CNN said “The medicine is a three-mouse monoclonal antibody, meaning that mice were exposed to fragments of the Ebola virus and then the antibodies generated within the mice’s blood were harvested to create the medicine. It works by preventing the virus from entering and infecting new cells.”
The serum is stored at Subzero temperature.
Testing of the serum:
Some monkeys were exposed to Ebola virus. Four of the monkeys were injected with the serum and they survived while the control monkey was not given the serum and it died after few days of exposure to Ebola virus.
Sometime last month (July 2014), two American doctors, Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebols who were taking care of Ebola patients in Liberia were reported to have tested positive to Ebola virus. The American scientists who obtained the serum secured permissions/consents to treat Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebols with their serum. According to CNN, the experimental serum “stored at subzero temperatures, reached the hospital in Liberia where Brantly and Writebol were being treated Thursday morning. Doctors were instructed to allow the serum to thaw naturally without any additional heat. It was expected that it would be eight to 10 hours before the medicine could be given, according to a source familiar with the process. Brantly asked that Writebol be given the first dose because he was younger and he thought he had a better chance of fighting it, and she agreed. However, as the first vial was still thawing, Brantly’s condition took a sudden turn for the worse. Brantly began to deteriorate and developed labored breathing. He told his doctors he thought he was dying, according to a source with firsthand knowledge of the situation. Knowing his dose was still frozen, Brantly asked if he could have Writebol’s now-thawed medication. It was brought to his room and administered through an IV. Within an hour of receiving the medication, Brantly’s condition dramatically improved. He began breathing easier; the rash over his trunk faded away. One of his doctors described the events as “miraculous.” By the next morning, Brantly was able to take a shower on his own before getting on a specially designed Gulfstream air ambulance jet to be evacuated to the United States.”
Brantly is currently been treated in Emory University Hospital facilities in Atlanta and he is reported to be “miraculously” improving. He has very high chance of been cured. Alas, America has kept this a top secret.
In as much as I celebrate the courage of the scientists in obtaining the serum, I also give them a thumps down for limiting the use of the serum to only America/Americans. If I were them, Africa would have access to this serum as soon as possible but that would mean minimum financial profit to the inventors/investors but maximum health care to the patients. This is another reason why African scientists must be challenged to solve this Ebola puzzle by ourselves and for ourselves.
I want to read in the newspapers that African scientists have also obtained so much quantity of the said serum, secured necessary certifications and commenced treatment of Ebola patients. We shouldn’t let our irresponsibility rob our brothers and sisters their precious lives by a ‘curable’ disease. Its time to prove your Bachelor of Science Degree. Go back to the Laboratories. It’s ‘Operation Cure Ebola’.

Atlanta, GA — The rumors are true. The National Church of Bey, an organization that recently formed the new religion Beyism (based on pop star Beyoncé Knowles), is a real organization based in Atlanta, Georgia. Although Beyoncé herself is not believed to be a part of it, she is the foundation of it and has so far not made a statement denouncing it.
The church’s founder, Pauline John Andrews, recently stated, “We are very disappointed in the failure of the public to recognize the existence of a divine Deity walking among them. Deity’s often walk the Earth in their flesh form. Beyoncé will transcend back to the spirit once her work here on Mother Earth has been completed.”
They believe that Beyonce “sits among the throne of Gods”
He continued, “As our congregation continues to swell, we ask that you consider what is more real; an invisible spirit on high, or a walking, talking, breathing Goddess who shows you her true form daily? Beyoncé’s spirit is entrancing. We know that she was sent to this place to spread love, peace, and joy. While we do not believe Beyoncé to be the Creator, we recognize that she still sits among the throne of Gods. There is a lot of false information being spread about our beliefs, but we will correct all of the vicious lie-tellers. As Beyoncé spreads her gospel through song and dance, her message provides uplifting, loving, and many times real-life happenings. We humbly ask you to respect our beliefs, just as you want those to respect yours. Open your mind to new possibilities and you will see, just as we did, that Bey is a true higher power. Surfbort!”
They have their own version of the Bible — the Beyble
He adds, “We have published the Beyble and it will soon be available for free to the public. Donations have poured in and we will soon have enough to build a temple in honor of Mother Bey. We will invite her to speak to her flock, once the doors are open.”
Reportedly, The National Church Of Bey is also looking to expand outside of the Atlanta area. According to them, they already have parishes popping up all over the United States, Canada, and England.

It has also been reported that Oprah Winfrey has her own religion called the O-Religion and they worship the TV celebrity Oprah Winfrey while Jay Z was reported to be an influential member of the Illuminati.
