Facebook Groups Promoting Ivermectin as a Covid-19 Treatment Flourish – The New York Times

Facebook has become more aggressive at enforcing its coronavirus misinformation policies in the past year. But the platform remains a popular destination for people discussing how to acquire and use ivermectin, a drug typically used to treat parasitic worms, even though the Food and Drug Administration has warned people against taking it to treat Covid-19.

Facebook has taken down a handful of the groups dedicated to these discussions. But dozens more remain up, according to recent research. In some of those groups, members discuss strategies to evade the social network’s rules.

Media Matters for America, a liberal watchdog group, found 60 public and private Facebook groups dedicated to ivermectin discussion, with tens of thousands of members in total. After the organization flagged the groups to Facebook, 25 of them closed down. The remaining groups, which were reviewed by The New York Times, had nearly 70,000 members. Data from CrowdTangle, a Facebook-owned social network analytics tool, showed that the groups generate thousands of interactions daily.

Federal Court Clears Vaccine Mandate For NYC Public School Staff – Gothamist

Shortly after the judges’ ruling, Mayor de Blasio said on NY1’s Inside City Hall that all public school staff must now get their first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine by the end of the workday Friday, meaning the mandate would go into effect when the new work week begins on Monday, October 4th.

“If you have not gotten that first dose by Friday five o’clock, we will assume you are not coming to work on Monday and you will not be paid starting Monday and we will fill your role with a substitute or an alternative employee,” he said.

Somos libro de papel, colección de páginas escritas ayer y otros días, cúmulo de hojas por registrar las historias de cada instante. Contenemos, en nosotros, relatos de amaneceres y de anocheceres, de mediodías y de atardeceres, con los acentos y la puntuación de nuestros recorridos. Estamos insertos en las páginas con aroma a tinta y a papel, a realidades y a sueños. a encantos y a desencantos. Tenemos portada, hasta con nombre y con título; aunque no todos conocen nuestros escritos, la lectura que guardamos en cada capítulo y que reservamos, quizá, para que alguien y otros más la consulten en el minuto postrero de la existencia. Formamos parte de un libro, a veces correctamente encuadernado y, en ocasiones, por cierto, despastado, y no sé, en mi caso, si las páginas se encuentran acomodadas o dispersas. Necesito revisarlo, ordenar…

Do dia em que ela eclipsou

O Outro Lado

Os cheiros do céu cuidam da semente na terra. A racionalidade do sol e a emoção da lua influi na paciência da espera. Era ali, a estação da alma. Dentro dela o cheiro dos cravos chineses e a borboleta encantando o mar enquanto o rio se desenha além dos muros. Dentro dela, eclipse.

Monografie : Billie Holiday

Andrea Bianchi - Drummer

Leggendaria cantante di jazz e swing statunitense, la Holiday ha avuto un infanzia a dir poco turbolenta.
Inizia a cantare da giovanissima nei club di Harlem, dove viene scoperta dal produttore John Hammond che gli trova un contratto nel 1935.
Collabora con Teddy Wilson e col tempo, stringerà un’amicizia fraterna col grande sassofonista  Lester Young.
Morirà giovanissima, a causa delle pessime abitudini che gli procurarono la cirrosi epatica.
