2. Should Raelene Castle have to turn in her New Zealand passport for becoming the CEO of Rugby Australia? We're kidding. Congratulations to Castle, who has become the first female CEO of the organisation.

3. Will the most recent terror attack in NYC have an impact on subway security? Explosive device partially detonates in subway pedestrian walkway, injuring four.
