    CONAKRY, Guinea — Ebola, one of the world's most deadly viruses, has spread from a remote forested corner of southern Guinea to the country's seaside capital, raising fears that the disease, which causes severe bleeding and almost always death, could spread far beyond this tiny West African nation's borders.

    Fears are growing that the most lethal form of the Ebola virus can mutate into an airborne pathogen, making the spread of the terrifying disease more difficult to check. It was previously thought the untreatable virus, which causes massive internal bleeding and multiple organ failure, could only be transmitted through contact with infected blood. But now Canadian researchers have carried out experiments showing how monkeys can catch the deadly disease from infected pigs without coming into direct contact.k

    Joe Landolina may have invented a cure for bleeding. He claims that his creation, a substance called Veti-Gel, jump-starts the clotting and healing process so quickly that even wounds to internal organs or major arteries are able to close up instantaneously. And Joe has accomplished all this by his third year of college at NYU.

    Ever since word started spreading July 5 of the bleeding Virgin Mary statue in the front yard of a house on Broadmoor Circle, the once quiet dead-end street has transformed into a bustling scene lined with yellow police tape and cars from all over the country. “The Wisconsin license plate kind of struck me,” said neighbor Greg Miller, 52. “But there have been California, Florida, a lot of other out-of-state plates. It seemed for a while like it might be the No. 1 tourist attraction in town.” The home is owned by Hoa Nguyen, who is from Vietnam and does...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Top Pentagon contractors have been bleeding secrets for years as a result of penetrations of their computer networks, current and former national security officials say. The Defense Department, which runs its own worldwide eavesdropping, spying and code-cracking systems, says more than 100 foreign intelligence organizations have been trying to break into U.S. networks. Some of the perpetrators "already have the capacity to disrupt" U.S. information infrastructure, Deputy Defense Secretary William Lynn, who is leading remedial efforts, wrote last fall in the journal Foreign Affairs. Joel Brenner, the National Counterintelligence executive from 2006 to 2009, said most if...

Students at San Francisco's novel Three Strikes Project, which has successfully overturned 14 life prison terms handed down for non-violent crimes under California's unforgiving sentencing law, are joined by an unusual coalition in their latest bid.

    I just talked to Mindy's sister. She said that the babie's intestines had folded over on itself. She had been fussy and when she spit up and poo'd it had blood in it. That's how they knew Mindy was sick. The doctors did a barium enema and the intestines untwisted. They will keep her over night for observation and if things keep going well they will release her to go home tomorrow. The dotor will have to operate if the part of her intestines that was damaged, doesn't stop bleeding. That's the danger now. So keep praying, prayer warriors, I...

    Images that for the first time show bleeding inside the heart after people have suffered a heart attack have been captured by scientists, in a new study published January 19 in the journal Radiology. The research shows that the amount of bleeding can indicate how damaged a person's heart is after a heart attack. The researchers, from the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre at Imperial College London, hope that this kind of imaging will be used alongside other tests to create a fuller picture of a patient's condition and their chances of recovery. People suffer heart attacks when an artery that...

    From Times Online October 3, 2008 US banks borrow record amount from Fed Catherine Boyle US banks borrowed a record $367.8 billion (£208 billion) a day from the Federal Reserve in the week ended October 1. Data from the US central bank shows how much financial institutions are relying on the Fed in its role as lender of last resort as short-term funding becomes almost impossible to find elsewhere. Banks' discount window borrowings averaged $367.80 billion per day in the week ended October 1, nearly double the previous record daily average of $187.75 billion last week. With interbank lending and...

    A startup is planning human trials for a nanostructured material that quickly stops bleeding. A startup based in Cambridge, MA, says that it plans to soon begin clinical trials of a nanostructured material that stops bleeding almost instantly. A startup called Arch Therapeutics has licensed the technology from MIT and is developing manufacturing processes for making it in large amounts. The new material can be poured over a site and will stop the bleeding almost at once. The first application, pending Food and Drug Administration approval, will be for use during surgery to quickly stop bleeding and even prevent it...

    Online Video: Noted Endocrinologist Dispels the Myth of Health Benefits of the Pill - Part 2 By Elizabeth O'BrienOTTAWA, August 9, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The lecture of noted endocrinologist Dr. Maria Kraw, speaking at the Humanae Vitae Conference "A New Beginning" last year, described the serious medical risks involved in taking hormonal birth control. It also debunked the common myths of the so-called "health benefits" of the pill. She began by noting that one of the major risks of taking hormonal contraceptives is an increased risk of cancer. Looking at 54 studies of the pill, she observed that researchers found...

    A team of researchers at MIT and the University of Hong Kong have developed a biodegradable liquid that can quickly stop bleeding. Composed of peptides, the liquid self-assembles into a protective nanofiber gel when applied to a wound. Rutledge Ellis-Behnke, research scientist in the department of brain and cognitive sciences at MIT and Kwok-Fai So, chair of the department of anatomy at the University of Hong Kong, discovered the liquid's ability to stop bleeding while experimenting with it as a matrix for regrowing brain cells in hamsters. The researchers then conducted a series of experiments on various mammals, including rodents...

    A biodegradable protein solution stanches bleeding in mere seconds when applied to open wounds in rodents, according to a new study. How the material works in detail is unclear, but it appears nontoxic and long lasting in animals, suggesting that it may either have advantages over existing bleeding stoppers or be able to complement them, researchers report. A number of different products are in use or are being developed to control bleeding on the battlefield and in routine surgery. All of them have drawbacks, including the potential for excessive heat, blood clots and allergic reactions. The new liquid does not...

Arriving on the scene, he found an elderly man sitting on a tractor, with a large hole in his leg that was bleeding profusely. Realising it would be some time before the ambulance arrived, Johnson opened a packet of sand-like material and poured it into the wound. Within seconds the bleeding had practically stopped,...

    MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (Feb. 17, 2006) -- Critical medical operations to save the life of a wounded comrade are extremely stressful in the rear, where there is proper medical equipment. Conducting them in the back of a humvee while it speeds through a hail of shrapnel and small arms fire, however, is a true test of one’s proficiency and courage. Petty Officer 1st Class Nathan McDonell faced and overcame that challenge a year ago in Iraq and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for it during a ceremony at Camp Margarita Feb. 17. “I accept this recognition...

    Associated Press CHICAGO — Heart-attack patients are often given overdoses of powerful blood-thinning drugs in the emergency room, increasing their risk of serious bleeding, a study found. Of 30,136 heart-attack patients who were treated last year at 387 U.S. hospitals, 42 percent got excessive doses of blood thinners. Overdoses were particularly common in thin people, women, the elderly and people with kidney problems. Those given too much of two newer blood thinners — low molecular weight heparin and drugs sometimes called "super-aspirin" — had more than a 30 percent increased chance of major bleeding than those given the recommended dose....

    It's Saturday evening, the end of a hot day, and a group of women and children have gathered at North Seattle's Meadowbrook Pool for their monthly swim. Most of the pool staff has left, except for two female lifeguards, who on this day will be on duty for the next two hours. The women and children — all Muslims — have been swimming in private once a month at Meadowbrook as part of a program organized by the North Seattle Family Center. Because Islam requires Muslim women to fully cover themselves in public, swimming in pools or the ocean is...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger held out hope Friday that a compromise still could be found with Democrats to head off a bruising campaign over his reform proposals on the Nov. 8 special-election ballot. In a wide-ranging discussion with Daily News editors and reporters, Schwarzenegger blamed unions and other "special-interest forces" for fostering the legislative disputes that led to the impasse over his reform proposals and the need for the special election. The governor said he is meeting with Democratic leaders in the hopes of developing compromises to his initiatives that would impose caps on state spending and revise the funding formula...

    I believe that I have found a natural medicine (refluxed pure natural rubber, and since natural, basically unregulated by FDA) that is anti – carcinogenic and may cure cancer, and natural rubber (the longest known molecule), seams to have the ability to also stop bleeding once in the blood system, which in many cases is the first sign of cancer as an cancerous ulcer. The German scientist Paul Ehrlich (1854-1915) came up with the concept in medicine of a magic bullet that would kill bacteria but not harm Humans. He had some success with an arsenic compound that he add...

    The patient is bleeding us dry but shows few signs of getting better (Filed: 25/09/2003) Labour vowed to save the NHS - but it is proving an expensive promise. In the fourth part of our investigation into the state of public services Celia Hall gives the money-hungry beast a check-up. During almost 20 years in opposition, there was one issue on which Labour could rely for voter support: the National Health Service. It had been the party in power when the NHS was established in 1948 and felt that it possessed proprietorial rights. As demands for health care grew, Labour...
