Bucs very dangerous for Packers, loads of weapons and an aggressive D.

Brady will have no bother playing in the cold weather in Green Bay though it has to be a factor. Rodgers seems in total control though so you would slightly favour the Packers

Pfizer has also said the vaccine is useless if second jab is not administered within 21 days but UK is going to ignore that advice. So letís say you admininister 1 million vaccines and jab 2 to that million comes 2 months later. Is that 1 million vaccinated or zero? Those percentages all seem to be based on jab 1.
Where did they say that?
They have said a single dose is 51% effective. They have also said they do not have data on different spacing as the trial wasonly performed with 3 week intervals.
3 weeks is a standard gap as the likelihood of patients returning after a longer duration drops off.

I've have seen this statement from Pfizer and BioNTech -

In a joint statement Pfizer and BioNTech said, ďThe safety and efficacy of the vaccine has not been evaluated on different dosing schedules as the majority of trial participants received the second dose within the window specified in the study design . . . There is no data to demonstrate that protection after the first dose is sustained after 21 days.Ē

Not quite what you have said then?

DENI have now indicated that a child working from home, must produce work that they send back to their teacher (daily or weekly- not clear on that part )or they are marked absent for that specific day(s)!

We upload two pieces of work a day (P4) for my wee fella each day onto MS Teams, we we told the other day any children not engaging with the home learning would be marked absent.

Harden traded to Brooklyn Nets, Lakers v Nets finals then I suppose

Will Klopp send out the kids at OT?

Would say so, he has absolutely no time for the FA Cup

Weíre getting our p4 kids stuff all on line now. No written packs. Is that the case with most? Both of us working from home so very hard to monitor the online work in comparison to written, were you can go back through what theyíve done when you get a few minutes.

My young fella is in P4 and we have to collect written packs on Monday, he has been doing online stuff today and tomorrow on MS Teams and Seesaw, itís going to be a domination of online and written packs.

My daughter is at St Dominics and she follows her timetable with teachers live streaming the classes to them, probably the best option but not too common from what I have heard.

Proper track and trace would have been the way out but no real effort seems to have been made.

And for those that are told to isolate to actually isolate

Big numbers
Nobody even bothering to even hide the house parties anymore
Back in April none of this was going on
Everyone has given up on the restrictions
Only way out now is the vaccine

Thatís been obvious for a while, people think restrictions apply to everyone else but them

The Jets are playing like a playoff team at the end of the season. They beat the rams last week and are well ahead of the Browns this week.

The NFL's approach to Covid has been shambolic. How they can find a way to rearrange the Ravens game 3 times, but then force the Browns to play is farcical. You can see why there is rightly a bit of uproar amongst the Browns fans.

They made Denver play with no QBs a few weeks ago, they were always playing this one

Tight one between Antrim 89 and myself this week. 2nd and 3rd highest weekly scores in B championship. Iím 9.6pts ahead but he has Singletary predicted to get 10.15 tonite. Be harsh on whoever loses out

It will be very unfair if I lose out  ;) Still reeling from losing Saquon Barkley in week 2 ffs

A further 902 cases up north.

I read on Twitter yesterday that there were 8 ICU beds unoccupied in the north. That's pretty scary to be honest.

99 ICU bed capacity, 19 Covid related in ICU & 18 unoccupied ICU beds

Have no time for Nolan, but what is the problem with wearing a mask into the shop.  If it contributes to a XX% reduction in the spread of infection; if social distancing contributes XX% reduction; handwashing and basic hygiene, x%; etc.  All these small things come together to reduce the risk. 

The disease didn't spread during lockdown because people generally adhered to the guidance.  It's spreading now and you can clearly see an increased complacency and some seriously selfish attitudes.  The same people will know all about it in 6 weeks if intensive care facilities cannot cope.

Worth noting that there were no masks worn during lockdown.
No itís not worth noting.

Why would it be worth noting that people did not wear masks when they were in lock down?

Because he linked mask wearing to the virus not spreading during lockdown.

I woudo say it was spreading but as next to nobody was being tested they didnít know
