Read This - A New Flew?

I just found this and thought is was very interesting if accurate. I'm gonna go update my Swine Flu charts just in case.

Reported Cases in Ukraine Double in Two Days

WHO Targets Hemorrhagic H1N1 Cases in Lviv Ukraine

Click on the link to my charts to the right and look up the swine flu section.


  1. Moron here...if correct, this could be very serious..this is the first time I've seen anyone mention hemorrhagic symptoms associated with H1n1...This was exactly the fear when the first Mexican cases showed up...If this turns out to be true and from the rate of infection mentioned in the story, this won't take long to be serious...Its worth buying some cheap OTM puts, especially given the VIX crashing...might be a few days before main streem picks it up...

  2. If it is real it is serious and I would not put it past the WHO to keep it under wraps as long as possible. Airlines get shut down etc. Kenny thinks VIX is about to spike and I disagree. We'll have to see. I lose more than win going against Kenny. I'm gonna keep an eye on this one. Go to my chartbook and look at the swine flu section for some names that may pop.

  3. thanks, I'll take a look...No doubt the WHO will try to remain reserved as long as possible and try to contain it...They will be very careful to avoid using the word hemmorrhagic for sure...Better go buy some masks, a swine shot won't do squat if this turns out to be a new strain.

  4. Swine shot more dangerous than the actual thing with mercury and squaline in it IMO. Or how about the mist with live virus in it! Goody goody! This will be interesting to keep an eye on.

  5. Dr. Vinay Goyal is an MBBS,DRM,DNB (Intensivist and Thyroid specialist) having clinical experience of over 20 years. He has worked in institutions like Hinduja Hospital , Bombay Hospital , Saifee Hospital , Tata Memorial etc. Presently, he is heading our Nuclear Medicine Department and Thyroid clinic at Riddhivinayak Cardiac and Critical Centre, Malad (W).

    The following message given by him, I feel makes a lot of sense and is important for all to know

    The only portals of entry are the nostrils and mouth/throat. In a global epidemic of this nature, it's almost impossible to avoid coming into contact with H1N1 in spite of all precautions. Contact with H1N1 is not so much of a problem as proliferation is.

    While you are still healthy and not showing any symptoms of H1N1 infection, in order to prevent proliferation, aggravation of symptoms and development of secondary infections, some very simple steps, not fully highlighted in most official communications, can be practiced (instead of focusing on how to stock N95 or Tamiflu):

    1. Frequent hand-washing (well highlighted in all official communications).

    2. "Hands-off-the-face" approach. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face (unless you want to eat, bathe or slap).

    3. *Gargle twice a day with warm salt water (use Listerine if you don't trust salt). *H1N1 takes 2-3 days after initial infection in the throat/ nasal cavity to proliferate and show characteristic symptoms. Simple gargling prevents proliferation. In a way, gargling with salt water has the same effect on a healthy individual that Tamiflu has on an infected one. Don't underestimate this simple, inexpensive and powerful preventative method.

    4. Similar to 3 above, *clean your nostrils at least once every day with warm salt water. *Not everybody may be good at Jala Neti or Sutra Neti (very good Yoga asanas to clean nasal cavities), but *blowing the nose hard once a day and swabbing both nostrils with cotton buds dipped in warm salt water is very effective in bringing down viral population.*

    5. *Boost your natural immunity with foods that are rich in Vitamin C (Amla and other citrus fruits). *If you have to supplement with Vitamin C tablets, make sure that it also has Zinc to boost absorption.

    6. *Drink as much of warm liquids (tea, coffee, etc) as you can. *Drinking warm liquids has the same effect as gargling, but in the reverse direction. They wash off proliferating viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive, proliferate or do any harm.
    Neti pots and sinus rinse kits are available at the drug store and relatively inexpensive….under $15.

  6. Thanks Bob. Very useful information. I'd recommend avoiding people with snotty noses that are sneezing prolifically as well LOL.

  7. "fall Of The republic"

    State Tax
    Fed Tax

    Global Tax (disguised as climat/carbon treaty).

    Just what we need, a new tax.
    I guess Obama is going to keep his promise of
    no tax increase for the middle class.
    Instead going to give us many many new taxes.

    One world currency, one world government, not too far off.

    Freedoms being taken away.
    But I think we will still have the freedom to
    decide either to be branded on the forehead or hand.


  8. LOL Uszly, I would laugh if it was funny, but it is not. People don't get it. Sad. This global carbon tax bill is gonna really screw us. Just a new way for us to distribute wealth we don't have anymore. Guess they were too late to the party. Sooo Sorry.


Keep it civil and respectful to others.
