"we will provide further details of expected delays"

But it's said the same for weeks and they've never bothered to update it to say how bad the delays are. Such a disgrace.
@SarahHermit @cycleoptic @Danny_L_Kerner @m_e_l1978 @Doris09732931 @RoyalMail @RoyalMailHelp @SteelersDanny23 @JonJunior_ @lazyb94166458 A Royal Mail Special delivery 'next day guaranteed 1pm' parcel (not mine) finally turns up for delivery three weeks after sent.

📉 The Tories have tanked our economy and we are facing more massive cuts.

💡Scrapping 5 biggest road schemes would ‘nearly halve budget deficit'

🧵 A thread on why we need to scrap road building plans for the sake of our economy AND our environment 👇…
🌍 Building new roads is absolutely the wrong thing to do in a #ClimateEmergency

🚛 Roads increase traffic, noise, air pollution and carbon emissions

💰 The 5 largest road schemes in the pipeline as part of #RIS2 all have weak economic cases and will cost £16BILLION! @StopRIS2 An aerial photo of multiple...

A tunnel connecting Kent and Essex under the Thames estuary. 14.3 miles of new road and widening of the A2 and M2 in Kent

This will bring a massive increase in emissions and loss of wildlife and surrounding natural areas

The #PremierLeague is back!

How has your team’s GK performed?

#Pickford’s class shot stopping & distribution puts him top 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

#Pope, #Henderson, & #Leno have had great starts at their new clubs🧤

Big mistakes have cost #DeGea & #Ramsdale 😱

#Ward has struggled in all areas 😞
The GK xG model shown above looks at every shot faced, pass received, cross faced & through ball faced & calculates the probability of a goal occurring for & against the GK’s team before the event & after the event occurs!

Thus it measures & evaluates every action a GKs makes!
This allows all GKs to be given a single number measured in goals called

“Total Value in Goals”

Which describes the GK’s value to their side vs having a league average GK & takes into account everything they do meaning GKs of vastly different styles can be fairly compared!

El debut de Phillipe Coutinho en @AVFCOfficial fue soñado y no pasó desapercibido para los managers de @OfficialFPL , en este hilo veremos varios aspectos a tener en cuenta antes de comprar al Brasileño. #FPL #FPLenespañol
Por un valor de £7.0M Philippe ya es el jugador más transferido para la GW 23 (251.460 transferencias al momento de hacer el hilo) con tan solo 22 minutos jugados, 1 gol anotado y 6pts en total que parecen ser suficientes para que muchos managers apuesten por el Brasileño.
Desde la llegada de Gerrard el Aston Villa ha mejorado considerablemente, la inclusión de Coutinho en el esquema de Steve ya se veia prometedora pero sin duda la gran actuación del Brasileño de cara al fixture favorable de su equipo lo hacen una apuesta tentadora.

Romain Faivre’s evolved role as a centrally-positioned playmaker is noteworthy. He recorded 2 Assists, 4 Shot Creating Actions and 2 Goal Creations against PSG yesterday. 

#Faivre #Brest #Ligue1 #FootballAnalytics #DataAnalytics Image
Faivre is an excellent progressor of the ball. He switched between LM and RM last season, and thrived by making penetrating carries into the final third. His ability to break lines in combination with a strong defensive output will make him an exciting number 10 for Brest.
His biggest strengths lie in ball carrying & shot creating actions, especially through dead balls. His shooting could be improved. Moreover his new role as an AM could certainly add more carries & passes into the penalty area.

I see a lot of commentary about the @NHSEngland paper on the future of integrated systems. Here is a perspective based on what is happening NOW rather than on some conceptual future - a hugely exciting agenda and one that is right in front of you @WYHpartnership
The paper recognises the role of LAs and the #NHS on the BROADER DETERMINANTS of health, including the economy, the environment, housing. Between @LeedsCityRegion @WYHpartnership we have made substantial progress on aligning health, housing, economy e.g.…

I have been looking at the MSOA data for cases to 6 September 2020 at… . There are some places with very high case numbers.
#Sunderland - Houghton West (Houghton-le-Spring) has 45 cases in the week to 6 September. Which is an incidence of *560* cases per 100,000 (assuming a MSOA population of 8000) Image

If Swift chicks aren’t fed enough food they crawl out of their nests in a last ditch attempt to survive. Their chances on the ground are slim, unless they’re rescued. This Swift was tended back to life by my friend Linda and released this morning at St Aidan’s (thread)
Rehabbing Swifts is a meticulous process. They have to be carefully fed every 40 minutes during the day. This is Linda of @LeedsSwifts, a genuine #Leeds conservation hero! Linda holding a juvenile Sw...
Swift numbers have declined 53% in the last 25 years. As older buildings are renovated the holes that Swifts nest in are no longer available. @LeedsSwifts helps people across the city erect nestboxes for these wonderful birds. Read more here: A close up of a rescued juv...

Scientists from #Leeds and #Edinburgh universities and University College London analyzed satellite surveys of glaciers, mountains, and ice sheets between 1994 and 2017 to identify the impact of global warming.

Yorkshire has given the world the Brontë Sisters, the first-ever football club, Wensleydale cheese, the selfie and #Yorkshire puddings. It's also home to what's thought to be the world’s first public #railway. Wakefield’s Lake Lock Rail Road opened in 1798. #YorkshireDay 1/3 Credit: Chronicle / Alamy S...
Two centuries later, Yorkshire’s pioneers are helping to build Britain’s new low-carbon railway, #HS2, including @soil_eng in #Leeds who have spent 5 years investigating ground conditions for #construction of the high-speed route, while growing their business by 35%. 2/3 Image
Once complete, #HS2 will directly serve three of Yorkshire’s main cities – #Leeds, #Sheffield and #York – making it easier for people to live and work where they want; opening up new employment and leisure opportunities. 3/3 Image

There is a huge amount of false and misleading information about #HS2 on social media. Below is a myth buster thread which corrects some of the most repeated misconceptions about the project…
Myth 1: ‘HS2 only saves 20 minutes to #Birmingham’. FACT: #HS2 services will call at 25 stations in England and Scotland connecting 30 million people. It also frees up space on the existing network for more frequent stopping local services benefiting those who may never use HS2.
HS2’s budget is spread over 30 years and evens out at less than the annual roads budget. We will support 30,000 jobs at least 2,000 of which will be apprenticeships. The arrival of #HS2 is spearheading economic growth and is expected to create nearly 500,000 jobs around stations.

1/n Some reflections on #BAME inequality #covid19 and #NHSBirthday. Today is the 72nd birthday of the #NHS - founded upon a set of principles that we hold dear of universal access to healthcare, free at the point of delivery at a time when the nation was impoverished due to war
2/n A few weeks earlier, the Empire #Windrush arrived in the UK bringing the first of the “windrush generation” to help rebuild Britain, including the new #NHS. Things were not quite as promised for them.… #Covid19 #NHSBirthday #BAME
3/n I had the privilege of meeting around 100 #windrush nurses in #Leeds with the @BHILeeds and heard fantastic stories of their work building the #NHS, their pride in doing so and the struggles they had endured #NHSBirthday #BAME #Covid19

1)On 26/06/20, LASBT East working with @WYP_East, obtained a 3-month Partial Closure Orders for 13 high rise blocks in the Burmantofts/Richmond Hill Ward, preventing anyone from entering unless visiting a resident or with permission from the council.
2)The order prevents access to all areas of the buildings including the foyer, lifts and stairwells. Any person attempting to enter the blocks without permission that attempts to access any of the high rise blocks could face further action, including through the courts.
3)The order was obtained following a rise in ASB within Cherry Court, Marston Mount, Lincoln, Spalding, Grantham & Boston Towers, Naseby Grange, Roxby Close & Cromwell Heights #Leeds #ASB #HighRiseNuisance #Closureorder

War time sketch of Vera Lynn at Imphal ...India, by my Dad who was recovering from wounds and Malaria.

Learning today about the death of probably our greatest Dame…Vera Lynn, I was prompted to look at my Dad’s wartime sketches.
He was posted to India in 1941 and served in the Indian Army in the REME corps as an artificer ranked as Sergeant operating in both India and Burma campaigns where he was awarded the Burma Star.
Dads war began in 1939 at London Arsenal in Woolwich as did many new recruits, then posted to one of the many hills overlooking the Sheffield Steelworks taking care of the anti-aircraft batteries protecting that important industry.

The city of #Leeds set up a #ClimateChange Citizen's Jury with the task of producing recommendations.

It recommended to stop the planned expansion of the local airport.

The city council's reponse is a masterclass in #ClimateDelay discourse [Thread]…
What do we (we're preparing a paper on this) mean by 'discourses of climate delay'? This:
So Leeds council statement combines several types of climate delay discourse. Let's go through (and debunk) them one by one.

1) what we call "whataboutism". Leeds airport accounts for a trivial amount of air travel emissions, so why bother? Let the others do something about it.
