‘You Don’t Have Empathy For People Who Don’t Look Like You’

IT was a “scientific experiment” to explore racism which deteriorated into a row between two polar opposites, and claims of a stitch-up. Muslim activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied, who sparked controversy after a fiery exchange with Senator Jacqui Lambie on Q&A, took on far right activist Nick Folkes on SBS show The Truth About Racism. Ms Abdel-Magied told the chairman of the anti-immigration Party for Freedom she wasn’t “interested any more” in his views on immigration. It was sparked when Mr Folkes conceded he showed less empathy for black people in pain than white people, saying “my compassion has its limitations, absolutely”. The Truth About Racism experiment saw people of different ethnic backgrounds, including Mr Folkes and Ms Abdel-Magied, undergo a series of experiments which ass...

Crackdown Looms For Work-Related Tax Deductions

THE government is plotting a crackdown on “creative” accountants who inflate work-related personal tax deductions. Currently workers can claim a broad range of deductions including self-education, vehicle and travel, clothing, laundry and home office expenses.

But the Courier-Mail reports Treasurer Scott Morrison favours a compliance crackdown targeting accountants and workers, who will face tougher scrutiny and be required to justify their expenses. The Australian Taxation Office is already working on a compliance plan, the paper re...

Mother’s Guilt: ‘If I Had Given Him One Bottle, He Would Still Be Alive’

LANDON Johnson would have been five last week. Tragically he never made that birthday, or any celebration before that after passing away just days after being born. His brave mum Jillian has struggled with sharing the details of her son’s death, fearing she would be judged. But now she has found the courage to speak out to educate other new mums. Kidspot reports that baby Landon died after going into cardiac arrest caused by severe dehydration. The mum-of-two claims her exclusively breastfed son would still be alive today if he had just been fed a bottle. “Did you know newborns aren’t supposed to cry all the time? They’re supposed to eat and sleep and dirty their diapers. I had no idea that he was inconsolable because he was starving — literally,” she wrote. Jillian and her husband J...

Apple Will Ditch Lightning Port From The IPhone 8, Rumours Suggest

APPLE is planning to remove the familiar Lightning connector from a future model of the iPhone, it has been claimed. The Sun reports the latest tech industry rumours about Apple’s upcoming smartphone indicate the firm wants to remove the Lightning jack and replace it with USB-3. This move would provoke some mild grumbling from people who own headphones or other peripherals which connect to the Lightning jack.

In terms of other rumours, the premium phone will likely have a 5.8-inch display, which will be slightly bigger than the 5.5-inch display iPhone 7 Plus and the 4.7-inch iPhone 7.
