#ExecutiveFunction Skills Development Held Hostage in the #AgeOfAutism



If you go on mainstream television news broadcasts it may hard to find a talking head that is politically incorrect these days. This is largely due to the fact that most mainstream news networks are owned by a few handful of entities who lack frontal lobes. It is not beyond imagination to see that some (if not all) mainstream news outlets are run and programmed by hidden agendas that overrun their ability to lead true journalistic enterprises unfettered by corrupt tendencies. News television viewers are left with 'news' that is slanted towards a viewpoint, news that focuses on one or a set of topics only, and news that is okay for the ones paying for the 30 second commercials every three minutes.

It may just be that all who enter the mainstream news outlets only enter if they agree to tow the unspoken agenda of that news organization. Does this mean that each of these journalist must hang up their ability to speak unbiasedly and critically? Does this mean that each of these journalist put truth and the pursuit of truth second to keeping their job and income? How does this affect their executive function skills, and how does this mold and shape the executive function skills of the masses of people who slurp up the information served as 'news?' 

The ability to gaugue is an incredibly important executive function skill that can be made soft through lack of toning, or mis-directed toning.  Individuals who are not taught to think critically can be 'taken' by riveting news images with accompanying musical score. What ensues is a melodrama that seizes on weak executive functioning abilities by short-circuiting the emotions of the viewer with visual eye-candy. Take for example the current 24/7 coverage of the Michael Brown case. As usual, the news outlets have their music, their million-dollar news rooms, perfectly-coifed broadcasters, and the penchant for aiming to make one feel like their is no news more worthy to be published than the news they are watching now. Ilustrating this are the readily-available Simpsonwood Georgia conferences that ocurred practically two decades ago. In these conferences, the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the Center for Disease Control and a few other top medical/ health organizations all spoke of, and admitted that their was a striking correlation between vaccines and the rise of 'autism.' One spokesman even went on to say that their was just no way that the 100,000,000 vaccines that had been recently manufactured could not just be thrown away, but would have to be administered while BigPharma created 'safer vaccines.' The truth of the matter is that their is still mercury in countless vaccines given in America and across the world. Their is still aluminum, barium, strontium, formaldehyde, cancer-causing viruses and other nasties in each vaccine.  Safety before profit is what I say with America's treasures.

Given the legions of children and adults who are maimed, or partially-maimed by vaccines, why is it not front and center on major television news networks? 1 in 44 boys becomes autistic in America, while in pockets of our land, like Puerto Rico, it is even higher. With all respect to Michael Brown and his family.... this is a much major news headline. 

This is sad.

How can a network attack a big pharmaceutical corporation that consistently purchases millions of dollars of TV time to air its latest commercial on their new 'medicine' for restless leg syndrome? 

Forget the families that have to deal with their child who is practically non-verbal. Forget the fathers who can't have a decent conversation with their son who may be severely brain/ gut damaged. Forget the scores of adults who are neurologically damaged and have to have care all their lives. 

What can you do to help your family gauge the truth? How can critical thinking skills be taught in your home? What can you do differently to set a new tone in your home so that your kids can become rational adults capable of making informed decisions?

Clinical Teachers: Armies of One / #edchat #criticalthinking #education

It is not the responsibility of empty vessels to create the motivation to learn, but rather, the prerogative to teach, the very responsibility of it, must be entrusted to the teacher. It can be so, that according to a child’s social-economic status, a affluent upbringing can be infused with a ‘comfort space’ of human development not generally experienced in the life of the child who hails from a low-income community. 
This juxtaposition in the human development and daily experiences of the affluent child and the child who lives at or near the poverty line bring a different array of positive and negative forces which impact their general well-being. As these two general sets of children age, the difference becomes more contrasted and is clearly evident at the time both reach middle school years. One need only look at children who receive private schooling as opposed to those who receive public school education in low-income neighborhoods. A child who attends private schooling and then e…

The Golden Rule & The Duty of Critical Thinkers / #socialresponsibility #edchat #TeamUSA

updated 2:24 pm est 11/10/17 The idea of cultivating critical thinkers is easily a lofty ideal purported to be achieved throughout academia and espoused as the hallmark of journalistic integrity.  Achieving the critical thinking mind requires a certain bravery, wherein, once our ability to tap into our own knowledge of content matter is done, we must require it upon ourself to contrast our assessment and infer from an ‘outsiders’ point of view what is true and right and what is inaccurate and, even possibly, the propagandization of a special interest.

For the critical thinker, the affinity to discern is attached to our decision to look at the hard truth and favor this over our viewpoints, our political inclinations, and our stance on any given subject. This is hard to do.
