LiveNews should shoot their copywriter.

Indeed. Newsreaders and copywriters do this all the time, sadly… I mean, don’t they re-read their work???

I think they should all shoot themselves, one time each for every stupid error they make. I guarantee that they’d learn quickly if that was the punishment!

The ANU will also soon inaugurate the ANU Climate Change Institute, which will replace the ANU Institute of Environment as the university’s cross-campus, integrative environmental program, but with a climate focus.

will Peter Garrett open that one too?

I think ANU sometimes has specialised centres within broader faculties. Maybe it was only “officially” opened recently.

it isn’t the only legal facility, it is a division of the faculty of law, and teaches law students in regards to legal environmental issues.
