I've had enough.
It's not about today, it's not even about this season. It's about years that feel like decades of drab, hopeless football and illogical, incompetent management on and off the field.
I don't hate the club, I don't hate the players, I don't even hate the owner or manager; I just hate the way I feel about the club, and I've had enough.

I just saw a clip of this where host Tom Hanks was reflecting...
“In the last few weeks, and the last few years, we've witnessed deep divisions and a troubling rancour in our land."
... and I thought to myself, 'isn't it a shame that they didn't get Jonathan Woss instead of Hanks.'

Both Dems ahead in the polls apparently. Be good if they win, will give Uncle Joe a decent chance to enact some good stuff in his first two years. Also may just be enough to keep the orange pumpkin-headed one's thoughts away from Iran! Gotta keep him distracted, why not give him the spacehopper back for a couple of weeks?

For those who've been looking at the localised map at https://localcovid.info/map.html, it looks to me that the 'actual' values for the last week or so and the forecast now are significantly lower than when I looked at them around Christmas time. If so that's a bit of encouragement. Or am I 'mis-remembering'?

I couldn't see an explanation for what their Rolling Rate and Total Cases figures represented exactly here https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/interactive-map.
I'm guessing the TC is the mean value for new cases each day in that 7 day period. So 6 represents 42 +/- ~3.5 new cases for the week.
The RR for 'this' week is simply derived from RR(last) * TC(this) / TC(last), which seems a bit basic to say the least.
My question for one of you smart cookies out there is:
Will this model stay proportionate to the number of active cases or will it drift off? i.e. with such a simple model, would an RR of say 100 this week represent exactly the same number of active cases if the RR returns to 100 after a month or two on the other side of a 'wave' for example.
