More retail investors are expected to jump in now shares suddenly look relatively affordable. Elon Musk got nearly $4bn richer on Wednesday morning, probably before he even got out of bed. Why? Because on Tuesday evening Tesla (one-fifth owned by Musk) announced a “stock split” that in pre-market speculation early on Wednesday drove up the already stratospheric valuation of the company by another 7%. Yet a stock-split is merely a housekeeping arrangement. It’s when a company divides the existing shares of its stock into multiple new shares, usually because the share price has reached such high levels that even buying one share looks too pricey for small investors.

But there have also been a couple of mystery cases of Covid popping up in the NSW case numbers - infections with no known source - which points to community transmission, which also has NSW worried. Masks are not yet mandatory, but Bereji.

Atalanta were on the verge of the semi-finals when PSG stunned them with a last-ditch two-goal salvo. 10.05pm. BST. Pretty much everyone on the pitch has their hands on their heads. Either in dumbfounded joy, PSG’s players having sensationally wriggled out of trouble, or in utter despair, Atalanta seemingly having done enough to shock tonight’s favourites and make it to the semis. On his cooler box, Thomas Tuchel sits, smiles and shakes his head in disbelief. Gian Piero Gasperini wears the thin-lipped grimace of a man who’s just realised someone’s made off with his wallet. It’s a thin line between success and failure, and those two late goals could well have saved Tuchel’s job. Which is fair enough, seeing his second-half changes tilted the ti.

So much for the underdogs. On an extraordinary night in Lisbon Atalanta came within a minute of reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League, only to be pegged back by the superstars of Paris Saint-Germain and then eliminated in stoppage time. For so much of this game Neymar had looked like drawing headlines for the chances missed and for the sense of hubris as another year in Paris met a dead end. This was a muted PSG team all round, with very little in the way of creativity or incision in midfield.

Rebuilding bushfire-ravaged areas during a pandemic has been a huge challenge. One group of survivors is embracing the opportunity to roll out sustainable, fire-proof homes. As a bushfire raged through north-east Victoria late last year, leaving destroyed houses and blackened bushland in its wake, Cudgewa man Joshua Collings, his partner Kate and their young son Tully joined a convoy of cars snaking their way down the mountain. Their home was gone. They wanted to get out of there. But back at the evacuation centre in nearby Corryong, police had given bleak warnings about what they would see out the window. The couple landed on an idea to distract Tully, who was then three years old, from the devastation.
