Op-Ed: Femme Fatale actress sued for refusing to do topless scene

Time Warner HBO’s “Femme Fatale” TV series is a tacky take on a magazine of the same name. This loser show just got tackier. Producers are complaining about Anne Greene’s refusal to comply with the “must show nipples” clause in her contract.

Op-Ed: Australia has lost one of her favourite sons, Gough Whitlam, 98

Sydney - Gough Whitlam was a maverick politician, ahead of his time and a true exponent of the core principles of the labour movement. He’s one of the few Australian Prime Ministers who truly revolutionized the nation.

Op-Ed: Putin ‘wanted to split Ukraine with Poland’

Warsaw - In what can only be described as a major added splash in the murky puddle of Ukraine/Russian relations, it’s been revealed by Polish sources that Vladimir Putin proposed splitting Ukrainian territory between Russia and Poland in 2008.

Op-Ed: Sex invented in Scottish lake? Well, where else?

Sydney - Two armoured fish called Microbrachius dicki are believed to be the pioneers of sex, 385 million years ago. The fish used a side-on position to mate, breaking with a long tradition of somewhat impersonal spawning.

Op-Ed: Hey, MIT — What about success on Mars?

Sydney - The Massachusetts Institute of Technology study of the Mars One project has come up with a few very interesting, but debatable figures and options. There's a bit more to this issue than the usual obituary for human hopes, this time.

Op-Ed: Ancient kangaroos didn’t hop, they walked

Sydney - In a discovery which is both fascinating and very likely to create a lot more questions, researchers have discovered that ancient kangaroos did walk on two legs, but couldn’t hop. This is a very tricky bit of science.

Op-Ed: ‘Ban Putin’ G20 uproar in Australia, Pravda sneers

Sydney - The attendance of Russian Federation president Vladimir Putin at the G20 meeting in Brisbane isn’t popular with many sections of the Australian public. The Australian government isn’t too happy, either.

Op-Ed: Porn at work — The industry that steals your brain?

Sydney - Watching porn at work is global. Three percent of Americans admit watching porn at work, according to some figures. Nielsen says 29 percent watch it at least every week. The numbers never add up, but the problem is everywhere.

Op-Ed: Bigger brains not better – New study shows flaws in size theory

Sydney - New studies have shown that rats and mice, which have very different brain sizes, have similar intelligence. A new study suggests that the assumption of brain size as a measure of intelligence was an intuitive, but wrong, assumption.

Op-Ed: Sense of smell predicts longevity? Yes, at least for some

Sydney - New research suggests the ability to smell five particular smells does have a relationship with longevity. In a study of 3005 people, 39 percent of those who failed died. Those with better senses of smell did much better.

Op-Ed: Women in tech - What women don’t want, defined

Sydney - Neo feminism is a lot less rhetorical and more focused than old feminism. The general approach is “To hell with you, if you don’t do it, I’ll do it myself”. It's now a question of what women don't want, as much as what they do.

Op-Ed: Behind Windows 10 – A return to good user functionality, or what?

Sydney - After the general loathing of Windows 8, Microsoft has moved with unseemly haste to crank up the new OS, formerly known as Windows 9, now to be called Windows 10. The question is whether real users will like it, not whether its PR sways the public.

Op-Ed: Mystery on Titan — Why did a feature in Titan’s sea disappear?

Sydney - Astronomers watching features on Saturn’s moon Titan were astonished to see a “land” feature simply disappear on photos from the Cassini spacecraft. This large feature, a peninsula on the Saturnian hydrocarbon “sea,” seems to have disappeared.

Op-Ed: Australian Rules Grand Final 2014 second half

Melbourne - The game’s slowed a bit, to a more conventional type of play. The first Hawk goal comes from a good pass across goal. The second comes from a good mark from the centre. A snapshot from Jack gets the Swans’ first out of a crowd around the ball.

Op-Ed: Australian Rules Grand Final 2014 First half

Melbourne - This could be one of the great grand finals of all time Hawthorn and Sydney, both at the top of their games, are playing hard, and the game is being played at a sprint. These are two highly experienced teams, and the ball-handling is superb.

Op-Ed: IS blows up Saladin shrine, shrine of martyrs

Tikrit - The “Islamic State” continues to destroy every vestige of Islamic greatness it finds. In a recent act of vandalism, they destroyed the shrine to Saladin in his home birthplace, Tikrit.

Op-Ed: Poverty and inequality — A study in ignorance and failure

Sydney - The word “poverty” produces a lot of information and no results. Studies don’t even begin to define it. Huge amounts of data and money are spent, ineptly, failing to solve the problem.

Op-Ed: Google vs Murdoch — When giants disagree

Sydney - A recent open letter from Rupert Murdoch to the European Commission accuses Google of being anti-competitive. That’s not good news for Google, which is currently under anti-trust investigation in the EU.

Op-Ed: 4Chan user naked Emma Watson pics threat hoax by media co morons

New York - A user on 4Chan, a sorry excuse for a troll social site, has threatened to release nude pictures of Emma Watson after her recent feminist speeches. Watson, apparently, is one of many stars to be demeaned in this way.

India arrives at Mars to applause and some bitchiness

New Delhi - India has achieved a first-try Martian orbit with a low cost spacecraft. All other nations failed on their first attempt. While most have congratulated India on this significant achievement, some media outlets have been quite catty about it.
