U.S. collectively killed more Iraqis than Saddam ever did. Constantly leaving Iraq under brutal repression, sanctions and constant war. I’m in disbelief there are Americans that still believe it was a just and humanitarian mission to remove…

Iraq wasn’t about Saddam or weapons if mass destruction that never existed. It was about oil. It was about greed.

Let’s stop buying their bullshit propaganda. Let’s stop “spreading democracy”.

And terrorism isn’t the greatest threat to national or global security. Poverty and income inequality are. Let’s start acting like it.

Ebola has arrived to the USA, actually to Dallas, Texas for the start. Let’s not panic and arm ourselves in KNOWLEDGE.

This is the first case of Ebola confirmed in the United States.

"There is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it," said Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at a Tuesday afternoon news conference in Atlanta.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW? - EBOLA 101 INFOGRAPHIC

(full size, complete image HERE)

People can be exposed to Ebola virus from direct physical contact with body fluids like blood, saliva, stool, urine, sweat etc. of an infected person and soiled linen used by a patient.

It can be spread through contact with objects, such as needles, that have been contaminated with infected secretions.

BELOW - the WHO advice for African countries - reading them will help you realize that the danger of spreading in the USA in an uncontrolled way is very small.

How can it be prevented?

  • Avoid direct contact with body fluids of a person suffering from Ebola or a deceased patient by wearing gloves, goggles, and masks
  • Persons suspected to be suffering from Ebola should be taken to the nearest health unit immediately for medical attention. Tracing and follow up of people who may have been exposed to Ebola through close contact with patients are essential.
  • Persons who have died of Ebola must be handled using strong protective wear and buried immediately;
  • Report any suspected cases of Ebola to the nearest health unit immediately
  • Suspected cases should be isolated from other patients and strict barrier nursing techniques implemented.
  • All hospital staff should be briefed on the nature of the disease and its transmission routes. Particular emphasis should be placed on ensuring that invasive procedures such as the placing of intravenous lines and the handling of blood, secretions, catheters and suction devices are carried out under strict barrier nursing conditions. Hospital staff should have individual gowns, gloves, masks and goggles. Non-disposable protective equipment must not be reused unless they have been properly disinfected.
  • Infection may also spread through contact with the soiled clothing or bed linens from a patient with Ebola. Disinfection is therefore required before handling these items.
  • Communities affected by Ebola should make efforts to ensure that the population is well informed, both about the nature of the disease itself and about necessary outbreak containment measures, including burial of the deceased. People who have died from Ebola should be promptly and safely buried.

Contacts

  • As the primary mode of person-to-person transmission is contact with contaminated blood, secretions or body fluids, people who have had close physical contact with patients should be kept under strict surveillance. Their body temperature should be checked twice a day, with immediate hospitalization and strict isolation in case of the onset of fever.

Tens of thousands in Hong Kong are spending the night occupying a major highway, demanding free and fair elections independent of Beijing’s influence. Beijing has responded with militarized police, and is censoring photos of the protests on social media.

Regardless if what you believe or don’t believe about 9/11; I think we can all agree that non-violent extremism is not as dangerous as violent extremism. Or violence, period.

Extremism has nothing to do with the beliefs you hold, but what you are willing to do to make others agree with you.

A violent defender of the status quo is more dangerous than a non-violent person in opposition to it. A violent revolutionary is more dangerous than a peaceful supporter of the status quo.

The media makes you very aware that Ebola has killed over 3,000 people (since February). They forget to mention that 21,000 die from hunger each day. Most of which are children. They talk about how terrorism is such a great threat to national security, yet far more people die from diabetes, heart disease and many illnesses that are more greatly associated with low income.

The greatest threat to the planet is not a relatively rare virus or a Islamic terror group. It’s poverty and climate change. Both of which are connected to the narrow pursuit of profit and consumer culture in the Western world.

MBTI: What makes them tick?

eilamona:

(i.e. how to manipulate appeal to each type)

xNTP - play their curiosity
xNTJ - do something inefficiently (they will take over and do everything instead of you)
xSTP - a well-placed dare
xSFP - play prince charming/damsel in distress
xSTJ - play the naive student (give them something to preach you about)
xSFJ - a guilt trip
xNFJ - a chance to reform you (show them your traumatic childhood issues)
xNFP - make them feel you’re the only one who understands their uniqueness
