Lab-Altered H5N1 Flu More Infectious to Humans than Birds

Lab-Altered H5N1 Flu More Infectious to Humans than Birds 26 Apr 2013 A new study suggests a laboratory-mutated H5N1 avian influenza virus could pose a greater risk to humans than to birds, adding to concerns about the new avian flu strain that has emerged recently in China. Over a year ago, Japanese researchers created a genetically-altered version of the H5N1 avian influenza virus to explore the risk of start human-to-human transmission. They reported in the journal Nature in early 2012 that the mutated pathogen could be transmitted among mammals through the air in aerosol droplets -- for example, from sneezing. They conducted their experiments with ferrets, small domesticated mammals that are a good model for human disease transmission. [Right, US (and Japanese) bioterrorists are *dying* to get the pandemic party started, to make a killing on their deadly vaccines.]

Fujian's health authority said a 65-year-old man surnamed Luo had tested positive for the virus, Xinhua reported.

Heads up!! Emergency actors will be in Sarasota Friday for hospital explosion disaster drill 24 Apr 2013 Sarasota County emergency managers, local fire, police and EMS personnel and Sarasota Memorial Hospital will participate in a disaster drill Friday. The training drill will simulate an accidental explosion at the hospital in a hyperbaric chamber on the fourth floor of the Waldemere Tower. The exercise will include actors in make-up and Hollywood-like special effects, testing Sarasota County's disaster response, evacuation procedures and triage and emergency care of multiple mock victims. The exercise is one of two countywide disaster drills that Sarasota Memorial hosts each year and has been planned over the past few months in conjunction with local law enforcement and emergency management officials, the hospital stated in a news release. There will be a number of emergency vehicles on site, including fire, police, EMS and emergency management, the hospital noted, seeking to reassure anyone who sees the scene that it is only a drill. [See: Bomb Sniffing Dogs, Spotters on Roofs Before Boston Explosions - UM Coach 15 Apr 2013 University of Mobile's Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.

Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race.]

Pentagon downplays comment on F-35 fighter jet cyber threat

Pentagon downplays comment on F-35 fighter jet cyber threat 25 Apr 2013 The Pentagon on Thursday downplayed a comment by one of its officials that he is not totally confident in the ability of the $396 billion F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, built by Lockheed Martin Corp., to survive a cyber attack. The Pentagon's F-35 program office issued a statement that the Department of Defense was "fully aware of evolving cyber threats and is taking specific action to counter them for all fielded systems, including F-35." Christopher Bodgan, the F-35 program manager, spoke to lawmakers on Wednesday. Bogdan, an Air Force Lieutenant General, told a Senate Armed Services subcommittee that he was "not that confident" about security implemented by the companies that build the plane.

White House: U.S. Intelligence Has 'Varying Degrees of Confidence' That Assad Used Chemical Weapons

White House: U.S. Intelligence Has 'Varying Degrees of Confidence' That Assad Used Chemical Weapons [LOL! I wouldn't believe anything this White House said if its tongue came notarized.] 25 Apr 2013 The White House said on Thursday that American intelligence agencies now assess, with "varying degrees of confidence," that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons, but it said it needed conclusive proof before President Obama would take action. The disclosure, in letters to Congressional leaders, takes the administration a step closer to acknowledging that President Bashar al-Assad has crossed a red line established by Mr. Obama last summer, when he said the United States would take unspecific action against Syria if there was evidence that chemical weapons had been used. The White House emphasized that, "given the stakes involved," the United States still needed "credible and corroborated facts" before deciding on a course of action.

DHS Denies Ammo Purchases Aimed at Civilians

DHS Denies Ammo Purchases Aimed at Civilians 25 Apr 2013 Officials at the Department of Homeland Security denied Thursday that its large-scale ammunition purchases were an effort keep bullets out of the hands of private citizens. At a hearing on Capitol Hill Thursday, top DHS training officer Humberto Medina said he could "say categorically that was not a factor at all" in the purchases. He also noted that ammunition DHS purchased would be used for both operations and training purchases. The Associated Press reported in February that DHS was planning to buy more than 1.6 billion rounds over the next five years, a number that sparked fears of government stockpiling -- which DHS previously denied to Whispers. Officials told lawmakers DHS actually was planning to buy only [?!?] up to 750 million rounds.

The website attributed the reason for this campaign to Israeli negligence for the frustration of Americans towards Israeli policies in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Exxon's Duck-Killing Pipeline Won't Pay Taxes to Oil Spill Cleanup Fund 02 Apr 2013 A technicality has spared Exxon from having to pay any money into the fund that will be covering most of the clean up costs of its Arkansas pipeline spill. The cleanup efforts themselves took a sobering turn as crews found injured and dead ducks covered in oil. The environmental impacts of an oil spill in central Arkansas Exxon's Duck-Killing Pipeline Won't Pay Taxes to Oil Spill Cleanup Fundbegan to come into focus Monday as officials said a couple of dead ducks and 10 live oily birds were found after an ExxonMobil Corp. pipeline ruptured last week.

Exxon Q1 profit totaled $9.5 billion

Exxon Q1 profit totaled $9.5 billion --Corpora-terrorists exempt from paying taxes toward cleaning its oil spills 25 Apr 2013 Exxon Mobil Corp said on Thursday its quarterly profit edged up, helped by higher earnings in its chemicals business but oil and gas production fell. Earnings per share topped Wall Street expectations but the gains largely came after a big stock buyback that reduced the number of outstanding shares by 5 percent. First-quarter profit for the world's largest publicly traded oil company totaled $9.5 billion, or $2.12 per share, compared with $9.45 billion, or $2 per share, a year earlier... Meanwhile, Exxon is exempt from paying taxes toward the oil spill liability fund that helps clean up spills like in Arkansas, where wildlife have been killed and covered by oil.

England prepares mass-vaccination push as measles cases rise

England prepares mass-vaccination push as measles cases rise 25 Apr 2013 England aims to inject a million youngsters with measles vaccine following a surge in cases of the potentially fatal disease, public health authorities said Thursday. The rise in cases appears to be due to a period in the late 1990s and early 2000s when fears over a discredited link between the MMR vaccine and autism were at their height, Public Health England (PHE) said. The MMR vaccine 'immunises against' measles, mumps and rubella.

Baucus retires, a grateful nation cheers

Baucus retires, a grateful nation cheers 24 Apr 2013 With one glorious stroke Max Baucus has made it possible for two of America's more interesting politicians to play bigger roles on the national stage... Never has a politician done so much to lift the prospects of the republic simply by saying goodbye. Is there a soul outside Montana who is mourning Baucus's decision not to run for a seventh term? Baucus helped George W. Bush pass his big tax cuts in 2001, making him an accomplice in the biggest fiscal mistake of this generation, squandering the hard-won surpluses that Bill Clinton (with Newt Gingrich's help) had bequeathed... The Montana senator was the delayer-in-chief on President Obama's health reform, persuading the White House to let crucial time pass in 2009 while he tried and failed to secure Republican Chuck Grassley's support. Baucus's pussyfooting gave the GOP an opening to demagogue Obamacare and move public sentiment against it

Senate hearing blasts Obama's refusal to share details of drone program

Senate hearing blasts Obama's refusal to share details of drone program 23 Apr 2013 Democratic and Republican senators joined a former deputy chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Tuesday in urging the Obama administration to make public more information about its top-secret targeted killing program amid questions about the legality and effectiveness of hundreds of CIA drone strikes in Pakistan and elsewhere.

Boston bombing suspect put on terrorist watch list at CIA request

Boston bombing suspect put on terrorist watch list at CIA request --Officials said Tsarnaev's name was added to the database but it's unclear which agency added it. 24 Apr 2013 The CIA asked the main U.S. counterterrorism agency to add the name of one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers to a watch list more than a year before the attack, according to U.S. officials. The agency took the step after Russian authorities contacted officials there in the fall of 2011 and raised concerns that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was seen as an increasingly radical Islamist and could be planning to travel overseas. The CIA requested that his name be put on a database maintained by the National Counterterrorism Center. That database, the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment, or TIDE, is a data storehouse that feeds a series of government watch lists, including the FBI's main Terrorist Screening Database and the Transportation Security Administration's "no-fly" list.

Tax Lobby Builds Ties to Max Baucus, Chairman of Finance Panel

Tax Lobby Builds Ties to Max Baucus, Chairman of Finance Panel 07 Apr 2013 At least 28 aides who have worked for Senator Baucus, DemocRAT of Montana, since he became the committee chairman in 2001 have lobbied on tax issues during the Obama administration -- more than any other current member of Congress, according to the analysis of lobbying filings performed for The New York Times. "K Street is literally littered with former Baucus staffers," said Jade West, an executive at a wholesalers' trade association that relies on a former finance panel aide, Mary Burke Baker. Like Ms. Baker, many of those lobbyists have already saved their clients millions -- in some cases, billions -- of dollars after Mr. Baucus backed their requests to extend certain corporate tax perks, provisions that were adopted as part of the so-called fiscal cliff legislation in January. Baucus aides who later became lobbyists helped financial firms save $11.2 billion in tax deferments and helped secure a $222 million tax benefit that is shared with the liquor industry.

Good riddance, Senator Baucus

Good riddance, Senator Baucus 23 Apr 2013 Unfortunately, in the last decade Montana Sen. Max Baucus ('D') has used that power in terribly destructive ways. For instance, he has used it to sculpt what became President [sic] George W. Bush’s deficit-ballooning tax cuts; riddle the tax code with corporate tax giveaways; eliminate a public option from healthcare legislation; and champion job-destroying "free" trade deals. Just as destructive as what he has done as chairman is what he has prevented: On behalf of his biggest campaign donors he has, for instance, watered down drug reimportation legislation; "limit(ed) the drug industry's 10-year financial exposure under healthcare reform," according to the Hill newspaper; blocked a serious consideration of legislation to close corporate tax loopholes, and, as the Missoula Independent notes, "refused to allow any discussion of universal or single-payer health care, instead kowtowing to his donors." These are just some of the big things. Baucus has also been the reliable engineer of smaller but equally destructive rip-offs -- most recently, a half-billion-dollar pay-to-play giveaway to a pharmaceutical company in exchange for campaign contributions. [Exactly. Bye-bye, maggot!]

NYPD teams with US lab to study airborne weapons

Heads up! Let's hope the dirt-bags don't 'go live,' as they did on 9/11 and last week in Boston! NYPD teams with US lab to study airborne weapons --Tests will be conducted in July in all five boroughs 24 Apr 2013 The New York Police Department is teaming up with a national laboratory to study how chemical weapons could be dispersed through the air into the subway system. Researchers will track the movement of harmless tracer gases. They'll place air sampling devices in specific areas on the street and within the subway system. The gases mimic how a chemical or biological weapon may react if released. The project with the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory was announced Wednesday. It will be funded through a $3.4 million federal grant. [Yeah, let's cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid so these sociopaths can do biowarfare drills that will inevetably 'go live,' so that more and more drills will be 'needed.' --LRP]
