The U.S. Department of Agriculture will begin collecting genetic sequences of swine flu found on pig farms in the future, says Nancy Cox director of the influenza division at the CDC.  The News Observer http://www.newsobserver.com/news/story/1510217.html  is reporting, and “the new H1N1 virus contains strains from past swine viruses.  Just yesterday, Canadian scientists completed the full genetic sequencing of the H1N1 swine flu virus, http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20090506/wl_canada_afp/healthflucanadascience_20090506170314  and reports, ” lab work  appears to suggest that there’s nothing at the genetic level that differentiates this virus that we’ve got from Mexico and those from Nova Scotia and Ontario.  Whew, there doesn’t appear to be a genetic drift, just bad luck.   Nothing to worry about; just the first ever mutation of pig, bird, and human virus.

Scientists have been busy mapping the human genome, where, “A genetic linkage map shows the relative locations of specific DNA markers along the chromosome. Any inherited physical or molecular characteristic that differs among individuals and is easily detectable in the laboratory is a potential genetic marker. http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/publicat/primer/prim2.html  Humans and animals are a reassortment of our parents but susceptible to variations internally and environmentally.  Birth defects, autism, cancers, food supplies, personal choice, and access to heath care all influence mortality. Throw in the possibility of man made disease or germ warfare and population control comes to mind.

The International HapMap Project http://www.hapmap.org/  studies  human genetic variation and the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements, or ENCODE  http://www.genome.gov/10005107  project.  Note that ENCODE is just one letter away from ENDCODE.  For all intents and purposes, the Human Genome project is complete, but could sciences manipulation of genes and genetic markers result in the END of mankind, civilization as we know it?   Will your government now begin to automatically collect human DNA at birth for genetic sequencing?  Do they already?  Is ENCODE really ENDGAME?

A Russian Foreign Ministry report states that President Obama has secretly ordered the immediate opening of Americas vast gulag of concentration camps, built since 2001 and estimated able to hold a further 1 million of their citizens, which is aside from the 2.3 million currently imprisoned in what has become the Worlds largest Prison Nation in all of history, in what they are calling Project ENDGAME. http://www.fourwinds10.com/siterun_data/government/new_world_order/news.php?q=1235601651

Diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of “all removable aliens” and “potential terrorists.”  “The federal government has assumed the authority to institute martial law, arrest a wide swath of dissidents (citizen and non citizen alike), and detain people without legal or constitutional recourse in the event of “an emergency influx of immigrants in the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs.” http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/02/04/ED5OUPQJ7.DTL  Would millions of infected people, people who refused vaccinations, people with unacceptable genetic markers be targeted?

Harvard Medical School’s Institutional is recruiting volunteers for it’s Personal Genome Project that will hold cell lines for 50 years by the Coriell Institute’s Human Genetic Cell Repository. http://www.genomeweb.com/sequencing/personal-genome-project-enroll-100-more-participants-summer-seeks-raise-15m-dona Participants’ DNA will be analyzed, but have not revealed how this will be done, or what sequencing technology the project anticipates using. Would they mutate your DNA, mix it with a dog and see what happens like in the movie Shaggy Dog,where experiments turn the dad into a dog?  They say everyone has a twin, were you cloned like the Dolly the sheep?  Could you be recreated in the lab after death? 

What about the legal, ethical and social implications in humans? (ELSI)

A number of federal and state laws prohibit insurance discrimination to various degrees. {ROFL} The Health Insurance Portability Protection Act (HIPAA)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HIPAA  recognizes genetic information as Protected Health Information (PHI) and specifies protection for the confidentiality of PHI.  The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act has a similar purpose.  Government health reform is embracing national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health insurance plans, and employers.  At the same time Rockefeller is warning of national security threats to the nation’s Internet.  Enter, restricted Internet II.  http://www.internet2.edu/network/ As noted by Pew Research, “People will wittingly and unwittingly disclose more about themselves, gaining some benefits in the process even as they lose some privacy.” http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2006/The-Future-of-the-Internet-II.aspx

President Obama has set aside “$4.7-billion that will be doled out under a new grant program administered by a small Commerce Department agency called the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. The project as “the first step in realizing President Obama’s vision of bringing the benefits of broadband technology to all Americans.” http://chronicle.com/free/2009/04/16710n.htm Anyone know where you can not get Internet access in America now?

The fear is justified. As the author of both The Coming Plague and Betrayal of Trust: The Collapse of Global Public Health, she sees great dangers lurking; in the desire of some groups to turn disease into a weapon, and the failure of others to prepare themselves for that threat.  http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2003/04/0409_030409_lauriegarrett.html  SARS, Ebola, AIDS, Flu, Small Pox, Anthrax, - all grave dangers, contagious.  Are infected persons to be rounded up, what of their civil rights? Privacy out the door?  

“Maybe the CDC should do an epidemiology study and see where all these new emerging diseases are clustering around. They might be surprised to find them popping up around biotechnology centers”, notes http://watchdogonscience.blogspot.com/2009/04/new-swine-influenza-hin1-infects-humans.html. Baxter Pharmaceutical, chosen by The World Health Organization to lead the way to a vaccine cure has a bio lab, just 50 miles from the flu’s outbreak.  Coincidence? http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/05/05/baxter-pharmaceutical-plant-in-mexico-ground-zero-for-flu-outbreak/ 

India has all but accused America of engineering the flu, accusing  the U.S. government of seeking a monopoly on controlling the virus for two reasons. Firstly to be able to dominate the vaccine market and make vast profits from providing the cure and secondly to potentially develop the strain into a potent biological weapon, accusing the Australian government of stealing Indonesia’s strain of H5N1 to make bird flu vaccines. http://www.abc.net.au/am/content/2008/s2167325.htm  The article is dates Wednesday, 20 February 2009, nearly a month before anyone began paying attention to this outbreak.

“It would seem that George Orwell might have been more prophetic than we perhaps gave him credit for”, says http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/internet-censorship-us-or-just-law-enforcement.

The most reliable Google Maps on Swine Flu is being put assembled by Henry Niman, founder Recombinomics, who has been tracing the evolution of influenza for the last five years  http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&t=p&msa=0&msid=106484775090296685271.0004681a37b713f6b5950&ll=47.517201,-109.335937&spn=101.871352,255.585938&z=2
