David & Christina Show Episode 29 – First Look at COVID app plus interviews with Andrew Nebel MBE and The Great Leslie Band

Welcome to the David & Christina Show.

David gives you an exclusive look at the new NHS Covid 19 app and a potential flaw into it. He also goes into details of the new rules in the Corona Diaries. There is also a positive talking point about the importance of comedy during this pandemic.

We will also be playing an exclusive new single from the Herron Brothers called ‘High Risk’.

Christina has an updated interview with Andrew Nebel MBE. The PPG Campaign to stop the closure of St Mary’s surgery in Stamford is gathering momentum. MP’s are involved as is Lincolnshire CCG and hundreds are signing up to our petition ‘Better Primary Care – Save St Mary’s.’

We also interview The Great Leslie Band which features front man and former guest of the show, Ollie Trevers. He will be joined by Guillermo Campoy, better known as ‘G.’ The Great Leslie Band are a London-based alternative rock band, combining raw vocals with a rock n roll influence to produce a sound that will leave you wanting more. Following their tour in the South of France last year, The Great Leslie plan to share their sound around the world throughout 2020.

Hope you enjoy the show.

Khan Academy app Preview

To produce an app that says that you can learn everything is a pretty bold statement to make. You may think it’s an alternative to Apples iTunes U which does something similar, however they are more for the advance stages of education. With Khan academy, it allows for more younger grades of subjects.

The main subjects from the front page are maths, science and finance with various grades, assignments and videos, hints and tips to help you through. There are various partners that have exclusive content as well as help with applying for college and interviews.

I’ve been working through various Maths subjects and exercises from grades 6 and 7. These exercises consists of if you get the first one right or the first two right or if you get the first one wrong, you would learn and make the next five answers right.

You will get points at the end of each exercise with the fun, green creature as a logo. It is great to get back into maths and you can use the space to work out your answers. However, on the graph questions, I couldn’t answer because they didn’t show it which is a shame.

What I would like to see in the next few weeks if the range of exercises from the different subjects and hopefully get a few updates in. This potentially could be brilliant but let’s wait and see.
