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

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.

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.

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

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.

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??

Yeah autism is a regular occurrence on our roads daily

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

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.

ROK was great in that Granny, same LRT. I thought Nic Fosdike played out of his skin in 05, but there was soooo much Judd love no one else was ever a look in.

Should've been lrt both times

Already given the 2018 Coleman to Buddy?

Josh Kennedy was robbed in 2016 Gf but it usually goes to the winning team.2012 was Ryan o'keefe

Should have been Hanners

ROK but the real winner dan hannerbrey for me the mark in the 1st when they were coming at us hard an in the last kicked a gold when one was really needed an did the hard work to get the baĺl to nick mel to kick the winning goal

should have been hanners!

Ryan O’Keefe of course and well deserved. Should never have let him go.

A question is wrong. Buddy hasn’t won the 2018 Coleman yet

interesting that you have 2018 coleman when the season hasnt started ?

Ryan O'Keefe the only swans player to win one.

The bloke you let play in the seconds for retirement?

Ryan O'Keefe. Oh what a moment, Oh what a year!

He’s a candidate for the Australian of the Year, they just want to hand him his invitation in person.

Seems like a decent bloke

His innovative ideas on interior design are needed for a new station being built.

This should work

Wonder if it's about his views on Australia day?

City of Sydney

More than 60 handmade bronze birds are now dotted down Bridge and Grosvenor Street in the city’s north as Tracey Emin’s 'The Distance of Your Heart' is officially launched.

Perching on poles, archways, statues and doorways, find your favourite and share them with us on #cityartsyd

Learn more about the artwork:

This could be made into a tourist map for kids, so they can find all 60 birds, like a treasure hunt!

Instead of spending a million dollars on this rubbish could you please address the core responsibilities of local government. I’ve reported the constant dumping of rubbish on Ashmore St in Erskineville by email and by phone and the problem remains....I’ve even been told by one of your staff ‘Well if it doesn’t fit in the bin the drivers will just leave it there so you have to pick it up yourself or speak to your neighbours’ Quite unbelievable.

How much did this cost and was the cost covered by philanthropic groups or City of Sydney ratepayers?

Clover wastes more money on shit can this thing be stopped????

Trucks of Maddox Street. I reckon the cost of 10 birds would have fixed our Maddox St problem. Lord Mayor Clover Moore clearly doesn’t think we have enough pigeons in the city. Excellent allocation of resources!

Dacia George Shirleen Corina will have to check it out

Extremely underwhelming, and quite irrelevant. Anything wrong with doing something “creative’ and giving the $912k to an Australian artist?

I don’t know how many people would noticed these things. I think the real birds would be more noticeable than these.

What a waste of money feed the homeless

Love them. Nice idea🦉

Dont we have enough of real birds

Can't wait to go and try to find them all!

Absolutely beautiful


It’s a genuine question City of Sydney?

Erin Boyd let’s go find them


Are the birds gay? ..because Clover sits on floats to get the gay vote. The residents in Alexandria should know by now that Clover has always put birds and trees before ratepayers.
