"IT IS FOOLISH AND WRONG TO MOURN THE MEN WHO HAVE DIED. RATHER WE SHOULD THANK GOD THAT SUCH MEN LIVED.  George S. Patton Courage is being scared to death and doing the right thing anyway.  Chae Richardson    Just listen to Ronald Reagan's speech in the video and it is all I need to say on this day. Remember that this is a day to honor those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms, and I pray we don't let it slip out of our hands by giving America to the Communistic Left. I know Canadians have a separate day of "Remembrance" but they can also share in this day because they fought and died shoulder to shoulder with the Americans for the same principles. Guys, Please Kindly  ❤️   Recommend  

Public Health to Collect Troves of Online Data to Target the Vaccine Hesitant

 


The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has announced a contract with a social media intelligence collection firm based in the U.K. to obtain data on vaccine hesitant individuals in order to be able to deliver targeted messaging to break through their hesitancy, contract details indicate.


“In preparation for increased vaccination education, promotion, and outreach, The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is requiring the services of a consultant to analyze the vaccine related conversations on social media and PHAC social media initiative and campaign performance,” says the tender notice description posted online on Dec. 22.


The notice says the contract will be awarded to U.K.-based Pulsar Platform if no other supplier submits a bid meeting the requirements before the closing date. The estimated value of the contract is $339,000.


Pulsar describes itself as an “audience intelligence company” using artificial intelligence and “smart human minds” to comb through conversational and behavioural data on social media.


The notice says the consultant will need to analyze Twitter and other online sites and platforms spanning three years of historical data.


PHAC is seeking to obtain information on individuals who are participating in and influencing online conversations about vaccination.


It wants reports produced by the consultant to “provide PHAC an actionable understanding of the vaccine conversation landscape online and the conversation participants, while determining a conversation baseline,” according to the Statement of Work.


Once this data is obtained, PHAC will run a tailored messaging campaign, which it says will seek to target “communities of interest,” such as “indigenous peoples and millennial males,” states the Advance Contract Award Notice.


The study is to be rerun within a three to four month period to “monitor shifts in attitudes and confidence levels,” says the notice.
