* Education Should Step Away from Apple Devices (2014-Dec-24) [Anthony Carabache]

* Victoria bans Alpine National Park cattle grazing (2014-Dec-29) [The Age]
Cattle grazing in the Alpine National Park is over, with the new Labor government fulfilling a long-standing election promise to ban the practice.
The government has ended, effective immediately, a scientific trial involving about 60 cattle that was being used to test claims cattle grazing can reduce fire risk in national parks.
The new Minister for Environment and Climate Change, Lisa Neville, will also put a ban on such scientific trials into legislation to stop future governments reversing the policy.
