4 Streets of Melbourne - Thierry Nguyen Cuu
Auteur : Thierry Nguyen Cuu
Genre : Photographie
In this issue of my series Shades of Light, I bring to you the one day life of a Leica photographer wandering the streets of an iconic city, Melbourne.
I spent the day in Melbourne with nothing but my Leica M9. Although I packed a few lenses, I mainly used the 50mm Summilux ASPH.
I remember reading a lot of magazines, books, weblogs and also online videos, when asked who they would like to photograph along, most of photographers would throw out big names in the photography history.
While I look up to a lot of photographers, established or even new comers, while I admire the work of many, the one person that I really want to shoot along is my father.
We share the same passion for photography, actually I must say that I got it from him, we even use the same gears (again I walk on his footsteps) I just realised that we never had or took the opportunity to shoot toget

10 Melbourne - Philip Ziegler
Auteur : Philip Ziegler
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
'I agree with Lord David [Cecil] that Melbourne as a friend or relative must have been one of the most delightful, wise and entertaining of men, but in public life I believe him also to have been ambitious, cynical and almost wholly without political principle. He was, in short, much less of a carefree amateur, much more of a politician.' Philip Ziegler, from his Preface

First published in 1976, Philip Ziegler's Melbourne drew on hitherto unused material and made an unprecedently searching assessment of the eminent Whig statesman of the 1830s/40s. It is extraordinary enough that Queen Victoria's first Prime Minister should have been dragged through the courts by an aggrieved husband not once but twice. Yet Melbourne's 'problematic' personal life is only one reason why Ziegler, even-handed and scrupulous, was compelled to test the validity of Victoria's famous final judg

11 Melbourne - Sophie Cunningham
Auteur : Sophie Cunningham
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
Sophie Cunningham writes a year in the city’s life, a year that takes us from the heatwave that culminated on Black Saturday when temperatures soared to 47 degrees to the destructive deluge of a hailstorm. She walks through Melbourne’s oldest suburb to its largest market, she goes to the footy and to the comedy festival, she talks publishing and learns how to use a letterpress. Along the way she journeys deep into her own recollections of the city she grew up in, and tells stories from its history: the theft of Picasso’s Weeping Woman, the Hoddle Street massacre, William Barak’s trek from Healesville, the Westgate Bridge Disaster, the high drama of the 1970 and 2009 AFL grand finals and the Market Murders of the sixties. She strolls by Melbourne’s rivers and creeks while considering the history of the wetlands and river that sit at Melbourne’s heart. She clambers throu

Pelletier
14 Pelletier - Stephanie Anderson
Auteur : Stephanie Anderson
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
This book tells the story of a French cabin boy, Narcisse Pelletier, and his life with the Uutaalnganu people of north-east Cape York from 1858 to 1875. Even though it is all but forgotten in Australia, and in France is known only in its broad outlines, Pelletier's story rivals that of the famous William Buckley, both as a tale of human survival and as an enthralling and accessible ethnographic record.
 
Narcisse Pelletier, from the village of Saint-Gilles-sur-Vie, was fourteen years old when the Saint-Paul was wrecked near Rossel Island off New Guinea in 1858. Leaving behind more than 300 Chinese labourers recruited for the Australian goldfields - believed to have been subsequently massacred by the Rossel Islanders - the ship's captain and crew, including the cabin boy, escaped in a longboat. After a gruelling voyage across the Coral Sea, they landed near Cape Direction

Auteur : Alec McHoul; Wendy Grace both of Murdoch University, Melbourne, Australia. & McHoul, Alec; Grace, Wendy
Genre : Philosophie
Who are we today? That deceptively simple question continued to be asked by the French historian and philosopher, Michel Foucault, who for the last three decades has had a profound influence on English-speaking scholars in the humanities and social sciences.; This text is designed for undergraduates and others who feel in need of some assistance when coming to grips with Foucault's voluminous and complex writings. Instead of dealing with them chronologically, however, this book concentrates on some of their central concepts, primarily Foucault's rethinking of the categories of "discourse", "power", and " the subject".; Foucault's writings contribute collectively to what he himself calls "an ontology of the present". His historical research was always geared towards showing how things could have been and still could be otherwise. This is especia

This concise text presents a focused, well-rounded, and clear-eyed introduction to the concept of human security. Questioning the utility of traditional national-security frameworks in the post–Cold War era, Paul Battersby and Joseph M. Siracusa argue that we must urgently reconsider the principle of state sovereignty in a global world where threats to humanity are beyond the capacity of any one nation to address through unilateral action. A welcome alternative to state-centric approaches to security, this balanced book will be a valuable supplement for courses in international and national security.

32 The Best TV Reception in 'Melbourne': Fitzroy 'Low-Life' & the Invasion of the Renovator. - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
In the 1960s the inner-Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy began a process of economic and social change, resulting in the dislocation of many longterm residents. Some people were shifted out of the suburb as a result of government 'housing reforms'. Others were more gradually dislocated. It was the renovator's paint-brush and the commodification of Fitzroy's 'diversity' that would eventually transform the suburb into the place that it is today; a place of 'real delis', 'taste' and 'fashion sense'. This article engages with some of these Fitzroy narratives. For much of the twentieth century the inner-Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy (1) was represented as a dangerous and decaying abyss, an archetypal urban 'shadow' against the 'light' of a society making claims to modernism and development, particularly during the era of postwar reconstruction in Australia after 1945. This discourse of urban dystopia

33 The False Analogy Between Vilification and Sedition (Australia) - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[In 2005, the Commonwealth introduced new sedition laws which created the offence of '[u]rging violence within the community '. The construction of this offence is the product of a false analogy that has been drawn between vilification and sedition. This article critiques both the analogy and its implications, arguing that vilification and sedition are conceptually distinct and, indeed, directly counterposed to one another Analogising the concepts has two unintended and undesirable consequences. First, the institutionalisation of the analogy in a component of the new sedition laws has contributed to significant weaknesses in the construction of that law. Secondly, a failure to differentiate sufficiently between the core rationales for legislating against vilification and legislating against sedition could have consequences for the ways in which the public understands these offences.

34 Judging the Judges: Are They Adopting the Rights Approach in Matters Involving Children? - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[There are increasing calls for judges to take children's rights seriously. However, the problem with such calls is that they invariably fail to address the factors that undermine the capacity of a judge to engage with children's rights. This article seeks to respond to this gap in the literature. It offers a model of children "s rights which is grounded in the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. It then examines domestic, regional and international case law and concludes that the current treatment of children's rights by judges can generally be located along a spectrum that ranges from the "invisible' to the 'substantive '. In between these extremes lie approaches that are classified by the author as 'incidental', 'selective', 'rhetorical' or 'superficial'. All of these approaches, other than the substantive, tend to overlook, marginalise or misuse th

[In the 12 years since native title was first recognised in Australia, 32 determinations, of a total of 49, have pronounced native title to be extinguished over at least part of the area claimed (as of 25 March 2004). This has been as a result of either government acts that are inconsistent with native title rights, or because the contemporary existence of traditional law could not be proved. The Yorta Yorta ease, in many ways a test case for native title rights in south-eastern Australia. considered the second manner of extinguishment. This article critically assesses the Federal and High Court decisions, and argues that the courts have applied a notion of tradition and cultural continuity that is unnecessarily narrow, denying recognition oft he rights of Aboriginal people who, in spite of colonisation, see their law as existing in the present tense.] I INTRODUCTION

I first note that workers experiencing sweatshop conditions are more likely to be linked to Australian firms through "buyer-driven supply chains" than via direct employment relations. I then consider the current regulatory framework relevant to the relationship between Australian firms and foreign workers, surveying the common law, statute, self-regulatory initiatives in the private sector, and multi-stakeholder initiatives involving non-governmental organisations and international agencies. Each of these has only limited effectiveness. In the final part of the article, I investigate the potential for new regulatory strategies. I highlight the limitations of an overly prescriptive approach and examine the feasibility of various

38 Generally Inconvenient': The 1624 Statute of Monopolies As Political Compromise. - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[The Statute of Monopolies 1624 is central to one of the tests for patentability of inventions in the Patents Act 1990 (Cth). The continued reference to the statute, almost 400 years after it was enacted, accords it an almost idealised status within patent law. Such a status does not acknowledge the political context of its passage through the Jacobean Parliament. This article addresses key aspects of the early modern period--including economic depression, issues of succession, and the rivalry between the City of London and the outports--to argue that the Statute of Monopolies is best seen as a compromise, a political deal done between the Crown, the House of Lords and the individuals and groups within the House of Commons.] I INTRODUCTION

Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[This article presents an empirical study of the regulation of termination payments found in Part 2D.2 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and Australian Securities Exchange ('ASX') Listing Rule 10.19, as well as limits endorsed in the Australian Council of Super Investors Inc ('ACSI') Corporate Governance Guidelines. Based on the termination payments contemplated by the executive service contracts of a sample of S&P/ASX 50 managing directors, the empirical results demonstrate the sheer magnitude of the thresholds contained in Part 2D.2 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and ASX Listing Rule 10.19, and highlight problems with classifying share-based remuneration payments' according to the current Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) ss 200F-200G descriptions. This article also notes the prevalence of contractual or share plan terms that permit share-based payments to be made without reference

40 Should the Administrative Law Act 1978 (Vic) be Repealed? - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[The Administrative Law Act 1978 (Vic) was a significant reform to judicial review in Victoria. The Act introduced several changes such as a simplified test for standing and a right to reasons for decisions, which appeared to create a simpler statutory avenue of judicial review. But the Act has many flaws. Some are technical, but others, such us the uncertain relationship the Act creates between statutory and common law judicial review, are substantive. This article examines the operation and limitations of the Act and considers whether it should be reformed or repealed.] I INTRODUCTION

41 The Limits of Voluntariness in Contract (Australia) - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[Contractual obligations are routinely characterised in the contract literature as voluntary or voluntarily assumed. This article examines the major challenges to the voluntaristic conception of contract. An obligation can be regarded as voluntary only if it is meaningfully understood, and the decision to assume it is intentional and substantially unconstrained. Many contractual obligations arise from standard form terms, which are commonly unread, frequently misunderstood, and routinely unavoidable due to the lack of available alternatives. In some circumstances, the obligations and curtailments of rights arising from unread standard form terms can be regarded as voluntary, but in others they cannot. In exceptional cases, the objective approaches to formation and interpretation result in parties becoming subject to obligations that they cannot be said to have voluntarily assumed. The ob

42 Administrative Justice - Towards Integrity in Government. (Australia) - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[The concept of administrative justice--justice within the administrative law system is a relatively new one and has received less sustained attention in Australia than elsewhere. This article notes the history of the concept in Australia, how it is used, and examines which bodies should be subject to administrative justice. The most vexed issue, however, is how to assess whether administrative justice has been achieved. By what standard is administrative justice to be measured? The author has chosen a methodology based on that adopted by Australian researchers who mapped national integrity systems. Since administrative law bodies were among the government agencies selected for that research, the hypothesis is that a methodology which applies to the whole can apply equally to the parts. That methodology, was used to map the strengths and weaknesses of the administrative law system, and h

43 Should We Follow the Gospel of the Administrative Decisions (Judicial Review) Act 1977 (CTH)? - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[The Administrative Decisions (Judicial Review Act) 1977 (Cth) marked a radical reform of judicial review of administrative action in Australia. The Act introduced a statutory procedure for judicial review which was designed to provide a better alternative to judicial review at common law. The Act simplified the procedure for judicial review applications, codified the grounds of review and introduced important new rights such as the right to reasons for decisions amenable to review under the Act. In the first decade or so of its operation, the Act became the primary vehicle for judicial review at the federal level It also served as a model for reform for several states and territories, which enacted judicial review statutes that were based closely on the federal statute. This article examines why the influence of the Act has faltered in recent years. It concludes that some parts of the A

Regulation
Marriage
44 The Legal Regulation of Marriage. - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[The eligibility of two persons to marry has recently been the subject of significant judicial and parliamentary activity. Internationally a number of jurisdictions have enacted statutes that expressly write in or ban same-sex marriage. Meanwhile, in proceedings relating to the validity of a marriage, courts have been required to make findings as to the sex of a person who has undergone transsexual transition to the sex opposite to that which they were assigned at birth. This article critiques the Commonwealth Parliament's passage of legislation in 2004 proscribing same-sex marriages in Australia and contends that to do so was unnecessary and discriminatory. The article then reviews the trial and appeal decisions of the Family Court of Australia that upheld the validity of a marriage entered into by a woman with a man who had originally been assigned the sex of female.] I INTRODUCTION

45 How Much Does It Hurt? How Australian Businesses Think About the Costs and Gains of Compliance and Noncompliance with the Trade Practices Act. - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[Law-makers, courts and regulators all assume that businesses' compliance with the law is at least partly influenced by management's rational calculations about the costs and gains of compliance and noncompliance. In this article, the authors use evidence from a survey of 999 large Australian businesses and these businesses' experiences of compliance and enforcement under the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) ('TPA') to examine how large Australian businesses perceive the costs and gains of compliance and noncompliance with the Act. First, the authors look at how serious these businesses perceive the threat of financial penalties, criminal convictions, and economic and social losses to be in the event of noncompliance, as well as whether they see benefits such as organisational learning as gains of compliance. Secondly, the authors examine whether enforcement action of the Australian Compet

47 Climate Change Law: The Emergence of a New Legal Discipline. - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[In recent times the issue of climate change has catapulted to the forefront of scientific and policy agendas. Climate change threatens to have wide-ranging impacts on ecosystems and presents enormous challenges for conventional modes of socioeconomic governance. Against this backdrop, the last few years have seen the consolidation of a body of legal rules and principles organised around the central problems of mitigating and adapting to climate change. The new climate change law spans from international to local levels of governance, and encompasses the activities of a wide range of actors including governments, businesses and non-governmental environmental groups. This article surveys the scope of the new discipline of climate change law, providing a synopsis of its primary component areas. It also elaborates the main challenges climate change law is likely to face as its development p

48 After Tabcorp, For Whom Does the Bellgrove Toll? Cementing the Expectation Measure As the 'Ruling Principle' for Calculation of Contract Damages (Australia) - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[The High Court case of Tabcorp v Bowen Investments offers an opportunity to reassess the body of law which has grown around the calculation of contractual damages for defective building work. This article undertakes such an analysis, placing Tabcorp within the dual contexts of defective work damages specifically (in particular, the Court's confirmation that Bellgrove v Eldridge provides the applicable test) and the broader debate in contract law as to which interest is primarily to be afforded protection through damages. In respect of the latter, it is submitted that the Court's vigorous restatement of the primacy of Parke B's 'ruling principle', based upon the expectation interest, may be expected to have resonance well beyond the sphere of defective building.] I INTRODUCTION

49 A Moment of Change - Personal Reflections on the National Native Title Tribunal 1994-98. (Australia) - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[The National Native Title Tribunal was set up under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) to provide an institutional mechanism for receiving, registering and mediating native title determination and compensation applications, and for arbitrating on the proposed grant of mining interests affecting native title. In this article, the former President of the Tribunal reflects upon the first five years of the Tribunal's existence from his perspective and through his experiences as its President from 1994 to 1998. The embryonic state of the new common law of native title, combined with a new and complex statute, interacted with indigenous expectations and non-indigenous fears, uncertainties and hostilities. This created a challenging and difficult environment for the National Native Title Tribunal, which was established to manage substantial parts of the native title process. The article considers
