The kitchen is considered the heart of every home. With everyone forced to stay indoors to slow down the spread of COVID-19, kitchens are seeing more traffic than any place in the house.  In addition to preparing meals, most people prefer to eat, talk, and even work at the kitchen table, a reason you might want to consider a kitchen renovation. Depending on the condition of your kitchen, a few simple upgrades should give it a fresh new look and improved functionality.

120 years of wheat varieties planted to track industry's evolution

120 years of wheat varieties planted to track industry's evolution

ABC News

Wheat researchers are going back in time to produce a visual display of just how far the industry has come and to examine what work remains to improve crop productivity.

Seeds from 15 wheat varieties dating back to 1901 have been sown, and by the end of the year will paint a picture of the changes made over the past 120 years.

It is part of the University of Sydney's 60-year celebrations of its Plant Breeding Institute at Narrabri in north-west New South Wales which has been responsible for continually improving wheat lines.

"Farmers always have a favourite, or not-so-favourite, variety," said the university's director of northern agriculture, Guy Roth.

Dear Northern Inlanders,

As our region continues to face unprecedented times, the resilience of our communities continues to shine. As our communities start to reopen with decreased restrictions, it is now time to work together to rebuild from the devastation of not only COVID-19, but also the bushfires and the ongoing drought. While the Australian Government’s support programs have helped us through these times, I am looking forward to hearing further details of the JobMaker program when they become available so we can work towards a stronger economy for our region together.

The results of our Impacts of COVID-19 on Businesses survey are in, and the impact has been significant. Almost half of our businesses have had a downturn of 50% or more of their income, and 67% do not have enough income to cover their operating costs. We are continuing to work closely with the Australian Government to provide feedback about the experiences of businesses in our region during the shutdown and during the recovery period, which will take years of hard work.

Calls to expand Indigenous circle sentencing after success in Walgett and Dubbo

Calls to expand Indigenous circle sentencing after success in Walgett and Dubbo

ABC News

A former Dubbo-based magistrate who presided over 25 Indigenous circle sentencing cases in Walgett said only one person had since reoffended.

Circle sentencing is a method in which Aboriginal offenders are sentenced through a discussion involving local elders, family members and sometimes victims. 

Magistrate Claire Girotto worked for several years on the Dubbo and Walgett circuit and is calling on the program to be expanded in New South Wales, after a study supported her experience that participants had better outcomes. 

"I'm a big fan of it," Ms Girotto said.

She said the process allowed offenders to take ownership of their crimes and their futures.
