The Ebola virus is proving to be the deadliest microbe and most complex pathogen in recent history, specifically because Ebola Virus Disease(EVD) spreads within the context of social norms, such as embracing, or touching while caring for an infected carrier or contaminated environment. The alarmist nature of the American tabloids and cable news is causing anxiety and spreading fear and misinformation about the EVD.

Rather, eighty to ninety per cent of the economic effects...

Health-?care costs and illness from the effects of the disease contribute relatively little to its economic impact, according to a World Bank report. Rather, eighty to ninety per cent of the economic effects are due to the “fear factor,” which shuts down transportation systems, including ports and airports, and keeps people away from their jobs.

This show will cover questions from listeners dealing with Hoarding, SSI/SSD, Untreated Mental Illness. and Workplace Conflict:
Wouldn’t it be convenient if we just had a check off list for figuring out whether the person we want to enter a relationship with could turn abusive? Well, it’s not quite that easy, but there are some indicators of risks that the criminal justice system can use to try to determine how high the risks of danger are for person involved in perpetrating domestic violence. This tool helps courts and counsellors look at a situation and what it could turn into in the future. Is this magic? Is it the cure-all for DV? Can it help eliminate homicides? We will talk risk assessment, how it can help, what the weaknesses are, and what the latest research shows on Saturday with Connie Sponsler-Garcia of the Battered Women’s Justice Project. She’s worked for more than 30 years as an advocate for adult and child victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and domestic trafficking; she’s run a battered women’s shelter; and she served on the Department of Defense Domestic Violence Task Force.
