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.

A local branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is holding a vigil Sunday for a black man who was killed Thursday in what authorities are calling a "stand your ground" shooting.

Seminole´s Brittany Lincicome did not make the cut in her first PGA Tour event, but she did improve by seven shots in her second round. Lincicome shot 1-under 71 on Saturday at the Barbasol Championship in Nicholasville, Ky., after having to wait an extra day to play her second round due to rain. Her two-day total was 5-over 149.

An Australian man who identifies as a transgender woman defended himself in court on Thursday, claiming that he was either possessed by a demon or his mind was addled by drugs and therefore it was his body, not him, who attacked people at a 7-Eleven with an ax last year. Evie Amati, the 26-year-old suspect, does not deny being bodily present at the time, but claims his* mind was somewhere else.

Given that most of the application that Barack Obama’s Department of Justice submitted to the FISA court to obtain a surveillance order on Carter Page has been redacted, what we can say about the application is limited. Still, a few things stand out. First, the FISA application expresses confidence that Page was an agent of the Russian government, and engaged in criminal activity: (Snip) But Page has never been charged with anything. Accordingly, the least we can say is that Obama’s FBI and DOJ were wrong. Second, the application’s description of Christopher Steele and the provenance of his dossier was misleading at

Jordan Spieth leads The Open as

Defending champion Jordan Spieth has a share of The Open lead after a faultless third round with Tiger Woods also in contention at Carnoustie. American Spieth, 24, shot a six-under 65 as he bids to become the first man to retain the Claret Jug since 2008. Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele are also nine under par, with Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood on five under. Woods shot his lowest round at a major since 2011 as a five-under-par 66 put him alongside McIlroy and Fleetwood. Making his first Open appearance since 2015, Woods sunk six birdies to take a share of a six-way lead

Progressives and their neocon brethren have been predictably outraged this week, because at the press conference after the Helsinki summit on Monday, our president appeared to give the detested Vladimir Putin the benefit of the doubt. Despite the contrary views of Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and many others, Trump said he believed Putin that the “Russian state” had not interfered in the 2016 presidential election. So, to our perpetually hysterical media, Trump is now a traitor who is siding with Russia over his own country. Yet the childish reactions have obscured a number of important facts. To begin with,

Birthright Citizenship: An

The 14th Amendment became part of the U.S. Constitution 150 years ago in July of 1868. Among other things, it enshrined our traditional common law practice of granting citizenship to those born in the United States who are subject to its laws—specifically it guaranteed that the recently freed slaves and their descendants would be citizens. The 14th Amendment also applied to the children of immigrants, as its authors and opponents understood at the time. President Trump’s immigration position paper, however, famously endorsed an end to birthright citizenship. Michael Anton, a former national security official in the Trump administration as well as

Resign, Mike Pompeo.

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

Sixty-one percent of the people in my county voted for him. Drive through most communities in my town and you’ll still see large blue Trump campaign signs on perfectly manicured lawns.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif — From Malibu to Santa Cruz, wealthy people are blocking access to California’s publicly owned beaches. And no group has fought the public longer than the gated community of Hollister Ranch, about 130 miles north of Los Angeles. For more than 36 years, residents there have spent millions of dollars on lawyers and lobbyists to bar the hoi polloi from an 8.5-mile-long beach adorned with several coves. In May, after more than four years of litigation over public access to the beach, a settlement was announced between the ranch cooperative, on one side, and the California Coastal Commission
