The House of Reps vs The Senate | Politics Explained
 
06:30
What's the difference between the lower house and upper house (well, other than the green and red)? ►► How do your views compare to the parties’ policies? Find out with Vote Compass: https://votecompass.abc.net.au In Australia we have a bicameral system — the Senate and the House of Representatives. Members of the House represent a geographic area — known as electorates — which match up with population spread. The Senate, however, represents states or territories. The number of Senators is spread equally across the country, giving less populated states an edge. There are also a lot of crossbench and minor party senators (such as the Greens and One Nation) because of the Senate's voting system, known as proportional representation, which means people who receive very few primary votes can still be elected based on preferences.

In 1965 this scientist tried to turn conventional science on its head. Among R Foster’s theories was that the moon was in fact made of plasma, not rock, and that landing on it would not be possible. Mr Foster claimed that once his ‘profound and decisive’ investigations were proven, a complete re-investigation of the laws of nature would be necessary. The ABC has been unable to confirm Mr Foster’s identity beyond the entry in the production notebook from 1965: “People – Int Tasmanian Professor (FOSTER)”.

Lake Eyre’s biggest flood in nearly 50 years | 7.30

The waters that devastated northern Queensland earlier this year are resurrecting the country’s parched central deserts, notably the Lake Eyre basin. It’s being called a ‘special flood’, possibly the biggest to make its way through Lake Eyre in nearly half a century. Environmentalists say the Lake Eyre Basin is becoming a last refuge for wildlife as irrigation, dams and diversions choke the life out of the once mighty Murray Darling. Regional correspondent Dominique Schwartz and cameraman Ben Deacon travelled through the heart of Australia for this special report.

In the early years of Four Corners, there was a recurring ‘Voice of the People’ segment in which a reporter – usually Keith Smith, who was well known for his ability to talk to just about anyone – went out into the streets to ask regular Australians a particular question. In this segment from September 30th, 1961, Keith asks the denizens of Bondi Junction and Bondi Beach whether they think the bikini should be banned. At that time, there were regulations about how skimpy the controversial bikini swimsuit could be, and beach inspectors roved the sands to enforce the code.

“Why are you driving on the wrong side of the road?” Watch more from the Did You Know? series ►► https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLn2RjxYNpcawct77myxG-2JGptju1-Hx0 About two-thirds of countries drive on the right side. So why don’t countries that drive on the left just switch over? Left-hand side traffic was actually the worldwide norm for a long time, and the split boils down to two main factors – the fact that most people are right-handed, and the fact that countries used different forms of transportation as formalised road rules began to emerge. The invention of cars and the placement of steering wheels influenced countries to switch over to the right — as recently as 1967 for Sweden.

When the wave breaks there, don't be here: The story of Laurie Towner
 
08:29
By Marcus Thompson Affectionately known as the ‘big three’ the surf industry’s biggest players Rip Curl (Torquay, Vic), Billabong (Gold Coast, Qld) Quiksilver (Torquay, Vic) all have their roots in Australia. The companies grew from the back of cars and garages, servicing a small but growing surf population during the 1960s and early 1970s with clothes and surf hardware. By the late 1970s surf culture had become a global phenomenon and the fascination surrounding surf culture led to unprecedented growth. By the late 1990s the industry’s value was estimated at $10 billion. Fast forward to the late naughties, the industry bubble was ready to burst. The global financial crisis of 2008, an over-saturation of surf culture in the marketplace and the rise of online retailers all contributed to the downfall. For core surfers the industry had lost its way. It was brought to its knees and is yet to recover. As in most cases when industries fail, those who lose their jobs adapt their skill set and apply their tools to a new industry. But for the surfers whose job it was to surf to market the multi-billion dollar industry, the job openings were slim. There isn’t a big market for surfing critical, high-risk mountains of moving water outside the surf industry. One surfer who was riding the wave and was plunged into the depths as the industry fell apart is Laurie Towner, regarded by many as the greatest big wave surfer on the planet. Laurie, like many former pro surfers works a trade and surfs between shifts.

Is time travel possible? Brian Cox and Nalini Joshi offer their views | Q & A
 
06:07
A questioner on ABC's Q&A asks whether it is possible for a person who invents a time machine in the future to travel back in time and show us how to make one. Panelists Nalini Joshi and Professor Brian Cox give their views. More science here: https://www.youtube.com/user/ABCTVCatalyst More Q&A here: https://www.youtube.com/user/abcqanda Brian Cox says you can't travel into the past, but Nalini Joshi disagrees. "Well, I don't know about whether there's an arrow that prevents you from going to the past or only into the future but, mathematically, I think that there are many, many possible answers to these questions. If I may? You know, if you take just a three dimensional cube and you look at one corner of this three-dimensional cube and then you compress one corner down to the diagonally opposite corner, then what you do is you flatten the cube and it becomes a hexagon. If you take that structure, which is hexagonally symmetric, it turns out that these types of symmetries are in crystals and there are a very knew few number of these regular symmetries that are exhibited in crystals in two dimensions. Now, if you think about increasing the number of dimensions, now go to three, four, five, six, presto, around 7 and 8 there are exceptional new structures that come up, that only exist when you get to 7 and 8 and maybe 9 dimensions."
