Thieves Abscond With Over 1,800 Gallons of Vodka From LA Distillery

Thieves broke into the Fog Shots distillery warehouse in Los Angeles, California, on November 22 and made off with over 1,800 gallons worth of pre-packaged vodka shots, according to news reports. CCTV footage from a month earlier shows the thieves climbing over fences and moving security cameras, presumably in preparation to return and steal goods. In an interview with KTLA, company representative Art Gukasyan said that selling the product is futile because each bottle has a bar code, though the company worried that the thieves might try to sell to underage kids.

Protest Calling for Refugee Resettlement Forces Newcastle Border Force Office to Close

Police were called to a Borderforce Office in Newcastle, NSW, on Tuesday, October 31, when a group of students staged a protest against the treatment of refugees at Manus Island Refugee Processing Centre, which was due to close later that day. The Students Against Detention UoN group said they were holding the “peaceful occupation” to “stand in the way of inter-generational trauma” and the “abuse committed in our names” in the use of off-shore processing for asylum seekers and refugees. “We will not stop until there is justice for refugees,” the group said during the protest. “We stand with the men on Manus.” According to one of the protesters, the office was shut down due to their action and the police arrived to let “us know that they’re going to speak to the guys inside the office and that we are on private property and at some point they might give us move-on orders.” The Australian government had decided to withdraw financial support and housing for those refugees living the Manus Island Refugee Processing Centre, a move the United Nations said would leave them homeless and destitute, The Guardian reported.

Sydney Man Has Opal Travel Card Chip Implanted in Stomach-Churning Experiment

A Sydney man has had part of an Opal card implanted into his hand in an experiment to see if the technology made life more efficient. Meow-Ludo Meow-Meow live-streamed a question and answer session about the controversial move to Facebook on Tuesday, June 27. “One of the benefits of this is, instead of having the technology out of your body, you bring it into your body and that makes it much quicker to interact with technology,” Meow-Meow said in the video. “I think that privacy’s a bit of a joke, like it’s pretty much impossible to keep things private so why not take on the benefits of what this technology can offer you?” The former Science Party candidate for the federal electorate Grayndler advocated legislation that could both allow for implanted technology and also prevent it from becoming “mandatory”. “I think it would be good to have legislation that basically says that no company can ever force you to get one, no government can ever force you to get one, but maybe it’s an optional thing that you can sign on to to make your life easier.” The ABC reported that transport authorities were threatening to deactivate Meow-Meow’s account after hearing about the experiment.
