A journey which started in 2016 has led to the publication of the #PREPARE study in @TheLancet today. In this #randomised study, we show that a 12-gene panel can reduce #adverse_effects by 30%. @CDSS_Liverpool @pandtuol

La “manovra stipendi” della #Juventus: storia di un gigantesco illecito. Doppio. Partecipato da tutti, l’intero Cda e 40 tesserati. Il club di #Agnelli vara la prima manovra nella primavera del 2020, in pieno Covid, e la ripete senza esitare nella primavera del 2021 (1. segue)
Tutto inizia il 22.2.20 con una mail inviata da #Agnelli ai suoi fidati collaboratori: #Paratici, #Nedved, #Cherubini, #Bertola. Agnelli dice che la perdita prevista al 30 giugno 2020 è di 177 milioni. “Il nostro obiettivo dev’essere contenere le perdite a -50 milioni” (2. segue)
L’idea iniziale di #Paratici è drastica: “Io dico che dobbiamo togliergli 3 mesi di contratto aprile, maggio e giugno”, scrive a #Cherubini. In realtà i primi colloqui con #Chiellini, capitano, non sono fruttuosi. I calciatori non ci stanno, serve una soluzione diversa (3, segue)

I’m at #Manchester Crown Court for the continuing trial of the nurse Lucy #Letby. She denies murdering 7 babies at the Countess of #Chester Hospital in 2015/16. She also denies the attempted murder of 10 other babies. Updates here, @BBCNWT and BBC on line.
Consultant paediatrician Dr Elizabeth Newby is describing how she treated an alleged victim, Child D. She says D as born in good condition but needed help with breathing shortly afterwards. By the evening she needed to have a tube in her windpipe to help….
…but by the next morning D was well enough for the breathing tube to be removed. D was able to breathe on her own in air. Dr Newby “felt it was likely that there was an element of infection” as D’s mothers waters broke early and there was a delay in her having a C section birth

*thread lungo

Parliamo di #Pioli,del suo impatto,del suo percorso al #Milan,partendo dal 9 ottobre 2019.
Arriva per sostituire #Giampaolo,appena esonerato a seguito della vittoria contro il #Genoa.
Prende un Milan che dopo 7 giornate ha 9 punti.
3 vittorie e 4 sconfitte.
👇 Image
Viene definito dalla stampa il "normalizzatore".
Il popolo rossonero non lo accoglie bene,c'è molta diffidenza per via di una carriera ancora priva di successi.
Ma a lui non interessa,nella conferenza stampa di presentazione parla di "idee,intensità,spregiudicatezza".
Debutterà solo 11 giorni dopo contro il #Lecce e parla di tutto.
Sopratutto cerca di impostare #Leao prima punta.
La sua prima formazione è:
#Conti #Musacchio #Romagnoli #Theo
#Kessie #Biglia #Paqueta
#Suso #Leao #Calhanoglu
Finira' 2-2 a San siro,nulla di che.

The Hale End Documentary provides a peep inside the men shaping the future of the next Arsenal stars. Through Per, the Academy Manager, and Adam Birchall, we get some useful insights into how the men are running the team. Here are a few anecdotes I picked 1/9
Per intimates that #Arsene Wenger signed him to bring leadership into the football club. Current Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta & Per signed as players in 2011, just 3 days after that 8-2 thrashing by #Manchester United. Their leadership is still evident 11 years on 2/9
Per offers his life principles to the Hale End academy; The Four Pillars as he calls them

1. Be a life long learner. Do not get content - be hungry for more (mindset)

2. Be the most efficient mover; Move in the right direction and crucially, move at right timing. (Strategy) 3/9

1/ FiLiA is driven by the passion + dedication of its team.

Our annual event is unfunded and organised by volunteers. In 2019 we measured the Woman-hours that made FiLiA happen ... 8,344! It's more now, as FiLiA has grown.

Some things along the way ...
2/ We took FiLiA out of London to reach more Women and to grow the movement. Our CEO moves every year to hear from and engage local Women.

We gained charitable status.

We started the Friends of FiLiA scheme to support Women to participate in FiLiA.…
3/ We've held FiLiA in #London #Manchester #Bradford #Portsmouth

1,350 tickets were sold last year. We anticipate that #FiLiA2022 in #Cardiff will be even bigger

So far Women from 62 countries have made their way to FiLiA to speak.

NHS Digital figures show around 130 FGM #survivors in the NHS
Liverpool CCG area were seen by health professionals in the year to March – up from roughly 90 the year before.

Looking forward to hearing what should be an interesting debate from an illustrious panel on what contents of the #LevellingUpWhitePaper will really mean for local & regional policymakers #PolExEvents
First speaker Mayor @BenHouchen opens his talk saying that the #LevellingUpWhite Paper was never going to please everyone due to "different people wanting different things". However, welcomes the fact we now have definition for #LevellingUp & list of govt priorities #PolExEvents
Houchen says we now need to see a delivery plan ASAP. Gives his priority as the future of #Devolution - which now has a "sliding scale" between County Deals & creation of more Combined Authorities. Says we need to see clarity around devolution in rural areas #PolExEvents

The Abecedarians, the first band alphabetically in my collection. I’m not sure I have listened to this since I bought it. Fac 117, is a 12” 45, just two tracks, electronic with nods to other Factory bands. No idea what happened to them.
#abecedarians #factory #factoryrecords ImageImage
Backstory: In an effort to listen to a wider variety of the music I own for the first half of this year I’m dedicating a week to each letter. I thought I’d start with the disc that has sat leftmost on the shelves since some time in the eighties!
A Certain Ratio. A couple from them today, between the two marking a huge change from fucked to funky.

"Chi no xe omo resti sul pullman"
#Milanbenfica 22 maggio 1963.
Finale di #coppacampioni.
Il paron #Rocco disse questo alla squadra all arrivo a #wembley.
Scesero tutti i calciatori ma dopo qualche metro si voltarono,non c'era Rocco,rimasto sul pullman!
Il #paron era questo👇
Arrivò nell'estate 61 a #Milano ma non furono rose e fiori.
Voluto da gipo #Viani ma accolto con freddezza dal presidente #Rizzoli.
Voleva qualcuno con più stile alla guida del #Milan.
#Rocco applicava il catenaccio,un evoluzione del sistema svizzero denominato "#verrou"
Praticamente,un terzino marcatore in più.
Questo sistema fece la fortuna del #Padova dei "poareti" che lui rese grande.
Le frizioni iniziarono quasi subito.
Era appena arrivato anche #Rivera ma il #paron lo riteneva troppo gracilino e chiese di mandarlo a farsi le ossa.

1) Can we ask for your help, please?

The @nhs says;
The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

✅a high temperature
✅a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3..…
2) or more coughing episodes in 24 hours

✅a loss or change to a sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal more coughing episodes in 24 hours

We have been asking the #NHS to update this list since
3) LCK started.

The @CDCgov has a more comprehensive list of symptoms.

As #kids are going #BackToSchool without mitigation measures we can expect to see child cases increase and families need to know how to spot infection and when to get a #PCR #test. (Keep reading)

I have heard of many a senseless, spiteful, pointless act of downright scumbaggery, but today's revelation takes the fucking cake - literally. Takes ALL the food right off the tables of people who have actual nothing!


First off here's a news story. But it's actually fucking WORSE than it even looks here.

It's actually happened THREE times in succession now, the first day some CCTV went up that could have helped protect them, the bastards smashed that too.

As of now, they are £250 down just on getting into the locks- that's not even the expensive part!

They'll have to move. There's a bit left on their lease they'll have to pay but they've been paying under market rent.

They can't afford higher rent but it's move or close. 😠

The whole #Manchester situation has been represented in media appallingly. They, intentionally or not, played to the left wing by presenting the Government as authoritarian Scrooge's while simultaneously playing to the right, representing Andy as playing politics with #COVID. /1
The nuance (which always exists beneath any headline or even article) is a lot less dramatic. Here is what I know, and it is by no means complete so feel free to add to it in the replies. /2
Let's start with the £22m. This is not what the Government have given Manchester in punishment for Andy not taking the £60m. It is an entirely separate funding package and has never been part of the negotiations. /3

New data added to our #GreaterManchester Recovery Tracker reveals tighter #COVID19 restrictions didn't lead to large falls in footfall in September 👣…
By the end of September, #Manchester city centre still lagged behind other local centres🐝

It had recovered only 51% of its pre-lockdown levels of activity, which corresponds to a two-percentage point increase compared to last month 🛍️🍽️
Looking at other town centres in Greater Manchester, #Wigan ranks first, having recovered 103% of footfall, followed by #AshtonunderLyne (79%) and #Bury (79%).

Less than a fifth of workers are back in offices 🚉💼🏙️

@ValentineQuinio analysed the latest worker footfall data 👣 added to our #HighStreets Recovery Tracker last week.

Here are the key takeaways 👇…
Averaged across all 63 largest city and town centres in the UK, by the end of September worker footfall was at 1⃣9⃣% of pre-lockdown levels, which only represents a 2⃣-percentage point increase compared to a month ago.…
But this hides significant geographic differences across the country, with large cities like #London, #Manchester and #Birmingham once again lagging behind smaller places like #Basildon or #Mansfield.

Big disappointment for animal lovers: a snake wrapped around its neck and head is not a proper mouth and nose protection against the coronavirus. Image
North West England's public transport services came to this clarification after a man was seen on a bus with a live snake around his neck and mouth.
Passengers on the bus on the way to Manchester would have thought at first that the man was wearing a particularly colorful mouth and nose protection, reported the Manchester Evening News newspaper.
