Splitting Families and Complete Separability We answer a question from Raghavan and SteprÄns
by showing that $\mathfrak{s} = {\mathfrak{s}}_{\omega, \omega}$. Then we use this to construct a completely separable maximal almost disjoint family under $\mathfrak{s} \leq \mathfrak{a}$, partially answering a question of Shelah.

A Note on Conjectures of F. Galvin and R. Rado In 1968, Galvin conjectured that an uncountable poset $P$ is the
union of countably many chains if and only if this is true for every
subposet $Q \subseteq P$ with size $\aleph_1$. In 1981, Rado
formulated a similar conjecture that an uncountable interval graph $G$ is countably
chromatic if and only if this is true for every induced subgraph $H
\subseteq G$ with size $\aleph_1$. TodorÄeviÄ has shown
that Rado's Conjecture is consistent relative to the existence of a
supercompact cardinal, while the consistency of Galvin's Conjecture
remains open. In this paper, we survey and collect a variety of
results related to these two conjectures. We also show that the
extension of Rado's conjecture to the class of all chordal graphs is
relatively consistent with the existence of a supercompact cardinal.

Sequential Order Under PFA It is shown that it follows from PFA
that there is no
compact scattered space of height greater than $\omega$
in which the sequential order and the scattering heights coincide.

A Comment on ``$\mathfrak{p} < \mathfrak{t}$'' Dealing with the cardinal invariants ${\mathfrak p}$ and
${\mathfrak t}$ of the continuum, we prove that
${\mathfrak m}={\mathfrak p} = \aleph_2\ \Rightarrow\ {\mathfrak t} =\aleph_2$.
In other words, if ${\bf MA}_{\aleph_1}$ (or a weak version of
this) holds, then (of course $\aleph_2\le {\mathfrak p}\le
{\mathfrak t}$ and) ${\mathfrak p}=\aleph_2\ \Rightarrow\
{\mathfrak p}={\mathfrak t}$. The proof is based on a criterion
for ${\mathfrak p}<{\mathfrak t}$.

Guessing with Mutually Stationary Sets We use the mutually stationary sets of Foreman and Magidor
as a tool to establish the validity of the two-cardinal version
of the diamond principle in some special cases.

Dow's Principle and $Q$-Sets A $Q$-set is a set of reals every subset of which is a relative
$G_\delta$. We investigate the combinatorics of $Q$-sets and
discuss a question of Miller and Zhou on the size $\qq$ of the smallest
set of reals which is not a $Q$-set. We show in particular that various
natural lower bounds for $\qq$ are consistently strictly smaller than
$\qq$.
