. 23 congressional hearing.

Lentz said 70 percent unintended of acceleration complaints are

Interview with Vladimir Strezov | Vibewire 3.0

What role do universities have in answering
environmental problems and sustainability? Do you believe that they are doing
enough?

Environmental issues and sustainability do
not always have simple solutions. Universities are centres for knowledge which
are seeking answers to the environmental concerns through research, but most of
the issues on sustainability depend on new technological developments and feasibility
for their wider use. This is in particularly the case for the reduction of
greenhouse gas emissions. Solutions do exist, but

The case for congestion charges | Vibewire 3.0

The last column was mostly about abortion. So let’s make up for the lapse in actual economic analysis by talking about…traffic jams? Why, yes. Traffic jams are an economic problem with a possible economic solution. Sitting in a traffic jam is a waste of time and money that arises through a misallocation of resources and wrong incentives. But there may be a way out. It’s virtually guaranteed to be unpopular, but

Independent Gay Forum – Educating Gays

ONE OF THE ENDURING HOPES of my life is to find an issue about which the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force is right. But life, being a vale of tears, has confounded me. So it is that NGLTF has reacted to President Bush’s proposals on education with error not matched since the group declared its solemn opposition to the Gulf War ten years ago.

Bush’s education reform package includes two features

Upon reading the press release from Zomba Records, mentioning rock greats Led Zeppelin and Queen in the same sentence as an unknown (to me) Melbourne five piece called Sneak, I must admit I was excited. However, much to my subsequent disgust, I was sucked in by a record company’s publicity machine, and despite being healthily cynical and generally disregarding reviews from those with corporate interests, I was shocked by what I

The Baptist and Bootlegger: collusion of corporate interest and societal good

Conscription into polarised rank and file camps of ecofundamentalist green arm band zealots and industry funded climate change denialists is edging many into an early onset of climate change fatigue. What should be a grand evolution of environmental economics has denigrated into a fatalistic dualism of morality and economy.

The Baptist and Bootlegger theory of the motivational forces that underpin climate change action, originally utilised to the explain the first round of
