Three are notoriously patchy with their coverage although they do make a reasonable punt (compared to others) at kind of acknowledging it and Durham has always been a bit weird when it comes to coverage

Somewhere they'll be managers in marketing or other departments who called this bullshit out for what it was; they'll have had had their cards marked for being against it and yet now, after being proven correct, they'll remain a pariah. For making the bleeding obvious call all along.
PHBs never go back and promote the guy who correctly went against their idea.
5 downvotes? I wonder why?
Work based first aid provision has been diluted down something rotten over the last 25 years and hardly resembles what used to be taught. Bearing in mind we now have to support and maintain a patient for much much longer than we used to, learning more than the basics condensed into a few hours is actually something that most folk would benefit from.
You can easily be on for four hours plus. Nothing is taught to prepare people for that length of care anymore.
I'm sat here using my 20 yr old Microsoft Intellimouse Optical.
Given to me by a tech friend at work who could get used to it, it's survived a redundancy, two jobs, a return back to my original employer and about 12 office moves since. It's a lovely faded 'smkoers yellow' and the surface as become shiny through repeated use but otherwise it's good as.
I also quickly Googled it and there's some very optimistic pricing out there for these things used!
I don't know enough about Tesla components but the comparisons need to remain on point to hold validity. Most moderns are written off for all sorts of things, I guess it's just breakers are able to salvage and reuse parts (depending ion the category of write off of course, at least in the UK) which for whatever reason Tesla can't / won't allow.
The fact is cars are less likely to be killed by rust nowadays than a component failure. It's an issue for all manufacturers going back a number of years although it certainly appears Tesla is worse.
I'm struggling to get one of mine back on the road because of a bloody fuel pump off all things.
By which I refer to the lack of remuneration or additional holiday for time taken out. That would have been resolved on my return, dangerous precedent set otherwise.
Regarding the Ops Dir, I reckon we've all seen the revolving door effect a few times when a WonderSuit with glowing credentials and a CV to match don't make it through probation
I hear you.
In footy circles there's 'Sorare' (think a posh digital Panini sticker album) and those punting it keep explaining it's secure unlike other football themed investments schemes (Football Index for one) because it sues blockchain.
Trying to ask how blockchain can ensure the market won't collapse typically gets answered with a sneer along the lines of 'If you don't understand what blockchain is, this probably isn't for you'.
Yeah, I'm the one who doesn't understand how blockchain works...
I agree, regular and / or frequent changes for the sake of it are old hat. Our workplace insisted on this until WFH triggered by Covid, despite me discussing this with our Head of IT. His response was he's been instructed to do so by one of the the senior managers 'who knows things about IT' and he was equally as frustrated. In fact I believe GCHQ even updated their recommendations to reflect this (for the reasons above, repetition and writing down creates weak links).
Also, 12 characters or more? Hard to do that when portals still insist on '6-8 letters' to create a strong password (yes City and Guilds I am looking at you). This continues to push the myth that 6 is enough
