Hailstones survived 12 days after storm

Seen on a Facebook post  - Nov 16th:
Steph & Simon Schmidt sustained damage in the freak thunderstorms on the 4th Nov. which caused major flooding to several areas of South Australia and quite a bit of damage in the Mid North area including Burra.

Steph posted - "12 days after the hailstorm we still have dams full of hail and unfortunately still losing sheep who wander in to the dams, 1200 acres of crops gone, fences and livestock lost, we took a beating with this one."

Steph rounded up the conversation with,
"Farming is definitely one big gamble. We're looking on the bright side that it took the course it did and didn't take out all of our crops. Simon just had a chat to Caroline Winter at the Country Hour so we'll have to listen tomorrow"

Keep your ears open for Simon talking on the ABC Rural Country Hour with Caroline Winter.

Ed: You have to admire the farming spirit.Well done to Steph and Simon.

## TECH NEWS ## Ransomware threat to your business (and privacy)

A new development in the ransomware saga has been bought to light with the "Chimrea varient" now threatening to publish private data online if the ransom is not paid.
For the end user this could lead to identity theft which is horrible. Imagine if a business got hit this this! The ramifications could be huge.

A good reason to buy good 'name brand' Internet Security, and back up your data regularly

## TECH NEWS ## Leaky mobile phones are 'betraying' us

Mobile apps are regularly leaking information to third parties, according to research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Harvard, and Carnegie-Mellon.

The researchers tested 110 popular, free apps - half of them Android and half iOS - to find out which ones share personal, behavioral, and location data with third-party websites.

Q Fever support group for the Mid North

It seems reasonable to consider that residents in our region could be exposed to this disease. 

Kendall Jackson was working as a rural reporter for the ABC, covering the Jamestown sheep markets when she contracted Q Fever in 2004. 

The support group and Livestock SA are pushing for the Q Fever vaccine to be subsidised by the government.

National Motor Museum celebrates 50th this weekend

This district has a great following of people who own or admire old and historic vehicles and the meca of all is the National Motor Museum at Birdwood. They are celebrating turning 50 on the Sunday 22nd Nov with a picnic at the mill.

Over the years the Museum has developed to become the largest collection of historic and classic vehicles in the country. Quite an achievement. We wish them well with celebrations.
