The 21-year-old's death
has devastated not only

her mates here at the
ANU in Canberra, but of

course, her family
and friends beyond.

Harriet Nixon hailed from
Moss Vale but moved to

Canberra to study law,
and by all accounts, was

popular and well-liked.

Sadly, her life was cut
short after a large branch

broke off a gum tree and
knocked her unconscious

last week.

It happened at the Lost
Paradise festival in

Glenworth Valley, where
Harriet was working with a

number of others.

She died in hospital
nearly a day later.

In moving tributes posted
online, friends say

Harriet was an "incredible
woman", a "sweetheart" and

"compassionate".

"Your smile was infectious
and you had a way of

making everyone feel
at ease", remarked one

friend.

"It truly was too soon but
you touched many hearts

and minds in the time
that you were here."

Others said...

"We were all so lucky
to have witnessed her

incredible smile in
action, may she rest in

peace."

"She was the epitome of
elegance with a beautiful

manner and way
with people."

And...

"Harriet was such a
lovely young lady...

polite, beautiful
and full of life."

It's in that spirit she
will be farewelled at her

old school - Oxley College
in Bowral - on Friday

afternoon.

Mourners are asked to
wear colour, pearls and RM

Williams boots
- nothing black.

Harriet is survived by her
parents Fiona and Ralph,

and her sister Alicia.

A place during the

police and convicts were

housed.

That has gone, the
building as such but the

remains are still there so
as part of the curtilage

and it would be criminal
to have something dug up,

Cheryl Raper, who's
lived in the town for

thirty-five years says
the police paddock is a

significant part of

send to the Chinese and Korean markets. Thousands of exporters
have started the new year

with revitalised

With around seven thousand
products receiving tariff

cuts as of january one.

Farmers say it's extremely
important to have access

to the international
markets.

Our domestic market is
quite small, we still

export around two thirds
of what we produce as a

total so therefore any
opportunity that we do

have to really extract the
best value out of these

markets the better off the
whole industry will be.

The new cuts are a result
of free trade deals struck

with China and Korea.

Reducing taxes and duties
to promote business

between countries.

When we have a reduction
in tariffs it means that

we can go into that market
extract a better value for

all producers, hopefully
helping their bottom line

and increasing their
returns overall.

Under the agreement,
chipping potatoes,

cherries and natural gas
will now be exported to

Korea tariff free.

seafood, and some fruits

will enter the Chinese

Science Forum. Hundreds of Year 12
students from around the Nation have Nat
descended on the Capital for the National Youth Science Forum. Now in i
its thirty-first year, the program is proving to be as popular as ever, of
opening teenagers eyes to a range of opportunities. Meet Australia's
future scientists.

I'm really interested in
the Geno project and I

like research and genetics
and I like research and

travelling so I'm looking
to see where that can take

me.

I really want to get into
medicine, I want to become

a Cardiothoracic surgeon.

More than two-hundred high
school students entering

Year 12, from around
Australia have travelled

to Canberra for the
National Youth Science

Forum.

As part of the 12-day
program, students will

undertake lectures and
workshops in their chosen

field of science,
technology, engineering or

maths.

I just had a really
interesting lecture about

Neuroscience and these
are things that I've never

though about before but
I'm learning so much about

already.

I love physics and
mathematics and I always

have and I think it's
a wonderful opportunity

especially being a female
from a rural community.

Andrew George is
volunteering this year

after completing the
program two years ago.

He is now studying a
bachelor of advanced

science, but says he came
away from the forum with

more than just a sense of
what he wanted to study.

In a way it was sort of
life changing in that I

was coming in as a sort
of nerdy year 11 student,

very quiet, reserved and
then this program really

opens you up, gives
you amazing amounts of

confidence.

Chris Hatherly is also a
veteran of the program -

And says it's inspiring
to see students just as

passionate as he was
twenty-one years-ago.

They're sitting there in
those chairs that have

been occupied for 60 years
by Nobel prize winners,

and by scientists and
people from overseas and

to have this next
generation of kids who are

going to be the leading
scientists of their

generation in 15 or 20
years time, it's wonderful

to see.

Another two-hundred
high-school students will

take part in the second
session in the middle of

January.

Every two years, the

3-thousand cubs and

volunteer leaders.

After a early start this
morning, these cubs from

Yass and Murrumbateman
were ready to set up their

camp for tonight's first
sleepover of the trip.

You get to play with
all your friends.

And we talk a lot.

And we get to stay
up a bit late.

What's fun about sleeping
over with all your

friends?

Getting to know new
people and having fun.

Doing lots of activities
and sleeping over with my

friends.

It's always fun and I
always like going camping.

Just being in the great
outdoors and having fun

with my friends.

And that's just the
start of the fun.

They'll also be mastering
the flying fox, abseiling

and rock climbing over
the next few days.

other young people to be

doing adventurous
activities that they've

never done before in
a safe environment and

within five days they're
exhausted but in years to

come they'll always look
back to the 6th Cuboree.

An important part of being
a cub is learning how to

tie a scarf.

I've got two volunteers
here ready to show me how

it's done.

big bash appearance to forget for

a duck in his first match of the highli

highlight in the field - earning commentator
plenty of praise from the commentators. After being overlooked
for the Adelaide Strikers

first three matches
of the season,

Jono Dean finally got his
chance last night against

the Hobart Hurricanes.

But it didn't go to plan.

Well there's shouts of

While Dean wasn't able
to trouble the scorers,

he wasn't the only
Strikers batsman to

struggle against
Dan Christian.

The all rounder finishing
with five for fourteen off

his four overs.

As Adelaide was dismissed
for one hundred forty

Out to make amends for his
poor batting performance,

Dean was on fire
in the field early.

It was Jono Dean super

But his efforts couldn't

The Strikers with no

as the Hurricanes ran out

Meanwhile in the
Women's Big Bash,

ACT Meteors off-spinner
Sam Bates was crowned

player of the match after
inspiring the Sydney

Thunder to a narrow three
run win over the Brisbane

Heat.

We set 130 on the board
and we said that was quite

a defendable total if
our bowlers bowled to our

plans and credit to them
I think we all did really

well and bowled to our
plans and executed.

Chasing one hundred and

looked comfortable at
four for ninety six,

before a run out
early in Bates over.

A direct hit from
Stalenberg and she's gone

fielding that is.

The off spinner then
