Re: Repeated Bullying By Your Boss

Al Where you have confused me is over whether you think she has been the victim of injustice (a witch hunt) or if your vast experience tells you that swearing etc at subordinates is good practice. I think that sort of behaviour should be avoided because its wrong and counterproductive. Yes, I think...

Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

My simplistic (and undoubtedly technically "wrong") way of thinking about "what public debt is" is that it is what we have to pay back. So borrow £100m to build something we have to pay back that £100m to whoever owns the debt. That we may be able to make some money from whatever...

Re: Repeated Bullying By Your Boss

Can you explain what this means? As Al's failed to clarify let me interpret it for you. In Al’s world some people are better than others, let’s call them sergeant majors. Also in Al’s world some people are weak and foolish, let’s call them ninnies. SM trump ninnies so therefore treating other peopl...

Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

I wonder if it's more than just what is done with "the economy" or rather basing decisions on flawed belief on impacts on "the economy". I don't know details of all of those countries on the chart but I understood that many of the far eastern countries had far better other strate...

Re: ...How to make my bike/trailer/seat light up like a christmas trees

Expensive but https://beryl.cc/shop/laserlight . I don't have one but if I was riding at night often I'd like one but projecting behind me (for cars approaching from behind). In fact if I was regularly riding after dark I'd probably pay that price, even in rural quiet country lanes. Edit: Cheaper ve...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

I think what he's doing now is searching for some psychological prop to justify to himself however tenuously that he didn't fail. And his threshold for that psychological support is dropping with each court case thrown out. It will be interesting to see how low that ego threshold will drop. I hope f...

Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

Two months ago exactly, SAGE called for a brief national circuit breaker to bring Covid under control. Then there were 5,594 new cases, 368 people in hospital and 28 deaths. Yesterday there were 20,252 cases, 16,444 people in hospital and 511 deaths. Apart from the needless deaths, needless additio...

Re: Repeated Bullying By Your Boss

....And Tory MPs as one tweet that she can't be a bully because she is very kind and she has to be tough. I find is amazing how so many Tory MPs seem to think that because she's nice and kind to them then she can't be a bully. Do they not understand that bullies pick on (generally weaker) individua...

Re: Repeated Bullying By Your Boss

Johnson's claim about "no feedback" - why did they pay-off an aid (£25,000) In claims reported by the BBC, the embattled minister was accused of shouting at a former aide with “unprovoked aggression” before removing her from her job. The aide received a £25,000 government payout after a th...

The sticky of a guide for new tourers was unstuck after it became a debating ground rather than a list of things to consider.Such is the way of things, I expect this may go the same way.

Another (maybe related) thought is a "convention/scheme" to help emergency responders. Obviously I don't know your in-laws so not suggesting any capability or lack of capability, but in a general context there is a scheme called "Message in a Bottle" where all medication/conditio...
