The groundhog is like most other prophets; it delivers its prediction and then disappears.

I woke up this morning the second day after the US election, I wondered why each state didn’t show a win – but a prediction of a win. Plus, no final winner!
Well, Einstein had two new predictions from general relativity. One was that light would bend.
That was tested in 1919, and basically, he was proven right. The second prediction was gravitational waves, which took us 100 years to prove. The theory itself, which is thought by most to be rather obscure, you use every day, probably.
Occurrences in this domain are beyond the reach of exact prediction because of the variety of factors in operation, not because of any lack of order in nature. Albert Einstein
I went searching for myself after a conversation with Dan. Per the internet, predictions are made every day for both serious and unimportant things. They are often discussed in the context of the weather, the stock market, sports, and politics—any topic in which people are interested in what could happen in the future.
The first records of prediction come from the mid-1500s. It comes from a Latin term that means “foretelling.” Prediction is the noun form of the verb predict, which is formed from the prefix pre-, meaning “before,” and the root dic-, meaning “to say.”
So, to make a prediction is to say that something is going to happen before it happens (usually so that when it happens, you can say Called it!). People have been making predictions throughout much of human history. The Ancient Greeks believed that oracles could see the future, and relied on their predictions for certain things. But that kind of prediction is more often called a prophecy.
Today, the word prediction usually doesn’t imply mystical stuff like looking into a crystal ball.
IT ONLY HAPPENS ONCE 💕
Of course, many predictions aren’t based on much (like your prediction that your team is going to win the championship). But some are. People often rely on data and scientific modeling to make predictions about important things like tomorrow’s weather, the path of a hurricane, the stock market, and who will win in a political election (in all of these examples, making such predictions can be called forecasting). But the world is complicated, and no amount of data can ensure that a prediction will be 100 percent accurate.
So, Dan and my favorite saying when it comes to our favorite sports teams and predictions; “its not over under the fat lady sings”. This means its not over until its over; the final score.
This is quite like when the doctor gives you a % of chance that you will come through a surgery or an illness. Medicine may be a science, but even scientists will gaze into a crystal ball once in a while. With an inside track on medical developments and the general optimism that comes with the desire to heal, it makes sense that medical scientists might see a brighter future in terms of human health.
For example; the cure for the common cold was predicted to be just a memory in 1955. Arkansas physician Dr. Lowry McDaniel told the American Medical Association convention that by the year 2000 the common cold “will be only a memory,” reported the International News Service.
But bringing that prediction to fruition is easier said than done. With over 100 different viruses that could cause a cold, finding a medicine that fights all of them is nearly impossible.
Continuing on INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017 – INTERNATIONAL TREATMENTS. I’m blogging today on TRANSFER FACTOR.
To keep your body healthy, your immune system must preform three very important functions each time your body comes in contact with a pathogen.
First, it must recognize the pathogen as a threat to the body.
Second, it must then attack and eliminate the threat.
Third, it must remember that the pathogen so that your body can quickly identify and rid itself to it; the next time it is attacked.
The faster your body’s immune system can identify a harmful pathogen, the faster it can mount a protective/defensive response.
Transfer factor is the agent that allows the body to transfer this critical identification information from cell to cell; in other words, transfer factors serve as critical teachers of new cells. Thereby, ensuring a stronger immune system capable of withstanding our often-harsh environment.
Transfer factor is an all-natural substance that works by teaching the body’s immune system to identify infectious agents and malignant cells.
You ask, what are exactly transfer factors? They are very small molecules naturally found in healthy cells as a type of polypeptide. Through a special extraction process performed, doctors are able to collect powerful transfer factor molecules from the polypeptides of immune cells from a healthy person.
The transfer factor collected from the process is a purified extract containing transfer factor molecules.
Transfer factor educates, enhances and balances the immune system; literally transferring immunity information from one entity to another. Thus, as between a breast-feeding mother and her newborn infant.
Transfer factor exits to fine tune immune system function so that immune cells know when and how to act and when to rest.
Transfer factors are used for infectious conditions in people with weak immune systems. These infectious conditions include bacteria or viruses in the blood stream (septicemia), sinus infections, bronchitis, influenza, swine flu, the common cold, shingles, chickenpox, hepatitis B, fungal infections - such as coccidioidomycosis, yeast infections (candidiasis), parasitic infections – such as leishmaniasis, cryptosporidiosis and leprosy. Transfer factors are also used against infections caused by viruses such as cytomegalovirus and Epstein-Barr virus; by bacteria such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium fortuitum, Mycobacterium avium and by yeasting like fungi such as Cryptococcus and Pneumocystis carinii.
Transfer factors are also used for diabetes, autism, infertility, systemic lupus, erythematosus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease.
They are also used for skin conditions; including psoriasis, allergic dermatitis and others. Also, it is used for an eye condition called retinitis pigmentosa, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease, multiple sclerosis, bone cancer, lung cancer, melanoma, food and chemical allergies, myasthenia gravis and asthma.
Prediction just means you saw where the world might be going: ho-hum. Influence, though - ah. Influence, direct and acknowledged, means you actually steered the world, even if only a tiny bit. --Robin Sloan

Until tomorrow, nobody can predict the future. You just have to give your all and do your best to take care of your family, communicate and give it every last drop of strength. I think one of the most important things in life is caring for your family through good times and bad.
