'Legislative slut-shaming': How the German 'Cuckoo Kids' Law' punishes women

Women in Germany could be compelled to
reveal acts of infidelity if a new law designed to protect men who
believe they've been duped into raising kids who are not biologically
theirs is passed. But, writes Jo Fox, such a law would only harm women
and their children.
Relationships can be messy. Messy going in and messy going out.

Sometimes
children get caught up in the mess, but generally policy makers and the
courts try to shield them from any fallout in relationship breakdown by
putting their interests first. This inevitably means moving away from
the courts

Will the Brexit become a Bremain?

Will the Brexit become a Bremain? : Tips and Steps:


The wash-up from the Brexit has turned
into a tidal wave for global markets, British politics, the pound and,
it appears, according to reports, racial tolerance in England.

Some believe that as happened in Ireland, Britain may consider another referendum - and a possible return to the EU.

Tasmania energy crisis

Tasmania energy crisis:



The Tasmanian Government is bracing for a worst-case scenario of Hydro Tasmania's dam levels reaching a minimum of 6.5 per cent.

Key points:

  • Dams currently at 14.8 per cent capacity
  • Previous predictions estimated drop to 13.6 per cent
  • Now bracing for fall as low as 6.5 per cent
The dams, which are used for hydro-electric generation, are currently at a record low of 14.8 per cent and falling by more than 0.5 per cent every week.
The Government previously predicted they would reach a low of 13.6 per cent before the broken Basslink power cable was repaired, but that figure appears to have been abandoned.
