at 21:01 4 Aug 2020

251/1 chasing England's 328, with 62 balls left. Stirling on 139, Balbirnie (the Captain) on 94.

TV programme might be worth watching

Just noticed (while looking for the cricket highlights) a programme on BBC2 at 9.15pm on how Sir Alf Ramsey built the winning 1966 England football team.

scoring goals for Wigan in the Championship (including today) is a different player then the one with the same name who was slightly rubbish for us in 2017?

If not, quite a turn-around.

It is becoming increasingly clear that Stonehenge,

Obviously the grasslands of Salisbury Plain are particularly good for preserving evidence of these things, but one wonders whether it was unique in scale, or if there is more to be found around places like Avebury (which is already known to be part of an elaborate complex of sites).

the study used in the WHO report suggesting that 1m separation is nearly as safe as 2m. Lot of papers are being put out very hastily and without proper scrutiny. Then used by those pressuring decisionmakers to relax the lockdown asap.

Interesting change in the official daily statistics releases
at 19:09 25 May 2020

They appear to no longer be able to give the numbers of individuals tested (as opposed to the number of tests carried out), which they used to do. This is being blamed on 'technical difficulties'.

But it's also rather convenient.

And has messed up my spreadsheet.

If this divide between

pro- and anti-playing factions within League One and the wider EFL continues longer term - especially with continued indecision by the authorities - whether we'll end up with a breakaway group founding their own competition. As has happened in other sports (indeed, to some extent did with the foundation of the Premier League in 1992).

Serving in the British Army

ought to confer the right to citizenship, let alone a basic right to residency and services. Free and gratis. It's not huge numbers we're talking about. Might help recruitment, too.

Perhaps also could be extended to those who have worked in the NHS during this crisis.

These are people who have risked their lives for the UK.
