Social Media is good for something

I have often blogged a contrarian view of social media. Advocating social media is more about identity theft and piracy than social collaboration. I even argue against the business case for small businesses.

Costs Of Graffiti In Australia

Cost Of Graffiti, Graffiti Vandalism, grafiti, graffitti

Graffiti

In the early 1990’s Western Australian State Governments attempted to address graffiti proliferation using various methods and management models.  Despite this public concern continues to grow and so does the burden of state-wide graffiti removal costs.  A tougher approach, which focuses considerable effort on offender management and behaviour, has now been adopted. A State Graffiti Taskforce has been established to deal with the problem.

Graffiti removal costs have been estimated at up to $30 million dollars per year within Western Australia.  However, this figure is likely grossly underestimated due to the difficulty in obtaining an accurate cost largely to the nature of graffiti offences, its reporting and removal.

In 2005, the cost of criminal damage Australia wide, which included but was not limited to graffiti vandalism, was estimated to be $1.58 billion annually. This estimate is likely to be a conservative one given that graffiti vandalism, like other forms of criminal damage, is not always reported to police. It also gives no consideration to the social cost of graffiti vandalism; in particular the impact on perceptions of safety and public amenity.  It is evident throughout Western Australia regardless of the social, economic or cultural status of the community that its persistence, spread and visibility have served to heighten the public’s sensitivity to it as a threat against civic order and safety in their community

 

It is estimated that it costs Australians half a billion dollars a year to clean up graffiti. The police are fighting an ongoing battle and the Public Transport Authority has resources in place with 1200 cameras spread through the system at stations and platforms.

According to the government, graffiti costs the NSW economy and taxpayers more than $100 million a year.

Opera House Cake

As Australians we are proud of our landmarks – especially the Sydney Opera House.

Here is a time lapse to give an insight into the incredible week-long construction of the Opera House cake. Watch as the monolithic, chocolate-brown structure transforms into the alabaster iconic Opera House. Like little worker bees inside a hive, this glimpse inside the Planet Cake kitchen shows how hard Paris and the volunteers worked, every step of the way. I

t is incredible to see a weeks worth of work in a short snapshot like this. It is a privilege to get a behind the scenes look inside Australia’s Number One cake kitchen, Planet Cake.

Raw Data Is Valuable, In Fact It Can Save Lives!

How To Get MORE People To Your Blog

I’ve blogged about how to get MORE people to your blog… The best way is to SHOW you by getting YOU to get MORE people to my blog… Here’s another link you’re going to want to send to your close friends, family and colleagues.

Whether you are a Billy Joel fan or not, you probably remember his great song ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire.’

Here it is, set to pictures … It’s a fabulous flashback through the past half century. Turn up your volume, sit back and enjoy a review of 50 years of history in less than 3 minutes! Thanks to Billy Joel and some guy from the University of Chicago with too much time to Google!

I wonder how many of the images those under 40 will recognise from the early part of the song?? You might have to watch this more than once.

This was sent to me by Gavin Altus, Executive Manager Development at Engineering Education Australia. Thanks Gavin for sharing!
