Obama’s 2016 combating antibiotic resistance strategy


The White House predicts that, with their budget 2016, IF this money comes through, the funds could help cut resistant infection in significant, measurable ways. They predict reductions of:
– 60 percent in very highly resistant carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE)
– 50 percent in drug-resistant staph (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile (“C. diff”)
– 35 percent in multi-drug resistant hospital infections
– 25 percent in resistant Salmonella and invasive pneumococcal disease.
Those are bold goals, but sources tell me that antibiotic resistance may be the one issue both parties are willing to collaborate on.

Positive signs of a government knowing since Ebola, where risk prevention lies.
Let’s watch the outcome.

Zuckerberg supports Jesuischarlie by censoring Muhammed?

Only two weeks after Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg made a show of support for freedom of speech following a terror attack by radical Muslims in France, Facebook began censoring images of Muhammad in Turkey–including the very Charlie Hebdo images Zuckerberg claimed to support.
On January 9, Zuckerberg posted a message under his own name, taking credit for standing up to demands that Facebook censor images of Muhammad.
“Facebook has always been a place where people across the world share their views and ideas,” Zuckerberg wrote. “We follow the laws in each country, but we never let one country or group of people dictate what people can share across the world.”
He ended his post with “#JeSuisCharlie,” a show of support for the murdered members of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo who lost their lives in an attack by radical Islamists on January 7. [via]

FB and Instagram really down by mistakes?


Cybersecurity company Norse monitors Internet traffic and provides a real-time map of cyber attacks, including potential DDoS attacks, on a service called IP Viking. On Monday night, the map showed a number of attacks all targeted at the U.S. The sites that went down are all U.S.-based companies. Lizard Squad, the hacker group which reportedly took down Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network over the holidays, took credit for the DDoS via Twitter. Update 2:10pm CT, Jan 27: Facebook issued a statement saying the breach was not the result of a third-party attack. However, the breadth of what happened is still not fully understood because so many sites were affected simultaneously.
This was not the result of a third party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems. We moved quickly to fix the problem, and both services are back to 100% for everyone.[via]

It was not an attack..according to Facebook. Mmmm, really
