Breast cancer

During 2014, it is estimated that more than 1,200 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 190 women will die from the disease. As National Breast Cancer Awareness month winds down, the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention reminds women that regular screening mammograms are critical in diagnosing and beginning treatment of the disease.

 
Not all breast cancer is accompanied by a lump that is discovered during a breast exam, which is why a regular mammogram is so important.  Women should enter into a personal discussion regarding their screening with their primary care physicians and decisions should be individualized.

 
A screening mammogram can detect breast cancer early, even before symptoms arise.  Women between ages 50 to 74 should have a screening mammogram every two years, while women age 40 to 49 should talk to their doctor about when and how often to have this screening.

The Maine CDC Breast and Cervical Health and Colorectal Cancer Control Programs can provide information about cancer screening tests and has some resources available for free cancer screenings.

Women must be age 40 or older and meet financial and other program criteria.  Interested women are encouraged to call 1-800-350-5180 or 1-207-287-8068; TTY users call Maine Relay 711.

5 Tips to Prevent Mold



In the rainy Pacific Northwest, buildings are prone to mold. Mold needs two things to grow – moisture and a good spot to grow on. Unfortunately, mold loves to grow on many common building materials and items in our homes. Since the conditions must be right for mold to grow, there are steps we can take to prevent those conditions.

1. Check gutters, downspouts, and drains.  Put on your rain gear and go outside during the next rain downpour.  Channel your inner preschooler and stomp in a puddle or two!  Okay, now your grown-up task is to check the gutters, downspouts, and drains to get a good idea of where the rain water is flowing.  The best answer is away from your building.

Clean, clear, reattach, or replace gutters and downspouts that aren’t working well. Clear any blocked drains. Please take precautions if you go up a ladder.  If you are renting, please check with your landlord or property manager.  While most property managers want to hear about water issues, they may not want their tenants up on a ladder or taking steps to fix a problem.


2. Observe your landscaping.  Do you need to make changes to the slope or drainage around the building so that water flows away and not toward the structure?  Consider contacting the Stormwater Stewards or installing a rain garden.  Depending where you live, you might even qualify for a rebate.  Prune tree branches or other plants away from the walls. This prevents water from being held against the siding, and allows air movement to help dry off the walls.  

Ready to come back indoors?  Even when we keep the rain outside, there is still moisture inside our homes from breathing, cooking, and bathing.  Here are some ways to keep mold out of your home. 

3. Fix leaks properly and quickly. If you have a leak, take care of it right away.  Wet items should be dried within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.

4. Increase ventilation. 

  • Give moisture a way out. Use the bathroom fan or open a window for 30 minutes after bathing.  If your home tends to have high humidity, keep that fan on as much as possible. Use your kitchen fan when cooking. Make sure your fans are vented to the outside and not into the attic.
  • Once a day, walk through your home opening a window in each room. Then go back around and close them.  Because warm air holds more moisture than cold air, that rainy 40˚ air can actually be drier than the heated air inside your home.  If you do this quickly, you don’t lose much heat and you still bring in fresh air, which can help lower humidity levels indoors.
  • Allow for air flow.  Keep furniture an inch or two away from the walls.  Open the curtains or blinds in each room daily.  Open closet doors and doors between rooms when possible.  Allow room for any moisture that has condensed on a surface to be dried out or carried away in the air.

5. Heat each room in your home to at least 60˚.  Moisture in the air will condense onto walls, furniture, or other surfaces as it cools, and may grow mold.  Closed off rooms and cold rooms tend to be where mold grows.

    Cybersecurity is an even bigger concern for service members

    by 673d Communications Squadron
    Cyber Security Team


    10/30/2014 - JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska -- Many people in Alaska enjoy fishing, but there are some that enjoy phishing Alaskans.

    Phishing - as in fishing for confidential information - refers to a scam which fraudulently obtains and uses an individual's personal or financial information.

    There are three general types of phishing.

    Phishing is an email that targets the general public.

    These emails often direct a user to respond with personal information, or direct the user to a fraudulent website which collects the information.

    Spear phishing is a phishing email that targets a specific group. One example of this would be an email sent to military members directing them to verify their personal information on a fake Veterans Administration website.

    Whaling is an email targeting high-profile people or those who are able to exert great influence over an organization.
    How can you tell if an email is phishing attempt?

    Some attempts are very cleverly disguised; however, there a few things you can watch for.

    Cybercriminals are not known for their grammar and spelling.

    Professional companies or organizations usually have a staff of copy editors, who will not allow a mass email with errors to go out to its users.

    If you notice mistakes in an email, it might be a scam.

    Links in an email are another tip.

    If you see a link in a suspicious email message, don't click on it. Rest your mouse (but don't click) on the link to see if the address matches the link that was typed in the message.

    Links might also lead you to .exe files. These kinds of file are known to spread malicious software.
    Threats are another common technique.

    Have you ever received a notification your account would be closed if you didn't respond to an email message?

    Cybercriminals often use threats that your security has been compromised, and you need to follow a link.

    Spoofing popular websites or companies is a common tactic.

    Scam artists use graphics in email that appear to be connected to legitimate websites - but actually take you to phony scam sites or legitimate-looking pop-up windows.

    Cybercriminals also use web addresses that resemble the names of well-known companies but are slightly altered.
    If you're get a 'threat' email and are concerned about an account, open a new browser and access the site with what you know is the correct address to check.

    How real is the threat?

    In 2009, more than 630,000 complaints of fraud were filed with the Federal Trade Commission totaling more than $1.7 billion.

    Recent headlines highlight phishing attacks against iCloud and Google Docs users, Verizon customers, and University of Nebraska email accounts.

    Recently, a group calling itself the "Electronic Army of ISIS" posted a video tutorial on how to create a PayPal phishing attack.
    As service members, phishing attacks pose an additional threat.

    While most phishing attacks target individual's finances, spear phishing can direct members to disclose operational information, thus posing an OPSEC risk.

    For example, a phishing email may direct you to a fake Central Command website and instruct you to input upcoming deployment information.

    Phishing is a real threat, both at home and at work.

    Stay vigilant, and if something seems "phishy," don't trust it.

    If the email is from someone (person or company) you know, call or send a separate email to verify the one you received is legitimate.

    At home, you can simply delete the email or report it to a company's fraud center.

    At work, delete the email and report it to your unit Information Assurance Officer.

    If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact your local Communications Squadron professional.

    Homophobic monk photographed in Cambridge





    The latest on our new folk devil comes from Cambridge News:
    Vile leaflets that say HIV represents God's judgment on homosexuality and transgender people "need counselling and exorcism" have sparked anger in Cambridge. 
    A "sinister monk" has been spotted around the Mill Road area in Cambridge this week delivering the pamphlets to homes, which also state paedophilia "claims its historic place in homosexualism". 
    The man, who posed for photographs when confronted by residents, is believed to be the same person who targeted homes in the city in May.
    One of those residents sent a photograph to Sarah Brown, who tweeted it.

    Fiona Woolf will resign, but I'm more worried about the Home Office

    As the Daily Telegraph reports this evening, Fiona Woolf, the head of the government’s child sex abuse inquiry, is facing renewed calls for her resignation. This is after it emerged that the Home Office played a key role in r-writing a personal letter setting out her suitability for the job.

    As the Telegraph says:
    The final version of Mrs Woolf’s letter was finally sent to Theresa May, the Home Secretary, on October 11, in which Mrs Woolf stated her personal contact with Lord Brittan would not affect her “independence and impartiality”. 
    But earlier drafts of her letter – seven in all – were ping-ponged between Mrs Woolf’s private office, the Home Office, lawyers to the sex abuse inquiry and counsel representing the Home Secretary. 
    Although the letter gave the impression of being a personal statement of impartiality by Mrs Woolf, the truth was very different. 
    The final draft had been altered beyond recognition when compared with the original version. 
    Furthermore, an unknown number of lawyers and civil servants had been allowed to have input into Mrs Woolf’s letter. 
    As pointed out by the chairman of the home affairs select committee, Keith Vaz MP, even the facts appeared to have been manipulated to place greater distance between Mrs Woolf and Lord Brittan.
    I can't see Fiona Woolf choosing to stay in this role, but I am more concerned about the behaviour of the Home Office.

    Because so many people are hoping for different things from this inquiry, it was always likely to prove a disappointment. But we should at least be able to expect it to be independent of the Home Office - one of the bodies it should be investigating.

    I would rather see Theresa May haled before the Grand Wazoo Keith Vaz and his committee than see Fiona Woolf there again. The Home Secretary has some explaining to do.

    Still, you have to laugh at the suggestion of the writer of the Telegraph report, David Barrett, that it "emerged after Lady Butler-Sloss’ appointment that her late brother, Sir Michael Havers, was attorney general in the 1980s".

    New Halloween e-cards from Get Ready: Nothing’s scarier than being unprepared

    Halloween is here, and for APHA’s Get Ready team that means two things: flu season and time to check your emergency supplies.

    • Get your flu shot! While there’s been a lot of talk about Ebola lately, we can’t forget about preparing for the flu. It kills thousands of Americans every year and poses a major risk for adults over 65, pregnant women and people with serious health conditions. Getting vaccinated, however, can help prevent the flu, so get your flu shot today!
    • Set your clocks, check your stocks: Daylight saving time ends on Sunday, Nov. 2. When you change your clocks, take some time to also check your emergency stockpile. Make sure food supplies haven’t expired and your emergency kit is complete. Do this twice a year when the time changes to help you and your family be prepared when it matters.

    We’ve created two new Halloween e-cards to share the importance of preparedness with friends and family. Spread some Halloween cheer and let them know what’s really spooky this time of year – not being prepared!



    Research Institute Targets Ebola, Other Infectious Diseases



    By Cheryl Pellerin
    DoD News, Defense Media Activity

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 30, 2014 – Ebola virus disease is a big focus among scientists at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, where the mission since 1969 has been to protect warfighters from biological threats and to investigate disease outbreaks and other public-health threats.

    But Ebola is just one of the lethal pathogens on U.S. lists of high-priority bioterrorism agents that pose a risk to national security, and USAMRIID scientists conduct research on many of them, whether the pathogens appear on the battlefield or in nature.

    At USAMRIID last week, DoD News interviewed Dr. Travis K. Warren, principal investigator in the Division of Molecular and Translational Sciences; Dr. John M. Dye Jr., Viral Immunology branch chief; and Army Maj. (Dr.) Matthew Chambers, chief of field studies in the Division of Medicine.

    All discussed the USAMRIID mission and their work beyond Ebola.

    “We are not the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Ebola, but we feel like it now. We are the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases,” Dye said. “And although we’re focused on Ebola, we have programs on all Category A and Category B [bioterrorism] agents, and we’re looking at [those pathogens] for therapeutics, vaccines and diagnostics, trying to get ahead of the curve for the next bug that comes out to bother us.”

    He added, “That's what our job is here -- to be prepared and to look ahead, and have the foresight to develop those assays ahead of time.”

    Medical countermeasures

    Chikungunya virus, dengue virus, Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever virus, Lassa virus, Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus, Eastern equine encephalitis virus and many others are among the viruses for which USAMRIID is creating medical countermeasures for warfighter and public-health protection. All of these pathogens can be classified as creating emerging or re-emerging infectious diseases in people, and most originate in animals and cross over to people.

    Nearly 75 percent of new emerging or re-emerging diseases that affect humans are zoonotic, meaning they spread from animals to people, according to the Centers for Disease Control National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases.

    Emerging infectious disease outbreaks, Chambers explained, tend to happen in countries with unstable governments, encroachments by people on forests and other wildlife habitats, increased commercialization and trade, and a huge increase in transportation in and out of the country.

    “Bam! An outbreak happens” when these factors collide, Chambers said, snapping his fingers for emphasis.

    Many of these circumstances, along with weak health care systems, contributed to the historic Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa, for which the World Health Organization reports more than 10,000 confirmed and suspected cases and nearly 5,000 deaths.

    “Viruses have a very high mutation rate, especially RNA viruses,” Dye said. “Therefore, their genetic material constantly changes, allowing them the possibility to mutate and [acquire the ability] to infect a new species.”

    RNA viruses have ribonucleic acid as their genetic material and so are less genetically stable than DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, viruses, such as smallpox, herpes and chickenpox. For example, Dye said, the constantly mutating flu viruses are RNA viruses.

    At USAMRIID, scientists are keeping their eyes on, among others, alphaviruses such as Chikungunya and Eastern equine encephalitis virus, and arenaviruses such as Lassa virus. All of these are RNA viruses, and all are zoonotic.

    Warren said Eastern equine encephalitis virus occurs on the U.S. East Coast, and CDC says most cases of Eastern equine encephalitis have been reported from Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts and New Jersey. People get this virus from mosquitos that have bitten infected horses.

    CDC says most people infected with the virus have no apparent illness, but for those who get encephalitis, or brain inflammation, Eastern equine encephalitis is one of the most severe mosquito-transmitted diseases in the United States. It has about a 33 percent mortality rate, and most who survive have brain damage. There’s no specific treatment for the disease.

    “There's a Western version, there's a South American version of it,” Warren said. “We haven't discovered them all yet.”

    Another alphavirus, Chikungunya virus, is transmitted to people by mosquitoes that picked up the virus by biting chimpanzees or other animals. The most common symptoms are fever and joint pain. The virus can be imported to new areas by infected travelers, and there is no vaccine to prevent it or medicine to treat it.

    Since its discovery in Tanganyika, Africa, in 1952, Chikungunya outbreaks have occurred in countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Indian and Pacific oceans. In late 2013, it was found for the first time in the Americas on islands in the Caribbean.

    From 2006 to 2013, an average of 28 people per year in the United States had positive tests for recent Chikungunya virus infection. All were travelers visiting or returning to the United States from affected areas, mostly in Asia, CDC said.

    Beginning in 2014, cases were identified in travelers returning from the Caribbean. As of Oct. 21, 1,482 Chikungunya virus disease cases have been reported from U.S. states to ArboNET, a national surveillance system for arthropod-borne viruses in the United States, according to CDC.

    Arenaviruses, also of interest to USAMRIID, often come from rodents and include Lassa virus, discovered in 1969 when two missionary nurses died in Nigeria. Its host is a West African rodent called the multimammate rat.

    In some areas of Sierra Leone and Liberia, 10 percent to 16 percent of people admitted to hospitals have Lassa fever, CDC said. Ribavirin, an antiviral drug, has been used successfully in Lassa fever patients.

    “Viruses basically usurp your own cellular machinery and take over your own cells, [turning them into] virus-producing factories,” Dye said. “It's brilliant, actually, because they don't have to have all the encumberments of other proteins.”

    Most viruses just need an opportunity to infect people, Warren added.

    “Once the Ebola outbreak has been controlled,” Dye said, “what's important for people to realize is that … we're still going to be here, working not just on filoviruses [such as Ebola], but all the other viruses.”

    “A year from now when the last Ebola patient … recovers in the hospital, the work goes on here,” Chambers added, “and thank goodness it does, because we were doing it for years before the Ebola outbreak happened, and we'll be doing it after the outbreak [is over], and for that reason, we'll be a little bit more prepared than we were this time.”

    Reserve wing ensures safe passage for GPS satellite launch

    by 920th Rescue Wing Public Affairs

    10/29/2014 - PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Reservists from the 920th Rescue Wing provided range-clearance and safety support for the successful launch of a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 1:21 p.m. today.

    The payload for today's launch included the Air Force's eighth Block IIF navigation satellite for the Global Positioning System.

    GPS IIF-8 is one of the next-generation satellites, incorporating various improvements to provide greater accuracy, increased signals, and enhanced performance for users.

    Hours before launch, two wing HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopters took off from Patrick AFB to patrol the Eastern Range, the 70-mile long by 10-mile wide swath of ocean extending east from the Cape that must be cleared of all air & marine traffic prior to every launch to ensure boaters are a safe distance from potentially falling rocket debris.

    The 920th performs combat search and rescue as its primary mission, which includes rescuing servicemembers trapped and or wounded behind enemy lines.

    Additionally, the wing is responsible for civil search and rescue, humanitarian relief and support of rocket launches. To date, the unit has saved more than 4,000 lives, both in peacetime and combat.

    For more information on the 920th Rescue Wing, follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
