A bird was tested positive of the West Nile virus in Santa Cruz County, California. Public health officials said that this is the first confirmed case of the West Nile virus in the county this year. The dead bird was found in the Upper Westside of Santa Cruz, near Nobel Drive, which means that virus-infected mosquitoes are most likely living around the area. The Santa Cruz' Mosquito and Vector Control District has sent their technicians to the area to look for any infected mosquitoes or breeding ground.
So far, there have been no reported human cases of the West Nile virus in the state this year. Health officials advised the public to report dead birds or squirrels that may have possibly acquired the virus in the area by contacting (877)968-2473 or visiting westnile.ca.gov.
The WNV (West Nile Virus) is a virus that humans can get through mosquitoes. Transmission of the virus will lead to an infection in which humans can either have few or even no symptoms at all. Some symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, muscle pain, nausea, loss of appetite, vomiting and rashes. The infection usually surfaces between 2 to 15 days. The virus can also cause neurological symptoms. more >>
Pro-life activist David Daleiden, the man behind last year's controversial undercover Planned Parenthood videos, appeared in a San Francisco federal court Wednesday to argue for a motion to throw out Planned Parenthood's lawsuit against him and the organization he founded.
In January, the nation's largest abortion provider filed a federal lawsuit against the Center for Medical Progress and its founder, Daleiden, claiming that their series of undercover sting videos that purported to show Planned Parenthood officials' willingness to break federal and state laws regulating fetal body part procurement and reimbursement was a fraudulent attempt to smear the company.
In response, Daleiden's legal team filed a motion to dismiss the case on the grounds that the Planned Parenthood lawsuit was nothing more than a SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) lawsuit that attempts to silence free speech. more >>
Miracles don't happen when a situation is comfortable, says Saddleback Church senior pastor and best-selling author Rick Warren.
In his "Daily Hope" devotional published Tuesday, Warren explained "the path to a miracle often goes through uncomfortable territory."
"Miracles never happen in your comfort zone, when everything's great and convenient. You don't need a miracle when everything is settled in your life," said Warren. "You only need a miracle when you're on the edge, when you're scared to death, when you're insecure, when you can get hit at any angle." more >>
