What university (or universities) are in Brisban? My aunt is going to be guest lecturing there for a couple of weeks this summer, but none of us who have spoken to her recently remember if she said which one.

Don't worry about misspelling our city's names. We know education is poor in New Hamshire.

"E" was silent here... Oh CD -- ask your aunt not to travel alone or late near the Universities... seems unsafe these days for some kids to make easy money and bad publicity.... :idea:

Good on yer Ish, let's assume the press are completely accurate and not blowing a molehill up to resemble a mountain. Seems India has a lot of trouble with terrorists and filthy beggars, better avoid it?

Oh Yes!!! Dont know why the terrorists are in love with us... maybe some cannot see India becoming a super power in years to come and the begging business in India was left by our former colonial rulers... I think they should now move to robbing and stabbing students now... seems like a better option these days for quick money... hmmm ..

Good one mate :)

I think Indians are the most racist people in the world... on the other hand some people steal the spot light....

Anyways - I believe that the current global crisis is responsible for these attacks... its an easy way out and I'm sure that these kids would be partying hard or show offs... so they get bounced... but got tad carried away to the extremes..

From what I've seen, a lot of these Indian students have an attitude which guarantee's ill feeling. Personally, I'd opt for a simple "F#$k off idiot" since stabbing seems a bit cowardly. I'm sorry to say Australia's youth are becoming increasingly cowardly,and resorting to increased levels of group violence or sneak attacks to compensate.
Mind you, when I have to deal with an Indian call centre, I'm moved to thoughts of automatic weapons.

I would agree with you on the call center... some yes.... but I also exp. some exceptional service - What I know as I have worked for one that was for BT as Quality analyst some years back.... they are made to work like machines .... really pressurised job.... and some customers also play really hard... You should watch a movie called "Outsourced" will definately like it....
