Glasses Malone’s debut album, Beach Cruiser, was originally scheduled to come out in 2006; however, numerous setbacks and label changes kept the album from seeing the day of light for a long time. Finding a home at Suburban Noize Records, Malone has finally released the album to masses, who were anxious to see how it would turn out. So was it worth the wait? Well, that’s going to depend on what you’re looking for.
Let's look at jobs that may be created 25 years from now:
Well in no particular order let’s start with that 1970’s blond bombshell and poster girl Farrah Fawcett. Oh that poster sent many a teenage boy into wondrous dreams. Charlie’s Angels was a huge hit and she was hired because she could jiggle like no one else could jiggle.
Remember when Beanie Babies were all the rage? That was over 15 years ago, so it may be hard to imagine how people went absolutely bonkers over plush stuffed animals not just as collector toys, but as a business investment.
The Gonski Report looks at recommendations for the future funding of education in Australian schools. Most of the recommendations have to do with the politics of funding and the need for more investment in staffing and facilities, but perhaps a more significant statement is the one paraphrased here. “The panel accepts that resources alone will not be sufficient to fully address Australia’s schooling challenges and achieve a high-quality, internationally respected schooling system. The new funding arrangements must be accompanied by continued and renewed efforts to strengthen and reform Australia’s schooling system." Our schools need $5 billion. Will they get it? As a result of the Gonski Report the Australian government is about to throw lots of money at the perceived problems in the Australian education system. If the money goes towards more teacher training or infrastructure, then the real problems may be left unaddressed.
