USA TODAY NETWORK Reporters Uncover Copycat Bills in Statehouses Nationwide Using Unique Data Analysis

MCLEAN, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A two-year investigation by USA TODAY, The Arizona Republic, and the Center for Public Integrity that engaged more than 30 reporters across the USA TODAY NETWORK, part of Gannett Co., Inc. (NYSE: GCI), identified at least 10,000 copycat bills in every state using a unique data analysis engine built on dozens of cloud computers to detect similarities in language, revealing for the first time the extent to which special interests have infiltrated U.S. statehouses through “model” legislation.

“This project represents the latest and most complex in a series of successful partnerships going back several years between the Center for Public Integrity and the USA TODAY Network”

To investigate how bills dreamed up and written by corporations, industry groups and think tanks get copied from one statehouse to the next, USA TODAY and The Arizona Republic compared millions of words of legislation provided by LegisScan in a data collection and analysis process powered by the equivalent of 150 computers that ran non-stop for months. The project includes a live reporting tool that flags newly introduced model bills, allowing reporters in USA TODAY NETWORK newsrooms across the country to dig into every known model bill in their state and to track new copycat efforts. The investigation found 10,000 bills were almost entirely copied from models introduced nationwide in the past eight years and more than 2,100 were signed into law.

In a separate analysis, the Center for Public Integrity identified tens of thousands of bills with identical phrases, then traced the origins of that language in dozens of those bills across the country.

The results reveal that model bills quietly driven by special-interest campaigns impact agendas in every statehouse and touch nearly every area of public policy. Model bills have made it harder for injured consumers to sue corporations, called for taxes on sugar-laden drinks, limited access to abortion, and restricted the rights of protesters.

50 Studies the American Academy of Pediatrics Avoided to Mention When They Made Their Utterly Indefensible and Inaccurate Claim That Vaccines Were Safe

VCS Logo

There is a robust, worldwide body of published science from highly esteemed scientists questioning the safety of many different aspects of vaccines-how come we never hear from them? The majority of the most compelling science has been published since 2010. Below find 50 such studies to consider, sorted chronologically, and note that these studies only represent a portion of the published work implicating vaccinations in a wide variety of negative health outcomes.

Digital Dementia Summit

Digital Dementia Summit

I received this email:
Hi Tom,

Could screen use be shrinking our children’s brains?

I know it sounds crazy doesn’t it.

But children in the US average 7 hours of screen use a day and check their phones 85 times a day!

As someone who doesn’t even own a cell phone, this makes my head spin.

Studies tell us just 2 hours a day of screen time can impact a child’s brain function.

It rewires their brain’s neural circuitry. Increased screen time neglects the circuits in the brain that control more traditional methods for learning in the frontal lobe that are typically used for reading, writing and concentration.

This abuse of digital technology is resulting in the breakdown of cognitive abilities in a way that is traditionally seen in people who have suffered a head injury or Alzheimer’s disease.

Kids with Alzheimer’s symptoms?

It doesn’t even bear thinking about.

Digital dementia.

It’s the term that was coined by neuroscientist Manfred Spitzer to describe this phenomenon.

Author and speaker Dr. Krista Burns has been educating practitioners about the dangers of digital dementia for over 5 years.

And she’s been sharing solutions because fortunately, there are things you can do.

Less screen time is the obvious one.

But think of the brain as a muscle, with proper stimulation children can strengthen their “brain muscle”.

Dr. Kristina has created a FREE online event— The Digital Dementia Summit.

She’s brought together a massive panel — I counted some 60 experts — to explore the dangers and share solutions.

There are lot’s of talks on how to improve brain health and a couple of speakers also address the EMF question.

Indiana University Mumps Outbreak

Indiana University Mumps Outbreak

Fully vaccinated students contract mumps? Happens all the time. This is the big admission in this story –
According to University spokesman Chuck Carney – “They’ve been able to get a third MMR shot,” and “What that does is provide a boost of immunity for about a month… It will help people stave off this illness.”

Happy with that? Prepared to roll up your sleeve for a quick jolt?

Vaccination is not immunity. Injecting a cocktail of viruses and chemicals is neither safe or effective. Even worse – it is a giant experiment that continues despite repeated failures. This is not science, it is business. Kathy S.

Tested Vaccines Contain Glyphosate Weedkiller

Definitely worth watching and sharing. It details not only how Moms Across America and another scientist have tested and found vaccines contain glyphosate (which, along with polysorbate 80, crosses the blood/brain barrier and allows free access to the brain to the other toxins in vaccines) but also that Freedom of Information requests led to the CDC and FDA public abdication of responsibility for testing vaccines for glyphosate!

Vaccine DO Cause Autism – Dr Andrew Wakefield Exonerated

WAKEFIELD TRUTH (SUMMARIZED) & 28 SUPPORTING RESEARCH PAPERS ★

Why do people love to say that Andrew Wakefield was debunked? It’s one of the most common “pro vax” (how can you be pro-something that harms children?) arguments out there, and I hear itdaily. Let me clear some things up for those who regurgitate what they hear from the media, without ever fact-checking. I’ll say this loud for the ones in the back.

Why do people love to say that Andrew Wakefield was debunked? It’s one of the most common “pro vax” (how can you be pro-something that harms children?) arguments out there, and I hear it daily. Let me clear some things up for those who regurgitate what they hear from the media, without ever fact-checking. I’ll say this loud for the ones in the back.

It was never a study; it was merely a paper where he stated a correlation between children receiving the MMR vaccine and immediately after developing severe GI problems which is very commonly seen in children with autism.

He never set out to knock vaccines. A desperate mother came to him with her story and asked him to help and said she knows many other mothers who have the same issue. He was conflicted but felt morally inclined to help.

He had a case series of 12 parents who all reported very similar if not EXACTLY the same outcome after the MMR vaccine: high fever; seizures; prolonged sleep; waking up, unfortunately, to never the same child again … with lost speech; an inability to maintain eye contact; gastrointestinal problems, and an autism diagnosis. He suggested as a hypothesis that further studies should be done with a correlation between the MMR vaccine, GI problems, and ASD.

There were 30 other authors on the Lancet paper, but they chose only to go after Andy because he said he doesn’t support the use of MMR combined (only single) until further studies are conducted, and because he was called into litigation with parents against the vaccine manufacturers. They made an example out of him to “warn” (scare) other doctors who agreed with Andy (many were the top in their field), not to go against the manufacturers.

The other doctor whose license was revoked appealed it and a judge fully agreed that there was nothing done wrong and reinstated his licensing. Andy never pursued this for financial reasons, and over 90% of the charges were the same. The Lancet paper should’ve been republished but the editor didn’t want to taint his reputation?

So unless you know all these facts, don’t use this argument against vaccines and autism. You immediately lose any credit when you say Andrew Wakefield was debunked. It’s not even a question if vaccines can cause autism, it’s a FACT. Now, what are we going to do to change this?

Ask yourself what someone who is against vaccines has to gain or profit to speak out and be adamant on the issue. I know I don’t get a dime for being against them. Now, what do medical professionals and manufacturers have to gain? OK thanks for listening, now carry on with your day.
