'''Rhipogonaceae''' (sometimes '''Ripogonaceae''') is the botanical name of a family of flowering plants. The family is confined to eastern Australia, New Zealand, and New Guinea. Rhipogonaceae is composed entirely of woody vines in the genus '''''Rhipogonum''''' (sometimes '''''Ripogonum'''''). Until recently this family was included in Smilacaceae, and its separation has been a matter of some debate. However, both the APG system and APG II system do recognize such a family and place it in the order ''Liliales'', and the clade '''monocots'''. It differs from the closely related Smilacaceae only in that Rhipogonaceae is a twining vine that lacks tendrils, its seeds contain starch, the flowers are hermaphroditic, and the five sided anthers are longer than the filaments. The '''Queensland rugby league team''' have represented the Australian state of Queensland in rugby league football since the sport's beginnings there in 1908. Also known as the "'''Maroons'''" in reference to the colour of their jersey, the team is administered by the Queensland Rugby League and since 1982 has played almost exclusively in Australia's annual three-match State of Origin (Rugby League State of Origin) series against neighbouring state and arch-rivals New South Wales (New South Wales rugby league team). Both teams are purely representative, with players in modern times primarily chosen from clubs in the National Rugby League. There has been one player chosen from Europe's Super League – Allan Langer for Game III 2001. The Maroons are the current State of Origin champions, having won six Origin series in succession including a 3–0 whitewash in 2010. The Maroons have continued their recent success with a 16–12 win over New South Wales (New South Wales Rugby League team) in Game I of the 2011 series (2011 State of Origin series), they failed to win Game II going down to New South Wales 18–8, but won Game III 34–24 to win the 2011 State Of Origin Series 2–1 in front of an equal record home crowd and further expanding their record for the most Origin wins in a row to six.

lyrical ballads. In the later 19th century it took on the meaning of a slow form of popular love song and the term is now often used as synonymous with any love song, particularly the pop or rock ''power ballad''. Basque is also spoken by immigrants in the major cities of Spain and France, in Australia, in many parts of Latin America, and in the United States, especially in Nevada, Idaho and California. TRASK, Robert Lawrence (Larry Trask) (1997), ''The history of Basque'', Routledge, p. 1. In England, Scotland and Northern Ireland it is traditional for the Premier League, Scottish Premier League and Irish Premier League respectively, as well as the lower divisions and rugby (Rugby football) leagues, to hold a full programme of football (association football) and Rugby League matches on Boxing Day. Traditionally, matches on Boxing Day are played against local rivals (local derby). This was originally to avoid teams and their fans having to travel a long distance to an away game on the day after Christmas Day. It also makes the day an important one in the sporting calendar. In Australia and South Africa, much anticipated test matches are played on Boxing Day. Australia The ''Bankruptcy Act 1966 (Commonwealth)'' is the legislation that governs bankruptcy in Australia. Only individuals can become bankrupt; insolvent companies go into liquidation or administration (see administration (insolvency)). There are three "parts" of the act under which the vast majority of "acts of bankruptcy" fall. Part IV (Full Bankruptcy), Part IX Debt Agreements and Part X Personal Insolvency Agreements. Agreements refer specifically to arrangements between creditors and debtors, whereas Part IV relates to full bankruptcy and is generally synonymous with "bankruptcy". There are several groups of dark-skinned people who live in various parts of Asia, Australia and Oceania who sometimes are referred to as black people. They include the Indigenous Australians, the Melanesians (now divided into Austronesian-speaking populations and Papuans, and including the great genetic diversity of New Guinea), the Semang people of the Malay peninsula, and indigenous first nation Fijians. They are as genetically, anthropologically and culturally related to Africans only as much as all other non-Africans are related to Africans, and because of this it has been deemed controversial to label them black people in the sense of some relation to the native African peoples and the African diaspora that is not similarly present in other Asian, Oceanic or European populations. Australia In Australia, building societies evolved along British lines. Because of strict regulations on banks, building societies flourished until the deregulation of the Australian financial industry in the 1980s. Eventually many of the smaller building societies disappeared, while some of the largest (such as St. George (St. George Bank)) officially attained the status of banks.

The concept of the borough has been used repeatedly (and often differently) throughout the English-speaking world. Often, a borough is a single town with its own local government. However, in some cities it is a subdivision of the city (for example, London, New York City, Montreal, and Tokyo). In such cases, the borough will normally have either limited powers delegated to it by the city's local government, or no powers at all. At certain times, London has had no overall city government and boroughs were the main unit of local government for Londoners; in Tokyo, they are known as wards or cities, and have city status, but these still form parts of a larger municipal government which has merged with that of the prefecture. In other places, such as Alaska, ''borough'' designates a whole region; Alaska's largest borough, the North Slope Borough (North Slope Borough, Alaska), is comparable in area to the entire United Kingdom. In Australia, ''borough'' can designate a town and its surrounding area, such as the Borough of Queenscliffe. Australia In Australia, the term "borough" is an occasionally used term for a local government area. Currently there is only one borough in Australia, the Borough of Queenscliffe in Victoria (Victoria (Australia)), although there have been more in the past.

Walsh, Michael (1991) "Overview of indigenous languages of Australia" in Suzane Romaine (ed.) ''Language in Australia'', Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, ISBN 0-521-33983-9. After the European discovery of the continent by Dutch (Dutch Republic) explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain) in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the continent was explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies were established.
On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated (Federation of Australia), forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Since Federation, Australia has maintained a stable liberal democratic (liberal democracy) political system that functions as a federal (Federalism) parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy comprising six states and several territories (States and territories of Australia). The population of 23.6 million is highly urbanised (Urbanization) and heavily concentrated in the eastern states (Eastern states of Australia) and on the coast.
