He was 21 and fit. He tried to push

Kyler Baughman seemed to be the face of fitness. The 21-year-old aspiring personal trainer filled his Facebook page with photos of himself riding motorbikes and lifting weights. He once posted an image of a kettlebell with a skeleton, reading: "CrossFit, hard to kill." So when he came down with the flu last month, his mother said, he possibly assumed he simply needed some rest. "I think he thought, ´I just got the flu; I´ll be all right,´ " his mother, Beverly Baughman, told NBC affiliate WPXI. But days after Christmas, Kyler Baughman was worse - coughing and running a fever, his family told the

I had influenza when I was 24, and thought it was going to kill me before the fever broke. It´s best to have your flu shot.

Headline is a lie, clickbait.
He went to the hospital and died of the flu.
200,000-500,000 die from the flu every year.
Many more in years with a major outbreak.

I read about the flu epidemic of 1918 that killed so many young men, especially soldiers at home, from the War, in the U.S. What was discovered that the virus itself was not that virulent, but it was able to trigger the antibodies to over-react and literally kill the victim. Youth was a factor. The more healthy and fit were most susceptible to the disease. Ironically, the so-called weak and elderly fared far better.

Influenza in general doesn’t kill people. It is the secondary bacterial infection and sepsis that kill people. If used early Tamiflu may help and antibiotics are lifesaving.

This is so sad, but a prime case of listening to your body and not thinking you are indestructible.

I had my worst cases of flu as a younger person. Turned out the worst topped the flu with a bacterial infection and possible food poisoning. I was within a hairsbreadth of being admitted to the hospital. My brother, a doctor, pumped me full of oral antibiotics and I got through.

As an athlete and personal trainer, he had a lot of bodily contact with gym surfaces (germ ridden) and people. He would find it hard to keep clean even if he were scrupulous about washing hands, taking care on touching surfaces, not touching his eyes and mouth, and using professional level bacterial wipes on surfaces.

If you continue to run a high fever, get to a doctor. Fast. FYI I react badly to all flu vaccines and haven´t had one for years--and this year´s doesn´t work against this year´s flu.

#2, There´s new research published by Kyle Harper in a new book, based upon descriptions in contemporary accounts, that something like the Spanish Flu may have been one of the plagues that brought down the Roman Empire -- the so called ´Plague of Cyprian´ starting AD 249. https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2017/11/solving-the-mystery-of-an-ancient-roman-plague/543528/

One of my uncles died of the Spanish flu onboard one of the last troop ships to head for France in WWI. (As it turned out, those troops were not needed. Irony.) One thing that contributed to the fatality rate was crowded conditions. This was certainly true on that troop ship.

My father was in South Carolina in an Army camp when he got that flu. He was in very bad condition. A nurse who was fond of him told him he’d never get well in that ward and moved his bed outdoors. Out of the crowded flu-ridden ward where he’d been getting worse. He improved. He got well. He lived to be 88.

The young man in the article did try to tough it out and get through the flu. He finally became so ill that he had to be hospitalized. The headline is essentially correct.

Wife recently had this strain, and it was bad. Lingered for weeks before it finally broke.

The Spanish Influenza was what broke the German Army in WWI. More men died from the flu than from battle.

Part of the problem here I think for the young is that they are historically ignorant. They aren´t taught about the 1918 flu that killed so many people worldwide.

After watching a documentary about the lack of hygiene in the WWI camps during the war, I also have to wonder if it wasn´t bird flu that killed all those millions of people. They put the tents so close to the chicken coops holding the chickens that fed them, that during the winter rainy season, it is no surprise that chicken feces might have gotten into the living areas for the men.

I know that this year´s crud was probably the worst I have ever had. You have to take illness serious. You cannot just flick it off.

My dad had the 1918 flu and nearly died of it. He had no medical attention since his parents were Christian Scientists. The positive thing about the experience is that my dad was hardly ever sick a day in his life after that and lived to be just a couple of months short of 100 years old.

Patrick Kennedy Urges
Congress Not to Legalize
‘Addictive’ Marijuana Industry
PJ Media, by Nicholas Ballasy    Original Article

WASHINGTON – Former Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) urged Congress not to legalize marijuana, breaking with other members of his party such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). Schumer announced today for the 4/20 cannabis holiday his plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, writing that he had evolved on the issue along with the electorate. Kennedy argued lawmakers should oppose legalization of marijuana, in part because it would worsen the crisis of addiction in America. “The biggest issue here is denial in our lives, those of us who come from homes with alcoholism and addiction, who live with it in our

Defensive gun use (DGU) happens more regularly in the United States than gun crimes, according to data the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) never publicized. Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck has been arguing that point for a quarter of a century, saying that his own research led him to believe that DGU was far more prevalent than gun-control advocates claim. The CDC’s data, collected a few years after Kleck’s survey, appears to corroborate his findings, Reason.com reported. The question asked in the CDC survey addressed the use or threatened use of a firearm to deter a crime. “During the last 12

At some point in the early morning hours of Saturday, April 14, gay civil-rights lawyer David Buckel’s life went up in a little gay puff of smoke. As some sort of ill-conceived protest against global warming, the 60-year-old rump-wrangler sashayed into Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, doused himself in fossil fuels, and set himself ablaze. Fastidiously gay to the last minute, he even apologized for his untidy demise in a handwritten suicide note near his charred corpse: I am David Buckel and I just killed myself by fire as a protest suicide. I apologize to you for the mess. A longer note found near his

This would send environmentalists into howls of outrage, because good news is bad news for Crisis Entrepreneurs.TM A good example of the broken (plastic!) record of environmentalism comes to us this morning courtesy of the usually half-sober folks

Last night, I reported that, from what I’m hearing, Senate leadership is pushing to confirm Chai Feldblum as EEOC Commissioner this week. Feldblum, as we have discussed, is a left-wing radical who, among other things, formulated President Obama’s LBGT agenda. She thinks it’s fine if that agenda tramples religious freedom, as it often does. Sen. Mike Lee placed a hold on Feldblum’s nomination. However, the plan is to get Lee’s consent by packaging Feldblum with the Trump nominee for EEOC General Counsel. Feldblum is already packaged with two Trump nominees for Commissioner. In my view, this deal isn’t good enough to justify

Former president Barack Obama is a man who exhibits selective outrage based upon how a tragedy can benefit advancing the utopian vision. If an event includes changing "the world as it is" into the world Obama thinks it "should be," the former president will commend whomever he has to. With that in mind, recently, via a piece written for Time magazine entitled "Cameron Kasky, Jaclyn Corin, David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez and Alex Wind," Obama praised the five Parkland student-activists who made Time´s 100 Most Influential People list. The former president wrote, "America´s response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern."

The fight for the control of Washington, after a ton of preliminaries and battlespace preparation, is now underway in earnest. As Robert Mueller seeks a path toward linking Donald Trump to collusion with the Russian government, the president is trying to frame the investigation as a conspiracy hatched by the former administration´s intelligence bosses and secret policemen. It´s a clash between the irresistible force and the immovable object. The start of this war can be dated to January 5, 2017 according to Andrew McCarthy´s research. At this meeting the outgoing president made key decisions on how to investigate his successor

Farquhar, 31, passed out in the dugout during the sixth inning of Friday night´s game against the Houston Astros. Overnight testing revealed that a ruptured aneurysm caused the brain bleed. Farquhar, 1-1 in eight appearances this season, faced four batters and threw 15 pitches to get the final two outs in the top of the sixth before he passed out after the inning.

No, I´m not talking about how the DOJ finally, after another seeming eternity, coughed up the Comey memos—although the vacuous and contradictory contents of the oddball former director´s jottings might have something to do with it. I am referring to the astonishing revelation that the Democratic National Committee (aka the DNC) is filing a lawsuit alleging Russia, the Trump campaign, and WikiLeaks conspired to disrupt the 2016 election.

This is a country of 325-million people. If two guys getting tossed out of a coffee shop is news, then things in Donald Trump´s America must be going pretty damned well. But if the story were only meaningless trash, it would just be typical of American journalism. But it´s pernicious trash meant to advance a false left-wing narrative, which is — oh yeah! — typical of American journalism. In fact, this particular story is a textbook example of why our journalism needs reform. American journalism is a largely Democrat affair. About 7% of journalists identify as Republicans. About 28% identify as Democrats.

It's from election night, when Chozick writes in Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling that it finally became clear somebody had to break the news to Clinton that she was going to lose to Donald Trump. The task fell to "Robby Mook, the drained and deflated campaign manager," per an excerpt in the Times. And when he finally did so, Clinton "didn't seem all that surprised," writes Chozick.

WASHINGTON — For once, President Donald Trump is opting to go smaller. The president who delights in bigness — of his buildings, his crowd sizes, his hands — is opting for a slimmed-down affair when he hosts French President Emmanuel Macron for his first state dinner on Tuesday. Gone are the President Barack Obama-era days of outside event-planning firms and tents set up on the South Lawn to accommodate guest lists of more than 350. Like President George W.

Planned Parenthood is once again proving its hunger for powerful allies in government positions. GOP control of the Senate is narrow, and with the upcoming Senate races, the power balance could tip in favor of Democrat, pro-abortion advocates. Planned Parenthood knows this, of course, and will be pouring a reported $30 million into abortion advocacy through its political arm. This money will be spent on Senate and gubernatorial races in a number of states, including Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, and will be used to fund TV and digital ads, direct-mail campaigns, and even advocacy in the public square.
