Darwin forms part of the Northern Territory with a population of around 245,000. The economy is highly concentrated on petroleum, and energy producing minerals. With the number of developments undertaken during the recent years, tourism is becoming a major pole of the economy. The city of Darwin is currently undergoing a fast expanding infrastructural development and is setting the necessary bases to become a major pole in the port industry especially in shipping and freight industries. The strategic position of Darwin linking Australia and Asia is a major driver for the current and future development of the City. The economy is benefiting from these development and the GRP amounts to $22 million. The expansion and modernization of the city is a source of job creation and the set up of the University 50 years age, is contributing in the high standard of living of the population.

With the INPEXLNG processing plant, Darwin is positioning itself as a strategic international hub for Liquid Natural Gas (LNG). With a population of around 245,000, the development of this industry is an economic and social challenge for Darwin. It is expected that there will be a mix of positive and negative impact. In 2008, INPEX Corp showed interest in building and operating an LNG plant near Darwin and this will involve the extraction of natural gas from the offshore of North West of Australia and piping it sub sea to be redirected to a processing plant that will be located in Darwin. In 2012, the necessary infrastructures and the plant was set up in Darwin. The Government welcomed this project and described it as a driver of economic prosperity for Darwin. The plant production capacity was estimated to be more than 3 million tonnes per year and LNG will be sold to Tokyo electric and Tokyo Gas based on a long term deal.

...Macro analysis The macro analysis describe the environmental factors of Australia with six steps. These steps could be defined as DEPEST; demographic factors, economical factors, political factors, ecological factors, social-cultural factors and technological factors. Demographics (1+2) Australia is one of the biggest countries in the world. Australia’s estimated resident population at June 2013 was 23,062,985. This is an increase of 1,12% over the previous year. Natural increase and oversea migration seem to be the most important factors for this increase. With this increase, Western Australia was the fastest growing part (2,2%) and the Nothern part the slowest (0.4%). The population of Australia if mainly concentrated in urban areas in the south-east and east. The major cities of Australia in 2012, according to the population, are: - Sydney: 4.667 million - Melbourne: 4.246 million - Brisbane: 2.189 million - Perth: 1.897 million - Canberra (capital): 411,609 Population facts The median age of the Australia’s population in 2012 was 37.9 years, with an average of 37.1 years for male and 38.6 years for women. In 1990, the median age was 32.1 years, so it could be expected that population ageing is projected to have significant implications for Australia over the next several decades. The median age of Australia’s population is expected to continue, with between 38.7 and 40.7 years in 2026 to between 41.9 and 45.2 years in 2056. As a consequence,......

...Land and Climate Area (sq. mi.): 2,988,902 Area (sq. km.): 7,741,220 Australia is the sixth largest country in the world. It is just smaller than Brazil and about four-and-a-half times the size of the U.S. state of Alaska. Australia is the only country that occupies a complete continent. It is also the driest inhabited continent in the world. About one-third of its land is desert and another third is composed of poor-quality land. A long chain of mountains, the Great Dividing Range, runs along the Pacific coast. Fertile farmland lies east of the Great Dividing Range, in the southwestern corner of Western Australia, and in the island state of Tasmania. Cattle stations (ranches) reach the edge of the barren interior desert. The famed Australian Outback is an undefined region that encompasses all remote, undeveloped areas. The Outback is seen as a mystical heartland or frontier—a symbol of Australia's strength and independence—where the climate is hot, life is hard, and people are tough, independent, and few.

...Australia- by A.D Hope (Alec Derwent Hope) A.D. Hope was born in 1907, cooma, New South Wales, Australia was an Australian poet and essayist known for his satirical slant. He was also a critic, teacher and academic. Hope began publishing poems when he was 14 years old and also was educated in Australia and at the University of Oxford. His first book of poem “the wandering Islands” appeared in 1955 and followed by several volumes of new poems and collected poems. He was appointed an officer of the order of the British Empire in 1972 and a companion of the order f Australia in 1981 and awarded many other honors. A.D. hope is an Australian poet. Australian poets write about aborigines (native Australians) and about their identity in their poems. The poem Australia talks about the present condition of Australia. The poem is written in an ABBA rhyme scheme, which adds a gentle, easy-going flow to the poem. According to the poet Australia was once a land of tress, but today it is full of war and soldiers. The hills of Australia are now dark and broken like lion statue of Egypt. And the poet mention that other people call Australia as a young country in the second stanza. But the poet does not agree with them because for him Australia is the “last of lands”. Poet refers “her” to Australia. Australia has a long history. Then the poet compares between Australia and a women. He talks about the changes of a women throughout life and compares it with Australia. So as a whole he is......

...One place I have always dreamed of visiting and living is Australia. Whenever I see Australia on TV everything looks beautiful. The people seem very friendly and warm. Culturally it seems like a good fit for me because the people are pretty easy going and so am I. The country is made up very similar to us in its people according to http://www.indexmundi.com/ a few positives for me is that the infant mortality rate is lower and the life expectancy is a little higher in Australia. One big note is the obesity rate is 26% amongst adults versus 33% in the US. 0 Financially the country is very stable. Their GDP is 999 billion and their 5 year growth rate is 2.5. The unemployment rate is 5.6% which is not too different then the US. The countries prominent religion is Protestant at 28% followed by Catholic at 25% in the U.S it is protestant at 58% and Catholic at 23%. So it seems more people in Australia have a defined religion than in the U.S. Liberal Party leader Tony Abbott was elected prime minister following his coalition’s victory in national election in 2013. Like Australia, the United States has a system of government that enshrines the idea of indirect democracy. Like Australia, the American system is based on principles of political equality, majority rule and the preservation of minority rights. The United States is the oldest continuing democracy in the world today and one of the first to embrace the idea of popular sovereignty. However, it is relatively unique......

It is one of the world’s most urbanised countries, with about 70 per cent of the population living in the 10 largest cities. Most of the population is concentrated along the eastern seaboard and the south-eastern corner of the continent. Australia’s lifestyle reflects its mainly Western origins, but Australia is also a multicultural society which has been enriched by nearly five million settlers from almost 200 nations. Four out of 10 Australians are migrants or the first-generation children of migrants, half of them from non-English speaking backgrounds. In 1991-92, East Asia contributed 41 per cent of settler arrivals. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people totalled 265 378 at the last census, nearly 1.5 per cent of the population. Two thirds of the indigenous people live in towns and cities. Many others live in rural and remote areas, and some still have a......

The Exportation of U.S. Lng

...The Exportation of U.S. LNG: An Abundance of Shale and Construction of New Export Terminals Section 1: Introduction The shale boom experienced by the United States since the mid-2000s ushered in unprecedented production and reserves estimates of oil and gas in the lower 48 states. This sustained supply and production has been a result of technological advancement, particularly improved techniques in hydraulic fracturing, has kept prices for natural gas extremely low while crude oil prices have fluctuated and changed over time. One reason for this is the different nature of exportation in the two hydrocarbons. As will be discussed below, the transportation and exporting of natural gas is much different than for crude oil. Natural gas must undergo a liquefaction process in order to travel by specialized cargo ship, the alternative to a pipeline, which adds substantial costs to the activity. There are currently no operational natural gas export terminals in the lower 48 states, but a few are under construction. The large sunk costs will be a large part of our consideration of the exportation of natural gas. The U.S. has traditionally been a net importer of gas, and considering the high upfront costs of building export terminals, the sale of American gas has been isolated almost exclusively to the domestic market. The only exception to this has been to export natural gas only where existing pipelines can carry it, which has limited foreign export to North America....

...A) The per capita GDP of Australia is $40,000. In comparison to other countries, Australia ranks nineteenth. The unemployment rate is currently at 5.6% which is ranked fiftieth in the world, when compared to other countries. Finally, the inflation rate is at 1.8%, which is down for the 4.4% it was in 2008. Australia’s inflation rate is ranked at sixty-fourth in the world. B) The top exports of Australia are coal, iron ore, and sheep. In 2009, Australia exported $245.9 billion worth of exports and it is predicted that in 2010-2011 Australia will export about $169.8 billion worth of goods in the energy category alone. It is the world’s largest exporter of coal. C) Similar to the United States, the currency of Australia is in dollars, but these dollars are different from U.S. currency dollars. On September 1, 1003, the exchange rate of Australian dollars to U.S. dollars is .65. This means that the equivalent of one Australian dollar is equal to .65 U.S. dollars or sixty-five cents. Just a few short years later on September 1, 2005 the exchange rate from Australian dollars to U.S. dollars was at .75. The Australian dollar slightly increased in value since 2003. After another couple years, on September 1, 1007 the exchange rate of Australian dollars to U.S. dollars was up to .82. Finally on September 1, 2009 the exchange rate was at .84. Given these number, it shows that in comparison to U.S. dollars the Australian dollar has increased in value in every year since...

INTRODUCTION Women are the inherent part of our society and it cannot be neglected due to their less power and authority .They are created as a companion for men and men have to make her walk with them in their course of life. In my society ,women play the role as a mother ,a sister ,and a wife. They play the roles with great responsibilities in upbringing of a healthy solid society ,but she is in our so-called modern world ,still living in chains. This essay will discuss ways in which a role of women in the development is very important in the society that we live in. To begin with,the basic unit of society is a woman .As a woman makes a family, family makes a home and home makes a society. We all know that without education, no development is possible .Therefore we have forgotten that the very first and best school of a child is its mother’s lap. A good healthy society doesn’t automatically emerge on its own or stands firm but it need to emerge and for its emergence, women play a pivotal role. From behavioral to health education women have their hands in, it’s a woman who teaches how to speak and how to deal with different kinds of people .These are the basic of a good society and women are......

...How you would recognize the difference in societal culture of Australia from other countries? The basic rules of Australian social etiquette do not relate to how a fork should be held, or who should be served first at a dinner table. Instead, most of Australia's rules relate to expressing equality. Basically, as long as you appreciate that Australians want to be treated as equal irrespective of their social, racial or financial background, anything is acceptable. Displays of wealth may be seen as signs of superiority and frowned upon accordingly. Likewise, the acceptance of generosity may be seen as a sign of bludging or inferiority and may be frowned upon Egalitarianism In myth, Australia is a country where people are assessed on the content of their character rather than the colour of their skin, economic background or job.  A salient example of the myth can be seen in Melbourne's Section 8 bar. Located in an alley in the middle of Melbourne's CBD, Section 8 uses packing crates as seats. The toilets are made out of shipping containers and the bar is just enclosed with a fence. Section 8 attracts rich businessmen, Japanese tourists, struggling artists and even homeless people. It is deliberately designed to be unpretentious. As a result, it attracts people from all walks of life that want to mingle with someone different from themselves.

...Australia (i/əˈstreɪljə/ ə-STRAYL-yə [10] or /ɒˈstreɪlɪə/[11] or /ɒˈstreɪljə/ o-STRAYL-yə), officially the Commonwealth of Australia,[12] is a country in the Southern Hemisphere comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.[N 4] It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area. Neighbouring countries include Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north; the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east. For at least 40,000 years[14] before European settlement in the late 18th century, Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians,[15] who belonged to one or more of roughly 250 language groups.[16][17] After discovery by Dutch explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the continent was explored and an additional five self-governing Crown Colonies were established. On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Since Federation, Australia has maintained a stable liberal democratic political system that functions as a federal parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy. The federation comprises six states and several territories. The population of 22.7 million [5] is heavily......
