Scottish exam results
at 21:22 4 Aug 2020

It seems that teachers’ assessments for pupils from the most deprived areas were marked down more than those from the least deprived areas.

Thread here:



Some pupils are going to have missed out on deserved grades for exams they never got to sit.

Edit: my iPad correcting exams to Evans doesn’t reflect spending too much time on here, honest.

Interesting piece on the accuracy of antibody testing for covid
at 10:05 4 Aug 2020

Basically, some people who have had severe symptoms have tested negative for antibodies whilst some with few symptoms have tested positive. This is one small sample and the findings would need to be repeated to be useful.

Has there been anything locally about rising Covid cases in Ipswich?
at 08:57 3 Aug 2020

There's a single line in an FT piece today mentioning an increase

"Away from the newly locked down areas, the latest data suggests that Covid-19 has also surged in recent days in towns and cities including Liverpool, Swindon and Ipswich."

Link, may be paywalled:

The Tory party come out of this badly too, giving him back the whip for a vote of no confidence and then letting his wife be the candidate for the last election.

Hopefully he gets a custodial sentence.

Football is an utter mess Part 5,689 - Charlton edition
at 15:25 28 Jul 2020

Standard reporting that they are in danger of being expelled from the League if they can't demonstrate sufficient funding:

https://www.standard.co.uk/sport/football/charlton-risk-expulsion-football-leagu

Key paragraph:

"There is scepticism about why Elliott, whose background is in property and hospitality, got involved in Charlton when football was still shut down and clubs feared going out of business. Farnell was Bury’s lawyer when they were expelled from the EFL, eight months after Dale bought the club for £1."

Namely, the CAS foudn that City obstructed the initial investigation and that the main reason for over-turning the ban was that they judged it time-barred.
