‘Explosive’ Haitian cholera outbreak kills 292, neighboring countries prepare

‘Explosive’ Haitian cholera outbreak kills 292, neighboring countries prepare

Thursday, October 28, 2010

The Haitian cholera outbreak has killed 292 people and infected over 4000, according to the Haitian government, although there are no new cases in the earthquake ravaged capital, Port-au-Prince. Neighboring countries, Dominican Republic and Jamaica have begun to implement measures to prevent the disease from spreading.

We are seeing a very rapid, very explosive outbreak with a very steep academic curve

The Deputy Director of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), Jon Andrus said, “health aides are in Haitian camps, educating people about proper food, water and waste treatment.” He also added that “the goal is to provide 24-hours-a-day medical care.”

The United Nations (UN) is calling the cholera outbreak “extremely serious” and it would be “irresponsible to plan for anything but a considerably wider outbreak.” A United Nations spokesperson also expressed concerned that the disease might become more widespread. Members of CARE medical teams have been working non-stop to treat the sick, but the number of people who need treatment still remain high.

We should take special care to ensure that our children do not play in dirty or stagnant water or swim in rivers, since cholera is essentially a water-borne disease

Although no cases of the disease have been reported in the Dominican Republic or Jamaica, the countries are beefing up their defenses. The Jamaican Prime Minister, Bruce Golding, said yesterday that the coast guard have increased their high seas patrols to prevent individuals infected with the disease from fleeing to the country. He also added that “we must all ensure that we practise good hygiene, wash our hands with soap regularly, drink only boiled water or bottled water.” Golding informed the cabinet that the Ministry of Health has begun to beef up operations in select towns which are still suffering from high waters due to the passage of Tropical Storm Nicole.

In the Dominican Republic health officials are present and are currently putting measures in place to prevent the disease from spreading over to the country. These include tight border control and bans on cooked or raw food from Haiti.

Methods Of Downloading Musica Gratis And Peliculas Gratis Online

Comments Off on Methods Of Downloading Musica Gratis And Peliculas Gratis Online

Submitted by: Pablo Garzia.

Getting Musica Gratis and Peliculas Gratis online is now easier more than ever. Although, the legality of some of these methods is questionable, they offer great entertainment to a wide population online.

Getting Musica Gratis and Peliculas Gratis online is now easier more than ever. Although, the legality of some of these methods is questionable, they offer great entertainment to a wide population online. There are various popular methods you can get Musica Gratis online.

The best and most common method of downloading Musica Gratis and Peliculas Gratis is by looking for a peer to peer file sharing program such as Utorrent. If you visit their main site, you will find options for DescargasDirectas. Peer to peer file sharing programs allow DescargasDirectas to occur between peers. If there is someone within that network with the file that you need, you can download and upload it straight from that person’s computer.

YouTube Preview Image

If you go to the option for DescargasDirectas and click ok, you are presented with an interface that displays information about the downloading process. Information about the seeds and peers is displayed on the interface. Seeds are basically the number of people who are downloading the file the same way you are and the peers are the people who have the files for downloading.

Apart from just Musica Gratis and Peliculas Gratis some of these sites also offer software DescargasDirectas and Programas Gratis. However, you need to ascertain the quality of any software before making any downloads. You should also have a good antivirus on your computer to prevent viruses that many downloads may cause. One way of pinpointing a virus is by checking the size of DescargasDirectas. If you are downloading a couple of Musica Gratis, there is no reason why the file size should be very large. If the file size too large it could possibly mean that you are downloading a virus. So always take note.

Another thing you can do to ascertain the safety of a torrent is by checking the comments that fall on that page where the Descargas Gratis are given. Always download software from the official website publishing software. In order to check the credentials of a site you wish to download anything, go to websites that offer instant feedback regarding the reliability of certain download sites. The browser will automatically warn you if the site you just visited has any form of corrupted files. Security warnings must never be ignored if you want to prevent committing to Descargas Directas that may end up damaging your computer.

As a point of caution, be very careful about those sites that automatically download software into your computer without your permission. Such programs may be malicious and threaten the security of your machine. In any case, do not always go for Descargas Gratis or Musica Gratis from a site that is not reputable. The only way to risk your computers security is by visiting these sites and agreeing to download their media without paying much concern. These are just some basic precautions you need to have in the back of your mind. However, be informed that there are hundreds of sites offering quality Musica Gratisand Peliculas Gratis that you can download. You only need to do a little research to locate them.

Woman returns home with Christmas turkey, a month after setting out

Woman returns home with Christmas turkey, a month after setting out

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

A Scottish woman who set out before Christmas to purchase a turkey finally made it home on Monday, after being cut off by snow for a month. Kay Ure left the Lighthouse Keeper’s cottage on Cape Wrath, at the very northwest tip of Great Britain, in December. She was heading to Inverness on a shopping trip.

However on her return journey heavy snow and ice prevented her husband, John, from travelling the last 11 miles to pick her up. She was forced to wait a month in a friend’s caravan, before the weather improved and the couple could finally be reunited.

They were separated not just for Christmas and New Year, but also for Mr Ure’s 58th birthday. With no fresh supplies, he was reduced to celebrating with a tin of baked beans. He also ran out of coal, and had to feed the couple’s six springer spaniels on emergency army rations.

“It’s the first time we’ve been separated”, said Mr Ure in December. “We’ve been snowed in here for three weeks before, so we are well used to it and it’s quite nice to get a bit of peace and quiet.”

Used Cars For Sale On Ebay}

Comments Off on Used Cars For Sale On Ebay}

Submitted by: Sydney Johnston

There are thousands of used cars for sale on eBay every single day. In fact, eBay Motors is the most profitable sales division on eBay and naturally there are many entrepreneurs who are interested in jumping into this market. For instance, eBay claims it sells an SUV every nine seconds and is the biggest online car dealer in America, exceeding the traditional car companies. In fact, there are 15 million cars sold over the Internet each year – and growing.

The recent rapid growth of the consignment business model has made the used car market even more enticing. Many sellers are able to sell cars they have never even seen and with no more risk than the cost of the auction listing. Some negotiators even persuade the car owner to pay for the ad, thereby risking no more than their time.

The biggest single issue for this business model is the trust of prospective buyers. After all, paying thousands or tens of thousands of dollars for a car sight unseen is an awesome leap of faith. Even buying for a plane ticket to go see a car before paying causes buyers to be uncomfortable.

The best way sellers can overcome this fear is to use an escrow service. The one chosen by eBay is Escrow.com, which handles eBay auctions in the US and Canada.

An escrow service acts as a neutral third party. In an exchange of merchandise, the buyer sends his money to Escrow.com and the seller ships the product to the buyer. The buyer usually has two days to inspect his purchase, and if he is happy, he notifies the excrow company who releases the money to the seller, minus its fee. If the buyer is dissatisfied, he returns the undamaged merchandise to the seller, and after the seller receives his merchandise back (in satisfactory condition), the escrow company returns the buyer’s money. Thus both sides in the transaction are protected. The buyer almost always pays the fees for this, although sometimes buyer and seller split the cost.

Escrow.com has created its “Vehicle Services Division” specifically for dealing with the used cars, trucks, SUVs and almost anything else with wheels and a motor. The buyer can have a 160 point inspection performed before agreeing to the purchase. This is an inexpensive service and certainly will save the buyer any headaches.

* The buyer pays a $125 fee that is non-refundable

* The seller is contacted and the inspection is carried out

* The buyer receives a report

* The buyer chooses to go ahead with the purchase – or not

Another choice for the buyer is to deposit his payment with Escrow.com and then take delivery of the vehicle. The seller ships the car after he knows the money is secure with the escrow company. The seller must provide tracking information, which is verified by Escrow.com.

The buyer has between one and 30 days to thoroughly inspect his new purchase (the period is negotiated between the two parties ahead of time). If this time expires and the escrow company has not heard from the buyer, it assumes he is happy and gives the purchase price to the seller.

The buyer may return his vehicle if he isn’t happy and sometimes buyers and sellers work out partial payment agreements, the buyer being satisfied with some parts of the transaction, but not with others. If a dispute arises, it is settled by the American Arbitration Association.

The fee for this service is:

* $0 – $7,500 = value of vehicle: $125

* $7,500.01 to $15,000: $170

* $15,000.01 to $30,000: $200

* $30,000.01 to $50,000: $275

* $50,000+ = 6% of the value

Once both parties have agreed, the title transfer process begins and Escrow.com will guarantee this too, for a fee of $95. Title transfers are handled by Centerpoint Diversified Services which works in all 50 states. The fee, naturally, doesn’t include any transfer costs – it is only insurance that the title will be expedited to the satisfaction of both parties.

Escrow.com also offers a service that will ship cars almost anywhere in the world and will gather an auto history report to inform sellers if their new chariot has been salvaged or stolen, suffered flood or hail damage, been in a fire or accident, has had an odometer rollback or has been used as a police car, a rental or a taxi.

Anyone considering offering used cars for sale on eBay would be well advised to thoroughly learn the services available through Escrow.com and offer those to prospective buyers. The trust factor will skyrocket and your chances of completing sales will dramatically increase.

Cadillac unveils Obama’s ‘Beast’, the 2009 Presidential State Car

Cadillac unveils Obama’s ‘Beast’, the 2009 Presidential State Car

Saturday, January 17, 2009

The US Secret Service has released the first photos Wednesday of the new presidential limousine that will transport Barack Obama down Pennsylvania Avenue next Tuesday as part of the 56th Presidential inaugural parade after he is sworn in at the Capitol. The First Limo – the 2009 Cadillac Presidential Limousine – will replace President Bush’s Cadillac DTS Presidential Limousine that rolled out in 2004.

Nicknamed “The Beast”, the hulking machine is a new model year 2009, modified limousine. According to General Motors, the new “2009 Cadillac Presidential Limousine” is the first not to carry a specific model name. The Obama Mobile was introduced on January 14 with noticeably different styling borrowed from the Cadillac Escalade and STS, while the suspension is most likely related to the Chevrolet Kodiak medium-duty truck.

HAVE YOUR SAY
Do you like the car? What would you like to see Obama driven around in?

Mr. David Caldwell of General Motors has revealed that the sleek black car would include a hand-crafted interior and “state of the art electronics.” The car’s high-tech security features include five-inch-thick (12.7-centimeter-thick) bombproof glass, tough-as-nails tires, and a sealed interior that’s invulnerable to chemical attack. The armoured limousine has been heavily modified to withstand potential attacks by weapons or bombs. The San Francisco Chronicle puts it in a proper perspective noting, “a half-inch of transparent armor is enough to stop a .44 Magnum round at point-blank range; at a thickness of 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches, the same material can withstand higher-velocity bullets fired from military assault rifles.”

According to spy photographer, Brenda Priddy, and General Motors, the limousine, which has the intricate, dual-textured grille, is also equipped with standard Goodyear Regional RHS truck tires in a 285/70R19.5 size, on 19.5-inch wheels. The rims have a run-flat device (manufactured by Hutchinson Industries). Xenon headlights from the Escalade are installed in the front, while the rear has some STS part. The doors are at least 20 centimeters (8 inches) thick. It carries the US flag on the front fenders and an embroidered Seal of the President of the United States is affixed to several panels in the back.

According to the US Secret Service, the vehicle would be a “valuable asset” in providing the President with the highest level of protection. “Although many of the vehicle’s security enhancements cannot be discussed, it is safe to say that this car’s security and coded communications systems make it the most technologically advanced protection vehicle in the world,” Nicholas Trotta, Assistant Director for the Office of Protective Operations said in a statement. The new limousine is the responsibility of White House Transportation Agency.

One of the specifications is that we don’t talk about the specifications.

The Presidential State Car is the official state car used by the President of the United States. It is informally known as “Cadillac One”. The current Presidential State Car is a 2005 hand-crafted, armored, and stretched DTS (DeVille Touring Sedan) built on a GM four-wheel drive platform. It was first used on the second inauguration parade of George W. Bush in 2005. But the version to be used by President Obama uses a GMC Topkick chassis, while maintaining the Cadillac exterior.

The President of the United States travels in one of two armoured Cadillac limousines based upon the normal sedan, the Cadillac DTS, with heavy customisation. Lincoln cars have also been used in the past, most notably by President John F Kennedy. The current limousines were custom-built by O’Gara, Hess and Eisenhart, founded in Fairfield, Ohio in 1942. It specializes in armouring limousines for presidents and heads of state.

President William McKinley was the first US president to ride in an automobile. However, it was President Theodore Roosevelt who rode on the first government-owned car, a white Stanley Steamer. Roosevelt’s successor, William Howard Taft, was the first president to use a presidential state car that was permanently stored in the White House garage.

Meanwhile, Obama’s 2005 Chrysler 300C Hemi was auctioned on eBay with a starting bid of $100,000 and a buy-it-now price of $1,000,000. It has less than 21,000 miles on it and is in like-new condition. He leased the car in 2004 and traded it for a Ford Escape Hybrid in 2007. The car was sold to Tim O’Boyle.

BMW announces 7.6% sales rise as US, China demand grows

BMW announces 7.6% sales rise as US, China demand grows

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Automobile manufacturing company BMW has announced that its sales increased by 7.6 per cent during the month of July. BMW reported that 129,094 units were sold during the month, consisting of the motor vehicle brands of BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

In a statement, Ian Robertson, member of the Board of Management of BMW, told of the company reporting “the most successful July sales ever”, claiming that it is “well on [the] way to achieving our recently announced target of over 1.6 million vehicles in 2011, the best ever sales result for the BMW group”.

Demand increases were notable in the United States and China in particular. 21,409 vehicles were delivered by BMW in the United States in July, an increase of 11.7 per cent from July 2010. In China, 18,858 units were sold in the month, meaning a sales rise of 36.1 per cent on the same month last year, with the increased popularity being attributed to “substantial gains in many markets”, BMW said. Sales increases were also reported in South Korea, Russia, India and Brazil. BMW did admit to a decrease of sales by 0.8% in Germany, the country in which the company is based.

[BMW has had] the most successful July sales ever

As a brand, BMW sales stood at 108,721 for July, 7.1% more than July 2010. In the year to date, BMW delivered 962,468 vehicles, a 17.9 per cent rise. According to Agence France-Presse (AFP), developing markets have become the cause of the substantial popularity of high quality automobile manufacturers. However, growth in this area may decline later on in the year, due to the difficulties facing the global economy, AFP claims.

Meanwhile, General Motors stated on Friday that its China sales decreased by 1.8 per cent in July this year compared to the same month in 2010. This was due to a lowered demand for commercial vehicles, AFP reported.
