    Christian Porter: What Happens Now?

    Christian Porter: What Happens Now?

    Just over one week ago, a letter was sent to the offices of Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Labor Senator Penny Wong and Greens Senator Sarah Hanson Young detailing horrific allegations of an historical rape against a senior Cabinet Minister.

    On Wednesday, Attorney General Christian Porter revealed he was the accused perpetrator but categorically denied the allegation and has so far refused calls to stand down from his role.

    The Quicky speaks to the alleged victim's lawyer to discuss the legal side of the allegations, why the police concluded the investigation so quickly and what could or should happen from here.

    Designer Dog Theft: Thousands Of Dollars Tied Up Outside A Shop

    As we remain on home turf for the foreseeable future, the idea of owning a pet has never been more attractive, but the theft of two of Lady Gaga's French Bulldogs has made many of us afraid for the safety of our beloved fur babies.

    The Quicky speaks to a canine expert to find out what you can do to protect your pooch, and what you should know before you bring one home.

    From A Great Height: Why Many Ex-Athletes Crash After Retirement

    From A Great Height: Why Many Ex-Athletes Crash After Retirement

    For many young people becoming a world-famous sports star is the ultimate dream, but for those lucky few who do achieve great success the fame and fortune is often short-lived.

    Even the very best athletes usually retire by the time they hit their mid-30's, and figuring out what to do with the rest of their lives can be very challenging, which is why we see so many spectacularly fall from grace.

    The Quicky speaks to two of Australia's most elite athletes and an expert in sports psychology, to find out what happens once the spotlight moves on to someone else, and what can be done to help athletes transition to a normal life.

    How Fat Shaming By Doctors Is Putting Women's Lives At Risk

    How Fat Shaming By Doctors Is Putting Women's Lives At Risk

    Going to see your doctor should never be a bad experience, but for many women the reality is that instead of getting the medical treatment they need, everything is blamed on their weight.

    Weight bias or weight stigma - aka fat shaming - should not be part of any medical professional's mindset, but hundreds of women got in touch to tell us their own scarring experience inside the examination room.

    The Quicky investigates why old stereotypes about weight still persist, how a doctor should talk to their patient if they are genuinely concerned, and what to do if you're not happy about how you've been treated.
