No Pig Flu ? and New Ape-Relatives ?

5 Oct 2009

Hi All,
 
Just a quickie this morning.
 
Maybe we do have a Skeptical Voice in The Media wilderness.
 
Check out the Sunday SvD piece:
 
Big Mistake! (for the second time) … but no apologies or resignations from this lot.
Johan Carlson Smittskyddsinstitutet, Anders Tegnell Socialstyrelsen, Maria Larsson hälsominister (KD), Lennart Gabrielsson SKL (Sveriges Kommuner och Landsting), Jan Liliemark Läkemedelsverket, Nils Svartz MSB (Myndigheten för samhällsskydd och beredskap) under veckans presskonferens.
 
“Vi lär heller aldrig då få veta om massvaccineringen för tre miljarder kronor var motiverad eller en gigantisk överreaktion.”

And on a more uplifting note:
 
Please meet the New Relatives!
 
Fossils radically alter ideas about the look of man’s earliest ancestors
 
Ardipithecus ramidus
 
http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-sci-fossils2-2009oct02,0,3420742.story
“The discovery of the specimen called Ardipithecus ramidus “is one of the most important discoveries for the study of human evolution,” said paleoanthropologist David Pilbeam of Harvard University.”

Have a Wild Week, Stay Skeptical and enjoy The Interglacial, while it lasts.
 
Best regards,
 
Brady
