ASIO has kept a file on Frank Moorhouse since he was seventeen. Now Frank has decided it is time to report on ASIO. This year ASIO has extended its surveillance powers, made the issuing of warrants easier and limited the freedom of journalists. At a time when the government has raised the terrorist alert level to 'high' we are facing the question of what degree of terrorist threat we are prepared to endure so as to retain freedoms of expression and what might loosely be called the 'traditional privacies'. The paradox is an old one: is a secret agency needed for our safety as a democracy? If so, how does a democracy manage a secret agency without losing control of it? What constitutes an offence against national security? And what are we to make of WikiLeaks and socially conscious hackers and whistleblowers? Do we need a renewal of the bargain between the citizen and the secret agencies, as unreliable as it may be, as we all go into the glare and the maze of controlled and uncontrollable data collection and its consequences?We are entering a new era, where nothing can be assumed to be private, especially at the governmental level. More than ever before, our future is unforeseeable, but if in the unforeseeable we see a glimmer of dangerous things, perhaps we should remember that positive things can also be unforeseeable.

Engagement in universal design is on the increase worldwide as practitioners and researchers explore creative and desirable solutions to shape the future of universal design products and practices. This book is a collection of the papers presented at UD2014, the International Conference on Universal Design, held in Lund, Sweden, in June 2014.

Terror in Australia: Workers' Paradise Lost, by veteran journalist John Stapleton, is a beautifully written snapshot of a pivotal turning point in the history of the so-called Lucky Country. This book is a sidewinding missile into the heart of Australian hypocrisy. In 2015 there were well attended Reclaim Australia demonstrations in every major capital city, all protesting what the demonstrators saw as the growing Islamisation of Australia, along with countering anti-racism demonstrations. There were frequent violent clashes, hundreds of police were forced to form lines separating the demonstrators in Sydney and Melbourne, there were a significant number of arrests and injuries, and dozens of people were treated for the effects of capsicum spray. The terror alert was at its highest level ever, the country was engaged in an unpopular and discredited war in Iraq and Syria, and relations between the government and an increasingly radicalised Muslim minority had broken down. Despite the billions being spent on national security, authorities believed another terrorist attack was inevitable. A demoralised population, saddled with a history of grotesque overregulation, turned inwards, increasingly questioning the failed social creeds of the past. On the streets once vibrant entertainment districts were desolate, while closed and shuttered shops became a characteristic of many suburbs. An optimistic, freedom loving country with an irreverent, larrikin culture and a wildly optimistic view of its place in the world lost faith in its own story. Well documented, switching through multiple points of view, Terror in Australia: Workers' Paradise Lost is a sometimes frightening, sometimes intensely lyrical step inside a democracy in serious trouble.

Australian Investment Education Outrageous Market Predictions for 2014. Over the course of the year, we add a variety of topics to our article banks. Typically this provides us 20 plus areas to consider and then we drop this list down into the dirty dozen. These are the key markets or instruments we trade, plus a couple of additional mainstream interest pieces like Bitcoin, Facebook and so on. One of the big competitive advantages we have over most traders, is our own in house team of analysts and sales traders so a couple of chats and lunches with the guys, often reveals some absolute gems, in terms of core trading points and views. This year, the 12 areas we are looking at in Outrageous Predictions 2014 are as follows: Facebook The World’s leading social media company has flexed its muscles this year. Breaking the stigma of its listing and languishing share price. China The outlook for China and its rampant economic growth has been the source of much controversy amongst market participants, traders, research analysts and just about anyone else out there. Exchange Traded Funds ETFs have been a massive growth area for traders and investors who are looking to isolate or invest in particular scenarios and opportunities. The Australian Banking Sector 2013 has been all about finding yield and as a result, the Aussie Big Four banking stocks have been major beneficiaries of their dividend policy. US Economy The world’s largest economy forms the mainstay of any economic forecast and outlook for markets. QE is its $85bn a month habit – how is this working for the US, what is in store for the new year and where will we be looking to bank profits? Australian Economy Our domestic economy has shown several colours in 2013 – from doom and despair to opportunity and profit. There have been a variety of factors behind this and several which will carry into 2014. Australian and US dollars The relationship between this pair is critical from a trade and traders’ perspective. With the big variation to date in economic activity and interest rate cycles setting the current framework, it looks increasingly likely that the tide is about to turn. Apple There is no question that Apple’s business is changing – it had to. With change always comes risk, and always comes opportunity. Crude Oil We try our best to find alternatives but it is almost impossible to live without it! Oil has been one of the most interesting markets this year. BHP Billiton Iron ore isn’t exciting, its not pretty, its not cutting edge but it is the backbone of what has been propping up the Aussie economy. Gold In terms of price, gold really has had a year to forget. As the saying goes, the past is history, the future a mystery and the present is a gift. Bitcoin No 2014 outlook would be complete without a look at Bitcoin – doubter or believer, what is the story with this overnight phenomena – marketing hype or commercial success?

This is the story of everyday Australians. It is a history of people helping people across 'generations, united by a common passion and commitment to humanitarian action.

Written by leading historian Melanie Oppenheimer, and fully illustrated with a wealth of photographs and other records from the archives of the Australian Red Cross Society, this riveting history marks 100 years of the Red Cross in Australia. This is the story of everyday Australians. It is a history of people helping people across 'generations, united by a common passion and commitment to humanitarian action.' Born at the outbreak of World War I, the Australian Red Cross celebrates its centenary in August 2014, making it one of the oldest and most respected voluntary organisations in Australia. With the help of volunteers across Australia, the Red Cross played a critical role in supporting the men fighting overseas and the families at home during WWI and its aftermath, and later during WWII. Post-WWII it continued to build on this foundation, developing humanitarian services both nationally and internationally. This celebratory book focuses not only on the past but also on the present and future of the Australian Red Cross, showing how the organisation has changed and developed over the last hundred years, from an organisation formed in war to one dealing with the varied demands of the twenty-first century - from social welfare to responding to disasters within Australia such as Cyclone Tracy, the Victorian bushfires and Queensland floods, as well as international crises such as the 2004 tsunami. Fully illustrated with a wealth of photographs and other material from the archives of the Australian Red Cross Society, this is an important record of an Australian icon

Cockroaches! Even a mere mention of the word causes many people to recoil in horror. However, of the hundreds of species of cockroaches (or blattodeans as they are known) found in Australia, only a small number of them give the group a bad name. Just a few species that are commonly found in homes, restaurants and hospitals are responsible for thousands of dollars in expenditure to comply with health standards. A Guide to the Cockroaches of Australia is a comprehensive account of most of the 550 described species found in Australia. The book reveals their diversity and beauty, it looks in detail at their morphology, habitats and ecology, and explains how to collect and preserve them. Importantly, it will allow pest controllers, students and researchers to reliably identify most of the common pest species as well as the non-pest cockroaches. It will also, perhaps, go some way towards elevating the reputation of these much-maligned insects, and promote further study of them. 2014 Whitley Award Commendation for Field Guide.
