I’ve been looking for a feature piece for a while and have found a painting I love but it’s not an original. It’s one of a limited edition of 45 hand embellished giclée prints on canvass so it looks like one. The original has been previously sold. The artist seems to sell all their oeuvres like this i.e. the original plus 45 such prints. Do prints hold their value like originals do? These framed prints are priced at 50% of the price of the original. Is that normal? Thanks
Takeover won’t happen. We’ll go on a run and get automatic promotion. Lambert will lead us to back to back promotion to the Premier League and will recall Phil to be the one chosen journalist allowed at press conferences.
That a new addition to the support bubble rules was introduced on December 2nd. Of course I’m not suggesting that anyone who could benefit from the new additional rule this Xmas had any influence on its addition...
From Gov.uk: Who can make a support bubble
Not everybody can form a support bubble. However, on 2 December the rules changed to widen eligibility for forming one.
You can form a support bubble with another household of any size if:
you live by yourself – even if carers visit you to provide support you are the only adult in your household who does not need continuous care as a result of a disability
*your household includes a child who is under the age of one or was under that age on 2 December 2020*
your household includes a child with a disability who requires continuous care and is under the age of 5, or was under that age on 2 December 2020 you are aged 16 or 17 living with others of the same age and without any adults you are a single adult living with one or more children who are under the age of 18 or were under that age on 12 June 2020
The track and trace app doesn’t even record location. Just proximity to others who test positive, not that the former should be a problem anyway, assuming you have nothing to hide. Politicians now joining the media in stoking up this obsession with privacy is ridiculous.
The journos etc asking the questions need the opportunity to come back to the delegates after they respond as at the moment, the delegates are getting away with generic, obfuscating and meaningless answers.
In town this morning (Hertfordshire) and lots of people on the high street for the Saturday fresh produce market. Long queues, no panic buying by the look of it but so many people are just not getting the message. Clusters of animated people chatting and laughing but so close to each other. If some of them are infected (which without a doubt some are) the others are going to end up at least carrying it. People are not getting the message about social distancing. The country needs an education campaign and fast.
The herd immunity strategy was ruled out very quickly when it was realised that the mortality price would be too high but there’s much debate about what happens after containment with no exit strategy. I realise that re-infection is not impossible but what if there was a volunteer program for low risk members of the public to be infected in a supervised way so you’d know and could immediately isolate so that herd immunity could be achieved without the mortality cost? I’d volunteer.
Reported by the Spanish police - there’s a video of someone walking a toy dog being stopped by the police and: “In some parts of Spain, dog owners are offering their animals for rent to walkers on classified ad website Wallapop. Prices vary, but some are renting their pets for as much as 50 euros (£45; $54) per walk.”
This is the ignorance and irresponsibility that has to be contended with!
