With hundreds of thousands of Chinese entering the USA each year on commercial aircraft direct from China, it is only a matter of time before this newly identified virus starts showing up in the USA, as who is to say that many infected Chinese who will show no symptoms of the virus upon arrival in the country will not walk right into America?

I wonder what is the actual count? Let's face it, the Chinese are everywhere in this country, especially in hi tech areas. Recently, I was on a flight out of DFW TX to Orlando Florida and at least 50% of the passengers were Asian and many wore surgical masks. A few years back, I worked for a company that employed Asians and they would come to work with surgical masks. Obviously, they were trained to do so. Makes sense.

Quick Recap, two days ago this hit the news cycle as a disease that was transmitted from animal to human, but there was no threat of human to human transmission. Now the media is saying the world is threatened with a pandemic. As is true in a viral outbreaks, Doctors treat symptoms until a vaccine can be created to stop disease transmission. This sounds alot like the so-called Swine Flu epidemic which made Big Pharma billions for what was a localized outbreak.

Yemen - The death toll from a suspected Houthi rebel missile attack on Yemeni government forces has risen to at least 116, making it one of the bloodiest incidents in the country’s civil war, and threatening to derail the country’s fragile peace process. Ballistic missiles hit a mosque on Saturday at al-Estiqbal military camp in the central province of Ma’rib, where soldiers had gathered for evening prayers. Pictures and video from the scene showed a huge impact crater in the spot where the mosque had stood. A spokesperson for the Yemeni armed forces, Abdu Abdullah Magli, said on Monday that the death toll was likely to rise again

Washington - Hillary Clinton says "nobody likes" her former presidential rival Bernie Sanders, even as the Vermont senator remains entrenched among the front-runners in the Democratic race, with the Iowa caucus beginning in less than two weeks. In an interview with "The Hollywood Reporter" published Tuesday, Clinton was asked about a comment she makes in an upcoming documentary where she says Sanders was "in Congress for years" but, "Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done." Clinton replied that the criticism still holds and refused to say she'd endorse him this cycle if he wins the party's nomination,

Huawei's severance from Google has forced it to strike up a partnership with satellite navigation company TomTom, Reuters reports. Better known for making in-car navigation systems, TomTom will be building a maps app for Huawei phones since Huawei lost access to pre-installing Google Maps. The Trump administration placed Huawei on a trade blacklist called an "entity list" in May 2019, designating it a national security risk. The US claims Huawei acts as a conduit for Chinese government espionage, an allegation the company denies. The blacklisting means American companies have to seek government permission before dealing with Huawei.

Nearly a dozen U.S. troops were injured after two Iranian missile strikes on a pair of American-held bases in Iraq last week, the Pentagon reported in a reversal of what military officials and President Donald Trump initially said. The Defense Department said Thursday 11 U.S. service members were treated for concussion symptoms after Iran launched ballistic missiles at bases in al-Asad and Erbil, Iraq on Jan. 8. The strikes were retaliation for a U.S airstrike days earlier that killed a high-ranking Iranian military official. (Snip) He said they were taken to two hospitals in Germany and Kuwait and are expected to return to Iraq.

Washington - US health officials will start screening air travelers at three US airports for symptoms of a new Chinese virus outbreak that's been linked to at least two deaths.

Measuring screen time doesn't cut it anymore, according to Stanford researchers who announced the launch of the Human Screenome Project this week. The project, as described in the MIT Technology Review, will study digital screen time by taking screenshots of participants' devices at five-second intervals. "Mapping the human screenome can be a critical and cross-cutting part of solutions and theories about social challenges involving media – from fake news to smartphone addiction to social media and mental health," the authors wrote about the project, which they compare to mapping the human genome.

As Prince Harry prepares to be reunited with his wife and son in Canada, the country's biggest newspaper has told them they are not welcome to live there. In a scathing editorial, The Globe and Mail said: 'Canada is not a halfway house for anyone looking to get out of Britain while remaining a royal.' Canada's prime minister Justin Trudeau tweeted before Christmas that Harry, Meghan and eight-month-old Archie 'were among friends, and always welcome here'. But yesterday the nation's most influential newspaper condemned the couple's 'vague and evolving plan to move to Canada while remaining part of the Royal Family', adding: 'The Trudeau government's response should be simple and succinct: No.'

It's a stereotype, but it's true — Canada's winters are cold. And many of us stay toasty by burning fossil fuels such as natural gas in our furnaces or the boilers that feed our radiators. In an effort to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions and meet targets to reduce global warming, the U.K. has proposed banning fossil fuel-based heating in new homes by 2025. Cities in the states of California, Washington and Massachusetts are also trying to phase out natural gas.
