Red Cross president: 'The Ebola crisis will grow' 'Threat of a global health catastrophe' is real, he says The head of the International Red Cross is warning that the Ebola crisis will likely only get worse with the real threat of a "global health catastrophe." “The Ebola crisis will grow," Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross, told Yahoo News Deutschland. "Until now, there is no vaccine on-site, and more and more people die.” The outbreak, which has already infected 8,997 people and killed 4,493 in West Africa, is an “epidemic of global dimension and global threat," Maurer said. "In a globalized world it is an illusion to think that such a disease can be contained locally," he continued. "Every local collapse of a system like we see now in Liberia includes the threat of a global health catastrophe. That’s what we risk.“ His comments echo those of Anthony Banbury, chief of the U.N.'s Ebola mission, who this week warned that if the global community does not step ...
My thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have suffered and are impacted by this terrible outbreak. A special debt of gratitude is owed to the health care professionals on the front line, both here in the United States and in West Africa, delivering care to the sick. I am increasingly concerned about the federal response to the Ebola outbreak. Several Americans have been infected with the virus, including two healthcare workers who were exposed while caring for a Liberian citizen carrying the disease. Given recent developments, the execution of the containment strategy and protocols must be revisited. Moreover, a single point of contact to coordinate the federal response and communicate with the American public is an immediate imperative. While the CDC, FDA and other governmental entities have critical roles to play in the unfolding developments and response, the Surgeon General of the United States is the logical choice to fill this much needed role for greater coordination and better communicati . ...
Obama open to appointing Ebola ‘tsar’, opposes travel ban: (WASHINGTON D.C, U.S.A) President Barack Obama said he was considering appointing an Ebola “tsar” to coordinate the fight against the virus in the United States, but he remained opposed to a ban on travel from West Africa. Obama’s administration is facing sharp criticism from lawmakers over its efforts to contain the disease at home. Obama authorized calling up military reservists for the U.S. fight against Ebola in West Africa on Thursday. U.S. concerns have intensified after two Texas nurses who cared for a dying Liberian patient contracted the virus that has killed nearly 4,500 people. Federal health officials said they were broadening their outreach to people who may have come into contact with one of the workers. Spain is also grappling with the spread of the disease, with four new patients with suspected Ebola symptoms admitted to hospitals. The disease continues to spread in West Africa where the outbreak began in March, and reach ...
Concerning the banning of flights to and from the infected countries in West Africa: The Obama administration refuses to countenance such a move, with the CDC’s Frieden flatly calling it “wrong”: "A travel ban is not the right answer. It’s simply not feasible to build a wall—virtual or real—around a community, city, or country. A travel ban would essentially quarantine the more than 22 million people that make up the combined populations of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. When a wildfire breaks out we don’t fence it off. We go in to extinguish it before one of the random sparks sets off another outbreak somewhere else. We don’t want to isolate parts of the world, or people who aren’t sick, because that’s going to drive patients with Ebola underground, making it infinitely more difficult to address the outbreak. . . . Importantly, isolating countries won’t keep Ebola contained and away from American shores. Paradoxically, it will increase the risk that Ebola will spread in those .. ...

"And so it is very important for us to understand that the investment we make in helping Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea deal with this problem is an investment in our own public health. This is not simply charity -- although obviously it's important that America takes the lead in the humanitarian crisis that's taking place there -- but it is also probably the single most important thing that we can do to prevent a more serious Ebola outbreak in this country is making sure that we get what is a raging epidemic right now in West Africa under control. So for that reason last night I had a call with Prime Minister Abe of Japan to solicit greater support for the international effort. This morning I spoke with Chancellor Merkel of Germany, Prime Minister Renzi of Italy, President Hollande of France, as well as David Cameron, the Prime Minister of Great Britain to make sure that we are coordinating our efforts and that we are putting in a lot more resources than, so far at least, the international community ha ...

The largest Ebola outbreak in history is being held responsible for sickening more than 6,500 people in West Africa and more than 3,000 deaths, according to the World Health Organization. But what is Ebola, and what are the risks?
The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the world's deadliest to date and the World Health Organization has declared an international health emergency. Doctors, dressed like astronauts, is an indicator to show the level of devastation and danger involved. It is very encouraging to see the whole world responding to curb the outbreak.
Dear Avaazers, Ebola could threaten us all, and the most urgent need to stop it is for volunteers. If just 120 doctors among us volunteer, it will *double* the number of doctors in Sierra Leone. Other volunteers - in health, sanitation, logistics - can help too. This is a call to serve humanity in the deepest possible way, to accept serious risk for our fellow human beings. Click to learn more, and show our gratitude to those making this powerful choice: Three weeks ago, hundreds of thousands of us went offline to fight climate change. This week, we're going offline to help stop Ebola. The Ebola virus is spiraling out of control. Cases in West Africa are doubling every 2-3 weeks and the latest estimate says that up to 1.4 million people could be infected by mid-January. At that scale, this monster threatens the entire world. Previous Ebola outbreaks have been repeatedly contained at small numbers. But the scale of this epidemic has swamped the region's weak health systems. Liberia has less than 1 doctor f ...

WHO Sounds The Alarm On Ebola: 'The Situation Is Deteriorating' While the US is panicking about three Ebola cases in one month, parts of West Africa are deteriorating rapidly, with little sign that the region is getting the outbreak under control. Ebola has hit Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone the hardest because these countries don't have healthcare systems that are equipped to handle the disease. Nurses at hospitals in these countries are "lightly trained and minimally protected" and Ebola patients are dying "surrounded by pools of infectious waste," according to a report in The New York Times. Some hospitals don't have access to running water, soap, and clean needles, which are all crucial to controlling and preventing further spread of disease. More than 4,000 people have died in this year's Ebola outbreak, and most of the deaths have occurred in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. These countries are seeing "widespread and persistent" transmission of Ebola, according to the latest report from the Wor ...
Time to share this: The following emergency report has been released by Dr. Debra Freeman, who is a public health doctor and also Lyndon LaRouche's spokesperson. There is reason for panic regarding the Ebole pandemic, but the response must be comprehensive - treated the same as a biological warfare attack, with full civilian/military mobilization internationally, with essentially no funding limits, to reverse the collapse of health care systems over decades. Please circulate this report widely.

Islam Blamed for Spread of Ebola Paul Sperry Islam isn’t just at the heart of the terror threat posed by the Islamic State. The religion is also contributing to the other major crisis plaguing the globe: the spread of Ebola. Washington and its media stenographers won’t tell you this, lest they look intolerant, but Islamic burial rituals are a key reason why health officials can’t contain the spread of the deadly disease in West Africa. Many of the victims of Ebola in the three hot-spot nations there — Sierra Leone and Guinea, as well as neighboring Liberia — are Muslim. Roughly 73% of Sierra Leone’s and about 85% of Guinea’s people are Muslim. Islam, moreover, is practiced by more than 13% of Liberians. When Muslims die, family members don’t turn to a funeral home or crematorium to take care of the body. In Islam, death is handled much differently. Relatives personally wash the corpses of loved ones from head to toe. Often, several family members participate in this posthumous bathing ritu ...
IMPORTANT!! PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THIS!!! USAMRID recommends the patient should be hospitalized in a private room with an adjoining anteroom to be used for donning and removing protective barriers, storage of supplies and decontamination of laboratory specimen containers. WND recently reported the World Health Organization, in a largely overlooked media advisory email, admitted there are some circumstances in which the current strain of Ebola in West Africa can be transmitted through coughing or sneezing. “Theoretically, wet and bigger droplets from a heavily infected individual, who has respiratory symptoms caused by other conditions or who vomits violently, could transmit the virus – over a short distance – to another nearby person,” the WHO Ebola situation assessment said. “This could happen when virus-laden heavy droplets are directly propelled, by coughing or sneezing (which does not mean airborne transmission) onto the mucus membranes or skin with cuts or abrasions of another person ...
Why call up a Guard/Reserve unit to head to West Africa instead of sending an active component Army or Navy unit?
Ebola update.this is kind of long but the situation warrants it. Each day upon arising I am greeted with news of yet another case of Ebola or an Ebola related medical error and each day at sunrise I can feel a growing panic in American society. It doesn’t matter that the flu kills more people than Ebola or that talk show hosts are capitalizing on the disease in order to raise ratings. The news and entertainment media has devoted all of their resources to getting the latest scoop on a disease in which there really isn’t much news in the United States. The real story likes in West Africa, that’s where they need medical help, supplies, money and facilities. If we can stop the disease there, we can keep it from getting a foothold here. Still another problem lies with the mass media. It used to be that news was easily distinguishable from opinion and sensationalistic talk but now the lines have blurred and the rushed average TV viewer accepts it all as news or fact (If you want the latest facts on the Da ...

I am deeply bothered by the way the media is creating fear around Ebola. It is a serious disease but the chances of catching it is remote. As Dr Frieden, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, stated recently, the odds of contracting Ebola in the United States is extremely low. If we are to be fearful, it should be for our brothers and sisters in West Africa where poverty and poor healthcare are creating significant challenges to containing the outbreak of Ebola. But actually Ebola isn't the major issue in Africa, far from it. Aids killed 1.2 million people in 2012, and a further 1.6 million contracted it. Or Malaria, which killed 564,000 people in Africa in 2012 (434,511 of them were under 5 years old). But as far as Ebola goes, here in America we have excellent healthcare systems and containment programs and we need to ignore the fear mongering by some news agencies. But also remember that Senate mid term elections are in a few weeks time and both Republicans and Democra ...
EBOLA OR EBO-LIE A statement made by a man in Ghana named Nana Kwame has rocked the internet in the last few days. The following information needs to reach people. We need to see Ebola for what it really is. It’s time that the world wakes up to the agenda behind all of this hysteria. Here is what this man has to say about what is happening in his home country: “People in the Western World need to know what’s happening here in West Africa. THEY ARE LYING!!! “Ebola” as a virus does NOT Exist and is NOT “Spread”. The Red Cross has brought a disease to 4 specific countries for 4 specific reasons and it is only contracted by those who receive treatments and injections from the Red Cross. That is why Liberians and Nigerians have begun kicking the Red Cross out of their countries and reporting in the news the truth. Reason 1: This vaccine implemented sickness being “called” Ebola was introduced into West Africa for the end goal of getting troops on the ground in Nigeria, Liberia, and Sierra ...
AMA President, BRIAN OWLER, says we should be sending medical teams to the crisis in West Africa | Hear more
Ok my last rant for the day. Because we have not banned oncoming flights from West Africa we have the following problems: the obvious increase of risk to Americans, including health care workers, the stock market is tanking, ( I am not a bank), the plane that the 2 nd nurse traveled on has been taken out of service. This will disrupt some flights , inconvenience many people and create unnecessary costs and concerns. WTH is wrong with this picture.
United Methodist Communications, Chocolate Moose Media and iheed have collaborated to produce an animated video for use in West Africa that helps dispel myths about how Ebola is spread and promotes prevention of the disease. The Olusegun Obasanjo Foundation is committed to spreading more information about the current West African Ebola outbreak and would like to invite you to watch the video below and share it to your friends!
Since we are not prepared for Ebola, I believe we should temporarily restrict travel from the Ebola-ravaged countries. The only two people that have the authorization to restrict travel from West Africa are Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Secretary of Health & Human Services (HHS) and President Obama himself. The CDC can only recommend things, but has no authority.

People are getting Ebola in West African countries, and in the US. There is a lot less water and distance between West Africa and Southern Europe than there is between West Africa and the US. How many people are getting sick in Spain, France, Italy? None? Why not?
People in West Africa have managed to limit Ebola's spread on the continent to five countries - and two of them appear to have snuffed out the disease. The developments constitute a modest success in an otherwise bleak situation. West African officials credit tighter border control as the best weapon against Ebola.
Questions and Answers about Ebola and Pets The ongoing epidemic of Ebola in West Africa has raised several questions about how the disease affects the animal population, and in particular, the risk to household pets. While the information available suggests that the virus may be found in several kinds of animals, CDC, the US Department of Agriculture, and the American Veterinary Medical Association do not believe that pets are at significant risk for Ebola in the United States . How are animals involved in Ebola outbreaks? Because the natural reservoir host of Ebola has not yet been confirmed, the way in which the virus first appears in a human at the start of an outbreak is unknown. However, scientists believe that the first patient becomes infected through contact with an infected animal, such as a fruit bat or primate (apes and monkeys), which is called a spillover event. Person-to-person transmission follows and can lead to large numbers of affected persons. In some past Ebola outbreaks, primates were ...
Ancient African terracotta portraits 1000 B.C. to 500 B.C Recent discoveries in the field of linguistics and other methods have shown without a doubt, that the ancient Olmecs of Mexico, known as the Xi People, came originally from West Africa and were of the Mende African ethnic stock. According to Clyde A. Winters and other writers (see Clyde A. Winters website), the Mende script was discovered on some of the ancient Olmec monuments of Mexico and were found to be identical to the very same script used by the Mende people of West Africa. Although the carbon fourteen testing date for the presence of the Black Olmecs or Xi People is about 1500 B.C., journies to the Mexico and the Southern United States may have come from West Africa much earlier, particularly around five thousand years before Christ. That conclusion is based on the finding of an African native cotton that was discovered in North America. It's only possible manner of arriving where it was found had to have been through human hands. At that p ...

Schools have shut down, elections have been postponed, mining and logging companies have withdrawn, farmers have abandoned their fields. "The Ebola virus ravaging West Africa has renewed the risk of political instability in a region barely recovering from civil war", United Nations officials said Tuesday, hours after the World Health Organization reported that new cases could reach 10,000 a week by December — 10 times the current rate. The head of the new Ebola Emergency Response Mission, Anthony Banbury, told the Security Council that none of the three most heavily affected countries — Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea — is adequately prepared. Only 4,300 treatment beds will be available by Dec. 1, according to current projections, and even those would not have an adequate number of staff members. The acceleration of new cases, if not curbed, could easily overwhelm them. Mr. Banbury painted a picture of substantial need. Only 50 safe-burial teams are on the ground, he said, but 500 are required. The ...
How is Ebola spread? It is spread through close contact with blood and other bodily fluids. The virus is not spread through the air; simply being in close proximity to someone (in an airplane, for example) is not enough to put you at risk. Five American aid workers – three physicians, a nurse and a cameraman hired by NBC News - were infected while working in West Africa. What exactly was that cameraman doing if it can only be contracted through blood and other bodily fluids.

EBOLA, EBOLA, Where art thou my Ebola? So Ebola is this virus in West Africa that has a 70 to 90% (depending on who you talk to) kill rate. Ebola ranges from highly contagious to not that contagious according to many experts, but the empirical evidence proves otherwise – its actually highly contagious and I’ll get back to that. One thing is for certain, there is no known cure for this virus and it is deadly. Basically, you have to ‘ride it out,’ and hope like *** your body develops the necessary anti-bodies to survive or you’re going to die. When someone does survive, which is rare, they can try give that person’s blood to an infected person (if the blood type is the same of course) through a transfusion to transfer the anti-bodies. Otherwise, there is no cure… Mmm. Guess all countries around the world would want to ban flights from West African then, right? Wrong. The USA, in its infinite wisdom under the fledging, pro-Muslim leadership of Barack Hussein Obama, has decided that banning fl . ...
US health officials are seeking 132 people who flew on a plane with a Texas nurse on the day before she came down with symptoms of Ebola. The second person infected in the US, Amber Vinson, 29, fell ill on Tuesday. Both she and nurse Nina Pham, 26, had treated Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan, who died on 8 October, in Dallas. Nurses' union officials have said those treating Duncan were not given full protection and had parts of their skin exposed Meanwhile, the UN's Ebola mission chief says the world is falling behind in the race to contain the virus, which has killed more than 4,000 in West Africa. On Wednesday, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said it wanted to interview the passengers on Frontier Airlines flight 1143 from Cleveland, Ohio, to Dallas, Texas on 13 October. It said it was taking the measure "because of the proximity in time between the evening flight and first report of illness the following morning".

"If even modest investments had been made to build a public health infrastructure in West Africa previously, the current Ebola epidemic could have been detected earlier, and it could have been identified and contained." Or you could ask NIH Director Francis Collins... "NIH has been working on Ebola vaccines since 2001. It's not like we suddenly woke up and thought, 'Oh my gosh, we should have something ready here.' Frankly, if we had not gone through our 10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would've gone through clinical trials and would have been ready." Clearly, these budget cuts have stymied the U.S.'s response to the cri ...

The African Screaming Eagle Virus This is a re-post from September 30, 2014 after The Washington Times announced that the 101st Airborne was being deployed to fight Ebola in West Africa.

I have watched every White House daily press briefing, and have studied the president in depth. He has a pattern of saying things to misdirect those he considers to be enemies.

About a week ago, I read an article published in the Internet news summary publication of the Friends of Liberia that said that there was an agreement that the initiation of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was due to the contact of a two-year old child with bats that had flown in from the Congo. That report made me disconcerted with the reporting about Ebola, and it stimulated a response to the “Friends of Liberia,” saying that African people are not ignorant and gullible, as is being implicated.

A poignant account of the ripple effect the epidemic is having on lives in West Africa via…
New Ebola update. American health officials promise Ebola will never become an epidemic in the United States. But it could end up a national scourge in another way: by forcing up the price of chocolate. The two largest producers of cocoa beans—the magic ingredient that makes chocolate chocolate—are Ivory Coast (also known as Côte d’Ivoire) and Ghana, which combined provide about 60% of the world's supply. Neither country is suffering an Ebola outbreak, but they’re in the same part of West Africa that includes Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, which are basically ground zero for the killer virus that has claimed more than 4,000 lives so far. Nigeria, which accounts for another 6% of the world’s cocoa beans, has had roughly two dozen confirmed cases of Ebola inside its borders.

Stop Ebola at its source. Suspend common carrier flights ( not charter flights ) to US airports from West Africa. When a single Hamas missile landed within a mile of Ben Gurion Airport, President Obama ordered all US airlines to suspend service to Israel to protect US citizens. Don't we need protection from a killer virus the President said will never reach America?
Ebola: How To Protect Yourself From Virus Most of ebola's 4,300 victims have come from West Africa, however, British experts say the UK must also be prepared. Here are a number of ways people can help protect themselves from contracting the virus. :: Hygiene is extremely important. Wash your hands frequently or use an alcohol-based sanitiser :: Keep hands away from the face :: Avoid contact with the blood and body fluids of anyone, especially someone who is sick, as it is through these fluids, such as vomit, blood and saliva that ebola is passed on :: Avoid handling items that have been touched by that person or any of their body fluids :: Do not touch the body of someone who has died from ebola. :: The World Health Organisation says any areas that person may have had contact with, such as bed linen, should be disinfected :: Do not touch bats and non-human primates or their blood and fluids, and do not eat raw meat prepared from these animals :: Avoid travelling to countries where ebola is rife, such as L ...
UPDATE: Ebola Patient Zero now identified as Thomas Eric Duncan. The Ebola outbreak is raging throughout West Africa. Now, for the first time, a case of Ebola made it’s way back to the states without anyone catching it first. The Duncan is currently under a quarantine in a Dallas hospital, and the CDC is reacting to the news.
Health Ministry: Poland 'ready for Ebola' - 14.10.2014 - Poland's deputy health minister says the country is ready to treat Ebola patients coming in from abroad, as the EU prepares to discuss possible screening for the virus at borders. (Photo top: Especially prepared equipment has been added to a ward at the Hospital for Infectious Diseases in Warsaw in preparation for Ebola case.) Minister Igor Radziewicz-Winnicki told Polish Radio that “if a patient with Ebola were to get to Poland, all the responses will take place in accordance with procedures guaranteeing safety.” Poland's Ministry of Foreign Affairs estimates that there are around 220 Poles resident in countries in West Africa where the threat from Ebola is greatest. There are around 200 Poles working in three missions in Nigeria, five Polish missionaries in Sierra Leone, and four with the UN peacekeeping mission in Liberia, says a ministry statement. The Health Ministry has been in discussion with ten hospitals which are being suitably prepare ...
Okay, ebola ... I'll finally tap on this issue since it's a topic that seems to be permeating every social outlet. Years ago, when I first heard of it, some information was circulated that has since been proven to be untrue. Seeing articles now repeating this incredibly outdated and inaccurate information for the purpose of sensationalism and driving traffic to websites and media publishers is downright shameful. The virus lives in bodily fluids as long as the fluids are moist and within a normal habitable temperature range for mammals. It is not airborne (outside of droplets, obviously, even when the host is deceased). It's been around for at least a couple decades, and if it was the population killer it is being painted out to be, it would have already decimated entire countries in West Africa. It's a badass killer contagion, no doubt, but it's nothing new in the history of the world (black plague, yellow fever, and a slew of other known fatal epidemics). Do not believe the hype. Don't think that becaus ...
Dear Supreme Leader Obama, what reason on earth are you not suspending visas from West Africa? Are you aware there is a Ebola epidemic raging there? I understand there is NO United States boarder you would ever close, but when a healthcare worker in full body suit now has Ebola well one starts to think! Dr. Thomas Frieden, head of the CDC, sounds much like Susan Rice telling us a movie killed our people in Benghazi! Frieden sounds much like Baghdad Bob! I got news for you, your ISIS coalition hasn't stopped their advancement either! *** you promised the greatest transparency in the history of the White House. Don't *** on me & tell me it's raining. There isn't a smart person in the country that believes you anymore! We are adults, WE CAN HANDLE THE TRUTH!!! .can you tell it?
LASG REPORTS 84 PERCENT THIRD QUARTER BUDGET PERFORMANCE, 86 PERCENT CUMULATIVE THREE-QUARTER PERFORMANCE “We will continue to focus on activities that create economic opportunities”, says Governor Fashola The Lagos State Government Friday returned an 84 percent third quarter Budget performance for the 2014 Budget with an 86 percent cumulative or aggregated performance for the first three quarters of the year covering from January to September. Against the backdrop of the very high targets set for itself, the cumulative performance, according to the State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola SAN, still falls short of Government expectation. He noted, however, that even at that it was, “a tough act to follow”. Briefing newsmen at the Lagos House after the Third Quarter Review of the Budget, Governor Fashola said even if the administration is not where it wants to be yet, by many measures the performance is a tough act to follow in West Africa, if not the whole of Africa, adding that the manifestations o ...

ourafrica: There were many other Kingdoms in Africa, not just the Kingdom of Egypt, that are worthy of praise and honour. Indeed, Egypt played a great role in civilization, but it was only one of many on the continent. Below are few of the many greats: While Europe was experiencing its Dark Ages, a period of intellectual, cultural and economic regression from the sixth to the 13th centuries, Africans were experiencing an almost continent-wide renaissance after the decline of the Nile Valley civilizations of Egypt and Nubia. The leading civilizations of this African rebirth were the Axum Empire, the Kingdom of Ghana, the Mali Empire, the Songhai Empire, the Ethiopian Empire, the Mossi Kingdoms and the Benin Empire. Axum Empire The Aksum or Axum Empire was an important military power and trading nation in the area that is now Eritrea and northern Ethiopia, existing from approximately 100 to 940 A.D. At its height, it was one of only four major international superpowers of its day along with Persia, Rome an ...

International divisions: Cuba leads fight against Ebola in Africa as west frets about border security
On Monday, America’s government offices, businesses, and banks all grind to a halt in order to commemorate Columbus Day. In schools up and down the country, little children are taught that a heroic Italian explorer discovered America, and various events and parades are held to celebrate the occasion. BYA RADIO FREE BUGANDA KU LWOKUSOOKA NGA, 13 OCTOBER 2014 KU SSAAWA 15:17 It has now become common knowledge amongst academics that Christopher Columbus clearly did not discover America, not least because is it impossible to discover a people and a continent that was already there and thriving with culture. One can only wonder how Columbus could have discovered America when people were watching him from America’s shores? Contrary to popular belief, African American history did not start with slavery in the New World. An overwhelming body of new evidence is emerging which proves that Africans had frequently sailed across the Atlantic to the Americas, thousands of years before Columbus and indeed before Ch ...

My speech on the occassion of the 52nd Independence Anniversary celebrations It is with great pleasure and honour that I welcome Your Excellencies and all the distinguished guests to this occasion as we mark 52 years of Uganda's independence. I greet you and congratulate you on the 52nd anniversary of Uganda's Independence. As we celebrate this day, the whole of Uganda is peaceful and has been so since we ended the removal of the 40,000 rifles from the cattle-rustlers in Karamoja some six (6) years ago. Earlier on, in 2005, we had defeated the terrorists of Kony. This is therefore, the first time in 114 years that the whole of Uganda has been peaceful. Even, during the time of the British, cattle-rustling in Karamoja, using guns from Turkana and from Ethiopia, was going on. On account of the strength of the UPDF and the growing strength of the Police Force, this peace will not be disturbed. Use this peace to create wealth for your families as we have guided you before.

Using tradition and philosophy to destroy faith in the Bible. Urging people to move independently of the main body of the church.

Timeline for OvaHerero reparations Staff Reporter Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 08:00 News The Paramount Chief of the Ovaherero, Advocate Vekuii Rukoro has set 2 October 2015 as deadline for a tripartite agreement to be concluded between the Ovaherero, German and Namibian Governments with regard to the Ovaherero plight for reparations. Rukoro set the timeline during his mini-maiden address at the Ovaherero Commando Hall in Katutura last week (2 October) to coincide with the 104th commemoration of the extermination order by General Lotha von Trotha, who, on behalf of the German Empire, ordered the German colonial troops in the then South West Africa “to kill all Hereros, spare no soul and take no prisoners.” The order was given on 2 October 1908, at Ozombuzovindimba, 20km north-east of Otjinene village, after a four year campaign that started in 1904. The newly-installed Paramount Chief allayed the fears of the descendants of the colonialists that the progenies of the Ovaherero harbour no evil to Germans ...
U.S. MILITARY FACES NEW KIND OF THREAT WITH EBOLA "At Fort Campbell in Kentucky, spouses of U.S. soldiers headed to Liberia seem to be lingering just a bit longer than usual after pre-deployment briefings, hungry for information about Ebola. For these families, the virus is raising a different kind of anxiety than the one they have weathered during 13 years of ground war in Afghanistan and Iraq. They want to know how the military can keep soldiers safe from the epidemic, a new addition to the Army's long list of threats. "Ebola is a different problem set that the division hasn't (faced) before," said Major General Gary Volesky, who will soon head to Liberia along with soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division. There are already more than 350 U.S. troops on the ground in West Africa, mostly in Liberia, including a handful from the 101st. That number is set to grow exponentially in the coming weeks as the military races to expand Liberia's infrastructure so it can battle Ebola. The military has already stoo ...
So at Hospital and a report about Ebola comes on.

Because next question is going to be do I think the Nurse has Ebola?

'Why do so many liberals despise Christianity?' Robert George is a Princeton professor with a law degree from Harvard and a Ph.D. from Oxford.

OK, for those of you who have been pestering me about ebola (and you know who you are) here are some tidbits to help you know more. Ebola virus causes an acute, serious illness which is often fatal IF UNTREATED. Ebola virus disease (EVD) first appeared in 1976 in 2 simultaneous outbreaks in Africa. In a a village near the Ebola River. The current outbreak in west Africa, (first cases notified in March 2014), is the largest and most complex Ebola outbreak since the Ebola virus was first discovered in 1976. There have been more cases and deaths in this outbreak than all others combined. to be continued...
4,000 people die of the Ebola virus in West Africa, but it's such a funny thing to joke about because it isn't affecting the nice white middle-class at home.
A disease all of a sudden showed up from nowhere which some shortsighted foreign laboratory scientists claimed bats, bushmeats and monkeys are the primary hosts which they wholly declared deadly. Where was it seen? Africa of course. A disease that only becomes deadly in it's last stages all of a sudden took nearly over 4,000 people just in west africa alone. When Africa beckoned for help for the drugs what did they get? "...the drugs hasn't been fully cleared to take away the virus from the victim with a zero hypersensitivity tendencies which could cause death in most case..." Another Afro-Canadian doctor came up with a drug which could almost do the samething and it was declared not fit for treatment without any stipulated laboratory parameter. But two American health workers who had contracted the virus in Liberia was sent back to United States and the drug, which was said wasn't fully cleared to take away the virus, was administered to them and they became well. But send the drug to Africa they refused ...
Obama tells the West Africa people, in a video, that you can't get Ebola by sitting next to someone on a bus and at the same time the CDC warns Americans travelling to these places not to use Public Transportation...Obama really is drowning in a sea of intellectual uncertainty.
unlimited calling, voip, phone service
Obama told Americans and Liberians you cannot get Ebola by riding on a bus. The CDC disagrees. And it also shows a complete lack of understanding. Liberians do not get to hop around in a helicopter. They do not get to ride in their own seat on a bus. The buses and taxis are literally packed, with strangers sitting on your lap. The markets are filthy and wall to wall people. It is nothing like the US. Which is why they MUST have our help. I applaud Obama for sending some of our military. Yes, they are in danger, but if West Africa collapses, ebola will wipe out hundreds of thousands and it will no doubt spread to other countries and continents. These West African countries are on the brink of total economic collapse. It is in our interest to help them with food, security, and medical assistance. If we don't the consequences could be catastrophic.
Liberals like to blame Columbus and the explorers that followed for the outbreak of disease among "indigenous peoples" of the New World. But wait!

So long as an individual's temperature does not exceed 101.5 degrees and there are no visible…
And so it begins...we are now politicizing Ebola as we did HIV.Grow up America.Closing the borders won't keep out a virus.It is not just passengers from West Africa that would have to be quarantined...people don't just fly direct from there...they go to Europe,Aisa ...do business there then come over.logistically impossible...what we can do is with proper education and sound reasonable precaution...limit the damage.Oh yeah.blame Obama for your next fever if it makes you feel better...unbelievable how stupid this country's populace has become.

The world’s going crazy!  Have you noticed?  In all my life I have never seen the world in this kind of mess: from war in Ukraine to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa (scientists are warning that the Ebola virus is likely to reach Europe and Britain in the next three weeks).  Cold war tensions are rising between Russia and the West; there’s civil war in Syria; simmering tensions continue between Palestine and Israel, Pakistan and India, North and South Korea and China & Japan; and, probably the most concerning of all, is the rise of Islamic State.

LIBERIAN MEDICAL WORKERS THREATEN STRIKE: Medical workers in Liberia are set to go on strike over a pay dispute, a move that could deliver a serious blow to the fight against the deadly Ebola virus. Thousands of members of Liberia's National Health Workers Association said they will not report for work on today 13/10/2014 unless they receive a substantial increase in hazard pay. Members of the association are demanding $700 in monthly hazard pay on top of monthly salaries that are around $200 or $300. Liberia has the highest number of infections and deaths in the worst outbreak of the illness. Ebola has killed more than 2,300 people in the poor West African nation. na wa oh.but the gap between the pay of health workers in the West/Middle East and West Africa is too wide. inukwa 200-300 dollars per month. smh!

Ebola Free Southern Africa; It seems Ebola has become the disease that dare not speak it’s name, with many within the tourism industry ‘doing like an Ostrich’ and burying their heads in the sand. Alas, it’s real, and touches the very core of our primeval anxieties. I’m not the religious type, but if I had to pray, it would be for those individuals, their families and the countries affected by it. Presently Ebola affects just 5 counties of 54 in Africa, namely Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, DRC and Nigeria, with experts saying it is under control in Nigeria and DRC. For the remaining 3, the effect on lives and livings has been truly devastating. I write this from Windhoek, in southwest Africa, 4,685km away from the epicenter of the Ebola outbreak, London by comparison is 4,953km away, thus making much of Western Europe, and even Brazil, closer to the affected areas than ourselves. There are no direct rail, road or river networks connecting Namibia to West Africa, nor are there any direct flig ...

This is why I don't consider my concern about Ebola to be "silly."The ominous math of the Ebola epidemic The Washington Post 3 hrs ago © Provided by Washington Post When the experts describe the Ebola disaster, they do so with numbers. The statistics include not just the obvious ones such as caseloads, deaths and the rate of infection, but also the ones that describe the speed of the global response. Right now, the math still favors the virus. Global health officials are looking closely at the “reproduction number,” which estimates how many people, on average, will catch the virus from each person stricken with Ebola. The epidemic will begin to decline when that number falls below one. A recent analysis estimated the number 1.5 to two. Ebola cases in West Africa have been doubling about every three weeks, and no data suggests a major change in that trendline. “The speed at which things are moving on the ground, it’s hard for people to get their minds around. People don’t understand the concept ...

*** 150 People from EBOLA countries land in the U.S.A. every day. Deadliest outbreak of Ebola virus: What you need to know. The deadliest outbreak of Ebola virus on record has sparked fears that the killer virus could spread from West Africa to other regions and continents. The outbreak began with just a handful of cases in March. Since then, that number has grown to 14,909 confirmed cases and another 20,414 probable cases , according to the World Health Organization. Some 4,729 people have died. 10 country's have cut off all transportation from Ebola areas. . "This epidemic is without precedent," said Bart Janssens, director of operations for Médecins Sans Frontières, also known as Doctors Without Borders. "It's absolutely not under control, and the situation keeps worsening. ... There are many places where people are infected but we don't know about it." Because it takes between two and 21 days before Ebola symptoms to show, there's little health officials can do to stop an asymptomatic pers ...
The current assumption is that for every four known Ebola cases, about six more go unreported. The latest World Health Organization statistics, published Wednesday, show 8,033 cases of suspected or confirmed Ebola in the West Africa outbreak, with 3,865 deaths. That figure does not include the death Wednesday of Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who died in Dallas.

MY STATEMENT VIA VIDEOLINK TO THE UN HIGH LEVEL MEETING ON RESPONSE TO EBOLA VIRUS DISEASE OUTBREAK THURSDAY 25 SEPTEMBER, 2014 Excellencies and other distinguished delegates, My country Sierra Leone is at the battlefront of one of the biggest life and death challenges facing the global human community. A disease like Ebola could no longer be dealt with in isolation by just one isolated country in one isolated corner of the world. Viral diseases are no respecters of boundaries in a world of expanding human habitats bringing us into greater contact with mutating viruses. Ebola is not only a disease of Sierra Leone and its neighbors; it is a disease of the world. Globalization, increasing urbanization and denser networks of people rapidly moving between rural and urban areas and across borders is fuel for greater transmission of formerly isolated viral diseases. None of us recognized that this mix of trends could emerge with such force in West Africa. Our international partners were slow to recognize the .. ...
EbolaNews: Spain: Ebola Infection in Spain Might Be Human Error. The Spanish nursing aide infected with Ebola believes she might have caught the virus by touching her face with a gloved hand after treating a missionary brought here from Sierra Leone, a doctor said Wednesday. “That’s what she recalls and what she has told me three times,” Germán Ramírez Olivencia said at a news conference, offering the first possible explanation of how Ebola spread for the first time beyond West Africa. “It appears that we’ve found the origin.” Since the contagion was reported on Monday, other medical workers have complained about flawed protective gear they wore while treating the Spanish missionary, who died Sept. 25. (Latest: Condition of Spanish worker with Ebola worsens). Dr. Ramírez’s finding, if confirmed as the cause of contagion, would shift the blame to human error—and alleviate some of the concern for other governments that rely on standardized Ebola protocols as they treat infected patients b ...
When you have the first Ebola patients die in Europe - Spain, USA, hospitalization in the UK and Germany; the USA sending 3,000 troops and UK following suit with 750 troops to West Africa to combat Ebola; not forgetting the 'convoy treatment' that the Western patients are conveyed from the Airports to hospitals; the quarantines, the enhanced checks at airports now in the US and UK; the IMF, West Africa and World Leaders meetings on this epidemic, the sending of Doctors by Cuba, the West and some Sub-Saharan countries to Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone; it is time SADC took strategic steps in joining the World before this scourge wipes us out the way we got and are still threatened with AIDS. The usual song of 'no funds' is pathetic; especially when we can afford foreign trips and cashgate.

Predicting the Nobel Peace Prize: "It is that time of the year again: the winners of the Nobel Prize are being announced, over there in Scandinavia. The most prestigious one, weirdly, is the Peace Prize, and I am now ready to announce my predictions for that most fascinating of prizes. "The most obvious candidate this year is the World Health Organization, for failing to prevent or control the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa. Its claim to the prize is strong: much like the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons won it last year after the Syrian Assad regime used chemical weapons against its own population, it has been prominently in the news for not accomplishing its goals. "But there are other serious contenders: President Obama, for example, for ending the war in Iraq, especially now that he has not won the Nobel Prize in Literature for his series of autobiographies, Russian president Vladimir Putin, for bringing stability to Syria and Ukraine, or Pope Francis, for sounding more liberal t ...

Uganda Timeline -- Part 1: Prehistory to the Road to Independence A Chronology of Key Events in Uganda By Alistair Boddy-Evans, About.com 21 million BCE Morotopithecus bishopi, a fossil ape discovered in Moroto, Uganda in 1963 by Walter William Bishop and his team, is dated to around 20.6 million years ago (Miocene epoch). It comes form the same time that gibbons split off from the rest of the great apes. A new description of Morotopithecus bishopi was published by Daniel Gebo, Laura MacLatchy, et al. in 1997, claiming it showed the earliest traces of modern hominoid skeletal features (walking upright). 20 million BCE Ugandapithecus major, previously known as Proconsul major, a fossil hominid primate which inhabited the region at the same time as Proconsul.

DR. THOMAS SOWELL’S ARTICLE RAISES QUESTIONS ABOUT OBAMA’S LOYALTIES, I CAN OFFER SOME ASSISTANCE HERE In an article published, yesterday, by Thomas Sowell, the conservative scholar questioned President Barack Obama’s loyalties to this country. The article, titled, “Ebola and Obama,” cited the fact that, whereas nations such as France, and Britain, have restricted travel from nations where there has been an outbreak of the Ebola disease, President Obama has not only not done so, but sent 3,000 American soldiers to Liberia, one of the three West African countries where this disease is most virulent. Putting troops in harm’s way, clearly, has taken on a new dimension. I have my own explanation as to why the two events have transpired, but I will bow to Sowell’s superior wisdom, until we get to the end of this narrative. Offering a reason for Obama’s decision-making, in this case, Dr. Sowell offered the following explanation: “Refusing to let people with Ebola enter the United States would ...

News on Ebola from Liberia * Liberia is one of the worst hit countries in the worldwide Ebola outbreak. Friends of the Earth Liberia has been distributing life saving Ebola Prevention Kits. The virus – which has already killed more than 3,000 people – is spreading through West Africa at an alarming rate. It has no proven cure yet although it’s not airborne like the flu virus (thank God for that). "Following straightforward hygiene and safety measures can stop it from spreading". “The death rate rises daily, killing more and more people including health workers. Medical centres are turning away the sick. Hospitals continue to reject patients who show signs and symptoms similar to the virus. Those who recover from the disease are often rejected by their communities and families. "I have lost 5 friends from the medical field. My attention has now shifted to support local rural communities' prevention efforts.” Nora Bowier, Friends of the Earth Liberia.
