Lessons from the pandemic’s superstar data scientist, Youyang Gu
He made a machine-learning model in a week and ran it daily on his laptop (it only took an hour), generating remarkably accurate covid-19 predictions.

“But, what would be unexpected is an infected J&J vaccine recipient then passing the infection on to someone else," Moore said. "That would be surprising.”

Links and numbers, please. No vaccine is 100% effective. If a million people get the vaccine and 5 get a "breakthrough" infection, is that a worry? This is like the J&J vaccine causing blood clots... literally a one in a million phenomenon.

The conspiracy industry is alive and well. 9/11 may have reached market saturation, but there' always a fresh one.

It's just that this one kills people.

Inside One Network Cashing In on Vaccine Disinformation

Michelle R. Smith and Johnatan Reiss, Associated Press

May 14, 2021

The couple in the website videos could be hawking any number of products.

"You're going to love owning the platinum package," Charlene Bollinger tells viewers, as a picture of a DVD set, booklets and other products flashes on screen. Her husband, Ty, promises a "director's cut edition," and over 100 hours of additional footage.

Click the orange button, his wife says, "to join in the fight for health freedom" — or more specifically, to pay $199 to $499 for the Bollingers' video series, "The Truth About Vaccines 2020."

The Bollingers are part of an ecosystem of for-profit companies, nonprofit groups, YouTube channels and other social media accounts that stoke fear and distrust of COVID-19 vaccines, resorting to what medical experts say is often misleading and false information.

An investigation by The Associated Press has found that the couple work closely with others prominent in the anti-vaccine movement — including Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his Children's Health Defense — to drive sales through affiliate marketing relationships.

The 60-Year-Old Scientific Screwup That Helped Covid Kill



Some of it is the tyranny of first approximations. Someone comes up with a rule of thumb and then everyone sticks with it even as evidence gathers that it is a generalisation based on a best guess.

The public has a long history of ignoring established scientific consensus that would 'save lives'.

Science has a long history of new, great ideas and innovations that initially met stiff opposition from peers.   Scientists are not immune to confirmatory bias that turns out to have negative consequences.

My view?  At least maverick, original scientists are not losing their jobs or finding themselves imprisoned or worse.

Excellent piece.  Thanks Lazy8.  It also provides much insight as to how health-damaging air pollution — small particulate matter — can remain suspended for long periods of time and as well travel great distances.

Excellent article. I'm sure every profession has a number that is not really based in reality but is nevertheless known to all.

The 60-Year-Old Scientific Screwup That Helped Covid Kill

All pandemic long, scientists brawled over how the virus spreads. Droplets! No, aerosols! At the heart of the fight was a teensy error with huge consequences.

Congratulations! Mine is Monday. Then I need to sandwich a flu shot in between the two covid ones.

I think the microchip is a subscription service for activation.

gleaned an article and gain of function is a broad category

tweak a virus to glow in the dark is considered a gain of function (or for possible good)

tweaking that can be used good or bad is considered dual use gain of function (where potential danger /harm is possible like modifying a virus to become more infectious)

maybe

Dear Kurt,

You really need to stop regurgitating every Right conspiracy theory.

Fauci did not fund the Wuhan Lab directly, nor did he (or the lab) conduct or approve any Gain-of-function testing.

Enjoy,

Sheeple #51Asw857Q2  

From your article.

Both the NIH and EcoHealth Alliance have denied that a grant to the Wuhan lab funded gain-of-function research, though a scientist told us that one paper published with assistance from the grant seems to describe techniques similar to gain-of-function.


The Chinese have prevented the USA from doing any real investigations into what happened regarding the origins and initial outbreak.  We do not know.  All that we have is the word of the CCP.   They say that the USA is responsible for the virus.  You can take them at their word.  I do not.  At this late point in time, we will likely never know the origins of this virus.

There is more doubt than certainty.  Fauci has many more issues than just his ties to Wuhan.

It's simple.  You trust Fauci.  I don't anymore.  You have your reasons, I have mine.
