This could be relevant for people living with and working teens. It raises some concerns about a book/series entitled 13 Reasons Why . 'This series graphically details teenage sexual assault, bullying, and suicide. The main character tragically dies by suicide.'

It'd be great if this wasn't newsworthy, if it was so common as to be "oh yeah, another one", but it isn't, and is well worth celebrating.

The old sign at the William Creek Hotel has seen better days. The ones along the Oodnadatta Track are badly faded - I hope they survive the extensive roadworks and don't succumb to the thing called progress.

Other world leaders (such as our own Mal Turnbull and the LNP) are equally as complicit, showing no moral backbone and no integrity with their fawning, forelock tugging submission to the powerful interests unravelling a once halfway decent nation.

Conveniently overlooking the fact that many young people (and older ones as well) aren't able to enjoy full time employment no matter how well qualified, how experienced, and no matter how many time consuming, excellent applications they submit, (which receive no response) or how passionate they are.

"you can easily earn six figures by picking the right university degree" Really? Everyone? Without any interest or aptitude for the course? Yeah, and the unicorn of happiness makes every wish come true. And of course we all have that perfect crystal ball that lets us know which course is going to be flavour of the month in 4-5 years time. How about the sustainability graduates who studied hard, didn't carouse, didn't travel, flat out head-down, bum-up, fabulous grades, solid work ethic and taa daa, change of government and sustainability, enviro, climate related careers are on the nose. Should they have foreseen that eventuality when they chose relevant subjects at the end of year 10?

Short term contracts, underemployment, rolling contracts, are common in many sectors which used to be deemed secure. This has more impact on saving than an occasional treat in what for many is a really shitty work environment.

Being explicitly told there are others keen to replace you and feeling irrelevant and unvalued is very common in jobs which used to be stable. Sure some young people are slack and on their phones constantly - but I seem to recall photos of our extremely well paid parliamentarians snoozing, appearing sozzled, writing Christmas Cards and tapping on their phones while they're supposedly working, so young folk have some pretty influential role models setting that standard.

There's also the convenient overlooking of the value of contacts. Surprise, surprise, not everyone has them. https://imgur.com/t/storytime/j7v8Uhy

"Probyn, like his predecessor, Chris Uhlmann, has got into the nasty habit of parroting fossil fuel myths as if they are fact. They’ve become obsessed with concepts such as “synchronous” generation and “baseload”, using them to slap down wind and solar without really understanding why or how.

This is a problem for ABC viewers because they are not getting a clear and unbiased picture of energy issues. A complex subject is being poorly served . Labor is accused by Probyn of being a “slave” to wind and solar ideology, while Uhlmann thinks more wind and solar will lead to a national blackout.

Last night, Probyn tried to wrap up the gas talks, led by prime minister Malcolm Turnbull, and the push into battery storage into one big omnibus piece. But then he got diverted by his own prejudice, or misconceptions."

Emotive words, chosen to sway opinion. Not good +ABC Australia not good at all. "Where’s the ABC Fact Check department when you need it? Ah, that’s right, it’s closed. And that’s a pity, because it would be kept mighty busy by some of the recent editorialising by Andrew Probyn, the 7.30 Report’s new political editor."
