This is the 'Red Letter Article' if I have ever seen one.

Roundup can cause certain problems and the fostering of certain fungi are one of them. here is a quote about Fusarium......
"But Fusarium’s wrath is not limited to plants. According to a report by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, toxins from Fusarium on various types of food crops have been associated with disease outbreaks throughout history. They’ve “been linked to the plague epidemics” of medieval Europe, “large-scale human toxicosis in Eastern Europe,” oesophageal cancer in southern Africa and parts of China, joint diseases in Asia and southern Africa, and a blood disorder in Russia. Fusarium toxins have also been shown to cause animal diseases and induce infertility."

All in all, genetically modified foods can come back to haunt us it appears.

In mixup, toddler served alcohol at Applebee's restaurant, police say
 
By Leigh Remizowski, CNN   April 11, 2011 1:55 p.m. EDT

(CNN) -- A 15-month-old was hospitalized after a behind-the-bar mix-up at a Michigan Applebee's restaurant that left the toddler sipping alcohol instead of apple juice.
 
Police were called to the Madison Heights restaurant on Friday evening after the parents of Dominic Wilson Jr. noticed their son acting strange during a family dinner.
 
"He was saying 'hi' and 'bye' to the walls," said Wilson's mother, Taylor Dill-Reese, 18. "He laid his head down like he was sleepy, then woke up
and got really hyper."

This is terrible, a lesson to be learned would be to taste test things for young children.

Susan, so true!! Who would even think they had to taste the apple juice brought to them at a resturant.
If one of the parents hadn't tasted it and the child drank the whole thing it could have killed him, according
to the article. Crazy!

I was done on here for the night but I went out in the front of the house for a minute when I saw a cat out there.
It was a big cat we hadn't seen for awhile. Dark charcoal gray with tuxedo markings on his chin.
He is quite well - fed so he is not a stray. Previously he had run up to my grown - up daughter and
acted like he would bite her. She had escorted him across the street because he was chasing our cats.
Tonight I just said, "Oh I remember you," wasn't being threatening was about to go in the house when he suddenly ran up to me aggressively.
This sort of freaked me out but my survival instinct was to display aggression right back.
I yelled at him to stop (he was already croached down facing square at me about to spring at me) I said, "well
I am going to hit you with something and you will not like that!"  He paused I grabbed a small rock I didn't hit him just threw it in the general direction and
he backed off...I yelled at him don't you threaten me in
my own yard... He was such an odd cat through he didn't fully run away he sort of half chased the rock I threw at him and folowed it as it rolled down the driveway he sort of sniffed at it. Not nearly as afraid as a normal cat  would be.
Occurred to me we better get all our cats vaccinated...
Never occurrred to me a neighborhood cat would run up to me like that. Before he was about to pounce he was growling at me.
My yelling deterred him... We need to find out whose cat that is. I googled it and saw the difference between defense aggressive posture and offensive aggressive posture. If the cat is facing straight at you staring right at you with his hind quarters up he is about to jump right at you. 

Anyway I found a Youtube video, Cecil County is in Maryland. - Yowbarb

Very wise to have our animals protected as you say. Thankfully all mine are and we are lucky to have a vet who makes house calls.

Susan, that's great aboutyour vet.  ;D
We just gave all our cats and our friend's dog the Revolution treatment, but need the shots this year. We may have a rolling vet van come out, soon.

This may seem like a wimpy threat to survival, but pollen - way too much of it,
is not good for some people.
Here is today's US map. About half the US in the red zone today, 9.7 to 12, on a scale of zero to twelve.

Human Bubonic Plague-New Mexico !!!
« Reply #26 on: May 19, 2011, 01:25:06 PM »
Just came across this:
Event date: 07.05.2011 03:28:19
Country: United States
State: State of New Mexico
Location:Santa Fe [-]

Our neighbors to the west have recorded the country's first human case of the dreaded bubonic plague. A 58-year-old man in the area of Santa Fe, New Mexico is recovering in hospital. "Whenever there is a human case of plague, the [New Mexico] Department of Health takes several steps to ensure the safety of the immediate family, neighbors, and health care providers," [New Mexico Department of Health Secretary Catherine]Torres said in a statement released by her office. "We inform neighbors door-to-door about plague found in the area and educate them on reducing their risk. It is not unusual to find bubonic plague in the West Texas rodent population, according to the Texas Health and Human Services Department. It’s spread to people by direct contact with infected animals such as prairie dogs, squirrels, cats, rats and mice. The odds of this happening are low, but take care anyway. Plague fully deserves its dread-disease status and can be fatal if not treated promptly. You can say that again. Plague epidemics agonized humans for centuries. The 14th Century outbreak in Europe was particularly notorious for wiping out up to half the population. Thankfully, modern medicine has brought the mortality rate of plague in the United States down to about 1 in 7. Between five and 15 Americans die from plague in an average year. You may recall in 2003, several vials containing bubonic plague went missing from Texas Tech University. They were discovered an hour later. Comedian Jon Stewart joked about it at the time on The Daily Show.


Event date: 17.05.2011 19:35:49
Country: United States
State: State of Arizona
Location:- [Doney Park (Flagstaff)]

County health officials have confirmed that fleas collected from a remote area of Doney Park have tested positive for plague. According to information from the county Health Services District, the area is northeast of Flagstaff near Townsend-Winona Road and Interstate 40. Fleas were being collected from prairie dog burrows that were being monitored due to a die off. Area residents have been notified, and the burrows have been treated. The area will be closely monitored to determine if more action is required, according to the county. The tests were conducted by Northern Arizona University researchers.

That's near my parents and family.   :o

You must be worried... will be you be forwarding the article to them?
They need to stay out of the outlying areas for awhile... the officials will probably get it under control...This happened in a couple US areas one was hills not far from L.A. many years ago. That was rodent-related.
Best your family there avoid being in crowds of people..
The thought just occurred to me with earth changes we could see more of this, especially if government officials are not on the ground working to control disease...

The Bubonic Plague never left the earth.  It has been around for centuries and a handful of cases are reported every year all over the world.  The American SW seems to be the only place in the US where it occurs on a regular basis.  I have long believed the Plague will once again become totally widespread like it was in Europe.  It's a matter of time.
