As we head towards 2050 and beyond, our society will be faced with many challenges.
Climate change, food security, equality, justice, health and welfare challenges are but a few. Here I share my thoughts and observations about many current and continuing issues. I would be pleased to receive your feedback and I invite you to join me in the conversations.
My sister was recently introduced to junior hockey in an initiation of fire, or rather that should be sleet and gale force winds! She willingly accepted the challenge of being actively involved as a caregiver and supporter during the week long SAPSASA hockey program on the SA Primary School Sports calendar.The carnival was held in metropolitan Adelaide.
I am so blessed to have a sister who was willing and able to perform the highly important and vital role of “hockey mum.” Corinna capably stepped-up during the days my work prevented me being on the sidelines.
Last Monday night I had the privilege of attending the SA Leaders debate in the run up to the March 15 poll.It was hosted by the ABC. Moderator, Chris Uhlmann, remarked before the show went to air that we are so very lucky in our country. He said, things can get heated during our election campaigns but ‘nobody dies!’
He is right.Globally, so many have paid the ultimate sacrifice in their pursuit of the right to vote and to live in a democratic society.We have that right and privilege and yet we are often apathetic and complain about the most insignificant things.
In speaking with business people throughout my travels in recent months, I am becoming increasingly alarmed at tales of a familiar practice permeating many retail outlets.
That is, the practice of consumers conducting ‘reconnaissance missions’ on items before making a purchase. Whether it be for a pair of sporting shoes or a bra, it seems consumers aren’t afraid to admit that they are just ‘trying on’ an item so that they can make a purchase on line.
