Hong Kong — echoes — Organizational Structure Dictates Outcome

Yon-Genre mind-dump, sans edit The communists kicked me out of Hong Kong in 2020. Then the CCP pandemic blanketed the world and I read tons of books in 2020. I even re-read 1984, Animal Farm, Lord of the Flies, and others in genre. Those books are amazingly “now.” (I did not re-read Atlas Shrugged. Maybe I should.) Hong Kong: I was in just over 100 of the major protests in Hong Kong. Also witnessed many smaller actions. See the image above: I saw things like this THOUSANDS of times just ...

Fauci: Vaccinated people shouldn't dine indoors or go to the theater quite yet

Dr. Anthony Fauci directs the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Alex Wong/Getty Images Fauci says even if you're fully vaccinated, indoor dining and theater-going should be off-limits. The number of coronavirus cases in the US remains high. As more people get vaccinated and cases drop, it may become safe to do things indoors with crowds again. Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories.

A single genetic test can identify the presence and cause of mismatch repair deficiency

Researchers have developed a new integrated genetic/epigenetic DNA-sequencing protocol known as MultiMMR that can identify the presence and cause of mismatch repair (MMR) deficiency in a single test from a small sample of DNA in colon, endometrial, and other cancers.

New, simplified genetic test effectively screens for hereditary cancers

Researchers have developed a new integrated genetic/epigenetic DNA-sequencing protocol known as MultiMMR that can identify the presence and cause of mismatch repair (MMR) deficiency in a single test from a small sample of DNA in colon, endometrial, and other cancers. This alternative to complex, multi-step testing workflows can also determine causes of MMR deficiency often missed by current clinical tests. Their results are presented in The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics, published by Elsevier...

I volunteered to test the Moderna coronavirus vaccine. Here's what the side effects were like, and why I want my experience to give people hope.

Elle Hardy. Elle Hardy Journalist Elle Hardy is taking part in a phase-three trial of Moderna's mRNA-1273 vaccine, which was just approved in the UK and has been shown to be 94.5% effective. The UK government has ordered 17 million doses of Moderna's shot, but it's unlikely to roll out before March. The shot was approved for use in the US in December. After a slight reaction to the two doses, Hardy said she was certain she didn't receive a placebo. "The side effects were a little unpleasan...

3 coronavirus vaccines so far seem to prevent COVID-19. Here's how their efficacy compares to vaccines for flu, measles, and more.

A healthcare worker injects a patient with the Pfizer and BioNTech coronavirus vaccine during the phase 3 trial in Turkey in October. Dogukan Keskinkilic/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images AstraZeneca reported last week that its coronavirus vaccine candidate was 70% effective, on average, in preventing COVID-19 in clinical trials. Moderna and Pfizer's vaccine candidates were found to be 94% and 95% effective, respectively.  The chart below shows how the efficacy of those vaccine candidates co...

MMR vaccine could protect against COVID-19

The measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine has been theorized to provide protection against COVID-19. In a new study published in mBio, an open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology, researchers provide further proof of this by showing that mumps IgG titers, or levels of IgG antibody, are inversely correlated with severity in recovered COVID-19 patients previously vaccinated with the MMR II vaccine produced by Merck

How the coronavirus vaccine development compares to other shots in history

The invention of the bifurcated needle allowed more efficient vaccine delivery. Carol Smiljan/NurPhoto via Getty Images Vaccine research and development has improved massively throughout history. Nearly 200 years passed between the creation of the first successful vaccine and the eventual eradication of smallpox. The influenza virus was isolated in a lab in 1933, and the first flu vaccine wasn't licensed until 1945. Coronavirus vaccine research began just a few months after the first case ...

Disinfo As A Public Health Crisis: The Parallels Between COVID-19 Misinformation And The 2019 Measles Outbreak

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. It is excerpted from “The Hype Machine: How Social Media Disrupts Our Elections, Our Economy, and Our Health — And How We Must Adapt.”  In March 2020, a deliberate misinformation campaign spread fear among the American public by propagating the false story that a nationwide quarantine to contain the coronavirus pandemic was imminent. The National Security Council had to publicly disavow the story. And that wasn’t the onl...

How the media helped fuel the anti-vaxx movement

Investigative journalist Brian Deer has published a new book on anti-vaxx ringleader, Andrew Wakefield. Discredited in the science community, Wakefield turned to the media to share his anti-vaxx propaganda. The disbarred doctor fabricated results and filed for his own vaccine patents, Deer reports. Michael Gershon is a professor of pathology and cell biology at Columbia University. Dubbed "the father of neurogastroenterology," his classic book, "The Second Brain," introduced the world to the e...

smarter networks through better narratives

Leadership in a networked world is making our networks and communities smarter so they are able to make better-informed decisions. In early 2020 New Brunswick’s Education Minister, Dominic Cardy, worked very hard to make his network smarter. “When Canada’s chief public health official, Dr. Theresa Tam, was talking about there being no need to “panic,” and raising alarms instead about the internet-wacko fringe targeting Canadians of Chinese descent with racist comments on social media in late Jan...

Andrew Wakefield uses coronavirus pandemic to push discredited anti-vaccine claims

Andrew Wakefield, the disgraced British former doctor, is using the coronavirus pandemic to promote his claims that vaccines are unsafe as he calls for widespread protests against their use in America. Since being struck off the British medical register over a discredited study suggesting a possible link between the MMR vaccine and autism, Mr Wakefield has become a prominent figure within America’s anti-vaccine movement. Now, with the outbreak of Covid-19 in the US, Mr Wakefield has been appeari...
