ASX to rise, Crown on notice and 4 other things to start your day

ASX: The local share market is expected to open higher this morning after US shares were boosted overnight.

Heavy is the head: Crown Resorts in Victoria has vowed to change after being put on notice by the industry watchdog and fined $120 million.

Crown copped the fine for allowing, and at times even encouraging, people to gamble for up to 24 hours straight.

The casino is currently under a two-year supervision order to decide whether it should continue to hold a licence following a damning 2021 royal commission.

Best car: If you've been thinking of getting an electric car but not sure which one to go for, then your answer is here.

Australia's biggest car brands have been ranked on their efforts to reduce emissions - but the news is not good for many household names.

While electric vehicle manufacturers Polestar and Tesla topped the Climate Council's Race to Zero Ranking on Tuesday, Australia's top three car brands, Toyota, Ford and Kia, all ranked lower than their sales indicated.

Data breaches: If it feels like there has been an increase in hackers taking all our information, that’s because there has been.

More than 30 per cent of Australians have been exposed to data breaches in the past year as cyber attacks continue to spike across the country.

Flood damage: Central west NSW residents remain without gas while other communities wait for flooding to arrive, as those upstream assess the damage.

Residents in Bathurst, Oberon, Wallerawang and Lithgow have been without gas after flooding is thought to have damaged a pipeline running under the Macquarie River last week.

Disability support: Aussies will get to have their say as federal disability services laws get their first major shakeup since 1986.

The act dictates ways the Australian Government can provide disability services beyond the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
