meanwhile...here in the newsroom. Kaci Hickox just walked in to do some interviews. I walked up to her, introduced myself, shook her hand and thanked her for all of her work in West Africa. She was super nice. I told her I'm sure she'll be happier in southern Maine. I'm a total dork. I realize this. But she's a hero in my book.

This is the logo of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) which is now on a major fund-raising campaign all over FB. It's Henry Kissinger's "charity". The Board of Directors includes Kissinger, Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, Eely-Oily Weasel, magnates from JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, including Felix Rohatyn (who presided over the dismantling of social services in NYC during the 1970s) & James Wolfensohn (past president of the World Bank dismantling social services on several continents) & the usual cosmetic array of celebrities. Every opportunity from Mother's Day to Christmas is used for fund-raising. Using poignant photos of children, they solicit donations for prenatal & maternal health care, clean water, warm blankets. Right now it's to help stop Ebola in West Africa. It’s not certain what IRC does with its money or why the millionaires & billionaires who claim to volunteer their services don’t bankroll it out of their own immense resources since their ...

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. ...
An anecdote by British Prime Minister David Cameron during his address to Parliament has inadvertently shed light on the Abbott government's much-criticised path to committing health workers to the Ebola crisis in West Africa.
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, ...

Kelechi Deca wrote: "New 100 Naira note: much ado about nothing Since today, the Nigerian public narrative space has been awash with indignation over what some call the removal of the 'Ajami' from the Commemorative N100 note. 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. I was surprised that those who went to town declaring that President Jonathan and his brother the CBN Governor have replaced the Ajami with the Star of David, dont even know what the Star of David looks like. It amuses me that they picked the Star of David. I wont go into that too. But if they cared to get information, the CBN Governor did say while explaining the features that the currency has a spark feature of a rolling manila bar which was the instrument used during the slave trade era.

Ebola outbreak in West Africa passes "grim milestone" of 5,000
A prophecy that does not come true is not of God. The Prophet must be a liar or a major error has taken place. 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. Since then he has been featured alongside Orlando “Puntilla” Rios in the critically acclaimed documentary Calle 54, and in ‘Dame La Mano’ the film that documents the life and times of Union City’s Esquina Habanera, the Grammy-nominated rumba ensemble Raíces Habanera a . ...

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. "We sent six samples from around Kenya to laboratories in South Africa. They tested positive for the HCG antigen," Dr. Muhame Ngare of the Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi told LifeSiteNews "They were all laced with HCG."

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.

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 ...

Inside Aso ROCK: President Jonathan inaugurates new stadium at Akwa Ibom State Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has inaugurated the ultra modern 30,000 capacity Akwa Ibon Stadium built by the Akwa Ibom State government in south-eastern Nigeria.President Jonathan, who was assisted by Presidents John Dramani Mahama of Ghana and his Ivorian counterpart, President Alassane Drmane Ouattara, on Friday in Uyo, the Akaw Ibom state capital, paid tributes to Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom, who executed the project in record time, pointing out that governments in Nigeria sometimes initiated programmes, which they often are unable to complete. “This has not been the case here. I therefore commend the governor for the achievement,” he said.

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 ...

Cape Town is seen as the gateway to Africa! Many a peoples are making huge strides to control this part is Africa: Indians, European settlers, Chinese, Moslems, so also the Ngunis from West Africa. It is of paramount importance, therefore, that the Aborigines take note of the extent of the campaign by the Nguni's to make Cape Town ungovernable. Nguni's were carted by the busloads from the Eastern Cape to come and grab land here. Young girls were removed by the Nguni leadership from their mothers houses, impregnated by their men, put in shacks erected on land considered lying barren by them. With the obvious lack of infra structure to accommodate the influx, it is quite obvious that major problems will ensue. The Aborigines had to be denied job opportunities. With that came the destruction of our family structures.

Fort Kent, Maine (AP) — A nurse who successfully fought a state quarantine for health care workers who have treated Ebola patients said she had no option but to challenge how medical professionals were being treated and is hopeful that others who return from West Africa won’t face the same reaction. Kaci Hickox said in an interview with the Maine Sunday Telegram that she was fighting for the rights of other U.S. medical workers who are trying to bring the deadly outbreak under control in West Africa. After she arrived in Maine last week, state health officials went to court in an attempt to bar her from crowded public places. A judge ruled Friday she must continue daily monitoring of her health but can go wherever she pleases. Maine Gov. Paul LePage said he disagreed with the ruling but would abide by it. “I hope in six months aid workers returning back can be unnoticed,” Hickox told the newspaper. “They won’t be in the media like I was, I hope. And they can walk into a grocery store and maybe ...

While people in this poverty- and conflict-ridden region of West Africa are struggling to meet the Ebola challenge, the international public attention has returned after a decade of pausing its attention, after the Civil Wars of Sierra Leone and Liberia ended in 2002 and 2003 respectively. But media coverage of Guinea has always been thin. Now it has come to dubious fame as the source of the largest and most widely spread outbreak of Ebola virus disease. Official rates of new infections were lower than in neighboring Sierra Leone and Liberia but have been rising as of September. So what is different with regard to the Ebola response in the country that has been flying under the radar of many Africa- or crisis-observers? What the Ebola crisis reveals about Guinea, besides precariously weak public health infrastructure, is the workings of a state apparatus that for decades has been basing itself economically on mining revenues and politically on authoritarian population control through military and police. ...

Alarmed by Ebola, Public Isn’t Calmed by ‘Experts Say’ When public health leaders and government officials make the case against isolating more people returning from the Ebola hot zones in West Africa, or against imposing more travel restrictions from that region, time and again they cite science and experts. It isn’t working very well. So far, so good. However... Polls show the overwhelming majority of Americans favor quarantine in cases like that of Kaci Hickox, the nurse who was held against her will in a Newark hospital on the orders of one governor and has fended off the efforts of another governor to sharply restrict her movements. Some prominent conservative commentators dismiss the assurances of scientists, Obama administration officials and the ne ...
GOD IS IN CONTROL I form the light and create the darkness I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things. Isaiah 45:7 As the global village experiences natural disaster, flood, typhoon, Ebola, Jihadist the questions which are raised are: Where is God? What should be the response of the governing authorities? What will happen to us? Is the world coming to an end? Or are these up-heaves ushering in the day of the Lord? Ebola epidemic is the great threat in West African countries. It is reported that this epidemic is great than the official reports because people are reluctant to admit that their loved one has the virus. It is estimated that in West Africa more than 4500 people have died. We have one death in Dallas Texas. The challenge of this decease is that it turned the patient’s body to a weapon of mass destruction and for that reason the patient is ostracized when he needs his loved one the most. As mentioned in the previous Newsletter, Jihadist continue to be a global thre ...

"Sheila Pinette of the Maine CDC has released information that the roommate of Kaci Hickox, while in West Africa has displayed signs of ebola. Pinette says “The respondents roommate in Africa became infected without knowing how she became infected with Ebola. (Any potential risk to respondent from that incident has passed).” This is one of 35 points Pinette made while filing a verified petition for public health order yesterday with the state. Kaci Hickox was issued temporary court order. The document says Hickox must submit to active monitoring, coordinate her travel with public health authorities, not use commercial or public transportation, not go to any public places or workplaces unless to receive necessary health care, and she must maintain a 3-foot distance from other people and not leave Fort Kent without consulting public health authorities."

West Africa: Ebola and the failure of governance - New African Magazine via
A Maine court today ordered Kaci Hickox to stay at least three feet from other people and out of public places for now, and an ABC News poll reported that 80 per cent of Americans believe everyone coming back from West Africa ought to be subject to some kind of quarantine. Hickox has so far not responded to my invitation to come down here and have lunch at the Round House Cafe, I suspect she is getting a lot of e-mail. [ 885 more words. ]

Corps of Engineers mission in West Africa aimed at supporting Ebola containment | Article | The United States Army
ANALYSIS - Soja and Civilian Protocols not the same in US: A U.S. soldier returning from an Ebola response mission in West Africa would have to spend 21 days being monitored, isolated in a military facility away from family and the broader population. A returning civilian doctor or nurse who directly treated Ebola patients? Depends. The Pentagon has put in place the most stringent Ebola security measures yet, going beyond even the toughest measures adopted by states such as New York, New Jersey and Maine and much further than the guidance set by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for travelers returning from the afflicted region. "I have one responsibility and that is the security of this country," Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday. "And that means the security of our men and women and their families." He called the Pentagon's step a "smart, wise, prudent, disciplined, science-oriented decision." Yet, the policy far surpasses federal government standards. The CDC recommends t ...
OPINION - Dr. Rick Sacra, a missionary who contracted Ebola in Liberia this August, was first treated there. Each nurse on the ward cared for 15 or 20 patients, and none could work for more than an hour at a time because the protective gear was so suffocatingly hot. They never drew his blood for lab tests. There was no lab. “A nurse makes rounds maybe once every eight hours,” Dr. Sacra said. A doctor came by once a day. “The staff is so few.” After he was evacuated to Nebraska Medical Center, a nurse stayed in his room all the time, and dozens of people were involved in his care. He had daily blood tests to monitor his electrolytes, blood count, liver and kidneys, and doctors used the results to adjust what went into his intravenous lines. The stark difference in the care available in West Africa and the United States is reflected in the outcomes, as well. In West Africa, 70 percent of people with Ebola are dying, while seven of the first eight Ebola patients treated in the United States have walk ...

I think the media is doing a disservice to Africa by repeatedly referring to the Ebola epidemic as being in Africa or in West Africa. There are fifteen countries that are considered to be in West Africa and three have been affected by the virus.Think before condemning an entire continent that by-the-way consists of over 50 countries. "In line with the current membership of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), West Africa has been defined in Africa as including the fifteen countries of Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo."

Mountain gorilla mum with their young, all shots taken in Virunga and the Congo There are roughly 700 mountain gorillas remaining on Earth, and nearly half live in the forests of the Virunga mountains in central Africa. These gorillas live on the green, volcanic slopes of Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo—areas that have seen much human violence from which the gorillas have not escaped unscathed. Many conservation initiatives are meant to aid mountain gorillas, and it is believed that their numbers may be steady or slowly increasing. Still they continue to face major threats from habitat loss and poaching. Mountain gorillas have longer hair and shorter arms than their lowland cousins. They also tend to be a bit larger than other gorillas. Gorillas can climb trees, but are usually found on the ground in communities of up to 30 individuals. These troops are organized according to fascinating social structures. Troops are led by one dominant, older adult male, often called a silverback . ...

Harriet Powers was born on this date in 1837. She was a Black artist who worked in textile needlework. Born a slave in Athens, GA, she married Armstead Powers; her first daughter Amanda was born when she was 18. In time, eight more children were born to Harriet and Armstead; the last, a son named Marshall, census records suggest, born in 1872. Some historians speculate she spent her early years on a plantation owned by John and Nancy Lester northeast of Athens near Danielsville in Madison County. Powers more than likely learned the art of quilt making embroidered with appliqué work from her plantation mistress or from other slaves. Blacks did fancy needlework for their owners during the daylight hours and labored to provide practical clothing and bed covers for their own families by candlelight. Textile historians also note great similarities between Powers' work and the technique mastered by the Fon people of Dahomey, West Africa. Immediately following the close of the Civil War, in April 1865, life was ...
