Islamic State now world's richest terrorist group
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 21:02:57 -0400

An image taken from a propaganda video released in March by the Islamic State group's al-Furqan Media allegedly shows IS fighters in the Syrian City of HomsThe Islamic State has fast become one of the world's wealthiest terror groups, generating tens of millions of dollars a month from black market oil sales, ransoms and extortion, officials said. It earns $1 million a day alone by selling crude oil from fields captured when the group swept across Iraq and Syria earlier this year, said David Cohen, Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence. Because the group, also known as ISIL, has "amassed wealth at an unprecedented pace" from different sources than most terror groups, it presents a particular challenge to the US working to choke off money flows. IS is now "considered the world's wealthiest and most financially sophisticated terrorist organization," said Marwan Muasher, vice president at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

The World Heath Organization said after an emergency meeting on the deadly haemorrhagic fever that the situation in the worst-hit countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone "remains of great concern" as cases increase exponentially. It formally declared a global emergency in August, sparking outside criticism and internal soul-searching over claims that it was too slow, as the first case was in Guinea in December. WHO's deputy chief, Keiji Fukuda, said the international community had for months been ramping up the fight, with 600 international experts deployed in the embattled region over recent weeks.




Using drones to fight infectious diseases
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 10:57:09 -0400

How Drones Are Fighting Infectious DiseaseIn a remote area of Southeast Asia, drones are fighting a battle — not against terrorists or insurgents, but against infectious disease. In recent years, public health officials in the Malaysian state of Sabah have seen a rise in the number of cases of humans infected with this deadly parasite, which is spread, via mosquitos, from macaques to people. By mapping the communities where these cases occur, researchers hope to figure out why the parasite is spreading from monkeys to people with greater frequency, said Chris Drakeley, a professor of infection and immunity at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in the United Kingdom, and one of the researchers involved in the project. "What we're doing is creating a detailed map, which we can then superimpose or overlay with the human and the macaque movement," Drakeley told Live Science.
