  1. Among the workers still out there taking risks are our taxi drivers. Sad news from Glasgow as drivers have died from COVID-19 and several are seriously ill. Glasgow cabbies shocked as several drivers 'very ill' with coronavirus https://www.glasgowtimes.co.uk/news/18358651.glasgow-shocked-shocked-several-drivers-very-ill-coronavirus/
  2. None of the advise really works I've followed it and still managed to pick up a small cold, so what are the chances of picking up COVID-19? The advise is more about slowing down the rate of infection rather than prevention so the NHS doesn't get overwhelmed all at once. Of course no government politician or government expert will admit that as at least from what I've read.
  3. Aye lump them in all in together you're not far off in thinking from the two racists. Then look at the UK and remember who the electorate of this country voted into power and then you also have BREXIT which was driven by racism towards immigrants. So we are not in a position to get on our high horse and call all French people racists and cowards.
  4. Debenham's used to be quite good up to about 10 years ago, now a lot of its clothing ranges are dated, bland and in the same market as Mark's and Spencers. They have not been flexible enough and changed with the times, all they've done is allow themselves to end up in one crisis after another and then reacted by closing shops and still having faith in the old and trusted way to run the shops. What would make them better and stand out from the competition. The one thing they did right was sell online, but still the range is poor and cheaper alternatives can be bought elsewhere. They could have downsized, looked closely at what they are selling and be more ruthless in selecting their ranges, there are plenty of other designers out there. Debenhams have shown a complete lack of flexibility and adapt to change. As retail evolution goes they are heading for extinction.
  5. They won't get diverted to the USA will they? US accused of 'modern piracy' after diversion of masks meant for Europe https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/03/mask-wars-coronavirus-outbidding-demand
  6. 18m ago 17:32 Italy records 766 more deaths from Covid-19 on Friday Lorenzo Tondo Italy registered 766 more deaths from Covid-19 on Friday - 6 more than Thursday - and remains the country worst affected by the outbreak with a total of 14,681 deaths. However, new infections continue to slow down, raising hopes of turnaround. Some 85.388 are currently infected with an increase of 2339 new cases, 138 less than Thursday. Some 1.480 have recovered in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number to 19.758. In total, 119.827 people have tested positive with coronavirus in Italy, including people who have died, recovered and the ones who are currently infected. Lockdown in the country could be extended until May 1 and ‘phase two’ of living with the virus can begin in mid-May, Emergency Commissioner Angelo Borrelli said Friday. The government has officially extended the coronavirus lockdown until Easter in mid-April, but Borrelli stressed the importance of keeping to “the most rigorous conduct in observing lockdown rules’’. ‘’The date of emerging from lockdown is still not certain at all”, Borrelli added. In the meantime, 77 health workers in Italy have died from coronavirus since the outbreak there began, as medics work relentlessly to try to turn the tide in Europe’s worst-affected country. The majority were on the frontline in the badly affected northern regions and contracted the illness at the start of the outbreak when protective equipment was lacking.
  7. Furious workers claim bosses are 'filling hand sanitiser with toilet cleaner' Staff at Aggreko (Power Generator Hire) claim they are having to go to work even though they insist they are not key workers. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/furious-workers-claim-bosses-filling-21808753
  8. Hermes workers say they fear becoming 'super spreaders' as the visit up to 130 homes a day https://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/health/coronavirus/hermes-workers-say-fear-becoming-super-spreaders-visit-130-homes-day-2528657
  9. Last four night shifts start tonight then on holiday for the next twelve days. Looking forward to not being ill this time and get a chance to do some improvements around the house, spring clean, gardening and get some time to play some games on the pc which i haven't done for over a year. Priority should have been building a boundary fence as the old one fell down during the winter storms, not sure if this is classed as essential?
  10. A decent size fridge will protect you from almost anything including nuclear blast.
  11. Makes more sense for the NCL to become the sixth tier with their part membership. This would open up the option for the North Juniors clubs to join as which happened with the East of Scotland League. Won't make everyone happy since the Juniors are regarded as having the bigger clubs. So how would that be sorted out, One NC Superleague below the HL with regionals? Or two regionals below the HL. Where would the line be drawn for East and West, the River Deveron, the Spey or the Moray Firth? Where would that leave clubs who play their football in the East Juniors north of the Tay? Should be interesting to see the reaction especially for the dominant clubs in and around the Aberdeen area and also clubs from the HL who might wish to field reserve sides or even teams in the local amateur leagues and the Isles who are of a decent standard.
  12. If you educated yourself into how the virus is spread you would already know this and it pretty much backs up what I was told at work as well. As I've said its more of a comforter or a behavioral reminder I don't have a problem with it if it helps to calm people down. Coronavirus: Face masks 'don't work for general public' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-52149139 Coronavirus is spread by droplets that can spray into the air when those infected talk, cough and sneeze. These can enter the body through the eyes, nose and mouth, either directly or after touching a contaminated object.
  13. Not in Fife from this - https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/news/local/fife/1232458/selfish-fly-tippers-urged-to-take-rubbish-home-after-spate-of-dumping-across-fife/ I know that some waste bins aren't being emptied on the day of collection and most if not all recycling centers are now closed to the public due to social distancing as they do get busy, but the recycling points can still be used. Up here in the Inverness our brown bin collection which isn't free has stopped.
