Voters have given Prime Minister Scott Morrison a net performance rating of minus nine per cent, ahead of a difficult fortnight for the government. Forty-nine per cent of voters surveyed in the Resolve poll, conducted for The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, said Mr Morrison was doing a poor job as Prime Minister, while 40 per cent said he was doing a good job. It comes as two government senators and one lower-house MP threaten to withhold support for bills before Parliament unless the government moves to end state vaccine mandates. If maverick MP George Christensen makes good on his threat, the government could struggle to pass laws including its religious freedom bill.

Timber industry advocates have lodged several freedom of information requests for correspondence between Australian National University scientist David Lindenmayer and journalists, including from The Age and Sydney Morning Herald. One forestry advocate said the FOI requests were made to better understand the connection between ANU's Fenner School of Environment and Society and sections of the media. But the ANU said it would be concerned if the move dissuaded academics from speaking freely to journalists.

It was a sensational blow to organised crime - and when Australia's Federal Police joined forces with the FBI to create a phone network to infiltrate drug gangs, the fallout shocked both police and politicians. An Aussie cartel with tentacles deep into the airline and freight industry, along with border agents on the books of the gang, have been an eye-opener to the power of the criminal networks and to the wealth. Nicola Tallant chats with multi-award winning investigative journalist Nick McKenzie of the Sydney Morning Herald about the kingpin at the top of Australia's underworld, about the high prices for cocaine fuelling a criminal goldrush and about the extent of organised crime networks previously unknown.

Countries taking part in the conference are being urged to commit to drastic measures to cut emissions by half over the next decade, in an effort to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. The UK has committed to reducing emissions by 68 per cent of 1990 levels by 2030, while the United States has committed to a 52 per cent reduction on 2005 levels by 2030.

It's hardly world-beating. Countries taking part in the conference are being urged to commit to drastic measures to cut emissions by half over the next decade, in an effort to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. The UK has committed to reducing emissions by 68 per cent of 1990 levels by 2030, while the United States has committed to a 52 per cent reduction on 2005 levels by 2030. Australia's targets of a 26-28 per cent reduction by 2030 have not changed.

If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?“The common good and how we can all be there for one another. I wish we would reflect on who's talking, who's being talked for and who's missing entirely.” Strap yourselves in because you are about to hear from one seriously outstanding human. I'm delighted to introduce you to the legendary Holly Ransom. Holly is a globally renowned content curator, powerful speaker and master interviewer Holly's belief is that if you walk past it, you tell the world it's okay. She was named one of Australia's 100 Most Influential Women by the Australian Financial Review, she has delivered a Peace Charter to the Dalai Lama, was Sir Richard Branson's nominee for Wired Magazine's ‘Smart List' of Future Game Changers to watch and was awarded the US Embassy's Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Leadership Excellence in 2019. Having interviewed the likes of Barack Obama, Malcolm Gladwell, Richard Branson, Billie Jean-King, Condoleezza Rice, Nobel Prize Winner Muhammad Yunus and the world's first humanoid robot Sophia, Holly fights complexity with curiosity, apathy with empowerment and fear with fact. Holly was identified early as a dynamic thought leader and asked to Co- Chair the G20 Youth Summit in 2014, the United Nations Coalition of Young Women Entrepreneurs in 2016 and was the youngest Director ever to be appointed to an Australian Football Club, the mighty Port Adelaide. An accomplished company director, Holly has compressed a power-packed career into a decade, spanning corporate, nonprofit and public sectors. She's the founder and CEO of consulting firm Emergent servicing some major global clients. She's a regular on The Drum and QandA; a proud champion for diversity and inclusion, as the Chair of Pride Cup Australia Holly's podcast ‘Coffee Pods' was named in the top ten business podcasts to listen to by the Sydney Morning Herald in 2018 and she's currently hosting the Energy Trailblazers podcast which I'm really enjoying. Holly's achievements feel never ending - she's a woman on a mission. As a Fulbright scholar and Harvard Kennedy School Class of '21 fellow, Holly is a recipient of the prestigious Anne Wexler Public Policy Scholarship, allowing her to action social and economic inclusion by connecting people with the decisions that affect their lives. Having released her book The Leading Edge, Holly helps people harness their own potential to lead by asking better questions, thinking beyond biased answers and building collective momentum for change. The Leading Edge is part of Holly's broader belief that we need to democratise leadership learning and break open elite leadership discourse to fire up every individual to catalyse change. Holly has been recognised as a LinkedIn Influencer and a must-read content producer by the Australian Institute of Company Directors. As founder and CEO of consulting firm Emergent, Holly has led real-world results with clients such as P&G, Microsoft, Virgin, Cisco and KPMG. Holly has also been a regular on the likes of The Drum and QandA. As a proud champion for diversity and inclusion, Holly is Chair of Pride Cup Australia, a non-profit organisation (and movement) devoted to challenging LGBTI+ discrimination within sporting clubs - and create welcoming and supportive environments for LGBTI participation and fans. A two-time Ironwoman, Holly loves to cook, dance and sing... despite her complete lack of talent at all three. You'd think that you'd feel a bit inadequate hanging out with Holly -but that's just the thing - she's such a beautiful person, incredibly humble & her curiosity about the world just radiates from her sparkly eyes. Holly is one of the reasons I found my voice with creating the Wabi Sabi Series so I'm absolutely thrilled to get to sit down and chat with her, it was such a delight.

This week Allan and Darren begin by resuming their discussion of AUKUS. With the decision now a few weeks old, have their minds changed? How are they seeing the debate evolving? What have been some of the more interesting contributions? For Darren, interventions by former Prime Ministers Malcolm Turnbull and Paul Keating are particularly notable, and Allan has plenty to say on both. Second, the two turn to the first in-person leaders meeting of the Quad. What is its significance? What should one make of the (over 2000 word) communique? Are things headed in a positive direction? Third, an area where both agree US leadership has been lacking is in trade, which makes China's application to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) all the more interesting. Is this a serious application? How should Canberra approach it, given the ongoing campaign of economic coercion? Meanwhile, the United States Trade Representative (USTR) Katherine Tai gave a speech on US-China relations this week—does that offer clues as to the Biden administration's plans for China, or economic leadership generally in the region? Finally, with Beijing upping its aerial incursions into Taiwan's air defense identification zone (ADIZ), both Allan and Darren offer some preliminary comments on what will certainly remain an issue in the months and years ahead.
