Story 1: "A day after he finally announced his departure from politics, Peter Costello was still reflecting on what might have been." Story 2: "The use of chemotherapy drugs is a common way of trying to kill cancer cells in the body. The drugs are expensive but they are subsidised. However, the Federal Government believes the way the drugs are prepared is wasteful and up to $35 million can be saved annually through a more efficient system of dispensing. The proposed changes have met bitter opposition from pharmacists and medical professionals, who describe the new system as unworkable and dangerous." Story 3: "Sir Ken Robinson, a leading thinker on education, creativity and innovation, who has advised various governments and major global corporations, says that most education systems around the world, including Australia s, are still modelled on the needs of the industrial age, are already narrow and are getting narrower."--ABC website
Exploring practices in peacebuilding, mediation and conflict transformation : from the intimate to the international by Rob Halford( Visual )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the question of journalistic integrity and independence in war reporting. Having learnt from the disastrous effects of media coverage of the Vietnam War in the Sixties and Seventies, Western armed alliances nowadays seek to carefully manage media coverage of military operations. The Gulf War with its 'coralling' of journalists in press conferences set the scene which has been repeated in the 1998-1999 NATO bombings of Iraq and Kosovo. NATO atrocities against Kosovan civilians are considered with regard to NATO's efforts to conceal the truth from 'their' journalists, and the principle of journalistic freedom in war reporting is considered more broadly. Studio guests: Robert Fisk, widely-travelled British foreign correspondent ; Stephen Badsey, Senior Lecturer in the Department of War Studies, Royal Military Academy Sandhurst ; and Philip Taylor, Director of the Institute of Communication Studies, Leeds University

But while foreign journalists are largely being forced out of the country, a defiant generation of Iranians are turning to the internet to broadcast events to the world." Story 2: "Judy Moran has been refused bail at a court hearing this afternoon, after being arrested last night and charged with being an accessory after the fact to murder. Des Moran was shot and killed by masked gunmen in a suburban shopping strip on Monday. Police say this does not signal a revival of the gangland war."

The baby business( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Grace is one of the tens of thousands of Australian women who have put their faith in fertility treatments to help conceive a much longed-for baby. At 42, she's been through six unsuccessful rounds of IVF. The physical, emotional and financial toll is huge. Julia too, had dreams of becoming a mother, undergoing 8 rounds of fertility treatment. And while she willingly put her body in the hands of fertility specialists, she struggled to get a clear answer on just what her chances of having a baby actually were. This week's Four Corners looks at the booming business of fertility, where the industry pulls in more than half a billion dollars in revenue, and asks whether clinics are giving women clear, unambiguous advice about their chances of giving birth. Many fertility specialists say it's up to individual women to decide how much treatment they can take. But as this program shows, there are concerns, even from industry insiders, that some women undergoing IVF don't actually need it. Others warn against the practice of upselling - where women are sold expensive and unproven treatments that one doctor says is akin to snake oil. And disturbingly, they also have concerns about the potential harm fertility treatments could be causing for women - including potential links to cancer
