  • Don't panic, $1m in super not essential

    It would be nice to have $1 million in your superannuation account when you retire, but it's by no way essential. Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees boss Tom Garcia believes claims that a $1 million or more balance was needed for a comfortable retirement is causing unnecessary fear and concern among older Australians.

  • Part number confirms debris from 777 jet

    Malaysian authorities have confirmed that the plane wreckage washed up on an Indian Ocean island is from a Boeing 777, meaning the part is almost certainly from missing flight MH370. The debris, part of a plane wing called a flaperon, could provide the first tangible clue to unlocking the mystery surrounding the doomed Malaysia Airlines plane, which disappeared without trace on March 8 last year with 239 people on board, including six Australians. This could be the convincing evidence that MH370 went down in the Indian Ocean," Malaysia's Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said.

  • China steps up campaign to remove church crosses

    Authorities in Wenzhou, known as China's Jerusalem, have given Christian churches a deadline to remove prominent crosses within weeks, worshippers and an activist group said Thursday, stepping up a long-running campaign. The eastern province of Zhejiang, where Wenzhou is located, earlier this year proposed rules requiring crosses for Catholic and Protestant churches to be attached to the front of the building, rather than on the roof. The move came after Wenzhou authorities last year demolished the large Sanjiang Church, following government claims it was an illegal structure.

There was a full moon on July 2 and whenever there are two full moons in a calendar month the second one is a so-called blue moon.
