After years of controversy, setbacks and backlash, Aussie legend Delta Goodrem has finally had the last laugh and proved the haters wrong.

Sporting legends, a bushfire hero and a billionaire mining magnate are among the household names included in this year’s Australia Day Honours list.

But now, Goodrem has had the last laugh, after being honoured “for significant service to the not-for-profit sector, and to the performing arts”.Billionaire mining magnate Gina Rinehart also made the list, earning an AO (Officer of the Order of Australia), which is awarded “for distinguished service of a high degree to Australia or to humanity at large”.

But now, Goodrem has had the last laugh, after being honoured “for significant service to the not-for-profit sector, and to the performing arts”. Along with her many singing and acting accolades, Goodrem was also recognised for her philanthropy, including launching the Delta Goodrem Foundation and supporting St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney as an ambassador of the Haematology, Blood and Marrow Transplant Ward’s fundraising campaign and as a patron of The Kinghorn Cancer Centre. According to a report in Nature , researchers say it does not exist and is probably the result of laboratory contamination. Gina Rinehart Billionaire mining magnate Gina Rinehart also made the list, earning an AO (Officer of the Order of Australia), which is awarded “for distinguished service of a high degree to Australia or to humanity at large”. University of Newcastle criminologist Dr Xanthe Mallett says Terence Kelly’s guilty plea was not surprising. Rinehart received the gong for “distinguished service to the mining sector, to the community through philanthropic initiatives, and to sport as a patron”. He and his team named this “deltacron”, and uploaded 25 of the sequences to the public database GISAID (the Global Initiative on Sharing Avian Influenza Data), which has an international platform dedicated to the COVID-19 pandemic, with tools to support the rapid sharing and interpreting of genetic data. Along with her role as executive chairman at Hancock Prospecting Pty Ltd, which she has held since 1992, Rinehart has also supported a range of sports including swimming, volleyball and rowing, has served as founder and chair of the Georgina Hope Foundation since 2012 and has supported many charities and not-for-profits.

Mining billionaire Gina Rinehart has also received a gong. The Cypriot team posted another 27 sequences. Kelly had been arrested in Carnarvon in the early hours of November 3 — nearly three weeks after the young girl vanished from her family’s tent at the remote Quobba Blowholes campsite. Deborra-lee Furness The actor received an AO “for distinguished service to children as an adoption advocate, to not-for-profit organisations as an ambassador, and to the arts”. Furness, who has been married to Aussie star Hugh Jackman since 1996, was recognised for her acting career, as well as her extensive charitable work, and adoption advocacy. Many shook their heads, saying the sequences were not the result of recombination, which involves the genetic sharing of information between them, but probably came about from a very common type of laboratory contamination. Furness and Jackman share two adopted children, Oscar and Ava, after struggling for years to conceive naturally. Cleo was ultimately found safe and alive nearly three weeks later in Kelly’s locked house, after detectives forced their way in. Over the years the couple have spoken about their difficult fertility and adoption journey, and Furness has worked tirelessly to overhaul Australia’s “archaic” adoption rules, founding the Adopt Change organisation in 2008.” The Cypriot team said aspects of its original hypothesis were misconstrued, with the media mistakenly taking it to mean the two variants had formed a hybrid. "Lawn prawns", or "leaf hoppers" as they are sometimes called, are not an insect at all but a crustacean, and a relative of the prawn.

Rather, it combined characteristics of delta and omicron and was the result of “evolutionary pressure”. Dr Mallett said the guilty plea would ‘significantly reduce’ the trauma on Cleo and her parents. Fitzsimmons became a household name during the devastating 2019–20 Australian bushfire season, which became known as Black Summer. Aussies were blown away by Fitzsimmons’ calm and effective leadership , with firefighters also rushing to pay tribute to his grit and determination in the face of disaster. Some scientists have dismissed deltacron as just another “scariant” like “flurona”, a combination of flu and coronavirus. Fitzsimmons was named Australian Father of the Year in 2020, and NSW Australian of the Year in 2021. “But this means they don‘t have to go to any more of that process and they can start to move on so I think for the family, this is a really significant change for them and hope to spot them peace. Most people have no idea "lawn prawns" exist because they like hiding in soil and under leaf litter.

Bushfire hero Shane Fitzsimmons received an AO. Currently, there is talk about a French variant known as BA.

Paralympian and media personality Dylan Alcott also received an AO for “distinguished service to Paralympic sport, particularly to tennis, and as a role model for people with disability, and to the community through a range of organisations”. Anyone can nominate any Australian for an award in the Order of Australia. Some applaud the ability of the scientific community to self-correct quickly, but others are concerned that fear of committing a public error could make researchers hesitant to share time-sensitive data, which is how new variants are revealed. If you know someone worthy, nominate them .
