Starting in September, Australians will have the opportunity to vote on the issue of same-sex marriage in Australia via a postal survey. There’s a lot of information to take in and not all of the language is easy to understand. We’ve collated everything we know about the survey right here.
Next week, the biggest star in mixed martial arts will face off against the biggest star in boxing in what is destined to be the most lucrative and ridiculous fight in the history of sports.

If you're planning to watch the match live - and a huge chunk of humanity is - here are all the ways to tune in from Australia. We've also included pub venues, fighter statistics, Mayweather Vs McGregor start time, betting odds and everything else a fighting fan needs to know.
Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. Today we are featuring a bracing and briny favourite of mine that I have been sipping on for years: The polarising Pickletini.
It's become common for companies such as Google to do targeted software releases, limiting access through region, platform or device. For Google Search Lite, a snappier and slimmer version of the current Search app, is currently restricted to just a few locations... and none of them are Australia. Fortunately, you can manually install the APK if you want to give it a try.
Chicken breasts are not very exciting, but they are a versatile protein with a pretty healthy image, and for that reason people tend to buy and cook a lot of them. Unfortunately, their lopsided, teardrop shape makes them a pain to cook well, and one can end up with a piece of meat that is juicy but flavourless on one end, and dry and charred on the other.
When you see a video online that seems a bit too wild to be true, chances are it probably is. Along with fake news stories, fake viral videos are all over Facebook and YouTube, a lot of them made by people who know what they're doing, which makes it hard to determine whether or not they're on the up and up. Fake videos like that one of a bald eagle snatching a child, or the video of a friend accidentally causing another's death, can be alarming when you don't realise they're stunts.
Over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, white supremacists held a rally that escalated into violence. An activist, a paralegal named Heather Heyer, was killed after a man drove his car into a crowd of protesters. I usually write about video games on this site, but today I need to talk about my dad, who marched in Selma in 1965.

Talking about sex with friends is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, being able to be open and honest about sex is critical to developing a healthy relationship with your sexuality. And sometimes you just need advice from your friends. On the other hand, your sex life is usually something you have in common with a partner a, and they don't get a say in what you reveal to your pals. When you think about one of your partners sharing information about you it makes you think twice about divulging all the juicy details to your friends, right?
While computers are poor at creativity, they are adept at crunching through vast numbers of solutions to modern problems where there are numerous complex variables at play. Take the question of finding the best delivery plan for a distribution company — where best to begin? How many vehicles? Which stretches of road need to be avoided at which times? If you want to get close to a sensible answer, you need to ask a computer.
Recently, a new staff member started at Lifehacker. She booted up her brand-new, company-issued MacBook Pro, and went to plug in her EarPods to listen to some tunes while she worked. She was met with the same baffling conundrum as other Apple die-hards who rush to procure the latest release: Why the hell can't you use the iPhone 7's Lightning connector headphones with the new MacBook Pro?
