well if this shit goes airborne ya had better kiss yer ass goodbye ..I read just the other day that it could be up to 1.7 billion affected in 12 months

September 2014 – HEALTH – Healthcare workers play a very important role in the successful containment of outbreaks of infectious diseases like Ebola. The correct type and level of personal protective equipment (PPE) ensures that healthcare workers remain healthy throughout an outbreak—and with the current rapidly expanding Ebola outbreak in West Africa, it’s imperative to favor more conservative measures. The precautionary principle—that any action designed to reduce risk should not await scientific certainty—compels the use of respiratory protection for a pathogen like Ebola virus that has: •No proven pre- or post-exposure treatment modalities. •A high case-fatality rate. •Unclear modes of transmission. We believe there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles both near and at a distance from infected patients, which means that healthcare workers should be wearing respirators, not facemasks. The minimum level of protection in high-risk settings should be a respirator with an assigned protection factor greater than 10. A powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) with a hood or helmet offers many advantages over an N95 filtering face-piece or similar respirator,

well this shit is just about out of hand is it not ??

September 2014 – AFRICA – Officials in Guinea searching for a team of health workers and journalists who went missing while trying to raise awareness of Ebola have found several bodies. A spokesman for Guinea’s government said the bodies included those of three journalists in the team. They went missing after being attacked on Tuesday in a village near the southern city of Nzerekore. More than 2,600 people have now died from the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. It is the world’s worst outbreak of the deadly disease, with officials warning that more than 20,000 people could ultimately be infected. The three doctors and three journalists disappeared after being pelted with stones by residents when they arrived in the village of Wome – near where the Ebola outbreak was first recorded. One of the journalists managed to escape and told reporters that she could hear the villagers looking for them while she was hiding. A government delegation, led by the health minister, had been dispatched to the region but they were unable to reach the village by road because a main bridge had been blocked.

(NaturalNews) Based on its current rate of spread, the West African Ebola outbreak is expected to surge in the coming weeks, according to a new study published in the journal PLOS Currents: Outbreaks. Researchers from Northeastern University in Boston have projected that as many as 10,000 cases of Ebola will be confirmed by September 24, with about 5,000 of these resulting in death.

Using the Global Epidemic and Mobility Model as a benchmark, Marcelo F. C. Gomes and his colleagues estimated the likelihood of disease spread with 3,362 subpopulations in 220 countries. This included looking at daily airline passenger traffic worldwide as well as disease spread within hospitals, at funerals and within entire communities.

With a reproductive number (Re) of 1 representing the tipping point at which disease spreads -- anything higher than 1 means that the outbreak will continue to spread, while anything less means that it is being contained -- the team estimates the current Ebola outbreak to be between 1.5 and 2.0. In the short term, this means continued and increasing spread throughout West Africa.

In the long term, international spread is also a possibility, with the strong likelihood of exponential growth if the situation is not contained sooner rather than later. As far as Liberia is concerned, where a bulk of the current outbreak is occurring, the figures don't look very promising -- the number of dead over the past several months could more than double in just a few weeks.

"The numbers are really scary," stated Alessandro Vespignani, a physicist at Northeastern and author of the study. "We all hope to see this NOT happening."

CR NEWS- SEP 10 2014- A geocentric (Earth-directed) X1.6 magnitude Solar Flare and Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) is hurling towards the north central portion of Earth and is expected to arrive between 15:00-19;00 hours PST and CST. The expected trajectory puts the North Pacific Ocean and Hawaiian Pacific Region, North American West Coast including the San Andreas Fault, Guerrero Trench as well as the Transversal Volcanic Range in Central Mexico in the bull’s eye of this massive Solar Event.

A seismic alert should is being issued for up to 96 hours after initial impact on 9/11 PST, CST and EST.

What is atypical of this event is the clear Heart image that formed at approximately 19.47° Latitude North on the Solar Surface. The filter of the image below denotes a blood red sun and a heart at Solar Spot 2158. This same spot, oddly looks like the Hawaiian island chain. Geomagnetic vortexes such as the Popocatepetl Volcano and Kilauea are at this very line.

WASHINGTON (AP) — An extreme solar flare is blasting its way to Earth and could mess up some power grids, satellites and radio transmissions, scientists say.

It's been several years since Earth has had a solar storm of this size coming from sunspots smack in the middle of the sun, said Tom Berger, director of the Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colorado.

Solar storms happen often, especially during peaks in the solar cycle, and don't directly harm people. But what makes this one more worrisome is its location on the sun along with its strength, he said.

"There's been a giant magnetic explosion on the sun," Berger said. "Because it's pointed right at us, we'll at least catch some of the cloud" of highly energized and magnetized plasma that can disrupt Earth's magnetic sphere, which sometimes leads to temporary power grid problems.

Forecasters don't yet know when Wednesday's solar storm will arrive here and which part of the planet will be facing the sun and bear the brunt of the effects. It could arrive as early as Thursday morning or may take a few days.

Berger said scientists will have a better idea after they get more satellite data. The first part of the storm, which arrives in only a few minutes, has already affected radio transmissions. It can also damage satellites.

The flare is considered "extreme" on forecasters' scale, but just barely so, Berger said.

On the plus side, sun flares expand the colorful northern lights so people farther south can see them..

Doctors in several U.S. states are reporting an unusual spike in respiratory illnesses that have sent dozens of children to hospital with breathing problems.
And one expert says it’s “pretty likely” that the virus responsible for those illnesses will make its way to Canada, if it hasn’t already.
Dr. Anne Schuchat, the director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told reporters Monday that they began receiving reports in August of a high number of children being admitted to hospitals with severe breathing problems. More than half the children had asthma or a history of wheezing.

 Enterovirus D68 mysterious respiratory illness
A mysterious respiratory illness has sent hundreds of children to hospital in ten U.S. states.
Lab testing revealed that many of the children were infected with Enterovirus D68 -- a rare, but not new, virus that causes symptoms similar to a cold but then worsens.
The first reports came from Chicago and Kansas City, but the CDC says it has since received requests for assistance from 12 states to investigate clusters of illness there, too.
Dr. Neil Rau, a Canadian infectious disease specialist, said “there’s a possibility” that he has already seen a few cases of Enterovirus D68 in Ontario without realizing it.
“Anecdotally, I’ve seen a fair bit of kids and adults with illness that could be compatible with this,” he told CTV News Channel Monday.
He said Enterovirus D68 is spreading quickly because it’s in the same family as the common cold virus.
One hospital in Denver, Children's Hospital Colorado, says that in the last three weeks, they've seen more than 900 children in their emergency room with symptoms. Of them, more than 80 children had to be admitted.

not really a joke but ....

By: Anthony Garreffa
This just in: North Korea has landed a man on the Sun. 17-year-old Hung Il Gong started his journey at 3am this morning, travelling alone, to reach our nearest star, a journey that took him just 4 hours.
A North Korean central news anchorman said during a live broadcast: “We are very delighted to announce a successful mission to put a man on the sun. North Korea has beaten every other country in the world to the sun. Hung Il Gong is a hero and deserves a hero’s welcome when he returns home later this evening”.
Hung is expected back on Earth in just a few hours time, where he will be greeted by his uncle, and supreme leader: Kim Jong-un. Hung traveled in the cover of darkness, as it would protect him from the harsh, and extreme temperatures of the Sun. Hung will also be bringing back some sun spot samples for his uncle, which I’m sure he will show off to the world in a short amount of time.
The North Korean central news agency is calling the 18-hour mission the “greatest human achievement of our time” – and so they should, landing a man on the Sun, a trip that took 18 hours return, is quite the achievement, all things considered. I wonder if Dennis Rodman considered this a slam dunk for the country.

The Grand Finale: Behind The Green Door (a Major Update)
November 15th, 2013

Behind The Green Door

“Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it…” ~ Sara Shepard
Consider where we were in September of 2013…

1.) They were still talking about possibly implementing the new Basel III banking regulations in Q4 of 2013.

2.) A late August chemical attack (which turned out to be a false flag) in Syria had Obama talking about taking the United States, and anyone who was dumb enough to follow us again, back into war in the Middle East.

3.) The Government Shutdown and talk of a U.S. Default loomed on the Horizon.

4.) The Federal Reserve was talking seriously about ending QE to Infinity (so much so they advertised to the financial media that is was a done deal).

The table was set, the players were in place, and the fat lady was warming up.

Then poof, within a span of two weeks it was all pulled back…

Obama, in the face of world discontent, actually did something unheard of for his administration; he decided to obey the Constitution and ceded his war powers back to Congress. Regulators decided that the banks were behind on Basel III implementation so they pushed it back to the beginning of 2014. The Fed decided the economy, which they had been advertising as being in a full and sustainable recovery, was too fragile to taper QE at this time (despite the indisputable fact that QE was showing a severe decline into a negative rate of return). Then last, but not least, the Government Shutdown ended uneventfully, except for the convenient fact that lawmakers gave the Government the power of unlimited borrowing for four full months. (Oct 13 thru Feb 14).

“I, like God, do not play with dice, or believe in coincidence…” ~ V for Vendetta

So what happened? Why did they take the controlled demolition of the world economy off of the table? In talking with my friend at the Dallas Federal Reserve a few things in the thinking of the Fed have become apparent.

1.) The Taper of QE to Infinity is inexorably tied to Basel III, though they don’t have to begin at precisely the same time.

2.) The Banks were not ready for Basel III or Taper in Q4 2013.

Remember in my original Grand Finale thread where I said the world economic crash would be a “controlled demolition”, well some of the workers were still in the building when the charges were set to go off…

Mission abort!

But make no mistake, the demolition is not off, it has merely been postponed.

And the top of the pyramid at the Federal Reserve, in classic banking fashion, used the opportunity of everything being in place in Sept 2013 as a “test run” or a “stress test” to find weaknesses in their plan. Where were the hot spots, would the markets react in a predictable way, or would they go off the reservation? How would the political structures of the world react to the possibility of war and a United States default? Did the major banks have enough Capital and Liquidity built up under the tenants of Basel III to withstand the stresses of an economic collapse and market failure? Who would survive, and were they the right someone’s to survive?

The lessons learned were invaluable for them. These are also lessons we had also better take into consideration going forward if we wish to survive.

Because quietly and inevitably the Middle-East is heating up again, the Fed is talking about tapering again (after re-loading their Capital at taxpayer expense of course), Basel III is on for implementation on January 1, 2014, and shortly thereafter the Government will be entering another “Shutdown” crisis in February of 2014. The entire scenario is playing out all over again, the question is; will they pull the trigger this time, or back off again.

I would argue that the dry run stress test is done, the results are in, and it’s time for the controlled demolition to begin, and here is why.

First, the Government has given itself unlimited borrowing authority until February, 2014. They have purchased bullets and beans; hired extra security, stockpiled resources and man power around the country, and they are currently borrowing extra money to hoard cash for the coming calamity.

Second, Basel III implementation is on, and even the smaller banks have now had a full year to prepare for it. Because as I argued in my original Grand Finale thread, the key to all of this, and one of the primary things to watch for, is the full and final implementation of phase I of Basel III. Because you must understand, Basel III was never meant to help the world economy, in fact it will destroy the economy by finally causing the credit crisis they have been preparing for since 2008. Basel III regulations are entirely meant to prepare the banks to either survive or be eaten by bigger banks in an economic crash to end all economic crashes. They make it easier for smaller banks to be bailed-in, and/or liquidated, and they make it easier for the larger banks to feed off of the smaller ones. Basel III will also make it much easier for the powers that be to steal 401k’s, IRA’s and Pension Funds. This is the sum total of these regulations, nothing more. This is the foundation they will build from when the controlled demolition is complete, and it is a foundation built on the bones of the people of the world.

So as September/October, 2013 begins to replay itself in late Q4, 2013 and Q1, 2014, here is what I urge you to look for and be cognizant of. Basel III is currently slated for full implementation in January of 2014, so watch for any changes in that, AND watch the yield on the benchmark 10 Year Treasury Note, 3.00% is your warning siren, prepare yourself. And if that yield stays in the 3.25 to 3.50 range for a couple of consecutive days, it’s go time.

People ask me all the time if I’m ready to, “call it”?

If 10 Yr. Treasury Note Yields rise to and stay in the 3.25 to 3.50% range for a couple of consecutive days, don’t wait for me to call it, everything I laid out in The Grand Finale, an Economic Love Story or Fifty Shades of Green is about to come to pass, so…consider it called.

A NASA spacecraft has spotted a “potentially hazardous” asteroid nearly half a mile wide barreling in the general direction of Earth.

The asteroid, named “2013 YP139″, is very dark, 0.4 miles across, and could come almost as close to the Earth as our moon, based on current projections. The rock has earned NASA’s “potentially hazardous” distinction due to its size and projected flight path.

But there’s no need to call Bruce Willis and the rest of the team from “Armageddon” just yet. The asteroid is still 27 million miles away from Earth, and won’t get here for another hundred years at least.

The CDC is currently investigating an alarming outbreak of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae — or CRE — that has infected 44 people in Illinois over the last year. While that number may seem small, how the disease is clustered, and the fact that similar pockets are showing up throughout the country has the CDC and other medical professionals very worried.
Another troubling trend, one that could have dire consequences, is how CRE and a number of other superbugs, bacteria that have become resistant to even the strongest antibiotics, can share its resistance genes with other bacteria. If these bacteria start sharing that resistance with common bacteria like as Strep and E.coli, we could be in for a world of hurt.
Once easily treated conditions could become entirely untreatable – turning things like urinary tract infections, sinus infections, and even diarrhea into a potentially fatal condition.
Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told USA Today that he believes we have only a narrow “window of opportunity” to act before these superbugs become unstoppable.
Unfortunately, there’s very little financial incentive for the drug companies to develop new antibiotics, and there are very few new treatments being developed.
Pandemics & Superbugs: One of the top threats we face.
We’ve covered similar topics in the past, mainly because I believe the threat of a deadly pandemic outbreak is on the top threats we face. The way we work, travel, and even buy our food has left us incredibly susceptible to outbreaks; and in my opinion, it’s only a matter of time before we see another pandemic.
But unlike past pandemics, I think the next deadly outbreak will be far worse than anything we’ve ever seen, particularly because of how connected the world has become. Diseases that were once able to burn themselves out, because populations stayed relatively close to home, can now be spread anywhere in the world within a matter of hours.
What can you do to prevent Superbugs & Pandemics?

Every day Fairewinds Energy Education receives many questions. The big question in the New Year is: “Should I take a ‘radiation pill’ to combat the radiation being given off by the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi?”
First, lets start by defining a radiation protection pill is and what it does. A radiation protection pill is usually called potassium iodide because it consists of potassium iodide KI which is the scientific notation for this molecule consisting of the elements potassium (K) and iodine (I). Unfortunately, potassium iodide only protects against one type of radiation, radioactive iodine. It does not protect against the hundreds of other radioactive isotopes released in nuclear meltdowns.

How does a potassium iodide (KI) pill work? Your thyroid routinely absorbs iodine (I), non-radioactive iodine that is! Natural [non-radioactive] iodine is added to ordinary table salt to help give your thyroid gland the iodine it needs to function correctly.

During a nuclear accident or meltdown like those at Fukushima Daiichi an enormous amount of radioactive iodine is emitted for 90-days and then it is gone from the environment, unless there is a new meltdown. When radioactive Iodine (I) is being released during a nuclear accident or meltdown, and at that time only, it is important to prevent your thyroid from absorbing the radioactive iodine, so it is a good idea to take potassium iodide (KI) pills. These pills will saturate your thyroid with good non-radioactive iodine and prevent the radioactive iodine from being absorbed.

To be effective, the KI pills must be taken shortly after the beginning of an accident. That way the good, non-radioactive iodine gets to your thyroid before the radioactive variety arrives.

How long should I take KI? Shouldn’t I continue forever since radiation lasts for 250,000 years? Two words of caution:

1.   Radioactive iodine has a half-life of 8 days, so it completely decays away [dissipates] in 90 days or less. Taking KI pills for more than 90 days is a waste of money and is also potentially very dangerous to your health.
2.   KI pills can have negative health side effects in some people and should not be taken unless a severe nuclear accident is in progress near where you live. We considered using KI in Vermont after the Fukushima accident, but chose not to because the risks outweighed the potential benefits. See side effects: via google at http://www.webmd.com/drugs/drug-1823-potassium+iodide+Oral.aspx or http://www.drugs.com/sfx/potassium-iodide-side-effects.html .

Many countries stockpile potassium iodide pills near nuclear facilities or nuclear weapon target areas in order to protect public health and safety. In case there is a nuclear accident or nuclear war, the pills can quickly be distributed to protect peoples’ thyroid glands. Unfortunately, after the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi, even though KI was readily available nearby, Japanese government officials did not release most of it in time to help or at all due to conflicting orders by different branches of government.

Stockpiling KI pills in the US has been an issue with the NRC for decades. Former NRC attorney Peter Crane was a hero when he petitioned the NRC to take action. It is only suggested that nuclear facilities, states, or communities near by, stockpile KI in case of an accident or meltdown. http://www.ki4u.com/crane.htm – 4

Finally, there is no protection against the hundreds of other radioactive isotopes released following an accident or meltdown. White protective suits worn by the workers at Fukushima prevent hot particles from touching the workers’ skin. The gamma rays from the radiation on the site pass right through the suits and irradiate the workers. Moreover, the radiation plume moving offsite knows no boundaries and will meander wherever the weather pushes the radioactive plume, thus impacting many people considered outside the radiation path, until they have been exposed. Unlike oil or chemical fires that smoke and may been seen for miles, radiation cannot be seen, so people do not know they are being exposed.

Lastly, some medical doctors are working on ways of helping people recover from some radiation exposures. For example, Dr. John Apsley in Seattle, Washington, has been working with cancer patients to help them recover from medical radiation. He has applied that methodology to the possibility of radiation exposure from the Fukushima Daiichi triple meltdown. Fairewinds Energy Education has listed his book on its website booklist: Fukushima Meltdown & Modern Radiation: Protecting Ourselves and Our Future Generations Dr. John Apsley, 2011. Dr. Apsley explains the health risks of nuclear power with emphasis on the implications of the Fukushima incident. He presents ways to protect and detoxify our bodies from the harmful effects of radiation.

Turner Radio Network (TRN) has issued a report regarding Fukushima Diachi Nuclear Plant that is expected to affect the entire Northern Hemisphere.
According to the report: “Persons residing on the west coast of North America should IMMEDIATELY begin preparing for another possible onslaught of dangerous atmospheric radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster site in Japan.”
TEPCO has confirmed that via camera surveillance, that steam has begun to pour from Reactor 3, although they have “not been identified abnormal plant conditions.”
TEPCO are reporting that “radioactive steam has suddenly begun emanating from previously exploded nuclear reactor building #3 at the Fukuishima disaster site in Japan.”
The corporation is not clear on the details of the sudden change at Reactor 3 because of “lethal radiation levels in that building.”
Summations from experts conclude that this may “be the beginning of a ‘spent fuel pool criticality (meltdown)’ involving up to 89 TONS of nuclear fuel burning up into the atmosphere and heading to North America.”
Steam has been viewed coming from Reactor 3.
Educated guesses suggest that the steam is “coming from what’s left of the fifth floor of the mostly-destroyed building.”

the lack of sun spots and the end of solar cycle 24 .. were in for a doozy ..


The announcement made on 14 June (18:00 UK time) comes from scientists at the US National Solar Observatory (NSO) and US Air Force Research Laboratory. Three different analyses of the Sun’s recent behaviour all indicate that a period of unusually low solar activity may be about to begin.

***

This could have major implications for the Earth’s climate. According to a statement issued by the NSO, announcing the research:

An immediate question is whether this slowdown presages a second Maunder Minimum, a 70-year period with virtually no sunspots [which occurred] during 1645-1715.

As NASA notes:

Early records of sunspots indicate that the Sun went through a period of inactivity in the late 17th century. Very few sunspots were seen on the Sun from about 1645 to 1715. Although the observations were not as extensive as in later years, the Sun was in fact well observed during this time and this lack of sunspots is well documented. This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the “Little Ice Age” when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes. There is evidence that the Sun has had similar periods of inactivity in the more distant past.

During the Maunder Minimum and for periods either side of it, many European rivers which are ice-free today – including the Thames – routinely froze over, allowing ice skating and even for armies to march across them in some cases.

“This is highly unusual and unexpected,” says Dr Frank Hill of the NSO. “But the fact that three completely different views of the Sun point in the same direction is a powerful indicator that the sunspot cycle may be going into hibernation.”

Lifespan of radioactive isotopes and other trivia

Among other dangerous radioactive isotopes released from the Fukushima meltdown, iodine-129 also spewed forth from the damaged reactor. Incredibly, this isotope has a half-life of 16 million years. Essentially, the entire West Coast food supply of North America will be contaminated with radiation for unlimited generations. We have fundamentally entered into a new way of life - one that takes a giant leap toward illness, disease and heightened mortality rates.

Consider the water supply. Not only does it provide drinking water for humans and animals, but it also irrigates crops. When the supply is contaminated, it influences everything. According to a public health statement made by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR):

"Iodine in the oceans enters the air from sea spray or as iodine gases. Once in the air, iodine can combine with water or with particles in the air and can enter the soil and surface water, or land on vegetation when these particles fall to the ground or when it rains. Iodine can remain in soil for a long time because it combines with organic material in the soil. It can also be taken up by plants that grow in the soil. Cows or other animals that eat these plants will take up the iodine in the plants. Iodine that enters surface water can reenter the air as iodine gases."

The question is, does radioactive iodine spread in the same manner as its natural counterpart? Unfortunately, the answer is an unequivocal "yes." The agency continues:

"Radioactive iodine also forms naturally from chemical reactions high in the atmosphere. Most radioactive forms of iodine change very quickly (seconds to days) to stable elements that are not radioactive. However, one form, 129I, changes very slowly (millions of years), and its levels build up in the environment."

Before packing up and relocating to Antarctica, a few options are available that can drastically reduce exposure to these harmful elements.

Protect and detoxify

Here are several precautions that can help shield individuals from a radioactive food supply:

- View all fish and crustaceans from the Pacific Ocean as tainted.

- Always use filtered water for cooking and drinking.

- Pay attention to the origin of dairy.

- Wash any produce thoroughly with natural soap and rinse with purified water.

- Avoid meat from contaminated regions (including wild game).

In a report, Israeli analyst Yaakov Lappin said Israel was preparing for air and ground operations that would destroy Hizbullah’s strategic capabilities.
“The Israel Defense Forces has prepared for a combined air and large-scale ground operation, driven by new intelligence and precision-firepower capabilities, to deliver a knock-out blow and eliminate Hizbullah as a fighting force for years to come,” the report, titled “Israel vs. the Iran-Hizbullah Axis,” said.
The report, released before the latest attacks from Lebanon, said both Israel and Hizbullah were engaged in a long-term military buildup. Lappin, a defense reporter for the Jerusalem Post, said the buildup was meant to prepare for an imminent war that could include massive Hizbullah missile and rocket strikes on the Jewish state.
