"VoicePerfect, a Smart State company, originally developed its PathSpeak voice recognition technology for the health industry in conjunction with Queensland Health Pathology and Scientific Services," said Mr Beattie.

With its use in hospitals in the United Kingdom, Singapore and Australia, PathSpeak has become a valuable diagnostic tool that enables pathologists to create diagnoses and reports simply by speaking.

Queensland children and families in rural and regional Queensland will receive targeted localised child protection services following the creation of 46 new child safety service centres and nine outreach offices across the state.

Kens Comment: Betties political gang are suffering from the Narcistic Syndrome with a variation of Maunchausens syndrome thrown in.

This is not what a government is voted in for, so an ex-schoolteacher who has destroyed oppotunities for male teachers can "create" more jobs for unemployables while he destroys families.

"The childs best interest" is not even a principal of law, just a phrase abused by child stealers. Beattie, face me at any TV current affairs program and I'll set you straight on the few, forgotten legal principals your gang have had to ignore to "create departments".

Like it or not the child still belongs to the FATHER due to a law 6000 years old (Parens Partae) and is still in force.

Get out of the family and the house NOW, idiots, instead of assisting to destroy the whole civilisation.

"Smart State", You have to be joking, go see a junk science shrink. Bloody international arse licker!

I walk in the front door: "I'm home, dear."

"Were you gone?"comes my wife's quick response.

It's our longest-running gag.

Some correspondents noticed that my posts have grown sparse.  It's nice to be missed.

I've been busy, is the easy reply.  But, then, we are all busy.  Truthfully, I've had this particular column stuck in my craw for almost two months.  Kind of like a hairball, but with sharp corners. Let me explain.
