Australia and rental affordability 
Australian renters are paying through the roof. And it's hitting people in all income brackets. Low income earners are being squeezed by a shortage of public housing and middle to high income earners can't afford to buy houses so they're driving up rental prices and competing for the limited number of properties.
Peter Dutton 
Ashlynne McGhee explains what's happening in an explosive war of words which has erupted between Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton and his former border force chief Roman Quaedvlieg. Mr Quaedvlieg claims he was personally lobbied by Mr Dutton's staff to grant a visa to an Italian nanny. Mr Dutton says those claims are fabricated.
John Millman's US Open 
Today Australians learned that Queensland tennis pro John Millman is as classy in defeat as he is in victory. Earlier this week, the 29-year-old shocked the tennis word by knocking Roger Federer out of the US Open but today he couldn't face down another formidable opponent the tournament favourite Novak Djokovic.
James Ricketson 
The family of James Ricketson, an Australian filmmaker imprisoned in Cambodia for 'spying', is pleading for mercy. Ricketson has been in jail since the middle of 2017 and is now now applying to the Cambodian King for clemency
Natasha Walsh wins Whiteley scholarship
In 1959, a little-known 20-year-old artist named Brett Whiteley was awarded a scholarship to study and paint in Europe. It helped launch him onto the world stage. In memory of her son, the late Beryl Whiteley allocated funds for an annual scholarship to give other young Australian artists the same opportunity - and this year's winner is Natasha Walsh.
