Have you been following this story? The saga isn't over, especially with the on-again, off-again drama with restrictions and lockdowns in Victoria. Ultimately, each of these 'little wins' will only encourage them and others to pursue their case.
"Tell him he's dreaming!" It's interesting to see where prices can go once buyers have re-adjusted their price expectations or re-evaluated their perception of value. When buyers expect and are willing to pay the prices asked by sellers (if not more), which direction does the property market go?
We don't often share news articles from international sport, but this is worth a read for anyone finding things a little tough right now. Of course, you might not be on the world stage (like these ladies), but what's important is that it's your own stage and don't let anyone say otherwise.
Can you rely on reported cases? It all really depends on testing, doesn't it? If people don't get tested, the reported cases will be lower than reality and everyone breathes a sigh of relief. But if there's traces in the sewage, we know it's in the community - just don't know who or exactly where.

... but is he wrong? Do you think national productivity is up because more people are working from home? Is it really considered a work-life balance if you use business hours for personal activities and personal time to work?
Did you see anyone you know? The annual snow gear Special Buys is always a favourite - and not only does it show with the crowds in the stores, but also with the crowds across the snowfields in the weeks to come.

Last year... this marked the reopening of our office after a month of COVID restrictions. While this was a challenging time, the last 12 months have also been the busiest too.
RePosted • @phanglegal With the easing of restrictions, our temporary office closure officially comes to an end. Our office will reopen tomorrow (11/5) with face-to-face client meetings to recommence shortly after (thank you all for your patience). Some things will continue such as working from remote locations (for some team members) and social distancing with other infection-preventing precautions in the office. We appreciate your continued support and understanding during this time. #office#work#coronavirus... See MoreSee Less

Do you think every small business that feels hard done by the various government announced COVID-19 restrictions should be entitled to compensation from the government? What about if they had already received JobKeeper or other government benefits? An interesting test case, but at what cost to the public?
Have you been following this issue? Is it possible to effectively and genuinely mediate while under public scrutiny? Ultimately, if she wants to clear her name in the public eye, then this would also be in her best interest too.
Not local news, but news nonetheless. As it happened when Jeff Bezos and Mackenzie Bezos divorced after 25 years of marriage, the focus will be on the money rather than the breakdown of their relationship. How is it going to affect Bill Gates' net worth? How much will Melinda Gates get from the settlement? What does it mean for their various organisations?
Does the world ask or care what happened to a couple after 27 years of marriage (and the emotional or mental toll) that results in divorce?
Should 'big business' return or be required/pressured into returning JobKeeper payments? Was the scheme really intended for them, especially where these benefits filtered through to be reflected in increased profits and dividends for shareholders? Or was JobKeeper really intended for the small struggling businesses that couldn't afford to maintain their staff during the economic downturn?
As Spock would say “Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”
Travel restrictions and strict quarantine (even though not perfect) are the only things that have saved Australia so far. Applying these measures strictly ensure that we don't experience what other countries are or have experienced. So is it justified? Logic says yes.
Remember when the first few Australians were returning from Wuhan, China and they were sent to the offshore detention centres. That was a safety measure deemed necessary at the time. Subsequently, the onshore and hotel detention centre has largely worked, but there have been occasional outbreak concerns. Still, necessary to avoid local transmissions. Considering there's already been one case of infection, which is one too many, a travel ban on India doesn't seem like such a bad idea.
The Bank of Mum and Dad is nothing new. Over the last 20 years or so, we've seen an increasing number of parents lending or guaranteeing funds for their children - as well as the underlying concerns from parents arising from the divorce, property settlement and estate matters of their children (the borrowers).

These observations are consistent with our own, with Parramatta and surrounding areas being affected quite dramatically. It's potentially going to be some time before this segment of the economy returns to normal.
