Aujourd’hui, histoire de légende à la SNCF.

Un petit lot d’anecdotes que l’on se raconte entre cheminots le soir au coin du feux.

THREAD ⤵️⤵️⤵️
Disclaimer : Tout d’abord je tiens à préciser que ces histoires ne sont pas 100% garanties.
Je les ai pas vécu personnellement. Et je ne connais pas ceux qui ont vécu la situation.
Histoire 1)

Un petit couple de vieux prends le TGV pour la capitale.
Arrivé à Paris, papi se met en quête d’un chariot porte bagage, pendant que mamie récupère la valise à l’espace « rangement » du train .
La valise est lourde, mamie a du mal.

A few words on #prevention.
When I rail against prevention, some assume I am not interested in preventing disease.
This is not true. I am.
I found this paper from @JuanGrvas et al that helps explain my tension about prevention.
cadernos.ensp.fiocruz.br/csp/public_sit…
This article discusses the precautionary principle as it relates to screening and prevention of disease. Here you have 2 concepts--additive preventive measures and reductive preventive measures--taken from G Rose.
I love reductive measures. Avoidance of bad stuff--smoking, donuts, French fries, driving a car too much etc. @nntaleb calls this via negativa artofmanliness.com/articles/via-n…

Let's remove barriers so that #PharmacyTechnicians in the UK can be trained to vaccinate, and support attainment of community immunity

Now's the time to produce a training programme & PSDs to support the delivery of this year's flu prevention plan

#vaccines #InfectionPrevention
We need to adopt QI methodology to address this #publichealth concern

The drivers are clear - this is about ⬆️ #patientsafety via #prevention

It should not be about inter-professional competition; there is enough work for everyone
It's important to #vaccinate as many people as possible to protect those who're vulnerable

Although UK flu activity levels were not high last year, impact on 2°care was high due to hospitlisation & ICU admissions

This year looks set to ⬆️ so let's be innovative w/ healthcare WF

USA: Research indicates one quarter of 12-14 year olds who died by suicide were LGBT, which is very alarming.

Suicide disparity was shown to be greater for LGBT youth at younger ages.

What can we do to reduce risk?
#LGBTQ #Youth #Suicide #Prevention
LGBT youth who died by suicide were more likely to have mental health concerns, prior suicidality, and family problems contributing to their death.

These risk factors are often related to minority stress, which show how homophobia & transphobia create hostile environments.
Lack of social support can increase LGBT youth feeling that others do not care about them.

Homophobic & transphobic victimization can make LGBT youth feel like a burden to those around them.

Hey Matt:
1. Your govt cut £700m from public health budgets, so>
2. NHS weight loss & stop smoking clinics scrapped/replaced with “apps”.
3. Biggest causes of ill health=inequality, poverty, over-work, late/inappropriate treatment. All of which your govt is worsening.
#r4today
Plus your govt has singularly failed to properly regulate any of the industries that get rich off making us unhealthy, from food to road transport. It might be convenient to blame patients, especially those poor ones, for their ‘choices’, but it’s also deeply flawed, @MattHancock
Remember this, from a month or so ago? Nearly half of families can't AFFORD to follow the government's healthy eating recommendations. bbc.co.uk/news/education…

Something to consider about this bill.
“The law criminalizes misrepresentation of a caregiver's experiences and qualifications to help ensure children
are in safe hands."
This fact, all too often, will only be found out after the fact, the damage will be done.

As it is, I would think parents do reference checks before hiring a nanny, if the person has lied before, they will again.
This is yet another reason why we need
a violent felon registry, this puts the power in the hands of the people, for their safety and for the safety of their children.
Too often in #domesticviolence cases, children are involved.
According to the Childhood Domestic Violence Assoc. 5 million children witness

1. The sleeping giant is slowly awakening to the corruption that is enslaving us all.

Once this giant has fully awoken we shall be unstoppable.

Public awakening is their greatest fear.

2. It’s essential that #WeThePeople understand how #Corruption in the pharmaceutical industry has a stronghold on people.

3. This long & detailed thread will shine light on corruption in the vaccine and cancer industry.

These are complicated & touchy parts of the #DeepState rabbithole for obvious reasons but facing the #Truth is very important.

The truth shall set everyone #free.
