    HI, Yes, I am located in France. For the moment I can sold only M officinarum. I can still send them bare root to UK. 30€ for a plant of 5-6 years old 45€ for a plant of 6-9 years old (see some example on picture): I can also sell the "Womandrake" It is a very rare specimen with 2 perfect legs (for 250€) (+ shipment: 15€/plant, 20€ for 2 plants) Best regards Yves

    Digital Identity Bill?

    Looks like you need to already have a digital identity before you can make a submission / complete the survey. If you go back to debates surrounding the introduction of the Medicare card, you'll see the controversy involved (then) in making Australian identities (i.e. personal information) more centralised. The Medicare card was a concession to citizens' legitimate concerns about privacy and government control. I reluctantly joined MyGov in order to try (unsuccessfully) to get Covid income support. The irony with all of that is, now that Centrelink ATO etc. have all of the information they require -- they still insist that you provide it again and again, into the future. Efficiency is clearly not what this system is all about. I don't have a MyHealth record, for the reason that I'm 100% confident that the government cares not one iota for my health (centralised medical records would be a good idea in principle, but for the meddling hands of business, government, etc..). More power to the medical authorities, who keep records of your mental and sexual health for example, but less power to the actual patient in need of help. The issue is the extent to which people are prepared to trust in authority. Some people crave it, evidently.

    Diplopterys

    Yeah @Flux I understand how “rare” it is. I feel like cabrerana doesn’t even exist. The species I’m after I think is D.lutea?? Should be able to get some to Aus easy enough just didn’t want to go through the bother if someone already had.

    Digital Identity Bill?

    I tried to have a look at what's it about but am confused by what's the problem? I already have the Medicare and Centrelink apps on my phone, I've had to provide copies of my driver's licence/passport/birth certificate for all sorts of things from applications to study or police clearances (I think?) etc etc. I don't use that thing where you share your doctor's info and stuff but I'm on the NDIS and in the public health psychiatric system so they know all that stuff already. Is it really anymore than just all that stuff combined into one thing? If the government wanted to track my movements I'm sure they could just use my phone and bank transactions and stuff right (although to be fair they would be wasting their time because my life is pretty unexciting on a good day). So I get that I'm extremely apathetic about securing my private data, whereas others are the polar opposite, which in hindsight is probably the way to go. But I'm still confused as to the issue? Do people opposed to it not have a phone, email, tax file number, driver's licence and so on? I think I must be completely missing the point of it right? I fully admit this isn't something I'm clued up on at all. So am I just too apathetic? Or just have no clue as to what it's all about?

    Digital Identity Bill?

    Some form of digital ID/passport is inevitable IMO, I remember many years ago proposing and discussing such a thing at uni and how it could/would work, my guess is that the aus or any gov that tries to set them up will fail slowly and never really be adopted as commonplace as they will try use it for the own purposes and just do it poorly, and eventually a company like google or apple will set up a global equivalent that will just somehow be adopted and accepted as a standard. Basically just a "log in with google?" but where you and your log in has been certified as an actual unique person and this just expands to take the place of all similar things as it becomes more and more accepted.

    covid 19 vaccination

    Hi zedo. You're wasting your energy trying to use an FOI to find freely available information as an open access article online mate. Here's the link to the actual article for you - https://www.mja.com.au/journal/2020/212/10/isolation-and-rapid-sharing-2019-novel-coronavirus-sars-cov-2-first-patient I don't have a clue if MJA is considered credible in your circles but it is for most medical researchers. For anyone interested, the way to critique what any 'scientific' media article says is 1) read their media article 2) check the media article has a citation of some form, if not ignore the media article 3) if so, track down the journal article via the citation 4) check the journal article does actually make similar conclusions to the media article, if not ignore everything and ignore the following steps unless you're interested in why the media is wrong 5) read the journal article critically asking yourself 'do their claims match the evidence', 'why are they saying that' etc etc., then if you want to be 110% thorough, skim through the reference list and check they aren't all from predatory or poor quality journals (usually preprints would be included in this list but with the unprecedented rapid production of covid papers you could let them slide, but really you should add another step and at the least read their abstract and results) 6) reach an evidence based conclusion.....and voila, your now thinking critically and addressing the scientific literature in the way it was meant to be addressed, regardless of your initial beliefs or biases. Oh and for further food for thought, check this diagram out. A lot of people on both sides of the debate like to use the 'cognitive dissonance' bias to counter others (not saying I've seen you use it zedo) but there's a lot of other biases to consider when undertaking critical thinking activities too.

    Interesting how a FOI request says it’s never been isolated, even as of august this year. And there has been court cases is numerous countries to prove this.

    How is taking information from professionals in the industry an issue? These people are not just randoms. Especially the rome accord and world doctors alliance ... or American frontline doctors. im not interested in you tubers but rather people who are literally the people who do the science and do actual investigative reporting.

    Cacao dosage

    Cacao goes well with so many wonderful herbal edibles, it seems to have synergistic effects. I've never experienced any ill effects from cacao. Unlike coffee. Cadmium contamination isn't specific to chocolate products -- apparently it's even worse in grains and cereals. But it's something to be aware of, even in "organic" cacao. The cadmium levels vary by soil condition where the cacao is grown -- higher in Central America than in Africa (or is it the other way around?). There was some legal action a few years back concerning heavy metals in chocolate products, but I don't think it was successful.

    Cacao dosage

    I eat a shitload of it in my muesli, or along with coconut chocolate desert. 6-8 tablespoons per day when I have it in muesli, but I have a massive muesli bowl. Just get it in your diet as best you can by mixing it in where you can get away with the taste. $22/kg is roughly what I pay from the wholefoods place I go to that sells heaps of dried grains and seeds etc. The way supermarkets sell things there's way too much plastic involved for the amount I eat.

    Thought some peeps might want the chance to provide their feedback on proposed legislation regarding digital identity, or the 'Trusted Digital Identity Bill'... https://www.digitalidentity.gov.au/have-your-say/phase-3/submission-form

    Cacao dosage

    ... stimulating herbs such as Paullinia cupana, Camelia sinensis (Green tea), Coffea arabica/canephora (Coffee), high-grade Theobroma cacao (Cacao) and Ilex paraguariensis could work against the sedative effects of Valeriana officinalis or Humulus lupulus. Clinical Naturopathy: An Evidence-Based Guide to Practice (2019). No further mention of cacao.

    Excerpts on Pituri

    I've got some seeds now but I am worried that it contains a lot of TSNAs (Tobacco Specific Nitrosamines)... that stuff that gives you cancer.... is this true?
  26. Australian_Dream this is why this topic is so interesting! Nobody really knows, we only have small little bites of information. If you decide to proceed be extremely careful! Thank you for the info Trout. If this plant was analyzed and it didn't find anything then most likely Australian_Dream won't find anything either. However there is still is a slight chance you might and since no poisonous compounds were found you can feel a bit safer about it but still be very careful please! I am most excited by finding medicinal or psychoactive compounds that are NOT mescaline but some other compound. To me, that is the most interesting aspect of this investigation. Trucha what is a Dragendorff field test if I may ask?
