Migrant boy died of flu, not cold, experts say

The boy who died on Christmas appears to have died of the flu.
US doctors sent him home with cold medicine instead. They don't seem to have tested for flu.
That's negligence.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/27/health/guatemalan-boy-death-doctors/index.html
The flu appears to have been contracted in unsanitary US facility because he died 7 days after arrival at US.

Have other children died of flu?

How many other children have died? Was flu tested? What did the autopsy say?
Was there an autopsy at all?

Did Jakelin Caal died of the flu? (It can kill you in hours).

US said it was not known whether she ate or drank enough during the trip. Is that true? The father denies it. Did she contract the flu in unsanitary US facilities?

Congress has a lot of questions to ask and subpoenas to issue.

I think silver should stick to adding and multiplying.

"The provocative actions of the Israeli air force... directly threatened two airliners," it said.

The statement said the unidentified airliners "not from Russia, were preparing to land at the airports of Beirut and Damascus".

The Syrian military said the attacks were carried out from within Lebanese air space. Syrian state news agency, Sana, said most of the missiles were intercepted.

Fred Trump agreed not to increase the rent of Donald Trump's draft foot doctor

This is the hottest news article today.

Quoted below is the daughter of Larry Braunstein, the foot doctor who diagnosed Donald Trump with bone spurs during the Vietnam War:

Elysa Braunstein said the implication from her father was that Mr. Trump did not have a disqualifying foot ailment. “But did he examine him? I don’t know,” she said.

The article goes on to note that the foot doctor was a tenant of Fred Trump, (Donald’s father). Fred Trump agreed not to increase the foot doctors rent in subsequent years, suggesting the diagnosis was a favor:

Dr. Alec Hochstein, who worked with Dr. Braunstein in the late 1990s, said the podiatrist had recalled over dinner with their wives how the Trumps had treated him well, including backing off from rent increases.
