    Millions of people in america live in abject poverty yet america is meant to be the richest and most advanced country in the world - care to explain that? You cannot even care for your own because republicans have been too busy siphoning off that wealth to enrich the 1% while most others live in various degrees of poverty. Your health care system is broken, infrastructure falling apart etc and thats because you have been paying the lowest taxes in the western world. So yeah its been a great success right?

  • President Obama blasted Congress for failing to provide more funding to combat the Zika virus, telling members to send a bill to his desk that has sufficient funds to fight disease.

    “Congress needs to get me a bill. It needs to get me a bill that has sufficient funds to do the job,” President Obama said Friday, shortly after the CDC reported that 279 pregnant women in the U.S. and its territories have contracted the virus. “To the extent that we’re not handling this thing on the front end, we’re going to have bigger problems on the back end.”

    WASHINGTON–Mosquitoes carrying the dangerous Zika virus are expected to begin infecting Americans within the U.S. in the next “month or so,” the government’s top infectious disease expert said Sunday, as officials race to prevent a widespread outbreak of the virus that is believed linked to birth defects.

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. must act more quickly to protect pregnant women from birth defect-causing Zika, a top health official said Thursday even as the House left town for its Memorial Day recess with no visible progress toward a congressional compromise on emergency funding to battle the virus.

    “In a public health emergency, speed is critical. A day, a week, a month can make all of the difference,” Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told the National Press Club.

  • U.S. officials have found bacteria resistant to the antibiotic of last resort in a sample from a second pig, increasing concerns about the spread of a newly discovered superbug that initially surfaced in this country in March.

    The latest report involves an antibiotic-resistant strain of E. coli from a pig intestine, which was detected by scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a spokeswoman said Monday evening. The E. coli bacteria carried a gene making it resistant to the antibiotic colistin, the drug used against particularly dangerous types of superbugs that can already withstand many other antibiotics.

    The sample is still undergoing analysis. The bacteria were detected May 27, nearly three months after the first discovery of the gene in a pig sample. USDA officials have provided few details, including where either animal was raised or killed.

    ATLANTA -- So far, 17 Georgia residents have contracted the Zika virus. But the CDC director said that the number could rapidly grow - especially if Congress doesn't act soon.

    11Alive's Valerie Hoff talked to doctor Tom Frieden on Thursday about the fight against Zika and what's holding it up.

    Frieden predicts the virus is going to increase in Georgia, from travel, sexual transmission and local spread of the virus from Georgia mosquitoes.

    "This is a horrific situation we have to do everything possible to confront," Frieden said.

    Frieden stepped up the sense of urgency in stopping the spread of Zika, telling a packed Atlanta Press Club that time is running out.

    "The speed of an epidemic is the speed of days and weeks," Frieden said. "We need to make sure congress acts quickly so we can work with American women and families to monitor the effects of Zika."

  • But the landscape will change soon, Dr. Fauci said, as infected mosquitoes enter the U.S. mainland.

    “The concern is that we will have local transmission,” he said. “In other words, people who get infected in the United States, get bitten by a mosquito, but who have never left the continental United States.”

    He added, “We fully expect that will happen as we get to the more robust mosquito season in the next month or so.”

  • NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Mosquitoes that can transmit the Zika virus have been found to live in nearly all U.S. states, according to maps released this week by authorities trying to assess the public health threat.

    The maps show the two breeds of virus-carrying mosquitoes, the yellow fever and the Asian tiger mosquito, can live in the nation's northernmost states of Michigan, New Hampshire, Washington state and Minnesota, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    The best secondary offerings are the ones that take place right after a company has nailed an important proof of concept or de-risking event. In those situations, an offering should be welcomed because it is simply being used to fuel the next stage of growth. Companies are going into these offerings with the upper hand, so any dilution should be minimal and efficient. I usually think of the additional money raised in these cases as supplementing my investment, not diluting it.

    "We're having this struggle very publicly in the United States right now where a vulgar, demented, pig demon named Donald Trump is trying to make the United States a more closed society.

    "We'll be saying, no more brown people, no more Muslims, let's get women back in the kitchen. Let's make America great again.

    "What he's talking about is taking emasculated men in their forties, fifties and sixties who are not living the life they hoped for in their teens and twenties and saying, 'you know what? there are people to blame for this. And we're going to build a wall and we're going make America great again.

    "At the core of that is the struggle between being an open society and a closed society.

    Thats right its the gift that will keep on giving. Every time the media now mentions Zika vaccines they will be name checking Inovio and that will go on for weeks nearly every single day

    Next up will be local transmission, sexual transmission, questioning of the diagnosis and under reporting questions, lack of government funding and more bad news about birth defects

    There is a tsunami of money coming to Inovio over the next few weeks

    However, when it comes to addressing global epidemics like this, the U.S. government has a really important leadership role to play. Our primary goal is to protect pregnant women from getting Zika and this is why we are asking Congress for approximately $1.9 billion in emergency funding to enhance our ongoing efforts to prepare for and respond to the Zika virus, both domestically and internationally.

  • With travelers in areas affected by the Zika virus not permitted to donate blood for 28 days after their return to the U.S., the Indiana Blood Center is seeing an increase in travel deferrals that has left it approximately 500 units short in May.

    “We also believe donors who have traveled are self-deferring, not even showing up to donate, because the deferral is so broad,” said Andrea Fagan, marketing director for the Indiana Blood Center. “Unlike malaria or some other travels, deferrals that are specific to regions of a country, Zika is a blanket deferral, all of Mexico, regardless of where you travel. Zika is a daytime-biting mosquito, as well. This means that if you were on a cruise ship passing through an area of active transmission, you are deferred. It’s a very broad deferral.”

  • More rain is coming, so are more mosquitoes.

    As parts of South and Southeast Texas enter peak season for Aedes aegypti, the species of mosquito apparently posing the greatest risk for transmitting the Zika virus, state health officials are ramping up a public awareness campaign urging people to protect themselves from insect bites.

    What the state is not doing, public health experts say, is paying for protective measures — such as mosquito eradication and handing out insect repellants — that could reduce the risk of Zika transmission. By and large, making prevention happen — and finding the money for it — is left to local governments, which experts say are often ill-equipped to handle the job.

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida will experience a "disaster" with the Zika virus if federal authorities don't immediately provide money to help battle the virus, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Wednesday.

    Scott, who had already visited Washington, D.C., in an effort to get Congress to act, sent a strongly worded letter to President Barack Obama asking the federal government to do something. The Republican governor called it "profoundly disappointing" that Congress has not taken "immediate action."

    White House spokesman Josh Earnest responded to the letter by saying that "we hope that Republicans in Congress will finally get the message" and approve the $1.9 billion that the president has been seeking. Congress is currently divided over how much money to spend to battle the virus, which can cause grave birth defects and be spread by certain mosquitoes.

  • People are normally infected by mosquito bites, but there is also evidence that the virus can pass as a result of sexual contact. Latin America and the Caribbean have been hit hardest by the Zika outbreak and as Chan points out this region has “the highest proportion of unintended pregnancies anywhere in the world."

    "Zika shows an extreme consequence of the failure to provide universal access to sexual and family planning services," she mentioned, according to AFP.
