Could this be a Cure for Ebola?

I have been sent these links which make excellent reading and viewing. Information has been released, which states that ozone therapy may be the way to control Ebola. Doctor Rowen explains that oxygen is the source from which immune cells go on to kill bacteria. Let’s hope this proves to be the way forward.

Ebola Update 26

29 Nov.14.

• Teresa Romero, the Spanish nurse who caught Ebola in Spain and has survived, is now suing the government for £120,000 for putting down her dog, Excalibur. While she claims that the decision was taken without medical; advice, an animal rights has stated that the government did not commit a crime when euthanising the nurse’s pet dog. She herself is now being sued for defamation by her own doctor, for having not stated that the doctor had dismissed any chances of Ebola. The doctor has stated that this was not the case and that clinical records will prove this.

• There is currently another case of Ebola in Spain, being a person serving in Ebola who was accidentally injected by a needle which had just been used on a patient.

• Two children who arrived from West Africa into the UK, have been tested for Ebola in the Royal Victoria hospital in Newcastle. Both have tested negative. About one hundred people have so far been tested in the UK, all coming back negative.

Ebola Update 25

In the United States, an experimental vaccine for Ebola has shown to be safe and could soon be tested in West Africa. The vaccine is designed to encourage the production of anti-Ebola antibodies and those in the test group began to develop antibodies after four weeks. Those in the test group who were on a higher dose developed more antibodies and some developed new immune cells, referred to as T cells. While one of the people in the test group did develop a fever of 103 degrees, this disappeared after one day. It is said that Canada are also having some success with a possible vaccine.

Sections of Writing Magazines for Sale

I’ve been saving writing magazines for four years and have almost every copy. Their content has been amazing and they have taught me about short stories, novels and novellas, writing for magazines, building your profile on LinkedIn etc., how to be a travel writer, guest blogging, ghost writing, you name it etc..

For personal reasons, I now have all of this information on my computer and so I want to part with the actual paper copies. Their weight is quite something, so I can’t imagine anyone wanting to buy all of those forty + magazines from me. For my own benefit, I have listed information from each and every magazine, so that I can find at ease the information that I need (e.g. if I am writing a short story, I know which magazines to read for support). Therefore, for a small fee, if someone wants information on a particular topic (e.g. short stories), I am happy to cut these magazines up and provide the purchaser with those actual sheets alone. This will significantly reduce the weight and I will recoup a little bit of the money spent on the magazines.

If you’re interested, please contact me at and I will send you a list of information related to your area of interest, so that you may see what is available.


Ebola Update 23

19 Nov. 14.

A branch of the Asda supermarket in Hereford in the UK was sealed off, due to a person showing a symptom of Ebola having walked into a nearby clinic. The man, who has travelled in West Africa, has been tested for Ebola purely as a precaution and it is expected that the tests will come back negative.

An event of world leaders took place, at which Queen Elizabeth (UK) was present. In a discussion with Professor David Heymann, she spoke of the time being spent on Ebola when just as many people are dying of malaria and maybe controlling this disease was being overlooked.

In Brooklyn, USA, a woman who had returned from guinea three weeks ago, and was being monitored for Ebola, dropped down dead in a hairdressing salon. It is believed that she had a heart attack but a witness said that there was blood coming from her face, nose and mouth. Her remains are to be tested for Ebola out of ‘an abundance of caution’.
