Not listening to scientific evidence costs lives.

@fribbledom The Season 3 opener with Juliet is pretty good too (🎵Downtown), but yes, Season 2’s opening is right down there with the best.

Seriously low supplies of tonic water (as in gin & tonic) at my local supermarket.

Why concept of "delivery slots" still active during a lockdown while everybody is at home.

Etailers, You just need good stock management and delivery date prediction based on your delivery capacities. The slot idea is a UX fail

Its already a week too late. Implementation is key &where it usually fails badly. The centre HAS to work with ALL state govts to adapt schemes according to needs, &give them allocated funds to deliver. And public audits are a MUST. #IndiaawaitsCovidaid

TIL:

The word quarantine comes from quarantena, meaning "forty days", designating the period that all ships were required to be isolated before passengers and crew could go ashore during the Black Death plague epidemic.

It followed the trentino, a thirty-day isolation period.

@fahrni I’m planning to work from home unless absolutely essential as well.

People in Costco buying toilet paper like crazy (SE England). I think some folk have confused the Coronavirus with Cholera.

Currently watching on Amazon Prime Video: Canadian police drama “19-2”. The second season opener is riveting (but very sad).

Given the history between Bezos and Trump, Audible’s “leave the fiction to us” ad campaign is very... interesting.

EXCLUSIVE: "It was the intelligence coup of the century."

The CIA secretly owned a Swiss company that sold rigged encryption systems to other governments for half a century.

The Post obtained classified files tracing the entire operation.

I had a chance to see Little Women at the cinema. Greta Gerwig follows up Lady Bird with a fantastic adaptation that, I believe, enhances the original material. Great writing and directing. And phenomenal performances from Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh.

Interestingly the theatre was about 90% women.

Studio Ghibli’s catalogue is coming to Netflix outside the US/Canada (and Japan) from February onwards. I’m really excited about this! 🎉

Dates for specific movies here: bit.ly/36blobD

Messiah on Netflix - eps 1-3 have been quite interesting so far.
