DEAR ABBY My husband and I have been married for three years and have two beautiful children. Shortly before our first child was born my in-laws bought a new camera. They bring it along to every visit and constantly take pictures of all of us. Neither my husband nor I like having our pictures taken. My in laws have thousands of pictures of all of us already. The biggest problem is that they do not have a relationship with their grandchildren because of this. They complain that the kids do not like them. They feel they should therefore visit more often but in reality these visits consist of nonstop photo snapping and no quality time is spent with either of the children. How do I make this stop without causing problems OUT OF FOCUS IN NEW YORK DEAR OUT OF FOCUS A diplomatic approach would be to suggest to your in laws that they shoot only for a limited time when they visit no longer than the first 10 minutes. Explain that you realize the kids are growing and changing quickly and you understand their desire to record all of it but the children need a deeper kind of interaction with their grandparents in order to form a positive bond with them. Then suggest some ways they can relate to the little ones after the camera is put away. If they balk tell them the reason their grandchildren do not seem to like them is that children need face to face and eye contact and the camera has prevented it from happening. If they are smart they will listen. FREETOWN (Reuters) - The head doctor fighting an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in Sierra Leone has himself caught the disease one of a growing list of medical workers infected while battling to halt its spread across West Africa. Ebola has killed 632 people across Guinea Liberia and Sierra Leone since an outbreak began in February putting strain on a string of weak health systems facing one of the worlds deadliest diseases despite waves of international help. In a sign of the growing frustrations with the failure of regions governments to tackle the outbreak a Liberian whose brother died from the disease set fire to the Health Ministry in protest on Wednesday. A statement from the presidents office said 39-year-old Sheik Umar Khan a Sierra Leonean virologist credited with treating more than 100 Ebola victims had been transferred to a treatment ward run by medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres. A source at the ward confirmed that the doctor was alive and receiving treatment but gave no details of his condition. Sheik Umar Khan head doctor fighting the deadly tropical virus Ebola in Sierra Leone poses Khan has been hailed a national hero by the Health Ministry for his efforts to lead the fight against an outbreak that has killed 206 people in the West African nation. There is no cure or vaccine for Ebola which can kill up to 90 percent of those infected although the mortality rate of the current outbreak is around 60 percent. It was not immediately clear how Khan had caught the virus. His colleagues told Reuters that he was always meticulous with protection wearing overalls mask gloves and special footwear. Three days ago three nurses working in the same Ebola treatment center alongside Khan died from the disease. Tarik Jasarevic a spokesman for the World Health Organization said around 100 health workers had been infected by Ebola in the three countries with 50 of them dying. Personal protection equipment is very hot. But there is a very strict procedure how you wear it how you take it off what can be re-used or not he said. Health workers take blood samples for Ebola virus testing at a screening tent in the local governmen Earlier this month Samuel Muhumuza Mutoro a senior Ugandan doctor working in Liberia died after treated infected patients. MIAMI (AP) Pasquale Vaglio a retired New York City policeman and Korean War veteran was on the cruise of a lifetime with 18 family members in the summer of 2011 aboard Royal Caribbeans Explorer of the Seas. Then the accident happened. Vaglio 82 fell and hit his head shortly after disembarking for a sightseeing trip in Bermuda. He was immediately taken to the ship medical unit where a nurse did a cursory examination and said Vaglio should rest in his cabin. What she did not know and a doctor would not discover until hours later was that Vaglio had suffered a brain injury that would kill him within days. For more than 100 years people such as Vaglios survivors could not win medical malpractice lawsuits against cruise lines because of exemptions created through a series of court decisions. The most recent is a 1988 ruling known as Barbetta that cruise companies such as Royal Caribbean and Carnival regularly relied upon to get malpractice lawsuits thrown out before trial. Courts said passengers should not expect the same level of medical care on a ship as on land and ships doctors and nurses were private contractors beyond the cruise lines direct control. Now a federal appeals court considering the Vaglio case has ruled the exemption should no longer apply. A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals which has jurisdiction over the major Florida-based cruise lines recently decided Barbetta is outdated law. The judges noted that the Royal Caribbean doctor and nurse wore cruise line uniforms were presented as ship employees and that the onboard medical center was described glowingly in promotional materials. Some modern cruise ships they noted have sophisticated intensive care units laboratories and the ability to do live video conference links with medical experts on shore. We can discern no sound reason in law to carve out a special exemption for all acts of onboard medical negligence Circuit Judge Stanley Marcus wrote in the decision. Much has changed in the quarter-century since Barbetta. The familys initial victory could affect many of the 21 million people who take cruises annually. What we did not realize until this happened was that they have zero liability said Pasquales son Joseph Vaglio a pharmacist who lives in Massapequa New York. There is no way they should be getting away with this. They are making money hand over fist. Part of their cost of doing business should be to have a competent medical staff. Royal Caribbean spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez said the cruise line rejects the Vaglios allegations of medical negligence. The company wants the full 11th Circuit to reconsider the three-judge panels ruling contending there is no good reason to abandon a century of law. While cruise ships may have improved their medical facilities in the last 100 years they should not be punished for it Royal Caribbean lawyers wrote in a Dec. 1 rehearing motion. Royal Caribbean is not in the business of providing health care. It is in the business of providing vacations. According to the family lawsuit after falling and hitting his head Pasquale Vaglio was seen at the ship infirmary by a nurse who noted a bump and scrape on his head. She neither conducted nor recommended a diagnostic scan telling Vaglios wife to keep an eye on him because he might have a concussion.
