Qantas to slash carbon emissions
Qantas is the only airline group to commit to cap its net emissions at 2020 levels, and the second to commit to net zero emissions by 2050. In total, these commitments are the most ambitious carbon emissions targets of any airline group globally. This commitment is very significant given the airline industry is seen as a major contributor to carbon emissions.https://www.qantasnewsroom.com.au/media-releases/qantas-group-to-slash-carbon-emissions/

Blood test may diagnose deadly eye melanoma early
University of Queensland scientists say a blood test could diagnose deadly eye melanoma early, after discovering markers in the blood that can differentiate between a benign mole and a melanoma. With further development, the blood test could be used as a monitoring tool with optometrists, GPs, and specialists and may also be able to identify if the cancer has spread to other areas of the body. |http://bit.ly/2rGJk89

A next generation disaster management service
California’s One Concern is an example of a next-generation disaster management service that provides a model for what could be achieved in Australia. It has partnered with various city governments, including San Francisco and Los Angeles, to create virtual models of particular regions’ physical environment, by assigning “digital fingerprints” to each significant feature of that environment. The service constantly monitors any thermal shifts and seismic movement across the sensor network. Processing this data together with historical data allows One Concern to run simulations to help determine the best course of action while a disaster event is unfolding. https://theconversation.com/amp/virtual-
