Australia's gig economy
The convenience of ordering a ride in an Uber or takeaway food through a mobile phone app has made it part of everyday life these days. It has caused a major shakeup for businesses and workers in transport and food delivery. But gig work has also been labelled a serious threat to traditional employment and the wages and conditions that come with it.

Australian golfer Jarrod Lyle has died of acute myeloid leukaemia aged just 36. Fellow professional, Greg Chalmers remembers his friend.
Is Britain ready to go it alone with no Brexit deal?
The Brexit clock is ticking and the predictions about what life might be like outside the EU are becoming more alarming. The trade secretary has predicted there's now an odds on chance that the UK will crash out of the union with no deal at all. And there's been talk of food shortages and the army being put on standby.
The race to save our Tassie Devils
About 80 per cent of them have been wiped out by a transmittable cancer but there's now not enough genetic diversity in the 20 per cent left to keep the species going. And that means their low birth rate is also threatening their survival.

Press Freedom Recently there's been a lot of talk in the media about the media! Earlier this month the house of a News Corp journalist and the offices of the ABC were raided by the Australia Federal Police. They were investigating possible crimes that they said were committed when people gave secret information to journalists. But some say the raids are a bad thing for freedom of the press. We look at what press freedom is, why it's important and why its sometimes controversial. Aboriginal Flag Debate Last week there was some debate about the Aboriginal flag and who should be able to use it. It came after the AFL and several companies were asked to stop selling clothing with the flag on it. We look at the history of the flag and who has the right to sell its image and why. Refugee Week Thursday is World Refugee Day, which is dedicated to raising awareness of the millions of people who have to leave their homes because of war, persecution or disaster. We find out more about what it means to be a refugee and meet a family who came to Australia as refugees. Gender and Sport A female footy player in South Australia has been given a six-week ban after she filled in a local men's team. It got many asking whether women should be allowed to compete alongside men in Aussie Rules and other games. Bigfoot Last week there was big news about ... Bigfoot! For decades there have been stories about the famous hairy creature, and some swear they've seen it roaming around forests in the US. But last week Bigfoot was dealt a big blow when the FBI released new information about its own hunt for Sasquatch. We find out more about Bigfoot and some other mythical creatures around the world.
