In Australia, the rights of convicted sex offenders seem to take precedence over victims' rights. Especially with paedophiles. Serial sex offenders have their names, photos and addresses, suppressed by the courts on release.
Unlike Megan's Law in the United States, communities have no knowledge as to who they are or where they are. A public register is a right and a national duty that is long overdue.

Civet cats — solitary wild animals — are being seized from their natural habitat, shoved into barren cages, all so some people can enjoy a cup of Kopi Luwak, the world's most expensive coffee.
The legend surrounding the production and sale of Kopi Luwak, or civet coffee, is huge. Originally civets would have naturally selected, digested and excreted coffee cherries, which made — in some circles — a...

The causes of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) are complex and patterns differ among countries and regions. For example, in some areas the commercial sexual exploitation of children is clearly related to foreign child sex tourism, in others it is associated with the local demand. In most countries, girls represent 80 to 90% of the victims, although in some places boys predominate.
As is the case for other worst...

There are media groups SPENDING money that has been donated to help Haiti earthquake victims (and we're talking millions of dollars) to advertise fund donations for Haiti. Thing is everybody in the Western Hemisphere knows what happened in Haiti, and if you don't well you are deaf, dumb, and blind. So why spend the extra money to advertise this tragedy when the money could be going to help the...

I know I'm not the only person tired of having my auto insurance rate based on my credit score. For years the government has allowed insurance companies to use our credit scores as a basis for car insurance. Not only is this insulting (even for someone like myself who has fairly good credit) but it has no basis in the auto insurance realm. Auto insurance should be based primarily on driving record, not excluding tickets removed by those...

Clean production is needed now! So many companies have been moving to China just to avoid production costs in producing clean products that it is overwhelming! The environmental hazard protection in China is devastatingly lower than in the United States which makes it cheaper and easier for companies to manufacture products. However with every teaspoon of spilled oil, or little bit of pollution added to the air our world dies a little.
