Climate change action in Newcastle and the Hunter / Environmental initiatives / Initiatives / Newcastle Law School / Schools. The cost and negative impacts of climate change action are predicted to be much less than the cost and negative impacts of failing to act.

However, negative impacts of climate change action will fall disproportionately on some communities, especially in farming and coal-mining areas, such as the Hunter region. We would therefore advocate for bipartisan support for following international best practices for the restructuring that will become necessary in the Hunter and similar regions. This might include market-led initiatives and some government-led initiatives. International experience suggests initiatives of this nature are most successful with planning and implementation over a number of years. For example, if the Hunter was to become an electric car and autonomous vehicle manufacturing region, it would benefit from cooperation between the University, different levels of government, and industry.

'Immense Harm Is Caused by the Belief That Work Is Virtuous.' What We Can Lea...

He was writing at a time when only the most affluent in society had the opportunity for leisure time while the poor labored away in dirty, dangerous and dull work. Today, in developed countries the situation is quite the opposite. For the first time in history, the most skilled, highest earners in society are working the longest hours. But why is it that those who can afford the most leisure are now taking the least? It turns out we still have much to learn from the old greats such as Russell and Keynes. The first message is that as a society, we have had a vested interest in seeing work as virtuous. According to Keynes, despite entire populations moving into higher skill, higher paid work, “we have been trained too long to strive and not to enjoy.” A second message from the works of the old greats is that how we spend our leisure time is also a point of contention.

The 10 best Australian TV shows of 2018: a picnic, rush hour and outback noir

This year, eight of our top 10 Australian television shows were produced by the ABC (five) and SBS (three). That is not unusual (last year’s list told a similar story) but still, it’s disappointing that commercial free-to-air networks have such trouble getting their acts together. Having said that, Peter Helliar’s show How to Stay Married – a spin-off of ABC’s fine It’s a Date series – came close to making this list, its thoughtfully developed characters (who grow on you with time) compensating for a lack of directorial and storytelling flair. As usual, soap operas and reality TV programs didn’t make it in. Couples That Work.
