CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.
IAP, cellphone and cable companies, e.g. Telus and Shaw, are adopting two standard scams. They don’t even blush when confronted.
I chastise and then hang up on any telemarketer who offers me any introductory deal. They might as well say, I represent an unscrupulous company, who, if you survive this scam, will nail you sooner or later, you chump.
We humans have evolved for feast and famine. Whenever food is available we eat as much as possible. This suggests the way to successful weight control is simply to make food unavailable periodically.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
Back in 1998, when Wakefield was still working as a physician (he’s since been stripped of his medical licence, found guilty of abusing a position of trust as a medical practitioner, and found guilty of dishonesty in his studies), London’s Royal Free Hospital held a press conference to publicise a paper he’d written (which has since been retracted) for the esteemed medical journal The Lancet.
The paper was about vaccinations.
In it, Wakefield claimed that one vaccination in particular, a popular inoculation for measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), could be linked to the onset of autism, a serious neurodevelopmental disorder characterised by impaired social interaction.
In the weeks and months to come, scientists, doctors, and public health experts jumped to point out the multiple, flagrant weaknesses in his paper.
But the damage was done. And its after-effects continue to be felt today, from vaccination rates that declined in the wake of Wakefield’s publicity to new outbreaks of measles and other illnesses for which perfectly safe inoculations exist.
The new film, whose official synopsis, according to Indiewire, doesn’t even allude to any of the above, is set to premier 2016-04-24, at the Tribeca Film Festival.~ Erin Bodwin, Business Insider source
The movie Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe promoting his quack ideas has since been pulled from Tribeca. I think Wakefield should be charged with murder. He spread his dangerous advice, knowing perfectly well it was both false and deadly. I can only assume his motive is the same as other quacks — money.
