Real Crash - by Howard

 
We can avoid nuclear war by putting the financial system into bankruptcy reorganization.Need Glass-Steagall Act, water projects, space program. Need a change to production, the real American System.

Fight to Keep Africa from Ebola

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
The nearby countries like Guinea - Bissau, Senegal, Mali, and Ghana have had to implement draconian measures to stop Ebola at the border. This has created more suffering in Sierra Leone, etc, but it is necessary.

The policies of budget cutting and destroying help for humans by national governments are exposed as insane. That includes Obama. In the USA it really is to impeach Obama and get Glass Steagall Act bankruptcy or die.

Ebola- Eliz Cohen in Liberia CNN

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
Elizabeth Cohen is a CNN correspondent in Liberia, West Africa, and she is doing a pretty good job. Though I suspect the people in Guinea, who got the first big team of Cuban doctors, are doing better.

Cohen goes through the efforts of nursing student Ms. Fatu Kekula to save her family's life. Fatu saved her mother, father and sister, though a 14-year old male cousin succumbed to the disease.

Fatu was successful in giving her family intravenous fluids, while cleaning them and minding them. She kept disease free with a system of using plastic garbage bags on her feet, with rubber boots, a raincoat, and a garbage around her hair, plus a face mask, to avoid being infected by the virus.


Another interesting report is that some patients survived when given the AIDS-HIV drug lamovudine.

Will the UK get Ebola?

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
Could the UK deal with Ebola? Not sure because the leading countries that could get Ebola airplane passengers, at least in Europe, are the UK, Belgium and France.

With all the cuts in the National Health Service, the British may blow it. Other nations in danger are in Africa: Ghana, Senegal, Nigeria, etc.

Ebola in the LA the USA

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
Ebola in the USA, cause the doctors all on AWOL
We could be soon in black plague hell,
Ebola in the USA

(Bruce Springsteen spoof song- Born in the USA)


Los Angeles Times worried that Ebola may spread airborne style. At least in tight quarters. Part of the hospital business and the business of staying alive.



In an article entitled Some Ebola Experts Worry Virus May Spread More Easily Than Assumed, the Los Angeles Times exposes the fact that several experts have questioned the lies being spread by official agencies on Ebola’s transmission.

Dr. C.J. Peters, who battled a 1989 outbreak of the virus among research monkeys housed in Reston, Virginia and who later led the CDC’s most far-reaching study of Ebola’s transmissibility in humans, said he would not rule out the possibility that it spreads through the air in tight quarters. “We just don’t have the data to exclude it,” said Peters, who continues to research viral diseases at the University of Texas in Galveston.

Dr. Philip K. Russell, a virologist who oversaw Ebola research while heading the U.S. Army’s Medical Research and Development Command, and who later led the government’s massive stockpiling of smallpox vaccine after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, also said much was still to be learned. “Being dogmatic is, I think, ill-advised, because there are too many unknowns here.”

The Los Angeles Times article says that the researchers it reached in recent days for this article cited grounds to question U.S. officials’ assumptions in three categories.

One issue is whether airport screenings of prospective travelers to the U.S. from West Africa can reliably detect those who might have Ebola. Individuals who have flown recently from one or more of the affected countries suggested that travelers could easily subvert the screening procedures and might have incentive to do so: Compared with the depleted medical resources in the West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, the prospect of hospital care in the U.S. may offer an Ebola-exposed person the only chance to survive.

A person could pass body temperature checks performed at the airports by taking ibuprofen or any similar common anti-pyretic analgesic. And prospective passengers have much to fear from identifying themselves as sick, said Kim Beer, a resident of Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone, who is working to get medical supplies into the country to cope with Ebola.

“It is highly unlikely that someone would acknowledge having a fever, or simply feeling unwell,” Beer said via email. “Not only will they probably not get on the flight -- they may even be taken to/required to go to a ‘holding facility’ where they would have to stay for days until it is confirmed that it is not caused by Ebola. That is just about the last place one would want to go.”

Moreover, said some public health specialists, there is no proof that a person infected, but who lacks symptoms, could not spread the virus to others. “It’s really unclear,” said Michael Osterholm, a public health scientist at the University of Minnesota who recently served on the U.S. government’s National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity. “None of us knows.”

Russell, who oversaw the Army’s research on Ebola, said he found the epidemiological data unconvincing. “The definition of ‘symptomatic’ is a little difficult to deal with,” he said. “It may be generally true that patients aren’t excreting very much virus until they become ill, but to say that we know the course of [the virus’ entry into the bloodstream] and the course of when a virus appears in the various secretions, I think, is premature.”

Finally, some also question the official assertion that Ebola cannot be transmitted through the air. In late 1989, virus researcher Charles L. Bailey supervised the government’s response to an outbreak of Ebola among several dozen rhesus monkeys housed for research in Reston, Va. What Bailey learned from the episode informs his suspicion that the current strain of Ebola afflicting humans might be spread through tiny liquid droplets propelled into the air by coughing or sneezing.

“We know for a fact that the virus occurs in sputum and no one has ever done a study [disproving that] coughing or sneezing is a viable means of transmitting,” he said. Unqualified assurances that Ebola is not spread through the air, Bailey said, are “misleading.”

Peters, whose CDC team studied cases from 27 households that emerged during a 1995 Ebola outbreak in Democratic Republic of Congo, said that while most could be attributed to contact with infected late-stage patients or their bodily fluids, “some” infections may have occurred via “aerosol transmission.”

Peters, Russell, and Bailey, who in 1989 was deputy commander for research of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRID), in Fort Detrick, Md., said the primates in Reston had appeared to spread Ebola to other monkeys through their breath.

“Those monkeys were dying in a pattern that was certainly suggestive of coughing and sneezing -- some sort of aerosol movement,” Bailey said. “They were dying and spreading it so quickly from cage to cage. We finally came to the conclusion that the best action was to euthanize them all.”

Air France Grounded

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
An Air France plane was reported to be grounded in Madrid, Spain. Air France has a lot of problems because it is the main airline to these Francophone countries in Africa, including Guinea and Sierra Leone. Not sure who is flying into Liberia these day, in many ways the epicenter of the Ebola virus storm.

There could be a new small cluster of Ebola patients in Madrid and also in the Canary Islands (administered by Spain).

Germany- Can You Handle It"

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
Hey Germany, can you handle it?? Like many advanced sector nations, German has cut its public health preparedness in recent years.

Behind the pompous headline in the mainstream media that "Germany Is Prepared," lies the reality that only seven clinics in Germany are prepared to deal with Ebola cases. Of the 50 beds in total that are reserved for that, 25 are at the Charité in Berlin; the rest are distributed among the six other clinics in Hamburg, Leipzig, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Munich. Because of the extreme protection measures that have to be taken to have a functioning full quarantine, up to 20 medical staffers are needed for each patient. Germany currently has two diagnosed cases of Ebola under treatment; a third patient with Ebola died two nights ago.

Crashing Oil Prices

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:
The crashing oil prices have me worried. We have created another huge bubble around high oil prices, including the fracking operation, and now it is all about to crash down, with WTI oil prices going soon below $80.

Seems Saudi Arabia, and the Gulf States are allowing this as part of the "coalition" attack nominally aginst ISIS but really against Russia. Obama is lying again, time to impeach.

United States Must Admit Role in ISIS

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive: http://news.yahoo.com/khamenei-blames-united-states-wicked-britain-creating-islamic-133212188.html
The USA must admit a role in creating ISIS, at least as a derivative operation run through the British, the Saudis and the Turks. Especially the Turks have been supplying everyone willing to fight and kill against Assad's Syria. Syria was the blowback and safe zone for ISIS and then they came back and seized northern Iraq. We had warning, the ISIS seized Fallujah, where so much American blood was shed, in January 2014. Way before Mosul fell in June. But it really goes back to Saudi support to the 9-11 attackers. Time to release the 28-pages from the US Congressional report on foreign involvement in the attacks of 9-11-2001.

Now, the Iranians are giving you the news

Canada Could Break with Brits

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2014/09/12/canada_finally_set_to_ratify_investment_deal_with_china.html
Canada usually runs with the Brits including in the phoney war on ISIS (including ISIS backers in Saudi Arabia) and the sanctions against Russia and hostility to the Brics (Brazil, Russia, India, China, S-Africa.)

However, Canada has another side. It's Candu nuclear reactor has been a champion in India and many other countries. It still manufactures important nuclear isotopes for medical use that are not made in the USA. So Canada could break with the Brits and go with the Brics. It needs US help, so it is still time to impeach Obama now
