Can Floodwaters Be Redirected to Inland Australia? #shorts

11 March 2022

Are we able to harness the water during times of rain and direct out to drier parts of the country? The new Bradfield scheme is a massive engineering proposal to divert flood water from the tropical north to the driest interior. The vision would see a series of dams, pipes and pumps divert flood water through inland Queensland and to South Australia, ending up in water storages, including like air. #shorts #floodmitigation #renewableenergy Check out the full video here: https://youtu.be/O8cXlDjcpIM Need a new office space?

Will Building More Dams Help Avoid Floods?

09 March 2022

Brisbane and other parts of South East Queensland, plus parts of New South Wales including Lismore and Sydney have flooded once again. **This video was written and filmed before the widespread flooding disaster had really engulfed a lot of New South Wales as well, so we only briefly touch on it. We are not trying to downplay the severity of the crisis down south by focusing on Brisbane and South East Queensland, it just hadn't happened yet quite as much as up here in Brisbane.*** After a rain bomb lingered over the city, delivering almost a year’s worth of rain in three days, the city was underwater. Boats and pontoons were washed down the mighty Brisbane river, roads became kayak courses and parks became raging torrents. Not to mention the countless number of homes and businesses that were inundated, causing extensive damage – and potentially more. Can we stop flooding events like this one from happening in the future. Are new dams like Wivenhoe Dam good flood mitigation measures? Are we able to redirect floodwaters from Queensland and up north, to inland areas of Australia where it's dry and often in drought? A plan like this has been proposed called the New Bradfield Scheme which would see a series of pipes and dams redirecting water to the middle of Australia. And in combination with that scheme, a project like Snowy Hydro 2.0 that generates hydroelectricity by recycling dam water could also be created, which could take damaging floodwaters away from populated areas and turn it into a clean, green, renewaable energy. There's a lot to unpack so come with me as we start talking tactics. #floods #floodmitigation #newbradfieldscheme 00:00 Introduction 00:52 A History of Brisbane's Floods 02:20 Flood Mitigation from Wivenhoe Dam 03:31 Should We Build More Dams? 04:12 The Bradfield Scheme and More Green Energy 06:20 Snowy Hydro 2.0 08:30 Conclusion Need a new office space?

How Will the War in Ukraine Affect Australia?

03 March 2022

Russia has launched a devastating, unprovoked attack on Ukraine with the sole purpose of destabilising the existing democratically elected government. With the world in a state of flux at the moment, especially the member states of NATO such as the United Kingdom and the United States of America, what are the repercussions for us over in Australia? What industries will take advantage of the changing dynamics? And how will businesses pivot and adapt to the circumstances?

Where Should I Buy a Property in Brisbane?

18 February 2022

Australia's property prices have exploded and Brisbane's property market is no exception. the city is experiencing exceptional uplift in residential home values. Are there still great buying opportunities out there? Where are they? How do you find them? Well, I think that the Brisbane's best suburb for buying a home is Seven Hills, in Brisbane's inner east. And i have six reasons why Seven Hills will outperform other areas of Brisbane in 2022 for capital growth. (And one of those reasons is that the suburb is high enough above sea level to avoid floods or flooding events!)

How To Buy This Ferrari

02 February 2022

Ferrari is a very well known luxury car manufacturer, and they make some of the fastest and most expensive vehicles that money can buy.

Escape Your Office... Because It Feels Like It's from The Matrix

23 December 2021

Your office space feels like it was designed to be inside The Matrix, and so does Michael's. He contacted Tactic Property about new space, but he also inquired with other "agents". Now it's a race against time for Michael to escape from his current, unsuitable office, with directions from Mel Pikos, before the other leasing agents can show him terrible office space options. Will Keanu Reeves as Neo show up to help him find the one... the one office space perfect for him. Or Trinity, or Morpheus or even Agent Smith? Is this the unreleased cut of The Matrix Resurrections? No, it's not, but I just wanted to make sure I wrote the name of that movie in the description of this video. Find out if Michael can escape his office... #thematrix #keanureeves #officespace Do you need a new office space?

The Brisbane 2032 Olympics Will Create South Bank 2.0 in West End | Talking Tactics with Mel Pikos

27 October 2021

South Bank 2.0 or the vision for it is getting closer to being realised, and the Brisbane Olympic Games in 2032 are helping it to get there. An industrial site in Kurilpa, an area near South Brisbane and West End, by the Brisbane River, has been earmarked for the International Broadcast Centre for the games and afterwards, plans are to redevelop the area into new parklands for Brisbane residents and tourists. Adrian Schrinner, the Lord Mayor of Brisbane, has confirmed that negotiations with the company that owns the land are progressing, and that their offer to buy the land had been well received. It's a perfect way to add to what was created at South Bank for Expo 88 - this will be South Bank 2.0, Schrinner said. This will be in line with the vision proposed in the Kurilpa Riverfront Renewal Draft Masterplan, released by the Brisbane City Council 2013. It will create parklands, retail, dining, commercial office space and increase river touch points. A number of key locations are earmarked throughout Brisbane for the Olympic Games, including the Gabba, Suncorp Stadium and various sites on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

Tesla Is a Trillion Dollar Company After Deal With Hertz | Talking Tactics with Mel Pikos

26 October 2021

Tesla and Hertz new partnership has made Elon Musk $29 billion personally, and the deal has pushed Tesla'a market cap over $1 trillion, making it the second fastest company to do so, after Facebook. It joins Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and Alphabet as other US companies to reach that trillion dollar milestone. Elon's personal wealth now exceeds $280 billion and he's leaving Jeff Bezos in the dust, with a paltry $193 billion. It looks like Tesla will help Elon Musk to become the world's first trillionaire. It helps that Tesla isn't just a car company, but a robotics, artificial intelligence and energy storage company. They are creating self driving vehicles, yes, but also the robots that make the robots at their Gigafactory (or Gigafactories), plus the Tesla Bot, a humanoid AI robot, and the Powerwall, a home energy battery and the world's biggest battery in South Australia. Tesla may not even be comparable to other car companies such as Mercedes, Toyota, Porsche, BMW, Volkswagen, because they're so much more than a car company. The Tesla shares, like the SpaceX rockets, are soaring to new heights making investors and shareholders very happy. Do you think it will last or will the valuation come crashing down again? #tesla #tsla #hertz For commercial leasing inquiries, visit http://www.tacticproperty.com/ Connect with us on our socials: Talking Tactics with Mel Pikos on Facebook Tactic Spaces on Facebook @mel_pikos on Twitter @melppikos on Instagram @melpikos on TikTok 00:00 Introduction 00:23 Tesla's Trillion Dollar Valuation 01:38 Is Tesla Just A Car Company? 03:19 Tesla's New Gigafactory and Robots 04:36 Batteries and Powerwalls 06:25 Buying a New Car 07:41 What Do You Think?
