Around the world, innovators and researchers are trying to transform our roads from blank expanses of bitumen into something more.

From highways that know whether they’re slippery or safe to bike paths that generate green energy, Antony Funnell takes a look at the smart roads of the future.

How would you use technology to improve our roads?

There's been fresh warnings about the dangers of shift work from a leading sleep researcher in the UK, and doctors say that the risks are greatest for workers responsible for life and death decisions.

Calls for shift workers to regularly monitor both their physical and mental health have been renewed.

Can shift work impact an individual's overall wellbeing?

Retirement is fucken tough right?

Years in the making, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is closer than ever to being a reality, one which the Australian Government argues would usher in a new era of prosperity for our exporters.

But there's also a political risk for the Coalition, which is facing an increasingly intense campaign from those who oppose the deal.

An American dentist has expressed regret for killing a much-loved Zimbabwean lion called Cecil, explaining he was relying on his guides "to ensure a legal hunt".

Walter Palmer has come under fierce criticism after he was named as the hunter who killed Cecil, amid allegations it took the lion 40 hours to die.

No one talks about these kills being the way these parks make money and breed/raise more endangered animals though.

New South Wales Premier Mike Baird wants an increase to Australia's goods and services tax (GST) to help state and territory governments meet the increasing costs of healthcare.

Do Australians pay less GST than people in other OECD nations?  

ABC Fact Check | http://ab.co/1I38D2w
Mike Baird says Australia's rate of GST is 'right down the bottom' of OECD nations, and that the average rate of GST is closer to 20 per cent. ABC Fact Check investigates.

conditioning +Thys Meintjes .. the liberal party has effectively shut down carbon tax on the coal and power companys and the mining tax from his gold , iron and nickel buddies , and shifted the burden straight onto the people ..with  heaviest % onto the lowest earning and most struggling families and pensioners
i hope all the small business work it out that for those already spending all of the weekly income just to live at the moment will have to find an extra 5% to pay for the extra GST
 ( which will undoubtedly be also on food , wait and see ) 

and that, for the average pensioner couple
.. is about $35 each fortnight each
 that they will not be treating themselves to for lunch or coffee
.. for most..that one time a fortnight they may actually go out and treat themselves ..

so look around your coffee or fish chip shop ..look at the grey heads
 and ask yourself , what will you do when a SUBSTANTIAL portion of your customers no longer arrive

Most keen cyclists would know the pain of cars blocking designated bike lanes, but not many would be able to fix the problem like this man.

A burly cyclist, apparently fed up with a car encroaching on the bike lane, grabbed the back of the offending car and single-handedly lifted it out of the way in a Brazilian YouTube video.

The man then hopped back onto his bike and cycled away.

I'm not confused at all about the type of cyclists behaviour we all encounter regularly.
I'm just not so PC inclined as to diminish the importance of angry cycling enthusiasm that some feel entitled to wage on others in issues like this.

This guy is no typical looking cycling type but he manages to reflect the same overall vibe some cyclists give off when sharing road space with others.
Unrefined, impatient and full of asinine reasons to justify idiotic behaviour during his little bike ride.
To each their own.

Bronwyn Bishop's use of travel entitlements has been labelled a soap opera by the Federal Opposition.

With Parliament returning in just over a week, the issue is still causing problems for the Government, with some of Ms Bishop's senior colleagues sounding uncomfortable about the revelations.
