Australia and the US are firm friends on defence – now let's turn that into world-beating climate action

Climate action is firmly on the political agenda in both Australia and the United States, following a recent change in government in both nations. As this year’s Australia-US Ministerial Consultations (AUSMIN) get underway in Washington, the Albanese and Biden administrations appear keen for deeper bilateral cooperation on tackling climate change. New research has found the political impetus for this cooperation is reflected in the views of Australians.

Who is the King of Swaziland? | 60 Minutes Australia

Subscribe here: http://9Soci.al/chmP50wA97J Full Episodes: https://9now.app.link/uNP4qBkmN6 |. There's nothing quite like it anywhere else in the world, an ancient African ritual, the spectacle to end all spectacles. A hundred thousand virgins - singing, dancing, paying homage to their king. He's Mswati The Third, the absolute ruler of Swaziland. And he's on the look out for another bride. Now Mswati's no ordinary monarch. He leads an extraordinary, exotic life. At 38, he's accumulated 12 or 13 wives and, we think, 27 children. We think because royal protocol forbids mere commoners knowing such personal details. But in a rare audience with His Majesty, we were able to raise these and other, more serious, questions about the king and his kingdom.

O Christmas Tree carol sung in 12 Indigenous languages

“Hopefully, you can see my noggin in a tiny little square there singing one of the seasonal words in language,” says Georgiadis, laughing. “It was really a special thing, and Clarence did an amazing job. When you think about what’s actually being sung, and the width and breadth of the fact that it’s not only looking at the seasonal changes of the plants, but it’s being sung in the languages of those places, from the conversations that I’ve had with Elders in different parts of the country, what excited me the most was, here we are hearing the language again and the land hasn’t heard its language for so long.

In contrast, Lowe’s language during the crisis was like a double shot of espresso delivered straight into the veins.
