I READ recently that so-called scientists now even believe that there exists a quantum zone where spacetime fluctuates precisely there where it is no longer determinate.
What will these boffins in their ivory towers come up with next?
Sometimes gravity really gets me down.

THERE’S so much going on in science around many topics.
Much of which we are led to believe we can actually do something about.
Last week my children and I visited the Naranwntapu National Park at Badger Head.
Lately we have had remarkable high tides and strong weather.
The beach at Badger Head has been completely washed away revealing a gem.
Under the sand lays a relic of ancient times when Tasmania was connected to mainland Australia.
There among the remaining sand and beach stone lays the earth and stumps of an ancient forest preserved by the sand and the sea.
It goes all the way out to the low tide line and beyond.
I was humbled and in awe to be fortunate enough to witness this phenomenon.
For sure, what I take from this experience gladly, is that things are in a constant state of change.
No matter what we think we might have control over or who has control over us, there is a much bigger story playing out.
One we know nothing about and will continue to play out regardless of us.

WEST Tamar Council is quick to rave about recent sporting upgrades at Riverside’s Windsor precinct, beneficiaries, cricket, Aussie rules and soccer.
But, it has in my view distinctly lacked foresight and planning over many decades for one of Australia’s highest participation sports - lawn bowls.
The defunct Riverside Club once leased a puny piece of land from the golf club next door.
The size was equivalent to one tennis court.
Now, there’s nothing between Trevallyn City Club, Exeter and Beauty Point Country Clubs.
Looking into my crystal ball, I’d love to see a synthetic green and eventually an indoor one.
Legana would be an ideal location.
In the meantime, I won’t be holding my breath even though local government elections are imminent.

ONE easy old trick to stop cold call scammers is to keep a loud whistle by the phone.
Upon suspicion that it is a scam blow it as loud as you can down the line.
These charlatans will quickly get fed up and stop calling.
I have found this a good way to deter these scams even when they reach pandemic levels.
And in discussing the problem with several experts this is a tactic they consider valid too.
