  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - Restoring Australia's cultural ambition
    • Abstract: Anatolitis, Esther
      Last week's Australia Council shortlisting of organisational funding applications was always going to be bad news. Even for organisations who've made it through to the next round.

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - India embraces 'might is right' in Kashmir move
    • Abstract: Toohey, Brian
      The Morrison government is keen to stress how India and Australia share 'common values' - the subtext being that the same can't be said about Australia and China. But common values have vanished in India, as highlighted by its blunt use of military force to crush the semi-autonomous state of Jamma and Kashmir.

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - The secretive business of detention dirty work
    • Abstract: Mundell, Meg
      If you're not burdened by a conscience, it's a perfect get-rich-quick scheme: offer 'garrison' services to governments reluctant to get their hands dirty. Ensure the vulnerable people you 'manage' are hidden away, and demonised by bigoted politicians and right-wing commentators. Hire cheap labour, minimise your tax, and make millions.

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - Death and drones in the Mediterranean
    • Abstract: Wadi, Ramona
      Since former US President Barack Obama's tenure, drone warfare has become the preferred option for governments wanting to engage in aggression while limiting scrutiny. This detachment has allowed governments to perfect inhumane tactics - whether drones are used for bombing or surveillance. The EU's purportedly peace-building agenda is finding drone surveillance a useful tool to support its anti-migrant stance.

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - Can weather presenters be climate saviours'
    • Abstract: Foyster, Gerg
      After warmer waters bleached the Great Barrier Reef in 2016, two well-known Australians went snorkelling to see the corals for themselves, and they published Facebook posts about it. Scientist Tim Flannery emerged from the ocean off Port Douglas and told the camera he'd seen 'complete devastation'. Pauline Hanson, snorkelling off Great Keppel Island much further south, told her audience 'the Great Barrier Reef is alive and well'.

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - Tears in store after Hong Kong chaos
    • Abstract: Kelly, Michael
      There's hardly a media outlet around the world not reporting the chaos unfolding in Hong Kong. Details and depth of coverage may vary in quality. But the extent and reach of the chaos are beyond dispute and without precedent in the former British colony.

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - Religious freedom can't Trump student health
    • Abstract: Troy, Stevie
      In April 2019, while the Australian Law Reform Commission began investigating the minefield that is discrimination versus religious freedom, I went to get my routine pap smear. While Christian organisations lobbied to protect their freedom, I was called back. 'Stevie, unfortunately you've had an abnormal pap. You have HPV 18, with high grade cervical cell abnormalities. Did you get the Gardasil vaccine in high school''

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - Hiroshima and transfiguration
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew
      In the Catholic calendar the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing and the Feast of the Transfiguration occur on the same day. The conjunction illuminates both events. One, recalling the revelation of Jesus' relationship to God, is a feast of light; the other, recalling man's inhumanity to man, speaks of darkness. Both are pointers to possible human futures - one of glory and the other of annihilation. The history of nuclear weapons and recent developments present this choice even more starkly.

      This week Prime Minister Scott Morrison joins other Pacific leaders for a summit in Tuvalu. There, in addition to climate change and other matters, he will be challenged by his counterparts to address the issue of human rights violations in West Papua.

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - Ovarian transplant pitch demonises menopause
    • Abstract: Galloway, Kate
      Recent headlines in The Guardian proclaimed that 'a new medical procedure could delay menopause by 20 years'. The procedure involves surgically removing ovarian tissue from a woman while she is young and preserving it cryogenically. When the woman is older, the tissue can be surgically re-implanted. Consequently, the young and revived tissue will produce and release the hormones necessary to delay menopause.

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - Power in Rebellion's civil disobedience
    • Abstract: Bowler, Jacinta
      You either love what they're doing or you hate them - Extinction Rebellion is not shying away from polarising the public. They have been shutting down city streets, creating chaos, and getting themselves arrested - all to highlight the climate emergency. In the last few weeks we've seen a huge ramp up in the group, and with that comes more opinions on their actions.

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - Keys to closing the education gap
    • Abstract: Dillon, Anthony
      When discussing Aboriginal affairs and how to close the gap, there are many disagreements, but there seems to be strong agreement that education is crucial. Aboriginal leader, and former Minister of the Crown in the Northern Territory, Bess Nungarrayi Price, has stated: 'Education belongs to all of us ... We can use education to take responsibility for our problems and find our own solutions.'

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - Women still fighting for territory in unequal AFL
    • Abstract: Riley, Erin
      As we approach the fourth season of the AFLW, the future of the competition seems secure. The competition, which wildly outperformed expectations from its very first game, has been a boon for the AFL. The gains for the clubs involved and the organising body have been significant, yet gains for the players have lagged behind - at least in material terms.

  • Volume 29 Issue 16 - To be or not to be PC
    • Abstract: Schetzer, Alana
      The term 'politically correct' has been weaponised not just to land a blow against foes but to shut down debate altogether. To be 'politically correct', critics say, is to be more concerned with being seen to do the right thing than to actually do it; to be more attuned to feelings than facts, and to be almost allergic to 'common sense'.

This was an increase from last year, when the total amount not spent on disabled people hit $2.5 billion. This is getting worse, not better.

We paused as a mob of kangaroos bounded through the trees. When I thought they'd all passed, we continued on our way.

  • Volume 29 Issue 19 - My September of grief
    • Abstract: Richardson, Katherine
      Before that first September, my experience with grief was fairly limited. I had lost an uncle when I was very little, and I was sad, but it was mostly because I didn't like seeing my mother cry. I had loved and lost a plethora of small fluffy animals, each one breaking my heart when it left this world, but my parents were able to sew it back together when they placed the next soft bundle in my arms. So while I was no stranger to death, I hadn't yet felt the type of grief that makes you ache in places you never realised sadness could reach. My first experience with this was September 2014.

    • Abstract: Tredinnick, Mark
      Two plane trees near the front gate of the Lu Xun Academy in Beijing are coming into leaf. When I ask what she would call these trees, one young woman studying here tells me 'white poplars'. A family of azure-winged magpies is at play in them this morning, their wings first cousin of the early spring sky. I know them as plane trees - Eastern Plane trees (Platanus Orientalis), a quick Baidu search tells me. Endemic to northeastern China. But I have known them all my life.

      Over the summer the Guardian published a conversation between US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg. They talked about a lot of things, but the part that really leapt out was an exchange about hope. 'What keeps you going'' Ocasio-Cortez asks Thunberg. 'Given how daunting the issue is, why aren't you so filled with despair that you're staying on your couch every day, and just waiting for the apocalypse''

    • Abstract: James, David
      To paraphrase Frank Zappa, capitalism isn't dead, it just smells funny. The point is easy enough to demonstrate. The cost of capital, the prevailing interest rate, is, as one commentator quipped, about to hit 5000 year lows. The 'capital' element in 'capitalism' is in trouble.

    • Abstract: Bouras, Gillian
      Raised by Politically Pink Parents, I was in my youth rather wary and suspicious of capitalism and capitalists. My parents' ideas about the greed and exploitative tendencies of the latter group were reinforced by news reports about the big spenders of the day such as the flamboyant Lady Docker who, when asked why her favourite Daimler (she had five) was upholstered with zebra skin, nonchalantly replied that mink was too hot to sit on.

    • Abstract: Falzon, John
      The idea that you can aspire to have more is a relatively new one. In fact I would suggest that it only really came into its own in Europe with the dawn of capitalism. Under feudalism you accepted the position in society that had been determined by god. It was futile to want to be a lord, for example, if you were born a serf. It was also blasphemous because to question the socio-economic order was to question the wisdom of god. And there was to be none of that, thank you!

The child is the youngest daughter of a Tamil family who until recently were living in the Queensland country town of Biloela. The case will be fully considered later but it raises complex issues regarding the statutory bars preventing asylum seekers from even making any application at all, and the exercise of the ministerial discretion to lift that bar.

This is especially true when we look at the temporal and spatial challenges: it's urgent and huge but we're slow and small.

Our society's increasingly visual culture, he reasoned, makes it hard for us to come to grips with an abstract, long-term problem like climate change.

      In 1956, a team of American psychologists published 'When Prophecy Fails', on the response by a group of UFO cultists to the non-appearance of a promised flying saucer. The researchers chronicled how the failure of predictions did not lead to the cult's collapse. On the contrary, after a brief period of confusion, the members readjusted their beliefs and became even more fervent in proselytising their faith. The book comes to mind these days as the environmental crisis increasingly confounds the assertions of sceptics.

If you'd been casually scrolling through Facebook or listening to news headlines, you'd have absolutely believed him.

Those acquainted with the administration of juvenile justice in Australia will find nothing new in the report. Therein lies its scandal.

      The types of arguments against the existence of human-made climate change range from the uninformed to the misinformed; from urban myths, to cherry-picking information in order to form a more palatable narrative.

  • Volume 29 Issue 15 - Remember Hiroshima as US nixes treaties
    • Abstract: Smith, Tony
      The announcement that the USA was withdrawing from treaties limiting the nuclear arms race is a cause for concern. It may feel justified in doing this because Russia has apparently not honoured its commitments. If Russia has been at fault, then this most likely reflects weaknesses in the compliance mechanisms rather than the treaty is unworkable.

  • Volume 29 Issue 15 - Plenary council rocket science a matter of trust
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew
      Politicians vying for office and churches planning plenary councils sing from the same handbooks. As with rocket launches, where the early stage rockets fall away leaving the manned capsule to go into orbit, political parties put great time and energy into the preparation of policies, running focus groups, and attracting good candidates. When the election campaign begins they drop these activities. Candidates cross the nation offering goodies, shooting down rivals and trying to get the party across the line. The election won, the trimmed ship of state sails on unencumbered.

  • Volume 29 Issue 15 - Look to Finland for housing solutions
    • Abstract: Halse, Dustin
      This week is Homelessness Week and it gives us an opportunity to pause and reflect upon the circumstances of some of the most vulnerable individuals within our society. It also affords us a moment to consider what more we can do to overcome what has been dubbed a 'national disgrace' by numerous social welfare agencies.

  • Volume 29 Issue 15 - El Paso shooting and the rise of eco-fascism
    • Abstract: Sparrow, Jeff
      'There is no conservatism without nature, there is no nationalism without environmentalism.' Not surprisingly, many people took that line from the Christchurch killer's manifesto as another piece of rhetorical flummery in a document stitched together by an unstable criminal.

  • Volume 29 Issue 15 - The politics of domestic labour
    • Abstract: Heath, Nicola
      In Australia, caregiving and domestic labour are typically considered women's work. As the most recent HILDA survey shows, women continue to do more housework and childcare than men, regardless of their domestic arrangement. It also showed that women are more likely to work part-time when they have children, while men continue to work as they did before.

  • Volume 29 Issue 15 - The thief, the party and WikiLeaks
    • Abstract: Kampmark, Binoy
      The Democratic National Committee in the United States has never quite gotten over the 2016 hack of its servers that yielded emails subsequently published by WikiLeaks. For one, it showed a less than rosy picture of Democratic strategy, one aimed at marginalising and ultimately defeating Hillary Clinton's main challenger, Bernie Sanders. The power of the Clinton machine, laid bare, was exploited with relentlessness by an ultimately victorious Donald Trump.

  • Volume 29 Issue 15 - Combating crime by restoring relationships
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew; Rosaia, Madison
      When devising policies for people on the margins of society - people in the justice system, Indigenous people, refugees and unemployed for example - Australian governments seem always to settle on measures that are punitive and counterproductive. Memories of Port Arthur, the poorhouse and the hulks seem to exercise an abiding fascination. Certainly, the way we imagine the world has a strong influence on policy.

  • Volume 29 Issue 15 - Father Page versus the Bolsheviks
    • Abstract: Brodie, Nick
      This year marks the centenary anniversary of British forces landing in Russia to fight the Bolsheviks. Now, Russia is generally agreed to be interfering in liberal democracies around the globe. A Jesuit priest serving as a chaplain to the British forces helps illuminate this oft-neglected story, and reveals a bit of how the Church was adapting to those troubled times.
