Good evening ladies and gentlemen and thank you for coming along to join in a conversation tonight. I think the program of Manning Clark House is a real addition to our cultural life, and I congratulate Sebastian and Clare and their colleagues for the way in which this cultural centre is developing. At times over the past decade or more it has seemed like a welcoming hearth to come into from the gathering historical gloom outside. I had the privilege to be taught by Manning. I wasn’t one of his better students, although he once told me that he liked an essay I had written on St Thomas Aquinas. I don’t know how ...

Grief work finally comes to rest

Picture: Alan Pryke Source: The Australian WALKING into The 80s are Back, an exhibition at Sydney's Powerhouse Museum, is like walking into a giant party: a noisy, garish celebration of all that was the 80s, from pinball machines, record cover art and the daggy clothes of the era, to the pounding music of Kylie Minogue and InXS. But in one corner of the exhibition is a poignant reminder that there was another, much darker presence in the 1980s: the AIDS epidemic. By 1991, the virus ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Ambassador Bleich's Recent Events
Ambassador Jeffrey Bleich and Consul General Michael Thurston attended the Wayne Shorter Quartet performance, hosting a pre-show reception with the Adelaide Festival's Artistic Director Paul Grabowsky. The U.S Embassy supported the festival, helping to bring this jazz legend to South Australia. Ambassador Bleich noted that America was the birthplace of jazz and that one could not exist without the other.

Canberra is located in the Australian Capital Territory, which is surrounded by New South Wales. The city is 150 kilometres inland and 571 metres above the Pacific Ocean, 281 kilometres from Sydney and 660 kilometres from Melbourne.

European settlers first came in the 1830s, and the area was chosen for the federal capital in 1908. Canberra’s special contrast of nature and urban living was planned in 1912 by master designer, Walter Burley Griffin, a Chicago ...
