INCELLs Safe Oral Vaccine Will Potentially Eliminate Smallpox as a Weapon of Mass Destruction SAN ANTONIO- (Dec. 12, 2002)- INCELL Corporation, a San Antonio-based biotechnology company (www.incell.com), is developing an innovative smallpox vaccine designed to be safe and effective, painless, available to everyone, and delivered orally, not with needles. INCELLs vaccine will provide additional immune protection while eliminating side effects of the current stockpiled vaccine and immunization methods.
Major General Harold Timboe, recently retired commander of Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Vice President for Administration at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, says, INCELLs vaccine has the potential to revolutionize smallpox vaccination and UTHSCSA is pleased to be a collaborator on this cutting edge research and development. Unvaccinated and previously vaccinated individuals, including those ineligible for the stockpiled vaccine, may receive INCELLs oral vaccine to provide maximum protection of the entire immune system. This includes the lining of the nose and mouth, the first smallpox infection sites. Previously, oral vaccination was not an option because old vaccine virus strains could grow in humans, causing painful sores in the mouth and gastrointestinal tract.
The new vaccine will eliminate the use of needles or syringes, specialized training in needle-prick vaccine delivery, and vaccine-associated side effects such as rashes, vpustules, red swollen arms, and flu-like symptoms. To eliminate those side effects and make a vaccine available to everyone, the INCELL vaccine will combine oral delivery and modern manufacturing with a safe vaccine strain that cannot grow in humans. INCELL will replace currently used eighteenth century vaccination methods where calves are infected, and virus is drained from calf lymph fluid, to make a vaccine that is injected into humans where it grows in pustules that ooze infectious virus.
Chief Science Officer of INCELL, Dr. Mary Pat Moyer, says, We have been working on this safer vaccine for almost a year because current threats of bioterrorism have raised real concerns about the devastation that could result from a smallpox outbreak. We intend to begin clinical trials soon, as we believe that everyone should have the option to be safely vaccinated and that widespread use of this vaccine will remove the threat of smallpox as a weapon of mass destruction.

The First Puncture-Resistant Orthotic Insoles, Designed To Reduce Injuries And Provide Comfort To Construction Workers The first puncture-resistant orthotic insole, designed to reduce injuries and provide comfort to construction workers is being sold now by Rhino Tuff, Inc.
Puncture-resistant, supportive insoles are now available for construction workers with the introduction of the Puncture-Resistant Orthotic Insole from Rhino Tuff, Inc. This insole meets and exceeds the minimum force resistance of 270 pounds as specified in ANSI-Z41-1999 to provide excellent protection from sharp objects and is the only puncture resistant orthotic insole accepted by Cal-OSHA. The Rhino Tuff insole takes protection one-step further and provides the added benefit of a support system for all day comfort.
Our insoles eliminate the excruciating foot pain and lost work days experienced by workers who step on a nail, said Ron Blackburn, president of Rhino Tuff, Inc. We also believe our insoles will save employers time and money by reducing on the job foot injuries.
The Puncture-Resistant Orthotic Insole is designed specifically for people who work around sharp objects and spend extended periods of time standing or walking at their workplace. Each insole is made of puncture-resistant, flexible, stainless spring steel, which allows the wearer to feel narrow boards or ladder rungs underneath their feet. The orthotic supports provide comfort unmatched by normal shoe and boot insoles. Each insole is covered with a hypoallergenic lining, which reduces unwanted odors and bacteria growth. The support system incorporated in the insole is designed to reduce fatigue, lower back pain and increase shock absorption reducing joint trauma.

The Noboom petition is gaining momentum, many have said they have heard enough and are sick and tired of the digital bass in their face as well as all over the place. A grassroots petition urging congress to address the issue of loud, pile driving, entertainment audio bass systems in vehicles, has captured the nation's attention and is gaining momentum.
A petition that was started to urge Congress to pass tougher laws regarding the sale, distribution, and use of high decibel amplifiers, linears, speakers, especially those installed in vehicles, has been gaining momentum since it began last summer.
Petition signatures are arriving daily some people are learning about the petition by doing searches on the net with words like loud+car+stereo+law.
According to people in various states, problems have ranged from people being deprived of sleep regularly to their literally being sick and tired. One of the many stress factors include coming down with every cold and flu that has come their way. They are becoming ill apparently from the stress caused by the constant thumping from the low frequency bass. They also report being driven out of their homes forced to relocate only to have the problem appear again and again .
One woman exclaims her grandson who suffered from a seizure disorder was horribly affected by these sounds. "Every time one of these cars passed my house it would send Adam into seizures."
To demonstrate how horrific an issue this is, here is a comment from a university student who is obviously very aggravated by this matter. "I am a student at Indiana University, Bloomington and I can't even get away from the noise at the main library. All of the current periodicals and class reserve materials are kept in a room with reinforced concrete walls and some of the thickest glass I've ever seen and you can still here bass!"
Many of the drivers of these vehicles do not want to acknowledge any form of limitation on their systems. They are powerful enough to be felt for city blocks and through concrete and brick walls as we have experienced firsthand. If insurance companies were to raise their premiums for possession of such equipment in the insured vehicles, perhaps then the abusers would think twice, or would they?
Many people are sick and tired or mad as hell, depending on who you talk to. They say they have heard and felt enough and believe it's time to stop these thugs who have no regard for other people's rights to peace and quiet. The right to a goodnights sleep as well as the right to maintain their health is a right.
All the abusers seem to care about is their so-called right to feeding ther addiction to the bass. These addicts need help and there clearly is a need for a private or federally funded program to recognize and treat their addiction. A strong argument supporting this sentiment is growing as is demonstrated by a Fellow at the University Of OK. He has created a term for this kind of addiction "Audio Stimulus Dependency Disorder" or A.S.D.D. http://members.aol.com/mpwright9/noise5.html A Military Psychologist who also is an audio expert, agrees there is indeed a "high" created by exposing and bombarding the human cells to high amounts of low frequency I.E. digital bass. He believes that "Feeling the music can be dangerous to your health." http://www.omnisonic.com/bbillings.html
In addition these drivers have made themselves virtually soundproof to emergency vehicles as well as the rest of the motorists. Is it really necessary to "feel the music" when you are behind the wheel of a three thousand plus pound piece of machinery moving at an average of 55+ miles per hour that requires your full attention so that you don't kill yourself or anyone around you? Talk about driving distracted!
In one instance a five year old girl died because the ambulance could not reach the hospital, because someone had to "feel the music". One death because of this is too many! http://members.aol.com/mpwright9/noise.html
There is a clear need for defined boundaries on a national level.There must be some kind of limitation put on how powerful and loud these systems can be played. If no limitation is placed these systems will be completely intollerable more so then they already are! Grassroots political action is now needed more than ever! Many communities are either not willing to enforce or create noise ordinances to deal with such an issue or do not have the resources to deal with such a menace to their community. Some of these communities can be found in popular counties in Southern Florida, the city of Fort Myers in Lee county.the cities of Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Davie, Pinecrest, Dania beach in Broward county.
The cities of Miami, North Miami Beach, Aventura in Dade county even as far as Marathon and Key West in Monroe county! as well as the rest of the country and Canada. The problem is so wide spread that it is in Auckland, New Zealand. The menace is growing day after day with some of the biggest electronics manufacturers and lesser known names like "Rockford Fosgate" supplying top big name distributors like "BB" and "CC" as well as others who constantly and irresponsibly install these digital systems and distribute special "digital CDs" to be used in such digital bass systems, essentially hooking the consumer like a crack addict and keeping them coming back for more!
It is time that the American people, who are essentially voting with their dollars, consider the ramifications and consequences of continuing to support and patronize such corporations who demonstrate a reckless regard for the community as a whole and who have clearly demonstrated that their only concern is their bottom dollar.
According to an anonymous member of Citizens Against Audio Trespass "This is the worst example of corporate liability since Big Tobacco and both the manufacturers and distributors of such equipment must be held accountable for the damage they have caused. Like their predecessors, Big Tobacco, they have shown no remorse or take no responsibility for educating the consumer on the legal limits of this kind of equipment or how sound travels or how this is affecting the communities' well-being on a grand scale"
While there has been a very intelligent response from those who feel they are victims from this aggression, the response from those who have created these victims, I.E. the so-called "boomers" has been filled with hate and a general feeling of disgust towards these victims. To think that someone actually complained that they are being hurt and made sick! Some proponents of stronger regulations have received hate mail filled with death threats!
We ask members of congress: Has it become acceptable to hurt people in America and be held completely unaccountable or have we all gone mad?
