    CHIQUIMULA, Guatemala (Reuters) - More Honduran migrants tried to join a caravan of several thousand trekking through Guatemala on Wednesday, defying calls by authorities not to make the journey after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to cut off regional aid in reprisal. The caravan has been growing steadily since it left the violent Honduran city of San Pedro Sula on Saturday. The migrants hope to reach Mexico and then cross its northern border with the United States, to seek refuge from endemic violence and poverty in Central America. Several thousand people are now part of the caravan, according to a Reuters witness traveling with the group in Guatemala, where men women and children on foot and riding in trucks filled a road on their long journey to Mexico.

    Aid to Honduras? Obama praised their socialist coup in 2009 as "democracy". Now we're propping them up? >:(

    A new report says a Rochester, NY., hunter may have developed an ultra-rare brain infection after eating the brains of squirrels he killed, according LiveScience. The report was presented at the ID (infectious disease) week conference as an abstract called “Towards Earlier Diagnosis of Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs): A Case Series, Including One Associated with Squirrel Brain Consumption.” The report identified a 61-year-old male who was diagnosed with the rare brain infection called variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease after eating squirrel brains. He arrived at a hospital after suffering thinking problems and an impaired walk, according to the report. He died about five months after being diagnosed with the infection in 2015. The disease is similar to “mad cow disease,” which causes tiny holes to fill the brain until the tissue looks like a sponge (which is where ‘”spongiform” comes from), according to the National Institutes of Health. The infection is always fatal, and most who get the disease live around a year. It causes rapid degeneration of memory, thinking, vision and coordination before causing dementia and death, according to the NIH. It is part of a family of diseases caused by prions, which are infectious proteins that infiltrate the brain. Chronic wasting disease in deer is one example of a prion disease, as is fatal familial insomnia, a different brain infection affecting humans that removes the ability to sleep, eventually causing death. Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is extremely rare, with only four people ever confirmed to have the disease in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control. The non-variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is also rare, with only about 350 cases per year in the United States, according to the NIH. Most people develop the disease spontaneously, while a few inherit it. Some acquire it through other means, such as by ingesting infected tissue - which is what scientists suspect happened with the squirrel brains.

    And that's one reason GW Bush tasked the Navy with standardizing waste grease biodiesel fuel to burn up waste restaurant grease. Because of mad cow prions, the stuff couldn't be put back into animal feed.

    By 2010, the Navy became the world's biggest consumer of recycled restaurant grease, supplementing the diesel fuel supply.

    Nineteen people were killed and 54 were injured in a gun and bomb rampage at a school in Crimea yesterday. Vladislav Roslyakov, 18, stalked his college halls with a shotgun and let off homemade bombs before shooting 17 dead and then killing himself in the school library. Another pupil died in hospital hours later as twelve fight for their lives. Three people are in comas while others have been operated on for 'massive damage of limbs and internal organs,' Minister of Health of the Russian Federation Veronika Skvortsova told reporters. The shooter who is thought to have obtained shotguns and rifles with a hunting licence for which he passed a psychological assessment, also set off a homemade nail-bomb in the canteen which blew out the windows but did not kill anyone, according to reports. He then took his own life in the library. Initial reports from the scene at Kerch Polytechnic College, described the attack as a terror attack, before it was reclassified as mass murder. 'A shooting took place after the explosion. The gunman had a hunting gun,' Crimean official Igor Mikhailichenko said. 'This is not a terrorist act. It's a mass killing committed by one scumbag,' Crimean Prime Minister Sergei Aksyonov said on state television. The leader later declared three days of national mourning as the streets outside the college filled with tributes, candles and flowers, left by distraught members of the local community. Harrowing pictures from the scene have shown students being dragged onto bloodied stretchers with their clothes torn off from the bomb blast. So far, only 12 of the 19 dead have been identified, because of the extent of their wounds, it has been reported.
