Bullying in schools
at 13:02 18 Jan 2022

Any education folk got any pointers on how long it might take a typical school to respond / sort out bullying?

Or for that matter, what the process might be? ie how the school establishes whether what's actually happened is bullying or not? Some of it takes the form of violence, threats* or name-calling about his appearance, but some of it's much more subtle and carefully hidden by the perpetrators.

*Not so subtle was the threat to 'Shank' my boy made several times last Monday. Edit: made by an 8 year old to another 8 year old. Almost certainly stupid banter, rather than an actual threat, but we obviously can't live with that sort of talk either way.

Weird transfer

Sorry its a norwich related thing so no worries if its bores some of you, but Cantwell to Newcastle for £15-20m.

https://www.edp24.co.uk/sport/norwich-city/canaries-ncfc-todd-cantwell-newcastle

Why would they want him?
Why would we sell him to a rival (stop sniggering)?
And who on earth would be that much cash for a guy who can't get in a failing team?

Many people in school and in my friends groups have picked up covid positives from LTFs in the last week or so. They really are worth bothering with - use them if you can find them!

"The West’s nightmare: a war on three fronts"
at 09:56 9 Dec 2021

My man Ambrose is worried: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2021/12/09/wests-nightmare-war-three-fronts

For non subscribers / bod's who've used their free article, snippets include:

"While Britain’s political class is distracted by a Downing Street party, the world is at the most dangerous strategic juncture since the Cuban missile crisis in 1962.

The West faces escalating threats of conflict on three fronts, each separate but linked by unknown levels of collusion: Russia’s mobilisation of a strike force on Ukraine’s border, China’s "dress rehearsal" for an attack on Taiwan, and Iran’s nuclear brinkmanship.

The least reported, but perhaps the most immediate, is the rapid nuclear escalation of Iran’s Islamist hardliner, Ebra Raisi. American and Israeli officials think the regime could be as little as two or three weeks away from the threshold required to assemble a nuclear weapon, at which point the Mid-East balance of power changes instantly.

Mossad chief David Barnea flew to Washington on Sunday night to test the waters for a pre-emptive strike.

While this bubbles, Russia and China are raising the ante in their parallel bids for imperial reconquest. Carl Bildt, the UN’s former Balkan envoy, warns that the two countries may launch attacks “simultaneously in a more or less coordinated fashion”, even if they are not formal military allies. This is the nightmare scenario.

Mr Putin may never have another chance like this to reestablish Greater Russia. All stars are aligned in his favour. Europe has disarmed. The green energy switch has not yet gone far enough to break dependency on Russia.

Xi Jinping is in less of a hurry than Mr Putin. The long-standing assumption is that China has time on its side over Taiwan, though less than before. America’s "Pacific pivot" is starting to take on real meaning and the Quad alliance with Japan, India, and Australia is hardening by the day. Xi might conclude that a parallel conflict in Ukraine along with a weak White House and a craven Europe offer an opportunity that may not recur."

Too many snippets to keep in line with copyright?

Btw:'real' as in a real reduction of gas flows, rather than how they've framed it.
