I love Ella Fitzgerald
I just did an offhand Ella Fitzerald-inspired meme
Belarusian President Lukashenko came to beg for more money from PUtin yesterday, so
@Robusto Ella sings this song nicely too
 
12:26 AM
@CowperKettle Absolutely. Ella was amazing. Iconic.

The Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male (informally referred to as the "Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment," the "Tuskegee Syphilis Study," the "Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the African American Male," the "U.S. Public Health Service Syphilis Study at Tuskegee," or the "Tuskegee Experiment") was an ethically abusive study conducted between 1932 and 1972 by the United States Public Health Service (PHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The purpose of this study was to observe the natural history of untreated syphilis. Although the African-American...

A mortsafe was a contraption designed to protect graves from disturbance. Resurrectionists had supplied the schools of anatomy in Scotland since the early 18th century. This was due to the necessity for medical students to learn anatomy by attending dissections of human subjects, which was frustrated by the very limited allowance of dead bodies – for example the corpses of executed criminals – granted by the government, which controlled the supply. == Official inaction == The authorities turned a blind eye to grave-rifling because surgeons and students were working to advance medical knowledge...
A good name for a rock group

FFS.
@CowperKettle: Were there pro-Navalny demonstrations in your city?
 
2:05 PM
@Robusto Yes, with about 5000 people
I came to the meeting place but it was all cordoned off
But later some people managed to get together and demonstrated into the night.
Some were detained.

@CowperKettle Nice. Did it get any coverage in the news?

@Robusto Yes, a lot of coverage, including on our local website, E1.ru

@Cerberus Cute!
 
3:33 PM
Merci.
@CowperKettle Navalny seems to be doing better, with access to proper doctors?
 
@CowperKettle This was one of the incidents that really started a lot of oversight into medical investigation and ethics: IRB (Institutional Review Boards) and...
hm
and I'm sure other things. I can't think of them.
Thalidomide?
I think that added Phase I or II to the RCT protocol?
I don't know.
I also don't know how this affected other countries, if at all.
 
4:22 PM
@Cerberus He stopped his hunger strike, although proper doctors were not allowed to him. I thing the main goal was achieved, he gained some publicity, which should be the main point of a hunger strike.
The more publicity, the less are the changes that Putin and his thugs will finish him off in prison.
 
4:45 PM
Somewhy I make a lot of typos.
"I thing", "the less are the changes".
Odd.
 
@CowperKettle Oh, I read he finally got proper medical care now.

@Mitch Thalidomide was first marketed in 1957 in West Germany, where it was available over the counter.[5][6]
There was more, but the message was too long. Never approved in US.

8:55 PM
@Xanne So does that mean the 'approval process' didn't exist in the US and the thalidomides problems encouraged oversight or was there an approval process before then (in the US) but not good enough to prevent the widespread use of Thalidomide in the US? or I have I made some wrong assumptions?
 
9:12 PM
@Mitch of course there was an approval process. There was some sort of an approval process in the 1800s, you could argue. But who would've thought seemingly unrelated drugs could result in catastrophic events for neonates?

there are different Standard Models in different fields
Standard Model of particle physics
 
10:08 PM
@M.A.R. OK, but what was that process (in the US, or any country). I've taken more than one Medical Ethics training course in the US (2 hours long, multiple choice, encouraged to 'look at the text to help answer questions') and they all start with Tuskegee, and mention Thalidomide, and like three or four US laws that supposedly respond to those catastrophes.
but like you said surely there was something before, and different measures in different countries (who have had different ... uh... situations (eg Nazi experiments))
I need a quick reference for what it all was.
@Bohemianrelativist What are some other ones?
 
@Mitch I am leaving you to add.
 
@Bohemianrelativist The Standard Model of Cosmology
The standard model of memory (which is not physics)
The standard model of memory consolidation (which is both not physics (still) and also not just memory)
 
The standard model of arithmetic (again not physics)
The standard model of viral dynamics (hey that one is very topical)
There. That's it.
I searched the entire internet and that's all I found.
The standard model of physics goes by a hundred names including chemistry, elementary particles, matter, etc etc
In my own extended personal experience, -no- one talks about the standard model of arithmetic. But people sure go wild over the -non-standard- models.
Like they're some kind of weirdos

@Mitch I wonder what is Standard Model of Cosmology; is it the Big Bang, inflation and current cosmic accelerating expansion? I seem to see the term Standard Model of Cosmology in some paper several days ago, but cannot recall where I saw it.
 
The ΛCDM (Lambda cold dark matter) or Lambda-CDM model is a parameterization of the Big Bang cosmological model in which the universe contains three major components: first, a cosmological constant denoted by Lambda (Greek Λ) and associated with dark energy; second, the postulated cold dark matter (abbreviated CDM); and third, ordinary matter. It is frequently referred to as the standard model of Big Bang cosmology because it is the simplest model that provides a reasonably good account of the following properties of the cosmos: the existence and structure of the cosmic microwave background the...
