    G STAR RAM got a reaction from WhiteHorseRam in Assistant Manager   
    The name I have been told is Frank Lampard.
    Sounds completely unbelievable to me but the person who has told me, I do know has a good contact within the club.
    He has got things wrong before though and I really dont see this happening. 
    Just wanted to see if anyone else had heard anything. 
    If I had known LR had officially been appointed assistant manager I would not have even created this thread!

    Are you throwing terrorism so that you can try and morph this into something to do racism because the other labels you are using are clearly not working?
    I'm worried that you seem to think what the Government are doing is appropriate and proportionate. 
    Answer me this simple question - is it right for the Government to allow people to go to work under the guise of it being 'covid secure' but not allow people to carry out any leisure activities or even see their own family because it is too dangerous. Think very clearly about what I have just said there before answering.
    I don't think my relationship with this Government as you call it is strange. If they something good I praise them, if they do something bad I criticise them. Its called being objective.
    I find your relationship with them strange though. 4 years of telling us they are liars and only out for personal gain, now we must obey everything they say and anyone questioning personal gain is labelled a conspiracy theorist, would you not agree your shift has been quite dramatic?

    So if you can go to a covid secure workplace why can you not go to a covid secure shop, restaurant or football ground?

    @ariotofmyown @BIllyD laughing emojis to this post but I'm wondering which parts you would dispute. 
    My mum is in her 60s, worked in a supermarket, worked throughout the pandemic. She somehow has been coaxed into the belief that it was safe for her to be in a shop all day but its not safe for her to see her grandchildren who have not seen anyone else for nearly 3 months.
    I'll ask the question again, do you think that the politicians calling for extended lockdowns would be doing so if they were having to take a 20% paycut?

    There can be no argument that lockdowns work to be fair.
    If people don't leave their houses then there is no way that the virus can be transmitted.
    But as you say, without vaccines, it would be stupid to say lets lockdown forever because it works.

    You're giving the impression that you believe going out when you could potentially spread a virus that kills people is selfish. Apologies if I have misinterpreted.
  8. Haha
    G STAR RAM got a reaction from Archied in Coronavirus   
    Yes, just go to work where you could potentially get the virus but don't see anyone that you risk spreading it to!
    Its quite simple and logical advice, think its just your paranoia kicking in!

    Ive never seen him accuse of some sort of hidden agenda.
    My take on @Archiedposts are that the Government, and numerous posters on here, are happy to advocate very draconian measures because it has the square root of sweet fa impact on their lives.
    Do you think politicans would be clambering to extend lockdowns if it meant a 20% paycut for them?
    You may find that hysterical but maybe that is because you also fit into the category, I don't know your personal circumstamces.
    Personally, I have a huge amount of sympathy for anyone that has to go to work every day to support their family, only to be told its unsafe to meet other members of their family in a park, just doesnt sit well with me.

    I'm not sure that there have been many arguments that have been well and truly beaten on this thread.
    I think the only 2 conclusively beaten are:-
    1 - Covid-19 is no more deadly tham seasonal flu
    2 - The Government handled the pandemic in a competent way (although the vaccine rollout has been a slight redeeming feature)

    Do you not know how samples, confidence levels and confidence intervals work? These have already been discussed.

    I cant see the logic. 
    Why is the infection rate the all important figure all of a sudden?
    Protect the NHS and save lives was the modus operandi.
    If only 0.004% (or whatever the figure is) get seriously ill following vaccination, and the group of people that were making up 88% (or whatever the figure is) of hospitalizations, it shouldn't matter if the R rate is 1 or 101.
    For the people that are still worried, take your own precautions.

    Nope, I think it has gone completely over your head and once again you are attempting to deflect from the facts.
    Whilst '9%' of cases may be severe only 0.004% of people are catching it after being fully vaccinated with the pfizer jab.  100% of people could develop a severe case of covid but it would still only be a maximum of 0.004% of those vaccinated.
    Facts from Israels Health Ministry;
    vaccinated 715,425
    caught covid 317
    hospitalized 16
    If you can get 9% severe cases from that you may need to change the batteries in your calculator.

    Bingo. Sorry for everyone else who got caught up in the only reason I posted about Florida and California. 
    Albert is amazing and constructing and twisting his arguments. But the more he writes, the more it unravels. 
    Politically motivated imo. Nothing else, nothing more.

    You claimed it was exactly 100%... you keep emphasising that point. Presented with other data, you're now claiming you've said otherwise all along... cool. 
    So, actually fact checking is 'unnecessary pedantry'. Cool. 
    I didn't prove it was wrong by '0.1%', his claim was that it was actually 100%, while my point was that it wasn't and is a bit pointless to claim it as such, and that we also need to consider people that haven't been vaccinated. @maxjam just outright ignored the latter and doubled down on the former. 
    Also, 7 severe cases out of 0.1% of 81k is about 9% of cases being serious infections. So while overall the protection the vaccine gives appears to be excellent, it is unhelpful to suggest 100% protection against serious disease and death, when out of the cases in the sample the rate of serious disease is still quite large. That kind of fraction still supports the idea that it should be staged reopening, assuring that the R number remains below 1. That should be very achievable given the numbers we've seen. 
    Got to be honest, if you think that's how confidence intervals work, you're not an expert in the concept. You need samples of the event occurring to determine one, at least in the usual way, and by definition there were zero in the set, hence one was unable to be calculated, which was the whole point. You've managed to confuse number of people with that however. You can state a confidence interval in terms of maximum likelihood based on the lack of events in a sense. Here, that would be about 1 in 5500 as the upper limit for 95%.

    I dont want to be talking about potential when we spend £3m/£4m on an international player.
    Very disappointing. Works hard and carries the ball well really shouldn't be what we should be saying about a winger.
    Very weak, gives the ball away too much, poor decision making and very little end product. 
    I have no doubt that if he was English he would be getting absolutely slated.
    Hope he comes good but seen very little so far to suggest that he will.

    This in and of itself is an interesting tactic, you're planning on the notion of 'well, they must feel they're always right'. 
    Honestly, I'm not, and I've made errors on here many times, and admitted those errors. You're confusing me actually backing my position, and not accepting random sniping without evidence or even basic logic, with me not accepting that other views could also be true. There are plenty of ways to view the World, but you don't just accept poor arguments because they exist. If you feel you actually have an argument to make, make it, and accept when you lack evidence that people may call you out on that.
