Elections
The Federal Speaker has announced five by-elections will be held on the 28th of July to replace MPs who were forced to step aside. But the date has enraged Labor because the party has its national conference on that same day. Laura Tingle discusses what it means.
Shark Bite
Biologist Matthew Vickers was on a research trip with James Cook University in January when a two-metre shark nearly tore his arm off. It's left him and others wondering how protected students and volunteers are when they venture into the wild.
Almanac Offers
It was long thought the sort of folk magic practised in Europe didn't make it to Australia, but the country's old buildings are telling a different tale. Evidence is mounting that early settlers and convicts brought their superstitions with them.
Lethal Opioids
Investigations around the country have found officers emptying vials of the potent painkiller Fentanyl and switching them out for saline, or worse still, tap water. In NSW, where the problem is at its worst, the ambulance commissioner has ordered for a state-wide investigation into drug protocols and random drug-safe audit.
