Ebola outbreak: Britain must start screening for the virus, says Home Office minister 7 Oct 2014 A Home Office minister has said Britain should consider introducing screening for Ebola carriers arriving at airports, after a Spanish nurse became the first person to have caught the virus in Europe. The accelerating Ebola crisis will be discussed on Wednesday at a meeting of Cobra, the Whitehall emergencies committee, which will be chaired by David Cameron. The Cobra meeting had been arranged before the announcement that a Spanish nurse had contracted Ebola from a patient, but the spread of the virus to Europe will give the meeting extra urgency.

Spanish nurse whose home is under police guard after she contracted Ebola...with the pet dog authorities say now has to die 7 Oct 2014 This is the first picture of the Spanish nurse who became the first person outside of Africa to become infected with Ebola. Teresa Romero Ramos is being held in quarantine at a hospital in the Spanish capital...Armed police have been spotted outside the nurse's Madrid home in the suburb of Alcorcon, as curious members of the public gathered outside. Their identities came out after Mr Romero asked a Spanish animal charity to start a social media campaign to stop health officials [sociopaths] putting his dog down. Her husband raged: 'I want to publicly denounce a man called Zarco, who I think is Head of Health for the community of Madrid and who's told me that I have to sacrifice my dog. He's asked for my consent and I've denied it, to which he responded that they would ask for a court order to enter my house and sacrifice it.'

Khorasan terrorists will attack US 'very, very soon,' FBI director warns 8 Oct 2014 The Khorasan Group, the Al-Qaeda[al-CIAduh]-linked cell that just landed on the US intelligence radar last month, allegedly has Americans in its ranks fighting in the Middle East whom the FBI cannot prevent from re-entering the country...The Khorasan Group – a veteran group of Al-Qaeda-affiliated radicals purportedly running amok in the Middle East, which the head of the FBI says is "bent on destruction" - and most specifically in the United States. "Khorasan was working and you know, may still be working on an effort to attack the United States or our allies, and looking to do it very, very soon," James Comey said in an interview with 60 Minutes, a CBS news program.

Nuclear workers kept in dark on Fukushima hazard pay

October 8, 2014 by legitgov

Nuclear workers kept in dark on Fukushima hazard pay 7 Oct 2014 Almost a year after Japan pledged to double hazard pay at the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant, workers are still in the dark about how much extra they are getting paid, if anything, for cleaning up the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. Under pressure to improve working conditions at Fukushima after a series of radioactive water leaks last year, Tokyo Electric Power Co President Naomi Hirose promised in November to double the hazard pay the utility allocates to its subcontractors for plant workers. Only one of the more than three dozen workers interviewed by Reuters from July through September said he received the full hazard pay increase promised by Tepco. In some instances, workers said they were told they would be paid a hazard bonus based on how much radiation they absorb – an incentive to take additional risks at a dangerous work site.

October 8, 2014 by legitgov

U.S. military specialists in Liberia to conduct Ebola testing: general 7 Oct 2014 About two dozen U.S. military specialists deploying to Liberia will test laboratory samples for Ebola, but most of the nearly 4,000 troops due to go there are not expected to be in direct contact with the virus, defense officials said Tuesday. General David Rodriguez, head of U.S. forces in Africa, said three mobile labs had deployed to Liberia and four more were being sought to run tests that would distinguish between people infected with Ebola and those who have diseases with similar symptoms, such as malaria.

U.S. troops set up at first Ebola field hospital in Liberia and start with a barbed wire perimeter

October 8, 2014 by legitgov

Is that fence to keep people out or the patients in? U.S. troops set up at first Ebola field hospital in Liberia and start with a barbed wire perimeter --It isn't immediately clear if the fence was to help protect the camp or to prevent sick patients escaping 6 Oct 2014 American troops have arrived at Ebola's ground zero in Liberia in a bid to battle the outbreak in the country hardest hit by the deadly disease. Poor infrastructure, difficulties with equipment and torrential rains slowed the U.S. military's initial response, but by Monday afternoon U.S. soldiers had started to erect barbed wire around what will be one of almost 20 'treatment' centers.

More Cases of Ebola in Europe Are 'Unavoidable'

October 8, 2014 by legitgov

More Cases of Ebola in Europe Are 'Unavoidable' 7 Oct 2014 The World Health Organization said on Tuesday that Europe would almost certainly see more cases of Ebola after a nurse in Spain became the first person known to have caught the virus outside Africa. The Spanish nurse, Teresa Romero, had gone on holiday in Madrid after the second of her Ebola patients died on Sept. 25, but did not start feeling ill until Sept. 30. Her trade union said she had then asked three times to be tested for Ebola before the infection was finally confirmed on Oct. 6...Dozens of doctors and nurses demonstrated outside La Paz Hospital in Madrid demanding more information about how Romero had caught Ebola, which is not airborne but transmitted through direct contact with the body fluids of a person who, experts say, must already be showing symptoms.

US military personnel on Ebola mission to handle blood samples 7 Oct 2014 The U.S. military mission to combat Ebola in West Africa is facing questions about the serious health risks American troops will encounter in heading to the epicenter of the deadly outbreak. According to officials, a small group of trained military medical technicians on the ground will not be required to make direct contact with patients infected with the Ebola virus. However, they will have to handle infected blood samples, which Pentagon officials acknowledged Tuesday could be just as dangerous, if not more.

Protein Sciences in Connecticut Expects to Begin Testing Ebola Vaccine

October 8, 2014 by legitgov

Holy coincidence, Batman! One day before Connecticut (land of the Sandy Hook drill-gone-live) announces quarantine authority for *suspected* Ebola victims, we learn that a Connecticut company is leading the way toward developing an Ebola vaccine. Protein Sciences in Connecticut Expects to Begin Testing Ebola Vaccine 6 Oct 2014 Months ago, researchers at Protein Sciences opened a refrigerator and pulled out genetic leftovers from a 4-year old project to create a vaccine for Ebola. Federal funding for the effort dried up years ago, but those refrigerated proteins jumped to the center of the company's attention when the National Institutes of Health called Protein Sciences in June and asked them to restart the work on a vaccine. And now, Protein Sciences is two months away from testing a vaccine for Ebola. Although vaccines can normally take years to reach the market, Protein Sciences says regulators could rush the approval under an emergency use authorization.

Terror Arrests May Have Foiled Major Plot --Scotland Yard said a number of addresses in London were being searched 7 Oct 2014 Four men have been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences in a series of raids, during which one suspect was tasered. The men - all aged 20 or 21 - were detained by officers from the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command at addresses across London as part of an investigation into Islamist terror activities.

U.S. troops to handle Ebola samples in Liberia, military effort to cost $750 million over six months 7 Oct 2014 U.S. military efforts to construct treatment facilities, set up more labs, conduct testing and training in Africa to deal with the Ebola crisis are expected to cost $750 million over six months, the Army general who commands U.S. troops in Africa said on Tuesday. General David Rodriguez said the U.S. has been asked to set up four more testing labs, in addition to the three already there. He said three or four highly trained U.S. troops work in each of the labs. The U.S. troops in the labs are testing specimens drawn by local hospitals and health care workers in order to help determine whether patients have the deadly Ebola virus. The troops do not come in contact with the actual sick patients, but handle 'only' the samples.

FBI asks public to help identify homegrown terrorists [Why not simply ask their FBI handlers to have them come forward?] 7 Oct 2014 One day after a Bolingbrook teen was accused in federal court in Chicago of plotting to travel [?] to the Middle East and join Islamic State, the FBI is asking for the public's help to identify other individuals who have traveled -- or are planning to travel -- overseas to fight alongside terrorist organizations.

Top German Editor: CIA Bribing Journalists

October 7, 2014 by legitgov

Top German Editor: CIA Bribing Journalists [Duh!] 3 Oct 2014 Members of the German media are paid by the CIA in return for spinning the news in a way that supports US interests, and some German outlets are nothing more than PR appendages of NATO, according to a new book by Udo Ulfkotte, a former editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of Germany's largest newspapers...Operation Mockingbird, which began in the 1950s, was a secret CIA operation which recruited journalists to serve as mouthpieces for the American government. The program was officially terminated after it was exposed by the famous Church Committee investigations, but evidence of ongoing CIA influence over the media continues to accumulate. [I mean, can you listen to cable TV 'pundits' for more than five picoseconds and not arrive at the conclusion that the warmongering, corporate wh*res are not on the CIA payroll? It's a no-brainer.]

Liberia health workers to stage go-slow for Ebola hazard pay 7 Oct 2014 Health workers in Liberia said on Monday they would press on with plans for a go-slow protest to support their claim for hazard pay as they fight an Ebola epidemic, despite a plea from the U.N.

The hemorrhagic virus has also taken a heavy toll on health workers and this has galvanized the National Health Workers Association of Liberia, said its secretary general George Williams.

US throws Apache helicopter gunships into fight against Isil --Britain announces latest air strikes by RAF Tornados were west of capital in Ramadi 6 Oct 2014 American forces have begun air strikes using helicopter gunships assigned to protect the US embassy in Baghdad, as they try to beat back Isil militants within striking distance of the Iraqi capital.

Supreme Court Hands Gay Marriage a Tacit Victory

October 6, 2014 by legitgov

Supreme Court Hands Gay Marriage a Tacit Victory 6 Oct 2014 In a move that may signal the inevitability of a nationwide right to same-sex marriage, the Supreme Court on Monday let stand appeals court rulings allowing such unions in five states. The development, a major surprise, cleared the way for same-sex marriages in Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin. Officials in Virginia announced that marriages would start at 1 p.m. on Monday. The decision to let the appeals court rulings stand, which came without explanation in a series of brief orders, will almost immediately increase the number of states allowing same-sex marriage from 19 to 24, along with the District of Columbia.
