Are the Club or the Trust setting up a Zoom site for Swans fans to join?

Or are there any general Swans websites that people can recommend? Getting a little bit stir crazy here in London.

Positive news in the Corona virus pandemic

It may be outnumbered by the bad, but it deserves its own thread.

Put any positive pieces of news here. Especially welcome are anything you have witnessed personally.

And on this occasion you are allowed to big yourself up, even if it is something tiny. No false modesty!

Fact-checking Websites, e.g. Snopes

Misinformation can kill so it's vital to have websites that can quash unfounded scare stories. Snopes is one of the oldest (and positively mentioned by Tummer). Any others that people here go to every day?

Brexit means More Red Tape
at 20:16 7 Mar 2020

Well of course it does. Strange that Brexit politicians said the opposite with a straight face.

Here's one of many, many examples. Feel free to add your own.

Or alternatively, provide examples where there's less bureacracy because of Brexit (are there any?).

The last decade was the hottest in history
at 20:54 8 Jan 2020

https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/2019-weather-hottest-year-history-eu-c

Last year was Earth’s second hottest year on record, with the decade as a whole the warmest in history, the European Union’s climate monitoring service has said.

Data released by the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) found that the average temperature in 2019 was only a few hundredths of a degree below the record 2016 level.

In Europe specifically, 2019 was the hottest year on record, the EU‘s climate service said. Within the decade, Copernicus also found that the five last years were the hottest on record for the planet.

“These are unquestionably alarming signs,” Copernicus director Jean-Noel Thepaut said.

Global temperatures in 2019 were 0.6 Celsius hotter than the average in 1981-2010. Additionally the last five years were 1.1C-1.2C warmer than the pre-industrial era.

There's a lot more in the article.

Growing Up Poor: Britain's Breadline Kids. Channel 4

This is at 10 tonight, please watch it if you can bear to because it's hard viewing. And this isn't to do with party politics because both Labour and the Conservatives have let these children down.

If you don't see it tonight, it will be on the C4 site later, fair warning, it's easier to watch a horror movie.

How in our lifetime did we end up with 4 million (four million?!) children in poverty like this where they are going hungry? This isn't families not being hard working, or not being responsible parents, or spending money on crap instead of food and housing. It's just wrong.

In another thread, someone implied that being homeless is a lifestyle choice. But you can work hard and still be homeless. Good luck to this young lady.

Well done, Norwich Council

Building streets of houses rather than tower blocks. I would have liked to know what the council tenants think though.

"Goldsmith Street in Norwich represents what has become a rare breed: streets of terraced homes built directly by the council, rented with secure tenancies at fixed social rents. And it’s an architectural marvel, too."

What's your points forecast for October?
at 13:10 3 Oct 2019

There are five matches this month and everyone starts with 3 points for the win at Charlton.

We now have a sequence of matches against lower ranked teams: Stoke (home), Barnsley (away), Brentford (home) and Cardiff (home).

I think we'll win the first three and draw against Cardiff to get 13 points out of a possible 15 and Cooper to be awarded Manager of the Month again.

FREE Charlton ticket

UPDATE. This ticket has now been taken. There were five responses.

I have a Charlton ticket but am now unable to go there because of a (small) family emergency. Send me a message and I'll be happy to post it to you tomorrow by 1st class post. Please put whatever you think that this is worth into a charity box somewhere.

Absolutely gutted, because I've a feeling that we can win this match.

This also mentions the court case so it's becoming known about. The article is useful for bringing other fans up to speed but doesn't tell ourselves anything new.

Although I admit that I was puzzled what our link to the Scottish island of Iona could possibly be.
