      Globalization has brought global health right to our door-step. In a world where everything from global trade to international travel is on the rise, the infectious disease threats of one region of the world can easily become public health threats present in your own backyard. While it is often the unfamiliar and rare diseases that are thrown into the public spotlight as global health security threats, infectious diseases of all types can be a danger to public health—even a virus that has not been present in the United States for over 30 years, like polio “Scenarios for polio…

    Dead Island 2 brings zombies to California (where the zombies are all presumably buff and have perfect teeth). Available on Xbox One and PS4, it’s not going to be available until the end of 2015. This is a huge shame because its precursor, Dead Island 1 was a huge success. Beautifully rendered and difficult enough […] The post Dead Island 2 – Game Review appeared first on zweapons.

  • Clarity on Cholesterol Management and Why We Need It

    By Jennifer Robinson, MD, MPH In the winter of 2013, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association released new guidelines for treating blood cholesterol. These new guidelines, which I helped draft, moved away from focusing on a patient’s blood cholesterol level and, instead, put a focus on a patient’s risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) to decide who would benefit from drug treatment. Heart attacks and strokes are common outcomes of ASCVD caused by cholesterol build-up in the arteries.  Its risk factors include a person’s age, sex, race,…

    Are you and your family prepared to face a disaster? What about your neighborhood?  Do you know your neighbors’ emergency plan or how you can help each other during an emergency?

So what can you do? You don’t have to be an expert in emergency…
  • The Great Thaw: looking back on Boston’s record-breaking winter

    Four winter storms, more than 108 inches of snow, and one record-breaking season later, Boston is ready for spring! Despite the promise of warmer temperatures, the slowly melting snow is a reminder of the emergency response and community resilience that Boston has demonstrated these past few months. Key components of Boston’s emergency response to these winter storms were well-established partnerships and strong community resilience. The Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) is one of the leaders in establishing these relationships. The BPHC plays a crucial role in the city’s public…
  • An Unsuspected Treat Contaminated with Listeria. How about them Caramel Apples?

    By  Mandip Kaur and Brendan Jackson Oh, how sweet it is to enjoy a caramel apple when autumn sweeps in! Maybe you like yours topped with nuts? Sprinkles? How about chocolate? But who knew that this past fall, certain caramel apples would be contaminated with the dangerous Listeria monocytogenes bacteria (here, Listeria for short), and cause illnesses across the nation? This was quite a curveball for public health investigators: listeriosis (the disease caused by Listeria) outbreaks are often traced to soft cheeses and sometimes to produce, but no one had ever reported an outbreak linked to…

    Dying Light, from Techland and Warner Brothers is a mature content game for zombie fans. That means it’s sexy! Available at around $50, it’s worth every cent. The gameplay is fluid and the graphics exemplary – so much so that just moving through the landscape gives you that eerie feeling that only a truly atmospheric […] The post Dying Light – Reviewed appeared first on zweapons.

    Good job! You’ve managed to grasp the concept that it might be better to move away from the populated zones when the zombie apocalypse hits. Did you come up with that all by yourself? Well, anyway, camping is indeed a great idea because you can put some distance between you and the zombie hordes coming […] The post An Idiot’s Guide to Camping During the Zombie Apocalypse appeared first on zweapons.

    It’s back – and this time it’s… it’s marginally better. Good news for those who were disappointed by Left 4 Dead; the sequel has included a far better selection of zombie killing weapons! The Uzi and shotgun is still there – but using them is annoying. Just why it’s necessary to have your game character […] The post Left 4 Dead 2 Review appeared first on zweapons.
