Greenland is a self-governing territory, responsible for its own policies and foreign affairs, that is technically a part of the Kingdom of Denmark. The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs declined to comment on the story when approached by ABC News. More
Many of the transport routes we use today—from rail lines, to roads, to water crossings—follow the traditional Songlines, trade routes and ceremonial paths in Country that our national First Peoples followed for tens of thousands of years. That’s why we are very proud to present the inaugural Transport Reconciliation Action Plan 2019-2021 which acknowledges and pays respect to the role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as custodians of the lands where we work. This plan demonstrates our commitment to working towards reconciliation both within Transport and in communities across NSW. More

China’s ambassador to Australia, Cheng Jingye, issued a statement on Saturday morning, as further rallies were taking place in Sydney and Melbourne.

18.08.19. At the base of this warning to Alan Jones called, ‘a last strike’, for his words against the very stupid Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand’s show pony PM, emerges that ME Bank will pull its advertising from 2GB. Russell Tate, the chairman of Macquarie Media Limited should be very careful with this because it appears to be an attack on a conservative announcer. Only four days ago Macquarie CEO Adam Lang muttered that Jones and Hadley should be shoved out to make way for younger and more left-wing voices. Tate and Lang might find out that more advertisers will jump ship when their audience goes elsewhere for truthful comment rather than Leftie crap. And, as for ME bank trying to dictate social policy by its bullying tactics to pull their advertising for something rather trivial said to Ardern, that most people would agree with, account holders of ME Bank will be right to close their accounts forthwith. Commercial bullying can be a two way street. Backing Ardern is a very bad bet.
Broadcaster Alan Jones has been told he is on his last strike at radio station 2GB, after his comments earlier this week about New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. More

Cathay Pacific Airways CEO Rupert Hogg has resigned amid mounting Chinese regulatory scrutiny of the Hong Kong flag carrier over the involvement of its employees in the city’s ongoing protests. Augustus Tang, the head of Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company — which, like Cathay, is managed by Swire Pacific Ltd — will take over as the carrier’s new chief. The airline also said Paul Loo had resigned as chief customer and commercial officer, to be replaced by Ronald Lam, head of the carrier’s low-cost arm Hong Kong Express. Cathay Chairman John Slosar said recent events had called into question the airline’s commitment to flight safety and security, and put its reputation and brand under pressure.”This is regrettable as we have always made safety and security our highest priority,” he said in a statement.
