U.S. State Department Orders 160,000 Ebola Hazmat Suits

The U.S. State Department has ordered 160,000 Hazmat suits for Ebola, prompting concerns that the federal government is anticipating the rapid spread of a virus that has already claimed an unprecedented number of lives.

Will the Ebola virus go airborne? (And is that even the right question?)


The Ebola virus, which has killed more than 2,400 people during the ongoing epidemic in West Africa, spreads through contact with bodily fluids. That means you can catch it from infected blood, for example, or if you come in contact with vomit from an Ebola patient.

You can't catch it from breathing in the same air as someone suffering from Ebola — at least you can't right now. But as the virus continues to spread and mutate, could airborne transmission become a concern?

Seeing two extremes here, one wonders whether or not it will ever end...
Has to end sometime.

Obama Plans Major Ebola Offensive
More Doctors, Supplies and Portable Hospitals Planned for Africa

WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama plans to dramatically boost the U.S. effort to mitigate the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, including greater involvement of the U.S. military, people familiar with the proposal said.

Mr. Obama is expected to detail the plan during a visit Tuesday to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, these people said. Among the possible moves: sending additional portable hospitals, doctors and health-care experts, providing medical supplies and conducting training for health workers in Liberia and other countries.

Mr. Obama also is expected to urge Congress to approve the request he made last week for an additional $88 million to fund his proposal.

Back to the original case.

Link is a couple days old.

Agency: Woman pushed officer who then punched her


LOS ANGELES (AP) — A California Highway Patrol officer videotaped repeatedly punching a woman on the side of a Los Angeles freeway had just pulled her from oncoming traffic and she resisted by pushing him, a patrol investigator said.

Investigator Sean Taketa outlined the July 1 incident in a request to search 51-year-old Marlene Pinnock's medical records. The narrative in the search warrant was made public in court documents last month and is the first detailed account of the incident since a passing driver released cellphone video that went viral.

Don't worry Lynn, I've decided for the moment to accept the parks most generous offer, the rent will go down by $105.00 a month($320 to $215, $215 is space rent here), since they are cancelling the transfer of the title from Me to the park and the $6500 I sold the mobile home for in 2011 is to be forgiven and before all that is done they will fix My gas heater, I was told all of this by the General Manager here in the Trinity Oasis Palms MHP.



Wise decision, Vic :)

@ David, the park is just rescinding the transfer from Me to the park of the mobile home that I live in, I've decided to accept their generous offer.

@ Lynn, Es99, Julie, and Angela, thanks all. :)

Now on a place that I looked at today, in Victorville CA, the bad news is the owners, want Cash only and the place has floor problems w/possible mold in where the washer and dryer would go, so the place is off My list, the agent is going to look for something in the $68,000.00 range that doesn't involve an HOA fee and has no rent, I'm not going to hold My breathe, so I don't expect a call, the walls here and there and in one door have some holes and the thermostat is missing, so no idea if the blower works or not and the owner will make no repairs at all, plus part of what could be a skirt is broke in one spot, so beyond that and needing new paint in and out and floor and flooring(kitchen and laundry area) and new carpet in the front room, the place is mainly cosmetic, but I'm not going to bother with this place. I took 7 pics.

This mobile home is a fixer upper.


Possible mold, maybe, where the clothes washer and dryer would go, just outside the kitchen.


Where the gas range(stove/oven) goes, needs floor repaired and new flooring.


View of the kitchen and part of the laundry area. Has hole in wall next to doorway.


No Thermostat, so blower might be iffy.


Hole in wall in 2nd bathroom.


3 More holes in the same bathroom.


Leave that place alone, Vic. Could have toxic mold.

Are aliens hiding on MOONS? Hunting for ET on planets' satellites may be our best chance at first contact, claims expert

Dr David Kipping of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics says our best chance of finding life may be on exomoons
He is working on a mission to study distant moons for signs of habitability using the Kepler telescope, reports All About Space magazine
Moons around extrasolar gas giants could potentially be havens for life
In an upcoming study Dr Kipping and his team will look at hundreds of exoplanets for signs of moons
They will then discern how common different moons are in the Milky Way
And it's hoped that one day habitable exomoons will be found

NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover Arrives at Martian Mountain


NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has reached the Red Planet's Mount Sharp, a Mount-Rainier-size mountain at the center of the vast Gale Crater and the rover mission's long-term prime destination.

"Curiosity now will begin a new chapter from an already outstanding introduction to the world," said Jim Green, director of NASA's Planetary Science Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "After a historic and innovative landing along with its successful science discoveries, the scientific sequel is upon us."

Ebola is ‘devouring everything in its path.’ Could it lead to Liberia’s collapse?





With Ebola's death toll surging and a top United Nations official declaring that "the rate of acceleration is now picking up dramatically," Liberian officials have been making dire pronouncements about the deepening crisis in their country.

At a news conference Thursday, finance minister Amara Konneh said Liberia is at "war with an enemy we don't see." Two days earlier, the Ebola-ravaged country's defense minister, Brownie Samukai, delivered a harrowing warning of his own.

Ebola virus: 'Biological war' in Liberia

With warnings from officials that the Ebola virus is "spreading like wildfire" in Liberia, Sarah Crowe, who works for the UN children's agency (Unicef), describes her week on the Ebola front line:

Flights into disaster zones are usually full of aid workers and journalists. Not this time.

The plane was one of the first in after some 10 airlines stopped flying to Liberia because of Ebola, and still it was empty.
