The SAJC hosts a regular "business
series" lunch at its Tapestry Pavilion
alongside the mounting yard at
Morphettville Racecourse. Last week's
guest on the Irish Race day Thursday
was Dermott Brereton. While we
appreciated being the guest of one
of Adelaide's top PR firms, we didn't
appreciate the backhanded comments
about our paper from SAJC chairman
David Peacock. Other media and guests
also complained that the 250 guests
had no access to betting facilities in
the pavilion. The promo video was poor
quality and way too long. I've been to
better functions at a country footy club.
The day and night facades of Hindley
Street are as different as could be. Next
Wednesday a group of local retailers,
restaurateurs and art galleries will
make a valiant attempt to blend them
together. East Hindley businesses will
trade late and offer specials on food,
clothes and other produce to celebrate
the opening of the Fringe's dedicated
art gallery called "Trigger". The idea,
said Magazine Art Gallery director
Joshua Fanning, is to "encourage a
bridge between daytime and night time
Is it the neighbours?
Adelaide people are more likely to
move house than any other State
capital city residents according to
RPData. Analysing "hold periods" - the
time between sales expressed in
years -- RP's figures show Melbourne
and Sydney home-owners tend to
stay an average of nine to nine and a
half years while Adelaide's average is
just six and a half years. A suburb by
suburb breakdown shows residents
of Collinswood (10.2) Wayville (9.3)
Woodville (9.2) Hawthorn and West
Lakes (9.1) are most stable.

Innovate SA runs introductory
workshops for innovative technology
companies seeking to explore and
expand into the US market and
supports them to succeed. One of the
attendees this week was Spring Gully --
a third generation family company that
started in 1946 when Edward McKee
started bottling and selling pickled
onions. That's vision for you.
"In South Australia, you
have a growing level of Chinese
investment, you have a strong trade
relationship with China and so it
was a better concept to develop a
campus here than try to replicate
those advantages in London.
"In 2010, universities play an
important role in the reality of a
geopolitical globe. That s why we
are here and why we are here to
David Travers, based in Adelaide
as the chief executive of the UCL
School of Energy and Resources,
said the relationship had already
become well developed.
"Adelaide is becoming a
university city and it has been
a great opportunity to use
that environment along with
collaboration with industry and
government," he said.
"Although Adelaide-based the
campus is being used as a hub for
graduate students in the region.
"Half of the students are from
South Australia, the remainder
come from Singapore, Korea, PNG,
the US, Romania and Russia."
David explained that the
connections between Adelaide and
UCL go way back -- back further
than the time of colonisation.
"George Grote and Henry
Brougham were involved as
founders of University College of
London, under the guidance and
inspiration of internationalist
Jeremy Bentham and as our street
names attest, they were also part
of the founding and development
of South Australia under the
Wakefield Plan," he said.
"What you see as a consistent
thread between these
connections is the commitment to

UCL is also conscious of its

communities, especially in South
On July 8, 2008, a group of
from the Murray River lead a
small workshop at UCL in London
discussing issues around the
repatriation of ancestral remains.
On May 14, 2009 the repatriation
of Australian Indigenous human
remains (which had been held
at UCL since their transfer from
a Cheshire auction house) was
completed when South Australians
Major Sumner and
George Trevorrow collected
the remains and held smoking
ceremonies to mark the occasion.
"It was very moving, very
emotional," Professor Worton said.
"In our discussions we discovered
that there were many similarities
between some of the archetypical
components of our respective
cultures. The barriers were not as
big as we had thought."
While in Adelaide Professor
Worton has completed meetings
with all three local universities on
collaboration projects as well as
starting discussions with the SA
Museum and Art Gallery on other
"The entire Adelaide concept is a
very important project for us and as
it is our first campus away from our
home we have a huge reputational
risk at stake," he said.
"For us to fail in this venture
would be devastating."
