Tuesday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People

Royal Commission: Yesterday brought the news that the federal government will launch a royal commission into child sexual abuse, examining not only religious organisations, but also sporting organisations, Scouts and Guides, schools and state institutions.  PM Julia Gillard said: ”It is appropriate for there to be a national response through a royal commission. This, I hope, will help with the healing.”  More here.  This week, an ex-teacher and Catholic brother were arrested over abuse allegations dating back two decades.

Peaches Geldof: Peaches is pregnant with her second child!  Baby Astala is just six months old, so she’s going to have her hands full when baby number two is born!  How lovely.  Read on here.

Spare Money:  ASIC is holding millions of dollars in unclaimed funds, and some of it might be YOURS! OMG.  You can nip over here and search for your name (or other family members names) and find out instantly if you can claim some spare cash.  Full story is here.  I hope there’s a nice surprise for you!

Missing Melbourne Women: One of the women reported missing in Melbourne over the weekend has been found safe and well.  The other, Sandra Pevitt is still missing.   Let’s hope she’s found safe and sound. It appears her bank account has been accessed, and she was seen shopping after she left her Werribee home.  Hoping this ends well.
