[NYP] A South Carolina woman died this week during a family vacation in the Bahamas, according to a report.
Molly F. Greene, who is the co-founder of Water Mission, drowned on Wednesday, news station WCBD reported.
Through her nonprofit, Greene was dedicated to supplying clean drinking water in disaster areas and developing countries.
She and her husband, George, founded Water Mission in 2001 after learning of the conditions in Honduras following Hurricane Mitch.
"In the aftermath of their Honduras trip, Molly and George discovered the sad truth about the global water crisis ‐ that billions are forced to drink dirty water every day," the nonprofit said. "In 2001, the Greenes took action to combat this reality and founded Water Mission."
The Diocese of South Carolina in Charleston confirmed Greene’s death Wednesday in a statement.
"Please pray for George Greene and family on the death of his wife Molly," the church said. "Molly, Co-founder of Water Mission, died in an accidental drowning earlier today in the Bahamas. Many in our Diocesan community know the Greenes."
What I wonder is if the guy that panicked and screamed will be one of those who'll end up wanting to be the first to go jump again. I noticed one of the cadets appeared to be female. I had a dream that to graduate from Harvard you had to go through that Russian Jump.
[AlAhram] A woman who died this month of Ebola may have carried the disease into Rwanda, the World Health Organization said on Thursday, a day after it declared an outbreak in neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo ...formerly the Congo Free State, Belgian Congo, Zaire, and who knows what else, not to be confused with the Brazzaville Congo aka Republic of Congo, which is much smaller and much more (for Africa) stable. DRC gave the world Patrice Lumumba and Joseph Mobutu, followed by years of tedious civil war. Its principle industry seems to be the production of corpses. With a population of about 74 million it has lots of raw material... an international health emergency.
The Congolese woman was a fishmonger who vomited multiple times at a market in Uganda on July 11, a few days before she died, a Ugandan Health Ministry report published by the WHO said on Wednesday.
The WHO said on Thursday that the ministry suspected that, while infected, the woman had also gone to the Congolese city of Goma and Gisenyi in Rwanda on business. Rwanda has never had a recorded case of Ebola.
Three people died in Uganda last month during the current epidemic, which has killed almost 1,700 people in 11 months. But they did not spread the disease further in Uganda, and the rest all died in Congo.
Labelling the outbreak an international emergency is a rare designation through which the WHO aims to galvanise global support to stop it from spreading further.
The move was prompted in part by the case of the fishmonger and by that of a pastor who died of Ebola after going to Goma, a city of 2 million on the Rwandan border.
Rwanda's health minister was not immediately available for comment. "I can say no more!" while Ugandan Health Ministry front man Emmanuel Ainebyona said Ugandan and Congolese health workers were trying to find people at risk following the market episode.
"The team from Uganda has visited Mpondwe Market (where the fishmonger vomited) and carried out tests on the traders, but no one has been found to be positive of the Ebola virus," he said.
The team was still monitoring the traders who had been tested.
People vomiting at fish markets? Lovely. In what parallel universe is that acceptable, among any local group? They just let her walk around throwing up? I'll add that to my list of things (of things I never thought I'd have to itemize) to watch out for while out shopping.
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] A passenger accused of misbehavior on a Jet2 flight that had to return to London’s Stansted Airport in June has received a huge bill from the airline.
The airline has accused Chloe Haines of "aggressive, abusive and dangerous behavior" on a flight and sent her a bill for $106,000.
Officials say the plane bound for The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire... had to return to Stansted Airport escorted by two Royal Air Force jets.
Jet2’s CEO Steve Heapy said Thursday that the airline will try to recover the costs incurred as a result of the diversion.
Heapy said Haines’ actions were "one of the most serious cases of disruptive passenger behavior that we have experienced."
The 25-year-old British woman was arrested by Essex Police when the plane landed and is free on bail.
For the last few days BBC news has been wildly ranting against Trump with this issue. News reports have all sorts of expert interviews with NO NAMES or origin of most of the "EXPERTS" ranting. The BBC interviewers have been spewing anti-Trump bullshit too. Perhaps it is time to officially consider BBC to be an enemy combatant source of FAKE NEWS? Even more than RT and the Russian's were in the 2016 election?
A few days ago, Mrs. Bobby's newspaper had a front-page article about global warming. All 12 models agreed the 2050s were gonna be the hottest since - of, I don't know - since lava covered the planet.
I scanned the article until I found this gem: All the models start in 1950.
[Townhall] Reverend Patrick Conroy serves as the House of Representatives Chaplain in Washington, D.C. and regularly starts the day off for lawmakers with prayer. Thursday's invocation was a little more serious than most days for Rev. Conroy. The Roman Catholic Priest prayed specifically to cast out the demons inside Capitol Hill.
As reported by Fox News, Rev. Conroy said, "This has been a difficult and contentious week in which darker spirits seem to have been at play in the people’s House."
Then, in a dramatic moment, Conroy raised both hands and said, 'In Your most holy name, I cast out all spirits of darkness from this chamber. Spirits not from You. I cast out the spirit of discouragement which deadens the hope of those who are of goodwill.'"
"I cast out the spirit of petty divisiveness which clouds the sense and the desire to be of fruitful productivity and addressing the issues more appropriately before this House," he prayed. "I cast out any sadness brought on by the frustration of dealing with matters detrimental to the honorable work each member has been called to engage in."
Rev. Conroy is a Jesuit priest, an order of the Catholic Church. He has been serving as House Chaplain since 2011. He attempted to resign in 2018, but, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle asked him not to. He withdrew his resignation.
[DAWN] A four-year-old child who survived sexual assault and attempted murder has been moved from the paediatric intensive care unit at the Pakistain Institute of Medical Sciences to a ward.
The hospital’s spokesperson Dr Wasim Khawaja told Dawn that the child is in far better condition than she was when she was brought to the hospital last week, adding: "She is out of danger."
However, man does not live by words alone, despite the fact that sometimes he has to eat them... he said, it would take time for her to recover from the trauma and that would depend on the manner in which she is treated and the atmosphere in which she lives.
He said she is still weak, and is having difficulty with speaking and movement.
He said a team of doctors are observing the child and she is receiving treatment for the trauma.
Her ward is also under surveillance, and security is in place in and around the ward and outside her room, he said. Hospital security, police and Counter Terrorism Force personnel are providing security.
The team of doctors treating the child have permitted the police to speak to her, but only in the presence of medical professionals, he said.
The police have attempted a few times to record her statement, but Dr Khawaja said her condition deteriorated every time. He said she is also failing to recall and narrate what happened.
The child’s father also said that although she is behaving normally, her condition deteriorates whenever the incident is brought up. He said the police had tried to speak to her three times.
He said that she has so far told family and police that a man approached her when she was playing outside and told her her brothers were playing near the bushes and asked her to accompany him to join them.
The child’s father said that the man then took her to the bushes and began to strangle her. He quoted his daughter as saying that she heard her mother shouting for her when she was lying in the bushes but could not answer, despite trying.
Police officers told Dawn the case is being investigated, with assistance from various departments and agencies. Geo-fencing is almost complete and suspicious numbers are being selected so the status of their users can be verified and checked, they said.
Investigators are also collecting details from family and neighbours regarding their suspicions and children have been asked about people who have ever teased them or offered them anything.
DNA profiling of suspects picked up by Sherlocks is also in progress, they said.
[USA Today] Avoid Big Penis supplements, the Food and Drug Administration again urged consumers this week.
The product promoted for sexual enhancement violates FDA regulations by containing a prescription drug without clearly disclosing it does, according to a public notification issued Wednesday.
Regulators previously advised consumers not to purchase or use Big Penis Male Sexual Stimulant three years ago. The FDA also identified the supplement while examining international mail shipments then.
The supplement contains sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra and other erectile dysfunction medications, according to the FDA. The drug can lower blood pressure to "dangerous levels" when taken with prescription drugs containing certain nitrates, including nitroglycerin, the FDA said in its notice.
Doctors and patients who experience side effects from the product can report the issues to the FDA's MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program.
[Wash Times] A judge has awarded about $6.5 million in attorney's fees and court costs to Gibson's Bakery, the family-owned Ohio doughnut shop that won a $25 million judgment against Oberlin College over protests accusing the business of racism.
Lorain County Judge John Miraldi made the ruling on fees Wednesday, bringing the total award against Oberlin to nearly $32 million. Oberlin attorneys have indicated that they plan to appeal, according to the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.
Last month, Gibson's Bakery won a $44 million jury verdict for libel and wrongful business interference over Oberlin's involvement in student protests that labeled the bakery racist after three black students were arrested for shoplifting in November 2016.
The $44 million judgment was later reduced to $25 million under Ohio's tort-cap law, but the enormous award has fueled a debate over the responsibility of colleges in protecting student free speech versus promoting an overheated social-justice protest narrative.
$32m will eat up most of their operating budget. Note that you can't use the endowment to fund operations because the endowment has strings attached by the donors: "use my money ONLY for research," or to build science labs or engineering buildings etc.
This means Oberlin won't be able to offer financial aid to would-be SJW applicants to Oberlin, which means that the only way out of Oberlin's financial hole is to attract super-wealthy applicants willing to drop nearly half a million $$$$ on a buttwipe BA gained through 4+ years of SJW nonsense.
There are plenty such people, but they will not be going to Oberlin - they can go to any of 20+ little liberal arts colleges that are more financially-stable than Oberlin.
For the curious, a Q&A with Lee Plakas, super-lawyer who won the suit for defamation (and tortious interference in their business) on behalf of the shopkeepers, the Gibson family of Oberlin:
