The rollout of the National Broadband Network continues, with nbn Australia patting itself on the back recently having hit the target of having a third of the country ready, with quarterly revenues hitting $181 million. That's worth celebrating, no?

If you've been in the workplace for any extended period of time, chances are you've encountered a psychopath at some point in your career. Contrary to popular belief, not all psychopaths are serial killers or axe murderers. In fact, only a small majority of psychopaths are actually violent at all.
