Fresh Graves Point To Undercount Of Ebola Toll

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The Ebola epidemic is spreading rapidly in Sierra Leone’s densely packed capital — and it may already be far worse than the authorities acknowledge.

  Since the beginning of the outbreak more than six months ago, the Sierra Leone Health Ministry reported only 10 confirmed Ebola deaths here in Freetown, the capital of more than one million people, and its suburbs as of Sunday — a hopeful sign that this city, unlike the capital of neighboring Liberia, had been relatively spared the ravages of the outbreak.

  But the bodies pouring in to the graveyard tell a different story. In the last eight days alone, 110 Ebola victims have been buried at King Tom Cemetery, according to the supervisor, Abdul Rahman Parker, suggesting an outbreak that is much more deadly than either the government or international health officials have announced.

“ I’m working with the burial team, and the first question I ask them is, ‘Are they Ebola-positive?’ ” said Mr. Parker, adding that the figures were based on medical certificates that he had seen himself. The deaths are carefully recorded by name and date in a notebook headed “Ebola Burials.” “

13 Deaths, Untold Heartache, From G.M. Defect

 

 

 

 

” For most of the last decade, Candice Anderson has carried unspeakable guilt over the death of her boyfriend. He was killed in 2004 in a car accident here, and she was at the wheel. At one point, Ms. Anderson, who had a trace of Xanax in her blood, even faced a manslaughter charge. She was 21.

  All these years, Ms. Anderson — now engaged and a mother — has been a devoted visitor to his grave. She tidies it every season, sweeping away leaves and setting down blue daisies with gold glitter for his birthday, miniature lit trees for Christmas, stones with etched sayings for the anniversary of their accident.

“ It’s torn me up,” Ms. Anderson said of the death of Gene Mikale Erickson. “I’ve always wondered, was it really my fault?”

Last week, she learned it was not.”

    While this scandalous behavior on the part of GM began long before the government became the major shareholder , it demonstrates most succinctly that once the Feds became a partner of this private corporation and had a vested interest in the success and/or failure of that particular corporation that it abdicated it’s primary function as a watchdog of the public’s interests .

No, Marijuana Isn’t A Gateway Drug

A new study from Emory University researchers looked at federal surveys and states that legalized medical marijuana to evaluate the impact of legalization on marijuana and other drug use. Researchers found medical marijuana legalization led adults 21 and older to use more marijuana, but the increase did not lead people to try harder drugs.

  The study has several implications for states that are considering whether to legalize marijuana for recreational or medical purposes. For one, it suggests relaxed marijuana laws can lead to more regular marijuana use, although not among teenagers. But the study also indicates that marijuana use might not be as dangerous as some critics of the drug fear.”

 

 

 

Some facts about marijuana versus other drugs , legal and otherwise …

 

 

” Marijuana is safe relative to other (already legal) drugs, such as alcohol and tobacco. But research shows marijuana could carry some health risks, particularly for teenagers and children.

  Tens and even hundreds of thousands of deaths are pinned to alcohol, cigarettes, and prescription drugs each year. Marijuana, on the other hand, made headlines when doctors found a potential link between marijuana and three deaths.

  An American Scientist analysis measured the toxicity of several drugs, comparing a drug’s effective dose — the threshold for a drug’s desired effect — to a drug’s fatal dose. Heroin’s fatal dose was five times its effective dose, alcohol’s was 10, and cocaine’s was 15. Marijuana’s was more than 1,000 (when ingested). So it takes a lot more to die from marijuana than it does to die from heroin, alcohol, or cocaine.”

Deadly bombs strike Boston Marathon

” Two bombs struck near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing two people and injuring at least 28.

The explosions sent smoke billowing into the air at Copley Square, turning a site of celebration into a mess of destruction.

“It felt like a huge cannon,” a witness told CNN about one of the blasts.

Authorities in Boston have found other explosive devices that they were working to dismantle, a federal law enforcement source told CNN. The devices were “low flashpoint,” and did not appear to have shrapnel inside them, the source said.

It was unclear who may have planted the bombs. There were no credible threats before the race, a state government official said.

Out of an abundance of caution, the Lenox Hotel was evacuated, the Boston Globe reported, as authorities looked into possible security concerns.

Massachusetts General Hospital said it was treating 19 injured people, six of them in critical condition. Tufts Medical Center reported that it was treating nine people. Combined, that brings the number of injured to at least 28. Police reported 22 people injured.”

“Diseases related to hantavirus have now killed three people who visited Yosemite National Park this summer. What is this virus, and how did this happen?”

Yosemite is synonymous with
stunning natural settings and a
chance to get away from it all. But in the past few weeks, Yosemite has attracted unwanted attention after a Hantavirus outbreak in the park.

  So far, eight Yosemite visitors are
confirmed to have contracted the virus,with three dead of Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome—a variation of Hantavirus that’s not communicable between humans, but which can be transmitted to humans through contact with excrement, saliva, or urine from infected mice. The National Park Service, along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are aggressively trying to contact people who recently visited Yosemite and could be at risk.”
