New for August 16th I will try to keep new information and updates in the same post for a while until I have a chance to do a comprehensive re-overview of everything. The 16 August update from WHO indicates a large uptick in the daily number of cases. Over the two days of the most recent reporting period an average of 76 cases per day have been identified as confirmed, probable, or suspect, with a total of 76 deaths over that period of time. Good news is that the situation in Nigeria doesn't seem to be developing. There were no new cases over the this reporting period, and one death. The last new cases in Nigeria were reported on August 6th for the period between August 2 and august 4. So over ten days without a new case in Nigeria probably means that the "outbreak" is burned out. Meanwhile, there is another suspected/possible case in another country. This has happened a number of times, where a suspected Ebola case is identified. Hong Kong, the Philippines, the US, etc. have … [Read more...] about #Ebola UPDATE-Rate Of New Cases Rises, Note to Laurie Garrett, is there a case in South Africa?

Construction has started on a four-month long project to bring Lidl to Uxbridge town centre. The German discount chain has furthered its London ambitions with the announcement of a store at Uxbridge's intu shopping centre. The store replaces the Upper Ground level of the BHS department store which closed last year after the major retailer collapsed. The lower level of the former department store was taken up by Decathlon late last year.

Trump made the comments to “Axios on HBO” ahead of elections that he has sought to focus on his immigration policies. Seeking to energize his supporters and help Republicans keep control of Congress, he has stoked anxiety about a caravan of Central American migrants making its way toward the U.S.-Mexico border. He is dispatching additional troops and saying he’ll set up tent cities for asylum seekers. Revoking birthright citizenship would spark a court fight over whether the president has the unilateral … [Read more...] about Trump: Remove birthright citizenship guarantee from Constitution
