Op-Ed: ‘Alien’ creatures found off Australian coast

Op-Ed: Downvaluing grads — Where the elite meet the street

Sydney - The day of the invulnerable college grad is drawing to a close. Indications are that relative wages are getting lower and job security is non-existent. Against steadily increasing college degree costs, return on investment is not looking good.

Op-Ed: Putin says ‘I can take Kiev in two weeks’ as fighting escalates

Kiev - One hundred years after Europe’s most pointless war, and 75 years after its bloodiest, Russia has raised the stakes in Ukraine. Ukrainian troops are allegedly fighting modern Russian T90 tanks in eastern Ukraine, and losing ground.

Op-Ed: FBI moves on celebrity pics leaks — Cloud security farce exposed

Sydney - The FBI is investigating the leaks of “intimate” pictures of celebrities. While this may be a more valuable exercise than it looks and expose Cloud security weaknesses, the level of priority has to be questioned.

Op-Ed: A dollar a smoke in Australia a gift to organised crime

Sydney - The Australian anti-smoking campaign is trumpeting major successes in reducing smoking numbers, but the facts are much less clear. Most information is gathered from tobacco sales, but of course doesn’t include the emerging black market in tobacco.

Op-Ed: Robots, the Cloud and robot banks — Utopia? Maybe, maybe not

Sydney - The robots are coming, but not the way you’d expect. They’re about to replace the suits, and perhaps even declutter your home. Spooky? Much more than that. There’s a “vision of excellence," and you know what that means — chaos.

Op-Ed: Mindless learning — Student lack of critical thinking major issue

Op-Ed: 1,400 kids sexually abused in one UK town, cops knew, did nothing

Rotherham - It must surely be one of the most inglorious moments in British history. A report indicates that a place called Rotherham was for years a centre of serious sexual violence and abuse of children over a period of 16 years.

Op-Ed: Scotland the (more or less) Brave faces independence

Edinburgh - Scotland is a strange mix of characteristics. There are two Scottish characters. You’ll have Robert the Bruce and some whining git who’ll bitch at you for hours about burning the scones hundreds of years ago.

Review: Capaldi as Doctor Who- Excellent first show

London - Given the almost impossible task of taking over from the truly brilliant, irritatingly likeable Matt Smith, Peter Capaldi certainly gave a Herculean effort. That was no script for beginners they gave him, either.
