Many Australians do not believe scientists when it comes to climate change. Is it possible to change their minds? We ask some of Australia's best and brightest spinners (including the teams behind AAMI's Rhonda ads and the Kevin07 campaign)  how they'd persuade the public.

Many Australians do not believe the scientists on climate change. We've asked some of the country's brightest advertising brains how to sell the message to a sceptical public.

If you need two actors to convince you of the dangers of climate change, instead of the world's most leading climatologists, then you've never had a brain or any logical thought to begin with.

Today is believed to be William Shakespeare's birthday, and the Daily Review team have complied a list of the best (and worst) of the Bard on film.

April 23 is believed to be William Shakespeare’s birthday, and 2014 marks his 450th. During that time his 40 or so plays (no-one can be entirely sure of the exact figure) have been honoured in countless productions and adaptations for stage, film, radio and television. Many have been sublime, some ridiculous and others have sullied Shakespeare’s legacy,…

For whom the (wedding) bell tolls: haven't the denizens of Westeros figured out that weddings are a bad idea? Jacob Robinson reviews the latest episode of Game of Thrones. Spoilers abound, obviously.

For whom the wedding bell tolls… Why would anyone in Westeros ever want to get married again? In the very first episodes of Game of Thrones we were informed that a Dothraki wedding with less than three deaths was considered a dull affair, and their Westerosi counterparts are certainly developing a similar perspective of nuptials.…

Don't dismiss The Hunger Games as kid's stuff. It's a window into our dystopian present, writes Guy Rundle.

The current crop of young adult novels are more about the oppression of a chronic underclass than vampires. We envision ourselves the heroine – plucky, yes, but facing almost insurmountable odds and a class structure beyond our control. Abnegation wear grey clothes, no makeup or decoration, never look in mirrors. They reject selfish action; all…

Cracked turbine blades, poorly designed software and a cost blowout of half a trillion dollars. That's what happened when the US Department of Defence committed to buying the same F-35 Joint Strike Fighter planes Tony Abbott has ordered for the RAAF. Bernard Keane explains:

+Fred Knurks It's the price that Australian PMs traditionally pay for the privilege of photo-ops in which they get to orally-gratify American presidents.

Barry O’Farrell’s premiership has been brought to an end by a bizarre lapse in memory, but will politicians realise their close relations with business are the real problem?

A big Crikey list of senior Liberals who are also senior lobbyists or big in business would be most enlightening. US ordinary taxpayer / consumer types don't have a chance

I leap onto the monitor wedge, perch precariously and tear into a guitar solo, which blasts out of the 50,000 watt PA. 8,000 punters put their hands in the air. I am in my mid 50s. Will my back hold out? Will my earplugs stay in? Why am I doing this? Why are we all…
