She questions COVID-19 statistics’ accuracy

The PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test for COVID-19 tests for an RNA (ribonucleic acid) code sequence which is present in many conditions, not just a single virus termed COVID-19. If the test is not accurate for specific testing of COVID-19, then all the subsequent statistics are also not accurate, including number of deaths caused by COVID-19.

Throw in legitimate questions about lax procedures in determining actual cause of death and, Houston, we have a problem.

Look up Andrew Kaufman, MD, on YouTube to verify this information.

Did you get your Spectrum credit?

Years ago, when public utilities were really local, you could count on them to announce problems and provide credit which might be due. That’s no longer the case.

For example, back in early June, a construction mishap severed a cable in the Kapa‘a area. This caused a Spectrum TV outage for approximately 20 hours. Did you get your credit? Spectrum ads proclaim they are so good that they think they deserve a trophy.

You have to ask for your credit, and mailing a copy of your request to the Public Utility Commission might help.

One would hope current candidates for the Legislature might show some awareness of the lack of activity of the PUC, like no ability of stopping illegal “robo” calls.

Distance learning isn’t easy on anyone

While our children are in distance learning in our homes, it’s hard for them to pay attention because of distractions in a home such as pets, siblings and visitors. That should be understood by a teacher who teaches while our children are distance learning.

Teachers should respect and not tell the owners of the home to calm down when their are visitors in the home. There will be noise and distractions in the home as there are at school.

So with that said, teachers, don’t SHSH or tell us to calm down. Instead, fight to have our children back in school/classrooms.
