Northwestern University to Offer ‘Gender Open’ Restrooms on Campus


Northwestern University, a public institution in Illinois, has announced that it will offer ‘gender open’ restrooms to its students beginning this fall in order to be more accommodating to ‘transgender’ students. An announcement on the university’s website notes that the restrooms will be in the Norris University Center near the student organization offices and the LGBT Resource Center. Two existing male-female segregated bathrooms will have their placards changed to reflect that they may be used by all genders. “We are trying to be responsive to the needs of all of our students and to be inclusive,” campus spokesman Bob Rowley told The College Fix. “This is becoming a common occurrence on campuses across the U.S.” Devin Moss, director of the LGBT Resource Center, told The Daily Northwestern that his office surveyed student groups and staff on the third floor to obtain feedback about the idea of creating gender open restrooms. More

ISIS Makes Up To $3 Million a Day Selling Oil


For two weeks, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and forces loyal to Bashar al-Assad have been battling for control of the Shaar gas field, one of Syria’s largest, near the landmark city of Palmyra. On July 19, it was reported that the Sunni militant group had killed 270 regime fighters, taking control of the field in what was reportedly one of the conflict’s deadliest 48-hour periods to date. As ISIS steams further into Syria, analysts say a significant portion of its financial resources come from the crude oil it sells on the black market; accordingly, oil fields have become prime targets in the fight. So do gas fields like Shaar, where disruption of lines lead to electricity shortages and power cuts in regime-controlled areas as far as Damascus. We asked Robin Mills, a Dubai-based energy analyst and author of “The Myth of the Oil Crisis,” and Theodore Karasik, research director at Dubai-based think tank INEGMA, to weigh in on why oil fields have become so important to ISIS and how turning them into battlefields could disrupt energy production – as well as the jihadi group’s cash flow. More

WHO: Travel restrictions won’t stop Ebola spread


The spread of Ebola from the West African epicenter cannot be stopped by restricting air travel or by closing borders, the World Health Organization in Geneva confirmed to WND Friday.  “The problem with air travel is that a person is not infectious unless they are actually showing symptoms,” Gregory Hartl, WHO spokesman in Geneva, told WND in a telephone interview. “So if you were infected a week ago, but you don’t have a fever or any other symptoms yet, you can fly and you’re not infectious; you’re not a danger to anyone,” he said. Hartl confirmed that a person with the Ebola virus might appear healthy while traveling but will manifest symptoms after reaching the destination country. “There’s no way to detect beforehand that the person is going to get sick. That’s one reason border closures don’t work,” he said. “How are you going to stop a person who’s apparently well from traveling? You can’t.” More

Bible left in North Korean sailor’s club triggered U.S. tourist’s arrest


American tourist Jeffrey Fowle was arrested by North Korean authorities for leaving a bible under a bin in the toilet at a club for foreign sailors, a source familiar with Fowle’s case told Reuters. During his ten day trip to North Korea, Fowle’s fellow travelers described the middle-aged street repairs worker from Miamisburg, Ohio as a warm, amiable, quiet man. On May 4, towards the end of an evening spent eating and drinking in Chongjin, a large industrial city on North Korea’s east coast, Fowle’s action led to him being thrown in jail, where he is awaiting trial in one of the world’s most inhospitable countries. More

Why There May Never Be A Cure for Ebola


Ebola has no cure, no medical treatment—and in this deadly West Africa outbreak, doctors can only isolate victims and find those they had come into contact with to track the virus’ spread. Misinformation is running rampant in the countries that have been affected. Scores of newspapers urged residents of Liberia to “Burn all bodies.” A pastor who claimed to have a cure for Ebola prompted Nigeria to decree that anyone spreading similar scams could face jail time. Street protests broke out in Kenema, Sierra Leone, when angry crowds attempted to burn down the city’s Ebola treatment center in an effort to eradicate the virus. To make it clear: There is no cure for Ebola.More

Pentagon Official: Obama’s Policy Is A Direct Danger To The United States


Joseph Miller is the pen name for a ranking Department of Defense official with a background in U.S. special operations and combat experience in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has worked in strategic planning. The report is in, and the review of the president’s foreign policy is clear: If there is not an immediate course-reversal, the United States is in serious danger. In 2013, the United States Institute for Peace, “a congressionally-created, independent, nonpartisan institution whose mission is to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflicts around the world,” was asked to assist the National Defense Panel with reviewing the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR). The National Defense Panel is a congressional-mandated bipartisan commission that’s co-chairs were appointed by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. More

WHO warns of ‘catastrophic’ consequences of Ebola outbreak: disease is spreading faster than our ability to control it.


AFRICA
 – The director-general of the World Health Organization warned Friday that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is spreading quickly and the consequences could be “catastrophic” if greater efforts to control the outbreak aren’t put into place now. “This outbreak is moving faster than our efforts to control it,” Director-General Margaret Chan told the presidents of Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Ivory Coast at a gathering in Conakry, the capital of Guinea. “If the situation continues to deteriorate, the consequences can be catastrophic in terms of lost lives but also severe socioeconomic disruption and a high risk of spread to other countries,” she said. The world’s largest Ebola outbreak is in its fifth month and escalating in a poor corner of West Africa. Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia have together reported 1,323 cases, of whom 729 people have died. Neighboring Ivory Coast is at risk if the outbreak isn’t tamed. Also Friday, French authorities recommended for a second day that nationals suspend all travel to West African countries where cases of Ebola have been identified in a bid to prevent spread of the deadly disease to France. The WHO’s Dr. Chan praised the leaders gathered for their concern and political commitment—demonstrated this week with new measures such as deploying soldiers to quarantine stricken neighborhoods in Sierra Leone.More

U.S. government seeking to test Ebola vaccine on humans


The U.S. government will begin testing on people an experimental Ebola vaccine as early as September, after seeing positive results from tests on primates, according to media reports on Thursday. The National Institutes of Health’s infectious disease unit is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to put the vaccine into trial as quickly as possible, according to CNN and USA Today. The director of that unit could not be reached for comment. Reuters

Netanyahu Tells White House: ‘Never Second Guess Me Again’


Following the quick collapse of the cease-fire in Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the White House not to force a truce with Palestinian militants on Israel. Sources familiar with conversations between Netanyahu and senior U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, say the Israeli leader advised the Obama administration “not to ever second guess me again” on the matter. The officials also said Netanyahu said he should be “trusted” on the issue and about the unwillingness of Hamas to enter into and follow through on cease-fire talks. The Obama administration on Friday condemned “outrageous” violations of an internationally brokered Gaza cease-fire by Palestinian militants and called the apparent abduction of an Israeli soldier a “barbaric” action. More

CDC Sets Up Quarantine Station At LAX As Ebola Virus Continues To Spread Overseas


The Centers for Disease Control have established a quarantine station at LAX to prevent the spread of the deadly Ebola virus from passengers coming off international flights. The CDC is warning Americans to avoid the Ebola-ravaged nations of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea where more than 700 people have died. Tom Bradley International Terminal now has a CDC quarantine station where health officials will determine whether a sick person getting off an international flight can enter the country. “We’re fairly comfortable that if a patient were identified here in the U.S., that the normal kinds of barrier nursing precautions that would be in place would prevent spread, even before the person would be confirmed to be a case of Ebola,” Dr. Stephan Monroe said. More
