They seemed to make their own info null and void. There's only a slight chance of this or that, but it's very concerning. Did it make sense for them to report it like that? That's the most rational clip I've seen of Beck though.

I have a new thread I started today that ties a lot of the new stuff that has been happening lately together...

MEXICO CITY — Mexican swine flu cases jumped as the Netherlands and Vietnam joined the growing list of countries with fatalities and deaths from the virus in Latin America soared.

Three new deaths each, not yet confirmed by the World Health Organization, were registered on Tuesday in Costa Rica, Peru and in San Salvador, two more in Saudi Arabia and others in Bolivia and Spain.

While no new deaths were reported in Mexico, the health ministry said almost 1,000 fresh cases had been confirmed in just five days, taking the total soaring above 17,000.

"As of yesterday (Monday) evening the number of confirmed cases of A(H1N1) in the country was 17,416, of which 146 have died," a ministry statement said.

It was unclear where all the new cases had occurred, but the impoverished southeastern state of Chiapas has been struggling to contain a sharp rise in recorded cases in recent weeks.

EL PASO -- A Pan-American Health Organization official was quoted during a seminar in California Monday as saying there have been Tamiflu-resistant cases of the H1N1 virus in El Paso.

Tuesday that same official, Border Chief Maria Cerqueira, was pressed by ABC-7 and she clarified her remarks. She said tougher strains of the Swine Flu virus are a concern but there have been no documented cases in El Paso or anywhere else along the border.

"There are lots of questions about vaccines, about the actual virus," said Cerqueira. "There's things we really don't know because it's so new, there is very little evidence and there's also very limited resources to research everything."

Officials with Cerqueira's organization responded via a statement. They said their border chief's comments, which were publicized in an article in the Armed Forces Press, were "inadvertent."

In the article, Cerqueira said, "We have found resistance to Tamiflu on the border. We have observed some cases, few to be sure, in El Paso and close to McAllen, Texas."

SAN ANTONIO - One of the best current defenses against the swine flu is showing vulnerability. MSNBC is reporting that six people have the virus that is resistant to Tamiflu just 220 miles away from San Antonio in McAllen, as well as other border towns like El

MORE than 250 children were rushed to Princess Margaret Hospital in the past 24 hours causing chaos in the emergency department.

Australian Medical Association of WA state president Gary Geelhoed said WA hospitals were operating over capacity and until extra beds were put into the system patients, including children, would have to wait dangerously long to get care.

“For more than a week our hospitals have been under siege and the situation is growing more serious by the day,” AMA state president Prof Gary Geelhoed.

The failure to provide more concrete information and sequences from the resistant patients along the Texas border increases concerns that resistant pandemic H1N1 is widespread, but grossly under-represented in the limited number of public sequences released at Genbank or GISAID.

Russia’s leading health official urged a boycott of Britain over swine flu yesterday as he appealed to his country’s football fans not to travel to Wales for a World Cup qualifying match.

Gennadi Onishchenko said that Britain was the source of most of Russia’s swine flu cases and that it was “absolutely inappropriate” to travel there. He suggested that Britain was being irresponsible in failing to cancel major events to contain the pandemic.

This is a stern, yet humble, warning to all citizens of the globe. It is now proven that we are all being harmed by repeat vaccinations. This evidence must be circulated broadly in light of the imminent Fall, 2009 plan to turn North American schools into MASS vaccine centers to institute triple flu vaccine to us all. Children will be the first to be injected with experimental flu vaccines. The entire vaccine industry, as it turns out, has been experimental. We did not know that we were causing damages – for us all.

So why do infections tend to go up in the cold winter months and level off in the summer? According to a study from researchers at Mt. Sinai Medical School, the flu virus is more stable and able to stay airborne longer when the air is cold and dry. The Sinai researchers, who tested guinea pigs, found that the spread of the virus was most prevalent when the temperature reached a chilly 41 degrees Fahrenheit; infections slowly decline as the mercury rises before stopping altogether at 86 degrees. (Tropical countries, where fairly constant, high temperatures are prevalent, tend to have relatively even rates of infection all year long — without the sharp peaks and valleys seen in cooler countries.) It's also possible that the drier air in winter can dehydrate mucus in the nasal passages, which lowers the body's natural defense against the virus.

But cold temperatures aren't the only reason. Most of us spend less time in the sun during the winter, and that means we can end up Vitamin D-deficient, which leaves us vulnerable to any number of infections. People also tend to spend more time indoors during the winter, which could put us in the line of infection for the flu, particularly if we spend lots of time sharing enclosed spaces with others. School is in session during the fall and winter in the northern hemisphere, and classrooms are excellent vectors of infection for all illnesses, including the flu.

Pune: After the death of 14-year-old Rida Shiekh, who succumbed to swine flu on Monday, hundreds of parents were seen rushing to Pune’s Naidu hospital to get their children tested for the H1N1 virus.

The staff at the Naidu hospital was clearly understaffed to handle the sheer numbers and was couldn’t manage the crowd when furious parents barged into the quarantine ward.

The contest is part of the government's efforts to educate people about the flu. "We're very concerned about people having accurate information," a senior government official said at a background briefing yesterday.

One of the goals is to make sure people understand issues surrounding vaccination -- vaccine safety and who should get priority -- so people don't feel rushed into making decisions when the first vaccines against the swine flu become available. That's now expected to be in mid-October.

What you probably didn’t want to know about Dyncorp
DynCorp, it turns out, is a one of the top private military contractors working for the U.S. government. In addition to allegedly trafficking in under-age sex slaves in Bosnia (…) and poisoning rural farmers in Ecuador with its aerial spraying of Colombian coca crops (…), Dyncorp just happens to be paid big dollars by the U.S. government to patrol the U.S. / Mexico border, near where the H1N1 first swine flu virus was originally detected. ternational/
