first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship Nicholas Kotsiras, has encouraged all communities across Victoria to participate in this year’s Anzac Day commemorations. Mr Kotsiras said that the 25th of April was a day for all Australians to honour the sacrifices of those who served and died in all conflicts and peace-keeping operations. Though the Anzac legend has its origins in the Gallipoli campaign of 1915, Mr Kotsiras said this week that “the meaning of Anzac Day extends far beyond that.” “On Anzac Day we commemorate the fallen, acknowledge the service of our veterans and cherish the freedoms secured on our behalf by so many in the many diverse theatres of war and peace-keeping missions since 1915.” Mr Kotsiras said Anzac Day represented the freedom of each and every Australian and the upholding of our democratic principles and way of life. “Australian men and women have fought and many have laid down their lives for us to enjoy freedoms others can only imagine,” said the minister “I encourage all Victorians to pause and acknowledge the contribution of those who fought and died for the freedoms we enjoy. “On Anzac Day, we measure ourselves against the sacrifice of others and renew our commitment to freedom and democracy.” Meanwhile, Premier Ted Baillieu joined thousands of students from schools across Victoria this week at Melbourne Legacy’s 81st ANZAC Commemoration Ceremony for Students at The Shrine of Remembrance. Mr Baillieu said the ANZAC spirit was about bravery and sacrifice. “Australians barely out of their teens risked or gave their lives for the cause of freedom,” Mr Baillieu said. “It’s important that each generation continues to acknowledge the service of our war veterans. This year students from Melbourne High School and Mac.Robertson Girls’ High School formed the Honour Guard, Band, and Choir, and sang rousing versions of We Are Australian and Waltzing Matilda. Attending with the Premier, Victorian Governor the Honourable Alex Chernov AC addressed the students before inspecting a guard of honour with Legacy President Bryce Phillips. Melbourne Legacy was established in 1923 and currently cares for more than 14,000 widows and 600 dependants in Victoria.last_img

Ed Ebert from the Indiana Corn Marketing Council and Indiana Soybean Alliance says the ability of the farmer to get grain from the farm to its destination in a timely and efficient manner is critical and should not be overlooked. He says bridges throughout the state are an area of concern.“If you look at the statistics today, about one out of six bridges out in the rural areas of our state right now are either in need of replacement or upgrades to handle the loads that are common now in modern agriculture. Whether it’s a semi or larger tractors and equipment.”Ebert says many rural bridges may be rated for far less weight than what it can actually support, meaning many farmers have to actively avoid those bridges to deliver their grain. But Ebert says new technology can assist local governments in making those determinations.“The technology that we’re working with, in conjunction with Indiana LTAP (Local Technical Assistance Program) at Purdue University, is a bridge testing system that uses gauges and known weights transiting across the bridge to really interview the bridge to ask it, based on the load going across it and the structure of the bridge, what that bridge is truly capable of safely handling.Ebert wants to let local officials know that this technology is available.“We are attempting to promote this technology, so we can see broader scale adoption because it’s a real efficiency issue for local governments.”If you have a bridge near you that you wish could be tested, you or your local official can contact Ebert at [email protected] By Eric Pfeiffer – Jul 18, 2018 New Technology Available to Test Rural Bridges SHARE Previous articleHouse Moves to Send Farm Bill to Conference Committee, Appoints ConfereesNext articleDennis Maple Elected to National Corn Board, Ending Long Indiana Drought Eric Pfeiffer Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img
