#Dow plastered #Singapore with ads for a sneaker #recycling program, promising to turn shoes into playground tracks. But the shoes it collected in "recycling" bins got dumped illegally in #Indonesia. This isn't strange: it's how nearly *all* plastic recycling *always* worked. 1/ A woman kneeling to tie her running shoe. She stands on a ba

Plastic recycling's origin story starts in 1973, when #Exxon's scientists concluded that plastic recycling would never, ever be cost-effective (#ExxonKnew about this, too). 3/

Every year, Americans spend billions on #TaxPrep services, paying a heavily concentrated industry of giant, wildly profitable firms to send the #IRS information it already has. 1/ An ogrish, tophatted, cigar-chomping giant holds the US Capi

Those immediate concerns were soon joined by broader worries: that the entire rail industry presented a systematic danger, and the Ohio #derailment was a symptom of a much deeper pathology that endangered anyone who lives near one of the rail corridors that crisscross the US. 3/

So @Aetna has decided to tell all their staff that they will not pay for #COVID19 testing for asymptomatic people or for people who aren’t certain they had COVID19 contact.… Image
Despite clear guidance from @USDOL FAQ 44 Q1 can insurers use medical screening (medical management) to deny claims on covid 19 tests to asymptomatic with no contact? @USDOL ANSWER: NO. So why aren’t they doing anything? #regulatorycapture

When a superdense, concentrated mass forms a black hole, the laws of physics around it change, giving rise to an eldritch zone where the normal rules don't apply. When corporations form a concentrated industry, the laws of economics likewise change. 1/ A NASA rendering entitled 'Neutron Stars Rip Each Other Apar

Take copyright: when I was a baby writer, there were dozens of comparably sized New York publishers. The writers who mentored me could shop their rights around to lots of houses, which enabled them to subdivide those rights. 3/

1/ Of all the things we have produced what people find hardest to understand are the ones dealing with medico-legal and compliance issues. This is because people are not used to the language.

2/ However doctors & orgs do interact with the law. Doctors receive lectures dealing with those aspects that are relevant to them. This includes topics such as consent, assault, euthanasia, medical negligence, indemnity, medical records, data protection, the list goes on.
3/ We also discuss ethics, the role of religious beliefs, end of life care, clinical guidelines, communications (inc social media), diagnostic coding, whistle blowing, etc – which maybe isn’t primarily about law but refers to it where relevant and the law still applies.

We need to broaden our discussion on #regulatorycapture. The typical understanding is too narrow and based on a faulty understanding of #economy and #regulation as a one-shot game. It's not; the market is a process, and action in it and regulation of it have process implications.
The standard interpretation seems both neutral and innocuous, but it is not. It asserts a certain order of events that has support neither in theory nor empirically: that government agencies are implemented to then be captured/corrupted.
The creation-then-capture logic doesn't hold in what is often called a "repeated game," i.e. in a world where parties can act and react to each other's actions more than once and therefore cause systemic adjustments, adaptations, and even symbiosis.

Deaths WITH #Covid19 age 0-19 yrs as of Jan 21 2022:


Reported/accepted #vaccine adverse events age 5-17 yrs (#Pfizer Comirnaty authorized Nov 19, 2021) as of Jan 14 2022 (56 days)


(w/ 291 categorized as serious in 12-17 yr old group)

Prior to intro. of user fees in 1994, #HealthCanada was solely funded by tax dollars - therefore accountable to the public. By 2018, approx. 50% of #HealthCanada’s budget came from #Pharma. Quietly announced in Oct 2017 was intention to increase to 90%.
On May 27, 2021, Dr. Patrick Phillips was asked if the data in Canada's adverse event system can be trusted. He replied "absolutely not" & suggested #VAERS may be more reliable. However, "HHS’s own studies indicate that VAERS may be understating vaccine injuries by OVER 99%."

"Conversely, doctors who take money from one drug company anticipate getting money from other drug companies—and typically that’s the case. We’ve got doctors who’ve taken money from about 15 different companies in a single year."

Ok so here’s the news report (I couldn’t find a paper) showing Remdesivir improves time to recovery in #COVID19…

BEFORE READING THIS THREAD, do you think this statement is TRUE or FALSE?

Despite being a documented #epidemic for decades, @HHSGov's #CenterForDiseaseControl(@CDCgov) intentionally obstructs its collecting #statistics on what causes at least 10% of deaths NEEDLESSLY every year.

HINT: You already know of these systemic #DataScams due to #PublicCorruption & #RegulatoryCapture:

🤥#UScensus is maliciously biased

Thread coming soon about #CauseOfDeath #DataFraud

#AmericanSwamp #MedicalControlFraud

ANOTHER HINT: My inability to escape intrahospital, interhospital & health/disability insurers’ #ConspiracyAgainstRights using #MedicalControlFrauds exposes motive of the right answer.

Watch this video later to understand #PublicCorruption by example📽️

The #UCRegents suing #UCLAHealth’s radiologist & #UCLA professor Robert Lufkin MD (CA lic#G43135) is like the clichés about irony:

👏The pot calling the kettle black
👏People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones
👏Birds of a feather flock together…
The state of California’s #UCRegents suing Robert Lufkin MD is suspicious to me, as I have reason to think Lufkin is a suspected #MandatedReporter #Accomplice of the #UCRegents & #UCLAHealth’s #CriminallyFraudulentPrivateMarketDiscipline that depends on #RegulatoryCapture.
