Areas without Coronavirus spread (17th July update)

2020.07.17 18:16 _c9s_ Areas without Coronavirus spread (17th July update)

Here's an update to the post I made last week looking at the end of the spectrum we're not talking about so much - where we're not seeing many cases of Coronavirus spreading in the UK.
Orkney and the Western Isles are the only areas that haven't seen any cases in the past month now, with the other areas that were getting close last week mostly having a low number of cases crop up over the week.

Here's a big table of the date of the latest case reported in each local authority/health board, and how many cases they've had in the past two weeks:

Notes for Scotland

Scotland reports data based on local health boards rather than local authorities and with the date they were reported rather than the date the swab was taken. This will result in higher numbers than elsewhere and the latest cases being slightly more recent than the rest of the UK.

Notes for NI

Some parts of NI are reporting negative cases, which is mathematically impossible. I believe is due to the authorities reporting data incorrectly and then correcting it later without updating the historical data.

2020.07.09 18:44 _c9s_ Areas where Coronavirus isn't spreading

With lots of talk about the places where cases are spiking, I thought it might be interesting to look at the other end of the spectrum - where we're not seeing any cases reported.
Below is a list of all the Local Authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and health boards in Scotland, the date of their most recent case, and the number of cases in the past two weeks. Sorry for the length of this post!

Derry City and Strabane is the only part of the UK that haven't seen a case in over a month, with Uttlesford (in Essex), the Scottish isles (Orkney, Western Isles), and parts of the South West (Bath, North Devon) only slightly behind with no cases in the past 3 weeks.
Living in one of those areas, it does make me quite a bit less hesitant to do things like go to the pub, since there's such a low chance of catching it.

Notes for Scotland

Scotland reports data based on local health boards rather than local authorities and with the date they were reported rather than the date the swab was taken. This will result in higher numbers than elsewhere and the latest cases being slightly more recent than the rest of the UK.

Notes for NI

Some parts of NI (and also Scotland) are reporting negative cases, which is mathematically impossible. I believe is due to the authorities reporting data incorrectly and then correcting it later without updating the historical data. In Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon, as an example, there had been 754 confirmed cases on the 25th of June, which has dropped in several stages to 744 today.

Data sources

Edit: Welsh data was missing. I've added it now!

2020.05.12 19:46 Duncs11 SPVII: The Race for Bute House

#SPVII: The Race for Bute House
The date has been set, the candidates are being selected, and the strategy is being planned. In around one month, people across Scotland will go to the polls to elect the next Scottish Parliament. In turn, that Scottish Parliament will determine who the next First Minister of Scotland will be and the composition of the next Scottish Government.
It’s been a term of change in Scottish politics, with the two major leading parties merging with their smaller allies, largely as a result of national politics. The Classical Liberals merged with the Scottish Conservatives while the Scottish Greens merged with Scottish Labour. The end result is that those two parties now control the lions’ share of the popular vote in Scotland, and the likelihood is that one of them will end up with the First Minister amongst their ranks once the election is concluded and the term begins.
Seeking to unseat the Scottish Conservatives in Government is the Scottish Labour Party, led by Youmaton who will seek to become the first Labour First Minister since Jack McConnell left office in 2007 for a certain Alex Salmond. Boosted by the addition of the Scottish Greens to their ranks, the Scottish Labour Party are now the only mainstream left-wing party in Scotland, and will look to build a voting coalition ranging from Blarities to hard-left socialists, galvanising their support by trying to offer an alternative to the Scottish Conservatives.
At the last election, the Scottish Labour Party and the Scottish Greens combined the vote-share of the Classical Liberals and Scottish Conservatives, convincing 46% of the population to vote Labour or Green - after completing a comprehensive electoral pact to avoid competing against each other in constituencies. If they were starting from this marker, they’d be in with a very strong chance. However, the events of the term have seen their polling drop by 13% to 33% as of the last polls - a respectable share, but it gives them another hill to have to climb if they’re going to topple the Conservatives, and with not much time left to make up the gap, they’ll need a perfect campaign.
In Parliament, Labour’s strength has been their ability to pass relatively uncontroversial bills, such as the Schools (LGBT+ Education) Bill - giving them the chance to campaign on a pragmatic basis. However, serious questions have been asked of Labour over the last few months over their constitutional plans - an attempt to have welfare devolved to Scotland was roundly rejected and they’re coming under increased fire from the press and from the Conservatives after one of their MSPs admitted Labour supports a second independence referendum. Personnel concerns may also deter voters, with their Shadow Finance Spokesperson being attacked for divisive language, concerns over their Deputy Leader’s fitness to hold public office due to a history of sectarian remarks, and Youmaton losing her seat in Parliament after missing a series of votes. If Labour are to make up the gap and convince voters they can be trusted, they need strong answers in place when attacks come on these issues.
Seeking an unprecedented third term in office is the incumbent First Minister, Duncs11. Originally elected to the Parliament as a Classical Liberal, the First Minister swapped his President of the Delegation title for ‘Leader of the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party’ in January following the aforementioned merger. Now polling at 48% - up 5% from the combined Classical Liberal - Conservative voteshare last time out, the Conservatives have enjoyed the fruits of a majority coalition - governing alongside their partners in the LPUK and passing 25 pieces of legislation this term, including a series of landmark educational reforms which received praise across the Parliament. They look set to point to this record as the successes of two terms, and ask the people to give them a third. It’s also easy to expect some degree of emphasising their constitutional position as an avowed unionist party to contrast with Labour’s message.
However, the deal is far from sealed for the former Prime Minister. An entire campaign has to happen, and all the votes need to be cast - there have been larger falls from power before. Like Labour, the Conservatives have some personnel issues to consider - with Labour attempting to land blows on the Conservatives due to the voting record of BrexitGlory, MSP for Highlands, Tayside, and Fife - often the odd one out in the Parliament when the rest of the Tories vote with Labour on certain proposals. Certainly a marmite figure, but also a peripheral figure compared to other Scottish Conservatives, it remains to be seen how those votes will play out going forward. Of course, the wall all First Ministers and Prime Ministers come up against is fatigue for their agenda amongst the voters and wider population - ultimately no Government can continue forever, and there comes a point where an electorate will thank a leader for their service, but choose to go a different way - and it has happened to some of the greatest figures in British history. Whether or not the Scottish Conservatives have come up to this wall yet is severely questionable, but it is another thing to keep in mind throughout the campaign.
Further, winning a majority under a Proportional Representation system such as the AMS system used in Scottish Parliament elections is a huge task, and unless the Conservatives can add around another 5% onto their voteshare in the coming weeks, neither side will achieve it, and if that happens coalitions become essential to build, adding another twist in this saga.
It is clear that, while predictions can probably be made, the race for Bute House is a long way from over. The next month of politicking will determine whether Duncs11 stands outside Bute House again as the victor of another election, or if it’ll be Youmaton - returned as an MSP - who topples Scotland’s longest serving First Minister. There’s an exciting election still to come!
Written by my press persona, and I've attempted to be as objective as possible and fair in my analysis.

Scotland deaths, with population, median age, % pensioners, population density
tldr; can't find any patterns or draw any conclusions, maybe somebody else can
I merged the National Records of Scotland Covid-19 data with the 2019 mid year population estimates, to see if any patterns emerged, like higher population density equates to more deaths, or higher median age, or higher proportion of pensioners, but I'm drawing blanks

I've went a bit more in depth, calculating an age adjusted deaths per million, and age adjusted population density, still blanks

2019.06.15 19:59 lrtcampbell £2000 budget in the UK

Im not exactly sure that this is the best place to post, but am looking for suggestions on where I could buy a new pre-built pc along these specifications, or ideas or where to custom build a pc that is then built for me (know that some companies like pc specialist etc do this, where you can specify the parts or customise one of their pre-builts.) This is as im not quite confident enough to build one myself. Additionally I know that some companies do their own lines of pre-builts (overclockers etc) so if any of them are good that info would be great!
If this isn't the right place for this post please tell me, and thanks for any advice!
What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Gonna be mainly gaming, with a range of games from 4x (stellaris, civ 6, eu4 etc) to multiplayer (dota 2) to action (witcher, skyrim etc)
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
£2300 as a hard limit, ideally 2k
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Not sure at the moment, just looking to test the waters and
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Tower, os and keyboard
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
Scotland, in particular the Dundee/Tayside area
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Already got a mouse, thats it
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
May look into it, probably best to say no at this stage unless it would be a massive upgrade
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Do need a backup hd along with the ssd, as would most likely use it to store uni work/photos (wont be editing them just storing)
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Nope
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Yep, windows 10

Amendments at Stage 2:
A01:
For: 3 Against: 1 Abstain: 0 Turnout: 100%
This amendment is agreed.
The text of this Bill is given below.

Localism (Scotland) Bill

An Act of the Scottish Parliament to establish County Assemblies and administrations in Scotland; to make other provision about local government; and for connected purposes.

County government

1. The county government areas
On and after the day this section comes into force, Scotland is to be divided into the areas set out in schedule 1 (each to be known as a "county government area").
2. County assemblies and administrations
(1) For every county government area there is to be:
(2) The assembly for each county government area is to be a body corporate.
(3) The governor for each county government area is to be regarded as a juristic person distinct from the natural person holding the office.
(4) Accordingly, the assembly and the governor for each county government area are to be known by the following name with the addition of the name of the particular area:
  • (a) in relation to the assembly, "The Assembly", and
  • (b) in relation to the governor, "The Governor".

County government elections

3. General elections to the assemblies
(1) There is to be a separate election for each county government area.
(2) The first general election is to be held on the day the Scottish Ministers may by regulations appoint for the purposes of this subsection.
(3) Regulations under subsection (2) must appoint a date not later than the day six months from the day this section comes into force.
(4) Each subsequent general election is to be held on the day four years subsequent to the day the previous general election was held.
(5) But if by virtue of subsection (4) a general election would be held on a Saturday or Sunday, that election is instead to be held on the first Thursday after the Saturday or Sunday on which the election, but for this subsection, would have been held.
(6) At each general election, there are to be returned in each county government area:
  • (a) 25 district members,
  • (b) 25 regional members, and
  • (c) a governor.
(7) Schedule 2 makes further provision about general elections to county assemblies.
4. Review of county electoral arrangements
(1) It is the duty of the Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland ("the Boundary Commission") to, from time to time:
  • (a) review the electoral arrangements for each county government area for the purpose of considering future electoral arrangements for those areas, and
  • (b) formulate proposals for those arrangements.
(2) Part 2 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 applies to such a review as it applies to a review under section 16 of that Act, except that section 17 of that Act has effect as if it required:
  • (a) the Boundary Commission to submit a report on any review before such date as the Scottish Ministers may direct, and
  • (b) the Scottish Ministers to make an order under section 17 of that Act giving effect to the proposals of the Commission submitted under subsection (1) (whether as submitted to them or with modifications).

The county assemblies

5. County ordinances
(1) Subject to section 6, each county assembly may make laws (to be known as ordinances of that county government area).
(2) A proposed ordinance is to be known as a Bill; and a Bill becomes an ordinance when it has been passed by the county assembly and has received Royal Assent.
(3) A Bill receives Royal Assent at the beginning of the day on which Letters Patent under the Scottish Seal signed with Her Majesty's own hand signifying Her Assent are recorded in the Register of the Great Seal.
(4) But Her Majesty's powers under subsection (3) are exercisable on behalf of Her Majesty by the governor for the county assembly's area.
(5) The date of Royal Assent is to be written on each ordinance by the governor and is to form a part of the ordinance.
(6) Every ordinance is to be judicially noticed.
(7) This section does not affect the power of the Scottish Parliament to make laws for a county government area.
6. Legislative competence
(1) An ordinance is not law so far as any provision of the ordinance is outside the legislative competence of the county assembly which passed the Bill for the ordinance.
(2) A provision is outside that competence so far as:
  • (a) it makes provision as respects an area other than the county government area of the county assembly,
  • (b) it relates to a reserved matter,
  • (c) it could not be made by an Act of the Scottish Parliament,
  • (d) it is inconsistent with an Act of the Scottish Parliament or an Act of Parliament, or with provision made under or by virtue of either such enactments.
(3) For the purposes of this Act, a "reserved matter" is any matter described or referred to in the following paragraphs:
  • (a) justice;
  • (b) transport;
  • (c) the subject-matter of this Act.

The county administrations

7. The county administrations
(1) The governor for a county government area may, with the approval of the assembly for that area, appoint governors depute a deputy governor.
(2) The governor for a county government area may by notice laid before the county assembly delegate the exercise of any of the governor's functions to one or more of the governors depute the deputy governor, subject to such restrictions as the notice may set out.
8. County general fund
(1) Each governor is to maintain a fund, known as the general fund for the governor's area.
(2) The Scottish Ministers may from time to time make such payments into the general fund for a county government area as they may determine.
(3) Sums received by a governor or an office-holder under an ordinance for that governor's area are to be paid into the general fund for that area.
(4) A sum may only be paid out of a general fund if it has been charged on the fund by:
  • (a) an Act of the Scottish Parliament, or
  • (b) an ordinance of the assembly for the governor's area.
(5) A sum paid out of the fund must not be applied for any purpose other than that for which it was charged or, as the case may be, paid out.

General

This Act comes into force on the day after Royal Assent.
10. Short title
The short title of this Act is the Localism (Scotland) Act 2018.

Polls at the general election

2 At each general election, a poll is to be held in each electoral district in a county government area at which each person entitled to vote as an elector may vote by marking on the ballot paper the voter's preference from among the candidates to be returned as the district member for that electoral district.
3 (1) At each general election, there is also to be held in a county government area:
  • - (a) a poll for the return of the regional members for the area (the "regional poll"), and
    • (b) a poll for the return of a governor for the area (the "governor poll").
  • (2) A person entitled to vote as an elector may give a vote:
    • (a) for the regional poll, for a registered political party which has submitted a regional list for that county government area or an individual candidate for the area;
    • (b) for the governor poll, by marking on the ballot paper:

Order of determination

6 The persons who are to be returned as district members for the county government area are to be determined before the persons who are to be returned as regional members for the area.

Allocation of seats

8 (1) If, in the application of paragraph 7, the highest regional figure is the figure of two or more parties or individual candidates, that paragraph applies to each of them.
  • (2) If sub-paragraph (1) would result in more than the correct number of seats for the area being allocated, paragraph 7 is to apply as if the regional figure for each of those parties or candidates had been adjusted in accordance with paragraph 9.
  • (3) If sub-paragraph (2) would result in more than the correct number of seats for the area being allocated, the returning officer is to determine to which of the candidates the seat is to be allocated by lot.
9 The regional figure for a party or candidate is adjusted in accordance with this paragraph by:
  • (a) adding one vote to the total number of votes given for the party or candidate at the regional poll for the county government area, and
  • (b) in the case of a party, recalculating the regional figure accordingly.
10 In this Part, "regional figure" means:

12 (1) Where a regional seat is allocated to a registered political party, the candidates on the party's regional list are returned as regional members for the county government area in the order they appear on that list until:
  • - (a) the party's allocation of seats for regional members is exhausted, or
    • (b) the party's regional list is exhausted.
  • (2) Once a party's regional list is exhausted, the party is to be disregarded.

Part 4 (Return of governors)

Return of a candidate

13 The candidate who is returned as the governor for a county government area is the candidate who receives votes at the governor poll for that area exceeding the electoral quota.
14 (1) If more than one candidate so exceeds the electoral quota, the candidate who is returned is the candidate who received the highest number of votes at the governor poll for the county government area.
  • (2) If no candidate so exceeds the electoral quota, this paragraph and paragraph 14 are to apply as if there had been adjusted in accordance with paragraph 15:
  • - (a) the number of votes received by each candidate at the governor poll, and
    • (b) the electoral quota.
15 (1) The number of votes received by each candidate for governor of a county government area is adjusted in accordance with this paragraph by:
  • - (a) identifying, of the ballots received by the candidate who had received the lowest number of votes at the governor poll for the area, how many specified a further preference for candidate for governor,
    • (b) disregarding that candidate, and
    • (c) for each remaining candidate, increasing (or further increasing) the number of votes that candidate received by the number of ballots so identified on which that candidate is specified as the next available preference.
  • (2) The electoral quota is adjusted in accordance with this paragraph by recalculating the quota and, in doing so, disregarding the ballots received by the candidate disregarded under sub-paragraph (1)(b) which do not specify a further preference for candidate for governor.

Electoral quota

16 For the purposes of this Part, there is to be an electoral quota calculated by:
  • (a) dividing the total number of valid ballot papers for the governor poll for a county government area by two, and
  • (b) increasing the resultant value by one.

(4) Each subsequent general election is to be held on the day four years subsequent to the day the previous general election was held.
(5) But if by virtue of subsection (4) a general election would be held on a Saturday or Sunday, that election is instead to be held on the first Thursday after the Saturday or Sunday on which the election, but for this subsection, would have been held.
(6) At each general election, there are to be returned in each county government area:
  • (a) 25 district members,

  • (b) formulate proposals for those arrangements.
(2) Part 2 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 applies to such a review as it applies to a review under section 16 of that Act, except that section 17 of that Act has effect as if it required:
  • (a) the Boundary Commission to submit a report on any review before such date as the Scottish Ministers may direct, and
  • (b) the Scottish Ministers to make an order under section 17 of that Act giving effect to the proposals of the Commission submitted under subsection (1) (whether as submitted to them or with modifications).

The county assemblies

5. County ordinances
(1) Subject to section 6, each county assembly may make laws (to be known as ordinances of that county government area).
(2) A proposed ordinance is to be known as a Bill; and a Bill becomes an ordinance when it has been passed by the county assembly and has received Royal Assent.
(3) A Bill receives Royal Assent at the beginning of the day on which Letters Patent under the Scottish Seal signed with Her Majesty's own hand signifying Her Assent are recorded in the Register of the Great Seal.
(4) But Her Majesty's powers under subsection (3) are exercisable on behalf of Her Majesty by the governor for the county assembly's area.
(5) The date of Royal Assent is to be written on each ordinance by the governor and is to form a part of the ordinance.
(6) Every ordinance is to be judicially noticed.
(7) This section does not affect the power of the Scottish Parliament to make laws for a county government area.
6. Legislative competence
(1) An ordinance is not law so far as any provision of the ordinance is outside the legislative competence of the county assembly which passed the Bill for the ordinance.
(2) A provision is outside that competence so far as:
  • (a) it makes provision as respects an area other than the county government area of the county assembly,
  • (b) it relates to a reserved matter,
  • (c) it could not be made by an Act of the Scottish Parliament,

8. County general fund
(1) Each governor is to maintain a fund, known as the general fund for the governor's area.
(2) The Scottish Ministers may from time to time make such payments into the general fund for a county government area as they may determine.
(3) Sums received by a governor or an office-holder under an ordinance for that governor's area are to be paid into the general fund for that area.
(4) A sum may only be paid out of a general fund if it has been charged on the fund by:
  • (a) an Act of the Scottish Parliament, or
  • (b) an ordinance of the assembly for the governor's area.
(5) A sum paid out of the fund must not be applied for any purpose other than that for which it was charged or, as the case may be, paid out.

2015.12.14 21:35 samsari Scottish region of the week (part 3 of 32): Angus

This Series

I stole this idea from faffri who started a series on /sweden with a post for each of their 290 kommuns. Rather than come up with an original idea, copying seems much easier. An entirely arbitrary division to base this series on, but Scotland only has 32 council regions so we might even make it to the end before we get bored.
It is my hope that this series will help shift some focus away from the central belt and onto the more interesting parts of Scotland that often get overlooked. And I want a local from each region to take charge and/or help me write the post.
We'll be going alphabetically from this list. Which means that Argyll and Bute will be next. So if anyone from there wants to help me out for next week, the help will really be appreciated.
Suggestions if anyone has some good ideas for how to improve this series are always welcome.
Anyway, on with the show.

Description

Angus (Scottish Gaelic: Aonghas) was historically a county, known officially as Forfarshire from the 18th century until 1928. It remains a registration county and a lieutenancy area. In 1975 its administrative functions were transferred to the council district of the Tayside Region, and in 1995 further reform resulted in the establishment of the unitary Angus Council.
The area that now comprises Angus has been occupied since at least the Neolithic period. Material taken from postholes from an enclosure at Douglasmuir, near Friockheim, about five miles north of Arbroath have been radiocarbon dated to around 3500 BC. Bronze age archaeology is to be found in abundance in the area. Examples include the short-cist burials found near West Newbigging, about a mile to the North of the town. These burials included pottery urns, a pair of silver discs and a gold armlet.
The county is traditionally associated with the Pictish kingdom of Circinn, which is thought to have encompassed Angus and the Mearns. Bordering it were the kingdoms of Ce (Mar and Buchan) to the North, Fotla (Atholl) to the West, and Fib (Fife) to the South. The most visible remnants of the Pictish age are the numerous sculptured stones that can be found throughout Angus. Of particular note are the collections found at Aberlemno, St Vigeans, Kirriemuir and Monifieth.
Angus is marketed as the birthplace of Scotland. The signing of the Declaration of Arbroath at Arbroath Abbey in 1320 marked Scotland's establishment as an independent nation. It is an area of rich history from Pictish times onwards. Notable historic sites in addition to Arbroath Abbey include Glamis Castle, Arbroath Signal Tower museum and the Bell Rock Light House.
I am also reliably informed that it's a horrifically dull place. My source lists one Angus fact however: It's one of the few places in Scotland where it's name in gaelic (Aonghas) isn't a reference to rivers, mountains or castles or a shoehorning of Gaelic into a place which never had a gaelic name. Aonghas is a given name so it could be called for a bloke named Angus, but on it's own it means 'the one'.

Dialect

The most recent available census results (2001) show that Gaelic is spoken by 0.45% of the Angus population. This, similar to other lowland areas, is lower than the national average of 1.16%. These figures are self-reported and are not broken down into levels of fluency.
Historically, the dominant language in Angus was Pictish until the sixth to seventh centuries AD when the area became progressively gaelicised, with Pictish extinct by the mid-ninth century. Gaelic/Middle Irish began to retreat from lowland areas in the late-eleventh century and was absent from the Eastern lowlands by the fourteenth century. It was replaced there by Middle Scots, the contemporary local South Northern dialect of Modern Scots, while Gaelic persisted as a majority language in the highland Glens until the 19th century. Scottish English is now increasingly replacing Scots.
Angus Council are planning to raise the status of Gaelic in the county by adopting a series of measures, including bilingual road signage, communications, vehicle livery and staffing.
