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".
Defence minister can't name his opponent
When pressed on the issue on last night’s 7.30 report, the Defence minister argued that the Islamic State possessed a fluidity of leadership, eventually closing the question by saying he couldn’t comment on operational issues.
7.30 host Leigh Sales admitted she was surprised the defence minister couldn’t name the head of IS, especially when US State Department has a $10m bounty on his head.
