  • Mystery of holes in Swiss cheese cracked after a century

    Eureka! After about a century of research, Swiss scientists have finally cracked the mystery of the holes in Swiss cheese. Experts from Agroscope, a state centre for agricultural research, said the phenomenon -- which marks famous Swiss cheeses such as Emmental and Appenzell -- was caused by tiny bits of hay present in the milk and not bacteria as previously thought. "It's the disappearance of the traditional bucket" used during milking that caused the difference, said Agroscope spokesman Regis Nyffeler, adding that bits of hay fell into it and then eventually caused the holes.

  • Game management the key: Cronk

    Match-winner Cooper Cronk has challenged NSW to lift for the second Origin bout at the MCG, declaring Queensland's superior game management got them home in Sydney. The Blues' attack was disjointed in the final stages of the 11-10 loss to the Maroons in the series opener at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday night, while Queensland kept their shape under pressure. NSW head to game two in Melbourne on June 17 under enormous pressure, thanks largely to halfback Cronk, who starred with a first-half try and a field goal six minutes from fulltime.

  • BUSINESS BREAKDOWN: Kiwi slumps as Fonterra forecast stokes concerns

    The New Zealand dollar dropped to a four-year low after investors grew wary about the country's economy after Fonterra Cooperative Group trimmed its forecast payout to farmers for the current season, and announced a fairly soft hike for 2015/16. Fonterra yesterday cut its forecast payout to farmers for this season by 10 cents to $4.40 per kilogram of milk solids, from a record $8.40/kgMS last season, and said it expects to pay $5.25/kgMS next season as prices for dairy products stay lower for longer than expected. Fonterra said the dairy market is still going to be tough in 2016, even as Chinese buyers cautiously return to the market, and warned there's still a supply imbalance due to good growing conditions in most dairy producing areas around the world.

  • Russia's nuclear threats 'deeply troubling': NATO chief

    Russia's provocative rhetoric and its dramatic expansion of flights by nuclear bombers are deeply troubling and dangerous, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday. Russia's plans to deploy nuclear-capable missiles in Kaliningrad -- near Poland's border -- and its threat to move nuclear forces in Crimea would "fundamentally change the balance of security in Europe," Stoltenberg warned, in speech during a visit to Washington.
