Hi There! I am Emily from Adelaide city, South Australia. I am a 25-year-old girl and student of an interior designing form the University of Adelaide. I am staying with family in Adelaide city since I was ten years old. About me, I love Chinese food, love to mooch around and a backpacker. I love travelling, so every month I go out on vacation with my friends. The city is full of tourist over the year because of mesmerising views; there are lots of things which attract visitor over the world.

The University of Southampton’s WorldPop researchers analysed the volume of travellers entering countries from high-risk cities within China prior to and after Chinese New Year, giving countries a risk percentage. Australia ranks 10th, higher than Macau (13th) – China’s special administrative region which shares a border with the mainland.

Thailand ranks first with a risk factor of 15 per cent, twice that of third-place Hong Kong, while Japan is second with an 11.5 per cent risk. Germany, despite being one of the first countries to confirm human-to-human transmission between people who hadn’t travelled to China, ranks 15th. In a breakdown of cities, Sydney ranks 12th in the world while Melbourne 14th. Bangkok and Hong Kong are ranked first and second respectively.

On Sunday, Arndt was made a Member of the Order of Australia, the third-highest rank in Australia’s civic orders system, for services “to gender equity”. Arndt has been a source of controversy for several years, particularly for her speaking tour arguing there is a “fake rape crisis” at university campuses, her book #MenToo, and most recently for a 2018 interview conducted with convicted paedophile Nicolaas Bester. Bester was jailed for grooming and repeatedly raping his 15-year-old student. After being released from prison, Bester said on an internet forum in 2015 that his crime was “awesome”. In the interview, Arndt described female students as being “sexually provocative” to male teachers. This includes the Guardian in 2010. Pink slug survives Australia bushfires on Mount Kaputur. The unique, eye-catching creature only lives on the slopes of an isolated inactive volcano in New South Wales, Mount Kaputar, from which they take their name.

After recent rainfall, rangers from New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service found "about 60" Mount Kaputar slugs alive, according to a recent post on the organization's Facebook page. The Facebook post added that there had been fears for this "unusual species" after the fires impacted "much of its alpine habitat. " "They may not be as cute as koalas or wallabies, but this species also plays an important role in its ecosystem," the post said. The Mount Kaputar slug, measuring up to 20 centimeters (7.9 inches), went mostly unstudied until 2013, when it was identified as a new species. Researchers had previously thought it was a variation of the red triangle slug, also found in New South Wales. The slugs have never been spotted anywhere but the summit area of Mount Kaputar, located in the state's northeast. 'Boat person, ladyboy or drug dealer': how Australian TV sidelines Asians.

Last year, when my mum was staying at our place, she stood up at 7pm and said, “Right!

'Boat person, ladyboy or drug dealer': how Australian TV sidelines Asians

Let’s watch the news!” We laughed at her because no one knew what the hell she was talking about, and none of us knew how to help her. Another time – back when I was a single mum – my kids and I were staying at a crappy hotel with a TV so old that you had to change the channels by hand, turning a dial. When an ad came on the girls, who had never seen ads, were utterly baffled: “Mum, I think this TV is broken,” one said.

TV, as the older generation knows it, is broken – or at least has changed so much that it’s almost unrecognisable. When Guardian Australia asked readers to nominate their most memorable moments of Australian TV history, I was struck by the absence of Asian representation in the avalanche of replies. Australian TV has always been like that: it’s great until you notice what’s missing. Twenty years ago I auditioned for my first job on TV. Representation matters. But times are changing. Eighth coronavirus case confirmed in Australia. A third person has been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus in Victoria, bringing the total number of cases in Australia to eight.

The infected woman is in her 40s and visiting Australia from China's central Hubei Provence, Victorian health authorities confirmed on Thursday. "[She] is in a stable condition with the respiratory illness. She has been confirmed positive today following a series of tests," they said in a statement. Meanwhile, Queensland authorities are attempting to reach people who flew from Melbourne to the Gold Coast on Tiger Airways flight #TT566 on 27 January, after authorities confirmed a 44-year-old Chinese national had travelled on the flight while infected with the virus. The man was from Wuhan, believed to be the epicentre of the disease, and was travelling with eight other people in a tour group who have all since been isolated.

Four of the eight people are unwell and being tested for the virus. Passengers arriving at airport wearing masks.
