The applications were approved for Acceptance

The applications were approved for Acceptance of Registration of a Trademark on 25 June 2009 and 16 July 2009 respectively. An opposition notice was lodged by DSE in September 2009 and that opposition outcome is still pending a final decision by IPAustralia. HP Pavilion dv7-2043cl CPU Fan Media published the trademark applications which led to a dispute called an 'Opposition Notice'- IPAustralia History page [21] On 27 July 2010 the DSE applied for a new trademark TM1374402, Sam The Koala, in Class32 (beverages), Class33 (alcoholic beverages), HP Pavilion dv7-2130ev CPU Fan Class41 (education, training and cultural activities), Class43 (services for providing food and drink), and Class44 (veterinary services and hygienic and beauty care for animals),[22] however DSE Application TM1374402 was issued an "Adverse Report1" [23] on 27 August 2010. HP 608772-001 CPU Fan Koala retrovirus (KoRV) is a retrovirus that is present in many populations of koalas. It has been implicated as the agent of Koala Immune Deficiency Syndrome (KIDS), an AIDS-like immunodeficiency that leaves infected koalas more susceptible to infectious disease and cancers. Toshiba Satellite A100-194 CPU Fan The virus is thought to be a recently introduced exogenous virus that is also integrating into the koala genome (becoming endogenous). Thus the virus can transmit both horizontally (from animal to animal in the classic sense) andvertically (from parent to offspring as a gene). The horizontal modes of transmission are not well defined but are thought to require close contact. HP Pavilion tx1205/ CT CPU Fan Koala retrovirus was initially described as a novel endogenous retrovirus found within the koala genome and in tissues as freevirions. Viral DNA sequence analysis showed intact open reading frames and pathogenic DNA motifs strongly suggesting that KoRV is an active replicating endogenous virus that can also produce infectious virions. HP Pavilion dv6640ep CPU Fan The analysis also showed that KoRV was closely related to the highly pathogenic Gibbon Ape Leukemia Virus (GALV).[2] The epidemiology of how koalas and gibbons came to share such similar viruses remains unclear. The virus has been attributed to 80% of deaths in captive koalas in Queensland from leukaemia, COMPAQ Presario CQ42-401TU CPU Fan lymphoma, malignant tumours and immune deficiency disorders. In 2008, lead researcher Jon Hanger, said the virus was a threat that could lead to extinction of koalas in Queensland within 15 years, claiming 100% infection rates in studied populations that suggest an epidemic.[3] Research has also shown that some populations of koalas, Toshiba Satellite A300D CPU Fan particularly an isolated colony on Kangaroo Island do not appear to have the endogenous form of the retrovirus. This suggests that the virus gene sequence is a new acquisition for the koala genome. Prevalence of KoRV (and KIDS) in Australian koala populations suggests a trend spreading from the north down to the south of Australia. HP Pavilion dv8397ea CPU  Fan Northern populations are completely infected, while some southern populations (including Kangaroo Island) are free.[4] Prior to this 'koala retrovirus' was used to refer to an unidentified oncovirus detected in cancer-affected koalas.[5] It is thought that further studying KoRV will allow valuable insight into how endogenous retrovirus develop and incorporate themselves into mammalian genomes. HP Pavilion dv9821ea CPU Fan Although most of Australia is semi-arid or desert, it includes a diverse range of habitats from alpine heaths to tropical rainforests, and is recognised as amegadiverse country. The fungi typify that diversity; the total number that occur in Australia, including those not yet discovered, has been estimated at around 250,000 species, HP COMPAQ TC4200 CPU Fan of which roughly 5% have been described.[174] Because of the continent's great age, extremely variable weather patterns, and long-term geographic isolation, much of Australia's biota is unique and diverse. Approximately 85% of flowering plants, 84% of mammals, more than 45% of birds, and 89% of in-shore, temperate-zone fish are endemic.[175] SONY Vaio VGN-NW228F CPU Fan Australia has the greatest number of reptiles of any country, with 755 species. Australian forests are mostly made up of evergreen species, particularly eucalyptus trees in the less arid regions, wattlesreplace them in drier regions and deserts as the most dominant species.[177] Among well-known Australian animals are themonotremes (the platypus and echidna); HP G62-b16ST CPU Fan a host of marsupials, including the kangaroo, koala, and wombat, and birds such as theemu and the kookaburra.[177] Australia is home to many dangerous animals including some of the most venomous snakes in the world.[178] The dingo was introduced by Austronesian people who traded with Indigenous Australians around 3000 BCE.[179] HP 580696-001 CPU Fan Many animal and plant species became extinct soon after first human settlement,[180] including the Australian megafauna; others have disappeared since European settlement, among them the thylacine. Many of Australia's ecoregions, and the species within those regions, are threatened by human activities and introducedanimal, HP Pavilion dv6-3049tx CPU Fan chromistan, fungal and plant species.[183] The federal Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999is the legal framework for the protection of threatened species.[184] Numerous protected areas have been created under theNational Strategy for the Conservation of Australia's Biological Diversity to protect and preserve unique ecosystems;[ HP G42-380LA CPU Fan 65 wetlands are listed under the Ramsar Convention,[187] and 16 natural World Heritage Sites have been established.[188] Australia was ranked 51st of 163 countries in the world on the 2010 Environmental Performance Index.[189] Climate change has become an increasing concern in Australia in recent years, and protection of the environment is a major political issue.[ Toshiba Qosmio G30-167 CPU Fan In 2007, the First Rudd Government signed the instrument of ratification of the Kyoto Protocol. Nevertheless, Australia's carbon dioxide emissions per capita are among the highest in the world, lower than those of only a few other industrialised nations.[192] Rainfall in Australia has slightly increased over the past century, HP Pavilion dv7-1157cl CPU Fan both nationwide and for two quadrants of the nation,[193] According to the Bureau of Meteorology's 2011 Australian Climate Statement, Australia had lower than average temperatures in 2011 as a consequence of a La NiƱa weather pattern, however, "the country's 10-year average continues to demonstrate the rising trend in temperatures, Compaq Presario CQ40-408AX CPU Fan with 2002–2011 likely to rank in the top two warmest 10-year periods on record for Australia, at 0.52 °C above the long-term average".[194] Water restrictions are frequently in place in many regions and cities of Australia in response to chronic shortages due to urban population increases and localised drought.[ HP Mini 110-1110ET CPU Fan Throughout much of the continent, major flooding regularly follows extended periods of drought, flushing out inland river systems, overflowing dams and inundating large inland flood plains, as occurred throughout Eastern Australia in 2010, 2011 and 2012 after the 2000s Australian drought. HP Pavilion dv7-1157cl CPU Fan,HP Pavilion dv6-3163eo CPU Fan,HP Pavilion dv9740us CPU Fan
