One cow in one pasture and one cow in another pasture = 2 head of cattle.

Notley has said her NDP government will ensure that every firefighter from South Africa is paid according to Alberta law, which stipulates a minimum wage of $11.20 per hour.


11.20 per hour, let it burn.

Crossover. Temperature higher than humidity. I remember that was significant for something
I have learned that to be with those I like is enough.

Crossover is "the point at which the numerical value of the ambient relative humidity is less than, or equal to, the numerical value of the ambient air temperature". This is an indication of extreme burning conditions. Having said that it has some limitations depending on other conditions, slope, hazard, wind, fuel intensity, and hazard. It is a definite warning signal for fire attack crews, extreme precautions must be taken for deployed crews and equipment.
