  • First COVID-19, now mosquitoes: Health officials brace for eastern equine encephalitis [FUD]

    Sophia Garabedian had been dealing with a persistent fever and painful headache when her parents found her unresponsive in her bed one morning last fall. Doctors ultimately diagnosed the then-5-year-old Sudbury, Massachusetts, resident with eastern equine encephalitis, a rare but severe mosquito-borne virus that causes brain swelling. Garabedian survived the potentially fatal virus after about a month in Boston hospitals, but her parents say her ordeal and ongoing recovery should be a warning as people take advantage of the outdoors this summer. “It’s been a rough year,” said David Garabedian, her father. “With any brain injury, it’s hard to tell....
  • Michigan advises against outdoor activity due to deadly mosquito-borne virus

    State health officials have advised residents in eight counties to avoid being outdoors during evening hours after three people died of a mosquito-borne disease in Michigan amid what officials are calling the “worst outbreak” in more than a decade. How that advice might affect events planned in those communities is less clear, with local school districts and other institutions still discussing whether they will take advice to cancel or postpone evening outdoor activities. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, in a news release sent Tuesday, Sept. 17, warned the public to avoid outdoor activities at dusk and encouraged...

    While mosquitoes are often associated with West Nile virus, there is another mosquito-borne virus that is currently making headlines: the Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) virus, a rare disease that can cause inflammation in the brain (called encephalitis). It mainly affects people in parts of the Great Lakes region, along the Eastern seaboard, and the Gulf Coast. Now, a fifth case in humans has just been confirmed in Massachusetts, and EEE activity has been detected in 10 counties there, according to the Massachusetts Department of Health. As a result, many outdoor activities in areas of concern have been canceled or postponed,...

    A Massachusetts woman passed away this weekend after contracting eastern equine encephalitis, a rare mosquito-borne disease that can target the central nervous system. After her death, the woman’s daughter shared a touching tribute to the woman who taught her how to live life to the fullest. Laurie Sylvia started noticing symptoms just six days before her death at the age of 59. According to WCVB-TV, the cause of Sylvia’s death was, in fact, EEE, though the illness is incredibly rare in the United States. The virus, transmitted through mosquitos, causes brain infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The...

    U.S. Attorney John Durham has already used a grand jury in Connecticut, attorney Joe diGenova said on Tuesday. It was revealed this week that Attorney General William Barr tasked Durham with examining the origins of the federal Russia investigation. In a Fox News interview, diGenova said Durham, who is a U.S. attorney in Connecticut, has been working for a couple of months. "Durham has already used a grand jury in Connecticut, they've already gotten documents, he's already talked to the intel people," he said.
  • Microsoft is going to ship a full Linux kernel in Windows 10 (and No, you're not hallucinating)

    Microsoft has surprised many in the Linux developer community in recent years. Surprises have included bringing things like adding the Bash shell to Windows, or native OpenSSH in Windows 10, and even including Ubuntu, SUSE Linux, and Fedora all in the Windows Store. Microsoft is now going even further, with plans to ship a full Linux kernel directly in Windows 10.“Beginning with Windows Insiders builds this Summer, we will include an in-house custom-built Linux kernel to underpin the newest version of the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL),” explains Microsoft program manager Jack Hammons. “The kernel itself will initially be based...
  • In Matthew Whitaker, Trump has a loyalist at the helm of the Justice Department

    Matthew G. Whitaker, President Trump’s pick to temporarily helm the Justice Department, provides Trump with the leader he has long sought at the law enforcement agency: a political loyalist critical of the special counsel probe. Before Whitaker joined the Trump administration as a political appointee, the Republican lawyer and legal commentator complained that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation of Russian interference in the election and of the Trump campaign was dangerously close to overreaching. He suggested ways it could be stopped or curtailed and urged his followers on Twitter to read a story that dubbed the investigators “Mueller’s...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham said in an interview Monday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions may step down after this week’s midterm elections. “Jeff will probably step down. We’ll have a new attorney general most likely early next year,” Mr. Graham, South Carolina Republican, said on conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt’s radio program.

    Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and AG Jeff Sessions are working hand-in-hand on dismantling the Deep State. Deep State corruption is deep and embedded. No normal investigation is going to cut it. Enter The Donald. Critics of Sessions need to understand that Sessions is a prosecutor in the traditional, Wyatt Earp sense. He doesn't camera hog He rarely gives press releases, media interviews, or conferences. He does the work diligently behind the scenes. Why (Nicolas Cage from the movie "The Rock" here) IN ZEUS' BUTTHOLE! is Sessions all of a sudden a Deep State mole, when for years he's been a...

    Free Republic traditionally frowns on vanities. I know, I've been a member here since 1999. I too have had my knuckles cracked by the Moderator's ruler and my posts promptly yanked or locked because I could have easily responded on an existing thread. Vanities crowd out the real news. They're too numerous to count, and most vanities do nothing but stoke the poster's ego (ME! ME! ME! I WANNA BE THE NEXT GEORGE WILL!). And most of them are frankly, quite boring. However, some vanities do serve a legitimate purpose. Breaking news, for example is one. When FReepers hear about...

    LONGMEADOW, Mass (WWLP) — While Saturday wasn’t too hot or humid, like most of our summer has been, 22News found that our recent weather conditions have contributed to the arrival of a potentially deadly disease in the Bay State. Mosquitoes: we’ve talked about them for months, and for the first time this year mosquitoes have infected someone in Massachusetts with eastern equine encephalitis, or triple E. The Massachusetts Department of Health just confirmed that a July 15th laboratory test in Plymouth County has tested positive for EEE, a dangerous virus that can cause inflammation of the brain and in one...
  • [Vanity] Stop the Herman Cain for President nonsense

    I'd never thought I'd see the day when conservatives fully embrace affirmative action. The myopic and destructive support for Cain for President is TOTALLY based on the simple fact that he's an articulate black man and self-made businessman, so conservatives can say, "See! See! We're not racists, we love black guys too!" But so was bland boring white guy John Cox, a businessman who ran for President in 2008, also without having zero experience in elective office. So where was the support for him? Please spare me the inevitable BS about how you'd rather support a businessman (or use...
  • Second-gen Eee PC a CES no-show (Asus)

    CES Asus today committed itself to expanding its Eee PC line-up not only with WiMax wireless broadband-enabled versions but also machines with 7, 8 and 8.9in displays. They'll appear in Q2, Asus said. However, the anticipated second-gen Eee PC failed to make its anticipated appearance. The larger screen size – rumoured for some time – will provide a resolution of 1024 x 600, Asus said. That addresses one of the chief limitations of the current, 7in Eee PC: its 800 x 480 resolution, which isn't too much of a problem for Linux, but doesn't play so well with Windows. Future...

    ASUS have released a cheap subnotebook. It is far from state-of-the-art tech-wise, with 512Mb RAM and a Celeron processor. It has a 4Gb hard drive and no optical drive. Its screen is 7” and runs at the odd resolution of 800x480 and the operating system looks like something Fisher Price might have designed. Why would you buy it? What on earth can you do with this? The answer is lots. Sure, the things I said above are true. But don’t be deceived by a small glimpse at its hardware specs – there’s so much more which can be said. I’m...

    Who in the *** is Asustek, and why does Microsoft hate them more than any other company in the industry? Why does Apple, Dell and Palm Computing hate them? And why does Intel love them? Taiwan's Asustek -- better known as ASUS -- is one of the most interesting, innovative and fastest-growing companies in technology. At its core, Asustek makes motherboards -- more than any other company. Asustek motherboards are the heart of Sony's PlayStation 2 consoles, Apple MacBooks, Alienware PCs, and some HP computers. But that's not why they're hated. The source of ire is a tiny laptop called...

    9-Year-Old Boy Dies After Mosquito Bite John Fontaine Got Eastern Equine EncephalitisPOSTED: 7:44 am EDT September 1, 2006 UPDATED: 8:12 am EDT September 1, 2006 BOSTON -- A 9-year-old Middleboro, Mass., boy died from Eastern equine encephalitis Thursday. He is the state's first EEE fatality this year. John Fontaine developed a fever on Aug. 18 and was hospitalized two days later. His two-week battle with EEE ended at Boston Children's Hospital Thursday morning. Middleborough was among the communities in southeastern Massachusetts that have undergone two rounds of aerial spraying to kill the mosquitoes that carry the virus. The first round...
