DATELINE AUSTRALIA – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – TSUNAMI HITS SYDNEY
Yesterday, September 20th 2018 at 9pm, a tsunami wreaked havoc along the NSW coast from Newcastle in the north to Nowra in the south. Huge regions of Sydney where devastated including the seaside suburbs of Cronulla, Bondi and Manly. The Tsunami surge also wiped out inner harbour suburbs such as Balmain and Kirribilli, destroyed the Sydney Harbour Bridge as well as the airport and flooded the central business district. Waves reached as far inland as Parramatta.

Maynard's Spooky Action....
Interview with Nathan "Mudyi" Sentence about promoting scepticism in museums, galleries, libraries and archives. Why does putting on a museum shirt make you an expert? Why does something written entering the archive make it history? Fake news is currently a much discussed topic, but for First Nations people fake news has been around for a long time - only it's called history.
