The Fall in the value of the Australian Dollar against the US Dollar

By Jay Shah Over the last few months we have seen a steady decline in the value of the Australian Dollar against the US Dollar and also other currencies such as the Pound Sterling.  What effect does that have on Aboriginal Art?

DID A BITCH WIND BLOW ABORIGINAL ART ONTO THE WORLD STAGE?

The insinuated anthropological terminology given to destructive natural disasters such as Tracy has 'Her' with the best of them. Calamities on this scale are often given female names.
