David, keep up the good work of showing these ogres for what they are.  Greed and predatory behaviour have no place in our professions.

Never ending saga of corruption, Suzanne. My inbox is flooded with real estate and mortgage fraud-related cases from law firms and the federal government. Indictments, convictions, sentencing, social impact of the offenses and other important data. I'm glad to be able to share it with you. The FBI provides me with updates daily. It's very disappointing to see these terrible financial crimes unfold within our ranks, and I'm very proud of the work that the FBI has done to stop them. Many thanks for reviewing this case. Hope you have a great weekend.

I think this is very exciting. I saw the stitoan on Jane Street in West End recently with the terminal in place took a few photos. The terminal looks like it has a large colour touchscreen.These bikes really should be exempted from the mandatory helmet requirement. It would be terrible to see it fail. I see Melbourne Bike Share has released some updated figures: 5,500 trips in 97 days. See Twitter @MelbBikeShareThis equates to a mere 57 trips' (ie. less than 30 min) per day which is still less than 0.5% of capacity. They are proud' of these numbers but they are paltry in reality. These figures are even more gloomy if you consider that the last official figures showed that it was being used at the rate of 70 trips per day. I guess the novelty has worn off So many people don't use them because of the helmets. You only have to stand by one of these stitoans and ask the potential users to know this.
