there's the 60 minutes thing in the mid seventies too
vaccine technology is like anything else
the more we know, the better they get
there's always a learning curve
digitizing biology is allowing us to operate with super precision
the benefits for healthcare now and in the future are massive
two big things are going to continue to happen:
life span and health span will continue to increase
and the cost and availability will continue to improve
broadly speaking biotech is making a huge leap forward
i encourage everyone to take a look

Natural News et al.
How we got here with political and health misinformation: The case of “Hacker X” and Mike Adams
Ars Technica recently published a story about Hacker X, who helped Mike Adams expand his online empire of health fraud into an empire of fake news and political disinformation, thus intertwining health and political misinformation into the deadly combination we see now.
Over the years, I’ve written a lot about Mike Adams and his medical misinformation website Natural News, both here at SBM and elsewhere. Regular readers know that Mike Adams has long been one of the most prolific promoters of medical pseudoscience, misinformation, and conspiracy theories dating back nearly two decades. Over the last couple of weeks, Adams, who only occasionally makes the news, has found himself in the spotlight as a result of a story published earlier this month at Ars Technica by Ax Sharma entitled “Hacker X”—the American who built a pro-Trump fake news empire—unmasks himself. Basically, it’s the story of “Hacker X,” whose real name is Robert Willis, coming forward to describe how he had become the mastermind of one of the biggest fake news systems in the world but had decided to “come clean” and describe how he had used his skills to promote all manner of conspiracy theories and build a pro-Trump network of websites and social media. (...)

Since then, I and others have written a number of articles about Adams, including most recently his entirely expected pivot to spreading COVID-19 misinformation, such as claims that COVID-19 vaccines are leading to a “holocaust“, causing cancer, and promoting a “depopulation agenda“. (...)

Or they just make money by telling people how they can fix all of their kids' problems.  See: DeVos, Betsy

@Miami... the supposition that people vote in their best interests would suggest they know what's best for them.  In a world of constant, immediate feedback on "right and wrong", I think people will trust others to make those decisions for them, and they will believe that others who appear to agree on other topics will look after everything else.  The people who want the borders closed and are against abortion tell me that the vaccines might harm me in 2 decades...I trust they're looking out for me.

Rather than helping children’s immune systems, there is a large belief in the United States that the excess of mandatory vaccines is actually damaging them. In fact, in the past 20 years, U.S. statistics prove that children are experiencing doubled rates of Attention Deficit Disorder and learning disabilities, doubled rates of asthma, tripled rates of diabetes, and a rise in autism in every single state at the rate of 600 percent.A lot of kids are suffering and it is up to us as a Miami international school community to rule out any and all possibilities contributing to the rise in chronic diseases and disabilities for our students. Before we, as a school, mandate anything that could possibly be causing so much harm to our students, studies need to be urged to be conclusive as to whether common mandatory vaccinations lead to various common health disorders. Families and children should have medical freedom. Students should not be forced to endure these immunizations until there are more significant long-term studies and examinations of the various implications and side effects of these drugs.


is simply garbage. This isn't the kind of statement an educator makes, it is more in the realm of conspiracy nutcase. This isn't anymore valid than saying "we suspect frequencies close to 2.4MHz, so we should all disable channels 1,2 and 3 on our WiFi", or "We didn't see these things before Kraft took the red dye out of Mac-n-cheese, so we demand the return of artificial coloring in our Mac-n-cheese"  If that's the standards they are using for their 'education' programs, I worry about how good a job they are doing. Really - "rule out any and all possibilities contributing...." sheesh, wait until I really get going on my list of things that could be causing problems and should be eliminated or fully vetted (MANBIRD!). 


Edit:  I don't really worry, I think they are doing a crap job educating and it's probably a scam/grift to get money and spread their personal beliefs without being 'challenged' by science or facts or gravity and the round earth.

a little write up from back in 2019 might help to make some sense...

Meet Miami's Most Philanthropic Power Couple, David and Leila Centner

David and Leila Centner moved to Miami determined to make a change in the lives of women, children and teachers.

David_and_Leila_Centner.jpg

 

Long before they had their children and sold their Highway Toll Administration company for an undisclosed amount, David and Leila Centner were dedicated to charities that helped women and children in Ethiopia, Nicaragua and Harlem, an hour away from their previous home. “We’re drawn to causes that break the cycle of poverty,” says Leila. 

Yet, since 2017, when they decided to set roots in Miami (where David was born and raised), the bulk of their generosity has remained in our community. “When we moved here, one of our first orders of business was to find people in need and find a way to resourcefully contribute,” says David. “After we sold our company, we set aside an eight-figure sum strictly for donations. We invested that money and our goal is to donate 75 percent of the annual earnings.” 

The two also devote their time to nonprofits like the Lotus House shelter, where they recently opened the David and Leila Centner Culinary Center, which features a state-of-the-art kitchen and teaching program. This August, they will launch Centner Academy (centneracademy.com), a private, progressive language-immersion school in the Design District, where the curriculum (delivered in Mandarin for half of each day) has been developed to teach kids to think creatively and become problem solvers. “The core of our foundation is all about the happy child, mindfulness and helping shape conscious and connected little beings,” Leila explains. 

In addition to regular donations to the Arsht Center, JAFCO and Hebrew Academy, the Centners recently contributed $40 million in seed capital toward a real estate development in Edgewater designed to create affordable housing for teachers. “Our passion is to be the best we can be,” says David, “and contribute to humanity in big and small ways.”

India celebrates 1B vaccine doses, hopes to speed 2nd shots

NEW DELHI (AP) — India celebrated giving its billionth COVID-19 vaccine dose on Thursday, a hopeful milestone for the South Asian country where the delta variant fueled a crushing surge earlier this year and missteps initially held back its inoculation campaign.

About half of India’s nearly 1.4 billion people have received at least one dose while around 20% are fully immunized, according to Our World in Data. Many of those shots have come in just the past couple of months, after the rollout languished in the first half of the year amid vaccine shortages and problems with the system for rolling them out.

Medical Freedom from Mandated Vaccines

Your son or daughter may not be able to attend their first day of school until they are fully vaccinated. While these regulations were established to help protect all children, the amount of unknown risks associated with vaccinations will have you seriously second-guessing whether this policy should be upheld.

Rather than helping children’s immune systems, there is a large belief in the United States that the excess of mandatory vaccines is actually damaging them. In fact, in the past 20 years, U.S. statistics prove that children are experiencing doubled rates of Attention Deficit Disorder and learning disabilities, doubled rates of asthma, tripled rates of diabetes, and a rise in autism in every single state at the rate of 600 percent.

At CA we believe in health freedom. We know that every child and family at our school is unique. There is no one size fits all to vaccines. This is why we follow the Florida law and allow our parents to complete a medical or religious exemption form to opt out of the school vaccination program. If you need any support in understanding the process further, please complete our contact us form and we will further assist you with this process.

The Road to Hitler is Paved with… Masks and Vaccines?
The next time a healthcare worker or educator is attacked by a “freedom-loving” anti-vaxxer, it’s reasonable to wonder who convinced the assailant that life-saving public health measures are in fact a ruse to pave the way for the next Hitler. Warning: This article contains offensive images about the Holocaust and sexual assault.
