Recently announced targets aim to improve the health and well-being of Indigenous people. But if that’s to happen, we need to provide health advice suitable for First Nations Australians. That includes providing dietary advice, and acknowledging the difficulties some face in recommended by official dietary guidelines. If we don’t, this will put Indigenous Australians at even higher risk of illness from a poor diet, worsening existing disadvantage.

Review: Paul Kelly: The Man, the Music and Life in Between (Hatchette). Stuart Coupe’s new biography of Paul Kelly takes many known elements of Kelly’s story and rouses them again. reads the way a Paul Kelly cover version sounds: familiar, but also a bit disorienting. Old school music fans might go to the liner notes first – in this case the back cover and acknowledgements. Both detail the insights Coupe has drawn from others: hundreds of interviews, including Kelly himself and over 80 people thanked in the acknowledgements. Hachette. It’s a who’s who of Australian music from the last few decades – Archie Roach, Kasey Chambers, Kev Carmody, Vika and Linda Bull and Neil Finn – but not too many younger voices. Coupe’s emphasis is on how Kelly b.

National Library of Australia. Most people probably associate the Australian Alps with skiing and snow. Others might think of the Man from Snowy River legend or the engineering feats of the Snowy Hydro-Electric Scheme. But few people know the region’s history of exploitation and overuse, nor the courage of those who fought to save this precious wilderness area. A new book, , tells that important story. The result, by authors Deirdre Slattery and Graeme L. Worboys, is a positive yet cautionary tale. Today, the park is largely protected – yet threats such as ski tourism, feral horses and the Snowy 2.0 scheme still loom. And climate change has left the region highly vulnerable, as shown by declining snow depths and a massive bushfire that tore

Dave Hunt/AAP. In the early stages of COVID-19, much of the - who study populations - has understandably been on mortality and morbidity.

Sony Pictures. Phil: What would you do if you were stuck in one place, and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered? Stage 4 lockdown is upon Melbourne for the next six weeks. How do we cope with the new normal of staying in our houses for 23 hours a day? One popular solution is to immerse ourselves in stories. Topical films, such as (2011), have found a in the pandemic. But a more prescient film, for lockdown, is the cult classic (1993), directed by Harold Ramis. Phil Connors (Bill Murray), a thoroughly unsavoury TV weatherman, mysteriously wakes up to the same wintry February morning over and over again. His wonder and excitement at the lack of consequences quickly turn to despair. How can a flawed human deal with

We’ve heard a lot about what the present crisis will do to , less about what it will do to prices. Commercial properties include office buildings, shopping centres, hotels and warehouses. They account for of the assets of Australian super funds. Melbourne’s Wesley Place commercial precinct is owned by a property trust. If their values drop (and they are falling) it will affect all of us, especially those about to retire or already retired.

The Conversation 08/05/2020 15:58 With COVID-19 vaccine developers reporting , it is probable we will one day face a major public health question: can the government compel New Zealanders to be vaccinated? Just as inevitably, some people will refuse a vaccine. As we have seen overseas with debates over the wearing of masks, and more generally with anti-vaccination activists everywhere, compulsion is not a simple matter. There are competing rights and duties on both sides. Forcing an individual to be vaccinated is a violation of their fundamental right to personal autonomy, which informs the more specific right to bodily integrity. Basically, those rights mean every person can make decisions for themselves and what can and cannot be done to their bodies.

Shutterstock. Under the first coronavirus lockdowns, in Australia, with much of it done in and near the watchers’ own backyards. And as Melbourne settles into stage 4 restrictions, we’ll likely see this rise again. The increase in backyard birding is good news for conservation and birds recover from bushfires and other environmental catastrophes. But backyard birding isn’t new, nor is its alliance with conservation. Read more:. Since the turn of the 20th century, when birdwatching as a hobby began in Australia, birders have cherished the birds in their backyards as much as those in outback wilds. Birdwatchers admired wild birds anywhere, for one of their big motivations was — and is — to experience and conserve the wild near home. Pioneering

The present landscape near Dongshen, China. Wan et al. ,. Author provided. Far beneath the city of Dongshen in northern China, we have discovered what may be the 2 billion-year-old birthmarks of Earth’s first supercontinent. An ancient dipping structure in the planet’s crust appears to be a trace of an early collision between two continental masses like the one that created the Himalaya – and may record the origin of the global system of plate tectonics that persists today.

Workers remove the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Richmond, Virginia on July 8, 2020. The U.S. is engaged in a national debate about how to deal with monuments to Confederate leaders, enslavers and other historical figures with complex, and often racist, histories. As a scholar and practitioner of organizational communication, I often find myself in the middle of similarly protracted conflicts, working to get people with very different views to resolve their differences. A key step in that process is for each person to confront the fact that even people who disagree with them are, in fact, fellow humans inherently worthy of dignity and respect. Often, people seek clear decisions and quick action in response to disturbing feeli.

Scott Morrison will unveil on Thursday a cyber security package to give greater protection to critical Australian infrastructure and bolster the powers of the Australian Federal Police to pursue criminal networks on the dark web. The Australian Signals Directorate would be able to go into networks to block operations against critical infrastructure. The AFP would be given collection powers on the dark web which would enable it to call on the ASD to provide highly specialised technical assistance, using its most sophisticated capabilities. The government would hope to have legislation for the changes passed before the end of the year, although that timetable will be tight given the limited sitting time. Amid increasing concern about cyber di.

Will young, Black Americans turn out to vote in November? Most political analysts define "" as those who swing their support from one party to the other between election cycles – determining winners and losers in the process. According to this conventional wisdom, the "swingiest" voters are in the Midwest, who supposedly hold the . Meanwhile, by contrast, pundits often portray Black Americans as an undifferentiated mass – loyal Democrat-supporting foot soldiers who will execute their mission for The Team on Tuesday as long as some on Sunday.

Buddhist monks pass packs of water after their devotees donated water to a temple in Bangkok. The offering of food and material goods to monks is an essential part of the daily practice of Buddhism in Thailand. The belief is that through the act of giving, lay Buddhists – followers of the faith who have not been ordained – receive, or make, merit. This making of merit is believed to negate the effect of past evils in the giver’s present life, as well as the next. Scholars call this the “Buddhist moral economy,” or economy of merit. . Lay Buddhists make merit in many ways, donating time, goods and money, depending on their circumstances.
