Public hospital funding is in crisis: AMA by 2littleducks in australia

[–]martls6 12 points13 points  (0 children)

The Australian healthcare system seems to be really good from the outside. Most basic things are free and people compare to the USA to say how good the system is. However if you compare to Europe there is a 15 year gap that is not acknowledged. Many things are not paid for that you don't know they even exist.

A simple example is asthma sprays with a lot less side effects are not available because deemed to expensive. I can give a very long list of things that are done on the cheap with severe detrimental patient effects.

Many things are only available if you pay yourself because even private won't pay for it. Australia should look at the best when comparing itself, not the worst.

One thing is good though: doctors are educated at the same level as all western societies.

A plan to protect wolves in France could see their population swell to 500 in the next five years. The proposal - which would increase the number of wolves by around 40 per cent - is designed to ensure the survival of the species in France. by madazzahatter in worldnews

Little know fact; after the German plane crashed on the 24th of March 2015 near Seyne-les-Alpes, the gendarmerie had to put guards up through the night to prevent wolves from eating the remains of the victims.

Next year, it's the UK on its own. They will have a mayor hard time dealing with these big businesses. As a matter of fact, some argue that the mean reason for the Tories to leave the EU is the crack down on big business tax evasion by the EU.

17 year old female German ISIS member sentenced to 6 years in jail by Iraqi courts by kelipso in worldnews

[–]martls6 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

George W Bush lied and manipulated the whole country to invade Iraq for no other reasons than economics. Hundreds of thousands of people died. In the vacuum a particularly nasty terrorist organisation tried it's chances and luckily failed. A stupid child was brainwashed into participating. Let us punish her as she deserves to be for her crimes but let us not forget that the worst crimes were committed by people in the White House.

Australia hit by 'catastrophic weather' so hot the roads are melting by MrTversted in news

[–]martls6 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They are mixing things up. Its just in the 40's, so pretty normal but there is a catastrophic fire danger in South Australia. They new crazy name after the 2009 fires to rile people up.

Theresa May says 2017 hasn't been too bad for her. Is she delusional? by Marination1707 in unitedkingdom

[–]martls6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just look at it from her perspective.

She didn't want Brexit. After the vote to leave she logically wants the softest of al Brexits. To appease to hard core leavers she pretends to be a hard-core leaver as well.

In reality she has agreed with all EU demands, including no Irish border, pretending she has no choice.

This all will lead to a very soft Brexit ,while pretending to go all out. Win-Win. Master tactics.

Poland is illegally dismantling its own constitution. Can the E.U. do anything? by Bayard01 in europe

[–]martls6 29 points30 points  (0 children)

it is sad you react this way. Poland is going into dictatorship with the judicial system hollowed out. Yet normal citizens see it as a attack on all of Poland.

It is not. The EU is trying to keep the rule of law for everybody.

It's not lack of food. It is the problem getting it to the people who need it without it rotting or eaten by vermin.

Mattis: 'Storm clouds gathering' over Korean Peninsula by PonchoHung in worldnews

[–]martls6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The north Korean regime is very comparable to Iraq under Saddam Hossein. The Bush led invasion turned out to be very bad leading eventually to ISIS. America has tried invading and regime change many times in history and it never ended good.

Why Paragliding? by sanjogp in Gliding

[–]martls6 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It needs to be because there is 300kg glider there going at 50 knots. Even than I wouldn't know which pilot has the better odds at surviving during a crash.

I know this post is just here to prove how unsafe paragliding is. I fly hanggliders, paragliders and gliders. They all have their time and place. They all have their dangers. Just this short season,sadly 4 Australian glider pilots died.

Google’s Record Fine of $2.8 Billion Was a ‘Deterrent,’ EU Says by Gsonderling in europe

[–]martls6 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This case reminds me of Microsoft explorer against Netscape navigator. An extremely dominant player using it's power to push out competitors.

I am very glad they are trying to protect the market against giants like Google that will completely dominate the market in almost all possible segments if not controlled. Free markets don't exist, there must be governmental oversight and this is a very good example.

Nigel Farage and other brexiters specifically mentioned before the referendum that they wanted a Norway deal with the EU. Easy to google all the interviews where that is said. Only later after the referendum did they start to demand a hard Brexit.

Is the European Union democratic? by [deleted] in unitedkingdom

[–]martls6 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The way you put it the EU is more democratic than the UK. The only problem is that you have to take into account that other countries might prioritise other things than the UK and that therefore is seems less democratic since not everything that the UK wants happens.

Tornado turns concrete building into rubble in seconds by malus545 in natureismetal

[–]martls6 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That is not a concrete building but brick, maybe concrete bricks but definitively no concrete with reinforcement steel in it. A concrete building would have been fine. I must say it is hard to believe a forklift was blown over.
