Australia said sorry today

We finally said sorry today. I agree that we removed a "stain from the soul of Australia".
An apology is a liberating event. Forgiveness is the healer.
Never underestimate the power of words.

COFFEE: Caffeine linked to miscarriage

Summary: Several studies have shown that consumption of caffeine (equivalent to 1 cup of coffee) is associated with a twofold increase in miscarriage.

Having been there for more than half of my professional career, I have learnt, grown and gained so much, and become close friends with many of the team.
