The bug overtakes bacteria like E. coli and forces it to make an enzyme called NDM-1 (New Delhi Metallo-beta-lactamase) which is resistant to carbapenems, antibiotics generally used in emergencies and hard to treat infections caused by multi-resistant bacteria.

Experts fear that NDM-1 could jump to other strains of bacteria that are resistant to other antibiotics leading to dangerous infections that could rapidly spread.

“There have been a number of small clusters within the UK, but far and away the greater number of cases appear to be associated with travel and hospital treatment in the Indian subcontinent,” said Dr David Livermore from Cardiff University and the UK Health Protection Agency (HPA), “This type of resistance has become quite widespread there.”

The researcher were prompted to study NDM-1 cases referred to the HPA up to 2009 from hospitals scattered across the UK after the agency issued a National Resistance Alert after noting an increase in the number of cases in the UK. Researchers found that 17 of 37 patients studied had travelled to India or Pakistan within the last year, and 14 of them had been admitted to a hospital in these countries, some for cosmetic surgery.

For some patients the infection was mild, but others were seriously ill and some suffered blood poisoning. Although only 50 cases have been identified in the UK, Livermore believes the threat could be a global health problem as there are few suitable new antibiotics in development, and none to specifically treat NDM-1. Cases are currently treated with a combination of different antibiotics.

Normal infection control measures – disinfecting hospital equipment and washing hands with anti-bacterial soaps – can stop the spread.

The Conservatives are vowing to continue their fight against the gun registry after enough New Democrat MPs voted with the Liberals and Bloc Québécois to scrap a Conservative private member's bill aimed at killing the 15-year-old federal program.

Wednesday's vote was close, with 153 MPs voting in favour of a motion introduced by the House public safety committee to scrap Tory MP Candice Hoeppner's bill, compared with 151 voting against the motion, which would have kept the bill alive.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper said he would not let the result deter him.

"After 15 years, opposition to the long-gun registry is stronger in this country than it has ever been. With the vote tonight, its abolition is closer than it has ever been," Harper said.

"The people of the regions of this country are never going to accept being treated like criminals and we will continue our efforts until this registry is finally abolished."

Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff and Bloc Québécois Leader Gilles Duceppe had long made it clear that they intended to halt Bill C-391. The Conservatives supported the bill, so the registry's fate lay with the NDP, which allows its MPs to vote as they wish on private member's bills.

Six New Democrats voted with the Conservatives — Nathan Cullen of B.C., Niki Ashton and Jim Maloway of Manitoba, Dennis Bevington from the Northwest Territories and Bruce Hyer and John Rafferty from Northern Ontario.

Too bad you don't have any facts. More guns in legal hands = less violence. This is a proven fact in the US.

While we self-segregate in society, the jewish/traitor government still permits nigger animals in white society, and poor people are often left out in the cold and cannot afford to move away from negros/arabs.

Non-whites are a CANCER deliberately inflicted on white nations to harm us by the leftist government.

So guess you argument is a pile of bullshit, mongrels are just as bad as plain niggers.

Yes, because canada is not 35% non-white, unlike the USA.
Furthermore, canadian non-whites are very concentrated in cities, at least they used to be. But like usual the traitor government thinks we need "diversity" in towns across canada so now jews start up a slaughterhouse and import mexicans to work there. Or worthless unemployable nigger refugees can pile into your town.

Another joke about this gun registry, is that it's NON-WHITES causing all the gun problems, yet they think they need to regulate legal law abiding whites? That shows that their true goal is not at all about reducing crime, in fact liberals think that if the crime isn't reported in the news, it doesn't happen.
This gun registry is about paving the way towards communist dictatorship.

Your trolling is getting rusty, you really need to work on it.

WASHINGTON (AP) — More bad news for Democrats clinging to control of Congress: Independent voters are nearly as grumpy as Republicans about politics this year.

In an Associated Press-GfK Poll this month, 58 percent of independents and 60 percent of Republicans said politics is making them angry, compared with 31 percent of Democrats who said so. About 7 in 10 independents and Republicans were disgusted, compared with 4 in 10 Democrats, and independents and Republicans were likelier than Democrats to be disappointed, depressed and frustrated.

As for positive emotions, independents and Republicans were half as likely as Democrats to be inspired and less prone to be hopeful, excited and proud.

The figures are the latest cautionary note for Democrats, who face a Nov. 2 Election Day in which the sluggish economy and President Barack Obama's tepid popularity give Republicans a strong chance to capture control of the House and perhaps the Senate. They also help explain why independents, who can be pivotal in many congressional races, prefer their GOP candidate over the Democrat by 52 percent to 36 percent — which grows to 62 percent to 29 percent among independents considered likeliest to vote.

"There's a yellow light flashing" for Democrats in the numbers, said Ann Crigler, a political science professor at the University of Southern California who has studied the relationship between voter behavior and emotions.

Combined with other findings, independents' sullenness underscores how difficult it will be for Democratic candidates to win them over this election.

Only about a third of independents say the country is moving in the right direction and more than half say Obama is doing a poor job as president. Three-quarters disapprove of Congress, only about a third want Democrats to control Capitol Hill next year and more than 8 in 10 call the economy poor — similar to Republicans and exceeding the two-thirds of Democrats who say so.

"I'm not happy with Republicans," said Ed Perry, 66, an independent from Lowell, Ohio, who thinks government is too large and expressed anger in the poll. "But I'm really unh

Rebels in Nigeria's delta region said Thursday they have located three abducted French nationals and one more hostage, and are working with kidnappers to ensure their release.
"The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta can confirm that it has located the three abducted French nationals and another individual abducted in a separate incident on the same night," the group said in a statement.
"We are in negotiations with the abductors towards effecting a transfer of the men to the custody of MEND."
The rebel group said it will release more information on their health once the kidnappers free them. The statement by the group's spokesman Jomo Gbono did not give details on who the kidnappers were.
The three French nationals were kidnapped overnight in an attack on their oil-services ship off the coast of Nigeria, the company they work for said Wednesday.
There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack on the Bourbon Alexandre by several speedboats, the oil services company said in a statement.
Sixteen crew members were onboard at the time. Thirteen remained on the ship and were unhurt, the company said.
The company provides ship and underwater services to oil and gas clients worldwide. It declined to release any more information.
It was unclear where the fourth hostage was abducted.
MEND, the key militant group in the oil-rich Niger Delta, is an umbrella organization of several rebel groups. It has been battling the government for years over fairer distribution of the country's oil wealth.

niggers support communist ideology because it promises them money for doing nothing,

By MIKE STOBBE (AP) – 8 hours ago

ATLANTA — One in five sexually active gay and bisexual men has the AIDS virus, and nearly half of those don't know they are infected, a federal study of 21 U.S. cities shows.

Experts said the findings are similar to earlier research, but the study released Thursday is the largest to look at gay and bisexual U.S. men at high risk for HIV. More than 8,000 men were tested and interviewed, and 44 percent of those who had the virus didn't know they had it.

Overall, less than half of 1 percent of Americans have the AIDS virus, according to a calculation by the Kaiser Family Foundation, a research and policy organization in Washington, D.C.

But gay and bisexual men continue to be infected at much higher rates, said Jennifer Kates, Kaiser's director of global health and HIV policy.

"We don't have a generalized epidemic in the United States. We have a concentrated epidemic among certain populations," she said.

That's why a new national AIDS strategy, unveiled by the White House in July, is emphasizing more of a government focus on men who have sex with men and others at the highest risk of getting infected, Kates said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends HIV testing at least once a year for all men who have sex with men and are sexually active, but research indicates more than half don't get tested.

Following on from drawing a giant penis on a bridge, a group of 'artists' in St. Petersburg have moved onto a new form of artisitic protest - tipping over police cars.

The group - which calls itself Voina - flipped over eight patrol cars in one night as a protest against what they claim is widespread corruption in police ranks in St Petersburg.
The group was previously responsible for such protests as staging an orgy in Moscow's Biological Museum, and memorably painting a 200ft high penis on a St. Petersburg drawbridge.

Alexei Plutser-Sarno, a spokesman for the group, said on his blog: 'The police won't pursue us. We have neither money nor property, so there's nothing to get from us. The werewolves in epaulettes don't work for no reason and for free.'

Another of the group's stunts involved releasing thousands of cockroaches into a court room where two group members were facing trial over one exhibition.

Russian art expert David Riff commented: 
'The aim of art is to provoke and oppose, and Voina is the only group now which still performs these kinds of things.'

Raul Diaz of the Mexican Superintendence of Tax Administration confirmed this week that the Mexican government intends to build a wall along the Mexican/Guatemalan border. Diaz claims that the official purpose of the wall is to prevent the passage of contraband, but has also admitted “It could also prevent the free passage of illegal immigrants.”

Defending the decision to construct the wall, Mexico’s National Commission on Human Rights states that 500,000 people from Central America cross into Mexico illegally every year.

The proposal to construct the wall appears to go against the principles held by Mexican President Felipe Calderon, who, when speaking out against the state of Arizona for its tough immigration measure, remarked, “Criminalizing immigration, which is a social economic phenomena, this way opens the door to intolerance, hate, and discrimination. My government cannot and will not remain indifferent when these kinds of policies go against human rights.”

Apparently, Calderon's views on border control are relative.

Dave Gibson of The Examiner notes the hypocrisy in the Mexican government’s sudden change of heart as the Mexican authorities have long criticized the United States for the construction of a fence along a United States/Mexican border. Likewise, Mexico asserts that the passage of 500,000 people from Central America into Mexico is an appropriate reason for a fence, but that many people annually cross into the state of Arizona alone. Yet, that has not stopped Mexico from criticizing Arizona for the introduction of its immigration law, Senate Bill 1070.

Of course, this is not the first time the American people have encountered hypocrisy from the Mexican government regarding illegal immigration. In an article entitled “How Mexico Treats Its Illegal Aliens,” conservative writer Michelle Malkin outlined Mexico’s treatment of illegal aliens, which could be dubbed “intolerant, hateful, and discriminatory,” in the words of Calderon. Mexico demands a number of things from its illegals, particularly that they contribute to the “economic and social interests” of the country, while not upsetting “the equilibrium of the national

* Nearly half are unaware of their infection-CDC

* CDC calls for renewed HIV prevention efforts

CHICAGO, Sept 23 (Reuters) - Nearly one in five gay and bisexual men in 21 major U.S. cities are infected with HIV, and nearly half of them do not know it, U.S. health officials said on Thursday.

Young men, and especially young black men, are least likely to know if they are infected with HIV, according to a study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"We need to reinvigorate our response to preventing HIV among gay and bisexual men," Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC's Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, said in a telephone interview.

"We can't allow HIV to continue its devastating toll among gay and bisexual men, and in particular, among young black men."

Mermin's comments echoed an AIDS policy rolled out in July by the White House that asked states and federal agencies to find ways to cut new HIV infections by 25 percent. [IDnN13274350]

Researchers at the CDC studied 8,153 men who have sex with men in 21 U.S. cities. The men were taking part in the 2008 National HIV Behavioral Surveillance System, which looked at prevalence and awareness of the human immunodeficiency virus or HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

A man in Michigan has been arrested after getting into a fight with a parrot which he carried around in his rucksack.

The man - who wasn't named, but was reported to be a 49-year-old from Jackson, Michigan - was arrested in nearby Ann Arbor after witnesses reported seeing him wrestling with the bird.
According to the eye-witness reports, he was shaking the pet parrot - which he had been carrying in his backpack - so violently that some if its feathers were being shaken off.
Three different bystanders called the police over the parrot fight. When officers arrived, they said that they found the parrot to be 'squawking loudly', according to police spokeswoman Lieutenant Renee Bush.
But the parrot wasn't taking things lying down - it was fighting back, according to the police, who said that the man's thumb was left 'scratched and bloodied'.
The parrot's owner told police that he was training and disciplining the bird. He was arrested and taken to jail, where he was awaiting charges.

UN Human Rights Council accuses Israel of a 'disproportionate' response to Gaza blockade-breakers, nine of whom died

A UN-appointed panel said today that Israeli forces violated international law, "including international humanitarian and human rights law", during and after their lethal attack on a flotilla of ships attempting to break the blockade of Gaza in May.

The UN Human Rights Council's fact-finding mission judged Israel's naval blockade of the Palestinian territory to be "unlawful" because there was a humanitarian crisis in Gaza at the time.

The panel's report, published today, described Israel's military response to the flotilla as "disproportionate" and said it "betrayed an unacceptable level of brutality".

Eight Turkish activists and one Turkish-American were killed in the raid, which prompted international criticism of both the attack and Israel's policy of blockading the Gaza Strip. Israel has since eased its embargo, although still refuses to allow full imports and exports and the free movement of people.

Israel says the soldiers acted in self-defence. But the mission criticised the Israeli government for failing to co-operate with its inquiry. "Regrettably to date, no information has been given to the mission by or on behalf of the government of Israel," it said.

The panel was led by Karl Hudson-Phillips, a retired judge of the international criminal court and former attorney general of Trinidad and Tobago.

That was a rather stupid thing to do for a country that always has the international spotlight on them.

Israel is a rogue state operating with the support of the West, it has nothing to fear from its own benefactors.

Rep. Mike Castle is planning on polling a potential three-way Senate race to test his chances as a write-in candidate, a Delaware Republican tells POLITICO.

Castle, who lost his GOP primary by a 6-point margin to tea party upstart Christine O’Donnell nine days ago, opened the door to a potential write-in bid Wednesday evening when he told reporters off the House floor it was still a possibility he was considering.

The GOP source did not have specifics on when Castle’s team would conduct the poll, but viewed it as a practical step even if the nine-term congressman was unlikely to re-enter the race.

A spokeswoman for Castle, who put the chances of him running as a write-in “under 5 percent,” said her boss likely wouldn’t settle on a final decision before next week. According to the state Elections Commission, Castle would have to complete a form by next Thursday to officially qualify as a write-in candidate.

Said Castle spokeswoman Kate Dickens: “A lot of encouragement has come in, nice calls from people in Delaware who want an independent voice.”

Dickens, who would not confirm a plan to poll, said Castle has mostly been focused on House business, but has taken calls from those urging him to pursue a bid without a party banner.
Delaware GOP National Committeewoman Priscilla Rakestraw said she has fielded dozens of calls over the last 48 hours, mostly from Democrats, about a potential Castle write-in campaign.

“They want to organize a write-in campaign. I’m stunned. Obviously, they don’t like their option of voting for Chris Coons. I pass them along to Mike Castle’s organization. I think they are waiting for a nod from Castle,” Rakestraw said.

Democratic Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, D-Santa Ana, said in a recent Spanish-language interview that "the Vietnamese" and Republicans are trying to wrest control of her seat in Congress, from which "we have done so much for our community."

Her opponent, Republican Assemblyman Van Tran – who immigrated from Vietnam -- asked for an apology Thursday. He described Sanchez’s remarks as “offensive and wrong.”

Sanchez, D-Santa Ana, is facing her toughest re-election challenge in years, separated in polls by only a few percentage points from Tran. Her reference to “the Vietnamese” has bounced around the blogosphere in recent days and fired up talk radio.

"During the interview," her campaign said in a written statement, "Rep. Sanchez was referencing those in the Vietnamese community who are supporting her opponent."

The Van Tran campaign pounced. "Her attack against immigrants and the Vietnamese community on national television is shocking," campaign manager George Andrews said. "The 47th congressional district belongs to the people and not an individual ethnicity."

Sanchez made the remark during an interview last week with broadcaster Jorge Ramos on the Spanish-language television station Univision. She acknowledged during the interview that she is only "two or three points" ahead of Tran and then said, in Spanish:

"The Vietnamese and the Republicans are, with an intensity, (trying) to take this seat – this seat (from which) we have done so much for our community – to take this seat and give it to this Van Tran, who is very anti-immigrant and very anti-Hispanic."

Tran himself is an immigrant, having escaped Vietnam with his family shortly before the fall of Saigon. He has said he believes his immigrant past gives him an advantage in the central Orange County district.

AN Australian artist will ask American TV talk show queen Oprah Winfrey to strip off and have her body painted for charity when she comes Down Under in December.

Sydney body painter and make-up artist Eva Rinaldi has started an international campaign to get the huge star to agree to being tastefully painted with Australian icons, such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Bondi Beach, while wearing only a bikini, the Mosman Daily reports.

The stunt would not only be for a kick but to also raise money for a worthy cause of Winfreys choice, Rinaldi said.

Winfrey will film at least two episodes of her talk show during her stay, including one at the Sydney Opera House when the iconic building will be transformed into the Sydney Oprah House.

"Im a huge fan," Rinaldi said. "I have always wanted to body paint her."

Missoula County Sheriff's Lt. Rich Maricelli says a 200-pound black bear attacked the woman's 12-year-old collie just after midnight Wednesday on the back porch of her home about 15 miles west of Missoula.

When the woman, whom police did not name, screamed to draw the bear's attention, it charged her and swiped at her leg.

Maricelli says the woman jumped back into the doorway and reached for the nearest object on her kitchen counter — a 12-inch zucchini from her garden.

The woman flung the vegetable at the bear, striking it on top of the head and causing it to flee.

Maricelli says the woman did not need medical attention. Wildlife officials were trying to locate the bear on Thursday.

Senate Republicans on Thursday stood fast in blocking legislation requiring special interest groups running campaign ads to identify their donors.

Mirroring a Senate vote on the bill last July, all 39 Republicans who voted stopped Democrats from bringing the campaign disclosure bill to the Senate floor. The 59-39 vote fell one short of the 60 needed to advance the legislation. Two Republicans didn't vote.

Republicans dismissed Democratic efforts to revive the bill as an attempt to win political points before the midterm elections.

The White House-backed measure is a response to a 5-4 Supreme Court decision last January overturning a decades-old law that barred corporations, unions and other organizations from spending on advertising, mass mailings and other forms of political activity.

Democrats warned that the ruling would lead to a deluge of ads from shadowy special interest groups financed by corporate millions.

"It's no longer a premonition, it's a reality," said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., a main sponsor of the legislation, pointing to special interest ads already running in states such as Ohio and California with hotly contested political races.

"We have these nameless, faceless individuals spending huge amounts of money, corporate money and other money. There is certainly no transparency whatsoever," Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said.

But Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Democrats were playing "pure politics" in trying to stop opponents from criticizing Democratic policies. "They're trying to rig the system to their advantage. That's it. It's quite simple."
