Re: Pesky telemarketing calls from India

just sign up to the do not call register... We used to get 3-4 a night, now we get maybe 1-2 a month.... The ones that actually get through to me are met with: ME: "do you know what the do not call register is" Them: either yes or no (dependant on how stupid they are) If yes: ME: well since you know...

[COM] Re: #PRO: New Royal Adelaide Hospital | $1.7b

A stadium on the old RAH site once the new RAH is built would not be practical. especially if it is to be a 100,000 ppl stadium. A stadium that size will require transport exchanges (bus/tram) as well as multiple entrances for car parking. You couldn't do it in that location. I would go for an exten...

Re: #Proposed : Port Adelaide Tram Line

There are far narrower streets in Melbourne that have trams running down them...I don't see the need to remove trees (and before anyone has a go..im not a NIMBY or greenie or whatever the term is) to accommodate the tram. Im sure a solution can be found. Most of the roads in Adelaide are very very w...

Re: Torrens Swamp...

Well said Clr Yarwood.. I am sure these are not the feelings or views of everyone on this site and to extrapolate further, this state. As an ex-Adelaidean i am proud of this city and can see the progress made in the last 6 years that i have been away. We are a small city in size and population and a...

Re: Development on Westend railyards

For example regarding the medical school, let me tell you a personal story. Last year during our cardiology block we had a lecture regarding heart murmurs. The lecturer mentioned that some murmer have a crescendo sound whereas others have a decrescendo sound. Like many people doing medicine, I am n...

Re: Torrens Swamp...

It's funny draining the "lake" has revealed the course of the original creek. It is not such a bad thing really, it is a good opportunity to give the whole place a cleanup, and undertake a replanting scheme. here here...and whilst they are doing that they may as well deepen it as well, install a fe...

Re: Thinking big

I say that we solve both of those problems by moving the airport. Great Idea, this should have been done before the new generation airport was done a few years ago, factoring a transport system to and from the newly relocated airport. However, you would find that the old airport, would not be rippe...

Re: Post your practical ideas to stay cool in a heatwave?

Re: The Great Roads Debate

There is neither a right way or a wrong way to approach this issue and "the great roads debate" cant and most probably never come to any formidable conclusion one way or another. This is because we all offer our views and opinions within the confines of our knowledge and that knowledge is usually gu...
