ENYOKENI PALACE (Reuters) - Thousands of Zulu girls gathered outside the palace of their king as part of an ancient wife-choosing ceremony this weekend, and were urged to stay virgins in order to protect themselves from AIDS.

The Royal Reed Dance was once a chance for the head of South Africa's largest tribe to pick new wives from his assembled subjects, but lately King Goodwill Zwelithini has used the occasion to address his subjects on morality and development.

By STEPHANIE NANO, Associated Press Writer

Swiss researchers have documented a rare case of a patient contracting a second HIV infection years later with a different strain of the virus.

Doctors once assumed that patients' natural immunity would keep them from getting the virus more than once. However, in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine, researchers describe the case of a 38-year-old man who acquired a second strain through unprotected sex more than two years after he was first infected in 1998.

Thu Aug 29, 2002

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) - Efforts to uplift the world's poor will be meaningless without a massive international campaign to fight the AIDS pandemic ravaging Africa and other developing nations, a top U.N. official said Thursday.

"If AIDS is not brought under control, if people are not alive, if people are not healthy ... (development) won't happen," Dr. Peter Piot, head of UNAIDS, told reporters at the World Summit for Sustainable Development.

AIDS: Genocial Germ for a New World Order?

By Dr. Len Horowitz

Submitted for publication in "The California Sun" on request from the editor Nicole Shoong. 

Despite the near universal acceptance of the African monkey theory of AIDS's origin, most evidence suggests that AIDS is a man-made disease. In fact, the African American majority's fear that the AIDS epidemic may be genocide is very well founded.

By ELISABETH ROSENTHAL

DONGHU, China — Neighbors remember when young Dong Yangnan was a "xiao pangzi," or little fatty, the kind of husky, moon-cheeked child that Chinese grandmothers adore. Today, at 12, he is orphaned, stick thin and dressed in tattered clothes.

Last summer, his mother died of AIDS. His father, coughing and feverish, succumbed to the disease in May. Yangnan lives with an elderly grandfather, surviving on rice gruel and steamed buns.

WEDNESDAY, Aug. 21 (HealthScoutNews) -- HIV-positive men are more likely to have unprotected sex if they love a good thrill and believe alcohol enhances their sexual enjoyment.

So says a new study in the August issue of the Annals of Behavioral Medicine.

The study found that HIV-positive men described as "sensation seekers" were more likely to have unprotected sex, whether or not they drank alcohol. It also found alcohol use predicted unsafe sex independently.

Dear Professor Lee: Thanks for the links, albeit slightly confusing. Why aren't you posting the progress reports of the U.S. Special Virus program?

WHEN WAS MOUSE/RAT MURINE AIDS isolated?

Isn't it true that HIV has sequences from rats, consistent with the cover of the U.S. Special Virus program? Are we to believe an African copulated a rat, monkey, sheep and cow and then lost his immunity to fend off infectious disease?

Re: your July 30, 2002 letter

Dear Dr. Rabson:

On May 15, 2000, Dr. Victoria Cargill sent you the 1971 flowchart of the U.S. Special Virus program. The flowchart is first located in the archives of your agency at page 61 of the 1971 report of the federal virus program. The preceding sixty pages of the 1971 report of the federal virus program answer every question as to the true laboratory origin of the HIV(AIDS) enzyme.
