DID YOU KNOW?
November 8th is International Day of Radiology. It celebrates the radiography and radiology industry and its workers and promotes innovation in modern medical imaging.
Why that date? Well, on that day in 1895, the German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered the existence of X-rays, electromagnetic waves which can pass through materials, which he later used to take the first X-ray image (of his wife’s hand). His work changed the medical world forever and earned him a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901.

Referred to either as 'superannuation' or just 'super'. During your working life, your employer/s must pay an amount of money into a special account every time you are paid your salary. For example, in 2023, if you make $70,000 per year, Australian employers must pay at least $7,350 per year into your super, on top of your salary. This money is for you to live on when you reach pension age and retire.
