Each season has its own particular work for the farmer, and he does his work without direction from or consultation with his neighbors or any one else. Each season has its own particular games for the young folks, and they take to them without any suggestion from outsiders, just as young ducks take to water, without any instructions from the mother bird. The seasons in the south temperate zone are just the opposite to those in the north. Some years ago I spent the months of July and August in New Zealand, and great was my surprise to find the boys down at Dunedin snowballing on the Fourth of July, while the sleigh-bells made music through the streets. In the following October, which is the spring month in Victoria, Australia, I found the youngsters of Melbourne playing marbles, just as the boys in New York had been doing when I left it the previous May.
The terrorist use of diseases as bioweapons has been one of the major security concerns in recent years, particularly after the anthrax letter attacks in the USA in 2001. This uncertain threat of intentional outbreaks of diseases exists side by side with the constantly changing very real threat from diseases, epidemics and pandemics as recently illustrated by the H1N1 influenza pandemic, SARS, and H5N1 bird influenza events.
This publication contains case studies on the public health planning for (un)usual disease outbreaks for 11 large and small countries with a focus on South Eastern Europe. In many countries, military entities traditionally play an important role in emergency response to disease outbreaks. In smaller countries, very little exists, however, in terms of specific biopreparedness efforts (in both the military and civilian area), which is at least partly due to a relatively low bioterrorism threat perception, and serious resource constraints.
The uncertainty associated with the bioterrorism threat makes public health preparedness planning for such events politically and financially very difficult. The similarity of responding to bioterrorism events and natural disease outbreaks from a public health point of view suggests the merit of looking at biopreparedness as a part of overall health emergency planning, not as a separate effort.

This book entitled "Health and Environmental Issues That Shake The World" by Dr Paul Ola Igboji shows the authors love for man and the planet. According to the author, when High Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) were discovered as sexually transmitted diseases that have no cure, the eyes of the world opened. Even before their discovery other ailments like Cancer, Sickle Cell Anaemia, Malaria, Typhoid, Cholera, Dysentary, Yellow Fever, Laser Fever, Tuberculosis, Asthma, Leprosy and a host of others have ravaged the world. Not quite long "Ebola" which is also incurable. Even though, some have remedies that tend to cure the disease or prolong life of patients like HIV but not AIDS, Cancer, Asthma, Leprosy; others like Ebola and Laser fever is yet to have cure. Others like Malaria, Cholera, Yellow Fever, Tuberculosis, Dysentary have been defeated through vaccination and drugs that are very successful. Other health and environmental issues that shake the world, according to this author include diabetes, influenza, small pox, Mumps, Measles and Rubella (MMR), migraines, cardiac, blood substitutes, smart pills, xenotransplantation, mental and emotional disorders, obesity, anorexia, genetic modification of plants, cloning of animal, gas poisoning, Viagra/drug abuse, endocrine disrupters, climate change, ozone layer depletion, global warming, rise in sea level, flooding/tsunami; desertification, drought; erosion, earthquake, landslides, tornado, hurricane. Human life is threatened on air, land and sea. Insecurity, fear, uncertainty, anxiety trail the blaze in life of human race. To crown it all, we have moved from era of cold war to that of global terrorism. The later has been very difficult as it cuts across regions, continents and countries and very difficult to control as terrorist are humans living and eating with one another innocently. Terrorists have no tomorrow in their dictionary. It is either today we perish or never and does not honour father, mother, wife, children, religion, state, leader, the led and any legislation or material on earth. Terrorists are greater than nuclear weapon as the latter's use can never be envisaged by any normal human being except in the case of Armageddon or nuclear accident. Moreover, the nuclear weapons being stored today may be black gold of future generations. Both the owner and user of nuclear weapon are bound to Hades or Hell Fire instantly once they are launched. In a world of uncertainty, panic, distrust, hate, religious divide, socio-cultural divide, political divides, economic divides, quest for supremacy, discrimination, apartheid, imperialism, borders, taboos, dogmas, molestations, abuse, betrayal, name it; we live on a keg of gunpowder ready to devour all. But, there remains a solution. NASA and other atheists now believe that God exist and have key to mysteries of the world. All the gods and satans we worship submit to only one true God that is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent, very fair, civil, descent, affordable, beneficial, adoring, kind, loving, charismatic, untouchable God that rules heaven and earth and has everything at his grip. He can reverse everything evil to good and restore world order, peace and togetherness. But, till he does, that many health and environmental issues; will continue to threaten the world. The book's contents are very delicious. It is a must read for everyone. Take a look!
