Ebola In America: The Confirmed Case In Dallas, Texas Could Change Everything

United-States-Map-On-A-Globe-Public-Domain-300x300The day that many of us hoped would never arrive is here.  Ebola has come to America.  Air travel between the United States and the countries of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone should have been totally shut down except for absolutely essential personnel but it wasn’t.  And now our nation may end up paying a great price as a result.  On Tuesday, the CDC announced that there is a confirmed case of Ebola in Dallas, Texas.  We know that this individual is a male and that he traveled by air from Liberia to Texas on September 19th.  At that time, he was not exhibiting any symptoms.  It is being reported that he started developing symptoms on September 24th and that he sought out treatment two days later.  Incredibly, he was turned away and sent home.  Then on September 28th he went to a hospital again and this time he was…

ROSWELL, GA – CBS46 News has confirmed the Centers for Disease Control has issued guidelines to U.S. funeral homes on how to handle the remains of Ebola patients. If the outbreak of the potentially deadly virus is in West Africa, why are funeral homes in America being given guidelines?

The three-page list of recommendations include instructing funeral workers to wear protective equipment when dealing with the remains since Ebola can be transmitted in postmortem care.

How to Improve a Baby’s Language Skills Before They Start to Talk

Originally posted on TIME:

The first few months of a baby’s life come with a flurry of challenges on a still-developing brain. Sights, sounds, smells and touches as well as other emotional experiences flood in, waiting to be processed and filed away as the foundation for everything from language to emotions and how to socialize with others. What happens if things are not finding their right place in the brain during these critical months? Some research suggests it results in developmental delays later on—and that’s just what neuroscientist April Benasich and her colleagues from Rutgers University found in a new study, published in the Journal of Neuroscience.

Previous studies done by both Benasich and others show that the brains of children who learn to speak later or who develop reading disorders like dyslexia showed differences in detecting small differences in speech, such as the difference between da and ba, when they were infants. Other…

Incompetence Update: President Asshat Has Missed Over Half Of His Second-Term Daily Intelligence Briefings

Originally posted on The Daley Gator:

A new that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014.

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at the feet of his Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

“I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” Obama.

According to Daily Beast reporter Eli Lake, members of the Defense establishment were “flabbergasted” by Obama’s attempt to shift blame.

‘Rush Hour’ TV series in the works

Originally posted on Inside TV:

The Rush Hour film franchise could be getting a TV makeover. Warner Bros. Television is developing prime-time version of the box office hits.

Like the films, Rush Hour follows a by-the-book Hong Kong police officer who is assigned to a case in Los Angeles, where he’s forced to work with a cocky African-American LAPD officer who has no interest in having a partner. Cougar Town co-creator Bill Lawrence, along with Blake McCormick, are the writers on the project.

The original 1998 film and its two sequels starred Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Original director Bret Ratner is on board the TV project as executive producer along with Arthur Sarkissian and Jeff Ingold.

There’s no network deal yet, however, so Rush Hour is still in the early stages. WBTV did not confirm the project. But unlike some films that studios attempt to adapt movies into TV shows, Rush Hour has a…

CDC Confirms First Case of Ebola Diagnosed in the U.S.

Originally posted on TIME:

Doctors have confirmed the first case of Ebola to be diagnosed in the United States, health officials said Tuesday.

The head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services and other health experts, were set to address reporters later on Tuesday.

Until now, the only cases of Ebola in the U.S. have been Americans who were infected abroad and were brought back for treatment. The death toll from the worst Ebola outbreak ever, which has hit several countries in West Africa, surpassed 3,000 last week.
