The conversation surrounding changing the date of Australia Day from January 26 has become steadily more mainstream in the last few years. In the past few years, large-scale Invasion Day rallies have made mainstream headlines, youth radio station triple j announced they would be moving the Hottest from January 26 in order to depoliticise the music countdown and make it available to all Australians, and usage of the ChangeTheDate hashtag on social media has become widely recognised. While the conversation remains ongoing with strong voices on both sides of the issue, it might be worth delving into the historical adaptability of the date.

So, here’s a round-up of just some of the dates we’ve celebrated ‘Australia Day’, or similar holidays that celebrated Australia’s founding or Australian identity.

It belongs to people in dozens of countries trying to finance long-term goals like retirement. And we have a deep responsibility to these institutions and individuals — who are shareholders in your company and thousands of others — to promote long-term value. Last September, when millions of people took to the streets to demand action on climate change, many of them emphasized the significant and lasting impact that it will have on economic growth and prosperity — a risk that markets to date have been slower to reflect.

Lessons learnt from the last payment cycle during the National Lockdown have compelled SASSA to review the payment dates going forward. As from the month of May Disability and Older Persons Grants will be paid from the 3rd day of the month. All other grants will be paid from the 6th of every month.

There was also a scene in a Dobsonville shopping centre in Soweto where a group of youngsters were captured on video pushing older people in order to access payment infrastructure first. What came out of the consultations, is that, people with Disabilities and the Aged need to be protected from the month end rush at payment outlets and therefore, payment needs to be staggered in such a way that these categories of beneficiaries receive their grants before others.

Egyptian civilization has flourished continuously since prehistoric times. While the civilization’s rulers, writing, natural climate, religion and borders have changed many times over the millennia, Egypt still exists as a modern-day country. The civilization has always been strongly connected with other parts of the world, bringing in and exporting goods, religions, food, people and ideas. At times ancient Egypt ruled territory outside the modern-day country’s border, controlling territory in what is now Sudan, Cyprus, Lebanon, Syria, Israel and Palestine.
The country was also occupied by other powers — the Persians, Nubians, Greeks and Romans all conquered the country at different points in time. A number of names were used for Egypt in ancient times.

Family and domestic violence including child abuse, intimate partner abuse, and elder abuse is a common problem in the United States. Family and domestic health violence are estimated to affect 10 million people in the United States every year.
It is a national public health problem, and virtually all healthcare professionals will at some point evaluate or treat a patient who is a victim of some form of domestic or family violence. Domestic and family violence includes a range of abuse including economic, physical, sexual, emotional, and psychological toward children, adults, and elders. Domestic violence is thought to be underreported. Domestic violence affects the victim, families, co-workers, and community.
The national economic cost of domestic and family violence is estimated to be over 12 billion dollars per year. The numbers of individuals affected is expected to rise over the next 20 years with the increase in the elderly population. Domestic and family violence is difficult to identify, and many cases go unreported to health professionals or legal authorities.

Thandeka stood in line for hours, submitted her ballot for Nelson Mandela as first black president of South Africa, and then returned to her newborn so that Roseline Sidya could head to the polls.
