That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

We live near Parbold/appley bridge, the school is in Orrell, St Peter's, near the M58 M6 interchange. First year theyve offered it.

Parbold and it's big hill!

When the polar ice caps have shrunk even more, I reckon there'll be a decent deep water harbour there. :)

Anyway, back on point, does he know what he wants to do yet?

My lad is walking his GCSEs, and should go on further, but he says he doesn't want to, which is fair enough.

Can't get him to focus properly on looking into apprenticeships though. Not quite grasped the real world fully yet.

Seems to be the thing doesn't it? We're regressing as a species again! 

Think there's some of that but also some concern if they somehow can blast a vaccine out in 9 months when they usually take 2-5 years of human testing. 

I'd sooner be having an antibody test to see if I've already had it rather than a vaccine at this moment in time. 

I'm sure sharelle off the estate is just saying its a lie so she can stay on furlough til October though.

They can't. No way you'll be getting a vaccine by September. You might get one this time next year - and that's only because we're working with a sense of urgency we've never had before. 

And leave my Sharelle out of this. She's a fucking diamond! :)

So until then...

Stay alert 

Wear a mask or don't wear a mask 

Go to work if you're not on furlough or be unemployed from October if you won't 

Wash your hands

In the future, nanotechnology will allow us to be implanted at birth with a microscopic electronic capsule containing a lethal agent - it will float harmlessly through our bodies during life unless we transgress.

Then some bureaucrat somewhere will pull up our file and click on 'RELEASE TOXIN'...

Have you two got me on ignore?

The first post is a summary of the learning I'd deliver when PHSE touched upon vaccinations.

When we had our TB vaccs at school, well, the bumps on my HEEF (sp?) test came up, so I decided I had immunity - I did get a second opinion though, off my mate, before I snuck off for an early dinner from Eustace Street chippy.

Anyway, I've never had TB and I don't have an ugly scar on my arm either.

A bloke in the pub told me these teenage innoculations only last about ten years anyway, so everyone who had one (vaccination at school) could probably still get it I bet.

We were the last lot to be done an' all - well, they were - my easily led colleagues...

Well I had the jab, and over the years I've walked through fields full of cows and never got it.

Nor from the community- so it must be a very super duper one.

Haha yep the big hill. On a clear day you can see from north wales to blackpool tower. On a shit day you can see only see Skelmersdale. 

My lads the same, he thinks he's going to be a guitarist  in an indie band at the moment.  He's good at art, music, maths and technical stuff, so trying to push him down music technology, sound engineering, something like that.

He thinks his younger brother will be a pro footballer and sort him out. With the wages bwfc are likely to be able to pay in the near future, I very much doubt it.

Missus has an apprentice training agency (ATA) in the east mainly for construction apprenticeships and the model is to interview applicants with potential employers and if they like someone the missus employs them (not the construction company) and effectively does a contract with the "host company", does the PAYE, pastoral care, arranges college for day release or block training etc so the employer only has to train them, sign off timesheets and pay a monthly bill based on hours worked.  If the contract is for e.g. a year, and the employer wants rid after that time, missus keeps paying them, keeps sending them to college and places them with another employer so they are guaranteed to complete.The reason for this is that colleges will fill classes with kids who have no job who then get their NVQs and have to sign on or employers lay off their apprentices half way through their training when work goes quiet so the missus ensures they complete and get on the job training. In the NW there isn't a similar scheme so I reckon your lad needs to get a job with an employer who is happy for him to get his qualifications. What he shouldn't do is go to college without having secured a job first - I've seen how that works out.

Big spike in Texas 

I listen to some US based podcasts. Joe Rogan is one. They think it's over in most states. Trump's election campaign rallies start next week, he's disbanded the covid task force, Dr Fauci hasn't been seen for 5 weeks. They're doomed.

Very dangerous grounds when peoples rights to choose are taken away. There will be no way of knowing the long term effects of these vaccines given that they are likely to be hurried in.

Sounds good.

You should have a good idea- are enough youngsters coming out with the requisite qualifications?

Can't help feeling that more scientific/computing/engineering related subjects are going to be needed, certainly for the long-term as the need for green technologies increases and perhaps a more capable manufacturing base in some areas as a result of the virus.

Well yes and no

Most degrees are BS anyway and kids don’t need one

more doing STEM would help. Would also put your plumbing costs down as a result

But what’s in the degrees are half the problem. You learn a computer language in an educational setting and it’s nothing like it is commercially for example

Folk like Carlos will tell you there’s a huge difference. The days of Maths and Physics degrees making C++ developers should be way behind us

For me, just fuck loads of degrees off; get more kids doing an apprenticeship type thing where they learn and have part to play in a biz setting

Correct, unfortunately the problem lies with their Parents, University to them is the ultimate, they don't seem to have the will to look at alternatives for their precious kids, and most don't want to know.

Yet if they did look at the options, there are plenty of positives in looking at alternative career, they would save copious amounts of money, their siblings won't be saddled with years of debt, of which doesn't guarantee them their dream or ideal job.

Some Parents are seeing it, just not enough at the moment, big companies need to build closer relationships with further and higher education

There's no law in UK to force medical treatment, including vaccines, on anyone at the moment, and I doubt there will be - they can stop you from doing stuff though if you don't have advised treatment.  

The vaccines they are testing now are based on Sars vaccines that have been worked on since 2004. Humans are being tested with the vaccines now.

These guys know what theyre doing. When the vaccine is created,  I'll eat my hat if the health risks from effects of the vaccine are anywhere near as large as the risk from the virus.
