COVID-19 and the False Science of Computer Models:

How to Defeat Them in Court

TASA ID: 2409

America and the world have devastated their economies based on the false science of computer models, which outputted millions of potential deaths from a respiratory virus known as COVID-19.  In America alone, economic damages to small businesses and farmers are in the trillions of dollars.  How did this come about?

CPS Checklist for Discovery

(While this applies primarily to California Child Welfare Agencies, it can be applicable to Child Welfare Agencies in the counties of other states as well.)

TASA ID: 1220

If you have not had a great deal of experience in litigation against county child welfare agencies, then there are some things which are helpful to know up front.  Like most people being sued, CPS agencies don’t like it.  They see themselves as “on the side of the angels” for children being abused and neglected and as proponents for strengthening families.  And indeed, the vast majority of the time, they are.  However, owing to a number of factors, including caseloads, insufficient staffing, divergent levels of skills, personal bias, ill-serving mindsets, and lack of resources; to name a few, mistakes will occur.  Sometimes in my experience, they are unintended. They may not be deliberate owing to the press of work that rushes a judgment or fails to look at all the details, including exculpatory evidence.

Posted with permission. Originally published on Review Of Optometry,January 15, 2020.

A 45-year-old Hispanic male presented to clinic with a chief complaint of progressive blurry vision that started approximately four days earlier in his right eye. Accompanying symptoms included light sensitivity and ocular irritation. The patient denied any ocular discharge, ocular trauma or recent illness.

The patient’s ocular history was remarkable for penetrating keratoplasty (PK), which was performed 25 to 30 years ago in both eyes. At this visit, the patient denied using a topical steroid for maintenance therapy. His best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/70 OD, 20/50 OS. His anterior segment findings are provided (Figure 1). We observed no palpable preauricular node (PAN) at that visit. The rest of the exam was unremarkable.

What Authority or Power do I Have as a Security Officer?

TASA ID: 10544

Randy A. Martens is a Certified Protection Officer (CPO).  We don’t know Randy but can tell you he has raised a serious issue, that many security and protection officers face day in and day out.  

Randy said, “One of the leading questions asked by security professionals nationwide is, “What power do I really have?” 

In all fairness, this is a legitimate question and the answer to that question is not always simplistic! 
 
Typically, a security officer is hired to do one thing: protect people, assets, and information. 

Part IV: Bullying, Harassment, Teasing & Hazing

Lawrence J. Fennelly CPOI, CSSM and Marianna Perry, CPP, CPOI

TASA ID: 10544

"Barbara Coloroso (2003), on page 13 in her book, The Bully, The Bullied and the Bystander, defines bullying as:

 "a conscious, willful, and deliberate hostile activity intended to harm, induce fear through the threat of further aggression, and create terror."  

Coloroso contends that four elements characterize all bullies, no matter what sex, age or job title: 

(1) an imbalance of power, in which the bully is bigger, stronger or more favorably situated than the victim; 

(2) the bully has an intent to harm, knowing he or she will inflict emotional or physical pain, and revels in the fact;  

(3) a threat of further aggression exists, in which the bully and victim both know that this act of aggression will not be the last; and 

(4) terror persists-the extreme, continuing agitation of the victim. 

The essence of bullying, according to Coloroso, is not anger but contempt. The bully sees the bullied as not worth respect or empathy.  The bully is consummately arrogant."
