Parliament of Queensland

Post by ggamgus on Sun Jan 06, 2013 2:21 am

Here goes mah first update here! Very Happy

-----

SimSports Update #1

Brisbane, Queensland Capital District






The Parliament of Queensland is a bicameral parliament, consisting of two houses. The upper house, the Senate, has 96 senators from 10 states and two autonomous territories. The lower house, the House of Representatives, has 89 representatives from the said 10 states and the autonomous territories. The number of representatives in each state is determined by population, unlike the Senate.

The Parliament House was completed in 1891 to serve as the seat of the government of Queensland. After the federal government of Queensland was established in 1903, the Senate was formed to provide equal representative power to all of the states and territories, regardless of population (similar to the Australian Senate formed in 1900, and the United States Senate).

The Liberal National Party of Queensland, the main centre-right party in the nation, is the majority in both houses, and the current premier is the leader of the party. The Queensland Labor Party, on the other hand, the main centre-left party, and the largest Queenslander party to be a member of Socialist International, is the minority and currently has negligible power in the government.


Thanks for viewing!

Skyscrapers to Sand Surfers

Post by ggamgus on Sat Jan 12, 2013 1:42 pm

SimSports Update #2

Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast




The city of Gold Coast, with nearly six hundred thousand inhabitants, is the second largest city in the nation. Gold Coast will host the Super Sunday games in January 2013, and the Commonwealth Games in 2018. Due to its proximity to the southeastern border of Queensland, a number of Australian towns and communities fall under the city's sphere of influence.

Thanks for viewing!

QANZAC Cove Landing

Post by ggamgus on Sat Jan 19, 2013 2:54 pm

Hi, guys! There's a special update this week! I decided that, every once in a while, I'd make history lessons on Queensland. Razz The history of Queensland and the historical impact of Queensland on the world. Very Happy

As I promised, we will travel to another continent today, and I also managed to tie this entry to Queensland. *double win* Razz

---

Our first historical event takes place in the midst of World War I, on a 60-kilometre-long strait between Europe and Asia.

In 1915, the United Kingdom and France planned to attack the Dardanelles in northwestern Turkey. It was expected that this attack would inflict major damage upon the Ottoman Empire.

The first attack, on 19 February, in which HMS Queen Elizabeth attacked and destroyed Turkish equipment along the strait, was a success. It seemed that the strait would be taken very soon. The second naval attack began almost one month later. On 18 March, a number of French and British ships attacked the strait. Unfortunately for the Triple Entente, this attack was a failure.



The damaged French warship, Bouvet, struck a mine and exploded. In less than two minutes, it sank with over six hundred French sailors.



Following Bouvet, the British battleship HMS Irresistible also hit a mine, and exploded. Then, it was attacked by Turkish artillery and guns.
HMS Irresistible sank in the same area as Bouvet.



HMS Ocean was dispatched to assist HMS Irresistible. However, HMS Ocean became another casualty after hitting a mine itself.

The 18 March attack was a disaster for the UK and France. The last intelligence report involving the strait had reported that the area was safe of mines. Though, not known to the British, the Turkish minelayer ship Nusret had placed mines there only 10 days before the attack.

As a result of the failed attack, the Allied forces decided to launch a major land attack in the Dardanelles. The Queenslander, Australian, and New Zealander Army Corps, QANZAC, would land in the peninsula of Gallipoli from three battleships and seven destroyers. This would take place on the night of 25 April.



QANZAC forces landed with heavy casualties, but managed to complete the amphibious invasion successfully. Today, QANZAC's landing area is known as the QANZAC Cove.
By 28 April, the invasion was complete, and defence forces from the United Kingdom, British India, New Zealand, Queensland, and Australia were present on the peninsula. Even after landing, the forces had much difficulty, as they were under attack from Turkish forces and had very little information about the topography of the peninsula.



Both sides attacked one another with artillery and guns. The casualties were similar in number, as both sides had relatively the same technology and did not have major advantages over the other.



Thousands were dead or injured, and much destruction had taken place. But it was only the beginning.

Off to the North

Post by ggamgus on Sat Jan 26, 2013 4:00 pm

SimSports Update #3

Cairns, Far North State




The city of Cairns is one of the largest communities, by population, in the state of Far North (it is also the state capital). Before this month's same-sex marriage bill in the Queensland Parliament, Far North, after a vote in the Parliament of Far North State in Cairns, was the first state to adopt same-sex marriage rights.

The city of Cairns is now building a modern business district in the heart of the city. When completed, a number of high-rise apartments and offices will be in this district.

Cairns was ranked by several magasines and newspapers as the most livable city in Queensland, and is now competing against a number of cities for the title of AIN's Most Livable City.


Thanks for viewing!

Commentary: I know what you're thinking. And the answer is, yes, I have lost my mind. Razz The horizontal mosaic, the second picture, was actually a recreation attempt. Though, the first picture was pure imagination. Razz (The SpongeBob characters were just a random idea...)
