Maybe they're just fucking idiots, with an IT department that either is utterly inept or had been so marginalized by MBA morons and sociopaths.
Where do Zuckerberg and Ellison fit into this Lucasian demonology?
For various medical reasons, not every child can have particular vaccines, so these children are put at risk when herd immunity is compromised.
The state doesn't own them either, but until they are the age of majority, the courts have a longstanding obligation to assure their safety.
If you don't like it, leave.
You don't own your kids, period. If you endanger them, the courts will take charge. Not vaccinating them is endangering them.
The courts order children to undergo other medical care even where the parents object. Why are vaccinations any different?
ACtually, there are plenty of cases when parents and guardians have had their rights over their children stripped. REad up on JW's and blood transfusions.
Your children are not your property. You are entrusted with your well being, until such time as you demonstrate that you cannot be trusted in this manner.
It might work for PCs, but as we can see, the whole thing has failed for RT. The market share is so infinitesimal that even giving it away with methods to say, install it on Nexus 7, probably are doomed to failure.
Some kids cannot have the vaccines. Herd immunity protects them from this diseases. What's your solution for those kids? Force them to live in a bubble?
The solution is simple. Charge any parents or guardians who refuse vaccinations for their children without a medical reason with child abuse. Seize the children. Vaccinate the children.
How is it you have the brains to learn to read and write, but in other respects appear to be an ignorant halfwit?
Individual liberty doesn't give you the right to do things that directly endanger those around you. The old maxim "you're right to swing your fist ends at my nose" applies here. These fucking morons are endangering a wider population; compromising herd immunity which means that minority, who for a variety of medical reasons, cannot have the vaccine, are now at much higher risk of illness.
Frankly, I think anyone who, without permission of a doctor, who doesn't get their kids vaccinated should be charged with child abuse. We don't let Jehovah's Witnesses deprive their children of life saving blood transfusions, so why would we allow some antivaxxer nut compromise their childrens' safety?
The problem was no one had the balls to haul him into court, and then into jail. They allowed him to walk away from it; discredited yes, but unpunished in any substantive way, probably because of the culpability of some of his peers in allowing their names to show up on his fake study.
Fuck it. Just ban their kids from attending public schools, daycares and the like. If they want to endanger their kids, they should not be permitted to endanger anyone else's.
harvesting is all handled with heavy equipment in corn production. You can't do that with tomatoes
I picked tomatoes and various other commercial vegetable crops in the early 80's (Australia), even back then they had mechanical harvesters. Hand picked tomatoes were the "cream of the crop", you pick them for about 2-4 weeks when the crop starts ripening, they are early to market and good quality so the farmer gets top dollar. However once the contract date* comes up for the entire crop to be harvested they were
mechanically harvested and ended up in cans and/or sauce bottles. Same with peas, a 1980's era pea harvester could pick the peas, pod them, wash, snap freeze, and bag them. Again "shop peas" were picked by hand and sold with their pods intact before the crop was at the optimum point for mechanical harvesting.
* - Large commercial vegetable crops are often sold on contract before they are even planted. The thing about tomatoes (other than copper coloured hands from the chemicals on them), is that a heavy summer downpour will cause a ripe tomato to swell to the point it's skin bursts. When such a scenario occurs all the mechanical harvesters are in full demand since everyone wants their tomato crop picked before it turns into tomato sauce and simply drips onto the ground. The farmer doesn't wait days/weeks for a harvester turns up. While it is raining he will be recruiting as many pickers as he can at a higher dollar rate per bin. From my experience the extra dollars did not make up for the futility of trying to fill a half ton wooden vegetable bin with tomato jelly.
As to TFA, unless they set up the whole plot as a hydroponic farm there's no way it's going to significantly reduce the food bill for ~1500 people. However I think that's the wrong way to look at the project, TFA compares the farm to a public park, pool or golf course in conventional towns, it's nice if such amenities can pay for their own upkeep but profit (in dollar terms) is not the goal. If nothing else the people in the community who use it will gain a much greater appreciation of where their food comes from and just how much planning, hard work and patience is involved in growing something edible and eating it before some other critter does.
Sadly the only thing it proves is your (and Judith Curry's) lack of education on the subject of statistics. Note I am actually being generous here by assuming that Curry doesn't understand her mistakes.
