Police in Samoa have pressed charges against a nurse after two babies died within minutes of receiving a vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella. The two one-year-old infants were given the vaccine last month at Safotu District Hospital on the island of Savaii. They both died shortly after being administered the inoculation. The Samoan attorney-general has confirmed that one of the nurses involved in the procedure has been charged and will appear in court next week. In the aftermath of the incident, the Samoan government suspended its nationwide vaccine program and all vials of the vaccine were seized, Newshub reports. The neighboring Cook Islands also suspended its own MMR program because the country uses the same supplier as Samoa. That suspension has since been lifted.
Google bosses were scrambling to contain leaks and internal anger on Wednesday after the company’s confidential plan to launch a censored version of its search engine in China was revealed by The Intercept.
Just a few hundred of Google’s massive 88,000-strong workforce had been briefed on the project prior to the revelations, which triggered a wave of disquiet that spread through the internet giant’s offices across the world.
Company managers responded by swiftly trying to shut down employees’ access to any documents that contained information about the China censorship project, according to Google insiders who witnessed the backlash.
“Everyone’s access to documents got turned off, and is being turned on [on a] document-by-document basis,” said one source. “There’s been total radio silence from leadership, which is making a lot of people upset and scared. … Our internal meme site and Google Plus are full of talk, and people are a.n.g.r.y.”
On a message board forum for Google employees, one staff member posted a link to The Intercept’s story alongside a note saying that they and two other members of their team had been asked to work on the Chinese censorship project, code-named Dragonfly….
The entire state of New South Wales the breadbasket of Australia is now impacted by drought killing crops and diminishing livestock feed
The entire state of NSW is now impacted by drought, official figures show.
A drier-than-expected June and July have left many farmers with failing crops, a short supply of water and diminishing livestock feed.
According to the NSW Department of Primary Industries, 61% of NSW is either in drought or intense drought, while nearly 39% is drought affected.
“This is tough,” the NSW primary industries minister, Niall Blair, said in a statement on Wednesday. ‘There isn’t a person in the state that isn’t hoping to see some rain for our farmers and regional communities.”
Less than 10mm of rain was recorded in the western, north-west, and central areas of NSW over the past month and drier-than-normal conditions are forecast for the next three months across the majority of the state.
“Producers are now faced with some very difficult decisions on whether to graze sown crops or rely on potential rainfall in the next two months in order to increase yield production,” Blair said. Previously a small area of the state’s north coast was yet to be declared drought affected.
On Tuesday, the deputy prime minister, Michael McCormack, urged farmers to put their hands up for drought relief payments even if they were reluctant to do so.
Almost 20,000 people are yet to apply for the federal government’s $190m drought relief package, which has been attacked as “too little, too late” by critics….
Astrophysicist Predicts End of Human Civilization Is Approaching: ‘This World Is Not Our Home’
A Christian astrophysicist has warned believers that the end of human civilization is fast approaching. Hugh Ross believes that we will shortly enter the next ice age, the fulfillment of Jesus Christ’s Great Commission and, ultimately, the end of the world.
Greek Orthodox Bishop Says Deadly Wildfires Are ‘Wrath of God’ Over Country’s Atheist Leader
In the third installment of his series “The End of Civilization As We Know It?” Ross claims that humans may be able to delay the ice age for a period of time, but they will not be able to prevent it from happening. Through his careful analysis of ice age cycles, Ross concludes that the next ice age should’ve started 5,000 years ago, but that the emission of atmospheric carbon has delayed its arrival. Carbon is emitted largely through the domestication of cattle, deforestation and the use of fossil fuels. He believes that this human activity has caused Earth to warm, and the effects of the next ice age to be lessened….
Super gonorrhoea outbreak worsens as new strains emerge
Two completely drug-resistant versions of the venereal disease have been found and identified – with fears rampant unprotected sex could trigger an epidemic. Doctors have been unable to treat patients with antibiotic ceftriaxone and azithromycin.
And sufferers have been left with gonorrhea – also known as the clap – infection that causes extreme pain during urination. Australia’s federal government has issued a report warning of the risk of the “continuing threat of antimicrobial resistance by dangerous bacteria”. Officials added another five strains of gonorrhea have been found which have “high-level resistance” to treatments. Professor John Turnidge, the senior medical adviser with the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, said people need to take more care during sex….
