              I don't want to listen 1hour... (someone make a summary !)
              also, I only understand about 90%,

              what disease are they going to talk about with Susan Kolb



              Internet is better than radio. It's archived, shorter.
              It can be searched for keywords.
              It can easily be copied.
              It can be quoted and reviewed and discussed.

              do we have working voice-recognition software ?

              However/But talking is faster than typing

                  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgellons

                  can't they make a special panflu-series, without other diseases ?

                  I think, it's worth it. It's not just one disease out of dozends of others,
                  where you usually only become interested in when a friend or relative
                  has it.

                      Susan Kolb is a plastic surgeon and the talk is from that perspective.

                          I thought both F1's and Dr. Nabarro's talks were excellent and very comprehensive. Thought I would bring up one problem I had with Dr. Nabarro's talk....

                          He states that the lack of media coverage on MSM such as CNN, BBC, FoxNews etc is not a bad thing as it implies that people are accepting that their governments are doing the work that is necessary to protect them. I think this is true in many areas but...
                          he also mentioned that populations including urban centers should be prepared for severe movement restrictions, social distancing etc for a period of 6 weeks to 3 months if we have a pandemic influenza. During this time these people need access to basic essential services.... I see this as a disconnect with public trust...

                          Is the public aware they may be 'on their own' for 6 weeks to 3 months? Is the govt they are putting their trust in ready to provide basic essential services for this period?

                          It has always been realized that community preparedness is important but I think this puts it into a sharp focus... More regionally oriented governments such as states, cities, districts etc are probably better able to give this the attention it deserves... I liked this recent Times article on California....

                          Citizen Soldiers

                          Friday, Feb. 29, 2008 By AMANDA RIPLEY

                          At precisely 1:09 p.m. on Feb. 26, all but four of the 2,670 traffic lights in Miami--Dade County, Fla., went dark. A blackout, sparked by a fire, crept up the state, affecting 4 million people. Traffic choked the roadways. The nuclear reactors at the Turkey Point power plant shut down. As air-conditioning faded on an 84F (29C) day, thousands wandered into the streets.

                          Coincidentally, on the very same day in California, the other state that understands what it is like to routinely plunge into near and total catastrophe, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was announcing a quiet revolution. Stunned by what he had recently seen in his own state--neighbors saving one another from wildfires, an oil spill that drew thousands of unsolicited, underutilized cleanup volunteers (above)--he created a new cabinet-level post to manage volunteers.

                          As with universal health care and greenhouse-gas caps, Schwarzenegger and California are once again doing what the rest of the country shoulda coulda done but didn't. After Hurricane Katrina, the secret was out that government alone would never be able to manage big disasters. First responders like firefighters and police make up less than 1% of the population. They cannot be everywhere--or even most places. So the vast majority of rescues are done by regular people. The problem is, regular people have almost never been intelligently engaged in emergency planning--until, perhaps, now. "It's a brilliant move," says Wendy Spencer, head of Florida's volunteerism commission. "Others will pay attention. You'll have mayors, emergency managers saying, 'Wow, if it's that important to the governor, maybe we need to look at this.'"

                          In Florida the power was mostly back on by evening. But when the Big One shakes down California, people will be on their own--in the preindustrial sense--for three to five days: no electricity, gas, running water or phone service. Everyone will be a volunteer, which will be a euphemism for survivor. "The first person who is going to help you is your neighbor," says Karen Baker, California's new secretary of service and volunteering. "So we want your neighbor to know how."

                            I agree with Kent.

                            My main concern as stated before concerning urban areas, is the stocking of chlorine for potable water, it can more easily be done if it is stock out of the urban zone in respect of many environmental laws. Therefore Urbans govs should reach out to the neibourhood cities to solves this problem and to stock some fuel over there for the generators at the pumping station.

                            Snowy

                            It works you know.

                              News Now - SANDY SPRINGS, GA, April 10, 2008 - Dr. David Nabarro, United Nations Pandemic Flu Director of Preparedness, was interviewed on http://www.radiosandysprings.com and discussed the continuing spread and threat of the Avian Flu (Bird Flu) H5N1 virus following an update from Sharon Sanders of FluTrackers.com.

                              Dr. Nabarro concurred that 2007 seemed to be a year of control while 2008 is already seeing a much more aggressive outbreak of poultry domestic and wild birds infected with the H5N1 virus. Indonesia is in an endemic state and unable to control the spread in backyard poultry - chickens. Korea has had another outbreak while another human death was reported in Egypt. The Avian Flu is spreading in fowl and of major concern are the warm blooded animals that eat the diseased birds. All making the possibility of a worldwide pandemic more possible daily.

                              Concerns are for human-to-human transmission which will ultimately have a disastrous affect obviously on humans, families, cities and the WORLD economy. That is why the large financial organizations around-the-world are working day and night to prepare for the ultimate. And yet, no one knows "if and when". But, better to be prepared than be caught unprepared tomorrow or years from now.

                              The Dr. Nabarro interview can be download from http://www.radiosandysprings.com or iTunes.

                              Dr. David Nabarro, be prepared for a worldwide Avian Flu Pandemic!
