Recientemente se anuncio que los estudios clinicos de la #vacuna #Patria en #Mexico se habian completado. Este 🧵presenta datos utiles que todos deben saber para decidir usarla. Toda la informacion es publica y no se viola ningun secreto de confidencialidad o seguridad nacional. Image
(2) Esta semana, la directora del @Conacyt_MX, la Dra @ElenaBuylla, anunció que ya está lista la #vacuna "Patria" contra #SARSCoV2 y que la producción de las primeras 4 millones de dosis comenzará a finales del 2023. Pero que evidencia cientifica se debe tener para este anuncio. Image
(3) Lo primero es saber como esta diseñada la #vacuna: el gen que codifica a la proteina S de #SARSCoV2 esta clonada en el virus de #Newcastle, que no causa enfermedad, pero que permite que los humanos produzcan anticuerpos contra la proteina, parecido a la vacuna de @AstraZeneca Image

Despite #NUFC’s loss to #MUFC #Karius showed that he is more than capable of playing at the top level!

Our model at #GKxG found his shot stopping was worth 0.22 goals more to #Newcastle than if they had an average #PremierLeague GK in goal

Full article👇… Image
#Karius made 8 saves vs #MUFC, but GKing is about quality not quantity!

5 of the saves had xSave>99% thus #PremierLeague GKs save them every time!

The 2 interesting & difficult saves were the 1v1 vs #Bruno & #Weghorst’s long range shot! Which beat #PL GKs 41% & 29% of the time! Image
It was these saves whose difficulty outweighed the 2 goals #Karius conceded meaning #Karius saved an above expected amount of shots in the #LeagueCupFinal

#Karius could do nothing with the #Casemiro goal (xSave probability<5%) but the #Rashford goal was a little more interesting Image

A word about natty with regard to US domestic thermal #coal.

1) Switching occurs at ~$3.50...may get that in back half of the year, but not close yet.

2) Producers are already sold out for 2023, so natty px doesn't have a big impact on '23 bottom line.

Int'l matters more 1/x
Re: TTF, prices roughly back where they were post-Dec '21 spike, and the entire curve has consolidated here. If EU industrial activity accelerates, that's constructive for both met and thermal #coal. 2/x
ARA (EU-delivered) thermal #coal prices already mimicking TTF consolidation. While we aren't getting another big spike to $300+ we are def not headed to $100 immediately with TTF at $60-80...think we're at $180-200 for most of winter. 3/x

Was going to post this earlier but ran out of time...

ARA (EU-delivered) thermal #coal prices rolling down to $215 today, putting the curve back into contango for the next six months.

Shoulder season rug pull over.
The #Newcastle thermal #coal curve has decidedly not endured a consolidation/correction/cleansing aking to API2...and let me be clear that it may not at all.

LNG/High CV coal market dynamics in Asia Pac region still markedly different from temporarily high gas/coal storage in EU

It's Day 242 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine - you know that war where Moscow bragged it would be in Kyiv in 3 days and have control on Day 4.

This is the daily news thread of all the relevant developments as we complete the 8th month of the illegal conflict.

A lot of interesting news came in late last night, including explosion and deaths at a gunpowder factory in #Russia and freedom for two more villages in #Kherson.

If you want to catch up on yesterday's stories, here's the start of Saturday's thread:

The #UK update today takes a look at the "Wagner Line" of defence.

I covered this a few days ago and Whitehall also concludes #Russia has accepted that its defence needs to be way behind current front lines.

I'm organising addressing @NewcastleCC about the reprehensible decision to allow the entire Council Tax department to work remotely and process every taxpayers private data in staff's unsecured and unsupervised homes. This has happened with no public consultation #Newcastle
Currently they are trying to get me to accept a written statement that will not be a matter of public record. Not a chance. I will address the council publicly in the chamber. Every resident's personal information is currently at risk and they aren't even aware
Pandemic or not, we have been forced to accept an unacceptable risk to our private and financial data that no amount of keylogging or firewalls can prevent. The main flaw in any and all data security is the human element. Unsupervised staff can and do steal and sell data.

Thank you Dan, once again you’ve explained with absolute clarity one of the most significant failings of @10DowningStreet ‘s catastrophic #COVID19UK management.

1/22 - Sorry🙏🏻💙
I qualified as a GP in 1996, but no longer work in “normal” General Practice & have not done so since Oct 20.

I now spend 90% of my time as a “GP in A+E” & work in our 2 local UTCs.

I’ve also been part of the local #COVID “hot” services - in our #HotSite & doing home visits.
From talking to my GP friends & colleagues, I believe my experience is not at all uncommon & has played a HUGE PART in the current #GPCrisis - both for the health & wellbeing of our patients but also for the recruitment/retainment AND wellbeing of GPs themselves.

Listening to @RicHolden makes me want to scream.
NO! We are NOT in a lockdown & no one is asking for all restrictions to go on for “in perpetuity”.
#Tory MPs are spreading relentless #COVIDDisinformation
His comments are as unscientific as they are dangerous.1/5 @claremcdonnell1
#COVIDisAirborne #MasksSaveLives - SIMPLE! I’m seeing the direct result of these figures & graphics in #Newcastle EVERY DAY.
As I said y’day- the #NorthEast is a RAGING #COVID fire!
Irresponsible, reckless, callous & ignorant views spewed daily from the mouths of @conservatives.
There is another way ➡️ listen to the 1000+ experts (drs & scientists) who signed the letter that was published in @TheLancet last week.
Listen to @WHO!
This #Conservative government do not have our best interests at heart!
@RicHolden - you are in the #NorthEast FGS!

Do All Dogs go to Heaven? My new research published today in @AntiquityJ! Join me on an archaeological journey of human-animal relationships through time in my survey of #PetCemeteries. A thread 1/18👇🏼🐶🐱… Image
Gravestones are full of fascinating information! They tell us so much more than who is buried where and when they died… Additional text, designs and symbolism can reveal how a society constructs social relationships, what they thought about death and peoples’ emotions. 2/18 Image
So, given this incredible data available to us, in this research I ask: what can pet cemeteries tell us about our changing relationship with animals through time? 3/18

The Govt #OFQUAL algorithm expressly discriminates against ambitious Comprehensive schools stretching their students to achieve the very best, schools like #SacredHeart in #Newcastle - my blog for @ChronicleLive #AlevelResults…
Here is what one of the downgraded students told me "I can’t sleep because my hopes and dreams have been shattered. With less than one month to go, I don’t know what university I will be attending because my first choice university was snatched away from me... #alevels2020
...this is devastating and disgraceful! We’re being punished by the government’s algorithm, when it is our teachers who know us best. The government has failed our generation and have destroyed our destiny’s."#ALevelsResults

Good luck & best wishes to all those receiving their #AlevelResults & #vocational results today in #Newcastle & across the country. You have faced challenges no other year group has had to endure. You are to be congratulated in everything you achieve.
Hearing VERY WORRYING examples of #Newcastle #AlevelResults slashed by nationally imposed #algorithm that does not reflect individual achievement. Constituents who have suffered unfair grade cuts, get in touch. We can't allow young people's & our city's future to be so damaged.
I understand that in particular girls studying #Physics have been impacted by an algorithm which does not take into account all the work by schools (& campaigners!) to increase & widen girls participation in Physics, some losing places to study #Engineering #AlevelResults

Last year, #StrokeStories aired on @ABCTV .

A group of #stroke survivors trusted us to develop a play script from their personal stories of trauma, survival, #resilience, growth & disability pride. They learned playmaking skills, & performed the piece.…

The ensemble of #stroke survivors helped shape the research around the impact of the Devised Theatre Performance Process.

Group playmaking & theatre performance is social, stimulating & cognitively challenging. Group members said it brought #joy, agency & a sense of belonging.

Here are my views on #Armstrong & other statues & the #BlackLivesMatter movement.…
Following yesterday's violence it is important to say that no #Newcastle statues are targeted by anti racist protesters, who seek to eliminate racism not stone statues. But yday our police were targeted by anti anti-racism protesters in scenes which would disgrace any movement
Newcastle has always fought for social justice & been on the right side of history on so many great issues from Trade Unionism, to the Great Reform Bill, the Suffragettes, Civil Rights in US & South Africa to the Miners Strike. Surely we can be on the right side in this debate!

We are so lucky in #Newcastle to have such fantastic #NHS hospitals, clinics & GP services with so many dedicated staff making sacrifices all the time to keep us healthy & make us better, I want to express my thanks to all of them at this difficult time @NHSMillion
We have to do all we can to help them to help us & right now that means following the public health advice, whatever your age, #StayAtHome #WashYourHands #HelpEachOther
And we are also really lucky to have our fantastic #ToonMoor & so many parks across the city. I cycle & run in them regularly. Whilst some of us can still use them safely, not everyone is doing so. We need to maintain 2m distance at ALL times.

Range anxiety is a real concern for changing our mindset around #ElectricVehicles.

Just how close to the left of the needle can we go?

Tomorrow I’ve got a few offsite #CSIRO meetings between #Newcastle & #Sydney, so why not come on:
“A day in the life of an #EV

Starting, NOW!
Off on the first leg of the #EV trip, leaving work for the day: I have an 8am meeting so will get a head start.

Leaving the charging point behind & starting with a ~full charge + range of 429 km.

Bring on tomorrow’s #RangeAnxiety experiment!
@TheDriven_io @AEVA_National #CSIRO
First leg of #RangeAnxiety experiment 🧪went as expected:

16 km trip from Office to Home, 15 km reduction in range.

Now to take the dog 🐕 for a bush walk & await the next experimental leg.
