1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    All our final year student nurses, paramedics, mid-wives look like they are being made available. I understand there could be issues with registration, and the professional body.........

    and now i hear all the academic staff in these discipline areas who have retained registrations but may no longer practice

    all staff who are military reservists here - put on standby

    That's how exponentials work. A lot of assumptions in there, but the arithmetic is sound.

    it has to do with the fit of masks. here is the american CDC guide:


    good news for biker gangs is that the "horseshoe" is acceptable.

    Good news too if you're Errol Flynn, Ned Flanders or Hitler.

    My company moved to home working at the start of this week so at the moment the main risk is of my wife (who's a teacher) catching and spreading it as she's still working as the school is still open (although will be closing after today).

    Most of outside excursions will be to walk the dog.

    Richard Herring tried to revive it.

    Although I think the last to do so without PoMo irony was Robert Mugabe.

    Of course, if you clean-shaven types decide to wear perfectly sealing masks (as opposed to respirators) you won’t have to wait for CV19 to knock you over.

    Just driven past my local micro pub on my way back from hospital, no social distancing going on there, crammed to the rafters!

    People do not seem to have taken the social distancing seriously at all , cramming into shops and pubs with little care . You see people wiping down a trolly or wearing gloves and then standing in a queue for ages to get in a supermarket . I have to go to the shop but make a big effort to avoid peak times
