Hepatitis A accidental exposure Red Robin

Hepatitis A might have been accidentally spread by a Red Robin restaurant employee in Springfield, MO. An estimated 5,000 customers may have been exposed to hepatitis A. An employee of Red Robin had been diagnosed with hepatitis A

Health department officials with Springfield-Green county were notified about the illness Tuesday. State and federal officials rushed to get enough vaccine to innoculate customers that had visited the restaurant from the 8th through the 16th of May.Hepatitis A can affect the liver. Health officials hope to get as many customers vaccinated within a 2 week period otherwise the hepatitis A vaccine may not be effective.

Springfiled is located in southwest Missouri and has a population around 160,000 people.

Hepatitis A can be spread by the feces of an infected person that comes in contact with food or drink served to a restaurant customer. Proper hand washing is the best way to prevent the spread of hepatitis a. Most cases of hepatitis A are not life threatening and symptoms clear up in a few weeks. Liver damage is rare with hepatitis A and there are instances of relapse. Yellowing of the eyes, nausea, vomiting, and fever are often the symptoms of an infection. A vaccine was introduced in the early 1990’s and cases of hepatitis a nationwide have dramatically decreased.

Another Red Robin employee in Stroudsburg, PA was diagnosed with hepatitis A in early May. Other incidents include a Teavana worker giving out tea samples in Indianapolis, MI. Shoppers might have been exposed on three occasions.

Drastic lifestyle changes like preparing more meals at home and raising our own food are good options to guard our health. If we rely on the FDA and CDC our lives may be in peril.

“Health officials worry that as many as 5,000 people could have been exposed to hepatitis A at a Red Robin restaurant here after a worker was diagnosed with the virus.

Starfleet logos spotted on Mars – Weather Network

 

In 1966 the first episode of Star Trek debuted on television. The public was introduced to Captain Kirk and the Starfleet command. The previous year 1965 Mariner IV spacecraft made its first flyby of Mars and found a planet with little or no signs of intelligent life. Mariner IV took pictures of numerous craters and detected a thin atmosphere. There was no signs of Starfleet command. NASA wasn’t satisfied and continued planning and building more spacecraft to explore Mars.

In 1969 the last episode of original Star Trek series aired and eventually returned to the air as reruns in 1969. By 1969 NASA had flown Mariner 6 and 7 by Mars and discovered the surface of Mars was much different than our Moon. They discovered that the martian polar caps were composed of carbon dioxide. Still no signs of intelligent life or Starfleet command.

Fast forwarding to 2014 and after numerous Star Trek movies, sequels, and Star Trek conventions we have finally found Starfleet command on Mars in the form of sand dunes or barchan dunes as they are called by geologists on earth. Barchan dunes form or earth when the wind blows primarily in one direction carving a crescent shape dune. These dunes were recently imaged by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and eerily resemble the Starfleet command logo. Perhaps Mars is winking at us and trying to tell us something.

In the meantime we’ll patiently wait on Hollywood to bring us the next Star Trek movie sequel.

“Monday, May 12, 2014, 1:48 PM – Back in December, NASA scientists discovered a series of Martian sand dunes that bear a strong resemblance to the Starfleet logo from the Star Trek franchise.”

Bi-directional OLED camera foreshadow 1984 telescreens

George Orwell’s book 1984 chronicled the experiences of Winston, an employee working for Big Brother’s government branch called the Ministry of Truth. Since Winston worked for the government he was a member of the bourgeois class and was privileged to live in a section of the city that was heavily subsidized by Big Brother and provided the basic life comforts along with safety and security. But there was a dark side to this lifestyle; every home, shop, corner cafe, barroom, street corner, and one’s living quarters were constantly overlooked by the insidious telescreens cameras. The telescreen cameras were both a blessing and a curse providing you with up to minute news and information that was heavily sanitized by Winston’s Ministry of Truth. The telescreens watched your every move instructing when to wake up and when to go to bed. The telescreen monitored your health and well being and made sure you had a regular exercise routine once a week upon rising from bed. If you fast forward 30 years we have a culture that is gradually and incrementally approaching this norm, especially the United States where almost every home has at least 2 computers with high speed cable access and not to mention almost all U.S. citizens carry one or more cell phones. The displays in consumer electronics aren’t quite literally watching us back, but that soon may change. “We first covered the Fraunhofer Institute’s bi-directional OLED display technology – which basically combines a display with a camera – all the way back in 2009”. “” via Fraunhofer bi-directional OLED prototype incoming: Display & Camera in one [Video] – SlashGear.
