FIVE THINGS: COUNTING FURNITURE, NOT SHEEP
Friday 5 April, 2019

Having trouble sleeping? IKEA is jumping on the podcast bandwagon with an interesting solution. In other news, the Royal family is making social media headlines again, we reveal the 'real' loser of the federal budget and a town you've never heard of is about to be put on the map.

1. COUNTING FURNITURE, NOT SHEEP

IKEA Australia has launched a podcast to help us sleep better. The IKEA Sleep Podcast is a soothing, 35-minute recording reciting the furniture giant's product names. Hosted by two Swedish-Australian workers, we think this is subliminal advertising at its best!

2. ROYAL REVEAL 

Royalists rejoice! Ahead of the much-anticipated birth of their first child, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have launched their own Instagram account, @Sussexroyal. Could the Duke and Duchess be ditching the traditional baby reveal photo opp to go down a more modern route? #babysussex

3. GETTING ANTSY

This week the Federal Government announced its budget, and the surprising loser was... ants. A casual $27.5 million was put towards the eradication of Red Fire Ants and the Yellow Crazy Ant (yes, its real name). We're eagerly awaiting the response from the Opposition – free cockroach extermination for all?

4. BULLIES TORN DOWN

Melbourne and Essendon AFL players will run through a banner covered in abusive tweets ahead of their game tonight. Sourced from real messages the athletes have received during their careers, the symbolic act is part of Reach's ‘Let’s tear online bullying down’ campaign.

5. BRANDE NEW TOWER

Western Europe is about to get its tallest skyscraper, but you won't find the 320m tower in Paris or Berlin – rather a rural town in Denmark. The interesting venture by European fashion giant Bestseller hopes to put its hometown Brande, population 7,000, on the map.
