Pint of Science Coordinator for Armidale, Mr Dane Lyddiard, said the international festival was a great way to inspire, spark conversation and help connect Australians with their local scientists and their research.

Plus local upcoming researchers from UNE presenting on topics ranging from biomedical science to chemistry to rural sciences.
Tickets are $5. For further information and tickets, visit at http://www.pintofscience.com.au]]>
Glen Turner was investigating illegal land clearing when he was murdered, and since his death we have seen the NSW Government throw out the Native Vegetation Act and replace it with legislation that will allow even greater broadscale land clearing to occur, much as it has in Queensland.
This film offers an insight into what large farming concerns and agribusiness see as the future and it does not include responsible land management and conservation of the natural environment. It reveals the pressure of recent rapid expansion in agribusiness as the laws protecting the environment are weakened across Australia.
The killer, Ian Turnbull, a wealthy NSW rural producer, had previously been prosecuted for illegal land clearing. During the murder trial Turnbull pleaded not guilty on the grounds of “substantial impairment” claiming the Office of Environment and Heritage was bankrupting his family agribusiness, and as a result, he was suffering acute depression. In court, both claims were were shown to be untrue. Ian Turnbull (82) died on Monday 27th March in Hospital while serving a 35 year sentence for the murder of Glen Turner.
