    Washington, DC (Herald de Paris) — As we enter into December, with snow falling in Sioux Country, many people have asked why we have not been reporting on the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the stand-off between the US Army Corps of Engineers, the Standing Rock Sioux, and the growing protest in North Dakota. The truth is, we are neck deep in our own investigation, and we are not yet ready to reveal all we have uncovered. Without blowing the cover off our exclusive investigation, here is what we can tell you, thus far:
    .
    Our exclusive investigative team includes professional cultural resources specialists with nearly 40 years of combined experience in cultural resources, protected land, and in particular Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, the legislation at the center of the controversy. Our team has been scouring through hundreds of pages of documents on the Dakota Access Pipeline project, looking to see that the US Army Corps of Engineers adhered to the letter of the law with respect to Section 106; that the rights of the indigenous people were not violated; and that the program was scoped within the allowable standard practices in the cultural resources industry.

    Zika

    WASHINGTON, DC (Herald de Paris) — Today, in a White House briefing Dr Anne Schucaht, Principal Deputy Director of the Center for Disease Control said everything to do with the Zika virus is, “Scarier than initially thought.”
    .
    While Congress has all but ignored the White House administration’s formal request for $1.9 Billion in funding to control, prevent, and combat the Zika virus, the CDC and NHIAID have gone full speed ahead in its research to stop the virus.

    President Obama last week announced he had re-appropriated a small portion of the resources for Ebola to fight Zika,but this amount falls a long way short of the $1.9 Billion needed.
    .
    Citing a close relationship with the pharmaceutical industry for disease vaccination and preventions, Dr. Fauci, Director of NIH/NIAID in the same press conference today was abrupt and to the point and said he needed the full $1.9 Billion. He said that if he didn’t get it he would have to draw funds from other worthy areas, such as malaria, and flu vaccinations.
