Viral Intelligence

The CDC thinks that American hospitals are prepared to handle Ebola. RNs beg to differ. Nurses, the frontline care providers in U.S. hospitals, say they are untrained and unprepared to handle patients arriving in their hospital emergency departments infected with Ebola. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has repeatedly said that U.S. hospitals are prepared to handle such patients.

However, they grossly mishandled their first case. They got the diagnosis wrong and sent the patient home. “The Texas case is a perfect example,” said Micker Samios, a triage nurse in the emergency department at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, the largest hospital in the nation’s capital. “In addition to not being prepared, there was a flaw in diagnostics as well as communication,” Samios said. Partially because of the mistaken diagnosis the number of “contact traces” for the man diagnosed with Ebola in Dallas has risen to 100, officials say.

Kellogg spends $250,000 against GMO labeling in Oregon

Kellogg is a large contributor to a group against an initiative in Oregon to label genetically modified foods, according to the St. Louis Business Journal.

The publication reported Tuesday the Battle Creek-based company has contributed $250,000 to the "No on 92 Coalition." The organization includes business groups such as the Oregon Manufacturers Association but also has backing from Monsanto Co., which has spent $1.5 million to defeat Measure 92, according to the Oregon Secretary of State's Office.

Person with suspected Ebola infection discharged from US hospital

A patient who was taken to hospital on September 28 right after his return from Sierra Leone to the United States with suspected Ebola virus was discharged from hospital on Tuesday, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) said in a press release.

“Earlier today the patient who was flown back to the United States from Sierra Leone and admitted to the NIH Clinical Center on September 28 for observation, following a high-risk exposure to Ebola virus infection, was discharged to his home,” the release says.

Protests Disrupt Telescope Groundbreaking In Hawaii

During the project's groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday, which was webcast on Thirty Meter Telescope's official website, yelling could be heard in the background of the blessing.

Stephanie Nagata, director of the Office of Mauna Kea Management, told The Associated Press that several dozen protesters even blocked the roads to the telescope, prevented a caravan of vehicles from taking visitors, which included dignitaries from around the world, to the event. But the protest group denied they had blocked any traffic, pointing instead to the police.

"They laid down the road right there," said Kealoha Pisciotta, who was with the group Mauna Kea Anaina Hou. "That's what stopped the caravan." Pisciotta also said her group didn't intend to stop the blessing and later apologized for interrupting it. "We said aloha to each other and we hugged."

Spanish Nurse Says She Reported Her Ebola Symptoms Several Times

In Spain, Teresa Romero Ramos, the nurse who was admitted to a hospital in Madrid after caring for an infected priest who'd returned from West Africa, reportedly told health authorities three times that she had a fever before she was placed in quarantine.

There were also reports that she may have become infected by touching gloves to her face while she was removing a protective suit she wore while caring for an Ebola patient.

Meanwhile, despite an appeal from Romero's husband, protests in the streets of Madrid and an online campaign to save the couple's dog, El Mundo newspaper reports that Excalibur was put down at a veterinary hospital in the capital.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look, I love dogs. But I have to wonder about the sanity of the people who were protesting to keep the dog alive even though it potentially was a vector for contagion. Are these people not thinking this thing all the way through?

Ancient Mystery: 1,000 Year Old Australian Skull is Not Aboriginal

The jawbone of a 1,000 year old skull of a young child has been found after being washed ashore, and now the investigation begins to find out where it originated from. You’d expect that maybe it is the remains of an Aboriginal child, only it’s not.

Forensics scientists will find out whether or not this skull is either Polynesian, or Asian in origin… or from somewhere else. Evidence of ancient mariners in Asia and the Pacific Islands date back to before the time of Christ. The Polynesian culture of the Pacific Islands are regarded as the perhaps the region’s oldest seafaring culture, but they are not alone.

Double-reverse on Ebola military mission

In yet another Obama administration reversal adding to the confusion surrounding the mission of U.S. troops in West Africa, Defense Department officials said Gen. David M. Rodriguez misspoke when he told reporters Tuesday that U.S. troops would be in direct contact with Ebola patients.

Rodriguez, commander of U.S. African Command, said at a Pentagon news conference Tuesday that teams of U.S. soldiers will work alongside Liberian troops and will staff mobile medical labs that will test people for Ebola.

The Defense officials, however, now insist U.S. military lab technicians will only be testing specimen samples from suspected Ebola victims.

CDC Chief Frieden on Ebola: Sealing Borders 'Increases People's Distrust of Government'

On his blog on the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), director Dr. Tom Frieden wrote that sealing borders, restricting travel to and from countries with widespread cases of Ebola, and otherwise isolating communities infected with the deadly disease “increases people’s distrust of government, making them less likely to co-operate to help stop the spread of Ebola.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Frieden has been given is marching orders to keep the borders open, keep Americans buying airline tickets, keep them going to the malls for the Christmas shopping season, make sure they show up to vote, and especially not let them forget that what they are SUPPOSED to be afraid of are those eeeeeeeevil mooslims that need a good bombing.

Texas ground beef recalled due to possible metal pieces

Texas groceries had likely removed by Sunday morning all ground beef from store shelves that was subject to a recall due to possible contamination from tiny pieces of metal, an executive at the company which recalled the product said.

Sam Kane Beef Processors, based in Corpus Christi, Texas, recalled nearly 91,000 pounds of ground beef shipped between Sept. 9 and Sept. 18 to Texas retail outlets, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said in a news release on Saturday.

Consumers in four separate incidents reported finding pieces of metal about 3 mm in size in beef products, and one of them reported getting a chipped tooth, the USDA said. The USDA classified the health risk from the metals as low.

Ebola: Why don't we just ban flights from Africa?

The World Health Organization has said repeatedly it does not recommend travel bans on the countries affected by the Ebola outbreakl because that would leave the countries cut off from the rest of the world, “resulting in detrimental economic consequences, and hinder relief and response efforts, risking further international spread.” http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/statements/2014/ebola-2nd-ihr-meet...

The key problem in travel bans, says the WHO and others, is that ending flights in and out of affected countries hinders these countries’ ability to receive the new supplies they so desperately need. As well, there are already not enough health workers on the ground in the affected countries. What foreign worker would willingly fly into the epidemic to offer assistance knowing they might not be allowed to fly back out?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is about protecting the profits of the airline corporations as we head into the holiday travel season. The fact is that the United States maintains a military airlift capability that is the rival of any commercial airline and can go wherever they need to go. The US Government is still treating Ebola as a political and economic issue. They want people to keep buying airline tickets. They want people to flood into the shopping malls for the Christmas shopping season. They want to make sure everyone shows up to vote next month. And mostly they don't want people to start thinking that maybe it is time to stop waging wars against countries on the other side of the globe and spend the taxpayer's money to protect the US from a major epidemic.

CDC now endangering all Americans by pushing five irresponsible assumptions about Ebola transmission

There's no subtle way to say this, so I'll just state it outright: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has become a clear and present danger to the public health of all Americans. The agency's continued repeating of lies based on false assumptions is already contributing to a dangerous, casual attitude about Ebola transmission that could cause this outbreak to explode across the United States.

Britain's fracking trespass law flouts UK citizens’ democratic rights – Naomi Klein

Recent legislative changes, which enable fracking firms to drill beneath UK citizens’ land without their permission, flout Britons’ fundamental democratic rights, author and activist Naomi Klein warns.

Speaking at an event chaired by Guardian columnist Owen Jones on Monday evening, Klein emphasized that the British government’s recent overhaul of trespass laws – orchestrated to make it quicker and easier for fracking firms to drill beneath Britons’ land – was fuelling nationwide resistance.

Speaking to an audience in London, the Canadian writer and campaigner said an underlying factor driving the anti-fracking movement was the necessity to defend democracy.

Gov Emergency Manager: “Ebola Outbreak is Being Conducted On Purpose; Violates All Protocols”

To say that the handling of the Ebola crisis from the get-go is a disaster would be an understatement. For months, as the virus took hold in town-after-town, country-after-country in West Africa medical professionals and emergency services experts warned that unless drastic containment measures were implemented it would eventually make it’s way to Europe, the United States and the rest of the world.

It is now clear that all containment efforts, if we can call them that, have failed to prevent the spread of the virus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I go with Occam's razor on this one; meaning total incompetence. The handling of Ebola matches the US Government's ineptitude in handling Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, the Gulf Oil disaster, and Fukushima.

QUESTION: Will they be in contact with individuals or just specimens?
RODRIGUEZ: They come in contact with the individuals.

Of course this was followed by a stream of qualifiers that all protection possible will be taken (just like the nurses in Madrid?)

Why Won’t Obama Ban Air Travel From Countries Where Ebola Is Out Of Control?

Why does Barack Obama refuse to take even the most basic steps to protect Americans from Ebola? Even though it has already been demonstrated that Ebola can be brought over to the United States by a passenger on an airplane, Obama refuses to do anything that would even restrict air travel from nations where Ebola is spiraling out of control. Back in September, Obama said that it was "unlikely" that any individual with Ebola could get through the "extensive screening" at our airports and pose a threat to the general population. But he was wrong. That has already happened. And yet the official White House position is that there is "no consideration of a travel ban" at this point. What possible explanation is there for such gross negligence?

Webmaster's Commentary:

“Genetic Strains of Ebola that have Never been Seen Before”. Media Lies and US Government Coverup

The current outbreak (which actually began on or before December, 2013) presents genetic strains of Ebola that have never been seen before. The Guinea variant of Ebola was itself novel enough to form its own clade. Now, via Recombinomics and with respect to Sierra Leone, we have:

“The June Sierra Leone sequences have evidence of some drift from the March sequences from Guinea. A prior Zaire sub-clade, which was found in apes and a chimpanzee and was associated with an outbreak in Gabon in 2002 had strong evidence of recombination, which raises concerns of more evolution in the current sub-clade, which has produced a record number of reported Ebola cases and deaths.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is only a matter of when, and not if, we have an ebola outbreak in the US, and that is something those tasked with the responsibility of attempting to keep Americans safe from disease outbreaks do not seem to be taking very seriously right now, which concerns me.

Walmart Cuts Health Care Coverage For Most Part-Timers In Wake Of Obamacare

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. plans to eliminate health insurance coverage for some of its part-time U.S. employees in a move aimed at controlling rising health care costs of the nation's largest private employer.

Wal-Mart told The Associated Press that starting Jan. 1, it will no longer offer health insurance to employees who work less than an average of 30 hours a week. The move affects 30,000 employees, or about 5 percent of Wal-Mart's total part-time workforce, but comes after the company already had scaled back the number of part-time workers who were eligible for health insurance coverage since 2011.

"We had to make some tough decisions," Sally Welborn, Wal-Mart's senior vice president of benefits, told The Associated Press.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what do you want to bet that starting 1 January 2015, NO ONE WILL BE WORKING OVER 30 HOURS AT WAL-MART?!?

Sometimes, workers may have pre-existing conditions which may make it impossible to find adequate health insurance, particularly with what Wal-Mart pays them.

Corporations, in their lust for profitability over everything else, tend to have the morals of a trout; this decision makes that painfully clear on the part of to Board of Directors at Wal-Mart.

Countries warn of risk of war as new Nile treaty delays

Countries that share the Nile waters on Monday warned that the region could go to war unless a new treaty on the use of the Nile waters is drawn up.

Nile Basin countries have increased pressure on Egypt to get back to the negotiating table for discussions on how the waters of the world’s longest river can be used.

On Monday, participants gathered at Nairobi’s InterContinental Hotel for the Fourth Nile Basin Development Forum warned the region might face conflicts over water in future if a new agreement is not reached.

“We are hoping that cooperation around the Nile is going to increase security and stability. The key words are equitable and responsible use of the Nile resources.

“That is the only way we can do this peacefully. Otherwise if we don’t do it, we are going to be at war because of water,” Prof Judi Wakhungu, the Environment, Water and Natural Resources Cabinet Secretary said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let us hope that these negotiations go responsibly and smoothly.

IF not, the world may well have another war zone on its hands, and THAT...could get very messy indeed.

Here's how you can (and can't) get Ebola

You usually can't get Ebola through coughing or sneezing. The virus isn't airborne, thankfully, and experts expect that it will never become airborne. But, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, "If a symptomatic patient with Ebola coughs or sneezes on someone, and saliva or mucus come into contact with that person's eyes, nose or mouth, these fluids may transmit the disease."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Read that paragraph carefully. Note the contradiction between the first sentence and the last.

And they wonder why the American people are not willing to trust anything the government and media are saying about Ebola.

Note that elsewhere this article mentions you can catch Ebola from other mammals such as humans, bats, monkeys and apes, but neglects to mention far more common dogs, which are known carriers of the illness, and worse, show no symptoms.

POLTICAL CORRECTNESS ON DISPLAY - Neighbors Of Ebola Patient Feel ‘Discriminated Against’

Residents in the Vickery Meadow neighborhood of Dallas are living near the epicenter of the Ebola scare in North Texas. Now, they say they’re facing a different challenge — discrimination.

Thomas Duncan stayed at an apartment in the community before being diagnosed with Ebola and admitted into Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital for treatment.

Dallas City Council member Jennifer Staubach Gates says that she met with over 30 community leaders on Monday, trying to assess the needs of the residents. Most are concerned about the possible stigma of living near the apartment building.

“Unfortunately, they are feeling discriminated against,” said Gates. “We still have some that have been turned away from jobs. Some that have been turned away at retail locations. We’re getting them in touch with legal aid and any resources necessary.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More indications that Ebola is being treated as a political issue, rather than as a health crisis. This is the height of the absurdity called "political correctness", that you may not avoid people who may be infected with lethal illnesses!

French nurse cured of Ebola after contracting virus in Liberia: health officials

The unidentified Doctors Without Borders nurse was airlifted from Liberia to France for treatment last month, becoming the first French national to develop the deadly disease.

Oct 07 08:06

Some Ebola experts worry virus may spread more easily than assumed

Other public health officials have voiced similar assurances, saying Ebola is spread only through physical contact with a symptomatic individual or their bodily fluids. "Ebola is not transmitted by the air. It is not an airborne infection," said Dr. Edward Goodman of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, where the Liberian patient remains in critical condition.

Yet some scientists who have long studied Ebola say such assurances are premature — and they are concerned about what is not known about the strain now on the loose. It is an Ebola outbreak like none seen before, jumping from the bush to urban areas, giving the virus more opportunities to evolve as it passes through multiple human hosts.

Mysterious Outbreak of hemorrhagic fever Syndrome in Venezuela kills Ten

An outbreak of a mysterious hemorrhagic fever syndrome in the Venezuelan state of Aragua and the country’s capital Caracas has left ten people dead in the last three weeks. Reports indicate that nine people have so far succumbed to the disease in the northern state and a tenth person has died in the capital.

It is unclear whether the cause of the syndrome is viral or bacterial – a distinction with implications for treatment – although autopsies have indicated that those who died were suffering from other complications, such as Chikungunya.

Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever (VHF) is endemic in the two states of Portuguesa and Barinas, but transmission from person-to-person is uncommon.

While samples have been sent to the Venezuelan National Institute of Health, the results have not yet been released publically and there is no suggestion from health officials that VHF is behind this particular outbreak.

Texas Wants 2nd Possible Ebola Patient Put in Protective Custody

Texas wants a second patient "reasonably suspected of being infected" with Ebola put into protective custody in Dallas.

Dr. David L. Lakey, commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services, filed a motion for a temporary order of protective custody Monday in Dallas County Court.

The unidentified patient, sued as "M.W.L.," is "reasonably suspected of being infected with a communicable disease (Ebola) that presents an immediate threat to public health," the 4-page motion states.

"Further, movant has determined that proposed patient is a threat to himself or others if not immediately restrained. Further, sources charged with monitoring the proposed patient M.W.L. have observed the proposed patient failing or refusing to follow the written order of the Texas Department of State Health Services by leaving the premises of a medical facility contrary to medical directives, without permission and surreptitiously."

What Whistleblowers Tell Us About Vaccine Safety and Effectiveness

In 2010, two Merck virologists filed a federal lawsuit under the False Claims Act against their former employer, alleging the vaccine maker lied about the effectiveness of their mumps vaccine (which is part of the trivalent measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine).

The whistleblowers, Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski, claimed they witnessed "firsthand the improper testing and data falsification in which Merck engaged to artificially inflate the vaccine's efficacy findings."

They charged that Merck used improper testing techniques; manipulated testing methodology; abandoned undesirable test results; falsified test data; and failed to adequately investigate and report the diminished efficacy of its mumps vaccine.

Ebola Infects Spanish Nurse, a First in West

A nurse in Spain has become the first health worker to be infected with the Ebola virus outside of West Africa, raising serious concerns about how prepared Western nations are to safely treat people with the deadly illness.

The nurse contracted the illness while treating a Spanish missionary who was infected in Sierra Leone and flown to Madrid’s Carlos III hospital, where he died on Sept. 25, Spain’s Health Ministry said. The priest, Manuel García Viejo, died three days after being flown back to Spain, and the nurse entered his room only twice, including once after his death, according to Antonio Alemany, a health official from the regional government of Madrid.

EXCLUSIVE: CPS Complaint Filed Against Texas Judge Over Daughter and Potential Ebola Exposure

Breitbart Texas has learned a complaint was filed with Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, also known as CPS. The complaint was filed on Sunday morning by a concerned Dallas citizen who had read about Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins going into the apartment where Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, lived while he was sick. Jenkins was in the apartment with four people who had been directly exposed by Duncan to the Ebola virus. Jenkins said, in a subsequent press conference that he was going home to his wife and nine-year-old daughter after he discussed being in the apartment again and driving the exposed family to their new home -- a forty-five minute drive. At no point did Jenkins appear to wear any protective clothing.

Ebola Test Gives False Negatives

On July 15, Omeonga’s boss walked into his office at St. Joseph Catholic Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia full of worry. The hospital director told Omeonga he had shaken hands with a man who was later diagnosed with Ebola, and now he was feeling ill—the director had been vomiting, had a headache, and was running a high fever. But two days later, when the diagnostic test came back negative, that worry was banished, and Omeonga and his colleagues began caring for the director as they would a typhoid or malaria patient. “We wore gloves, but we were not very strict at all.”

BLOCKBUSTER: NOT ONLY DOES US GOVERNMENT RESEARCH SHOW THAT THERE IS A CURE FOR EBOLA*, BUT THIS INFORMATION IS BEING SUPPRESSED BY THE US GOVERNMENT

The international community says, with a single voice, that there is no cure for Ebola and no prevention, either. They tell us that because the Ebola Virus strain devastating West Africa is a novel one, no antibiotic can touch it and that the organism has an astonishing kill rate of 90%.

Leaving aside the World Health Agency and all associated laboratories and research institutions, I find it impossible to believe that the US Government’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DFRA, Defense Department) and United States Army Medical Research Institue of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) two agencies with large budgets publishing nearly 100 scientific papers on Ebola and its treatment since 2000, could not come up with a cure, prevention or treatment for it.

Oh! Wait! They DID come up with a cure, prevention and treatment for it: 10 PPM Nano Silver. That’s right! OOPS! US Government, WHO and their associated minions are lying! Again!

Governments seize colloidal silver being used to treat Ebola patients, says advocate

Efforts to bring natural Ebola treatments to suffering West Africans have been squelched by the World Health Organization (WHO), which recently blocked multiple shipments of nanosilver solution measuring at 10 parts per million (ppm) from entering the region, leaving thousands to suffer needlessly.

WHO officials also reportedly called off a trial at an Ebola isolation ward where local health authorities were set to begin administering the silver, which the U.S. government previously demonstrated is highly effective against Ebola. WHO ordered the trial not to proceed despite the fact that it had earlier voiced support for experimental treatments.

Both WHO and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have given their blessing to experimental therapies for Ebola, citing a lack of proven treatment options. But when it comes to using therapeutic silver, all bets are off, it seems.

The blessing is apparently only for experimental therapies being produced by the large corporate pharmaceutical companies. Letting people cure themselves is damaging to the bottom line!

Report: Second Ebola Case Hits Madrid Hospital

Spanish news outlet Eldiaro is reporting that a possible second Ebola case has been discovered in the same Madrid hospital that earlier today confirmed a Spanish nurse had contracted the virus.

According to a translated version of the article, a second nurse who specializes in infectious diseases has been struck down by the virus, although the Director General of Primary Care in Madrid said that he had no news about a second case.

The report cites “health sources” who suggest that the nurse was part of the same team that treated Spanish priest Manuel Garcia Viejo, who died on September 25 after arriving in Spain having caught the disease in Sierra Leone.

The Ebola test: let the test's inventor speak

Amidst the hysteria about Ebola, one stubborn fact sits like a rock: everything depends upon being able to accurately diagnose Ebola in each patient.

And then it follows: you must examine the test that is being used to diagnose Ebola. Is it accurate? Does it have flaws? Is it being applied correctly?

Because, if there is a serious problem with the test, the whole house of cards collapses. The entire narrative about Ebola is fatally flawed.

Monsanto's Roundup Linked to Cancer - Again

Roundup seemed, at first, to be the perfect herbicide. It blocks the ESPS synthase enzyme, which prevents the synthesis of amino acids that plants need for growth. Since animals don't have this enzyme, it was initially hypothesized that they would be safe from Roundup's effects.

Unfortunately, Roundup has now been shown to affect much more than the EPSP synthase enzyme. The herbicide has been proven to cause birth defects in vertebrates, including in humans, and it may also be the cause of a fatal kidney disease epidemic.

An increasing number of studies are now linking the herbicide to cancer.

White House: Ebola Travel Ban Not Being Considered

Speaking to reporters from the White House Monday, Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters a travel ban to the United States from Ebola stricken countries isn't something being considered by the Obama administration as calls to implement restrictions grow louder.

"As it relates to the prospect of a travel ban, this is something they we're not, that's not being considered right now," Earnest said. "The concern that we have is that we are relying on the commercial transportation system to move supplies and personnel into the region to try to meet the needs of the individuals who are effected by Ebola and to stop this outbreak at the source. That is what will be critical to our broader success here so we don't want to obstruct one of the core components of our strategy here.

Pinkeye Was Only Symptom in Child Killed by Enterovirus

A New Jersey preschooler killed last month by a respiratory virus that is spreading across the U.S. showed symptoms only of pinkeye before he died in his sleep, health officials said.

Four-year-old Eli Waller, of Hamilton Township, was kept home from school by his mother on Wednesday, Sept. 23, because he was developing a little bit of pinkeye, said Jeff Plunkett, the health officer for the township. He was otherwise fine and had been in school on Sept. 21 and 22.

Teenager with 'Ebola-like' symptoms quarantined in Miami after falling sick while on holiday from West Africa

A teenager from West Africa who became sick while visiting Florida on holiday caused Jackson Memorial Hospital to go on high alert on Sunday amid fears that he may have the deadly Ebola virus.

Officials said the patient took a taxi to Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach after he became sick with flu-like symptoms. Miami Beach Fire Rescue then transferred him to Jackson for further tests.

A test performed by the Department of Health came back negative on Monday morning, but Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine said the results were being sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a final test.

Missouri Doctor: ‘Just A Matter Of Time Before [Ebola] Is Carried To Every Corner Of The World’

“For months, doctors in my community — since we had a meeting six weeks ago — have been convinced that the United States will be importing clusters regularly. Right now, on the continent of West Africa, there are a million people in isolation, in quarantine, because of Ebola, and ten thousand passengers leave West Africa every single day. It’s just a matter of time before this disease is carried to every corner of the world.”

He insists the CDC is underplaying the threat posed by the disease and is intentionally misleading the public.

Ebola Patient in Dallas 'Fighting for His Life,' CDC Director Says

The Ebola patient in a hospital is "fighting for his life," but he remains the only confirmed victim of the disease in the United States, and public health officials remain confident about their ability to contain the disease, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Sunday.

While expressing such confidence about the American effort, the director, Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, said on the CNN program "State of the Union" that in Africa, "the virus is spreading so fast that it's hard to keep up."

FLASHBACK 2000 - NY TIMES - Some May Carry Ebola Virus Without Having the Symptoms

The Ebola virus, which has caused deaths from high fever and bleeding in African outbreaks, can also infect without producing illness, according to a new finding by African and European scientists.

The possibility of asymptomatic infection was only suggested in earlier studies, they said in last week's issue of The Lancet, a medical journal published in London. Now they said they had documented such infections for the first time. They found that the Ebola virus could persist in the blood of asymptomatic infected individuals for two weeks after they were first exposed to an infected individual. How much longer the virus can persist is unknown.

All outbreaks of Ebola have been controlled by standard infection control measures such as effective body disposal, destroying or sterilizing contaminated equipment and appropriate use of gloves. But if people can be carriers without showing symptoms, it means control might be more difficult.

American scientist in 2006 called for using Ebola to exterminate 90% of the Earth’s population

What is noteworthy is a statement by an award-winning Texas scientist who in 2006 advocated for the extermination of 90% of the Earth’s population using an airborne Ebola virus. University of Texas professor Dr. Eric R. Pianka called Ebola, “His preferred method of exterminating over five billion human beings was via airborne Ebola (Ebola Reston), because it is both highly lethal and kills its victims in days rather than years.”

"He exhibited clear indicators that he needed to be taken to the psych ward," Jenkins told News 8.

Parkland spokesman Mike Malaise said Lively was later removed by health officials and taken to an undisclosed location for isolation.

Farmers fear fracking could spell financial ruin

Farmers fear they could face financial ruin from government plans to allow fracking beneath their land without compensation, the National Farmers' Union has warned.

Ministers pushing for shale gas exploration cannot take the support of rural communities for granted and are turning farmers against the process by appearing to brush side their concerns, it warned.

The Government is pressing ahead with new laws that would strip people of power to block fracking beneath their property or land. It has insisted no compensation will be paid to individual home and landowners, because they should not be affected by the gas or oil extraction deep beneath them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at nyagainstfracking.org:

As the State rapidly approaches the deadline to decide whether to allow fracking to go forward in New York, residents from across Pennsylvania came forward to tell legislators their stories. New Yorkers Against Fracking also released an ad, which will initially run in the Albany and New York City markets highlighting stories of dead cows and poisoned water. Since fracking began in states outside of New York, there have been numerous reports of water contamination. Studies link fracking-related activities to contaminated groundwater; air pollution; illness, death, and reproductive problems in cows, horses and wildlife; and human health problems. “These stories from Pennsylvania are very alarming,” said Dr. Sheila Bushkin, MD, MPH of the Institute for Health and the Environment at University at Albany. “The perspective of the gas industry fails to show adequate concern for the long-term health and quality of life of people. When you listen to the personal experiences of actual residents of Pennsylvania and other states where fracking has gone forward, you will hear stories of dead cows, pets, sick children, poisoned water and other serious health and environmental problems. These stories confirm our need for much greater research and evidence-based scientific facts.” “My story is not unusual,” said Terry Greenwood, a farmer from Southwestern Pennsylvania. “After my cows drank from a pond that was contaminated by frackwater, 10 of the 19 calves were born stillborn.” “The industry says there are no problems,” said Matt Manning. “Well when the industry came to Northeastern PA, our water turned black and started bubbling. Our kids would cough and choke in the shower. It got so bad that the state required the companies to provide us with deliveries of clean water. But that’s not a long-term solution.”

Actually, in the UK, all fracking should be mandated beneath the homes of all members of the House of Lords and the House of Commons.

It would be very instructive to see how well THEY like it, and what their health costs would be

Transmission of infectious diseases during commercialair travel - Lancet

The transmission of
Mycobacterium
tuberculosis
is the most studied model of the spread of
airborne pathogens aboard aircraft. Several studies
about in-flight transmission of tuberculosis have been
reported, with most being done in the mid-1990s.
4,29,30,39–41
Two of the seven investigations revealed a probable link
of onboard transmission. In the first occurrence, a flight
attendant was the index case, and two documented
tuberculin skin test conversions occurred during
5 months in 1992 in 212 fellow crew members and
59 frequent flyer passengers.

The second, and largest,
incident was of a passenger with pulmonary
tuberculosis travelling from Baltimore to Chicago and
then on to Honolulu.

Four of 15 fellow passengers
seated within two rows of the index passenger had
positive tuberculin skin test conversion. Although there
is a risk of tuberculosis within the aircraft cabin, no
cases of active disease have been reported as a result of

Infection Transmission During Air Travel

It is clear that due to lower air exchange rates and decreased sunlight, enclosed spaces such as buildings and transport vehicles are more susceptible to the transmission of infectious particles than are the outdoors.[1] Aircraft cabins are particularly worrisome due to high occupant densities and long exposure times. Well-documented outbreaks of tuberculosis, influenza, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and norovirus are alleged to have occurred during air travel.[2][3][4][5] All of these diseases are transmitted via either large droplets or aerosolization.[6]

Experts starting to admit it may take vaccine to stop Ebola in West Africa

As West Africa's Ebola outbreak continues to rage, some experts are coming to the conclusion that it may take large amounts of vaccines and maybe even drugs — all still experimental and in short supply — to bring the outbreak under control.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here comes the cash-grab by Big Pharma! Apparently when the WHO said experimental and unproven therapies were allowable during this crisis, what they meant was that experimental and unproven therapies by big corporations are allowable during this crisis, as they are still blocking efforts to test and use alternative (non patentable) therapies such as colloidal silver. The history of vaccines is not reassuring, given how many vaccines have actually caused more harm than good, such as India's polio vaccine in 2011, or the 1976 Swine Flu vaccines here in the US. Indeed there are reports that the current Ebola outbreak is connected with an experimental vaccine trial at the research lab at Kenema.

Is vitamin C helpful against Ebola?

Understandably, there are no trials yet testing vitamin C against the Ebola virus, either in the test-tube or real life. However, there are many good reasons to consider that it would be very helpful in the right doses. Currently, the medical/pharmaceutical thrust is towards creating a vaccine or a drug treatment, most likely involving the injection of large amounts of anti-Ebola antibodies. The few labs that do have access to testing Ebola are unlikely to be testing the effects of vitamin C on Ebola any time soon.

However, two top medical vitamin C experts believe that it could help. As extraordinary as this might sound there is NO VIRUS yet investigated that a sustained high dose of vitamin C, given intravenously, or in high and continuous oral doses, hasn't killed off or substantially suppressed.

U.S.Doctor Successfully Treated for Ebola Hospitalized

A Massachusetts doctor and missionary who was successfully treated for Ebola he contracted in Africa is back in the hospital with what appears to be a respiratory infection, but doctors don't suspect a recurrence of the virus.

UMass Memorial Medical Center said in a statement that Dr. Richard Sacra was hospitalized Saturday for observation and is in stable condition. He has a cough and conjunctivitis, commonly known as pinkeye, hospital officials said.

Sacra will remain in isolation until doctors have confirmation from tests by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that he is not infected with the virus, the hospital said. Doctors expect to know with certainty by late Monday.

During a segment of Fox News Channel's Saturday night edition of "Justice with Judge Jeanine Pirro," the host discussed a number of aspects with regard to the deadly and frightening Ebola virus that appears to have caught the Obama administration by surprise. Besides lambasting President Barack Obama and his underlings for their alleged contradictory statements and their downplaying the threat to public health and national security, Judge Pirro addressed the treat of weaponized Ebola and the use of a "suicide Ebola carrier" by Islamic terrorists.

THE CDC & THE UN ARE FORCED TO ADMIT THAT EBOLA IS AIRBORNE

This Was Then

The Original CDC Position on How is Ebola Spread

The following was on the CDC website in early September and this is the mantra that the mainstream media is parroting as the “official and irrefutable doctrine of science”.

“The virus is spread through direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with blood and body fluids (urine, feces, saliva, vomit, and semen) of a person who is sick with Ebola, or with objects (like needles) that have been contaminated with the virus. Ebola is not spread through the air or by water or, in general, by food; however, in Africa, Ebola may be spread as a result of handling bushmeat (wild animals hunted for food) and contact with infected bats.”

USDA continues secret process of appointing corporate factory farm executives to Organic Standards Board

The NOSB is supposed to be comprised of individuals representing farmers, environmentalists, public interest advocates, handlers, retailers, scientists and a USDA certifying agent, as reported by Natural News. However, one of the nation's leading organic industry watchdog groups has persistently criticized the selection of four NOSB board appointees and the secrecy surrounding their nominations.

"The selection process was conducted in secrecy despite requests to cast sunlight on the decision making and solicit input from a very engaged community of organic farmers, businesses, and consumers," said Will Fantle, the co-director for The Cornucopia Institute.

"We think a more transparent process would ensure the selection of the best and brightest for the various vacancies on the board -- instead of, once again, appeasing the organic corporate lobby."

United Airlines trying to contact passengers from Ebola victim’s flights

After United Continental Holdings Inc. said it learned that a Liberian national now hospitalized with Ebola in Dallas traveled on two United flights on Sept. 20, the airline said it immediately began trying to contact the “several hundred” other passengers on the two flights.

United UAL, +4.66% said it is providing those customers with contact information for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, should they have questions or concerns, while also telling them the CDC has said there is “zero risk of transmission” of the often deadly virus on the flights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This even after the CDC has admitted that contagion is possible from touching a surface that the infected person touched, and that aerosolized Ebola can survive on surfaces (such as airline counters, ATM machines, voting machines, aircraft and airport bathroom fixtures) for days!

Texas Hospital Changes Ebola Patient Account

A day after saying that doctors didn’t receive a Liberian patient’s travel history due to an electronics records glitch, the Dallas hospital that initially failed to admit the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. has changed its version of events, stating that information that he had come from Africa was in fact available to doctors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every time they change the story is further erodes public trust that the government has a handle on this crisis. This is feeling more and more like a repeat of Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, the Gulf Oil Disaster, etc. in which the government is to totally focused on creating fake crisis to get our votes, money, and obedience, they are unable to deal with a real emergency.

CDC chief on Ebola: We can’t shut the border

Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on Friday said restricting travel between the U.S. and West Africa would likely “backfire” and put Americans more at risk of contracting Ebola.

Appearing on MSNBC, Frieden was asked about potentially prohibiting air travel between the U.S. and West Africa, where the Ebola outbreak is most widespread. He said that such a restriction would likely be ineffective and would make it harder for health officials to root out the virus.

“The only way we’re going to get to zero risk is by stopping the outbreak at the source” in West Africa, Frieden said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Stopping the outbreak at the source sounds great; but do we leave US citizens hostage to more ebola infections in the meanwhile?!?

Because by not stopping flights out of some of the most hard hit countries in Africa, that is precisely what this government is doing.

I do not know if this is standard US governmental incompetence, or something else.

But I do know one thing: if there is one more ebola infection confirmed in the US, this man needs to be sacked and immediately.

Ebola patient's family moved to undisclosed location

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins escorted Duncan's family out of the apartment Friday afternoon personally, while wearing no protective gear in an effort to show the public that the family is healthy and there is no reason for concern.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So they are making decisions based on public relations rather than science. That is a recipe for disaster!

Meanwhile I want to know if the Duncan family had a dog and where that dog is, and especially if the dog was allowed to wander the neighborhood after being exposed to Thomas Duncan. According to the CDC, dogs can carry the Ebola virus and be infectious but show no symptoms of being ill. If Duncan's family has a dog, and that dog acquired Ebola, then spread it to other dogs in the neighborhood, then we are looking at a major vector for the spread of the disease. Remember that it was rats (specifically the fleas on them) that were the major carrier of Bubonic plaque across Europe ... and people are much more friendly with dogs than rats!

LDS missionaries evacuated due to Ebola outbreak safely underway to new assignments

All LDS missionaries serving in the epicenter of the Ebola outbreak in west Africa have safely left Sierra Leone and Liberia, according to an update released Wednesday by the church.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Friday that it was evacuating 274 missionaries serving in those two nations. The missionaries are being transferred to new assignments in other countries.

The update said many of the missionaries will be traveling over the next few days and will call their families when they arrive in their new locations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WITHOUT A 21 DAY QUARANTINE FIRST?!?

Are they out of their minds?!? With 274 Missionaries, there is a good chance one or more might be infected, and remember that the standard Ebola test won't show an infection until the patients have actually been symptomatic for three days or more!

According to this article, two of the missionaries died from the disease!

Now in this case they lucked out because it has been more than 21 days, but someone was taking a heck of a reckless chance!

The list of current LDS Missions includes Canada and the US!

Dallas Paramedic Slams Health Officials; Was Not Informed Of Ebola Diagnosis; Drove Contaminated Ambulance For 2 Days

Paramedics who attended to the Ebola diagnosed patient in Dallas were not contacted by hospital officials, local or state health officials, or the CDC to inform them that they were driving around in an ambulance that could be contaminated with the infectious virus.

According to a report by Breitbart News, one of the paramedics himself says that it was not until 48 hours after he had transported Thomas Duncan to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital that he was informed that he could be driving around in an Ebola contaminated death trap.

“[It was] 48 hours later before they finally took the ambulance out of service,” said Dallas Paramedic Geoffrey Aklinski in a discussion on Facebook, referring to the September 28th incident when Duncan was picked up, violently vomiting, at his apartment.

Outrage! Ebola vomit washed down storm drain

America wants to know: Why in the world isn’t the Ebola clean-up crew in Dallas, Texas, wearing protective biohazard suits to prevent further spread of the deadly virus?

A photo posted online by Dallas/Fort Worth’s WFAA-TV News showed workers pressure washing the sidewalk where Thomas Duncan, a man who arrived from Liberia on Sept. 20 and was confirmed to have the Ebola virus, had vomited all over the ground outside The Ivy Apartments on Sept. 26. Hunter’s family members are reportedly quarantined in an apartment unit under armed guard after they attempted to violate orders to remain in their home.

The workers, who appeared to be allowing the potentially contaminated water wash down the storm drains, wore no protective gear – not even gloves.

CDC - Ebola Virus Antibody Prevalence inDogs and Human Risk

During the 2001–2002 outbreak in Gabon, we observed that several dogs were highly exposed to Ebola virus by eating infected dead animals. To examine whether these animals became infected with Ebola virus, we sam-
pled 439 dogs and screened them by Ebola virus–specific immunoglobulin (Ig) G assay, antigen detection, and viral polymerase chain reaction amplification. Seven (8.9%) of 79 samples from the 2 main towns, 15 (15.2%) of 99 samples from Mekambo, and 40 (25.2%) of 159 samples from villages in the Ebola virus–epidemic area had detectable Ebola virus–IgG, compared to only 2 (2%) of 102 samples from France. Among dogs from villages with both infected animal carcasses and human cases, seroprevalence was 31.8%. A significant positive direct association
existed between seroprevalence and the distances to the Ebola virus–epidemic area. This study suggests that dogs can be infected by Ebola virus and that the putative infection is asymptomatic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, dogs can acquire the Ebola virus and not show any symptoms at all.

Now, we know the man in Dallas vomited outside his home before he was taken back to the hospital, and it was some time before workers arrived to clean up the mess with pressure washers. Any neighborhood dogs that came across the vomit and sniffed at it (or worse, licked it) may have the Ebola virus, and will not show any symptoms. Yet they will be able to pass the virus to other dogs and humans in the course of their normal behaviors.

Guess I better stop playing with the neighborhood dogs!

In 2010 Obama Administration Scrapped CDC Quarantine Regulations Aimed At Ebola

In October 2014, the first patient on American soil infected with the Ebola virus sits in isolation in a Texas hospital, prompting calls for travel restrictions between the United States and Ebola-stricken countries.

Meanwhile, four years ago, the administration of President Barack Obama moved with virtually no fanfare to abandon a comprehensive set of regulations which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had called essential to preventing international travelers from spreading deadly diseases inside the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And that may explain why the same administration screaming about human-caused global warming is acting like the very real threat of Ebola is no big deal! To save the Prez embarrassment!

The Dallas Ebola Case: An Immigration-Related Process Conspiracy?

To begin, consider that people like Dr. Sanjay Gupta keep saying that the Dallas Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan had “told the nurse” who attended to him upon his first arrival at the Texas Presbyterian Hospital Emergency Room that he had “traveled “to” Africa.”

That’s certainly a very odd thing for a Liberian national, having just arrived from Monrovia, Liberia to the United States for the very first time in his life, to have supposedly said, is it not? Of course, it fits the CDC Checklist used prior to, and including, Duncan’s case, so that must have been exactly what Duncan said, right Sanjay?

Cleaners turned away at Ebola patient's home

Brad Smith of the Cleaning Guys, which was hired to sanitize the apartment, said his company is ready to go but a permit issue has stopped them from entering the home. Smith says a specialized permit, which is handled by the state government, is needed to transport this type of unprecedented hazardous waste on Texas highways. Cleaning Guys specializes in hazmat and biohazard cleaning services, but it does not transport the materials.

It's unclear how long it will take to get the proper permits.

Judge Rebukes Government, Keeps Gitmo Force-Feeding Hearing Open

A federal judge has knocked down the government’s attempt to hold a secret hearing in a case challenging the military’s practice of force-feeding Guantanamo detainees who are on hunger strike.

U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler called the government’s desire to close the proceedings “deeply troubling,” and chastised the Department of Justice for appearing to “deliberately” make the request “on short notice.”

The case involves Abu Wa’el Dhiab, a Syrian man who has been held at Guantanamo since 2002, though he was cleared for transfer out of the island prison by the military in 2009. He began a hunger strike last year and claims that he has been subjected to painful and abusive force-feedings. He has asked the federal court to intervene and stop the military forcing him from his cell and restraining him during the feedings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on Judge Kessler!

Anyone who has had the process proscribed by a doctor, during a convalescence, understands that even with the best, and most compassionate specialists, the process is uncomfortable at best.

To be used in a punitive manor against those who are on a hunger strike, when they have been cleared for release 5 years ago, is immoral and reprehensible
.

But, at all levels, unfortunately, that is what the US government has become: immoral and reprehensible.

Dallas Co. sheriff's officers entered quarantined apartment

Five members of the Dallas County Sheriff's Department who were briefly inside the apartment where a man with Ebola stayed have been temporarily put on leave.?

"They're very concerned," said Christopher Dyer, president of the Dallas County Sheriff's Association. ?"Their families are concerned. You've got to go home and tell your spouse, 'Hey, I was just inside this house where a guy had Ebola.'"

The three deputies, a sergeant, and a lieutenant accompanied the head of Dallas County Health and Human Services Department and a doctor into the apartment late Wednesday night. They had gone there on the orders of Sheriff Lupe Valdez to get the people inside to sign a court order forbidding them from leaving the apartment.

Dyer said deputies should never have been involved to begin with, because he considers it a federal issue and not a local matter.

Contagion Blast Radius: How Far Can Ebola Droplets Travel?

One virologist, Alan Schmaljohn at the University of Maryland School of Medicinewas asked if Ebola was airborne and states, “With Ebola, large droplets — which neither travel very far nor hang in the air for long — are the real risk factors. That means an Ebola-infected person would likely have to cough or sneeze up blood or other bodily fluids directly in your face for you to catch the virus, Schmaljohn says. If that drop of blood doesn’t land on your face, it will just fall to the ground. It won’t be swimming in the air, waiting to be breathed in by an unsuspecting passerby.” Source

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A droplet from an infected person can land on a smooth surface such as a counter or rail or sink, and under the right circumstances, last for days!

Can Ebola survive on a surface? That and other questions answered

In one study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Ebola virus lived on a surface in a perfectly controlled environment for up to six days. But the environment at an airport, for example, or a school is not perfectly suited to support viruses.

Ebola is easily destroyed outside of the body, experts say. UV light, heat and exposure to oxygen all deactivate the virus over time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Six days under perfect conditions, so let us say 1 day under less than perfect conditions, which at an airport is enough time to pass the virus to several hundred people.

Ibuprofen Is All It Takes to Avoid Airport Ebola Screening: Experts

"The fever-screening instruments run low and aren't that accurate," said infection control specialist Sean Kaufman, president of Behavioral-Based Improvement Solutions, a biosafety company based in Atlanta. "And people can take ibuprofen to reduce their fever enough to pass screening, and why wouldn't they? If it will get them on a plane so they can come to the United States and get effective treatment after they're exposed to Ebola, wouldn't you do that to save your life?" On Thursday, Liberia said the first Ebola patient to be diagnosed in the United States had lied on a questionnaire at Monrovia's airport about his exposure to an Ebola patient. Thomas Eric Duncan's arrival and hospitalization in Dallas have underscored how much U.S. authorities are relying on their counterparts in West African countries to screen passengers and contain the worst Ebola outbreak on record.

And Now, Ladies an’ Gentlemen: Obama’s ‘War on Ebola’

Now Obama’s advisers, no doubt led by the blood-thirsty National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, have come up with a new war. This is the War Against Ebola. On September 16, President Obama solemnly declared the war. He announced, to the surprise of most sane citizens, that he had ordered 3,000 American troops, the so-called “boots on the ground” that the Pentagon refuses to agree to in Syria, to wage a war against….a virus?

Ebola strikes NBC cameraman

An American working as a freelance cameraman for NBC News has tested positive for Ebola and plans to return to the U.S. for treatment, the news network said late Thursday. The journalist, who wasn't identified by name, was working in Liberia for NBC. A Doctors Without Borders treatment center on Wednesday diagnosed the 33-year-old cameraman, who was said to be "in good spirits" despite carrying the deadly disease. He becomes the fourth U.S. national to contract Ebola, which has killed thousands in West Africa.

Schoolchildren exposed in US Ebola scare: Texas governor Rick Perry reveals fears for kids and says 18 Americans may have virus after hospital sent infected man home

His sister Mai Wureh said her sick brother told officials the first time he went to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital that he was visiting from the West African country in the so-called 'Ebola hot zone' - before he was sent home with antibiotics, a critically missed opportunity to prevent others being exposed to the disease.

Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles said on Wednesday the children who came in contact with Mr Duncan are showing no symptoms and are now being monitored at home. As an added precaution, Miles says additional health and custodial staff will be at the high, middle and two elementary schools the students attend.

Mr Duncan's family are among up to 18 people being monitored after exposure to the man along with the ambulance crew who transported him to hospital.

No Obamacare Bailouts for Insurers Without Congressional Approval, Says GAO

y forcing Americans to buy their products, President Obama's signature Affordable Care Act is widely seen as a winning proposition for health insurance companies. Conscripted customers! What more could a well-connected business want? But the law's complex rules require insurers to cover the costs imposed by older and ailing customers with the payments from young and healthy customers. Potentially, a company could end up with a disproportionate ratio of sick customers drawn by the promise of subsidized coverage—drowning the seemingly winning proposition in red ink. If that happens, says the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the administration can't bail out insurers without permission from Congress.

Liberia to prosecute man who brought Ebola to US

Thomas Eric Duncan filled out a series of questions about his health and activities before leaving on his journey to Dallas. On a Sept. 19 form obtained by The Associated Press, he answered no to all of them.

Among other questions, the form asked whether Duncan had cared for an Ebola patient or touched the body of anyone who had died in an area affected by Ebola.

"We expect people to do the honorable thing," said Binyah Kesselly, chairman of the board of directors of the Liberia Airport Authority in Monrovia. The agency took the case to the Ministry of Justice, which will formally prosecute it.

Neighbors in the Liberian capital believe Duncan become infected when he helped bundle a sick pregnant neighbor into a taxi a few weeks ago and set off with her to find treatment.

No Ebola, Says Hawaii Health Department

The Hawaii State Department of Health (DOH) has determined that the individual in isolation at a Honolulu hospital who was reported to the department as a possible Ebola case yesterday does not meet the criteria for testing. The individual is no longer under evaluation for possible Ebola infection.

“The hospital acted in the best interests of the community, with an abundance of caution,” said Health Director Dr. Linda Rosen. “We commend the facility for being prepared and remaining vigilant regarding the risk of Ebola. After investigation by the health department, it was determined that the individual did not meet the clinical or travel exposure criteria for an Ebola infection.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So ... basically they are saying they are not going to bother testing him. I would frankly feel better if they had gone ahead with the test and had it come back negative.

Frankly, this feels like pure political bovine excrement to protect Hawaii's tourism industry. The first reports on this patient indicated that his doctors felt he met the criteria, including travel.

And, claiming that he has not traveled to Ebola infected areas assumes one knows all the places where Ebola is right now, which is impossible. Prior to the first of this week, one would not have seen Dallas or Brussels on the list of locations where Ebola infection is possible.

Now it is being reported that Thomas Duncan lied to authorities in Liberia to board the aircraft, denying he had come in contact with an Ebola patient. The Hawaii State Department of Health is betting the lives of our citizens that the patient at Queen's has been fully truthful.

Top Doctors: Ebola May Become Airborne … And May ALREADY Be Transmissible Via Aerosols

Viruses like Ebola are notoriously sloppy in replicating, meaning the virus entering one person may be genetically different from the virus entering the next. The current Ebola virus’s hyper-evolution is unprecedented; there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1,000 years. Each new infection represents trillions of throws of the genetic dice.

Health Officials Say More Than 80 People Were Exposed To Texas Ebola Patient

More than 80 people had direct or indirect contact with the first person to be diagnosed with the deadly Ebola virus in the United States, health officials said Thursday, as four members of the patient's family were quarantined as a precaution.

Dallas County officials said 12 to 18 people had direct contact with the Texas patient, and they in turn had contact with scores of others. All were being monitored and none had shown any symptoms.

A top health official urged U.S. hospitals to heed lessons from Dallas, where a hospital initially sent the ailing patient home, despite information that he had recently visited West Africa, potentially exposing more people to the virus.

Texas health officials told four "close" relatives of the patient not to entertain visitors and said they could be arrested if they leave their homes without permission through Oct. 19. The four did not exhibit symptoms, they said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, are these Texas health officials making sure that these people have food delivered to them while they are being monitored, and unable to leave their homes?

That they have been exposed to ebola does not make them any less human than they were before this exposure, and I would like to hope that some compassionate steps are being made to insure their emotional, and physical, well-being during what is obviously a very traumatic time for them.

How Bad Could It Get? US Government Order Of 160,000 HazMat Suits Gives A Clue

Now that Ebola is officially in the US on an uncontrolled basis, the two questions on everyone’s lips are i) who will get sick next and ii) how bad could it get?

We don’t know the answer to question #1 just yet, but when it comes to the second one, a press release three weeks ago from Lakeland Industries, a manufacturer and seller of a “comprehensive line of safety garments and accessories for the industrial protective clothing market” may provide some insight into just how bad the US State Department thinks it may get. Because when the US government buys 160,000 hazmat suits specifically designed against Ebola, just ahead of the worst Ebola epidemic in history making US landfall, one wonders: what do they know the we don’t?

EXCLUSIVE: Gotnews.com Has LEAKED Flight Info of #Ebola Dallas Patient

Thomas Duncan flew from Monrovia (ROB) to Brussels (BRU) on Brussels Airlines flight 1247 (SN1247) which departed ROB on Thurs. Sept. 18 and arrived in BRU early moring Fri. Sept. 19. He did not depart BRU until the next day aboard United Airlines flight (UA951) which arrived at Dulles (IAD) the same day. He had a round-trip ticket, which was purchased on Sept. 2 from an IATA accredited travel agency in Lagos, Nigeria. It appears his ticket was purchased by a company named “Silson Global Business Liberia Ltd.”. His return flight was scheduled to depart Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) on Oct. 19. The return flight was scheduled for DFW-IAD-BRU-FNA (FNA is Lungi Intl Airport in Freetown, Sierra Leone).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, he spent an entire night on the ground in Brussels. That means Ebola could be in the EU capitol. And Duncan changed planes at Dulles, meaning the same for the Washington DC area (I am waiting for Obama to say this is all an eeeeeevil Russian plot). Duncan arrived in Dallas Sept. 20th and made his first visit to the hospital (where he was sent home) on the 26th. Working backwards along the 21 day incubation period it seems reasonable that he was already infected when he boarded the plane in Monrovia on the 18th, having become infected somewhere between Sept. 5th and Sept. 12th..

Ebola virus is detected in blood only after the onset of symptoms, usually fever. It may take up to 3 days after symptoms appear for the virus to reach detectable levels. Virus is generally detectable by real-time RT-PCR from 3-10 days after symptoms appear.

So apparently an Ebola patient has to be fully symptomatic for three days before the virus will show up in a test. How very reassuring!

EBOLA: Obama downplays danger from a highly infectious disease

Would Barack Hussein Obama ever lie to the America public?

Why, of course not.

That’s why wise and prudent Americans will keep an eye on the spread of Ebola in the U.S. and take announcements pooh-poohing the risk from Obama regime political appointees with a generous dose of salt.

Here’s what Thomas Frieden, director of US Centers for Disease Control had to say about this bug: “Ebola poses little risk to the U.S. general population,” and that its spread across the U.S. “is not in the cards”.

We certainly hope he’s right, but smart folks would be reluctant to bet their lives on it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


All jokes aside, the fact is that the US Government blew this one. They were so focused on playing their game of conquer-the-world and wagging a phony terror threat at us that they were oblivious to a real emerging problem. And even now as Ebola emerges here in the United States, the priority of the US Government does not seem to be the health of the population so much as keeping us all working, keeping us paying the bankers, making sure we all max out our credit cards for the coming holiday shopping season, maximizing the financial opportunity for the pharmaceutical corporations (whose generous donations are appreciated in these final weeks before the November mid-terms) and hey, it's not like we needed those people who actually did die anyway! So we are seeing this dual message on the corporate media that we should be in abject fear of a made-up terror threat, but Ebola, which has all but destroyed west African countries, is just no big deal worth getting your knickers in a twist about.

The Mathematics of Ebola Trigger Stark Warnings: Act Now or Regret It

The Eurosurveillance paper, by two researchers from the University of Tokyo and Arizona State University, attempts to derive what the reproductive rate has been in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. (Note for actual epidemiology geeks: The calculation is for the effective reproductive number, pegged to a point in time, hence actually Rt.) They come up with an R of at least 1, and in some cases 2; that is, at certain points, sick persons have caused disease in two others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Before everyone starts to panic, let's put that R-naught of 2 into perspective. Measles has an R-naught of 12-18. Smallpox and Polio are 6. Flu is between 2 and 3.

Ebola Outbreak: The Latest U.S. Government Lies

We begin with the Public Health Agency of Canada, which once (as recently as August 6) stated on its website that:

“In the laboratory, infection through small-particle aerosols has been demonstrated in primates, and airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected, although it has not yet been conclusively demonstrated (1, 6, 13). The importance of this route of transmission is not clear. Poor hygienic conditions can aid the spread of the virus.”

No more; the “airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected” language has been cleansed:

“In laboratory settings, non-human primates exposed to aerosolized ebolavirus from pigs have become infected, however, airborne transmission has not been demonstrated between non-human primates

Webmaster's Commentary: 

During the Reston Virginia Ebola outbreak (which thankfully only infected monkeys) the contagion spread from the room where the sick monkeys were being kept to a room full of healthy animals, apparently through the air conditioning ducts. This incident forms the core of the book "The Hot Zone" by Richard Preston.

All who have been in close contact with the man diagnosed are being monitored as a precaution, Zachary Thompson, director of Dallas County Health and Human Services, said in a morning interview with WFAA-TV.

"Let me be real frank to the Dallas County residents: The fact that we have one confirmed case, there may be another case that is a close associate with this particular patient," he said. "So this is real. There should be a concern, but it's contained to the specific family members and close friends at this moment."

FDA threatens three companies with criminal charges for making Ebola treatment claims (but won't test natural substances against Ebola)

FDA and FTC are simply wrong about the law. And during the Ebola Epidemic their actions actively violate the July, 2014 World Health Organization (WHO) pronouncement that, during this crisis, offering even "unproven interventions" is ethical. What is not ethical is the position taken by the FDA and FTC.

Beyond the warning letters, here's the rest of the story the national press isn't reporting

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is getting more and more interesting. The trial of colloidal silver that was proposed in Nigeria was canceled due to political pressure, while the media proclaimed loudly that the treatment could not possibly work.

Meanwhile, a document has surfaced showing that the United States Air Force Research Laboratory has documented not only that colloidal silver is an anti-viral, but the mechanism by which it prevents the Ebola virus from multiplying in the body!

How enlightening to confirm that the FDA, in order to preserve the profits of the pharmaceutical corporations, is willing to allow humans too poor to pay for costly corporate Ebola treatments to die one of the most horrible deaths imaginable!

Now that Ebola "patient zero" has been confirmed in the United States, it's clear that Ebola is spreading far beyond the control of any government or health department. Just weeks ago, President Obama promised Ebola wouldn't arrive in the United States, but now it's here.

The CDC is promising that they can keep it all under control for this patient discovered to have carried Ebola into Dallas. But can they also contain the next Ebola patient? How about the one after that? And how does any government contain a viral pandemic that can't be stopped with bullets and bombs?

FLASHBACK - US Vaccines Caused 'Spanish Flu'

"The 1918 'Spanish Flu' started in American military Camp Funston, Fort Riley, USA amongst troops making ready for W.W.I - taking on board vaccinations, recruit training and all. It eventually killed about 40,000,000 people worldwide. That flu strain only appeared briefly once again, according to the US Atlanta CDC. This was in 1976 and again it struck at the US army camp Fort Dix, USA, amongst recently vaccinated troops (and no one else EVER); Fort Dix is known to have been a vaccine trial centre. Was the world's greatest 'influenza' scourge another well-hidden vaccine disaster?"---John P Heptonstall

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The 1918 flu pandemic was proclaimed the "Spanish Flu" even though it clearly did not originate in Spain. This suggests that even back then, something was being covered up.

This is worth recalling now that multiple sources have identified the Kenema bioweapons lab in Sierra Leone, operated by Fort Detrick and biologists from Tulane University (but now closed and under investigation by the Sierra Leone government), as the starting point for the current Ebola outbreak and that an Ebola vaccine being tested either accidentally or deliberately triggered the disease.

60 Percent of Voters Want Obamacare to Be Repealed

A new poll finds that three-fifths of likely voters support the repeal of Obamacare. A large plurality — 44 percent — wants to see Obamacare repealed and replaced with a conservative alternative. A much smaller group —16 percent — wants to see it repealed but not replaced. Less than one in three respondents — 32 percent — would like to keep Obamacare, whether in its current form or in amended form. So, with a conservative alternative in play, 60 percent of Americans support repeal, while only 32 percent oppose it.

After first Ebola case, red flags emerge that U.S. unprepared for pandemic

The confirmation Tuesday of the first Ebola case on U.S. soil emerges against a backdrop of increasing concern in America’s medical community that preparedness for a pandemic has stagnated or slipped in recent years because of tough economic times and increasing malaise since the 2001 anthrax threat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have a political ruling class comprised mostly of lawyers and money-junkies, who have little if any real knowledge of how to do anything. Couple that with the de-funding of necessary preparedness to support the war and prop up Wall Street and it becomes obvious that the same US Government that botched the 1976 flu epidemic with a vaccine that killed fifty times more people than the flu did, the same government that mishandled Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, the same government that allowed and then was unable to handle the Gulf Oil disaster, is woefully unprepared to deal with Ebola. On top of that, 80% of the nation no longer believes what the government says, according to a recent NBC/WSJ poll, which means even if the government stumbled onto a solution by blind luck, most people would not listen anyway.

While yesterday's CDC press conference was factual, it was clearly very much designed to avoid panic as time and again the US public was reassured that Ebola in America was 'contained', 'hard to contract', and would 'stop here'. However, as Bloomberg reports, the man with Ebola in Dallas was initially sent home from the hospital with antibiotics after seeking treatment for an unknown illness, officials said.

Could polio or other vaccinations be behind the new "polio-like" Illness outbreak in California?

After years of massive administration of polio vaccine, India was declared polio-free and the last reported incidence of polio in India was in January 2011. Although the reported milestone has been widely publicized, what has not been so widely reported is that there were an extra 47,500 new cases in 2011 of the rare illness known as Non-Polio Acute Flaccid Paralysis (NPAFP).

The incidence of NPAFP in India in 2011 was 12 times higher than expected and was found to be directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. Though it may be called "Non-Polio" the symptoms of NPAFP are clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis and the illness is twice as deadly.

The incidence of non-polio Accute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP) in India is now 12 times higher than expected and coincides with huge increases in OPV doses being given to children in the quest to “eradicate” wild type polio infection and paralysis.

Federal Judge Rules Detroit Residents Have No “Fundamental Right” to Water

Rhodes dismissed a lawsuit filed by victims of the water shutoffs, which argued that the city’s policy was doing irreparable harm to residents and threatened to create a public health disaster. The residents argued that the city’s policy violated the 14th Amendment’s prohibition against a state “depriving any person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law” and the principle of “equal protection” under the law, since service to major corporations, which failed to pay, had not been discontinued.

Ebola-stricken Liberia is descending into economic hell

Liberia, the West African nation hardest it by Ebola, has begun a frightening descent into economic hell.

That’s the import of three recent reports from international organizations that seem to bear out the worst-case scenarios of months ago: that people would abandon the fields and factories, that food and fuel would become scarce and unaffordable, and that the government’s already meager capacity to help, along with the nation’s prospects for a better future, would be severely compromised.

Hospitals ask patients to pay upfront

Get ready to whip out your credit card before you are wheeled into the operating room or undergo an MRI.

Hospitals are increasingly asking patients to pay for procedures either upfront or before they are discharged. That's because Americans are shouldering a greater portion of their health care bills, and medical centers don't want to get stuck with patients that can't pay.

What is 'vaccine spectrum disorder' and why is it called autism?

Vaccine spectrum disorder (VSD) is the disorder children get from receiving too many vaccines too close together, many of which are combinations of viruses, bacteria and toxic adjuvants. VSD is purposely misdiagnosed and renamed autism spectrum disorder so that the vaccine industry can continue with its toxic regimen that creates customers for life. The vaccine schedule is leading to a broad array of disorders and 'spectrum' is just a pharma buzz word to keep the public from staring right at the REAL problem, which is that we are injecting toxins into muscle tissue, including aluminum and mercury, over and over again during the first six years of a child's life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Amish people avoid vaccines and have a current autism rate of 1 in 10,000 children. For the rest of the US population, the rate is 1 out of every 68 children.

Vaccine researcher charged with felony crimes for research fraud; may spend 20 years in prison over faked AIDS vaccine

Scientific fraud is so common in the vaccine industry, it's practically the default business model. The truth is that most vaccines don't work, so in order to make them appear to work, researchers routinely spike blood samples of vaccinated test subjects with antibodies, making it appear the vaccine caused the body to produce those antibodies.

This is exactly what Merck does with MMR vaccines, according to the company's own former virologists who filed a False Claims Act with the federal government. It's also why up to 97% of children who contract measles or mumps were already vaccinated against measles and mumps.

German Ebola Aid Plane Grounded

A German military transport plane delivering medical aid to Ebola-stricken regions spent the weekend grounded by technical problems in the Canary Islands, further highlighting the country's poor state of military readiness.

Coming less than a week after a leaked government report to lawmakers showed that some of the German military's oldest hardware is falling into disrepair, the incident is piling pressure on Chancellor Angela Merkel's government to fix the country's defenses.

Penalty for Opting Out of the Affordable Care Act Is Large ($12,240) and Growing

You Won’t Believe How Much Money Michelle Obama’s Ridiculous School Lunch Program Wastes On A Daily Basis

According to a WCPO report, Michelle Obama’s new school program is costing American taxpayers $4 million. And that’s not over the course of an entire year. That is how much it is costing American taxpayers on a daily basis. That’s right; $4 million each day.

A whopping 81 percent of schools have seen an increase in the number of lunches that now end up in the trash. The report also “shows that 60 percent of fresh vegetables and 40 percent of fresh fruit are being thrown away.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Would you be comfortable with your doctor's spouse operating on you? How about riding in a passenger jet where the controls were in the hands of the pilot's significant other?

Being the first lady does not mean Michelle is competent at anything (other than her ability to seduce and marry Obama). And just as you do not allow a doctor's spouse or a pilot's fiancee to take over their duties, nor should the first lady be accorded any authority over our lives merely because of who she married.

Japan Declares Level 3 Emergency, At Least One Dead After Volcano Erupts In Central Japan

When one thinks of Japan and natural disaster, the things that usually come to mind are earthquakes, tsunamis, radioactive lizards, the occasional massive nuclear power plant explosion. Not volcanoes - those are usually delegated to the sole country that dared to give bankers the middle finger, Iceland. And yet, overnight Japan declared a level 3 alert (on a scale of 1 to 5) when a volcano in central Japan erupted, sending ash clouds down the mountain’s slope for more than 3 kilometers. According to RT, at least one person has died and 70 were injured, while aircraft have been forced to divert to avoid the dangerous area. Medics confirmed the death of at least one person, while 70 more were reported to be injured, NHK reported. Thirty of the injured have been sent to hospital in critical condition, health officials added. One can only hope there were no nuclear power plants in the immediate vicinity of the volcano.

Autism In Amish Children – 1 in 10,000

After learning that “Autism Rates Rocket – 1 in 38 British Boys – Cambridge Study” we now find Dr. Max Wiznitzer, a key vaccine proponent admitted on Friday night’s US TV programme Larry King Live that the rate of autism in northeastern Ohio, the largest Amish community in the USA with low rates of vaccination, was 1 in 10,000. He should know, he said: “I’m their neurologist.”

EPA knew pesticides were killing honeybees in the 1970s but punished those who spoke out

For decades, top officials at the Environmental Protection Agency (PEA) were aware that a compound approved for agricultural use in the United States was wiping out the honeybee population, but they chose to ignore the compound's effects in deference to pressure from agri-giant corporations.

Worse, the agency reacted harshly to anyone within the EPA who attempted to bring the issue to light, including through firings, forced reassignments and other actions.

According to a scholarly 2014 study [PDF] compiled by researcher Rosemary Mason, "on behalf of a global network of independent scientists, beekeepers and environmentalists," and published on the website of MIT, "We have found historical and chronological evidence to show that the herbicide glyphosate (or other herbicides that are used as alternatives) is responsible for the transformation of garden escapes into super-weeds (in the UK these are termed 'invasive species')."

Four Large Fireball Events over USA

Three of the events, 2306, 2307 & 2308 all occurred within 1.5 hours of each other. It is rare that multiple significant fireball events occur and are reported to the AMS in the same evening. After analysis of the time, proximity of witnesses and pointing data gathered, it was determined that each event was unique. It is likely that several of these fireball events were captured on camera by the NASA fireball network. Trajectories for all four events were plotted and are displayed below.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The recorded trajectories are inconsistent with de-orbiting space debris, so looks like some major rocks came down!

Vaccine wars: the censoring of Rob Schneider

Yesterday, I reported on State Farm dropping Rob Schneider from their TV ads because he’s alerted people to vaccine dangers.

Because he has a view about vaccines that departs from the norm.

“Punch a hole in consensus reality and you can’t be a spokesman for our products.”

“Cause a ripple among the sleeping populace and you’re out.”

What’s next?

Well, I’ll tell you what could be next, based on the fact that the Internet runs via an interlocking system of commercial companies.

Some companies that facilitate emails to large lists, and website hosts, to say nothing of Facebook, which is already censoring information, could decide, under pressure, or voluntarily, to close down “controversial data.”

Photos: Robots and drones - here's what Intel's answer to the Raspberry Pi can do

The maker movement is thriving – with hobbyist technologists across the world packing low-cost computers and sensors into bespoke electronics that fuse art and technology.

The market is dominated by single-board computers and microcontrollers such as Raspberry Pi and Arduino, but new competitors are arriving all the time.

Intel's entry is Edison, a tiny single-board computers, little bigger than a postage stamp, measuring just 3.55 x 2.5 x 0.39cm.

Although it will be compared with the $35 Raspberry Pi model B+, it is designed to work as an embedded Linux board for electronic prototypes and products, rather than as a small-board computer running a full-blown Linux distro.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love technology when it works, and am old enough that some of the newer advances keep me in awe when I remember what I started with. This new desktop I built easily outpaces the Cray Supercomputers of the 1980s. Of course, back when computers were slow, software had to be efficient, but I have observed that as processors got faster, software companies got lazy, writing bloated, inefficient code, relying on the advances in hardware to keep their products usable.

Outbreak of a Respiratory Illness Escalates Among Children and Mystifies Scientists

An outbreak of respiratory illness first observed in the Midwest has spread to 38 states, sending children to hospitals and baffling scientists trying to understand its virulent resurgence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know why they keep calling it a mystery virus when it has been identified as the enterovirus D68. And I wonder why it is getting so much press given that nobody has died from this virus, unlike the normal seasonal flu, which causes fatalities every year. There is an agenda at work here.

Obamacare Website Costs Top $2 Billion, Almost Triple Government Estimates

What's the opposite of government efficiency? In a double-take-instigating headline, the federal government’s Obamacare enrollment system has cost about $2.1 billion so far, according to a Bloomberg Government analysis of contracts related to the project. BGOV’s analysis shows that costs for both healthcare.gov and the broader reform effort are far greater than anything publicly discussed. However, that pales into insignificance when considering health reform has cost American taxpayers $73 billion in the last four years... and counting.

Accused: The US manufactured Ebola

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't agree with the idea that Ebola was created to attack anyone. In light of the recent scandals where vaccines for mumps, measles, and whooping cough actually triggered outbreaks of those diseases, I suspect that the lab at Kenama was testing an Ebola vaccine that like the above, used "attenuated" live virus, and someone goofed.
