UK Covid news: Boris Johnson cancels trip to India because of Covid crisis there
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 08:51:42 GMT

Latest updates: PM’s forthcoming trip to India cancelled as country’s total cases reach 15m

Boris Johnson has cancelled his planned trip to India. No 10 has just released this joint statement from the British and Indian governments.

In the light of the current coronavirus situation, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will not be able to travel to India next week. Instead, Prime Ministers Modi and Johnson will speak later this month to agree and launch their ambitious plans for the future partnership between the UK and India. They will remain in regular contact beyond this, and look forward to meeting in person later this year.

As my colleague Nicola Davis reported last week, only 77 cases of the Indian variant of coronavirus, B1617, have been found in the UK so far. “It is designated a ‘variant under investigation’ but is worrying researchers as it contains two mutations that it is thought may help the virus to evade the body’s immune responses,” Nicola explained.

This morning Prof Danny Altmann, professor of immunology at Imperial College London, said he expected B1617 to be upgraded to a “variant of concern” quite soon. That would lead to India being placed on the “red list” for travel, he said (which would probably force Boris Johnson to cancel his trip due to start this weekend). Altmann told Good Morning Britain:

At the moment, this particular variant (from India) is called a variant under investigation, not a variant of concern because it hasn’t been escalated to that level yet.

My assumption from everything I’ve seen is that it will become a variant of concern. When it becomes a variant of concern, I’d be quite surprised if India wasn’t on the red list.

This variant has a couple of mutations that are among those that we think are important that should be watched carefully, but they’re actually probably not at the very kind of top tier of mutations, for example in the B117 - or Kent variant - or the South African variant, that generate the most concern.

And in terms of spread, clearly this variant has increased in frequency in India around the same time as their very large and tragic recent wave.

Leaders agree to vaccination rollout changes – as it happened
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 08:15:10 GMT

Fourth Perth hospital health worker goes into self-quarantine while scammers target people seeking vaccines. This blog is now closed

That is where we will leave the live blog for Monday. Thanks for following along. Here’s what we learned today:

The PM’s office has just released the statement out of the national cabinet meeting tonight. This is the bit on what was agreed to:

National cabinet agreed in-principle to a series of changes to the Australian Covid-19 vaccination strategy that will be put forward for approval at the next meeting of national cabinet, including options to bring forward the commencement of vaccinations for over-50-year-olds under the Australian Covid-19 vaccination strategy priority group 2A, and the readiness of more state- and territory-operated vaccination sites, including mass vaccination sites, as vaccine supplies increase.

National cabinet reinforced that general practice will continue to be the primary model of rolling out vaccinations for Australians over 50 years of age, with states and territories to consider options to supplement rollout through expanded state vaccination centres.

‘Respect the water’: RNLI lifeguard training in Cornwall
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 06:00:25 GMT

Ahead of a busy summer of domestic tourism in the UK, qualified lifeguards and trainees rehearse life-saving procedures

From a distance the ocean looks calm – safe, even – but a sticker peeling from a window in St Agnes lifeguard station offers a cautionary warning to all visitors: Respect the Water, it says.

The summer ahead promises to be busier than ever in Cornwall, with a boom in domestic tourism fuelled by global coronavirus restrictions. This beautiful but unforgiving stretch of coastline will see its fair share of rescues.

The RNLI is training new lifeguards in preparation. Today, a group of five are learning first aid skills and rehearsing water rescue techniques using tubes and rescue boards – they must wear PPE for close proximity drills, even in the water. The trainees range in age from 16 to 33 and include students, a gas engineer, a marine biologist and a former champion surfer.

With journeys to distant corners of the globe still on hold, our writers are gearing up to hike, climb, camp, and swim on home turf

When we were kids it was always UK holidays, usually under canvas, and always recalled with affection. I have no problem giving up foreign travel for a while, although I do miss the sheer scale and biodiversity of distant wildernesses and worry about the communities who invested hope, and effort, in tourism as a way of holding off the oilmen, gold prospectors and road diggers. I’m praying they hang on. We will return!

Astronaut selection: tips from Thomas
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 16:30:00 +0200
Video: 00:02:18

In 2008, Thomas Pesquet applied to become an ESA astronaut. On 22 April 2021, he will fly his second mission to the International Space Station. In this video Thomas shares how he found his way to space, and encourages viewers to follow their passions as ESA seeks its next class of astronauts.

Nobody is perfect on their first attempt at a task, but Thomas says the only way to improve is to try and keep trying. Though becoming an astronaut seemed a distant dream when he was younger, by continuing to challenge himself and learn along the way he developed the skills he needed to put himself forward and become one of a small group who have travelled to space.

Whatever your passion, his advice is universal: try your best, and if you don’t succeed it doesn’t matter. What does matter is perseverance.

Oil futures up 4 sessions in a row
Thu, 15 Apr 2021 18:37:10 GMT

Oil futures climbed Thursday to tally a fourth session gain in a row. A higher forecast for global oil demand from the International Energy Agency and recent data from the Energy Information Administration showing a third straight weekly decline in U.S. crude inventories continued to provide support for prices. Traders also eyed the latest talks on the Iran nuclear deal. May West Texas Intermediate crude rose 31 cents, or 0.5%, to settle at $63.46 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange after climbing 4.9% on Wednesday. Prices for the front-month contract logged another finish at their highest since March 17, FactSet data show.

From Russian YouTube to spinning on the spot: Hollywood’s tricks to playing drunk
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 08:00:26 GMT

Gone is the ‘do it for real’ approach – the stars of Mank and Another Round take a more sober approach to acting inebriated

Were there an Oscar for best on-screen drunk (which there really should be), it would be a close-run thing this year. My money would be on Aubrey Plaza, who provides a magnificent display of wastedness in her new movie, Black Bear. Playing a neurotic indie actor at the end of her tether, she spends half the movie stumbling, lurching, wailing and losing her dignity. She wasn’t actually drunk, of course. This is the great challenge: acting drunk when you’re sober is no easier than acting sober when you’re drunk. To get into the right frame of unsteadiness, Plaza would spin round until almost throwing up just before the scene. That’s commitment.

The Great British Art Tour: Chagall leaves his dreams for a living nightmare
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 05:00:24 GMT

With public art collections closed we are bringing the art to you, exploring highlights from across the country in partnership with Art UK. Today’s pick: Apocalypse en Lilas, Capriccio by Marc Chagall, in London’s Ben Uri gallery.

This gouache, ink and pencil study in lilac and grey was executed in April 1945 by Marc Chagall after almost four years in exile in New York. He had fled to the US after the Nazi occupation of France during the second world war. Born into a Hasidic Jewish family in Vitebsk, Russia (now in Belarus), in 1887, Chagall arrived in Paris in 1910 and became a celebrated artist of the École de Paris, best known for his dreamlike paintings combining aspects of French tradition with Russian folklore and Jewish motifs. In 1923, he and his wife Bella became naturalised French citizens.

This was probably the first work that Chagall produced after coming out of mourning for Bella, who had died suddenly in September 1944 after almost 30 years of marriage. It was created in response to seeing the horrors of the concentration camps revealed through newspapers and Pathé newsreels. His pencil titles in Cyrillic (upper right) translate as “Apocalypse” and “Capriccio” (fantasy), and his biographer Jackie Wullschläger has described it as “the bleakest of Chagall’s many crucifixions”: combining symbolism with realism and incorporating factual information about the Holocaust for the first time.

Leaving Afghanistan: the west has lessons to learn | Letters
Sun, 18 Apr 2021 16:51:56 GMT

As troops prepare to withdraw from the war-torn country, readers reflect on western nations’ involvement and legacy

Your editorial (15 April) asserts that the Taliban were quick to take over when the Russians left. That is simply not true; it actually took seven years, from the end of Soviet combat operations in 1989 to the capture of Kabul by the Taliban in 1996. The crucial event was the withdrawal of Russian subsidies to the Najibullah regime in 1992.

It took a further two years for that regime to collapse, and two years more of chaos and intra-mujahideen fighting to create the void into which the Taliban stepped. This all matters because there was nothing inevitable about the Taliban’s takeover in 1996 and neither is there now.

ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti has started training at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, USA. Set to launch for her second mission in spring 2022, Samantha is already getting reacquainted with International Space Station systems in a series of refresher courses.

Samantha was last on the International Space Station in 2014 for her Futura mission. She spent 200 days in space, conducting European and international scientific experiments and Space Station operations.

In the coming months, her schedule will intensify as she trains for the specific experiments and tasks she will perform in space during her second mission.

As a collaborative, international effort between the United States, Europe, Canada, Russia and Japan, Space Station training takes place across the globe. Samantha will be training between Johnson Space Center in the USA, the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre in Star City, Russia and the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, Germany.

Samantha and her fellow Class of 2009 astronauts will soon welcome new colleagues. For the first time in over a decade, the European Space Agency is seeking new astronauts and applications are open from 31 March to 28 May 2021. A six-stage selection process will start thereafter. This is expected to be completed in October 2022.

Ready to make #YourWayToSpace? Check out the dedicated website with all the information relating to ESA’s 2021–22 astronaut selection. 

Most importantly, get ready to apply. Perhaps you will find yourself where Samantha is today.
