How you make some connection between Bush and WHO recommendations for use of DDT to stop malaria is beyond me.

The U.S. government already has decided to pay for DDT and other indoor insecticide use as part of President Bush's $1.2 billion, five-year initiative to control malaria in Africa.

Besides, it's happening on Bush's watch, and we all know that everything that happens is BUSH'S FAULT

But heard someone advocating limited use of DDT in problem areas in the states to help fight West Nile Virus.

Maybe he flushed a 3 gallon toilet instead of the new federal 1.6 gallon toilets.

DDT or people dying from malaria. I guess we already know where the "environmentalist" stand. As I recall DDT had one major drawback and that was causing bird shells to be brittle so fewer birds hatched, and that was mainly in the larger bird species. Rachel Carson wrote a book called Silent Spring, which title was a bit misleading since it was less the songbirds and more the large birds which were affected.

DDT continues to be used in other (primarily tropical) countries where mosquito-borne malaria and typhus are serious health problems. Use of DDT in public health to control mosquitoes is primarily done inside buildings and through inclusion in household products and selective spraying; this greatly reduces environmental impact compared to the earlier widespread use of DDT in agriculture. It also reduces the risk of resistance to DDT.[2] This use only requires a small fraction of that previously used in agriculture; for the whole country of Guyana, covering an area of 215,000 km

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
