The examples I've listed above note that even plain cloth masks are effective. Obviously not as effective as medical grade, but still better than no mask.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I was strongly against reimposing mandatory masks because, aside from it being demonstrably obvious that they don't do anything, they are a restriction. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2776536 https://www.ox.ac.uk/news/2020-07-08-oxford-covid-19-study-face-masks-and-coverings-work...

Re: Currys PC World Dixons Carphone Warehouse Team Knowhow to become "Currys"

Manchester's White City branch has had the rebrand for at least a couple of weeks now. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Currys/@53.462365,-2.2829685,3a,75y,90t/data=!3m8!1e2!3m6!1sAF1QipPX3H5xNjoHbwQfA_kZjGdBz-lEG9R4gmUeeJzL!2e10!3e12!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipPX3H5xNjoHbw...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

There was someone being interviewed on the news earlier about it, and how she has brain fog and feels tired all the time etc, and I couldn’t help but wonder if it was just the consequences of an unhealthy lifestyle that she was describing. Am I a bad person for thinking that? It’s not a criticism o...

Re: Govt/NHS Digital plan to share patient data

I’m not particularly savvy with stuff like this. We’re assured that data will be anonymous - if so what’s the issue? I've read several reports that it will be incredibly easy to deanonymise the data. Groups of GPs are campaigning against this sharing, partly on these grounds. https://www.theguardia...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Derby's shopping centre, formerly Westfield and Intu is undergoing a name change and rebrand. I was fully expecting them to revert to the pre-westfield name of 'Eagle Centre' but the new owners have gone a bit left field with DERBION. The logo reminds me of a certain ITV region's idents in the late...
