Boris Johnson is thrashing out plans with the devolved leaders for families to reunite over Christmas amid hopes that restrictions under the new Covid tier system will be over by Easter. The talks between the Government and the devolved administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are continuing in a bid to find a common approach to household mixing over the festive period. Mr Johnson confirmed on Monday that England will return to a regional tier system from December 2, but was unable to spell out any further details for Christmas.
I have a distinct memory of my dad telling me a certain boyfriend “wasn’t worth it”. I was 16. It had been my first love, and we’d just broken up. “You’re a beautiful girl, Laura,” my dad said to me, while driving. “You’re smart and you don’t have to put up with someone who makes you sad.” It’s simple advice but it stuck. I reminded myself of his words often in the following years, usually following a breakup. But when my longest relationship ended late last year, my dad was no longer able to give me the same speech. The breakup unfortunately coincided with the gradual loss of my father to dementia. It was a horrible experience: I found out that my boyfriend of five years had cheated on me while I was visiting my parents in New Zealand. My dad’s health was rapidly deteriorating and my mum feared it would be the last time I saw him, so I attempted to hide my heartbreak. I flew back to New York, where my partner and I lived together, to find myself single for the first time since college. After the official split, one of the first places my mind went to was that conversation I had as a teenager with my dad. While my ex-boyfriend packed his bags and moved out, the memory of those words was my only source of comfort. Very quickly, I entered the dating world — for all the wrong reasons. My ex had started seeing someone in Paris, parading her around places we had visited only a few months prior, on an anniversary trip no less. My natural reaction was to enter the unspoken game of who cares less. I developed a routine: Go out on a date that I wasn’t ready for, come home alone to a house that felt empty, check my ex’s Instagram stories, then message or call my mother to ask how my father was doing in the dementia home he had just moved into back in New Zealand. During this time, it’s no surprise that the connections I made weren’t healthy. I downplayed the heartbreak I felt over my ex and completely avoided talking about the nightmare happening at home. I accepted treatment that I otherwise wouldn’t have, grew tired of people quickly, and ended things with anyone who was remotely “too nice” to me. “You’re just too happy, and I’m really not,” is an excuse I’m ashamed to admit I used. I was grieving the slow loss of my father and the abrupt loss of my relationship. My ex-boyfriend had become like family to me, and I was living far away from our home in New Zealand. In that state, my search for a new partner was getting confused with a search for a sense of security. But I quickly learned that forcing intimacy with someone I wasn’t entirely into left me feeling worse than I did alone. I’d often leave dates wishing I liked the person, giving them a second or third date in the hopes that I eventually would, then starting over with someone new when I realised I was ultimately uninterested. By luck, I ended up on a date with someone who soon became my best friend. Though we were both unavailable for a romantic relationship, we went to events together, had movie nights, and scheduled dinners every week, in a dynamic that felt comforting and loving. He was also a writer, and we’d read each other’s work and have lengthy discussions about our concerns around romance. Slowly, I began to open up to him about my father. While he moved away during the pandemic, in hindsight, I can see how our interactions gave me insight into how a less traditional partnership could take shape, creating something that’s sustainable, and enjoyable, for the more long-term future. We’re still building on our relationship every day. My father passed away a few months ago, in August. By then, I found myself in a place where dating was the lowest thing on my priority list — and instead of reaching out to a new partner, I was immediately surrounded by love and support from true friends. While I’d already decided to be more intentional with dating, my dad’s words to me as a teenager took on a new importance. They became a guiding force, encouraging me to cut ties with anyone who wasn’t adding value to my life and to unlearn the societal pressure that teaches us that our worth as humans comes from how desirable other people find us to be. For me, this looks like speaking to fewer people, saying no more often, and putting more energy into friendships and self-development. I put this into practice during my first dating experience since my father’s passing. During dinner, I noticed that I wasn’t feeling supported. My date spoke over me while I discussed my work and made subtle jokes about my interests, even though he had very few of his own. However good he seemed on paper and however faint the orange flags may have been, my father’s advice inspired me to opt out of seeing what the next date would bring. While this may seem like a small step, it felt empowering to choose to be single rather than pursuing the wrong relationship for the sake of being in one. Three months since my dad’s death, that ongoing work has led to me being the most happily single I’ve ever been. Without my dad to look out for me, I’ve found myself more eager to look out for myself. I’ve also made the decision to keep my family name if I ever decide to get married (something I’m very much on the fence about). While there have been moments where the loss has left me feeling the urge to make more connections, I’ve built a complete life outside of dating that I hope will only be complemented (not made) by anyone I choose romantically. I doubt my father had any idea that a car conversation we had about a teenage boyfriend would become my go-to principal through dating as an adult. But his advice rings true for all of us. Too often the pressure to feel desirable or not be alone, especially for female-identifying people, leads us into romantic situations that are just not “worth it.” Interrogating that idea has led me to a healthier outlook on being single. Guided by my father’s wisdom, deprioritising romance during this time has been more fulfilling than I ever expected. Which is why it’s also my plan moving forward. For my dad’s sake, I intend to advocate for myself as strongly as I know he would, if he were still alive. Like what you see?

Travellers arriving in England will be able to end their quarantine period after five days from December 15, if they pay for a coronavirus test that comes back negative. The travel industry welcomed the policy, announced by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, but described it as "long overdue". Under the new rules, passengers who arrive from a destination not on the Government's travel corridors list will still need to enter self-isolation.
Dublin, Nov. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Gastrointestinal Drugs Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Drug Class; Route of Administration; Application; Distribution Channel, and Geography" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The market is expected to reach US$ 71,300.28 million in 2027 from US$ 49,043.38 million in 2019. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2020 to 2027. The report highlights trends prevailing in the market, and drivers and hindrances pertaining to the market growth. Based on drug class, the market is segmented in to acid neutralizers, antidiarrheal and laxatives, anti-inflammatory drugs, antiemetic and antinauseants, biologics, and others. In 2019, the acid neutralizers segment held the largest share of the market. The biologics segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The advent of biologics has had a significant impact on the management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Treatment with biologics has led to an improved quality of life for patients living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, with fewer admissions to the hospital and less side effects from corticosteroids. These are the most recently developed treatments for IBD. Biologic therapies are indicated for people with moderately to severely active disease who have not responded well to conventional therapy. Four of these agents (adalimumab, certolizumab pegol, golimumab and infliximab) target an inflammatory protein called tumor necrosis factor (TNF). Natalizumab and vedolizumab work by blocking certain types of white blood cells from getting into inflamed tissues. Biologics are beneficial for patients with gastrointestinal disorders who are not responding to conventional treatment. For instance, infliximab, which is derived from monoclonal antibodies to tumor necrosis factor is another modifier of the immune system's actions. Infliximab is given as a series of infusions by vein. This drug can be given to treat moderate to severe Crohn's disease that has not responded to other drugs, to treat people with fistulas, and to maintain response when the disease is difficult to control. Vedolizumab and natalizumab are drugs for people who have moderate to severe Crohn's diseasethat have not responded to TNF inhibitors or other immunomodulating drugs. With the increasing number of biologics in pipeline, the segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period. For instance, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited has five candidates in different phases for various GI indications. Sanofi; GlaxoSmithKline plc; Johnson and Johnson Services, Inc.; Bausch Health; AstraZeneca; Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited; AbbVie Inc.; Bayer AG; Celltrion Healthcare Co. , Ltd; and LEXICON PHARMACEUTICALS, INC. are among the leading companies operating in the gastrointestinal drugs market.
