    Can Ellen Degeneres Survive Being Cancelled?

    Can Ellen Degeneres Survive Being Cancelled?

    For years, rumours have dogged Ellen Degeneres: that she's not the jolly, kind person she appears to be on her eponymous show. 

    Now, accusations of workplace bullying and racism behind the scenes of her show have been emerging. 

    Ellen has long been a pioneer in the television industry: the first woman to publicly come out as gay in prime time television. 

    Can she survive this latest controversy?

    What's It Like To Be Doing Year 12 In A Pandemic Year?

    What's It Like To Be Doing Year 12 In A Pandemic Year?

    For most students, thirteen years of school builds up to the climax of Year 12. Year 12 is seen, rightly or wrongly, as the school year that decides your future: whether you'll go to university, what kind of career you'll have, where the next part of your life is headed. 

    What happens, then, when there's a global pandemic in the year you're doing your final exams?

    Abuse, Body-Shaming and Secrets: Inside Gymnastics In Australia

    It's one of sport's great shames, and it's finally coming out.
