Interesting to see how Chartwells, of pathetic free school meal ‘hamper’ fame, appear to have different standards for the food they supply to private schools

This guy really just typed 'Georgia flag' into Amazon and clicked on the top result

I remember this like it was yesterday https://twitter.com/BBCPolitics/status/1345666019516411904

It is *burning me* to know that if Boris had closed schools literally two weeks earlier then my mum and 8 of her colleagues wouldn’t have all got Covid on the last day of term and she wouldn’t have ended up in hospital for 3 days over Christmas. but anyway.

the letter 'm' has just stopped working on my mac, and to find the letter so i can temporarily copy and paste it as i go, the first thing i thought to google was: 'agic ike'

Earlier this year I wrote a series of longform profiles of people who died of Covid for @guardiang2, called Lost to the Virus. As 2020 ends, I've put together a series of shorter profiles of the loved ones we lost. First up: cabbie and beloved dad, John Ho https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/dec/21/id-never-even-seen-him-ill-john-ho-died-aged-55-of-covid-19

interesting report about how the plastic industry only promoted recycling in order to sell more plastic + stop a ban on it – and how they had serious doubts recycling would work in the first place. (In 40 years, less than 10% of plastic has been recycled) https://www.npr.org/2020/09/11/897692090/how-big-oil-misled-the-public-into-believing-plastic-would-be-recycled

this report and thread is awful. the obsession over 'natural' birth being somehow superior/necessary compared to caesareans is utterly bewildering and toxic.

argh. "He framed it as being for our benefit: useful for 'establishing a work-life balance' and so we can 'see our co-workers and feel like we’re back in the office.'" https://www.thecut.com/article/my-boss-wants-us-on-zoom-all-day.html?utm_medium=s1&utm_campaign=nym&utm_source=tw

In early 2019 I went to the Philippines with filmmaker Remi Bumstead to film a short doc/report about women taking on illegal logging on their island. It was funded by @NatGeo and its now on Amazon Prime, for some weekend viewing 🙂📹 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08LMNFX4K/ref=nodl_

The alternative would be for Sky to not give a platform to conspiracy theorists.

this is a deeply irresponsible puff piece, riddled with far-right myths, and doesn’t challenge his words at all. And just days after a family drowned crossing the Channel, including a six and nine year old. I just filed my first ever complaint to the BBC over it.
