Hunt: Pure Australian killings

Hunting is a weird entertainment. It seems to be cruel, but on the other hand it’s a natural male occupation, the most vital justification. Someone today is hunting for bread, or rather, daily meat. But for most, hunting is a hobby, a source of energy and inspiration. A difficult occupation, sometimes requiring courage – but all the more exciting, the greater the danger for the hunter.

In this sense, Australia is ideal for hunting. They hunt in every way: in jeeps and on foot, at night, making their way through the bush in search of crocodiles who are ready at any moment to pounce on the hunter … The beauty of Australia is that there is a choice that around there is a diverse nature, beaches nearby, and right there – super-civilization, amenities, even luxury.

Australia toughens laws for students

In December, the Australian government tightened legislation regulating the rights of international students in the country. Previously, a person enrolled in an Australian educational institution received a student visa, which allowed him to get a job immediately upon arrival (students are allowed to work up to 20 hours a week during school hours and full-time during the holidays). From now on, a student visa does not mean an automatic right to work. The student must first establish himself well at the place of study and residence – and only then submit an application for work permit to the appropriate authorities. Continue reading

Automatic instead of the border guard

According to the forecasts of Australian statisticians, in the summer of 2000, during the Olympic Games in Sydney, the flow of foreign tourists to Australia will increase approximately threefold. Moreover, all this mass of people will fly and sail into the country almost simultaneously. Which can lead to queues at passport and customs control at international airports and seaports. In search of a solution to this problem, Australian experts have developed a fundamentally new passport verification system.

A technical novelty is a joint brainchild of employees of the Organization of scientific and industrial research of the Australian community and CPS. The system works as follows. The passport is placed in a special electronic scanner. At the same time, a digital camera photographs the person undergoing passport control. The computer instantly compares two images, establishing their identity. Continue reading

Fifth continent

In no one of the prosperous countries of the world can you find such a combination of prosperity with untouched nature and limitless open spaces …

Today, Aeroflot refused to fly to Australia, citing economic reasons. However, the KLM Boeing 747 crammed full of passengers (including from Russia) suggests that the “economic reasons” for canceling flights are associated only with inept management at our airline.

The Amsterdam – Sydney route is the longest for KLM and the execution of it is entrusted to the best crews. We landed at Sydney International Airport in the afternoon and two hours later I flew on, to Adelaide, on the Boeing of the local ANSET airline. Continue reading
