    From a benefactor of twinkies

    Courier Journal is glad to see the Twinkie disappear! To hell with the 18,500 people who will join the Federal Welfare Train! To hell with the communities! You see how the left really are when they have an agenda! What ever it takes to get it done! Let’s hope that the advertising revenue they gladly took from Hostess, is enough of a loss, that it will force the departure of at least one more leftist reporter!

    Antibiotic resistance ‘big threat to health’ 

    16 November 2012 Last updated at 04:22 ET

    Antibiotic resistant bacteria
    Antibiotic resistance is growing

    Resistance to antibiotics is one of the greatest threats to modern health, experts say.

    The warning from England’s chief medical officer and the Health Protection Agency comes amid reports of growing problems with resistant strains of bugs such as E. coli and gonorrhoea.

    They said many antibiotics were being used unnecessarily for mild infections, helping to create resistance.

    And they urged patients to take more care with how they used medicines.

    This is particularly important as there are very few new antibiotics in development.

    ‘Alarming’

    The chief medical officer, Prof Dame Sally Davies, said: “Antibiotics are losing their effectiveness at a rate that is both alarming and irreversible – similar to global warming.

    “I urge patients and prescribers to think about the drugs they are requesting and dispensing.

    “Bacteria are adapting and finding ways to survive the effects of antibiotics, ultimately becoming resistant so they no longer work.

     

    Prof Dame Sally Davies warns of the consequences of antibiotic resistance

    “The more you use an antibiotic, the more bacteria become resistant to it.”

    To reinforce her message, Dame Sally has issued a list of “dos and don’ts”.

    These include:

    • Do remember antibiotics should be taken only when prescribed by a health professional.
    • Do complete the prescribed course even if you feel better, as not taking the full course encourages the emergence of resistance.
    • Don’t share antibiotics with anyone else.
    • Do remember that antibiotics cannot help you recover from infections caused by viruses, such as colds or flu.

    The HPA said the last point was one of the common misconceptions among the public.

    Dr Cliodna McNulty from the HPA said: “We all seem to forget just how awful you can feel with a bad cold, let alone flu, and this maybe makes us think that we are more poorly than we really are and that we need antibiotics to get better.

    “But this isn’t the case and using your favourite over-the-counter medicines that can help to ease headaches, aching muscles and stop your nose running will make you feel a lot better.”

    John Charles Villiers-Farrow, the brother of actress Mia Farrow, has been charged with sexually abusing  children in the Edgewater area of Anne Arundel County.
    Two young men came forward with detailed accounts of being sexually abused from 2000 to 2008 when the two were boys, according to Anne Arundel County Police.
    Villers-Farrow, 66, of Edgewater, was charged last week with numerous counts of child sex abuse. He was being held Thursday pending an $800,000 bond.

    Anyone with additional information or anyone who may have also been a victim is asked to contact Detective Josh Williams of the Child Abuse Unit at 410-222-3484.

    We send them to train, eat and sleep with their enemies! Is it any wonder? We expect them to “respect” a culture that kills their own children? A culture that hates! Our leaders have done this…..and it is time to call them on it! Bring these kids home from this non-war now…..or let them WIN this fight against terrorism and terrorist and allow them to come home Hero’s!
    Make sure the therapist’s these soldiers are seeing are not like the Fort Hood terrorist!

    U of L hospital was prepared to sink so it could kill babies!

    Sad but true! They found a partner just in time. The CJ and the sick left fought any merger with a “religious” institution! Why heaven forbid (no pun intended) that they not be allowed to hand out candy to underage children! Or even worse, not be allowed to perform abortions, if the candy fails!

    Heads up coffee drinkers! 

    Brew hoo! Coffee could disappear by 2080, researchers says
    By MICHAEL BLAUSTEIN

    Your morning cup of coffee might be a thing of the past because of global climate change, according to a new study.
    Almost all (99.7 percent actually) of Arabica coffee bean growing areas will be impacted by 2020 as global temperatures rise, according to the study from the Royal Botanic Gardens in England.
    “The worst case scenario is that wild Arabica could be extinct by 2080,” one of the researchers is quoted as saying in the Telegraph.
    That might not be so bad given that there is another species of coffee beans, Robusta, which is commonly found in freeze-dried coffee.
    Unfortunately, Arabica beans make up 70 percent of the global coffee market and are the only beans used to make the fresh coffee you have at home or anything that you would find at your local Starbucks.
    Researchers therefore suggest that big time coffee producers will be forced to invent cooling equipment and new irrigation techniques in order to sustain Arabica farms.
    Even if those techniques work, the flavor of coffee is sure to change and prices may rise because of shortages.

    Forty whacks with an axe

    Local hero: 56-year old woman in Russia’s North Caucasus axes wolf who attacked her and lives
    Published November 13, 2012
    Associated Press
    MAKHACHKALA, Russia –  Beware of 56-year-old Russian women with axes.
    A lone wolf attacked Aishat Maksudova outside her sister’s home in Russia’s province of Dagestan in the North Caucasus Mountains.
    The animal bit the farmer on her arm and her leg and she fell to the ground, crying out for help from other villagers. No one was in earshot. So she reached for an ax she had brought along to repair a fence, and with remarkable aplomb, she hit the wolf over the head several times until his teeth unclenched.
    The wolf later died.
    Maksudova has become a hero in the Caspian Sea province that lies east of Chechnya. She was still being treated for her wounds Tuesday at a local hospital after last week’s incident. Doctors said she is recuperating well.
