Comment on Knock-out concussion causes irreversible brain damage by R Henry.

It is not the sport that is at fault but the attitude of the coaches and the expectations of the public.
Boxing, like any sport, can be perverted from a thing of speed and grace to plain brutal punishment.
I do not follow boxing and I gave up watching football years back because of the acceptance of personal violence on the field.
This attitude of smashing heads needs to change but not at the cost of removing sports.
Do not confuse boxing with prize fighting and some of the later free for all cage fighting.

No ‘mitigation’ of major dust hazard for road users
I remember in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, working on the new subdivisions. We had to adhere to dust suppression practice and complaints from the public would halt work until public works were satisfied.
When Kilgariff was at the kerb and guttering stage with a few foundations we had a fair drop of rain and driving past on the highway I observed the kerbs were not visible under the water and I thought how quaint to keep the new suburb in keeping with some other parts of Alice Springs with poor drainage.
