Liberals advance to Deakin as mail-in vote count continues

Deakin looks increasingly hard to win for Labor as postal votes go in favor of Michael Soukkar. This means they would have to win Macnamara or Gilmore to form a majority government.

Big pickup for Sukkar in #Deakin on posts, now back to 887 ahead. It would take big counting corrections for Labor to get back to it now.

Linda Burney on the Uluru declaration, the treaty and the search for consensus

Incoming Minister of Indigenous Affairs Linda Burney has a long list of priorities when she is sworn in this week, but chief among them is embarking on the unfinished “nation-building project” of the Heart Uluru Declaration.

So no pressure. Burney says the election adrenaline has worn off and she now feels like she’s been “hit by a truck.” As the first Indigenous woman to hold federal cabinet office, she says, “I feel both exhilarated and discouraged. In fact, I have a very long experience in the area of ​​aboriginal affairs. So I feel ready to take up the challenge.

Australia’s Covid deaths on the rise

Covid-19 deaths are on the rise again with Australia’s record 88 death over the weekend and 363 over the past seven days, reports the AAP.

In contrast, daily toll reports in April only exceeded 50 once and were often below 25.

Victoria recorded 16 deaths on Sunday, Western Australia seven, NSW four, Queensland two and Tasmania one.

The number of active virus cases in Australia remains higher 300,000 and there are more 2,700 recovering patients in hospitals across the country.

Authorities have again extended emergency powers in Tasmania, where nearly a third of the state has been diagnosed with Covid-19 and there have been nearly 60 deaths this year.

Meanwhile, one of Australia’s leading charities says the pandemic’s effect on children’s education is not over.

A Smith family A survey found that one in two parents and guardians believe the pandemic is still making it difficult for their children to learn, while three-quarters are worried about their future school work and have struggled to help them during the pandemic. Two-thirds say the virus has made going back to school difficult this year.

Late Friday, Cannon-Brookes wrote to the outgoing president:

As your largest shareholder, we are most exposed to the decisions and actions taken by the Board of Directors and management regarding AGL’s future economic performance.

We continue to believe that shareholders’ interests are best served by keeping AGL together. There is a bright future for a combined LGA to fund an accelerated transition to renewables, create jobs and ensure electricity prices remain as low as possible. We are therefore looking for two candidates for Grok Ventures on the board of AGL.

We intend to engage directly with you and your fellow AGL directors regarding board and management renewal. We want to ensure that AGL has the talent, capital, capabilities and oversight to seize the opportunity presented by decarbonization.

Un adolescent accusé de meurtre pour avoir poignardé NSW

En Nouvelle-Galles du Sud, un adolescent a été accusé de meurtre après la mort d’un jeune et la blessure d’une autre personne sur la côte nord hier.

Les services d’urgence ont été appelés dans un restaurant fast-food de Casino vers 17 h 10 hier, répondant à des informations faisant état d’une bagarre.

Des agents se sont rendus avec NSW Ambulance et ont trouvé des jeunes blessés par arme blanche.

Un garçon de 17 ans est décédé sur les lieux, tandis qu’un homme de 18 ans a été emmené à l’hôpital de Lismore Base pour y être soigné. Il y reste dans un état stable.

Après enquête, un adolescent, également âgé de 17 ans, a été arrêté au Casino, inculpé de meurtre, de blessures imprudentes et de rixe.

Il s’agit d’un tableau frappant et d’une réprimande ferme de toute comparaison de Covid avec des maladies respiratoires plus bénignes.

Il y a eu 6 197 décès dus au COVID-19 jusqu’à présent cette année. Comment cela se compare-t-il avec d’autres maladies?

Le graphique ci-dessous montre les décès hebdomadaires par COVID, par rapport aux autres maladies (moyenne 2015-2021).

Le cancer est le plus grand tueur en 🇦🇺. COVID (en 2022) a été 2e, les maladies cardiaques 3e.

Lorsqu’on lui a demandé pourquoi il n’avait pas l’air “sur la lune”, Robert a répondu :

je suis définitivement [happy] with that…super happy with the party room and management team we bring.

As for the Nationals, Robert said “we’ll wait and see” what they do.

They ran a great campaign. Held their seats to their credit. David Littleproud is an excellent colleague of mine from Queensland. I wish them all the best for the future.

“Do you think David Littleproud will be the leader? he was pushed.

I think it will be close.
