Did Alabama Nurse, Tiffany Dover, Die From Pfizer Vaccine?

Did Alabama Nurse, Tiffany Dover, Die From Pfizer Vaccine?

Antivaxxers are claiming that an Alabama nurse, Tiffany Dover, died on live TV after taking the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine!

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

Updated @ 2020-12-25 : Added more fact checks, because antivaxxers continue to post fake claims about Tiffany. It’s Christmas, for crying out loud!

Did Alabama Nurse, Tiffany Dover, Die From Pfizer Vaccine?

There are several versions of this story, but they basically boil down to two main storylines :

a) an unnamed Alabama nurse died on live TV after taking the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine!

COVID 19 -TEST A nurse in Alabama dies directly on the air after taking the Pfizer vaccine for Corona This is clear evidence of the danger of the vaccine, including the toxins and animal genes .. LOOK AT VEDIO CLIP!

b) a Tennessee nurse, Tiffany Dover, died after fainting on live TV (after taking the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine)

OMFG! FAINTING NURSE DIED
Tiffany Dover IS DEAD

I saw that fainting nurse died, so I checked it out!
This death record has to be her! Same town, age, and most importantly, the family listed all show up as her friends on fb!

So the nurse who took the COVID-19 vaccination on live television is now dead days after being vaccinated..

 

No, Tiffany Dover, Did NOT Die From Pfizer Vaccine!

The short and sweet summary is this – no nurse died after taking the Pfizer vaccine, whether on live TV or otherwise.

For the skeptics who are fond of asking, “How do you know? Were you there?”, here are the facts…

Fact #1 : No Nurse Died On Live TV In Alabama

Despite claims that an unnamed nurse died in Alabama after being injected with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, that is not true.

The claim was shared with the video of Tiffany Dover, a nurse in Tennessee, fainting on live TV after receiving her Pfizer vaccination.

It is likely that antivaxxers intentionally switched the location from Tennessee to Alabama, to mislead those who already knew about Tiffany Dover.

Fact #2 : Tiffany Dover Is Alive And Well!

According to the NewsChannel 9 ABC crew who recorded the whole event on 17 December 2020, Tiffany Dover quickly recovered, and within minutes, was able to get up and speak with them again.

While antivaxxers are claiming that she subsequently died, those are complete lies. She did NOT die.

In fact, her hospital – CHI Memorial – posted this tweet, confirming that she is well, asking that people give her and her family privacy.

Fact #3 : Tiffany Dover Alive And Well On Video, 4 Days Later!

On 21 December 2020, CHI Memorial followed up with a short video showing that she is alive and well, surrounded by her colleagues.

To prove that it was not filmed before her vaccination and alleged “death”, they held up banners that said, “Nursing Leadership Vaccinated Together, #CHIMemorialStrong” and the date “12-21-20“.

Fact #3 : People Found The Wrong Death Record

Conspiracy theorists and antivaxxers are parading online search results showing her death record.

In fact, Kitty Lynn in this example searched for Tiffany Dover in the wrong state – Alabama. Is it any wonder she got the wrong death record?

Note : We intentionally added the HOAX overlay, to prevent it from being misleadingly shared

And this intrepid online investigator discovered that he/she was also listed on searchquarry.com.

Funnily enough, herdsheeple thought that SearchQuarry lists only dead people. It’s actually a search engine for public records in the United States.

With fantastic investigators like herdsheeple and Kitty Lynn, who needs the FBI?

Fact #4 : Tiffany Dover Is Not A Unique Name

As unique as Tiffany Dover surely is as a person, her name isn’t unique.

In the entire US, there are currently 47 Tiffany Dovers, with nine of them in Tennessee. And no, they are NOT CLONES, as some people are alleging.

And they do not include Tiffany Dovers who have actually passed away years or even decades ago.

Fact #5 : No Animal Genes In mRNA Vaccines

Some of these messages include the claim that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine contains animal genes, that’s completely false.

There are no genes of any sort in mRNA vaccines, whether they are from Pfizer or Moderna.

The mRNA in these COVID-19 vaccines are merely RNA instructions – coding for the SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins. That’s it.

Learn How To Share Netflix Titles On Instagram Stories!

DYKT you can share Netflix titles on Instagram Stories on both iPhone and Android smartphones? Here is how to do it on both platforms!

 

Sharing Netflix Titles On Instagram Stories

Netflix first announced the capability to share Netflix titles on Instagram Stories on 22 January 2019, but it was limited to their iPhone app.

That changed on 16 May 2019, when they finally released the same capability on their Android app.

Here is how you can share Netflix titles on Instagram Stories using these platforms :

Apple iPhone

The current Netflix iPhone app has an Instagram Stories share link. With this new feature, you can :

  1. Select a Netflix title you want to share
  2. Add the Netflix title’s custom art
  3. Share it to Instagram Stories, or to your friends as a direct message

The Instagram story remains visible for 24 hours, and provides a “Watch On Netflix” link back to the title page within the Netflix app.

“We’re always on the lookout for ways to make it easier for members to share the Netflix titles they’re obsessing about and help them discover something new to watch. We hope our members enjoy this new feature!” said Leigh Wong Netflix’s Head of Communications for Southeast Asia.

Android Smartphones

The latest Netflix Android app will have a new Instagram Stories share link.

  1. Select a Netflix title you want to share
  2. You can personalise the default art further to add captions, stickers, and more
  3. Share it to Instagram Stories, or to your friends as a direct message

“Sharing to Instagram Stories is now on all Android phones. You can share the shows and films you’re in love with directly from the Netflix app to your followers. Pop in a quiz for your friends to guess your favourite character from a show. Or a GIF to reflect your mood after a movie. It’s all part of what we’re doing to make it fun and easy to share what you’re watching, and help your friends find something new to watch.” said Netflix

 

Snapchat Sharing Coming Soon!

Netflix will also be adding Snapchat sharing to both iPhone and Android apps later this year.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch… Choose Wisely!

Bandersnatch is a new interactive movie from the Black Mirror science fiction anthology. Released on Netflix, it allows you to determine the story of the movie!

Intriguing, isn’t it? Just like the choose your own adventure game books of yesteryears!

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch… Choose Wisely!

This Netflix interactive film is unlike anything you have ever seen before. Built around the same premise of choose your own adventure game books, it lets you determine how the story develops!

In this 80s-set, sometimes morally-compromising adventure, you alone are in charge of what happens next in Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. The journeys you go on are a direct result of your decisions.

There are choices to be made, challenges to overcome, dangers to encounter and, as always in life (and Black Mirror), consequences to be had.

Choosing wisely could lead to triumph while taking the wrong path could end in disaster — but who’s to say what’s “right” and “wrong,” anyway?

And fret not because once one experience comes to a close, you can — and should! — go back and make a new choice, alter the path of your story and maybe even change its outcome.

The iflix HD Streaming Q&A With Ash Crick

The videos that iflix streams to your mobile devices may seem sharp but they were not HD in quality. At least, not till iflix started streaming in HD in February 2017. In addition to the increased resolution, they also doubled the audio fidelity of the streaming video. Check out the full details on iflix HD streaming below!

 

iflix Introduces iflix HD!

iflix Global Director of Labs, Data Intelligence and Content Technology, Ash Crick, gave a quick overview of the iflix HD upgrades at the launch event.

Here are the key takeaway points :

  • iflix started streaming some of their movies and TV shows in HD quality beginning February 2017.
  • In addition to increasing the resolution, they also doubled the quality of the audio.

 

Q&A With Ash Crick On iflix & iflix HD

We then had the opportunity to ask Ash some questions about iflix and iflix HD.

Here are the key takeaway points :

[adrotate banner=”4″]

  • The iflix HD content is currently being offered in the HD resolution of 720p, not the full HD resolution of 1080p.
  • Beginning on 24 January 2017 March, all new content added to iflix will be in HD quality, with the improved audio quality.
  • Over the next month or two, iflix will start offering their older content in HD quality as well.
  • The audio is not being offered in the HD Audio standard, but rather improved in its perceived quality.
  • The new HD content is not currently available for the iflix Download & Watch Offline (DWO) feature.
  • When iflix makes the DWO files available in HD, their download size will be about twice that of the regular SD files.
  • The bandwidth used to stream the new iflix HD content will be 1.5X to 2.5X more than streaming the older SD content.
  • The Download & Watch Offline (DWO) files for iflix HD content should be available in “the next 60 days“.
  • Ash is confident that iflix will allow users to stream their Download & Watch Offline (DWO) files to a Chromecast device in 2017.
  • iflix HD is currently available only in Malaysia, but iflix will be rolling it out to the other countries over the next 30-60 days.
