Australian govt has few details on the planned COVIDSafe app. Using the contact tracing app, the govt can "prosecute a breach of the law in relation to contact tracing" & uninstalling "will not automatically delete" info already uploaded to the data store: health.gov.au/covidsafe-priv…..

You can't make this shit up.
Australia has a massive toilet paper shortage, but this Toowoomba family have enough for 12 years - after mistakenly ordering 48 boxes instead of 48 rolls from online delivery service Who Gives A Crap.
Covering Black Summer bushfires made me realise how Australia not having a national disaster management office was extremely unhelpful. Now, with Covid-19, it's even more evident.
If states are scared of a federal agency, then maybe have an emergency/disaster COORDINATION office.

"That does not help you much, does it?" one of the judges asks Judd during an argument.
"At some point when you take us through the evidence..." another remarks.
So many questions, interjections from the judges! She is definitely having a harder time than Walker on Wed.
There's a fundamental problem with news reports like these. Vanuatu's lucrative "passports for sale" scheme... It's not like Australia, Austria, or USA do not offer such programs. In Australia, it costs about $1.5 million. Austria, 9 million.

It is a huge problem in the mainstream media - the lens we use when we look at small, developing countries make us frame stories that fit/reinforce the stereotypes set by the hegemonies. Many journalists still eschew orientalist views when covering stories of the other/subaltern.

Also, seems several infection incidents are "cluster" related to specific events/places. Like,
Ruby Princess cruise ship docked in Sydney (133+ cases)
Sydney's Church of Christ congregation (13+)
A wedding at Stanwell Tops (33+)
50th birthday party at a Noosa restaurant (17+)

But obviously that does not mean she is not performing well. She seems tough and comfortable. Judges have so many questions. She have the answers in most cases, though stumbled a few times.
