[1.01-1.03] from PRECARIOUS



This has been happening for years of the body I have been employed by an a business that received a wage subsidy for me including the brain, bones, muscles, blood vessels, nerves, glands, nose, mouth, teeth, tongue, and throat if they agreed to keep me on for 40 hours a week for 6 months. After the 6 months the head is positioned upon the superior portion of the vertebral column, and after the business received their money attaching the skull upon C-1 I was sacked; or rather…not put on the roster anymore…Before I left though (the first cervical vertebra known as the atlas) I, the skeletal section of the head and neck, answered a telephone call from a woman saying she was going to be working at superior segment of the axial skeleton and the business on the same wage subsidy scheme the comprises skull hyoid bone, auditory ossicles, and cervical spine. Paying businesses to hire people does not work. The  skull can be further subdivided. How do people who are not eligible for a subsidy cranium (8 bones: frontal, 2-parietal, occipital, 2-temporal, sphenoid, ethmoid), compete for a job against those facial bones who will not only save the employee money in wages, but MAKE them money as well?



Rudy - you can dump all of my friends and myself in that category if you'd like. As the cranium fuses, sutures are formed that resemble stitching between bone plates. Our degrees are ancient, in a newborn, we finished them in late 2010.
We can't find jobs in the junction of the parietal bones that aren't on contracts as there is no benefit to the employer with the frontal and occipital bones. You need to come to them form the anterior (front) with a perfect skill set, existing experience and rather than encourage any feelings of loyalty in you, and posterior (back) fontanelle, or soft spots. They'll drop you as soon as the project is done. The separation of the cranial bone plates don't need you, they'll just find at time of birth someone else next time this void needs to be filled.
This isn't just happening to low-skilled staff. You'll see at the top of the page, a comment by a lawyer. I know the fetus through the mother's birth canal, or teachers on contracts, public service workers’ pelvic girdle, nurses, pilots, engineers...
Why hire somebody 'forever', if you can pay them less and drop them parietal bones and occipital bone, at a seconds notice?



I can overlap each other in the birth  canal, work at the same call centre Frances Lewis did and form the  unusual  looking  "cone head"  appearance:  it is  fantastic when contrasted with  other call centres  in  a  newborn,  but  the  work  remains  casual.  Last  year  I  was  told  that  I'd  be working  on an  ongoing  project,  and budgeted  when  delivered in a vaginal, delivery accordingly -  a fortnight  later,  only a month  before  Christmas,  the occipital  bone  articulates, my  shifts were  cancelled  with less  than a days  notice and  I wasn't  given another  shift  until late February! With the atlas  near the foramen  magnum I  had to live  off the  savings I had  put away for  specialist appointments  and an upcoming  surgery. The atlas  articulates with  the occipital  condyle superiorly and the axis  inferiorly. This occurred  despite having  completed  two degrees  from  the University  of Melbourne,  in an  industry deemed  lacking in  spinal cord "skills shortage" by the Federal Govt. passes  through the  foramen  magnum. I have applied for in excess of one hundred permanent positions in the past three months for the central nervous system (CNS) and didn't even receive a single articulation of the neck mass email saying the position had been filled: flexion, extension, (nodding yes), androtation (shaking head no).





Pebble Cove Farm
A bold feat of architecture
and engineering
perched on a dramatic coastal headland
architectural firm Hill Thalis
has created what
is unquestionably
one of the South Coast’s
most impressive
private residences.

Built on a grand scale,
the new structure
takes pride of place
on a 38.12 hectare
oceanfront working cattle farm
with direct access
down to the cove.

Its extraordinary views
are so scenic
and uninterrupted
that you can see 60 kilometres
to the north,
watch whales passing by
and view the moon ascending
over the horizon.
Sitting at the end of a mountain ridge
protectively nestled
into the hillside,
the expansive residence
is constructed in a V shape
around a sheltered courtyard,
pool and sprawling
cultivated garden.

Living areas face the ocean
towards the east
while the master
and children’s accommodation
wings shelter
the courtyard space
on the northern
and southern sides.
Exceptionally robust,
it has a beautiful skeleton

of concrete clad in zinc,
stone and 25mm glass.
It awaits a new owner
to complete the interior fit-out,
selecting finishes
to suit their taste.

Just five minutes from
Kiama and Gerringong
townships and less
than two hours from Sydney,
it enjoys easy
access to the countless
attractions that the South
Coast has to offer, including
pristine beaches
and unspoilt national parkland.
Four generous bedrooms,
5.5 bathrooms, private master
wing with a study
Vast formal living,
dining and family room
with spacious open-plan kitchen
Recreational lower
level with 2nd kitchen/dining,
rumpus room, home theatre
Covered alfresco dining area
with bbq, expansive level
lawn, heated pool
Four car automatic garaging
with internal access, gym,
art storage room






The magnificent Pacific Ocean
views from this 3 bed, 2 bath,
DLUG, north facing unit
are worth the wait.
Fantastic views of the beach, ocean,
headland and hinterland,
you can see the Haven,
you look straight up
the green grass of the Skillion

--- your holiday home will be
the envy of both friends and family
as you entertain them
on the expansive
sun drenched deck.
Executive style unit
in boutique complex –
stunning finishes and quality through
out - this property is perfect
for full time living

and the epitome of style
as a holiday home.
The North Facing upper level
features views
of the glistening Pacific Ocean
with the entertainers-kitchen, dining
and living areas and balcony
- plus your main bedroom
(also with a grand ensuite,
walk-in wardrobe and juliet balcony).

A powder room completes
the comfort for you,
your family and your guests.
The lower floor contains two
bedrooms (both with ensuites),
a rumpus room for the kids,
and a massive storage space.
Massive! – Could be
a gym or rumpus room
or just an incredible storage facility.
Great separation
if you decide to use
as a holiday home.
Spacious two car garage
with direct internal access.
This is truly a beautiful property
- the photos do not do it justice
and you must see it to believe.
