Two doctors on a British Airways flight performed a surgery on a woman with a collapsed lung by using a urinary catheter, a wire hanger, a half-filled bottle of Evian, and some 5-star brandy from first class. They not only saved her life, but she was back to normal within 15 minutes. Source

Doctors are cool.

Fast-Moving Ebola Slows Down Liberia’s Economy
Postwar Liberia had struggled back onto its feet in the past decade, after the civil war, and was just catching its collective breath when Ebola landed. One of the lasting effects of Ebola on the country is likely to be its impact on the economy.
In Liberia, Ebola was first detected in March in Lofa County in the north. Although the epidemic has brought some temporary jobs to the area, the virus is costing Liberia’s economy dear. Local businesses and farmers say they’re hurting.
Dozens of Liberians hover outside the Doctors Without Borders Ebola clinic in Foya, a town in Lofa. They’re all looking for temporary work.
Young, unemployed men and women are waiting and hoping their names will be called to join the front-line workers in the battle against the virus. Hygienists, carpenters and others work at the relief agency’s expanded Case Management Center for Ebola patients and suspected cases.
Alfred Pongay, a 24-year-old student, has been coming to the clinic for the past two weeks, looking for work. “I come in the morning, 8 o’clock,” he says, adding that he’s ready to do whatever work is offered — dig holes, crush rocks, erect additional tents or carry plants.
Another student, 26-year-old Mary Nyumah, has arrived for her first day of training in the zone where relief workers dress in protective clothing. She peels an orange and waits patiently.

“We are At War now — with somebody — and we will stay At War with that mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives.” — Hunter S. Thompson

I’m 49 years old, and my country has been at war since before I was born. I am starting to see the cracks here at the ground level. War is not the answer. Let us put as much money into peace keeping as we do into war mongering. Let us, all of us, demand peace now. Let each of us turn to our enemy and embrace them. Let us find the middle ground so that we can end the destruction and begin the era of creation.
