Indigenous Australians Aboriginal rock art in the Kimberley region of Western Australia Human habitation of the Australian continent is estimated to have begun around 65, to 70, years ago,   with the migration of people by land bridges and short sea-crossings from what is now Southeast Asia.

Margot Laughton Euthanasia In Australia you can end up in court for keeping an animal that is suffering pain and is beyond medical recovery but you can also go to jail for helping to end the life of a human being that is suffering the same pain. The Northern Territory introduced their famous euthanasia legislation in the s to allow terminally ill people to end their suffering but the Federal Government in Canberra used their powers to overturn any decision made by the Northern Territory as it is not a state and only has limited self-government and the laws were swiftly repealed.

Fuel truck must travel alone Ferry across the Daintree river On the Daintree river ferry in north Queensland the local council regulations say that trucks carrying fuel have to travel on the ferry alone, with no other vehicles or passengers, even if it is peak time and queues are built up on both sides of the river. This while the fuel truck sits in the normal queue before it reaches the ferry with people walking around the truck smoking cigarettes, but then on the ferry where smoking is not allowed the fuel truck has to travel alone!

An analysis of pollen and charcoal provides evidence of people using fire to clear land in the Lake George basin in the Southern Tablelands of NSW. Ancient camp sites and human remains dated to this time have been found in the area of Lake Mungo south-western NSW. Archaeological evidence identifying this date were found in two north Australian sites Nauwalabila and Malakunanja located about kms east of Darwin in the Northern Territory.
These are the earliest dated petroglyphs 35, years ago: Aborigines are thought to have reached Tasmania by this time. Archaeological evidence suggests Aboriginal people were living at the Keilor site 20 kms north-west of Melbourne in Victoria. The cave was occupied from this time until 6, BP. Archaeological evidence of bones found in sediment at the Willandra Lakes Region of far western NSW date back to this time.
The body of a woman from Lake Mungo provides the earliest evidence in the world of ritual cremation. The body is prepared with ochre before cremation. This is one of the earliest known burials of a distinctly modern people evidenced by signs of spiritual and creative life, including technology linked to much later Aboriginal culture. An ancient occupation site identified at Wentworth Falls.
Also, about this time, Aboriginal people living at Malangangarr in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, use ground-edge grooved axes. They are the first ancient people to do so.

Farago’s list of Bormann’s treasure above has been partially verified by Adam Lebor, as he specifically list the same quantities of gold and diamonds. This brief look at the Bormann treasure transferred to Argentina readily illustrates the difficulty of sorting fact from fiction in the tales of Nazi loot. Author, Uki Goni has also presented proof of the difficulties encountered in relying on Argentina records. He has found that those records have been purged of incriminating files on at least two different occasions.
Several U-Boats arrived in Argentine waters after the capitulation of Germany. They were the carriers of bundles of documents, industrial patents, and securities. The following month, on 17 August, the U also arrived at La Plata. In accordance with international conventions, both U-Boats were interned by Argentina and later handed over to the United States authorities.
Both U , and U from Gruppe Seewolf, had the range for the southernmost landings. No proper investigation of U and U , considering all the declassified material, has been made to this point. The entire history of the final voyages of these two submarines is based on the US Navy interrogation reports of the crews once they arrived as captives in the United States.
Now that they have been declassified we have a second story. The Argentines have chosen not to release the interrogations of the boats’ officers and crew but based on reports from Brazilian naval sources these are also believed to prove that neither voyage was what it seemed, the dates are faulty and we have been fed a pack of lies and deceit by the northern hemisphere to conceal the true purpose behind both voyages. And neither boat had Hitler, Eva Braun nor Bormann aboard.
