The Variola virus comes in two different forms in which both have different effects. The first type of the variola virus and the most harmful/ deadliest is the variola major. The second is the variola minor which is not as deadly as the first type but can cause and inflict harm to the body in multiple ways (Gale,2013). Since variola is a type of virus, it conducts the functions of most viruses which is to spread in mass amounts and attach to a host cell. This results in the the organism getting infected with the virus (Gale,2013) .
• Theft from a research laboratory, hospital, or public health service laboratory, where agents are cultivated for diagnostic purposes. • Isolation and culturing of a desired agent from natural sources. • Obtaining biological agents from a rogue state, a disgruntled government scientist, or a state sponsor. Radiological Terrorism. It is quite possible for the terrorist to disperse radiological material in an effort to contaminate a target population or a distinct geographic area.The material could be spread by radiological dispersal devices (RDD) like dirty bombs, etc.
The UN peacekeepers had contracted the disease from an earlier mission in Nepal, and the epidemic was caused when a sanitation system at their base leaked contaminated fecal matter into a Haitian river. Due to the devastation of the earthquake, and Haiti’s poor plumbing facilities, the disease quickly spread, infecting more than half a million people. The epidemic caused reconstruction efforts in Haiti to halt and resulted in distrust toward the UN, who refused to compensate the victims. 7) Children in Need The Children in Need charity, which is run by the BBC, funded the propaganda activities of the suicide bombers who killed 52 Londoners in the 2005 terror attacks. Between 1999 and 2002, the charity donated $40,000 to an Islamic school and bookshop, which were used as fronts to recruit and train homegrown terrorists.
“She States that chemicals come from our “laboratories in an endless stream; almost five hundred annually find their way into actual use in the United states alone”(Carson) Firstly, Carson uses horrific examples to grab the attention of her audience. She tells her readers about chemicals, such as pesticides, that are destructive and how they are used on all kinds of foods as well as how they are used to kill bugs. Carson explains in her essay how the war on bugs may never be won. She states “…insects, in a triumphant vindication of Darwin’s principle of the survival of the fittest, have evolved super races immune to the particular insecticides used, hence a deadlier one
Human to human transmission is extremely rare and reported only with cutaneous anthrax. When the animal dies due to anthrax, the animal carcasses become infectious, and when the animal decomposes, the spores can again mix with the soil and the transmission cycle continues. The bacterium often penetrates the body via wounds in the skin and may also infect humans as aerosol or ingestion. The ability of sporulation and resistance of the spores to harsh environmental conditions like heat and humidity, disinfectants and UV radiation makes anthrax the most important biological warfare agent. It is reported that the spores can survive up to 40 years in water or soil.
In order for vaccines to work appropriately, they have to operate in a very convoluted way to make sure they live up to their standards. 1. Vaccines are developed by using the bacteria’s specimen that has been either killed or damaged which are dissolved in a solution. When the vaccine is injected into the body, the specimen revives that person’s immune system. After being injected, the immune system will now fight against the microbe by forming antibodies.
Varicella, or colloquially Chicken Pox, is a very contagious and deadly disease. It causes a variety of symptoms and can lead to rapid excruciating death. There exists a vaccine for Varicella, it allows people to prevent this disease and prevent their deaths. Vaccines take over the duty of natural selection and replace it effectively. (Pearson) Medicine is able to cure diseases through a single shot or treatment.
The klan caught word of this and decided to organize in attempts of capturing Michael. After 10 P.M, the Mount Zion Congregation meeting had finished. Ten people, seven men and three women, were faced with thirty KKK men armed with shotguns and rifles. Expecting Michael to return from a business meeting, the clan realized they were misinformed and that Michael was actually in Oxford, Ohio attending a three day CORE seminar. Frustrated, they beat the ten people and with ten gallons of diesel fuel, they burned the church of Mount Zion as a warning.
Exposure from ionizing radiation could produce short or long term effects creating biological damage to living cells. In human, the effects could be from the molecules, cells, tissues, organs, and as well as the whole body. The radiation can affects the cells direct and indirectly. If radiation interacts with the atoms of the DNA molecule, it is referred to as a direct effect. Ability of the cell to reproduce and survive might be affected as well.
Nixon proposedpassed many laws during his presidential terms but the major ones are the Selective Service Reform bill to Congress and in November 19 Congress completed action on the bill (HR 14001). This bill gave the President the authority to institute a draft lottery system aimed at inducting 19-year-olds first. Although, the legislation needed to amend a section of the 1967 draft law (PL 90-40) which prohibited
(2007).Who guidelines on tularemia. Reservoirs in the environment. Retrieved from http://www.cdc.gov/tularemia/resources/whotularemiamanual.pdf Biological agents such as Anthrax, Plague and Tularemia may be found growing wild in nature. Bulk samples of disease agent’s bacteria could be collected and grown in a sophisticated terrorist laboratory to be manufactured by chemists with the knowledgeable backgrounds necessary to effectively weaponize the samples in aerosol form to use for an attack on the people inhabiting South Baltimore, including the areas just outside S. Baltimore, MD, VA, and DC to cause them harm and to create widespread fear. Smallpox was declared eradicated in the 1980s; however the smallpox outbreak may have been possible if a malicious individual or group was able to successfully infiltrate one of the super-secure laboratories either in Atlanta, GA or Russia where smallpox virus is kept to use to in a terrorist attack to cause a public health crisis (WHO,n.d).
That boat took ten people to a strange island called Indian Island. This story is about the sad events of this ten people’s deaths and who killed this ten people. When the ten people got to the island they all went into the mansion. They sat at the dining table they got some food. During the first diner they noticed that there were 10 china figures in the center of the table.
There have been multiple incidents at SeaWorld when killer whales have attacked people. The most popular killer whale attack is the death of Dawn Brancheau by Tilikum, the largest male orca captive at SeaWorld Orlando. This was just one out of three deaths that Tilikum was involved in. He also played a part in the deaths of trainer, Keltie Lee Byrne, and park visitor Daniel Dukes. An autopsy completed by Dr. Joshua Stephany, a medical examiner, determined the injuries Brancheau had sustained after Tilikum had pulled her into the pool.
The article describes the events that happened at Memorial Medical Center during and immediately following Hurricane Katrine in Uptown New Orleans. Once the power was knocked out and running water, the hospital tempter rose to about 100 degrees and resources became limited. As resources became limited Anna Pou was force to result to triage which she was not trained for, therefore her method of triage was questioned. Another doctor, Cook, who was the administrator of Memorial ; his methods of patient care were also questioned. In order to evacuate the hospital in the time frame given to him by the state police, Cook gave Pou instructions on how kill four ICU patients who were obese.
