COVER STORY The Strange Case of the Vanishing Safe Schools Resources
The opposition to Safe Schools continues to grow. The strange thing is that the more the media coverage of the Safe Schools program exposed, the contents of the resources and what information and advice students were being exposed to through recommended websites, the more, slowly but surely, those contents were cleaned up to make the exposure look like a “myth”.

EDITORIAL By-elections will test Shorten's 'politics of envy' strategy
The by-elections to be held in five federal seats on July 28 will tell whether the electorate buys Bill Shorten’s “politics of envy”, but the signs are that most people will reject it.

ASIA-PACIFIC AFFAIRS A modest proposal for Australia's regional security
Bipartisan agreement on new federal legislation to deter Beijing’s interference in Australian politics and economy is necessary and welcome. However, far greater defence spending and investment in developing our Pacific island neighbours will also be necessary to secure Australia’s sovereignty.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Odds are that Labor won't Albo Bill aside
Labor’s problem going into the next federal election is to what degree Bill Shorten’s unpopularity with voters will risk the party’s chances of winning government on the back of strong and persistent electoral momentum in favour of Labor.

TECHNOLOGY Wonder carbon material on cusp of commercialisation
No doubt you have heard of graphite. The material in pencils. And you may also have heard that graphite and diamonds are made of the same thing – they are both pure carbon.

ENVIRONMENT Electric vehicles still only for elitist planet savers
Some emerging electric/hybrid vehicles are truly exciting; a world away from the likes of the original Toyota Prius. But why should taxpayers be asked to subsidise one type of vehicle over another in the belief that doing so will “save the planet”?

ENERGY SECURITY Steam rail backup could get us out of hot water

FOREIGN AFFAIRS Beijing goes 'boo', Qantas gets in a flap
The evocative term “flag carrier” dates back to the early days of aviation, when men wore suits to fly and their companions wore formal dresses. Flying was glamorous – and expensive. Even a short trip could cost several months’ wages. Commonly, men joined the Commonwealth Public Service in the expectation of earning a trip overseas – by air, or course.

EUTHANASIA Death with dignity, or putting Death to death?

MUSIC Aural wallpaper: The background hiss to our lives
British conductor Thomas Beecham famously quipped that the “English may not like music, but they absolutely love the noise it makes”.

CINEMA Ant-Man and the Wasp: Downsized superheroes
Superhero movies like to go big – the heroes are fighting to save the country, save the world, save the galaxy, save the universe, save reality itself. And the villains tend to have similarly big plans – even if they’re only at phase one of those plans.

BOOK REVIEW Fraudulent father of psychoanalysis
This new book on Freud by Frederick Crews gathers together a mass of data, some of it not before published, which proves beyond any reasonable doubt that Freud was, well, a fraud! It is a devastating account, carefully dissecting the sometimes-contradictory accounts given by Freud himself, as well as by his contemporaries.
