New report: ‘What happens in English generalist #daycentres for #olderpeople? Findings from case study research’ by @katitao @JillManthorpe & Anthea Tinker
@hscwru @DunhillMedical @NIHR_S_L
1/6 Image
The report aims to improve understandings of #daycentres among social care/health professionals & potential collaborators. It showcases the complexity of these services & their diversity, shedding light on what makes them multi-faceted ‘interventions’. 2/6
The Covid-19 pandemic led to a greater appreciation of the need for in-person contact and the difficulties facing some older people when they could no longer meet other people in their #daycentre when these closed temporarily. 3/6

1/ We are in the final days of a major project to rebuild the complex and busy Lewisham Junction, #London

This thread will look at the various stages of work over the past 8 days, and why the project is important for @Se_Railway passengers.
2/ In the early stages of any track or junction replacement, after disconnecting power and signalling, we rip out the old rail, sleepers, and ballast.

The vast majority of the old materials will be recycled.
3/ Special matting and new ballast are laid to form the new track bed.

We used more than 6,300 tonnes of new ballast for this job.

But, why is the track bed so important?

⚠️🚦 Sorry to say we have a signalling problem in one of the worst places it could be - right outside #Lewisham station. We've got a team on site investigating the issue but it means disruption to @Se_Railway services this evening and we advise people check before they travel. /1
@Se_Railway A detection circuit that tells us where trains are has failed on the scissors crossover in the picture, putting all signals on the approach to red (as you can see in this @traksyuk graphic). We are having to talk each train past those red signals manually. /2
@Se_Railway @traksyuk That takes time and would cause major problems if we tried to run a normal evening service, so many trains have been diverted away from #Lewisham itself until we can fix this. If you follow @Se_Railway they will have those details. /3

NSW Health advises that fragments of the virus that causes COVID-19 have been detected in the Marrickville Sewage Network.
This catchment includes about 42,000 people and takes sewage from the following suburbs: #DulwichHill, #Marrickville, #SummerHill, #Lewisham, #Ashfield, #Haberfield, #Petersham, #Lilyfield and #Leichhardt.
NSW Health is asking everyone in these areas to be especially vigilant in monitoring for symptoms, and if they appear get tested and isolate immediately until a negative result is received.

⚠️ We're really sorry that @Se_Railway passengers in #Lewisham have had a disrupted morning after an electrical fault caused a train to lose power near #TannersHill. This picture shows the problem clearly. ⬇️ /1
Traction power supply cables are attached to the live rail using metal bolts called lugs. In this instance something has caused an arc to start and it's burned through the lug and cut the power to the line. A train was approaching at the time and it was stranded as a result. /2
This screenshot shows the location when the train (called 2U56) was trapped on the line between #Lewisham and #Nunhead. We worked with @Se_Railway to rescue passengers using a side-to-side evacuation bridge between trains, and they were taken back to Lewisham. /3

Outlined briefly below is a balanced TEN POINT SPIRITUAL PROGRAMME for the family which each individual can use:

(thread, in instalments) Image

The first act of each day should be the Sign of the Cross. It involves the body and soul and is an expression of our faith in a nutshell. The basic doctrines of three Persons in one Godhead and the Son becoming man and dying on the Cross for our salvation
1b) are all contained in this act of faith. After making the Sign of the Cross, it is well to add: "Behold I come to do Your will, O God."

1. Our Divine Redeemer Jesus Christ is the spiritual King of our souls; and it is by the love and spirit of his cross that he must reign in them. By this happy instrument he has rescued
#ExaltationoftheHolyCross Image
2. from the power of sin, and conquered death and hell.

But do not our sloth and malice still hold out against him? Have the boundless excess of his love, and the omnipotent power of his grace, yet triumphed over our hearts? Is his holy cross planted there? does it daily grow
3. and spread itself in our affections?

The spirit of the cross, or of Christ crucified, is the spirit of that perfect humility, meekness, charity, patience, and all other virtues, which he preaches to us by his cross. So long as self-love, pride, sensuality, or impatience

It’s Friday but we know that for many @se_railway
passengers, it’s not been a happy one, after problems at #Lee and #Lewisham
last night. Many people have asked us about #Lewisham so here is a VERY LONG
THREAD with some colourful diagrams to leaven the technical detail. 1/
#Lewisham is the confluence of several routes + the pic
below is the immediate area. The track and signalling dates from the 60s-70s and it has been busy in all that time. Control has been moved to Three Bridges and the kit is constantly being maintained and worked on. 2/
Because of its location, trains through Lewisham can
suffer delay caused elsewhere and congestion builds as trains queue
for a slot onto the London Bdg approach (pic). That part of the railway is reliable now and congestion caused by problems
elsewhere is the issue there. 3/
