    Michael is joined by Sue Thompson, President of the Lilydale & District Historical Society, regarding the life and legacy of Dame Nellie Melba who died 90 years ago today.   Dame Melba was born Helen Porter Mitchell on 19 May 1861 in Melbourne, the daughter of David Mitchell, a building constructor with musical interests.      She studied singing in Melbourne making a modest success in performances and while there took the pseudonym "Melba", from Melbourne, her hometown.   After a brief and unsuccessful marriage, Melba moved to Europe in search of a singing career.  Failing to find engagements in London in 1886, she studied in Paris and soon made a great success there and in Brussels.   Returning to London she quickly established herself as the leading lyric soprano at Covent Garden from 1888 and soon achieved further success in Paris and elsewhere in Europe, then later at the Metropolitan Opera in New York debuting in 1893.   Her repertoire was small; in her whole career she sang no more than 25 ro

    Facebook to pull news from Australian users

    18/02/2021 Duración: 10min

    Luke Grant is joined by Matthew Nguyen, Reset Australia’s Policy Lead, regarding Facebook’s decision to pull news from its Australian users which they say reveals just how little the platform cares about stopping misinformation.   Facebook blocking news in the middle of a pandemic, when accurate information is a key plank of the public health response really tells you all you need know about how much Zuckerberg cares about Australian society and cohesion, says Reset Australia.   Throughout the News Media Bargaining Code process Big Tech has dismissed 'news' as nothing more than a line item on a balance sheet.   Facebook is telling Australians that rather than participate meaningfully in regulatory efforts, it would prefer to operate a platform in which real news has been abandoned or de-prioritised, leaving misinformation to fill the void.   “The difference between information and misinformation and the value of the news to the functioning of democracy doesn’t matter to Facebook. Regulation is an inco

    Associate Professor Patrice Rey, School of Geosciences at the University of Sydney joins Luke Grant regarding the small piece of Australia that will arrive on Mars with the NASA Perseverance rover, scheduled to land at the Jezero crater today.   Chiselled from the Australian outback, a bit of desert rock is on board to help the rover look for signs of early microbial life in ancient rocks on Mars.   The sample was provided by Luke’s guest Professor Rey, who excavated a small piece of the Pilbara in Western Australia five years ago, sent it overseas to colleagues – then forgot about it – only to be informed last year it was headed to Mars.   That bit of Australia is geologically similar to the area being explored by Perseverance and is now on board the rover to assist in the hunt for evidence of early life Mars.   “Whether or not life once emerged on Mars is the focus of the NASA Perseverance Mission”, says Professor Rey.   “With seven mini-laboratories and the drone Ingenuity, it will scan, probe an

        Michael is joined by David Shoebridge, Greens MP in the NSW Legislative Council, who slams Arts Minister Don Harwin for claiming the government will be “relocating’’ the historic Italianette villa Willow Grove and “faithfully reassembling’’ it into a better condition.   Mr Shoebridge blasted Mr Harwin, saying there was no planning approval to rebuild Willow Grove because “you bloody don’t know where you want to do it’’ and relocation was a poor heritage outcome.    He also points out that the 188 conditions of consent approved by the Department of Planning did not explicitly guarantee the rebuilding of Willow Grove   The state government is ignoring Parramatta’s heritage and Mr Harwin is yet to provide details about the exact site it would be relocated, says Mr Shoebridge.   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Anniversary of The Fall of Singapore - 1942

    16/02/2021 Duración: 12min

    Garth O'Connell, Australian War Memorial Curator | Military Heraldry and Technology, joins Michael for the 80th anniversary of Australia’s WW2 troops shipping out to Singapore and the 79th anniversary of the Fall of Singapore - which British prime minister Winston Churchill called the "worst disaster" in British military history.   In February 1941, with the threat of an impending war with Japan, Australia dispatched the Eighth Division, four RAAF squadrons and eight warships to Singapore and Malaya.  Australian pilots were some of the first to engage with the Japanese when the Imperial Army invaded Malaya on 8 December 1941.   The Fall of Singapore was fought in the South–East Asian theatre of the Pacific War when the Empire of Japan invaded the British stronghold of Singapore - nicknamed the "Gibraltar of the East".   Prior to the invasion, Singapore was a major British military base and economic trading port in South–East Asia and was the key to British imperial interwar defence planning for South-Ea
