Resistance Radio – Deborah Tabart – 09.28.16

Deborah Tabart OAM, CEO of the Australian Koala Foundation, is fondly known as the Koala Woman. She has been at her post since February 1988. At that time she was told to raise $5m and “save the Koala.” Since then, Deborah has focussed her attention on mapping Koala habitat. If you cannot save a habitat, you will never save any species. The AKF takes no Government funding and has, over the years spoken more and more confidently about the plight of the Koala.

9 Outrageous Ways the Rich Spend Their Money the Rest Of Us Could Only Dream About By Kali Holloway

“Rich People—They’re Just Like Us!” tabloid magazines assure us, and that’s true, at the mitochondrial level. Otherwise, F. Scott Fitzgerald [3] got it right the first time: Rich people are not like the rest of us, and they’ve put a lot of stopgaps in place to make sure it stays that way. I don’t even mean the way they own 43 percent [4] of the country’s …
