When unemployment is taken into account, the proportion of people aged 15 to 24 who are either without work or enough hours of work is now at 31.5 per cent.

The so-called “under-utilisation rate” which combines unemployment and underemployment levels is higher than it was during the 1990s recession.

Josh Sandman, 19, is one of 659,000 young ns who are either unemployed or underemployed – having some work, but wanting more hours.

He does 10 hours a week of volunteer work as a freelance graphic designer in the hope it will lead to a full-time job. He had about 20 hours a week of paid work at a takeaway food outlet in Adelaide until a couple of weeks ago.

“If I had lost my job and was not living at home I would be on a couch or homeless right now,” he said.

The new Brotherhood of St Laurence analysis shows 18 per cent of young people are underemployed, the highest level it has ever been since 1978 when the n Bureau of Statistics first started collecting the data.

Underemployment is now much higher than youth unemployment which is at 13.5 per cent.

Unemployment was less than 10 per cent and underemployment was at 11 per cent just before the global financial crisis.

The new analysis uses data from the n Bureau of Statistics, the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Survey and the Department of Employment.

To be released on Monday, the Brotherhood of St Laurence publication, Generation Stalled: young underemployed and living precariously in has found that the rise of underemployment can not be explained by the growing number of young people combining study with work.

“[T]he rise in the percentage of casual and part-time jobs has mostly been among young workers who are not studying,” the report says.

Young people are now far more likely to be in casual and part-time jobs now than they were in the year 2000. The gap between the actual hours worked and the hours young people want to work has widened.

“The employment outlook for many young ns today is profoundly different than it was when their parents and grandparents first started work,” said Tony Nicholson, executive director of the Brotherhood of St Laurence.

“The record growth of underemployment particularly hurts the 60 per cent of young people who don’t go to university – they face a much more uncertain future than previous generations.”

Mr Nicholson said in the past, young people could leave school early and get a job in a factory, mail room, bank or a state-owned enterprise get training and improve their prospects.

“They had every chance to build a good life for themselves and their families. These opportunities have shrunk as the economy has changed and insecure jobs are leading to far more uncertain prospects for the new generation,” he said.

“We need to redouble our efforts to build the capabilities of disadvantaged young people in this very challenging scenario. Tinkering with welfare payments is not the answer here.”

The prevalence of young workers who are not students on permanent contracts has fallen from 61.8 per cent in 2008 to 53.2 per cent in 2014.

The proportion of students in casual work has fallen in recent years.

Renaissance man Todd Ruppert hits Aussie boardrooms

A true renaissance man is about to hit the n corporate boardroom scene.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

The hedge fund veteran Todd Ruppert, will be joining the board of tech start-up CSB Engage when it lists on the ASX via a backdoor listing through Waratah Resources.

The company, which specialises in customer engagement and loyalty services, will be called Mobecom and forms part of a global web of interests for Ruppert.

“I have an enormous appetite to pursue a lot of different, intellectually challenging things on a global scale – my many interests are just different pieces of a puzzle. I am on the boards of companies in China, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, France – all over,” he told the Financial Times in 2014.

“The key link between these companies is that they are disrupters. Disrupters are led by people who are visionaries.”

Ruppert said much the same about his Mobecom role when speaking to the local press this month.

But Ruppert didn’t leave the high pressure world of finance to dabble in a range of business disrupters.

He is on the board of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and was a co-producer of Happy Days – The Musical, which one critic described as “a powerhouse rock and roll trip down memory lane”.

But Ruppert’s interests don’t end there.

He served as executive producer of three documentary films: A Year in Burgundy, A Year in Champagne and A Year in Port.

The latter in the trilogy is one of three finalists for movie of the year at the James Beard Awards, which have been described as the Oscars of food and wine.

And if he is looking for some distractions in the run-up to the award ceremony next month, Waratah Resources is expected to release a notice of meeting any day now to usher in the changes.

In the meantime, Ruppert might have time to consider a new movie: A Year in Bundaberg Rum. Premiership coup

While it wasn’t the score line the Sydney Swans wanted on Saturday afternoon at the SCG, when they went down to Port Adelaide, it was a small victory for Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

A new chapter was added to the government’s troubles with South when Port Adelaide Football Club president David Koch managed to get a Port scarf draped over Li’s shoulders.

The Swans fans did their ritual booing of the PM, but then one of the Sydney faithful threw a Swans scarf up, which the PM grabbed with aplomb and draped over Li to cover the Port turquoise.

Kochie tried to wrangle the Port scarf over the top, but CBD’s spy disguised as a goal post, noticed some heavy Chinese security placed a hand on the Premier’s shoulder to stop such scarf shenanigans.

Lyon stars in gripping series decider

v India Test Series 2017: Live blog and scoreboard
SuZhou Night Recruitment

???

Dharamsala: Nathan Lyon is on the cusp of slaying his subcontinental demons after delivering one of his most important performances to give a shot at a famous series victory in India.

The fight for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy hangs in the balance with the game’s two top-ranked nations locked in an unforgiving stride-for-stride slog to the post after another intense day in Dharamsala.

A day which started with ‘s backs to the wall finished with both sides having genuine belief they can emerge victorious in the foothills of the Himalayas.

started the day with pace as its trump card against India’s truncated batting line-up but by day’s end it was Lyon who was asking the most searching questions.

The most experienced player in Steve Smith’s team, Lyon rose to the occasion on the big stage, claiming four wickets in a white-knuckled final session where n hopes soared.

Pace duo Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins have a golden opportunity with the second new ball to run through India’s tail and give a priceless first-innings advantage.

will be ruing a missed chance on the shadow of stumps when Matt Renshaw put down a regulation offering at first slip to Ranchi century-maker Wriddhiman Saha, who was on nine.

In pursuit of ‘s 300, India reached stumps on the second day on 6/248 with Saha and Ravindra Jadeja looming as the danger men.

In keeping with the trend in this riveting series, just as one side appeared to gain the ascendancy, the other would wrest it back with some incisive blows.

For , it was Lyon who found his way through India’s defences just when it appeared India had found some clear air.

Lyon has been dubbed the GOAT for being ‘s highest wicket-taking finger-spinner but there remains doubts whether he truly belongs among the country’s best. Should he finish off the job here it could prove to be a career-defining performance.

Lyon’s 4/67, as it stands, does not compare favourably on paper to his career-best 8/50 in Bangalore but this effort has come on a grander stage.

Without his wickets, would most likely be staring at a significant deficit on a pitch where India’s spin trio will favour themselves of running through the visitors.

Lyon has made the most of the bounce on offer, peppering the gloves and edges of arguably the finest players in the world of spin.

He had bowled well in the first two sessions without reward – but that came almost immediately after tea when he removed India’s rock, Cheteshwar Pujara, for 57.

Perhaps alarmed by one which spun sharply earlier in the over, Pujara reached away from his body and was caught in close by Peter Handscomb.

Two overs later, Karun Nair played back to one which fizzed off the pitch onto his bat and thigh guard, giving Matthew Wade the simplest of catches.

edged their noses in front when Lyon combined with Smith, who held on to a reflex catch at first slip to remove stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane for 46.

had desperately needed Lyon’s interventions after India’s top order showed stubborn resistance to Hazlewood and Cummins against the new ball.

Their aim was purely to survive, in the belief that the pace duo were ‘s most threatening bowlers.

After relentlessly probing a fourth stump line, Hazlewood was rewarded with the wicket of Murali Vijay after enticing the opener to push at a delivery away from his body.

Cummins troubled India’s top order, consistently reaching the high 140s in two fiery spells with the new ball. He captured the wicket of Lokesh Rahul for 60 after an ill-fated pull shot ballooned to David Warner at mid-off.

Rahul had earlier been dropped on 10 by Renshaw, who failed to hold on to a bullet at first slip.

Foxtel’s rival comes ‘out of hiding’ to tempt customers

In a major challenge to Foxtel and Telstra, Fetch TV is launching a new multi-million dollar advertising campaign to “come out of hiding” and promote itself directly to consumers.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

Until now Fetch TV has relied on internet retail partners ike Optus, TPG, Dodo and iiNet to promote its device to consumers through bundled packages.

Chief executive Scott Lorson said the company has “lacked a consistent and coherent brand strategy” since launching five years ago because it had a slightly different name with each internet provider.

At the moment, Optus calls it “Yes TV by Fetch with Optus” and iiNet calls it “iiNet TV with Fetch”. But from now Dodo, iPrimus and iiNet will simply call it Fetch.

“With product, content and distribution now in great shape, the time is right to come out of hiding and create a bold consumer brand to generate awareness and understanding of the Fetch service,” Mr Lorson said.

Instead of being “Fetch TV” it will just be Fetch, and has a new tag line “We bring it” created by Jason Ross, formerly of CumminsRoss.

Fetch will spend $10 million over the next three months on radio, television, cinema and online advertising. Its internet partners will also make Fetch more prominent in their advertising, as TPG revealed at its half-year results last week.

Mr Lorson believes the roll out of the NBN provides a key opportunity for Fetch, which has been talked about as a threat to Foxtel for many years, but still only has about a fifth as many users.

The only major broadband that doesn’t offer Fetch in bundles is Telstra which has about a 50 per cent market share of retail broadband services in and is commercially aligned with Foxtel.

Foxtel is jointly owned by Telstra and News Corp while Fetch is now owned byAstro Overseas following a 2014 buyout. Astro is controlled by reclusive Malaysian billionaire Ananda Krishnan, who also owns a $4.4 billion stake in Astro Malaysia Holdings.

Foxtel’s website says it has about 2.8 million subscribing homes. It is the only subscription service that offers high definition live broadcasting through cable and satellite connections, and also provides streaming on Foxtel Play.

Its equipment also works as a personal video recorder [PVR] and can be bundled with either Telstra or Foxtel internet, but Foxtel’s equipment does not provide access to other subscription streaming services like Stan, Netflix and Amazon.

Fetch’s Puck and Mighty devices are both a personal video recorder that records free-to-air television and a gateway to catch-up streaming and subscription video on demand services like Netflix and Stan. It also provides access to subscription channels like MTV, Disney and CNN, and one-off purchases of movies and series like Game of Thrones.

At the moment Fetch has about half a million users through its retail broadband partners and its device is sold in Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi.

But as the NBN ramps up this year it is creates more sales opportunities for Fetch. The day customers switch to NBN is a tightly contested marketing moment because they often change providers and sign up to new multi-year contracts.

Internet service providers include free entertainment packages, or access to subscription services, to lure and keep customers.

“Our partnership with Fetch is critical to the success of Optus’ entertainment strategy,” Optus’ managing director of marketing and product, Ben White, said.

“Optus and Fetch have made huge strides in the past 12 months and will continue to innovate and disrupt the market. The new marketing campaign couldn’t come at a better time.”

In 2015-16 Fetch TV had total assets of $46 million and earned revenues of $120 million, up from $61 million the previous year, according to records filed with the corporate regulator.

It recorded a post-tax loss of $5.3 million, which was an improvement on the previous year’s loss of $11.6 million. Fetch employs nearly 90 people in and until now has spent about $5 million annually on advertising.

TweetFacebookRELATED:Melbourne comes alive for the F1 n Grand Prix 2017

A horror weekend for Daniel Ricciardo finished with the Red Bullstar feeling “like crap” for his home fans, and with Sebastian Vettel powering to an imperious victory at the n Grand Prix at Albert Park.

Vettel delivered a stunning display of pace and control to give Ferrari its first win since the 2015 Formula One season.

While it was a walk in the park for the German,the whole event was a nightmare for ‘slocal hero, Ricciardo, who took no meaningful part in the race after his Red Bull racer ground to a halt before the Grand Prix even started.

“It just snowballed from yesterday,” a despondentRicciardosaid afterwards.”Thefive-place grid penalty sounded bad enough, but then we had other issues. I feel like crap, but I feel for the fans too.”

Ricciardo’s demise didn’t worry the army of local Ferrari fans too much, though, as they hailed Vettel a conquering hero as he took the chequered flag to give the storied Italian team its first win in Melbourne for a decade.

“It’s unbelievable….it was quite mad when I was coming back to the pits and people waving Ferrari flags. It was incredible fun to drive,” the four time world champion said post race.

“What this team has done in the last six months has been really tough, rough as well, not easy to manage..The new car is a great reward, a great relief for everyone….but this is one race, we will have a great night but take it from there.”

Vettel enjoyed a perfect run on a warm and sunlit afternoon in the race around the lake, scoring easily from pole setter Lewis Hamilton, with Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas, in his debut for the Silver Arrows, a close third.

Vettel’s Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen was fourth, with Ricciardo’s Red Bull running mate Max Verstappen fifth. Brazilian veteran Felipe Massa in the fastest Williams rounded out the top six.

Ricciardo’s hopes of posting a maiden win in his homeland were wrecked on Saturday afternoon when he crashed his Red Bullin qualifying, ensuring he would start from tenth position on the grid -a difficult spot from which to get involved at the pointy end of the field.

His difficulties compounded overnight when his team opted to fit his car with a new gearbox after the original sustained damage in the crash, meaning he had to take a five point grid penalty and start from 15th spot.

But it all became academic on the formation lap less than half an hour before the lights went out on the Melbourne Grand Prix when his car ground to a halt out on the circuit.

His team scrambled to get the car back to the garage, and stewards told them he could start from pit lane if they could get it going.

They did,but by then the race had been underway for two laps. Ricciardo got out and ran around for 29 laps before the car ground to a halt again, this time for good.

“Sorry mate. Car is done. Let’s get the f…. out of here,” he said on the Red Bull team radio.

In reality he was a mere footnote in this race as the two men on the front row of the grid, Hamilton and Vettel, dominated the first Grand Prix of the season from the moment the lights went out.

The Briton got off to a flying start and stretched his lead to a couple of seconds over Vettel, but he could never quite get clear of the red car.

Ferrari’s pace in winter testing had been impressive and the Italian squad had indicated that they might make this season a tougher test for the dominant Mercedes than they had for the past couple of years.

Vettel showed those predictions were right on the mark, although he did have some assistance from Ricciardo’s team-mate Max Verstappen.

Hamilton pitted early (on lap 18) allowing Vettel to work his way to the front, and when Hamilton came out of the pits he found himself held up by Verstappen and unable to get past, allowing Vettel to stretch a lead he then never looked like relinquishing.

Hamilton offered no excuses, however.

“I was struggling with the grip from the get go. Sebastian was able to always answer….in terms of lap time. .I was sliding around so I had to come in.

“I then got stuck in some traffic,….but congratulations to Sebastian and Ferrari.”

Did Aldi just break the golden rule of rebrands?

Aldi food store supermarket at Franklin street Melbourne. 5th of March 2009 The Age business Picture by JOE ARMAO Photo: Joe ArmaoGerman discount supermarket Aldi is preparing to give its logo a major freshen for the first time since it launched in in 2001.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

The change is global and the supermarket giant’s most significant alteration to its banner in about 25 years.

The new logo has already been used for Aldi’s new Chinese website. It is expected to be phased in country by country – including the US and Britain – from the middle of the year.

“The principle of simplicity is reflected in the new logo. Despite an updated apearance, it still contains the typical ALDI colours,” an ALDI spokesperson said.

The current big “A” logo was developed in the early 1980s and updated slightly in 2001 and 2006.

The company said ALDI’s logo had been through a number of iterations since the end of the 1940s when the Albrecht brothers started the grocery chain.

Former Aldi executive Paul Foley said, “The Aldi brand and its vision, mission and values gets updated every seven years in line with the changes in society habits, health knowledge and opportunity.

“Every 21 years [3 x 7 years] the logo is looked at to reflect those evolutions,” said Mr Foley, who now works as a retail consultant in Austria.

“This logo change reflects the tech, modernity and cool that has been introduced to the Aldi brand in recent years.”

Aldi’s current branding has the letter “A” at the top in a light blue frame and the word “ALDI” underneath, both on a navy background. This is bounded by yellow and orange frames.

The secretive retailer has submitted two new logo designs to IP , including the one used on its Chinese website.

This one is similar to the design ns are familiar with, but has an extra red frame, blank space where the word “ALDI” is now, and a curved letter “A” rather than straight lines.

Aldi has also filed another application for a significantly different logo.

This has six large curved light blue lines again forming the letter “A” on a white background. It is unclear what this logo will be used for.

Aldi filed the applications in January. It is still a couple of steps away from registration.

Adam Ferrier, consumer psychologist and chief strategy officer of Cummins&Partners, said companies should be careful when changing logos.

“People like consistency, it helps make their decisions easier. The general rule of thumb in marketing is a logo refresh should be undetectable,” Mr Ferrier said.

He said Aldi’s current logo has a “strong utilitarian presence, that it is about functionality and keeping things basic”.

Why Married At First Sight has ripped out our hearts

If theirs was a modern-age story of Adam and Eve, Anthony would get told that he had no place in the garden of Eden. But no Nadia still falls for temptation. Damn it.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

On a brighter note, Susan plans to recommit to her Prince Charming, Sean, (who is “definitely in love with her”) and we all sigh with happiness. “I absolutely love Sean … I’m looking forward to going into the next chapter in our lives. I’m gonna completely go for the relationship. I want Sean in my life forever.”

But in one of the nastier twists of the evening, the happily ever after is not to be.

“Everyone wants to live happily ever after for the rest of their life. I know I could see her happy living on the farm… but Susan has to give up a lot to move for love. That’s a massive decision,” Sean firstly acknowledges before a dagger is driven into our hearts. But more on that later.

At the start of the episode, Anthony told a best mate. “I can’t foresee there being any huge issues” … only moving to Sydney, mate. “I’ve got to talk her around.”

“I’m confident that she’ll feel the same way and that doesn’t make me nervous because I know Nadia,” he tells the cameras.

Meanwhile Nadia says she doesn’t want to make the same mistake by moving for love only to get hurt, twice. “I need someone who is multi-faceted, someone who understands that, who gets me and not someone who pushes me into a mold. He’s very structured and quite conservative person. He’s quite rigid in some of his ways.”

She just wants an authentic Anthony who can be the father of her children, but after a nightmare (Side note: Nadia is the second bride after Sharon to rely heavily on her dreams) in which her dog gets killed by a black snake, it would seem evident that Anthony should be destined to be disposed of by pest control.

And while on the subject of omens, Nadia’s horseshoe ring from Anthony has been facing down, which means the luck has poured out.

Coach killers: Tigers have JT’s blood on their hands

The Wests Tigers players were adamant Jason Taylor’s blood wasn’t on their hands. But judging by their start to Sunday afternoon’s clash against the Melbourne Storm at Leichhardt Oval, it is all over them.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

As Ivan Cleary mulls over taking on the poisoned chalice that is the Wests Tigers coaching job, he must be having reservations about taking control of a team that picks and chooses when to fight and when to lay down.

For the first 39 minutes, the Tigers fought. Everything was going their way. But when the chips were down and fortunes changed, the Tigers just didn’t have the stomach to claw their way back.

The first half was everything Tigers fans wanted to see. But the performance said more about how the Tigers felt about their old coach rather than offering any insight into the qualities of their interim one.

If he was watching, Taylor must have been sitting at home wondering, ‘Where the hell has this been?’ as the players put their bodies in places that seven days earlier they wouldn’t have even considered.

“It’s easy to come out this week when your back is against the wall and say we’re going to react,” captain Aaron Woods said. “It was a big week … it’s easy to get up for these sorts of games. But it’s how we’re going to react next week when it dies down just a little bit,” he said.

Regardless of how pleased the Tigers were with a perceived improvement in effort, the same old alarm bells were ringing around Leichhardt as they struggled for answers when questions were asked of them.

“They wanted to play for each other,” interim coach Andrew Webster said after the game.

But the question should be asked is why haven’t they wanted to do so in the past? The “big four” want to know who will be coach before they commit to the Tigers. But judging on performances over the opening month, perhaps it’s the coach who should be deciding whether he even wants all four of them to pledge their allegiance to the club.

“Play for a win, not a contract,” one die-hard Tigers yelled from the stands as another loss drew closer.

Take nothing away from Webster. He was impressive. But the reality is this won’t be his problem in a couple of weeks. It will be Cleary’s.

The Tigers will begin to ramp up negotiations with the former Panthers and Warriors coach this week, with the board having given the green light to his recruitment.

In the aftermath of last week’s humiliating loss to Canberra, Woods reflected on a particular moment in the first half in which his side opted against taking a gift two points in favour of an all-or-nothing attacking raid. They came away empty-handed, and the captain was filthy with himself for not stepping in. He knew it was that sort of inability to control games and show cool heads under pressure that was costing the side.

Fast forward seven days – the Tigers were presented with two penalties inside the first 20 minutes. They took the two both time. It was boring. It was un-Tigers like. But it was the right call.

It allowed a team that normally gets caught up in the moment to regroup and reassess. It allowed them to control the game, and they were justly rewarded with a try.

“We stayed calm, built pressure and got points on the board ??? and that’s when the boys started believing in themselves a bit more,” the Tigers captain said.

It was a sign of maturity. It was a team finally taking some accountability for its decisions and performances. And it’s about time – because the list of people left to blame is low on names. Robbie Farah – gone. The coach who was apparently enforcing a game plan that didn’t suit – gone, too.

The next few months will be the making of Woods. This is his team, his town and his legacy could well hinge on whether he leads this young team out of the eye of the storm and once again has them dancing to the tune of Eye of the Tiger.

“That’s life in general ??? not everything is going to go your way,” Woods said. “It’s how you react and how you come out of those situations. At the moment we have had a few curve balls come our way but it’s how we’re going to get these boys out of this situation and how I can lead them. I thought today was OK.

n Daniel Ricciardo’s hopes of scoring a maiden n Grand Prix win were dashed before the race even got under way when his Red Bull Racer ground to a halt on the formation lap of the Albert Park circuit.

Ricciardo had a weekend to forget and this was the icing on the cake after he had crashed during qualifying and then been forced to take a five place grid penalty for changing his gearbox after it was damaged in that qualifying impact.

“Don’t get me wrong it’s been fun I just feel bad for everyone, the fans,” Ricciardo said post-race.

“I believe there are more people here supporting me than the others and I’m sure they would have loved me to get out there and race.”

Starting from 15th spot, the West n was warming up his car when there was an electronic failure and it ground to a halt, stuck in sixth gear.

Red Bull engineers scrambled to get the car back to the team’s garage to try and work on the problem in a bid to get the car started before the race began.

He eventually exited the race on lap 29 due to a different issue.

“That was a separate issue and I think in the end that was something to do with fuel pressure, but basically it just switched off. it was just instant. There was no procedure I could do to stay out there,” Ricciardo said.

“I think the more laps we get with this car the more we are learning. It was still valuable track time … maybe we can learn something from this race today and look forward.”

During the pre-race drama, stewards had told Red Bull that if they could get Ricciardo’s car going it would be allowed to begin from pit lane when the other 19 cars had got away.

But sadly for Ricciardo and his army of fans his pit crew could not quite achieve the impossible in time, and as the field sped away Ricciardo could only look on and wonder what might have been. He eventually got the car going and joined the field, but two laps after the race started as his team opted to use the race as an impromptu testing session.

One of his team engineers was overhead saying on team radio: “Go on Daniel, get stuck in and have fun.”
