Over 400 Ukrainian troops cross into Russia for refuge

More than 400 Ukrainian troops have been allowed to cross into Russia after requesting sanctuary. It’s the largest, but not the first, case of desertion into Russia by Ukrainian soldiers involved in Kiev’s military crackdown in the east of the country. According to the Rostov Region’s border guard spokesman Vasily Malaev, a total of 438 soldiers, including 164 Ukrainian border guards, have been allowed into Russia on Sunday night. One of the Ukrainians was seriously injured on his arrival in Russia. He was taken to the hospital for surgery, the officials added. The other Ukrainian soldiers have been housed in a tent camp deployed near the checkpoint via which they entered Russian territory. The Russian border guards are providing them with food and bedding. More

New Jersey Police Ticket Christian for Posting Scripture Sign on His Vehicle


ENGLEWOOD, N.J. –
 A New Jersey police officer ticketed a Christian who was sharing the gospel outside of a local abortion facility this weekend after the officer took issue with a sign displayed on his truck that cited two Scriptures. Luis Zapata says that he has posted Scripture and other messages on his vehicle for nearly two years as a means to witness to the public about Christ. “Years ago, the Lord put it on my heart to write a verse and put it on the truck,” he told Christian News Network. “I’m concerned about the salvation of souls … It concerns me that in this nation, there are millions and millions of persons thinking they are going to Heaven and the reality is they are not.” Zapata, a Columbian-born Christian who lives just outside the town of Englewood, drives his vehicle through a number of cities throughout the area and has never had an issue with the display. Every week, he and other Christians preach the gospel at Metropolitan Medical Associates, one of the largest abortion facilities in the state, to help saves lives and reach abortion-minded mothers. More

Number of chikungunya cases spike in New York and New Jersey as virus spreads rapidly

The number of cases of the painful, mosquito-borne virus chikungunya spiked in New York and New Jersey in the last week of July, raising new fears for the potential that the disease will gain a permanent foothold along the U.S. East Coast. “The arrival of chikungunya virus, first in the tropical Americas and now in the United States, underscores the risks posed by this and other exotic pathogens,” said Roger Nasci, PhD, head of the Arboviral Diseases Branch for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “This emphasizes the importance of CDC’s health security initiatives designed to maintain effective surveillance networks, diagnostic laboratories and mosquito control programs both in the United States and around the world.” More

What Will It Mean If The Potential Ebola Victim In New York City Actually Has The Virus?

On Monday, we learned that a “possible Ebola patient” was being treated at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. We are being told that this individual recently returned from a country in Africa where there have been confirmed cases of Ebola. So that would narrow it down to Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia and Nigeria. The patient is being described as a male “with high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms”. The hospital says that “necessary steps are being taken to ensure the safety of all patients, visitors and staff”. But could you imagine the panic that is going to be created if there actually is a confirmed case of Ebola in the heart of New York City? There is nothing in the post-World War II era that would even be comparable. Certainly 9/11 created fear for a short period of time, but a full-blown Ebola outbreak would create a panic that could potentially last for months or even years. MORE

 

Here’s a Map of Where the CDC Would Quarantine Possible Ebola Cases

As the largest-ever outbreak of Ebola rages on in a cluster of West African nations, the planned evacuation of at least one infected American to the United States raises the question: Are we equipped to deal with the disease here? The answer, in short, is yes—very well. A widespread Ebola outbreak here is “not in the cards,” the CDC director recently told reporters. That’s partially because the United States has excellent infection control procedures and facilities. Among those facilities is a network of quarantine stations, where the CDC can legally detain anyone who may have been exposed to cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever, SARS, new strains of flu, or—relevantly—viral hemorrhagic fevers like Ebola. More

Mount Sinai Patient in N.Y Tested For Ebola Virus

BREAKING NEWS: Mount Sinai Hospital is performing tests on a patient who had recently traveled to a West African country where Ebola has been reported, the hospital says. A male patient with high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms came to the hospital’s emergency room on Monday morning, officials said. The hospital says the patient has been placed in strict isolation and is undergoing medical screenings to determine the cause of his symptoms. “All necessary steps are being taken to ensure the safety of all patients, visitors and staff. We will continue to work closely with federal, state and city health officials to address and monitor this case, keep the community informed and provide the best quality care to all of our patients,” the hospital wrote in a statement. Mt. Sinai is following what the Center for Disease Control recommended last week when they sent a Health Alert to doctors and hospitals. More

 

‘The Devil Made Me Do It,’ Claims Missionary Who Admits Raping Children

An Oklahoma teen charged with raping and sexually assaulting numerous children while volunteering at a missionary children’s home in Kenya says a demon made him do it, prosecutors said on Friday. Matthew Durham, 19, of Edmond faced a judge on Friday regarding accusations he raped up to 10 boys and girls aged 6 to 9 at the Upendo Children’s Home in the capital, Nairobi, which helps care for neglected and disabled children. According to court documents, Durham confessed to the sexual assaults when confronted by church members. Prosecutors said Durham told a friend he had a demon named “Luke” inside him, and that Durham said “Luke” told him to sexually abuse the children. Defense attorneys contend that Upendo missionary members coerced Durham’s confession by withholding food and his passport until he conceded his guilt. The defense also alleges that members of the children’s home urged him to say he had a demon inside him during his confession. More

Pastor Jean Marcel KesvereAt least 25 people were killed in Cameroon, among them a church leader, as militants carried out two spectacular attacks in the far north of Cameroon at the end of July. In one attack in the town of Kolofata, the wife of the Deputy Prime Minister and her maid were kidnapped, raising fears that the area has become a new battle-field for Nigeria’s Islamist group Boko Haram. In the second attack, Pastor Jean Marcel Kesvere of the Lutheran Brethren Church of Cameroon, was kidnapped. His family found out later he’d been killed. Recently, regional governments—from Niger, Chad, Cameroon, along with Nigeria—pledged to set up a joint-force to fight the Boko Haram crisis that has spread across all their borders. But for now the radical sect, responsible for the kidnapping of more 200 school girls in Chibok, continues its deadly killing spree. More

Thousands stranded, at least 1 killed by Southern California mudslides

About 2,500 people were stranded early Monday after thunderstorms caused mountain mudslides in Southern California, while one person was found dead in a flooded creek, authorities said. Mud, rocks and debris several feet deep blocked roads in the communities of Oak Glen and Forest Falls, and it could be several hours before crews cleared the way through, San Bernardino County Fire spokesman Ryan Beckers said. All residents in the two towns were accounted for and no injuries were reported, he said. To the west, a body was found Sunday in a car that was swept into the rain-swollen water course in Mount Baldy and overturned, fire spokesman Chris Prater said. Coroner’s officials identified the victim on Monday as Joo Hwan Lee, 48, of El Segundo. About 1,500 residents of Oak Glen, and another 1,000 residents of Forest Falls were unable to get out because of thick debris flows caused by flash floods. The stranded include 500 children and adults who had arrived at a Forest Falls campground Sunday morning. More

 

US CITIES’ CRACKDOWN ON HOMELESS PEOPLE IS ‘CLOSE TO ETHNIC CLEANSING’

His face riven with lines forged by years on the streets, Gil reaches into the top pocket of his shirt and fishes out a wedge of grimy papers. These are the precious records of his life, documents the rest of us keep in a filing cabinet at home. Eventually he finds what he is looking for, a yellow slip that looks like a parking ticket. That, as it happens, is about right, although Gil is not a man of many possessions and certainly not a car. He does, however, have size 13 shoes. In his hands is a police citation written a few weeks ago when an officer found him sitting on the kerb with his feet touching the road. “Feet in Roadway Disturbing Traffic,” it reads. This is Fort Lauderdale, in Broward County, Florida, between Miami and Palm Beach, and Gil’s ticket – he gives his first name only – could be Exhibit A in what civil rights activists say is a creeping and insidious campaign by this and many other American cities to drive the homeless out of their midst by a combination of police harassment and increasingly draconian new ordinances that make being homeless a criminal offence. More

Army to force out 550 majors; some to get news while in Afghanistan

About 550 Army majors, including some serving in Afghanistan, will soon be told they have to leave the service by next spring as part of a budget-driven downsizing of the service. Gen. John Campbell, the vice chief of the Army, acknowledged Friday that telling troops in a war zone that they’re out of a job is a difficult task. But he said some of the soldiers could join the National Guard or the Army Reserve. The decision to cut Army majors comes on the heels of a move to slash nearly 1,200 captains from the ranks. Army leaders were criticized at the time for giving 48 of them the bad news while they were deployed to Afghanistan. The Army declined to say how many majors will be notified while they are at the battlefront. More

American Ebola patient received ‘experimental serum’

An American doctor who contracted Ebola in west Africa appears to be recovering, thanks in part to a new and experimental treatment, according to a report from The Los Angeles Times. Dr. Kenneth Brantly is currently being treated at an Atlanta hospital, but his organization, Samaritan’s Purse, says the crucial treatment began with an experimental serum that Brantly received in Liberia. Brantly also received a blood transfusion from a recovered Ebola patient who he had treated earlier, which may have aided in his ongoing recovery. There’s currently no specific treatment for the Ebola virus, which has a mortality rate between 50 and 90 percent, but basic medical care can make an enormous difference in managing its symptoms. As the current outbreak spreads to more than 700 cases in West Africa, the search for specific treatments has grown increasingly urgent. This weekend, Nigeria reported its second confirmed case of the disease, after earlier cases in Liberia, Equitorial Guinea and Sierra Leone. The current Ebola outbreak is the worst in the history of the disease. The Verge

 

California’s Drought May Trigger Earthquakes

California’s drought has reached epic proportions. Nearly 60 percent of the state is in exceptional drought—the most severe category—and farmers are depleting groundwater reserves at record rates as wildfires break out north and south. Now there’s something else to worry about: earthquakes. Drought-triggered earthquakes. If you want to sink a well in California and pump out as much water as you can, there historically hasn’t been a lot to stop you: Unlike other Western states, California has never regulated groundwater withdrawals. As a result, over the last 150 years Californians have pumped nearly 160 cubic kilometers of groundwater from the Central Valley, the state’s agricultural heartland. That’s enough water to fill Lake Powell, Lake Mead, and all the Colorado River reservoirs downstream—twice, with some left over. (For more on how California may run out of groundwater in 60 years, see the video above for an update to the documentary Last Call at the Oasis, produced by Participant Media, TakePart’s parent company.) More

Japan to launch military space force: report

Japan is planning to launch a military space force by 2019 that would initially be tasked with protecting satellites from dangerous debris orbiting the Earth, a report said. The move is aimed at strengthening Japan-US cooperation in space, and comes after the countries pledged to boost joint work on monitoring space debris, Kyodo news agency said Sunday. Japan would provide the US military with information obtained by the force as part of the joint bid to strengthen ties in space, the so-called “fourth battlefield”, Kyodo said, citing unnamed sources. Japan’s defence ministry is looking at creating the new force using personnel from the Air Self-Defence Force, the country’s air force, it added. The unit would acquire radar and telescope facilities, jointly with the science ministry and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, to run its observatory operations, Kyodo said. Thousands of pieces of debris — including old satellites as well as pieces of rockets and other space equipment — are orbiting the Earth and threaten to collide with functioning communications and reconnaissance satellites. Yahoo News

Nigeria Confirms Doctor As 2nd Ebola Case

Nigerian authorities on Monday confirmed a second case of Ebola in Africa’s most populous country, an alarming setback as officials across the region battle to stop the spread of a disease that has killed more than 700 people. Also Monday, health authorities in Liberia ordered that all those who die from Ebola be cremated after communities opposed having the bodies buried nearby. Over the weekend, health authorities in the West African country encountered resistance while trying to bury 22 bodies in Johnsonville, outside the capital Monrovia. Military police helped restore order. In Nigeria, Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said test samples are pending for three other people who had shown symptoms of Ebola, and that authorities are trying to trace and quarantine others. The confirmed second case in Nigeria is a doctor who had helped treat Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian-American man who died July 25 days after arriving in Nigeria from Liberia. More

Dozens From Ebola-Struck Countries Caught Sneaking Into USA

A leaked intelligence analysis from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveals the exact numbers of illegal immigrants entering and attempting to enter the U.S. from more than 75 different countries. The report was obtained by a trusted source within the CBP agency who leaked the document and spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity. The report is labeled as “Unclassified//For Official Use Only” and indicates that the data should be handled as “Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU).” The numbers provided are in graphics and are broken down into “OFO” and “OBP.” The Customs and Border Protection agency is divided into the Office of Field Operations (OFO) and the Office of Border Patrol (OBP). The OFO numbers reflect anyone either turning themselves in at official U.S. points of entry, or anyone caught while being smuggled at the points of entry. The OBP numbers reflect anyone being caught or turning themselves in to Border Patrol agents between the points of entry, or anyone caught at interior checkpoints by Border Patrol agents. The “OFO Inadmissible” designation to any individual from a nation other than Mexico or Canada means that U.S. authorities took the individuals into custody. Whether they were deported or given a Notice to Appear is unknown. It is important to note these numbers do not include data from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The unavailable ICE data are in addition to these numbers. More

Pedestrian killed in excavator terror attack in Jerusalem

Palestinian driver shot to death by police; 6 victims lightly wounded

A tractor driven by a Palestinian man rammed into a bus in central Jerusalem early Monday afternoon, close to the “seam” between the western and eastern parts of the city.
A male pedestrian, later named as Avraham Walz, 29, was run over by the tractor as it headed toward the bus and was killed. The tractor driver, identified as East Jerusalem resident Muhammed Naif El-Ja’abis, 23, turned the bus over onto its side during the attack, making several efforts to do so before he succeeded. continue
