Breakfast tips and the world’s best dips, this week on Telstra Media

Telstra-Media-091214-HERO

Welcome to your weekly Telstra Media wrap, where we bring you the five biggest news stories from the week, every Friday.

It is with extreme sadness that my team and I reported the intense, tragic siege in Sydney this week. The nation watched in horror as it unfolded, and I extend my condolences to the families of those who lost their lives. Sky News followed the entire terrifying event as it continued through the night, and covered the tributes paid by families at the shrine in Martin Place. All we can do in these situations is report the facts as sensitively as possible.

Around the rest of the network, and on a much lighter note, there was a meteor shower early Monday morning that brought star-gazers (and amateurs like myself) out into the night air to take in the amazing sight.

Early the next morning before work I hit up LifeStyle (as I regularly do now when I’m left flailing for a meal with little time or energy) and, as always, they came through with the goods. Their awesome breakfast recipes collection had me sorted. I noticed another recipe collection that I slotted into my bookmarks too: Christmas breakfast recipes. Time to impress the rellies.

Telstra Cyber Security Report 2014

Cyber-Security-hero

The internet presents a world of social connectivity, economic growth and endless opportunities to innovate.

The rapid rate of technology evolution has fundamentally changed the nature of telecommunications service providers such as ourselves. Telcos have moved to becoming a business partner in accelerating digital adoption and collaboration between employees, suppliers and, most importantly, customers.

Unfortunately, some people use this rapidly changing technology landscape to do harm. These can be individuals, issue-motivated groups, cyber criminals or nation states.They present a cyber threat.

Holiday hotspots: our mobile network has your summer covered

summer-holidays-hero

It is around this time of year where the focus shifts from work and school to summer holidays somewhere along the vast Australian coast line. And if network traffic is anything to go by, people are packing their smartphones and tablets along with their beach towels.

Looking back on network traffic trends from previous years, we can see that almost 95 per cent of Australia’s popular holiday destinations* are located on the coast, with place like Lorne in Victoria, Robe in South Australia, Bateman’s Bay in NSW, Surfers Paradise in Queensland and Dunsborough in Western Australia experiencing a dramatic increase in network traffic last year.

Football scores a great goal

soccer-hero

Football – or soccer as some call it – is on the verge of another new dawn.

In 2005, the World Game captured the imagination of every Australian household when our Socceroos qualified for their first World Cup in a generation.

Today, almost 10 years after John Aloisi’s penalty put our sport forever into Australian folklore, we are celebrating a decade of the domestic competition, the Hyundai A-League, we are preparing to host one of Asia’s largest sporting events, the Asian Cup and we are celebrating the achievements of a small club from Sydney’s Western suburbs who have just been crowned champions of Asian Club football.

We‘ve all heard the statistics about participation, increasing television audiences, growing crowds and improving standards but there truly has never been a more exciting time to follow, participate or fall in love with the world game.

And I’m pleased today to see that one of Australia’s iconic companies, Telstra, has taken a leap of faith in our great game by partnering with the sport I love for the next 3 years as the FFA’s Official Telecommunications Partner.

International champions cup exclusive, super salads and a sad passing on Telstra Media this week

Telstra-Media-121214-hero

Welcome to your weekly Telstra Media wrap, where we bring you the five biggest news stories from the week, every Friday.

I know Summer is here when the cricket kicks off, and for obvious reasons it’s been top of mind for a lot of us lately. The First Test was an emotional one – I can’t imagine having to play after losing a teammate and a friend, but our boys pushed through. We put out some great images across Telstra Media showing the First Test and SportsFan are covering the match as it continues.
