A positive and motivating GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, it is positively morning and now, you can be motivated by stretching the mind and body. Like I did with a bit of yoga. No Forward Ambulation. Just a bit of yoga to get the blood moving!
Think About it Thursday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s THURSDAY! Time to think!
I saw a TikTok the other day that really made me Think About It.
First, let me say I have learned A LOT from TikTok. Seriously. There are a bunch of super smart, unknown people on that app. Yes, there are the morons and useless content producers on the app. However, overall, there really is some good stuff on there. Same can be said of Instagram. Even though it is owned by Meta/ Facebook. Side note: aside from the original Facebook, that company has produced NOTHING. They do not have ANY creative minds. They just buy it!
The post on TikTok was made with the backdrop of the vaccines. Basically a news outlet had posted about the effectiveness of the vaccine based on a “scientific” report. Then, someone (non-celebrity type) read the actual study and interpreted the paper completely opposite of what was said on the news outlet. Which, in the end, left us all right back where we are now: Some are saying they are right while others say they are wrong.
Both entities (news and non-celebrity) read the same paper. Both interpreted completely opposite based on ONE sentence: that vaccinated people catch the Delta variant quicker.
Think About It for a minute. How did this happen? A scientific paper published from the scientific community and posted by the CDC. All scientists writing about the pandemic and now, we have two completely different viewpoints…from a scientific paper!
This happens because of SHIT WRITING! It is a result of scientists having EXTREMELY POOR ABILITIES TO COMMUNICATE THROUGH THE WRITTEN WORD!
Furthermore, other scientists vet the research. Then, they validate the writing. Why? Because THEY UNDERSTAND IT! The average Joe on the street…THEY DON’T! So you end up with two different viewpoints from a scientist that only meant one!
And what has the Average Joe on the Street done to make their life easier? They have delegated interpreting this scientific paper to the reporter “who comes on at 5. She can tell you bout the plane crash with a gleam in her eye.” From the J. Guiles Band…love that song. They will report it in a manner that will get views. Truth means NOTHING when it comes to the bottom line. They translate the paper in a way that people will watch, and KEEP watching. Right or wrong…close enough for PROFIT!
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember you cannot buy a mirror that has not been used! Hmmmm…Think About That!
