It was only yesterday that Matt Hancock was saying that home working should become the norm and all good employers should offer flexible working. He also called for a study into the efficacy of it as we don't know how it has effected productivity, but it should continue as it has improved well-being and because of how beneficial flexible working will be for women in particular.

I'm ready to go back to work if I'm honest. It'll be good if they go slow at the start with it being voluntary so the office is quiet and I can get all my work done without the inevitable chaos.

Actually, just have it so that you can work from home whenever you want. Book in advance the days you're coming in so there's desk-space and it doesn't breach max occupancy. Everyone's a winner.

Precisely, the focus of coverage on China seems to be limited these days to CV-19, Hong Kong (the laws have been passed) and whenever things flare up in the South China Sea. A couple of letters have gone to the UN's High Commissioner for Human Rights, for whatever use that really is.
Blind eyes seem to be given largely because of the global supply chain of things and China being the biggest exporter by a mile.

Indeed, but the point made in >>26292 is that the abuses endured by Palestinians are more than just "turned a blind eye".

The realpolitik of China's economic position might go a long way to explaining that, and at a guess I'd say it's simply Israel's position as a middle eastern ally giving them the same benefit; but they certainly seem to be more pro-actively shielded from criticism, not simply have criticism brushed off.

Perhaps more to the point, though, nobody's going to try and conflate criticism of the Chinese government over their treatment of Uyghurs with hatred of an entire ethnic group and paranoid conspiracism.

Millennials throw away 633 meals a year because they don't know how to reheat leftovers

Millennials throw away 633 meals a year because they don't know how to reheat leftovers. Those who took part in the poll said they would rather bin food than re-heat it, admitting good food is going to waste.

Researchers found the amount of food millenials confessed to throwing away adds up to more than 1,700lbs. The poll, conducted by cookware brand Pyrex, found millennials - aged 18 to 34 - waste more than three times as much as people aged above 34 who throw out the equivalent of just 186 plates of a food a year - 225 kilograms or 493 lbs. And the millennial food waste mountain is more than double the average food waste in the UK of 300 plates of food - just over 800 lbs per household.

Almost a quarter of millennials (23%) admitted they do not know how to deal with leftovers. By comparison just six per cent of people aged over 55 said they did not know what to do with leftover food.

A further 18 per cent of millennials said they eat out instead of eating the food they have at home leading to even more waste. Just four per cent of those aged over 55 said the same.

A fifth of millennials (21%) said they create yet more waste because they get bored eating what they already have at home compared to just seven per cent of those aged over 55. One of the other main reasons good food is thrown out is because 38 per cent of people fear they will get sick if they eat it after its 'best by' date.

Almost as if the one thing that needs to change is the one thing none of them want to confront changing. It's the economy stupid! /smugface

As for defunding the police, i really struggle to understand why people haven't thought more than two minutes into it. I obviously hate the pigs, as a yoof who grew up transporting quantities of drugs around in my car that would have had me banged up. But it has to be acknowledged that reducing police presence, in absence of any other social change mechanism, impacts poor communities disproportionately.

In other words, we can't get rid of the police until we have taken care of poverty. But it is, as usual, my speculation that by the time we've got rid of the poverty we might just find that we never needed to, and we had our priorities confused; almost as if some higher power was deliberately misdirecting us.

Defunding the police is really more apt for america, where officers commonly have million dollar pensions, top of the line guns, armour, and vehicles, and tiny rural town police forces end up with ex-military tanks, and overtime pay that encourages actively seeking an arrest, any arrest, ten minutes before your shift ends so you can make four or five hours double time booking the perp.

In the UK our police aren't quite as well funded, so it makes less sense, though I would argue that, in the case of my local police force at least, they probably don't need eight brand new unmarked BMW X7s and the loss of them wouldn't particularly put impoverished areas at any greater risk.

Even then, I'd say it's not that they're getting too much funding, just that we're letting them spend it on the wrong things. Maybe they don't need flashy cars, but by the same I don't see how stopping them having flashy cars would meaningfully prevent them abusing their power. They'd just be abusing their power while driving an Astra.

What needs to be done is redirecting their funding into more de-escalation and non-violent conflict resolution training. In the case of American coppers especially, even just sending them on something like the SIA badge course our JobCentre sends people on would probably give them better de-escalation skills.

The whole system of US policing trains and selects for sociopathic behaviour, sending them on a de-escalation course won't cut it. The idea is to replace them in the 90% of situations they respond to where they'd be better off acting as a counsellor or social worker with an actual counselor or social worker.

China and India don't actively despise each other on the same level as India and laplanderstan do and no nukes have flown there yet, so I doubt this will precipitate a WW3 esque conflict.

Buzzfeed to close UK news operation

Online media firm Buzzfeed is to close its UK and Australian news operations. The US company, which set up its London office in 2013, said the decision had been made "both for economic and strategic reasons".

Buzzfeed said it would be focusing on news that "hits big in the United States during this difficult period". Some staff will stay on to cover social news, celebrity and investigations for US readers, but it is thought about 10 jobs are affected

What's happening now will only enhance the powers of figures like Murdoch. News Corporation is a loss-making venture, but Murdoch doesn't need to turn a profit on news - he doesn't really mind the fact that it has lost around a billion dollars a year over the past few years, because it's cross-subsidised by the rest of his media empire. It's effectively a strategic investment in buying influence.

That's the reality of an unprofitable news industry. Comment is cheaper than reporting and there's always someone willing to bankroll propaganda.

Water buffalo kills man and injures two others in south Wales

A 57-year-old man has died and two people have been injured after being attacked by a water buffalo in Monmouthshire in south-east Wales, police have said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene on a farm near the town of Usk, while a 19-year-old man was taken to hospital with critical injuries and a 22-year-old woman sustained a serious leg wound. The buffalo was put down.


Now I'm not a farmer or a soap manufacturer, but farming water buffalo for soap seems a bit... odd?

After it's been processed it'll be completely identical to soap made from beef tallow, but given the niche nature of farming buffalo in this country, there's probably a lot more money to be made from selling value added products like soaps and leather and horns, than there is in just selling the meat alone.

I'm sad enough to have watched this week's PMQs and it was indeed unsettling. This wasn't exclusive to Starmer though, everyone was being nice and completely uninteresting like I was watching a Lord's debate about some minor B road construction. The issue is that there's no public interest in soundbites at the moment and you don't mudsling during a national crisis.

Only interesting thing was getting another look at Ian Blackford's football memorabilia.
