At the risk of sounding like an old codger, I actually got a bit dewy-eyed watching that.  So refreshing to see people outside enjoying life's simple pleasures with not a mobile phone in sight.

Also, did anyone else think the kid on the jetty with a fishing rod looked a bit like a young Matt Simon?

You may like this its from 1980 & it's a gentle folk song from I guess the 1920's . The song is about the fun you have going to the beach and then coming home... not to serious but hhhmmmm nice and reflective of a time lot sense passed almost a social history lesson in a song.

Hope you like it ... BTW agree that newsreel did show the simple pleasures of life and being outdoors...

Hope you enjoy mate..

No. Google are lying because they're in a fight with other large media companies about having to share revenue for content they're putting on their sites.

We have created a very questioning society.... and many people today join a group ... say left / right... thankfully there are more swingers today ... but many on the left and right   today are almost in a cult ... in that their side can do no wrong and the other no right..

Sometimes and its rare the left and right in Australia agree ... and one issue they broadly agree on is the growing influence of tech companies and the loss of journalist in particular in traditional media companies...

That google, facebook and others profit from people linking articles is of no doubt, that neither paid a cent for the content is not questioned, that they take no responsibility for whats published is also not in question...

The Australian government both sides agree that there should be some way the source of something thats earns a tech company money should share in that money seems to me anyway correct... especially if it keeps journalist employed...

That the tech companies oppose this so much is because the world is watching this .... many countries will follow suit ...

This IMO is one of those left / right,  issues were both sides have maybe for different reasons the same desired outcome.... 

I hope the government hold their nerve, and the opposition don't try and make politics out of it...

I have never been a party person, my first time voting was December 75, and I voted on a single issue and that was to end conscription... 

Since then I have only lost two federal elections where the side I voted for lost, the first election Fraser won, and last election the climate polices of the Libs was / is insane at federal level...  at state level have always voted for the party that won...

I have friends on both the left and the right, and they seem to be hhhhhmmmmmm almost blind to there sides wrongs an example is Trump supporters who cheer him locking up parents and kids in cages and then separating them... beyond that if there side puts out a policy it gets support .... within both parties there are groups so in the Libs most support Climate Change but are too scared to stand up at least at Federal level to those that oppose it... this is partly driven by the almost cult like left & right folk... I have had conversations with hard line right folk who are in total denial of the science, costing, engineering break thoughts of renewable technologies .... yet will insist that carbon capture is an affordable and working technology ... so effectively  only using science when  that supports your view... [BTW carbon capture is many years away if ever and the costs is huge] ... 

But thats the way things work today for many ... 

As an aside in the US today over 30% of the population have said they don't believe in science and science experts... and its growing... climate deniers, anti vaccine folk, flat earth folk.... the moon landing and SpaceX  flights are fake....

Been a big fan of this guy and his channel. He basically hunts down scammers and reports them until their business is ceased.
