The Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses (CPR) is urging the public to ask whether the glamour of horseracing is worth the cruel deaths of horses every year.

Australia's decline as an athletic nation has continued at the Edinburgh games.

What we have here is clever, tricky and cynical. It isn't a great big tax it is a tiny one – barely noticeable. After all if 175,000 of us pledge just $1, the Pararoos are saved!

No thanks, men are not confused, as many journalists like to suggest. It's just hard at times to know what to say, without being attacked by someone.

The 2014 World Cup tournament will burn through enough energy before it's over to fuel almost every one of the 260 million cars and trucks in the United States for an entire day, or the equivalent of what 560,000 cars use in a year.
To a certain extent the game is a victim of its own success – so popular it has fallen into the hands of people who wish to squeeze it for every dollar they can make.
