A hospital in Liberia is a plywood shack with tarps hanging around it. The hospital in Atlanta is essentially run by the CDC and includes the highest isolation hospital ward available in the US. For you to believe that Ebola will spread from that location you'd have to believe that the CDC and the infectious disease docs at one of the nation's better hospitals are such clowns that they'd fuck up the thing they've been focusing their entire careers on. Do you believe that? And what do you think will happen? You think some janitor is allowed to randomly walk into that location and start dicking around with bloody bandages? Everyone in the hospital will be terrified of going near these two, except for the people who are qualified to do so. [ Reply | More ]

here's the thing: when you wash your hair daily it dries out the scalp. the skin then overcompensated by producing excess oil hence your hair gets greasy easily. secondly, you need to find a gentle clarifying shampoo. i get the "giovanni - golden wheat deep cleanse shape" at whole foods. as for the intermittent look: put your hair up in a chic do if it's long enough. people don't notice the greasiness as much as you do. trust me.

that's thanks to the UN (maybe Israel's real reason to bomb UN schools)? Macabre, yes, but Israel promised Palestine many times that it'll go bat shit crazy "nishtagea" if it went to the UN to become a country. Guess what? Israel gave Palestine no choice but to do it through the UN. Result: 2012 70% of the countries in the world recorgnice it as a country AND has full access to the ICJ-ICC. Mahmoud Abbas is the absolute hero in this story of struggle for dignity and justice (and ability to keep their land). He is well deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize for giving Palestinians finally a legal conduit to kick Israel's ass. [ Reply | More ]

Read this: "All States are under an obligation not to recognize the illegal situation resulting from the construction of the wall and not to render aid or assistance in maintaining the situation created by such construction; all States parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War of 12 August 1949 have in addition the obligation, while respecting the United Nations Charter and international law, to ensure compliance by Israel with international humanitarian law as embodied in that Convention”".

Yes and now all your Arab countries are even content to let Israel do their dirty work, because they want Hamas out. They are in effect "siding" with Israel over Hamas! You seem to be the only one loving the terrorists. Why is that? There should be a Palestianian state and it is awful that when Israel pulled out of Gaza, the people voted Hamas in who killed all the other party and immediately began firing rockets. Such a wasted opportunity. [ Reply | More ]

Hon the State of Palestine's borders are pre-1967 as decided by the UN. The ICJ - ICC already issued their view and agrees as well with pre-1967 as an obvious fact of the most basic International Law. Read it! http://www.icj-cij.org/docket/index.php?pr=71&code=mwp&p1=3&p2=4&p3=6 [ Reply | More ]

and don't be upset about EU considering them illegal and de-funding those areas from any contracts/grants. They are just following the law: "All States are under an obligation not to recognize the illegal situation resulting from the construction of the wall and not to render aid or assistance in maintaining the situation created by such construction; all States parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War of 12 August 1949 have in addition the obligation, while respecting the United Nations Charter and international law, to ensure compliance by Israel with international humanitarian law as embodied in that Convention”" [ Reply | More ]
