I'm surprised that there's no true distributed social media. The ones that claim to be are based on someone running a server, which gives them the power to censor anything on their server.

If I'm mistaken, please let me know, I'd like to see how I can contribute to that project.

Government running things is a proven disaster.

The US government. Many other governments are successfully running good health care systems.

The US government doesn't serve the people. They still bother to pretend, barely, to serve our interests. Everything that doesn't serve the interests of the elite they do horribly... on purpose. They do deserve the elite very effectively however.

As long as they don't need to serve the interests of the people, they aren't going to regulate any industry effectively. Including the medical industry of course.

If we ever get them to implement a national health system, we will have put sufficient fear into our government. From there we just need to keep it up.

Koch's postulates are four criteria designed to establish a causative relationship between a microbe and a disease. The postulates were formulated by Robert Koch and Friedrich Loeffler in 1884, based on earlier concepts described by Jakob Henle, and refined and published by Koch in 1890. Koch applied the postulates to describe the etiology of cholera and tuberculosis, but they have been controversially generalized to other diseases. These postulates were generated before modern concepts in microbial pathogenesis that cannot be examined using Koch's postulates, including viruses (which are obligate cellular parasites) and asymptomatic carriers. They have largely been supplanted by other criteria such as the Bradford Hill criteria for infectious disease causality in modern public health.

Yep. Seasonal epidemics are not usually called pandemics. But they meet the definition.

It's a problematic term, in that it suggests different things to different people, even among medical professionals. Airborne is another example. Terms like this don't usually cause problems among scientists. Part of that is surely that they know the limitations of these terms.

Occasionally something happens that causes the meaning of these terms to be discussed again. For whatever reason, they don't ever seem to be "disambiguated".

Possibly because they've never caused a huge problem in the past. I'm not aware of any previous pandemic of people so certain that they know what they're talking about and at the same time so ignorant.

Fox lawyers successfully argue in court that given Tucker Carlson's reputation, any reasonable viewer should expect that anything he says is very likely to be complete horseshit. by FreedomUltd in politics

[–]FreedomUltd[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I agree that I improved on the article's original headline. However...

Carlson first told viewers, "Remember the facts of the story. These are undisputed."

He then proceeded to say, "Two women approach Donald Trump and threaten to ruin his career and humiliate his family if he doesn't give them money. Now that sounds like a classic case of extortion."

In reality, McDougal never approached Trump.

What the judge said:

"Fox persuasively argues, that given Mr. Carlson's reputation, any reasonable viewer 'arrive[s] with an appropriate amount of skepticism' about the statement he makes."

In other words, Tucker Carlson is lies like a goddamn rug, and anyone with a lick of sense knows it.

Ah. I guess I see one of the problems here.

It is my position that politifact is, though.

Are you trying to straw-man me? I asked SaidIt if anyone was willing to step up and actually say that Tucker Carlson does not frequently and regularly post complete bullshit. No one has been willing to do that. Including you, just so we're clear.

Let us know, is it your position that Tucker Carlson is not full of shit?

Are you suggesting that Facebook placed TC on "reduced Distribution" for just this one incident of posting complete bullshit?

Are you going for Social Media Shilling Handbook 2) Entangle?

'Cause demonstrating that Tucker Carlson is a notorious purveyor of bullshit takes no time at all.

Is your next step:

3) Demoralize

Dismiss their narrative as rubbish immediately.

Do not even read it. Once the [mark] goes through the trouble to research, gather, collate, compose and write their narrative your job is to discredit it. Make it obvious you tossed their labor-intensive narrative aside like garbage. This will have the effect of demoralizing the [target] poster.

It will make them unwilling to expend the effort again, and for us, that is a net win.

New England Journal of medicine confirms what we've all known, the govt largely thinks you're too stupid, and masks are simply talismans and anxiety relief. by jamesK_3rd in news

It's more like airborne is determined by particle size, particle size is a continuum, and the cutoff point is not universally agreed on. Airborne usually implies a virus much more contagious than covid-19. Learning about this virus began just months ago, so as knowledge increases understanding of it changes. It may be transmitted in smaller droplets than believed previously, but infection also requires greater exposure, which is another factor that makes it less contagious than a virus like the measles. The issue here is that "airborne" is problematic terminology... and yes, there is a concern that people who don't understand this will react irrationally.

The COVID-19 pandemic has revived a decades-old debate about how respiratory diseases travel—which affects the safety practices experts recommend.

This mouth-made mist is the subject of a great debate about how the coronavirus hitches a ride from person to person. Virus-riddled globs can be inhaled, or even land in the eyes, potentially sparking infections in others. But for respiratory diseases like coronavirus, it’s long been thought these droplets are so large they will fall rapidly to the ground, inspiring public health recommendations such as cleaning surfaces and keeping six feet of social distance.

For respiratory diseases like coronavirus, it’s long been thought these droplets are so large they will fall rapidly to the ground... and be blocked by masks.

What does the airborne squabble mean for you?

Here is what’s clear: The coronavirus jumps between people in close proximity. Whether that happens because of aerosols, droplets, or some combination, most recommendations remain the same: Avoid crowds and face-to-face chats even while wearing a mask. Masks help stanch the spray, particularly for larger droplets, so people should still wear them, but the potential for aerosol transmission means more tactics may be needed for stuffy rooms.

The authors of a medical journal article that questioned the use of masks outside health care settings say they support widespread mask wearing when people are in close quarters and that their words have been taken out of context.

"We understand that some people are citing our perspective article as support for discrediting widespread masking. In truth, the intent of our article was to push for more masking, not less. It is apparent that many people with SARS-CoV-2 infection are asymptomatic or presymptomatic yet highly contagious and that these people account for a substantial fraction of all transmissions. Universal masking helps to prevent such people from spreading virus-laden secretions, whether they recognize that they are infected or not," the three authors wrote in the letter.
