For example: Jeff Hayes, producer of the in process documentary, “Bought” reported this incident below www.supportboughtmovie.com
“I’m in Santa Clara CA, in the San Francisco area. I just arrived tonight, so I walked over to a local landmark restaurant, Birk’s. They we’re full (of course) but they could seat me at the counter. They sat me next to a lady and we started talking about my favorite subject… food.
Her name is Jenny Burke, and she was delightful. She was there in the area with her significant other to attend a conference at Stanford on Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, etc. There were six tracks, her focus was robotics. She’s a PhD specializing in robotics in relationship to people for Boeing. Smart.
The night before they had their closing plenary session, and a speaker from each of the 6 tracks spoke on key things they had discussed in their track.
She said the guy from the Big Data track said, “years ago there was a rogue Dr who did some fraudulent research that said vaccines cause autism. In spite of the fact that the researcher had been discredited and the study has been retracted, this “false” data has woven into our culture and many people believe this “false” study and don’t get their kids vaccinated.”
She said he went on, “so we created a social media bot that searches conversation strings in all social media for these conversations and then posts the fact that they are false and links them to the “real” data showing that vaccines are safe and don’t cause autism. So this is just one example of how we can use Big Data and bots to affect social change for good.”
Wow. And she happens to be sitting next to, of all people, me! Go to: www.supportboughtmovie.com
CRACKING DOWN ON ANTI-VACCINISTS (ARTICLES)
VLA Comment: Government took away the non profit tax status of an anti-vaccine group
Croatia Has Ended the Anti-Vaccine Debate by Doing What the U.S. Won’t (Court enforced mandate vaccines for children), nationwide.
VLA Comment: We have not found any data that indicates there is a religious exemption option in Croatia.
VLA comment: If the bill is passed, which seems likely, no matter how rational the supporters argued, parents applying for a religious waiver will have to get the okay by a physician (per vaccine) having been lectured by this health professional on the benefits of vaccination. The National Coalition of Organized Women suggested that targeting a group because of their religious orientation is against the constitution and that the answer lies in having all the parents attend a health professional vaccine lecture given by a cooperative Dept. of Health and Dept of Education at the school at the beginning of each new year.
