  1. at the cat pic they selected to attach to the article http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/cats-australia-kill-1-million-birds-day-article-1.3543955 Cats in Australia kill over 1 million birds a day BY CONSTANCE GIBBS NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Thursday, October 5, 2017, 6:17 PM Cats in Australia have swallowed many, many canaries. Over a million birds are eaten a day by hungry cats — both feral and pets. A study in the journal Biological Conservationsays that cats are on a killing spree, wiping out over 300 million birds in Australia annually. This certainly sounds like a lot, until realizing that there are about 11 billion native birds in the country, making cat kills only about 4% of the population. And in the United States, cats kill over 2.4 billion birds per year. So Australia’s getting off easy. But scientists are still worried. Cats are killing about 71 threatened species of bird in the country. Here in the states, cats have contributed to the extinction of 33 species of bird. Australia has committed more than $23 million toward reducing cats’ impact on bird populations, including beginning construction on “cat free zones” to allow native birds on the threat of extinction some peace of mind. Australia’s animals are known for overtaking the people. Rabbits are a well-documented menace, kangaroos outnumber the population 2:1 and magpie swooping season happens every September, where people must protect their property — and their necks — from low-flying magpies.
  2. This is 16-year-old Australian teenager Sam Kanizay. On Saturday, he decided to cool off after football with a quick dip in the ocean at Dendy Street Beach in Brighton (a suburb in Melbourne). After about half an hour in the water Sam's legs felt numb and tingly but he assumed it was from playing sport. But when he emerged from the sea he noticed his legs were covered in blood.
  3. Christian couple threaten to divorce in protest against same-sex marriage June 10, 2015 Australian Nick Jensen says that if same-sex marriage is introduced, he and his wife will divorce. Writing in the Canberra CityNews, Mr Jensen says he will continue to live with his wife, Sarah, and their children – and they will still consider themselves married. But they will no longer be legally married. He wrote: “Marriage is the union of a man and a woman before a community in the sight of God. And marriage of any couple is important to God regardless of whether that couple recognises God’s involvement or authority in it. “If our federal parliament votes to change the timeless and organic definition of marriage later on this year, it will have moved against the fundamental and foundational building block of Australian society and, indeed, human culture everywhere. “Indeed, it raises a red flag when a government decides it is not content only having sovereignty over land, taxes and the military — but ‘words’ themselves. “This is why we are willing to divorce. By changing the definition of marriage, ‘marriage’ will, in years to come, have an altogether different sense and purpose.” Mr Jensen works for the American Christian Lobby, who campaign against same-sex marriage. Canberra CityNews has faced a backlash from Facebook fans for publishing Mr Jensen’s article – with many saying the magazine should be “ashamed” to give such few views a platform. One reader said: “What a stupid article, you may as well have written about how two crazy people still believe the world is flat. Geez. Homophobic propaganda.” Editor Ian Meikle told news.com.au: “The article does not reflect the opinion of the paper. It’s an unusual love story, and what would life be if people didn’t have different ways of life.” In the ongoing debate on same-sex marriage in Australia, the first National MP said yesterday he would vote in favour.
  4. Penis-Shaped Neckline Livens Up Natarsha Belling's News Report Huffington Post UK | By Sara C Nelson Posted: 16/03/2015 12:58 GMT It shouldn’t happen to a news reader… but it does and it did. Anchor Natarsha Belling became a viral internet star this weekend, but it wasn’t for her segment on Australia’s Ten Eyewitness News. Instead, Belling’s notoriety came after some wags remarked that the neckline of her jacket somewhat resembled the shape of male genitalia. A screengrab of the 39-year-old swiftly appeared on the UNILAD Facebook page with the apt caption: “Once you see it, you cannot unsee it…”
