Wednesday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton and Family: Were you watching TV yesterday when the Coroner tearfully announced the final verdict, that baby Azaria was taken by a dingo, in the final inquest into Azaria’s death? I started to sob, because what they’ve been through is unimaginable and the Coroner’s empathy spilled off the screen and into my lounge room. It has taken 32 years for the family to see justice served, and Lindy was beaming calmly after the verdict was announced, because of course she knew all along what had happened. You can read more about the family’s reaction to the verdict here.
NSW First Homebuyers: The NSW government has announced that the first homebuyers grant will be more than doubled from $7 000 to $15 000, but this boost will be offset by changes in stamp duty concessions for homes over $550 000.

Obesity: The Guardian features a piece on obesity and examines our diet since the mid seventies and why SUGAR is the main culprit in the rise of obesity. Starting with the development of High Fructose Corn Syrup (which was then tipped into every processed food-stuff you can imagine) and moving on to Low-Fat (high sugar!) products, the piece tracks the obesity epidemic and the cost to the UK’s health service (NHS). It discusses the idea (FACT?!) that food companies count on our sugar addiction and thus add sugar to everything to boost sales (at any cost, it would seem) and talks about legislating AGAINST unhealthy processed foods as an effective way of fighting obesity. Read on here.
