A Chinese made test kit for a Chinese made virus. Anyone see the irony in this?
I would be a wee bit sceptical as to how accurate it will be also.

Here we go again with the old furphy that the "Greens" have prevented hazard reduction burns.
The "Greens" are not in power. They have little influence in any policy. So how does anyone think they can dictate what happens.
The window of opportunity to perform hazard reduction burns has decreased hugely, due to the change in weather patterns. Where once there was maybe 4-5 months of the year to do burns has now reduced to 1-2 if lucky.To undertake any hazard reduction burns costs money, and lots of it. This money is provided (or not as is the case) by the current Govt.
I do not buy into the argument either way whether the change in climate is influenced by man. But as a firefighter of 35 years experience I know a bit about the operations of the Fire Services.
I'm just a bit sick of hearing from the ignorant politicising of the situation.

This will be interesting. Folau will argue on the basis of religious freedom, while Aus Rugby will argue on the basis of a breach of the Code of Conduct. On face value, and if you read the player code, and the fact that Folau was previously warned, I would be surprised if Folau wins. But in these current times with the increase in fundamentalist views, particularly now in the Aus gov't, who knows what pressure will be applied to the judiciary behind closed doors.

The fact that the CEO of the Wallabies major sponsor is gay would have nothing to do with the sacking... sure. Old saying... don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Wow..people getting worked up and agro about someone inconveniencing one minute of a day, but then take way longer than that reading and then commenting on the non event. And life goes on.

The lake in question has very clear water, white sand, and looks very inviting. Once you go in about 10 metres it suddenly drops off into very deep water. Within one or two steps it goes from knee deep to many metres deep. For a non swimmer it would be easy to get into trouble. Would have to wonder though about the level of supervision on the tour.

Well lets just stop pussyfooting around and call it for what it is...ethnic cleansing. And why are other world leaders not calling it the same. History has a way of repeating itself.

The most worrying thing about this topic is how it polarises everyone. Unhealthy and dangerous. The fact that this is on the increase since Trump came to power might give you a clue. As a well travelled non-American I can assure you that the general feeling worldwide is that Trump is a white nationalist.

So this kid thinks that the rules don't apply to him. His reaction is to abuse the teacher for upholding the rules. If somewhere in his future he continues this attitude he will be unemployable. If nothing changes he will be that kid that abuses your wife, your daughter, or you, in the street and on the train. A lesson to be learnt is that if you keep pushing someone, then eventually you will be dealt with in kind. Lets hope he reflects on this.

Bullying and threats may work on China's citizens, but it won't cut it internationally. Plenty of Chinese that want to live elsewhere, but I don't know of anyone that aspires to live in China.

One only needs to open their eyes and read what the rest of the world is saying about, and analysing, Trumps comments and performance on the world stage. Laughing stock would be rather kind. Some people really do need to take the blinkers off. I genuinely feel sorry for those thinking Americans who are being tarred with the Trump brush.

I was going to make some comment about a "Moral Compass". But then remembered that Trump has no morals at all. I think I will go with..."mental Illness", which seems to apply to Trump more aptly. USA, you will eventually reap what you sow ( which is entirely unfair to all the "thinking and unbrainwashed " Americans.)
