We're Already Living Inside The Matrix:
The Importance Of Computer Clicks
In Determining Our Future.
Running a digital weekly and a print quarterly are two very different jobs, but the beauty of performing these two jobs means that publisher Josh Fanning has access "behind the curtain," into the magic of the internet.
And while the term 'globalisation' seems to have been replaced with 'disruption', Josh will also discuss and hopefully introduce you to the real ways in which automation and technology are creating a single global narrative that is quietly displacing and the very reality we live in today.
Josh Fanning published his first magazine 12 years ago with a special feature on the ANZAC legacy and featuring an illustration of his overweight housemate in WWI regalia on the cover.

What Is Breast Density And Does It Matter If Your Breasts Are Dense?
You might have seen the billboards up all around Australia from the Pink Hope charity warning “Any one of us could be dense”. They’re not talking about your IQ! This is about breast density and you may be wondering whether this is something you need to know about.
Breast density has nothing to do with how breasts look or feel, it actually relates to what breasts look like on a mammogram. High breast density can make cancers harder to detect on a mammogram, and it is also a risk factor for developing breast cancer.
Charlie currently works as the General Manager at Australian Green Clean, a company that specialises in environmental cleaning and waste management services for events and commercial sites.
Associate Professor Wendy Ingman is a breast biologist working at understanding why women with high breast density have increased risk of developing breast cancer.
Can Your Protein Choices Really Save The Planet And Do We All Need To Turn Vegan?
Meat consumption has recently been identified as the bad boy of the environment and our health. Beef production accounts for the highest greenhouse gas emissions of our farming sector, with approx. 25kg of greenhouse gases emitted per kilo of meat produced.
Meat consumption in Australia is five times the recommended World Health Organisation levels, which is linked to a range of diet-related diseases including heart attacks, strokes and cancer.
