  • Alice in Wonderland at 150: Why fantasy stories about girls transcend time

    Alice in Wonderland at 150: Why fantasy stories about girls transcend time

    Itís 150 years since an Oxford mathematics don published the most important work of childrenís literature and one of the most influential books of all time.

    The origins of Aliceís Adventures in Wonderland in a story that Charles Dodgson told 10-year-old Alice Liddell and her two sisters while rowing along the Thames in 1862 are well known. What is less understood is why it has become such an enduring cultural touchstone across the globe.

    Many popular stories can be distilled...

  • Making waves: the tsunami risk in Australia

    Making waves: the tsunami risk in Australia

    Australians are well versed in the homegrown natural hazards that we encounter every year, from bushfires in summer to storms in winter, cyclones up north and flooding along our rivers.

    But we donít often stop to consider the threat posed by tsunamis. Should we?

    Tsunamis are essentially a series of waves in the ocean. Where regular waves are caused by wind, tsunamis are caused by the large-scale vertical displacement of the water column.

  • Grattan on Friday: Twenty years on, the Perils of Pauline haunt another Liberal leader

    The election for the Senate hasnít ended well. To have four senators from One Nation in the upper house is worse than unfortunate.

    If Malcolm Turnbull had not called a double dissolution, but settled for a normal half Senate election, Pauline Hanson would probably have been elected but not with three other One Nation candidates.

    The potential sway of Nick Xenophonís Team (NXT) received much attention before the election but it has secured one less Senate place than Hansonís...

    40 Thieves Official Opening

    Middle Eastern delights with a difference

    Last night saw the official opening 40 Thieves Middle Eastern restaurant. It has joined a bunch of refreshed spaces down near the Acland/Carlisle Streets intersection.

    After months of renovating the space and a soft opening, owners Ali and Michael have fully styled and added a special touch to what is now a very welcoming venue. Arriving last night we were offered a glass of champagne and some sumptuous snacks prepared to thei...

  • Can humanity sink any lower? - A commentary

    Can humanity sink any lower? - A commentary

    This is the value that the jihadist terrorists really put on life, and the values they teach their children! Sydney jihadist Khaled Sharrouf's son ó a child, 7, raised in the suburbs of Sydney ó struggles with both arms to hold up the decapitated head. This raises barbarism to a level that is both beyond belief, and is beyond crimes against humanity. Until Arab nations raise their voices against this type of action, their silence will be taken as consent. It makes no difference to how much ...

  • Cream of The Crate: Album # 198 - John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band

    Cream of The Crate: Album # 198 - John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band

    "The reality of Plastic Ono Band is that it contains eleven of Lennon’s most accessible and gorgeous melodies and riffs." (Gerry Mullholand - BBC review 2010)
    "An album that will be as much analysed as Sgt. Pepper over the years." (Billboard - 1971)
    "
    It remains one of the most audacious, iconoclastic albums in all of rock and roll." (Guitar World 2016)
    "
    The album certainly shows that he had yet to work through many unresolved matters, and that he still had much anger...

  • 100 Greatest Australian , what are the 100 greatest singles of the 1960's?Singles of the 60's - An Exclusive Preview

    So, what are the 100 greatest Australian singles of the 1960's?

    Some consider the 1960's as possibly the halcyon years for Australian music. The groups were fresh, the music great, the performance venues many and radio stations revelled in playing Australian music. There were just so many great artists and great tracks laid down, and some of the very best were released on that wonderful media of the times - the vinyl 45 rpm discs.

  • WHEN WORLD'S COLLIDE

    WHEN WORLD'S COLLIDE

    My husband Alan went to a posh English boarding school Stowe in Buckinghamshire. I went to a state school on the rural/urban fringe of Sydney.

    Stowe school was the Duke of Buckingham's country residence and he built a similar looking residence in London, you probably know it as Buckingham Palace. Stowe's 250 acres of landscaped gardens were designed by 'Capability' Brown and are now maintained by UK's National Trust.

    Stowe has produced some of our global leaders from
