2011 – Host Melissa McCarthy reunites with Bridesmaids costar Kristen Wiig to portray Dooneese’s Cousin Gert in the cold open

When you have a host in the cold open, you know it’s going to be good! Right after screaming “Live from New York” with Wiig, Melissa ran backstage for a quick change to prep for her monologue. Watch her tell our buddy Jimmy Fallon how it all went down back on Late Night.

Ebola has arrived to the USA, actually to Dallas, Texas for the start. Let’s not panic and arm ourselves in KNOWLEDGE.

This is the first case of Ebola confirmed in the United States.

"There is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it," said Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at a Tuesday afternoon news conference in Atlanta.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW? - EBOLA 101 INFOGRAPHIC

People can be exposed to Ebola virus from direct physical contact with body fluids like blood, saliva, stool, urine, sweat etc. of an infected person and soiled linen used by a patient.

It can be spread through contact with objects, such as needles, that have been contaminated with infected secretions.

BELOW - the WHO advice for African countries - reading them will help you realize that the danger of spreading in the USA in an uncontrolled way is very small.

How can it be prevented?

  • Avoid direct contact with body fluids of a person suffering from Ebola or a deceased patient by wearing gloves, goggles, and masks
  • Persons suspected to be suffering from Ebola should be taken to the nearest health unit immediately for medical attention. Tracing and follow up of people who may have been exposed to Ebola through close contact with patients are essential.
  • Persons who have died of Ebola must be handled using strong protective wear and buried immediately;
  • Report any suspected cases of Ebola to the nearest health unit immediately
  • Suspected cases should be isolated from other patients and strict barrier nursing techniques implemented.
  • All hospital staff should be briefed on the nature of the disease and its transmission routes. Particular emphasis should be placed on ensuring that invasive procedures such as the placing of intravenous lines and the handling of blood, secretions, catheters and suction devices are carried out under strict barrier nursing conditions. Hospital staff should have individual gowns, gloves, masks and goggles. Non-disposable protective equipment must not be reused unless they have been properly disinfected.
  • Infection may also spread through contact with the soiled clothing or bed linens from a patient with Ebola. Disinfection is therefore required before handling these items.
  • Communities affected by Ebola should make efforts to ensure that the population is well informed, both about the nature of the disease itself and about necessary outbreak containment measures, including burial of the deceased. People who have died from Ebola should be promptly and safely buried.

Contacts

  • As the primary mode of person-to-person transmission is contact with contaminated blood, secretions or body fluids, people who have had close physical contact with patients should be kept under strict surveillance. Their body temperature should be checked twice a day, with immediate hospitalization and strict isolation in case of the onset of fever.

I wonder how many people have showed up at the ER with Ebola……lol.  though it’s no laughing matter, the mindset of so many is!

For everyone on my dash who is clueless about the science behind Ebola. Unless you’ve been knee deep in vomit, blood, or other human secretions, please calm down.

Ever want to see how bad Hollywood wants white people in everything?

Watch Godzilla (2014). They made the damn monster swim across the mother fucking Pacific Ocean for a fight in California. That is how bad.

I AM FUCKING CRYING THIS IS SO TRUE.

As if there were NO nuclear power plants in Japan for the monsters to eat like get the entire fuck.

The monsters were Japanese and yet somehow the entire movie was about this white dude in the Navy like ?????

Ancient Egypt was not a mixed society.

Ancient Egypt was PITCHED BLACK until the 7th century AD, when Indo Aryans called Arabs invaded from Central Asia.

For 99 percent of Egyptian history, Egypt was as BLACK as Nigeria, as BLACK as Congo, and as BLACK as Senegal.

King Tut was a dark skinned black man,

Queen Tiye was a beautiful and EXTREMELY dark skinned woman.

Hatshepsut was also very very very dark skinned.

Even during the Ptolemaic period of Kemet, the Egyptians were primarily African.

The fact that the most advanced civilization of human history was composed primarily of Black People is the most annoying and frustrating thing to white supremacist historians today.

Okay?
And?
So?!
