Remember Australia’s Unsung Heroes When Commemorating Anzac Day

It has come to include not only those involved in World War I, but in all conflicts since.

Get Ready for International Day of Women and Girls in Science: 11th February, 2017

Get Ready for International Day of Women and Girls in Science: 11th February, 2017
The scientific community is brimming with talented individuals, who constantly seek out ways to change life as we know it. It is a community that extends beyond borders, but when it comes to gender diversity, there are some distinct and troubling patterns. Women are continually underrepresented in the professional field of science, with men dominating the research landscape. It is for this reason that the United Nations dedicated 11th February as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. It is a day that attempts to engage more females in the sciences, while empowering…

Trump, Gun-Control & More: Videos on the US Election 2016
On November 8 the world will watch closely as the United States heads to the polls to conclude what has been one of the most divisive US elections in generations. This heated election season has witnessed the improbable rise of Donald Trump, one of the most controversial Presidential candidates in the United States’ history. Trump has gone from being a laughing stock to a serious indicator that a swathe of America feels disenfranchised enough to turn to a leader variously characterised as a racist, tax-cheat and demagogue and a misogynist (a claim verified in no…

Teach About Shakespeare with these Videos on ClickView

Teach About Shakespeare with these Videos on ClickView
To this day William Shakespeare remains a staple of the English classroom. The diversity of plots, combined with the timelessness of the themes in his comedies, tragedies and histories, sees Shakespeare broadly regarded as the greatest playwright and poet of the English language. Yet with this fame come the fears many students and teachers hold when faced with the challenge of understanding the texts and engaging with them deeply. Shakespeare is often placed in the ‘too hard’ pile when readers are thrown in the deep end without pre-reading and contextual study being utilised. (more…)

Vale Muhammad Ali

Vale Muhammad Ali
Muhammad Ali, one of boxing's titans and a hero worldwide, passed away on Saturday after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. As a fighter Ali embodied a tenacious and rebellious spirit which, early on, put him offside with many both inside the industry and out. He shocked the boxing world with his unorthodox style and early career takedown of Sonny Liston for the World Heavy Weight Championship and he shocked much of America when he changed his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali and joined the Nation of Islam to further his fight for civil-rights.…
