Why Mum's are turning to the 'side hustle'! [Michelle Worthington - Acclaimed Author] :: 4 June, 2021


 

"Buffalo Soldier" - written by Bob Marley and Noel "King Sporty" Williams, and recorded by Bob Marley and the Wailers - did not appear on record until the 1983 posthumous release of Confrontation, when it became one of Marley's best-known songs.

The title and lyrics refer to the black U.S. cavalry regiments, known as "Buffalo Soldiers", that fought in the Indian Wars after 1866. Marley linked their fight to a fight for survival, and recasts it as a symbol of black resistance. The song's bridge, with the lyrics woe! yoe! yo!, was rumoured to be inspired by the chorus from the Banana Splits' "The Tra-La-La Song", the 1968 theme from their TV show.

There has been no proof of this, and a story by the BBC in 2008 seems to cast doubts on this origin story.

"...just a Buffalo Soldier, in the heart of America."


 

Huge 30 million robot dolphins could replace captive animals in sea life parks

The 2.5-metre creations are clad in medical-grade silicone and can swim underwater and behave just like their real-life counterparts, even performing tricks for crowds.

The brainchild of an animatronic company which has made creatures for Hollywood blockbusters such as Free Willy, Deep Blue Sea, Avatar, Flipper and Anaconda it is hoped one day the innovation can help free the 3,000 ultra-intelligent mammals living in the multi-billion-pound captivity industry.

Welfare organisation PETA posted pictures of incredibly realistic robot Delle swimming alongside children at the John C. Argue Swim Stadium in LA and has confirmed the technology could allow humans to experience and learn about dolphins without confiding them to concrete tanks.

Previously test audiences have been unable to tell the animatronic dolphins were not real.

Animatronics could also help bring back audiences turned off by aquatic parks using live animals and turn the industry around.

You can never have too many occasions to eat cheese, but this Melbourne cheese festival isn't just keen to shower cheese fiends with creamy goodness. A collaboration between Bruny Island Cheese Co. cheesemaker Nick Haddow and the organisers of Pinot Palooza, Mould wants dairy lovers to explore and devour the mild, hard and soft bites that Australia's best cheese wizards have to offer.

Heading to a new location for 2021, the festival will paint the Abbotsford Convent yellow on Friday, June 25 and Saturday, June 26. Alongside unlimited tastings of Australia's best cheeses — with the lineup still be to announced — it'll feature flavoursome fare from other food vendors. Think of it as a cheese tasting trip around Australia without leaving St Heliers Street.

Of course, snacking on samples and purchasing slices and slabs to take home with you are just two ways to enjoy cheese. The fest will have cooking demonstrations, masterclasses and talks so you can stretch your cheese knowledge as well as your cheese stomach.
