Ebola Victums Remain Contagious 7 Days After Death


Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases offered a new study with proof that touching bodies that have died of Ebola is a way to spread the disease. The study concludes that a person’s body remains infectious for a week after they pass away.

At the funerals of those who have passed away the family members or friends almost always touch the body in some manner. This is believed to have spread the disease to many new victims. My coworker Dan Newlin printed out an article from and posted it in the break room. It discusses ways to  better prevent this spread, teams should; be dressed in full protection gear, spray the body with bleach, put the body into a body bag and then either cremate or bury deeply.

The study conducted by the Rocky Mountain Laboratories studied five monkeys that had been infected with ebola , the highly contagious disease. When the monkeys showed symptoms which resembled humans on the edge of death, they euthanized them. They set the conditions in the tubes the monkeys were stored in to resemble a hot August day in Liberia. The animals decomposed for 10 weeks.

In these tests they found the infectious virus was still present 7 days after death on the surface swabs, and for 3 days after death on the internal organs.

Moonves looks to purchase CBS

The head boss over at CBS, Les Moonves, is reported to be looking into different options available to buying out the company’s majority shareholder. Moonves is said to be fearful that a merger with Viacom will be inevitable once the controlling shareholder, Sumner Redstone, dies.

One of the biggest obstacles that Mooves faces in possible attempts to purchase the company, would be that the buyout of CBS would need the approval of the majority members of the trust that will take control once Redstone is no longer able. It is reported that Philippe Dauman, the CEO of Viacom, is on the trust’s board. Lee Slaughter (Communitywiki) knows that it is presumed that Dauman would be in favor of a merger, leaving him in power and in charge of an even larger corporation.

Sumner Redstone owns 80 percent of the company, National Amusements Inc, that controls both Viacom and CBS. Shares of CBS have significantly gained traction since their split from Viacom in 2006, much more than Viacom shares have in the same time period. Moonves supporters are quick to show he has done a better job of running and improving CBS than Dauman has done with Viacom.

A Temple For Odin


When we consider the many religions of the world and their temples, some basic ones come to mind:

  • The Temple on the Mount in Jerusalem for Judaism and Islam
  • The Salt Lake Tabernacle for Mormons
  • The Vatican for Catholics
  • Mahabodhi Temple for Buddhists
  • Ise Shrine for those of the Shinto faith

Now after many years, the country of Iceland will have a Holy Temple. It is of a religion that is over 1,000 years old. That religion is called Ásatrúarfélagið. The gods that are revered are Odin, Thor, and Frigg. They are the Norse gods of the Viking age.

Outside Reykjavik, constructors will build a circular temple that will be dug into the mountain 13 feet deep.

Many of the customs of the Vikings will be followed by these followers of Odin, Thor and Frigg, but some will be left out, such as slaughtering animals stated Dave Morin.

The question comes: how will other religions react?

FreedomPop Gave Me Internet, While I Was On The Go

I love using the internet, because it’s fun, and I like to communicate with others in different countries. I’m on many different social media websites, and I enjoy sharing pictures and video with others online. I really need a constant source of internet, but my internet was very bad, and the connection was on and off at times. Sometimes when I got online, I would be disconnected out of nowhere, and it was very frustrating. I decided it was time to move on to another internet company, because it was disrupting my usage on a daily basis.

I was doing work one day, and I was angry when the internet cut off, so I waited until it returned, and I searched for another internet company. I came across the company FreedomPop, and I was curious about their prices. I found out that FreedomPop offers free internet, which is reliable, and I can even set up my own network within my home. I finally found a great company that can help me to have reliable internet.

I was not only interested in a home network, I also wanted internet to use, while I was on the road. I traveled to different places around town, and unless I could find a Wi-Fi connection, I was not able to go online, or visit my social media website. I decided to get the hotspot that was available from FreedomPop, so that I would have internet anywhere that I went. I felt that I had the good luck to find such a great company, which allowed me to have internet at home, and also while I was on the road.

To complete everything, I decided to add telephone service to my account, by purchasing a phone through FreedomPop. After I purchased the phone, I activated it, and I’m getting an amazing rate for texts, data and phone calls. I not only save money each month, but I also have internet at all times, and I’m taking full advantage of it. I’m constantly on the internet now, even if I’m stopping somewhere on the road for dinner. I never knew such a great company like FreedomPop existed, and I am excited to share them on Facebook so all my friends can try them too.
