In brief:

* My Health Record: the case for opting out (2018-Jul-16) [The Converstaion]

❝ Unless you take action to remove yourself from the My Health Record (MHR) system, the Federal government will make a digital copy of your medical record, store it centrally, and, as the default, provide numerous people with access to it.
If you don’t opt out during this period and later choose to cancel your record, you will no longer be able to access that record but the government will continue to store it until 30 years after your death. You will need to trust that it will not be breached.❞

Cross-Country Ski Intro Day [Venturers]
Mt Baw Baw, Baw Baw Village – c. 2h 40m (145km) from Eltham

Meet at the Scout Hall at 5:45am for a prompt 6am departure. We will be hiring gear at Erica Ski Hire, for boot, ski and pole hire it is $35. There will also be a contribution towards parking and fuel (TBA but less than $20). Return time to the hall will be before 7pm (exact time will depend on travel time)

The Expanse – Season 2

The Expanse
The second season of the sci-fi drama series opens with the introduction of several Martian military characters, including Bobbie Draper (Frankie Adams), one of the loudest voices promoting war against Earth. Meanwhile, Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) survives an assassination attempt and ramps up the war between Earth and Mars. On the Rocinante, Holden (Steven Strait) and Miller (Thomas Jane) recover from the radiation poisoning they got on Eros and decide to store the dangerous Protomolecule in an abandoned asteroid mine for future study. Together with Fred Johnson (Chad L. Coleman), Holden and Miller go on a mission to avenge the Eros genocide, only to make a disturbing discovery: An interplanetary conspiracy is trying to control the Protomolecule and use it as a weapon against alien life forces—and the genocide on Eros was the result of a deployment test! Their mission becomes that of finding a way to stop the conspirators once and for all, by any means necessary.

Based on James S.A. Corey – Caliban’s War (The Expanse, #2)
