Monday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
PM Julia Gillard: The Prime Minister has announced that the Federal Government will pledge an additional $1 billion to fund increased pay for workers in the community and social service sector. These workers were due a pay increase in December, and this extra injection will bring a total of around $3 billion to the sector.
Prime Minister Gillard : ”Every day they’re hard at work, leading teams of counselling professionals, taking charge of homes for homeless men and the mentally ill, running women’s refuges, disability support centres and family support services,” she said. ”Put simply, Australia cannot ever be a fair nation without the efforts of these workers.” More here.
Sia: Do you love Sia. Gosh I do. In Sia news, she’s partnered with Will Smith’s daughter Willow, and the pair are working on a song called ‘I Am Me’ together. Naw. That’s a bit adorable. Read on here.
Facebook: If you are a criminal using Facebook chat to do shifty deals involving lots of swearing, be warned, Facebook is monitoring private chat using ‘smart’ software and flags suspicious exchanges, passing them on to Police. So don’t do that. Facebook is watching. And even if they weren’t, still don’t do that, okay? More here.
