Anthony Albanese sworn in as Australia’s 31st Prime Minister



Labor Party Leader Anthony Albanese is Australia’s new prime minister, marking the end of almost a decade’s rule for the conservative coalition

In a ceremony at Government House in Canberra, Albanese took an oath to “well and truly serve the Commonwealth of Australia”.

It was all officiated by Governor-General David Hurley, with MP Richard Marles sworn in as deputy PM and senator Penny Wong becoming foreign minister.

The appointment of Wong marks the first occasion a person born outside of Australia has held the role.

It comes just hours before Albanese and his delegation will travel to Tokyo for an international leaders’ summit.

The rest of the ministry will be sworn in when the prime minister returns from the high-stakes talks.

Outgoing Prime Minister Scott Morrison conceded defeat on Saturday night and said he would also be stepping down as leader of his centre-right Liberal Party.

“I’ve always believed in Australians and their judgement and I’ve always been prepared to accept their verdicts and tonight they have delivered their verdict and I congratulate Anthony Albanese.”

Partial election results showed independents gaining seats in the lower chamber of parliament.

The so-called “teal independents” with mostly women, who campaigned for more action on climate change, integrity and gender equality toppled the Liberal party in several urban strongholds.

And a strong showing from the left-wing Greens Party ate into Labor’s vote share in many seats.

The makeup of the new parliament looks set to be much less climate-sceptic than the one that supported Morrison’s pro-coal mining administration.

At Sydney’s popular Bondi beach, Australians were upbeat about action on climate change under the country’s new leadership:

“Lovely to see the independents, I think. Real change and a step forward for the environment.”

“If we can get action on climate change, then that’s going to be quite exciting.”

It’s still unclear whether the Labor party will govern with a majority or with the help of some independents or Greens.

Labor is still several seats short of winning more than half the seats in the lower house, with about a dozen electorates deemed too close to call.

Official results could be several days away, with the counting of a record 2.7 million postal votes to begin Sunday afternoon.

Boston Dynamics’ electric marvel or robot contortionist?



Boston Dynamics has recently unveiled its latest creation, the electric Atlas robot, boasting enhanced agility and strength.

However, with its uncanny ability to contort and rise from the ground with an almost eerie grace, one might wonder if we’re witnessing the birth of the world’s first robot contortionist.

As this technological marvel flaunts its capabilities, one can’t help but ponder if we’re on the brink of a future where household chores will be effortlessly handled by robots moving like a fusion of ballet dancers and horror movie monsters.

With its cadaver-like movements and illuminated head, it’s hard not to speculate whether Atlas is destined to revolutionise robotics or simply rehearsing for a techno-horror rendition of The Nutcracker. As Boston Dynamics continues to push the boundaries of robotics, the line between science fiction and reality becomes increasingly blurred.

The Coffee confusion causing health concerns



As the morning sun peeks through the curtains, many reach for that familiar brew, kickstarting their day with a comforting cup of coffee.

It’s a ritual ingrained in cultures worldwide, offering a jolt of energy to combat the grogginess of dawn.

But when is the optimal time for that caffeine fix? According to registered dietitian Anthony DiMarino, RD, LD, the answer isn’t crystal clear.

Some experts suggest delaying that first sip until mid-morning or later. However, DiMarino reassures coffee lovers that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this dilemma.

Meanwhile, the science behind coffee production unveils fascinating insights into its instant variant. Whether produced through freeze-drying or spray-drying methods, instant coffee offers convenience without sacrificing flavor.

Yet, beyond convenience, recent studies delve deeper into coffee’s impact on our bodies. Research exploring the acute effects of decaffeinated versus caffeinated coffee reveals intriguing findings on reaction time, mood, and skeletal muscle strength.

Moreover, investigations into the gut microbiome shed light on coffee’s influence on liver cirrhosis patients. A study analyzing the duodenal microbiome in this population found correlations between coffee consumption and microbial richness and evenness.

So, as you sip your coffee and ponder the day ahead, consider not just the flavour in your cup but also the subtle impacts it may have on your body and mind.
