    [–] Carindale never changes Niscellaneous 5 points ago in brisbane

    Actually, cars have gotten wider since the 60's due to increased safety features. So the allocated space for people getting in and out of cars decreases. Conversely, because of schemes like Green Star and NABERS they give increased scores to maximize car park spaces. So if developers narrow down the spaces by lobbying, they get more Green Stars.

    [–] Sex offender registries don't prevent re-offending (and vigilante justice is real) Niscellaneous 38 points ago in australia

    From the article.

    " Knowing where convicted sex offenders live may allow people to believe they can organise their and their children’s lives to reduce the risk of harm. This may be attractive to politicians seeking to tap into people’s wish to protect their children. But the Australian Institute of Criminology review concluded registries had no appreciable effect on levels of fear in the community. "

    " Conversely, some researchers have considered whether registries actually do the opposite and magnify safety fears. In 2007, residents of an upstate New York town displayed what the researchers called “community-wide hysteria”, including sleeping difficulties, after notification about sex offenders living nearby.

    Others have raised concerns access to registers may lead to a false sense of security and perpetuate myths about “stranger danger” when most child sex offenders are known by, and are often related to, the victim. Some Australian groups have expressed concerns that publication in small communities may mitigate against reporting, as well as identify and stigmatise victims. "

    [–] Lime recalls all of its scooters in Switzerland after multiple accidents Niscellaneous 4 points ago in brisbane

    Yes and no. Segway make the scooters and probably the software with it. Lime are just the company who put them on the street from what I can tell. More the likely, Lime will likely pass on the costs to Segway.
