It is a bit like Ireland at Christmas, the opening plan was reasonable enough but a new variant kiboshed it.

Cork 2-17 Westmeath 0-19 53 mins played. Two Cork goals in a few minutes has swung this contest and both goals was errors in the Westmeath defence.

Excellent defence not really a characteristic of this game, and Cork should have had a fourth.

Anyone with kids here 12-18 ? Will you get them vaccinated?

No, thereís no long term data. Also this:

It is easy to quote some issues with the vaccine, but you also have to recognise that while younger people do not usually die, many will suffer more severe symptoms from Covid.

The ones that won't are the ones with too manay managers who just want to try and control their workers... Needs to be trust. It's harder to micro manage too when people are WFH. (Though can be done no doubt)

Hello NI public sector.

Farther in law has both doses and works, let's just say in higher education, and is coming here next Tuesday to see his 9 month old granddaughter for the first time. Has to quarantine on return. Manager said he couldn't work from home (as had been done successfully throughout the pandemic) during his quarantine and he'd have to use annual leave. Spoke to HR about it and they said it absolutely wasn't a problem.
Thatís crazy. If she hadnít known he was going to Barcelona then it wouldnít have been an issue. His honesty is being exploited. Iíd refuse to take leave if I was him.

The point is that working from home may be a concession, in that people in jobs may be required to come to the office from time to time, some more than others. A lot of employers would not want a class of worker who can refuse to come to the office, although they might be at home 95% of the time. This precludes people deliberately putting themselves in a position where they must work from home. Also there are equity considerations if person A can head off abroad on holidays, while person B who does work in the office cannot do this as they would need the leave for the quarantine.

People are being a bit obtuse here. In cinemas or churches you have to wear a mask, something you do not do in hospitality. You could have dining well spaced out, but the restaurant s claim that they cannot make money at this configuration.

There is a case for people in big stadia, there should be no TV games allowed in pubs. They have it arseways.
Are you joking? No games in pubs?

No, I am not joking.

Hello NI public sector.

Farther in law has both doses and works, let's just say in higher education, and is coming here next Tuesday to see his 9 month old granddaughter for the first time. Has to quarantine on return. Manager said he couldn't work from home (as had been done successfully throughout the pandemic) during his quarantine and he'd have to use annual leave.

not just public sector. Jobsworths in manager positions basically make it a problem.
Individual managers shouldn't be able to set policy in any decent sized company. Re. the travel piece we are also telling them that if they choose to travel and get caught out with quarantine on return and are required to be onsite any isolation time is annual leave. I dont see any issue with that.

That's absolutely fine in my book. You can't remotely build someone's house for example. In my example, my father in law can 100% do his job from home. The only reason for a manager to try up prevent someone from doing so under those circumstances is because the manager is a p***k.

I don't know about the NICS, but in the Freestate the government specifically said that any public servant travelling had to take leave, whether they were working from home or not. They didn't want people travelling in general and did not want it to be easy for people in certain roles but not in others.

It is notably that fewer people in the 60-69 group have had the second jab since they were given AZ and a 12 weeks interval whereas younger people 50-59 are getting second jabs.

So nothing has changed for the normal working class prod?

When the normal working class Prod is having his Ulster fry, he is now forced to have Cookstown sausages and Fermanagh bacon instead of the Lincoln Sausage with real Devon apple and  Wiltshire Outdoor Bred Back Bacon Rashers that they were brought up on.
