For anyone who has visited a hip, chalk-boarded coffee shop in the nation’s capital in recent years, the high number of Aussies in Berlin may not come as a surprise. But the Australian presence in Germany is not limited to the bearded baristas of Berlin. Every one of Germany’s 16 states has at least a few Aussie residents, with seemingly plenty of Australians content to swap the sun, surf and sea for the land of sauerkraut and sausage. Getting an insight into how many Australians live in various European countries has been difficult, primarily due to the ad hoc registration system that exists - or doesn't exist - in different countries.

Picture: PAGEPIX LTD Pagepix Ltd 07976 935738 Ipswich Town owner Marcus Evans has given a wide-ranging interview to the club’s website, covering a lot of ground including the sacking of Paul Hurst, why the club is struggling and how he plans to put things right.

Mark Phelan Detroit Free Press Published 7:00 AM EST Nov 17, 2018 I just cast my votes for the auto industry’s top awards: North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year. I’ll tell you which vehicles I voted for, and why, in a minute, but first, here’s how the awards work: After evaluating vehicles all year, ballots from the 50-plus jurors were due Nov. 15 to Deloitte accountants. To be eligible, a vehicle must be entirely new or very significantly changed. A new drivetrain or body style for an existing vehicle isn’t enough. It’s one of the highest standards among all best-vehicle awards. Jurors consider a number of factors, including value, innovation, design, safety and performance. Each juror had 25 points to divide among the semifinalists. No vehicle can get more than 10 points. Jurors must vote for at least three vehicles. You can divide your points among as many as you like. The top three in each category will be announced Nov. 28 … [Read more...] about Here’s how I voted for NACTOY awards — and why
