This collection of 14 short articles represents adventurous ideas and semi heretical thoughts that emerged when, in 2013, I was given the opportunity to edit a fun section of the Journal of Causal Inference called Casual, and Curious.

She was seized in 2018 after attending a conference at the holy city of Qom in central Iran and strongly denied the charges. She returned to Australia last November as part of a prisoner swap agreement that saw the release of three Iranians accused of plotting to kill Israeli officials in Bangkok.
In my opinion, the city should consider adding an approved Temporary Permissable Encampment in the near east/central city given there are some people who, for a variety of reasons, don’t wish to seek indoor shelter and want to be downtown.
