You've never seen data presented like this. With the drama and urgency of a sportscaster, statistics guru Hans Rosling debunks myths about the so-called "developing world."

We need more #optimism 
Americans love to venerate the past. But by almost every objective criterion, their quality of life is much higher today

What a turd. He's a disgrace to the family name (I'll grant you he's not the first one)
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has apologized for using the word “holocaust” to describe the health effects of vaccine programs in the United States at a time when rhetoric in California has boiled over on the issue.

This is possibly the most insane thing ever invented by humans 
The Mothership Space Net envisioned by Andy Lewis (and built with the help of about 50 people) is an incredible creation hand-woven last week high above the Utah desert. But what was it used for? Equally as cool. Watch these BASE jumpers drop through the middle of the web!

It is nice that society has become so safe from disease that people have forgotten what it's like to see your children die or be crippled by diseases like smallpox, polio, mumps, and measles.


What is not nice is the rise of smug arrogant people on the internet who think that saying things makes it true, and that they are smarter and know more than the entire scientific and medical communities.  That's awful.


The time for polite tolerance of anti-vaxxers as eccentrics is over.  They are endangering the lives of babies, the sick, and the elderly, and endangering the health of everyone.  They are unravelling progress in public health.  Believe the lies about measles being a harmless childhood rite of passage?  One in a thousand kids will have serious complications or death from measles as compared to the one in a million who will have serious complications from the vaccine.  And measles is only one disease: whooping cough, polio... Welcome them back if we don't do something soon.


Dont stand for pro-disease conspiritards.  Shun them.   Abuse them.  Let them know they are beyond the pale.  You'll never change their minds - they are beyond reason.  But you can counteract them spreading their poison to the uncertain and undecided.  Save lives and protect yourselves from them.

Funny how anti-vaxxers never campaign for safer vaccines, they campaign to stop them.
I think they're pro-death.

" Across the spectrum of countries, from rich to poor, we see examples, such as New Zealand and Senegal, that are far more successful at translating their economic growth into social progress than others, such as the United States and Nigeria. Many of the fast-growing emerging economies, including China and India, have also not yet been able to attain the level of social progress that their economic progress enables.
