US confirms its first case of Ebola

The United States has confirmed its first case of Ebola virus disease in the city of Dallas, which is also the first case outside of Africa.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that a male patient tested positive for the disease on Tuesday. "An individual travelling from Liberia has been diagnosed with Ebola in the United States," CDC Director Thomas Frieden told reporters.

The man fell ill in Liberia and traveled to the state of Texas. Upon arrival, he was hospitalized and quarantined after showing Ebola-like symptoms.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon announced that it will deploy 1,400 US troops to Liberia. And the newly appointed head of the United Nations Ebola response team has pledged to take action in West Africa to prevent the outbreak from spreading to other parts of the world... more

Saudi Prince: War Against ISIS Really About Removing Assad

‘Prince Turki Al-Faisal, former Saudi Arabian ambassador to the U.S., tells CBS This Morning Anchor Norah O’Donnell, he hopes the airstrikes that include Saudi planes against ISIS are the first step in ultimately removing Syrian leader Bashar Assad and does not see any reason why they shouldn’t send in Saudi ground troops if necessary.’

 

Frequency

As you evolve in frequency, your sensitivity is increasing where it is easier to sense the thoughts and feelings of those around you. 

This can be uncomfortable amongst those projecting judgements, where it is about focusing on your own essence in seeing past these illusions. 

Judgement is a form of self hatred that is in need of healing, which is done through expressing sincere compassion. 

Your love is contagious.

 

Liquid of life: Olive oil could help to reverse heart failure 'immediately', scientists claim

Olive oil could help reverse a patient’s heart failure "immediately", scientists have claimed. Oleate - the fat found in the golden liquid - could help a diseased heart pump blood more effectively and use body fat as fuel, researchers at the University of Illinois have found... more

Gardasil: Take a closer look

‘Gardasil is a vaccine manufactured by MERCK Pharmaceuticals, who advertise your daughter will be one less victim of cervical cancer if they take advantage of this new wonder drug. MERCK is also the $134 Billion Dollar Pharmaceutical Corporation found guilty in a court of law for causing at least 27,000 heart attacks with its last FDA approved drug, VIOXX.

MERCK claims Gardasil prevents cancer in girls in an age group that almost never gets cervical cancer, so it’s impossible to know if it really works. It’s also uncertain how well Gardasil will perform in the real world, instead of with hand-picked, clinical-trial subjects.’ 

Tracks of tears on eye's corneal surface could hold key to cyber security

Tears can expose our most private emotions but could they also secure our most private information online? Stephen Mason, an Australian optometrist, has discovered a new way to use scans of people's tears as passwords which he calls "the world's first one-time biometric pin". 

He has focused on the cornea, rather than the iris, which is the norm in most optical scanners, because cyber criminals cannot copy the unique way tears change our eyes. 
The scanner can recognise a person because each cornea has a unique map. But if a criminal was to steal and try to use the 
data from the last time someone logged in, the machine would find it invalid because it expects the data to change slightly each time. 

"The corneal surface is wet with tears so our own data changes from moment to moment," he said. "Each data set I capture from any eye has these really tiny variations." 

The hope is that the technology could be included on smartphones, from where it could be used to verify payments and access services such as email or sensitive corporate documents online. It could also be embedded in ATMs or doors to access confidential areas. 

From intimate photos snatched and released online from celebrities' Apple iCloud accounts to an attack on Home Depot, the largest known security breach of a retailer, the rise in cyber crime has experts searching for better ways to verify people's identities.

Brain-to-Brain Communication at a Distance Proved

Are you ready for brain to brain communication? Well, it seems that science is one step ahead of you. Collective intelligence is already a fact, it is real. Yes, humans can speak to each other without pen, paper or even the Internet. The interesting part about this idea is that we have been able to do this for the whole of our existence. 

It is built into the wiring of our brains. It could even originate from that area of the brain that is fabled to be “the uncharted territory”, or maybe not. 

In fact, there is now a consensus that this uncharted area doesn’t even exist. Many are with the belief that we have been misusing this area of our brain for centuries-going about mundane tasks and never taking advantage of our mind’s full potential... more
