Phil Hughes: Australian batsman dies, aged 25

Australia Test batsman Phil Hughes has died, two days after being hit on the head by a ball.

Australia team doctor Peter Brukner said he never regained consciousness and died in hospital in Sydney.

Hughes, 25, was carried off on a stretcher at the Sydney Cricket Ground after a short-pitched delivery struck his head, missing his helmet.

He had CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation before being taken to hospital and placed in an induced coma.

In a statement, Peter Brukner said: "It is my sad duty to inform you that a short time ago Phillip Hughes passed away. He never regained consciousness following his injury on Tuesday.

"He was not in pain before he passed and was surrounded by his family and close friends.

"As a cricket community we mourn his loss and extend our deepest sympathies to Phillip's family and friends at this incredibly sad time.

"Cricket Australia kindly asks that the privacy of the Hughes family, players and staff be respected."

Scott Morrison declares an end to class warfare as Bill Shorten prepares billions in savings





Treasurer Scott Morrison has declared an end to class warfare in Australian politics during his post-budget sales pitch, saying voters were "over the us and them" approach to governing.
As the government shifted gears and began its election-eve sales pitch, Mr Morrison dismissed claims the budget had created winners and losers, argued the stronger economy would benefit all and highlighted crackdowns on multinational tax avoidance and superannuation tax concessions as evidence of the budget's fairness.
"We have got to stop looking at the economy as if it's a whole bunch of individuals, and they are all looking for their little bit out of the government," Mr Morrison told the National Press Club post-budget lunch.


"Australians are over this class warfare, they are over the us and them. They are over it."

But the Labor leader Bill Shorten will reject that claim on Thursday night and is preparing to launch a ferocious attack on the Turnbull government in his budget reply speech.
The Opposition Leader will make politically brave promises of billions of dollars in new spending cuts over a 10-year period in his speech, while also claiming tens of billions in savings by opposing the budget's centrepiece "10 year plan" to cut company tax to 25 per cent by 2026-27.

Octopuses Multiplying at Astounding Rates


They're eight-armed and dangerous. Australian scientists have revealed that cuttlefish, octopus and squid populations have been steadily increasing since the 1950s, while fish species that humans prefer to eat, like cod and haddock, have seen populations halve since 1970. But cephalopods don't just benefit from being less popular as dinner: They expand to fill vacant ecological niches by targeting new prey and displaying flexible reproductive cycles - and warming oceans may be helping them thrive, too. Marine biologists worry this global octo-boom will further deplete the deep-sea food chain.

Australia's Next Political Debate Will Be on Facebook

They're making a play for more friends. Aussie Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull challenged his opponent, Bill Shorten, to debate him online - and Shorten's Labor Party says he'll be there. Turnbull snubbed Sky News, which hosted the first debate, in favor of the deal with Facebook Live and news.com.au, who will co-host the country's first online-only matchup next week, ahead of an expected July 2 election. Some hope this will spur Turnbull's government to address crawling rural Internet speeds that could keep many Australians from watching.
