There are many countries in the world using polymer currency notes. Australia, Canada, the EU, UK are among them. Being unfamiliar with the characteristics of polymer notes may expose you to significant real risk of loss by receiving counterfeit changes.
This posting shows the most effective ways to distinguish between real and counterfeit Australian polymer notes. Vietnamese polymer currency notes [3,4] (printed under technology licensed by Note Printing Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Reserve Bank of Australia) are also mentioned to illustrate detection techniques.
You need no tool for most of these tests but you may need to carry a genuine $50AUS note with you all the time as your sample. The tools for some of the tests are a high power (x10) magnifying glass and a UV LED torch. The technique can be readily applied to other polymer notes such as Canadian and…

Your bank may be on its week long holiday (for Christmas or Easter) and your internet banking is suspended. You have only some small cash to survive one week (ATM’s only give small amount of cash) and you cannot execute large payments to meet all your contractual obligations.
How may your internet banking get suspended?
For some banks, one of them is Westpac Bank in Australia, if you log in with your (short) account number and supply the wrong password twice, the internet access is locked up. The internet lock will remain until you personally turn up at a branch to request its removal.
You have to survive on your own cash, Automatic Teller Machine cash and credit/debit cards until your branch of the bank re-opens.
How may the bank get sabotaged?
If a malicious person does not like you and happens to know your short account number he can…

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s controversial homebrew email server was the subject of months of debate between Clinton supporters and voters backing President-elect Donald Trump leading up to the election.
Trump supporters’ cries to “Lock her up” reverberated through rallies across the country. And during the second presidential debate, Trump told Clinton, “If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation.”
But according to new reports, that’s not going to happen.
“The president-elect will not pursue any investigations into Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server, and also for the questions surrounding the Clinton Foundation,” MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” reported Tuesday, saying that their source told them Trump felt they’d “been through enough.”
The sources was confirmed by Trump’s former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, who said “I think when the President-elect, who’s also the head…

Know all men by their deeds. Too many times, people in authority will twist a set of facts to suit their political goal. People, good people, at times will be cast as villains. Julian Assange, was subjected to vilification and thus made a man without a nation. WikiLeaks, scorned worse than the Devil’s post. During the 2016 US Presidential Election cycle, a series of communications made public, that otherwise would have concealed many crimes. It took courage. Julian Assange, faced what otherwise could have been a defacto death warrant and prevailed. He earned his freedom. President-elect Trump, should issue a pardon, without prejudice, to Julian Assange, once inaugurated. The writing on the wall, indicates that might become reality as the government of Sweden is meeting with Julian Assange . A White House Petition, was blocked, with only six signatures, asking for Assange to be pardoned as a whistleblower , and that is unthinkable to block, because it indicates a political spitefulness. I question the whistleblower laws, or selectively singling out only one person, because in America, the mouths of leaders say one thing and do another, such as heavily punishing whistleblowers. It has gone back to the 1980s and possibly the mid-1970s on federal, state, and local levels. If one is pardoned, then all should be pardoned, and what of, restitution for damaged careers and damaged lives? This is brought up, as Obama is going to grant a pardon to Hillary Clinton, for a multitude of criminal activity . I believe pardoning a career criminal is wrong. Obama is trying to protect the one person who can finger him as the mastermind of crimes in America and overseas that resulted in death and destruction.
