Unlicensed Nurses Lead UN Ebola Crisis Team
by Tom McGregor    Thu, Oct 16, 2014, 11:22 PM

Numerous medical practitioners have denounced global health directors for lacking a proper response to the spread of the Ebola Virus. Perhaps, that's because the UN has appointed unlicensed doctors and nurses to take charge of its Ebola Crisis Team. Additionally, these so-called health experts have issued a formal travel health advisory recommending that Western African countries should not face any travel bans.

According to the United Nations Medical Services Division (UN MSD) Website, "The UN Medical Services Division (MSD) is monitoring closely the developments in the outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in West Africa and is supporting the preparedness and response efforts of our UN health facilities in affected countries. In line with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendations, MSD does not recommend a general ban on international travel. Each UN organization should assess the risk of duty travel of their staff to areas affected by Ebola in keeping with their health and safety obligations to staff. These areas may expose workers to an increased risk, and due consideration should be taken of the criticality of the activity to be performed during the duty travel, and every effort made to ensure staff health and safety and to minimize the risks of infection."

by Tom McGregor    Thu, Oct 16, 2014, 10:23 PM

The youngest son of Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter, was expelled from the U.S. Navy after testing positive for cocaine in a blood test.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "Hunter Biden, the youngest son of Vice President Joe Biden, has been kicked out of the military after testing positive for cocaine, two people familiar with the matter said Thursday. The Navy said that Biden, a former lobbyist who works at a private equity firm, was discharged in February — barely a year after he was selected for the part-time position as a public affairs officer in the Navy Reserve. Citing privacy laws, the Navy did not give a reason for the discharge, which was not disclosed until it emerged in the media on Thursday."
