Calif i AP The center of the Earth is hotter than the suns with temperature thousands of degrees higher than once say scientists who used diamonds and guns to mimic pressures at the planets core Earths inner core has a temperature of about degrees compared with previous estimates of to scientists from the University of California at Berkeley and the California Institute of Technology reported today in the journal Science The suffice temperature of the sun is about degrees said Thomas j a co author ol the study and geophysics professor 91 Calteeh in pasidena The researchers used laser beams

Column Spread of AIDS by insects feasible By 60RIS GNAUCK The Center of Disease Control CDC and the Natinal institute of Health NH1 told us that AIDS was hard to catch its not Just look at the For a disease which was first recognized in 1981 and was given a name two years it has spread so rapidly that thousands of victims are Millions of Americans harbor the AIDS virus and are potentially contageous as well as their Many of us are shocked that the CDC and NIH did not quarantine people with the AIDS virus right now we have a real medical mess Any dog or cat poultry knows that if you have a sick you must isolate the specimen NASA showed wise judgement in placing the first moon astronauts in isolation upon their return to The negligence of the CDC and the NIH may cost us millions of lives within the next few years as there is no cure for AIDS and very little hope of ever getting an AIDS vaccine because it mutates many times more frequently than the flu The CDC and NIH told is that men can give AIDS to but that women cannot give AIDS to That has been In where AIDS is the AIDS virus has been found in ticks and hereafter term ed as It has been that medical workers have become ill with AIDS from accidental nee dle A blood sucking insects proboscic is a tube like mouth part developed for piercing skin and sucking It functions like a hypodermic Instead of saying that it has not been proven that in sects transmit the AIDS the CDC and NIH should be informing the public that the AIDS virus has been found in African insects where AIDS is It is illegal for us to experiment with humans by plac ing blood sucking insects on AIDS victims and then ex posing healthy humans to those same So how can we prove the insects possible role in spreading AIDS0 Unless it can be proven that blood sucking insects can not transmit we should be cautious and reduce our exposure to Six percent of the AIDS victims do not know how they got AIDS as they are not blood sexual partners of the above nor their newborn It is possible that insects gave AIDS to them Blood sucking insects have been shown to spread many For example Mosquitoes spread cause by a protozoan which is a single celled animal The tsetse fly spreads sleeping caused by another protozoan Sand flies spread Leishmaniasis Fevvr caused by a Ticks spread Lyme disease caused by a Fleas spread bubonic also called sylvattic which is caused by a mites and ticks spread typhus fever which Is a rickettsiae Rickettsia are smaller than bacteria but larger than They also spread relasping fever and Rocky Modhtain Spotted Lice spread trench fever and rabbit also known as These are viral Fleas spread murine typhus fever caused by a Mosquitoes spread yellow fever dengue caused by Mosquitoes spread elephantiasis which is a tiny This worm is approximately times larger than the AIDS I see no reason why blood sucking insects could not transmit other viruses when they can so successfully transmit other viruses and much larger Unless we receive absolute proof that insects cannot transmit the AIDS we should take the following precautions Keep people with AIDS virus away from blood suck ing Wear long sieves and slacks or trousers when outside and insects are Have screens on windows and Use insect repellants such as citronella Outhouses and portable toilets should have toilet seat Use fly paper and other insect Use fly Use bug zappers such as electrical Dump standing water where mosquitoes such as in old tin Encourage insect eating bats and Clear away brush near your home as insects like stills They hate the breezes of cleared Avoid They attract Be careful with They can kill people too I supervise student teachers for the State of New Frequently I visit schools where there are out breaks of fleas or Once I picked up a by sitting at a desk of an absent By AIDS students attend the same Is this wise Until it can be proven that insects cannot transmit we had better take Money is needed for compafsionate

did not get back to a normal agenda until a meeting in Stockholm in January 1985 Shultz is going to Moscow next a furor over Soviet infiltration and eavesdropping at the I S Embassy and a lopsided Senate resolution urging him to reconsider While tke talks will be held under what he calls a heavy the agenda will not be shortened by the spying affair Arms control will be the main but Shulu is ready to talk with Genera Secretary Miljhail S Gorbachev and Foreign Minister Edujrd A Shevardnadze about the war in human rights and other issues There are Shujtz said Wednesday who hold the view that i anything goes just junk the whole thing the distinction President Reagan and Shulu made this is thai ii one way or another we caw pursue spwettuyftg is and that u m our we will do As a matter of fact Shultz is not expected to dwell on nonnuclear issues The two sides have just completed sweeping reviews in Washington and Moscow We dont expect a whole lot of and we dont expect any another senior I S official said While the spying dispute will not trim Shultzs he is less likely to be in the partly because the I S charges have made conservatives here at home even more suspicious of dealing with said the who spoke only on condition of anonymi ty A resolution adopted Thursday by the Senate on a 7030 vote urged Shultz either to cancel the Moscow trip or to find a more secure
