Summary Australia Post issues: Australia Post has announced it's cutting 900 jobs, as the business struggles with the cost of delivering letters door to door each day. That part of the business has been losing money for years, and the company predicts it'll only get worse. But there is one part of this business that's picking up. And it demonstrates how the internet is both the cause of and solution to all of Australia Post's problems.
Refugee camp: Three years ago, it was just an empty space in the middle of the desert in Jordan. Now, it's a huge town of tents, housing more than 100,000 people. For World Refugee Day, BtN is taking a closer look at the Zaatari Refugee Camp, where 50 percent of the inhabitants are kids. What is life really like there? And what does the future hold for these people fleeing conflict?
5 cent change : Parking meters don't always take them. Vending machines often don't either. 5 cent coins are the coin no one really wants. So are 5 cent coins worth keeping? The Australian Mint says it's considering ditching its smallest denomination coin, because they actually cost 6 cents to make. We take a look at the way our currency is made, and the job it plays in our economy, to decide if the 5 cent should be cashed out for good.
Brazil profile : The 2014 Soccer World Cup is now underway in Brazil and billions of people will tune in to watch it over the next month. But the host country has had a rocky lead up to the big event, with protests and violence drawing attention away from the sporting spectacle. As the everyone else focuses on the pitch, BtN will bring you a closer look at this country and the people that live there.
Reality TV : Reality TV has become the most popular genre on our screens. We love tuning in to see the highs and lows of our favourite and least favourite contestants as they compete for big prizes. But is reality TV really that close to reality? BtN uncovers how TV production techniques are used to make reality more exciting.
