Nurse Ready to Break Forced Quarantine at Maine Home

 

Kaci Hickox, the nurse from Maine who was ordered by her state's governor to abide by a policy that health care workers arriving from West Africa remain under a 21-day home quarantine, will take legal action if officials do not lift the restrictions by Thursday morning. Maine Governor Paul LePage is preparing a court order to force Hickox to stay quarantined. Outside her home in Fort Kent, Maine, Wednesday evening, Hickox told reporters that she was trying to arrive at an amicable settlement with the state attorney general’s office but is frustrated that she is not allowed to leave her property.

 

Obama Calls Health Care Workers Heroes

 

Surrounded by health care workers who treated Ebola patients in West Africa, President Obama lauded them as "heroes" during White House ceremony Wednesday. The president said by their work in the Ebola "hot zone" to contain the spread of the epidemic, the doctors and nurses were protecting Americans at home. Obama praised the medical professionals for serving "a cause greater than themselves." 

 

White House Refutes Official's Criticism of Netanyahu

 

The Obama administration went into damage control Wednesday following an article in the Atlantic in which a senior official allegedly disparaged the fortitude of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Author Jeffery Goldberg quotes the official as calling Netanyahu "chicken s**t" because he has done nothing to advance the peace process with the Palestinians while continuing to make threats to attack Iran but never following through. At the White House, press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters, "Those comments do not reflect the United States position and they do not reflect the personal views of the president of the United States." 

 

Ebola Case Rate in Liberia May Be Slowing

 

The rate of new Ebola infections is slowing in Liberia even as cases in West Africa close in on 14,000, according to the latest report from the World Health Organization. Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are where most of the confirmed, probable or suspected cases have occurred with the death toll from the virus now topping 4,900 since the outbreak was first detected last March. As for the situation in Liberia, the WHO's Bruce Aylward said he was cautiously optimistic that perhaps things are improving there.

 

Christie Tangles with Heckler During Superstorm Sandy Event

 

New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie used some of his famous bluster to silence a heckler Wednesday during an event to update residents about the progress made to rebuild shore communities on the second anniversary of Superstorm Sandy. Christie became agitated when James Keady, a former Asbury Park city councilman, repeatedly interrupted his remarks while holding a sign that read, “Get Sandy Families Back in Their Home -- Finish the Job.” When he couldn’t stand the heckling any longer, Christie told his Democratic nemesis, “I’m glad you had your day to show off, but we’re the ones who are here to actually do the work. So turn around, get your 15 minutes of fame and then maybe take your jacket off, roll up your sleeves and maybe do something for the people of this state.”

New Warning About Frequent Restaurant Dining

 

 

If you can afford to do it, why not dine out as much as possible?

Well, researchers at Queens College, City University of New York are advising against it and not purely for financial reasons.

According to lead author Ashima Kant, when people dine frequently at restaurants, they run a higher risk of putting on the pounds and boosting bad cholesterol as compared to those who mainly enjoy their meals at home. 

In an analysis of 8,300 adults in the U.S. between 2005 and 2010, people who ate at least six meals in restaurants on a weekly basis had a higher body mass index, lower levels of good cholesterol and a deficiency in Vitamins C and E.

Who are the worst offenders? Generally, college-educated men in their 20s and 30s who earn good salaries.

As for why restaurant fare isn’t a great choice on a daily basis, the obvious answers are too much salt, too much fat, large portions and not enough fruits and vegetables offered.


Coffee and Beer May Affect Some Couples' Ability to Conceive

 

 

Coffee and beer are a couple of America’s favorite beverages but one may possibly be better than the other when it comes to couples who are having problems conceiving.

According to a surprising study out of the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, coffee consumption by men seems to impair infertility treatments. However, a man’s beer drinking might increase the odds of pregnancy, although researchers are not suggesting they imbibe in great quantities of suds.

In a study of 105 men involved in vitro fertilization treatments over seven years, couples in which men drank at least 24 ounces of coffee daily were half as likely to conceive than those in which males drank less than an eight-ounce cup daily.

Meanwhile, couples enrolled in IVF had more luck with live births when the man had the equivalent of two 12-ounce beers daily compared to other couples with limited alcohol consumption among men.

Why do beer and coffee have these effects? Scientists admit they’re stumped and with a small sample size, they’re not about to make any recommendations until further studies are conducted.
