If verified vaccine hoaxes — identified by World Health Organization and the US Centers for Disease Control and Preve

vaccine misinformation, we will exclude the entire group or Page from recommendations, reduce these groups an
d Pages’ distribution in News Feed and Search, and reject ads with this misinformation.”
A page labeled “Your ad preferences” reveals how the social media site catego

ce directed to their “ad preferences” page, half said they are not comfortable with the company creating such a list.

before we get 100% of the ca

p said. It was unclear to whom Trump was specifically referencing but former
Defense Secretary Gen. James M
attis resigned in December over disagreements with Trump over how to
pull troops out of Syria.
Trump said that while in Iraq, he asked generals there why it would take
two years to “knock off two or three or four
percent, which is what we had left.” He said that a general he called “Raisin’
Cain” then told him, “‘It won’t, sir, if we atta

China has set up a national work group for immunization planning that will suggest ways
to ensure vaccines are safe, the head of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention said on Monday.
The work group, led by a vice-minister of health, will analyze all incidents involving vaccine safety over the past few years to find
the root sources of problems, Gao Fu, head of the center, said at a news conference. He didn’t name the minister.
“Vaccines made in China are some of the best in the world,” said Gao, who is also a member of China’s top poli
tical advisory body. “We should have no doubt about the role of vaccines in disease prevention or the quality of vaccines made in China.”
For example, he said, by promoting immunization, some infectious diseases that
once seriously harmed people’s health in China, such as smallpox, have been eliminated.
Hepatitis B once infected more than 10 percent of the population of China, but now only 0.3 p
ercent of children under 5 years old are carriers because of mandatory immunization.
Gao made the comments in light of a series of incidents involving vaccine safety over the past few years.

Britain is a particularly appealing target for interference as a close

When the content exposed by the news media on the Internet shocked the vast number of netize
ns, but the matter may not be true. You see, the chairman of Kunlun Wanwei was exposed to fraud. The content called Zhou Yahui’s transnational fra
ud. Once the news came out, Kunlun Wanwei Public Relations made the latest response and called it a pure slander. Let’s have a look.
Recently, an investor who claimed to be an ICST project was quoted by the self-Media as saying: “
Because of the blatant fraud of the ICST project side, the ICST tokens have been traded off the shelves at zero price; the StarMaker assets have been sold for two th
ings, and there is no hope of returning the capital.” And the accusation is directed at Zhou Yahui, chairman of Kunlun Wanwei.
Among the explosive materials provided by investors, Zhou Yahui complained that in the fourth quarter of 2017, he led the initiation of the ICST Block Chain Project to pass StarMaker
assets and conduct multiple rounds of ICO public financing, raising hundreds of millions of yuan. During 2018, Zho
u Yahui delayed promoting the commercial application of ICST Block Chain Agreement on StarMaker and refused to use the Maker Platform to buy ba
ck the net profit of each quarter. ICST; Zhou Yahui will make StarMaker one production, two sales and many other matters.
In response to the above complaint, the responsible person of Kunlun Wanwei Group’s Public Re
lations Department responded to reporters that this matter is pure defamation, and we are going through legal proce
dures. “(This matter) is a completely organized malicious attack, and we will follow up with public action as you can see.”
After Zhou Yahui’s transnational fraud was reported, a lot of netizens were shocked to hear about it. What they reported was only
defamation. Now they are going through legal procedures. The defamator will receive a notice from the court and face punishment more likely.
