Did you know that as of May 18, 2013, there have been 202 cases of mumps in the US? Where is the media frenzy? The hysteria? The call from the Health Department and outrage over vaccination rates?

here is none. Because the vaccine is failing, the usual "push" is noticeably absent. Here are some direct quotes from University Health Services and/or Health Departments on the mumps outbreaks: (1) In Massachusetts, the students who got the mumps had been vaccinated. (2) In Virginia, the students who got the mumps had been vaccinated. (3) In Maryland, the students who got the mumps had been vaccinated. Do you see a trend here?

The CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) of August 24, 2012 was simply titled "Vaccination Coverage Among Children in Kindergarten - United States, 2011 - 12 School Year".

It is not known why the authors, who were all from the CDC, chose not to mention vaccine exemptions in the title when they knew that they would be discussing them in such great detail up to and including their percentage increase or decease in kindergartens nationwide. The main report consisted of six paragraphs and was followed by a detailed Editorial Note which also consisted of six paragraphs. The Editor's name was not revealed.

Not without some intelligent human assistance, say experts.

A few years ago, most Canadians would have laughed at the idea of terrorism on Canadian soil. But recent events have caused governments around the world to step up security efforts in public places, such as airports and border crossings. In Canada, the federal government has allocated $79 million for new equipment and supporting activities at Canadian airports.

This is an interesting question and one that took some digging to figure out. I'd never thought much about the difference even though I figured there was one.

Buying organic has become the mantra of the eco-conscious community and for good reason. Organic produce is basically grown naturally but it's labeled 'organic' not 'natural.' Basically the issue is oversight. The United States Agricultural Department (USDA) must certify a product that considers itself organic.

NEW YORK - Gloom and doom about jobs vanishing to India gripped the United States this week as three blue-blooded American corporate giants - JP Morgan Chase, Intel, and Microsoft - revealed plans to move thousands of jobs to the Indian subcontinent.

"India scored another victory in its battle to win jobs from the United States," observed The New York Post while reporting the back-to-back announcements by the three firms. "While such jobs aren't the most highly skilled in the investment banking food chain, they do represent a step up from the low-skilled jobs traditionally associated with outsourcing." JP Morgan plans to hire 4,500 workers in India. Intel plans to pour $1 billion into India. Microsoft will hire 3,000.

Organic tomatoes are smaller in size compared with conventionally grown tomatoes, but they are much better quality in terms of health, U.S. researchers say.

The study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, found tomatoes grown on organic farms were some 40 percent smaller than conventionally grown tomatoes, but contained significantly higher levels of vitamin C, sugar and lycopene - a substance linked to a lower risk of stroke and some types of cancers, particularly prostate cancer. Aurelice B. Oliveira, Eneas Gomes-Filho, Maria Raquel A. Miranda of the Universidade Federal do Ceara in Fortaleza, Brazil, and colleagues in Brazil and France, said until recently, the focus has been mainly on yield rather than on micronutritional quality of fresh plant products.

A Texas woman said police in Tennessee detained her because they thought the Ohio State University Buckeye logo on her car was a "marijuana sticker."

Bonnie Jonas-Boggioni, 65, of Plano, Texas, told The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch she and her 66-year-old husband were driving near Memphis Feb. 4 when police in a black sport utility vehicle pulled them over, and then a second black SUV pulled behind the first. Jonas-Boggioni said she hadn't been speeding so she wondered why police were pulling her over. "They were very serious," she said. "They had the body armor and the guns."
