10:20 800 arrested in Melbourne protests

There've been four days of protests in Melbourne - leading to hundreds of arrests - they've been protesting against the lockdown and demanding a vaccine mandate for the construction industry be lifted. On Wednesday, police shot rubber bullets and pepper rounds at hundreds of protesters who gathered at the city's Shrine of Remembrance locked in a stand-off with riot police.  Things were a bit quieter yesterday - but its a public holiday there today and things have flared up. Rebekah Holt is a New Zealand journalist based in Melbourne.

10:30 The death of shorthand in journalism school
Have you ever wondered how journalists take notes in this modern technological age? You don't see many with notebooks anymore - it's all recorded on smartphones. So is there any need for them to learn shorthand?  It seems the death of shorthand is upon us as journalism schools phase out the craft. The head of Massey University Journalism School, James Hollings, tells Bryan Crump, they phased it out last year and it seems they were the last school to drop the subject.
