    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Around 15 years ago Mum gave one of her kidneys to her brother who needed a transplant. Since then she has regular hospital check ups to make sure things are ok. Her current check up is due and she had not heard anything from hospital (Gloucester) so rang today. She was told they currently aren't doing the clinics but plan to be running sometime in October

    Polish Extraleague 2020

    I think the top 2 scorers go in heat 15 and then the next 2 in heat 14 though they can be replaced by reserves or tactical subs (if 6 behind in the case of tact subs). So the team manager couldn't split up Emil & Lidsey Watching the Polish coverage in the past they would put up the nominated riders and if substituted cover up the replaced rider with the name of the replacement.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    The confusion can be highlighted by the plan to pay for people to eat out in August while at the same time suggesting it is too dangerous not to wear a make in a shop.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    From the NSO info if you sum up the figures so far this year. Think it would be interesting if the 15-44 age group was split into narrower bands, say 10 years, as it would be useful regarding the schools situation Deaths involving COVID-19 by age Persons - UK Deaths by age group Under 1 year 2 0.00% 01-14 4 0.01% 15-44 560 1.03% 45-64 5,139 9.43% 65-74 7,993 14.66% 75-84 17,691 32.45% 85+ 23,123 42.42% 54,512

    Isn’t it the case the teams get quite a lot of their budgets from the local councils though seems some reports of a few cutting back on the contributions

    Not sure many South African supporters will necessarily agree with that after the performance of their scrum was a basis for their world cup win last year

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Bild article a day after sky report Rest of article required subscription May 12, 2020 - 8:06 pm It is a small number that can cause great fear: the reproduction number. It is also called R-value for short, and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) plans to calculate it differently in the future. More precisely: "smooth". Theoretically, the R-value shows how many other people are infected. If it is less than 1, the infections decrease and they rise above it. What sounds simple is statistically highly complicated and uncertain. Because: Since last weekend, the R-value in Germany has been slightly above 1. Promptly, some feared the start of a new corona wave. But the RKI gave the all-clear.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    From BBC covid updates 15:34 England death figures: Which age groups are worst affected? Of the 23,709 confirmed reported deaths so far in hospitals in England of people who tested positive for Covid-19, 12,451 (53%) have been people aged 80 and over while 9,184 (39%) were 60-79, NHS England said. So 91% of all hospital Covid-19 deaths have been people aged 60 or over. A further 1,890 (8%) were aged 40-59, with 172 (1%) aged 20-39 and 12 (0.05%) aged 0-19. The number of deaths announced so far by University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust stands at 826 - the highest for any trust in England (though note that NHS trusts serve different-sized catchment populations). Barts Health NHS Trust has announced 570 deaths and London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust has announced 555 deaths. Four trusts have announced between 400 and 500 deaths: King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (466), the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust (459), the University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust (428) and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (402).

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    When I was young we were always told to walk against the traffic so you could see what was coming rather than with the traffic where you can't see what's coming. A lot of the time now people seem to walk with the traffic
  22. Happy retirement after such a long and successful career
  23. The verdict has been issued regarding the late TUE claim. This was rejected so then disciplinary procedure will follow. Though can appeal. Article on sportowefakty website.

    Who is financing speedway in Poland ?

    Was there a suggestion that part of the downturn as Bydgoszcz was due to the council putting money into athletics rather than speedway?
