Woman With Rare And Dangerous Form Of TB May Have Exposed Hundreds In Three U.S. States

Report: Patient With Rare & Dangerous Form Of TB Sent To NIH, May Have Exposed Hundreds In 3 States – Big Government

.

.
An unidentified female patient with an extremely rare and drug-resistant form of tuberculosis is being treated at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and authorities are reportedly attempting to track down hundreds of people who may have been in contact with her and exposed to the dangerous form tuberculosis.

According to an NBC report, the unidentified woman flew from India to the United States and “traveled to at least three states before she sought treatment from a U.S. doctor.” The patient was reportedly “isolated in a suburban Chicago hospital before she was sent to the NIH.”

“The patient traveled in April from India to the United States through Chicago O’Hare airport,” the CDC said in a statement to NBC. “The patient also spent time in Missouri and Tennessee. Seven weeks after arriving in the United States, the patient sought treatment for and was diagnosed with active TB.”

The CDC said it “will obtain the passenger manifest for that flight from the airline and will begin a contact investigation.” The agency said that though “the risk of getting a contagious disease on an airplane is low, public health officers sometimes need to find and alert travelers who may have been exposed to an ill passenger.”

But the unidentified woman does not have a normal case of tuberculosis.

She has what is known as XDR-TB (extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis), which is so rare and dangerous that the CDC reportedly “got reports of 63 cases between 1993 and 2011″ and “only about a third to half of cases can even be cured.”

Though ordinary TB is “hard to treat and requires, at a minimum, weeks of antibiotics,” XDR-TB “resists the effects of almost all the known TB drugs” and patients sometimes “have to have pockets of infection surgically removed.” In fact, XDR-TB is reportedly “so dangerous that health officials will have to make a concerted effort to warn anyone who may be at risk.”

According to the CDC, “TB bacteria are put into the air when a person with TB disease of the lungs or throat coughs, sneezes, shouts, or sings,” and “these bacteria can float in the air for several hours, depending on the environment. Persons who breathe in the air containing these TB bacteria can become infected.”

The NIH said that “the patient was transferred to the NIA via special air and ground ambulances” and is staying in an isolation room that is “specifically designed for handling patients with respiratory infections, including XDR-TB.” The special isolation rooms reportedly “control air flow to prevent germs from escaping into the rest of the hospital or outside.”

The woman reportedly “may face months or even years of treatment,” and, according to NBC, “the average cost of treating multidrug-resistant TB is $134,000, compared to $17,000 for a normal case.” The cost can even “shoot up to $430,000 for an extensively resistant case.” NBC noted that it is not yet clear at the moment who will pay for the patient’s extensive treatment.

Muslim Employee At Oklahoma Food Plant Tried To Convert Co-Workers; Ends Up Beheading 54-Year-Old Woman (Videos)

Muslim Beheads Woman In Oklahoma Food Plant; Tried To Convert Coworkers – Gateway Pundit

OKLAHOMA MUSLIM BEHEADS 54 YEAR-OLD WOMAN –

.

.
Muslim convert Alton Nolen beheads woman in Oklahoma, officials say.

He was a recent convert to Islam.

.

.
Colleen Hufford, 54, was killed when she was beheaded in the attack. According to authorities, there was no relation between the suspect and the two victims.

KFOR reported:

Officials with the Moore Police Department say the FBI is now involved in the investigation related to a brutal attack of workers at a food distribution plant.

Sgt. Jeremy Lewis says the alleged suspect, 30-year-old Alton Nolen had just been fired when he drove to the front of the business, hit a vehicle and walked inside.

He walked into the front office area where he met 54-year-old Colleen Hufford and began attacking her with a knife.

Sgt. Lewis confirms the type of knife used in the attack is the same kind used at the plant.

Lewis confirms that Hufford was stabbed several times and that Nolen “severed her head.”

At that point, Lewis claims Nolen met 43-year-old Traci Johnson and began attacking her with the same knife.

Officials say at that point, Mark Vaughn, an Oklahoma County reserve deputy and a former CEO of the business, shot him as he was actively stabbing Johnson.

“He’s a hero in this situation,” Sgt. Lewis said, referring to Vaughn. “It could have gotten a lot worse.”…

…The FBI is now looking into Nolen’s background after his former co-workers said he tried to convert them to Islam after recently converting himself.

Nolen’s criminal history dates back to 2011, including possession of a controlled substance, escape from detention and assault and battery on a police officer. According to the Oklahoma State Courts Network and The Heavy, Nolen has arrested for marijuana possession in 2009, assault and battery on a police officer in 2010, a traffic violation in 2006, driving with a suspended license in 2009, and cocaine with intent to distribute in 2006.

OKC FOX reported:

Through interviews with Nolen’s co-workers at the business, the Moore PD learned that the suspect had recently attempted to convert co-workers to the Muslim faith. The Moore PD has contacted the FBI in an effort to look more into Nolen’s background.

UPDATE: Moore police released the 911 calls associated with the brutal murder.

Elderly Woman Wiseliy Ignored 911 Dispatcher Who Told Her To Put Her Gun Down During A Home Invasion (Video)

911 Tells 80-Year-Old Woman To Put Gun Down During Home Invasion – EAGnews

An 80-year-old Florida woman grabbed her gun and called 911 during a home invasion. While the burglars were breaking a window to her residence, the police dispatcher told her to “put the gun down.” Huh?

N.J. Logan was upstairs resting from recent hip replacement surgery in her Holmes Beach, Fla. home, she heard a racket coming from the main level, according to MyFoxTampaBay:

I kept hearing a commotion, like there were people walking around down there. It is a little frightening. You know that you don’t have the security that you thought you had.

Logan was all alone – her husband was playing bridge at a friend’s house. That’s when she took matters into her own hands. She grabbed her gun and dialed the police emergency number as she headed downstairs.

“Once I realized it wasn’t my husband, you have no idea how fast you can go,” she said.

That’s when the dispatcher gave her the bum advice.

“When I called 911 she kept saying put the gun down, put the gun down, and I said I’ll put the gun down when I see the police,” Logan told the station.

“I believe in guns inside your house,” she added. “I don’t think anybody has the right to break into your private domain.”

Pennsylvania Woman Posed As Doctor To Perform Medical Exams On Truckers

Woman Posed As Doctor To Carry Out Medicals On Men – Bizarre World News

A woman was arrested for posing as a doctor and carrying out physical exams on men in her own home.

.
…………

.
Investigators claim Joann Elizabeth Wingate, 56, advertised her services to truckers who needed to have updated physicals to keep up their commercial driver’s license.

Wingate examined one driver who spotted a sign she posted at a truck wash.

But he got suspicious after being told there was a problem with her forms.

The trucker told cops that “Dr. Wingate” performed a complete exam, and even had him provide her with a urine sample.

Wingate, of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, was arrested on charges of forgery, fraud and identity theft. She is being held in lieu of $10,000 bail.

State Police officials report that Wingate, who charged $65 for an exam, displayed a bogus medical certificate that contained information corresponding with the license of Dr. Barbara Wingate, a Philadelphia-area psychiatrist.

The trucker told cops that “Dr. Wingate” picked him up in and old car and drove him to her “office.”

He thought it was odd the office was inside her home but ‘Dr. Wingate’ did “everything that a doctor would normally do during a physical.”

Investigators believe at least 16 drivers had physical exams conducted by the bogus doc this year.

During a search of Wingate’s home, police seized items used to conduct physical exams and urine tests and a large quantity of medical documents and advertising brochures.

They also found marijuana and narcotics paraphernalia in her home Wingate is scheduled for a July 16 preliminary hearing.

Woman Eats Pet Food For A Month To Prove It’s Just As Nutritious As People Food (Videos)

Woman Eats Dog Food For A Month To Prove It Is Just As Nutritious As Human Food – Oddity Central

A pet store owner in Richland, Washington, is putting herself in her clients’ shoes (or paws, if you will) for a whole month. Dorothy Hunter has decided to eat nothing but pet food for 30 days; the challenge began on June 19 and so far, she says she’s loving it. Her goal is to prove that food for pets can be just as nutritious and delicious as human food.

“You would be surprised how tasty dog and cat food can be when it’s made right,” said Dorothy, the owner of Paw’s Natural Pet Emporium. “You really are what you eat and it’s the same for your pets. I decided to eat this food for a month just to prove how good it tastes, as well as showcase nutrition.”

The idea for the project came to Hunter rather unexpectedly – she was stocking the shelves at her store one day, when she got hungry. “I didn’t have time to go get a snack, so I grabbed a bag of treats off the counter, and I was like, wow, you know, these read better than the normal people’s treats,” she said. “So I started eating the treats and I was like, you know, I could do this for 30 days.”

.

.
She is now a few weeks into the challenge, and she’s stuck to her word, eating nothing but cat and dog food – flakes of salmon and freeze dried chicken. “I’ve also been doing our oven baked blueberry treats, as well as freeze dried green beans, carrots,” she said. “I’m even doing some canned food, one is a succulent chicken, and it actually tastes really good. So I’m really happy with that one.”

“I don’t do raw bones or meat products like that, or the frozen because I’m just not into raw.”

Throughout the month, Hunter will only be eating pet food that’s sold at her store – free of corn, wheat, soy, by-products, fillers, corn gluten, BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin and propylene glycol. Some of the brands in her store are imported from as far as Italy; everything is carefully selected for its nutritional value. “You won’t find empty food in this store,” she claimed.

“I believe in our products and how good they are that I actually believe our pets are eating better than us.” In fact, she believes in her products so much that she’s willing to feed the stuff to her family and employees. Amanda Kempf, who has worked for Hunter for about nine months, said: “My kids love the dog treats as well, and I don’t mind them eating those because they are nutritious. Everything is labeled here so you know what you’re buying, and you’re buying nutrition.”

.

.
The experiment, Hunter said, isn’t about taste – she’s trying to spread a bigger message. “Learn about what you’re eating and what you’re feeding your pets. I think if we can get the awareness out of reading the ingredients, and really understanding what is in the pet food, that will eventually carry over. If you’re feeding your pet healthy, maybe you’ll start reading the ingredients of your own foods, and maybe you can start eating healthy too.”

Ever since she started eating pet food, Dorothy has noticed a few improvements in her health. “My feet aren’t swelling as much as they usually do after I’ve been on a 10-hour day,” she said. “I have lost 2.5 pounds, which I’m not going to complain about, but I’m not doing this to promote dog food, or to lose weight. But at the same time, I want to show that I believe in our products. I know people think this is crazy, but I can’t stress enough how important it is to read labels and see what’s in the food you eat – whether it’s pet food or human food. If this month of eating pet food enlightens people to the importance of that, then I’ll be happy.”

.

.
“If I can’t eat it, I won’t sell it because animals are important to me,” Hunter insisted.
