“They can have a typical day at the footy just like everybody else. Mum and Dad can go to the footy, watch their child play, just like a regular family. So, that’s all you want in life, really.” – Suellen Betts, team manager #abc730
"We try to accommodate everyone. It’s all ability. So even if we've got to carry you around out there, we’ll figure out a way to get you a kick." – Graeme Glanville, coach #abc730
Footy and all the rituals that come with it is a big part of community life for families across Australia. For more than a decade, one team in regional Victoria has ensured all players are included in that experience – no matter what their ability. #abc730
"[Future generations] are not here to vote or to negotiate on this, but we're here to ensure that they have a world that's wonderful to live in as the planet that we're on now." – Bob Brown, former Greens leader #abc730
"That's very symbolic, that 43 per cent. It's got no teeth in it. It is not going anywhere. We all know it is far too low, but there is no mechanism attached to the legislation as I understand it to make that 43 per cent work." – Bob Brown, former Greens leader #abc730
" The Greens at the moment are making it very clear that they want a substantial outcome. Adam Bandt has been saying that before the election and since the election, and they have a mandate along with the teal independents." – Bob Brown, former Greens leader #abc730
"Nearly 2 million Australians voted for much greater action than Labor was putting forward, the Labor prescription of 43 per cent. And certainly, it doesn't involve much action. It's much like business and usual." – Bob Brown, former Greens leader #abc730
"What is more alarming ... is that we're putting our foot on the accelerator of the very causes of that loss in terms of more destruction of fisheries, most loss of forests and more warming of the atmosphere and more burning of coal." – Bob Brown, former Greens leader

“Those symptoms, there’s over 100 of them, so it’s a real eclectic mix of symptoms … fatigue is really common, lethargy, breathlessness [and] brain fog.” – Assoc. Prof. Anthony Byrne, St Vincent’s Hospital #abc730
“You’re waking up with different levels of breathlessness, and you just don’t quite know how you’re going to feel. It’s definitely this rollercoaster. Some days and weeks are good … and then all of a sudden you’ll come crashing back down.” – Belinda Fraser #abc730
“We’ve seen patients that have got symptoms for six months, 12 months, and some even for two years – but this is a new condition, it’s a new virus, so we don’t have long-term data.” – Assoc. Prof. Anthony Byrne, St Vincent’s Hospital #abc730
Long COVID is one of the mysteries of the pandemic. There are limited follow-up services in Australia for the growing number of people suffering symptoms, and an urgent need to understand the condition and identify who amongst us is most likely to experience it. #abc730

“The family received the news with great sadness, heartache and anger. Yusuf didn’t need to die. We were in this ridiculous situation where we knew where he was, we knew he was underage. There would have been a very easy request to get him to safety.” – Kamalle Dabboussy #abc730
“This was a boy who spent his time on his bicycle playing, living a very normal life in Sydney. Suddenly he’s in the middle of a warzone with one of the world’s most notorious terrorist groups.” – Letta Tayler, Human Rights Watch #abc730

"Our position in terms of new projects in coal or gas, or any of the new renewable energy projects too, is that they are largely dependent on issues like financing ... nd also the environment laws as they exist both in state and federal." – @SenKatyG #abc730
