Third Health Care Worker Treating First U.S. Ebola Patient Quaranteend for Possible Ebola

By The Prophet of Life
A Health Care Worker who may have handled a specimen from Eric Thomas Duncan has been quarantined on a Carnival cruise ship in the Caribbean. Personnel on the ship, the Texas based Carnival Magic, this was done to protect other passengers from possible contamination. The woman reportedly has not shown any symptoms of the virus. This is the 19th day of the 21 day incubation period from the time of contact to the time when Ebola begins showing symptoms in those who contract it. If Ebola is actually proven to be on the ship, it might not be allowed to dock anywhere.

A Second Health care worker who treated Eric Thomas Duncan, the first Ebola Patient Diagnosed in the U,S, has tested positive. Amber Vincent contracted the virus and showed symptoms while on a trip to Cleveland. She got on the plane returning to Dallas with a temperature. Vincent was isolated within 90 minutes of reporting a high temperature at work and has been sent to Emery University Hospital in Atlanta GA by private jet. Nina Pham, the First nurse who contracted the virus from Duncan, is in good condition at the Texas Hospital where Duncan was treated and died. The hospital’s protocols for protecting its workers have been called into question. A Spokesman for Emery University Hospital in Atlanta Georgia stated that none of their health care workers contracted Ebola despite the fact that they have treated three Ebola patients, Americans who contracted the virus in Africa. Several people who came into contact with Duncan before he was admitted to the hospital are being monitored for Ebola symptoms.

Eric Thomas Duncan, The First Ebola Patient Diagnosed in the U.S. Died today. he came from Liberia. He helped take a sick woman to the hospital on September 16th and she died of Ebola a few days later. Mr. Duncan either came to the U.S. to visit relatives or to seek better treatment for Ebola than he could get in Liberia. He was treated with an experimental drug, put on dialysis and a respirator but died anyway.

The first case of Ebola has been diagnosed in a patient in the United States. He came on a plane from Liberia to visit relatives in Texas. The Plane arrived on September 20th. According to doctors, the man showed no signs of infection when arriving in the U.S. but became sick on September 24, four days after arriving.

Two days later he went to a hospital and was put in isolation pending outcome of tests. The tests proved he tested positive for the Ebola Virus. The patient remains in isolation. The man was not a health care worker or a mortician so how he came into contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person is unclear. Coming into contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person is the main way most people contract Ebola.

Officials from the CDC stated that it is almost impossible for Ebola to spread in the U.S. to the point that it has in some nations in West Africa because of America’s “Robust” health care system. The current outbreak of Ebola has claimed thousands of lives in West Africa.

The Woman Who Has not Eaten A Morsel of Food for 14 Years

By The Prophet of Life

What is more important, ones personal spiritual conscience or a Government Policy? Government policy is meant to benefit the many, personal conscience is product of the philosophy of an individual. Which is more important? At what point and under what circumstances should a person follow thier personal spiritual conscience even when it flies in the face of their government? 

One ritual in faith is self denial through fasting. One ritual of faith for those who are trying to changethings politically is going on a hunger strike. Irom Sharmiia hasn’t eaten for 14 years. She began a hunger strike to protest India’s Armed Forces Special Powers Act which suspends some rights in Northeastern India where there are problems with separatist insurgents. The law gives police and military officials powers in search and seizure, allows them to arrest without warrant and even allows them to kill suspected rebels.

In keeping with India’s laws against suicide, she has been kept imprisoned in a government hospital and force fed through a tube. Once a year, for the past 14 years she has been set free to see if she will start eating again. She never does. So back to prison she goes. Sharmila has said that she isn’t fasting to commit suicide only to protest the law until it is repealed. She has never resisted being force fed through a tube.

Is Irom Sharmila someone to be admired or is she just wasting her life? Is her hunger strike heroic or stupid? Please comment and let us know what you think her saga says about individual conscience Vs Government Policies or any other topics you believe her saga addresses.

What is Isis? Who Runs Isis? What is the Secret Behind Isis Success?

By The Prophet of Life

 Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi Leader of Isis

Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi
      Leader of Isis

As Western Nations meet in Paris to develop strategies to combat Isis, we take a look at the organization and its leader. Isis is a Jihadist Terrorist group led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He is a battlefield commander. A tactician who captures oil fields and banks in areas he over runs. Instead of burning the oil fields he keeps them pumping and sells the oil. Isis pulls in over a million dollars a day from oil and extortion. They have more sophisticated weapons than the soldiers of the nations they are attacking. Unlike other terror groups Isis has over 1,000 members from Western nations. They can easily slip back into any western nation without their passports being checked and carry out terrorist acts within any western nation.

Isis goal is to set up an Islamic State that encompasses Iraq, Syria and Turkey. An Isis annual report issued in June 2014 lists the # of assassinations, suicide bombings and knifings.  In July 2014 they ordered women aged 11 to 46 in Mosul, Iraq, to undergo female genital mutilation.

In August they trapped thousands of Kurdish families on a Mountaintop. As Isis lye in Siege, the Kurds pleaded for food. The International community air dropped food. As Kurds slipped away, U.S. Air Force Bombed Isis positions along the mountain. To retaliate Isis sent out a video showing the Beheading of American Journalist James Foley. They offered to spare his life in exchange for $132 Million.  They have more Western Prisoners they plan on executing.

Until the world unites to end Isis They will continue to be successful. They continue to impose,not Islamic Law but Insanity Law upon those unfortunate enough to be anywhere they control.

Is It A Crime To Be A Black Man in The United States of America?

By The Prophet of Life

Michael Brown, Ezell Ford, Trayvon Martin three names that are lightning rods for race relations in America. These three, African American young men and countless others who are not as well known, have something in common. They were shot by people with guns while they were unarmed.

These young men were all walking on public streets when they were stopped by people in authority, Brown and Ford by police officers and Martin by a Neighborhood Watch Captain. All three were accused of “scuffling” with the authority figures, literally grabbing for their guns in some cases. All three were shot to death by the person with the gun.

Why is this a familiar scenario for African American Males? Are African American Males so aggressive that when they are unarmed they will try to take a gun away from someone who has one? Is that just a convenient excuse for people trying to cover up homicides under the color of authority? Or, is there a racist perception of African American Males having superior strength and being aggressive that plays into people in authority, most of them non African American, over reacting and using deadly force?

When compared to their white counterparts, African American males in America are less likely to go to and / or finish college. They are more likely to be unemployed. They are more likely to be stopped by police, more likely to be arrested when stopped and more likely to lose when tried for any crime. They are also more likely to serve longer sentences in prison. With all of this is it any wonder that the average life expectancy for African American males in the U.S. is five years less than their white counterparts (70 vs 75 years)?

There are consistent stories in the press about African American Males resisting arrest. It seems unreal that African American Males would always resist arrest but it does seem plausible once you consider the statistics that African American Males are stopped by the police more often, convicted for crimes more often and draw prison more often and draw longer prison sentences more often than their white counterparts. It does follow logic that anyone who is targeted more often would tend to resist, knowing that once stopped they would be more likely to be arrested and once arrested, more likely to be convicted and more harshly punished.

My best friend is an attorney who also happens to be African American. He works providing the poor with free legal aid services. He commutes a lot between home and work and sometimes works long hours, getting off of work late at night. Although he has never been arrested and has always fully cooperated with the police he has been stopped a lot. We’re talking about a middle aged man driving a mini van. He believes he is stopped because he is black. Knowing him and knowing how law abiding he is and what a careful driver he is, I agree with him.

So, to answer the question posed at the beginning of this writing, Is it a crime to be an African American Male in America? The answer is technically no. African American Males, while not technically criminal are more likely to be treated like criminals and that speaks directly towards the racism of the American Justice System and the people involved in it.

The Prophet of Life

The Secret of Success

“When your mind, body and spirit are synchronized you are in tune with the ebb and flow of the universe. When you are in tune with the ebb and flow of the universe, you see possibilities that you never noticed before. When you see the new possibilities you act to create new possibilities. When you create new possibilities that are in tune with the ebb and flow of the universe, you become one with the universe.  When you are one with the universe, the universe replies with total acceptance.” —The Prophet of Life

Is There A Suicide Gene?

By The Prophet of Life

Is there a gene for suicide? A groundbreaking medical discovery could answer the question. A team of Doctors at Johns Hopkins University have identified a genetic bio marker that can accurately predict the risk of committing suicide. The marker indicates a person’s vulnerability to the effects of stress and anxiety. The marker is in a gene known as the SKA2 gene.

One of the functions of SKA2 is to create responses to stress and / or anxiety. The body reacts by sending stress hormones to help counteract the stress or anxiety.  Which usually causes a fight or flight response and forces people to work towards a solution to the thing that is causing the stress or anxiety.

 People with the genetic marker have an increase in a group of chemicals known as methyl, which impairs the genes function, thereby never shutting off the switch that sends the stress hormones. This increases the impact each and every stress has on the fear center in the brain. This modification, can, over time, become permanent, causing an increase in anxiety, mental disorders and even suicidal behavior.

Most people cope with stress through sublimation, thinking of or engaging in solutions to the cause of the stress or in a pleasurable activity to counteract the unpleasant feelings that come with stress or anxiety. People with the marker can become over stressed, anxiety ridden or have suicidal thoughts.

Researchers studied blood samples from 325 participants and were able to predict, within 80-90% accuracy, whether a person had thoughts of suicide or attempted suicide by the presence of the genetic biomarker. In the future this information could be used to determine if someone has a predisposition for suicidal thoughts or behavior. In time, there could a blood test for suicide or even be treatment developed that could cure the chemical imbalance that causes the genetic bio marker, thereby lessening the anxiety and  reducing suicide rates across the globe.

The Root Cause of Global Political Conflict

By The Prophet of Life

Battles raging between Israel & Palestine, Russia and Ukraine and in Iraq, Syria and Libya. Disease is more difficult to contain. The Ebola virus is spreading from a few nations in Africa to other parts of the world. Many people are asking themselves one question, why? Why is there so much global conflict?

Humanity has gone through more changes in the last 200 years than it had in the previous five thousand. This is because humanity has been passing from adolescence into adulthood. Our adulthood officially began on December 21, 2012. At that time a change occurred, but like most changes it merely was the beginning of a change, imperceptible to almost everyone. As time unfolds, however, the change shall become more apparent.

The narrow minded, selfish politics is the root cause of political strife across the globe. Leaders look at things solely from the point of view of their own nation, culture, religion or religious sect. People who look at things this way, advocating solely for their own group, often rise to power within that group. They are looked at as a voice or a champion for that group. It is that narrow mindedness that put them into a leadership position and, as we have seen with many leaders over time, once in power, few have the desire or courage to give that power up.

A new day is dawning in the global community. There is now, a strong global interdependence. No nation has the all of the natural resources it needs to completely sustain its people. In order to survive, all nations must trade goods with one another. The economy of individual nations depend on global economics. Because of this, conflicts are no longer regional because they have global consequences.

Those whose customs, views, religious practices and political actions go against the norms of the global community run the risk of being ostracized by the global community.  Ostracization (a word which I have created but will in time, be in vogue as the practice is implemented across the globe) can include a host of travel, economic and trade sanctions that can devalue currencies and ruin economies. Repressive regimes have been falling all across the globe. This will continue. Although there will be despots who cling to power until the bitter end, the end will come in time. A new leadership shall arise which looks at things from a global perspective.

There is a popular saying: “Think globally, act locally”. This has been the mantra of many for the last several decades. It is time for a new mantra: “Think Globally, act globally.”  Events will transpire which shall continue to drive home the point that we must live in harmony. That there must be mutual respect. That we must work cooperatively. The problems we are now facing and shall continue to face will be monumental in scale. So monumental that we will have to work cooperatively to survive. Take heart, nothing breeds harmony like adversity.

There are some who will think that this will fulfill a new world order, the rise of the antichrist, the end of the world or some other horrible consequence but they are wrong. In reality it is just part of our maturing process.  It will, in the end fulfill the destiny of our race, the human race, for there is only one race and we are, despite what others may tell you, all one people under the blood.

As a soul, you as an individual go from one incarnation to another, one culture to another, one nation to another. You have experiences from one life to the next and, if you are wise, you learn lessons from them that last from one incarnation to the ones which follow. Humanity as a whole has a collective soul.  The soul of humanity as a whole has a collective consciousness which learns collective lessons and has a collective destiny.

God only sends challenges to make us stronger and to prepare the way. It may not happen in our lifetime but in time, humanity will take its place, not as citizens of one global community but as citizens of a universal community. The lessons we shall learn during the times that shall follow will prepare us for this.
