Biden unveils "wartime" COVID strategy

Almost a year in to this being a world-wide issue, the adults are here and taking a far more sensible approach to tackling the Coronavirus pandemic. It's so satisfying to see, on this issue alone. I hope the UK follows their lead and starts to take it all more seriously. Herd immunity isn't working and neither is the viscous lockdown and cycle. Mandating masks is almost a year overdue in this country.

@Femi_Sorry made a very good point about mental health this morning. It might take us some time to get back to and even be able to enjoy normality. I'm not even thinking about going abroad or letting the kids loose in a playground in 2021.

Then there's the potential return to busy office environments, cinemas, shops and anywhere else people gather. We might not want to be near people from outside our 'bubbles' for a while.

If you don't already, follow @devisridhar for a common sense and the realistic (with a bit of positivity thrown in) stance on how things are going.

Some of the weirdest and dumbest shit Donald Trump did during his presidency

I know we can all breathe a little easier with a grown up in charge of America again, but this Twitter thread just brought me a lot of joy.

"FINDING ‘OHANA" trailer

I saw the thumbnail, and instantly thought of The Goonies. That's exactly what this looks like, a modern take on one of my favourite movies of all time! It's set in Hawaii too, so I'll be watching as soon as it's out!

Pharrell on Drink Champs

A lot of respect is shown between N.O.R.E. and Pharrell for each other. It's a great conversation to listen too although 3 hours is a long time. They cover a lot of topics and there's some fantastic insight into his career. If you can make the time, high recommend watching this interview.

Social media platforms muzzle Trump after Capitol melee

President or not, he should have been held to the same, if not higher, standard than the rest or us. This action is long overdue. Facebook have suspended his account indefinitely (minimum 2 weeks) and Twitter should do the same instead of waiting for further violations.

Everyone should stop following him, but if the only way that happens is by banning him, so be it. The western world has wasted 5 years on Trump and Brexit. What a world we live in.

AirPods Max - hear what it actually sounds like (? Headphones required)

Clever demonstration of the noise cancellation features. I have the regular AirPods and always wondered what transparency mode was like on the Pro models and now I have a pretty good idea thanks to this video.

Post-Brexit Britain arrives

Excellent summary from Axios:

The bottom line: For the past 40 years, Britain found peace and prosperity as one of the most important players in a community of more than 400 million people. As of today, it has become, once again, an island off the coast of Europe.
