Perhaps people simply err on the side of caution... knowing that a #vaccine is still an experiment still on trial & irreversable , Worse still ? It is being urgently pressed on people by the most #Corrupt #Gov #Gov cherry picked #Scientists #corrupt big #Pharma !
Does this instill people's #TRUST ?
The #vaccine is it seems to be simply a stop gate ...
A timed barrier stop #covid19 ..
But what else is it throwing up ?
The #Delta variant is now escaping & passing through this stop gate ...
Whilst doing so in our bodies , how many new variants or new mutations will surface ? How many jabs or boosters in total will people need ?
What will this do to our own #immune system ? Make it redundant Or less able to cope with "other conditions" ?

I wanted to share some comments by #parents whose children have #pancreatitis. As I have shared before, the #pain care for these kids is NOT adequate. Their #pain is often not being addressed. I have asked parents to start writing up their stories to share. When #pain is not 1/
addressed it causes trauma, not only for the child/youth but parents. We know unaddressed #pain can lead to #chronicpain. I absolutely believe in #biopyschosocial approach but what we are seeing is a #psychosocial approach being utilized and #bio aspect missing. This leaves 2/
#parents and #patients feeling angry & abandoned. One of the reasons I started getting involved in #advocacy is that my kids #pain was dismissed, they were labeled. This leads to #trauma, #chronicpain & distrust of #physician. What HCP need to understand is that when this is 3/

Anyone else think that a big issue with #parents thinking that food is “curing #autism” is the fact that it’s actually treating highly co-morbid #MCAS, and that people are just mistaking the behavioral impact on #MCAS as “an autism thing?”

#ActuallyAutistic #Neurodivergent
- It’s thought that 1 in 10 with #autism have #MCAS

- MCAS triggers can affect you systemically, & the chemical effects on your body cross the blood-brain barrier.

- Removing foods that have these chemical effects = less stress on the body, & the brain 1
- Less stress on the body & 🧠 (as this involves neurochemistry) causes less distress in general, so you see less of the signs of stress in that #autistic individual. You’re not “curing their autism.” 2

If you care about any of the following:

#Autism/#Autistic #education
#SpecialNeeds education

Please check out the update clip/blog just added to my pinned #GoFundMe. *I don’t care if you’re unable to donate.* These are the kinds of things people need to know.
As someone that’s #ActuallyAutistic, I’m not seeking revenge. I’m seeking justice, & #equity for these students, & for myself.

This is the largest special education system in the country - and thus of great importance.
As I state in the blog/update just posted, I’d be willing to fight past trauma to effect change in a system that’s *this* large, and *this* important.

Give me my back pay, & acknowledge that days I missed were due to #inaccessibility, & lack of clarity re: OSHA workplace issues.

The most menacing aspect of #StandardizedTesting is the way it trains kids to fear making mistakes by labeling & shaming. Misunderstandings should be opportunities for breakthroughs in comprehension, but the tests teach that miscalculations are perverse transgressions.
Playwright Oscar Wilde made a magnificent observation in his novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray" when he wrote, “Most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one’s mistakes.”
Oscar Wilde understood that creativity cannot exist without mistakes, & without creativity life lacks meaning. Kids live in fear of getting low test scores because they are used to label & shame at best—& sometimes carry extreme high stakes (closing schools, denying graduation).

"When I didn't score well in CAT after giving it my all, I was devastated. Frustrated, I decided to take a hiatus & travel. But my parents wanted me to get a degree & weren't okay with me just taking off.
So at 20, 1 used up my savings from internships & left. I travelled a lot, but upon reaching Ahmedabad, I decided to stay. I got a part time job at a restaurant to sustain myself. I knew my parents wouldn't take it well. And I was right-they were furious.
They wanted me to get a degree. So, I enrolled myself in a local MBA college. I was studying & working; honestly, I was learning more as a cashier than as an #MBA student. I even wanted to start my own business, but I didn't have the funds.

1/ Home w my 84 y/o Mom for 1st time since 2019 because of #COVID19…She raised 3 of us alone on $17k/yr as a lit teacher after dad left. A few things she’s said that are hilarious... Image
2/ Today we saw an classmate from my grade school & Mom didn’t remember her.

Me: “Mom, she’s really smart, wise, kind, & gentle of heart.”

Mom: “So I guess that’s why you didn’t hang out with her much.”

😳 Zing!
3/ Mom thinking 🤔 ...“Wes, remember when I got us a tent to take you kids camping? I had you set it up in the backyard to make sure we knew how. Then I thought, ‘Hmm, this is good...why don’t you 3 just live out here from now on!’”

Thread by @JessicaMeigs (THANK YOU THANK YOU!)

➡️ Hey #entrepreneurs, #TwitterMarketing, and ANYONE who is #selfemployed

‼️EVERYONE should know this information that's being buried in the news cycle:

‼️The PRO Act, or HR 842‼️👎

The voting date is scheduled for 03/08! (aka THIS Monday!)

🚨Remember the heavily OPPOSED smack-down that #California imposed on millions of #independentcontractors?

That they are ‼️STILL‼️ fighting? The law that says you cannot even do #Rideshare unless @uber, @lyft, @Grubhub
... EMPLOY you as an official employee of the company. 😱

Even IF they could afford to do that (and these companies have ALREADY said they CANNOT,) you could not:

🔸set your own schedule
🔸where you want to work
🔸or any other #sidehustle - GONE

Not sure if you’re in this 📦?

Excited to share this new preprint…

Is #caffeinated #soda bad for children's #brain development? If so, which specific intellectual capacity is affected? It is a question that many parents and caregivers are asking daily but there is no clear guideline 1/n
Using the #ABCDstudy data, we addressed the question in this work, “Daily caffeinated soda intake is associated with impaired working memory and higher impulsivity in children” 2/n
Some soda contains #caffeine (Coca Cola, Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper, etc). The physical side effects of caffeinated soda such as obesity have been well documented and the short-term effects of caffeine consumption (mostly in adults) are well known. 3/n

1/3 Once >50s and clinically vulnerable people have had #Covid19 #vaccine, the tradeoff of benefits and #harms for #TestAndTrace and #asymptomatic testing in particular changes rapidly. My take at @bmj_latest #CovidUnknowns seminar yesterday
2/3 Big issue - when #hospitalisation #deaths low and the vulnerable protected, why would we ask #children #parents #essentialworkers and other non-Zoomocrats to #SelfIsolate, #test over and over to leave home? Listen to @bmj_latest #Covidunknowns webinar
3/3 Will we really ask the groups already most affected by #economic and #mentalhealth impact of #Covid19 to #SelfIsolate indefinitely when life opens up for others?

#Attnetion #Teachers #Parents #Union

My teacher friend:
“The DfE today sent out a letter to all head teachers saying that the #NEU had 'withdrawn' the section 44 letters which we were encouraged to send in, stating our rights not to be forced to work in an unsafe environment.
I immediately received a bullying letter from the head of HR demanding to know why I won't VOLUNTEER for the rota to go in to school to supervise key worker kids...and implying that I am 'absent from work'.
This week already I have delivered 8 1.5 hour online lessons,
and set work for other groups. I have supported my department members in using online teaching [as I've been doing it since first lockdown].
I have been asked to telephone all the families of my tutees, to ask rather intrusive questions about mental health, well being,

The ongoing fiasco surrounding some of the hottest Indian #EdTechStartups has shown that Indian parents need to change the way they think about their kids' future.

The only way companies can get away with charging lakhs for rudimentary classes is because #parents are willing to pay that. And it is understandable to some extent. Both parents nowadays hold jobs. They can't spend much time with their kids.
To assuage their guilt, they throw their hard-earned money at these startups, thinking "We are spending as much as possible on our kids. We're good parents!"


Not only are you financially harming your family, but you are also likely ruining learning for the kids.

One of our supporters has successfully challenged her children’s school on their use of the Genderbread figure in #RSE. This graphic goes against latest @educationgovuk guidelines.
#edutwitter #WomenED #LGBTedchat #SLTchat #PSHE
#pastoralchat #LGBT #NQT…
The new @educationgovuk guidelines state that external resources used by schools must be ‘evidence-based’ & that ‘materials which suggest that non-conformity to gender stereotypes should be seen as synonymous with having a different gender identity should not be used’ #edutwitter
We thank her for sharing this so that other #parents & #teachers are able to adapt for their own use. We are a grassroots movement who rely on sharing skills & resources. Please see previous thread incorporating concerning use of the genderbread graphic.

1/N - A key thing 2 note abt lack of #Covid19UK clarity on #EarlyYears groups/classes provisions is that *cancelling everything is damaging everyone*. Blanket cancellations of things deemed non-essential r damaging new #mums, who can no longer be spotted if struggling, further..
2/n -The logic of "everything is 100% cancelled 2 protect everyone" is, in itself, generating new vulnerabilities, new gaps, exacerbating isolation & crisis 4 new #parents desperate to see human faces. #:Lockdown is eased, but these cancellations r still continuing, meaning...
3/n ...that lasting, indelible impacts r being left on all new parents, masking struggles damagingly. Blanket cancellations, blanket decisions that 100% remote/digital is OK for 100% people is a sledgehammer approach which is damaging numerous people. Instead - we need....

1/3 #Parents, caregivers & guardians: you are doing your very best and there is no “one-size fits all” approach to a child’s learning. #COVIDCoping
2/3 To all of us: #OneGoodThing like kind words, encouragement, and letting a parent in your life know that you are there for them can make a huge difference.
3/3 There are also mental health resources for parents and children on and there are other mental health resources including @KidsHelpPhone, @FamiliesCanada, and @CrisisCanada that provide invaluable support. #TakeThatStep

Alright, this is my last #bcpoli #bced #covid #backtoschool thread before I get down to working full time designing learning for my students. It’s story time.
We’ve been invited by @rob_fleming and @jjhorgan to a party. They’ve had some challenges lately and money is tight, but feel they have to throw this party anyways. /2
So #bced #k12 #teachers and #parents get there. @Rob_Fleming offers everyone a drink. He’s got Coke, but tells everyone that an unknown number of cans can make you sick. Nonetheless, the party is too important to change the plans now.

#PARENTS: If kids wet the bed over age 5, they might be at higher risk for the onset of #migraine. If they're over 5, peeing while sleeping AND have #migraine or #headache, the bedwetting is likely neurological, not behavioral. /thread…
The relationship bwn #migraine & #sleep disorders is well known: sleepwalking, sleep terrors, insomnia, and, in kids, betwetting over age 5.

The same abnormalities in brain structure & function that make migraine also make sleep disorders.
Migraine & sleep disorders share "common pathophysiological substrates. In particular, the increased prevalence of #migraine in patients with #sleep disorders is associated with the hypothalamus regulation of circadian rhythm" (Ferrara 2016).

Positive #transformations are always great to see as an end product. The journey to a transformation however is almost always hidden. On the first day of #phd #gradschool in @umasschemengg, I introduced myself by saying....contd.

....I came to the US for the ‘#science’ and ‘#fitness’ industry that is known to be the best in the world. Everyone got a good laugh 😂 out of it. However, I wasn’t kidding at all 😈! I always had this vision of a scientist 👨🏾‍🔬who is also ripped to the core physically 💪🏾.
In that pursuit, I reached my best physique towards the end of year 2 of my #PhD when I also got #married 👩🏻‍🤝‍👨🏽 to @priyankaitkar9. I was still not quite there with the #science. Today, 4 years later, I am successfully @PhDone2020 and getting close to the best shape of my life!
