SF writer Greg Egan states that he appears on no photos on the web (and has written a funny essay about how Google despite this tries to assign him a photo).

(I’m pretty sure Egan must be in the background of some crowd snap somewhere, just no known photos)

Auspol and cost of living (stats)
ABS Cost of living stats for the March quarter have just been released, and they're sharp:
"Annual increases in living costs ranged between 3.8 per cent for Employee households and 4.9 per cent for Age pensioner households in the March 2022 quarter"
"In the March 2022 quarter, Age pensioner (+2.3 per cent) and Other government transfer recipient (+2.1 per cent) households recorded the largest quarterly rises since the September 2000 quarter, following the introduction of the goods and services tax (GST)."
The media release is at https://www.abs.gov.au/media-centre/media-releases/pensioners-experience-higher-increases-living-costs and explains how LCI differs from CPI.
