    Snakes often spark fear in humans because of their venom and speed, but one found itself completely helpless when it stumbled into the home of a deadly spider. Carmel Munro, from Vinifera, Australia, walked into her garden shed to find a female redback spider battling a snake that it had caught in its web. Despite tossing and turning the large snake cannot shake itself free as the spider approaches to inject its venom.

    Most living creatures make themselves scarce upon seeing a huntsman spider. But not the spider wasp. It kills them and uses them as a giant meal for its larvae – and one of the insects has been caught on camera dragging one of the arachnids around a kitchen.

    Australia has a serious cat problem, with feral cats covering 99.8% of the country according to new research published in the journal Biological Conservation. The exact number of cats fluctuates from roughly 1.4 million after continent-wide droughts cramp food sources to about 5.6 million after extensive wet periods, which result in plenty of available prey. An additional 700,000 feral cats are estimated to live in other environments, including Australia’s urban areas, rubbish dumps and intensive farms. Despite this, researchers say that the cats’ impact on Australia’s fauna is still severe, and that reducing this impact is of critical importance. The...

    Indonesia has suspended all military cooperation with Australia, the ABC reports. The move was reportedly made over 'offensive' training materials on display at an Australian SAS base in Perth. Major General Wuryanto has not confirmed the reason for the suspension, saying it was for technical matters, and that there were "ups and downs in every cooperation between two national forces". According to Indonesian newspaper, Kompas, an Indonesian Special Forces instructor took offence to some “laminated material” at the Perth base.

    An Australian couple woke up Christmas morning to find a fur seal doing its best impression of a hood ornament on their car, but residents of the town say this is not the first time a seal has tried to move in to the neighborhood. Animal control officers in Newstead, a suburb of Tasmania, subdued the seal as it ran from driveway to driveway and car to car through the neighborhood, apparently unsure how to get back to the nearby waterway it came from. "We got up and there was this great big seal on the roof of the car,...

"It's quite a remarkable to happen a day before Christmas," Duty Superintendent O'Brien said.

    As the United Nations becomes increasingly radical in its assaults on liberty and national sovereignty, the movement for free nations to leave the dictator-dominated UN has now officially arrived in Australia. Speaking on the floor of Parliament in his inaugural address, newly elected Senator Malcolm Roberts with the One Nation party said Australian values were under threat from “insidious” institutions such as the unelected UN. To deal with it, he called for an “OzExit.” In a passionate defense of freedom, Roberts also blasted privately owned central banks and the incestuous relationship between global mega-banks and Big Government.

    It isn’t enough that Muslim migrants are sexually assaulting children, seniors and scores of women throughout Europe, now in Australia, “a rampaging mob of 30 African migrants beat two men senseless during an unprovoked and horrifying attack on a beach.” In recent years, gangs of mostly Sudanese men have terrorised Melbourne suburbs with a spate of burglaries, rape, assault, and carjackings. Police have said the gangs seem to be motivated by pleasure, warning: “Drugs or money aren’t the driver. It’s purely for the fun. They’re getting off on humiliating their victims.” Apparently nothing else is expected of these “wild animals”...

That’s according to Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne who said the addition of 12 Shortfin Barracuda submarines to Australia’s arsenal will reassure President-elect Donald Trump the country is not shirking its military duties by being “strategic bludgers”. Mr Pyne’s visit to the sprawling military-style factory was a chance for the Minister to see for himself the kind of facilities that will be built in Adelaide where the submarines will be created over the...

And they're giving others permission to embrace a gentler, more thoughtful kind of masculinity. Myles Loughran is a cat man. 'Cat man' as in, 'cat lady', but with a Y-chromosome. Put another way, Mr Loughran is a man who likes cats — as opposed to a man who likes dogs, say, or miniature pigs.

You can see the dog trying to escape, wanting nothing to do with the kangaroo. The big buck kangaroo releases the dog when the owner gets close but then moves in to try and attack the human.

    The 380 crew of a US warship ­attacked by rebels off the coast of Yemen may have been saved from death or injury by a world-beating missile defence system developed in Australia. The guided missile destroyer USS Mason was operating in the Red Sea about 12 nautical miles off the coast of Yemen on October 9, when it was fired on by Houthi rebels believed to have used two land-based anti-ship cruise ­missiles.

    Defence experts have weighed in on what a Trump presidency will mean for the Australian Defence Force. For 100 years, the Australian military has fought alongside or followed the United States into major conflict zones around the world. Australian and American servicemen and women have fought and died together in the two world wars, Korea, Vietnam, East Timor, Afghanistan and Iraq. Former US President George Bush famously called Australia America’s sheriff in south-east Asia. But Donald Trump has put US military allies on notice, particularly if they’re not dedicating near enough to 2 per cent of their GDP on defence...

Dowiyogo died at 7:40 a.m. local time (2040 GMT Sunday) at the George Washington University Hospital in Washington, said spokeswoman Helen Bogden, who is based in Melbourne. Dowiyogo had undergone an 11-hour heart operation last Tuesday. Bogden said the U.S. Air Force had agreed to fly Dowiyogo's body back to Nauru later in the week for a funeral service. Dowiyogo is survived by a wife and four children. A...

In Australia, Citibank has just become the first to declare that it no longer will accept notes or coins. Only digital transactions.

    Pensions & Investments ^ | October 31, 2016 | Arleen Jacobius
    Pension funds and other asset owners increasingly are investing in U.S. infrastructure, often buying the assets from infrastructure money managers. This could be a win-win. Investor interest comes at a time when the first crop of infrastructure funds raised in the U.S. in 2004 and 2005 are coming to the end of their 10-year life span. Managers are expected to bring more transactions to market to take advantage of growing interest by direct investors. Industry insiders expect more infrastructure core projects to change to institutional investor ownership. Investors prize the core projects, even though returns generally are lower than investments...

    Children as young as eight are terrorising a town in retaliation after an Aboriginal man was shot by police. Residents in Cowra, in central west New South Wales, are so terrified they are sleeping with weapons next to their beds.

The 32-year-old accused thief is still in hospital recovering following the shooting. Now the town is being terrorised by a mob of mostly Aboriginal children, believed to be as young...
