The Project TV “Getting Naked” special news report by Charlie Pickering video about declining nudism in Australia (Channel Ten Friday 22nd February 2013)

Nudism on the nudist beaches, and in the nudist clubs in Australia appears to be a declining trend, especially with Generation Y. Although baring all in the nudism scene might be on the decline, baring all via technology is on the rise, especially since the invention of camera phones, and webcam chat, which is dominated by Generation Y with their sharing of naked selfies and other virtual antics nude online.

On Friday the 22nd February 2013, The Project on Channel Ten did a special news report about baring all becoming a declining trend in Australia, titled Hello CheekyThe Project went searching for the naked truth about nudists, in a discreet way. If you want to catch a glimpse of a lot more nudity than they’re allowed to show on a prime time TV show, you’ll have to visit a legal nudist beach in Australia, for the experience. Read the full news story: The Project TV: The Naked Truth About Nudists & see The Project TV: Getting Naked news story video

EARTHQUAKE SHAKES MELBOURNE VICTORIA Near Moe 19th June 2012

The biggest earthquake to shake Victoria in 109 years was felt by millions of people at 8:55 pm on Tuesday the 19th of June 2012. The quake shook most of the state of Victoria, and parts of New South Wales in Australia, with a magnitude of 5.4 for about 30 to 40 seconds. It was approximately 10km deep with the epicentre between Moe and Trafalgar   in the southeast.

The Geoscience Australia website went into meltdown as many people searched for information about the earthquake, while Facebook and Twitter was flooded with quake talk. Visit Geoscience Australia for the official earthquake details regarding seismograms, data, shaking and damage area, technical and scientific information and summary. See some of the first news coverage from 2 hours after the Victorian quake…

There were more than 60 aftershocks in the area near Moe within 24 hours since the earthquake began. Most of the aftershocks were small and unnoticeable, except for one that registered a magnitude of 3.5 on the Richter Scale. The aftershocks will continue in the area, with the possibility of a quake equaling or exceeding the original one on Tuesday night over the next few weeks, according to experts. Geoscience Australia is setting up aftershock monitoring equipment in the area to pinpoint the location of the initial quake, which was almost as strong as the magnitude 5.6 quake that killed 13 people in the Newcastle earthquake in 1989.

24 year old Nathan Laurens aka Nate from the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, was upstairs attempting to video record himself playing guitar and singing, when the house started shaking during the Victorian earthquake on Tuesday 19th June 2012. See the video Nathan uploaded on YouTube…

Could Victoria have a BiG EARTHQUAKE like the 2011 Christchurch Earthqauke? Experts say yes, but Victoria would be spared the most devastating tremors. Victoria will not experience a magnitude 9 earthquake as Japan had in 2011, because Australia sits atop a stable magnetic plate.

The FUNNY SiDE Of The QUAKE: Victorians were able to have a laugh after the state had a big shake, as seen on Twitter and Facebook on Tuesday night (19 June 2012)…

"2012 Melbourne Earthquake.. We Will Rebuild"
“2012 Melbourne Earthquake.. We Will Rebuild”

The laughs continued when my friend Dom B posted a call out to help the Bogan capital of Victoria, Moe, with the following post on Facebook… 

MOE EARTHQUAKE DiSASTER APPEAL… dig deep people!.. An earthquake measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale hit Moe at 9pm Tuesday evening, with its epicentre in Haigh Street. The earthquake decimated the area causing approximately $30.00 worth of damage. Victims were seen wandering around aimlessly, muttering “Faaackinell”. Three areas of historic burnt out cars were disturbed. Many locals were woken well before their centre link cheques arrived. The Moe local paper has reported that hundreds of residents were confused and bewildered and were still trying to come to terms with the fact that something interesting had happened in Moe. One resident – Tracy Sharon Smith, a 15-year-old mother of 5 said “It was such a shock, my little Chardonnay-Mercedes came running into lounge room crying. My youngest two, Kevin and Jason slept through it all.” Apparently looting, muggings and car crime were unaffected and carried on as normal. The Australian Red Cross has so far managed to ship 4,000 crates of Bacardi-Breezers to the area to help the stricken locals. Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have found large quantities of personal belongings, including Health Care Cards, also Jewellery and Bone China from Big W.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?.. This appeal is to raise money for food and clothing parcels for those unfortunate enough to be caught up in this disaster. Clothing is most sought after – items most needed include: Moccasins, Hoodies, baseball caps, flannel shirts, tracksuits, singlets (blue & white) white sport socks, Reebok boots, and any other items usually sold at Dimmy’s or The $2 Shop. Food parcels may be harder to come by, but are needed all the same. Required foodstuffs urgently needed include: Microwave meals, Baked beans, Ice cream, Chips, Soft Drinks. Donations of $15.00 will be taken to buy a packet of Winny Blue 25s and a lighter to calm the nerves of those affected….you gotta laugh!

Chris Lilley best known for his television creations, We Can Be Heroes: Finding The Australian of the YearSummer Heights High, and Angry Boys, posted a photo of the quake damage at his house on his Twitter
