Vaccines and Autism — Professor Ramos’ Blog

Autism: a possible link to immunizations. Why are there so many parents that have shared the same story of how their child or children that received their 18-month vaccinations suddenly experienced high-fevers, stopped communicating, refused to look at his/her parent(s) or legal guardian, developed chronic ear infections, or other symptoms. We parent(s) or legal guardian(s) would like a answer from the CDC and FDA, but if they admitted immunizations in fact contributed or was found linked to autism would be out of business, along with lawsuits, including this blogger here.

Professionally and personally, as a mother of a now 18-year old son with mild/moderate autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and attention deficit disorder (ADD). When Ean received his scheduled 18-month vaccinations, he wasn’t the same little boy 2-days later. He stopped talking, looking at me, and didn’t smile as much. It seemed the world just had stopped, but knowing something terrible just happened to this almost 2-year old at the time.

We know there is no cure for autism spectrum disorder or autism persuasive disorder (APD), but the federal government should step in and order a full investigation from the CDC from the past 25-years. Yet, they state 1 of 55 individuals are diagnosed with autism. but without any research studies or findings based on actual scientific evidence just theories.

If there are any parents that would like to share their personal stories or account please reply to this article. Thank you.

Social Networking in Education: Blog 3, Week 6


Current Social Networking and Media Technologies to Assist and Enhance Education

How can Social Networking be used for Educational Purposes?

In the 21st century, the way technology can be used in today’s education has its advantages and disadvantages. Technology can certainly help individuals earn their college degrees online that would lead to road of financial success, but it can also become a distraction at the same time (O’Brien, 2012), For example, I have seen first hand students viewing their Facebook page when their supposed to be working on an assignment. Yes, I agree social networking can certainly assist with completing assignments and collaborating with other classmates, such as Q and A with the teacher and other classmates in real time, and taking notes (Bonk & Zhang, 2006). Technology can help individuals reach for success ands excellence but need to block out unnecessary distractions from social networking that isn’t relevant to the topic of subject in a class course (Vanwynsberghe & Verdegem, 2013).

Social networking used for Educational Purposes

I haven’t seen social networking used for educational purposes except for Q and A and live lectures in real time which can be helpful in collaborating with other classmates and the teacher on the subject matter being discussed at taught (O’Brien, 2016). Social networking can be useful in education, but students must learn to block out distractions, such as Facebook alerts, Twitter and live chatrooms (Vanwynsberghe & Verdegem, 2013).

How does the Church use Social Networking for the Kingdom of God?

The Bible does state to preach the word of God to all four corners of the earth in the last days, read Mark 15:16. Social networking can provide services, including sermons and prayer request through video in real time which can reach the lost souls for Christ. I have also seen the downside of social networking within services, including individuals viewing and texting which is extremely disrespectful to the church and God.
