File photo of mining magnate Gina RinehartMining magnate Gina Rinehart said Tuesday that high costs were hurting resources investment in Australia, as a study found that only the country's agriculture sector was strongly competitive compared with the United States. Rinehart, Australia's richest person, said the resources-rich nation needed to "lower its costs and compete for investment" if it wanted to stop miners from moving to other countries. "One of the things Australia has to learn and appreciate is that for us (miners) to export, people aren't going to buy products because they like Australians -- forget it," Rinehart told The Australian newspaper. "And this is a really big challenge for Australia because we've got very high costs and we've really got to work hard on that if we want to sustain our future, and a good future."

Doves fly away over a memorial paddle-out for Joe Larson, the original owner of Hinano, as the US Coast Guard holds training exercises at Venice Beach in Los Angeles Monday, July 28, 2014. Los Angeles' popular Venice Beach teemed with people enjoying a weekend outing on the boardwalk and sand when lifeguards and other witnesses say lightning from a rare summer thunderstorm hit without warning, injuring or rattling more than a dozen people and leaving a 21-year-old man dead. The witnesses said the strike hit with a tremendous boom about 2:30 p.m. Sunday, rattling buildings and showering a lifeguard headquarters with sparks. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)LOS ANGELES (AP) — A thunderstorm formed so rapidly over a Southern California beach that experts said Monday it was impossible for anyone to predict a lightning strike would turn a day of carefree fun into one of terror.
