Australia’s biggest city will remain in lockdown for at least another month

Australia's glorious and largest city Sydney will remain on lockdown until nearly September. According to the Associated Press, Australia is struggling right now with its own cluster that was found in June and appears to be the cause of a rise in cases. Right now, they've only risen by 177 in the past 24 hours but the locale government is scrambling to contain it before it spirals out of control. . It was the largest daily tally since the cluster was discovered in mid-June. "I am as upset and frustrated as all of you that we were not able to get the case numbers we would have liked at this point in time but that is the reality," New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian told reporters.

Australians can once again view the news on Facebook

Aussie 's can once again view the news on Facebook but it comes with a few drawbacks considering the local government appears to have caved. According to the New York Post, the Australian government and Facebook have come to a deal that has now resulted in news being restored. That deal however still gives Facebook the opportunity to suspend access to the news at any time. https://twitter.com/RepJimmyPanetta/status/1364253944629854208?s=20

Scott Morrison blasts Facebook as social network is told to leave if it won’t play by the law

As Facebook 's relentless crackdown on the news in AU continues today, AU Prime Minister Scott Morrison has slammed the social network for its nearly unheard of move. Facebook really just doesn't want to have to pay publishers for the news that makes parts of its network possible. MORRISON 's FULL STATEMENT: Facebook's actions to unfriend Australia today, cutting off essential information services on health and emergency services, were as arrogant as they were disappointing. I am in regular contact with the leaders of other nations on these issues. These actions will only confirm the concerns that an increasing number of countries are expressing about the behaviour of BigTech companies who think they are bigger than governments and that the rules should not apply to the...

Australia has a new law, and, it has people talking

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA --  Australian authorities launched a new law last night, and, it has the world talking due to the laws sudden results.   According to authorities, last night resulted in convicted child molesters losing their right to travel without authority from police.

This is why you should be very careful bodybuilding

Bodybuilding can be a great thing, especially, if one does it correctly. But, an Australian woman did it the opposite and learned her fate at the age of 25. PerthNow reports that Meegan Hefford had (in a sense) overdosed on bodybuiding chemicals and protein.  Australian authorities say that her death certificate even lists such, at least partially. But, what's interesting, is that Hefford was unaware that she had an actual disorder that caused her to be unable to intake that much protein at once.  Experts  in Australia are now warning of the dangers of being ill-informed about body-building and the proteins/chemicals that go along with it. Hefford died in June three days after initially being hospitalized and complaining of feeling "unusual".  According to the coroners office, she,  ...

This SOS message has people stumped in Australia

An SOS message found in the remote area of Australia, uh, has people taking.  Australian police confirmed to numerous outlets today that Australia's military and police force, perhaps, are quite stunned as to how it happened. Police officials authorised one official to speak to The Daily News who described the find as "eye brow raising" mostly because signs of life and a camping site were reportedly discovered. The issue? Even helicopter reinforcements to the reclusive island still couldn't turn up anything in the search. Police did confirm that an additional search with more eyeballs is underway as more signs of life are found. Although it has not yet been ruled out to be a hoax.

Is this the most horrifying child abduction of all-time?

Some say it's  one of the first child abductions ever to occur on planet earth that remained unsolved for much of the history of mankind.  50 years ago,  Australia, saw what would become one of the country's most horrifying incidents occur:  the abduction of the Beaumont Children. The Beaumont children disappeared from Australia 50 years ago while seemingly playing outside minding their own business.  On 26 January 1966, Jane; arnna, and Grant all were playing together outside on a warm day down under. The three children were seen by their post man, happily playing, without a care in the world. The postman saw no sign of  worry as the three children held hands, and, proceeded to play as they walked home together from a day on the beach. But, it would become the last and final time th...

Vanity Fair and THAT Margie Robbie profile

Vanity Fair may be a glossy  magazine, but, Vanity Fair apparently never learned what not to do in a celebrity profile. In its latest celeb profile,  VF published a looker on none other than Australian actress Margot Robbie -- whereas -- the goof behind the article decided to ignite fury down under after comparing Australian's to Americans. Rich Cohen, er, might be out of a job after this one. “They still live and die with the plot turns of soap operas in Melbourne and Perth, still dwell in a single mass market in Adelaide and Sydney,” and Robbie’s from Queensland, where “a dingo ­really will eat your baby.” But that wasn't it. "Australia: America 50 years ago; sunny and slow, a throwback". Via Vanity Fair
