Mary Poppins branded racist by US academic over scene where she gets covered in soot The classic family film Mary Poppins has been branded racist by a US academic who accuses Dame Julie Andrews of ‘blacking up’ with soot while dancing with chimney sweeps. In a piece for the New York Times, Professor Daniel Pollack-Pelzner criticises one of the film’s iconic moments, when Mary Poppins joins Dick Van Dyke’s Bert to dance on a rooftop for the classic song Step in Time. He writes: “When the magical nanny (played by Julie Andrews) accompanies her young charges, Michael and Jane Banks, up their chimney, her face gets covered in soot, but instead of wiping it off, she gamely powders her nose and cheeks even blacker.” “This might seem like an innocuous comic scene if Travers’s novels didn’t associate chimney sweeps’ blackened faces with racial caricature. “Don’t touch me, you black heathen,” a housemaid screams in “Mary Poppins Opens the Door” (1943).”
Senator Pan Uses White Privilege Card to Protect Vaccination “Creating a system to ensure that medical exemptions are scientifically justified isn’t just a public safety issue. It’s also imperative for ensuring that white privilege isn’t given the imprimatur of the medical establishment, using it to sidestep democratically enacted law.” This is one of the most disturbing messages we’ve seen from Senator Richard Pan, archipuppet of California’s SB277 bill that removed and tightened vaccine exemptions since he said that water is the most toxic ingredient in any vaccine. We in the vaccine safety, medical freedom communities (plural because we are not monolithic in our thinking, and that’s a good thing) are the last exposed, unprotected and targeted group for bullying. In his Facebook message, Pan turns to racially profiling us. White privilege? Offensive beyond belief. White Privilege: inherent advantages possessed by a white person on the basis of their race in a society characterized by racial inequality and injustice.
Question of The Day!
I asked for advice a year ago, concerning root canal extractions and wanted to thank you for helpful information, and ask another question. A month ago, I began to get a rash, on my ankle, which turned out to be Stasis Dermatitis. Steroids and NSAIDs were the only offerings in dermatologist ‘s limited tool box. All I have tried is fresh aloe Vera, calendula cream and circulation exercises, like rebounding. This is a vicious rash, and will not go away willingly. Do you and Dr Buttar have suggestions for treatment and cure for Stasis Dermatitis? Thank you!
Teens with anti-vax parents seek out Reddit’s help to get secretly vaccinated Reddit, the vast online forum and link aggregator, is a digital haven for advice, self-help, and general discussion; for almost any subculture or topic you want to discuss, you can find a Reddit community. Now, as the anti-vaccination movement has driven more parents to exempt their children from vaccines, some teenagers are turning to online forums like Reddit to find advice on how to get vaccinated, against their parents’ wishes. Laura C., an 18-year-old from Colorado who has posted on Reddit about her situation, told Salon over email she has not been vaccinated since she was two. She said her mom calls herself an anti-vaxxer.“I haven’t had my boosters,” she said. “My mom always talked about how I was ‘too special’ for shots because of my autism,” adding that she “stopped with the first MMR.” MMR refers to a vaccine against measles, mumps, and rubella, a standard-issue vaccine. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that children should get two doses of the vaccine; the first between 12 and 15 months of age, and the second between four and six years of age.
Nearly Half Of Americans Struggle To Read Their Own Handwriting, Survey Finds How would you rate your penmanship? A new survey finds that nearly half of Americans have trouble reading their own handwriting, leading to problems in the workplace. The survey of 2,000 adults, commissioned by writing utensil company Bic, found that not only do 45% of people struggle to figure out their own scribblings, but their poor handwriting skills has led to two instance of miscommunication at work with colleagues. Perhaps it’s because one in two say others have told them it’s hard to read their writing. In fact, seven out of ten respondents agreed that struggling to read a coworker’s handwriting is a common challenge. The study also revealed some of the underlying pressures of handwriting. When asked what they would feel if they had to write sentences on a whiteboard in front of their peers, a third said it would be anxiety-inducing, while 23% were “terrified” by the prospect.
Hour 2 – Advanced Medicine with Dr. Rashid Buttar!
Dr. Buttar is back to talk about what’s happening in the world of health news. Here’s what we have in store for you today:
World Cancer Day World Cancer Day was born on the 4 February 2000 at theWorld Summit Against Cancer for the New Millennium in Paris. The Paris Charter aims to promote research, prevent cancer, improve patient services, raise awareness and mobilise the global community to make progress against cancer, and includes the adoption of World Cancer Day.
For millennials, cancers fueled by obesity are on rise, study says Cancers fueled by obesity are on the rise among young adults in the United States and appearing at increasingly younger ages, according to an analysis released Monday by the American Cancer Society. The study, published in The Lancet Public Health, examined data on 12 obesity-related cancers between 1995 and 2014, as well as 18 common cancers not associated with weight. They found a disturbing trend among adults age 24 to 49. “The risk of cancer is increasing in young adults for half of the obesity-related cancers, with the increase steeper in progressively younger ages,” said co-author Ahmedin Jemal, who is the vice president of the Surveillance and Health Services Research Program for the American Cancer Society. The risk, he said, was increasing in a stepwise manner in successively younger people.
Bill Gates: My ‘best investment’ turned $10 billion into $200 billion worth of economic benefit Investing in global health organizations aimed at increasing access to vaccines created a 20-to-1 return in economic benefit, billionaire Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates told CNBC on Wednesday. Over the past two decades, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has donated “a bit more than $10 billion” into mainly three groups: the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. “We feel there’s been over a 20-to-1 return,” yielding $200 billion over those 20 or so years, Gates told CNBC’s Becky Quick on “Squawk Box” from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “Helping young children live, get the right nutrition, contribute to their countries — that has a payback that goes beyond any typical financial return.”
Many Children Are Overdoing It on the Toothpaste, C.D.C. Study Many parents are squeezing potentially unhealthy amounts of toothpaste on their children’s brushes, health officials warned in a study released on Friday. The study, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said nearly 40 percent of children ages 3 to 6 used more toothpaste than recommended by dental professionals. For young children with emerging teeth, swallowing too much fluoride toothpaste can cause discoloration of their teeth, a condition called dental fluorosis. Parents of children in that age bracket should squeeze no more than a pea-size amount of toothpaste on their brush, the C.D.C. and American Dental Association recommend. The C.D.C.’s survey of nearly 1,700 children in that age range found that about 38 percent of them used more than the recommended amount of toothpaste, which has the potential to exceed the daily recommendation of fluoride intake. Exceedingly high concentrations of fluoride in drinking water can also contribute to dental fluorosis, the dental association says on its website.
