You can get or transmit HIV only through specific activities. Most commonly, people get or transmit HIV through sexual behaviors and needle or syringe use.
It's curious to watch on TV, or to read, people pontificating in tedious academese on subjects they don't understand but have been funded to talk or write about.
The general rule is that, so long as fundamental questions aren't asked, any drivel will do provided it sounds like the usual sort of thing. In it we find: It draws upon a number of competing perspectives which are rooted in institutional arrangements, social movements and struggles.
As regards journalists, some good ones are simply driven out. There appear to be no ethical standards amongst fellow journalists. As an example, Neville Hodgkinson of the Sunday Timesafter a number of years of genuinely investigate reporting, suffered a change of editorship.
He wasn't sacked, but was invited to stay, provided he wrote nothing about AIDS.
He would not accept this and was replaced by an ignorant woman. Ed Lieb see below emails: Their advertisers were pressured to withdraw and the publisher was forced into bankruptcy.
When a scurrilous lawsuit failed to bring SPIN down, the publication was quietly bought out with no fanfare. Other than the disappearance of Bob Guccione, Jr. Celia Farber's writings are among the earliest and best in the U. I've heard Guccione and Farber had a relationship, as it's coyly known, and another female journalist sued over possible resulting bias.
In fact the flu book appears only to be about someone getting hold of a corpse and 'recovering the virus'. It would be nice to be able to say, with other people, that the Times was good, but now isn't; the sad truth of course is that it's garbage now, and was garbage then. The united front is sometimes broken in very strange quarters.
Reader's Digestnot best known for intellectual honesty, in ran an oddly unpanicky piece. As part of the anti-Mbeki moves, the Guardian Fri June 30th ran a large piece decorated with huge photos, by Sarah Boseley.
It's amusing to see Robin Weiss, described as 'a viral oncologist at the Institute of Cancer Research' no virus has been found to cause a human cancerabsurdly described as a 'leading authority on HIV'. And to see that 'he was invited to join Mbeki's panel, but could not make the dates.
So does the Observer of Sunday 2 Julythough this also has been contacted by Naturedue to publish a mass signing in its next issue, on Thursday 13th July. Robin McKie, 'Science Editor', includes a prurient piece on black virgins, and a picture of two blacks making coffins, as contributory evidence.
They mis-spelt Duesberg as 'Duisberg'; I thought conceivably this might be to avoid their piece showing on computer searches. Neither piece quotes Mbeki, or shows any sign of even having had any contact with him: The HIV Myth in He studied history at Sussex. He told me his book never went into paperback; the hardback printing was 2, this may be the UK only.
In my view, although the book has interesting points for example, accounts of Haiti, and of Lauritsen's work, plus satire on the way TV films are made which is far feebler than it could have beenit is mostly an exercise in what might impolitely be called plagiarism, with many pages of material industriously culled from other peoples' books and papers.
Adams had no idea of the weakness of the scientific basis for detection of viruses and HIV, and simply repeats the received wisdom on 'lentiviruses' and so on. After all, why should he have thought to query it? But perhaps I'm a bit unfair to list this book as a failure.
But then it has in all serious issues. As just one example, Joan Shenton told me she discussed her work with the editor of Panoramaa so-called 'flagship' news programme, more than ten times. Another example is 'Science Correspondent' James Wilkinson, selected, perhaps, because he has spectacles and wears white shirts.
Another amusing spin-off surfaced lately: The voiceover was by Isabel Hilton, who, judging by her presentation and level of knowledge, might have been a failed actress trying to rise above her natural job of promoting tampons or cough syrup. And they know it kills.
But they don't know much more about it. Just because they can't afford the medicines they need. Now there's an epidemic and a national emergency. There was an amusing point at which someone, in a church believe it or not says pneumonia or TB is on the death certificate, so how can anyone know about AIDS?
Then we have the corrupt black politicians: For doctors, the safety charges weren't credible.The chance that an HIV-negative person will get HIV from oral sex with an HIV-positive partner is extremely low.
