The concept of role-modelling in professional sport can be fraught.

If we agree that our children will be inspired and informed by the noble actions of their greatest sporting heroes, should we accept they will also be disillusioned and even damaged by the misdeeds of the very worst?

And where is the line between those role models we contend teach the virtues of sportsmanship and the mere ambassadors who sell the sometimes-mixed messages and potentially harmful products of their corporate paymasters to the youngest and most gullible fans?

You also have fewer role models and less of a good basis to start things with. We found that — in our sample, at

No wonder some believe "role modelling" is an abrogation of a responsibility that should land solely with parents and why some star athletes eschew the notion they should be considered guiding lights.

And then you take a look at the back pages of the major metropolitan newspapers or the front pages of their web sites in the past few weeks and you can't help believing in the power of female sporting role modelling at least.

Outside the mostly individual achievements of tennis stars or Olympic athletes, there has never been a time when so many high profile female sports have made sports editors at least think twice before defaulting to the regular male back page stories plucked from pre-season AFL and NFL training sessions.

Emily van Egmond screaming with delight after her super strike ripped into the top corner of the net and earned the Matildas a draw with China in their Olympic qualifier; Jess Jonassen taking five-for to get Australia home in the tri-series decider against India; the Eagles and Dockers drawing 35,185 for the first AFLW Perth derby; South Korean superstar Inbee Park leaving her competitors in awe as she won the Australian Women's Open golf.

Even the heated debate about the sacking of Diamonds coach Lisa Alexander demonstrated the greater public interest in a decision that once might have been just a few paragraphs in the corner of a sports section dominated by male pursuits.

  Samsung isn't updating one of its best phones from last year, and it proves how different its strategy is from Apple's Samsung didn't launch a successor to last year's less expensive Galaxy S10e when it unveiled its Galaxy S20 lineup, and it also increased the prices of its flagship smartphones. That's a departure from Apple's approach, in which it positioned the cheaper iPhone 11 as its primary new model, while the pricier Pro was framed as an alternative for photography enthusiasts and power users. Samsung does offer cheaper smartphones, like its Galaxy A series and last year's Galaxy S10. But by keeping its flagship smartphone at a premium price, Samsung is sending a much different message than Apple.

However, female role models the world over are so varied and unique that decrying one woman for not being a role model in fact ensures she becomes one If the story of your life has been filled with more sad moments than happy ones, it ’ s time to change that.

Australian sport has never lacked potential female role models. From Betty Cuthbert to Lauren Jackson; from Heather McKay to Liz Ellis a relatively small sporting nation has produced a vast array of accomplished athletes across a wide variety of sports.

But the stages upon which female athletes perform at home have become more grand, the spotlight under which they play has intensified and, in these last few weeks, the media exposure has, for once, provided an accurate representation of the interest they are creating.

On Friday the Women's T20 World Cup will provide potentially the highest-profile forum upon which any women's sports team will have performed outside the Olympics.

The tournament is perfectly timed, coming near the end of a season when some have expressed dissatisfaction with the one-sided men's Test series against Pakistan and New Zealand and the still-elongated BBL.

  RISE OF THE CIO: How the digital revolution is changing the role and making it a critical part of the C-suite Chief information officers are no longer just leading teams in charge of back-office tasks like network security. Increasingly, they are spearheading tech overhauls impacting the whole company, from the IT department to human resources. The added responsibilities means CIOs need to be much more visible within organisations and employ new leadership tactics to get buy in from rank-and-file employees. Business Insider is giving readers first-hand insight from CIOs of some of the largest US companies on how they are managing the shifting role. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Ideally, it culminates with the "two Perrys for the price of one" offering at the MCG final where, according to the script, more than 90,000 will #FillTheG to watch Ellyse Perry swing and Katy Perry sing.

Although this pledge had not taken into account the somewhat lukewarm lead-up form of the Australians, and particularly the sketchy performances of Perry, opener Alyssa Healy and Meg Lanning with the bat.

It is an indication of the Australians' depth that they still prevailed against India and England in the tri-series without the usual hefty contributions from that trio and Australia's progression through the pool stages seems guaranteed.

Although the hardly indomitable performances in that series will only compound the pressure on a team of which a finals appearance is not merely expected, but virtually demanded by the pre-tournament promotion.

But if Australia's dominance is expected, there is, against the grain of the men's cricket, a place for the so-called "minnows" in the Women's T20 World Cup.

There is a time when you might have thought the only Malaysian at a major cricket tournament would be the mee goreng on the lunch buffet.

Yet the Malaysian women's team not only provide some evidence cricket is continuing to push into new frontiers even as the riches are shared by the game's "haves", they are given some chance of causing upsets in a format that lends itself to unpredictability.

Oh Yeah, Betelgeuse Is Definitely Looking Weirder

  Oh Yeah, Betelgeuse Is Definitely Looking Weirder At this point, we’re all crossing our fingers that the dying star Betelgeuse will hurry up and explode already, because who doesn’t love a good show? The red giant star (visible in the constellation Orion) has been growing dimmer since late last year, leading many to speculate it could soon go supernova. Scientists operating the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope have released new images of the supergiant star—and yep, it looks weird. Not only is Betelgeuse dimming, it seems to be changing shape.

If the impact of professional sport is usually measured by trophies in cabinets and the number of beers sunk at the post-game celebrations, the impact of the surge in high-profile women's sport is best measured at the grass roots.

There is now quite literally not enough playing fields and locker rooms to contain the number of young girls turning up to play cricket, Australian Rules and touch rugby, while the already impressive number of girls playing football, netball and basketball remain strong.

A large part of the anger about the misappropriation of government funding in the "sports rorts" affair was created by the high demand for unique female change facilities — and, in this case, the failure to provide these for clubs struggling to cope with overwhelming demand.

In the past few weeks the cause of this surge in female participation has been writ large — female athletes from various Australian sports doing wonders in high profile competitions across the country.

Even if you don't believe your children should mimic their actions it is indisputable these vastly talented women are the reason so many kids are getting off the sofa and turning up at local sports club in record numbers.
