No hurry on the Murray

There’s water in it and no red lights, finds David Fallick as he explores this mighty river.

Health care misses the mark

A study of 1154 patients between 2009-10 has found that in 43 per cent of cases, people were given inadequate medical care and attention. Researchers from the Universities of New South Wales and South Australia reviewed the care and advice given in 35,573 consultations from 107 general practitioner clinics, 53 specialist clinics and 33 hospitals.

South Australia to change its name?

A peak business group in South Australia has suggested that the state change its name to broaden its appeal to the international market. Peter Vaughan, Business SA chief executive, has called for a naming competition so the public can have their say and change the face of South Australia.

A rose by any other name

Forget farmer wants a wife; South Australia wants a new name. This is the suggestion of Peter Vaughan, chief executive of Business SA, the peak business group of the state. He claims that potential international visitors find it hard to grasp exactly what South Australia means. They often think it means the entire south of Australia and when the initials of SA are used they think of South Africa. Perhaps the state does have an identity problem.
