Taste of a ‘hellish’ summer

Several fires spread across NSW this week during unseasonably hot weather, including a blaze on the south coast which began in an area burned during the 2019-20 Black Summer fires.

NSW Premier Chris Minns warned parts of the state could be in for a “hellish” summer.

Floods ravage Victoria

Thousands of Victorians were told to seek higher ground this week as rising rivers in the east of the state burst their banks, just days after the region was hit by bushfires.

As of Friday afternoon, up to 60 homes in Victoria’s east were still threatened by floodwaters.

Swift sparks NFL frenzy

Taylor Swift was once again watching purported new squeeze Travis Kelce play ball, and this time she was joined by Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Sophie Turner and Hugh Jackman.

Apparently Swift’s attendance led to an increase in female viewers, making it was the most-watched television program airing on a Sunday since the Super Bowl.

Bobby Hill’s stunning mark

Collingwood’s Bobby Hill took an incredible mark during the 2023 grand final against the Brisbane Lions, his former club, and followed it up with a goal.

His performance at the MCG earned him the Norm Smith Medal and helped Collingwood secure the flag.

Daicos family celebrates

After Collingwood’s win there were plenty of sweet moments among the players. The Daicos brothers shared a very special moment with their family.

Josh and Nick Daicos were seen embracing with their parents, Colleen and Collingwood legend, Peter.

Simone Biles is back!

Simone Biles is back and this week she won her 20th world championship gold medal.

The most-decorated US gymnast played her part to help the US team win its seventh consecutive title.

Kevin McCarthy ousted

After far-right Republicans kicked off a rebellion, the US House of Representatives voted to oust Speaker Kevin McCarthy, a historic first for the US.

Leader of the coup, Matt Gaetz, claimed McCarthy was not doing enough to cut federal spending while failing to stand up to President Joe Biden.

Trump’s bizarre rant

At a rally this week, 2024 presidential hopeful Donald Trump said he would rather be electrocuted than mauled by a shark in a bizarre rant, inspired by an apparent conversation he had with a boat manufacturer.

I will take electrocution every single time, do we agree?” he asked the crowd.



A very smart border collie has mastered the art of parkour, or rather, barkour.

The dog was filmed jumping up on to some bike racks and making his way across all of them, not even wobbling, while his human exclaims how “cool” the trick is.

Fat Bear Week kicks off

Fat Bear Week went ahead, after some feared it wouldn’t when it looked as though the US would have another government shutdown.

People are still able to vote for their favourite bear, among those you can vote for is Chunk, seen in the video, but TND VoW favourite Otis is also in the running.
