  3. Civilisation, forensics and myths2018/12/31
    Civilisation is more than flags and monuments isn't it? Just how reliable is forensic evidence and a really good story from a not so good place.
  4. Food and favours2018/12/24
    There's more to war than weapons, there's also food and the battles over who invented what and when. How important is working to you and wherever you are open the windows and see if you can hear some birds...what a glorious sound!

  8. Immigration, China and Pasta2018/11/26
    Are Australians as divided over immigration as we think we are or do we more or less agree on what we want and when we want it? What are some Chinese students really doing in universities and will China end up having more influence than Australia and New Zealand in the Pacific region? When you look to the stars do you see pasta? No? Grab that telescope and look again.
  9. Opening pandora's box and eating a banana whilst on zeppelin 2018/11/19
    Are university and college students too coddled and are banana's in danger of becoming extinct? Who was Pandora and why did she open her box and why aren't we flying the world in a zeppelin?
  10. Singing, strongmen and enemies2018/11/12
    Can the relationship between Australia and China be instructive for the rest of the world?

  11. Not defeated, not deleted but calm and very definitely carrying on. 2018/11/05
    What does the rise and rise of a new middle class in Asia mean for the rest of the world? Are we defeated or defiant when it comes to terrorist attacks and what exactly happened in the Stanford prison experiment? How do we grieve when someone is gone but not deleted?
  12. Conspiracies, protests and the space race.2018/10/29
    China is in space, what might that mean for a space race? How can universities maintain free speech and can contrarians be part of a group or not, or is it all just one big conspiracy theory?
  13. Patriotism, civilisations and stereotypes2018/10/22

    Where has the all the Venezuelan oil money gone? Where is China going next and can India and the United States be partners? Plus is one really the loneliest number?
  16. Bigotry, belts and agriculture2018/10/01
    Has the line between bigotry and anti-bigotry narrowed and is universal authorship a good thing? Are there parts of our agricultural industry that could help in West African agriculture and is the Indo-pacific region and China on a collision course?
  17. Bees, bibles, bananas and boats2018/09/24
    What is the Indo- Pacific strategy and does Australia have a role to play? The perils of the new morality and the costs of keeping our banana industry pure and who are the honey makers?

    How does our relationship with our cousins across the ditch affect our Pacific policy? How many people make a good city and for that matter, how many dogs. Plus be careful what you wish for, especially when you sit down in front of the TV for an hour...or make that two or three.
  20. Food, fashion and foreigners.2018/09/03

  22. Grateful for money, food and language2018/08/20
    What options do countries have when they need some extra money and is there a need for a better food policy in Asia? Should we be more grateful or at least be better at expressing and receiving gratitude and we find out about a new reconstructed Indigenous language that's emerged from Tasmania .
  23. Regulation and Riding2018/08/13
    Is regulation good or bad or does it depend on what industry they're applied to? Piracy in the Indian Ocean has gone down...or has it? How would we know? Plus a stolen horse in a book written by a farmer, it's a fabulous yarn!

  25. Grumbling and arguing and boats and why it's all good. 2018/07/23

  26. Oil and money and disruptions2018/07/16
    What is Russia doing in Venezuela; why we need to be cool...and carry on with China and can we compare emerging markets to a canary in a coal mine, a financial coal mine?
