  • FIFA's commercial partners urged to make their voices heard

    FIFA's sponsorship paymasters are facing mounting calls to put pressure on soccer's global governing body to clean up its act — and fast — following Wednesday's arrest of seven officials. Companies like Coca-Cola, Visa and Adidas have in recent months shown a growing willingness to voice their concerns publicly about FIFA's string of scandals, which have spanned from past allegations of corruption to the abuse of laborers building World Cup venues in Qatar. Wednesday's developments, which have also seen Swiss prosecutors open criminal proceedings into FIFA's awarding of the 2018 World Cup to Russia and the 2022 tournament to Qatar, should prompt them to demand change, according to a leading official at a global non-governmental organization.

  • Tax clampdown on landlords

    Three million landlords face tougher scrutiny from the Australian Tax Office, thanks in part to a property owner who had their daughter's wedding and an overseas trip paid for by taxpayers. The tax office has revealed it will use the tax reporting season to focus on rental property deductions and "unusually large" expense claims. One of the tax office's concerns is that landlords are getting more creative in their claims.

  • Six-decade war secret unearthed

    For 60 years Albany man Lyall Wilkinson knew where his grandfather’s World War I medals were hiding – he had buried them deep into the soil underneath a jarrah tree on his family’s Cranbrook farm when he was seven. Mr Wilkinson, now 67, had found them when exploring as a young boy – they were sitting in a tin box inside a chest in the spare room – and as adventurous boys do, he decided he’d bury them as treasure. The medals belonged to Walter James Wilkinson, who enlisted for service at the Western Front in 1915 at age 44 and served for two years.

  • Russia's nuclear threats 'deeply troubling': NATO chief

    Russia's provocative rhetoric and its dramatic expansion of flights by nuclear bombers are deeply troubling and dangerous, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday. Russia's plans to deploy nuclear-capable missiles in Kaliningrad -- near Poland's border -- and its threat to move nuclear forces in Crimea would "fundamentally change the balance of security in Europe," Stoltenberg warned, in speech during a visit to Washington. "Russia's recent use of nuclear rhetoric, exercises and operations are deeply troubling," he told an audience at the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank.

  • Prostitute tells of clean up after killing

    A prostitute who lived in the Boulder house where "body in the bin" murder victim Beau Davies was allegedly dismembered has given a graphic account of how she helped clean up the gruesome crime scene, including scrubbing clean one of the men accused of the murder. Steven Roberts, 50, Stephen Gandy, 40, Christian Gomis, 30, and Jayden Kett, 26, all deny murdering Mr Davies, whose body parts were found in a wheelie bin last February. Ms Kearsley told the Supreme Court in Perth she immediately feared for her own safety, so put on rubber gloves and began cleaning the bathroom where she found pieces of flesh and part of Mr Davies' scalp near a pair of secateurs.

  • Two key moments that sunk NSW in State of Origin I

    Queensland's veterans are in the box seat to have the last laugh on NSW's "Dad's Army" jokes after nabbing a dramatic 11-10 victory in the State of Origin opener at ANZ Stadium in Sydney. Cooper Cronk broke Blues hearts on Wednesday night when he kicked a 74th minute field goal after Johnathan Thurston missed a 70th minute penalty. NSW fullback Josh Dugan had a chance to lock up the scores but field goal effort in the 78th minute missed - to the horror of the Blues faithful in the 80,122-strong crowd.
