Romance is already in the air and commercials for lavish jewels and floral arrangements are all over the place. Celebrating Valentine's Day might feel like you'll have to shell out money to prove that you care, but the quality time you spend together is priceless.

How Financial Literacy Affects Your Income, Debt and Wealth Levels

How Financial Literacy Affects Your Income, Debt and Wealth Levels

Chloe Harris - Featured writer

Financial literacy is understanding money: how it’s earned, spent, and grown. It also extends on how money is used to help others. Research indicates that financial literacy has a critical correlation to income, debt, wealth accumulation, and retirement planning.

Credit Capital’s senior credit advisor, Alistaire Claire, emphasises its importance,” Learning and applying basic finance concepts in your everyday life is the way to financial security. Without the right knowledge, it’s easy to commit huge financial mistakes. It is through lack of financial literacy that people fall for fraud investment schemes and credit card debts. Just knowing the basics can provide you with a level of protection.”

Patrick Allen Boon jailed for murdering Fred Tuffs on job site off Culgoora Rd between Narrabri and Wee Waa in 2017

A concreter who murdered his boss in the break room of a local worksite with "savagery and ferocity" has been jailed for at least 13 years and 10 months.

Queensland man Patrick Allen Boon struck grandfather Frederick Tuffs over the head with a sledgehammer several times and then continued the bashing with a wrench near Narrabri, on June 13, 2017.

The 57-year-old site manager died in hospital the next morning.

Boon, who pleaded guilty to murder in May, was on Friday jailed for 18 years and six months, with a minimum term of 13 years and 10 months.

We bought a farm to have more family time. We're risking it all to join a natural farming revolution

We bought a farm to have more family time. We're risking it all to join a natural farming revolution

About a year ago, the purchase of two dairy cows led to the discovery of a revolution in our paddocks.

My partner and I, two young farmers, learned we could rehabilitate the natural environment by the way we farm.

But the stakes were high — making the switch from conventional to conservation farming could send us broke.

So we set out to meet a network of regenerative farmers who are working with nature to eliminate the use of chemicals, revegetate their land, reduce carbon emissions and encourage the return of native plant and animal species.

The lure of a new approach

Our property, on the outskirts of Narrabri in north-west New South Wales, is about 130 acres of mostly farmed-up country.

There are very few trees but we have beautiful black soil and a stunning view of the mountain range to our east.

STATE WIDE ‘STAY AT HOME’ A MESSAGE FROM ROY BUTLER, MEMBER FOR BARWON

STATE WIDE ‘STAY AT HOME’ A MESSAGE FROM ROY BUTLER, MEMBER FOR BARWON

Over the weekend I caught an interview with one of our small business owners in Barwon, she said words to the effect of ‘if we survived the worst drought on record, huge dust storms, and a mice plague what’s a little lockdown?’
I know we’ve been battered over the last few years, and we were just starting to come through it all – farming was back, people had a bit of money to spend in town, and our grass was getting greener – this COVID outbreak has come at a time when times were getting better.
