Nowra resident fed up with Telstra, NBN after weeks without internet

When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.”  

— Maya Angelou, Phenomenal Woman

The Price of Everything asks why some artists are valued and others are not.

Fake Fake Indian call centre attempting to scam Telstra customers Why is it that if you ring Telstra about an issue almost within an hour one starts receiving sale calls and scam calls - who is selling the customer details to criminal syndicate - who benefits from offshoring? 

Telstra have cited "human error" for the reason a Mandurah pensioner was told to call a scam number after seeking help for internet issues. 
Loreen Kerrigan said her 69-year-old mother Melva Silins called her "distressed" on Monday after she was asked to hand over $680 to fix her internet issues. Human Error to be sure to be sure

“NO FAT CHICKS” IN THE RAP WORLD: Future Allegedly Told South Beach Club Not To Allow Fat Girls Inside.

No! Stop! Go back! Reading the abstract is like taking the red pill in the Matrix.

In this article we discuss “the game.” “The game” is the quest for measuring scholarship success using metrics such as law review ranking, citation counts, downloads, and other indicia of scholarship “quality.” We argue that this game is rigged, inherently biased against authors from lower ranked schools, women, minorities, and faculty who teach legal writing, clinical, and library courses. As such, playing “the game” in a Sisyphean effort to achieve external validation is a losing one for all but a few. Instead, we argue that faculty members should reject this entrenched and virulent hierarchy, and focus on the primary purposes of writing, which are to foster innovation in a fashion that is both pleasing to the author and that improves society. We discuss this rigged game, and seek to reframe our academic life to focus on enhancing innovation and discourse. We would start by skipping abstract writing.
TO BE FAIR, WHY WOULD THEY? “I was complaining about how socialist men don’t date socialist women and it really bothers me.” I mean, socialist women are tedious and unattractive, and it’s been at least 40 years since the sex was any good.
