Video: Gates & Microsoft “Get It Done” Campaign – Experts Worried

Once again, a campaign endorsed by Bill Gates is under fire – but this time, not for the reasons one might think.  No stranger to controversy over his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s vaccine program, this time, the controversy is about Gates’ other main affiliation: his multi-billion dollar computer company Microsoft.

GeoBeats News today reports:

Microsoft’s ‘Get It Done’ campaign stresses how easy technology has made it to work from anywhere, but many question if doing so is a good idea. Featured in it are statistics that show the percentages of people who keep plugging away regardless of where they are or what they’re doing.

Those numbers were gathered by Microsoft with the help of Harris Interactive, Inc. Researchers found that among those polled 55% said they need the ability to get work done regardless of where they are. For 19 percent of them that includes in the bathroom.

Nearly half said they’ve remotely participated in meetings while on vacation. Over a quarter reported that they’d performed work-related tasks while out for happy hour.

Though the ad campaign certainly shows the flexibility technology provides, it’s also raised questions about whether taking advantage of it is a good idea. Among the concerns expressed is that individuals are increasingly packing more work into their day at the expense of their work performance and their health.

    Vaccines~Vaccines are “The Saviors” …

    Without polio vaccine

    Many children will be paralyzed
    and some will die later…
even some Adults…
    Don’t ever think that anyone could escape …

    Like my sister-in-law, Layla,
    I never saw her, but my father-in-law 

    Kept narrating about her beautiful face, cleverness…
    
Which I always remembered her without knowing her,
    Even not seeing her photos … feeling her grace…

    Being a pediatrician, I have seen many paralyzed cases…

    most get depressed …no one wants to marry 
a handicap-ed case.

    Although some are highly educated and
    can earn their income without dependence.

    So awake people awake
    
don’t forget paralyzed people 

    who lost happiness…

    One of them was the famous president Roosevelt,

    Who was able to end World War II
with his friend,
    The Red Lion, Sir Winston Churchill 
and their enemy Stalin …

    I can’t say more…
You should advise others
    and not only yourself 
to keep vaccinating
    their children without regrets …

    Autism…OH, YES a new mental sickness,
    
a new phenomena … exaggerated…

    Throwing its causation on the vaccines 

    Without knowing that it could be related to many things else…

    Oh, The Autism…
    It existed a long ago

    But parents were able to tolerate 

    their beloveds’ behavior and more!
    but it seems … no longer…

    I feel Autism …has something to do with DNA…s…
    and not necessarily with the vaccines…

    The days will prove that (-maybe?) I was right in my judgment.
