Link 18 Sep 1 note New Documentary Takes A Look Inside The Ebola Outbreak»

kenyalatestnews:

The worst outbreak of the Ebola virus in history continues to spread in west Africa, with the current death toll from the epidemic topping 2,600. In an upcoming documentary, airing on Sept. 18, ABC News’ chief medical editor and former acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Richard Besser M.D., explores the history of the disease and the implications of the current outbreak.

In the clip above, Besser visits one of Liberia’s few hospitals, without protective equipment, and speaks with members of the clinic’s burial team. Watching a truck drive away with 10 bodies of people who had succumbed to the disease that day, he says, “It’s the first time here in Liberia that I’ve really been scared.”

"Ebola: Inside The Deadly Outbreak" airs tonight on Discovery Channel and Discovery Fit & Health at 10 p.m./9 p.m. central.

"This picture of Morehouse graduates drenched in rain yesterday has surprisingly caused quite a stir. Many are saying it’s indicative of Morehouse not having the money or common decency to implement a rain plan. If you see that when you look at this picture, I’m going to politely take the liberty to call you a cynic. To me this picture symbolizes the journey that so many black men endure everyday of their lives as they face countless obstacles yet continue to pursue success with unwavering determination. It is cynical to ignore the fortitude and thirst for knowledge in these men’s eyes for an opportunity to knock/shade/read Morehouse. Rain can’t stop the House, & life’s obstacles won’t stop these men…”

I’m here for all of this.

Gave me chills.

Link 18 Sep 2 notes WHO Warns Of Growing Black Market For Blood Of Ebola Survivors»

kenyalatestnews:

As desperation in combatting the West African Ebola outbreak reaches new heights, patients have turned to the black market to buy the blood of survivors, according to the World Health Organization.

Since antibodies in the blood could help in fighting the deadly infection, convalescent serum derived from Ebola survivors has become a coveted treatment. Though serum’s effectiveness has not yet been verified, it offers a glimmer of hope for those who have been infected by the virus, which has no proven cure.

In fact, convalescent serum was most recently used to treat American Ebola patient Rick Sacra, who was hospitalized in Nebraska after contracting the disease in Liberia.

At a press conference in Geneva last week, WHO director-general Margaret Chan warned of the dangers behind the growing illicit trade for blood, which could lead to the spread of other illnesses like HIV.

Thus far, 2,630 deaths due to Ebola have been reported, while another 5,357 people have been reported to be infected.

Link 18 Sep 1 note Art Thief Has No Idea How To Hide Things»

kenyalatestnews:

You know when you’re in an art gallery and you decide to steal one of the paintings off the wall and then you can’t find a way to jam it into your sweatshirt because it’s a painting and large rectangular paintings don’t belong inside sweatshirts? Hate it when that happens!

Well, this art thief ran into a similar problem. Luckily, the piece was recovered by gallery staff before the suspect could escape with it. However, the would-be thief is still on the lam.

Police in the U.K. have released surveillance video in the hopes that viewers will be able to help locate him.

Probably won’t be difficult, given his general difficulty with the concept of hiding.

quotes

[1/3] Football is one of the world’s best means of communication. It is impartial, apolitical and universal. Football unites people around the world every day. Young or old, players or fans, rich or poor, the game makes everyone equal, stirs the imagination, makes people happy and makes them sad.” – Franz Beckenbauer
