My Experience of Online Learning 2

Well, I didn’t ever expect I’d have to write a part 2 to this article. However, another outbreak and lockdown has led to students across Australia enduring another period of online learning. Here is my experience of education from home. The first article I posted on online learning was in September 2020. I reflected on…

Why I Started Sport with Sim

I love sport. I always have. My earliest sporting memories include the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final, and the 2011 Ashes series between Australia and England.

FriendlyJordies and John Barilaro: A Terrifying Legal Dispute

While NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet may laugh and dismiss the rapidly evolving situation between Youtuber FriendlyJordies and Deputy Premier John Barilaro, there is nothing to joke about. While this started through some comedic videos posted on YouTube, it has now proceeded to the courts and is much more significant than an individual defamation hearing. Furthermore,…

NSW Labor Disaster

It was a golden opportunity for Jodi McKay and the NSW Labor Party. An opportunity which they believed was within reach. However, another demoralising defeat, another leadership spill, and another lack-lustre campaign have left the party searching for answers. The Upper Hunter byelection was triggered after it emerged that former Nationals MP, Michael Johnsen, was…
