  1. It is not interesting; it is pathetic. It is also blatantly racist. Creating apologetics for the negative stereotyping of a particular ethnic group does not make it any less racist. By permitting racism towards one ethnic group - it makes it easier to be racist towards yet another group - it does not end with the particular target group; it can be easily expanded to include another. There is just needed a slight change in political direction - if the slippery slope of permitted racism is firmly in place, it does not take much effort. And using softer words to describe raci
  2. He is not an expert in anything related to autism and so it is not helpful. The author seems to be a financial manager with a side hobby of some kind. There are many many research articles that debunk the vaccine autism connection that were written by proven experts that work full time in the field and do not have an agenda - they genuinely care about their work. These articles aren't hard to find. Some have been listed on this site. The reason there was so much attention to vaccine-autism connection research is not due to any indications that there was a connection, but becaus
  3. This was authored by a manager of a private financial investment firm who blogs on autism and lockdown conspiracy theories...(?)….. A lot of research has been completed and replicated to pretty much debunk the autism by vaccine theory. Several publications focused on this, were listed by posters already. What is being done, currently, is trying to identify autism at an early age so that interventions and therapies can be started earlier for children who are considered prodromal (whose symptoms have not yet fully evolved).. Early therapeutic intervention in autism makes a huge diffe
  4. I recognized the name Geier (name of two of the authors) as I had a job when I was at university where I had to search for bogus authors of journal articles writers and determine how many times their fraudulent work had been citied. The name Geier came up a lot… This one authored by the Geiers (first one on your list): https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24354891/was cited by 15 articles. This one authored by the Geiers (third one on your list): https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/12773696/ was cited by 13 articles. This one authored by the Geiers (fourth one on your list): https
  5. There were a lot more infant disabilities and mortalities before preventative medicine. You need to research the prevalence of these diseases and the impact on society before vaccines were available and widely used, before dismissing this. My grandmother told me that it was not unusual to hear about deaths of school mates from disease or to have children crippled from polio in your neighbourhood when she was young. Living till the age of five was cause for a celebration - many from those days have siblings they never met or can remember their painful deaths. Also, adult lifespans in we
  6. I always work as a member of an allied health team, so I am responsible for just one aspect of a child’s needs. The boy I described had a team of about 30 people - I was just one! However, our work overlaps each other and often I work in smaller groupings with one or more members of the team. I have done a lot of work with children with autism. Your child is normal. Kids are kids first and any impediments are very much second. Everyone has support needs of some kind or another. And, what is normal? It depends on the context. Apparently, we all could be placed on the autism spe
  7. This little guy was a fighter. He was originally a child with a moderate cognitive delay with no other impairments, but became ill from eating raw or undercooked hamburger and developed a type of meningitis which caused a lot more damage. He was on a respirator in ICU for a long time and then in an extended care unit. In the hospital, they tried to remove his breathing tube three times but each time failed and they had to reattach. He was becoming weaker and interventions were becoming more invasive and frequent so the medical team recommended placement in a paediatric palliative care facil
  8. The prevalence is over estimated - at least it is in Canada. I worked at a provincial facility as a developmental psychologist as part of an allied health team where the diagnoses are determined after multiple assessments. Often, children with multiple disabilities had autism added to their list of disabilities because they " meet the criteria” for autism (esp in the social communication domain), but not necessarily because the criteria are due to autism. In fact, almost every non verbal child with significant cognitive impairment that I worked with had autism as one of their diag
  9. The reasoning behind acceptance of cancel culture (either by words of why your are ok with it or by your silence) appears to be “It doesn’t matter because…… past injustice has harmed many, and so the injustice of innocents is justified”. Even though we may feel uncomfortable about this, we see others are accepting and so we cease to think for ourselves and uphold standards we have been taught - but not taught well enough it seems. We can be swayed by MSM, celebrities and the cognitively impaired we elect into office. So weak we are. Those of us who want to build a better society should
  10. The Black Lives Matter movement is problematic for many reasons but the biggest one for me is the hypocrisy of opposition to racism and supremacy by imposing nauseating apologetics for what is also clearly racism and supremacy. But I like the dissenting views and passion in a thread on SC - reminds of the old days However, for some - there is some serious misunderstanding about the position of Jews in Europe. Many were successful - but that was because they had to do some fancy dodging of barbaric racism and truly systemic (as it was enshrined in the laws) barriers imposed by C
  11. The British government has been trying to get rid of all the most extreme terrorists by unloading them on other countries - and haven't done too badly. It is illegal to make a person stateless, but if they qualify to obtain citizenship in another country, they can be stripped of their UK citizenship. Jack Letts' father was Canadian, so he technically qualifies for Canadian citizenship, even though his mother is British. Jack Letts has never been in Canada. But... guess where he is going? And I would classify him as potentially far less dangerous than Shamima Begum. His parents, as
  12. This is scary: Pregnant women infected with the new coronavirus may be able to pass it to their unborn children, doctors at the Wuhan Children Hospital said on Wednesday, according to Chinese state broadcaster CCTV. The doctors said it was possible after an infected coronavirus patient gave birth to a baby on Feb. 2. The newborn was given a test 30 hours later and confirmed to have the virus, the doctors said. https://globalnews.ca/news/6509924/coronavirus-baby-wuhan-unborn/
  13. LOL. ITA. ....A condo in Trudeau land, an indexed pension plan, life long diplomatic immunity... etc. Something is going on.. wonder if we will ever know. I was with people last night who knew victims of this disaster. Their friends and families will not accept this media snow job. Shooting down a plane minutes after leaving your own airport, directed by your own air traffic control, executed by your own military, is not an accident. Something smells very bad here. The almost manic news releases of the US, Canada and the UK to all but proclaim this an accident (before
  14. Mainstream Iranian media ignoring her death and the circumstances around it, did not make public knowledge of it disappear. It only made it worse. This left the door open for anti-Iranian publications to have a field day as to the direction and content of the released news items. From what I read, the woman, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, was held in jail for several days. Who knows whether she received her medication or any mental health support. Prisons are definitely not known as bastions of humanitarian response nor are they staffed by the the most enlightened indiv
  15. Maybe read a little more carefully… just some of the comments: She was “Wrong example.. for honour killings”. She would “Taint the perception... of honour killings” We "should talk about innocent women” - not her…. because she is guilty? She would (and did) ……. Get in trouble as an object of seduction…. "Her killing was wrong, BUT…. […..followed by lengthy ongoing repeat of former condemnations of her…..] Claiming she is not worthy of victim status due to her indecent behaviour. I agree with what was stated by a poster above: "I don't think it is releva
  16. I have not read one statement on here condoning her actions. 90% of the thread is doing just the opposite so I don't know how much more it needs to be clarified. However, there is a definite tacitly accepted link between her actions and her subsequent murder which very much serves to deflect from the seriousness of her being murdered by a family member. This is similar to the murders of other girls, in that they are shamed and vilified pre and post murder, to justify the actions taken against them. The point I was addressing is that these women are not responsible for their
  17. I find it interesting that this woman's life choices Trump her murder. Whatever this woman did or didn't do, the much bigger sin is her murder and the fact that it was considered a slam-dunk-freebie sin, if carried out by a family member. When her murder is acknowledged and then quickly followed by a big "BUT", it negates your previous statement. There is a much longer diatribe focused primarily on this woman's behaviour and how it is much more important to address and it as a lesson to other girls to not follow her ways ... or guess what could happen.... so, "honour killings" could be avoi
  18. We have to acknowledge, that although occurring in other cultural communities (such as the internationally famous murder of Du’a Khalil Aswad of the Yazidi community), these too-often—community-sanctioned murders, sanitized with the term "honour killings”, are most prevalent in the Muslim community. This could be because in Islam you can forgive the murderer of your family member. This has been used de facto to exonerate male member(s) of the family of the murdered girl. They murder, are arrested, then “forgiven” (as planned) and then released and completely free. In some areas, these men
  19. I had home schooling for my grade 8 year and loved it. By necessity, I learned responsibility and goal setting and self motivation and self study techniques that I used throughout the rest of my schooling and university and that I still use today. My family moved around a bit and my father worked from home, so home schooling (they called it "distance education" though) was ideal. The next year we moved to Qatar and no one worked at home during the day so I went to an international (British curriculum) school there. Loved that too. Met many different people and was exposed to ideas and way
  20. I read that the Amazon rain forest produces 20% of the worlds oxygen. That seems a little high if it is accepted that ocean phytoplankton are responsible for producing 70% of the Earth's oxygen. Not that specific numbers matter, just that both are important and both need protection.
  21. Just re-read this thread. In spite of the many authors of posts on this thread trying to protect this guy and make hm out to be Mr.. Halal-Pious-Plus by both male and, sadly, some female posters, he, as I said months earlier, has a very poor character/ethics/morals. He still has very poor character/ethics/morals. Character is bone deep and unless you have some means of renovating his skeletal structure, he will remain a malice-oriented, nothing burger. His family accepts him treating you badly and wants you to accept mistreatment too - which is probably why he is a nothing burger.. He will
  22. I remember agreeing with you on many things in the past. Especially posts from years ago.
  23. Really? What would the other things be?
