This easily can happen in the workplace, whether with co-workers or, if you deal

“The central question we face today is: Who decides?”  So began the majority opinion in the Supreme Court’s recent decision to block implementation of OSHA’s covid regulation.
Although the dissent vigorously disagrees with the majority’s decision, it agrees about what is the central issue in the case:  “Underlying everything else in this dispute is a single, simple question:  Who decides how much protection, and of what kind, American workers need from COVID–19?”

(1) The ammo supplier supplied the set with a mix of live and dummy rounds, and (2) the scene proceeded without her even being on the set (“had Hannah been called back in”). Also in badly-worded article, it seems to say that the ammo supplier Kenney said that “all rounds are rattle tested before being sent to film sets.” Rattle tested?
