Canadian Election

No.459424 ViewReplyOriginalReport
The Canadian election season has started, it will last one month.


The Green party is doing amazing well. The Greens are a far left wing party focused on environmental issues.

As the rest of the world goes populist so do we. We are just more polite about it.

What happened last time:

Whatever happens we are the most educated Country in the world so it will be the right thing to do:

The People's Party of Canada is an interesting entrant. Far right wing (for Canada) blood and soil types.

Not much support, but I guess you could say that about Nazi party in 1929.

The Trump administration reportedly scrapped three border wall projects it was looking to build after determining there weren’t enough funds to pay for it.

In a court filing, officials said current savings didn’t amount to enough to pay for the additional 20 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border wall in Arizona and California, Bloomberg reports.

Why No Democratic Debate Thread?

No.459922 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Can you believe that there was another Democratic party debate and nobody even cared to make a thread about it? The Alyssa Milano and Ted Cruz gun control debate was more /news/worthy, lol. Joe Biden is old

HOUSTON — Joe Biden has a record that spans nearly half a century, with some positions that can easily be cast as out of touch with today’s Democratic voters. He makes near-daily verbal miscues about matters trivial and weighty that can often undermine his own campaign.

Yet after Thursday’s third debate, the former vice president’s standing in the race appears as durable as ever, with none of his opponents quite sure how to attack him. None of their efforts so far have reshaped the race, and on Friday, Democratic candidates waded into a blah blah blah tl;dr nobody cares

Take Two Aspirin and Call Me by My Pronouns

The American College of Physicians says its mission is to promote the “quality and effectiveness of health care,” but it’s stepped out of its lane recently with sweeping statements on gun control. And that isn’t the only recent foray into politics by medical professionals. During my term as associate dean of curriculum at the University of Pennsylvania’s medical school, I was chastised by a faculty member for not including a program on climate change in the course of study. As the Journal reported last month, such programs are spreading across medical schools nationwide.

Why have medical schools become a target for inculcating social policy when the stated purpose of medical education since Hippocrates has been to develop individuals who know how to cure patients?

A new wave of educational specialists is increasingly influencing medical education. They emphasize “social justice” that relates to health care only tangentially. This approach is the result of a progressive mind-set that abhors hierarchy of any kind and the social elitism associated with the medical profession in particular.

These educators focus on eliminating health disparities and ensuring that the next generation of physicians is well-equipped to deal with cultural diversity, which are worthwhile goals. But teaching these issues is coming at the expense of rigorous training in medical science. The prospect of this “new,” politicized medical education should worry all Americans.

The traditional American model of medical training, which has been emulated around the world, emphasizes a scientific approach to treatment and subjects students to rigorous classroom instruction. Students didn’t encounter patients until they had some fundamental knowledge of disease processes and knew how to interpret symptoms.

Amy Klobuchar Shreds Julian Castro for Attack on Biden: “It Felt Like a Trump Tweet”

No.460089 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar knocked Julián Castro’s attack on Joe Biden during the debates tonight, comparing it to a President Donald Trump tweet.

“Blegh, I just remembered thinking, this is not cool,” Klobuchar told CNN anchors Erin Burnett and Dana Bash during post-debate analysis.

“Just because you can have policy differences and I was one of the few up there that was willing to take on Bernie and the things even though we work together all the time. I would never do it personally,” Klobuchar said.

She also noted candidates hitting each other wasn’t a norm in 2018.

“We united behind candidates and didn’t treat each other like Donald Trump. One of the things bothered me is he coarsened the rhetoric,” Klobuchar said. “We don’t just have to change policy, we have to change the tone in the politics. And when a statement like that is made, it doesn’t feel like that. It felt like a Donald Trump tweet.”

Democrats gear up to shut down 4chan

>House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said he hopes to broaden the focus of his committee’s work on terrorist content online following the deposition of 8quan owner Jim Watkins. (The fringe website hosted manifestos tied to a recent string of mass shootings.) While panel staff are still reviewing testimony from their recent closed-door Watkins session, Thompson said he expects the panel to expand its focus to other platforms, with the goal of eventually proposing reforms. “Ultimately we’re looking at some policy recommendations,” he told Cristiano. “There’ll probably be a couple more hearings around it. But we’ll broaden it and just start looking at everybody, the Facebooks of the world, Google, 8quan, 4chan.”

Anyone here remember back a few years ago when the mainstream center left elitist snobs in Washington all loved 4chan? The Washington post did a couple long stories about moot and making him out to be some kind of boy genius free speech hero back around the time of chanology. moot did that faggy TED talk and it was only FOX News who was calling 4chan dangerous hackers on steroids.

U.S. autism rates rising fastest for Hispanics, blacks

No.459778 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Explains all the shitposting on 4chan
Autism rates among U.S. children are rising fastest among blacks and Hispanics, researchers say.

"We found that rates among blacks and Hispanics are not only catching up to those of whites -- which have historically been higher -- but surpassing them," said study author Cynthia Nevison, a research scientist at the University of Colorado Boulder.

"These results suggest that additional factors beyond just catch-up may be involved," she added in a university news release.

Among children born between 2007 and 2013, autism rates at ages 3 to 5 rose 73 percent among Hispanics, 44 percent among blacks and 25 percent among whites, the analysis of national data revealed.

In 30 states, rates among blacks were higher than among whites by 2012. In states with high autism rates, 1 in 79 whites, 1 in 68 blacks and 1 in 83 Hispanics born in 2013 was diagnosed with autism by ages 3 to 5.

Some of the increase among minorities is due to more awareness and better detection, but it's likely that other factors are involved, according to the researchers.

"There is no doubt that autism prevalence has increased significantly over the past 10 to 20 years, and based on what we have seen from this larger, more recent dataset it will continue to increase among all race and ethnicity groups in the coming years," said study co-author Walter Zahorodny, an autism researcher and associate professor of pediatrics at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.

In 2018, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that about 1 in 59 children of all races have had an autism diagnosis. It reported that rates had increased 15 percent overall from the previous two-year period, largely due to better outreach and diagnosis among minority groups.

The study authors said their findings challenge that explanation.
