Horror Disease of Uganda

Horror Disease of Uganda

History hasn't been kind to Uganda. The small, land-locked country in East Africa was artificially created as a colony by the British in the late 19th century with colonial exploitation basically making a big mess of things there for the last 100 years. Uganda has weathered wars, famines, genocides, dictators, and epidemic diseases. The epidemic diseases in Uganda have been particularly cruel. Most recently, a horrific disease called Tungiasis has afflicted more than 20,000 Ugandans in the past 2 months. The disease causes the body's extremities to rot away from the inside. What causes the horrific rotting disease? You might not want to know; it actually gets worse.

New CPR Guidelines Released by the American Heart Association

New CPR Guidelines Released by the American Heart Association

The American Heart Association recommends that the three steps of CPR be rearranged.


A-B-C-- airway, breathing, and compression, has been replaced with C-A-B-- compression, airway, and breathing.


The first step is now doing chest compressions instead of first establishing the airway and then doing mouth to mouth. The new guidelines apply to adults, children, and infants, excluding newborns.


"By starting with chest compressions, that's easy to remember, and for many victims that alone will be lifesaving," says Michael R. Sayre, MD, chair of the emergency cardiovascular care committee for the American Heart Association and co-author of the executive summary of the 2010 AHA guidelines for CPR and emergency cardiovascular care.

A new study released by the Journal of Applied Microbiology cautions against sharing touch screens with others during flu season.


"If you're sharing the device, then you're sharing your influenza with someone else who touches it," Timothy Julian, the Stanford doctoral student who co-authored the study, told The Sacramento Bee.


Everyone knows that if you touch things with germs on them, you have a greater risk at ingesting those germs. New technology is quickly becoming touch based, and many people use these touch based technologies, all day long. Electronic airport kiosks, movie ticket kiosks, ATM machines, and train ticket vendors are all touch screen and all public. Few of us think about washing our hands after buying a bus ticket or using the ATM, but considering all the touching going on, it might not be a bad idea.
