William Barak apartment tower portrait revealed

"After six months under wraps, a 31-storey portrait of indigenous leader William Barak was momentarily revealed to the world on Monday. The 85-metre face has been created in the balconies of a new Grocon apartment building at the former Carlton United and Brewery site on Swanston Street. ...

William Barak was an elder of Melbourne's Wurundjeri tribe, an artist and social justice leader, credited with 'building a bridge between black and white culture'. He died in 1903."

The reality of shark fin soup served at Chinese wedding banquets

"The majority of the demand for shark meat is from the shark-fin industry, centered in Asia. Singapore is one of the main consumer countries, along with Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia and Thailand. For every Chinese wedding banquet in Singapore that serves shark fin soup, the world loses another 40-50 sharks."
