Call the bank if it takes your money but keep shut if it gives you extra

Contact the bank derp. Takes about a month to get it back though. Had it happen once at an ATM, which was not good because I was poor at the time. But it is rare.

New research here in Perth shows a direct link between sun exposure and autism.


Comment on Facebook

thats the most ridiculous thing ever posted in the history of earth

Decrease in learning and memory? Try again My asd son is bored with the English alphabet he's moved on himself to Ukraine since he was two, he is now four. Trust me , learning and memory struggles are definitely not a problem in autism

I love how people are quick to dispute this yet still believe that vaccinations can cause it 😂🤦🏼‍♀️

I was talking with someone today about austism and how it's literally no more than an 'umbrella definition' for a few hundred different behavioural tendancies science hasn't yet been able to categorise. But nope, you managed to combine it all into one simple definition. Great work on that.

PLEASE HELP!!does anyone know what kind of behaviour defines rat autism? Asking for a friend.....

I think the ingredient Nagalase in vaccine's have something to do with the body not absorbing Vit D, so they are on to something but its not the sun lol

Or my so what about children in other parts of the world who have autism and where they have very little sun every now and then and all it does is rain or cloudy and lucky to have a full week of sun. This has to be the worse researched ever.

Lmfao!!! You got to be joking... the sun is the best thing for us. Vaccines, chemtrails, GMO's... maybe we should look there.

I don't think so. My sister lives at the beach and goes down every single day, specially when she was pregnant and she has a severely autistic child. She is healthy and pretty much covered doing the right thing, nevertheless it happen... I think it's a just simply a different brain formation and it's probably carried by a gene or a mutated gene.

So how does this work with people who have twins and only one child was diagnosed autistic? Maybe she didn’t lay long enough in the sun on that side 🙈🤣

Sam Roland Arvind Jarryd this must explain my 'autismal outbursts and screeching' as you guys would put it. Mystery solved Theory of everything

This is the stupidest thing in my feed today. I was conceived, carried and birthed under the grey skies of the UK. Explain my autism, you total numpties!

Oh no! People don’t need more excuses as to why kids have autism! Next will be low Vit D and albinism will be linked to Autism.

Sarah Taylor not sure i buy into this. You were in north west australia when you were expecting me. There is lots of sun there.

Yeah autism is a regular occurrence on our roads daily

Vaccines and sun exposure, that is truly the most crazy comment. How come my children and grand child, and myself have had vaccines and exposure to sun, they don't have autism, I feel it must be because of something else, I just wish they would find out the truth instead of making up crazy assumptions.

The Sun story is rubbish. Autism from vaccines is rubbish. Autism is a world wide problem, and some of those come from countries that do not have vaccines, so h ow do they explain that.

People are quick to dismiss this, but there are many many studies with a strong indication towards vitamin D being essential for brain development on a cellular level, in a foetus. Why couldn’t a lack of vitamin D cause developmental issues down the line??

You have got to be kidding me....I use to think you guys were really doing something positive...It has been researched over and over again and it has been shown it is genetic. I am sorry I did not know that rodents could be autistic....I cannot believe so much money has been spent on this. It is embarrassing.

🤔 I think a lack of sun does give me mood swings...😵

I never saw much sunlight......☹ I battled morning sickness that lasted the hole pregnancy and depression......and now I have an an autistic son Ronin...maybe there is something to learn from this research. Cahles Lewis

More likely than not they're probably just caught onto the parents reclusive habits and became a hermit. Nothing to do with Autism, more to do with introversion.

I guess the next step would ne to survey human mothers of autistic kids about thier sun exposure during pregnancy.

Simon Castellas better leave Jaxon outside daily. Might control his outbursts 🙄

Would not call it a direct link , untill they have scientific evidence shows it applys to humans. As the researcher said her self. Dr Wyroll said although the study was conducted on rats, the data indicated Vitamin D levels during pregnancy were important for brain development and may be a contributing factor in the development of neurodevelopmental conditions such as ASD. “However further work is needed to establish whether these associations apply to humans,” she said.

Myer has reported a net half-yearly loss of nearly half-a-billion dollars.



Comment on Facebook

Myer has a large “high end product” placement. They are spending too much on these brands, they’re too expensive, people aren’t buying them. They probably should do away with alot of the departments and focus on, clothing, homewares, footwear, beauty and accessories.

It's becoming a lot like David Jones.... I reckon the prices need to go down. Otherwise, I'm backing down

Maybe adjust your prices to be more competitive. Meyers is famous for inflating their product pricing.

They have closed too many shops and lost customer base as a result.

When all the shops are gone everyone will be happy. We are outsmarting ourselves here in Australia when your kids finish school uni etc and can’t get work how good will you feel then, I suppose your blame the government! We should support local businesses..

The prices aren't anywhere near being competitive even compared with other bricks and mortar retailers

Uniqlo Zara are taking over about time

Keep going people buy online and put australians out of work 😠

Not surprised!

They have to go online and we lose jobs
