Thu, 11/16/2017 - 23:14

Keystone pipeline spills 210,000 gallons of oil on eve of permitting decision for TransCanada | 16 Nov 2017 | The Keystone pipeline running from Canada across the Great Plains leaked Thursday morning, spilling about 5,000 barrels of oil -- or 210,000 gallons -- southeast of a small town in northeast South Dakota. The spill comes on the eve of a crucial decision by the Public Service Commission in Nebraska over whether to grant a permit for a new, long-delayed sister pipeline called Keystone XL, which has been mired in controversy for several years. Both are owned by Calgary-based TransCanada. The spill on the first Keystone pipeline is the latest in a series of incidents that critics of the new pipeline say shows that TransCanada should not receive another permit.

Madagascar plague death toll rises to 165 as scientists fear deadly virus will reach US, Europe and Britain and could mutate to become untreatable

Tue, 11/14/2017 - 05:37

Fort Detrick has been a busy little bee: Madagascar plague death toll rises to 165 as scientists fear deadly virus WILL reach US, Europe and Britain and could mutate to become UNTREATABLE --World Health Organization data shows a 15% jump in fatalities over three days --At least 2,034 people have been struck down by a more lethal form of the plague --Ten countries have been placed on high alert --Two thirds of all the cases have been caused by the airborne pneumonic plague --This can spread through coughing, sneezing or spitting and kill within 24 hours | 13 Nov 2017 | The plague death toll shows no sign of slowing as official figures reveal 165 have now lost their lives in Madagascar's 'worst outbreak in 50 years'. Some experts fear the disease could mutate and become untreatable during this year's outbreak - which is expected to blight Madagascar until April. Others worry the plague will go beyond mainland Africa and eventually reach the US, Europe and Britain, leaving millions more vulnerable due to how quick it can spread. Experts warn the outbreak of plague in Madagascar this year is being fueled by a strain more lethal than the one which usually strikes the country. Two thirds of cases have been caused by the airborne pneumonic plague, which can be spread through coughing, sneezing or spitting and kill within 24 hours.

5 Years After Sandy Hook Shooting, State Police Have Not Released Report on Response

Mon, 11/13/2017 - 04:15

5 Years After Sandy Hook Shooting, State Police Have Not Released Report on Response [to Drill Gone Live] --The preliminary report didn't include any interviews with Newtown police officers who were the first responders on the scene. ] | 12 Nov 2017 | Nearly five years since the Sandy Hook Elementary School 'shooting in which 26 children and educators were killed,' Connecticut state police have not released a report critiquing their response. And the status of the report has become a mystery...Multiple state police sources said that the report has been complete for more than a year and that officials are reluctant to release it, in part, because of criticisms about state police response and post-shooting actions. Then-Mst. Sgt. Erik Murray was assigned to do the after-action report within days of the massacre...In 2015, when The Hartford Courant first requested the report, Murray was transferred to headquarters and ordered to complete it. State police sources said that Murray completed a preliminary report that was shared with members of the Western District Crime Squad and other state police brass who were asked to make revisions around July of 2015. It is unclear what has happened to the report since those revisions were made. [Yes, and odd how students in 2012 from upscale Newtown, CT, were photographed wearing clothing from the Seinfeld era.

Vaccinated child still gets the disease: Case of diphtheria confirmed at Edmonton elementary school | 07 Nov 2017 | The mother of a 10-year-old Edmonton boy who came down with diphtheria -- potentially exposing his elementary school class to the disease -- said her son is up to date on all of his vaccinations. [That's likely how he got the disease in the first place.] Shewchuk's son is a student at Evansdale Elementary School in north Edmonton. Edmonton Public Schools said it was notified by Alberta Health Services (AHS) on Friday about a case of cutaneous diphtheria at one of its schools. Shewchuk doesn't know how her son contracted the disease, but said he has battled severe eczema [a condition likely caused by vaccines] since he was five months old, and that makes him more susceptible to certain illnesses.
