hate to be over there right now ,, gonna be some starving, freezing people
DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) -- Dark tunnels in the basement of a bombed-out hospital in the eastern city of Donetsk lead to a makeshift shelter. Opening the door hardly alleviates the gloom, for the only lighting inside is the flicker of handmade oil lamps.
The inhabitants move around like shadows, eyes dull and faces weary with hardship, dressed in several layers of worn-out sweatshirts, vests and jackets. The tiny rooms are lit with sunflower oil poured into saucers and set aflame.
These people took refuge in the abandoned hospital's basement after their own homes were destroyed. They are either too poor or old to flee the brutal separatist war that has ravaged Ukraine's east. Their dire situation is about to become much worse as Donetsk, which has lost nearly half of its 1 million-strong population, braces for winter. In eastern Ukraine, where temperatures typically stay below freezing all winter, damage to critical infrastructure and lack of adequate shelter for the newly homeless could mean death from cold for many.

might be in a for a real bitch of a winter if this keeps up
Just over two weeks ago I posted an article "The Day AfterTomorrow" Is the "Gulf Stream" stalling? a huge area of the Gulf Stream was showing a colder than normal sea surface anomaly while most of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere oceans were warmer than normal, I am not an expert by any means so I am quoting NOAA here: Analysis from NOAA satellites shows that sea surface temperatures in September 2014 were well above normal. In fact, 60% of the Northern Hemisphere ocean surface was 0.5°C or more above the 1981-2010 average. Intrigued I downloaded a screen grab from the Earth Wind Map below, which seemed to agree with the data from NOAA showing the sea surface temperature anomaly, see below, the huge area of blue being the area colder than normal, this was 11-10-14.
I went back to The Earth Wind Map today and to my shock and surprise I noticed the colder than normal area (Temperature Anomaly) had ballooned in size by nearly 300%, stretching from Iceland all the way down to the Canary Isles, (from Alaska to Mexico in comparison) see above! In just over two weeks the colder area has grown by literally thousands of square miles......27-10-14.

I guess those shit bags are here acting on there threats, Sad sad day!
One Soldier dead, many shots fired and one terrorist shot in Parlament hill inside the house!
They suspect 3 culrpits/terrorists.
Sad sad day, poor people! Sad for the soldier!
I wonder if Justin turdo took a bullet in the mouth?? One could hope so that next time he opens his stupid mouth about coddling terrrorists and hugging them he would have learned his lesson, who knows maybe this will have waken that stupid Libtard up - I hope so becuase this kind of shit is new to us in Canada but this shit has been happening for many many years in many countries, we as north americans are naive and think we are untouchable and nothing can happen here...SURPRISE Libtards it can happen here.
Don't kid yourself this kind of crap can happen anywhere in any city at any time for any of these deranged individuals minds reasons.
While I am writting this we just got confirmation that all CF bases are shut down and at 100% stand too!
There are 3 shooting incidents at 3 locations - Parliment hill/ Rideau center and the War memorial.
I think this is only the start adn not the end of this kind of cowardly attacks against civilians and one poor soldier who did nothing.
I hope they catch all of them and shoot them in the head so they can never do this shgit again and never see any trial or any judge, this shit has to stop.

US Holds Patent on Ebola: US Bio-War Researchers in Ebola Zone
What are US bio-war researchers doing in the Ebola zone?
This is a call for an immediate, thorough, and independent investigation of Tulane University researchers (see here and here) and their Fort Detrick associates in the US biowarfare research community, who have been operating in West Africa during the past several years.
What exactly have they been doing?
Exactly what diagnostic tests have they been performing on citizens of Sierra Leone?
Why do we have reports that the government of Sierra Leone has recently told Tulane researchers to stop this testing?
Have Tulane researchers and their associates attempted any experimental treatments (e.g., injecting monoclonal antibodies) using citizens of the region? If so, what adverse events have occurred?
The research program, occurring in Sierra Leone, the Republic of Guinea, and Liberia—said to be the epicenter of the 2014 Ebola outbreak—has the announced purpose, among others, of detecting the future use of fever-viruses as bioweapons.
Is this purely defensive research? Or as we have seen in the past, is this research being covertly used to develop offensive bioweapons?
For the last several years, researchers from Tulane University have been active in the African areas where Ebola is said to have broken out in 2014.

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.
