- President & Mrs. Obama’s Statement on the passing of Prince
WASHINGTON, DC — “Today, the world lost a creative icon. Michelle and I join millions of fans from around the world in mourning the sudden death of Prince. Few artists have influenced the sound and trajectory of popular music more distinctly, or touched quite so many people with their talent. As one of the most gifted and prolific musicians of our time, Prince did it all. Funk. R&B. Rock and roll. He was a virtuoso instrumentalist, a brilliant bandleader, and an electrifying performer.
“A strong spirit transcends rules,” Prince once said — and nobody’s spirit was stronger, bolder, or more creative. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, his band, and all who loved him.”
- ZIKA VIRUS “Scarier than initially thought” says CDC Head
WASHINGTON, DC (Herald de Paris) — Today, in a White House briefing Dr Anne Schucaht, Principal Deputy Director of the Center for Disease Control said everything to do with the Zika virus is, “Scarier than initially thought.”
While Congress has all but ignored the White House administration’s formal request for $1.9 Billion in funding to control, prevent, and combat the Zika virus, the CDC and NHIAID have gone full speed ahead in its research to stop the virus.
President Obama last week announced he had re-appropriated a small portion of the resources for Ebola to fight Zika,but this amount falls a long way short of the $1.9 Billion needed.
Citing a close relationship with the pharmaceutical industry for disease vaccination and preventions, Dr. Fauci, Director of NIH/NIAID in the same press conference today was abrupt and to the point and said he needed the full $1.9 Billion. He said that if he didn’t get it he would have to draw funds from other worthy areas, such as malaria, and flu vaccinations.
