Experts show how public health is vulnerable to bioterrorism By Laurie Garrett, Newsday WASHINGTON _ Public health infrastructures in the United Slates and Canada, in their current states, would be devastated by a "highimpact" bioterrorism event in which an attacker uses modern germ technology, officials said last week. A telltale scenario, role-played by public health experts using smallpox as the biological agent involved and epidemic response plans similar to those in many American cities, left 15,000 people dead over two months and 80 million dead within a year, primarily because of insufficient global vaccine supplies. "We blew it," said Dr. Michael Ascher. a California health official, one of a number of experts asked to make decisions as the scenario played out. "It clearly got out of control. Whatever planning we had ... it didn't work. I think this is the harsh reality, what would happen." The scenario was explored last week in a daylong exercise attended by more th...

Fondly referred to by fans as "the skinny one" to distinguish him from his portly cohort Ebert, Siskel underwent surgery in May to remove a growth from his brain, but quickly returned to the syndicated "Siskel & Ebert at the Movies" TV show and to his four other jobs, as film critic for the Chicago Tribune, TV Guide "CBS This Morning" and WBBMTV in Chicago. Then, earlier this month, he announced he was taking time off to rest and further recuperate from the surgery.

Pete Wilson decides against run for presidency [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 February 1999
Pete Wilson decides against run for presidency By George Skelton, Los Angeles Times LOS ANGELES. Calif. _ Former California Gov. Pete Wilson has made his decision: Il would be senseless to run again for president. He can't raise enough money to compete. "I've reluctantly reached the conclusion that it's just not practical to pursue the nomination," he told the Los Angeles Times. That's a harsh reality Wilson had suspected for some time, but needed to reaffirm for himself after leaving the governor's office Jan. 4. It didn't take htm long. A few phone calls to loyal backers and two meetings with longtime strategists sufficed. "They thought it was very uphill," he says. So last Wednesday, he decided unequivocally to pull the plug. Later, he talked about his decision during an interview in the high-rise Los Angeles office that he subleases from Ronald Reagan. "I don't like to temporize," he says, explaining why he's announcing his decision now rather than waiting in hopes ol ca...

Remains of 'last wild Indian' discovered in Smithsonian warehouse By Beth Berselh, The Washington Post WASHINGTON _ Ishi, the "last wild Indian of North America," emerged from the Northern California wilderness in 1911, starved and nearly naked, his appearance so frightening that the townspeople initially had him jailed. He quickly became famous as people learned his story, but upon his death in 1916, a mystery once solved led to a new one. The question now: What happened to Ishi's remains? The answer to that 83-year-old riddle came last week when two academics said they had found the Yahi Indian's brain in a preservation tank in a Smithsonian Institution warehouse in Suitland, Md. The news delighted several Native American tribes who have struggled for years to locate all of Ishi's remains and bury them in his homeland. "It's not so often that vou get your mystery solved," said a gleeful Nancy Rockafellar, a historian at the University of California-San Francisco who is res...
Rev. Jackson to lead march protesting police shooting [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 February 1999
Rev. Jackson to lead march protesting police shooting LOS Angeles limes ____ The Rev. Jesse Jackson has announced that he and other activists would march Saturday in Riverside, Calif, to protest the shooting by police of a 19-year-old black woman. Tyisha Miller had a gun in her possession as she sat in her car with a flat tire at a gas station in December. Police officers who arrived to investigate later claimed that Miller reached for her weapon. Four officers fired a total of 24 shots, killing her instantly. Police critics allege that she posed no threat and that the officers acted aggressively because she was black. Jackson said he has asked to meet with U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno this week to request a federal investigation. "Our purpose is to keep the pressure on," Jackson said in teleconference interview from his Operation Push headquarters in Chicago: "The point is, that we are not going away."

Survivors of rape go public By Greg Krikorian, Los Angeles Times LOS ANGELES _ It does not get much tougher than this, letting the whole world know something so personal, so painful that you may not have shared it with friends, even family. But Saturday morning, two dozen rape and molestation survivors assembled on a sound stage in Hollywood for an event that they hope will strip away the notion that they, and millions of others nationwide, are just victims. "I am still learning to trust," Laurie Woolfe, 29, said, staring into a television camera and tugging at her sweater until its sleeves covered her hands like mittens. Ever since she was molested at 9 by a male baby sitter, the Los Angeles receptionist said she has trusted women more than men. But for the past two years, she said, she has had a good relationship with her boyfriend. And notwithstanding the awful memory of what happened, she said into the camera, she has moved on. "I am a survivor." The "Survivors" public s...

As the name suggests this site is an online auction to buy and sell all most anything you could possibly think of, Mark McGwire's 70th home run baseball was put up on EBay for bids, along with other major luxury items such as a car used in an early lames Bond movie. Now while items like this would be great if you have a few million extra dollars laying around, what can it do for the average Behrend student with Hale or no extra money? First, after you regester with EBay (a relatively painless process which should take you about five minutes or s6), you can sell items yourself. Everyone has some oid piece of junk laying around collecting dust that you just don't want to throw away because itcould be worth something someday. Well today is the day...
