Israel: Polio spreads, along with several other countries that the USA and other Western nations are taking. I wonder if it will work out the same as TB being reintroduced?

Refugee population by country or territory of asylum
Refugees are people who are recognized as refugees under the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees or its 1967 Protocol, the 1969 Organization of African Unity Convention Governing the Specific Aspects of Refugee Problems in Africa, people recognized as refugees in accordance with the UNHCR statute, people granted refugee-like humanitarian status, and people provided temporary protection. 

JERUSALEM—Israel’s president is urging the country’s children to get polio boosters after a rare appearance of the virus spread to the north of the country.
President Shimon Peres met with children getting vaccinations at a Jerusalem clinic on Wednesday together with Health Minister Yael German.
German said new lab results show the “virus is migrating north and spreading.”
Peres detailed the suffering his family endured when one of his children was stricken by polio as an infant.
Israel this week began a nationwide campaign to inoculate children with booster drops after a rare discovery of the virus in the south of the country.
Israel already immunizes its children against the disease. The campaign gives a second boost of protection.
There have been no clinical cases of the virus.
Polio is mostly considered eliminated globally except mainly in three countries where it is considered endemic: Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan.

When Clean Was a New Concept in the Operating Room

Today, keeping things clean as a way to ward off germs and infections just makes sense. But before antibiotic-resistant superbugs became a hospital’s biggest concern, there were the bad old days when doctors would move from surgery to surgery without washing. And surprisingly it was only during the 20th century that sterilization evolved from a simple and very new concept into one of the most important life-saving practices in medicine.

Effects about 1.7million a Year, killing almost 100,000 a Year and that is just the USA.

One of the world’s most famous polio patients, Franklin D. Roosevelt, spoke to a young girl who also had the disease while on the presidential campaign trail in 1932.
In 1910, the United States was dealing with a public health crisis — the relatively unknown virusPoliomyelitis, more commonly known as polio, was infecting large swaths of the American population. The disease spread through cities and even climbed up the socioeconomic ladder into the ranks of the elite,infecting Franklin Delano Roosevelt, perhaps the malady’s most famous victim, more than a decade before his rise to the presidency. By 1932 the country was still struggling to contain infection rates —the vaccine that ended the epidemic would not be developed until the 1950s — but much had been learned about the way the virus behaved. Once it became known that polio could be transmitted through the nose and mouth many hospitals ordered their staff to wear one additional item: a simple plastic shield over the face, which kept the virus from spreading.

Somalia suffers from world’s worst polio epidemic

Somalia is suffering an “explosive” outbreak of polio and now has more cases than the rest of the world combined, an official said Friday.
Vaccine-wielding health workers face a daunting challenge: accessing areas of Somalia controlled by Al-Qaeda-linked militants, where 7 of 10 children aren’t fully immunized.
Polio is mostly considered eliminated globally except mainly in three countries where it is considered endemic: Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan. India marked a major success in February 2012 by being removed from the World Health Organization’s list of countries plagued by the disease.
Somalia now has 105 cases, figures released Friday show, and another 10 cases have been confirmed across the border in a Kenyan refugee camp filled with Somalis. Globally there have been 181 cases of polio this year, including those in Somalia and Kenya. >more<

Funding Gap Threatens Progress Against Polio

(World Health Organization HQ, Geneva) – The world is closer than ever to ridding the planet of the polio virus,  but the global polio eradication effort faces a huge funding shortfall that may undermine humanity’s progress against the disease. – See more at:

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio SuburbsGANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

Mocking boys for doing "feminine" things leaves them ill-equipped for life, and makes America a worse place for all

The real boy crisis: 5 ways America tells boys not to be “girly”Clothing. Hair.Products.Sports.Stories.

The ability to feel what others feel has many well-documented benefits, including, for empathetic people, greater psychological and physical health. The real and socially significant positive impact of empathy, however, is the ways in which it affects behavior toward others. People who are empathetic are less aggressive and prone to denigrate others; they are predisposed to act with care and compassion; they have increased egalitarian beliefs and act with less prejudice and stereotype-based hatred. Empathetic behaviors, however, are associated with being female. And weak. The stereotypes that plague our lives teach that the characteristics of empathetic understanding are feminine: listening, sensitivity, quiet consideration and gentleness.  Empathy is feminized and boys learn quickly that what is feminized is, in a man, the source of disgust. While parents, teachers, coaches, grandp…
