Big four banks set to rake in $31b in profits, boosted by rate hike 'tailwind'

Big four banks set to rake in $31b in profits, boosted by rate hike 'tailwind'

2017-10-23 01:09:38, smh.com.au

The big four banks combined earnings are likely to exceed $31 billion in 2017, supported by their moves earlier this year to target property investors with higher interest rates. ANZ Bank, Westpac and National Australia Bank, who will unveil profit results over the next three weeks, are also expected to demonstrate banks are continuing to reap the benefits of historically low charges for bad loans, despite a soft economy and risks lurking in the housing market

Activist group GetUp! readies for court battle against Coalition investigation

Activist group GetUp! readies for court battle against Coalition investigation

2017-10-22 16:11:44, smh.com.au

Activist group GetUp! is readying itself for a costly legal battle to resist a push by Turnbull government MPs to have it declared a "front" for Labor and the Greens. The left-wing group says the latest attempt to have it formally linked to the political parties is "the greatest threat our independent grassroots movement has ever faced". Coalition MPs led by hard-right Liberal senator Eric Abetz want the Australian Electoral Commission to officially label GetUp! a partisan "associated entity" - the name given to unions and fundraising vehicles such as Parakeelia and the Cormack Foundation, which have direct links to a political party

Steve Roach blasts Sydney Roosters for insulting silence on Mitchell Pearce's future

Steve Roach blasts Sydney Roosters for insulting silence on Mitchell Pearce's future

2017-10-22 12:10:22, smh.com.au

A high-profile supporter of Mitchell Pearce has rubbished suggestions that he could learn from Cooper Cronk as a mature-age understudy at the Sydney Roosters, saying the club's pursuit of the Kangaroos No.7 was a "big kick in the guts" for their long-time halfback. The Roosters are expected to escalate their bid to lure Cronk to the eastern suburbs with chairman Nick Politis arriving back from overseas on Sunday and planning to meet with Roosters coach Trent Robinson early this week to discuss making a play for the 33-year-old and how his signing would affect others at the club

National strategy urged to tackle antibiotic resistance

National strategy urged to tackle antibiotic resistance

2017-10-22 15:10:09, smh.com.au

Aspects of medical care in Australia could regress to 1930s conditions if the rate of resistance to antibiotics isn't curbed soon, a report warns. The study puts forward a range of remedies and calls for a multi-pronged national strategy to avert dire consequences, including some operations becoming too dangerous to perform. The report's authors, led by Professor Chris Del Mar from Bond University's Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice, said that already about 1600 people in Australia die annually from antibiotic resistance

Greens sticking to plan to reduce dairy farming

2017-10-22 08:11:52, radionz.co.nz

The Greens intend pushing ahead with their plan to pay dairy farmers to convert to other forms of farming. Green MPs will hold some ministerial jobs outside Cabinet under their supply and confidence agreement with Labour, and although exact portfolios have yet to be announced, the party says it will have responsibilities for cleaning up waterways. Prior to the election, the Green Party said it would pay more than $136 million for farmers to move to more sustainable practices and if it were in government it would invest in a Sustainable Farming Fund

Fond memories for oldest student at Waipukurau Primary School 150th

Fond memories for oldest student at Waipukurau Primary School 150th

2017-10-22 20:14:19, nzherald.co.nz

Nearly a century has passed since Wynne Bullen first set foot in Waipukurau Primary School and things have certainly changed. The 98-year-old was the oldest past student to return to the school on Saturday for its 150th anniversary celebrations which included an official opening, cake cutting and an evening function. Mrs Bullen (nee Malkin), who moved from England in 1925, went to Waipukurau Primary School from 1926-1931 and has returned to the school twice for the 125th and 135th jubilees

New childcare subsidy puts focus on working parents

2017-10-22 11:09:07, smh.com.au

They say knowledge is power but let's be real – sometimes ignorance is bliss. My back-of-an-envelope calculation suggests my husband and I were more than $80,000 out of pocket for childcare fees by the time our twins started school. Gasp! I love my children and I love my job so I'm not complaining but I don't really want to think about that eye-watering number too much

A 15-year-old girl has survived a terrifying encounter with a five-metre shark, which knocked her into the water in front of her family off the coast of Normanville, south of Adelaide. Sarah Williams, from Mount Compass, was fishing for squid from her kayak when the shark, believed to be a great white, attacked the vessel. "The next thing I hear was a big bang of something very solid hitting the kayak, then screams," said her rattled father Chris Williams, who was in a nearby tinny at the time

Taxpayers slugged $200,000 as Jeff Kennett rents office from his wife

Taxpayers slugged $200,000 as Jeff Kennett rents office from his wife

2017-10-22 16:11:33, smh.com.au

Taxpayers have picked up a $200,000-plus tab for former premier Jeff Kennett to rent office space from his wife. The Kennetts' taxpayer-funded arrangement was uncovered by Fairfax Media as it investigated details about Mr Kennett's expenses revealed following a freedom-of-information request made by the Electrical Trades Union. The revelations are likely to rekindle controversy around publicly-funded perks for Australia's political class, the most recent row having been over Victorian Labor MPs rorting overnight travel allowances
