Should President Trump heed Pope Francis’s warning about Global Warming?

I found an opinion poll that could use some attention, but it appears to be on a conservative news aggregate site and I wasn't sure I should be posting it here.

NC billboard supporting Trump travel ban ignites controversy with 9/11 reference

A controversial North Carolina billboard has drawn criticism for referring to the 9/11 terror attack in promoting President Trump’s travel ban.

The billboard on I-40 in Catawba County says “why support President Trump’s immigration ban? 19 Muslim immigrants killed 2977 Americans. September 11, 2001.”

Some find the billboard hateful, WSOC-TV reported on Friday.

"I believe in the Christian way and that's to embrace everybody,” a man named Oliver Reitzell told the station. “Kind of the hate message behind it. I'm not for that."

An associate pastor Paul Cummings said the billboard contradicts teachings from the Bible.

"My opinion is that I think these people need the saving gospel of Jesus more than I need to be protected,” Cummings told the station. “I'm perfectly willing for people who are hostile to us, to be in our country, because that's what loving your enemy is all about."

A group called the North Carolina Pastors Network paid for the billboard and has refused to remove it.

"This has nothing whatsoever to do with hatred or hostility toward anyone that comes from a background," Dave Kistler, the group’s president, told WCNC-TV. "I have dear friends that are Muslim."

The station points out that the 19 9/11 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Lebanon. Those countries are not part of the president's travel ban.

The U.S. appeals court in Virginia ruled Thursday that the Trump revised ban violated constitutional rights.

Start of summer brings warnings about diarrhea and brain-eating amoeba


Ahead of Memorial Day weekend and the opening of pools and beaches, the Illinois Department of Public Health issued warnings about diarrhea and a brain-eating amoeba.

The week before the holiday is designated Healthy and Safe Swimming Week, and the theme for this year is “Diarrhea and Swimming Don't Mix.” One gulp of water where a swimmer has had a “diarrheal incident” can cause diarrhea that lasts up to three weeks, health officials warned.

Many assume that chlorine kills organisms instantly, but germs like Cryptosporidium can survive in a chlorinated pool for more than one week. Other illnesses include ear, eye and wound infections.

To help prevent sickness, officials suggest the following:

• Shower before getting in the pool.

• Stay out of the water if you have diarrhea – swim diapers will not contain diarrhea if your child has an accident.

• Don’t pee or poop in the water.

• Don’t swallow the water.

• Report it if you or your child has a diarrheal incident while swimming.

• Take kids on bathroom breaks every hour.

• Check diapers and change them in a bathroom or diaper changing area – not poolside.
