@SeanathanCory @walden4pa53 @HoLichette @backtothewind0 @BernieSanders I love #ChristianMythology,
it has many beautiful parts.
But like the people who wrote it,
it is full of cruel & evil things.

Goodness was in the world long before any middle eastern men wrote the bible. Some #mythos worship knowledge instead of demonizing it.
@SeanathanCory @walden4pa53 @HoLichette @backtothewind0 @BernieSanders One red flag for me as a little girl growing up w bible study was the way they dealt with questions. Why did they assume a deity crushed up a gold statue to poison water that made the whole town sick for revenge. Doesn’t a pathogen
make more sense?
They didn’t understand germs🤷🏻‍♀️
@SeanathanCory @walden4pa53 @HoLichette @backtothewind0 @BernieSanders Surely SOMEONE in the town must have proposed the idea that there must be another explanation.
Theres always several possible questions to rule out before defaulting to magic.

Or how about the burning bush?
If it really happened,
what else could have lit it ablaze?

1/ With #Vaccines approved for 👧🏽👦🏾 5-11 yo parents have a decision to make. #Omicron reminds us we aren’t through this yet.

As a #Pediatrician I have spent my career helping parents make health care decisions about their kids. This🧵is about #risk and the decision to #Vaccinate
2/ The decision to #Vaccinate means you believe the benefit outweighs the risk - so let’s break it down starting with- what #risk does #Covid19 pose to our #kids?
3/ Acute risk in 5-11 yo from 🇨🇦 data:

Hospitalizations 🏥 in 0.2%
Death in 0.002%
#LongCovid in 2-5% (still learning)
#MIS-C 1/3500 cases (most common in 5-11 age group)

Let’s remember kids rarely die so this is on par with other diseases we prevent with #vaccination

EU regulator #EMA authorises #Pfizer’s COVID vaccine for #kids 5-11 | Nov 25
- the studies done on Pfizer’s vaccine in children haven’t been big enough to detect any rare side effects from the second dose, like the chest and heart #inflammation…
#UK #Vaccine #FatalityRate Higher than Virus, Official Lies, Money Corrupts Medicine | Aug 13
- Of those who contracted COVID from the vaccine the fatality rate was over 6%.

Jap! ⬇keine Angst vor #Moderna!
Meine Frau& meine Tante(beide immunsupprimiert)& befreundetes Ehepaar haben #explizit Moderna genommen explizit weil alle Daten zu Wirkung für Moderna sprechen. Allen geht's gut! Und das war 100 Mükrogramm jew., nicht 50 wie jezt beim Booster
#Moderna bietet wahrscheinlich noch ein Ticken besseren Schutz als bei #Biontech, und #CDC aus den USA hat aufgezeigt dass auch der Wechsel des Impfstoffs von Biontech auf Moderna einen höheren #Antikörpertiter erzeugt als wenn man jetzt noch mal #Biontech nehmen würde

Ich habe rund ein Dutzend Studien zur Schutzwirkung vor Infektion und Antikörpertiter und Schutz vor Hospitalisierung gelesen und in jeder Studie die ich gelesen habe war #Moderna mindestens gleich gut wie #Biontech oder teilweise ein Ticken oder #deutlich_besser!

When I see this tweet, I get a sick feeling I’m the pit of my stomach. The way I read this, is, “Kids are killing themselves in #AISD,” and if Meagan, the counseling coordinator for secondary education is sending up #flares like this in #ATX it must be bad, because she’s polished
Does anyone realize that #Suicides in the schools are not reported in the news? They are very #confidential Why? They are #minors AND school officials are trying to prevent #copycat #suicides.
Yep, when kids hear about #Suicide they think about doing it too. Kids in the #ATX are in trouble. This isn’t Meagan talking. This is me. I know what #mentalhealth crisis means.

I keep seeing hot takes on how covid affects kids + if it’s dangerous for them.

But amazingly there’s still a striking shortage of pediatrician voices given the opportunity to provide our nuanced and expert opinion.

What would we say if you asked us?

A thread 🧵
Pediatricians have a lot to say about the covid in kids, how to balance the risks and benefits of exposure, and how to make personal + public health decisions that prioritize the needs of children.

What would we say if asked how dangerous covid is for kids?
We’d ditch glib mortality statistics that dress up data as science + paint a more complicated picture.

We’d reassure you that children continue to mostly do well with acute covid. We’d then explain that deaths + hospitalization from acute covid are just part of the equation.

1) The voices of chronically sick children & young people have been ignored throughout the pandemic.
It is crucial to the development of effective research, innovations, and services that lived experience is

1) Can we ask for your help, please?

The @nhs says;
The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

✅a high temperature
✅a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3..…
2) or more coughing episodes in 24 hours

✅a loss or change to a sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal more coughing episodes in 24 hours

We have been asking the #NHS to update this list since
3) LCK started.

The @CDCgov has a more comprehensive list of symptoms.

As #kids are going #BackToSchool without mitigation measures we can expect to see child cases increase and families need to know how to spot infection and when to get a #PCR #test. (Keep reading)

I am ready to talk about the #silencing of over 25,000 psychologists in Australia with regards to the safeguarding of children. We are threatened, harassed, coerced to provide only one #therapy to children or else! They tried to force me into this I said NO. Any journalists???
I am ready to talk to journalists, lawyers, bloggers and am now writing a book on this topic/issue. I am ashamed of my colleagues and the board who wilfully ignore the immature prefrontal cortex, the autistic brain, and their own ethics and guidelines #rogd #gender #transgender
I have not been able to speak openly about this until now as I have been continually #silenced, harassed, threatened, coerced by other #psychologists #therapists, my board, governing agencies and other professionals. It’s time to reveal what is happening to clinicians worldwide

Time to explore what this can do😃
#illustrationartists #illustration #art #drawing #withrepaper
This thing can record a #timelapse of the #drawing to upload later. So I can use this like a sketch book and add layers and everything! #Whoa
Heres my #LineQuality warm-ups
(w small circles cut short bc my favorite aunt kidnapped me for errand adventures 😁) #illustration #prac
Its VERY sensitive too. While it was downloading my sketch, I moved something on the table and made it shake a tiny bit. A warning screen popped up reminding to to keep it on a secure surface. 😳
It knew it was moving! #ItsAlive
Will reposition clips. I’m not a lefty.

(1/6) 5 Reasons why Personal Finance Lessons should be taught in schools:


#investing #kids
(2/6) Most kids will be the first generation financially literate members of their family

Most families are not financially literate, or whatever they know about managing money is through limited life experiences and hardships

This changes when kids are educated about Money.
(3/6) The power of compounding is directly proportional to the amount of time spent on something

Teaching kids Compound Interest as a math topic alone is not enough

Teaching them how to implement it with money and see it grow through investments can be life changing

Today our team @hope4college releases the largest national survey conducted during the pandemic.

For #RealCollege community members, you’ll note this is our 6th annual report.

So what’s new? What surprised me? What now? A 🧵

Full report:…
Let’s start with #COVID. It has deeply affected #RealCollege students.

13% of these 200K students lost a loved one. Twice as many among Latinx students.

Whatever the “return to college” looks like, it’s going to be marked by trauma.
Many, including our team, have been calling for increased #mentalhealth supports for years and years— particularly for #communitycollege students.

Listen to the students in our latest data— now is the time to invest👇🏻

💈THIS ⬇️⬇️⬇️ is what happens after a 'mild' dose of #COVID19 .

Who is following up on the 'mild' cases?

Who cares that they have been stripped of opportunities?
Who cares that parents are losing their jobs while caring for their children?
💈Who is giving guidance to school attendance officers who issue fines?
Who is creating a clear child-focused awareness campaign to help families and carers identify asymptomatic infection?
Who is funding CO2 monitors to reduce transmission?
💈Who is arranging financial support to a parent unable to work they are now a full-time carer?
Who will change the questions on the @GOVUK 'book a test' website to inc kids symptoms so parents don't have to lie?

"Those being vaccinated now are, whether they realize it or not - part of the phase 3 experiment. They're part of a #vaccination #experiment. And the companies have openly acknowledged this in their reports to the regulatory agencies." - Dr Byram Bridle

#Covid19 Symposium 2021: Dr Byram Bridle, Viral Immunologist, University of #Guelph

#CndPoli #Canada……
Note that Bridle is a strong proponent of vaccines. ["As a viral #immunologist who develops immunization strategies to prevent infectious diseases and treat cancers, I teach the value of high-quality, well-validated vaccines & passionately promote their use."]
