John Farnham’s recovery from cancer surgery

 John Farnham’s recovery from cancer surgery is progressing well, his family says, after he was moved into a rehabilitation facility this week.

The singer, 73, was moved from intensive care to the general ward of a Melbourne hospital “a couple of weeks ago”, his wife Jill Farnham said in a statement on Thursday morning, before he was then moved to the rehabilitation facility this week. “That in itself was terrific progress,” she said.

Will a Royal Commission fix Banksia Hill?

Even when the former head of Western Australia's Children's Court has called for a Royal Commission into the state's juvenile justice system as the fallout over the treatment of youth offenders in the state reaches boiling point, will a solution be found.

The call comes in response to a Four Corners investigation, revealing confronting footage of the treatment of a child at Banksia Hill detention centre.

On the same day, WA's current Children's Court president – Hylton Quail – again condemned the treatment of juvenile detainees at Banksia Hill.

His comments were made while sentencing a different teenager who had spent almost 64 per cent of his last stint in custody in unlawful solitary confinement, much of which was spent at the infamous unit 18 at WA's adult maximum security jail.

The boy sentenced on Monday is not the same boy Four Corners is reporting on.

Judge Quail spent almost one hour delivering his sentencing remarks for the teenager, who appeared before the court on numerous charges, including two counts of aggravated home burglary and one count of aggravated robbery.

Seniors fill jobs Hole!

A Victorian restaurant has solved its staffing issues by employing more seniors.. with the oldest team member now aged 76! Barry Idles is the owner of 360Q. And he says the retirees do a range of jobs and are especially needed at functions. 

With their party days behind them, Barry says they're very reliable. And now he's encouraging other businesses to target baby boomers to fill vacant roles.

Morrison’s secret ministries

 A new book, Plagued, and News Corp publications have revealed this was to the health and finance portfolios in March 2020, and then the industry, science, energy and resources portfolio in April 2021. The latter move cut across the roles of several other ministers.

Were these the only jobs Morrison added to his own?

No. Prime Minister says hisdepartment had told him Morrison was also appointed to administer Treasury (alongside Josh Frydenberg) and the Department of Home Affairs (whose minister was Karen Andrews) in May 2021.

Morrison initially said “there were a number that were considered at the time for safeguard reasons” but he cannot recall acting on those.

But later on Tuesday, in a lengthy post on Facebook, he said he’d added those departments to his suite of responsibilities “as an added administrative precaution, as a ‘belts and braces’ approach”.
