A doctor in New York City who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea tested positive for the Ebola virus Thursday, becoming the city’s first diagnosed case.


The doctor, Craig Spencer, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital Center on Thursday and placed in isolation while health care workers spread out across the city to trace anyone he might have come into contact with in recent days. A further test will be conducted by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to confirm the initial test. While officials have said they expected isolated cases of the disease to arrive in New York eventually, and had been preparing for this moment for months, the first case highlighted the challenges surrounding containment of the virus, especially in a crowded metropolis.


Even as the authorities worked to confirm that Mr. Spencer was infected with Ebola, it emerged that he traveled from Manhattan to Brooklyn on the subway on Wednesday night, when he went to a bowling alley, and then took a taxi home.

The next morning, he reported having a temperature of 103 degrees, raising questions about his health while he was out in public.


THIS is the QUACK that just put NYC at risk
People infected with Ebola cannot spread the disease until they begin to display symptoms, and it cannot be spread through the air. As people become sicker, the viral load in the body builds, and they become more and more contagious. Dr. Spencer’s travel history and the timing of the onset of his symptoms led health officials to dispatch disease detectives, who “immediately began to actively trace all of the patient’s contacts to identify anyone who may be at potential risk,” according to a statement released by the department.


It was unclear if the city was trying to find people who might have come into contact with Dr. Spencer on the subway. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority directed all questions to the health department, which did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the issue.

At Dr. Spencer’s apartment in Harlem, his home was sealed off and workers distributed informational fliers about the disease. It was not clear if anyone was being quarantined.

Health authorities declined to say how many people in total might have come into contact with Dr. Spencer while he was symptomatic.


WHY wasn't Spencer quarantined on arrival?
Mayor Bill de Blasio, speaking at a news conference Thursday evening before the diagnosis, said Dr. Spencer has given health workers a detailed accounting of his activities over the last few days.

“Our understanding is that very few people were in direct contact with him,” Mr. de Blasio said.

Dr. Spencer had been working with Doctors Without Borders in Guinea, treating Ebola patients, before returning to New York City on Oct. 14, according to a city official.



He told the authorities that he did not believe the protective gear he wore while working with Ebola patients had been breached but had been monitoring his own health.

Doctors Without Borders, in a statement, said it provides guidelines for its staff members on their return from Ebola assignments, but did not elaborate on those protocols.

“The individual engaged in regular health monitoring and reported this development immediately,” the group said in a statement.


Dr. Spencer began to feel sluggish on Tuesday but did not develop a feveruntil Thursday morning, he told the authorities. At 11 a.m., the doctor found that he had a 103-degree temperature and alerted the staff of Doctors Without Borders, according to the official. The staff of Doctors Without Borders called the city’s health department, which in turn called the Fire Department. Emergency medical workers, wearing full personal protective gear, rushed to Dr. Spencer’s apartment, on West 147th Street. 


He was transported to Bellevue and arrived shortly after 1 p.m.

He was placed in a special isolation unit and is being seen by the pre-designated medical critical care team. They are in personal protective equipment with undergarment air ventilation systems.


Be prepared, have a plan, work the plan
Bellevue doctors have prepared for an Ebola patient with numerous drills and tests using “test patients” as well as actual treatment of suspected cases that turned out to be false alarms.

A health care worker at the hospital said that Dr. Spencer seemed very sick, and it was unclear to the medical staff why he had not gone to the hospital earlier, since his fever was high.


Dr. Spencer is a fellow of international emergency medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, and an instructor in clinical medicine at Columbia University.

“He is a committed and responsible physician who always puts his patients first,” the hospital said in a statement. “He has not been to work at our hospital and has not seen any patients at our hospital since his return from overseas.”

Even before the diagnosis, the Centers for Disease Control dispatched a team of experts to assist in the case, before the test results were even known.

More than 30 people have gone to city hospitals and raised suspicions of Ebola, but in all those cases, health workers were able to rule it out without a blood test.


DO NOT listen to the FOX "News," MSM frauds and liars; tune them out, turn them off, THEY ARE LYING TO YOU

While the city stepped up its laboratory capacity so it can get test results within four to six hours, because of the precautions that need to be taken when drawing blood and treating a person possibly sick with Ebola, it took until late in the evening to confirm the diagnosis.

But doctors said that even before the results came in, it seemed likely that he was infected. Symptoms usually occur within eight to 10 days of infection and Dr. Spencer was home nine days when he reported feeling ill.


DO NOT listen to the CDC liars
Ebola is transmitted through bodily fluids and secretions, including blood, mucus, feces and vomit.

Because of its high mortality rate — Ebola kills more than half of the people it infects — the disease spreads fear along with infection.

The authorities have been on high alert ever since Thomas Eric Duncan traveled to the United States in September from Liberia, and was later given a diagnosis of Ebola.




Several days after his death, a nurse who helped care for Mr. Duncan learned she had Ebola. Two nurses who treated Mr. Duncan fell ill but have since recovered.


And above all, DO NOT PANIC - PANIC KILLS

That single case led to hundreds of people being quarantined or being asked to remain isolated from the general public..

The missteps by both local and federal authorities in handling the nation’s first Ebola case raised questions about the ability of health care workers to safely treat those with the disease.

“New York has mobilized not only a world-class health department, but has full engagement of many other agencies that need to be on the response team,” he said.

BREAKING : Hatchet - Wielding Man Shot Dead By NYPD

CNN, Fox, "mainstream" and social media directly responsible for copycat "terror attacks" after hyping and turning these fruitcake wanna-be losers and freaks into instant rock stars

A man armed with a hatchet who attacked a group of cops on a Queens street, critically injuring one of them, was shot dead by the officers on Thursday afternoon, and a female bystander was hit by an errant round.


The officer critically injured in the deadly encounter in Jamaica, a 25-year-old rookie, suffered a hatchet wound to the side of the head. He was being operated on and doctors listed him in critical but stable condition, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told reporters at a 5 p.m. press conference.

The bystander, a 29-year-old woman, was struck in the back by a stray bullet and also underwent surgery. She was initially listed in critical condition, but surgeons managed to stabilize her, Bratton said.



Hatchet in hand, the 32-year-old suspect rushed at four rookie cops as they stood on Jamaica Ave. near 160th St. about 2 p.m., police said. He lunged at them with the weapon, striking one of them in the arm and landing the severe blow to the 25-year-old cop’s head.

“The suspect charged at the officers,” Bratton told reporters.


The two officers who were not dealt hatchet blows fired at the suspect, killing him, Bratton said.

Police did not reveal how many rounds were fired, or where on the body the suspect was hit. His name was not released.

The clash took place on the sidewalk outside of a Conway store at mid-block. The female bystander was roughly two doors down when the bullet lodged in her lower back. Her name also was not released.


Police officials said the attack was unprovoked, and that the suspect did not make any statements during his crazy charge; but Bratton said a motive has not been established.

“It was a completely unprovoked attack,” said NYPD Chief Kim Royster, a department spokeswoman.

The four cops who were attacked all were graduated from the Police Academy in July, Bratton said. They were assigned to Jamaica’s 103rd Precinct.

The investigation was continuing Thursday night.

Understanding The Determinants Of Terrorist Attack Publicity - THESIS

Profits, government repression main goals of "mainstream media" in hyping "terror" while encouraging, aiding and abetting copycat attacks by wanna-be "jihadist" You Tube, Twitter, Facebook social media fruitcakes and losers

Thesis Overview 

There has been substantial research on the causes and consequences of terrorism around the world, but only a few studies have examined the role of terrorist attack publicity. The question of what determines the media coverage of terrorist incidents is seldom asked by scholars but is nonetheless crucial to understanding how a terrorist group communicates its message. 


Terrorism is generally seen as a communicative strategy of extremist organizations that aim to spread fear and disseminate propaganda in order to try to gain concessions from the government through the process of bargaining. 

Terrorism is premeditated and politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or individuals. 

It has been used historically by radical leftists, nationalists, and religious fundamentalists in the pursuit of their goals.


Terrorist groups typically do not have enough material resources – personnel, funds, or territory under their control – to achieve their aims through military actions or legitimate means such as lobbying or navigating the legislative process. 

Their supporters are usually in the extreme minority, and they are generally much weakerthan the authorities they try to coerce (Lake 2002). Instead, terrorist organizations typically engage in psychological campaigns to influence a sizable audience by attacking civilians or striking more symbolic targets.


Communication is inherent to any act of terrorism. 

Besides attempting to harm the immediate victims, terrorists often threaten a target population and call upon potential sympathizers to support their cause in order to try to coerce the government to concede to their demands. 


Media attention is generally an important way for terrorist groups to communicate with the public and therefore try to gain concessions from the authorities. The media involves all means and channels of information, including newspapers, television, the radio, websites, and magazines.  Journalists employed by media organizations collect, analyze, verify and present information regarding events, trends, issues, and people. The public’s awareness of terrorism comes almost entirely from news reporting, making it essential to terrorist organizations’ promotion of their goals. 


The media’s centrality in the calculus of terrorism is affirmed by the notion of the “propaganda of the deed.” 

Schmid and de Graaf (1982, 14) explain that forterrorists, “the immediate victim is merely instrumental, the skin of a drum beaten to achieve a calculated impact on a wider audience.”


Terrorists generally want the media to cover their activities extensively in order to gain recognition, voice their message, and try to get the government to listen to them. 

The Geneva Declaration on Terrorism recognizes that the media may play into the hands of terrorists by “uncritically disseminating information” and selectively covering their attacks. Although media organizations today exercise disciplined restraint with respect to terrorist propaganda, they nonetheless continue to publicize terrorist activities day after day. 




When terrorist organizations plan their attacks, they often consider the likelihood of gaining media attention. Weimann and Winn (1994, 52) describe terrorism as a theatrical production in which “terrorists pay attention to script preparation, cast selection, sets, props, role playing, and minute-by-minute stage management.” The possibility of receiving the spotlight is important to terrorist groups because it increases the expected returns of carrying out their attacks.


Terrorists often vie for publicity by exploiting far-reaching, instant media networks and information highways that carry news about their activities around the world. However, media attention to terrorist incidents varies a great deal. While most acts of terrorism receive almost no attention by the media, a few of them receive overwhelming publicity.


Weimann and Winn (1994, 68) estimate that major newspapers in the United States cover about one third of transnational terroristattacks, whereas major American television stations report approximately one in six events. Chermak and Gruenewald (2006) find that even a smaller percentage of terrorist attacks in the United States are reported by prominent domestic media organisations.

Stinking Rich : Kazakhstan To Offer Tourists Luxury Caviar Baths

This as the rich become too rich and the poor too poor; a day of reckoning is fast coming for the elitists and the filthy rich as the poor vastly outnumber them - Beluga sturgeon already threatened with extinction: Kazakhstan more famous for it's gerbils that carry plague    

RT
10/23/2014

Long known as a premium hors d'oeuvre, Caviar has been enjoyed by the rich and famous for generations. For lovers of the delicacy, an upmarket spa in Kazakhstan plans to offer discerning tourists an even more delectable experience: caviar spas.


Beluga already facing extinction
Touted as a ‘black caviar spa for real gourmands’, developers for the planned Caspian Sea resort of Kenderli hope their luxurious patrons will be rolling in it by 2020, Eurasianet.org reports.

The developers say visitors will be offered "a set of luxury treatments based on Beluga caviar that will surely surprise you. This variety is found primarily in the Caspian Sea, and is considered one of the best caviars in the world."


With its stock of Beluga Sturgeon, the Caspian is an epicenter of the world’s caviar trade. Costing up to $4,500 a pound, the critically endangered Beluga produces some of the world’s most revered roe.

And for those who don’t consider a fish egg romp their idea of the height of luxury, holidaymakers can also try their hand at a ‘dance with seals’, which they market as a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Slated to cost $3.3 billion, developers are hoping to build the resort some 125 miles (201km) south of Aktau, a city originally intended to be nothing more than barracks for oil workers.

Rising out of the desert, Kenderli hopes to attract 642,000 visitors a year, roughly half from abroad. So far, the sandy beaches and rocky hills dotting Kazakhstan’s Caspian shore are frequented primarily by visitors from other parts of the country.


Majority of Kazakhstan citizens remain dirt-poor as the rich obscenely bathe in caviar

The plan is to make Kenderli the “best” resort on the Caspian and “a perfect destination for domestic and international tourists, generating wealth for the region and wellbeing for our people.”

Former Soviet states, particularly Russia, as well as Turkey and the Middle East, are all viewed as potential sources of big tourist bucks.

But much like the rich tourists they hope to lure in, funds for the project have yet to materialize, though the Trade and Investment Ministry told Tengri News that Iranian investors, among others, have expressed interest.

If they do find willing wellsprings of green, their primary concern is to avoid the fate of Avaza – a Caspian resort which opened five years ago in neighboring Turkmenistan and was later panned as “the most ill-conceived resort ever built.”


Kazakhstan best known for population explosion of plague carrying gerbils

Meanwhile, talk of caviar baths and Caspian tourism is all part of a larger government-led initiative to attract tourists to Kazakhstan.

In 2007, President Nursultan Nazarbayev launched the Aktau city project in order to develop tourism and attract investment. With plans to build an entirely new city north of Aktau with an eye for UAE style, the project was ultimately abandoned last year.

And earlier this year, Kazakhstan introduced a pilot project which will allow tourists from 10 states – Germany, France, Italy, Japan, Malaysia the Netherlands, the UAE, the UK, the USA and South Korea - to enter Kazakhstan for 15 days without needing a visa.
