30 y.o. Candice Davis from Philadelphia has been hospitalized in Colorado Springs #Colorado due to COVID since August 17. The virus caused blood clotting requiring amputation of both arms and legs. #TheySurvivedCovid koaa.com/news/covering-… Image
"She hurts, she's going through it, she beats herself up," said her mom. "She cries more than all of us, but she's the strongest link between the both of us because of what happened to her." Image
In August, Paige Davis says her adult son and daughter who live in Philadelphia both tested positive for COVID. Her son was vaccinated and recovered. Her daughter Candice was not and the virus hit her especially hard.

We were #live during a press conference in #Boulder #Colorado yesterday afternoon for the announcement that mother and immigrant rights advocate Ingrid Encalada Latorre was granted a 1 year stay of removal.
twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
Rev. David Schwartz opened the conference. He is the lead minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder where Encalada Latorre claimed sanctuary for 4+ years. Because of the stay, she can now leave the church to go on hikes, take her children to school, etc. Image
Although this is positive news for Encalada Latorre, and her family and friends, there is more work to be done. Encalada Latorre and her team plan on trying to reopen her case, which a Jefferson County district judge refused to do in August 2017. Image

OTD in 1959, after taking a shot from Andy Bathgate in the nose, Jacques Plante leaves the game & returns wearing a mask.

This is a (mega) thread to Plante & to the mask wearers who followed. Some great goalies/masks do not appear & some appear more than once.

Political prisoner #EricKing has his first evidentiary hearing this morning in #Colorado Federal Court for a charge while in prison for allegedly "assaulting" a Bureau of Prisons officer in 2018. According to King, he was the one who was assaulted that day by a prison guard.
Presiding Judge William J. Martinez made a motion prior to the hearing that it would be closed to the public because the court "became aware of information which causes it to be concerned of a potential disruption of the hearing."
The Judge admitted on record that U.S. Marshals and others looked at social media accounts and saw discussions that people were going to be at the hearing. He didn't share specific details or say if there was talk of a "disruption" on social media.

Well, imagine my shock that school districts in Colorado requiring masks have lower COVID transmission. How much lower if they also used good ventilation, HEPA filters, outdoor lunch, etc. (1/x)

From @CDPHE data; Article by @johningold in @ColoradoSun
coloradosun.com/2021/09/23/cor…
2/ @CDPHE data via @johningold showing COVID cases for school-age kids in #Colorado districts w/ mask mandates (blue) are lower than those w/o mandates (orange). Yellow bar shows in-person school return.

But 6-17 yr cases very different at county level, so these wrap together.
3/ More data from @CDPHE via @johningold. Overall, COVID cases in 0-5 & 6-11 yrs age groups (no vax approval yet) still hovering near their peak levels as a Colorado state average.

Presenting my 1rst article w/ @reason

Most Opioid Settlement Funds Aren't Going to Addiction Services

It doesn't work that way
reason.com/2021/09/21/mos… #opioids #health #healthcare #drugs #addiction #medicine #disability #opioidcrisis #chronicpain #MedTwitter #news
Americans take at face value the claim opioid settlements will provide justice for victims & necessary funding for addiction treatment

Despite what media & politicians may say,
that isnt how this works
reason.com/2021/09/21/mos… #HarmReduction @maiasz @filth_filler @ZachWritesStuff
A repeat of the largest settlement in US history,

the 1998 Tobacco Master Settlement in which 98% of the funds ended up in states general budgets

#Vaccines are Available

#MonoclonalAntibody Rx is Available

Vulnerable Profiles are Known

But #Democrats are Pushing VACCINE MANDATES

Why?

#Maine
#Washington
#Oregon
#NewMexico
#Michigan
#Minnesota
#Wisconsin
#Nevada
#Iowa
#NewHampshire
#Colorado
#Pennsylvania
#Virginia
Democrats say we need the VACCINE MANDATEs so we can Re-Open

But many places have been OPEN

And it is only the Democrats that are talking about SHUTTING DOWN again this Winter

So...
Maybe the Vaccine Mandates are NOT about the Virus

Maybe the Democrats are playing a Different Game

Maybe they are looking to Shift Blame for the Damage done by Shutdowns

Maybe they want to Blame the Un-Vaccinated for their Gross Mismanagement

Two years ago #ElijahMcClain had a deadly encounter with police officers and paramedics in Aurora #Colorado. Today, three of the officers and two paramedics were charged in connection to his death.
The charges handed down by a grand jury to each of the five defendants are one charge of manslaughter, one charge of criminally negligent homicide, and various assault charges.
On August 23, 2019, McClain, a 23-year-old Black man, was walking home from a convenience store listening to music through his headphones and dancing, while also wearing a ski mask for warmth since he was anemic. Someone who saw him thought he looked suspicious and called 9-1-1.

"Covid-19 vaccines are still “stunningly effective” despite fears that immunity may dwindle over time"

cnbc.com/2021/09/01/are…

Stunningly Effective! 🤪
Image
Unvaxxed @joerogan gets Covid and recovers after early treatment, likely developing superior natural immunity. "I feel great. I really only had one bad day."

Yet the vaccine useful idiots illogically use this to denegrate effective re-purposed drugs, and to shame the unvaxxed.
@joerogan The goal posts are still moving:

"The vaccines prevent infection!"

"Well, ok, but breakthrough infections are rare and mild!"

"Well, ok, but vaccines prevent hospitalizations and death!"

And now:
"Well, ok, but vaccines reduce the risk of Long Covid"

fyi Colorado,

opioid money isn't going towards addiction spending,
its going into the general budget
the-journal.com/articles/plans… #opioids #colorado #government #politics #sackler #purdue #opioidcrisis
"Under the framework, 60% of Colorado’s settlement proceeds will be distributed to 19 regions of the state. Regional Governance Councils, made up of local leaders from each region, will make decisions about how to spend the money & provide reports"
there is nothing that says this money has to be spent on addiction services, NOTHING

That sweet sweet opioid litigation money is going to general budgets & pet projects,

If u are lucky, you might get a new Otter refuge

@pweiser someone is feeding you false stats

"70 to 80% of those now using heroin became addicted to pills first"

where are you pulling that stat out of
greeleytribune.com/2021/08/28/phi… #chronicpain #opioids #colorado
The best case that I can find is a study of teens that found 86% correlation with NON-MEDICAL USE of prescription drugs

And that is outlier study

drugabuse.gov/publications/r…
For one thing, exposure is the most salient factor for addiction,

another is this line in ur article:
"The opioid epidemic is 25 years in the making."

U are seriously saying the opioid crisis started in 1996? The death toll didn't begin til 2011

40% of Onondaga County, #NewYork positive cases since July 1 are "fully vaccinated. Does that mean the vaccines aren’t working? No ... Vaccines...are aimed at keeping people from getting severely ill — and they’re doing that."

Feeling helpless as a parent, trying to work w/ school guidance based on @CDPHE rec's that are often vague or misunderstand aerosol science (i.e. no mention of #lunch air risk; says misnomer AGPs esp. risky)

Could *someone* here ask an airborne scientist?
covid19.colorado.gov/practical-guid…
The struggle is a circle: Colorado (@CDPHE) bases guidance on @CDCgov, which is still mo's behind & catching up to an accurate understanding of airborne virus spread.

School district guided by state. So to get local school to budge, need CDC to improve. So, as a parent ... ?
The best #CDC guidance I found (from Aug. 5 👇) on #school meals or #lunch is vague and doesn't get at the real problem -- which is that when people take off #masks (when eating, esp. when sitting really close), exposure increases.
