The Greater Dandenong councillors are concerned smart meters are bad for people's health.

As many of you are aware Japan has recently suffered a major tsunami caused by one of the largest earthquakes in recorded history. There has been (a still be determined) enormous loss of life just from this and the situation is still developing.
It has been a long time, since my previous (first) blog entry. But I have returned to write more. I must start with an apology for a missing issue of Radiation Protection in Australasia. Those people who were at the conference in Perth, may recall that I promised a final issue for 2009. You may have noticed, by the lack of a copy of the journal in your letter box, that this final issue didn't eventuate. Creation of an issue of the journal is a process that involves a number of people who magically turn a number of documents and email into the final printed product that is posted to members. I didn't allow enough time for the creative publication process to take place before the end of 2009.
Just back from the 34th ARPS conference in Perth. It was a wonderful conference and there was much to learn, in both the presentations and during discussions with other delegates. To my surprise Ivan mentioned that I hadn't started my blog. It was a shocking eureka moment - I have a blog! Once the initial surprise passed, I realised that it makes sense to have a Journal Editors blog. Hence I have checked it out, and I am writing this now.
Of course, my dear wife suggested that I should not inflict myself upon you all. But, so far, the most difficult bit seems to be picking a TAG for this entry, (or perhaps for the blog) and ARPS seems a safe choice, hence I will try to continue writing something here once in a while.
Once ARPS members are logged onto the ARPS web site, they are able to access the “Create content” tab on the left side of the site and present all kinds of useful information for ARPS members and the public.
I'm after a couple of papers on radon. If anyone has access or leads please let me know via:
Many of us working in the radiation protection area use a range of computer software packages to help with our day-to-day work. While the cost of computer hardware has dropped dramatically over recent years, propriety software has remained relatively expensive due to the lack of competition. The purchase price of software for your new laptop can be more than the cost of the laptop.
