Eboooolaaaah… YUM!

Where can Ebola fly to today?

that graphic is courtesy of the Daily Mail, which also includes this Ebola prediction:

The researchers at Northeastern University, in Boston, calculated the countries most at risk in the short term, are:

  • Ghana
  • UK
  • Nigeria
  • Gambia
  • Ivory Coast
  • Belgium
  • France
  • Senegal
  • Morocco
  • Mali
  • Mauritiania
  • Guinea Bissau
  • U.S.
  • Germany
  • South Africa
  • Kenya

LAT: Some Ebola experts worry virus may spread more easily than assumed.
That seems to jibe with this report from NYT:

As an assistant nurse, the woman who became infected had only twice entered the room of the missionary Manuel Garcรญa Viejo, who died of Ebola, including once after his death, according to Antonio Alemany, a health official from the regional government of Madrid.

In non-Ebola news, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has two new cases of kids with muscle-weakness that is probably Enterovirus-D68, to add to their 3 confirmed cases already there.
This after a four year old in New Jersey died overnight on Sept 25 of the virus with no symptoms.

Meanwhile, an important message from the CDC:

    The nurse’s union in Spain is claiming that the protective gear was inadequate. Not sure what they used.

  2. Last week I got an infection from cleaning my salt water tank. Luckily, as soon as symtoms appeared I was able to see a doctor who gave me multiple antibiotics It happened this weekend. I feel like shit.
    Anyway, my nephew, 27 years old just happens to clean salt aquariums for a living. Big ones, so big that at times he has to dive into them. His company dropped their group coverage 2 months ago ( I wonder why;sarc) He’s also highly allergic to bee stings and has to have an epipen with him at all times.
    So I got on the horn trying to find him new coverage. Although I knew an agent, when I called him he referred me to (you guessed it) HEALTHCARE.GOV.
    We filled out the enrollment stuff at the beginning and received a link via email to log-in. Went to log in, nothing. Kept trying but no go. There was a number to call. Called it and although the women was pleasant, she could offer no help. She stated “we’ve been having trouble with that for awhile”. I asked if maybe we should start over and she said since we’d already entered his info we were stuck offering no alternatives.
    I called my agent friend again. It seems he has to rely on Healthcare.gov’s site too or else we must put in a general call for information and wait for insurance companies to call us individually and try to sell us insurance. He has to buy short term insurance to cover until the new year, then purchase general major medical when the window for enrollment opens Nov. 15.
    So far my phone has rung off the hook. Every agent says “so you are looking for an Obamacare policy”. Something is majorly wrong here. I think the situation has worsened not improved one bit.

    • votermom says:

      Ugh. What a nightmare.
      How does he dive into a salt water tank – does he use scuba gear?

      • Yes he does, he had to get a certification. Some of these tanks are amazing and the individuals who own the biggest ones are the sports figures he services. He also services the aquarium they placed in the new Marlin’s stadium that nobody ever goes to.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I think the fans are still mad about the World Series ticket gaffe. My son was a season ticket holder and he couldn’t get WS tickets because they gave them all out to corporate sponsers and their pals. He never went back to another game. Haven’t they moved to downtown Miami and changed their names since then? I remember seeing them close to my son’s home in Davie, which was much more suburban and easier to get to.

  3. 49erDweet says:

    Did anyone else notice DM’s list doesn’t include Liberia????????????
    So why are our troops building a “hospital” there? Near an airport? Far from the city?
    Or is it more like a quarantine stockade? Something stinks! Again!

  4. DeniseVB says:

    What Me Worry? Wouldn’t a leader want to seal our borders for a short amount of time til this raging, incurable virus be contained ? Between ebola and the kids’ virus, I don’t see the Obama’s visiting victims to assure us everything’s fine, nothing to worry about ? Or any politician for that matter being chirpy about we’ll be fine(dems) or seal the borders(gop) !

  5. votermom says:

    What’s interesting about the top graphic, imo, is that if you are in an Ebola hot zone in West Africa, you can only fly directly to four destinations: Ghana, the UK, France, and the USA.
    Nigeria pretty much halted their outbreak at 20 people infected from one Liberian, and they are only 1 hop (Ghana) away from West Africa.
    In short, the CDC head Friedan is full of BS when he says flight restrictions wont help.

    • Propertius says:

      There has to be an error there. The Dallas Ebola patient flew to the US by way of Brussels. At least that’s according to the official United representative on flyertalk.com. Besides, the borders of those countries are pretty porous – people have been leaving the hot zone by land for weeks.

      • votermom says:

        I wonder if it’s an old chart or if the chart is of flights that can be book with final destinations out of Africa. Like the Dallas Ebola guy – he only had a layover in Brussels – it’s not like he had to stay there to buy a new ticket.

        • Somebody says:

          He actually entered the US through Dulles in the DC area. He had a lay over there before flying to Dallas.

          • votermom says:

            yeah, he was Monrovia -> Brussels on Brussels Airlines (7 hour layover) -> Dulles on United Airlines (3 hour layover) then a United Airlines connection to Dallas.
            I think he was able to book all that as a single itinerary.

  8. votermom says:

    The news from Madrid is that 4 people are in isolation:
    the sick nurse’s assistant, and 3 without symptoms: the husband, a nurse who also had attended the already dead Ebola patient, and a Spanish engineer who recently returned from Nigeria (not sure why). 50 hospital workers are also being monitored.

    • Propertius says:

      There is a lot of traffic between Houston and Lagos due to the oil industry. I’m somewhat surprised a case hasn’t turned up there yet (at least that we know of). Supposedly, Nigeria has done a pretty good job of containing the epidemic and the case count is starting to subside there. That’s about the only good news we’ve heard so far.

      • votermom says:

        Yeah, they had one infected Liberian come in and they were able to stop the outbreak at 20 people with only 7 deaths.

        Speed is vital. Soon after Sawyerโ€™s death, President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency and the Lagos state government acted decisively to contain the virus. Protective gear, isolation tents, thermometers and millions of hand sanitisers were flown in. Health workers used contact tracing, isolation, treatment and massive public awareness campaigns to tackle the disease. Of 20 confirmed or probable cases, 12 recovered. At present, there are no known cases of the virus in Nigeria.

        This is how a leader who cares about his country acts. Which is good because if they had let it get loose Lagos, with its high-density slums, would have been wiped out.

      I thought it was going to be Obama.

    • leslie says:

      “Jackson shared a story about Jesus praying over the lepers in quarantine.
      ‘He was firm in his love for the person fighting the disease. We must have that same sense of love for Thomas, to embrace him and fight this disease,’ he said”

      So, I ask you, WHO is the person gonna embrace Thomas Duncan? Jackson? Obama?
      FLOTUS? the Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price? Who’s even gonna go into the room? I’m not going and I’m pretty compassionate, but I’m not stupid.

      Gotta go wash my hands again………….

    • Somebody says:

      That article really pissed me off. JJ is a complete and utter media whoring asshole. Her refers to Duncan as an American, Duncan is NOT an American. Then the paper gets in on the act claiming that Duncan moved to Dallas from Liberia a week before he got sick. Um, no he was supposedly visiting.

      I also love the local race baiter John Wiley Price a county commissioner who’s quoted as saying the “elephant in the room” is that “people that look like him that show up at the hospital without insurance are treated differently”. Really? What proof do you have of that Mr. Price? I’ll tell you absolutely none. I’ve spent a LOT of time in hospitals unfortunately and I’ve never seen anything approaching what this man suggests. If I were a medical professional or a hospital administrator in Dallas I’d be really pissed and I’d call this man on his bullshit. If I were the administrator where Duncan is I’d tell JJ to go piss up a rope……or maybe I’d let him visit Duncan sans the protective gear.

    • 49erDweet says:

      I’m confused. All I heard was “Jackson be heading to Dallas” and I thought we’d had another peaceful person go all John Galt again.

  10. votermom says:


    Ebola can only be spread once patients are symptomatic, so if you believe youโ€™ve been exposed, get all your errands and public trips out of the way before your symptoms start showing.

  11. Propertius says:

    What about the Hajj? It ends today (I think). A couple of million people (some from the hot zone) in very close quarters for a week and then returning to nearly every country on earth sounds like an ideal way to spread an epidemic:

    • DeniseVB says:

      I did say that ALL the germaphobes in the country are probably agreeing with his euthanasia suggestion ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yeah, they’ll pounce on any stupid thing a Republican says, it’s how Dems win elections.

      • Somebody says:

        I’m a germaphobe and I don’t agree with his ridiculous euthanasia ideas. I do want the border sealed, but hell I wanted that before ebola or any of the other diseases. I do want travel restrictions on people coming from infested areas too. In my opinion that’s just common sense, I guess some think it’s politically incorrect but I don’t.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Interesting, a germaphobe in the “irrational fear” clinical sense? Takes more than one shower a day, and never feels clean, constantly washing hands til they’re raw, no shoes in the house, avoid public places like malls and transportation(planes,trains,buses, city taxis) and has no pets? I was kinda going for the kind of germaphobe who won’t even touch a keyboard or a remote control. It’s a serious illness, but sorry if I offended, my bad.

          • Somebody says:

            I’m not clinical probably, except for the hand washing. It’s horrible my hands are always so dry, but I’ve recently found argan oil…….oh if any of you have dry hands get some argan oil. I usually only shower once a day though, unless I go somewhere or work outside in the yard. I do avoid public places as much as possible, but not completely. I don’t do public transportation of any kind, but I do fly……rarely…..like 4 times in my life rarely. I have always had pets though.

            I really didn’t have issues until my daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. The chemo knocks out their immune system. Leukemia patients can’t take neulasta or any of that kind of stuff because it’s a cancer of the immune system, they have to kill the immune system. My daughter was particularly sensitve to the chemo drugs, lots of side effects too. She had bouts of being critically neutropenic for the entire 2 and half years of her treatment. Most kids have that the first 6 months……most kids, she was outside the norm. When you’re critically neutropenic anything could potentially kill you, you have no defense. Anyway it was during her treatment I became manic about germs and sterilizing stuff, constant hand washing…..blah. I’m really not as bad as I used to be, I’ve relaxed since my daughter has been off treatment, especially around my house I only sanitize stuff like once a month now instead of weekly. I do get a little freakish during cold and flu season and I’ll run the other direction if I hear anybody sniffle, cough or sneeze. I also always clean my shopping carts and stuff.

            I’ve never had an issue with my keyboard or remote, but I clean them all the time, my phone too. Now a hospital or a hotel remote or keyboard…..that’s a different story, but I always go into a hospital or hotel room gloved and with cleaners. None of you should ever use a hotel or hospital remote or phone without cleaning it first. There have been all kinds of studies, trust me they’re germ central. The same goes for bed rails and light switches, those are things that normal cleaning crews don’t clean…..but I do. Meh, just find out where I’m going and check into a room behind me, LOL! I always leave a hotel room cleaner than I found it!!

          • leslie says:

I thought we’d lose it this year due to a bad statement on lady parts or Teh Gheys, didn’t realize genocide would be a factor. Oy.

  13. fernschild says:

    I became completely disenchanted with the CDC when their recommendation for controlling c-diff included using hand sanitizer. Since c-diff can be spread by spores, all you do with the gel is rearrange the spores on your hands. Not too swift, considering the gel can drip all over. I go to the World Health Organization instead, or another international source. The UK seems to be better with infection control as well.

    • Somebody says:

      You’re correct about c-diff and about the UK. I had an online friend that tragically passed away from lymphoma, but she was a specialist in infection/germ control. She worked for the NHS, retired and started a consulting company and traveled the world, interesting lady. She was so helpful when my daughter was in chemo and there were several cancer kids with c-diff so they were on the same floor. I know I ticked off more than a few of the nurses and a couple of doctors, but my kid never got c-diff.

  15. driguana says:

    Tonight will be a very special full, blood moon and a total lunar eclipse. If you are an animistic type person, as I tend to be (thanks to a deeply rooted, germanic grandmother and four years in the rainforests of Liberia), it will portend all kind of significance and other important earthly and astral signs. I witnessed around 45 full moons in Liberia and each one of them was an important event full of music, dancing, storytelling and drinking palm wine. There was also deep discussion among certain “zoes” who were allowed to be present….”witch doctors” as Andrea Tantaros referred to them on Fox. They are not “witch doctors”. They are skilled herbalists and sensitive people very familiar with the rainforest habitat and all of its creatures, plants and other denizens. Occasionally, a “ngamu”, or forest spirit, would come out and dance in its raffia whirls. I can pretty much guarantee you that this full moon tonight will be a very special one throughout Liberia as they contemplate their current situation with Ebola and the further destruction of their traditional ways. Blessings.

    • 1539days says:

      I hate to say this, but rain forests are nature’s Petri dishes. For all the natural diversity, there are any number of weird things like Ebola that can be created there.

      As far as herbalism, I think there’s value in it. What people eat on a day to day basis may be the biggest factor in their overall health.

      • driguana says:

        The people that I lived with in Liberia, the Kpelle people, were very skilled in their knowledge of herbs and forest medicinals. They had herbs and remedies that could heal snakebites (bad ones), scorpion bites, cool fevers from malaria and numerous ointments for skin ailments. Their way of saying “how are you” is “how is your skin?”. They had a certain stick that they cleaned their teeth with and no one ever had cavities. They used a certain kind of very hot pepper in their food, akin to habaneros, that apparently reduced heart problems.
        I posted an article the other day about an old traditional man that is burying Ebola victims. He rubs them with herbs before he buries them and uses the same herbs on himself and his workers. They have been doing this for weeks now. None of them have contracted Ebola. There must be some kind of resistance to it. Medical experts should be looking at everything.
        You’re right, rain forest’s are nature’s Petri dishes…

        • 1539days says:

          I think Hillary Clinton said something about eating hot peppers every day.

          Some of the medicine is unlocking herbal remedies, some if differnces in lifestyle. Less sugar leads to fewer cavities. The herb thing is interesting. It could be a contact antibiotic, like banana skin or something.

          Unfortunately, the advantages of plants and other natural products has been diluted by hucksters like Dr. Oz.

      It’s interesting that the Firestone Plantation is located in Harbel just next to the Robertsfield Intl airport 45 miles outside of Monrovia. I am wondering if there won’t be some kind of collaboration and some other reason why the US military located so far outside of Monrovia. Interesting article.

      • driguana says:

        This is really interesting. If you go to Google Maps and type in Harbel, Liberia…where Firestone is located, and zoom in, you will notice how well organized the Firestone community is and, therefore, much easier to organize and care for than many other areas of Liberia. For comparison, just go across the main highway from Harbel and you will see the organizational differences. Not sure what this means exactly, but I think it relates to ability to help and quarantine more people in a more compact and easier way…guess that’s important at this juncture. This area is where Firestone cultivates masses of rubber trees…

      FWIW, Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. has been a Japanese company since 1988.

Pain in the ass just shuts down in the middle of an email. iPod and phone are impossible to read I looked at other tablets but kindle allows you to store all digital content for free in their cloud. I was paying apple for storage but Amazon is cheaper for music and movies and it is again FREE.

He has medicare but also two other insurances. Fuck you doctor saying my dad and people like him who payed and pay taxes should take a back seat to someone from another country who willingly committed a crime to get healthcare from the American taxpayer who through integrity contributed to building the best health care system in the world. I have zero compassion for the Liberian tool who placed children in jeopardy. Who is paying for his care. I had to cash in on my 401k to pay for a hospital visit. I had to report everything I owned to get care. How much is this guy costing? I used travel zoo to buy a ticket from Liberia to Dallas without advance purchase. It was several thousand dollars. How did he swing that. Makes me wonder if this was all deliberate.

I will work with and spend what I have to but I just see no way out. One teacher who is quitting told me it is all designed so everybody gets a B. He claims A’s are impossible.

I tried shrinks and I cannot speak for anyone else but it was indulgent. I am maybe the worst person ever but I survive and I extend that passion to my peeps. Call me an as whole but my family comes first. I was taken down at the Pittsburgh Zoo because I tried to kill a man who was ogling my crud and called her sweet and tastes. I would have killed him and had no compunction. It is kind of vague but I have been told I went for the pigs throat. I AM NOT ashamed or riddled by guilt. I could have killed him and walked away singing Sun Shiny day by the Brady Bunch. He was a grown man hanging out in the diaper changing section of a bathroom..

    Again most of it is vague. I KNOW I WANTED to rip his throat out. I was very angry.
    I love bad tv and I love Netflix. When the fate of the entire world rests upon two vampires locked away in a cell for five years. How does paper scissors rock come into play?

    There is an incredible piece on The Daily Beast about Turkey kissing off the Kurds–haven’t mastered linking on ipad yet..this story is anger inducing–warning

    • Somebody says:

      I read that earlier and yes very anger inducing. There are a couple of similar articles out there that basically say not only Turkey but the US has kissed off the Kurds.

    So, I guess FLOTUS was on campus today (UIC). We received an all campus email telling us there was a “special guest” appearing at the Pavilion and that traffic might be tied up. I knew it wasn’t bronco, but really paid no attention to the message. Just now I went to a local news site to find out that FLOTUS was on campus (UIC) campaigning for Pat Quinn. So here is the link to the brief teevee news report. I’m posting it because of the photo and the comments – mostly the comments. It’s hard to believe they actually posted the comments.

      OUCH! No hometown love for Mooch huh? What’s up with that?

        I was surprised, too. Not only that, the crowd that they said was 5500 was not that large, and the traffic was never tied up. No shuttle buses needed diverting during the late afternoon. This is highly unusual for those royal visits.
        I guess the natives are onto the scammer-in-chief and his wife, and have had enough. ( I hope.)

    Drudge has a New York Times article front and center. What a disease that rag has become. Zero credibility. Wish the Post would offer a decent crossword puzzle . I cannot do that London one and local paper has the short bus and very old times puzzles. I can still remember every theme to an old puzzle. I am like the Mary Lou Henner of puzzles. Really miss it but ithe Times couldn’t even masquerade as a real news outlet these days.somehow they try to frame it all about an aware electorate for the golfers failures. Hmmm let’s stroll down memory lane and try to find one thing in six years that worked out. Cash for clunkers was a real gen. Sondra. AL Quid a on the run. School lunches. Zip zero nada nothing zilch is better now. I have asked my new Kindle to marry me and I think I can rely on my government to bash traditional marriage so I think I have a shot. Just to be careful I set all the language stuff to Spanish. Actually Brazilian Portuguese as there seems to be some latitude for South American kids. If Eric Holder fails me I will mail tablet to the worst place I can find roll it in excrement and then mail it back to myself. We will then be we’d. I registered at the app store

    Women are strange. BABY girl is only 8 but she has hundreds of shoes. I cannot even pronounce most but I know they are worth more than ten of me. Friends just send me stuff for her. I have one pair of sneakers that stink she has every color of every design. I wear used cardboard she does Dolce and Gambana. SO FUNNY I wrote used Cardhardt but my future wife made it cardboard. Brat has not yet worn the same outfit to school. More than forty days. She has 32 swim suits!! I give all her stuff to nuns but it confounds me how women give to a child.. I say she needs nothing drop some cash in her college account. THEN I get shoes and dresses and sheets. What 8 year old needs 5 thousand dollar Egyptian single thread gotten sheets. I am fine with Wal-Mart. Maybe it is my male dark skinned white pig of me but expensive sheets feel no different than the target stuff.

    My icky one never shuts up. She discovered night gown. The term perplexed her so she talked about it for hours. I can never ever shut up. I GO off on tangents all the time. Her mom and dad are daft she gives huge credence to nurture over nature.
