This week we first learn about how the 1854 cholera outbreak led to advances in the knowledge about diseases and outbreaks thanks to the clever and rigorous work by the physician John Snow, now regarded as one of the founders of modern epidemiology. Pope Francis is getting closer to his vision of “a poor church for the poor”, perhaps just a little bit faster than he bargained for as the pandemic is hitting the Catholic finances. Then Andras delves into how we can begin to measure the success of covid-19 related restrictions. In the news this week: – Swedish Snake Oil advertisement is struck down – Archaeologist sentenced for faking Basque finds – Climate more sensitive to CO2 emissions than thought? – Who killed the Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme? – Szekesfehervar budget cuts – nonessential vaccines are first to go – The Aspen Institute’s ‘Good10 – The Pandemic Issue’ discussing many aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic – The return of the Mayan calendar – some myths refuse to die – University of Vienna found a way to inoculate medical students about SCAM The prize for being Really Wrong goes to doctors in Northern Ireland that continue to obstruct abortions even after the recent legalization! Enjoy! Segments: Intro; Greetings; This Week; Pontus Pokes the Pope; News; Really Wrong; Quote and Farewell; Outro; Out-takes Events Calendar: http://theesp.eu/events_in_europe
