NTEU statement regarding Christchurch tragedy

NTEU sends its deepest sympathies to all New Zealanders, to those New Zealanders who are Muslim, and our most heartfelt sympathy to those who lost family. 
There is no hiding from Australia’s role in this tragedy. We must own it. It comes after more than a decade of race baiting and hatred from elements among those in political office, self-aggrandising commentators and media proprietors.

Here’s a fun exercise: put the word “research” through Google’s search engine function and prepare to have your mind slightly blown. In 0.37 seconds, some 4.72 billion results are identified! Clearly, there’s a lot out there on ‘research’ – with some resources attempting to define exactly what research is and others presenting the results of investigative exercises that provide examples of how research can be conducted and the wide array of findings that can be generated. In the age of the knowledge economy/society, data is vital and research generates crucial insights. More...
