Ebola is one of the world’s most deadly diseases. It is a highly infectious virus that can kill up to 90 percent of the people who catch it, causing terror among infected communities. Ebola is so infectious that patients need to be treated in isolation by staff wearing protective clothing. Since the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was officially declared on 22nd March in Guinea, it has claimed 5,420 lives in the region. The outbreak is the largest ever, and is currently affecting four countries in West Africa: Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Mali. One person in Spain and three people in the USA have recovered; one person in the USA has died. Outbreaks in Nigeria and Senegal have been declared over. A separate outbreak in Democratic Republic of Congo has also ended

Liberia /laɪˈbɪəriə/, officially the Republic of Liberia, is a country in West Africa bordered by Sierra Leone to its west, Guinea to its north and Ivory Coast to its east. It covers an area of 111,369 square kilometres (43,000 sq mi) and is home to about 4 million people. English is the official language and over thirty indigenous languages are also spoken within the country. Its coastline is composed mostly of mangroves, while its more sparsely populated inland consists of forests opening onto a plateau of drier grasslands. The climate is hot and equatorial, with significant rainfall during the May–October rainy season and harsh harmattan winds the remainder of the year. The country possesses about forty percent of the remaining Upper Guinean rainforest. Liberia is the only country in Africa founded by United States colonization while occupied by native Africans. Beginning in 1820, the region was colonized by African Americans, most of whom were freed slaves. The colonists established a new coun ...

"You cannot carry out fundamental change without a certain amount of madness. In this case, it comes from non-conformity, the courage to turn your back on the old formulas, the courage to invent the future. It took the madmen of yesterday for us to be able to act with extreme clarity today. I want to be one of those madmen. We must dare to invent the future."

ECOWAS Pays Solidarity Visit, Commits Additional 1 Million And 131 Medical Personnel For Ebola Response MONROVIA, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2014: The President of the ECOWAS Commission H.E. Kadré Désiré Ouedraogo on Tuesday November 18, 2014 paid a one day solidarity visit to Liberia and committed an additional one million United States Dollar to the Government of Liberia for the Ebola fight.

The ECOWAS President was accompanied by Dr. Mohamed Ibn Chambas Special Representative of the UN-Secretary General for West Africa. During the solidarity visit, the officials held productive discussions with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf at which time they hailed efforts of Liberia in the fight against Ebola, the meeting with President Sir ...

Opposition party says govt playing politics with Boko Haram 2014-11-19 16:05 Abuja - Nigeria's main opposition party on Wednesday accused the government of playing politics with Boko Haram, as it held its first major election rally. "The PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) is sacrificing the lives of our brothers, of our sisters, of our children for very selfish political ends," said the All Progressives Congress national chairman, John Oyegun. Oyegun questioned why the military, West Africa's largest, had failed to stop the Islamist insurgency and claimed it was because the three worst-affected states were all APC strongholds. "They (the PDP) have allowed the insurgents to take over substantially controlled APC states," he told the rally in the capital, Abuja. The PDP has never been out of power in Nigeria since the country returned to civilian rule in 1999 and is widely expected to win the next election, which takes place in February next year.

Nigeria counting on Bafana favour . . South Africa have already secured a place in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations finals, but they head into their final Group A qualifier away to Nigeria on Wednesday evening with a unique opportunity to eliminate the reigning continental champions. Kick-off at the Akwa Ibom Stadium in the south- eastern city of Uyo is set for 7pm CAT(GMT+2). Having beaten Sudan 2-1 in Durban on Saturday – thanks to goals from Thulani Serero and Tokelo Rantie – Bafana Bafana have booked a ticket to the 2015 Afcon and will also finish top of the qualifying group regardless of their result in West Africa. However, with Nigeria placed second in the group and level on points with Congo (who are away to bottom-of- the-log Sudan), there is an opportunity for Shakes Mashaba’s team to eliminate the Super Eagles from the competition before it even kicks off in Equatorial Guinea in January. Simply avoiding defeat should do the trick, provided Congo can beat Sudan in Khartoum. This would then s ...

The Duke of Cambridge speaks of his concern over the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, and expresses his admiration for healthcare workers who have travelled to disease hit areas to help people. Shot quickly in an office at Kensington Palace, in this video The Duke mentions "Ebola is Real", a video by a small group of local filmmakers called Future View based in Sierra Leone and supported here in the UK by Purple Field Productions. The Duke is following developments closely and became aware of the video, which offers practical advice and information on the precautions people can take to avoid getting and spreading the disease. HRH was keen to show his support for this local initiative and recorded a message to help promote the video, as part of the social information campaign that is taking place in West Africa.

India quarantines man recovering from Ebola India has quarantined a man who was cured of Ebola in Liberia but continued to show traces of the virus in samples of his semen after arriving in the country, the Health Ministry said on Tuesday. The ministry said in a statement that the Indian national had been shown to be negative for Ebola in tests conforming to World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines, but had been quarantined as a precautionary measure when he arrived at New Delhi airport on Nov. 10. Later, tests of his semen detected traces of the virus. "It is a known fact that, during convalescence from Ebola Virus Disease, persons continue to shed virus in bodily fluids for variable periods," the ministry said. "However, presence of virus in his semen samples may have the possibility of transmitting the disease through sexual route up to 90 days from time of clinical cure." India has screened thousands of passengers travelling from Ebola-hit West Africa in recent weeks. The Indian man carried with him ...

Ebola outbreak: Sierra Leone doctor dies in US A surgeon from Sierra Leone who was being treated for Ebola in the US has died, a Nebraska hospital announced. Martin Salia, who has US residency and is married to an American, arrived for treatment in the state on Saturday, in a critical condition. And on Monday morning the hospital said the 44-year-old had died. More than 5,000 people have died in the current Ebola outbreak - almost all of them in West Africa. Dr Salia is the second person to die in the US. Liberian national Thomas Eric Duncan died in Dallas last month after contracting the virus in Monrovia. The national state of emergency in Liberia ended last week and on Sunday, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said she hoped the country would be free of the virus by Christmas. Dr Salia was in a critical condition when he arrived at the hospital in Omaha, Nebraska, unable to walk. "We are extremely sorry to announce that the third patient we've cared for with the Ebola virus, Dr Martin Salia, has passed a ...

WORLD PREMATURITY DAY 2014 17 November 2014 – Marking the fourth World Prematurity Day, the United Nations has underscored that the complications of preterm birth outrank all other causes as the world’s number one killer of young children. “On World Prematurity Day, I urge all partners to recognize the vital importance of addressing prematurity as we strive to improve women’s and children’s health,” said Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in remarks on the Day. “Intensifying our focus on prematurity will sustain gains in child survival, accelerate progress towards the Millennium Development Goals [MDGs], and help lay the groundwork for ending all preventable deaths of women and children by 2030,” he added. World Prematurity Day is part of the Secretary-General’s Every Woman Every Child initiative, which was created to advance the Millennium Goals 4 and 5, to reduce under-five child and maternal mortality by two thirds and three fourths, respectively. The movement, which was launched four year ...

Man who died from Ebola endured treatment delays OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A surgeon who contracted Ebola in his native Sierra Leone did not receive aggressive treatment until nearly two weeks after he first started showing symptoms - a delay that doctors said probably made it impossible for anyone to save his life. Dr. Martin Salia was in the 13th day of his illness when he reached Omaha on Saturday. He had waited three days to be formally diagnosed after an initial test for Ebola came back negative. He then waited five more days to be flown to the United States. By the time the 44-year-old Maryland man got to the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, the deadly virus had done too much damage, shutting down Salia's kidneys and making breathing difficult, doctors said. He died Monday. "In the very advanced stages, even the modern techniques we have at our disposal are not enough to help these patients once they reach a critical threshold," said Dr. Jeffrey Gold, chancellor of the medical center. The vi ...

On the religious front, Nigeria has become pathetically polarized under the Jonathan regime since 2010. It is not uncommon that major Policies are gleaned from the statements of the President in his religious pilgrimages to churches. The Christian Association Nigeria (CAN), with its leadership steeped in partisan loyalty to the Jonathan regime, has become an appendage of the Jonathan Presidency. A Bombardier airplane gifted to the CAN President, Pastor Ayodele Oritsejafor, was recently used as the purveyor of large haul of hard currency, ostensibly for the purchase of arms. The furore generated by this shock discovery has sparked a diplomatic row between South Africa and Nigeria. Meanwhile, the United States of America (USA) has consistently refused to sell arms to the Nigerian state. This is strange because Nigeria is a trading partner with the US; what is indisputably clear is that the Americans know more than us as to why they have refused to sell arms to this regime. What we know for a fact is that AM ...
EBOLA-Sierra Leone. (Dr. Martin Maada Salia). In this video is Dr. Martin Maada Salia, spoke about what brought him to the United Methodist Kissy Hospital, in Freetown to start treating patients. On another news update coming in today Saturday (15th Nov 2014), Medical officers said he is sicker than previous patients treated in the United States. They said though he was stable enough to take a flight from West Africa to Omaha, but was too sick to walk off the plane. He was transferred to a waiting ambulance in an isolation unit called an ISOPOD, a device used in the transportation of a potentially infectious patient, and rushed to Nebraska Medical Center to begin treatment, a hospital official said. "Although the patient's exact condition won't be available until doctors here evaluate him after he arrives, information coming from the team caring for him in Sierra Leone indicates he is critically ill - possibly sicker than the first patients successfully treated in the United States," the hospital in said ...

Less than 2 years in East Africa and I can feel myself changing. Little by little boobs and butt are becoming forbidden fruit again. I'm heading back to my gud old European roots ... In Guinea my neighbor wud walk bare breasted most of the day. Traditional West African dresses are unsexy but very revealing. In Guinea, i forgot about my western education and breasts became like any other part of a woman's body. Now that I m in UG they're all breasts again. In Saudi Arabia even ankles are arousing ... Is that the direction East Africa is going? East Africa s getting trapped in the same schizophrenia as western and arab countries. We re all sexual creatures. The more we suppress our sexuality, the more we crave for it and the more those who talk about it, get the attention they want. Sex sells. Politicians, religious leaders, newspapers, ... They're the ones who drive on East-Africa's new born conservativism.

The source explained why the war against Boko Haram is difficult and what the government can do to tackle the insurgency. The source said: “Boko Haram has nearly 10,000 ideological army and over 50,000 conscripts, including 40 per cent underage. We are not even counting numerous sect members in Abuja, Kano, Bauchi and in different parts of Nigeria, West Africa and as far as Sudan. “Most of them prefer to die in battle than to be back to their camps safely due to the endemic indoctrination within the cult group. “This is the reason why I always say here and everywhere that this crisis is far from over.

First, and most important today, I want to express my grief to the world at the loss of Dr. Martin Salia of Sierra Leone, who was evacuated by air to Nebraska (not Oklahoma, as I errantly wrote yesterday), and who passed away this morning. Dr. Salia was a real humanitarian who chose to give his life’s work to the people of Sierra Leone, though he could have had a far more comfortable life in this country where he was a permanent resident. Dr. Salia received the very best of care possible in Nebraska, inclusive of experimental treatments. It is so painful for me to see a health care worker go down with this disease. I appreciate you bearing with me. On my front, I’ll tell you about my “quarantine” and its end (last Friday). It appears the each county and state will decide possibly differently how it will track those coming from West Africa. In the case of my partner, Dr. Robins, the Nassau county authorities felt comfortable in just calling him daily. I had to be blessed with twice a day calls to . ...
What is IFA . “Yoruba People The Yoruba religion originated at lle-ife, a holy city that is regarded as the cradle of civilization for the Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria. Although the Yoruba religion was tribal in origin, it has, over the years, taken on the characteristics of a world religion. It is not only practiced by the Yoruba speaking people in West Africa, but also by people of Yoruba descent living in many countries worldwide. Worship in the Yoruba religion is based on the belief in the supreme being, Olodumare, the creator of Heaven (Orun) and earth (aye); the belief in a multitude of deities (Òrisà) and the belief in the ancestors (Egungun) Ancestor reverence is an important aspect of the Yoruba religion. It is believed that there is a spiritual bond between the ancestors who are regarded as the ―living dead and the rest of the family who are still living on earth. Ori (the head) plays a vital role in the belief of the Yoruba. It is the Ori that controls a person’s destiny. Just as the ...

Band Aid 30 - raising money to help fight ebola in West Africa. Wonder how many of them will go there to help raise awareness of the disease and show how the money raised will be spent?!! I would send One Direction first.!!
Stars unite to fight Ebola! One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Bono and a host of other stars are raising money to fight Ebola with a 30th anniversary version of the Band Aid charity single first recorded in aid of famine relief in Ethiopia. Bob Geldof, one of the original Band Aid organizers, urged people to download the song after its release today. "We go to war. We're going to stop this thing. Buy this song," Geldof said. "This isn't about me, it's not about you, it's not about them, it's about us," he said. "The reason they did this is that this thing could arrive here on a plane at any time." At a news conference last week, Geldof reflected on the cruelty of Ebola, which is killed more than 5,000 around the world, and is spread by contact with the bodily fluids of a person infected with the virus. "Mothers can't cradle their children; lovers can't comfort each other; wives can't hold their husbands' hands while they die. That's not right. It can be stopped," Geldof said. He also praised the "immensity of br ...

CBN meets bank MDs as naira crashes The naira, which has been under pressure in the last few weeks, on Monday crashed against the dollar to N173.20 at the interbank market, causing panic in the financial sector. There are also indications that this has prompted the Central Bank of Nigeria to call all bank chief executive officers to a meeting in Abuja in a bid to save the naira from further crashing. A top CBN official, who spoke under the condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak on the matter, said, “The CBN is trying to employ moral suasion now since efforts to prop up the naira in the last few weeks have not brought any result. The CBN is trying to meet the bank CEOs to persuade them to take measures and actions that will bring the naira up. “The CBN believes that some banks are advising their customers that have major future obligations to bring them forward because they don’t know what the exchange rate will be in January. They want them to assure their customers that nothi ...

United Nations News Centre - West Africa ‘on brink’ of major food crisis in wake of Ebola outbreak – UN expert:
It must be human nature to avoid exertion as long as possible. One would certainly think this is the case if we extrapolate individual behavior from global actions: the international community pays scant attention to health until there is an emergency. Is it also our nature, perhaps, to focus on only one thing at a time? The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa is a crisis that arises in part from many months of international irresolution; it demands our immediate attention to save lives. However, the simultaneous advent of chikungunya into the Americas is a rapidly emerging disaster that will cause great physical pain and bring economic insecurity to millions. But the world community has yet to pay attention. The first report of chikungunya in the western hemisphere came from the French side of St Martin last December. Abundant populations of the chikungunya virus mosquito vectors, _Aedes aegypti_ and _Aedes albopictus_, helped spread the disease quickly. Three weeks later, there were 66 confirmed case ...
Highlife is a musical genre that originated in Ghana in the 1900s and spread to Sierra Leone, Nigeria and other West African countries by 1920. It is very popular in Liberia and all of English-speaking West Africa, although little has been produced in other countries due to economic challenges brought on by war and instability. Highlife is characterized by jazzy horns and multiple guitars which lead the band.
I know its been awhile since I have mentioned anything about Ebola.. maybe it became boring, old news or maybe ya'll thought that the situation was resolved since all those in America who were infected have recovered... now that its not on our front lawn, who cares, right?? So I thought I'd update you all on the latest...More than 5,100 people have died in West Africa from this year's outbreak across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. That's more than the number of people who died here on Sept. 11th. A day we still dwell upon and mourn the destruction of so much human life. Four have died from Ebola in recent weeks in Mali and authorities are scrambling to track down another 250 individuals for monitoring. A further 14,413... I'll say it again... 14,413... are known to be infected, and the death toll among them is reaching 70... let me repeat, 70 percent,. according to the World Health Organization (WHO). This is the largest outbreak in history. THE LARGEST OUTBREAK IN HISTORY... anyway, there you have it. ...

IsraAID is looking to hire social workers, psychologists, psychotherapists and expressive art therapists. IsraAID, founded in 2001, is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation committed to providing life-saving disaster relief and long term support. For over a decade, out teams of professional medics search and rescue squads, post trauma experts and community mobilizers, have been first on the front lines of nearly every major humanitarian response in the 21st century. Our mission is to efficiently support and meet the changing needs of populations and eventually, to sustainable living. Following the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, IsraAID is currently building a psycho-social training program for service providers and affected communities in Sierra Leone. One of the fundamental challenges of the Ebola outbreak is the stigmatization of the disease, and the discrimination faced by the families of victims, as well as survivors themselves. The outbreak is putting enormous strain on the general population, ...

I dont want to go into reasons why anything Ajami or not should not be on any currency because the reasons those in favour of the Ajami have been giving me are quite weak. I will return to this.

But not often so with the one who has given so many accurate prophecies from the Lord.The Truth will always come to pass. During the latter part of 2013 we told our people about the Lord's displeasure concerning the overall attitude, and lifestyle of Liberians and that the nation will so experience the consequence of their actions unless there is genuine repentance.The warning was unheeded,hence, the reproach, and the sweeping rage of Ebola. However, God tempers justice with mercy, as usual. We have been praying,interceding and pleading for mercy and God really granted His grace and mercy for West Africa. The Lord God really mandated us to declare His Forgiveness and pardon upon the nation, with the assurance that beginning with the Month of October, 2014, Liberia will experience Peace, Healing, Restoration, Development,Blessings, Fruitfulness,Prosperity and Mighty Transformations in all sectors ...

The fatalities are not linked to the case of a young girl who died of the illness. A Malian official on Wednesday confirmed the two Ebola deaths, and added that they were not thought to be related to the country's only previous instance of the disease. Communications Minister Mahamadou Camara said that a sick imam and the nurse who treated him had both died. The two latest fatalities were at the Clinique Pasteur private clinic in the Malian capital Bamako and both were confirmed as having Ebola. The man was not suspected of having Ebola when his treatment began. The clinic, regarded as one of the best medical facilties in Bamako, was placed under lockdown by police on Tuesday night.

AJAMI: A CASE OF THROWING THE BABY WITH THE BATH WATER - With the ease President Jonathan removed the "Ajami" inscription which many (probably including him) believed albeit, erroneously to be "Arabic" on our bank notes but, which is a simple improvised method of communication. This insensitive action further proved as bogus, claims of intent by the government to improve the literacy level of Nigerians. With particular emphasis on the North, no one could miss the evil intent of keeping the Northerners in servitude using communication as a weapon. It is very funny why somebody should be worried about a simple inscription that reads "Naira Dari" (N100) simply because it's written in "AJAMI". Even funnier, why nobody seem to be bothered with the rest of the foreign inscriptions on the same note. For background, the term Ajami or Ajamiyya which is of Arabic roo literally stand for "foreign" or "stranger," and has been applied to Arabic alphabets used for writing African languages, especially those of Hausa an ...

Roman Diaz & Rumba "La Especial" Legendary Cuban master drummer ROMAN DIAZ & his percussion ensemble Thursday, November 13 Sets at 9PM, and Midnight Sets The essence of AfroCuban music is expressed in the Rumba: intoxicating polyrhythmic percussion, played on multiple drums, accompanied by call and response singing. Master percussionist Roman Diaz, the leader of the Abakuá society brought to Cuba from Calabar, West Africa, is regarded as a “living repository” of Cuba's folkoric music. As a member of the seminal Cuban rumba ensemble Yoruba Andabo, he continued the work of the legendary percussionist Pancho Quinto in creating a new definition of traditional Cuban rumba. Román Díaz left Cuba in 1999 to come to New York City.

Tetanus vaccines found spiked with sterilization chemical to carry out race-based genocide against Africans by Mike Adams NaturalNews Tetanus vaccines given to millions of young women in Kenya have been confirmed by laboratories to contain a sterilization chemical that causes miscarriages, reports the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, a pro-vaccine organization. A whopping 2.3 million young girls and women are in the process of being given the vaccine, pushed by UNICEF and the World Health Organization.

India still interviewing doctors, health inspectors for Ebola screening Even as the raging Ebola outbreak in West Africa has grown exponentially since May killing around 5,000 people, India seems to be still gearing up to deal with the deadly virus. The Airport Health Organisation, responsible for screening of patients at international airports, is still interviewing and recruiting doctors and health inspectors for the job, it is learnt. Officials as well as passengers travelling from outside the country to several international airports including New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport said the management is poor with inadequate machinery, equipment and staff for screening. For instance, a senior official from Delhi International Airport (DIAL) told TOI there is only one thermal scanner at the airport to screen passengers for fever etc. When contacted, a senior official in the health ministry said there are some doctors and health inspectors but the AHO want to get more to be prepared for a ...

Ka Ching! Family of Ebola Victim, Dallas Hospital Reach Settlement A lawyer for the family of the only Ebola patient in the United States to die says the hospital that treated him will create a foundation in his name. Attorney Les Weisbrod said in Dallas that the foundation in honor of Thomas Eric Duncan will assist other Ebola victims in West Africa. Weisbrod said the foundation is part of a larger settlement that will “take care” of Duncan’s four children and his parents. Weisbrod did not say how much the settlement was worth. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas did not immediately confirm Weisbrod’s announcement. Duncan died Oct. 8. The Liberian man was initially sent away from the hospital’s emergency room with antibiotics, something hospital administrators have acknowledged was a mistake. Copyright 2014 Associated Press.

The Sierra Leone Fellowship - Walworth Methodist Church, Clubland South East London calling on all Sierra Leoneans wherever they are to respond to the present health crisis caused by the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone and parts of West Africa. we must fight this common enemy called E- BOLA, it doesn't now where she came from, she is a destroyer and must not be used to divide and confuse us because we are better than that. The easiest way to succeed in our endeavours / aspirations is to be kind to ourselves and to others and the secret of a nation's success is consistency of purpose. Supporting the efforts on the ground in the fight against the E bola virus must be our purpose to achieve the best possible outcome.
So the whole world can't find $600m to stop Ebola, but Europe can find $1,400m to land a probe on a comet. I bet the people of West Africa are really excited seeing the pictures from Rosetta. Should help them get over the effects of the virus.

FROM THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE: Every year, we set aside Veterans Day to honor all the men and women who’ve served our country in uniform. We celebrate veterans from generations past. We welcome a new generation of veterans home from war. And we thank our future veterans, still serving at home and abroad. They are securing our nation through their engagement across the globe. Some are in West Africa, contributing to the global effort to stop the spread of Ebola. Some are in the Middle East, working closely with our coalition partners in the fight against ISIL. And some are in Afghanistan, where next month the United States will responsibly end the longest war in our history. For our troops serving around the world today, and those transitioning out of the military, our obligations are only beginning. Taking care of them, and their families, is a sacred responsibility we must always uphold. Let’s celebrate them by telling their stories. Let’s help those who need it, while supporting their stre ...
NYC doctor leaves hospital Ebola-free, warns against ‘stigma and threats’ A New York doctor who has recovered from Ebola left the hospital on Tuesday and urged support for U.S. health workers treating patients in West Africa so they do not face "stigma and threats" when they return home. The discharge of Dr. Craig Spencer, 33, who worked with Ebola patients in Guinea and had been held in isolation at Bellevue Hospital Center since he was diagnosed with the virus on Oct. 23, means no one in the United States is being treated for the disease. Looking gaunt but happy, Spencer high-fived Bellevue nurses and was hugged by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, the city's first lady Chirlane McCray and a handful of other officials at a news conference before his release. "My infection represents a fraction of the more than 13,000 reported cases in West Africa, the center of the outbreak," said Spencer, a physician from NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center who worked overseas with Doctors Wit ...

Colloidal Silver Working Against Ebola in West Africa! According to news reports coming out of Sierra Leone, West Africa, there's been a very surprising turn of events in regards to the Ebola crisis. Apparently, at least several shipments of nanosilver � colloidal silver composed of very small particles of silver suspended in water � appear to have made it into West African countries where Ebola was raging. And in spite of opposition to the use of colloidal silver by medical bureaucrats in the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the silver actually appears to working against the virus! Not only that, but Sierra Leone's Minister of Presidential and Public Affairs � a trained chemist named Alpha Kanu � has announced that 10 ppm nanosilver has now been proclaimed to be an official approved Ebola treatment in that nation. This might explain why there's been so little news coverage on Ebola here in the U.S. over the past ...
We all know that West Africa, and particularly Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia are really suffering from the devastating effects of the Ebola virus. But it's not just west Africa that's taking a hit; due to the blanket and at times apocalyptic media coverage anyone would think the whole of Africa is affected. Instead, it's a small part of a massive continent, but many businesses, especially in the tourist industry are really hurting, bookings are down and there's a real fear for 2015. Is this justified ? If you fly from London to Arusha in Tanzania you end up further from Ebola than you were when you started. Flights from the affected areas into East Africa were stopped in August. There is no reason not to go on safari in East or Southern Africa because of Ebola and those countries really need continuing tourist trade to support those employed in the industry and for their continuing conservation efforts. Safari visitors bring much needed foreign exchange and pay big money to the national parks, this rea ...

Ebola: Patient in Belfast tested for deadly virus - The person, who recently came back from West Africa, is being kept is isolation at Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital
UN 'lacks resources' to fight Ebola November 6, 2014 11:35 AM The head of the UN mission charged with fighting Ebola in West Africa has told the BBC he does not yet have the resources necessary to defeat it. Tony Banbury said more help was urgently needed, despite significant contributions from the UK, China, Cuba and the US. But he was hopeful of achieving the target of 70% bed space for new cases and 70% safe burials by December. The confirmed death toll is now 4,818, says the World Health Organization. The numbers are down since the WHO previously reported figures last Friday, as it says it has changed the way the figures are collated. But it said in the countries worst affected by the outbreak - Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea - transmission remained "persistent and widespread, particularly in the capital cities". In other developments: • West African heads of state are due to meet on Thursday in Ghana for a special meeting to review the regional response to the crisis. • The International Financ ...

It Is Too Late: Millions Of Nigerians Dying And At Risk Of Death Boko Haram is waxing stronger every day. Since the abduction of 200 Chibok girls, the Nigerian leadership totally lost its senses if it ever had them in the first place. The Jonathan-led government refused to accost Boko Haram all through this year while they were holed up in Sambisa forest. The Minister of defense, Spy Ailyu Mohammed Gusau has been tactless and deliberately hopeless in defining a prompt defense strategy to combat the terror crisis. Boko Haram should have been starved in the forest; but this was never done. Nigerians demanded the right to bear arms for battle tested and ready civilians (CJTF), hunters, ex-service men and other vigilantes to assist the overwhelmed and sabotaged military crush Boko Haram, but the Jonathan-led government suspiciously refused this logical resort that worked in Algeria during the black decade of the 80s and has also been invaluable in restraining ISIS in Iraq, and rather de-armed the local popula ...

HARRY WHITLEY THIS IS THE TRIBE OF THE WHIITLEY The Yorubas originated from Ile-Ife, arose and became quite popular by their trading with the Portuguese, which gave them a large supply of guns. However, they were unable to push back the Fulani who invaded them and pushed much of the Yoruba to the south. In the late 1800s, the Yorubas formed a treaty with the Fulani and in 1901 they were colonized by the British. Because of their enmity with the Fulani who are the great Islam evangelists, most of the Yoruba people do not hold to Islam but instead worship many of the gods and spirits that the Yoruba hold to. Economically, Yoruba people primarily engage in agriculture, with about 15% of the people employed as merchants or artists and craftsman. One of the features that make Yoruba people unique is their tendency to form into large city groups instead of small village groups. The Yorubas are today one of the three main ethnic groups that make up Nigeria. They can also be found in neighbouring countries. Peopl ...

Avram Grant to be named new Ghana coach 2 hours ago The Ghana Football Association has settled on former Chelsea manager Avram Grant as the next Black Stars coach. According to the West African nation’s football governing body, the Israeli will succeed Kwesi Appiah if he can reach a financial agreement. Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi said at a press conference Friday that the former Maccabi Tel Aviv and West Ham United manager stood out among the final candidates – a shortlist which included Michel Pont, Juan Ignacio Jimenez, Patrick Kluivert and Marco Tardelli. However, Nyantakyi said that if Grant – who is scheduled to be unveiled next week – fails to agree on the financial terms, Juan Jimenez will be the next coach of the four-time African champions. “Our preference is Avram Grant and Jimenez is our second choice. We have not reached agreement with him yet but we’re left with some small details which will be sorted out soon,” Nyantakyi said. After an interview in October, the FA said Grant ...
Ebola Survival Can Could Be Explained Through Genetics Why do some patients infected with Ebola get saved and others die? United States scientists have tested in laboratory mice that genetics is a determining factor in the course of the disease and the survival of this virus, which in its latest outbreak in West Africa, which began in March 2014, has reached fatality rates of up to 90% and has killed nearly 5,000 people.hanks to their research, Angela Rasmussen and Michael Katze of the Department of Microbiology at the University of Washington, have unraveled the genetic components that underlie the different-from mild reactions against deadly Ebola virus. In previous studies of people who had contracted Ebola, these differences were not related to specific changes in the virus itself that could make it more or less dangerous. Instead, the body tries to fight the infection itself seemed determine the severity of the disease. Until now, research on the prevention and treatment of Ebola had been hampered by ...

We were told repeatedly that the Ebola virus was nothing to worry about. We were told that it would never show up in America, and even if it did, it is incredibly difficult to spread, and there would be no outbreak. Of course, the government lied about this, much like they lie about everything else. The Ebola virus has indeed arrived in America, and it turns out that it is actually a lot easier to spread than previously admitted, although they are trying to keep that information hidden. Click here to get a FREE subscription to the Conservative Tribune. We are now getting word, via NBC New York, that at least 357 people in NYC are under “active monitoring” for the Ebola virus. That is up from the 117 people being monitored as late as Monday. Most of the people that are being monitored are recent arrivals to the country from the three Ebola-ravaged nations in West Africa, which begs the question of why the US still hasn’t implemented travel restrictions on people leaving those countries.

Decision day looms for Nations Cup hosts Morocco Reuters 17 mins ago By Mark Gleeson By Mark Gleeson CAPE TOWN, Nov 7 (Reuters) – Morocco will make a decision this weekend over whether to stage the 2015 African Nations Cup, juggling the threat of a possible spread of the Ebola virus with the likelihood of heavy sanctions against their football teams. The host nation want to postpone the Jan. 17-Feb. 8 tournament because of the deadly virus but the Confederation of African Football (CAF) is refusing to entertain a change of dates and wants a final decision from the country by Saturday. CAF said Morocco's concerns are alarmist, notably the fear the competition will attract tens of thousands of visitors from west Africa where almost 5,000 have died because of Ebola. The confederation believes there will be just a few thousand travelling fans and points out that only one country where Ebola has proven deadly, Guinea, are in the running to qualify.

STUPID DEMOCRACY: Government Houses more expensive than Nigerian Universities This is the expensive Akwa Ibom State government house. We are running a stupid democracy in Nigeria, a system of government where only those in office are seen to be enjoying the good of the land, while the people they claim to be serving are starving. The cost of building many government houses in Nigeria is far higher than what it takes to build many universities in the country with some state houses gulping as high as nine times more than the cost of building a university. It was also discovered that in many states where Billions of Naira were expended on building bogus and expansive state houses for the first families, universities owned by such state governments were in terrible conditions. In addition to this, many programmes run by these state universities are yet to be accredited by the National Universities Commission, the regulatory agency for universities in Nigeria, due to lack of fund. || But these greedy governors ...

A Spanish nurse's assistant who caught Ebola while caring for a patient is to be discharged Wednesday after 30 days in the hospital, medical officials said. Teresa Romero Ramos is now clear of the virus, Dr. Jose Ramon Arribas told a news conference in Madrid, flanked by other hospital personnel. "Everyone can be assured that there is no danger whatsoever of her being contagious," he said. Romero has spent the past month at the Carlos III Hospital in Madrid, the same hospital where she contracted the illness while helping to care for an infected missionary who had been brought back from West Africa. She chose not to speak at the news conference for personal reasons, said the hospital's director general, Dr. Rafael Perez-Santamarina. Ramon said that through Romero's case the hospital had learned many lessons about the treatment of patients with Ebola and how to protect the staff caring for them. Romero was the first person to be infected with Ebola outside West Africa in the current outbreak. Authorities a ...
