Multiple shootings occur in North Carolina & Washington D.C.



Four people have died in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, while one is dead in a shooting at a funeral home in Washington D.C.

Police say four people have been killed after a shooting in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

According to a neighbour, the shooting happened in a quiet street inside a house occupied by a mother and three children.

Meanwhile in Washington D.C., one man has died and three other people have been hurt in a shooting at a funeral home.

Several people who were standing in the block after the funeral were apparently targeted, but police don’t yet know why.

Police are still working on investigating both shootings.

This comes just a day after a mass shooting occurred at a major Bank in Louisville Kentucky.

At least five people are dead, as well as the gunman, and several others were hurt.

The five dead were colleagues of the gunman who was in his mid-20s.

A doctor who is treating the Louisville victims, begged lawmakers to do something about gun violence in the country.

“I’m weary. There’s only so many times you can walk in the room and tell someone they’re not coming home tomorrow,” Dr. Jason Smith told reporters.

“I would simply ask you to do something. Because doing nothing, which is what we have been doing, is not working.”

Mayor of Louisville, Craig Greenberg, mimicked the doctor’s message in a press conference.

“Change our state law to let Louisville make its own decisions about reducing illegal guns on our streets & gun violence that is killing far too many people,” he said.

What Australia can learn from NZ’s supermarket inquiry



Coles and Woolworths, two of Australia’s largest supermarket chains, are about to face a Senate inquiry that aims to scrutinise their market dominance and business practices.

The inquiry’s parallels with a past New Zealand investigation highlight the growing concern over the duopoly’s impact on consumers and smaller businesses.

The Senate inquiry, set to begin next month, comes as a response to mounting public pressure and allegations of anti-competitive behavior in the grocery sector.

New Zealand example

Similar concerns led New Zealand to conduct its own inquiry into the supermarket industry back in 2019, resulting in recommendations for increased regulation and transparency.

The central question here is whether Coles and Woolworths wield too much power in the Australian market, potentially stifling competition and limiting choices for consumers.

With the New Zealand example as a cautionary tale, many are wondering if this inquiry will result in meaningful changes to the Australian grocery landscape.

Elon Musk: Nikki Haley’s ‘campaign is dead’



Elon Musk has thrown a verbal jab at former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, declaring her political campaign as “dead” on X.

The unexpected comment from the Tesla and SpaceX CEO has ignited a new wave of discussion within the political sphere, leaving many wondering about the implications for Haley’s political future.

In a tweet that garnered significant attention, Musk criticized Haley’s recent policy stance, writing, “Nikki Haley’s campaign is dead on arrival if she continues to ignore the urgency of climate change.

We need leaders who prioritize the planet’s future.” The tech mogul’s remarks come as Haley, a prominent Republican figure, has been exploring the possibility of running for president in the upcoming election cycle.

Musk’s statement has reignited the debate over climate change within the Republican Party, with many conservatives emphasizing economic interests over environmental concerns.

This raises questions about whether Musk’s endorsement or critique could influence the GOP’s stance on climate issues and potentially impact the 2024 presidential race.
