What prospects for peace in Israel? Three Israel-related events since just before Christmas have been prominent in Australia's media. On December 23, the UN Security Council adopted resolution 2334, with the United States abstaining rather than vetoing. It states "… the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace."...

Here's how Donald Trump could stop being such a jerk When Donald Trump was elected president, it felt to me like the most reckless thing our country had done in my lifetime. But like many Americans, I hoped for the best: He'll grow into the job. He'll surround himself with good people. The country could use a jolt of fresh thinking. He'll back off some of his most extreme views.... Pubdate: Thu Jan 19 09:18:35 UTC 2017

If Paddington terraces are spreading across Sydney, why not also its laneways? It's the type of message you might read on a poster at the physio: "Visualise the process, not the result." But it might contain some truth. Or at least truth enough to lodge in your mind while you wait on a frayed hamstring. And to return to when you're thumbing through planning laws…...

Gen X: what did the Boomers ever do for us? I'm 50 this year. My parents are well into their 70s. They can't believe I'm 50, as they still feel so young. They are 'young'. They are still involved in things. Global holidaying, writing letters to MPs, wisely consulting to their past subordinates, recounting the big achievements in their (ex) jobs....

Pauline Hanson isn't like other politicians ... she's worse The one thing about which I agree with Senator Hanson is her claim that she is not like all the other politicians. Too true; in fact she is worse.... Pubdate: Wed Jan 18 06:52:40 UTC 2017

Teaching is a profession, but unions try to make it a trade Last week, my provocative Facebook question explored teachers, their holidays and whether they really 'lesson-plan from home.'
