Italian Premier Silivio Berlusconi and media tycoon lost half a litre of blood after being hit in the face with a plaster souvenir of a replica of Milan’s famously jagged cathedral, the Duomo during an attack on him at a rally in Milan on 13th Dec (Sunday night). The Italy’s billionaire leader suffered a fractured nose and two broken teeth which took place as he mingled with the crowd in the city. He was cut under one eye and his top lip was split in two places by an attacker with a long history of mental illness.
The attack occurred at a time when Mr. Berlusconi, one of Italy’s wealthiest men, is embroiled in a sex scandal, a divorce case with his wife and public protests demanding his resignation.

Sir, as a concerned Barbadian citizen and tax payer, I hope that you will permit me enough space in your publication to discuss Al Barrack and the $60 million owed to him by our Government.
I recall hearing about Al Barrack and the monies owed to him in the media a few years ago, as well as in recent times. According to a an online article on the Nation newspapers’ website, Prime Minister David Thompson said: “He will definitely be paid” and “There has never been an occasion when the Government of Barbados has had an obligation that it has not eventually paid.” Read more of this post

Pushing it to the limit during exercise increases ones chance of breaking down with the flu, and with Swine Flu among us this year is it worth the risk?
Individuals who take part in running races have higher flu and injury rates than their counterparts who trained for the race but did not run it according to current research. In general healthy adults have less to fear of swine flu than children, the elderly, or individuals suffering from other illness, but an overworked athlete is an easy target for the flu.

I was privileged to come across a video that confirmed info that pertains to facts on the H1N1 vaccine inserts.
Privileged because I have read online in more than one place, statements associating with the inserts and now to see a doctor corroborate such, in living colour, one can only draw the obvious conclusion. This is information provided by the manufacturers detailing the pro and cons of the particular product for the particular risk group(s). Read more of this post

A court in Malaysia has temporarily dropped the trial of a prominent blogger accused of sedition, because they do not know his whereabouts.
Raja Petra Kamaruddin, who runs the Malaysia Today website, is believed to have gone into hiding, possibly outside of Malaysia.
The trial which began in October last year stems from an article he wrote last year that allegedly implied the involvement of Malaysia’s prime minister in the high-profile 2006 murder of a Mongolian woman. Two policemen were sentenced to death in April for the killing, although the trial never established any motive. Read more of this post

Barbadians from all walks of life were able to hear Chief Medical Officer Dr. Joy St. John on CBC TV Tuesday night confirming 73 cases of the H1N1 which represent ‘only a fraction of the real figure’ and the overwhelming pressure being place on the polyclinics and the hospital due to the upsurge.
As I sat listening to the lady, waiting for some concrete measures, the Ministry of Health would be undertaking to dealt with the ongoing flu-like symptoms which in some if not all cases would translate into the H1N1 influenza virus, the most the Chief could recommend was increase treatment for high-risk groups. Extending it to children under 5 years and persons with chronic illness like diabetes, asthma and sickle cell. Nothing about isolating persons in a separate facility! Read more of this post

Came across a very curious article on Trinidad & Tobago Express news site yesterday. According to the online piece, Necia Holtzman, a health educator at a private firm specializing in health and infection control sounded the alarm to her countrymen about the devastating impact of the coming swine flu virus this time around.
In Miss Holtzman words, at the recently held International Swine Flu Conference (in which she attended) held in Washington D.C (in August before schools reopened) experts there “have said that the third wave of swine flu should be taken very seriously because they is going to be an extremely severe and virulent attack which could result in a lot of deaths and could follow the pattern of the 1918 Spanish Flu.” Read more of this post
