The Zika Virus Is Just One Of The Diseases Carried By Mosquitoes According To Brazilian Medical Expert Dr. Sergio Cortes

The Zika virus is turning Americans into a mosquito hating group of people that will stop at nothing to rid the planet of the long-nosed bugs. It’s true. Mosquitoes are responsible for killing more people than any other animal. Even though the Zika virus is not fatal, in most cases, the complications from the virus can be devastating, according to Brazil’s top medical doctor, Sergio Cortes. Dr. Cortes knows that mosquitoes have been infecting Brazilians with dengue and chikungunya for decades. The Aedes aegypti mosquito is the pest that carries Zika, dengue and chikungunya. But other mosquitoes species can carry virus too, according to a recent article about Dr. Cortes posted by

The battle against mosquitoes on the streets of Brazil has been going on for decades, and the mosquitoes are winning, according to Noticias R7 report about Dr. Cortes. The fact is, the mosquito population is increasing in Brazil even though a larvicide spraying process has been going on for years. But it’s not just Brazil that is having mosquito issues. Mosquitoes are turning up in cities that never had mosquitoes before. One reason for the increase in the Aedes aegypti population is that mosquito can breed in clean water. And that species doesn’t need much water to lay eggs, according to a recent article posted on the Dr. Cortes LinkedIn page.

The old notion that viruses like Zika, dengue and chikungunya are confined to tropical climates is not true anymore. People have transported mosquitoes around the world, and they people have provided a trash-filled landscape for mosquitoes to thrive in. On Facebook, Dr. Cortes said the Aedes aegypti mosquito can breed in car tires, dog bowls, tin cans, flower vases, and even bottle caps. The female mosquito actually spreads the Zika virus when they take multiple bites of the protein found in human blood. That protein is food for mosquito eggs.

According to a Dr. Cortes tweet, encephalitis, dengue, Zika and chikungunya viruses are invading countries in Europe, thanks to the traveling abilities of mosquitoes. But Europe is not the only region in the world that is having an onslaught of viruses. No city or rural area is immune to the Zika virus, according to Dr. Cortes unless those cities and rural areas are located more than 6,500 feet above sea level.

Even though the main focus is on the Zika virus because of the rapid spread throughout the Americas, there are other viruses that have the potential of causing similar complications. In 2014, there was a large epidemic of chikungunya in the Caribbean. That virus had never been in that area before and in 2007, the same virus invaded Italy, and that was another first.

High Quality Dog Food Becomes the New Standard


It is not often that people see a change that is so drastic in the dog food industry. People have started to accept that there is a level of quality in dog food that is becoming the new standard. More and more pet owners are finding out that high quality dog food is not just some experimental fad. To the contrary, this higher level of quality in pet food is becoming the new norm. I have seen it first hand, and there is a high level of excitement that people are linking to this.

Pet owners don’t have the ability to really know how great the dog food tastes themselves. They can only gauge if the dogs like the food by their reactions. I have been feeding my dogs some of the high quality Purina Beneful dog food, and it is among the best in the industry. This food comes in so many different varieties. I never run out of new meals to buy my dog. I have purchased the Beneful Healthy Harvest and the Beneful Playful Life and I have not had any problems.

I have seen a lot of other brands that are simply starting to imitate what Beneful has been doing. I think that this makes Beneful the blueprint for the high quality brands. I have never seen one brand offer many different snacks along with wet and dry foods. This shows off the creative streak of the people that are involved with this brand. It takes a lot of work to come up with all of this, and many people have become loyal to these brands.

There are other brands that are trying to compete with Beneful though, and some are doing a great job. Pedigree has been one of the brands that I picked as a stand out for dog owners. Newman’s Own is another brand that has proven to be among the better high quality dog food brands. AvoDerm and Pet Guard Organics are also producing some good dog food. This variety allows a large number of people to try multiple brands for their dogs.

Sergio Cortes: Zika Virus Emerges in Brazil

The primary cases of zika virus emerged within the 1940’s in some African locations consisting of Uganda, Sierra Leone and Tanzania. Over time, says Dr. Sergio Cortes of, the virus additionally spread throughout Asia, reaching countries like India and Thailand, for instance.

In 2015, the virus began to appear in nine international locations in Latin America, the U.S.A, Brazil, Mexico and Colombia. This ended up causing the WHO to release a warning about the risks of the disorder and possible side affects and consequences that zika virus is able to generate in those who had been infected.

In Brazil, the primary instances of zika virus occurred in April and continuous growth inside the country of the quantity of occurrences of the disorder has triggered a alarming situation among health experts in the country. On the one hand the signs and symptoms of zika virus do not get to be extreme and the ailment can be controlled and cured, says Dr. Sergio Cortes, what is simply stressful for doctors is that there’s a link between zika virus and microcephaly which resembles Guillain-Barre syndrome. Dr. Sergio Cortes descries Guillain-Barre syndrome as a critical neurological disease and autoimmune disorder, which in keeping in line with the latest surveys carried out by way of the WHO, also can be liked to zika.

The zika virus isn’t contagious and therefore can’t be transmitted from one man or woman to any other. The simplest manner to get the disease is through the bite of the mosquito Aedes aegypti, which is likewise blamed for the transmission of dengue and chikungunya fever. But, according to Sergio Cortes, when a mosquito that isn’t infected with the Zika virus bites someone who has this sickness, the mosquito seems to be infected and from there starts to transmit the disease to people who are ultimately bitten, thereby producing a sequence that is difficult to control.

The Aedes aegypti prefers to lay eggs in clean water and virtually any area serves as a possible breeding location. Dr. Sergio Cortes factors out that even bottle caps, if they have water, can serve as a breeding area for mosquitoes.

Signs and Diagnosis
The signs of Zika virus aren’t aggressive and usually last 3 to 7 days and even disappear without medication. Symptoms range extremely from one person to another, and the most common are fever and a rash.

George Soros is founder and chair of Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Foundations. He has been an active philanthropist since 1979 when he began providing funds to help black students attend Cape Town University in apartheid South Africa. Today, the Open Society Foundations operate in more than 100 countries working to promote the values of open society, human rights and transparency. Recently, Soros has warned that the European Union is on the verge of collapse after the recent migrant crisis and is in “danger of kicking the ball further up the hill” in its management of the issue.
In recent interviews with the New York Review of Books and Gregor Peter Schmitz of the German magazine WirtschaftsWoche, Soros discussed how he believes German Chancellor Angela Merkel is key to solving the crisis.
“There is plenty to be nervous about,” Soros has said, speaking about Merkel. “As she correctly predicted, the EU is on the verge of collapse. Merkel correctly foresaw the potential of the migration crisis to destroy the European Union. What was a prediction has become the reality. The European Union badly needs fixing. This is a fact but it is not irreversible. And the people who can stop Merkel’s dire prediction from coming true are actually the German people. Now it’s time for Germans to decide: Do they want to accept the responsibilities and the liabilities involved in being the dominant power in Europe?”
In his recently published book, The Tragedy of the European Union, Soros writes that the European Union could soon be a thing of the past. According to the book’s page on Soros’s website, the EU has declined in the past ten years “from a unified global power to a fractious confederation of states with staggering unemployment.” He says that if the EU does collapse and “the former member states are transformed again from partners into rivals, the US and the world will confront the serious economic and political consequences that follow.”
In his interview for WirtschaftsWoche, Soros also had this to say about why he supports Merkel: “[In] the case of the migration issue, she did act on principle, and she was willing to risk her leadership position. She deserves the support of those who share her principles. I take this very personally. I am a strong supporter of the values and principles of an open society because of my personal history, surviving the Holocaust as a Jew under the Nazi occupation of Hungary. And I believe that she shares those values because of her personal history, growing up under Communist rule in East Germany under the influence of her father, who was a pastor. That makes me her supporter.”

A Talking Robot Takes It To Telemarketers

Telemarketers have a tough job. A person who possesses serious skill as a telemarketer is a rare creature, and one who can earn significant income. To the person receiving the phone call, this is all moot. The vast majority of people on the planet just don’t want to deal with telemarketer phone calls. So, they hang up. Now, another option exists. Telemarketers are not likely to be thrilled at the arrival of a unique talking robot.

The robot likes to talk, and talk it will. The robot will chat it up with Jon Urbana from Ellipse USA or any other marketer until the telemarketer realizes he or she is being conned. At that point, the telemarketer is sure to hang up and move onto another phone number. The person who dispatched the robot then has the last laugh.

The use of the robot may seem a bit cruel but, as the saying goes, turnabout is fair play. If telemarketers are going to disturb people in their homes, the telemarketers should not complain about equally inconsiderate treatment.

People cannot be blamed for the frustration they feel about telemarketers. Numbers are put on the “Do Not Call List” all the time. Telemarketers still call. Even when someone repeatedly tells the same telemarketing company not to call, calls continue. So, drastic steps have to be taken. These steps come in the form of a vengeful robot. Maybe the use of the evil talking robot will nudge telemarketers to finally go elsewhere.

With the requirements placed onto the page, it keeps everything unified and organized. It is also what the page is looking for when creating a Wiki.
