..Demam Babi...or Swine flu

...............ada demam jugak kah?

Reproducing the WHO FAQ (pdf) here:

What is swine influenza?
Swine influenza, or “swine flu”, is a highly contagious acute respiratory disease of pigs, caused by one of several swine influenza A viruses. Morbidity tends to be high and mortality low (1-4%). The virus is spread among pigs by aerosols, direct and indirect contact, and asymptomatic carrier pigs. Outbreaks in pigs occur year round, with an increased incidence in the fall and winter in temperate zones. Many countries routinely vaccinate swine populations against swine influenza.
Swine influenza viruses are most commonly of the H1N1 subtype, but other subtypes are also circulating in pigs (e.g., H1N2, H3N1, H3N2). Pigs can also be infected with avian influenza viruses and human seasonal influenza viruses as well as swine influenza viruses.
The H3N2 swine virus was thought to have been originally introduced into pigs byhumans. Sometimes pigs can be infected with more than one virus type at a time, which can allow the genes from these viruses to mix. This can result in an influenza virus containing genes from a number of sources, called a “reassortant” virus. Although swine influenza viruses are normally species specific and only infect pigs, they do sometimes cross the species barrier to cause disease in humans.

What are the implications for human health?
Outbreaks and sporadic human infection with swine influenza have been occasionally reported. Generally clinical symptoms are similar to seasonal influenza but reported clinical presentation ranges broadly from asymptomatic infection to severe pneumonia resulting in death.
Since typical clinical presentation of swine influenza infection in humans resembles seasonal influenza and other acute upper respiratory tract infections, most of the cases have been detected by chance through seasonal influenza surveillance. Mild or asymptomatic cases may have escaped from recognition; therefore the true extent of this disease among humans is unknown.

Where have human cases occurred?
Since the implementation of IHR(2005) in 2007, WHO has been notified of swine influenza cases from the United States and Spain.

How do people become infected?
People usually get swine influenza from infected pigs, however, some human cases lack contact history with pigs or environments where pigs have been located. Human-to-human transmission has occurred in some instances but was limited to close contacts and closed groups of people.

Is it safe to eat pork and pork products?
Yes. Swine influenza has not been shown to be transmissible to people through eating properly handled and prepared pork (pig meat) or other products derived from pigs. The swine influenza virus is killed by cooking temperatures of 160;F/70;C, corresponding to the general guidance for the preparation of pork and other meat.

Which countries have been affected by outbreaks in pigs?
Swine influenza is not notifiable to international animal health authorities (OIE,, therefore its international distribution in animals is not well known. The disease is considered endemic in the United States. Outbreaks in pigs are also known to have occurred in North America, South America, Europe (including the UK, Sweden, and Italy), Africa (Kenya), and in parts of eastern Asia including China and Japan.

What about the pandemic risk?
It is likely that most of people, especially those who do not have regular contact with pigs, do not have immunity to swine influenza viruses that can prevent the virus infection. If a swine virus establishes efficient human-to human transmission, it can cause an influenza pandemic. The impact of a pandemic caused by such a virus is difficult to predict: it depends on virulence of the virus, existing immunity among people, cross protection by antibodies acquired from seasonal influenza infection and host factors.

Is there a human vaccine to protect from swine influenza?
There are no vaccines that contain the current swine influenza virus causing illness in humans. It is not known whether current human seasonal influenza vaccines can provide any protection. Influenza viruses change very quickly. It is important to develop a vaccine against the currently circulating virus strain for it to provide maximum protection to the vaccinated people. This is why WHO needs access to as many viruses as possible in order to select the most appropriate candidate vaccine virus.

What drugs are available for treatment?
There are two classes of such medicines, 1) adamantanes (amantadine and remantadine), and 2) inhibitors of influenza neuraminidase (oseltamivir and zanamivir).
Most of the previously reported swine influenza cases recovered fully from the disease without requiring medical attention and without antiviral medicines. Some influenza viruses develop resistance to the antiviral medicines, limiting the effectiveness of treatment. The viruses obtained from the recent human cases with swine influenza in the United States are sensitive to oselatmivir and zanamivir but resistant to amantadine and remantadine.
Information is insufficient to make recommendation on the use of the antivirals in treatment of swine influenza virus infection. Clinicians have to make decisions based on the clinical and epidemiological assessment and harms and benefit of the treatment of the patient For the ongoing outbreak of the swine influenza infection in the United States and Mexico, the national and the local authorities are recommending to use oseltamivir or zanamivir for treatment of the disease based on the virus’s susceptibility profile.

What should I do if I am in regular contact with pigs?
Even though there is no clear indication that the current human cases with swine influenza infection are related to recent or ongoing influenza-like disease events in pigs, it would be advisable to minimize contact with sick pigs and report such animals to relevant animal health authorities.
Most people are infected through prolonged, close contact with infected pigs. Good hygiene practices are essential in all contact with animals and are especially important during slaughter and post-slaughter handling to prevent exposure to disease agents. Sick animals or animals that died from disease should not be undergoing slaughtering procedures. Follow further advice from relevant national authorities.
Swine influenza has not been shown to be transmissible to people through eating properly
handled and prepared pork (pig meat) or other products derived from pigs. The swine influenza virus is killed by cooking temperatures of 160oF/70oC corresponding to the general guidance for the preparation of pork and other meat.

How can I protect myself from getting swine influenza from infected people?
In the past, human infection with swine influenza was generally mild but is known to have caused severe illness such as pneumonia For the current outbreaks in the United States and Mexico however, the clinical pictures have been different. None of the confirmed cases in the United States have had the severe form of the disease and the patients recovered from illness without requiring medical care. In Mexico, some patients reportedly had the severe form of the disease.

To protect yourself, practice general preventive measures for influenza:

• Avoid close contact with people who appear unwell and who have fever and cough.
• Wash your hands with soap and water frequently and thoroughly.
• Practice good health habits including adequate sleep, eating nutritious food, and keeping physically active.

If there is an ill person at home:
• Try to provide the ill person a separate section in the house. If this is not possible, keep the patient at least 1 meter in distance from others.
• Cover mouth and nose when caring for the ill person. Masks can be bought commercially or made using the readily available materials as long as they are disposed of or cleaned properly.
• Wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly after each contact with the ill person.
• Try to improve the air flow in the area where the ill person stays. Use doors and windows to take advantage of breezes.
• Keep the environment clean with readily available household cleaning agents.

If you are living in a country where swine influenza has caused disease in humans, follow additional advice from national and local health authorities.

..gaya bahasa..famous lines...

Soalan nya ...can be anything? ha ha

Bila orang buka mulut….Famous Lines & Lies

Language,bahasa dan cara seseorang itu bercakap …..can be revealing when people don't intend for it to be.

Let's look at some opening lines, they betray the speaker almost immediately.

"Kita org hanya kawan je”…sememangnya ngak begitu sih…tak kan kawan je kot kalau dah tak boleh berenggang dgn henfon…

“Sumpah Yang..abang tak buat lagi “..kalau dah terdesak bersumpah pun berani…kalau dia ada peluang..more likely will do it again.

“Trust me ... " – Ini permulaan seseorang itu nak berbohong… You can bet that whatever the person will say following those two words cannot be trusted.

"I am not a racist but,I am not against Malays or against Iban or Chinese.. " - You can be certain that what the speaker say next will be racist,Dial ah seorang hipokrit yg paling rasis…..

"I hear what you are saying ... " - The speaker is not hearing what you have said but is dying to say something else,the speaker’s mind is somewhere else…

"No offence .... " – Dia ni memang nak menyakitkan hati pendengar.. You can bet your bottom dollar that what the speaker says next will offend.

"Correct me if I am wrong..." - ..Orang macam ni sebenarnya pandai merekacipta drama…..Usually means the speaker is damn sure they are right and you are wrong.

"Hypothetically speaking... " - Usually means the speaker is going to paint a scenario which will make you look bad or put you on a spot of bother.Dia akan buat mcm org bodoh..dgn teori rekaannya....

tasik kota samarahan....

Life isn't about keeping score.

It's not about how many friends you have.

Or how many people call you.

Or how accepted or unaccepted you are.

Not about if you have plans this weekend.

Or if you're alone.

It isn't about who your family is or how much money they have.

Or what kind of car you drive.

Or where you're sent to school.

It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are.

Or what clothes you wear, what shoes you have on, or what kind of music you listen to.

It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, brown, or green.

Or if your skin is too light or too dark.

But life is about who you love and who you hurt

It's about who. you make happy or unhappy purposefully.

It's about keeping or betraying trust.

It's about friendship, used as sanctity, or as a weapon.

It's about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening.

About starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip.

It's about what judgments you pass and why. And who your judgments are spread to...

But most of all, it's about using your life to touch or poison other people's hearts in such a way that could never occurred alone. Only you choose the way these hearts are affected and those choices are what life is all about.

....teman tapi mesra...

Emotional Affair?

alasan dari kawan-kawan...

Mr K.." we are just a good friend..teman tapi mesra..and i swear kita orang tak ada lebih-lebih..atau melepasi batas...just a simple kiss tu ada"

Mr J..."kita kawan "mesra"..ringan-ringan je..make love tak ade lagi..tapi percakapan,sms,email adalah...may be u can call it "on line sex" or "Sex di alam Maya"

itu sebahagian daripada contoh-contoh emotional affair..

The signs of an emotional affair may be more subtle than those of a sexual affair, but they're just as unmistakable.

"An emotional affair happens when you put the bulk of your emotions into the hands of somebody outside of your marriage," explains psychotherapist M. Gary Neuman,

Your innermost thoughts, funny jokes, and interesting personal experiences are saved up and spilled to the other woman /guy instead of your spouse.
And even if you never so much as touch her/him, this emotional attachment has just as much potential as a sexual fling to damage your marriage...

Once you're drawn into an emotional affair, it can feel so good that you don't want to stop.

In fact, not having sex may make the connection seem all the more powerful. It feels genuine, romantic even, and isn't easy to let go of because it's so "safe" — or so it appears.
But inevitably, you start unfairly comparing your wife/husband to this other woman/man,

Even after you've recognized your emotional affair and the damage it's causing your marriage, slamming on the brakes is easier said than done.

"Many emotional affairs turn almost obsessive simply because you never had sex to consummate your fantasies."

82% of affairs happen with someone who was at first "just a friend," according to noted infidelity researcher Shirley P. Glass.

Are You in an Emotional Affair?

• Pay extra attention to how you look before you see her/him.

• Think crush-like thoughts like, She/He'd love this song! she/he like this foods etc...

• Tell her/him more details about your day than you do your partner.

• No longer feel comfortable telling your wife/husband about this person and begin to cover up your relationship.

• Experience increasing sexual tension; you admit your attraction to her/him but also insist to yourself that you would never act on it.

• Find yourself feeling vulnerable and turn to the other woman/man for support rather than to your wife/husband or a trusted relative or friend.

• Accelerate the level of intimacy through sexual or suggestive talk over e-mail or the phone.

• Put yourself in a situation where the two of you could be alone.

• Stay honest with your wife/husband. Share with him all your hopes, triumphs, and failures — as well as your attractions and temptations, which will help keep you from acting on them.

• Make time for just the two of you on a regular basis — away from the kids, your friends, and family.

• Surround yourself with happily married friends who don't believe in fooling around. Having positive, emotionally connected role models will help you stay on track.
