  1. https://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/18/4/1376/htm From the article: We found that the size and power of the state contributes positively to the likelihood and extensions of mass hysteria. The more centralized and the more power a state has, the higher the probability and extension of mass hysteria. In a minimal state, there exist self-correcting mechanisms that limit collective hysteria. The enforcement of private property rights limits the harm inflicted by those that succumb to the hysteria. The state (thanks to a fuzzy public sector and its soft power [123,124]), by contrast, a
  2. Most younger people do fine with fighting off disease quickly and efficiently because their immune systems are better-functioning than the elderly and immune-compromised. I know over 200 people under 50 who tested positive and none of them even had to go to a doctor because it was mild enough to ride out at home (if they even had symptoms). The people I know will take the virus they can handle well over a vaccine that was only tested for a few weeks and has no long-term safety data. I don't think it is helpful or fair to label a group of people who handle this specific virus well and choose n
  3. Has anyone else fallen in love with Dr. Lee Merritt?
  4. I watched part of a hearing with a military cyber security person. He explained how the machines are supposed to be set up in order to be secure, but due to how the instructions are actually written, security measures were effectively negated.
  5. We have only used chemistry (logic stage) on a 2-day schedule. Time-wise, it really depended on what kind of mood my kids were in; some days we finished in 30 minutes and some days it was over an hour. We used Apologia for biology, earth science, and physics. We did love the ES kindergarten curriculum and recommend it often. Noeo is also SWB-esque: https://noeoscience.com/.
  6. We didn't do everything from scratch using SWB's suggestions, but we did use Elemental Science's Classic Series, which uses SWB's suggestions for the program. It was extremely open-and-go, affordable, and engaging. Even if you don't use the program, the samples give a very good idea of what SWB's spines and schedule could look like. https://elementalscience.com/collections/classical-science
  7. Your post reminded me of this doctor from a podcast I listened to a few years ago: https://www.artofmanliness.com/articles/podcast-320-adhd-explosion/.
  8. No one knows whether the vaccine will prevent transmission. There are other vaccines, like influenza and acellular pertussis, that protect the person who takes the vaccine but doesn't prevent the spread. Taking this one to prevent others from getting sick is not a factor in my decision process right now.

  10. A community is supposed to be about balance. Some people need physical interaction every once and a while, to actually see someone smile. Isolating from friends and family for God-only-knows-how-long is not healthy for most because humans are social creatures and a year of video chats are not fulfilling the social aspect for some. Someone could do all the "responsible" things and still get it and go on to infect others. On the flip side, someone could do all things someone else deems "irresponsible" and never get it, thus not infecting others. My husband is in charge of tracking cov
  11. That hermetically sealed bubble part was inflammatory, but I'm a bit froggy today. I do apologize. I DO NOT look good with short hair, but should I cut my hair short...at home...so I reduce the risk of transmission?
  12. There is a middle ground. People have different risk profiles and should not be judged because theirs are different than someone else's. Anyone's interaction with another person can result in transmission. The users on this forum are by far the most cautious people I have interaction with. The people I interact with in real life are all taking some additional precautions but are definitely not on month 9 of keeping their kids physically isolated from a majority of their friends and family, choosing to not eat at restaurants, choosing not to have friends over to chat. Even though the behav
  13. The chance of some one *getting* an infection might be lower if that person went to the salon at the beginning of the day. On the other hand, if someone is infectious and wearing the type of face covering most people wear, one that's not very effective at stopping large droplets and laughable at stopping small droplets and aerosolized particles from going into the air but at the same time still legally a face covering, it is possible for that person to *spread* the infection to others who will come into the salon throughout the day because others' masks don't prevent inhalation of small and a
  14. I know a lot of people are pointing to this study to show that masks make interactions relatively safe or at least safe enough to continue leaving their houses and interacting with other humans indoors as long as all parties wear a face covering, but half of the clients were not even tested and the clients who were tested could have been positive but it was too early for the test to catch the infection. Also, every client who was interviewed about mask wearing, which was only 104 out of the 139, self-reported their mask status; they could have felt pressured to say they wore one even if they
  15. If the parents have never had consequences for her, I would quit. One of my dc had major behavior problems (not listening, screaming, biting, kicking, hitting) almost daily and night terrors nightly from the time she was almost 2. No amount of love, patience, and guidance would get her out of a tantrum. When she was 5, I took all artificial dyes, colors, and flavors out of the house. I thought it wasn't going to work, but I had tried everything else. Within a week, I had a new child. Whenever she got anything she wasn't supposed to eat from outside sources, like loving grandparents
