As campaign funds run low, Trump requests meeting with billionaire Koch Brothers - only a year after he mocked his Republican rivals as 'puppets' for doing the same

Koch Industry officials have agreed to meet with Donald Trump after a request from the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, as GOP insiders say a diminishing campaign chest may force Trump to ramp up his fundraising efforts.

Charles Koch revealed the planned meeting on Wednesday.

But Koch, a powerful political force who famously uses his deep pockets to fund libertarian and free-market projects, has not entirely warmed to Trump.

In an interview with USA Today, the industrialist said he doesn't 'know the answer' as to whether Trump is fit to be president.

A teenage photographer whose medical condition confined her to a wheelchair as a child says she loves the ocean because it makes her feel completely free.

Shannon Glasson learned to swim before she could walk, and spends as much time as she possibly can in water.

'What are cops going to do, arrest us for standing in the street?': Rogue anti-lockout law protests planned in Kings Cross after Supreme Court shuts down demonstration with 4,500 attendees

Police have shut down a planned protest Saturday night in Sydney's Kings Cross but rogue demonstrators opposed to NSW's lockout laws still vowed to turn up.

The state's Supreme Court sided with police in a decision Friday to curb a public assembly organised by the advocacy group Keep Sydney Open.

'Obviously both Keep Sydney Open and our followers were bitterly disappointed. We felt the judgement was unfair,' the group's campaign director Tyson Koh told Daily Mail Australia.

Sydney's housing market second most expensive in the world

Incoming NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has made it one of her top priorities to address the state's housing affordability crisis.

That issue is more pressing than ever, as it was revealed on Tuesday that Sydney homes are the second most expensive in the world - topped only by Hong Kong.

'I want to make sure that every average, hard-working person in this state can aspire to own their own home,' Ms Berejiklian told reporters at a press conference before being sworn into the state's top political job on Monday.

Could Airbnb landlords be hit with a huge tax bill? Homeowner slugged $7,000 for renting out his home - by controversial robot controlled system

ax experts warn the government is using computer-generated debt collection systems to collect money from Airbnb landlords.

Jeff Thompson is one of the many Australians who have been shocked to receive auto-generated debt notices from tax authorities - caught in a data-crunching government crackdown that tax experts say is marred by the same problems as the recent Centrelink debt debacle.

Mr Thompson, 51, who rented out his Hobart home while he fulfilled his dream of sailing across the Pacific, chose to fight the collectors, who claimed he owed $7,000 in land tax.

But many homeowners who choose to comply with so-called robo-debt letters without seeking legal advice could become liable for thousands of dollars of retrospective fees, tax experts say.

A female Peace Corps volunteer who accused a male American official of sexually assaulting women in Albania claims the government agency fired her.

The accused man, meanwhile, was given the option to resign without facing misconduct charges, said the whistle blower, Bonnie Scott.

These allegations have surfaced after a CBS News investigation revealed that roughly one in five Peace Corps volunteers are sexually assaulted during their service.

12-year-old boy was shot dead within ONE SECOND of police arrival

The 12-year-old boy who was shot dead by Cleveland police last year had his hands in his pockets when he was killed and wasn't reaching for the fake gun he was carrying, according to new frame-by-frame analysis of surveillance footage of last November's fatal incident.

An expert hired by the family of slain middle-schooler Tamir Rice to review surveillance video found that the boy was shot within one second of the police officers' arrival.

The two officers were responding to a call about an armed man in a park on the afternoon of November 22, 2014.

Rice was carrying a replica gun capable of firing non-lethal plastic pellets.
