Blast On Gulf Of Mexico Platform Leaves 1 Dead, 3 Injured

Already decimated by decades of oil spills and the mega-disaster of Deepwater Horizon the Gulf of Mexico has been completely destroyed as a viable ecosystem

An explosion off the US coast in the Gulf of Mexico on an oil and gas platform has killed one worker and injured three others.


Deepwater Horizon victim - more on the way?
The blast occurred on the Echo Platform just before 3pm about 12 miles (19km) off the coast of Louisiana, according to the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE), as quoted by AP. 

The platform is owned by Texas-based company Fieldwood Energy, which has not yet released a statement on the reported incident.




Shannon Savoy, a spokeswoman for Fieldwood Energy, confirmed the death of one of its workers involved in the explosion off Louisiana's coast.

"One employee of a contractor was fatally injured and a second contractor employee was seriously injured," Savoy said in a statement. "We have accounted for all other personnel who were working at the facility."

She described the explosion as an "isolated incident that has been fully contained. The facility was not damaged and there was no pollution that resulted from the incident."




A statement released by BSEE said the platform was not operating at the time of the blast and damage was confined to the immediate area. There was no sign that any oil had spilled into the Gulf waters. 

BSEE spokeswoman Chauntra Rideaux said the injured workers were receiving medical attention at a nearby hospital. She did not provide information on the location of the medical facility or the condition of the workers.

The incident is under investigation, Rideaux said.

Any accident involving offshore platforms is bound to stir up anxiety, especially in Louisiana, which was worst-affected by the April 2010 BP oil disaster - the largest marine oil spill in history. The US government estimated the total discharge of oil into the Gulf of Mexico at about 4.9 million barrels.


In 2011, a White House probe said the accident occurred following the implementation of cost-cutting measures and a faulty safety system.

Bandits In Guinea Steal Blood Samples Believed To Be Infected With Ebola

This virus is worse than worthless to your average illiterate highway robber; the "bandits" will next be reported selling the samples to "CIA/ISIS" for an attack on America

Bandits in Guinea got more than they bargained for when they stopped a taxi van and made off with blood samples which are believed to be infected with the deadly Ebola virus.


Authorities made a radio appeal on Friday, calling on the unidentified robbers to hand over the samples, which were stolen from the minibus taxi during its 265km (165-mile) journey from central Kankan prefecture to a test site in southern Gueckedou.




The samples were drawn from a single person and were stored in a sealed container, and handed off to the taxi driver when armed bandits stopped the vehicle the aid group had commissioned near the town of Kissidougou, said Faya Etienne Tolno, a press officer for the Guinea Red Cross.

Tolno explained that the Guinea Red Cross did not have its own vehicles for transport, which explains why a taxi was commissioned. No one was injured in the incident, which took place on a road known for banditry.

“We don’t understand why they stole the blood sample. Perhaps they thought there was cash hidden in the flask,” Tolno said.


Blood samples literally worthless to average thieves
Dr Barry Moumie, who heads patient care for the national Ebola response coordination committee, told the Associated Press: “We have informed the security services. If these thieves handle this blood, it will be dangerous.” Ebola is spread primarily by contact with infected bodily fluids including blood, feces and vomit.


“I can assure you, however, that the sample-transportation procedures will now be strengthened to avoid such disappointments,” Moumie said.

The theft underscores the many challenges to the aid response, despite millions of dollars’ worth of international support pouring into West Africa to fight a virus now responsible for more than 5,000 deaths in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.


This, is brilliant and a prime example as to exactly why these morons should not be allowed into the U.S. for treatment after contracting the virus: American virologist David Safronetz carries buckets containing blood samples from suspected Ebola patients.

Dr Hans Rosling, who is advising Liberia on its Ebola response, noted the difficulties of transporting such samples, saying countries and groups like the United States and the United Nations have rules about moving such hazardous materials.

“Some of the planes – the US military and UN planes – they will not fly Ebola specimens,” he said. “But they have their regulations, and to cut red tape is not easy.”


"Blood samples… get your Ebola blood samples while fresh… very cheap only 2 Francs…"

In Liberia, “we use specifically allocated motorbikes and cars. We use what’s available and what’s reasonable, we have to organize things as we go along,” he said. “It may have been the correct decision in Guinea (to use a taxi) and the robbery was just a sad mishap.”

“There’s no way we can secure transport in all of this area,” Rosling said. “It was a good initiative to try to get the sample out.”

Five Seniors Die In Georgia Care Center After Receiving Flu Shot

Seniors better off taking chances contracting influenza; children and Seniors have developing and compromised immune systems, respectively, and are especially susceptible to adjunct additive poisons to vaccines such as Squaline

"I will never vaccinate my child." - Virologist, H5N1 weaponiser Teridah Ernala-Ginting to 5th Estate Editor

Healthcare workers at Hope Assisted Living & Memory Care Center in Dacula, Georgia, whose identities have not been made known as of this writing, have informed Health Impact News that on November 7, 2014, five residents of the center received flu vaccinations, only to die one week later.(1)


The workers also explained that these individuals immediately developed a fever after receiving the flu shot.

Furthermore, they maintain that the number of people who died during the time frame in which they did is significant; not only was it in the days that followed their flu shot, but one source notes that, typically, the center "maybe loses a couple of people every 6 months or longer to Alzheimers," but five people in a one-week period is very atypical.(1)


The center's website says, "The Hope Center is a new state-of -the art [sic] assisted living and Alzheimer Care facility servicing Lawrenceville Georgia, Gwinnett County and Atlanta, Georgia. The 64 residences are designed specifically to care for those afflicted with Alzheimer's and other dementias."(2)

Facebook Posts And Changes On Facility Social Media Page Raise Questions

Interestingly, the center maintained a Facebook page before news over this incident became public. An image of its page is shown on Health Impact News, one that happened to include a threatening message from the center to the person(s) responsible for bringing the matter to light. Their then-message read:

To all concerned:

There have been NO flu related deaths at the community. There was a post last night that we have been trying to reach to find out the source of the article. We have contacted Facebook for assistance and plan to pursue legal action as soon as the source is identified.(1)


Influenza 
That particular Facebook page's cover image featured an actual photo of a building, likely the center, along with the exact address in the "about" section.

However, drastic changes to their page have since been made, including removal of the aforementioned "to all concerned" note, as well as removal of the initial cover photo.


Additionally, it's worth noting other before/after differences to the center's Facebook page. In fact, it appears that there are two different Facebook pages that both provide the same website for the center.

Previously, the center referred to itself as the "HOPE Center for Memory Care" with the description below carrying the wording, "Retirement & Assisted Living Facility."

Their Facebook pages, as they currently exist, are different.

"Hope Memory Care Center" is now the name appearing on one of their pages where the description below now reads, "Medical & Health." On this page, only a post from 2011 (the year they joined Facebook) appears, with the urging to visit their website.

Another Facebook page has "Hope Assisted Living & Memory Care Center" as the heading, underneath which "Health Agency / Retirement & Assisted Living Facility" appears. On this page, only generic information about the facility is posted.

The website provided is the same on both Facebook pages.

One can't help but wonder if such changes in imagery and wording lend itself to a loophole in which the center may be able to diminish or altogether remove its responsibility in these deaths, if indeed further investigation points unfavorably in their direction. Either way, the abrupt change to their pages and omission of posts raises curiosities about the situation.

No statements about the incident other than the one now removed on the social media page have been found on their website.

Evidence Yet Again That Flu Vaccinations Should Be Avoided

The unfortunate deaths of these individuals comes at a time when warnings against receiving the flu vaccination are becoming increasingly urgent.


Avoid this like the plague
In fact, just recently, award-winning Dr. David Brownstein, a board-certified family physician and medical director of the Center for Holistic Medicine in West Bloomfield, MI, stood against the American Academy of Obstetrics and Gynecology's statement that flu vaccinations are "essential," saying that because the vaccine is preserved with mercury, which can lead to death, it should therefore be avoided.(3)


Studies conducted by the Natural News Forensic Food Lab reinforces just how detrimental the flu shot can be to health; it was discovered that vials of batch flu vaccine made by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) had up to 25,000 times the legal maximum amount of mercury allowed in drinking water as set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).(4)
