"I will be his mouth (Aaron) and your mouth, and I will teach you what you are to do.” Exodus 4:15 OK, call me thick-headed, but I never quite caught what Moses was saying in this verse. As I imagine all of the supernatural events that took place in Moses’ life, I am amazed. But what is more amazing is how Moses accomplished God’s tasks, and how we can, too. This verse gives us amazing clarity that we should all take to heart. The odds were stacked against Moses. He was an outsider with his own people. He had wanted posters posted throughout Egypt.

MOHMANDARA DISTRICT, Afghanistan — Militants attacked a U.S. base in Afghanistan near the border with Pakistan this morning, leading to multiple explosions, a gunfight and the closure of a key road used by NATO supply trucks, officials said. Several vehicles belonging to U.S.-led forces were torched or otherwise damaged, and three alleged attackers were killed, but the main section of the base was not breached. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the strike in the Torkham area, the latest in a surge of attacks in Afghanistan as U.S.-led foreign troops reduce their presence en route to a full withdrawal by the end of next year.
Certain vaccines will guard against four strains of flu rather than the usual three.
WASHINGTON — Flu vaccination is no longer merely a choice between a jab in the arm or a squirt in the nose. This fall, some brands promise a little extra protection. For the first time, certain vaccines will guard against four strains of flu rather than the usual three. Called quadrivalent vaccines, these brands may prove more popular for children than their parents. That’s because kids tend to catch the newly added strain more often. These four-in-one vaccines are so new they will make up only a fraction of the nation’s supply of flu vaccine, so if you want a dose, better start looking early. But that’s only one of an unprecedented number of flu vaccine options available this year. Allergic to eggs? Egg-free shots are hitting the market, too. Plus there’s growing interest in shots brewed just for the 65-and-older crowd, and a brand that targets the needle-phobic with just a skin-deep prick. “We’re moving away from the one-size-fits-all to choosing the best possible vaccine for an individual’s age and condition,” said Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious disease specialist at the Mayo Clinic.
