Wednesday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
The Block: I am missing The Block, hence I have to seek out news about The Block to fill the void that’s left in my life come 7pm each weeknight. Le sigh. Today’s blocky news is about the new season of The Block which was all set to start filming in Bondi. Unfortunately, local residents are not so thrilled about having The Block on their block. They’re worried about the traffic and the noise and the neighbourhood’s tone in general. They are objecting. You can read on here, but I think it would be a bit pesky to have cameras and construction at every turn. I get that. (Sorry that I chopped Dale’s head off in the above photo!)
The Block (again): Danny Wallis, new owner of the failed company Energy Watch is in hot water. You may know that he successfully bid on The Block brothers, Mike and Andrew’s house, securing the property for $1.4 million dollars. But Energy Watch creditors were NOT happy, especially when Energy Watch owes over $8 million dollars to creditors, $890 000 of which is unpaid employee entitlements. Ex-Energy Watch staff were miffed to see Mr Wallis and his lady friends sporting their Energy Watch t-shirts on screen and splashing cash about. More here.
The Carbon Tax: Despite the Opposition’s claims that the carbon tax will push up the price of groceries and other everyday goods, The ABC’s research finds that there’s been no impact at the supermarket as yet. They did a bit of a shop around the burbs and found that prices were unchanged and it was business as usual. More here.
