Adelaide weather: Fierce winds lash South Australia, felling trees ... - The Advertiser

FIERCE winds tore branches down and felled powerlines, causing power outages across Adelaide, as a cold front moved across the state overnight.

Cape Willoughby and Hindmarsh Island recorded average wind speeds of 50 to 65 km/h and gusts to 90 to 95 km/h overnight.

In Adelaide, powerlines were brought down in Sir Donald Bradman Drive near Ikea, prompting traffic diversions. There were also blackouts in Brooklyn Park, Flinders Park and Lockleys.

Power also was lost in several north-east suburbs including Angle Park and Mansfield Park.

Meanwhile in the north-eastern suburb of Newton, a Stobie pole fell over and brought down about 100m of powerlines in Graves St this morning. However it is not clear if the incident was weather related.

Jodie van Deventer: South Australia needs policies to turbo charge ... - The Advertiser

WHAT works for the eastern states doesn’t always work for South Australia and that appears to be the case with the Federal Government’s decision to make it harder for skilled migrants to come to Australia.

While Sydney and Melbourne are bursting at the seams causing major infrastructure headaches, South Australia’s population has gone backwards in some regional areas and is growing at a glacial pace elsewhere.

We need more people, not fewer, so anything which makes it harder for businesses to attract the people they need to grow to generate much needed economic activity is a major concern.

When businesses have tried and failed to source local employees, they have no choice but to turn to the skilled migration system.

Our city and regional populations are ageing and fewer people are living in our country towns so we need a sensible migration program not just to plug the gaps but...

South Australia reaches record wind output of 1,540MW : Renew ... - RenewEconomy

Print Friendly

South Australia set a new record for wind output on Tuesday, the Anzac Day public holiday, reaching 1,540MW just before midnight – a significant lift on its previous record of 1,400MW set just two weeks earlier.

This graph below – from NEM-Watch – illustrates the huge surge in wind output on Anzac Day, which followed several instances over the previous few days when output was minimal at some points. At its peak, the wind output equated to 96.6 per cent of its registered capacity.

The Australian Energy Market Operator says it was forced to intervene to ensure that at least two gas-fired generators remained on line – and it imposed controlled pricing over the period to ensure that occurred.

South Australia gets its first CISO - Security - iTnews - iTnews

South Australia has hired its first-ever chief information security officer, appointing public sector cyber security veteran David Goodman to the role.

The state government advertised the newly-created position earlier this year in an effort to centralise leadership of South Australia's cyber security and risk assurance activities and give citizens more confidence in the government's digital services.

Goodman has left his role as acting director of cyber security and risk within the Department of Premier and Cabinet to become the statewide CISO.

He spent a year heading up cyber security and risk at the agency, and prior to that around nine years in IT security within the state's health service.

Goodman stays within DPC for the CISO role, and will report into the director of the Office for Customer, ICT and Digital Transformation inside the department.

Part of his remit will be to...

South Australia tightens green snail control measures for Western Australian produce - ABC Online

Fruit and vegetable growers in Western Australia are frustrated by the South Australian Government changing green snail control measures for produce that is imported from Western Australia.

As at the start of April, Biosecurity SA has now designated the entirety of WA a risk zone for green snail.

Previously, South Australia only had green snail control conditions for host products grown within 0–2km of a green snail infestation, or within 2km and 25 km.

The 25km radius has now been lifted, which means growers of green snail host produce located anywhere in Western Australia will have to have routine inspections of their property, as well as bait the perimeter, if they want to export produce into South Australia.

This is understood to affect growers of leafy vegetables, peas, beans, asparagus, strawberries, flowers, turf hay, straw and other baled fodder grown outside the metropolitan...

Regulator blames AEMO errors for South Australia blackout - RenewEconomy

Print Friendly

Accurate weather forecasting by the Australian Energy Market Operator could have circumvented the need for rolling blackouts in South Australia in February, an event that left tens of thousands of people without power during a searing heatwave and caused the South Australia government to seize powers to intervene in the market.

The rolling blackouts on February 8 caused a political storm and yet more accusations about the risks of too much renewable energy in a local grid. But in the first independent report on AEMO’s actions over the past summer, the Australian Energy Regulator has laid the blame squarely at the market operator.

As we reported here, this is much the same conclusion AEMO, itself, came to in its own report on the February 8 blackouts, which revealed that the network operator had relied on private weather forecasters, but had not been updating its forecasts during the...

Tetanus scare for SA toddler - The Advertiser

A 22-MONTH-OLD toddler is in a stable condition in hospital following the first confirmed case of tetanus in a South Australian child in 17 years.

It is only the third case of tetanus in any age group in SA in a decade.

Health officials are urging parents to ensure their children are fully vaccinated against tetanus and other diseases.

SA Health’s Chief Medical Officer Professor Paddy Phillips encouraged parents to have their children immunised, saying the risk of getting a preventable disease far outweigh the risks from a vaccine.

“Sadly, we have been notified of the first tetanus case in South Australia since 2013

and the first case we have seen in a child since 2000,” Prof Phillips said.

“Tetanus is an uncommon but very serious disease that can be fatal, particularly in infants and the elderly, but there is an effective vaccine that is part of the National Immunisation...

Time now to bring wooden boats to Port Adelaide? - The Advertiser

THE City of Adelaide Clipper Ship could be the star attraction of a wooden boat rally in Port Adelaide, Mayor Gary Johanson says.

Off the back of the historic ship finding a permanent home, Mr Johanson has renewed his push to bring Goolwa’s wooden boat festival to Port Adelaide after his attempt to do so in 2015 failed.

He said without support from the State Government the idea had flopped but he now believed the time was right given the government’s considerable investment in rejuvenating Port Adelaide.

Mr Johanson said he also lacked the financial backing of and assistance from the council two years ago.

The renewed proposal would see the popular festival held on alternate years to the established Goolwa event which attracts more than 50,000 people and adds millions to the local economy.

“This (the wooden boat festival) is something I know so many people have been keen to see for...

Melbourne's Queen of Cakes heading to Adelaide - The Advertiser

Nat Paull, Melbourne’s Cake Queen, is cooking in Adelaide for Tasting Australia this week

MAGGIE Beer protege Nat Paull, known affectionately as Melbourne’s Queen of Cakes, is a guest chef at Tasting Australia here in Adelaide.

FOOD MEMORIES Cooking with Mum was “helping” with cakes, but more just eating the batter, and, with Dad, it was the special annual Christmas-cake baking day. But my first solo cooking adventure was at seven, making a buttercake from a pictorial step-by-step recipe, and the butter and sugar had to be creamed by hand with a wooden spoon. My young muscles couldn’t get any air into it, so the cake was horrid, flat and tough, with bright blue icing and lolly bananas on top. Mum and her friends were kind, though. As a teenager, I bought Vogue Entertaining instead of Smash Hits magazine. I thought Neil Perry was as spunky as Johnny Depp. I have so many great food...

SA's entrepreneurial sparks - The Advertiser

The former St Paul’s Anglican Church on the corner of Pulteney and Flinders streets, one of Adelaide’s busiest intersections, has had many purposes in its 157-year history.

In the 19th Century, the heritage-listed building counted among its congregation wealthy and powerful families, including the Ayers and Bonythons whose influence, contribution and notoriety are etched in the names of buildings, streets and parks across the city.

The church closed in 1983 and for about 30 years served as a function centre and later a nightclub before it was again shuttered nearly a decade ago.

Today, the building is called St Paul’s Creative Centre and is humming with start-up companies and entrepreneurs who are filling co-working spaces under the lofty church rafters, thanks to State Government backing.

It’s this tech renaissance which businesses and government hope will drive South Australia...
