Welcome back. That's an interesting journey.
I do tend to enjoy the actual design and building bits of The Block (the faux drama I can live without)
If only someone made a cut-down version ...
I'd want it to be the most well-informed decision they've ever made.
If the law distinguishes between terminal illness and disability where does something like child cancer fit?
Actually I suppose some progressive impairments become terminal too. I imagine you would need to satisfy the medical and psychological criteria even more rigorously if parents are making that decision on behalf of a child, or the child does not have enough life experience or reasoning ability to make such a decision.
Drinnan notes how this fits with Mediaworks' overall punt on reality telly, led by Julie Christie.
A reliance on reality TV has been evident since Christie joined the MediaWorks board in June last year as it emerged from receivership. Last month - in a an unorthodox decision - she was named manager of digital strategy for television and video.
Chief executive Mark Weldon, who started in August, is new to TV and has come to rely on Christie's expertise.
His main job is to find ways to sell the company and take it off the hands of banks and investors who lost money through the receivership.
The reality TV strategy and Henry show are a big part of that.
how does that work, linguistically?
Large-scale stereotypes create strange assumptions because so many people's real lives end up so far apart from the stories. Many of us learned that disability is the same as being sick for a long time. That's because we understand being ill, for a short time.
She is such a great journalist.
After reading that, I wonder why we would bundle permanently disabled people with terminally ill people?
Why not legally permit early death only for the latter group? Would remove some of the obvious fishhooks.
is that his real twitter account?
Guess that's why they choose relative unknowns from another country, so the backlash doesn't matter to them. #nasty
