'''Harry George Hawker''' MBE (Order of the British Empire), AFC (Air Force Cross (United Kingdom)), (22 January 1889 – 12 July 1921 ) was an Australian aviation pioneer and co-founder of Hawker Aircraft, the firm that would later be responsible for a long series of successful military aircraft. Early life Hawker was born in Moorabbin, Victoria (Victoria (Australia)), Australia. ''The Automobile'' September 2007 Harry Hawker - Automobilist. author Bruce Lindsay As an 11-year-old, he worked at the Melbourne garage of Hall & Warden, helping to build engines for five shillings (shilling) a week, moving on to the Tarrant Motor & Engineering Co, helping make Tarrant cars, where he qualified as a mechanic. In 1907, he moved again to become the chauffeur and mechanic for Ernest De Little in Caramut, Western Victoria (Victoria, Australia) before going to England in 1912. Here he joined the Commer Car Company (Commer) and then the Sopwith Aviation Company in late 1912. Australia Australia is believed to be the first federation to have introduced a formal system of horizontal fiscal equalisation (HFE) which was introduced in 1933 to compensate States (States of Australia) which have a lower capacity to raise revenue. Many federations use fiscal equalisation to reduce the inequalities in the fiscal capacities of sub-national governments arising from the differences in their geography, demography, natural endowments and economies. However the level of equalisation sought varies. In Australia, the objective is full equalisation. left thumb Common water hyacinth in flower (Image:water hyacinth.jpg) Water hyacinth has been widely introduced in North America, Asia, Australia, Africa and New Zealand. They can be found in large water areas such as Louisiana, or in the Kerala Backwaters in India. In many areas it, particularly ''E. crassipes'', is an important and pernicious invasive species. First introduced to North America in 1884, an estimated 50 kilograms per square metre of hyacinth once choked Florida's waterways, although the problem there has since been mitigated. When not controlled, water hyacinth will cover lakes and ponds entirely; this dramatically impacts water flow, blocks sunlight from reaching native aquatic plants, and starves the water of oxygen, often killing fish (or turtles). The plants also create a prime habitat for mosquitos, the classic vector (Vector (epidemiology))s of disease, and a species of snail known to host a parasitic (parasite) flatworm which causes schistosomiasis (snail fever). Directly blamed for starving subsistence farmers in Papua New Guinea, water hyacinth remains a major problem where effective control programs are not in place. Water hyacinth is often problematic in man-made ponds if uncontrolled, but can also provide a food source for gold fish, keep water clean and help to provide oxygen to man-made ponds. '''Camberwell''' is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria (Victoria (Australia)), Australia, 9 km east from Melbourne's central business district (Melbourne city centre).

He took possession of the estate in 1845 having taken on his father Alexander's considerable debts and the mortgages on the property (he formally inherited it in 1848). In an attempt to raise funds he also sold furniture he had acquired in London on behalf of his father but for which he had never been reimbursed. He did not however complete the house, and it remained without its planned colonnade. The house became a meeting place for a small circle of intellectuals and naturalists, though Macleay was not known for being actively sociable. Thomas Mitchell Jnr satirised the house and owner: 'Bleak House blears blindly o'er Eliza's Bay, chill as its owner's hospitality' (Carlin, p45). Macleay was interested in the natural history of Australia, the marine fauna around Port Jackson in particular. Later he collected a large number of Australian insects; on his death these were bequeathed to his cousin William John Macleay, whose interest in natural history he encouraged and who in 1888 transferred them to the Macleay Museum, University of Sydney, for which act he was knighted. He also encouraged the scientific interests of his brother George Macleay.

making silver

the value of silver in relation to gold. As such, silver dollars (worldwide) fell in value against the US dollar, the Canadian dollar and the Newfoundland dollar. This did not affect the Spanish dollar accounts that were being used in the British territories in the Eastern Caribbean because these were merely paper units that were being used in conjunction with sterling (Pound sterling) coinage at a fixed rate of $1 4s 2d. It did however have the effect of making

silver dollar coins return to the West Indies. Silver dollars had very much disappeared in the West Indies following the discovery of gold in Australia in 1851. The return of silver dollars to the West Indies after 1873 threatened the gold standard there that had been in operation since 1704, and so by the year 1876, the British West Indies territories began to pass legislation to demonetize the silver dollars. In the Far East and in Latin America, the silver dollars

Australia

'''Australia''' is an Oceanian country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent (Australia (continent)), the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands (list of islands of Australia). It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area (List of countries and dependencies by area). Neighbouring countries include Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east.

For at least 40,000 years who spoke languages grouped into roughly 250 language groups (Australian Aboriginal languages). Walsh, Michael (1991) "Overview of indigenous languages of Australia" in Suzane Romaine (ed.) ''Language in Australia'', Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, ISBN 0-521-33983-9. After the European discovery of the continent by Dutch (Dutch Republic) explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain) in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the continent was explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies were established.

On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated (Federation of Australia), forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Since Federation, Australia has maintained a stable liberal democratic (liberal democracy) political system that functions as a federal (Federalism) parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy comprising six states and several territories (States and territories of Australia). The population of 23.6 million is highly urbanised (Urbanization) and heavily concentrated in the eastern states (Eastern states of Australia) and on the coast.

Australia is a developed country and one of the wealthiest in the world, with the world's 12th-largest economy (List of countries by GDP (nominal)). In 2012 Australia had the world's fifth-highest per capita income (List of countries by GDP (nominal) per capita). Data refer mostly to the year 2012. World Economic Outlook Database-October 2013, International Monetary Fund. Accessed on 8 October 2013. Australia's military expenditure is the world's 13th-largest (List of countries by military expenditures). With the second-highest human development index globally (List of countries by Human Development Index), Australia ranks highly (International rankings of Australia) in many international comparisons of national performance, such as quality of life, health, education, economic freedom, and the protection of civil liberties and political rights. Australia is a member of the United Nations, G20 (G-20 major economies), Commonwealth of Nations, ANZUS, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), World Trade Organization, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, and the Pacific Islands Forum.
