Domestic violence may take place in the home but research commissioned by the national anti-violence organisation, Our Watch, has found the workplace can be crucial in helping to prevent and reduce that violence.

The report finds that businesses with strong gender equity and anti-discrimination programs can change the behaviour of abusers.

An early intervention program targeted at children struggling to read may not be delivering the results its advocates promise.

Reading Recovery has been around since the 1970s, but its effectiveness is increasingly being called into doubt.

If you fail a Mobile Alcohol or Drug test your licence can be suspended - but in the case of cannabis, do we have the right test?

Recently, Lismore magistrate David Heilpern described the current testing a 'mystery and uncertain-by-design', after finding a man who tested positive for THC (nine days after smoking a joint) not guilty.

Clearly, they do not, judging by the amount of times charges have been dropped. Perhaps a test for anger or stupidity would be better, as they cause far more accidents than someone on cannabis.

South Africa's President Jacob Zuma has agreed to repay more than $20 million of public money he used to upgrade his private residence.

The upgrades, valued in 2014 at 216 million rand (then $24 million) have become a symbol of alleged corruption and greed within the African National Congress (ANC) government.

Leon Rakai was hoping to capture images of the endangered red-tailed phascogale when he happened upon an angry feral cat, trapped in a wire cage.

The resulting photograph won Mr Rakai the title of Australian Geographic's 2015 ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year Award, an award he was happy with, but second to the joy earned from his work conserving wildlife.

Yes but they have their origins from the domestic cat. People who have them and let them have endless litters and generally don't care about them. Kill all the feral cats you you want but it will keep growing unless all cats are desexed. Look at the problem with wild dogs. Feral people are responsible for feral cats.

A Riverina farmer has captured what appears to be nature's version of a David and Goliath battle.

The photo, taken over the weekend, shows a daddy-long-legs spider stringing up its prey — a lethal brown snake.

The CSIRO's chief says the backlash from his decision to restructure the organisation has made him feel like an "early climate scientist in the '70s fighting against the oil lobby" and that there is so much emotion in the debate it almost "sounds more like religion than science".

A breastfeeding mother has had an emotional encounter with two orangutans at Melbourne Zoo.

Her 13-week-old son Eli was hungry so she walked around the corner to breastfeed him in private, when two orangutans came over to watch.
