liberia_today "Liberians Won’t Be Used As Guinea Pigs’ For Ebola Trial Drugs Not Approved." →The Liberia Medicines & Health Products Regulatory Authority (LMHRA), which is the Government of Liberia’s arm that has the statutory mandate to review and approve all clinical trials involving medicines and health products in the country has strongly warned pharmaceutical companies and others, who are trying to bring in “Ebola drugs/medicines,” for trial purposes, that Liberians won’t be used as Guinea pigs. "Eboflip is manufactured by Eurofarmacos Group Europe, a Spanish biotechnology company, which is said to be indicated for the treatment of the Ebola Virus Disease, has no information on its pre-clinical safety data,” LMHRA said.
Pre-clinical safety data, according to LMHRA, is when a drug has been pre-tested on a lower class animal like monkey and its data recorded before it can be tested on humans.
“We would like to use this medium to inform the Eurofarmacos that, there are procedures and guidelines for clinical trials that must be followed by any institution wishing to carry out any of such activities.” LMHRA Managing Director Pharmacist David Sumo said:

A health practitioner, who asked that his name not be mentioned, criticized the health regulatory body for playing double standard. He stated that LMHRA did not sound the same alarm when the famous ZMAPP was allegedly brought into the country from the US without pre-clinical safety data, but was allowed to be tested on patients.

paneetsingh 100 years ago today, justice was served. Canadian Immigration Inspector William Charles Hopkinson was gunned down by a man by the name of Mewa Singh, for orchestrating the suppression of immigrants in British Columbia. Hopkinson was responsible for being instrumental in sending the Guru Nanak Jahaaz (more popularly known as the Komagata Maru ship) back to India, as well as fueling violence within the immigrant community of BC through espionage and extrajudicial use of force. On October 21st, 1914, Mewa Singh walked into the Vancouver Provinical Courthouse (now Vancouver Art Gallery) and opened fire on Hopkinson using two revolvers, killing him on the spot. Mewa Singh immediately turned himself in, accepted responsibility for the crimes, and was hanged on January 11th, 1915 for his actions. The anniversary of his hanging is still commemorated on a yearly basis by the Sikh community, who regard Mewa Singh as a hero for serving justice where the government fell short. 3h

end_atheist_discrimination Seven and a half years: that's the prison sentence given to atheists Jabeur Mejri and Ghazi Beji in Tunisia in March 2012, for posting cartoons of Muhammad on Facebook. Beji got lucky, and got the hell out of the country: he is still being sought as a fugitive by Tunisian authorities. Mejri wasn't so lucky. He is currently in prison -- serving a seven and half year sentence. Think, for a moment, about how long seven and a half years is. In seven and a half years, a kindergarten child would almost be in junior high. In seven and a half years, an elm tree would grow from a sapling to over twice your height. Now, think about spending seven and a half years in prison. For posting cartoons about religion that the government didn't like. 10h

liberia_today Less Than 400 Ebola Cases Remain in Liberia - Official

Measures put into place by the government and its partners, coupled with the onset of the country's Dry Season, have led to a drop in the number of new Ebola cases nationwide, according to Dorbor Jallah, the deputy manager of the Incident Management System, a body that manages the Liberian government's response to the disease.

airwrecka_88 I was just informed by my state of FLORIDA that my legal union to my WIFE is not recognized for my name change, although the FEDERAL government recognizes my legal name change, a $400 fee, 12 week process, court date, back round check, and fingerprints (mind you I work for the LOCAL government) is required to take my wife's name. STOP this bigotry discrimination and get out of the Stone Age! I was so upset I was in tears. #nohate and vote for #charliechrist for governor so we can be given equal rights and representation that the HETEROSEXUALS are given. #standup #fight #equalrights #bigots #religiousexcuse for #discrimination #unfair #ihateyou #equalflorida #getittogether #sorrybroimgay 13h
  •   shelbysweat My best friend went through this when he got married to his partner. I believe he changed it on his social security card and his passport so that when he changed it in Georgia they couldn't refuse him. I'll ask him what he did and DM you when he gets back from his vacation. 12h
  •   airwrecka_88 Thanks Shelby! Cher and I were discussing the passport situation as I will be applying for one in the next few weeks, and having to use a SS card that shows my name change but a FL drivers license with a different one. @shelbysweat 12h
  •   deeduhbyah Seriously? After having to travel ALL the way to DC because it isn't "approved of" here, and then having to shove out all this extra nonsense? 12h
  •   airwrecka_88 Yes! @deeduhbyah this is the first encounter of discrimination so far that has directly effected me and it's infuriating! 12h
  •   deeduhbyah Jeeeeeeeeze. Pisses me off for you. Love will prevail! 11h

1. African-Americans comprise 13% of the U.S. population and 14% of the monthly drug users, but 37% of the people arrested for drug-related offenses in America.
2. Studies show that police are more likely to pull over and frisk blacks or Latinos than whites. In New York City, 80% of the stops made were blacks and Latinos, and 85% of those people were frisked, compared to a mere 8% of the white people stopped.
3. After being arrested, African-Americans are 33% more likely than whites to be detained while facing a felony trial in New York.
4. In 2010, the U.S. Sentencing Commission reported that African Americans receive 10% longer sentences than whites through the federal system for the same crimes.
5. In 2009 African-Americans are 21% more likely than whites to receive mandatory minimum sentences and 20% more likely to be sentenced to prison than white drug defendants.
6. In a 2009 report, 2/3 of the criminals receiving life sentences were non-whites. In New York, it is 83%.
7. African Americans make up 57% of the people in state prisons for drug offenses.
8. The U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics concluded that an African American male born in 2001 had a 32% chance of going to jail in his lifetime, while a Latino male has a 17% chance, and a white male only 6%.
9. In 2012, 51% of Americans expressed anti-black sentiments in a poll; a 3% increase from 2008.
10. A survey in 2011 revealed that 52% of non-Hispanic whites expressed anti-Hispanic attitudes.
11. Reports show that nearly 50% of Americans under 18 are minorities. The trend projects a reversal in the population where by 2030, the majority of people under 18 will be of color, and by 2042 nonwhites will be the majority of the U.S. population.
