Faces of Vaccine Denialism
Faces of Vaccine Denialism.jpg
denialism ne demek - moreya
İnkarcılığa rahatsız gerçeği ile ilgili önlemek için bir yol olarak gerçeği inkar seçmektir. - Eivind
I'm not an anti-vaxer, but my moderate distrust of flu shots is influenced by the fact that of the couple of people I know who regularly get them, one developed Guillain-Barré syndrome within a week of receiving the shot. The CDC says the correlation is negligible, but my personal study indicates it's closer to 50%. :) - Ken Morley
I think you just highlighted an important problem. Lots of "personal studies," often based on news items and dodgy sites, end up with numbers like that, or worse :) - Eivind from Android
thanks :))) - moreya
Or maybe the CDC is lying to us. ;) - Ken Morley
Sure. More like Center for Mind Control, amirite? :) - Eivind from Android
You can definitely get Guillain-Barré from the flu shot, but it's like 1:1 million (EDIT: sorry, 1:100,000) , so I haven't seen any cases yet. - Victor Ganata
It took him about a year to mostly get back to normal. He never did regain his fine motor control completely. - Ken Morley
correlation does not imply causation. the flu shot isn't that likely to have caused it, no matter how awful his suffering. - Big Joe Silence
There was a statistically-significant increase in risk though, but that was the 1976 swine flu vaccine. http://www.cdc.gov/flu... We don't really know the mechanism. But, yeah, Guillain-Barré can certainly happen even if you aren't vaccinated. - Victor Ganata
I mean, you can get Guillain-Barré after getting the flu—it's probably the exact same mechanism—but who really knows? - Victor Ganata
It's possible my sample size was not large enough to be statistically significant (n=2). Your results may vary. :) - Ken Morley
I've gotten a flu shot twice, so I'm 100% sure it has no side effects. :) I also got the HPV vaccine with no side effects, so it's also 100% safe. - Heather
I'm pretty sure my n is somewhere between 1,000 to 10,000 by now, but it's definitely not powered enough to see Guillain-Barré. I'm just taking the CDC at its word. - Victor Ganata
at the risk of being classified as your friendly vaccine denialist... I suggest you read CDC http://www.cdc.gov/vaccine... and then search for official Finnish news on Pandemrix effect, ie. gooogle for _pandemrix finland site:yle.fi_ - непростые коротышки
first GSK simply denied effect goes above (their) statistic expectations, then they denied scale of effect, then they denied that most vulnerable between 4 and 19... then they denied those who "reported too late"... and then they used Finnish state as last-line "insurance" for damage over their 30 million EUR fund (in 2011 official number had been 92, but official confirmation of link had been in 2012 only). - непростые коротышки

Conspiracy 58 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...
"Conspiracy 58 (Swedish: Konspiration 58 or KSP58) is a Swedish mockumentary from 2002, produced by Sveriges Television, the Swedish public broadcaster. The plot of the film is that the 1958 FIFA World Cup in Sweden didn't really take place, but was faked and exists only as forged television and radio coverage in a conspiracy between American and Swedish television, the CIA and FIFA as part of the Cold War. In the film it is said that Sweden did not have the economic or technical resources to actually host such a large event. In the plot, the American motive for doing this was to test the effectiveness of televised propaganda. When the film originally aired, the audience was not told in advance that it was a mockumentary, giving the impression that Conspiracy 58 was a regular documentary film." - Eivind from Bookmarklet
"A large amount of "evidence" is presented. For example, there is analysis of television recordings of the matches, where houses can be seen in the background that never actually stood there. The film also analyzes how the shadows of the players in the field were falling, and were angled in a way that is not possible in Sweden given the position of the sun at the time.

Study finds people would rather electrocute themselves than spend 15 minutes alone with their thoughts. - Seriously, Science? | DiscoverMagazine.com - http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/serious...
Study finds people would rather electrocute themselves than spend 15 minutes alone with their thoughts. - Seriously, Science? | DiscoverMagazine.com
"This study–published in the tip top journal Science, no less–found that when participants were asked to spend 6 to 15 minutes in a room by themselves with no distractions, most had a very difficult time doing it. In fact, the authors found that “simply being alone with their own thoughts for 15 min was apparently so aversive that it drove many participants to self-administer an electric shock that they had earlier said they would pay to avoid.” (Unsurprisingly, more men than women chose to shock themselves.)" - Eivind from Bookmarklet
Zap. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
weird sample group. i don't mind being alone with my thoughts, it's what we did before electronic toys were everywhere (and i'm including television and recorded music here). WTF is wrong with ppl who can't bear to examine the contents of their own minds? and i say this as someone with major depression and panic disorder. really, what's sitting in their heads that's this awful, or are they just THAT easily bored? - Big Joe Silence
I was wondering why this sounded familiar - is this a meta study? I don't find it particularly surprising - most people who aren't guests of the penal system are rarely without some sort of stimuli to occupy their minds. Something to look at, smell, touch, eat - a room full of colors, pictures, textures. Ambient noise from your home and environment. There's a reason why solitary confinement is so punishing. - Jennifer Dittrich
They also studied college students not people of various ages. It was 100 people and they excluded one guy who shocked himself a ridiculous amount of times because it was "weird." - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
so basically the study was a load of crap. - Big Joe Silence
"To see whether the difficulty with “just thinking” is distinctive to college students, in study 9 we recruited community participants at a farmer’s market and a local church. The participants ranged in age from 18 to 77 (median age=48.0 years)." And it's not necessarily "wrong" to remove outliers. - Eivind from Android
I've spent hours staring at the ceiling and just thinking. It's a nice break from doing stuff all the freaking time. No comment on study, just throwing that out here. :) - Jenny H. from Android
I can spend 15 minutes alone thinking about electrocution. - Mistaken Identity

But Cafe Karafuneya in Kyoto, itself around for over 40 years, is known for something that has nothing to do with the city's rich past. It serves parfaits. All sorts of them.

As the internet is forever here's a portion of my eulogy yesterday so mom lives forever in another place.

For the benefit of those of you who did not grow up in our full house the first thing you might not know about Barbara is that she was wicked smart. A graduate of UC Davis, a voracious reader, first chair cello in her younger days, and the sole viewer of PBS's Masterpiece Theater. There was no newspaper editor who could get a mistake in grammar or punctuation past her red pen and the articles final resting place of shame on the kitchen refrigerator. - Steve C
But like all true superheroes she used her powers only for good channeling her talents to help the needy, the whiny, and the masses to be molded, aka her children. While being a supermom has come to be a trendy topic I would like to imagine that if a Tiger Mom walked up to our mom, Barbara would simply slap her across the face and turn and walk away shaking her head. Alas since no... more... - Steve C
There are no gang bangers, druggies, or arrests in the family. There is no one on the pole except Diana and her ballet barre. There is only a large collection of kind people plus me who is pretty. - Steve C
And we all got here because of mom. Because she was deathly allergic to nuts but made peanut butter sandwiches for everyone for 15 straight years. Because she was willing to drive from morning till night to get 9 kids through the infinite maze of school, band, and sports. Because she was not only at every baseball and soccer game but more than likely the team mom and scorekeeper.... more... - Steve C
When Genevieve passed away mom lost 1/9th of her heart, and she said I was the strong one. But she is the one who carried on caring for the eight of us. It is a shame to lose her when I am all of 2 weeks into this parenting thing but she gave all she was, and all she had to all of us, and that alone within me is worth more than the advice of a thousand tiger moms. - Steve C
Thanks. - Steve C

"How should Argentina fans feel about all this, given the disappointment they’ve experienced in World Cups past and the hopes they’ve pinned on Messi this year? So far in the 2014 tournament, Messi has been erasing whatever gap there was between his Barcelona stats and his Argentina stats, with style. And that gap was never really as big as it appeared. Since the 2010 World Cup, Messi has scored 19 goals and six assists for Argentina in 22 games (.9 goals per game and .3 assists per game, compared to 1.1 and .4 for Barca). For shooting/assisting efficiency, he has scored .199 GAA per game for Argentina versus .262 for Barca. He also has better defensive stats for Argentina, so even if there are persistent differences, it’s quite possible it has to do with style and Messi’s role on each team rather than the quality of his play. And 22 games is a tiny sample. Even so, these stats are perfectly consistent with the argument that Messi is the best footballer on earth: That .199 GAA is... more... - Eivind from Bookmarklet

Man bends door of burning SUV to rescue locked-in driver - San Jose Mercury News
"A Minnesota man credits "pure adrenaline" for giving him the strength to bend the door of a burning SUV to rescue its driver. Bob Renning, 52, of Woodbury, Minn., said he could hear Michael Johannes, 51, of Minneapolis trying to escape through the passenger side door as the 2006 Chevy Trailblazer filled with smoke Sunday evening on Interstate 35W near New Brighton. "He was kicking and beating the window trying to break it open from the inside," Renning said. "I knew I didn't have a lot of time." Renning was southbound on I-35W when he saw in his mirrors flames shooting out from beneath an SUV six or seven car-lengths behind him. He slowed down to get Johannes' attention and they pulled over at the same time, with Renning stopping about 250 feet in front of the burning vehicle. Johannes, who just bought the Trailblazer last week, said he knew he was in trouble when his brakes started to fail out and the vehicle began filling up with smoke as he drove down the freeway at 65 mph.
