Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among children can lead to a wide array of behaviors with outcomes such as irritability, difficulty concentrating, and sleep issues (Danese et al., 2020) #ph260720 #child #trauma #PTSD

A major risk factor in the development of PTSD among children is exposure to childhood trauma. “One in four trauma-exposed children develop PTSD by age of 18 years.” (Danese et al., 2020) #ph260720 #child #trauma #ptsd

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":

A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

Excited to share our new work on the #pandemic's effect on demand for #public #schools, #homeschooling and #private schools. @kevin_stange @JoshuaSGoodman @abacherhicks

This work resonates personally with me-as it should for anyone attached to the K-12 public school system.🧵
We know, and many of us experienced, how the #Covid_19 pandemic drastically disrupted the functioning of U.S. public schools. But how much, and for whom, did this change the relative appeal of alternatives such as homeschooling and private schools?
We use state administrative data from #Michigan and national data from the Household Pulse Survey to build a consistent picture. 4 main facts emerge.

Just a quick thread on #evidence and #public #health interventions in the context of #COVID19. Some have suggested that common interventions, such as #masking, require a #randomized #controlled #trial before asking people, particularly #children to do this. 1/
To mask or not to mask, that is the question. Wait, I think we need more information, we should conduct an RCT before answering that query. Well...it depends. 2/
There is a trade-off here: what is the benefit collecting more evidence vs. the benefit of making a decision now with the information you have in hand? 3/

@transportgovuk (3/6) The High Court ruling was not made about the merits of the #Stonehenge #tunnel #scheme itself – but concerned points of law in the way in which the decision was made to grant permission

British Medical Journal #BMJ says UK #government’s #COVID-19 response created “maelstrom of avoidable harm”
On Tuesday, the #BMJ (formerly, British Medical Journal ) accused the British #government of having unleashed “a maelstrom of avoidable harm,”
including the deaths of up to 150,000 people “who died earlier than they might have” as a result of its disastrous response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Executive editor Kamran #Abbasi made this damning indictment in a comment on the testimony given last week by Dominic Cummings,
former adviser to Prime Minister Boris #Johnson. His account, Abbasi writes, leads to “the inescapable conclusion… that the disastrous manner in which the #government is run is a major contributor to excess deaths in the UK, although Johnson persists with his denials.”

A polling firm linked to #Brexiteer Nigel #Farage faces scrutiny over a short-lived company that its owner used to do political work for Farage’s party and the 12 million-pound ($15.5 million) campaign he fronted to leave the European Union, according to records and interviews.
As part of a broader probe, investigators for the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office are seeking details behind more than £186,000s in payments made by #Farage’s U.K. #Independence Party (#UKIP) to an entity established by the head of the polling firm Survation.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam ·
It's 1984 and my mother arrives in the #UK with 89 other Vietnamese refugees known as the "boat people". With just the cloths on her back and her four children, she's confronted with the local people of a council estate.
Unable to speak English, she expects hostility and racism.
And then this happens.
A young scruffy looking man steps up, takes off his coat and handed it to the freezing cold refugees. A gesture so touching,
that everybody later followed. People then went home to fetch clothes they didn't need and handed it to the refugees and ensured they were all fed and watered.
My mother has never forgot that moment, when she was able to use a coat to wrap her boys so they could stop shivering.

Covid-19: Social Murder, they wrote—elected, unaccountable, and unrepentant

BMJ 2021; 372 doi: doi.org/10.1136/bmj.n3… (Published 04 February 2021)

What went wrong in the global governance of #covid-19?
kabbasi@bmj.com
After two million deaths, we must have redress for mishandling the #pandemic
Murder is an emotive word. In law, it requires premeditation. Death must be deemed to be unlawful. How could “murder” apply to failures of a pandemic response?
Perhaps it can’t, and never will, but it is worth considering. When #politicians and #experts say that they are willing to allow tens of thousands of premature deaths for the sake of population immunity or in the hope of propping up the economy,

I'm fed up with reading that Mr #Corbyn was a weak Leader! Compared to #Starmer, I have to laugh. It took a strong Leader to change the Dynamics of the Party for the better, whilst at the same time maintain his objectives against a barrage of non support.
It took a strong Leader to reach out to people left broken with Agendas that havent helped those people that he took the brunt of... It took a strong Leader to rise above the spurious #msm, and a strong Leader to battle the #skullduggery.
It took a strong Leader to hold the #Government to account, and to get evil #Policies reversed, win By #Elections, challenge the #Opposition, and increase #Public support, which he did at his Rallies. That strong Leader achieved unity in a short time.

UKIP leaders have been fighting the demand for that information, and other details related to political operations, for almost a year, including in court.
The fact that the inquiry is looking at what role Survation may have played hasn’t been previously reported.

What went through David #Cameron’s head? Was it just a giant dollar sign, or did the former prime minister think #lobbying was his remaining calling in life?
Cameron’s work for disgraced banker Lex #Greensill tarnishes a legacy already darkened by misjudgments over #Brexit
& #austerity. We thought he was hiding in a shed in #Oxfordshire. In fact, in early 2020, he was camping with #Greensill and Crown Prince Mohammed bin #Salman in Saudi Arabia.
Then he was texting chancellor Rishi #Sunak to ask for #Greensill’s now collapsed financial group to get more #coronavirus support.
Former prime ministers earn enough for speeches to banks; they should not have to speak for them too.

A High Court Judge has exposed Boris #Johnson as a calculated liar who has misled the #UK Parliament and all it’s citizens in order to cover up the extent of illegal awarding of #PPE contracts to friends and #Tory’s donors without justification or contract award notices.
The stench of the most rancid hypocrisy and double standards which pollutes the #Tory party is foul and overpowering but yet again their hired poodles in the mainstream media fail miserably to hold them to account.
Not a single mainstream media press outlet has demanded Johnson’s resignation. What a woeful media we have.
Literally billions of pounds worth of contracts have been awarded to #Tory mates and associates without proper notices, transparency or accountability

New #UK science body could be used as ‘cover for cronyism’

Originally the brainchild of Dominic #Cummings,
