The Yarra River Business Association tends to rename the river to Birrarung in order to properly recognize its root history. This is part of a bold plan to revive the area, and the organization also offers the idea of a European-style promenade, pool and garden bridge. “We will support any emphasis on waterways, and whether it will be on the water or on the banks of the river.” said the President John Foreman It is supposed that the early settlers of Australia incorrectly translated the current name of the river and that “Birrarung” is its traditional Wurundjeri name, .
Acting Lord Mayor of the Melbourne City Council, said he would reach out to indigenous stakeholders before taking any stand on this issue, he offers to call the river Birrarung Yarra. He adds, it's a really great way to respect Aboriginal culture.
However, the acting Prime Minister James Merlino rejected the idea, claiming that Yarra is the "icon" of Melbourne.

Josie Gonzalez, was a qualified lawyer, who once worked for a prestigious company in Melbourne, but is now in jail for catching $ 17.4 million in fraud. Together with her 51-year-old husband-lawyer Alvaro Gonzalez, she developed a scheme to deceive her employer in an insurance company, using fake invoices to pay for legal services, including for lawyers who had never heard of the business. Between March 2011 and June 2013, she sent more than 428 false accounts to Dale Australia from Jaag Lawyers, a company named after herself.
But the judge Paul Lacava said that today the company has neither offices nor customers. The couple pleaded no guilty to 14 charges of financial gain by fraud, but was convicted by the jury earlier this year.
The jury would never agree with their defense that the bill was $ 17.4 million. The United States targeted the actual legal services provided by such associates in just two years. He did not say that there was no regret for their insult, and despite the fact that the money was fully repaid, they did not apologize. He ordered her to spend at least seven years in a nine-year and six-month prison term. Alvaro Gonzalez will be eligible for parole after five years of his seven and a half years. Judge Lacava said the punishment included some mercy for the sake of their two little daughters, who would grow up with both parents.

Usual using of one or two bins for garbage will be changed. The project director at Infrastructure Victoria says, that it's needed to have sorted litter, as glass breaks, paper and cardboard get tiny particles of glass in it, so it's very difficult to extract material, which can be recycled. She adds, earlier we could ignore it, but now it is turning into global crisis. Now people should use six or more bins to solve recycling crisis in Victoria. Since China had refused to recieve litter from the other countries, Victorian garbage just was on at landfills, creating risk of fire. Also, the government urge people to use organic waste product in 'energetic' goals, that is already happening in Australia, and to use more recycled products, than new single-used plastic.
