A Bit About Me

296 University academic and researcher into positive approaches to men's health, particularly Indigenous male health (Australia) based on a social model, rather than merely a bio-medical model of health.

My doctoral work was a text-based exploration of survival among Australians on the Burma side of the Burma-Siam Railway during World War Two.

I am interested in Health 2.0 (web-based social interactions relating to health education and community participation) and the moral geographies of 'property' as it relates to the distribution, sharing/control and use of resources required to support healthy persons and populations.

A former radiotelegrapher and electronics technician, I am a seven year veteran of the US Navy.

I have been married to the same person for more than three decades; we have three adult children who are all artists and reasonably sane.

The user name (Durtal) is a literary allusion that reveals a great deal about me.


A Haunting Thought

"The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." John Philpot Curran (Dublin, 1750-1817), in a speech to the Privy Council on 10 July 1790.


A Humorous Thought (or, two)

There is more than one way to @verb a cat.

If the front door is locked, they've probably left the back door wide open.

An Exploratory List of Texts for Public Health Text/Data Mining

(Clustered in potential order of introduction to subject for teaching & research purposes; more traditional Perl texts to be listed later. Please note that I am no expert in this area. As a department head, I am upgrading my own skill sets in preparation for proposing a major redeployment of our teaching and research programs over the next three years to get them more thoroughly into the 21st Century. This is just one area of concern.)

Cluster A

Nota bene: Unfortunately, the above text is not Perl oriented. "Will noone rid me of this pesky Python?", | "Why sssssshouldn't we esssspect a Sssssspanith Inquithissssion?", | "Why hasn't Father Guido Sarducci exposed the 'pretender' in L'Osservatore Romano?" {Apologies to Saint Thomas A'Beckett, and the writers of Monty Python & (Saturday Night Live | Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, if you are old enough to remember it!)}
