First helicopter drops of cane toad sausages prompt design tweak
Stinky sausages made of cane toad flesh have been scattered from helicopters in a wide-scale trial that researchers hope will give native animals a fighting chance. The sausages were air-dropped across a remote Kimberley cattle station just ahead of the cane toad frontline. They were developed as part of a taste aversion program to try to prevent native species like quolls from being killed by the toxic toads.

西亚国家希望将澳大利亚逐出亚足联,澳大利亚的存在是否挤压了国足和西亚进入世界杯的机会? - 知乎

亚洲一共4.5个参加世界杯的名额。日韩在亚洲的地位基本稳如泰山了,基本高于其他亚洲球队至少一个档次;如今澳大利亚的实力并不输于日韩,加入之后基本也占用一个名额。如此一来,包括西亚国家在内的其余亚洲国家,也只能抢最后那一个半名额了(半个名额有一半可能还完全没戏)。所以,肯定很多国家感到不爽,觉得澳大利亚抢了自己的机会。

Amazon to block Australians from shopping on its international sites - The Verge
Australian shoppers will find themselves limited to a much smaller Amazon item selection beginning on July 1st. Instead of being able to visit and make purchases from international versions of Amazon’s web store — as most of us can do — they’ll be redirected to the local Australian site. Geoblocking isn’t the only strategy Amazon is taking; Amazon.com and the company’s other sites will no longer ship to Australian addresses as of the same date.

When I say “much smaller,” Amazon’s local Australia site still sells tens of millions of products, but it’s definitely a significantly lesser total than you’d find from Amazon’s US site. Reuters estimates that it offers one-tenth of Amazon.com’s selection. All the basics should be readily available, but this will be a real problem for certain item categories.

The move is the result of Amazon’s unwillingness to cooperate with Australia’s updated GST (goods and services tax), which would require the online retail giant to collect a 10 percent tax on all purchases that are shipped to Australia from overseas; previously the GST only applied to imported items over A$1,000.
