Zika Outbreak Epicenter in Same Area Where GM Mosquitoes Were Released in 2015 | 28 Jan 2016 | The World Health Organization announced it will convene an Emergency Committee under International Health Regulations on Monday, February 1, concerning the Zika virus's 'explosive' spread throughout the Americas...Brazil is now considered the epicenter of the Zika outbreak, which coincides with at least 4,000 reports of babies born with microcephaly just since October. Oxitec first unveiled its large-scale, genetically-modified mosquito farm in Brazil in July 2012, with the goal of reducing "the incidence of dengue fever," as The Disease Daily reported. Dengue fever is spread by the same Aedes mosquitoes which spread the Zika virus -- and though they "cannot fly more than 400 meters," WHO stated, "it may inadvertently be transported by humans from one place to another."

The new rules, Mr. Obama's latest bid to use his executive power to address a priority of his that Congress has resisted acting on, would mandate that companies with 100 employees or more include salary information on a form they already submit annually that reports employees' sex, age and job groups.

Heathrow official boards aborted transatlantic flight to test air after eight people fall ill; airline confiscates all luggage for unexplained 'checks' --Mystery surrounds why passengers' luggage was confiscated for 'checks' | 27 Jan 2016 | Mystery still surrounds why a flight attendant collapsed and seven other people were taken ill during a mid-air drama above the Atlantic. Panicked passengers told of the scary moment a plea went out for any doctors onboard before the captain of the American Airlines flight declared a 'medical emergency' and returned to London. Emergency vehicles were scrambled and, once on the ground, the aborted Los Angeles-bound flight was escorted to the terminal before passengers were told to remain in their seats. It has since emerged that those onboard were not allowed to disembark until tests had been carried out for any 'elevated levels of substances' in the cabin air - analysis that yielded no answers. All luggage was then confiscated for 'checks' by American Airlines and Heathrow authorities, but passengers were kept in the dark as to the motive for doing so.

Police chief Shelley Zimmerman on Naval Medical Center incident: 'We trained for this' | 26 Jan 2016 | An apparently unfounded report of shots fired Tuesday morning at Naval Medical Center San Diego prompted lockdowns of the facility and nearby schools as law enforcement officers flooded the area and searched the hospital complex. About 8 a.m., authorities got word from a Department of Defense employee reporting what sounded like three gunshots seemingly coming from the basement of NMCSD Building 26, which houses a gymnasium and barracks, according to Navy Region Southwest...Mayor Kevin Faulconer hailed the "tremendous collaboration" displayed during the emergency. "This is what we train for -- as a region, as a city," he said. "The fact (is) that we had, at last count, seven law enforcement agencies from the federal, the state, the local level that all pitched in, (that) didn't wait."

Naval Medical Center San Diego 'Shooting': 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know 26 Jan 2016 A base spokesman told CW6 San Diego that personnel conducted an active shooter drill in December 2015. He added that the source of the investigation right now is the building's basement. That spokesman doesn't know if the basement has been evacuated. Non-emergency personnel have been advised to stay away from the building, reports ABC San Diego...The base is the jurisdiction of military police who are co-ordinating with local and federal agencies. NBC San Diego reports that two California Highway Patrol officers were seen entering the medical center at around 8:30 a.m. local time. Officer John Perryman told the San Diego Union-Tribune that there is a "minimumn of 100" cops at the hospital.
