Q: British Anna Cross cured of Ebola by vacine developed by Chinese scientists---->CC teli

CC teli reports about experimental cure developed by Chinese scientists, which cured UK reservist Corporal A. Cross. She was thankful to Chinese scientists to save her life.

 

Report on Telegraph doesn't mention Chinese:

This one is from Oct. 2014:

A drug called ZMapp (developed in America) has recently been used to treat a number of Ebola cases, but its limited supplies ran out in January this year.

 

A few patients have since been given other experimental versions, amongst them MIL 77, which is a Chinese-produced version of ZMapp. No, China didn't invent it. They copied the science from an already invented Ebola medication, and gave it a different product name.

 

Claiming that China invented this Ebola medication is the same as saying that, because some people drive BYD cars, China invented cars.

 

Unfortunately, Chinese people don't fact check (like I just did), and will now file "China cured Ebola" beside "China invented pizza" in their nation's impressive list of imaginary achievements.

Ha ha. Reminds me of the time a local taxi driver pointed to a train and asked me if the UK had trains. Lol

Chinese G train is the fastest operating train in the world (edit: 'Maglev'). Where else can you travel distance of 1000 km in 4h by train?

Fastest CPU in the world was developed in Tianjin (Tech Uni, I think in 2011 or 2012).

Stop spitting, now! ....and shopping in HK.......

The train thingy is hilarious. I have encountered such cases quite often. "Do you have laundry, double decked buses, chopsticks, ... in your country?" The most hilarious was "Do you have Benz (Mercedes) in Germany?". Another good one at Pudong airport, "Do you have Maglev in Germany?", "China bought the Maglev from Transrapid, a German startup.", "Really? *subtle drop in friendliness*".

There is a lot of talent in China, of that there is no doubt.

When a Chinese scientist wins a nobel prize there will be a national party. It will be well deserved too.

They did not like the last Nobel prize they won.

icniff77, it looks like you don't have access to google or you didn't fact check. If you were Chinese you would be cursing Samsara for making you lose face.

Title of the thread is straight from CC teli news yesterday at 10pm. angel

Short haired female, UK Corporal reservist Scott was interviewed, and she was thankful to 'Chinese scientists for developing Ebola cure'.

I look later on Internet for more news about it (Yahoo-gle, only!), but I found only old links, which they opened some 10' after I posted, because of my snail broadband.

I read last year about 'CDC developed experimental Ebola cure (ZMapp)', buTT.....CC teli said 'UK female cured of Ebola by Chinese scientists developed cure'.

'My' CC teli is the swankiest!

It was mentioned in the BBC and CNN that the drug was Chinese made. Yup Chinese scientists saved her life.

berrycrusher66:

Chinese hackers saved her life. If they didn't get the tech then the scientists wouldn't have been able to make their copy.

Yeah its true for a lot of things. Hacking has benefitted china . western companies have had to invest in research. China has benefitted without paying a dime and stealing the research. However in thus instance there was invesment, creativity and ingenuity. Having been in the pharmaceutical industry I can tell you it is a Chinese developed

There have been quite a few "cures" that kill ebola pathogens but it is costly to mass produce them only to be used in Africa where the only buyer would be the UN.  If there is ever an outbreak in Europe or North America, they will all be racing to be the first into mass production.

Forward Question

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
