California Is Having A Hard Week…
Death toll from Camp fire in Paradise fire swells to 23; 100 still missing The death toll from the most destructive fire in California history surged to 23 people on Saturday night, with more than 100 still missing in Butte County, officials said. The 14 more bodies were discovered Saturday, and fire crews are still searching through the burn area for more victims. More than 6,700 homes and commercial buildings have been lost in Butte County, making it the most destructive fire to property in state history. Huge swaths of the town of Paradise were lost. On Saturday, officials said the fire was still threatening Stirling City and Paradise Pines and headed toward Oroville. Defenses placed outside the city of Chico appear to be holding. Firefighters are concerned that strong northeasterly winds will return Saturday night, causing the fire to spread. “Extreme fire behavior with dangerous rates of spread are expected,” Cal Fire said in a statement.
California gunman was volatile but passed mental assessment Neighbors of Ian David Long described the man who shot and killed 12 people at a country music bar as distant in public but combative with his mother inside the suburban Los Angeles home the two shared. One ruckus in April was so extreme that they called law enforcement. Authorities brought in a mental health specialist who concluded that Long could not be involuntarily committed for psychiatric observation but worried the 28-year-old Marine veteran might have post-traumatic stress disorder. “The mental health experts out there cleared him that day,” Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said Thursday, the morning after Long opened fire inside a bar that was hosting a night for local college students. Julie Hanson, who lives next door to Long’s ranch-style home, described him as “odd” and “disrespectful” well before he left home a decade ago, got married and enlisted in the Marines, becoming a machine gunner. She could often hear him yelling and cursing, but several months ago unusually loud banging and shouting prompted her husband to call authorities.
Thousand Oaks gunman had a history of angry outbursts Ian David Long was a gifted sprinter whose fast-twitch muscles propelled him around the Newbury Park High School track. But one day during his senior year, each time he passed the girls’ head coach, he hurled invective in her face. And each time, Dominique Colell yelled back. “Another mile,” the young coach demanded, penalizing Long for each curse word. “He owed me 13 miles in one day,” she said. Later that year, Colell said, Long assaulted her. The coach found a cellphone and was searching through the contacts in hopes of identifying its owner when Long lunged. He screamed at her to hand over the phone and grabbed her stomach and buttocks, she said. “On my track field, students were going to be held to a standard,” Colell said. “Everybody went with it but him. I never recall [another] student cussing me or groping me.”

Measles: Past, Present, and Future In the United States children experienced measles infection prior to 1963 and the introduction of the first measles vaccine. For the vast majority of children it was a typical childhood infection that consisted of fever, runny nose, cough, and rash, and > 90% were immune by 15 years of age. It was exceptionally rare for it to cause death or other serious effects. Prior to vaccination it was viewed the same as we view today a common cold, fifth disease, or hand–foot-and-mouth disease. It’s also known that natural acquired immunity is far superior to the temporary immunity achieved via vaccination, as can be seen by the ever-increasing CDC recommended doses (for MMR ACIP approved a 3rd dose in outbreaks). Historical references show us that vaccination for this mild childhood infection wasn’t out of necessity, but possibility and political gain. “Many parents and many medical practitioners considered measles an inevitable stage of a child’s development. Debating the desirability of measles immunization, public health experts reasoned differently. In the United States, introduction of the vaccine fit well with Kennedy’s and Johnson’s administrations’ political commitments.”

Hour 2 – An Infectious Disease Calendar?
Not just flu: ‘Epidemic calendar’ shows seasonality of 69 infectious diseases Influenza is not the only infectious disease with a season. Analyzing published data, Micaela E. Martinez, PhD, assistant professor of environmental health sciences at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public, created an “epidemic calendar” she said shows the seasonality of 69 infectious diseases, including Ebola, gonorrhea and Zika. According to Martinez, seasonal drivers affect not only the transmissions of acute infectious diseases like measles but also contribute to flare ups of chronic infections such as hepatitis B. Her findings were published today in PLOS Pathogens. “Seasonality has been recognized for a number of acute infectious diseases, especially epidemic-prone diseases — things like influenza, cholera, polio, measles,” Martinez told Infectious Disease News. “But aside from those classic epidemic-prone diseases, which have been studied with great depth, infectious disease seasonality had not, to this point, been recognized as a ubiquitous feature of acute or chronic infectious diseases.”
Would Two Flu Shots Protect Me Better Than One? Children are one group that may benefit from receiving two doses of influenza vaccine during the same flu season. In a multistate study, boosting increased vaccine effectiveness by nearly twofold in children 6 months to 8 years of age. The benefit was greatest among infants receiving their first influenza vaccinations and was still evident in subsequent flu seasons. Other studies have yielded similar results. Because of this, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that “children 6 months through 8 years getting vaccinated for the first time, and those who have only previously gotten one dose of vaccine, should get two doses of vaccine this season.” Pandemic flu, a worldwide epidemic caused by genetic variations of the influenza virus, is another situation in which booster dosing may be worthwhile, since our immune systems are not primed to mount a response to the new virus. But vaccination strategies are complex and must be guided by governmental health agencies. Simply taking two doses of the currently available vaccine will not be protective.

How about some “Epic Epigenetic Evisceration” by NotADoc? It’s Diabetes Awareness Month – Or as we like to say CHROMIUM Awareness Month! Chris joins us to navigate through the causes and ways to reverse Diabetes.
Diabetes Awareness Month: What is the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes Diabetes is one of the most common chronic conditions in the U.S. today, with almost 30.3 million of people suffering from difficulties in managing their blood sugar. It is the seventh leading cause of death, and the No. 1 leading cause of kidney failure, adult-onset blindness, and lower limb amputation. Most people with diabetes have Type 2 diabetes, which is often associated with lifestyle choices and genetics. It is the type of diabetes that is caused because the body has trouble using insulin properly or can’t make enough. About 1.25 million suffer from Type 1 diabetes, which is an autoimmune disorder. It’s the type of diabetes that is a result of the pancreases not making any insulin. Both conditions result in difficulty regulating a body’s glucose — or sugar — levels, but due to very different reasons. Since November is Diabetes Awareness Month, it is a good time to answer frequently asked questions about the disease.
Congress’ Diabetes Caucus Seeks Transparency, Value-Based Contracts to Control Insulin Prices Value-based contracts and alternative payment models that remove rebates are just 2 ways that policy makers could rein in skyrocketing insulin prices, according to a new report from the Congressional Diabetes Caucus, a bipartisan group that spent a year asking why prices have soared over the past decade for a hormone some patients need to stay alive. The report, released Thursday, came on the first day of November, which is Diabetes Awareness Month. With the report came word that Sanofi would expand a program to help reduce out-of-pocket costs for people who use insulin. Out-of-pocket costs for insulin can exceed $600 a month, and some patients now ration insulin or skip doses. This spring, the CDC reported a rise in hospitalizations from diabetic ketoacidosis, which can occur when patients miss insulin doses.
Your Lifestyle Could Be Giving You Type 2 Diabetes by Changing Your DNA Changes to the expression of a gene responsible for managing important chemical messengers that keep glucose and fat metabolism in check could be behind the development of a number of cases of type 2 diabetes. A new study has advanced earlier research that showed low levels of a protein that bound to insulin-like growth factors made it more likely that mice developed type 2 diabetes. By finding the same effect in humans, we might be able to spot the disease earlier, and maybe even prevent its onset. Researchers from the German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbruecke (DIfE) and the German Center for Diabetes Research (DZD) carried out a population-wide study on the back of their earlier studies on insulin-like growth hormone binding proteins and the genes that produce them. Their findings suggest that for some people, type 2 diabetes could have its roots in the locking of just a single gene.
Did You Have These Toys As A Kid?
Toy Hall of Fame inducts Uno, Magic 8 Ball and pinball The Strong National Museum of Play announced the Magic 8 Ball, card game Uno and pinball are this year’s inductees into the National Toy Hall of Fame. The museum said the Magic 8 Ball, Uno and pinball were chosen from a field of finalists that also included American Girl Dolls, chalk, Chutes and Ladders, Fisher-Price Corn Popper, Masters of the Universe, sled, tic-tac-toe, Tickle Me Elmo, and Tudor Electric Football. Magic 8 Ball, introduced in 1946, features a fortune-telling experience with one of 20 answers to questions appearing at the bottom of the ball. “Millions of people have purchased a Magic 8 Ball in the last seven decades, and its wide appeal and quirky nature have helped it maintain popularity. According to some surveys, it’s one of the top 20 most popular toys of the 20th-century,” museum curator Michelle Parnett-Dwyer said. “The ‘Outlook is Good’ for Magic 8 Ball!” Uno was invented by Ohio barbershop owner Merle Robbins, who produced 5,000 decks of the crazy eights-like game and pitched them around the country before selling the rights to a manufacturer.
