The divided states of Australia

Published

on

Social media has erupted with many labelling Australia as a “divided nation”

Western Australia is set to keep its hard border up to easter states until early 2022, with the Premier of WA, Mark McGowan hoping to see vaccination rates hit 90% before reopening.

Premier Mark McGowan wants to see vaccination rates of between 80 and 90 per cent before setting a date to allow NSW, Victoria and the ACT back into the state.

“We have opened at various points of time along this road and I expect we will open again once we get to very high levels of vaccination”

The state leader told a local media firm.

The Premier of the western state stated that he doubted eastern states would open to the west if the COVID scenario was roles reversed.

“Imagine if it was the other way around and Western Australia was the infected case with thousands of cases and NSW had none, or Victoria has none – would they really want to open to us? No.

In Western Australia, 34.2 per cent of people aged 16 and older are double dosed.

The rate in Queensland is 34.5 per cent, while the leading jurisdiction is the ACT on 45.9 per cent.

The Western Australian premier has vowed that he will continue to “do all that he can” to keep his state safe and free of COVID-19.

Over on Australia’s east coast, NSW, Victoria and the ACT remain in lockdown as the Delta variant continues to spread across eastern states.

Published

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured

American home prices are rising at faster pace now than in the last 20-years.

A recent analysis reveals a jaw dropping surge in the cost of American homes.

Since the start of 2020, U.S. home prices have surged 47% easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

On top of that, home price growth so far this decade is on the verge of surpassing all the growth seen in the 2000s.

Many experts believe this decade’s housing market frenzy was ignited by a perfect storm — the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggering an unprecedented rush among buyers.
