The Mexican ministry of health has confirmed a second wave of H1N1, causing ten deaths in just four days and obliging local authorities to impose new sanitary measures. Despite the suffocatingly hot temperatures everywhere in the country, the new outbreak of the virus has infected 632 persons. The southern region, especially Chiapas state, is the most affected.

Epidemiologist Hugo López Gateli, one of the directors of the National Center for Epidemiological Surveillance, said that cases in Chiapas “have exploded,” to the point that in less than a month the cases have quintupled. Actually, this state now lists 3,664 cases and 19 deaths. Yucatán, in the southeast, has had a similar experience, with the tripling of cases in a few weeks (rising from 683 to 1,906 cases). Mexico City (2,161 cases) is another of the regions with a high rate of infection.

Why Men Are Happier

“Men Are Just Happier People”

What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. Car mechanics tell you the truth. You can be President. You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park.

The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky. You don’t have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100. People never stare at your chest when you’re talking to them. New shoes don’t cut, blister, or mangle your feet.

Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend.

Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough . You almost never have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes. Everything on your face stays its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck.

You can play with toys all your life. One wallet and one pair of shoes — one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can ‘do’ your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.

You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes.

No wonder men are happier.”

Another great post from Michael Yon … Night Into Day”
posted by sat-phone from Sangin, Helmand Province, Afghanistan. The photography is outstanding, and the writing is everything we’ve come to expect from Micheal Yon.

While you’re there, be sure to hit Mike’s tip jar!

A point to ponder

FYI: After viewing the video, I pulled out my Strong’s Dictionary of Bible Words to run a quick fact-check on the author’s claims.

It didn’t match up.

But, just to be sure, I cross-referenced with my copy of Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible.

Guess what?

It matched up, exactly as the video said.

I don’t know what to make of this yet. Coincidence or not, it is remarkable.

And, I believe I am supposed to tell you this:

Be strong. Be bold. Stand.
