Как водится, один только Трамп смог сказать правильные вещи:

Коронавирус, Снегов с его "Диктатором" и женское молоко.

Помнится, в этой книжке была "водная аллергия" - жуткая болезнь, от которой помогало только женское молоко.

А сейчас, оказывается, возник спрос на молоко матерей, вакцинировавшихся от вируса. Ибо в нём передаются антитела.

И ведь действительно - как можно передать антитела, если не делать их через вакцину? Можно, видимо, переливать кровь. Сложности/проблемы очевидны. А можно - пить молоко вакцинированных. В принципе, должно помогать передавать самый разный иммунитет.

А вы говорите, фантастическая литература.

А чтобы вы не думали, что я забыл о политической стороне вопроса:

<< Equity in Breastfeeding: Where Do We Go from Here?

Provision of accessible, high-quality, best-practice support for all people who want to breastfeed is a sound investment by society at large. As our basic scientific knowledge has grown, the evidence that justifies such investments now extends beyond the powerful breastfeeding protection against infectious diseases in early childhood to include protection against the development of chronic diseases in later adulthood. In addition, breastfeeding also offers protection to the mother against the risks of breast and ovarian cancer, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. As a result, effective interventions to improve breastfeeding out-comes are highly cost-effective. The evidence for the health and economic benefits of breastfeeding to families and society as a whole is now so strong that access to breastfeeding protection and support has also been framed as a human right with issues of social justice and equity becoming paramount. Social justice in breastfeeding requires fair access for all to the multilevel intersectoral infrastructure needed to protect, promote and support breastfeeding so that individuals, families and soci-ety can partake in the numerous benefits derived from breast-feeding. Breastfeeding equity requires the involvement and participation of all people and stakeholder institutions in the support and benefits derived from breastfeeding, regard-less of income, ethnicity, education, religion, country of origin, gender, sexual identity, and age, among many other dimensions of diversity within populations. Put differently, any social, economic, political, legal, or biomedical factors that prevent women from implementing their choice and right to breastfeed can be framed as a fundamental social injustice that needs to be understood through an equity lens. >>


А вот, кстати, из другуго источника:

<< Marital status: Married women are more likely to breastfeed at six months and twelve months (62% and 38%) than unmarried women (33% and 15%). >>

Но, как мы понимаем, такие вещи не приводят к естественному для нормального человека выводу о том, что некоторые социальные привычки и институты более естественны, правильны и вообще необходимы для выживания.

А знаете, как это теперь у нас (у них) называется?

Algorithmic justice!

Объявление о вакансии:

<< This position is housed within the Algorithmic Fairness and Opacity Working Group ...

The PIT-UN postdoc will help to develop a cohort of undergraduates and junior scholars as “public interest technologists” through skill building, reflection, critical service learning, and connections to the field of algorithmic justice.

In this role you will partner to develop programming with the D-Lab and Cal NERDS. This postdoc position will help undergrads to deepen technical skills, explore the social and political implications of algorithmic systems, and provide onramps into the PIT field. ... Through AFOG Reflection and Critical Technical Practice Workshops, students will reflect on what it means to practice ethically and in the public interest, exploring issues of power, identity, and expertise, and their role as a professional, an employee, an expert, and a member of the public in relation to the public good, social justice and social change. You will also organize four PIT-UN related workshops and help support Cal NERDS to develop their STEMinist post-bootcamp programming, and support other activities as needed. You will work with the PIs to develop and apply metrics to assess the success of the PITUN grant activities in cultivating an undergraduate PIT cohort...

You will dedicate 50% of your time to this effort and will have the freedom to pursue your own AFOG related research, in collaboration with the PIs or other AFOG members. We are interested in many areas of algorithmic justice, but especially research that explores the effects of AI systems on the ground, expands the ‘Solution Space’ for responsible AI including improved algorithms, interface designs, legal reforms, improved organizational policies and processes, collective action, and social movements, and research on educational approaches that help technical think deeply and critically about technology, human values, and the social and political implications of technical systems.

Support for this position is provided by the Public Interest Technology University Network Challenge Fund, a fiscally sponsored project of New Venture Fund. The Public Interest Technology University Network’s challenge grants are funded through the support of the Ford Foundation, Hewlett Foundation, Mastercard Impact Fund with support from Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth, Patrick J. McGovern Foundation, The Raikes Foundation, Schmidt Futures and The Siegel Family Endowment. >>

Ребёнок рассказывает мне, что есть частицы с отрицателной массой.

(Массаракш!)

Мне такая штука кажется странной. Типа, ты её толкаешь, а она только сильнее вгрызается в тебя и разрушает, и себя, и тебя?

Вопрос заслуживает изучения. Однако, в социальном смысле, противоестественной гадости сколько угодно. Я уже как-то рассказывал о массачуссетской электрической компании, поощряющей потребителей за _уменьшение_ потребления. Я даже потроллил их представителя, пытаясь вытащить из неё, как такая идея сочетается с капиталлизмом. Она была совершенно lost & disoriented. А сегодня увидел вот это:

<< concerns about too many people arriving at Great Brook and specifically about crowding at the trailhead require that the ski touring center temporarily cease equipment rentals. >>

То есть, к ним пришло много народа, и они решили уменьшить поток и перестали давать лыжи на прокат. Это такой частный бизнес.

Это уже даже не Союз.
