GPS tracking devices to be used to reduce domestic violence
For the 1st time in NSW, under a trial being launched by the NSW Government, high-risk domestic violence offenders will be fitted with GPS tracking devices. Victims will also be given the option to carry their own GPS unit to alert authorities should the offender come within a certain distance. The victim would then be contacted by authorities and advised of the imminent danger. This new measure is not only for sentenced or paroled offenders, but could also be used to monitor compliance with bail conditions where a victim is protected by an Apprehended Domestic Violence Order (ADVO) with geographical restrictions. A magistrate could order the issuing of a GPS device, fitted with an alarm and worn on an offender's ankle, as part of a bail application or sentencing. A magistrate or state parole authority could also order it as part of parole conditions.

Pyjamas you can wear inside AND outside home
Lunya started in 2012 to cater to our more casual lifestyles and offer something different from lingerie and traditional pyjamas. They aim to help women who want comfort and style as well as easy transitions for running out of the house on small jobs hence feature drapey, minimalist styles like the ones in this photo. With people now realizing the importance of sleep, sleepwear is becoming a much more important category with strong growth. www.lunya.co

Fake beef
Impossible Foods is making meats and cheeses directly from simple plant ingredients. Their foods are designed to have the delicious taste and texture of animal products, but no cholesterol, hormones, antibiotics, or contaminants ? and require far less land, water and energy to produce. They start with plants, such as grains, greens and beans and separate proteins, fats, and other nutrients from each one, selecting those that give their foods desirable flavors and textures. They then combine these proteins with vitamins, amino acids, and fats, all from plants, to make their meats and cheeses. They plan to launch their first hamburger in the US in 2016. www.ImpossibleFoods.com

Chess in the park
You'll find a giant chess set in Hyde Park, Sydney at the top of Market Street. If you like playing or watching chess it's a must see. There are 2 cafes nearby that have a lovely outlook, particularly on a sunny day- a great place to meet friends in the city.

Publicity for sale
PayPress is a new platform that plans to connect startups to reporters who are interested in earning extra money. The startups select the publication they'd like to be featured in and pay on the platform. Paypress say they have already signed up over 50 publications like the Huff Post. This service could disrupt the PR agency business in terms of its ability to charge new clients. It could also be very attractive to journalists as PR agencies haven't traditionally paid them. www.paypress.co
