Good morning all. In the spirit of denying ignorance, I have conducted a psuedo-scientific experiment on myself. My findings are that large amounts of whiskey do not cause immediate onset of H1N1 symptoms! As a side effect, however, they do make the MSM articles that much harder to understand. So drink away!



The Heights school — the site of the single largest swine flu outbreak in Texas with 27 confirmed cases — closed May 15. It was slated to re-open after Memorial Day, but state and local officials agreed Friday afternoon that the school should remain closed past the last day of school on Thursday.

“I’m furious with HISD about this,” said mother Pen Morrison, who fears the multiple disruptions this year have kept her son from being prepared for fourth grade.

She also worries that her 8-year-old has missed out by not finishing class projects or attending field trips.

“There’s a ritual, and that’s really important,” she said. “Beginnings and endings are important. You don’t just say ‘See ya.’”

Genetic analysis of swine flu virus reveals diverse parts
Components have existed for years but are combined in a new way
www.sciencenews.org...

Components of the H1N1 swine flu virus have been circulating undetected for years, but the virus combines the bits and pieces in a way never before seen, a detailed genetic analysis reveals.

The analysis, published online May 22 in Science, pinpoints the origins of each of the virus’s components. It suggests that current influenza vaccines probably won’t provide protection from the virus, but that the virus is susceptible to some antiviral drugs and will be amenable to new vaccine development. A separate study of the virus’s neuraminidase protein (the N in H1N1), published May 20 in Biology Direct, also shows that the virus is sensitive to some drugs but that parts of the protein important for vaccine development and antibody therapies are already changing.

Same here. My town has two positive test results, according to flutrackers. I have heard people in town talking about at least one confirmed case. I believe a very good friend of mine might be positive, but there are no reported cases in our entire county.

This article seems very suspect to me. There have been five "found dead at home" soldiers there this year. These should be very healthy individuals. What do you guys think?

Ft. Hood soldier found dead in home.

I have started a thread to discuss other cases like this. Please post any similar accounts that you know of, so we can all take a look at them. The link is in my signature.

And had they kept the school open and her son had contracted the swine flu she'd be furious with them about that

UK swine flu toll is really 30,000, says leading scientist


Thirty thousand people in Britain are likely to have been already infected by swine flu, one of the country's leading authorities has told The Independent on Sunday. This would mean that the virus is 300 times more widespread than the Health Protection Agency (HPA) admits.


The startling estimate by top virologist Professor John Oxford comes as leading scientists are warning that the agency's announcements on the spread of the disease are "meaningless" and hiding its true extent. And it tallies with official estimates made in the United States.

Thank you. Please let us know if you hear anything. I have been trying to dig a little deeper. I have found that the strings of unexplained deaths go back to before October 2008. The only other thing I can think of is suicide by drug overdose, but it seems like they would rather report that fact then leaving them all as under investigation.

Of course she would! The thing is that this is the attitude that many parents have right now. They think that H1N1 is a joke and are upset that the children are missing school. If we could get a little more honesty from "trusted sources", they may not be so quick to wish the schools would stay open.

You're right, people aren't taking this serious enough and it's because of what they're being (or not being) told. We have 668 confirmed cases in my county alone, but walk around here and you'd never know it. People are walking around here like there is nothing goin on at all.

.... whats the difference? Not testing people is to hide the actual numbers!

[QUOTE]The spread of H1N1 in Japan, after the Americas, would normally have been enough to justify the WHO declaring a pandemic, under criteria established in April this year. But Britain, Japan and other countries last week persuaded it not to do so, in order to prevent panic, border closures and disruption to trade.[/QUOTE]

Japan does take it more serious than the rest of us. This week I was in Bangkok airport and pretty much all Japanese were wearing masks.

Warning About Swine Flu - H1N1 May 23 2009
northshorejournal.org...

Who is going to ask the correct questions about the swine flu / novel H1N1 epidemic? The old media doesn’t seem to be.

1. Why are the numbers of cases in Illinois and Wisconsin so high?
2. Why are those cases primarily in Chicago / Cook County and in Milwaukee?
3. Why are many states and the CDC not reporting totals on their websites on the weekend?
4. Why have a small number of states such as Florida stopped reporting cases on their webistes?
5. As of the CDC numbers on May 22, Texas had the most cases. Its site published new numbers that do not appear in the CDC report. The difference is over 400 new cases. Why is Texas next updating its numbers on Wednesday, May 27, and not sooner?
6. As of the CDC numbers on May 22, California had 553 cases. The CDC has had that number since May 18. California’s latest number of cases is 672, published May 21. Why is the CDC not current?
7. The CDC has California third in the number of cases. Why is California only reporting on its site once a week?
8. Why are there so many cases in the State of Washington and especially Seattle?
9. Illinois has been first or second all week with respect to the number of recorded cases. Why is its site only updating the case numbers Monday through Friday?
10. Wisconsin had 766 cases on the CDC report of May 22. Its state website, updated later in the afternoon, shows 1,130 cases. The CDC has used the 766 figure for Wisconsin since May 19. Why is that?
11. On May 21, the CDC report had at least 747 fewer cases recorded than the state websites showed. That’s a 13% difference. Why can’t the reports be more current and reflect each other’s numbers?

That is just a few of the questions we have. Either report the data accurately and daily, if it is important, or do not report it at all. Inaccurate and misleading data does no one any good and serves to only perpetuate panic and distrust of the government.

Perhaps the people of Milwaukee and Seattle and Chicago ought to be made a little more aware that their regions are the primary hotbeds of swine flu activity. Old media? Your turn.
