Catch in hand - South Australia's Dennis Holder harvests quality seafood at Two Gulf Crabs, which he runs with wife Karen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Great to see Holders recognised with a Gold Medal in this week's Delicious Awards. Great operators producing quality Blue Swimmer Crabs, with an eye on the sustainable future of the fishing industry. We featured Dennis in a story and photos for @FRDC_au FISH Magazine in March 2013. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
http://www.frdc.com.au/…/FISH-…/Voyage-to-an-electric-future⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dennis is also a member of @FairFishSA which has launched a community supported fisheries initiative that allows customers to buy a share of the local catch, both the premium and the not so well know species. Fair Fish SA also won an Outstanding Innovation Award as part of the Delicious Awards.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here at Coretext we are so excited about Science Week its hard to know where to start. Celebrating its 21st year, there are fantastic festivals, activities and events on all around Australia to celebrate - and at www.scienceweek.net.au you can discover them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Particularly tickling our fancy - and accessible from wherever you happen to be in the world - is the Virtual Reef Diver project. Tapping into the power of citizen science, it allows people to classify coral in thousands of underwater images online at www.virtualreef.org.au to help scientists predict coral cover over the Great Barrier Reef. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coretext editorial director Brad Collis indulged in his own spot of underwater photography on a recent trip to the reef. His image shows the reef is as much as an artwork as scientific and natural wonder. He’ll be keeping a close eye on phase two of the project, which will enable people to upload their own photos to the system for analysis.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In a scene from 25 million years ago, the prehistoric giant  Great Jagged Narrow-Toothed shark (which could grow to almost double the size of a Great White) is being feasted upon by several Sixgill Sharks (which still exist today).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How do we know this happened?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A rare fossil find on the Jan Juc cliffs unearthed one of only three known sets of the giant shark teeth along with several others belonging to the smaller species - evidence of the remnants of a colossal shark feast.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All 45 fossil shark teeth - along with a state-of-the-art life-sized eight metre long digital shark animation that appears to swim around the gallery floor - are on display at the #melbournemuseum until October 7.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ll be there checking it out along with other specially programmed #palaeontology events scheduled as part of #nationalscienceweek 2018 - on now!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Save our bees, save ourselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Humans evolved with bees and their honey. This energy-rich, easily consumed, food is credited by many studies as being the reason our ancestors’ craniums began getting larger. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also our cellular chemistry came to rely on the complex biochemistry of honey, and the occasional bee sting gave our immune system a super-charge. So early humans grew progressively smarter and healthier because of honey ... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But human activity is wiping now wiping out bee populations, with recent news reports on the issue which has potentially far-reaching consequences.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Social media makes it look cute, but there is a very serious message here, for our food and our continued survival.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The photo here come from Coretext director Brad Collis's hives in inner Melbourne and a bush location.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Pretty in flower, field peas also pack a powerful protein punch. Seems like the marketers are now getting on the pea protein bandwagon with news agency Reuters reporting soaring global protein demand.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Peas as a protein source has been known since the day humans learned what a protein is, and eons before that in terms of village communities having an appreciation for the sustenance provided.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today peas, and pulses in general today a major part of Australia's cropping industries, even now outweighing wheat in many areas.  Medical science has also long known the direct health benefits of pulses.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But it seems it takes a food companies'  marketing departments to really get the media's attention. As just one example, the Cheerios protein breakfast cereal being produced in the US includes pea proteins.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

These cherries are about to undergo the crush test, checking for the presence – or absence – of Queensland Fruit Fly DNA.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's a requirement of many export markets that we actively demonstrate there are no pests present. And researchers have come up with new molecular technique, such as DNA testing, to help do just that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's another example of the breadth of fascinating science inherent in our agricultural and horticultural industries covered in Coretext's latest edition of Cherry Magazine. Selected stories from the magazine also run as YouTube features. Coretext produces the magazine and the videos for Hort Innovation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As ‘manager of humans’ at Coretext, Larry Labradoodle had a fun time mentoring intern Alayna Hansen, who is soon to complete her RMIT journalism degree. Alayna is keen to become a science writer and came to see how the Coretext team operates. Larry was hoping Alayna would be a bit more into ball-throwing but she quickly became too busy writing for FISH magazine; fisheries research just one example of the science matrix that makes our work endlessly fascinating.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Science gave us plastic, and our voracious appetite for convenience has turned it into a curse - one that science is now also helping to rescue us from. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Saltwater Brewery, a craft microbrewery in Delray Beach, Florida, USA,  has reportedly joined with startup company E6PR to develop a biodegradable version of the plastic rings that hold a six pack of beer cans together. The more breweries sign on, the cheaper production of this new ecofriendly packaging will become.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A piece of wire can fix anything⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Farmers the world over are known for their ingenuity and it’s often the poorest who are the most inventive. When Mekong Delta farmer Huynh Van Lai began growing mangos as part of an Australia aid program to lift rice-dependent villages from poverty he soon came up against the heartache of insect pests, and no money for pesticides. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So he ‘enlisted’ from the nearby forest, green tree ants, that are fierce predators of other insects. But first he had to work out how to allow them to move around his orchard without using the ground where they would scurry back to the forest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
His answer came in the form of ‘bribery’ and some electrical wire that he strung between the trees to create an aerial ant highway.The bribery was a feed of chicken and duck offal to encourage the ants to stay and settle in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once this was achieved, he gradually reduced this food supply to force the ants to use the wire to cross into other trees do their job – hunting down insect pests such as caterpillars and black ants, which damage mangoes when they are flowering.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“It took patience, but it meant I didn't have to use pesticides which saved me a lot of money and also meant my fruit was more acceptable to the supermarkets,” Huynh explained to Coretext's Brad Collis who visited his small holding to report on the impacts of agricultural development aid.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This use of green ants, and the wire bridging, helped Huynh make a great success of his venture: “We have built a new house and bought a motorbike. We are now enjoying modern living," he said proudly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

While scouting a location for a cover shot for a magazine project with Monash Donor Relations, Coretext designer and art director Fiona James found herself mesmerised by the new Learning and Teaching building at Monash Clayton campus. The inspirational building is designed by John Wardle Architects. How beautiful are these textures and light above the stairwell?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The building is a tranquil and immersive space, with innovative acoustic features and curved walls; reminiscent of the work of Frank Gehry.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"As an art director or graphic designer, immersing yourself in innovative environments inspires you to design beyond your everyday. Architecture has always been a source or starting point for me. On this occasion, it's a valuable way to connect to the client's world too."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Adelaide's Santos Museum of Economic Botany, founded in 1881, is dedicated to the collection and interpretation of 'useful' plants. The last museum of its kind, it reflects past and present efforts to better value the fruits, seeds, fungi, plants fibres - ie. the whole plant kingdom in which all animal life resides. A visit to the museum is a wonderful chance to reflect on this bounty and the need to understand and treasure the countless ways plants sustain us every day of our lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Coretext's own Melissa Marino was on the money with her recommendation for a stop-off lunch venue in Ararat, western Victoria. Andrew Cooke was on his way to a celebration of international researchers at Horsham's Grains Innovation Park recently and pulled in at the Vines Cafe and Bar in Ararat. This superb take on chicken caesar salad (perfectly poached chicken breast, crisp streaky bacon, a huge mound of fresh crunchy lettuce and lashings of a wonderful apple-y mayonnaise) hit the spot and helped make a long drive a genuine pleasure. Thanks Mel! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Sobering to think how tools, technologies and entertainments that might have taken decades to develop become passé in the blink of an eye.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You don't have to be too old to remember when this pictured machine represented the cutting edge in portable computers. It took two six-inch floppy disks – one for the software and one for created data – and had a whopping 64 kilobytes of RAM! The size (and weight) of a sewing machine, it was more luggable than portable, but anyone in the '80s seen hefting one of these down the street was a much admired trend-setter. Do you remember this and other wonders; the gestetner, the teleprinter . . . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

About one quarter of the Earth's terrestrial surface is now under cultivation with more land converted to crop production in the 30 years after 1950 than in the previous 150 years. In many regions - including Europe, North America, Australia and recently Brazil, China and India - humanity has also become skilful at raising yields through using fertilizers, pesticides and organic manures. Yet in many poorer countries with low productivity rates and growing populations, agriculture continues to expand into marginal and fragile lands. This presents enormous, and very important, scientific, economic and social challenges that will need to be met within a shrinking timeframe as climate change accelerates.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Food, hunger, world peace, health, education, agricultural science. Put all of these into a hat and no matter how you arrange them, these words dictate our future more than any other area of human activity or influence. But note how far down all of these are on most political agendas. The photo is of Dr Ken Street who works for the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) a body vital to the future of some of the world's poorest and consequently strife-torn regions. ICARDA was based in Syria but forced by the civil war to relocate to Lebanon with many of its scientists scattered around the world. Dr Street had to relocate to his hometown Perth, Western Australia. Such is the scant regard by world leaders for the work of people in whose hands so much of the future rests. Dr Street is known as 'the seed hunter' for his plant collecting missions seeking in remote regions the ancestors of today's food crops to secure the base genetic resources needed to secure food plants against climatic and/or human-imposed calamity. For the moment though, he and his colleagues are, in effect, agricultural science refugees, hoping like the rest of us that a modicum of intelligence is restored to world politics. Soon.

Located about 13 kilometres northeast of Port Douglas, Queensland, the Low Isles lighthouse was built in 1878 and was the first lighthouse in Far North Queensland. Its construction is typical of Queensland lighthouses of the time; timber frame clad with galvanised iron; however it was the first to use portholes. The original oil wick light was upgraded to kerosene in 1923, to electricity in 1963 and finally converted to solar power in 1993. On a recent visit, Coretext specialist designer Aidan Gifkins discovered the tower had been freshly renovated and repainted and made a vibrant contrast to the blues and greens of its tropical location. While the tower is not open to the public, it is home to a pair of nesting Ospreys who enjoy the vantage point to watch over their territory. AND, In what has been described as a “dream job”, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority is tendering for a new caretaker for Low Isles.
