QUOTE

In 2021 the Company remains focused on our customer's needs and creating an inclusive product development roadmap to shape our long-term product direction.

I just hope they have more than one customer!!

Cricket Australia had just eased India’s concerns over quarantine arrangements in Brisbane before the BCCI changed tact.


Not much tact involved in this change of tack.

Can't say I blame them much. Hasn't been a whole lot of fun, but citing the upcoming England tour is a bit of a red herring.

Is it work experience guy, or a New Zealander, doing this story?

"There's some trees right at the top edge of the landslip that will need to be filled, there's also a significant tree halfway down that's fallen and is laying horizontal against another tree and both of those will need to be taken out and then we need to work out how to remove the rubble."

Mr Milburn said the rubble itself will require significant risk assessments before it us moved.
filled! felled?
before it us moved! before it is moved?

Syllogism has been mentioned in posts, so I thought I’d put a definition here.

QUOTE
syllogism
/ˈsɪlədʒɪz(ə)m/

noun: syllogism; plural noun: syllogisms
an instance of a form of reasoning in which a conclusion is drawn from two given or assumed propositions (premises); a common or middle term is present in the two premises but not in the conclusion, which may be invalid (e.g. all dogs are animals; all animals have four legs; therefore all dogs have four legs ).


Cheers
