Transgender footballer Caroline Layt says LGBTI equality in sport hasn't progressed in a decade

Transgender footballer Caroline Layt says LGBTI equality in sport hasn't progressed in a decade

2017-10-19 10:10:47, smh.com.au

Transgender woman and former New South Wales rugby league representative Caroline Layt says support for the LGBTI community in sport has failed to progress over the past decade. Layt transitioned in 1995 and then played in Sydney's rugby league and rugby union competitions and was picked for representative honours in both, including NSW's 2007 State of Origin campaign. A decade later and Layt said it was "really disappointing" to see transgender footballer Hannah Mouncey barred from entering the AFLW draft on Wednesday

Four months ago he lay sleeping on his dad's chest, a newborn with his tiny head cuddled up against the man's neck.

Archbishop Fisher's views stop at church door

Archbishop Fisher's views stop at church door

2017-10-16 15:17:21, smh.com.au

I was amused by Archbishop Anthony Fisher's plea for the government to stay out of Catholics' bedrooms ("Sydney's archbishop preaches 'no' vote in Mass", October 16). How could it get in for heaven's sake? There's no room. The church has been clogging up the space for centuries. If Fisher's homily has been reported correctly, then as a Catholic, I am embarrassed

Whales and dolphins live in complex "societies" that mimic those of human populations, scientists say. In the first study of its kind, researchers gathered information about brain size and social behaviour from 90 species of dolphins, whales and porpoises. They found "overwhelming" evidence that cetaceans possess sophisticated cultural traits similar to those seen in human societies. The long list of shared characteristics included working together for mutual benefit, teaching tool use, co-operative hunting, and communicating using complex vocalisations with regional "dialects"

Melbourne’s southwest is Australia’s best for home price growth

2017-10-18 22:14:49, heraldsun.com.au

MELBOURNE’S southwest — comprising affordable hot spots Hoppers Crossing and Point Cook — has easily been the nation’s best performing region for property price growth in the past year. This is a finding of SQM Research’s latest Housing Boom and Bust report, which also tipped another strong year for Melbourne’s property market in 2018 — even if interest rates rise. Report author and SQM managing director Louis Christopher said dwelling prices, taking into account both houses and units, soared 42 per cent in the city’s southwest in the year to September
