Women are not financially illiterate. They need more than condescending advice | Kristine Ziwica

Debate about recent and upcoming changes to superannuation, including the early release scheme and the proposed rise to the superannuation guarantee, has been running hot for a few months now. Likewise, the fact that women have been disproportionately hit by the pandemic has also been the subject of much commentary. But an issue related to both those current debates that hasn’t gotten anywhere near as much attention as it should is women’s economic security.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Spiller: how we made Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love)

This was one of the fastest tracks I ever produced. It was 1999, the night before I was due to fly to Miami for the Winter Music Conference, where all aspiring DJs and producers went. I was trying to stay awake for my early-morning flight and put on an unreleased version of Carol Williams’ Love Is You. I ended up sampling it and, in a couple of hours, I had Groovejet more or less written....

US national park gateway towns ‘devastated’ as visitors stay away amid pandemic

If you’ve visited a national park, you’ve probably passed through a gateway community like Mariposa – to get gas, stay in a hotel, or grab a bite to eat. Their economies rely on a steady stream of tourists traveling to nearby, big-ticket outdoorsy destinations every year. Towns like Mariposa, located an hour from Yosemite Valley, have prospered thanks to this special relationship with national parks: in 2019, national park visitors spent $21bn in communities within 60 miles of a national park, supporting over 278,000 jobs. But this year, gateway communities are suffering financially.

'One thing I've learned about modern farming – we shouldn't do it like this'

As we walked quietly through the trees, the water ahead looked like a manmade fishing lake, or maybe a small reservoir. We were in a strip of forest, along a single-track road, making our way towards a huge industrial farm. It was overcast and the high trees made the day even more gloomy.

Young, British & Black: the voices behind the UK’s anti-racism protests

I remember when Mark Duggan was killed by police. It was my generation's Stephen Lawrence moment An event that I had a first visceral connection to was the London riots of 2011, when Mark Duggan was killed by police. It was probably my generation's Stephen Lawrence moment. Black people in this country are given the talk. I was eight years old when my parents gave me that talk; that one day, I might be stopped by the police. I might not have done anything wrong, I just happen to be black in this

Russian state-sponsored hackers target Covid-19 vaccine researchers

Russian state-sponsored hackers are targeting UK, US and Canadian organisations involved in developing a coronavirus vaccine, according to British security officials. The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) said drug companies and research groups were being targeted by a group known as APT29, which was “almost certainly” part of the Kremlin’s intelligence services. British officials would not say if any of the attacks had been successful in their goal of stealing medical secrets. They s

Abortion drugs remain inaccessible, unsafe and unaffordable for many Australian women | Gina Rushton

It has been 24 years since the federal government chose the partial privatisation of Telstra over the rights of Australian women to safely terminate a pregnancy with abortion drugs. In 1996, anti-abortion independent Brian Harradine, who held the balance of power in the Senate, agreed to support John Howard’s one-third float of the telecommunications company if the government amended legislation to give the health minister veto to prohibit the import, manufacture or use of abortion drug RU486.
