In November 2013, Queer Radio was chosen by an independent panel of judges to win the CAN Awards 2013 Media Award. The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all".
RBA: rate cuts not as effective as it used to be
Mr Stevens says the board’s monetary policy is less effective than it was a decade ago..
But he says weak inflation, high unemployment, below-average economic growth, and a high Australian dollar made it necessary to cut interest rates by 25 basis points last week to a record low of 2.25 per cent.
Mr Stevens has promised to give plenty of warning about any potential rise in rates to avoid speculation and any adverse effects on the economy.
