Low wages
For years now, many Australians have been finding that the cost of living is rising faster than their pay packet. Despite working harder than ever, many people feel like it's impossible to get ahead. And the problem is now so serious that it's considered a major threat to the overall economy.
James Cook University
James Cook University is under fire for sacking one of its staff, Peter Ridd, after he allegedly made disrespectful remarks about some of his colleagues. And the university went through the climate sceptic's emails before they terminated his position.
Regional town's last bank closes
In the past year alone, there have been more than 150 branch closures by the big four. For some regional towns that can spell the end of their viability. Lauren Day visited one such place on the final day of business for the town's last remaining bank.
Australian leads global efforts to battle his own disease
Monkol Lek was a Cambodian refugee who came to Australia as a baby and developed muscular dystrophy as a young man. He now has his own lab at one of the world's leading universities where, through his work on the human genome, he's isolated the exact gene mutation which has caused his disease.
