This is a stunning development, and after being castigated for making her own choice, it appears she chose to ask CDC for the definitive word instead of making her own decision.

So they're trying to get us all killed.


No Lauren, they're not. Not exactly.


They would have been DELIGHTED if their flimsy-assed plan worked. They really would. A few people show up sick - local medical staff take care of it - and all good. See - you crazy ass wing nuts. Stop being so paranoid.


BUT - since that didn't work - they move on to Narrative B. A few people die - just a matter of messaging. Now it's a problem to be managed and spun.


And if things truly spin out of control ? Who cares ? There's nothing worth controlling anyway. That's their mentality. I'm sure of it.

123 The CDC is just not to be believed but this woman was a supposedly trained professional. She couldn't make the decision for herself that she might be contagious with the start of a fever! Didn't the man she took care of just die!? She still decided to travel with a fever and possibly infect others. I don't feel sorry for her, I feel sorry for the others on that plane. Another example of the government has my best interest at heart.

ScoggDog,



But how do you spin "the nurse called us with a fever and we said "no biggie"" Even for this admin, I'd say that's unspinnable.


Again, Laura, spin to whom ? That shit's not going on CNN tomorrow.


If they get this under control, they tout the primacy of their position. If they don't get it under control, they really don't fucking care. Who gives a shit about controlling The United States of Ebola ?


What I wonder ... as always ... is why they thing they'll survive. They don't have the stones of the Goebbels. They just don't. They think they have a back-door out. And the "they" includes Republicans.

And they are not responsible if you act on their advice. You're still liable if you fuck up and trust them.

Several months ago upon hearing about Ebola on the news:

"Mommy, what's Ebola?"

"It's a virus that makes you really sick."

"Am I going to get really sick?"

"Probably not, it's only in Africa right now, and only a few countries there."

"So they can't come over here, right?"

199 Let's look at the evidence here:

1) Duncan knows he has been exposed to Ebola, but 'suddenly' gets the idea to fly around the world, to Dallas, no less, in a hugely conservative Republican state.

2) Who pays for Duncan's last minute, multi-leg international trip?

3) Where is there any news about Duncan's supposed "family" who we were told were staying with him in the apartment? Are they sick? Why not?

4) The N-factor for Ebola in plague stricken Liberia and Sierra Leone, with crap healthcare facilities, is 2. In Dallas, Texas, in a modern hospital with state of the art facilities, it is also 2. WTF?

5) Nurse decides, after treating a dying Ebola patient, that her next step should be public transportation. Can anyone truly be that stupid? Or was she told, specifically, when and where to go?

6) Who paid for nurse dumbass's plane tickets?

7) Who paid the lease on Duncan's "apartment" where he stayed?

How can any clear thinking American see all of this and not conclude that it is anything BUT a purposeful attempt to kill Americans?

9) If not purposeful, then as I said above, our country cannot survive this level of stupid.

I give her credit for calling for direction. But she couldn't use her own judgment here? She was in direct contact treating the Dallas guy and a few days later develops a fever. Another nurse treating the guy was diagnosed with the disease. What kind of freaking mental midget is she? Call the CDC and they say no worries, and she's like, ok cool. You gotta be kidding me. Anyone here in that same scenario would be totally freaking out. No doubt she turned over any mental faculties she had to the chocolate jesus and his apostle Friedman.

You know, this is a perfect opportunity for the GOP to do a little election season grandstanding, maybe push through a bill requiring travel restrictions. Show the country some needed leadership where Obama won't.

No, that is part of the problem.

Their purpose is to present papers explaining why gun control is a public health issue and why lesbian obesity is the result of heteronormative discrimination.

I really hate to say this but....she also had a responsibility to NOT get on that plane. I know, I know, CDC told her it was OK and she's now sick with Ebola but c'mon...she treated the guy, she's a nurse, she knew she had a fever. At no time did it occur to her NOT to fly?

Well, that's how "medical mistakes" happen. Not every nurse, technician or doctor for that matter , graduates first in their class.
I know health care professionals that are as much like sheep as anyone else. Do exactly as their told without ever thinking on their own, or ever considering that possibly the procedure or process is wrong, needs improved, etc.
Even in the medical profession, there are those who simply consider it a job and do the least they can to put in their 8 hour shift. It's not the norm, but those people are there.

Granted, her viral load was not as high with "just" a low grade temp. I guess. Time will tell.

I did hear, today, that Susan Rice went on the Sunday shows and yapped about Turkey being on board with the coalition and Turkey calling and saying, "Nope!" That did make me laugh. But otherwise, I got nothing.

So like Shep Smith, they wanted to play it all cool--and tamp down on the story so they told her--

"Don't worry about it --fly on back to Dallas."

So they did the math, they played the odds, the made the bet on green, and now when the--

Ebola Craps wheel-

lands on RED and they got the POSITIVE Ebola test back--

the shit hit the fan.

That hospital has to be toast. How many admissions do you think they've had during the past week or so? Would you want anything done there? I'd be like "Hell, no, doctor, perform my colonscopy or my stet in your living room if you have to but I really don't want to go near that hospital."

That's another way even a handful of cases will have a massive impact - neither staff nor patients will want to go near those hospitals.

MMAFighting.com @MMAFighting
Chael Sonnen on drug-test failures: 'I'm not going to apologize because I'm not sorry' (@davedoylemma) sbnation.com/e/6748482

"People were saying, 'why won't he say he's sorry?' I'm not," said Sonnen. "I'm not going to apologize because I'm not sorry. I'm a consenting adult. I knew exactly what I was doing. This was a premeditated decision."


"Here's the problem, is that it worked," said Sonnen, who made his MMA debut in 1997. "The problem is, it helps. There's a term out there, performance enhancing drug. The reality is, it's all medicine. All medicine is made to make you better. If it did the opposite, it would be malpractice. You're not going to the doctor to say give me something to make me worse. i was taking things and they were making me feel a little better."


"If you're going to try to get away with something, if you're beat, you're beat," Sonnen said. "There's nothing more to it, there's nothing more to the story. I took something, I was caught, I got tarnished and that's it."

I have a lot of pity for Patient #2 and all nurses and docs on the front lines who had inadequate equipment. I don't get it. I really don't. In 2001 our hospital was ready for the worst possible scenario like this. Complacency? This post-Bush era is fabulous with "stay calm" at the golf cart in his effing windbreaker.
I do know that this wonderful administration did away with a law in 2010 about, uh, stopping flights from countries that endanger us with disease. It was one of those pesky W. Bush laws. We don't want to hurt feelings!

441 Well they have well and truly squandered all the respect the CDC used to have. Woodrow Wilson at least had the excuses of WWI and scientists truly not understanding things. Hence 50 million died worldwide in the 1918-1919 time frame.

So the final lesson of 1918, a simple one yet the one most difficult to execute, is that those who occupy positions of authority must lessen the panic that alienate the members of a society. A society that takes as its motto. "every man for himself" is no longer a civilized society.

Those in authority must retain the public's trust. The way to do that is to distort nothing, to put the best face on nothing, to try to manipulate no one. Lincoln said that first, and best.

A leader must make whatever horror exists concrete. Only then will people be able to break it apart.

475 I work for my local city government & have had to be in touch with the state health office re: Ebola and I can tell everyone a couple of things.
1. The state health offices are in over their heads -- their usual job is administering federal programs like WIC and Medicaid not dealing with epidemics. Bureaucrats, IOW.
2. While they were all towing the White House party line a week ago with the "all is well!," now that chit has gotten real with the 2 nurses have contracted Ebola in Dallas they are taking it seriously, getting the info needed to conduct training with hospital staffs and first responders.

No, it's not. One of Denmarks's legislators is attempting to have a bill passed that would make sex with an animal illegal. Right now in Denmark, Hungary, and Sweden, it is not.

He's associating bestiality with studies that show it is correlated with human sexual abuse and assault.
And he is also embarrassed that in a civilized society, this would be tolerated.

Because animals can't say no......

484 I really hate to say this but....she also had a responsibility to NOT get on that plane. I know, I know, CDC told her it was OK and she's now sick with Ebola but c'mon...she treated the guy, she's a nurse, she knew she had a fever. At no time did it occur to her NOT to fly
-**********
Sure it occurred to her but even nurses are not experts on emerging diseases never before seen in the us. Her instincts were not to fly and she called the experts or what she thought were the experts. She probably won't infect anyone if she was in the early stage, maybe the disease load was low enough. But I don't blame her for believing the cdc. They are supposed to know.

I blame then entirely for being lazy, incompetent idiots. For mishandling this entire thing. For being responsible for her getting a deadly disease by recommending bad protocols.

Should she be less trusting in the future? Sure. Absolutely. But right now let's just hope these idiots at cdc didn't get her or anyone else killed.

May not be too far from the truth..., consider the job description as posted at the .gov site. Now a job description ought to be gender-neutral.

553 End of Civilization Sing-a-Long!

I caught a little bug at Texas Presbyterian
Working a man who had jumped the borders from Liberia
L-i-b-e-r-i-a Liberia
He had a little cough and some mucus too,
I asked the doc its name and in a raspy voice he said "Ebola"
E-b-o-l-a Ebola,
la-la-la-la Ebola

Well I'm not the worlds most intelligent nurse
But the CDC said I could put the thermo back in my purse
"It's not Ebola" E-b-o-l-a Ebola
Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand
why that admin's standing there, a clipboard in hand
Oh Ebola
la-la-la-la Ebola,
la-la-la-la Ebola

So I drank some Tussin with a compress all night,
Didn't think I should skip my flight
It gave me the hives, and made my eyes bleed
And I'm hearing Death- "won't you come home with me"
Well I'm not the world's most intelligent nurse
I've got a sinking feeling I'm winding up in a hurse from Ebola
la-la-la-la Ebola, la-la-la-la Ebola
They sent me away
Wrapped up in a bag
If I'm not wailing now,
I'm retching on my knees
And I'm staring down Death and he at me...

Well that's the way I guess it must stay
But I wish it didn't have to be this way from Ebola
la-la-la-la Ebola,
It's getting rough now and it burns to pee,
And the survival rate is 30 versus 70 from Ebola
la-la-la-la Ebola

Well I flew home just last weekend
Didn't know fate was clenching my hand
With Ebola having a hold on me,
And proving the joke's on the CDC

Well I'm not smart but I know I'm gonna die,
Last wish is to hock a loogie up in Friedman's eye
with Ebola

I'm sure there are other reasons besides this for the Obama's actions.

What if the way they're acting and what they do, is that how they've seen what white Presidents and the First lady do? So they're doing it too?

Almost as parody. First Ladies are noted for having these little social causes and maybe a program or two inspired by her or backed by her.
Presidents go golfing and run around to different countries sucking up to other white leaders to no apparent good. And as far as policy, how many Presidents would appear to have done the world any good to those who have a bias against Republicans and have few Democrats to emulate.

Check out wood gas, otherwise known as syn gas or producer gas. You make it by heating up wood in a closed metal container. It is a combination of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. You can burn it to heat things up. You can also use it to power internal combustion engines when there is no gasoline available.


If you are trying to burn bodies, the trick is to get the fat burning and that takes a significant amount of wood. They usually try to drain out the fluids in order to make the body burn better but that would seem to be counter to what you are trying to accomplish.

653 My understanding in regards to burning carcasses is that the biggest problem is
water content - fresh dead require a lot of fuel to burn. It ain't
quick, but if you bury it in salt and lime for a few weeks, pull out the
dessicated remains, and then burn that, it goes fairly quick.

Oh, and don't inhale.

Someone with a known contact with a patient infected with a deadly viral disease should not be told to go flying around the country in any sane universe (which obviously does not apply here).

The "protocol" flaws are obvious.
Where is the compensation for the personal "normal" temperature baseline?
How was the temperature measured?
What type of thermometer was used?
Who measured the temperature?
What was the specified accuracy of the thermometer?
How can 100.4 F be absolute for all people?
Where is the calibration trail for the instrumentation?

722 Last week ordered large Pandemic Kit for my son/wife/child. It was pretty expensive at $500. Probably more like something a first responder would have but I had it sent anyway. Most of my friends said I was crazy and overkill - maybe but who knows what is happening and what we don't know. I am overseas right now and brought NP95 mask, gloves and goggles and the people I am with were laughing at me but I do not care. I have not worn them but I will say that have seen more and more people in airports wearing masks in the last week. They are probably wearing them for some immune disorder but who knows.

Will not get back to the states for four weeks so who knows what will happen by then. The CDC was not prepared for this crap at all. So, whatever they were telling us about Bird Flu a few years ago and being ready for that was crap also ...

Wish my son did not live in a city but at least it is more southern city and he has huge collection of guns and other stuff and was raised in country/swamps but really if the SHTF the people who are not prepared will just come and try to take what they want ... hopefully a mossberg or AK will stop them.

728 As a nurse for many years working on a hospital medical floor until my retirement this year, nurses are rarely listened to by the hospital administrator and many times not listened to by the nurse's own nurse supervisor and nurse manager. Little respect for floor nurses. So when nurses cry out for help and know darn well what they need for proper patient care most times they are ignored. Floor nurses are on the frontline. Many mistakes by the CDC could have been prevented if the floor nurses had been treated with respect and listened to.

This phenomenon is not solely present in the Health care industry.

You can find this syndrome in myriad professions, skills, job sites, etc.

The people who are at the business end of problems are rarely listened to or their opinions solicited.

Anyone working where they do, you are in a prime situation and that company should thrive.

Sometimes it's a factor of how large and bureaucratic is the normal work place.

The more bureaucracy the more bull shit.

I suspect that there are still 'serious' people at the CDC; however, their projects/departments aren't the 'fair-haired children' of the CDC.

The 'favor' of managers matter; they set staffing priorities, they OK additional funding (and set the baseline budgets for projects), and they decide who gets a fast-track, and who gets the 'spotlight' for their efforts.

I think we're getting a decent sense of the management of the CDC right now... and their past priorities: any pop-science that furthers societal 'engineering' and/or control .

--------------------------------------------------
I hear you on that one, ma'am. My own mother was a RN for decades, and in her day on the units cleanliness WAS next to godliness. The doctors also spent less time on electronic widgets and talked to the nurses directly, because that was where the info came from. (That is what she said anyway.) For myself, I will guess that the Dallas hospital admin staff wussed out and deferred to the CDC for guidance. The reward for their request was a lot of BS spin and directionless talk that needlessly exposed too many people, and made them all look retarded in front of the world. I know SONA won't let the hospital and Obummer's bootlickers pin the blame on the nurses. I know that they won't bother to ask the nurses for input either.

Well that figure was for the entire world.

Still this thing has a lower survival rate than the flu.

Good news, I got my flu shot today.

Bad news, it doesn't do a damn thing for Ebola or a dozen other strains of virii or even flu virii.

Not so much a home test as a quick test for health care folks so they know (or have an idea) of what they're dealing with right away.

They've gotten some money and clearance by the FDA for testing and what they have so far works on monkeys.

The trick is for human testing you have to have ebola infected subjects so you can test normally and compare with the quick test. Because it is so deadly so quick, that an ethical dilemma for the testers.

That is the really insidious thing about Ebola. The first symptoms are very mild. A person could go about their normal business just feeling "a little bit under the weather".

Most of us are used to "toughing it out" and going to work when we feel just a little bit ill. Only a hypochondriac calls in sick or goes to the emergency room under those circumstances.

practices, provision of climate-resilient health and human services..." What...climate resilient services! These people are more ill than my patients. These agencies are infected with liberalism....rarely curable.

854 828 -- rickl -- Give it time; a 'quick-n-dirty' test usually involves mixing a sample with a test sheet dosed with antibodies tailored to 'react' to the stuff your testing for.

This implies, of course, that you have the correct coding for the antibody needed... that usually takes a bit of research.

But it will come... be sure of that.

And I can say with zero fear of being contradicted, there was never anything remotely like a cult of Romney. And I have the scars to prove it.

That being said, I'd give Perry a little slack on this one. He is on a scheduled overseas trip and this really isn't a state level issue. He could have said something but it wouldn't really have meant squat. This is a federal issue.

Yes, just wondering if I can still go to the Superbowl if my diarrhea isn't explosive or my vomiting isn't projectile?

I can? Sweet!!

Thanks for the feedback.

Yep.

Well, back to what you were wondering about Duncan/PatientZero...
The problem is, we don't know 'when he was exposed...not really.

There is what he said about "helping a pregnant lady"...and that was supposedly a few days before he flew over.
But the guy is a liar.

For all we know he could've been exposed multiple times, on different days.

914 My understanding in regards to burning carcasses is that the biggest problem is
water content - fresh dead require a lot of fuel to burn. It ain't quick, but if you bury it in salt and lime for a few weeks, pull out the dessicated remains, and then burn that, it goes fairly quick.
Oh, and don't inhale.

916 The Repub congressman having the hearings tomorrow says Frieden was all worried about the effect on the "fledgling" democracy of Liberia if we had a travel ban. So it's PC, not medicine, if anyone was fooled before.

For fuck's sake, they've been "fledgling" for 150 years! Maybe they should have tried democracy and capitalism then if they didn't want Ebola to destroy their country.

And the difference between Spanish flu and this is we didn't have to have Ebola but our president invited it in.

Right. But it's all we have to work with.

Assuming Duncan was infected around 19SEP14 & using using the "three week" theory, we'd see the secondary cases around 10OCT14 (check), & the tertiary cases by Halloween.

It gets exponential after that.

924 This is regarding the one study I was able to find that actually infected rhesus monkey with filoviruses (Ebola among them) by way of nebulizer.
I think the most important stuff of the study, which is located here http://tinyurl.com/mpnkelt
is listed here:
Virus did not spread easily from person to
person during the Ebola virus epidemics in Africa, and
attack rates were highest in individuals who were in
direct physical contact with a primary case (Bres 197.

The rates were 3.5 times higher in people who provided nursing care than in those who were in casual contact with a primary case; no cases occurred in children whose only known exposure to the virus was sleeping in the huts occupied by their fatally ill parents. Although coughing was common among the human Ebola haemorrhagic fever cases in Africa, there was no direct evidence for aerogenic spread of Ebola virus in human populations.

Several potential explanations might
account for this situation. It is possible that the quantity and distribution of virus within most patients' respiratory tracts may have been below the level needed to establish effective aerosol transmission.

This possibility is supported by histologic examination of archived tissues from one human reference case of Marburg on file in this institute; examination by immunocytochemistry and electron microscopy revealed no positive Marburg viral antigen staining or any ultrastructural evidence of virus in the lung tissue of that case (personal communication,
N. Jaax).

We also demonstrated aerosol transmission of
Ebola virus at lower temperature and humidity than that normally present in sub-Saharan Africa. Ebola virus sensitivity to the high temperatures and humidity in the thatched, mud, and wattel huts shared by infected family members in southern Sudan and northern Zaire may have been a factor limiting aerosol transmission of Ebola virus in the African epidemics.

Both elevated temperature and relative humidity (RH) have been shown to reduce the aerosol stability of viruses (Songer 1967). Our experiments were conducted at 24C and
haemorrhagic fever viruses, Rift Valley fever and Lassa (Stephenson et a/. 1984; Anderson et a/. 1991).

If the same holds true for filoviruses, aerosol transmission is a greater threat in modern hospital or laboratory settings than it is in the natural climatic ranges of viruses.

The study of six people who worked with these monkeys and became zero-positive but from what I can read did not have full blown Ebola, is here pg 266-267 http://tinyurl.com/k2dgv8x
Basically closed-confined spaces with closed air systems, in a cooler temp setting, are better breeders of this thing- but basically you would still need someone, if it were to be caught through droplets, to be giving you mouth to mouth while coughing, or someone lick a counter someone else w Ebola just coughed all over.

So in other words, the most possible way to catch it through droplets is working in a hospital.

Why do you think Obama has forced the resignations of nearly 200 highly-ranking officers over the last couple of years? All that's left in the upper levels of the military (and way too big a chunk of the ranks) is Obamabots. I used to fantasize about a coup, too, but not since all the good leaders were forced out.

928 "You have not said what you would have Perry do except run around shrieking"

How about his friggin' job?

Texas has quarantine laws on the books. Perry has the authority (and the duty) to enforce them. Right now the local cops and perhaps the Texas Rangers could handle it, but if need be it could be escalated to the level of calling out the Texas Guard. Every doctor and nurse who treated the first patient should have been isolated. Everyone who had contact with him should have been isolated.

Not only did that not happen, you had reporters, judges, and God knows who else traipsing through the victim's apartment for days. Jesse Friggin' Jackson down there handing out hugs, for Christ's sake.


Perry "being overseas" isn't an excuse. We have these things called "cell phones" nowadays. I assume Perry has heard of them.
