An overview of approaches to detect Fake News . What if we could flag Fake News on the Internet? Wouldn’t it be a massive teaching machine in orderly discussing topics?
Coronavirus (9)- Groupthink by the Main Stream Media
Journalism (and politics) hardly seems to do source research, hardly comes up with a rebuttal, and even seems to ignore critically (but serious) sounds. Articles by dissident scientists are collectively refused by the MSM in collective exclusion.
Coronavirus (8) – Groupthink by Experts and Advisory Boards
There are lots of examples of not explored possibilities, omitted information, and neglected statistics by experts. Experts in the Advisory Boards have been canonized. Even the press no longer asks critical questions,
Coronavirus (7) – Groupthink by Governments and Health Authorities
When we proposed in the first blog post about coronavirus that the slow reaction and lax attitude of institutions can partly be explained by the phenomenon of groupthink, we could not imagine that later on groupthink would assume an even more dominant role in tackling the crisis. In the beginning, warnings about an emergent pandemic …

Thinking about the Spread of the Coronavirus (2) – Concepts
In the crucial month of February, in those weeks before the major outbreak in Europe, there was still room to stock up on protective equipment, to scale up the laboratories, to expand the purchase and production of test materials, to prepare for the removal of serum with antibodies in healed patients.

Creative thinking for the living planet – ecospin doctors

When an individual has consistent inability to produce words for things that they want to talk about they are suffering a kind of aphasia.
