Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge A fired Facebook data scientist has written a 6,600-word memo condemning the company for ignoring evidence the platform was wielded to sway public opinion and manipulate elections around the world, according to a report from BuzzFeed News, which obtained a copy of the memo. The data scientist, Sophie Zhang, was fired earlier this month and posted the memo on her final day, the report reads. Zhang implies she was fired after bringing her concerns to upper management and being told to stop focusing on issues beyond the scope of her role, which involved analyzing the platform to identity “coordinated inauthentic behavior,” Facebook’s phrase for bot networks and other malicious activity with ulterior motives like influencing election...

The UK needs to act now to stop the spike in coronavirus cases getting out of control, according to a scientist who advises the government.Peter Openshaw, professor of experimental medicine at Imperial College London, said a “trickle” of cases could turn into a “cascade” if people do not follow the so-called rule of six.From Monday, people will not be allowed to meet up in groups larger than six unless they all live together or are in the same support bubble.Openshaw, who sits on the government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) said people need to adhere to the rules, telling Sky’s Sophy Ridge On Sunday: “Everyone is in agreement that we really need to act very quickly now in order to prevent this from growing exponentially.“We must act fast because it’s so much harder to get this sort of thing under control if you delay even a few days (it) is potentially going to be quite dangerous at this particular moment.”When asked if he agreed with the idea that the UK was “losing control” of the virus, he added: “It’s a bit like water seeping through a dam, it starts as a trickle and if you don’t do something about it it can turn into a real cascade.” Openshaw did raise hopes that a vaccine could pass successful trials by Christmas, having been “a bit pessimistic a few months ago”.Such a result would mean effective vaccines are available by winter 2021.He said: “I do feel that on the basis of what we know about the immune system that it’s likely that these immune responses that are being induced by these vaccines may be protective for at least a few months, possibly even years, we just don’t know yet, it’s early days.“I do think that we will probably have a positive results of at least one of these vaccine trials, probably more than that, by Christmas and that means that with rapid scaling up we might have vaccination programmes that can roll out to some parts of the world in the next nine months.“Before the winter of 21/22 I hope that we should have vaccines that are effective.”Related...

Muslim NHS workers have told HuffPost UK how Islamophobia is rife in the organisation, with their own colleagues making disgraceful comments and denying them opportunities to progress or even socialise.We teamed up with the British Islamic Medical Association (BIMA) for a flagship, in-depth survey of more than 100 Muslim health workers – one of the most significant of its kind.A shocking 81% revealed they had experienced Islamophobia or racism within the NHS, 69% felt it had got worse during their time at the organisation and more than half – 57% – felt Islamophobia had held them back in their career progression within the NHS.Many Muslims voiced a culture of “swallow it up” in the NHS, leaving people fearful of reporting Islamophobia in case of repercussions for their job or career progression.One Muslim female consultant said she felt that “you may as well flush your medical degree down the toilet” rather than reporting Islamophobia from a colleague or manager. She described the NHS as a “family which will close ranks to protect their own against those perceived as outsiders”.Being “visibly Muslim”, such as wearing a hijab or having a long beard, made it more likely for Muslim NHS workers to face Islamophobia. One woman said she stopped wearing the hijab as it was “like wearing a sign saying ‘kick me’.”Meanwhile, alcohol – forbidden in Islam – has been described as a “social glue” in the NHS, with many Muslims believing they have missed out on career and bonding opportunities because socialising outside work revolves around drink.And while there are many incidents of outright bullying and harassment, it is the subtle, more difficult to prove Islamophobia within the NHS that is the “most dangerous discrimination”, say Muslim healthcare workers.A staggering 43% admitted they had considered leaving the NHS because of Islamophobia.Our survey conducted in conjunction with BIMA had 133 respondents from all over the country working in various NHS roles including consultants, surgeons, GPs, pharmacists and medical students.One Muslim NHS worker said: “I think Islamophobia has increased in society at large and this is reflected in the NHS.”Dr Salman Waqar, general secretary at BIMA, told HuffPost UK: “It reflects a wider societal unease about religion and the way spirituality and belief is seen as a problem.“Some Muslims will not make a fuss because of fear of retribution. But making small compromises causes turbulence and unease internally.“This creates a sense of not belonging for Muslims in the NHS and biological weathering. They feel they have to put on their uniform, turn up for work and justify their existence to colleagues.”Dr Hina J Shahid, chair of the Muslim Doctors Association, said: “We see people celebrating diversity in all its forms in the NHS – but people generally don’t want to talk about religion. It is like a taboo subject.“Belonging to a religious group is almost seen as going against the scientific nature of being a doctor.”Hijabs“In the NHS, you realise there’s something about the hijab that really riles people,” says Kiran Rahim, a paediatric registrar in London. “People make assumptions about you. When people first see me, they presume I don’t speak English, or I have an accent.”She says judgements are made about women in hijabs and she is asked questions by colleagues like: “Does your husband make you wear that?” and “Do you wear your hijab when you shower?”“I would expect people I work with to be more clued up. I am as British as they come, but my religion is part of my identity.”Muslim women told HuffPost UK they were often perceived to be less educated due to wearing headscarves, and received backhanded compliments such as surprise at how well they spoke English – even when they were born and raised in the UK.Zineb Mehbali, 32, a registrar in obstetrics and gynaecology, believes a culture exists within the NHS where people are discriminated against for being different. She wears a hijab and experienced overt Islamophobia at one hospital when her locker was vandalised and had the word “hijab” scrawled across it. “I’m quite resilient, but there have been situations where I’ve cried at work,” she said. “When my locker was vandalised for being Muslim, it made me feel vulnerable but also very hurt as I knew a colleague had done that.”Many Muslim women told HuffPost Islamophobic attitudes to the hijab are hidden behind infection control. Even when they’ve been given permission to wear hijabs in theatre and wash them at the same temperatures as theatre caps, they are persistently challenged.Mehbali was once shouted at by a member of operating staff who described her as “a hazard to patient safety”. “She was really aggressive and intimidating and made me feel incredibly humiliated.” On another occasion, Mehbali was working on a labour ward wearing a clean hijab and scrubs when it emerged a CQC inspection was going to take place. A boss told her they would have to hide her away. “It made me feel like a blot on the landscape and was completely unacceptable.”Zineb admits her job in the NHS would be a lot easier if she didn’t wear a headscarf. “I feel I’ve had to work a lot harder, especially as I’ve moved up the ranks.“When you become a registrar or consultant, I feel it’s harder if you wear a headscarf. People have to take notice of you as their colleague.”Ramsha Hanif, 27, a pharmacist in Derbyshire, doesn’t ordinarily wear a headscarf but was shaken by a former manager’s reaction when he saw a photo of her wearing one.“He really stared at my driving licence photo then told me I looked scary,” Hanif said.“I thought he meant I had a stern expression. But after a while, he said: ‘It’s that thing,’ and told me the headscarf made me look scary.“I was shocked as no one had ever said anything like that before.”The manager then asked Hanif about the application she was filling in, asking: “It’s not to join ISIS is it?”Ramsha reported the issue. The manager began calling in sick, then officially retired, so no action was taken.Ramsha said: “What hurt most was his whole opinion of me changed from seeing one picture of me wearing a headscarf.”A female A&E doctor told HuffPost UK she wore a hijab for many years. She said that, while non-practising Muslims who went out drinking were seen as “one of the gang”, those considered “too orthodox or religious” were viewed as a problem.At one hospital, a Hindu colleague warned her consultants and registrars were saying Islamophobic things behind her back. But he was unwilling to go on record for fear of repercussions. “It was not about being brown – it was Islamophobic,” she said. I’ve gone as far as saying I’m agnostic and am from the Indian subcontinent. If I reveal my identity as Muslim or Pakistani, I know I’ll be treated differently.The A&E doctor revealed she has become less open about her faith throughout her career and no longer wears a hijab or tells people she is Muslim. “I’ve gone as far as saying I’m agnostic and am from the Indian subcontinent,” she admitted. “If I reveal my identity as Muslim or Pakistani, I know I’ll be treated differently.“There are Islamophobes within the NHS who are intelligent enough to hide their hatred of Muslims under other guises such as picking on a doctor’s professionalism.“As a Muslim, you have to work twice as hard and never make any mistakes as you know they’ll be magnified.” People now openly make Islamophobic remarks in front of her, not realising she is a Muslim. “It’s really opened my eyes to the horrifying Islamophobia that exists in the NHS,” she said.But she added: “Wearing a hijab in the NHS was like wearing a sign saying ‘kick me’,” she said. “I just don’t have room in my life for that kind of stress.”Sabeeta Farooqi, 36, a trainee GP in Leeds, who is from Pakistan, recalls a sign on a board while she was taking a medical exam allowing her to practice in this country that read: “If you wear a face covering, it’s very unlikely any NHS employer will give you a job.”Khadija, 21, a medical student in Bristol, was told by her mentor, a Muslim GP, that if she wanted to get far in medicine, she really needed to remove her hijab. “I was shocked,” said Khadija. “She was trying to warn me of the difficulties that lay ahead. But I didn’t want to feel forced to choose between my religious and cultural identity and my career aspirations.“I’m not going to stop wearing the hijab because other people have a problem with it. That’s their issue, not mine.”Even at this early stage of her medical career, Khadija has witnessed the impact Islamophobia has. “Unfortunately, I know a couple of medical students who have been badly affected by Islamophobia,” she said. “One has left the course and completely foregone a career in medicine. The other has removed the hijab, stopped practising her religion and lost contact with her family.”I’m not going to stop wearing the hijab because other people have a problem with it. That’s their issue, not mine.Khadija, a medical student in BristolShahid has been researching the effects of Islamophobia on Muslim doctors and says women are at greater risk of discrimination.“If Muslim women wear a headscarf, they stand out as being different and are more likely to feel discriminated,” she said.“Many have reported feeling stressed, anxious and depressed. This affects their future choices. If they have a negative experience in a hospital setting, they’re more likely to choose a non-hospital setting or even leave the NHS.” ‘Just banter’ – terrorists, bombs and baconSometimes Islamophobia in the NHS is subtle and discreet and hidden under the guise of “banter”, many Muslims told HuffPost UK.When Mahdiyah Bandali, now a graduate paramedic in Birmingham, first began working for the ambulance service, she noticed the lack of diversity and realised she was the only hijab-wearing woman. “The first time I walked into an ambulance station, there was an attitude of: ‘What are you doing here?’ – I stuck out like a sore thumb.”Colleagues would ask: “Why do you wear that?”, “Do men control your life?” or even: “Will you get married off after you graduate and not work?”During Ramadan at one ambulance placement, Mahdiyah recalls colleagues eating bacon sandwiches in front of her while taunting her: “Are we breaking your fast?” or urging: “Go on, eat a piece of bacon.”Madiyah would be greeted jokingly when entering an ambulance station with: “Here she comes! What kind of bomb have you got for us today?”She said: “While I laugh it off, I can see how other people might find it offensive or how it could lead to them leaving the NHS. At the end of the day, it’s a type of bullying.”One hospital doctor told how he was carrying a lot of bleepers when a colleague said: “You look like a suicide bomber.”Many Muslims say a lot of Islamophobia goes under the radar. “It wouldn’t be admissible in a tribunal as it’s subtle undermining which happens on a daily basis,” said one doctor. “There is plenty of racism affecting people from all BAME backgrounds, but there is a specific anti-Muslim agenda among some NHS colleagues.”One hospital doctor told how he was carrying a lot of bleepers when a colleague said: “You look like a suicide bomber.”Many Muslims in the NHS keep quiet when it comes to reporting Islamophobia, for fear of repercussions or impacting career progression. Paediatric registrar Kiran Rahim said: “Medicine is very hierarchical and the people you complain to may also be the ones responsible for your progress. So many Muslims keep the peace and don’t feel empowered to pursue discrimination further.”One worker said in the survey: “The NHS pays lip service to diversity and racism but in reality has no interest in addressing these problems genuinely and just wants to appear to be doing the right thing.”Prayers “Praying for a practising Muslim is like food and water,” says Emma Wiley, a microbiology consultant in London. “It is a necessity, something they need to do.”But many Muslims face barriers to praying at work in the NHS. Emma, 38, was told she couldn’t pray in an empty office and had to use the main prayer room.“When you’re a busy medic, time is very poor. Walking to another place takes time,” she said. “Not allowing me to use this empty room for five minutes to pray seemed unnecessarily obstructive.” On another occasion, Emma was praying in a cloakroom when a laboratory scientist “with his face full of rage” told her to find an alternative place to pray.One Muslim NHS worker revealed he wasn’t allowed to go to the prayer room at his hospital as it would “take too much time to walk there”. He also wasn’t allowed time off during Ramadan or allowed to operate while fasting.Another doctor described how he was constantly bleeped during prayer time and asked: “Doesn’t your God know you have jobs to do?”Medical student Usman, 25, who lives in Glasgow, told HuffPost UK he was given permission to be regularly late to class to attend Friday prayers – yet would be hauled up and asked why he was late almost every week.“I feel a lot of it stems from a lack of understanding,” he said. “Many people in the NHS – particularly consultants who supervise students – believe medicine comes first and everything else second.“They cannot understand why anyone would put their religion before their medical classes.”Alcohol and career progressionClimbing the ladder in the NHS often occurs through social cohesion, which involves drinking in pubs, several respondents said. One explained: “Alcohol is a social lubricant and many Muslims are left out of career progression as we avoid places associated with the sale and consumption of alcohol.”A female Muslim doctor said she was bullied mercilessly by two other doctors after she declined to sit at a table where alcohol was served. “They began picking on me. Their biggest issue was the fact I didn’t drink.“It was horrendous. They refused to teach me, and spread rumours about me. One told me I wasn’t cut out to be a doctor and to give up.“They were very devious and made me feel it was all in my head. It was like gaslighting.”A Muslim doctor in emergency medicine heard a fellow trainee frequently bragging about opportunities he’d gained while drinking in the pub with a consultant.Waqar from BIMA said: “Alcohol is a huge part of British culture, but for the majority of Muslims it’s not permissible. When it comes to career progression, that can be difficult.“A lot of career progression and mentoring in the NHS takes place outside the work environment. Awards events often happen in places where alcohol is served.“If you’re a person who feels uncomfortable being at a table with alcohol, you’ll feel conflicted. Some might not go, so miss out.”It’s not just alcohol that leads to Muslims in the NHS missing out on progression. Mehbali says, when she was training, she wasn’t given the same opportunities as white colleagues.“There were times at training opportunities when white people more junior than me were allowed to operate and I wasn’t.“Even though I was competent and knew how to do the procedure, I wasn’t allowed to do the things my peers were doing. “I spent eight months with a particular consultant before I was allowed to operate, while others were allowed to straight away. I feel it was because I am visibly Muslim with a hijab.“It’s very disheartening to feel sidelined. When you’re learning practical skills, you need training opportunities or you’ll fall behind.”One male Muslim doctor said: “The career progression of Muslims in the NHS is far more stunted than their white counterparts. The hurdles are more difficult and challenging.”Why is there Islamophobia in the NHS?The stark lack of Muslims in leadership roles within the NHS has been cited as one of the reasons behind Islamophobia affecting the organisation.“Even if you get some who are Muslim or BAME, they’ve often had to neglect the cultural and religious aspects of their identity to get to their position,” says medical student Khadija, who also believes negativeportrayals of Muslims in society and media exacerbate Islamophobia. “Until the management within the NHS is reflective of its workforces, it’s going to be incredibly difficult to root out and address Islamophobia,” said one Muslim hospital registrar.“I would argue the reason there’s so much Islamophobia in the NHS is because Muslims are repressed from leadership roles and find it more difficult to climb the ladder.“So it becomes a vicious circle – they can’t support juniors facing the same issues.”But he added: “There are some very supportive and open minded line managers. It’s not a problem with everyone.”YingFei Heliot, a lecturer in organisational behaviour at Surrey Business School, published a report on religious identity and working in the NHS. She found Muslims faced the worst discrimination of any group.“Everyone recognises Islamophobia exists, but they don’t want to talk about it because it’s so sensitive,” she said.Dr Tarek Younis, researcher and psychologist at Middlesex University, researches Islamophobia. His latest publication is on the issue within the NHS.“When people think about Islamophobia, they focus on hate crimes,” he said. “But by doing this, they miss the wood for the trees.“We neglect how certain policies and political rhetoric formulates the bedrock of how racial discrimination takes place.”He says it’s important to realise NHS professionals are just people – and as such can hold prejudices. “The Brexit campaign succeeded on a lot of radicalised logic. A lot of middle-class and healthcare workers voted for it.“We know the healthcare setting is not a place where people just drop all their prejudices when they enter, be that patients or healthcare staff.“What is important is to recognise what’s not being done about it.”We know the healthcare setting is not a place where people just drop all their prejudices when they enter, be that patients or healthcare staff.Dr Tarek Younis, researcher and psychologist at Middlesex UniversityMore crucial, says Waqar, is ensuring the board understands the importance of an organisation where people can “bring their whole selves to work”.“This is a systemic issue and there’s no simple fix.” she said. “The solution isn’t just putting staff members on a course. It will take years to see a cultural shift.“Sometimes, Islamophobia stems from ignorance and doesn’t come from a bad place. But there are more serious incidents which come from a pernicious place as people within the NHS are believing the anti-Muslim narrative.”Dr Habib Naqvi from NHS England said: “While this survey represents only a snapshot of the 40,000 Muslim colleagues who work in the NHS, it is unacceptable for anyone to be unsafe or to be treated unfairly, either because of their religious belief or any other protected characteristic.“The NHS belongs to us all, and as part of the NHS People Plan, NHS employers are committed to increasing Black, Asian and minority ethnic representation across their leadership teams.”Tomorrow on HuffPost UK: How Muslim medics face Islamophobia from their own patients.Related...

You’re reading The Waugh Zone, our daily politics briefing. Sign up now to get it by email in the evening.Let’s talk about Six, babyAs a fun-loving, crowd-pleasing, bon viveur kinda guy, Boris Johnson is rarely convincing when he has to do ‘serious’. Adopting a stern tone and telling the British public what they may not want to hear does not come naturally. But having suggested just a few weeks ago that the Covid crisis will be all over by Christmas, today he was forced to rain on his own charade.The PM certainly surpassed himself in the irony stakes. As he spelled out that his new rules will mean some grandparents will not be allowed to see their grandchildren, he uttered this immortal line as justification: “People who think they can take responsibility for their own health and take their own risk are, I’m afraid, misunderstanding the situation.” Classic Dom, you could call it.‌Just as he didn’t blame Dominic Cummings for breaking the rules (three times don’t forget), he was keen to stress today he wasn’t having a go at the great British public. “With the best will in the world people have not, I’m afraid, been totally following the guidelines,” he said. “I certainly don’t want to blame people but now is the time for us to focus, to concentrate and to enforce the rule of six.”Of course, he didn’t blame himself either, but there was a smidgeon of an admission that the government was partly responsible for the shocking rise in cases among young people. “I know that, over time, the rules have become quite complicated and confusing,” he said. It certainly seems as though socialising at home and abroad (and importing it) has driven the spike that has so worried many in Whitehall.Yet as the PM unveiled his “rule of six”, the extent of that confusion was laid bare. The new legally backed rule replaces the current guidance that allows two households to meet indoors. From Monday, six people from six different households can mix. But how many people knew that was not allowed already? Loads of millennials and youngsters, judging from social media.As a result, if you’re a singleton today’s new rule is actually a relaxation, not a tightening, of your social restrictions. The downside, and Johnson’s face told that story, is larger family groupings will not be allowed. In another irony for a PM who hates ‘nanny statedom’, he today criminalised any Christmas dinner party of more than six people. And as only one ‘support bubble’ is allowed, families will have to choose which grandparent or in-law is allowed across the threshold. Not quite a John Lewis ad, is it?Never wanting to portray himself as a killjoy (probably the worst insult Johnson could think of for his enemies), he was keen to say today’s moves were “not a second national lockdown”. But that’s precisely what they were: the rule of six applies across the whole country and has real legal force to allow the police and a new army of hi-vis ‘Covid-secure marshalls’ to take action. A new map showed how widespread the spike in cases was too.‌But Johnson was still dreaming of a nice Christmas, courtesy of his hopes for a “moonshot” plan for instant, daily home testing for everyone, giving those who test negative a “laissez passer” or “freedom pass” (once a London Mayor, always a London Mayor) to go to work, the theatre, sports.Within seconds however, both chief medical officer Chris Whitty and chief scientist Patrick Vallance poured buckets of ice cold caution over this tempting mirage. Vallance said it would be “completely wrong to assume” that mass saliva testing would be viable. The PM’s moonshot plan felt as real and tangible as his deceased ‘fantasy island’ scheme for a new London airport in the Thames estuary.‌Whitty wanted to plan on the basis of grounded reality, basing his assumptions on not getting a vaccine, let alone some ‘moonshot’ testing regime. On the day Keir Starmer raised the continuing laboratory problems with the public failing to get tests near their homes, Whitty also said “those constraints are not just going to magically disappear”. Most candid of all, he made clear the new rules would be around for months, and probably until the spring.A snap poll tonight from YouGov showed 77% of Brits in favour of tightening social restrictions on big groups. The public like clear, simple messaging as long as their prime minister and other people in power stick to it too.Let’s hope for all our sakes that the new rules work, and are adhered to. It’s even possible they could help people get back to the office (meeting five workmates can lunch together or drink in the pub after work now). And there’s still a chance a winter nightmare could be avoided, but only if test and trace gets much, much better.But perhaps it’s time for a new rule for the PM too: stop selling the public fool’s gold of best case scenarios and get on instead with the unglamorous but vital drudgery of delivery.Quote Of The Day“It breaks my heart to have to insist on these restrictions upon individuals, upon families, grandparents.”Boris JohnsonWednesday Cheat SheetA further 2,659 people tested positive for Covid in the UK, up on yesterday.Boris Johnson defended his new Internal Markets Bill and its clear provision to break international law, saying it was designed to stop “extreme or irrational” interpretations of the Northern Ireland protocol he signed earlier this year.Sir John Major warned that breaking treaties would mean the UK would lose its reputation for honouring its promises and “we will have lost something beyond price that may never be regained”.Matt Hancock blamed the public for “inappropriate” booking of tests, stressing only those with symptoms should apply for them.Jonathan Bartley and Sian Berry were re-elected as co-leaders of the Green Party.What I’m Reading5 Wild New Trump Revelations In Bob Woodward’s Book - New York MagazineGot A Tip?Send tips, stories, quotes, pics, plugs or gossip to waugh.zone[email protected] Subscribe To Commons PeopleEach week, the HuffPost UK Politics team unpack the biggest stories from Westminster and beyond.

Boris Johnson has been forced to tear up his plan to get Britain back to “normal” by Christmas and instead impose tough new Covid restrictions after a dramatic spike in the virus among the under-30s.The prime minister appeared alongside chief medical officer Chris Whitty and chief scientist Patrick Vallance for a live No.10 TV briefing after figures showed coronavirus infections among young people are now rising rapidly and are double the national average.Asked directly if Christmas was “cancelled” for many families that wanted to get together, Johnson said it “breaks my heart” but new curbs were needed.From Monday, a new “rule of six” will be introduced in law, with arrests and fines for the first time for those who gather in larger groups.A three-month review will take place in early December, but it is unlikely rules will be relaxed and they may be tightened further.Among a raft of measures are:New police powers to break up house parties of more than six people, with neighbours actively encouraged to inform on any rule breaches;Pubs and restaurants forced by law to keep registers of all customers, with 10pm curfews in areas of high Covid prevalence;Forcing airlines to require passengers to fill in locator forms before they flyMore Border Force police spot checks of people who arrive from abroad;A much more limited return of fans to Premier League football matches and other live stadium sport;An army of newly qualified and retired environmental health officers recruited to help councils police hospitality breaches.Two whole households will no longer able to meet if their numbers are greater than six.Only one support bubble will be allowed, so only one set of grandparents will be able to see their grandchildren.“It breaks my heart to insist on these restrictions upon individuals, families, grandparents,” he said.“This rule of six will of course throw up difficult cases, for example two whole households will no longer be able to meet if they would together exceed the limit of six people and I’m sorry about that, and I wish that we did not have to take this step.“But as your Prime Minister, I must do what is necessary to stop the spread of the virus and to save lives.”Johnson admitted the rules to date had become too “complicated” and it was time to simplify the public health messages and to legally enforce them.The new crackdown is in stark contrast to the tone struck by the PM in July, when he suggested there would be a “significant return to normality” by Christmas.Crucially, new curbs are expected to be in place until next spring but with a three-month review in early December, government insiders warned.Whitty said: “The period between now and spring is going to be difficult. You shouldn’t just see this as a very short term thing.”The PM said: “I’m still hopeful that in many ways we could be able to get some aspects of our lives back to normal by Christmas.” But he accepted that would not be possible without a “moonshot” plan to get mass, daily testing in place.The national Covid rate among all ages has in the past week risen from 12.5 to about 19.7 per 100,000 – just under the level at which the UK slaps quarantine curbs on other countries.But the detailed figures for young people are driving the rise, with the rate for 17- to 18-year-olds now at 48.1, for 19- to 21-year-olds 54.5, and 20- to 29-year-olds overall 41.6.The rise is not just down to extra testing, as the rate of people who test positive has trebled from 2.5% a couple of weeks ago to 6.1% among 17- to 18-year-olds, 5.1% among 19- to 21-year-olds and 3.5% among 20- to 29-year-olds.Regarding the six people rule, Johnson said: “This will apply in any setting, indoors or outdoors, at home or in the pub.“The ban will be set out in law and it will be enforced by the police – anyone breaking the rules risks being dispersed, fined and possibly arrested.“This single measure replaces both the existing ban on gatherings of more than 30 and the current guidance on allowing two households to meet indoors. Now you only need to remember the rule of six.”The PM revealed that he still wanted universities to go ahead with opening to students this autumn because they were crucial to “life chances” of young people.“My message to students is simple – please, for the sake of your education and your parents’ and your grandparents’ health: wash your hands, cover your face, make space, and don’t socially gather in groups of more than six, now and when term starts.”Related...

With the “Tenet” opening with substantial numbers all over the world, we can hope “No Time to Die” will also receive no hindrance in November and will be able to garner strong numbers at the box office. However, the expectation will be high and with its second trailer having dropped on September the 3rd, the spotlight is really on 007. The fifth and final film of the franchise will finally make Daniel Craig rest after years and years of physical strain that the 007 character brought in his life. That only time can tell, but the footage in the trailer does make us expect for an equally engaging thriller if not something better. His old friend Felix Leiter turns up and asks him to set foot on a mission to rescue a scientist who has been kidnapped. Fukunaga is known for directing Sin Nombre, Beasts of No Nation, and mega-hit HBO show True Detective.
In 1995, pioneering computer scientist Anita Borg challenged the tech community to a moonshot: equal representation of women in tech by 2020. Twenty-five years later, we’re still far from that goal. In 2018, fewer than 30% of the employees in tech’s biggest companies and 20% of faculty in university computer science departments were women. On Women’s Equality Day in 2020, it’s appropriate to revisit Borg’s moonshot challenge. Today, awareness of the gender diversity problem in tech has increased, and professional development programs have improved women’s skills and opportunities. But special programs and “fixing women” by improving their skills have not… This story continues at The Next Web

When a virus invades human body, the body can mobilize the defense network to eliminate the virus through multi-layered and progressive defense approaches.The physical barrier forms the first level of immunity.In addition, the surface of the trachea and bronchus is a layer of mucosa consisting of ciliated epithelial cells, mucus-secreting goblet cells, and immune cells.When the virus invades, cough and sputum help to expel the virus out of human body.Complements in the blood form the second level of immunity.When the virus enters the cell, the complement system is activated, producing two antiviral effects, one is that complement mediates holes in the surface of the infected cell and induces the death of the infected cell, as well as the virus; the second is that complement mediates macrophages to engulf the infected cells, thereby degrading the engulfed cells together with the virus inside the macrophages.A senior scientist from Creative Biolabs, a leading biologics company offering comprehensive one-stop services for Complement Therapeutics introduced that “complement C4 can neutralize some enveloped viruses and prevent them from entering cells.Complement components are mainly produced by the cells of the liver.Immune cells can be divided into two categories, one of which is called innate immune cells, including macrophages, dendritic cells, and natural killer cells, which form the fourth level of immunity.
Listen to our weekly podcast Am I Making You Uncomfortable? about women’s health, bodies and private lives. Available on Spotify, Apple, Audioboom and wherever you listen to your podcasts.Covid-19 pandemic has caused anxiety to sky-rocket, if internet searches are anything to go by. Panic attacks are an exaggeration of the body entering “fight or flight” mode – as a person tries to take in more oxygen, their breathing quickens and their body releases hormones like adrenaline which can cause the heart to beat faster and muscles to tense.A new study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, finds evidence of a record high in potential anxiety or panic attacks based on Google searches. Researchers analysed search queries that mentioned “panic attack” or “anxiety attack” emerging from the US between January 2004 and May 2020.These included queries like “am I having a panic attack?,” “signs of anxiety attack” or “anxiety attack symptoms”. After President Donald Trump first declared a national emergency in the US on March 13 this year, the team discovered anxiety related searches reached record highs.Dr Benjamin Althouse, a principal scientist at the Institute for Disease Modelling, which was involved in the study, says “searches for anxiety and panic attacks were the highest they’ve ever been in over 16 years of historical search data”. Searches tended to peak when national guidelines were rolled out in the US, the team found. The largest increase in queries occurred between March 16 and April 14, coinciding with the roll out of national social distancing guidelines.Google search insights for the UK suggest a similar trend, with searches for “panic attacks” and “anxiety attack symptoms” peaking in March and April respectively, HuffPost UK found.Psychotherapist and author Joshua Fletcher, who runs The Panic Room counselling service in Manchester, tells HuffPost UK he saw a spike in anxiety-related queries from clients as a result of Covid-19.Referrals tended to increase when lockdown measures were lifted, rather than enforced, he says. This, he believes, is because during the initial lockdown our lives were quite simple, but as the rules became blurred and a bit more confusing, people became more anxious as “they didn’t have the rigid guidelines to fall back on”.Related... Struggling With Panic Attacks? People Reveal The Techniques That Help Them Through In a typical week pre-lockdown he would get around five to 10 enquiries, but in April and May this rose to between 30 and 40 a week. The queries aren’t necessarily linked to the virus itself, says Fletcher, but as a result of the changes people are having to make in their personal lives to accommodate it.He uses the metaphor of a stress jug: “Every time we experience stress it goes into the jug – so that’s money, work, deadlines, relationship issues, past experiences, grief, debt, lack of sleep, not eating properly.” People experience panic attacks when that stress jug overflows, he says, because the brain misinterprets all the stress and thinks you’re in danger.  Your body goes into fight or flight – and the adrenaline kicks in. With the virus and subsequent lockdown, “so many people’s jugs have been filled up”, he says.How to tell if you’ve had a panic attackThere are various physical and mental symptoms of a panic attack, which you can find on the NHS website. Fletcher talks through three key parts to a panic attack. First of all, there’s the feeling of “terror from nowhere”, he says. All of a sudden you are scared for no real reason and can feel an overwhelming sense of dread that something awful is about to happen.Secondly, there’s the sensation – you can’t catch your breath, there’s a sense of unreality and feeling detached from yourself. You might also have chest pains, your vision shuts down, you sweat and have an overwhelming urge to run away. A panic attack is also identifiable by the thoughts that accompany it. “You have a flood of ‘what ifs’,” says Fletcher. These might be: What if I’m about to die? What if I’m about to collapse? What if I’m about to have a heart attack?According to the NHS, most panic attacks last between 5 and 20 minutes, but some have been reported to last up to an hour.If you’re experiencing panic attacks, it helps to identify the things that are currently causing you stress so that you can try to alleviate at least some of them. If you’re having repeated attacks, talking therapies (such as cognitive behavioural therapy) and medicine are the main NHS-advised treatments.Fletcher urges people who have had more than occasional panic to seek help as it could be a sign of panic disorder – your first port of call should be your GP, but mental health charities can also offer support. You might also find it helpful to seek out a specialised private therapist.People who are prone to panic attacks have previously shared with HuffPost how breathing techniques have helped them, particularly those prone to hyper-ventilating. Fletcher, who has experienced panic disorder himself, doesn’t use techniques like breathing exercises because “when you use a technique, you’re telling the anxious brain it’s not ok to be anxious,” he says.The important thing to do, Fletcher says, is to remember “this feeling will always pass”. “Compassionately remind yourself it’s ok to be anxious,” he advises.Related...

In early March, IBM's leaders, like many others, faced a difficult question: How do you keep an office open during a pandemic?  IBM decided to use its Yorktown Heights, New York, location as a prototype for reopening its other offices. Bob Wisnieff, chief technology officer of quantum computing at IBM, helped oversee the effort to reimagine the workplace.  In addition to facility changes, the company has developed an app, Watson Works, that only allows a certain number of workers into the building at one time.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. As companies begin considering reopening their offices during the coronavirus pandemic, they are faced with a difficult question — how do you bring employees back to work while also ensuring their safety?  IBM has been dealing with this challenge since early March. The tech giant has about 350,000 employees worldwide, some of whom are considered essential workers. Bob Wisnieff, chief technology officer of quantum computing at IBM, who oversees some of the company's most expensive equipment, (equipment that needs daily check-ins and tunings) was tapped to help keep IBM's headquarters in Yorktown Heights, New York, up and running. Wisnieff devised a plan for the headquarters that other leaders could copy and apply to other global locations.  "Our main question was: How can we make sure that the people on sight are going to be working as safely as possible?" Wisnieff told Business Insider. "We retooled many many aspects of our site." Winsieff worked with state officials, an internal crisis response team, and the building's managers, to keep the office up and running for essential workers — like those who oversee IBM's top tech hardware devices. The office has since granted access to 10-15% of IBMs normal Yorktown Heights personnel who may need occasional entry to the technology and space.  IBM gave Business Insider a virtual tour of what it's like to work in an office that has been prepped to keep employees safe from coronavirus. SEE ALSO: How tech companies from Google to Salesforce are planning to reopen offices Bob Wisnieff, chief technology officer of quantum computing at IBM, had to figure out how to keep IBM's workers safe during the pandemic. Before COVID-19, about 1,300 people would be in the company's Yorktown Heights, New York, location on a given day. But when the pandemic hit, the company could only keep essential workers, about 200-300 people in the office. A group of AI experts at IBM developed Watson Works, a system to make sure there weren't too many people coming in at the same time, and that no one coming in had any symptoms. Before being allowed on site, workers have to take their temperature at home, report it, and answer a series of questions about any symptoms. If you don't complete the self check-in, you're not permitted to enter the building. Workers report which rooms and labs they plan on using, and during which times. That way the cleaning staff is notified when to clean certain areas of the building throughout the day. About 10 to 15% of IBM's workforce has been given permission to use the office. Only workers who need to use IBM's high-tech equipment, servers, or labs to run experiments, or who check in on some of the company's most expensive equipment are allowed in the office. There are mask dispensers, hand sanitizer stations, and disinfecting wipes throughout the building. There are signs, as well as stickers on the floor, to remind people to social distance in communal areas, such as inside bathrooms. Maika Takita is a research scientist in IBM's quantum computing lab. She comes into the office about two times a week to use equipment. Takita began coming into the office mid-July to use the quantum computing lab. She says the process of reporting her temperature and getting approved to enter the building is seamless. IBM leaders completely redesigned and restructured the cafeteria to encourage social distancing. They removed seating and added technology like a food ordering system to reduce human contact. Workers order their food ahead of time from their phones. When it's ready, a text message is sent. This ensures there aren't long lines during lunchtime. Food workers prepare options ahead of time in containers, making ordering faster. "The people working behind the counter are all wearing masks and gloves and the way it's set up, I feel safe. I also go to the cafe to grab coffee, where people are socially distanced and I rarely see more than one or two people on line," she said. IBM's Yorktown Heights location is a prototype for other offices around the world, some of which will be adopting similar changes. Wisnieff said the company will continue to adapt as the pandemic continues.
