  1. This is a great story I've just found about this set: "That Summer we were invited to play some festivals in Europe. First up was Glastonbury. It rained all week leading up to the Glastonbury Festival and the field turned to mud. Our shoes were hosed down before we went on, to clean off the mud we had picked up backstage, where the Happy Mondays were kicking a football around. I looked out at people wearing plastic bags on their feet We were the first band on the big stage on day one, playing at noon to thirty thousand people. I should have been terrified, but I wasn't. The people were so far away, and I didn't know any of them personally, except for Kramer who was out at the mixing board Kramer wanted to join us for a few songs, like he had done on the last European tour. But Damon & Naomi didn't want him onstage anymore. They now thought it was a bit strange to have the producer jump onstage with us, and maybe they were right. I said I didn't mind if he played a few songs, but they had made their minds up In the middle of our third song I heard a sound behind me -- it sounded like someone else was playing guitar. Kramer. He had given the house sound engineer some pointers and had quickly made his way through the crowd to the stage, where he found my spare guitar and a spare amplifier. He couldn't resist -- he was Kramer. He wanted to play on the big stage at Glastonbury." (Dean Wareham, "Black Postcards")
  2. Galaxie 500 - Friday 1990, Pyramid. Was putting the tent up in front of them in the Pyramid field by the tree whilst thinking our neighbours look like they've been here months!
  3. I think the Mendip Climate Emergency Management Plan which is coming into force now may make a lot of difference, legislation to support and enable the transition to zero emission transport in the district, and zero waste will be the Festival's only stumbling blocks - as they're so good in energy, food provision, recycling, and land use. It's the changes in transport use that could prove interesting, and may mean ticket holders review their ways of getting to the Festival, or reconsider - and that may free up tickets to those with a greener ethos. I did ask for an interview with the festival about their plans to deal with the Climate Emergency legislation - but haven't heard back yet. I presume when I asked it wasn't such an issue as it will be for the 2021 event. https://www.mendip.gov.uk/media/24108/Mendip-District-Council-Climate-Emergency-Plan/pdf/MDC_Climate_Emergency_Plan.pdf?m=637187651593030000

  5. There’s good news this morning we are now up to 19 people recovered. The media are intent on focusing on the negative statistics. It’s in French but I found out from here: https://coronavirus.politologue.com/
  6. https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.02.07.20021154v1.full.pdf Computational and Statistical Sciences Division, Los Alamos National Laboratory, in New Mexico (PDF linked above) have estimated the latest transmission potential R0 value is likely to be between 4.7 and 6.6 - that's just nuts.
  7. that's alright, no offense taken
  8. It has now - still says 18....
  9. hoping you're right - it doesn't appear to be a stat that's reported much though
  10. Most articles seem to suggest around 2-4 weeks to recover in serious cases - a month ago we only had what around 8 cases so it's quite possible, it wouldn't change much to begin with the numbers have risen a lot in recent days.
  11. We have family in Italy, as you know, first hand news from them is awful, truly awful - yet here we appear to e greatly downplaying it, it's possible, and I believe Monday's press conference suggested it, that we have a different strain here (or differing strains)
  12. their data source is the WHO - assuming the government are doing their job correctly and reporting accurate figures to WHO then yes that's the sum total (though as you pointed out mild cases may not be reported to the WHO in the first place)
  13. they really aren't: https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 click the UK on the map However are non-severe cases listed in the total numbers of those with the virus anyway?
