Today on Morning Brew, we're off down under at 10.10 with Jarrod Watt, who has a few questions to answer this morning: When is an exam question for a business degree at one of Melbourne’s universities news for China? Will the Adani mining company be able to negotiate free coal from the huge - and hugely controversial - mine it proposes? And what happens when one of Australia’s southern islands wants to secede? Answers on my desk before assembly, please! At 10.40, Dr. Merrin Pearse will be with us to talk about what he was asked to discuss with the New Zealand Prime Minister at dinner on Friday night by his Facebook Friends. Also, a little Testudine for you, as today is World Turtle Day. After 11, we welcome back legendary pop music manager, author, and now film maker Simon Napier-Bell. Apart from managing some of the most famous acts of the 60s and 70s, Simon famously persuaded the Chinese government to let his band WHAM play Beijing in 1985, and he's recently released a film called "50 years legal". Plenty to talk about this morning. After 12, Business Futurist Morris Miselowski returns with more on what "could be", including "is there much wisdom in companies time releasing new gadgets for profit and novelty appeal, when most applications seem to have a limited lifespan anyway, whether we like it or not?". Java was released today in 1995. 20 odd years later, its verging on extinct. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
