A medic's case against another lockdown

These words make me convinced that Covid-19 lockdowns are the wrong approach, and a growing number of doctors are on my side. Medical students throughout the West are taught the principles of beneficence and non-maleficence as pillars of medical ethics. In simple terms, they dictate that the likely benefits of our treatments ought to substantially outweigh their potential risks. In my practice, I prescribe medications like atorvastatin to lower cholesterol, or warfarin to thin the blood, because international, randomised, double-blind control trials have proven that their benefits far outweigh their risks. If I were to prescribe thalidomide (which causes birth defects) for morning sickness, or phen-phen (which causes heart problems) for weight loss, that would be unethical malpractice; their risks outweigh their benefits.

John Lilburne. John Lilburne (1614 – 29 August 1657), also known as Freeborn John, was an English political Leveller before, during and after the English Civil Wars 1642–1650.

John Lilburne

He coined the term "freeborn rights", defining them as rights with which every human being is born, as opposed to rights bestowed by government or human law.[1] In his early life he was a Puritan, though towards the end of his life he became a Quaker. His works have been cited in opinions by the United States Supreme Court.[2] Early life[edit] John Lilburne was the son of Richard Lilburne, a landowner of estates at Thickley Punchardon and elsewhere in County Durham.[3] He was probably born in Sunderland,[4] but the exact date of his birth is unknown; there is some dispute as to whether he was born in 1613, 1614, or 1615.

His father Richard Lilburne was the last man in England to insist that he should be allowed to settle a legal dispute with a trial by combat. Unlicensed publishing[edit] "Freeborn John"[edit] Root and Branch petition. Petition present to English Parliament in 1640.

Why can’t we talk about the Great Barrington Declaration?

This is a petition started by three scientists on 4 October calling for governments to adopt a policy of ‘focused protection’ when it comes to Covid-19. They believe those most at risk should be offered protection — although it shouldn’t be mandatory — and those not at risk, which is pretty much everyone under 65 without an underlying health condition, should be encouraged to return to normal. In this way, the majority will get infected and then recover, gradually building up herd immunity, and that in turn will mean the elderly and the vulnerable no longer have to hide themselves away. According to these experts, this is the tried and tested way of managing the risk posed by a new infectious disease, dating back thousands of years. ‘Drill and kill’?

The walls are grey and virtually bare; on the whiteboard is a cartoon-style story about a pilot marooned on a desert island. At all times eyes are either down or focused on the school’s deputy head of English, Sarah Cullen. It’s as if there’s no need for any other visual stimulation, for she’s a one-woman whirlwind: the lesson is conducted at a frenetic pace; questions are rapid-fire and answered with an instant sea of hands.

Direct instruction works, says 50 years of research

Direct instruction (DI) was developed in the US in the 1960s and involves teachers using fast-paced, highly structured lessons. The principles of DI have since been applied to a number of formal programmes used in US and UK schools, such as DISTAR (Direct Instruction System for Teaching Arithmetic and Reading).

After many difficulties, he sends a message to William Duke of Normandy: the King of England has designated him as his heir to the throne. When the old king dies, Harold has himself crowned instead of the Duke of Normandy. Hearing this news, William decides to cross the Channel in 1066 to reclaim his throne… On a September night in 1066, several hundred ships set sail, with seven thousand men and about two thousand horses on board. Among the boats is the ducal ship given by the duchess Matilda: the Mora stands out with a lantern blessed by the Pope at the top of its mast.

SPFL & Scottish FA: Having no fans is 'political, rather than clinical' The delay in allowing fans to return to stadiums in Scotland is "political, rather than clinical", say two of the country's top football administrators. Scottish FA vice-president Mike Mulraney made the claim on BBC Radio Scotland - and was supported by SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster. Mulraney said it is "fair to ask the Scottish government to reconsider" its stance on playing in empty stadiums.

"I listen to the science and it does seem counter-intuitive," he said. "I think it is driven by science, but do you think that sitting one metre away from somebody eating in a restaurant has less risk than sitting two metres away from someone in a stadium with a mask on? " Doncaster will discuss the matter with sports minister Joe Fitzpatrick on Monday and said that "it often feels football does not get a fair rub of the green".

When I started teaching, back in the early years of the new millennium, Assessment for Learning was all the rage. It dominated most Inset days and CPD sessions for the first couple of years of my career and one message kept on being repeated: “Pupils need the opportunity to do something with the feedback you give them. " At this point in the murky and confused history of teaching, feedback only really meant marking, and the focus was on moving away from “flick and tick” and summative comments (“good”, “well done”, “try harder”, and of course the old cliche, “see me”) and towards the kind of actions that told the pupil how to improve the work. Sadly, we were still working in a system driven by summative assessment and targets, and so Assessment for Learning largely seemed to lead to comments like “To move from a level 4 to a level 5 you should…” or “Your target is a C so you need to…”.
