France gets added to the quarantine list for 4am Saturday

The great race to the ports begins, tents will be collapsed in the dark as  000’s of of families with open ferry / tunnel tickets race to be over the channel in time. Like the Beaujolais run but less posh Smiley

Nigel Farage will be there finding an angle to get himself on tv.

Interesting to watch people on holiday moaning about the Government decision.

They act too slowly and get criticised.

They act too quickly and get criticised.

Everyone knows we are in the middle of a global pandemic - if people choose to go abroad then accept the risks in the current climate or don’t go.

They will want compensation next ffs.

Draft order and team listings are as follows.

MattyHollis has been inactive on the forum since November 2019, and those posts at the time were with regard to his inactivity in the league.  The team was essentially abandoned last season, and it caused some issues within the league, so it's in the best interests of the league that a new manager takes over for this season.

We exhausted the original waiting list last season, so next in line is Stevef31, who's a mate of bobby1's and who showed interest in the DLeague a while back.  Next in line for any vacant spots would be bergeroo.  Apologies to him for not being able to accommodate him straight away.

I'll send an invite to our new guy via Yahoo.  He's already posted on the thread, I believe, but I don't think he's yet seen the team he's about to adopt.

The entry fee will remain at £20, and I'll send bank details to everyone.  Given the short-notice to the draft starting on Monday, I'm relaxed about receiving this after it has started.  I'll get more time to dig around the rosters over the weekend and confirm the number of drops required from rosters, etc to get the season to properly start.  If you can plan ahead as to who you want to drop to get to 30 initially, that will help me, but don't forget that you'll then need to drop someone for every pick you make in the draft (I don't need details of these yet, as we'll sort out the draft on-site as we go along).

2019 Finish   Team   Manager   Draft Order
7   #freejoshgordon   ChipRich/LeKnave   1
8   Tifosi BlackHearts   sicilian   2
9   Vegas Venoms   Karma Dope   3
10   Was MattyHollis   New Manager - Stevef31   4
5   Kareemmadeahuntofit   ForthThistle   5
6   IronRunAllOverUrSide   Ironside   6
3   ArkansasGravediggers   Tal   7
4   My Tight End Ertz   Sheriff Fatman   8
2   House Tyrell   TightEnd   9
1   The Shaggy Defence   bobby1   10

I had an issue with some reward that I was meant to get and did not - I was not a happy bunny and went back saying so - anyway  got kicked up the support chain of command .

They kind of admitted it was a misunderstanding and gave me the reward - what was interesting was the response times

2 days to tell me they had credited the reward

when I emailed them back to say there was nothing there less than 1 hour for them to say tough they had taken it back

2 days to reply saying sorry reward was back in my account

So with a bit of perseverance and getting the right support person  we ended up a winner or rather a loser those $25 spins sure go fast

Are we not booking bets for Tikay any more? Haven't seen one taken for ages, maybe I missed an announcement or something?

One bet I like for the upcoming Spanish GP is Daniil Kvyat to score points at 9/4. Daniil has scored points four times in five F1 appearances at this circuit, it really seems to suit his style. The Barcelona circuit is the one on the calendar where car performance has the biggest influence on results, and Alpha Tauri are the 7th quickest team right now which acts as a deterrent to the bet. However, the combination of Daniil's confidence combined with the high price of 9/4 makes this a viable spot for me. Suggest 10 points.

I think Tikay and Tighty are just a bit busy.   People are still reading and putting bets on, so just continue as you are.   Maybe it will just pick up again some time when they are less busy?

Numerous times I see people shoving pre flop or on the flop AA v KK ,s8 v sets and it always seems that the person who is ahead uses the cashing out facility -

why go all in to then cash out? The only peeps that I can see that benefit from cashing out is Pokerstars.

I always let the cards run and have never used the cash out facility am I losing +ev for not using the facility

  If you are in hospital 29 days after testing positive for Covid then there seems a pretty good chance your death was Covid related.  ...

They are recording all deaths that have COVID19 on the death certificate.

They're also recording the excess mortality rate.

The deaths in hospital after 28 days is pretty much just a statistical tool to get consistency.

When deaths in hospital have been used as the official rate for previous epidemics nobody has batted an eyelid; it's only because it's now affecting us that anybody cares.

This might lead to an international discussion about standardised measurements, but for planning I would have thought as much data as possible and consistency with presenting it are probably the most important things.

In the insurance world I don't think the PRA would give us a bye from producing a more accurate number just because it was inconsistent with some smaller number from some previous year.   It just seems an unprofessional thing to do too.  Just report it as accurately as you can.

You have two known errors.  A large error that meant you understated past deaths and a small error that meant you overstated some past deaths.  If you are correcting your number for past deaths correcting the first seems more important and is something that has more urgency.   It wouldn't really bother me if they hadn't changed it, it is the big song and dance they made of discovering the second error; and then the urgent need to correct it after been happy to ignore the bigger error that would have made them look worse.  That is what grates. 

If you are correcting future errors then sure, you can make the change to future reporting.  But even then you should be aware of the potential understatement going forward.

I'd hope the people doing the future planning are aware of the weekness in their modelling, then maybe it doesn't matter so much.  If the right people are aware the real number is about 60k and not about 40k then guess we will be fine.

No time at the moment, because Uncle Dana has been keeping me busy when I'm no working, or back in the gym.

Might save them all for when I head to Turkey in a couple weeks Smiley
