N.J. teacher denies pulling off student's hijab, report says

Source: NJ.com

A South Orange-Maplewood School District teacher accused of pulling a hijab off the head of a 7-year-old Muslim student in school last week has denied the incident occurred, according to a report.

Tamar Herman, a teacher at Seth Boyden Elementary School, said in a statement from her attorney that the second grade student wasn’t wearing a hijab and was instead wearing a hoodie, NBC reported.

“In accordance with school policy, Ms. Herman directed a student in her class to pull down the hood on a hooded sweatshirt because it was blocking her eyes - and immediately rescinded that request when she realized that the student was wearing the hood in place of, rather than on top of, her usual hijab,” Herman’s attorney Samatha Harris told NBC.

The Jewish teacher said the student was wearing a hoodie (against school dress code), not a hijab (permitted by law), while the mother said it was a hijab, not a hoodie.
Initial social media headlines stated as fact that a hijab was removed.
The cameras will have the last word.

Covid study linking vaccines to rare side effect of myocarditis was wrong, researchers admit

Source: Independent UK

A research study that linked a very rare side effect to the Covid-19 mRNA vaccines has been withdrawn by researchers after they made a major mathematical error.

The Canadian study attracted headlines after it suggested there was a 1 in 1,000 risk of people developing myocarditis or inflammation of the heart after receiving the Moderna or Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines.

But the paper’s conclusions were wrong, and the calculation flawed.

The numbers used by the researchers, from the Ottawa Heart Institute, underestimated the amount of vaccines delivered in Ottawa over a two-month period with the result being 25 times smaller than the true figure.

Shame on the Ottawa Heart Institute.
They gave antivaxxers fuel with their crappy methods.
