Texas patient confirmed as first Ebola case diagnosed in US

DALLAS – A Texas man just back from West Africa has been confirmed as having the first case of Ebola to be diagnosed in the U.S.
Authorities with the Centers for Disease Control revealed the finding Tuesday, two days after the unidentified patient arrived at a Dallas hospital with suspicious symptoms.
Officials at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas put the man into “strict isolation” and sent a blood specimen to the state public health lab for testing.
The CDC said results show the man has the deadly disease which has been linked to more than 3,000 recent deaths in Africa. According to the World Health Organization, there have been more than 6,500 cases confirmed in Africa, with Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone among the hardest hit.
Dr. Christopher Perkins with the Dallas County health department told reporters that the Texas man didn’t start showing symptoms until he arrived home.
“We know at this time this person was not symptomatic during travel but became symptomatic once arriving here and being home for several days,” said Perkins, according the Dallas Morning News. “So that decreases the threat that might be to the general population.”
CDC officials are scheduled to release more details within the hour.
The CDC has a team enroute to North Texas to help health officials re-trace the man's contacts since he has been back in the states.
Ebola is highly contagious and deadly, but only spread through contact with bodily fluids. Dallas County Health and Human Services Director Zachary Thompson spent most of his day trying to calm the fears of North Texans.

Carlos Slim was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1940 to Maronite Catholic parents Julián Slim Haddad and Linda Helú, both of Lebanese descent.  His father, born Khalil Salim Haddad Aglamaz, emigrated to Mexico from Lebanon (then part of the Ottoman Empire) at the age of 14 in 1902 and changed his name to Julián Slim Haddad
Slim and his siblings were taught basic business practices by their father, and at the age of 12, Slim bought shares in a Mexican bank. At the age of 17, he earned 200 pesos a week working for his father's company.  Slim began his career as a trader in Mexico. He would go on to form his own brokerage firm -- a firm that later expanded to invest in individual businesses, ranging from construction and manufacturing to retail and restaurants.
A trained civil engineer and one-time math professor, Slim made his billions in insurance and via his mobile companies
Funny enough, with his fortune estimated at $74 billion. Slim says he has no use for luxury yachts or palatial homes. He still lives in the modest 6-bedroom house he has owned for the last 30 years and is often seen wearing ordinary-looking plain leather watches. His only luxurious indulgences are Cuban cigars and art. He also has a navy Mercedes, which he prefers to drive himself (He doesn't believe in conspicuous consumption and has no interest in flashy super yachts or palatial houses around the world).

Giving back to the society, In 1995 he established Fundación Telmex, a broad-ranging philanthropic foundation. This followed the creation of his eponymous non-profit philanthropic foundation, Fundación Carlos Slim Helú in 1986. In 2007 Slim announced that the latter body had been provided with an asset base of $4 billion and that it would be establishing Carso Institutes for Health, Sports and Education

Assign Duties Accordingly - an entrepreneur can’t be truly successful until they learn to delegate and assign work to people according to their skills and ability. If you don't learn to delegate, you risk never getting anywhere and burning out from frustration. Even if you can't afford to hire your own personal assistant, look at what tasks bog down your day and think about who you can delegate them to.
Also, you can’t be in every place at the same time, when you are not at work someone should be there to act on your behalf.

Time Management - when you learn to use your time very well, you safe yourself and your company a lot of undue tension. When you divide up an hour, you multiply the available time by four. Honor time and truly believe time is money. People will agree with that, attend meeting on time and handle a task at a time.

Have a Daily Action Plan- not having a daily action plan is like a sojourner without his compass then the direction will be gloomy, to every action there must be appropriate and corresponding plan. It is necessary to break organization goals into parts that can be easily achieved and each day with corresponding objective to achieve.

   1.          Laugh when you feel like crying, it reliefs the soul – hmmmm! It sounds so impossible but very real and true if practiced, 
     2.       Keep quiet when you feel like blaming or condemning self or others. It can cause a depression or stir a fight – when you are confused and do not know what to say, do not blame yourself or condemn others, be at ease and use your head not your feelings.
     3.       If you are angry, count 10 before a word, if you are very angry, count 100 and if you are madly angry, please count 1000 before you say a word – hey, any word you say be may used against you tomorrow. When angry, though, it may be difficult, just try to control your emotions or else you will destroy what you cannot build. Is the reason for high blood pressure(high tempo of emotions- fire- 4 -fire)
4.       Do not fail to acknowledge any goodness or kindness done to you and refuse to reflect on the wrong deeds – if you want to live long and be happy refuse to dwell on the wrongs done to you, but always celebrate little love and cares shown to you.
5.       Refuse to discriminate against anyone, but treat all in fairness and truthfulness – all men are the same, never you be little someone, he or she may be the only help you need tomorrow. Treat all with fairness.
6.       Never feel too big to say sorry for a wrong deed committed especially when most needed to silent a fight – like holy book, be at peace with all men, try as much as possible to eat humble pie when you have done a wrong thing by saying sorry. Do not imprison yourself by holding grudges.
7.       Admit it when you are wrong, do not feel you are better than others – one of the best ways to be happy and healthy is to take responsibility of wrong deals and make necessary corrections or adjustments.
8.       Allow others to express their views even if you do not agree with them; never force your opinion on them –It is often noticed in argument that some want to always have their say. Shouting and forcing others to accept their views.
9.       Avoid the company of gossip; they are always at the back- the gossipers are always called backbiters and for them to exhibit their talent you will see them at the rear seats.
Run from them to earn you some credits.
10.   Do unto others as you want them to do unto you- this is one of the golden rules, what you know and very sure cannot tolerate do attempt doing it to others.

Share with friends and family.
