We have made a significant investment in Queensland, and we will be here for the long haul employing local people, and doing business in Australia. We will continue to stand up and deliver for the good of our community, no matter how courageous it requires us to be, and Bravus, our new name, reflects this intent.
That’s the Adani Group announcing the rebranding of its operations in Australia. Sadly, the company seems to have got its Latin wrong. The latin word for courage is ‘fortis’. But ‘bravus’ OTOH “tends to be used of someone who is villainous. A crook, or a bandit, or a cut-throat.” Oh, maybe they didn’t get it wrong then.
Light at the end of long election tunnel
The TLDR: Joe Biden is in good shape at the end of Thursday. He is ahead in most of the key remaining states. Two of Donald Trump’s lawsuits have fizzled out—but that hasn’t stopped him from making a grand speech claiming, "This is a case where they're trying to steal an election, they're trying to rig an election, and we can't let that happen." But why in the world is this election so close? We explain.

First, the numbers
The electoral college votes are unchanged (Biden, 264; Trump, 214) as no state declared a winner yesterday. But more votes have been counted, and Biden appears to be well-placed to win at least one—which is all he needs to do in order to get to the winning 270 total.
