No joke: #China joins U.N. Human Rights Council panel, where it will help select the U.N.'s next world monitors on freedom of speech, enforced disappearances & arbitrary detention—and on health. That's like making a pyromaniac into the town fire chief.…
China’s appointment to the UNHRC’s influential Consultative Group, comprised of only five nations, was announced in a letter submitted to the Council on Wednesday by Oman on behalf of the Asian Group, and confirmed by a notice on the website of the UN human rights office.
By joining the UNHRC panel, #China over the next year will influence the selection of at least 17 UN human rights mandate-holders who investigate, monitor & publicly report on specific country situations, or on thematic issues in all parts of the world, such as freedom of speech.

"Science shows that early exposure to circumstances that produce persistent #fear and chronic #anxiety can have lifelong consequences by disrupting the developing architecture of the brain."

[National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, 2010]
"While some of these experiences are one-time events and others may reoccur or persist over time, all of them have the potential to affect how children learn, solve problems, and relate to others."
This is a topic worthy of discussion. Consider WEF's rapidly accelerating consolidation of global power. In Jan 2019 WEF exploited the climate crisis by deliberately inciting #fear - in tandem with partners & media. Today it exploits the COVID-19 pandemic.

The two things we have seen slow or stop the #COVID19 pandemic are personal responsibility and medical innovation. Americans are much better at the second one. (1/4)
People wrongly applaud authoritarian methods, despite #China lying about results. Fans of #MedicareforAll claim universal #healthcare would help but Spain/Italy prove otherwise. Japan thus far has great results thanks to healthy population & culture rewarding precautions. (2/4)
People w underlying illness are high risk but do you realize how many of those are preventable? When I was researching my upcoming book, MAKE AMERICA HEALTHY AGAIN, I was shocked at how good we are at solving #health problems w research & how bad we are when its up to us. (3/4)

THREAD. A week ago I wrote this on the contribution that #migrants and #refugees make to the response to #coronavirus. Since then I have been collecting information on HOW this happens in different countries to learn for the future.
#migration #COVID19…
At @ODIdev we will be tracking and analysing these actions/innovations, for now here is an overview

First up the #USA where #NY state takes action allowing qualified graduates of foreign medical schools to contribute to the #Covid_19 emergency response…
Still in the #USA, the State Department is on the lookout for medical professionals abroad willing to work in the #US. As long as they have a valid visa....mhh.....🙄

here’s the video of them loading up 17.8 tons of US medical equipment to send China back on Feb 7. Trump knew by Jan. 20 at the latest we had cases. Pompeo even tweeted about it 1/?

Then I started wondering what news was going on Feb. 7 to distract us... I always try that. App failure at Iowa caucus. Trumps hissy fit at the prayer breakfast. GOP wanted Hunter Biden info.... but that’s not all... 2/?
The White House said they had killed the leader of Al-Qaeda. Trump was pushing a jobs report. Trump was taking protected land in Utah. That’s a hell of a lot for one day. They did their best at distracting us even though it’s on record. 3/?

Speaking of #marijuana.

Given the possibility of criminal prosecution or other disciplinary outcomes, I'll put this story as a fable.
There was a young woman, a young mother, with a husband serving in the #armedforces. The young woman had occasional #symptoms including positional agony, dizziness, etc.
Her #country, the #UnitedStates, cared so little about those that served in the military that it provided 3rd class #medicalcare through many of its bases and camps.

Let's talk about what we can learn from family #caregivers during the #COVID19 pandemic. Can the friends and families who care for someone else teach us something about #resilience and #wellbeing? 1/11

#Caregiving can have a positive impact on our lives - helping us to feel valued as part of a care team, closer to those in our care. When we #care, we can have an improved sense of #purpose & even extend our life expectancy 2/11

While we're buying ALL the toilet paper, have we noticed that the #hiddenheroes in our midst -- the #caregivers might have something to offer having been through these same worries before? 3/11

Tonight I'm going to share highlights from the 2010 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology & Int'l Development" report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation & Global Business Network. Not just the "Lock Step" scenario, but all 4 scenarios. [54 page report]
Following Event 201 (Oct 18 2019), we must concede that the ruling class has been gifted with phenomenal and prophetic intuitions & insights. (They truly are the chosen ones.) Thus it is worthwhile, even mandatory, to study their scenario exercises & simulations.
"We believe that scenario planning has great potential for use in philanthropy to identify unique interventions... scenario planning allows us to achieve impact more effectively." [p 4]

Chinese state media are ramping up a new #Propaganda narrative: that #COVID19 originated in the United States.

The #GlobalPandemic began in #Wuhan, capital of #China’s #HubeiProvince, where thousands have died of the disease.
Several Chinese state media outlets published wrong translations of an exchange between US @RepHarley Rouda and @CDCDirector Redfield to insinuate that Redfield admitted to people dying of the #CCPVirus earlier in the flu season in the US.
The Chinese Communist Party (#CCP) has also ramped up its #Propaganda efforts by attempting to paint a picture that #Beijing is effectively handling the outbreak.…

What is the Buddhist perspective on health and safety? A thread.🍎
Buddhism is reason. It teaches that faith is not relying on an external entity to protect us.
Rather, the daily Buddhist practice of chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, draws forth our inherent potential, or Buddha nature, to take action that creates value.🌱

1/ I've had a few people block me over my Tweet about the division being caused in the ME community over the use of the name ME/CFS. I've even had people pm me on Facebook to rant, then blocked me so I couldn't respond. I'm not sure what wasn't clear about my Tweet #PwME #MECFS
2/ It's not about the name - I hate CFS too. It's about people constantly criticising me, & others, for the name we choose to use. This is what is causing a divide. I only use ME/CFS when writing posts aimed at the general public, this is explained in my original tweet. #PwME
3/ Certain people feel the need to make this personal, it's not. But I guess I'm not going to change their opinions or actions. In an ideal world the name CFS wouldn't exist, but doctors in the UK do not recognise the term ME, just CFS - neither do most of the general public.

"A rational approach to #eCigarettes - challenging ERS policy on #TobaccoHarmReduction."
John Britton, Jacob George, .@LindaBauld, .@LeicesterLungs / Sanjay Agrawal, John Moxham, .@DeborahArnott, Ann McNeill, Nicholas Hopkinson
#EuropenRespiratoryJournal… Key messages for a rational approach to vaping and e-cigarettes
1) People #smoke #tobacco because of #nicotine addiction, but the major harms come not from the nicotine but from toxic substances in the smoke.
2) #Pharmacotherapy (e.g. dual #NRT or #varenicline) combined with psychological support should be made available to all #smokers to help them to quit and should be considered as the first line approach.

The Most Epic #Vaccine Rant on Twitter I Promise You’ll Ever Read

The #EpigeneticWhisperer Is Super Duper Pissed

A Tweet Series By EW

I’m mad as hell & I’m not going to take it anymore!
-Howard Beale, Network, 1976

I’ve been hanging around this 🌎 for 4 decades now & I have 2 tell u that I’m really pissed off. I was born, grew up & have reluctantly participated in this hot beautiful mess called society. I’ve been looking around, taking notes, & there r way 2 many things pissing me off.

One societal catastrophe has been this 300 year #vaccine experiment on humans. The most outrageous lie ever perpetrated on the human race. It’s pissing me off something fierce. Let me count the ways.

1) The entire vax experiment was based on rubbing cow pox blister puss...
