- Australian Capitalism And Gst - 1,033 words

It shows that keeping food GST-free would make a major beneficial difference for low income households, especially pensioners and low income families. (ACOSS Media Release 13 April 1999). Although Michael Raper concedes that the Government have achieved equity in some areas, he still reiterates that it is not equitable for food to be subject to consumption tax since it accounts for 30 - 40% of all expenditure (not income) of low income families. This inequity is increased when t ...

Museum MUSEUM TRIP When this project was brought to my attention at the beginning of the semester I didn't know what to expect.

- Reversals - 577 words
Reversals annon 'Youth is wasted on the young.' And 'if I only knew then what I know now!' In my teen years I couldn't be bothered with trying to understand those cryptic phrases; didn't I already know everything I needed to know?

I always felt that I would never look back upon my life and say 'I wish I had taken more time in considering my choices.' But I have found myself doing just that. If I were able to rewrite history, I would pick a different career when I reenlisted in the Army, I would seek out opportunities to enhance my future job options, and finally, I would have don ...

Shortly after Woodstock, Hoffmans dream was badly wounded if not destroyed by the Rolling Stones and the Hells Angels at Altamont. The Stones had hired the Hells Angels as security for the show, and from the start the vibes were bad. Gitlin recalls that the majority of the crowd was on acid and having bad trips.
