Sex with child OK in Victoria if married
28/05/2014 04:00:00

    The Victorian government is under pressure to scrap an antiquated legal loophole that states an adult can lawfully have sex with a child as young as 12 so long as they are married. Islamic activist group Hizb ut-Tahrir rediscovered the old law following a recent alleged “child bride” case in NSW, and is claiming that in Victoria it would not have been a crime. Victorian Attorney-General Robert Clark insists the federal Marriage Act overrides the state law, since it generally only allows and recognises marriage for couples aged over 18, and in some cases where th...

Aboriginal's and Racism in Australia
30/03/2014 16:00:00

Australian society is made up of a wide variety of groups. These groups of people have different cultural traditions and economic and social background. The success of the communication and interacting of these groups depends largely on the attitudes, values, and behaviour of people towards different groups.
Racism is probably the first form of discrimination we think of. It is the belief that some races of people are inferior to other ‘races’. Racism usually involves negative acts against the group of people considered inferior. Genocide is the deliberate extermination of ...

28/03/2014 10:45:00

The UN has ordered the release of the 50 asylum seekers within the week and required Australia to pay them compensation. 'One man drank ble...

Rosberg wins in Melbourne, with two new faces on the podium
18/03/2014 16:30:00

Nico Rosberg swept into the lead of the race on the first lap and never looked back, taking a dominant victory by over twenty seconds. The German driver took advantage of reliability issues that hampered his team-mate and pole-sitter Lewis Hamilton, taking the chequered flag well clear of Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo and McLaren's Kevin Magnussen. But Ricciardo's joy at finishing in second place in his home grand prix was to be short-lived, as he was disqualified after breaching fuel consumption rules. McLaren lead the constructors' championship after week one, as Jenson Button was reinsta...

The ten shilling note, issued on the order of the NSW Governor in 1817 by the Bank of New South Wales (now Westpac) on the day the bank opened, is expected to attract bids from investors and collectors around the world. “We have put a conservative estimate of a quarter of a million dollars on it in the catalogue,” said Jim Noble of Noble Numismatics. “But there has been such excitement over its condition, rarity and major historical significance t...

Knit a penguin sweater to help them survive
08/03/2014 16:30:00

    A call has gone out to knitters in every corner of the globe: We need sweaters! For penguins. That's right, tiny sweaters with 1.5 inch flipper openings are needed for Australia's 30,000 strong little penguin population. The penguin foundation says the sweaters ('jumpers' in Australia) are not a fashion statement, but are essential for penguins affected by oil pollution. Penguins caught in oil spills need the little jumpers to keep warm and to stop them from trying to clean the toxic oil off with their beaks. Knitter Lyn Blom is the receptionist at Phillip Island Nature ...
