|CANBERRA， Dec. 30 (Xinhua) -- Former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke has called for the nation to "think big" and do away with its state borders， describing them as not progressive and putting a halt on national development.
In comments published in local media this week， Hawke - who led the country from 1983 to 1991 - said the borders serve no purpose but to further break up the power in the nation， and that by abolishing the state borders， Australia could progress as one nation and not eight states and territories.
"What we have today - as I have said before - basically represents the meanderings of British explorers across the Australian continent more than 200 years ago，" Hawke said in comments published in Thursday's newspapers.
"They wandered around and lines were drawn on a map and jurisdiction and governance followed."
"So you have 13 parliaments (including senates) dealing with much the same issues and I believe that the simple fact is the states should be abolished."
Some states and territories are home to fewer than one million people， and Hawke said there was simply no need to have a separate state or territory government for such a small number of people.
He added that while there is some support for his view， many colleagues are against the change， something Hawke said was mystifying.
"I raised that with my own colleagues and， would you believe it， they are not overly keen on it，" he said.
"So many comfortable seats to put bums on in parliaments all over this country， but it seems to me that that is what ought to happen."
The former PM said the boundaries could continue to exist for interstate sport "and that sort of thing."
A knife-wielding attacker stabbed a French police chief to death in front of his home late on Monday and his partner's body was found inside Air Vapormax Flyknit Shoes , officials said, killings Islamic State's Amaq news agency said were carried out by a member of the group.
The attacker repeatedly knifed the 42-year-old commander in the stomach before barricading himself inside the house in a Paris suburb, an Interior Ministry spokesman said.
He was shot dead by members of an elite police unit after negotiations failed.
Police and judicial sources said that the attacker was a 25-year-old man who had been monitored by security and anti-terrorist services after he received a three-year prison sentence in 2013 for helping Islamist militants go to Pakistan.
A judicial source said the anti-terrorism unit of the prosecutor's office had been given responsibility for the investigation because of comments made during lengthy exchanges between the assailant and negotiators. The source gave no further details.
"Source to Amaq agency: Islamic State fighter kills deputy chief of the police station in the city of Les Mureaux and his wife Air Vapormax Shoes ," Amaq said on its news website.
President Francois Hollande held an early morning emergency meeting over the killings, his office said before Amaq posted its statement, underscoring the seriousness with which the Elysee presidential palace is treating the incident.
If it is confirmed Islamic State was behind the murders Air Vapormax Flyknit 2018 , it would be the first militant strike on French soil since the government imposed a state of emergency after multiple attacks on Paris in November that killed 130 people.
Monday's killings took place as France, a founder member of the U.S.-led coalition waging air strikes against Islamic State, was already on high alert for terrorist attacks during the Euro 2016 soccer tournament which began on Friday.
Islamic State's claim one of its "fighters" carried out the evening attack came a day after the Islamist militant group said it was responsible for the shooting that killed 49 people in a massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando Air Vapormax 2018 , Florida.
The attacker struck in the Paris suburb of Magnanville, about 50 km (30 miles) northwest of the French capital and about 20 km from Les Mureaux, where the police commander was stationed.
He stabbed the police commander nine times in the stomach before forcing his way into the house and taking the officer's partner and three-year-old son hostage.
"Negotiations were unsuccessful Air Vapormax Flyknit Mens , a decision was made to launch an assault," Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said.
Commandos from the RAID police unit stormed the house and found the woman's body. The young boy was rescued "in shock but unharmed", a prosecutor said.
Officials have not revealed the identity of the 42-year-old officer.
SYDNEY Air Vapormax Mens , July 9 (Xinhua) -- Australians are smoking and drinking less but are getting fatter and more anxious, according to a new study released on Wednesday.
The study by Roy Morgan Research blames unemployment rates for Australia's high anxiety.
Roy Morgan chief executive Michele Levine told the Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC) there has been a marked reduction in smoking and alcohol consumption.
"It's to do with the fact there's been a very strong anti- smoking campaign and anti-smoking lobby with increased taxes and a focus on plain labels," she said.
"The reduction in alcohol consumption ... I think we've actually seen Air Vapormax Flyknit Womens , again, a fairly strong anti-drink-driving campaign. And there's been enough information to get people to curb their drinking. The only one form of alcohol that's actually increasing is cider."
But three in five Australian adults are overweight, with a body mass index (BMI) over 25.
"And it's interesting because we've actually become a nation of weight watchers Air Vapormax Womens ," Levine said.
"We worry about our weight. We think about our weight. We say that we're monitoring the calories we eat and yet our weight continues to increase.
"We've got to monitor in a study like this fairly consistent levels of good eating and exercise and activity.
