Thought Idol sent through an insane amount of less than average singers....over 50 sent to hollywood from jersey alone? they were waaaaay to lenient on people. The new judges were sucked in by tears.

Re: 7 13 Are you going to be ok, Harv?? Someone is unhappy that they have a ****ty comp. I know it is devastating, try to contain yourself until you are off the air, though.

The RICH get RICHER and the POOR get POORER.

Why is it the people that don't need ANOTHER job, get offered EVERYTHING?

Why is it celebrities get FREE meals/services/etc. and THEY are the very people in these times that CAN afford to pay for those products and services?

Just goes to is fair but it's all we've got.

Yuck just threw up in my mouth with Harvey singing, and Harvey has NO SHAME.

You got a letter from George Slaughter because HARVEY slaughtered that song!

My Way, again? I wish it was technical difficulties. Once was hilarious, twice has made me shut down my video stream. Sorry Harvey, can't take it

n absolute figures per year, Malaria is more deadly, in Ghana alone 40,000 people die of Malaria every year. Mostly infants and elderly people. Malaria is most common in tropical Africa, so places like South Africa have very little of it, or it has been eradicated (by protecting the population from the mosquitos and eradicating the mosquitos).

In the future however, this will change as unless medication comes through for AIDS (there already are lots of advances, but none are low-cost), up to 30% of the populations of South Africa, Botswana, Swaziland will die of AIDS, this will be millions of people dead.

There is hope for AIDS, with proper anti-retrovirals as they are called, AIDS in the developed world is none but a chronic disease, patients may live a healthy life eating those pills, of course they can't have children however, maybe not even in-virto fertilisation.

Malaria, there is hope as well, but there is no cure or vaccination available for it. The hope lies in protecting the population from it, and eradicating the mosquitos (spraying, getting rid of standing water, improving sewage situations). Malaria is very deadly, though some pills (like artisenate) help so much that more wealthy persons are now safe from it. Preventive medicine is not very good (Lariam causes paranoia and bad dreams, Chloroquinine is an antibiotic and causes resistance in the mosquitos against it), but Malaria is something that people in tropical africa get several times per year, and it affects their physical capabilities as they spend so much time ill.

Both are deadly diseases, malaria maybe kills 2 million per year in Africa, and AIDS will soon do the same if not already so unless treated.

This is why there is a Global Fund for Malaria, HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis, created by the UN to fight these diseases, but no world leaders seem to take note. Some 10 billion USD per year is needed to solve these issues I guess, not much money in the West really.

The way to raise that money is to invent new taxes that look into 'innovative sources of financing' i.e. taxing air travel (which goes untaxed as kerosine has no tax on it) and maritime transport (maritime fuel isn't taxed either), taxing the profits of multinational companies globally (as they operate globally), taxing currency transactions as monies are changed all the time globally and it could be taxed.
