Figuring out how to fix them should be a high priority, but what institution can tackle this? Other nations have health care funding, far superior to USA, although USA health care is supposedly superior, for the 1% who can afford it. Do other nations treat their veterans as badly as in the USA?
2014 was the worst year for measles since 1994, when there were 958 cases reported to the CDC. Last year there were 644 cases of measles reported in 27 states. 380 cases in 2014 were in an Ohio religious community that doesn't usually vaccinate
People from all over the world travel to Disneyland. In theory, if they have been vaccinated against Measles, then they are not at risk of getting it, but there are anti-vaccination clusters all over the world, and some of those people also go to Disneyland, so Disneyland is a perfect place for infected kids to pass on diseases to other kids, who then go home, before the symptoms show up, and spread it to those communities. Should Disneyland refuse admission to people who cannot prove they have been vaccinated? Many schools do that.
Today there are 78 confirmed measles cases linked to Disneyland in California.
Public health officials recommend that children under 12 months and people who've never had a measles vaccination, stay away from the park while the disease event continues.
There was a declaration that the Disneyland outbreak was over, then more people got it, from there.
Problems appear to include:
· The growing anti-vaccination anti-science culture.
1. The unvaccinated are among us, non-obvious who, like an invisible threat.
2. Do the anti-science Republicans support the anti-vaccination sub-culture?
· Over time, diseases mutate to become resistant to medicines and vaccinations. But so far, this has not happened with measles.
· Nations have eradicated measles, but it was not eradicated from the world, so it is coming back to nations which have forgotten how serious it can be, so they are not taking effective measures to combat the risks.
· Medical profession seems to have forgotten to check children for risk of measles.
· At what age do children get vaccinated? Babies below that age are at risk. What are their chances of encountering the unvaccinated population? Does that age mean a high probability of children at risk located in playgrounds and amusement parks where young children are often expected to be located?
See graph of # measles by year in USA.
27 states have measles cases.
"The vast majority of our (CDC) cases every single year are unvaccinated people who choose not to be vaccinated. They are living in a family who are unvaccinated and they have friends who are unvaccinated. They might go to a school with a high proportion of people who are unvaccinated."
So, they chose that risk. What does it matter to the rest of the population if these people kill themselves off?
What is the rate of OTHER people catching it from them?
Do we, as a society, need to mandate that the unvaccinated wear some kind of yellow star on their clothes, so the rest of us know to keep our distance?
Expulsion? Prison Time?
Cyber Bullying is a serious problem, but why can’t a judge issue a warrant to get at data associated with the suspects? Has the 4th amendment been repealed?

If you want ideas what circles to put me in, you might start with these:
The first 2 decades of my life are no longer important ... I was immature, but lucky to stay out of major trouble.
There are lots of other interesting details about me, that will not get posted here.
While I am an avid reader book-aholic with tens of thousands of books in my personal collection, my rate of reading has diminished with other distractions like The Internet, and C-Span on TV.
I was in DC audience when Martin Luther King Jr gave his "I have a Dream" speech, as I began to identify & act on what was to become important in my life.
In the 1970's I designed some science fiction games. I may try to bring my time travel simulation to the modern social networks, some time in our future.
When 9/11 came, I shifted from heavy interest in how to improve computer security to "what can I do" to help national security, but have shifted back to cyber security interests now.
Currently I am extremely interested in Drones, and would love to have people tag me when posting anything about them.
I have had a career in excess of 50 years working for (mainly) family owned companies which used some IBM computer to run their business. Over the years I gravitated from 1620 and 1440, with 80 column punched cards and paper tape, with programs via wiring boards when a "bug" was a squashed insect, to a multitude of S/-variants and a few AS/-variants such as M36.
Late in 2009 I became semi-retired.
Since the Haiti Jan-12 quake, I have been consumed helping the helpers, via Linked In HEDR group (Haiti Earthquake Disaster Relief), a volunteer think tank. Y"all can locate most of my Haiti (and other) Disaster Research Notes:
Linked In (see box net files), Facebook, and Google Plus links in posts, Haiti Rewired, Rebuild Haiti Better, Haiti+ Disaster Recovery Research Prizm and Scribd
Here is reason for above research sharing:
The big international NGOs have
astronomical gaps between what they trying to do, and what they actually
are able to accomplish.
These gaps are tried to be filled by thousands of mom+pop NGOs, some of them grass roots in Haiti, some of them small groups from nations all over our world.
These are people who are good with their hands, or with medicine, or a host of other things, but they are not good at figuring out all they need to know to make a go of it. They have tons of questions.
Well I am an answer man, I find out for them, as a pro bono researcher.
But many of these groups are asking the same questions.
So I package the answers in my research notes, share with all the mom+pop groups, and potential new volunteers.
General Trouble-Shooting: I am using XP with Firefox 5.x. The system on end of VPN is AS/400 model 170 using BPCS 405 cd.
I do not do Mobile Chat nor IM. I do e-mail, blogs, essays, forums, comments, share research notes.

PS. I believe in the right of self-defense of people, irrespective of their religion culture gender gender-preference, etc. If you believe in genocide of Jews, or Gay people, or women, or any other group, and say so to me, I will probably end up blocking you.
