CDC admits droplets from a sneeze could spread Ebola

Ebola is a lot easier to catch than health officials have admitted — and can be contracted by contact with a doorknob contaminated by a sneeze from an infected person an hour or more before, experts told The Post Tuesday.
“If you are sniffling and sneezing, you produce microorganisms that can get on stuff in a room. If people touch them, they could be” infected, said Dr. Meryl Nass, of the Institute for Public Accuracy in Washington, DC.
Nass pointed to a poster the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention quietly released on its Web site saying the deadly virus can be spread through “droplets.”
“Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose or mouth of another person,” the poster states.
Nass slammed the contradiction.
“The CDC said it doesn’t spread at all by air, then Friday they came out with this poster,” she said. “They admit that these particles or droplets may land on objects such as doorknobs and that Ebola can be transmitted that way.”
Dr. Rossi Hassad, a professor of epidemiology at Mercy College, said droplets could remain active for up to a day.
“A shorter duration for dry surfaces like a table or doorknob, and longer durations in a moist, damp environment,” Hassad said.
The CDC did not respond to a request for comment.
In other developments:
  •  The de Blasio administration said the cost to New York of preparing for and treating Ebola ­patients and suspected victims will be “in the millions.” The city intends to ask the feds for help in paying the bill.
  •  Dr. Craig Spencer remained at Bellevue Hospital in serious but stable condition.
  • The 5-year-old Bronx boy hospitalized at Bellevue was taken out of isolation after doctors determined he had only a respiratory infection.
  • Texas nurse Amber Vinson, who caught Ebola while treating a Liberian man who later died, was declared disease-free and released from an Atlanta hospital — and was elated to be able to go home with the all-clear. “It has been God’s love that has truly carried my family and me through this difficult time and has played such an important role in giving me hope and strength to fight,” she said.
  • Doctors Without Borders nurse Kaci Hickox, who was quarantined against her will at a New Jersey hospital after treating Ebola patients in West Africa, is staying at an undisclosed location in Maine. Tuesday night, her lawyer told ABC News, “Going forward, she does not intend to abide by the quarantine imposed by Maine officials because she is not a risk to others.”
  • President Obama delivered a veiled jab at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s treatment of Hickox, saying officials should not react to the crisis based on “fears.”

The Shocking Cartoon of Benjamin Netanyahu That Appeared in a Left-Wing Newspaper

In an apparent effort to depict the poor relations between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Obama administration, a left-wing Israeli newspaper on Thursday published a cartoon showing Netanyahu piloting an aircraft toward an American skyscraper drawn to resemble one of the World Trade Center twin towers.
Here’s the cartoon that appeared in Haaretz:
“One would expect a cartoon such as this one to appear in an Iranian or Syrian newspaper, not an Israeli news outlet,” said Tamar Sternthal, director of the Israel office of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America, a media watchdog group.
“Haaretz has crossed all lines of reasoned discourse by publishing a cartoon which apparently seeks to compare Prime Minister Netanyahu’s policies — such as approving construction of homes in Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem over the green line, a move criticized by the U.S. government — to the 9/11 massacre of thousands of Americans,” Sternthal told TheBlaze.
“Haaretz should be ashamed and ought to apologize to its readers. The cartoon is also likely highly offensive to the victims of 9/11 as it belittles their unspeakable tragedy,” she said.
Anne Herzberg, legal adviser to NGO Monitor, a Jerusalem-based research institute, told TheBlaze, “It appears that the cartoon is a play on anti-Semitic conspiracy theories blaming ‘Zionists’ for 9/11, equating Bibi [Netanyahu] to Al Qaeda and the 9/11 hijackers, responsible for the murder of more than 3,000 innocent people.”
“It is not only immoral and highly offensive to both Israelis and Americans, it reflects extremely poor judgment on the part of Haaretz’s editors and should never have been published,” Herzberg said.
“Haaretz is well-known for its extreme antagonism towards the Netanyahu government, but that does not excuse unprofessional editorial decisions,” she added.
The dire personal relations between the Israeli government and the Obama White House were magnified this week after the revelation that an unnamed senior administration official had called Netanyahu a “chickens**t” in a conversation with Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic.
Comments on Twitter about the cartoon ranged from condemnation of the poor taste, to questions about what the cartoon was trying to insinuate.

Former Google Security Analyst Arrested for Trying to Join #ISIS

A former Google security analyst was arrested for trying to join ISIS.
The Times of India reported, via Religion of Peace:
A former Google employee was detained for allegedly trying to join the Islamic State (IS) in Iraq, police said, after making a breakthrough which could help them bust an organised network of home-grown jihadis, planning to join the militant group.
Police sources in Hyderabad said that security analyst Munawad Salman, 30, a resident of Musheerabad, was held after officials tracked his conversation for months and was certain that his hidden agenda to visit Saudi Arabia was to cross over to Iraq and join Islamic State .
“He is being grilled for more information. This is perhaps the first time, a software engineer has got attracted to a global terror outfit like Islamic State in the recent past,” a senior police official told TOI.
“The arrest is very significant and could open a big door for us to trace more educated youth getting influenced by militants,” the officer said, referring to IS, whose main motive is to establish Caliphate (Islamic State) in vast swathes of the world.
Software engineer Salman, quit his Google India job six months ago. Since then, he had been actively reading ‘Al Isabha’ web propaganda, which is again run by sympathizers of Islamic State , formerly Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and al-Qaida, to target Indian Muslims, sources said.

The vile Alan Grayson (D-FL) shows how the Democrats live the war on women

Posted By Ben Smith 
The estranged wife and children of Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson have turned to government food stamps to support themselves, despite lawyers representing Grayson asserting that he provides them about $120,000 of assistance, WFTV 9 Orlando reports.
Grayson was named the 17th richest member of Congress this month by CQ Roll Call.
Grayson’s marriage of 29 years dissolved earlier this year when his wife, Lolita Grayson, filed for divorce. A week later, Rep. Grayson asked a court to annul the marriage on the basis of bigamy.
Mr. Grayson is refusing to pay spousal support because he is claiming that she was never divorced from her first husband and therefore their marriage was never legitimate.
Mrs. Grayson told WFTV 9 Orlando she never thought she would be on food stamps or have her kids on the school lunch, because her husband was “the sole provider,” she said. “I don’t have any money at all. He’s been holding all our money for years and years.”
The congressman’s lawyers dismiss the claim saying that she is abusing public funds, saying that he is still paying the mortgage, utilities and phone bills. They are calling it an Election Day ploy to hurt him in the polls.
Mark Nejame, one of his lawyers, claimed that Lolita is “abusing the public.”
“She’s going out and asking for support because she can’t support herself on $120,000? That’s outrageous,” Nejame said.
Despite these claims, Lolita Grayson maintains that the house is in disrepair with mold. “I’m doing this for me and our children, not for him, because I would like to have a good life again,” she concluded.
A reporter from WFTV confirmed the septic tank was leaking in the front of the house and the house was covered in mold.

Facts now pale in comparison with the higher truths of progressivism.

Climate change is happening – but not because of human activity... The goal is to make us feel guilty so we can be controlled


Climate change is happening – but not because of human activity, Daniel Botkin, professor Emeritus in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology at University of California Santa Barbara has said. Moreover, the focus on man-made global warming is detracting attention from real environmental disasters to nature’s detriment, he has argued. 

Writing on the National Parks Traveler, a website dedicated to America’s national parks, Botkin challenges the conclusions reached by the Union of Concerned Scientists in their paper National Landmarks at Risk, How Rising Seas, Floods, and Wildfires Are Threatening the United States’ Most Cherished Historic Sites, not least because they’ve taken the standard reports from the IPCC and others, “treating them as accurate and true,” and then used those results to look at the possible outcome for various national parks. 
“The point of the report, its opening theme and its major conclusion, is that these historic places are in trouble and it’s our fault, we have been the bad guys interfering with nature and therefore damaging places we value,” Botkin says, before methodically knocking down each assertion as demonstrably false. 
Climate models linking human CO2 output to rising temperatures are unreliable, he writes. “Conclusion: our addition of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere does not appear to be increasing Earth’s temperature. Whatever is happening to Earth’s climate does not seem to be our fault.”
However, he does acknowledge that climate change is happening. Taking sea level as an example, he says: “the sea level has been rising since the end of the last Ice Age, starting about 14,000 years ago as the continental and mountain glaciers have melted and sea water has expanded with the overall warming. The average rate has been about a foot or two a century”.
The question he poses is: what to do about it? Rather than spending time arguing over the causes of climate change, Botkin advocates simply rolling up our sleeves and dealing with the outcome, harking back to Frederick Law Olmstead, who in the mid 1800s, created the Back Bay Fens on Boston’s shoreline as a way to manage both ocean floods, deal with waste water for the city, and create a recreational area for city dwellers. 
“Confronted with the combined problems of ocean surges and flooding from river runoff inland, Olmsted did not waste his time complaining about whether or not people have caused the problem. He just set out and solved it.”
However, he saves his most damning criticism for the UCS’s treatment of wildfire frequency. The report claims two national park sites are at particular risk of damage from increasingly frequent wildfires, despite the fact that the evidence shows no increase. 
“Furthermore”, he writes, “it is well-established that most major wildfires that occur these days are from the failure to allow much more frequent, and therefore light fires, to burn. The 20th century policy dominated by Smokey Bear — “only you can prevent forest fires” — and the belief, ill-founded, that all forest and grassland fires are bad and must be prevented — have had a damaging effect.”
‘Damaging’ is an understatement – in fact, the policy caused the extinction of Kirtland’s warbler, a bird which nests in young jack pines, which only regenerate after a fire. 

The conclusion that Botkin reaches is that, ultimately, “global warming has become the sole focus of so much environmental discussion that it risks eclipsing much more pressing and demonstrable environmental problems. The major damage that we as a species are doing here and now to the environment is not getting the attention it deserves.”

Democrats: "By any means necessary or available". Win by cheating is the mantra.

Dem state senator's husband busted while stealing GOP lawn signs

The Democrats have become the win-by-cheating party, so much so that the President of the United States jokes about vote fraud to a party rally, just as he joked about using the IRS to punish his political opponents. Just as a fish rots from the head down, so too does a political party that depends on the votes of ineligible aliens and that fights tooth-and-nail against the sort of voter identification measures common in other advanced (and not-so-advanced) democracies.
The ethos, one that predates Obama by a century or more, has filtered down to the local level, for instance a contest for the Delaware State Senate (hat tip: The Blaze). In the town of Middletown, GOP lawn signs bearing the slogan “Fix the Economy! Vote Republican”
had been disappearing, so GOP volunteers set up a surveillance operation and caught the miscreant, who happened to be the husband of an incumbent state senator, one Sen. Bethany Hall-Long.
The video, embedded below is hilarious, especially the thief’s denial that anyone owns them.  It is a classic good guys versus bad guy situation.
“We got you, brother! We got the license plate, your face, and everything,” one of the volunteers says in the video.

And based on the evidence, an arrest warrant has been issued for Dana Amon Long. Delaware Online reports:
Police identified the suspect as Dana Armon Long, of the 100 block of Saint Augustine Court near Middletown. Police confirmed he is the husband of the state senator, a Democrat. The warrant was issued for theft under $1,500.
Reached at his home, Long would not comment on the allegations. "I cannot at this point in time make any comments at the advice of counsel," Long said.
An investigation revealed that on Sunday, 28 signs were placed on Middletown Odessa Road at Silver Lake Road, and on the 700 block of Middletown Odessa Road, police said.
They were discovered missing on Monday, replaced, and once again removed. After the campaign signs were replaced a second time, campaign volunteers staked out the spot where the thefts were occurring during early morning hours on Wednesday.
Middletown police said the campaign officials observed "a vehicle pull off the roadway in front of the signs. An individual exited his vehicle and began removing the signs."
The crime carries up to a year in prison, and I hope he gets the maximum if convicted. Crimes against the democratic process are more serious than ordinary property crimes.Share on twitte

Another Joe Biden boondoggle. What a lack of class.

Who is Going to Investigate Biden’s Boondoggle?

Vice President Biden, Jill Biden, and 11 family members had a grand vacation this summer at a lodge in the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. They spent four nights there in August, presumably doing what you do at national parks – hiking, fishing, canoeing, bothering wildlife, and taking in the marvelous views.
And until a reporter inquired about the trip, they hadn’t paid for it.
Time’s Zeke Miller exposed Biden’s sweet deal. Are any other reporters going to investigate this?
Vice President Joe Biden, his wife and 11 other family members spent four nights on vacation this August at a lakeside log cabin overlooking the snowcapped peaks of Mount Moran in Grand Teton National Park.
The four-bedroom Brinkerhoff Lodge, where they stayed, is owned and operated by the National Park Service. Under a policy adopted in 1992, after controversy over VIPs using the cabin for vacations, the National Park Service banned purely recreational activities by federal employees at the property, restricting its use to “official purposes.” But in recent years, the park service has interpreted that same rule so broadly as to again allow senior officials to take cheap vacations in Grand Teton with friends and family.
While visiting the park, Biden held no events, kept no public schedule, and his staff initially declined to answer a reporter’s question about where he spent the night. Last week, after TIME uncovered documents confirming his stay at the lodge, Biden’s office said the Vice President planned to personally reimburse the park $1,200 for “renting the Brinkerhoff” for his family’s vacation.
Under park service rules, the lodge is maintained for use by federal employees for “training and official conferences” and for those on “temporary duty in the park.” In practice, the superintendent of Grand Teton National Park, who has discretion over whether to demand payment for the lodge, has interpreted those rules to allow extended family vacations if there is an element of official business involved.
A Grand Teton National Park spokeswoman, Jackie Skaggs, said last week the Biden family visit met the internal criteria, since the Vice President received an official park briefing and tour while staying at the lodge. “With few, if any, exceptions, officials who stay at the Brinkerhoff are given in-depth briefings and/or issue tours,” she wrote in an email to TIME . . .
A spokesperson for the Vice President, who declined to be named, said Biden’s office was still waiting for an invoice from the park two months after the stay, when TIME made inquiries. “The office understood from the park service that personal use would cost the local per diem rate,” the spokesperson said, referring to the a schedule of overnight hotel costs maintained by the General Services Administration for a single hotel room. Biden’s office said the Vice President will now personally pay $1,200 for the four nights, a figure that includes an extra $10 per night for each additional member of his family.
That cost, which assumes that a four-bedroom lodge is comparable to a single hotel room, is far below market rate for other nearby accommodations, especially during peak summer tourism season.
Bolding is mine.
Here are the questions to be asked by an enterprising reporter, should one feel inspired somehow to investigate the Obama administration, which few seem to be.
1. Did Biden understand that all he had to do was tolerate some “briefing” and go for a tour in order to get for himself a taxpayer-subsidized vacation. Presumably, taxpayers had already paid for his travel aboard Air Force 2.
2. Why did it take him two months to pay? Who waits two months to get a bill from their place of lodging without making some kind of inquiry about why they haven’t been billed? Did Biden ever intend to pay anything?
3. Why didn’t Biden pay the market rate for his stay?
4. Did Biden’s office initially refuse to answer questions because he was hiding something?
The Interior Department has launched an investigation into the use of Brinkerhoff by public officials. Others, including former EPA administrator Lisa Jackson and Education Secretary Arne Duncan, used it as well. It’s not clear if the probe will look at Biden’s activities.
But, as they say in monkey house at the zoo, this really smells. Biden runs around the country bashing rich people. Biden himself is well off, yet he seeks as a vacation destination property where he can take advantage of his position in the government to save some money.
I guarantee Zeke didn’t discover everything in the course of assembling his story. Others should get on the case.

Remember when he Palestinians controlled the holy site Jews were not permitted to worship or even be there

Jerusalem holy site closure 'declaration of war' - Abbas

Israeli security forces stand behind a security perimeter outside the Menachem Begin Heritage Centre (29 October 2014)The shooting comes amid heightened tensions between Israelis and Palestinians in Jerusalem
A spokesman for Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has described the closure of a disputed Jerusalem holy site as a "declaration of war".
The move came amid tension and violence after the shooting of a Jewish activist. Israel's PM urged calm, saying Mr Abbas was stoking unrest.
The holy site will reopen on Friday, Israel's economy minister says.
Yehuda Glick, a campaigner for greater Jewish prayer rights at the Temple Mount/al-Haram al-Sharif, was wounded.
Israeli police later killed a Palestinian suspected of shooting him. Moataz Hejazi, 32, was shot after opening fire when police surrounded his home.
Rabbi Glick is a well-known US-born campaigner for the right of Jews to pray at the site, which is currently prohibited. 
The compound - known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif - is the holiest site in Judaism, and contains the al-Aqsa Mosque - the third holiest site in Islam.
In other developments
  • Sweden became the first major Western European country to officially recognise Palestine as a state - Israel has recalled its ambassador to Sweden in response, according to an official quoted by AFP
  • The UN Human Rights Committee urged Israel to halt settlement-building in the West Bank and investigate alleged violations committed by its military in Gaza since 2008
  • US Secretary of State John Kerry described alleged insults which a senior US official aimed at Mr Netanyahu as "disgraceful, unacceptable and damaging"

'Dangerous escalation'
Angry crowds gathered in Arab East Jerusalem near Hejazi's home as news spread that he had been shot. 
Police used tear gas and rubber bullets against stone-throwing youths.
There was also a small demonstration by far-right Israelis outside the holy site, with several arrested for attempting to enter it.
Palestinians hold the Israeli government responsible for a "dangerous act", Mr Abbas was quoted as saying by spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina, AFP reports. 
Israeli Economy Minister Naftali Bennett told the BBC on Thursday that the holy site would reopen in time for Friday prayers "unless there are unusual events that take place over the next few hours".
Map of compound
Jerusalem's holiest site
  • Known as the Temple Mount to Jews and al-Haram al-Sharif to Muslims, it comprises the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, and is next to the Western Wall
  • The Western Wall, from the time of the Jewish Biblical temples, is the holiest site where Jews can pray; the Dome of the Rock, where according to Jewish tradition the Ark of the Covenant rested in the first temple, is the holiest site in Judaism
  • The al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam; the Dome of the Rock is revered by Muslims because of its connections to the Prophet Muhammad
  • Christians also venerate the site because of its Biblical links to Jesus 
  • A Muslim committee has managed the compound since the time of the Crusades, while Israel, which has occupied East Jerusalem since 1967, controls access 
  • Israel maintains a ban on prayer by non-Muslims at the compound as a security measure 
  • Rabbi Yehuda Glick campaigns for allowing Jews to pray at the site 
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called for calm, suggesting Mr Abbas is responsible for the increasing tension.
"We're facing a wave of incitement by radical Islamic elements as well as by the Palestinian Authority chairman... who said that Jews must absolutely be prevented from going on to the Temple Mount," he said, quoted by Haaretz newspaper.
Mr Netanyahu added that reinforcement security forces would be brought into Jerusalem to keep order.
Some districts of East Jerusalem have seen nightly clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces since the Gaza conflict last summer.
A Jewish baby and Ecuadorian woman were killed when a Palestinian attacker drove his car into a group of pedestrians in Jerusalem last week.
Micky Rosenfeld, Israeli police spokesman: ''There was an attempted assassination on a known right-wing activist''
Police say Hejazi belonged to the Islamic Jihad militant group and served time in jail in Israel before being released in 2012.
Police say they were fired at after surrounding a house where he was staying and they shot back, hitting the suspect.
Rabbi Glick has undergone surgery for gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen.
Israel argues that it protects freedom of worship at the site but Palestinians claim it is unilaterally taking steps to allow larger numbers of Jewish visitors.

The Democrat Party loves liars and incompetents as evidenced by the woman opposing Scott Walker in Wisconsin.

Scott Walker surges to lead in Wisconsin as former colleagues accuse opponent Burke of lying about her career
By Thomas Lifson
Scott Walker’s reelection campaign as governor of Wisconsin got double good news yesterday. In the latest poll, done by Marquette University, he has surged to a 7 point lead over challenger Mary Burke. Ms. Burke is heiress to the Trek Bicycle fortune, and champion of the government employee labor unions that resent the need to actually ask their members to join, instead of being able to force them pay dues, as they had done before Walker’s reforms The Real Clear Politics average of polls, still shows Walker with a slim lead of two points, but the Walker trend is unmistakable.
Perhaps even worse news for the Burke campaign comes from some of her former colleagues when she worked at Trek. Her major claim to competence as a Democrat candidate for an executive position is that she was effective in the private sector. The company was founded and built up by her daddy, and is privately held, so there are no public reporting requirements, making evaluation of its and her performance difficult for outsiders. Stephen Gutowski of The Free Beacon reports on the controversy.
“It was here, in an old red barn, that a great American bicycle company was born. The one Mary Burke helped turn into a global powerhouse,” an October ad for the Democratic nominee for Wisconsin governor said.
“She led strategic planning at Trek, helped grow European sales from $3 million to $50 million a year.”
Strategic planning is a staff position, meaning it has little or no direct effect on sales or operations. It may or may not contribute to effectiveness. “Helped grow” sales is pretty vague, too. But beyond that is a basic issue of truthfulness.
A new report from M.D. Kittle of the Wisconsin Reporter reveals a number of former Trek employees disagreed with that claim. They said Mary Burke was fired by her own family for poor performance.
“Burke apparently was fired by her own family following steep overseas financial losses and plummeting morale among Burke’s European sales staff,” the publication said.
“She was not performing. She was (in) so far over her head. She didn’t understand the bike business,” longtime Trek Human Resources Director Gary Ellerman told Kittle. “I was there. This is what went down.”
To be fair, Ellerman is now a Republican official chairman of the Jefferson County party. But:
Another former employee, who asked to remain anonymous, said, “Mary Burke was made to return to Wisconsin and apologize to a group of about 35 Trek executives for her treatment of employees and for the plummeting European bottom line.”
The source said employees had developed several unfavorable nicknames for Burke.
“She never made money in Europe when she was there ... Germany was gushing blood and it would take profitability from everywhere else,” the source told Kittle.
The employees Kittle spoke with said Burke’s claims to have increased European sales while at Trek are “lies.” Instead, they said sales were “at least $10 million lower” under her leadership.
page1image27184 page1image27344 page1image27504 page1image27664
It looks like there is some substance to these claims. Most revealing is the fact that Burke had claimed:

...she left Trek in 1993 because she needed a break after handling a stressful job.
“This had been a very demanding job and as a result, I decided I needed some time off,” Burke wrote in a note to a Doyle administration official in 2005, the Journal Sentinel reported. “I joined some Spanish friends of mine and moved to Argentina to snowboard for three months.”
Now that is a rich girl’s cop out. And, faced with the truth, the Burke campaign is backtracking, claiming that her position ws elimianted in a reorganization. That is exactly how a family-owned firm disguises the firing of an incompetent family member.
Mary Burke tells mainstream media she wasn't fired, Trek just "reorganized and eliminated the position that I had."
— Wisconsin Reporter (@wisconsinreport) October 29, 2014
This is not going to go down well in Wisconsin, a state I know and love. Pretentiousness is not a virtue, nor is shading the truth
by a spoiled rich kid who gets fired and goes on an extended glamorous holiday.
I have my fingers crossed that Scott Walker will opull off a decisive victory, and another phony Democrat will be discredited. 

If ever there was a case where Obama and Elizabeth Warren were right about you didn't build that business Mary Burke (D) should be the poster child.
