This disturbing news was recently discussed by international researchers analysing mutated strains of bird flu circulating in the Egyptian environment. Their work does much to explain why, in the Month of May, three young adults and an unborn child have died in spite of medical treatment. The researchers analysed the genetic makeup of bird flu viruses isolated between 2006 and 2009 in Egypt and write, "[Circulation of mutated strains] among hosts may allow H5N1 virus to acquire amino acid changes enabling efficient bird-human transmission and eventually human-human transmission... [This research] helps explain why Egypt has recently had the highest number of human H5 cases worldwide."

"I can't believe that CBS chose to make the promo for [a late Oct '09 US first run episode of the tv comedy, The Big Bang Theory] all about me!

I doubt CBS are unaware many hundreds of millions of GenX/Yers from around the planet (but let's think China and India, here) will instantly recognize you from NG.

Re: Numb3rs -- "Ultra World" episode broadcast on Australian network tv last nite... Wil Wheaton's character was so retro OTT Joan "Alexis" Collins Dynasty-esque. Or, put another way, the guy which Wil portrayed -- Miles Sklar, comic book creator and world-class douche -- appeared frighteningly like a Perth-born GenX Oz gay male -- a narcisistic tosser who loves money and power... The cultural depiction was spot on -- a mewling spoiltbrat tactically manipulating all around for his exclusive benefit. Yes, even the "kind act" which Wil's character displayed at the close of "Ultra World" was cynically geared to maximize work and future investments. Wil, as a professional working actor, have you closely studied the West Australian GenX gay male psyche as a template for the Numb3rs character!?!

"[An] investigation showed the ducklings had died because they had not been given enough time to develop immunity from the disease after being vaccinated..." Crof, I entirely agree with your reasoning, there had to be active H5N1 "somewhere in the vicinity, and that source seems not to have been identified."

Mmmmnnnnn... Michael Fumento has indeed elaborated his case (or, money making position, if you prefer), via an evolutionary paradigm which "naturalizes" this transgenic (cross species) pathogen within some sort of "business as usual" format... Fumento: "In other words humans have been exposed to this thing for half a century with no evidence it's become the least bit more contagious to them. Small increases in the counted numbers of human cases over the last four years are probably nothing more than an artifact of better reporting..." Basically, Fumento doesn't get it! Using the science of global warming as an analogy, Fumento (like many other Babyboomers), delude themselves to why the ice caps are melting via billions of people using NRG in an inefficient manner... It's just too mind boggling to engage with the holistic picture... A transgenic pathogen such as H5N1!?! Well, it does involve a snifter of politics: C21*S*E*Research -- The Politics of Horizontal Gene Transfer (how the H2H H-this N-that virus evolved and painfully destroyed half the human species) I suspected genetic engineering was dangerous back in the late 90s when first seeing a tv news item on H5N1 contamination in Hong Kong -- six people (adults and kids) "cytokine storm" died of this transgenic flu during a late 1997 outbreak in Hong Kong's Special Administrative Region. Even a major pharma company, Roche, was worried back in 1997 'bout the global implications -- in its Media News 16 (May 2006) Roche says: "Roche has been in discussions with governments as early as 1997 regarding pandemic preparedness..." http://www.roche.com/med-cor-2006-05-16 So how did H5N1 get here? H5N1 is a transgenic polymorphic pathogen, a fast and fiesty fracker of a virus. This highly mutable cross species multi-strained virus probably originated from genetic engineering. Since the 1990s, consumption of GM (genetically modified) crops by wild and domestic birds, animals and humans (who eat crops, birds and animals) have increased dramatically. It is very probable GM crops containing CaMV 35S transcription promoter are the horizontal gene transfer (HGT) causation vector thru which transgenic viral pathogens (eg. H5N1) are recombining (homologously) into existence with such ease, speed and spread. The "homologous recombination" process has, according to Recombinomics.com, always been the explanation for viral evolution and not "random mutation". But, the thang bout the flawed technology of remix tweaking GM organisms (eg. crops) sees Las Vegas-styled "hyper-acceleration" and "unpredictability" entering natural DNA evolution -- thangs move a darned sight faster in dangerous directions... Recombinomics -- Random Mutation Explanation of Flu Genetics Is Fatally Flawed (March 30, 2006) @ http://www.recombinomics.com/News/03300602/Random_Mutation_Flawed.html The defence against evolving polymorphic viruses is rather simple and has been repeated many times by numerous scientists worldwide -- cease the corporate controlled release of genetically modified organisms within the global environment. Before the end of 2005, official gov-based efforts in sequence tracking the genesis of H5N1 were criminally lackluster -- we now know cross species strains are present in birds and mammalian populations across the entire planet... But still, the question remains unanswered, how did a transgenic virus with far reaching destructive power appear out of nowhere? The probable (but unproven) cross species vector is GM/GE crops eaten by wild birds, etc, from the 1990s to present, HGT recombining H5N1 (via CaMV 35S promoter) into a transgenic polymorphic pathogen, now infecting and killing humans with an ever increasing efficiency... So, basically I'm saying gene flow has occurred as a consequence of transgenic crops doing a CaMV 35S promoter recombination hotspot remix in the bellies (and bodies) of all organisms consuming such crops. Prof. Joe Cummins was the first to warn against using the CaMV 35S promoter or any viral genes in plants because it had been shown that such viral transgenes in plants could gene flow recombine with naturally occurring viruses to generate, in some cases, super-infectious viruses. Subsequently, the CaMV 35S promoter has been found to substitute for the promoter of many plant and animal viruses to produce infectious viruses. * Remixed excerpt ISIS Press Release 29/11/04 -- Fluid Genome & Beyond @ http://www.i-sis.org.uk/Fluidgenomeandbeyond.php

Victoria: "As we all know, no can impinge upon anyone else's rights to act as they please..." Howdy, as a genetically gay male freelance transgenic pathogen research analyst existing within a neo-nazi West Australian culture which inculcates queers into the role of "punching bags" for WA-born sociopaths, I find your "human rights sentiment" somewhat ironic: For example, take a squizz at the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission's "Same-Sex: Same Entitlements Report [ 2007 ]" @ http://www.humanrights.gov.au/human_rights/samesex/report/index.html Frankly, the report did not cover enough issues. For example in chapter eleven (6.2),"Connections between homophobia and mental health", there was no acknowledgement paid employees within the police and medicolegal system (((ENJOY))) packraping OUT gay men with their homophobic prejudices, thereby causing an otherwise healthy queer person to have a "breakdown" from the extreme ego-destroying stresses involved! Indeed, the West Aussie police force contains corrupt and violent elements which behave sociopathically toward OUT gay men such as myself (see below)!?! Wikipedia -- Western Australia Police http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Australia_Police Excerpt: "Public confidence in the service has come under intense scrutiny in recent years, due to reports of misconduct of police officers. Reported incidents range from pranks amongst junior officers brutality and assault of prisoners in custody, fabrication of evidence (such as in the case of the Perth Mint Swindle), through to corruption and links with organised crime by senior police..." *************************** Subject: Avian flu To: photoniqueer@yahoo.com From: Hazel.Mendonca@dh.gsi.gov.uk Date: Fri, 10 Mar 2006 15:04:28 +0000 Our ref: TO00000073916 10 March 2006 Dear Mr Singleton, Thank you for your email of 5 January [2006] to the Home Office about avian flu. As this is a health related matter, your email has been passed to the Department of Health for response. I have been asked to reply. With regard to a possible link between genetically modified food and avian flu, may I suggest that you address your concerns to the Food Standards Agency as they are best placed to comment on this matter... ********************* In March 2006, I received a positive legal email from Gloria Allred, a California attorney (see below): http://www.amglaw.com/bio/GloriaAllred.asp Her email concerns were focused on lawsuits vis a vis time periods -- this is ironic given two facts... * FOI have been stalling, withholding info since the get go -- FOI are legally culpable for stonewalling! * The primary issue concerning and justifying the WA police and medicolegal establishment's violent 1997/8 mistreatment of me was my so called "drug induced" "delusional" belief in an impending global disaster -- ie. the H2H H-this N-that viral Pandemic... Due to my questioning character, I happened to be one of those who awakened early to the pandemic threat of H5N1. Midst the traumatic time of 9/11 2001, I was usually found perched on a library computer doing my research thang. Due to my early 30s agebracket, OUT sexuality and smalltown existence, I was not taken seriously in both a personal and work related context. Indeed, I was viewed as a "simpleton" for expressing both an "outside the box" scientific explanation of and sociopolitical overview of H5N1. Most people in my life (intimate and non) made the conscious choice to perceive me as "nuts" for believing a disaster was just round the corner... Due to reading many articles on genetic modification, my new transgenic DNA worldview perceived the genesis linkage between H5N1, speedily recombining itself to cross-infect many lifeforms, vis a vis the mid 1990s onward release of genetically modified crops. But for the defective CaMV viral promoter technology contained within GM products, H5N1 would probably not exist as a viable threat in the early 21st Century. In retrospect, my lengthy role within H5N1 education and prevention -- viewed with scepticism and scorn by Australian government authorities -- places me in an ironic and bizarre public position: even though many people may die, I happily flip the "bird" (finger) at a homophobic Oz society and publicly say, "Frack you tossers, my instincts were correct all along!" This has been my adult existence for a decade, since 1997/8. A period during which I suspected all was not what it appeared to be when tv viewing an item on human H5 infection and "cytokine storm" death in Hong Kong. Yes, back in 1997, I had an instinct-based belief a vast number of people were shortly going to die in a rather painful manner... It's as darned bizarre and melodramatic as that, actually. During this time, my then lover, family, friends, the government, homophobic WA police, psychiatrists, etc, did not understand my world view primarily cos they had not digested the same global media sources... It was the beginning of a paradigmatic seachange and my early views were officially considered "chemical induced delusions" -- how odd, I had no psychoactives (eg. THC) in my blood when an Australian psychiatrist misdiagnosed me as suffering drug induced delerium. The senior medical officer at Graylands Selby-Lemnos, Dr B. Zawadzki, took a disturbing interest in my gay psychosexuality and acted in an sexual manner toward my physical person whilst a drugged (Risperidone 1mg twice/day) involuntary patient. On 6th of Jan 98, my worst nightmares became a reality -- I was literally locked within a nazi-homophobic environment, drugged against my will and sexually abused by a senior staff member. With only me and her present in her office, Dr Zawadzki lifted my shirt and suggestively touched my torso under the pretext of a "medical examination." But, let's now return to the lead-up events: Back in 1997, I'd just completed a university degree and was "chilling" in a twenty-somethang dude manner -- like many before me (eg. Bill Clinton), I imbibed cannabis/THC a wee bit -- did I actually inhale!?! But, I was also freelance writing for a local queer newspaper and various other publications (see "WA's Surveillance Devices Bill" By Elena Jeffreys and John Curran (prior name before change to Singleton) @ http://www.greenleft.org.au/back/1998/343/343p8d.htm ) Basically, some people are "media junkies" and appear to be "out of their time" in "world view paradigm" vis a vis the rest of the human herd. For better or worse, I'm very much of this personality type and, in the late 90s, freaked out some homophobic and Hyacinth-Bucket-Conservative members of the West Australian community with my visceral perceptions. Because of these views and writing, I was branded and dehumanized by the WA medico-legal establishment in a relative manner comparable to victim-survivors of the nazi doctors... The problem I have is the legacy of these events -- the West Australian government has been ignoring me and refusing to accept liability for the actions of its employees. I've been rather patient these past years, waiting for the authorities to Freedom Of Information (FOI) release the documentation I need in order to attain medico-legal closure. All through this Nazi-esque medico-legal farce, never once have I compromised the integrity and community responsibility I enact as an unpaid health worker. (((Re: FOI ACCESS APPLICATION REF #01/862))) In this application of a few years ago, the WA FOI Information Commissioner made a decision on 20th Feb 2002 to censor all documents containing names of WA police officers prior to sending me photocopies -- why!?! Why have police officers names been blanked out on the few relevant docs sent thus far? Why are these folk afraid to have their names publicized re: corruption and queer bashing? * Re: Drugs -- Inventory And Movement Document (stamped D67179) * On 31/12/97 "approx 22gms leaf material believed to be cannabis" was given the tag/bag number B82374. * On 12/03/98 this evidence was given a new tag/bag number B91282. * On 29/04/98 this renumbered evidence was "opened for re-analysis" and given a new tag/bag number BB049208. * On 13/07/98 order for destruction of this evidence BB049208 was given.

Howdy Crof, It's great to have your keen nose back online. The big bad boogie of transgenic pathogen (eg. H5N1) education and prevention is much easier with your choice postings. It's a bit of worry, this Perth kiddie "influenza A + bacterial infection" combo death thang!?! You may very well be aware that a fourth kid has died of a "mystery illness"! It's Friday in Oz-trailing and no confirming news as to what is the score on this fourth death. So, if you find or get sent any info, please keep us all posted -- the big worry, for me personally, is the fact my cousin's wife will be soon be giving birth to a baby girl in an unusual medical scenario where West Aussie kids are...

The WA Health Department announced a fourth child had died from a similar cause of illness as three who died two weeks ago. The three children who died earlier this month all had a combination of influenza A and a bacterial infection. Paul Van Buynder, director of communicable diseases at the West Australian health department, said the latest child did not have the flu but had contracted pneumococcal bacteria. "There isn't a single bacterial infection that links the four cases," Dr Van Buynder told reporters. "At this point we are unable to say what the cause of death has been in these four children." Dr Van Buynder said it was "very uncommon" for children to die with an infectious disease so quickly, but he stressed Perth did not have a epidemic on its hands. "We are desperately trying to get to the bottom of what's causing these illnesses," he said.
