Rebecca Taylor and her English partner Jay Benger said there was a lack of visa options available for same-sex couples. But a subsequent visit to the Melbourne immigration office found the email was incorrect. The immigration department said they introduced same-sex policy into Commonwealth law from July 1, The changes included the recognition of same-sex couples for migration and citizenship purposes to ensure same-sex de facto partners had the same rights and responsibilities as heterosexual partners.

The Geelong ambassador extraordinaire for the Australian Deaf Games — and for people with hearing impairments generally — is a ball of energy despite his advancing years. Stan makes it clear from the outset that he has no hearing and no speech as he searches for white space on the sheet, pen at the ready. The normal three communications dimensions of seeing, hearing and speaking are suddenly reduced to sight only as Stan sets about inscribing his thoughts. A keen historian, Stan has an outline of the Geelong deaf community at the ready. The references begin in with a committee meeting of the Adult Deaf and Dumb Mission of.
In the first social evening for deaf people in Geelong was held with the formation of a regional committee. Although plans to purchase land and build a club premises never transpired, the Geelong Deaf Social Group has been going since, celebrating a 40th anniversary in Stan holds high hopes that the Australian Deaf Sports being hosted in Geelong starting this weekend will highlight the achievements of people with hearing impairment.

Premium quality, modern style and flexible design options Call Ziggy on 06 3 or call ss David Bayli 1 0 5 1 Monday - Friday 9am For 50 years Alcoa has diverted the lower Anglesea River from its original course — a biodiversity-rich braided river system — into a drain that now flows through the Alcoa Power Station grounds. The State Government and former Surfcoast Mayor Dean Webster seem to think that the report by Professor Maher has completely cleared Alcoa of having any impact on the biodiversity of the Anglesea River and the Anglesea valley.
The simple fact is that if you dam a river, change its course into a narrow channel and start a massive open cut mine into a substrate millions of years old, you are going to destroy an entire lower river ecosystem. The so-called natural fish kills, while maybe not caused directly by Alcoa emissions, are the result of human disturbance of naturally-occurring acid sulphate soils and soils containing metals and other containments that would otherwise be protected from erosion by dense vegetation cover.
This State Government will go down in history as the destroyers of the lower Anglesea valley. LIKE many Australians I was unaware of the cruel treatment of animals killed for the food chain until Animals Australia brought this issue to my attention. Are Australian animals protected? Just because this way of slaughtering an animal has been happening for hundreds of years is not a valid reason for it to continue. The letter calls for the practice to be imposed as a condition of sale and says it fits with Islamic teaching to prevent cruelty to animals.
I sincerely hope that this ritual slaughter of animals is stopped because it is cruel, selfish and unnecessary. Prime farmland at Bacchus Marsh is to be forcibly taken from Australians to fill ships with brown coal. The Ballieu government supports the development of new brown coal industries and just dithers in the background seemingly directionless and unable to come to any decision or give any leadership. Farmland does not need to be sacrificed in the national interest as 80 percent of mined coal is shipped overseas.
Mining projects should be banned immediately on food producing farmland where the minerals are exported. Our leaders are hurting future generations of Australians by sacrificing food producing farmland to turn Australia into a coal quarry for the world. Prime Minister Julia Gillard believes that coal burning is bad for the planet and future generations and is set to waste millions of taxpayer dollars on useless wind farms.
She should immediately ban all coal mining on farmland. Our farmland is our future. Our governments are nuts to sit on their hands and do so little to combat climate change. If the alien arrived in Geelong, he would think that Mr Barron is the ringleader of this madness.

Worldwide, the hottest year on record was , followed by The important point is whether there is a longterm warming trend. On that note, I challenge Mr Barron to prove that the world is not warming. There are some rules to this challenge, but they are very reasonable: First, he must take into account total heat content of the earth, not just variable temperatures. Second, any proofs based on air temperatures must be based on a long term trend and not comparison of selected years.
Third, any trends must take into account variables such as the La Nina affect which has caused reduction in air temperatures in recent years. Finally, this is an extremely serious and urgent issue and when letters with clear errors are printed it can do significant damage. Can I please urge the Independent to check closely any factual claims made in letters? Gavin Brown East Geelong. A visit to the website of this organisation will quickly assure the reader that they firmly back the science of manmade climate change.

Sniper Elite 4 , the stealthy shooter, is back with even more gruesome bullet time and enormous open-world levels to sneak through. While never quite as entertaining as core Halo, the Wars spin off offers something a bit different. This sequel brings more of the same tactical action, and there are multiplayer modes for up to six players, so that will get seriously intense.
Horizon Zero Dawn promises to take all the elements you love in an open-world RPG and turn them up to Epic story about fate, destiny, and identity? Cool weapons and combat options? Possessed robotic dinosaurs rampaging around attacking people? Ubisoft is ditching the advanced tech you might typically associate for the Ghost Recon franchise, making Ghost Recon Wildlands a more rugged, down-to-earth take on team-based military ops.

After nearly a decade of development and a leap from PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4, Persona 5 will finally, finally arrive in April While the role-playing game still follows high school students with supernatural powers in a highly stylized world, Persona 5 does represent a dramatic shift in tone for the series. Where Persona 3 and Persona 4 focused on fairly typical teens in unusual circumstances — secret paramilitary ghost fighters in the former, a Japanese riff on Scooby Doo mystery solving in the latter — Persona 5 follows a group of flamboyant young cat burglars.

What do we know about Red Dead Redemption 2?

What was a hilarious games-industry joke is now horrendous fact. Following on from the crushing mediocrity of the original game, Knack 2 sees all your favorite characters returning for the sequel, probably.

Otherwise, 2-in-1 laptops make life easier by taking on the duties of both laptops and tablets. Some are even impervious to drops and spills despite their touch screens. Notwithstanding, more conventional laptops still remain. Those interested in video editing and gaming are more concerned with fast-paced efficiency than svelte designs and seamless portability.

Food kept inside the fridge is thus tagged to the people who put them there in the first place. The Dividing Printer, as its name suggests does something simple yet smart. It mounts the printer on a rail and allows the printer to move left or right while printing documents. What this does is that it allows the printer to create actual, physical piles of paper that have been segregated from the get go.
It just adds a small bit of innovation elsewhere to solve the problem. We never get a chance to see how the hot and cold water blend together within the faucet, before it cascades out like a stream. The Pavati Tap builds upon this element. The result is a showcase of how the two streams of water can create drama whilst you wash your hands. Have you ever had a problem with forgetting which light switch stands for what light?
Taewon Hwang came with the great idea of creating a master light switch with a simple design that shows you what lights you are turning on or off. They can also be put in shops, restaurants, offices and because of their different that usual look they transmit a nice futuristic look.
The RIMA lamp is one like no other because of its interesting feature that allows you to control the light via four controller rings that you can slide. This beautiful lamp created by Matthias Pinkert has a processor which controls the heat, intensity, angle of the beam and color. This Sony Eclipse concept created by Hoang M Nguyen and Anh Nguyen is a media player that uses photovoltaic cells situated on its backside to draw in solar power. A strange but interesting lamp that will surely be sold really fast if it would be put in stores is this one created by Yeongwoo Kim. This is one of the cool gadgets that you need to have.
The solution is provided by Soledad Clavell and Marcos Madia who created this wonderful home technology that lights up the room when touching it. If you always wanted a example cool lights for your bedroom, this is it. This fireplace created by Camillo Vanacore for Electrolux is one of the home gadgets presented here that looks almost magical because of its transformation from off to on, from an opaque ceramic column to a transparent one.
Without using regular dish detergents, the Eco Cleaner makes the plates bright and fresh using ultrasonic waves to ionize food particles on the dishes, converting the food into reusable compost for plants. Less waste and more nutrients for plants are a good idea for the future and a solution for enriching the soil.

This wall has been passed around on the internet for some time and has become a neat attraction.
Washing clothes has never been so easy. With the incorporated basket you can load and unload the clothes in the washing machine as easy as 1, 2, 3. The spherical drum is moving on two axes washing your clothes better than the old washing machines that use only one axe. This is an interesting concept created by Seo Dong-Hun that allows you to create on the ceiling the light shapes you want. Literally, you can paint the ceiling with light.
Yeah, it sounds outrageously futuristic, but the system is actually not that strange. The water combines with a hydroelectric battery to generate an electrochemical reaction that lights it up. This surface tile is not for everyone but it is fun for sure, having the ability to morph the way you want it and create shapes and basic drawings on it. Ever wanted to age your wine so that it will be of a higher quality? Designer Mika Yamamoto has created this device that does this incredible thing.
The Wave uses magnetic cooling system that is based on the magnetocaloric effect, which is the ability of some materials to heat up when magnetized and cool when removed from the magnetic field. It reduces carbon emissions and increases energy efficiency. It also reduces the cost of electricity. This dishwasher beautifully designed by Guilherme Parolin makes the action of washing dishes a piece of cake thanks to its user friendly control panel.
Drying up a wet umbrella has always been a problem. This product with integrated LEDs in a plastic body is an interesting product for the people who read a lot and need a discreet light over their pages. Saving space is not its only feature, having a number of characteristics that qualifies it as a luxury item, like underwater jets or massage programs. Originally published Design Your way. Speech recognition systems, such as those that convert speech to text on cellphones, are generally the result of machine learning.
A computer pores through thousands or even millions of audio files and their transcriptions, and learns which acoustic features correspond to which typed words. But transcribing recordings is costly, time-consuming work, which has limited speech recognition to a small subset of languages spoken in wealthy nations. Instead, their system analyzes correspondences between images and spoken descriptions of those images, as captured in a large collection of audio recordings. The system then learns which acoustic features of the recordings correlate with which image characteristics.
And you do this for a large body of data. There are 7, languages, and I think less than 2 percent have ASR [automatic speech recognition] capability, and probably nothing is going to be done to address the others. But that correlation could serve as the basis for others. If, for instance, an utterance is associated with a particular class of images, and the images have text terms associated with them, it should be possible to find a likely transcription of the utterance, all without human intervention.
Similarly, a class of images with associated text terms in different languages could provide a way to do automatic translation. To test their system, the researchers used a database of 1, images, each of which had a recording of a free-form verbal description associated with it. They would feed their system one of the recordings and ask it to retrieve the 10 images that best matched it. That set of 10 images would contain the correct one 31 percent of the time.
The researchers trained their system on images from a huge database built by Torralba; Aude Oliva, a principal research scientist at CSAIL; and their students. But the ultimate aim is to train the system using digital video, with minimal human involvement. To build their system, the researchers used neural networks, machine-learning systems that approximately mimic the structure of the brain. Neural networks are composed of processing nodes that, like individual neurons, are capable of only very simple computations but are connected to each other in dense networks.
When a neural network is being trained, it constantly modifies the operations executed by its nodes in order to improve its performance on a specified task. The output of the top layer of each network is a 1,dimensional vector — a sequence of 1, numbers. The final node in the network takes the dot product of the two vectors. That is, it multiplies the corresponding terms in the vectors together and adds them all up to produce a single number. In ongoing work, the researchers have refined the system so that it can pick out spectrograms of individual words and identify just those regions of an image that correspond to them.
This work is one of the earliest efforts in this direction, and I was really impressed when I first learned of it. I am really curious to see how far they can take that. At 14, Kini first started to get interested in politics. High school was also where Kini became interested in computer science.
Kini set his policy interest to the side his freshman year, until he took 6. Four years later, Kini is now a teaching assistant for 6. With Weitzner as his advisor, Kini went on to work on a SuperUROP, an advanced version of the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program in which students take on their own research project for a full year. The process is time-consuming, slowing down the improvement of cybersecurity for all organizations involved.
Kini created a prototype of a system that could automatically screen information about cybersecurity breaches, determining what data had to be checked by a human, and what was safe to send along. Once finished with his SuperUROP, Kini became involved in the development of Votemate , a web app designed to simplify the voter registration process in all 50 states.
Kini is also involved in making changes within the Institute. As a member of the Undergraduate Student Advisory Group USAGE , Kini has been involved in exploring ways to revitalize the electrical engineering curriculum, redesigning the undergraduate lounge, and compiling a list of the resources available to Course 6 students. I should have known. Kini is especially interested in making sure students know about the MIT resources for prospective entrepreneurs, such as StartMIT , in which he enrolled last year.
StartMIT is an Independent Activities Period course designed to help students learn about what it takes to create a startup from the ground up. With the advice of over 60 speakers involved in the startup space, StartMIT offers practical advice on how to actually get a startup off the ground. But StartMIT helps bridge that divide. Technology is really a marvel. Originally published Popular Science. It was the same size and shape as a household refrigerator, and outwardly, at least, it had about as much charm. But Kleinrock was thrilled: It was much more important than that. This is only partly a philosophical question:
