Taxing 'religious buildings' a fund for child abuse victim reparation So it seems that the Royal Commission on Institutional Child Abuse has recommended a nationwide reimbursement fund for victims. How to pay for it? May I recommend a small once off land tax on every "religious building" getting tax exempt status. Even 0.05 per cent of the value of the multimillion-dollar churches and other religious buildings,  would pay for every victim to get a life-changing gift from those who, as an institution, affected their lives.  And perhaps leftover funds could be used for counselling, advertising,  and outreach to those still being affected. ...

Suzanna Leigh, 60s actress played love interest opposite Elvis Suzanna Leigh, who has died aged 72, was a British-born 60s starlet who dated, among others, Richard Harris, Steve McQueen and Michael Caine; but it was her friendship with Elvis Presley, for whom she supplied the love interest in the 1966 film Paradise, Hawaiian Style, that dominated her life....

A year of courage and raw storytelling draws to a close - and we'll be the better for it The year 2017 will surely remembered as the year the gloss wore off and the gloves came off, a year when the posturing of politicians was utterly trumped by the everyday courage and bravery of ordinary Australians. As it draws to a close, 2017 has morphed into a year of honest storytelling. Of ripping off Band-Aids. Of exposing the ugly truths of public and private life to the cleansing glare of sunlight....

Australians unfit to fill United Nations secretary-general role Australia being taken to task for its shameful, shabby record re racism is, tragically, nothing new ("United Nations warns racism 'on the rise' in Australia", December 10). It was excruciatingly galling to recently witness our Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop, declare with perfect poker face that Australia has the appropriate credentials to nominate a candidate for the prestigious position of UN Secretary-General. Considering the UN job description required a candidate capable of responding to 21st century demands, including that of climate change and handling the influx of refugees, an Australian application would be simply ludicrous....
