    "Pfizer and BioNTech's Phase 3 study for the Covid-19 vaccine was designed to evaluate the vaccine's safety and efficacy following a 2-dose schedule, separated by 21 days," Pfizer said in a statement on Thursday. "There are no data to demonstrate that protection after the first dose is sustained after 21 days."

    Wow that was quick.

    Although Pfizer are always going to be extremely guarded about that decision even if they did have some data.

    That's a problem for the future, why worry about it more than 24 hours before?
    Maybe they should just make an algorithm that predicts all the grades... oh wait
    To be honest I'd like to see them just go with CAGs again without the algorithmic moderation. Students who aren't happy with where they currently are could do coursework which would then form the basis of a grade. If that was backed up with a lockdown of UCAS (so that students who exceed their predictions can't go shopping for a course at an elite university like they did last year) i think it might work.

    He's a tory, they are all shit. We need to stop the pretense that the conservative party is full of useless idiots and instead is a useless and idiotic party.

    The main road near my flat is about as busy as it's been recently and substantially busier than it was during the first lock down.

    I can only conclude that there are a lot of people needing to test their eyesight today.

    I wonder how many will be allowed to work from home during this lockdown. I've been speaking to recruiters over the past month for jobs in London which are advertised as remote and definitely don't need to be office based. When asked they all tell me they expect people to be in the office at least 3 days a week even with the current restrictions and most of them were in the office during the last lockdown. These are all bullshit marketing roles mostly at ad agencies, not critical jobs at all.

    He's giving people who want to stretch the rules right out of existence every bit of ammunition they could possibly get their hands on. "Oh, I'm not socializing with this person. We happened to be taking our daily exercise, of course socially distanced, and now we just had to sit down to rest our muscles. We will be on our way shortly. Not socializing. Exercising." Repeat 5 times in a day, because who is going to be able to check that? Yes, I know people like this. And yes, one of them did actually contract the virus and exactly as you'd expect, had hardly any symptoms. This person went and visited many others while aware they might be sick (so should have quarantined) and may have continued to do so after a positive test result. This same person stretched the Dutch Christmas rule of 3 visitors max - by having several rounds of 3 visitors.

    I do see that it's not easy to answer this type of question without actually doing that. On the other hand, how hard is it to say something like 'It's, now perhaps more than ever, important to exercise. So of course you can go outside to exercise once a day. You shouldn't meet up with someone to do this. Every contact is a risk of transmission, you can transmit this virus without experiencing any symptoms. The situation is dire, so obviously for now we exercise alone. If you meet others outside, be sure to keep your distance and refrain from socializing."

    Yes this - just stick to the fucking message for christ sakes. Stuff like this just gives ammunition to idiots, and papers to write idiotic headlines to get into the heads of other idiots. It's souless, but just repeat the key bits and don't get dragged into the nitty gritty THE DAY AFTER the country's gone back into lockdown.

    In lighter news, the BBC (that evil left or right wing bastion, depending on your political persuasion) is going to air lots of free education. Waiting for the daily mails hot take on this, presumably something along the lines of indoctrination or *shuffles papers* 'bloody beeb educating our children'

    It's what you get if you fly by the symbolism of it all versus what is actually a good idea.

    I do love how the victims of their own brexit rhetoric are the hardest to sympathise with.

    In news that will surprise nobody, the new BBC Chairman is a Tory donor and mate of Johnson and Sunak's.

    You are right, for a moment I forgot that people at large are morons. I get what he is saying and I'm doing that (even better, I'm not exercising what so ever. KEYBOARD POWER STRONK!) but I only have to look around here to get why the message is...not the best.
