Even so, there are probably few living Americans who ever witnessed anything that quite compares with . Was it really the case that the nation could do no better than a verbal food fight, with two candidates hurling fourth-grade insults and talking past each other?

Earlier this year, we started constructing a data set that consists of all of the viewer comments on YouTube videos posted by four television networks – MSNBC, CNN, Fox Ne.

Lukas Coch/AAP. The Morrison government has made its first appointments to the High Court. In doing so it has gone for continuity, both in terms of geography and gender. The news Justices Jacqueline Gleeson and Simon Steward will be Australia’s follows months of speculation. With the upcoming retirements of Justices and — as they reach the constitutionally prescribed retirement age of 70 — two vacancies had opened up on the High Court bench. Read more:. Although it might be true that many Australians outside of the legal profession do not know who their judges are, as in 2017, this lack of celebrity status certainly does not diminish the significance of these appointments.

Amazon Studios, Four by Two Films. It’s January 20th, 2021. Inauguration day. A triumphant Joe Biden salutes the National Mall crowd (way bigger than the last guy’s) and dedicates his victory to Sacha Baron Cohen, aka Borat, the satirical mastermind who delivered the knock-out blow to Trumpism. Released on Amazon Prime Video in the shadow of the looming U.S. election, is a wet firecracker of an October Surprise. Cohen reprises his role of the smiley, Jew-hating journalist from Kazakhstan, a real country no American ever seems to have heard of. His latest mission: bribe someone close to Trump with the gift of his 15-year-old daughter (played by brilliant newcomer Maria Bakalova).

Among the women taken off a Qatar Airways flight for Sydney for the searches – which extended to passengers on 10 flights – were 13 Australians.

A re-imagined production of Thornton Wilder's Our Town was cancelled five days before opening. Anne-Louise Sarks. There was a time when artists imagined and planned work for 2020. For some, years had gone into the planning. But, as we know, everything scheduled from the middle of March had to be cancelled. Some events may be scheduled again at another time; many will no longer happen. A group of artists have put together a map of the abandoned artistic projects for 2020. Conceived by artist Anna Tregloan and named , it is a treasury of lost work and a time capsule of what we missed out on this year due to the pandemic. There are already over 150 shows and events listed. More projects are being added all the time. The Impossible Project captu.

National Archives of Australia. This is an edited extract from by Jenny Hocking. It was cold, mid-winter in Canberra, when I returned to the National Archives in mid-2019 searching for more documents, scouring through the accession records for Sir John Kerr’s papers, where, I told myself, even the most obscure files might turn up something important, something I had never imagined. And then, quite suddenly, one of them did. As I waited for the High Court to consider my application for special leave, a file containing letters between Kerr and the queen’s private secretary after Kerr had left office landed in my inbox. I had requested this file, with the arresting title “Buckingham Palace”, eight years earlier, after which it had disappeared i.

We will remember 2020 as a year of crisis. COVID-19 hit Australia just as we were beginning to make sense of the horror bushfires and smoke of last summer, a sinister illustration of global warming’s threats. Since then, the news media has given centre stage to COVID-19 and its cascading impacts on society, shifting climate change to a relatively minor role in our narrative of this year’s crises. So, have Australians forgotten about the urgency of climate change? No. Polling released today by shows climate change and its impacts remain a prominent concern to Australians, even amid the upheaval and uncertainty wrought by COVID-19. The majority of Australians (57%) experienced some form of direct impact from last summer’s bushfires or smoke.

They matter to the MPs, ministers and senior public servants concerned. But aside from what the tea leaves might imply for national electoral politics, they cast few ripples. This year is different. State governments matter now, in ways they have not for decades. Expect a Labor victory. This does not mean the Queensland election will produce any shocks. On the contrary.

People often roll their eyes when they hear about a major Hollywood studio re-releasing a film from its back catalogue to cinemas. Director’s cuts, “reduxes” and remastered prints can seem like cynical corporate moves, re-commodifying a long dead vision of the world. But in the case of Paul Verhoeven’s — a masterpiece of late 20th century Hollywood cinema, being — this cynicism is unwarranted. As someone born in the 1980s, who was too young to watch this extremely violent film on its cinematic release, I am excited by the prospect of finally being able to see it on the big screen. Not to mention several of its iconic images: Arnold Schwarzenegger pulling a giant tracking device out of his nose, eyeballs popping out of faces on Mars and the

Working mothers get something in the budget, but not much, and not for long. Before the budget the second earner in a couple with young children (usually the mother) lost almost all of the income she made working for the second, third, forth and fifth days per week.
