How One Washington State Senator Is Rationalizing The Measles Outbreak (HBO)

CLARK COUNTY, Washington — The United is currently home to six ongoing measles outbreaks. But with 70 confirmed cases, Clark County, Washington in particular, has gotten a lot of attention. It’s quickly become a classic example of what happens when parents hesitate to vaccinate their children. Still, the spread of a highly contagious and sometimes deadly disease hasn’t been enough to change everyone’s minds about vaccines.

Washington State Senator Lynda Wilson told VICE News during a recent interview that she believes the measles vaccine has caused more harm than the disease itself — a statement that has been debunked by multiple peer-reviewed studies, including a massive study published this week. She also said she hasn’t actively reached out to any scientists or doctors to verify her opinion on the matter. “I’m kind of busy up here, and so I’m just dealing with what I’m getting from my constituents,” she said.

The measles is a nasty disease that can lead to serious complications, including swelling of the brain and pneumonia. It also kills around 1 or two children out of every 1000 who become infected. That’s why scientists recommend the vaccine, which is both safe and effective. But right now, Clark County has an unusually low vaccination rate.

So, Senator Wilson’s view of vaccines aren’t just emblematic of the crisis — they could also have an impact on upcoming legislation. A proposed bill would eliminate one of Washington’s non-medical vaccine exemptions, the philosophical exemption, and Senator Wilson has already said she plans to vote to keep the exemption. “I don’t believe that everyone should be having to do them,” she said, in reference to vaccines.

Despite having vaccinated her own children when they were younger, Wilson doesn’t think parents should be required to do so with their own kids — at least not American parents. “The cases are coming from out of the country,” she said. “So, you know, maybe what we should do is start thinking about requiring vaccinations if you’re coming into our country. Maybe they should be vaccinated instead of requiring all of our people to be vaccinated.”

The CDC says that the current measles outbreaks are linked to travelers. But there’s little evidence to suggest that vaccinating visitors to the United States would be at all effective. That’s because the measles vaccine, called MMR, is only 93 percent protective after a single dose, so people who aren’t vaccinated can still get sick. That’s why scientists say it’s important for communities to reach a certain vaccination rate — a concept called “herd immunity.” When a high number of individuals in a community are vaccinated, that limits the spread of disease and prevents those who, for medical reasons, cannot be vaccinated from becoming sick.

“Measles continues to exist in other countries and within the United States,” a spokesperson for Clark County Public Health told VICE News. “As long as measles is present elsewhere, it’s only a plane, car, train or boat ride away from our community and will continue to be a risk for our community or any community with large unvaccinated populations.”

Senator Wilson says the current outbreak is under control. Moreover, she says the people who were infected will benefit from the disease. “We didn’t have any deaths, and we didn’t have any hospital stays. So I don’t know that it’s unacceptable,” she said. “I mean, now these people have full immunity for the rest of their lives.”

VICE News went to Washington state to see how the measles outbreak is impacting a parent, a pediatrician, and a legislator.

How To Get The Most Money And Perks If You Get Bumped From A Flight

Scott Keyes of Scott’s Cheap Flights loves getting bumped on a flight because it puts him in a great spot for negotiating a deal. Here he explains how to get the most out of getting bumped. Following is a transcript of the video.

Scott Keyes: I love getting bumped from flights. And the reason why I love getting bumped from flights is it puts you in an amazing bargaining position.

My name is Scott Keyes. I’m the CEO and co-founder of Scott’s Cheap Flights.

You know, especially after the recent news controversy, that really tough to watch videos from that United flight, airlines want to do whatever they can to avoid being in the news for that. And so they are much more willing, especially nowadays, to say, rather than just give you $250 voucher they’ll go up to $500. They’ll go up to six, eight, $1,000 really quick. And not only can you get a lot more money, whether in terms of actual refund or voucher from the airlines for being bumped for volunteering, you can also negotiate other things.

So, if I get bumped from my flight back to Portland tomorrow, I’m going to say, “Okay. I’ll do it. I want $1,000 travel credit. I also would like to be put on business class or first class on the next flight to Portland that actually get on, and how about some lounge passes in the meantime so I can hang out and eat and drink while I’m waiting for that flight.”

Believe you me, they will, they’ll play ball if you start negotiating, especially if they’re really pressed They have, like, “We need 5 people to volunteer and nobody’s getting up to volunteer.” You can be in a really good bargaining position.

I can get a flight two hours later, get $1,000 for it. I’ll hang out. I’ll have a beer in the bar, it’ll be great, and I’ll get home a couple hours later, and be $1,000 richer for it. One of the things that I’ll be sure to do, let’s say I volunteer but they actually need two more volunteers as well and they keep having to ratchet up the price.

I’ll tell them, “Look. I’m not doing this unless I get what the other people get.” So maybe they don’t get two more volunteers until they get to $500 voucher. I’ll tell them, “Look. That’s what I want too.”

Even once you’ve already kind of put yourself out there make sure you’re getting the most money possible and return.

Iraqi football fans united by love of European teams

“United! United! United!”, they chant with joy in accents that are far from Mancunian. While revered arenas such as Old Trafford or the Camp Nou may be thousands of miles away, supporting some of Europe’s best-loved teams offers a rare chance for Iraqi fans to come together and forget the troubles roiling their homeland.

United’s secret restaurant hidden in Newark Airport is invite-only

In late August, United Airlines opened Classified, the hottest restaurant to hit the airport dining scene in recent memory.

But apart from those dedicated to restaurants and airport dining, few know of its existence and even fewer will have the privilege to dine at the establishment.

And don’t bother exploring the confines of Newark Liberty International Airport’s Terminal C looking for Classified. Your journey will end in futility.

That’s because Classified is invitation only and just a select group of United’s most elite passengers will find their names on the vaunted list.

United and their partner in this endeavor, OTG, have been pretty tight-lipped about who is worthy of an invite. However, being a member of the airline’s elite 1k club — those who fly 100,000 miles a year on United — certainly wouldn’t hurt your chances.

To be able to dine at Classified, United passengers must first receive an email from the airline inviting them to make a reservation. Then, the passenger is made aware of the restaurant’s location along with instructions for how to properly approach the host to gain access to Classified.

Business Insider got an exclusive behind the scenes tour and a chance to experience Classified.

Here’s a closer look at our experience.

Diamonds and Sacrifices (Excerpt from ‘United in Hate: Central African Republic’)

In March 2013, the Seleka, a coalition of predominantly Muslim-armed groups from the northeast, marched on the Central African Republic’s capital Bangui and seized power.

They committed mass atrocities against the population, and to the largely Christian population in the southwest, Muslims began to be associated with violence. They took up arms to form a Christian self-defense militia called the anti-balaka, and carried out revenge killings.

By the end of 2013, the Central African Republic had descended into civil war. Under pressure from the international community, the Seleka were forced to give up power and retreated towards the northeast, where they regrouped.

A United Nations peacekeeping mission and a French military operation were able to stem the fighting, but despite their presence, the transitional government has not been able to regain control of the country outside Bangui.

With the anti-balaka controlling the southwest, and the Seleka controlling the northeast, the Central African Republic is de facto partitioned along ethno-religious lines. For those who find themselves on the wrong side of the divide, life has become hell.

In this excerpt, the coordinator of the anti-balaka movement in Carnot takes VICE News to a diamond mine he oversees, which was reclaimed from Muslim owners during the recent conflict.

On the other side of the country in Bambari, ex-Seleka rebels are terrorizing the Christian population, with thousands forced to seek shelter in a cotton factory following renewed fighting.

How is the world going to regulate medicinal cannabis? – Cannabis News Network

How is the world going to regulate medicinal cannabis? This episode is taking a look at this question. Welcome to Cannabis News Network (http://www.cannabisnewsnetwork.com).

How is the world going to regulate medicinal cannabis? In the Netherlands the office of medicinal cannabis, a government controlled system, audit, controls and supplies the medicinal cannabis through pharmacies.

Updates on regulating medicinal cannabis and more

In this episode you will find updates on regulating medicinal cannabis and much more. Welcome to Cannabis News Network (http://www.cannabisnewsnetwork.com)

How is the world going to regulate medicinal cannabis? In the Netherlands the office of medicinal cannabis, a government controlled system, audit, controls and supplies the medicinal cannabis through pharmacies. In the United states a third party, Patient Focused Certification, controls the medical cannabis industry.

A Dutch study from the Trimbos institute and the office medicinal cannabis, whereby patients inhale medicinal cannabis instead of using orally, shows that patients are very positive with the results.

The acceptance of the use of cannabis is not desirable for the traditional pharmaceutical companies and its anti-drugs groups. There is a lot of money at stake and there is a lot of pressure from political and private organizations to stop the rise of cannabis.

A report just published by the World Health Organisation, an agency of the United Nations, makes a discreet but clear call to decriminalise drugs.

The annual Cannabis Liberation Day was held for the 6th time.
