    Good question, I looked it up myself the day I returned home from O/S. The answer is given here

    To rise to its maximum height, the crane grows itself one mast section at a time!
    The crew uses a top climber or climbing frame that fits between the slewing unit and the top of the mast.
    BTW I removed the night shot, too much space!

    Gay police at Newtown station in Sydney were accused of shocking things that undercover agents found not to be correct. Warning a little too much detail.

    Four gay police officers have won a "monumental" legal victory against the NSW Police Force, after a tribunal found homophobia drove their boss to make false complaints accusing them of drug taking and "loose morals" which triggered an undercover investigation.
    The NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal upheld the "serious" allegations that Superintendent Simon Hardman was motivated "either consciously or unconsciously" to make the false complaints because of the men's sexuality while in charge of Newtown Local Area Command.

    this Christian couple can't adopt because they are anti gay. Years ago this was predicted by Christian conservatives who were calling gay rights the thin edge of the wedge.

    Maybe there should be a thread for straight's issues?
