Sydney’s state Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced that the state is on track to reach 70% vaccination rate today
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says that 70% of her state will have their first vaccination by the end of today.
This comes as Sydney and New South Wales recorded 1,288 new Covid cases over the past 24 hours.
The premier says:
“Now we’ve hit 70% first dose across the state, we have some greater flexibility of looking at how we can ease the burden of citizens”.
She also flagged that at an 80% full vaccination rate, she wants to open New South Wales up to international travel
Berejiklian said that the state’s “outstanding achievement” has allowed her to ease all one-hour daily exercise restrictions. The restrictions had been put in place across twelve hotspot areas across the state.
“I want to remind citizens that 70 per cent double-dose will be different to what we’re experiencing today,” she said.
“70 per cent double-dose vaccination will allow us to do the things we’ve all been missing. It allows us to interact with one another safely.
“But again I want to stress this, the privileges that will extend at 70 per cent double-dose are only for those who are double vaccinated. So get vaccinated now.”
Andrew Tate supports Russell Brand amid assault claims
British actor and former kickboxing world champion Andrew Tate has joined forces with Tesla CEO Elon Musk to express their support for actor Russell Brand, who is currently facing sexual assault allegations.
Tate and Musk both took to their respective social media platforms to share their views on the matter, igniting a debate on the importance of due process and the presumption of innocence.
The allegations against Brand surfaced last week, leading to a significant media frenzy.
The actor, known for his roles in popular films and his outspoken political views, vehemently denies the accusations. In a series of tweets, Tate stated, “It’s crucial that we remember the principle of ‘innocent until proven guilty’ in cases like these. Rushing to judgment can have severe consequences for all parties involved.”
Elon Musk, a vocal advocate for justice reform and individual rights, echoed Tate’s sentiments. He tweeted, “We must ensure that justice is served fairly, and that includes affording Russell Brand the same rights as anyone else. Let the legal process run its course.”
The support from Tate and Musk has sparked a wider conversation about the complexities of handling such allegations in the public eye. Many of their followers have praised their commitment to due process, while others argue that supporting the alleged victim is equally important.
Andrew Tate and Elon Musk’s public support for Russell Brand has brought the issue of sexual assault allegations and the presumption of innocence to the forefront of public discourse. The case serves as a reminder of the importance of a fair legal process and the potential consequences of rushing to judgment.
Can China’s trading partners keep relying on it for growth?
China’s growth over the past few decades has lifted many of its largest trading partners. But as it begins to slow, can those countries rely on it to save them from recession?
China has begun lifting tariffs on key agricultural products, sending the exports of its trading partners to record highs.
Australian agricultural exports in 2022-23 reached a record high, driven by strong demand from China as trade tensions eased.
The Rural Bank’s report revealed a robust winter crop contributed to a significant increase, with agricultural exports totaling $79.9 billion, marking an 18% year-on-year rise and the third consecutive year of growth.
All top 13 export markets saw year-on-year growth, with 12 of them reaching record levels.
But as the world’s second largest economy begins to slump, what will happen to so many of the world’s economies that have grown alongside the behemoth?
Sam Bankman-Fried’s attempt to be released from jail is denied
Sam Bankman-Fried’s request for immediate release from a Brooklyn jail to better prepare for his upcoming criminal trial, set to commence in less than a month, regarding the collapse of his FTX cryptocurrency exchange, was rejected.
While the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan denied Bankman-Fried’s plea, it did announce its intention to refer the matter to the next available three-judge panel for further consideration.
A spokesperson for Bankman-Fried declined to provide a comment on the development.
US District Judge Lewis Kaplan had revoked Bankman-Fried’s $250 million bail on August 11, alleging that the former billionaire had likely tampered with witnesses on at least two occasions.
Bankman-Fried swiftly appealed this decision, contending that he would be unable to adequately prepare for his scheduled trial on October 3rd while incarcerated.
Prosecutors have accused Bankman-Fried of embezzling billions from FTX customer funds to cover losses at Alameda Research, his hedge fund.
Bankman-Fried’s incarceration followed his sharing of personal writings by Caroline Ellison, Alameda’s former chief executive and his former romantic partner, with a New York Times reporter. He has pleaded not guilty to fraud and conspiracy charges, arguing that he shared Ellison’s writings to protect his reputation, rather than to intimidate her.
In court documents filed on Tuesday, Bankman-Fried’s legal team asserted that the arrangement allowing him several hours a day to review evidence on a laptop at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn had proven inadequate. They cited an instance where he lost over four hours due to a prisoner count and additional time over the weekend.
The US Attorney’s office in Manhattan confirmed that the jail had authorized Bankman-Fried’s acquisition of a second laptop.
