This is making the news today due to the lawsuit, the death happened during the hottest part of the summer, the end of June, 2017. I lived in the Davis Mountains as a child and know the difficulties of doing anything there: oxygen is scarce! This was an unnecessary death, one has to be ‘hardened’ by heat and low oxygen before strenuous hiking/climbing in hot mountains. I spent most of my childhood hiking, running, climbing mountains in the Southwest. And Texas is very humid compared to say, Arizona! Humidity makes heatstroke even more likely!

Francois Hollande suggests sanctions on Russia should be lifted | Daily Mail Online: Germany is eager to stop the charade, too. The demonization of Putin and then replacing him with an oligarch who would dismember and sell off Russia, has failed miserably. Putin is now coping with a global sudden oil futures ‘glut’. That is, the futures bidders thought Russia would be knocked out of world markets last fall, bid up future prices which now are nosediving, driving many speculators into bankruptcy.
It appears that the US and Saudi Arabia, that is, the country that supports torture of prisoners and the country that beheads people for not obeying the strictest form of Muslim beliefs and stones women to death for infractions like say, driving a car, are attacking Russia which is a liberal, modern country that has rights for women and no religious persecution. The scheme is to flood the world markets with oil and then cause Putin to be unpopular and then see the Russian flounder and fail and fall apart like when they were led by the very unpopular communist party.
The roaring incompetence of the CDC and other agencies is glaringly obvious, they have no clue how to deal with ebola: Second Ebola-stricken nurse, 29, arrives in Atlanta as it’s revealed she was given permission by CDC to fly on a commercial flight the day before she was diagnosed – despite her expressing concern because the CDC GAVE HER OK TO FLY: Second Ebola-infected nurse was cleared to board plane after she called agency for permission — her fever did not reach 100.4 degree mark, a slightly lower fever was supposedly OK?
Above is a picture from the front page of the Washington Post making fun of ebola as a campaign issue.
World stock markets are falling rapidly as investors figure out the true cost of the ebola epidemic and the panic is spreading pretty fast now with 2 nurses sick and hundreds of people exposed in mainly Texas and parts of Europe. Super Lame Duck, Obama CANCELS fundraising trips for emergency Ebola meeting at the White House as panic grows over the second home-grown US case although a meeting is useless if prejudices prevent action like quarantines.
Obeying orders from the White House, the CDC refused to take ebola seriously or order strict quarantines of anyone from the Ivory Coast and Liberian regions of Africa and was quite careless about ebola, minimizing the dangers from day one. And now we have a full blown epidemic which hits the nursing staff very, very, very hard. And even now, the CDC is dragging its feet on this issue, refusing to order immediate protocols to protect nurses and implementing this everywhere. This is Obama’s fault entirely and he remains silent about Africa and ebola instead of leading us, he is ignoring us and playing golf.
U.S. Secretary of health warns there WILL be more cases of Ebola on American soil: no surprise. The laggard response in the first place, now that the disease has come here via an African man who hoped to become yet another illegal alien, brought it in with no trouble at all. And since Duncan came, there is still virtually no controls at all and government yap about this is now proven to be all lies. They are doing as little as possible even as the public demands more and more protection especially an end to travel without quarantine from African countries where this plague rages.
