  James Nixon

Reflecting on the fact that it is over
a decade since Melbourne was judged
the most livable city in the world in the
Mercer's Annual Expat Livability Study.
Since then it has fallen markedly to 17th
Other studies have come along, each
proclaiming to be the best, but Mercer's
is the real deal. Meanwhile, throughout
the country the infrastructure
is crumbling and levels of service
are declining. Prices, as you'd expect,
continue to rise. In 2014 it was rated as the
5th most expensive city in the world.

The following are stories that appeared
on an interesting experiment, an
internet
radio-on-demand station, iRadioMAX,
which operated in 2007 and 2008.
It was way ahead of its time. Narrow-casting
radio is now PODCASTING and is set to equal,
and possibly replace, live radio as we know it.
Its founder,
Max Walker, sadly passed away
from skin cancer.
Read the scripts and listen to the
shows on the links below
:

  Story 1.  DUBAI:  Centre Of The World
Squeezing up between the sand
and the sea...

  Story 2.  THE U.K.  End Of The Empire
BBC Radio 4 killed it's Opening Theme
and the Empire

  Story 3.   Looking  Out  The  Window
Flying, global warming, bushfires
and the human spirit

  Story 4.  BA 777 Crash Initial Reaction
24 hours after a double-engine failure,
why are 777s still flying?
