Deceased Ebola victim’s family reaches a settlement with Dallas hospital

Second Health Care Worker At Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Tests Positive For Ebola

It is truly amazing that we hear that Ebola is not an air borne virus, yet there is no understanding for how people, and their pets, are being infected. Maybe if hospital staff had taken Duncan seriously when he first came to the ER, it could have prevented the spread.

A second health care worker at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas has tested positive for Ebola, the Texas Department of State Health Services announced early Wednesday.

Open Discussion – Sept 30th

butterflies_peace_sign_framed_tileCaterpillars, butterflies, moths, crusty old moths, and all creatures great and small,

Earlier, I asked if you would like an open discussion thread this evening to discuss today’s trial in the case of Michael Dunn along with other things.  Joseph replied “yes.”

Ask, and ye shall receive.

Along with today’s trial, other news include:

  • Ferguson, MO.  There have been town hall meetings.  Members of clergy were arrested last night and like the previous evening when others were arrested, they were held hostage until the Ferguson Police Department got protesters to either stop protesting, or to march rather than assemble.
  • George Zimmerman and his family are back in the news.
  • People are talking about the Secret Service at the White House allowing an armed intruder to get inside.
  • Yahoo reports that a juvenile was arrested today for shooting a student in a school in Louisville, Kentucky.
  • An unarmed grandfather was shot to death in his driveway by a police officer in South Carolina.  Turns out that he was killed in February, but it is just now being reported as a comparison to Ferguson, MO.  The grandfather, Ernest Satterwhite, was Black.  The officer who killed him, Justin Craven, is White.
  • Ebola has come to Dallas, TX.  For my friends in Texas, stay safe.  Stock up on Milk Thistle Extract and Burdock Root which you can find in the vitamin and supplement section of Department and Health Food Stores.

 

Remember the Golden Rule and do it!

What’s on your mind?
