Alligator Wins Lottery and Jumps for Joy

This swampy critter is really happy. He went into town last week, bought a lottery ticket and won. No more searching for morsels in the muddy waters. Now he plans to move into the local hotel, live there and have food brought to him. Maybe he can have a go on the slot machines and win some more cash.

Netflix Arrives in Australia Next Year

They said it would never come to Australia, yet there are strong rumours that Netflix will come here next year. With our antiquated broadband system only city users will benefit.

The National Broad Network (NBN) is dead in the water with lukewarm support from the present backward looking government. Canberra is spending cut mad. Furthermore, the federal government has overwhelming belief in the free market, which history has already shown to be false. They are in an ivory tower even though their plans are doomed in the Senate.

Netflix is needed in Australia due to the monopoly of Rupert Murdoch's Foxtel network. It can dictate price at the moment. A major international player will shake them up.

The present broadband system is definitely not up to the task though.  Copper wire will not download high amounts of data at a fast speed.  Perhaps, Netflix could be moving in too quickly.  There will be frustation in the bush where users will not be able to access the new service.

Elephants Play Football

Not only humans enjoy a game of soccer. Elephants have a good time playing it too. Despite their size they are very fast and agile.

The fifth annual Chitwan festival in Nepal organized a soccer match for elephants in the region. Competition was rough with masters and elephants playing hard. The Wai Wai noodles team won the event. They dominated the final against the Hotel Association winning 3-0.

Riders sit on the backs of elephants while the animals really kick the ball around. An international elephant race has been included to bring more people (and elephants) to the festival.
