    It’s just the flu, bro. Open up the country for work! There are a few things I am watching today: 1. Countries have made their curves too flat and there is too much social distancing. This means that the probability of the virus starting up again is high. This has happened in SK and Wuhan. The government is putting too many roadblocks in front of healthy people (who are better off catching it now than later). Only the vulnerable should have a CDC recommendation to social distance. Remember the science of voluntary health-differentiated social distancing (HSD). 2. Civil liberties -...

To boil it down: a video was posted, then it was censored. Removed. Deleted. By Vimeo. On March 4. Bang. Why? Because you're not supposed to know what was discussed in the video. It might give you a wrong idea. You might infer something you shouldn't. You can't handle making up your own mind. You have to feed at the...

    Neo-Con Republican strategist and Never Trumper Rick Wilson has suggested that anti-vaxxers should be put in re-education camps and have their children taken away.Yes, really.Wilson was responding to an NBC News story about how people who question the safety of vaccines are now taking their fight “offline” due to mass censorship by the likes of Facebook and are “harassing doctors and private citizens.”  “Anti-vaxxers are a scourge and a strong argument for re-education camps, the immediate seizure of their property, and putting their children into protective custody,” responded Wilson.https://twitter.com/TheRickWilson/status/1202978781000065025?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202978781000065025&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newswars.com%2Fnever-trumper-rick-wilson-suggests-putting-anti-vaxxers-in-re-education-camps%2F

    Blue lips. Blackened skin. Blood leaking from noses and mouths. Coughing fits so intense they ripped muscles. Crippling headaches and body pains that felt like torture. These were the symptoms of a disease that was first recorded in Haskell County, Kansas, one hundred years ago this week, in January 1918. From Kansas the illness spread quickly: not only throughout the U.S. but across the world. Eventually (if misleadingly) it became known as Spanish flu. And while its effects on the body were awful, the mortality rate was truly terrifying. During a pandemic that lasted two years from its outbreak in...
  • After Years of Common Core, Betsy DeVos Announces ‘Devastating’ Results

    11/03/2019 4:14:51 AM PST · by DOC44 · 66 replies
    Years after Common Core made its debut in many state education systems, the disastrous long-term results of the program are finally being seen. The students’ reading assessment paints a grim picture of educational readiness, with tested fourth and eighth graders failing to best the previous test’s results. This year’s results were only marginally better than those from 1992. The mathematics scores show the most damning results — an upward trend until the year 2015, when the momentum seemed to grind to a halt. Although there were double-digit gains since the ’90s, fourth graders only managed to score a single point...

    The BBC's highly-anticipated sci-fi drama, The War Of The Worlds, has dropped it's first trailer. Veering away from the 2005 Hollywood version - which starred Tom Cruise, was helmed by Steven Spielberg and was set in the present day - the three-part series takes place in Edwardian England, harking more accurately back to the source text. The novel - written by H. G. Wells and published in 1897 - sees martians, in the form of giant, spindly-legged machines - attack Earth, on hunt for resources.

    It took 400,000 Nasa employees and contractors to put Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon in 1969 – but only one man to spread the idea that it was all a hoax. His name was Bill Kaysing. It began as “a hunch, an intuition”, before turning into “a true conviction” – that the US lacked the technical prowess to make it to the moon (or, at least, to the moon and back). Kaysing had actually contributed to the US space programme, albeit tenuously: between 1956 and 1963, he was an employee of Rocketdyne, a company that helped to...

We just wait ’til somebody gets sick and then we talk about who’s going to pay for the treatment and how they’re going to be treated.

    Researchers at University of New Mexico researchers are working on a vaccine they hope could prevent Alzheimer's disease, reports CBS Albuquerque affiliate KRQE-TV. UNM's Health and Sciences Department Associate Professor Kiran Bhaskar, who's been passionate about studying the disease for the last decade, says the work started with an idea in 2013. "I would say it took about five years or so to get from where the idea generated and get the fully functioning working vaccine," he said. Bhaskar and his team started to test the vaccine on mice. It has not yet been shown if it works in people....

    A cruise ship had to be quarantined in St Lucia's port after a case of measles was confirmed on board. Health officials docked the cruise ship, which was carrying 300 passengers, on Monday after discovering a female crew member had contracted the disease. According to NBC, officials declined to name the ship, but Sgt Victor Theodore from St Lucia's Coast Guard said it was called the 'Freewinds' - the same name as a 440-foot ship owned and operated by the Church of Scientology.

    A significant new study out of Denmark last week confirmed once again that there is no evidence the MMR (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccine causes autism. In fact, just the opposite seems to be the case: children who received the shot were seven per cent less likely to develop autism than those who did not. If the results of that study don’t do anything to slow the metastasizing of anti-vaccine sentiment, including in North America, you might find an explanation in last week’s other big news event: the opening of the annual SXSW conference in Austin, Texas, which began as a...

    Measles, a virus that invades the nose and throat, causing fever, cough and phlegm, is one of the most contagious pathogens on the planet. Before 1963, it infected some four million people every year in the United States alone. Nearly 50,000 of them would land in the hospital with complications like severe diarrhea, pneumonia and brain inflammation that sometimes resulted in lifelong disability. Of the 500 or so patients who died from these complications each year, most were children younger than 5. Until recently, those numbers were a matter of history. The measles vaccine, which was introduced to the United...

    Joshua Nerius became privy to his parents’ anti-vaxxer convictions only after he contracted measles himself at 30 years old. Now he’s speaking out against parents who hold similar beliefs, calling them “people who want to spread fear.” What began as a rash and high fever in the spring of 2016 was later discovered to be none other than measles— a highly contagious, and often life-threatening disease that’s become increasingly rare since the introduction of a vaccine in 1963. It was only after an emergency room doctor told Nerius his condition strongly resembled measles that Nerius asked his mother if he’d...

    An unvaccinated 6-year-old boy in Oregon spent 57 days in a hospital, including 47 days in the intensive care unit, and racked up almost $1 million in medical costs after being diagnosed with tetanus, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control. The boy was Oregon's first case of tetanus in almost 30 years, according to the CDC, citing the Oregon Health Authority. Tetanus is caused by bacteria found in dirt that can enter the body through breaks in the skin, and vaccines are the best way to prevent it, per the CDC. The child was cut...

    An unvaccinated 6-year-old boy from Oregon has racked up more than $800,000 in medical bills after almost dying in the state's first case of pediatric tetanus in 30 years. The unidentified boy contracted tetanus - a serious infection caused by bacteria entering a wound - through a cut on his forehead while playing outside on a farm in 2017. It was the first time a child in Oregon had been diagnosed with rare disease in more than 30 years, according to a report on the case by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Thursday.

    Cases of measles have reached a 20-year high in several New York counties amid an outbreak that threatens to reach epidemic proportions, experts say. At least 160 people have been infected by the virus, which typically strikes children, in New York and unusual outbreaks have been reported internationally. The worst affected areas so far are Rockland County - where 105 cases have been reported - and an Orthodox Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, where at least 55 have been infected. Meanwhile, 25 other states have reported outbreaks, with numbers climbing particularly high in Oregon and Washington.

Meanwhile, the vaccine scandal breaks out, a sign of a lack of moral values in Chinese society. Vaccinating young people in the spirit, helping them discover their faith, would help Chinese society. The considerations of a priest blogger.Beijing (AsiaNews) - The Chinese authorities have been eliminating visible Christian signs, crosses and engravings for several months due to a campaign of "synicization". This adds to the ban on meetings even in summer, with young people under the age of 18, who are also...

    HOUSTON — It’s looking as if 2017 could become the year when the anti-vaccination movement gains ascendancy in the United States and we begin to see a reversal of several decades in steady public health gains. The first blow will be measles outbreaks in America. Measles is one of the most contagious and most lethal of all human diseases. A single person infected with the virus can infect more than a dozen unvaccinated people, typically infants too young to have received their first measles shot. Such high levels of transmissibility mean that when the percentage of children in a community...
