    Truly, it is the mind of an architect that enables the imaginative embodiment of our built environment. That mind can and will act in response to the inescapable challenge of up-stream life sustaining criteria. Continue the call, the action and most importantly the imagination. Let our profession run this course to fully understand and appreciate the impact at the finish line.

    Awesome!
    I sent the memo to my lil sister in mining.  Unfortunately, she's not been responsive...

    So, my best guess is: if we find the steel industry lagging, it's 'cos my lil sis is enjoying a year-long maternity leave.  Not bad given 7 months is basically all that is needed of parents.

    Back to the womens' tennis.
