Children too young to be vaccinated are affected by other unvaccinated people who have come in recent contact with the disease. If the latter people had instead been vaccinated, the likelihood of passing on the disease to anyone who hasnt't been is immensely reduced (in addition to the fact that they will not get it).
I've heard it said before that preventable disease outbreaks like this happen because children who are typically not yet old enough to be vaccinated come into contact with a more mature individual who was never vaccinated.
If so, it seems to me that the only reason this kind of thing keeps happening is because of THEIR choice... and their choice is directly affecting the lives of other children that they could communicate the disease to.
As for how to really get them to support vaccinations? I can only suggest something that is at least mostly preventable through vaccination, but particularly virulent and lethal as what may be the only thing to have any impact. It won't necessarily convince them to do anything about it if they succumb themselves, but the memory of the incident will stick around for at least a couple of generations in the survivors.
If mammoths were wiped out by climate change, then resurrecting the species in a modern climate would be bringing it into an environment that it was not evolved to handle.
Not only does that seem rather pointless, but it also strikes me as arguably sounding like animal cruelty. I'd suggest that the scientific discoveries we might make by doing this may be heavily outweighed by the ethical considerations involved.
This matter really feels one of those times when scientists should be reminding themselves that just because we *CAN* do something does not necessarily mean that we *SHOULD*.
The government has always been above the law.
The only time people in sufficient positions of power go to jail for crimes is when they governing body been sufficiently embarrassed by the situation they've created that they want to start over with a clean slate, and at least pretend like they never condoned whatever crime was committed Since this is determined by what the *government* actually wants, and not anything constituents may want or choose to do, there is no way that citizens can exercise any control over this.
I would expect the government to just use direct deposit.
I have found, however, when one does not yet have an abundance of expierence, that having a formal education makes a significant difference to just getting by the initial filtering process.that many companies use.
*YOU* might... most people would not.
The point would be to make something that can utilize existing infrastructure, so there will be immediate practical application. Over time the infrastructure could change to accommodate radically different styles of robots, but that would mean waiting far longer for prices to come down because the slowness of any wide scale adoption (due to the slowness at which infrastructure changes) would cause prices to stay much the same as they started.
