Going "On Country" in Australia - Law in Sydney

Meghan Tankersley | February.16.2016

In my line of work in Australia the big deal is going "on country". We are a law firm that works with Aboriginal groups to gain native title over their land. Native title doesn't give the group ownership rights, but it does give them the right to negotiate with mining companies and the State. The groups can negotiate issues of cultural heritage and royalties from mining operations, to name a few.

The Life of a Culinary Intern in Florence

Meghan Tankersley | February.25.2014
Sarah is a culinary intern currently living and working in Florence, Italy. Below is a post titled "Workin' Hard, Drinking Coffee" from her Tumblr page about her first day at her internship. Sarah and the other Global Experience interns have been taking Italian language courses for the first four weeks of the program and will interning for the next six weeks. For more stories (and recipes!) from Sarah check out her blog

"I’m slated to work dinner shifts for the next six days (!!!!!!), meaning that I theoretically have a bunch of time to do things in the morning, but this is only assuming I don’t sleep late. Which unfortunately I can’t seem to train my body not to do when I don’t have an important appointment to keep.

I’ve been meaning to check out the coffee shop scene here, because although it is not as big of a thing to frequent them and hang out there as it is in the States, Florence has a number of bookshop/library/cafe/weplaymusicatnight kinds of spots. Naturally I’m intrigued, as I like books, music, and coffee. So before embarking on my kitchen journey, I went to visit Le Cita’, a sweet little shop right over the bridge. I didn’t bother to check upstairs, where I later discovered there are couches and other more comfortable seating, but I spent a few really lovely hours reading and sipping coffee and being surrounded by a public whose interests were the same.
