Q: Flue epidemic in USA ?

I've been hearing through Chinese sources about a huge death toll in the USA from the flue.
However not a thing from the Australian media.
So is it true and we are not supposed to know?

There is a higher than normal number of deaths, or there have been some publicized deaths. 

Epidemic, I don't think so because this could be publicized to increase flu vaccine sales.

As far as China reporting, China just likes to report negative stories about the US while banning news about what's going on in China.

ambivalentmace:

yes, like electricity usage in China was only up 1.4 percent in 2017 from the previous year, a good indication of the real GDP number.

I hope the news in Japan is true that it made a breakthrough with a medicine that can cure the flu in one day.

 

But there are many strains of the flu.

It’s not just an epidemic, it’s an epidemic with a comparatively high fatality rate.

The influenza pandemic of 1918-1919 killed more people than the Great War, known today as World War I (WWI), at somewhere between 20 and 40 million people. It has been cited as the most devastating epidemic in recorded world history. More people died of influenza in a single year than in four-years of the Black Death Bubonic Plague from 1347 to 1351. Known as "Spanish Flu" or "La Grippe" the influenza of 1918-1919 was a global disaster.

I don't know at what point something becomes an epidemic rather than an outbreak or whatever you'd call it before it gets that serious, but is it actually an epidemic?

 

icnif77:

By the number of people who are  in-flu-ated with virus.

 

So, we got 'in'&'flu'& 'enza', i.e 'influenza'. I'd say origin of word might be 'inflation'.

It has been in the news since early Jan. It's global.

I was hit with it the week before CNY. Put me on my back for the full 2 weeks. Still not over it.

Its a persistant bugger.

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
