Living Wage Last week there was a lot of talk about wages after Labor announced that, if it’s elected, it will raise the minimum wage and try to bring in a living wage. So, what is a minimum wage and what’s a living wage? And why is talk about raising it always controversial? Trolling Recently there’ve been a couple of big news stories involving Australian sports stars and online trolls. Both Carlton forward Tayla Harris, and West Coast player Liam Ryan have been the subject of abusive messages that many say come from trolls. So, what are trolls and what’s the best way to deal with them? Gambling in Games Last week the Victorian government launched a program designed to reduce the risk of kids being exposed to gambling through popular video games. It comes after a study showed that almost half of Australia’s top games have features that could be called gambling. Exo-Planets A team of international astronomers who are putting together an encyclopaedia of exo-planets has just announce that their list of alien worlds just tipped 4001! That’s exciting news, especially given that less than 30 years ago we didn’t know if there were any planets outside of our solar system. We take a look at what exo-planets are and why astronomers are so keen on tracking them down. Lent Right now, thousands of Christians in Australia are in the middle of an important religious festival. It’s called Lent and it usually involves fasting or giving something up for 40 days. We talk to some kids who are observing Lent to find out more about it and why it’s important to them.
