Who owns the Zika virus? this rather obscure article says that Zika is a commodity traded and sold , seems crazy but could it be true? Other articles are questioning whether the link to microcephaly in babies is even proven adequately…..Another article questions whether it was genetically modified mosquitoes released in 2012 that are the culprit and Yet there are still folks thinking that more genetic modification is the solution.…the WHO is ready to give the go-ahead to releasing GM mosquitoes- messing with the web of life to save ourselves , could this have unintended consequences? Desperation breeds lazy science and radical measures I suppose……

Russia Becomes 10th Foreign Gov’t to Launch Airstrikes in Syria
Russia has become the latest foreign government to launch airstrikes into Syria after carrying out a series of attacks Wednesday. The move has sparked concern from U.S. officials, who say the Russian attacks did not hit ISIL but instead hit the rebel groups fighting against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, including at least one group trained by the CIA. The United States and Russia have long disagreed about the strategy in Syria, with the U.S. calling for Assad’s departure and Russia backing the Syrian president. Russia became at least the 10th foreign government to launch airstrikes in Syria this year. Other countries include the United States, Britain, Canada, France, Australia, Turkey, Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan. Democracy Now Oct 1/15
