    I need everyone to read this article…

    The CDC is now banned from using these words…

    I.could.not.believe.it….

    Really?

    They can’t say something is “evidence-based” or “scientifically based” but instead must use the term “CDC based”…

     

    Did I read that right???

    Can someone please make sure I read that right?

    Take a look at the 7 banned words list…

    Since when can the White house ban words???

    I’m booking a one way flight to Latin America and never coming back.

    The words were not banned.  It’s more complicated than that.

    There is so much automatic outrage, it’s understandable we beleive anything bad.  But we always need to wear our skeptic hats.

    When I read that article @danielw all I saw was the fact that the words are being shied away from use as to not harm the poor ears of those poor victim Republicans who can’t bear to hear such filth. Banned…discouraged from being used….tomato…tomAAto….What honestly is the difference? Even if it’s been severely exaggerated, the very fact that this kind of shit is in the news is a major red flag…Honestly

    Thanks, Bellen, for the thread, will be back shortly. There’s more: head of the CDC resigns.

    There’s more cheery news, courtesy CNN:

    CDC to slash global epidemic prevention programs in 39 of 49 countries
    (CNN) The former chief of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the decision to cut 80% of its epidemic prevention activities overseas could pose a grave danger to the United States because it “would significantly increase the chance an epidemic will spread without our knowledge and endanger lives in our country and around the world.”

    What could go wrong?

    Yes, Zweifel, that’s the article we were going to retrieve and bring back here to the forum, except that when we first read that Brenda resigned, we were right in the middle of attending to another CDC finding: Haematospirillum infecting a human, because it links to what we have begun and called for the past several weeks, An Aldo Leopold trajectory. tbc

    The 80% cut in funding was originally from The Wall Street Journal:

     

    CDC to Cut by 80% Efforts to Prevent Global Disease Outbreaks

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2018/02/01/cdc-to-cut-by-80-percent-efforts-to-prevent-global-disease-outbreak/?utm_term=.a7171602e7d5

     

    An Aldo Leopold trajectory began when coming across this statement:

     

    ‘Then another Quarterly Report on Relation of Grazing to Reproduction. I am also planning to study up on grasses and get posted on conditions in the field.’

    (Aldo Leopold, 30 Nov 1909)

     

    The Haematospirillum of the CDC links to spirilla organisms that associate with grasses, thus beginning the trajectory. Some species of these spirilla produce the chemistry that kills basal cell carcinoma, one of the world’s most common cancers.

     

    Haematospirillum jordainiae gen. nov. sp. nov was isolated from human blood. This new genus and species was named after “The Candy Lady,” an unsung heroine of the CDC. At the time of the regsignation of Brenda Fitzgerald, we were already one year’s progress in developing a Japanese alphabet (rather than the existing syllabary).

     

    Thus, the first use of this alphabet will be exemplified by translating the pioneering Sprillum work of Yasuke Terasaki, of the Suzugamine Women’s College, Hiroshima.
