Saw on BBC that it’s slowing down in Europe but rapidly accelerating in other continents (I assume that means South America & Africa).

 

North America is good for about a quarter of those.

South America certainly, Brazil, Peru and Mexico both look to be rising exponentially at the moment- https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries - and are very likely under-reporting cases too (definitely in Brazil's case). India's likely to really take off soon, too.

University tuition fees don't seem like such a good idea all of a sudden.  The students don't want to get into mounting debt with the economic outlook being so bleak for when they graduate, leaving a black hole in university finances.  What an unholy mess. 

They never seemed like a good idea. And they've ruined English universities in my opinion...

Yep, they're money obsessed, student numbers are all they care about as are research grants. Their finances seem to be previously based more and more on foreign students and even before this there seemed to be very little resilience in that funding model. The loss of Chinese students, for example, will hit Liverpool's unis like an atom bomb.

Is USA still rising outside of NY?

I think I read that 18 states have rising new case totals - there was like 20,000 nationwide yesterday and NY counted for about 1100.

California seems to be ramping back up as well.

I quite agree but coronavirus compounds matters badly.  Nobody will want to amass debt with such an uncertain future.

Haha, knew about the doctors, hadn’t heard about the exploding ventilator.
 

Did you see that Channel 4 documentary series on Putin recently? His corruption is on another level. It was inferred that he and the FSB were behind those explosions in apartment blocks in Moscow in 1999. He used them as an excuse to go to war with Chechnya.

Yeah I saw that one, could well believe it. I think we played a big part too though. Goodman sachs and chums were like flies around shit over there in the early 90s by all accounts, Putin apparently took on the role with the intention of it being short term in return for a big payday, he just wanted cash by all accounts.

 

He was quite Buddyish with Blair and Clinton back in the day and apparently even raised the prospect of Russia one day joining NATO, but the people around Clinton apparently shit a brick. Things then deteriorated under Dubya.

Most people that I know that went to Uni didn't give the debt a second thought. A girl I know is now in her third degree and has got something close to 60k of student debt.

 

You've always got the option of going to Scotland or Wales if you want to avoid it.

Government says it's fine for people to go out to go to the beach or park as long as they stay 2 metres apart, next day the media is look at all these idiots at the beach and using picture perspectives to make them look even closer.  It can still look busy and people be 2 metres apart. They're following government guidelines, if you don't like it shame the government.

That's all true. But I mean at an even more fundamental level - in terms of the relationship between teacher and student. Once it becomes (perceived as) a commercial relationship, the teacher is regarded as a service provider (by students especially) and the student as a customer (by management especially). That's the death of it - as an authentic pedagogical and even human relationship. It's become a form of prostitution.

 

This may all sound pretty abstract, but I experience it on a daily basis. And I've been around long enough to know that it used to be different and better.

I had a feeling those infection rates for London were complete bullshit. The right wingers at the Telegraph and the Spectator were using those figures to push for the reopening of London as well.

App not ready in time, despite assurances yesterday in the lower house which we all could see had no basis in reality!

 

Don't worry no questions for a few weeks due to recess at a time of national crisis, so the message given to the public will have been fine tuned and polished and fit for pleb consumption before any serious questions can be asked.

 

Fucking cretins.
