Tattoo Parlours Act 2013

Tattoo Parlours Act 2013 is an anti-gang, anti-crime act of the Parliament of Queensland to establish a regulatory framework, including occupational licensing, for the tattoo industry in Queensland, Australia. The associated Acts enacted on the same date were the Criminal Law Amendment Act 2013 and the Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment Act 2013; the Acts were passed on 16 October 2013, as of 17 October 2013, the Attorney-General of Queensland had indicated that they had received Royal Assent. The rest of this Act was to commence "on a day fixed by proclamation." The relevant Minister is required to review the Act after 3 years. The Act places restrictions on who can hold a permit, including a requirement that the holder must be an Australian citizen over the age of 18, must not be a "controlled person" as defined by Criminal Organisation Act 2009, it requires permit applicants to provide finger prints and palm prints. The Act amends the Liquor Act 1992, in particular to prohibit patrons from wearing or displaying material associated with criminal motor cycle gangs, such as club jackets, while in liquor licensed premises.

It amends the Police Powers and Responsibilities Act 2000 to expand the use of detection dogs in tattoo parlours from drug detection to include explosives detection.

The Crew (comics)

The Crew was a comic book series published by Marvel Comics in 2003. The series was cancelled with its seventh issue; the series was written by Christopher Priest, illustrated by Joe Bennett. The Crew takes place in the No Man's Land between the streets of Little Mogadishu and those of the exclusive gated community of Princeton Walk in Brooklyn, NY. Princeton Walk was developed by multimillion-dollar investments and tax incentives to Grace & Tumbalt, a black-owned corporation, who cleaned up a section of Brooklyn and moved the criminal element and the poverty line residents out. Jim Rhodes War Machine but now down on his luck, came to Little Mogadishu to look into the murder of his estranged sister, when it became apparent that the police were not going to get any results, he took the matter into his own hands, he delivered the men responsible for his sister's murder to the police in a neatly tied up package for them, coming across the local Muslim preacher Josiah X along the way. However, this was not enough to satisfy Rhodey, he set his sights on the 66 Bridges leader, Triage.

His covert, vigilante action and contact with Josiah put him on Kasper Cole's radar, making Kasper suspicious of what a guy like Rhodey was doing in a place like the Mog. Rhodey hit Little Mogadishu like a force of nature, derailing the secret money train that delivered bribes in bulk to a large number of corrupt officials; this action drew in Junta, who smelled opportunity to leverage his way back into the spy business if he could get a piece of the action. He found himself drafted into Rhodey's plan along with Kasper Cole and a reluctant Josiah X. Together, the Crew blackmailed a long list of corrupt officials to turn in evidence against 66 Bridges and Triage and went after Triage directly; as Triage was no lightweight, the situation got messy and some of the Crew had to decide between their self-interests and being heroes. For Josiah, the decision to do the right was instant. Junta reluctantly turned Triage into the authorities, blowing his chance to use Triage to get back in with his former bosses.

Kasper Cole kept busy saving lives as the White Tiger, sacrificing his chance to get in on the big bust as Kasper Cole and further his police career. The Crew did not remain together after this event. Rhodey soon went back to being War Machine, Josiah was said to have disappeared. Little Mogadishu, or The Mog as the locals call it, is a side effect of the gentrification process, that displaced criminal and poverty elements who are now concentrated in a war zone outside Princeton Walk's walls; the Crew was to be about family. According to Christopher Priest's pitch, the Crew was about four hardened heroes who had all lost their families. Four men who came together out of self-interest, but would soon discover their commonality of loss; the Crew were all, in another, orphans. These men were intensely dedicated to their respective goals; the Crew would have highlighted each man's personal evolution to their state of grace. The seven stories that were released before the book's cancellation were, for the most part, introductory pieces breaking down the lives of each member, his personal pain and the universe he lived in.

The bulk of the first arc, Big Trouble In Little Mogadishu, was focused on the origin of Josiah X, son of Isaiah Bradley from Truth: Red, White & Black. The writer Christopher Priest intended that Josiah would lead the team. While many of the characters in The Crew were represented by minority races in the United States, Christopher Priest chose not to center The Crew around race relations. So I find myself having to say, more than what The Crew is; the Crew is not The Black Avengers. The Crew is not "A Ghetto Book"; the Crew is not remotely about race. Race is never mentioned in The Crew, it is a complete non-issue. Following Black Panther's gathering of evidence of outside influences fueling dissent in Wakanda, T'Challa called on Luke Cage, Misty Knight and Manifold. Luke Cage described the formation as "The Crew." Black Panther - T'Challa, King of Wakanda, member of the Avengers Eden Fesi Luke Cage - Luke Cage Misty Knight Storm - Ororo Monroe and member of the X-Men Junta - Daniel "Danny" Vincent, freelance intelligence agent and con man.

Justice - Josiah "Josiah X" Bradley, son of Isaiah Bradley the black Captain America. Kasper Cole - Kevin "Kasper" Cole, the White Tiger is heir in waiting to the Black Panther. War Machine - Jim Rhodes, friend of Iron Man. Truth: Red, White & Black Crew at the Marvel Universe wiki The Crew by Christopher Priest

People always say our stuff is dark, bugged-out, but I think this one will catch people by surprise. Beats in general made us write different, he uses more breakbeats, slower BPMs, so you'll be able to hear that."In 2013, Grayskul released Zenith on Fake Four Inc.

Enzso

ENZSO was an orchestral project started by former Split Enz keyboardist Eddie Rayner. It combines the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra with contemporary pop singers to perform Split Enz songs; the project began with Eddie Rayner. He wanted something more from the old Split Enz songs, doing orchestral arrangements seemed perfect. Creating the arrangements on his synthesiser, with help from Dave Woodcock, Eddie approached Mark Keyworth of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra to ask the orchestra to play his arrangements. With conductor Peter Scholes, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Dave Dobbyn, Annie Crummer, Sam Hunt, Neil Finn, Tim Finn and the New Zealand Youth Choir, they recorded and released their first album in 1996 titled ENZSO. Again in 1999 ENZSO recorded a second album titled ENZSO 2. A film of the collaboration was made by director Justin Pemberton called ENZSO: Dirty Creature.
