Did Paul Duncan Die From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Did Paul Duncan Die From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Did 35 year-old former NFL player Paul Duncan die from a vaccine-induced cardiac arrest?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Paul Duncan Died From Vaccine-Induced Cardiac Arrest!

Right after news broke that 35 year-old former NFL player Paul Duncan died from a cardiac arrest while going for a run, people started claiming that his heart attack was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

“The Notre Dame football program is mourning the death of former offensive lineman Paul Duncan, who died on July 15 when he went into cardiac arrest on a run in his neighborhood.”

… another young sudden death.

What a shame. It’s terrible you have to think this but my mind immediately goes to – was he vaccinated?

Denver broncos 35 yo Paul Duncan dies of a heart attack while running. That happens to all young athletes these days, o like Rafael Nadal, at US open! Confused as to why? Research some for yourself the answer is clear.

No Evidence Paul Duncan Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Paul Duncan Died From Cardiac Arrest

Paul Duncan went into cardiac arrest while running in his Atlanta, Georgia neighbourhood on Friday, July 15, 2022. He was hospitalised, but pronounced brain dead the next day.

His wife, Ellen Duncan, confirmed this in her Instagram post on Saturday, July 16, 2022.

Yesterday, Friday July 15th, Paul went into cardiac arrest while on a run in our neighborhood. Today he was pronounced brain dead. We will have a medical examination to understand cause of death.

His body will be donated to people in need of organs and to medical research. Details on funeral arrangements to follow.

Thank you for your prayer and support.

You will note that she did not even mention the COVID-19 vaccine as a cause of his death.

Fact #2 : An Autopsy Will Be Conducted On Paul Duncan

As his wife explained, an autopsy will be conducted on Paul Duncan, to understand his cause of death.

Paul Duncan’s autopsy appears to be completed and his body released to his family, as his funeral mass has been scheduled for Monday, July 25, 2022.

Until that autopsy report is revealed by his wife, anyone who tells you that Paul Duncan died from this or that cause is LYING to you.

Fact #3 : Many Athletes Die Unexpectedly Every Year

What many of us do not realise is that many athletes die unexpectedly every year, and the number has been steadily increasing every year.

This chart from the Maron study shows a progressive rise in sudden death reports of 6% per year, from 1980 to 2006.

In fact, the number of sudden deaths in young and fit athletes more than quadrupled from 1980 to 2006!

This debunks the claim that such a rise in sudden death must be due to the COVID-19 vaccine, which obviously did not exist back then.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Paul Duncan Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Paul Duncan was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Unless we know for sure he was vaccinated, anyone who tells you he died from the vaccine is simply lying.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Paul Duncan was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Marion Barber III : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine SADS!

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber III died from a heat stroke, not the COVID-19 vaccine!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Marion Barber III Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

People keep claiming that former Dallas Cowboys running back, Marion Barber III, died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Many insisted that he is “yet another” case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

Marion Barber III Died Due To Heat Stroke, Officials Say – sounds more like SAD SUDDEN ADULT DEATH SYNDROME !! I am very sorry for this unexpected loss and for his family. #SAD #COVID #VACCINE

When your child dies from the vaccine, you are a bad parent. Do not deserve the pleasure of having offspring. #StoptheShots For more see blm loving, jab mandate enforcing #NFL

TOTALLY normal, nothing to see here, not at ALL related to the COVID Vaccine, along with Ray Liotta and Andrew Fletcher. Marion Barber, former Dallas Cowboys running back, dead at 38 #COVID19 #COVIDVACCINE #VaccineSideEffects #rayliotta #andrewfletcher

Marion Barber III Died From Heat Stroke, Not Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Police Found Marion Barber III Dead At Home

On Wednesday, 1 June 2022, a tenant complained about water leaking from Marion Barber III’s apartment. However, apartment staff were unable to contact Barber, and his apartment was locked from the inside.

The Frisco, Texas police was then asked to conduct a welfare check. When they forced their way into the apartment and found 38 year-old Marion Barber III dead.

The police incident report noted that family members had not heard from Barber for six days before his body was found. They also noted that Barber “was known to have a history of medical problems and mental health concerns“.

Fact #2 : Autopsy Report Confirmed Marion Barber III Died From Heat Stroke

The Collin County Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled that the Marion Barber III died from a heat stroke, according to his autopsy report. His death was ruled to be an accident.

According to the autopsy report, police officers found exercise equipment in his unit, and that one of the bathtub faucets in Barber’s apartment was left running with the temperature set to 91°F (33°F).

The coroner noted in his report, “Mr. Barber was known to exercise in sauna-like conditions“.

This autopsy report conclusively confirmed that the cause of death for Marion Barber III was a heat stroke, not the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #3 : Marion Barber III Did Not Die In His Sleep

Many anti-vaccination activists claimed that Marion Barber III died in his sleep from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

As the autopsy report confirmed – Marion Barber III died while exercising in sauna-like conditions, not while he was sleeping.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Marion Barber III Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Marion Barber III was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccines.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Jaylon Ferguson Autopsy : Cause Of Death Was Drug OD!

An autopsy has confirmed that Ravens linebacker, Jaylon Ferguson, died from  a drug overdose, not the COVID-19 vaccine!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Jaylon Ferguson Died From Vaccine-Induced SADS!

Just hours after news broke that Baltimore Ravens linebacker, Jaylon Ferguson died, people started claiming that he died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

Vax death 100000% add jaylon Ferguson to that list. 25 yrs old natural causes my left nut

Athletes …. natural causes? More like Vax side effects. Sorry but 25, 26 yr old athletes don’t die from natural causes and it’s happening non stop. Soccer, cricket, rugby, football, basketball…. wake up folks. This isn’t natural

Jaylon Ferguson dead at 26 from vaccine. CBS needs to expose dangers of vaccines.

NFL rocked by tragedy as Jaylon Ferguson dies. Vaccine Deaths. Dropping like Flies. Murdered by their own Govt and the WEF. Right in front of your eyes but your all too Indoctrinated. So sad.

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) ? #Vaccines

Jaylon Ferguson Autopsy : Cause Of Death Was Drug Overdose!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Jaylon Ferguson Died From Drug Overdose

On July 1, 2022, Bruce Goldfarb – spokesman for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner – said that Jaylon Ferguson’s cause of death was the “combined effects of fentanyl and cocaine“.

His death was ruled an accident, based on that autopsy finding. The written autopsy report is not available yet, but they plan to have one completed within 90 days.

So let that be the final word on Jaylon Ferguson – he didn’t die from COVID-19 vaccination. He died from a drug overdose.

Fact #2 : Jaylon Ferguson Was Found Unresponsive

The Baltimore police received a report of a “questionable death” at a home in Baltimore’s Harwood neighbourhood on Tuesday night, 21 June 2022.

When they arrived at around 11:25 PM, and they found Jaylon Ferguson unresponsive and being treated by medics.

The medics tried to resuscitate Ferguson but he never regained consciousness, and was pronounced death at the scene. Baltimore police spokeswoman Niki Fennoy said in a statement :

Once there, officers located 26-year-old Jaylon Ferguson, unresponsive, being treated by medics. Ferguson never regained consciousness and was pronounced dead on the scene by medics.

Fact #3 : Police Investigated His Death As Possible Drug Overdose

The Baltimore police stated that they did not suspect foul play in his death, and that there were no signs of trauma on his body.

However, they were investigating it as an “open questionable death“, and specifically looking into the possibility of a drug overdose, not the COVID-19 vaccine.

Jaylon Ferguson’s body was taken to the Baltimore medical examiner’s office early Wednesday morning, where an autopsy will be conducted to determine his cause of death.

We are not ruling anything out. We don’t determine cause of death, but we consider the possibility that it could be an overdose.

According to The Baltimore Banner, a friend who found Ferguson unresponsive told police at the scene that Ferguson told him earlier in the night that he was “Xanied up”, and an unidentified pink powder substance was found in a sock.

The friend also said that Ferguson had been going through a difficult time after the recent death of his grandmother, and a fire at his home in Owings Mills, and that he was suffering from depression.

Fact #4 : Jaylon Ferguson Was Likely Unvaccinated

Jaylon Ferguson is said to be unvaccinated against COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

While there is no official word on his vaccination status (due to NFL policy), here are the reasons why Ferguson is unlikely to be vaccinated :

  1. NFL does not require players to be vaccinated against COVID-19. It however requires players to get tested.
  2. Jaylon Ferguson tested positive for COVID-19 on Sept. 24, 2021, and missed the Ravens’ game against the Detroit Lions a few days later.
  3. Under NFL protocols, fully-vaccinated players who test positive can return within 5 days, as long as they are asymptomatic and produce two negative tests 24 hours apart.
  4. Under NFL protocols, unvaccinated players who test positive must quarantine for at least 10 days.
  5. Ferguson missed three games and only returned to practice on October 13, 2021 – 19 days after he tested positive for COVID-19.

The length of his absence strongly suggests that he was one of the few unvaccinated players on the Ravens’ roster.

Short of an official statement by the NFL or Ferguson’s family, this is about as good as it gets, when it comes to evidence whether Jaylon was vaccinated or not.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Did Shebby Singh Die From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose?

Did former national footballer Shebby Singh die from the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose?

Take a look at the new “viral” claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2022-01-16 : Added details of his post-mortem results..

Originally posted @ 2022-01-13

 

Claim : Shebby Singh Died From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose!

Right after news spread of former Malaysian national footballer Shebby Singh’s death, out comes the claim that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

Serbegeth Singh (Shebby) had his booster vaccine jab on 7th Jan. The next day he felt unwell but recovered in 2 days.

However on the 12th Jan he decidede [sic] to go cycling and suffered a heart attack while cyclrng [sic] and passed away. So guys after you receive your booster please do not exert yourselves for at least 10 days.

 

No Evidence Shebby Singh Died From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose!

Whenever a celebrity dies, it is astounding how quickly people are claiming that his/her death is due to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Look at how people recently claimed that Betty White and Bob Saget both died from their COVID-19 vaccine booster dose!

Yet the evidence shows that neither celebrities died from the COVID-19 vaccines, and the claims were just anti-vaccination FAKE NEWS.

Here is what we know so far about Shebby Singh, and whether he died from the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

Fact #1 : Shebby Singh Died From Heart Attack

Serbegeth Singh, popularly known as Shebby Singh, collapsed while cycling in Sunway Iskandar, in Iskandar Puteri in Johor Bahru, at around 7 PM on 12 January 2022.

According to Iskandar Puteri district police chief, Assistant Commissioner Dzulkhairi Mukhtar, Shebby was believed to have died from a heart attack.

This was later confirmed by his autopsy.

Fact #2 : Shebby Singh Autopsy Completed

On 13 January 2022, Serbegeth’s son, Sonuljit Singh stated that his father’s autopsy had been completed, after which his remains were taken to the Nirvana Memorial Centre at Jalan Skudai, for the public to pay their last respects.

His remains would later be taken to the Loke Yew Crematorium in Kuala Lumpur on 14 January 2022, where the public there can pay their respects from 3 PM to 4 PM.

Fact #3 : Autopsy Confirmed He Died From Heart Attack

On 16 January 2022, Sonuljit spoke up against the fake news claiming that his father died from the COVID-19 booster shot.

He said that the post mortem indicated that his father died from a heart attack due to existing blockage. He also said that his father had cardiac fibrosis and likely had a silent attack in the past.

“The doctors told us the cause of his death was 99 percent related to a heart attack as his post mortem showed three of his coronary arteries having blockages.

All his vital organs were in perfect working condition, and there were also no signs of any allergic reaction.

His heart was ready to go at any time, and it had nothing to do with the booster shot.”

Sonuljit also shared that his father, siblings and many relatives had a history of similar heart-related ailments.

Fact #4 : Side Effects Are Evidence Of Vaccines Working

Vaccines work by triggering our body’s immune system to identify the pathogen, and make antibodies against it.

Whenever we get vaccinated, we should expect to get some side effects – muscle ache, fever, etc. These side effects generally dissipate quickly, usually within 1-3 days.

That’s our body’s reaction to what it thinks is a real infection. It’s really no different than how our body would behave if we actually got infected.

So, it would not be surprising if Serbegeth felt unwell for 2 days after getting his COVID-19 vaccination.

Fact #5 : No Post-Vaccination Exercise Restriction

Health authorities generally advise against strenuous exercise after getting vaccinated, but there is no actual restriction on exercising after getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

The advice is generally meant to avoid accidents if people are exercising while having a headache or fever, and to avoid people conflating post-exercise pain or injury with the vaccine.

Only adolescents and young adults (below 30 years of age) who received the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine need to avoid strenuous exercise and watch out for symptoms of myocarditis / pericarditis :

Even if we assume that he received the Pfizer booster dose, Serbegeth was 61 years old, and very, very unlikely to suffer from the rare adverse effect of myocarditis / pericarditis.

Fact #6 : Pericarditis / Myocarditis Is NOT Heart Attack

Now, we do not know if Serbegeth even received the Pfizer vaccine, but I have to point out that pericarditis and myocarditis are not the same thing as a heart attack (myocardial infarction).

Myocarditis / pericarditis is the INFLAMMATION of the heart muscle (myocarditis) or outer lining of the heart (pericarditis), causing chest pain, shortness of breath or feelings of a pounding or fast-beating heart.

It is generally mild, and most will respond well to medicine and rest, and recover completely. They can usually return to normal daily activities once their symptoms improve / resolve.

Myocardial infarction is the IRREVERSIBLE DEATH of the heart muscle due to a PROLONGED LACK of oxygen supply. This is a medical emergency which will result in death if not treated quickly.

Individuals who survive a myocardial infarction will not recover completely, because you cannot restore the dead heart muscle.

Fact #7 : Pericarditis / Myocarditis Is Treatable

Again, we do NOT know if Serbegeth even received the Pfizer vaccine, but I have to point out that even if he did – it would not result in a heart attack.

Myocarditis and pericarditis from vaccines is “often mild, and cases usually resolve after a few days with treatment and rest“.

They also result in noticeable symptoms, so people generally seek treatment before anything serious happens :

  • chest pain
  • shortness of breath
  • heart palpitations / pounding heart

As an avid sportsman, Serbegeth would have noted those symptoms, and sought medical attention. It is doubtful that he would have gone cycling while experiencing such symptoms.

Did Christian Eriksen Collapse After Receiving Pfizer Vaccine?

Did Danish footballer Christian Eriksen collapse on the field after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine?

Find out what’s going viral, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Christian Eriksen Collapsed After Receiving Pfizer Vaccine!

After Danish footballer Christian Eriksen collapsed during a Euro 2020 match, antivaxxers started claiming that it happened after he received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Tweets from Luboš Motl, a Czech theoretical physicist, and GeraYaYo2 – a Canadian citizen, went viral recently.

They have since deleted two of their tweets, but the Internet never forgets…

Luboš Motl : Christian Eriksen, the Danish player who suddenly collapsed on the pitch, plays for Inter Milan. The chief medic and cardiologist of that Italian team confirmed on an Italian radio station that Eriksen has received the Pfizer vaccine on May 31st.

GeraYaYo2 : Inter Milan Chief Medic and Cardiologist confirmed that he received the Pfizer vaccine 12 days ago. he spoke an hour ago on Radio Sportiva from Italy.

GeraYaYo2 : Christian Eriksen, a perfectly fit soccer player who plays for one of the top soccer teams in the world and has the best medical attention, collapsed on the field today due to heart failure. Thanks [sic] God they were able to bring him back to life.

He was given Pfizer a few days ago

 

No, Christian Eriksen Did Not Collapse Because Of Pfizer Vaccine!

Like the vast majority of negative news about COVID-19 vaccines, this is yet more FAKE NEWS created by antivaxxers.

They did not even hesitate to LIE about someone’s medical emergency to push their agenda. Absolutely disgraceful and shameless!

Fact #1 : Christian Eriksen Was Not Vaccinated Against COVID-19

The truth is Christian Eriksen was not vaccinated against COVID-19.

Inter Milan CEO Giuseppe Marotta confirmed this on 13 June 2021, stating, “He did not have Covid and was not vaccinated either.

Luboš Motl refused to accept that, claiming “my source could have been untrue, I am just unsure enough” and “It is not settled for me at this moment.

Is Luboš a cardiologist? Does he have evidence to the contrary? No. So ignore his ignorant blather.

Fact #2 : Radio Sportiva Denied The Claim

Radio Sportiva denied that the claim, stating,

The information reported in the tweet mentioned is false. We have never reported any opinion from the Inter medical staff regarding Christian Eriksen’s condition. Please remove the content from the tweet author, otherwise we will be forced to take action.

Fact #3 : Most Euro 2020 Players Not Vaccinated

There was no requirement for soccer players to vaccinate against COVID-19 before playing in Euro 2020.

That’s because they are all healthy young adults, most of whom do not yet qualify for COVID-19 vaccinations (which are being prioritised for older people with co-morbidities).

The Spanish squad, for instance, received emergency COVID-19 vaccination on 11 June 2021 – the first day of Euro 2020, and just 3 days before their first game.

Why? Because their team captain Sergio Busquets and Diego Llorente tested positive for COVID-19!

Ironically, even GeraYaYo2 acknowledged that on 15 June 2021, stating that 870 Euro 2020 soccer players were not vaccinated.

Fact #4 : Christian Eriksen Had Cardiac Arrest, Not Cardiac Failure

GeraYaYo2 claimed that Christian Eriksen collapsed due to cardiac failure. That is FALSE.

Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest, and we know this to be true because he was successfully resuscitated by CPR and a defibrillator.

Cardiac failure happens gradually and over a long period of time. It doesn’t result in a sudden collapse like that. Rather, your heart has trouble pumping blood to the rest of your body, so you feel weak and breathless.

Cardiac arrest happens suddenly – your heart stops pumping and you collapse immediately – unconscious and (usually) not breathing, which was exactly what happened to Christian Eriksen.

A person with heart failure will not look healthy, whereas cardiac arrest can happen even to people who are young and ultra-fit like soccer players.

Heart failure can be treated with medication, but a cardiac arrest is a medical emergency – you will die if you are not immediately resuscitated.

Fact #5 : Christian Eriksen To Be Fitted With A Heart Starter

On 17 June 2021, Denmark’s team doctor, Morten Boesen, said that Christian Eriksen will be fitted with an ICD due to heart “rhythm disturbances”.

“Christian has accepted the solution and the plan has moreover been confirmed by specialists nationally and internationally who all recommend the same treatment.”

Known colloquially as a heart starter, the ICD (Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator) is designed to automatically correct most life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms).

Scott Morrison : Did He Mistake Maradona For Madonna?

Like Donald Trump, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is being laughed at for mistaking Maradona for Madonna!

Find out what’s going on, and what the facts really are!

 

Scott Morrison : Did He Mistake Maradona For Madonna?

A screenshot of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s tweet about Madonna’s death is tickling people all over the Internet.

Sad to wake up to the news of Madonna passing away overnight.

Material Girl is one of my all time favourite albums. RIP

 

Scott Morrison Madonna Death Tweet : Just A Parody Account

The truth is Scott Morrison never posted that tweet. It was posted by a parody account, and people just assumed it was genuine.

Fact #1 : It Was Posted By The Scott Morrison Parody Account

We traced the origin of the viral screenshot to this tweet by the Scott Morrison PM of Australia (parody) account.

Fact #2 : Donald Trump Tweet On Madonna Was Also False

US President Donald Trump was also said to have mistaken Diego Maradona for Madonna. However, it looks like the tweet was edited, and not an actual tweet.

Fact #3 : Many People Are Mistaking Maradona For Madonna

That said, many people have been posting messages of condolences about Madonna’s premature death… so let us be very clear.

The Argentinian footballer, Diego Maradona (left) was the one who died. Not the American singer-songwriter, Madonna (right).

Maradona : Donald Trump Mistook Him For Madonna?

The Internet is laughing at US President Donald Trump who apparently mistook Maradona for Madonna!

Find out what’s going on, and what the facts really are!

 

Maradona : Did Donald Trump Mistake Him For Madonna?

A screenshot of US President Donald Trump’s tweet about Diego Maradona’s death has set the Internet ablaze.

It showed him mistaking the Argentinian footballer for Madonna, the American singer-songwriter.

Very sad to hear about the death of Maradona. A great person. Her music was wonderful. I remember listening to her albums in the early 1980’s. Rest In Peace!

 

Did Donald Trump Mistaken Maradona For Madonna? Possible, But Not Likely

While the tweet sounds very much like something Donald Trump would write, there is no evidence it was actually posted by the outgoing US President.

Here is what we know so far…

Fact #1 : He Has Been Focused On The Elections And Michael Flynn

From the time Diego Maradona’s death was announced, it appears that Donald Trump was focused on posting fake news about the US Presidential elections, and pardoning Michael Flynn.

Fact #2 : The Tweet Appears To Be Edited

The Donald Trump tweet about Maradona appears to be edited. If you compare that viral tweet with the other two samples above, you will note that :

  • his Twitter handle appears to be truncated, instead of under his name
  • the tweet lacks a time and date stamp
  • it lacks the Twitter for iPhone label
  • it seems to have A LOT more retweets, comments and likes than older and more controversial tweets

All of which point to an edited tweet…

With about half a million retweets and comments, you would have expected more screenshots. Yet, that is the only screenshot being shared on the Internet…

Fact #3 : No Media Confirmed The Tweet

Donald Trump has many followers, many of them members of the media who follow him to cover his many ridiculous statements.

Yet no one has actually seen and confirmed that Donald Trump actually posted the tweet. We certainly did not see it.

Fact #4 : Scott Morrison Was Also Victim Of Similar Hoax

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was also a victim of a similar hoax, with a fake tweet on Madonna’s death going viral.

Fact #5 : Many People Are Mistaking Maradona For Madonna

That said, it is definitely not inconceivable for Donald Turmp to mistaken Maradona for Madonna.

After all, many people are posting messages of condolences about Madonna’s premature death…

Yes, many people are mistaking Diego Maradona for Madonna.

So let us be very clear. The Argentinian footballer, Diego Maradona (left) is the one who died. Not the American singer-songwriter, Madonna (right).

Kaspersky Tips On Beating Hackers During Euro 2016

June 13, 2016 – On Friday, 10 June, thousands of companies across Europe and the rest of the world are likely to discover they have more remote workers than they did the day before, as the Euro 2016 football tournament gets underway. Fans trying to keep on top of work using mobile devices while surrounded by crowds of strangers, insecure public Wi-Fi networks and the distraction of a match will be immensely vulnerable to cyberthreats. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps that they and their employers can take to stay safe.

The Euro 2016 football tournament, hosted by France, brings together 24 teams for 51 matches. Millions of fans will be watching the games in stadiums, bars and at public screenings. Employers have been urged to let staff work more flexibly or from home so they can watch key national games, but some employees may take matters into their own hands, working from mobile devices while watching a game with fellow supporters. The IT security risks of such behaviour are immense. Neither employers nor employees may be fully aware of or prepared for just how vulnerable they are about to become.

To help everyone keep important business data safe, regardless of where they are, Kaspersky Lab has drawn up a short essential guide:

 

10 Things Remote-Working Fans Can Learn From The Players On The Pitch

1. Take responsibility for your own performance

A recent Kaspersky Lab study into ransomware found that less than 4% of adults in the US[i] would mind if work documents on their device were lost through cybercrime, while 77% would panic if they lost financial info. Indifference doesn’t lead to secure behaviour. If you are planning to work on the move, you need to feel responsible for the safety of the business information you handle.

2. Everyone is watching you

Logging into a device where anyone can look over your shoulder and make a note of your passwordor the work you’re doing – so-called ‘visual hacking’ – makes it easy for others to break into your device or steal information. Keep your data to yourself.

3. Keep your eye on the ball

Phishing and ransomware emails look increasingly convincing and can even appear to come from a colleague. If the message is unexpected, contact the sender directly, and never click on an attachment or a link in an email from someone you don’t know.

4. Don’t reveal your game plan

Don’t transmit anything unless you know it’s encrypted. With WhatsApp and Apple’s iMessage service now encrypting communications end-to-end as standard, email is rapidly becoming the most vulnerable form of business communications[ii]. Use the most secure channel you have access to.

5. Beware Man-in-the-Middle attacks

Using a free, public Wi-Fi network to stay in touch with work is extremely high-risk. An attacker can easily insert themselves into the network and spy on or intercept all your communications. They can do the same between an email and your business server[iii]. End-to-end encryption prevents this – so if you don’t have it, don’t email till you’re somewhere secure or use a VPN (virtual private network).

[adrotate banner=”5″]

6. Prepare for the worst

Employers unprepared for the sudden increase in remote working may not have the most appropriate security installed on work devices, let alone employees’ personal devices. If it’s too late to get this installed, then at the very least don’t leave home without the most up-to-date version of device software installed. Mobile devices are not immune to cyberattack: in 2015, Kaspersky Lab prevented nearly three million attempts to infect mobile devices[iv] with a Trojan.

7. The referee can make mistakes

Websites, network service providers, operating systems etc. do their best to provide protection or alerts: such as the new malware and phishing website warnings introduced by Bing[v]. However, the baddies are increasingly cunning and if there’s a point of weakness, they’ll find it. Confine your remote work to things that are not business critical or sensitive.

8. But don’t blame the referee for all mistakes

Sometimes things go wrong; devices get broken, lost or stolen, or affected by malware or ransomware. The best thing to do is to come clean and let your IT department know immediately so they can take appropriate steps, such as blocking or remote-wiping the device, or isolating the malware before the infection takes hold.

9. Don’t make victory easy for the other side

Cybercriminals generally prefer the path of least resistance. Solid security, security updates, a hard-to-crack password, the use of the latest software, a business VPN and encrypted communications all make it harder for an outsider to gain access to your device and business information.

10. But don’t expect to win without trying

Kaspersky Lab has found that only around half (53%) of consumers make use of the security features that come with their device[vi]. To stay ahead of the hackers, you need to get to grips with these security essentials. It’s about focus and commitment, supported by the right equipment. Just like football.

“Euro 2016 should be a celebration of football for fans the world over to enjoy. Sadly, occasions where people are more relaxed about device and data security can quickly become a happy hunting ground for hackers. Cybercriminals won’t hesitate to pounce on an under-protected football supporter trying to work remotely. A few basic precautions before, during and after the match will help employers and their workforce to stay safe – leaving them free to enjoy the glorious spectacle of sport,” said David Emm, Principal Security Researcher, Kaspersky Lab.

SAP Gives Deutscher Fussball-Bund Tactical Edge In Euro 2016

Technology and sports, while not altogether a new thing has so far remained a relatively small trend. However, during the World Cup 2014, SAP and the German team made a big bang and took football to the next level.

The SAP Match Insights solution for football that ran on the HANA platform facilitated the analysis of training, preparation and tournaments. It also gave coaches the unprecedented ability to process vast amounts of data to find and assess key situations in each match to improve player and team performance.

Now come 2016, SAP and DFB are looking to take it to the next level at the European Championship with new technology from SAP. For the upcoming European Championship, SAP has helped DFB create a game plan which includes the development of two new prototype technologies exclusively for DFB and powered by the SAP HANA Cloud Platform.

“Digitalization affects our entire economy and society, and is also entering the world of sports. SAP and DFB teamed up to spearhead this digital transformation and to take football to the next level,” said Bernd Leukert, Member of the Executive Board, SAP. “With SAP Challenger Insights and the penalty insights function for SAP Sports One, we are putting the power of real-time data and information directly into the hands of coaches and players.”

[adrotate banner=”5″]

 

HANA Cloud to provide unique tactical insight

The first, SAP Challenger Insights, helps the team prepare for each of their European Championship matches by providing data driven insights surrounding an opponent’s offensive and defensive tendencies, formations, and more. Accessed through the SAP HANA Cloud Platform, coaches can review the opposing team’s tactical characteristics and create an assumed match plan. The data is available through iPads that DFB players have in their lockers prior to a match or during halftime and delivers the assumed game plan of the opposing team so the team can familiarize themselves with opponent tendencies and reference past video replays.

Secondly, the Penalty Insights Function in SAP Sports One, a new functionality, powered by the SAP HANA Cloud Platform, provides goalkeepers and goalkeeping coaches with insights into the tactical behavior related to penalty kicks of all teams and players competing in the tournament. The team can search the top five or more players most likely to take penalty kicks, the areas of the goal they usually aim at, specific shot characteristics such as the player’s run, and also watch corresponding video clips in real time.

“Together with SAP, we have created a match plan that puts the power of real-time data and information into our hands and helps us gain a competitive edge,” said Oliver Bierhoff, Manager of the German National Football team and SAP ambassador.

Additionally, building off the success of the Football World Championships in 2014, SAP made extensive enhancements to previously released technologies that played a significant role in the German National Team’s success resulting in their 4th Championship.
Given the stunning success of their prior co-operative efforts, there is no doubt that many will be eager to see how much farther technology can raise the bar in this sport that has captured the hearts of millions of fans worldwide.
