Olympics Norovirus Cover Up? VIRUS Linked To Contaminated Water Blamed On BACTERIA

Olympics Norovirus Cover Up? VIRUS Linked To Contaminated Water Blamed On BACTERIA

Bacteria , Germ infection

The 194 staff members and volunteers sickened by the norovirus at the Winter Olympics in South Korea now know what caused their violent infection. Contaminated water used in food preparation is said to be the blame for horrible vomiting spells many have experienced.

According to the KCDC (Korea Centers for Disease Control), the norovirus has been found in 94 people linked to the Horeb Odaesan Youth Training Center, including those who ate food from the center but don’t live there, The Los Angeles Times reported.  Analysis of the center’s water discovered fecal coliform bacteria.  That seems infinitely strange, considering the norovirus is a virus, not a bacteria. They are different and it is worth noting that the mainstream media doesn’t seem to notice or may be covering up something up.

Fecal coliform by themselves are usually not pathogenic; they are indicator organisms, which means they may indicate the presence of other pathogenic bacteria. Pathogens are typically present in such small amounts it is impractical monitor them directly.

North Korea WARNING: Kim Jong-un to test nukes immediately after Olympics

A relaxation of tensions on the Korean Peninsula due to the Pyeongchang Games renewed hopes for a diplomatic solution to the crisis and escalating war of worlds between Pyongyang and the US.

But Robert A. Manning, resident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, believes this is just a temporary thaw.

He said: “Unfortunately, after the Olympics and Paralympics are over in late March, Pyongyang is likely to test another intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and in April and the US and South Korea will conduct scheduled military exercises necessary for the vitality of the US-South Korea alliance.

“And we will be back in crisis mode.”

The expert is concerned the US President would retaliate to try and “teach Kim a lesson”, and act upon his fiery rhetoric.

Despite President Moon’s Efforts to Encourage Diplomacy, Childish Anti-Diplomatic Behavior of Vice President Pence Undermines Opportunity for Peace Diplomacy

President Moon said at a carefully planned dinner to honor Kim Yong Nam, the North Korean president’s sister and Vice President Mike Pence that he hoped the Winter Olympics would be remembered as the “day peace began.” But, Vice President Mike Pence did his best to make sure that did not happen. He missed the opportunity to further peace on the Olympic peninsula created by Moon. The historic opening created by North and South Korea at the Olympics was an opportunity but Pence handled the situation like a childish teenager.

At a dinner dinner reception where President Moon sought an opportunity for dialogue between the US and North Korea, Pence went through great lengths to avoid talking to the North Koreans. According to Reuters, when Pence arrived late to the reception he told Moon he planned (more…)

Editor’s Note: In our latest Facebook Live interview (please like our Facebook page to see more of these events) Harry Kazianis, Director of Defense studies at the Center for the National Interest, and Christopher Preble, vice president for defense and foreign-policy studies at the Cato Institute, discuss the geopolitical outlook for East Asia.

Chris Preble recently wrote about the lack of a U.S. grand strategy. A portion of the article can be found below:

“The United States needs a new set of ideas and principles to justify its worthwhile international commitments, and curtail ineffective obligations where necessary,” argue Jeremi Suri and Benjamin Valentino, in the introduction to their edited volume Sustainable Security: Rethinking American National Security.

“Balancing our means and ends requires a deep reevaluation of U.S. strategy, as the choices made today will shape the direction of U.S. security policy for decades to come.”

Though rarely spelled out in such stark terms, this question would appear to be at the core of America’s grand strategy debate—if (more…)

2016 Olympics of Hypocrisy: US star athletes under investigation for use of performance-enhancing ‘supplements’

2016 Olympics of Hypocrisy: US star athletes under investigation for use of performance-enhancing ‘supplements’

Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps will always be known for dominating at this year’s 2016 Olympics. A combined 9 gold medals and 2 silver, they will most certainly go down in history as two of the best.

However, their success has become clouded with suspicion, as rumors of potential supplement use have leaked out… We sought an interview with Katie herself to find out more about the situation.

Speaking exclusively with us here at ESPN, Katie had this to say about the investigation, “I’ve poured my heart and soul into this sport. I would never do anything to jeopardize my career. But there is NO ONE I look up to more than Michael. And when he turned me onto this stuff I trusted him. I don’t think I should be ashamed. It’s legal and natural… What else do you guys want from me?”
