FOWC with Fandango — Offer


It’s November 26, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “offer.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

    Offer was a sad child
    (Had a brother Onner)
    (But) Offer/Onner loved each other
    Said the poet Donald

    How quaint Fan……

    Little Onner and Offer. Sigh……

    And Poet Donald bonding them……

    How nice……

    Are all poets nice like Donald Fan? What think you?……

      I think Donald is sometimes off again and sometimes on again.

      Seriously, wow: Natural cross immunity confirmed
      — pre-existing knowledge that coronaviruses and
      rhinoviruses cause our colds and cow pox was 1st
      used (successfully) against smallpox for humanity.

      I recommend starting at 3:33 minutes in; go to ten.
      Or stop at 12:35 and contemplate what’s on-screen.
      I find 13:25 to 14:14 quite interesting per us v China.

      [Separate topic, at 15:15, 66% of Chinese people over
      80 have been double vaccinated, while 68% ‘over-60s’
      have not only been double-jabbed, are boosted also.]

      This article was written in 2012. Funny (really not) how it glosses over decades of history in the United State, when the Sabin vaccine was predominant (and the Salk vaccine was not even carried by most doctors and health institutions) even here — and anyone who questioned the status quo was just asking to be seen as an immoral monster.

      On April 12, 1955, Dr. Thomas Francis Jr., who monitored the Salk trials, called a press conference at the University of Michigan. The conference was broadcast to to 54,000 physicians who gathered in movie theaters; millions of Americans tuned in by radio. After Francis declared Salk’s vaccine to be “safe and effective,” church bells rang out and tearful families embraced. The polio panic would soon be over, as pharmaceutical companies rushed to create hundreds of millions of doses of the new vaccine.

      Sabin’s Europeans trials were also deemed highly successful, and in 1957, his oral vaccine was tested in the United States. In 1963, it became the standard vaccine, and the one used in the effort to eradicate polio around the world. There has always been, with Sabin’s vaccine, a slight chance that the polio virus could mutate back into a dangerous virus—a risk the United States deemed unacceptable. A federal advisory panel recommended Salk’s killed-virus vaccine for use in Americans.

        OPV’s advantages include ease of administration, lower cost, longer immunity, and the ability of the vaccine strains to spread in a community and immunize beyond those directly given the vaccine, thus potentially stopping outbreaks. This latter advantage also carried the very low, but real, risk of live vaccine strains reverting to virulence and directly or indirectly causing polio.

        Sabin’s live attenuated virus vaccine had many advantages over Salk’s vaccine. It was easier and cheaper to manufacture because, unlike Salk’s vaccine, inactivation of the virus by careful treatment with formaldehyde was not required. Sabin’s vaccine was also efficacious at lower doses, thus requiring fewer quantities to be manufactured. Administering Sabin’s vaccine did not require syringes or needles. Vaccination involved swallowing a drop of fluid on a sugar cube. The live attenuated virus first infected the intestine, and elicited both IgG- and IgA-type antibodies. (IgG protects the blood and IgA protects surfaces of organs.)

        IgA antibodies induced by Sabin’s vaccine prevented the poliovirus from attaching to and infecting intestinal cells. Salk’s vaccine, in contrast, only induced an IgG response, so it was able to block the spread of the virus only in the blood and nervous system. If someone vaccinated with Salk’s vaccine got infected, the virus could still infect the intestine and potentially spread to others via the feces. For reasons that are not completely understood, Sabin’s vaccine induces lifetime immunity, while Salk’s offered protection only for a few years. For these reasons, Sabin’s vaccine soon became the standard vaccine used around the world.

          Sabin’s is live and oral (the “O” in OPV); contrasted with Salk’s — not live and not oral (the “I” being for injected). A cholera vaccine is reported on below; oral but not live.

            This might be my favorite video, on this subject, that I’ve shared thus far. This doctor (guest of a pharmacist for the discourse) says would-be doctors aren’t taught much if anything about the mouth in medical school. He had to be self-motivated to seek out this information and collaborate.

            The video IS indeed available — just not without selecting the underlined words lower in the rectangle (to “Watch on YouTube” instead of embedded here).
