HOOO BOY. Ok fair citizens, don't get too worked up over this. Do yall remember the year of those creepy clowns & you'd call us and we'd bravely take the call & handle it, despite the re-imagining of Stephen King's IT Part 2 out around that time?! This is nothing like that.

We saw there were over 2,500 reactions on this story within a small amount of time, so let us put down our Halloween buckets, take a step back, and explain.

Tonight, in the last hour or so, we were called to a "disturbance" off of North Carroll and Highland (the neighborhoods around Gateway Church). Some #teens driving a golf cart had ganked a whole container of candy and fled.

In the US, the best #COVID19 #vaccine data comes from states, reporting @CDCgov

But the current reporting as "at least 1 dose" & "fully vaccinated" neglects the impact of waning immunity, esp among vulnerable populations.

An important🧵 from me, @BethPathak & @COVKIDProject

When #COVID19 vaccines first became available, nobody knew how long the benefits would last. Many hoped the shots would offer full protection for a year or longer.

Unfortunately, well-conducted research studies in the summer of 2021 have demonstrated that the effectiveness of the vaccines starts to decline (wane) after 4-6 months. For the Janssen (J&J) vaccine, waning begins after only 2 months!

I am trained in #developmental #psychology and #neuroscince. I have been screaming the #teenagebrain is #underreconstruction from the rooftops! Am totally ashamed of my peers who wilfully ignore this. #neuroplasticity #frontallobes #psychologists #gender #rogd #trans #detrans
The teenage brain is under reconstruction. The prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until minimum aged 25. A bit longer for males. The prefrontal cortex is largely responsible for: decision making, planning, organisation, focusing, impulsivity, aka executive functions
Managing emotions, predicting consequences of one’s choices and moderating social behaviour. This is #science #facts Anyone who says otherwise is brainwashed by #ideology Shame on any professional who ignores this #gender #trans #detrans #shame

I’m, as a parent, trying to do the next right thing. So I stepped into the unknown - my teens room, to clean it up today. I’ve tried before telling her that love is an open door, but she could never fully do that with all the crap in her room. 1/many... #QuarantineLife #teens
It’s a bit of a fixer upper, that’s for sure. I’ve let it go for long enough. She said she’d do it in summer, but I really never believed her. Once I started cleaning there were things there that had missing for months. 2/many... #QuarantineLife #cleanroom #teens
I thought to myself that all is found, and as I was pleased, I continued on. I know when all is said & done, it could end up looking the same, because some things never change. But if I sense it is returning to its former wretched state, I’ll tell her to show yourself. 3/many..

We're back for Day 32 of your Nebraska Legislature. Debate is continuing on LB840 from Sen. Dan Quick of Grand Island, which would bar electronic smoking devices from being used indoors, but affords some exemptions for vape stores.
Omaha Sen. Justin Wayne's amendment allowing vaping inside vape shops is now being debated. Sen. Andrew La Grone, hearkening back to Day 31, says lawmakers need to be careful about the definitions they insert into law.
There was some concern yesterday the language of Quick's bill criminalized inhalers or humidifiers. Obviously that's not the intent, Quick said.

He said his bill is aimed at protecting children.

This is among the best political videos I’ve ever seen. Look at him go! And it’s all so achievable. Let’s do it! ✊🏼❤️
People outside the UK should watch this too & get inspired. And follow @UKLabour @jeremycorbyn @LabGND & @LabourByTheMany to see what a brilliant, people-powered campaign looks like.
Such a boon for all the hardworking Labour campaigners too. And what a tonic for disillusioned voters who’ve been trained to expect nothing, to demand nothing. And if you’re parroting the “how do we pay for it?”, walk around Mayfair for a minute.

This opinion piece by a few Ozzies is so full of contorted thinking & debunked logic it is worthy of a @Clive_Bates 13K word smack-down, but I expect he's busy on other things so I'll post some brief points.
@KielanMcalinden, S. Sohal, @sharmalabonline…
"Maternal smoking and intrauterine exposure to tobacco smoke and nicotine have been linked.."
Nicely snuck #nicotine in there. Onya!
If U don't understand that CO and tar are largest source of harm from #tobacco #SMOKE then perhaps U should stay in the shallow end of the pool.
"These devices still deliver nicotine .."
You say that like it's a bad thing.
The evidence to support that needs to be balanced by evidence of healthful effects re Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, Dementia, ADHD, Schizophrenia..

So now we'll have some questions for @marycheh, #Washington #DC Councilmember for #Ward3 and its Chair. RT DC bill would give #teens the #power to #vaccinate without #parent's #consent
#vaccines #vaccine #politics… via @wusa9
Chairwoman @marycheh:
Are you aware HHS hasn't delivered a #vaccine safety report in 31 years? That since 1986 it's been illegal to sue #BigPharma for #vaccines injury? That US Govt. (taxpayers!) has paid >$4Billion in damages for vax injuries since then?…
2/ As an elected official looking out for constituents, do you have any qualms, re: market forces no longer pressuring #BigPharma to get #vaccines right? You must know how often they've been caught doing duplicitous, human-hurting things—#Opioids, #Vioxx, #AIDS-tainted blood, etc

We've teamed up with @ORDeptEd to introduce the #Oregon Sexual Violence Prevention Resource Map to help communities in Oregon assess factors that can increase the risk of sexual violence and reduce perpetration of sexual violence among adolescents:
@ORDeptEd According to the data obtained by the #Oregon Healthy #Teens Survey, 1 in 8 students, 1 in 5 female students and 1 in 5 youth who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender reported they were pressured to engage in non-consensual sexual activity.
@ORDeptEd “We hope this set of tools helps begin/continue a discussion in schools & communities about the importance of sex education & encourages schools to actively engage in these conversations,” - Laura Chisholm, interim manager, Injury and Violence Prevention Program at OHA

this fabricated Salena Zito quote could have been "crafted" and "massaged" a bit better tbh……
should be easy to find the tape of the interview
she liked the real guy's quote so much she recycled the exact language for the guy she made up for her kicker…

(2/11) for expectant & #parenting #teens, (still the #1 reason girls drop out, even with unplanned pregnancies on the decline) I invited them to the table to share their stories, struggles & to inform the #BPS policy we developed to better support them.
(3/11) (B) When I wanted to better understand why we were seeing an increase in #bicyclist & motor vehicle collisions, I contacted @bostonbikeunion I invited them to share their stories & struggles, 4 hrgs later, we had a crash data report & the 1st sideguard ord. in the country
