I cant understand fox trying to kill their audience
From when they lifted school restrictions to today
The one constant lesson in every country seems to be, dont fucking rush it
Seriously, just prosecute unvaxxed HC workers who dont have a health exemption
FNC's studios should be firebombed.
My kids start school here in FL in 20 days and I have this growing feeling I’m just going to be sending them there to get COVID and hope for the best. It’s not a great feeling.
I’m in middle Georgia and feel the exact same way.
Hopefully they approve an even younger age group for the vaccine in the not too distant future
Part of the confusion here seems to be that there are multiple definitions of gain of function. I think that's why Paul read directly from the NIH's definition of gain of function.
So assuming the definition you have here is correct, Fauci's defense would be: Gain of function is an increase in transmissibility method, speed, and magnitude within the same animal model, and that's NOT what was happening in Wuhan. In Wuhan they were making animal viruses more transmissible to humans, which does not fit that definition.
That is my interpretation
I can’t speak for either of them, but I can say i think senator Paul is a rather shortsighted individual
my brother sent me some file Paul’s office put together documenting all the “wasteful spending” the government carried out over the previous fiscal year, one of the projects noted was a initiative geared towards making insects palatable for nutrition purposes
I think this is actually a pretty useful exercise because in the event of catastrophe bugs are basically a giant untapped source of protein
Yea as I recall Paul puts together an annual list of wasteful things the government spent money on the previous year. Some of it doesn't seem at all wasteful, while other things look like absurd things to spend a dollar on, much less $800K or whatever. This is probably what you are referencing:
$36 million spent on studying why stress makes hair turn gray, more than $1 million spent studying whether people will eat ground-up bugs, and more than $3 million spent interviewing San Franciscans about their edible cannabis use
He had other examples as well: $8.62 billion was spent in Afghanistan on counternarcotics efforts, more than $37 million was spent helping deal with truant Filipino youth, and more than $3 million was spent on sending Russians to American community colleges for a “gap year.” More than $1 million was spent walking lizards on a treadmill, nearly $200,000 was spent studying how people cooperate while playing e-sport video games, and more than $2 million on developing a wearable headset to track eating behaviors.
fuck eric clapton
It's such a shitty situation.
I'll tell you that one thing at the heart of my organization's decision to not mandate the vaccine: labor shortages. Retention rates of MAs, RNs, lab techs, etc right now is super low. Really can't afford to have anyone else quit. I'm already probably going to have to show up to fill in some urgent care shit in which i might have to room my own patients
Too bad he lived
Dr. Versalovic adds that over the past few days, hospitalizations have increased, too. Versalovic says it’s a misconception that children don’t contract the virus or become very ill from it.
“Roughly 10 percent of those who are diagnosed with COVID-19 require hospitalization," Dr. Versalovic said.
Currently, Texas Children’s has about 15 pediatric in-patients being treated for COVID-19
Good thing Abbott got those dang masks outta the schools.
work has a 21% vaccination rate lol
they addressed it at the monthly plant meeting and encouraged people to get vaccinated while providing zero incentives
the mask mandate at the plants is lifted if a plant hits 75% or on august 15th. whichever comes first
can't wait for a few days off work when there is an outbreak here
10% require hospx? Seems like that would be a bigger story.
I demand WFH at that point. Why should you have to expose yourself to a dangerous virus because your coworkers are idiots
Not if you need your wage slaves back in office so you can feel good about being the boss again
Almost 50M children under 12. Seems like we could care about protecting them. Oh well.
yeah there is no way that is true, even taking into account how many kids who have covid are likely asymptomatic and may not actually get tested or become confirmed as having covid. Even if it was 5% that would be a major, major story. I don’t even think the number is 10% across all age groups which includes very old people where that number is significantly higher.
Edit: rounding and using the CDC numbers of 33.7 million who’ve gotten covid (likely a good bit higher with asymptomatic who never got tested) the number they have for those hospitalized is 2.3 million. So a little less than 7%. Even if you pretend that there aren’t likely double or more covid cases including those who didn’t get tested, that’s still far less than 10% and we know it’s far less in kids than a full group including senior citizens.
It could be 10% cases that they see? Which would skew the numbers, but if you're that sick to go to Children's you're probably getting admitted.
It says in the article they only have 15 covid pediatric patients in the hospital. I’m assuming they’re meaning it’s 10% of a very small number of patients that they see and I’m guessing that’s in patients with symptoms enough to have to go to the hospital.
ok if they’re saying 10% of children who go to the hospital to get tested get admitted, I could believe that. The number is definitely not 0. Some kids need hospitalization and some do die. I just think we need to be careful to present statistics properly because even people who did listen to health experts, are following guidelines and have been vaccinated are struggling with how difficult it is to get honest information from anywhere at this point.
i would if i could. i'm looking forward to no masks at work. hopefully these idiots get what's coming to them
It's been well established after Sandy Hook that the US is cool with putting kids through the grinder
The easiest thing the 40% could do to protect their families and their neighbors would be to get a stick in the arm. But they won't even do that. Makes the prospects for our nation realigning our approach to healthcare/safety nets/etc. even dimmer. We just don't care about our fellow Americans (in general).
Piedmont Healthcare in the Atlanta area made the same decision a week ago. I'm sure they'll lose some employees and that might strain some of the system, but good god we need to see more of this if we aren't going to pay people to get vaccinated.
Yeah its pretty click bait on my behalf. I should have included the 15 patients part. Edited to include that. It’s just showing there is an uptick in kids getting sick and hospitalized for it. Also you all have malware now.
The CEO at Cox Health in Missouri is under quite a bit of scrutiny for making this same decision and some tweets he’s made.
He's not short-sighted, he's a lying piece of shit who has blood on his hands.
Ohio Health making it mandatory as well. Think employees have until end of August to get the shot
hey we care about kids- we’re about to cut childhood poverty in half
for 6 months*
AZ = ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine
AZ quite a bit less effective vs. Delta variant if only received one dose. Effectiveness was for persons at least 16 years of age who had symptomatic Covid-19 caused by the alpha or delta variant.
we’re cutting the other half the next six months
Eyyy Sturgis is coming up again!! And its fallout has been studied back and front!
Good news, my office is reverting to WFH lol thanks guys my immune system over the last week truly thanks your foresight
Viruses aside, my back and hips are going to sing the praises of working from home for longer. I bought an Uplift desk in March and it has added years to my life.
I dread having to go sit at a stiff wooden desk again for several days per week.
If our government wants to study something useful, it should be on the effects of sitting for prolonged periods. Office workers need to be enabled to move around throughout the day.
