# Converting square kilometres to square miles, mathematics for maralinga radioactivity

Featured

When one is old skool and was brought up in the transitory period of australia moving from the imperial system to the metric system, we people born in the 1970’s had to learn both systems and was told we would thus be even smarter for knowing both measurement systems.

1.6 kilometres = 1 mile.

1 inch = 2.54 cm.

3 feet is a bit less than 1 metre, 1 pound made three aussie dollars fiscally, or 1 kilogram made 2.2 pounds weight wise.

When the british and the australian collaborated in the 7 nuclear tests, i.e. radioactive explosions in various locations around our Great One Nation, they did some damage to an area, or rather a volume of Outback Country.

Yadda yadda yar, eventually they got around to cleaning up the messes that killed many of my fellow human cousins, and the magnificent outback plants and creatures existing there.

Maralinga Rehabilitation Project (archive.org)

At that linky above u will discover that AFTER cleaning up the maralinga area the following…

“The Project surpassed the standards set at its inception. Most of the former Maralinga test site (approximately 3,200 square kilometres) is now safe for unrestricted access. As a precautionary measure, approximately 120 square kilometres, enclosed within an area of 412 square kilometres delineated by marker posts, is considered safe for access but not for permanent occupancy.”

So get ur smart phone out and note that 120 square kilometres is NOT safe for permanent occupancy, then apply that to our Adelaide concept of the square mile of Adelaide, and do your conversion.

We end up with 46.3323 Adelaides are not considered safe for permanent occupancy AFTER the clean up surpassed the standards set at the beginning of the 4 year clean up project.

I shall rephrase for clarity. 46 areas the size of Adelaide was utterly fucking made unlivable and radioactive desolation, but you can still hang around that area for a short time fairly safely if you high tail it out quickly before the radioactivity shortens ones lifespan.

Just think, feel and consider,>>> how would you feel if 46 square miles around greater adelaide was actually genuinely poisonous to permanently live upon?

And apparently that’s good enough to surpass expectations of the Australian Government, the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency.

I wonder, do those fine institutions exist in the square mile? or nearby?

I put it to the australian humans, birds, beasts and insects, do you want radioactive soil in your residence?

Go check out Osborn with a geiger counter, or your local hospital. Do some physics and mathematics, some engineering. Do we want nuclear submarines in south australia?

“Rats and Tims measured how the fissile core of a nuclear weapon was compressed by the high explosive shock wave; and Vixens investigated the effects of fire or non-nuclear explosions on atomic weapons. The minor trials, numbering around 550, ultimately generated far more contamination than the major tests.”

China and America sitting in a tree, k i double s, i n g. First comes naval exchange, then comes planes, then comes the nukes and the little ones run away. It’s a first draft, but hey, time is ticking, I got stuff to do at two, perhaps a poo in the loo.

# Poetry of the Day, david jarvis

relaxed and poised, serve with one foot in the box,

an easy swing, something that goes in,

touching the side wall to make the volley

a little tougher to play a ramy roller.

Our swing facilitates us moving back to the T,

as we hunt for our own volley.

Either like Nick Wolf hunting at the T proper,

or with a little more time,

deep T position for those a little slower.

Reasonable quality keeps the ball in,

avoid, avoid avoid the tin,

just up a bit, nice and safely,

fair quality till the opening presents, then bam!

Winner winner, chicken dinner.

Hard and fast, striking with perfection, pressure raised.

Sportsman ship comes first,

peace and gentleness to all our opponents

we are cooperatively competing,

accepting every ref’s call,

hearing the score, but caring about it not.

Magicians with rackets in hand,

we serve in Camelot.

8th June 2024, the Black Diamond Event in Darwin Squash Centre.

Roll up roll up, play the ball up, up.

three girls, give it a twirl,

we remember june 21 2011,

when we stood together,

to watch a couple become wife and husband.

I thank you both for your continued engagement with my wife,

she keeps me out of strife,

and blesses me with her loving life.

You should see her now,

a queen fit to wear a golden crown,

her vigor is without compare,

she walks the talk on friday mornings,

just after the sun dawns.

Laratinga in peramangk country is her domain,

pure royalty unrestrained.

David Jarvis 18 December 2021.

In highest Honour, inspired by a fellow artist, but all my own creativity.

short story long ending,
i been chased here after running for so long,

i got no where else to go.

So i’ve come home to a place where i hold the throne.

i didn’t wanna be a-lone, but they chased me hard.
they blew all my homes a-waaaay,

they came and took me awaaaay, that very day.

i was hurt so-ooo bad, the kind of hurt

still hurts righ-t nooow wow.

right nooow, ow.
in the depths of despair,

in the daylight stood there, my love, Clare.
she was sent to me by a friend,

who dearly knew loves needs,
to mend broken hearts. to put peo-ple together,

a little bit bet-ter.

make those that survive learn how to thrive,

by cutting their threads to repair the damages

done by those lacking good carers.

we all got this right, to life, to life with out strife,

we got a right to loving partners without all the dramas,

we gotta live in peace and harmony,

all ways relating from all the views,

because we all just want a

home with a view.

David Jarvis 2021.

# Squash Lob solo practice

Featured

This is quite a long vlog of solo training for lob shot incremental improvement, a little waffle on perceived copyright issues in the new world order that is shaping up with user content creation. Scotland armed services drop in for a few messages, whilst garfield watches onwards, wishing for yet more home made lasagna. Sir Danny Mango, of Klinger fame from a mobile army surgical hospital is mentioned as we utilise artillery theory to target the strike zone of the scottish hat used as a target for the lobbed bombs dropped ineptly. Many many poor lobs, and only a few decent ones, but hey, that’s life. c’est la vie. david jarvis, sporting reporting, squash delivery in the adelaide hills by peaceful purposeful communications.
