Quarantine on IMDb
A quarantine is used to separate and restrict the movement of people. This is used in connection to disease and illness, such as those who may have been exposed to a communicable disease, but do not have a confirmed medical diagnosis; the term is erroneously used to mean medical isolation, "to separate ill persons who have a communicable disease from those who are healthy," and refers to patients whose diagnosis has been confirmed. Quarantine may be used interchangeably with cordon sanitaire, although the terms are related, cordon sanitaire refers to the restriction of movement of people into or out of a defined geographic area, such as a community, in order to prevent an infection from spreading; the word quarantine comes from an Italian variant of'quaranta giorni', meaning forty days, the period that all ships were required to be isolated before passengers and crew could go ashore during the Black Death plague epidemic. Quarantine can be applied to humans, but to animals of various kinds, both as part of border control as well as within a country.
The quarantining of people raises questions of civil rights in cases of long confinement or segregation from society, such as that of Mary Mallon, a typhoid fever carrier, arrested and quarantined in 1907 and spent the last 24 years and 7 months her life in medical isolation at Riverside Hospital on North Brother Island. Quarantine periods can be short, such as in the case of a suspected anthrax attack, in which persons are allowed to leave as soon as they shed their contaminated garments and undergo a decontamination shower. For example, an article entitled "Daily News workers quarantined" describes a brief quarantine that lasted until people could be showered in a decontamination tent.. The February/March 2003 issue of HazMat Magazine suggests that people be "locked in a room until proper decon could be performed", in the event of "suspect anthrax". Standard-Times senior correspondent Steve Urbon describes such temporary quarantine powers: Civil rights activists in some cases have objected to people being rounded up, stripped and showered against their will.
But Capt. Chmiel said local health authorities have "certain powers to quarantine people"; the purpose of such quarantine-for-decontamination is to prevent the spread of contamination, to contain the contamination such that others are not put at risk from a person fleeing a scene where contamination is suspect. It can be used to limit exposure, as well as eliminate a vector. New developments for quarantine include new concepts in quarantine vehicles such as the ambulance bus, mobile hospitals, lockdown/invacuation procedures, as well as docking stations for an ambulance bus to dock to a facility under lockdown. One of the earliest mentions of isolation is found in the Biblical book of Leviticus, written in the seventh century BC or earlier, which describes how infected people were separated to prevent spread of disease under the Mosaic Law: "If the shiny spot on the skin is white but does not appear to be more than skin deep and the hair in it has not turned white, the priest is to isolate the affected person for seven days.
On the seventh day the priest is to examine them, if he sees that the sore is unchanged and has not spread in the skin, he is to isolate them for another seven days." The word "quarantine" originates from the Venetian dialect form of the Italian quaranta giorni, meaning'forty days'. This is due to the 40-day isolation of people before entering the city-state of Ragusa; this was practiced as a measure of disease prevention related to the Black Death. Between 1348 and 1359, the Black Death wiped out an estimated 30% of Europe's population, a significant percentage of Asia's population; the original document from 1377, kept in the Archives of Dubrovnik, states that before entering the city, newcomers had to spend 30 days in a restricted place waiting to see whether the symptoms of Black Death would develop. Isolation was prolonged to 40 days and was called quarantine; the forty-day quarantine proved to be an effective formula for handling outbreaks of the plague. According to current estimates, the bubonic plague had a 37-day period from infection to death.
Other diseases lent themselves to the practice of quarantine before and after the devastation of the plague. Those afflicted with leprosy were isolated from society, as were the attempts to check the spread of syphilis in northern Europe after 1492, the advent of yellow fever in Spain at the beginning of the 19th century, the arrival of Asiatic cholera in 1831. Venice took the lead in measures to check the spread of plague, having appointed three guardians of public health in the first years of the Black Death; the next record of preventive measures comes from Reggio in Modena in 1374. The first lazaret was founded by Venice on a small island adjoining the city. In 1467, Genoa followed the example of Venice, in 1476 the old leper hospital of Marseille was converted into a plague hospital; the great lazaret of Marseille the most complete of its kind, was founded in 1526 on the island of Pomègues. The practice at all the Mediterranean lazarets was not different from the English procedure in the Levantine and North African trade.
Quarantine (Red Dwarf)
"Quarantine" is the fourth episode of science fiction sitcom Red Dwarf Series V and the twenty eighth in the series run. It was first broadcast on the British television channel BBC2 on 12 March 1992; the episode, fifth to be filmed, was the first one to be directed by Rob Grant & Doug Naylor. The episode has Rimmer turning against the rest of the crew. Red Dwarf receives a distress signal from the hologram Dr. Hildegarde Lanstrom; the crew takes Starbug to visit the Viral Research Centre, where Rimmer is requested by Kryten to return to Red Dwarf in an escape pod due to Lanstrom being a hologram. Rimmer is put out at this when Kryten pulls a Space Corps Directive on him. Complaining that Kryten only pulls them on him, Rimmer is given a copy of the Space Corps Directive Manual to read on his trip back. Soon, the others activate her, she gives chase, speaks to Rimmer on the radio, causing him to decide to head back to Red Dwarf anyway. Lister and the Cat decide to give Lanstrom the run-around, as the holo-virus will soon kill her.
However Lanstrom corners them and is about to finish them off when, just in time, the virus takes its toll and Lanstrom disappears. The three head back to Red Dwarf, they discover Lanstrom had been working on a theory that viruses can be positive as well as negative, that she had isolated several positive viruses, including "Intuition", "Sexual Magnetism" and the "Luck Virus", which grants whomever contracts it extreme good luck for a brief time until the natural body defenses combat it and it wears off. Lister takes the chance to test the luck virus, which gives him incredible luck for a few minutes until it wears off. Returning to the ship, they discover Rimmer has full control of the ship and has had Starbug is redirected to Bay 47, which Lister recognises as the quarantine bay. Having decided to use the Space Corps Directives against the others, he quotes a rule that gets the others thrown in isolation for three months. There, nothing gets in and nothing gets out, not a microbe; the only things the internees have to entertain them are a chess set with 31 missing pieces, a knitting magazine, crossword books with nearly all the crosswords completed, music tailored to Rimmer's own unpopular taste, a video entitled Wallpapering and Stippling - a DIY Guide.
To make things more hellish, Rimmer gives them only one bunk between them. Predictably, Lister and the Cat all soon start getting on each other's nerves - much to Rimmer's delight. After 5 days, they realise they can challenge Rimmer to let them out. However, it soon emerges that Rimmer has the holo-virus, having contracted it when he spoke to Lanstrom over the radio, he appears to the crew wearing a red-and-white checked gingham dress and army boots, teaming up with a glove puppet, named Mr. Flibble, sentencing his "naughty" shipmates to two hours of W. O. O. Saying "That'll teach you to be breadbaskets." Things look pretty bad, but by using a massive dose of the luck virus, Lister is able to guess the door code to get them out of quarantine. Now on the run from Rimmer, Kryten has a plan to purge the holo-virus from his system. Thanks to the luck virus, all the equipment that's needed just happens to be lying at their feet. Just in the nick of time, Kryten activates Rimmer is cured. After being informed that Rimmer will be fine, Lister takes it as a sign the luck virus has worn off.
The episode ends with Rimmer, back to normal, in quarantine. Lister and Cat appear to him wearing checked gingham dresses, suggesting that they intend to make his stay every bit as maddening as theirs. Due to Juliet May leaving as director, the remaining episodes were directed by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor. Quarantine, fifth to be filmed in the series, was the first one to be directed by the co-creators. Although supposed to be a bottle episode with simple'dialogue' for the series Grant and Naylor found it hard going; the main scene of the Cat and Kryten arguing in the quarantine bay took a grand total of 57 minutes to record, the cast either breaking up with laughter or else having trouble with dialogue that had only been delivered. The increasing frustration did, add to the effectiveness of the sceneThe original idea was to have each of the crew infected with Psi-powers, but this was changed to the positive viruses story. Time constraints, coupled with the fact that it was pitched as the cheap show, meant that the script wasn't developed as well as Grant and Naylor had hoped.
It was the cheap show. Maggie Steed agreed to wear a prosthetic face mask to appear as the dying hologramatic Dr Lanstrom. Dr Hildegarde Lanstrom references Schopenhauer's "Life without pain has no meaning" quote; the episode was broadcast on the British television channel BBC2 on 12 March 1992 in the 9:00pm evening time slot, was considered as one of the better episodes from the series, just behind "Back to Reality". Viewers enjoyed Rimmer's descent into insanity, the character of Mr. Flibble becoming a fan favourite; the episode has been described as one which "epitomizes the blend of sci-fi and comedy that made the show such a hit."

Quarantine (Laurel Halo album)
Quarantine is the debut album by American electronic musician Laurel Halo, released in 2012 on the Hyperdub label. It received acclaim from critics, was named release of the year by British magazine The Wire. Halo recorded Quarantine between July 2011 and February 2012 in her home studio, with some instrument tracks recorded in London, she made over thirty demos. In November 2011, Halo sent the LP demos to Hyperdub label head Steve Goodman, who responded with positive interest. Applying extensive echo and reverb to her vocals, which she found "supremely boring," Halo instead opted to leave them dry and unadorned, stating that "it was tempting to use autotune but I decided against it because there’s this brutal, sensual ugliness in the vocals uncorrected, painfully human vocals made sense." Speaking to Fact, she described the album's thematic focus as "contrails, volatile chemicals, viruses."The album cover features an adaptation of Harakiri School Girls, a work by Makoto Aida which Halo chose for the artwork after seeing it at an exhibition on Japanese pop art in New York.
She stated that "I love that it’s brutal and violent but colourful and slow to sink in." Quarantine received positive critical reviews from critics, with an aggregate score of 80 out of 100 on Metacritic. The Wire named Quarantine as the "release of the year" in its annual critics' poll. Ian Cohen of Pitchfork called the album "something definitive" and Halo's "best and most cohesive work to date."The Quietus called it "one of this year's most intriguing and divisive listens," and noted that "what's blasted her music headlong into the future is its re-integration of those most ancient of musical devices - the unadorned human voice, verse/chorus structures – into environments they’re so unfamiliar with." The Guardian wrote that "it manages to sidestep pretension at every turn due to the near-naive vocals that dominate the warm crackle and glow." Resident Advisor states "Quarantine binds her past sounds into a toxic, lush blend of ambient suspension and disorienting detail," and called the album Halo's "most immersive and beautiful work to date."

Quarantine (video game)
Quarantine is a 1994 racing/first-person shooter video game for MS-DOS and 3DO, created by Imagexcel and published by GameTek. Versions for the Japanese market were done in 1996 by Asmik for the PlayStation and MediaQuest for the Sega Saturn, renamed as Hard Rock Cab and Death Throttle respectively. In the game the player drives a taxicab through a post-apocalyptic city, picking up customers and killing enemies. Due to the gratuitous violence the game was controversial at the time of release; the success of Doom by id Software in 1993 led to many other companies attempting to follow Doom's success. Most ended up making unsuccessful "doom clones". Quarantine was one of the few games that exploited the features of Doom with its own texture mapped stages, semi-open world maps, vehicular combat gameplay; the game was continued with the sequel, Quarantine II: Road Warrior, which kept the original gameplay, but introduced a more mission and story-driven gameplay. KEMO city was known for the manufacture of hovercars, meeting the country's demands for transportation until 2022.
Over time, the crime rate had risen so far that the economy collapsed and the city descended into disorder. Criminals roamed the streets in armored hovercars, terrorizing the citizens without fear of retribution. In 2029, OmniCorp promised city officials that it could return it to normal; the offer was accepted, the corporation began the construction of a massive wall around the city under the guise of a "defensive measure". The wall was completed three years and the only exit sealed shut, turning KEMO into a massive prison city for all inside, criminal or otherwise; the outraged population reacted violently, the city degenerated. Ten years OmniCorp decided to test the behavior altering chemical Hydergine 344 on the population of KEMO; this chemical was distributed through the city's water supply. OmniCorp failed to predict the chemical's reaction to stagnant water, resulting in massive brain damage and insanity in the many citizens. More than half the population became crazed killers overnight.
Drake Edgewater, a 21st-century cab driver and one of the lucky few unaffected by the spreading virus, is desperate to escape the city alive. Driving his'52 Checker hovercab armed with an assortment of headlight-mounted weaponry, he delivers passengers and packages for what money he can make to upgrade his vehicle and escape. Quarantine required a rather powerful system. One of the original ads in magazines for the game used the slogan "If you've got the ram, we've got the pedestrians." Quarantine, long before Grand Theft Auto III and other similar games, employed the drive-by shooting tactic of using the Uzi to shoot out from the side windows. The CD version features tracks from Australian alternative bands. You Am I – Berlin Chair The Fauves – The Driver Is You Custard – The Wahooti Fandango Smudge – Ingrown Godstar – Lie Down Forever Screamfeeder – Snail Trail The Daisygrinders – Uranium Watch Underground Lovers – Weak Will The Hellmenn – Whirlwind Crow – Yellow Beam Sidewinder – Now You Know The PlayStation and Sega Saturn versions were released in Japan under the names Hard Rock Cab and Death Throttle, respectively.
They are the same as the original PC version, but while they had enhanced floor and building texturing, they suffer from slowdown and pixelation. The essential textscreen information is translated to Japanese, though most text remains in English and the live action video is neither dubbed nor subtitled. Additionally, the PlayStation version features green blood censorship. Next Generation reviewed the PC version of the game, stating that "Plenty of new weapons and powerup items along with different mission options give the game long-term play potential. Bloody fun for budding psychotics."Reviewing the 3DO version, the four reviewers of Electronic Gaming Monthly were divided. They all concurred that the driving controls are subpar, but while three of them opined that Quarantine would appeal to a niche audience with its soundtrack and strange, tongue-in-cheek humor, the fourth declared it "Too warped for me." GamePro's reviewer predicted the game was "bound to gain cult status" and gave it a rave review, praising the usefulness of the four camera views, the high level of uncensored violence, the introductory FMV, the "macabre" backgrounds, the large selection of rock music tracks.
They noted that the driving controls are difficult but concluded that "Doom lovers looking to score more gore will dig this grim, futuristic escape saga". A reviewer for Next Generation commented that while the open world, open-ended structure is captivating, both it and the vehicle's controls have a steep learning curve which demands that the player spend considerable time learning the game before playing it, he concluded that "the game is on balance, once you get the hang of things, it's cool". A sequel, Quarantine II: Road Warrior, was released in 1995 for DOS. Quarantine at MobyGames Quarantine II: Road Warrior at MobyGames
Quarantine (Egan novel)
Quarantine is a hard science fiction novel by Greg Egan. Within a detective fiction framework, the novel explores the consequences of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, which Egan acknowledges was chosen more for its entertainment value than for its likelihood of being correct; the novel is set in the near future, after the solar system has been surrounded by an impenetrable shield known as the Bubble by an extraterrestrial civilization for unknown reasons. The Bubble permits no light to enter the solar system, as a consequence the stars can no longer be seen, causing widespread societal panic,'claustrophobia', terrorist action. Neural mods are common place, designed pathways in the brain that are created with engineered, programmable microorganisms to produce a variety of effects, such as implanting skillsets, altered states of awareness or, illegally and controlling thoughts; the narrator, contains a suite of tactical mods that allow him to suppress emotions and enhance tactical and analytical thought.
Nick is a private eye forced to quit the police force after the death of his wife, the trauma of which caused him to activate his emotional suppression mod, which further prompted him to purchase a mod that simulates the feeling of love and wellbeing of his wife still being alive, logically solving the problem of grief. Nick accepts a case to investigate Laura, a woman who has vanished from a psychiatric institute, after several instances of her escaping; the institute staff insist that short of walking through a wall, it should not have been possible to escape the previous times, though it comes to light that she was kidnapped in this instance. Investigation in New Hong Kong leads Nick to the group responsible, the Ensemble, but causes him to be captured. Nick is implanted by an illegal'Loyalty Mod', which causes him to earnestly and believe in the goals of the Ensemble. Nick is used as a security guard for the project the ensemble is working on, a new neural mod perfected by studying Laura.
This mod, called the Eigenstate Mod or'Eigenmod', allows the brain to consciously control the physical process, responsible for wave function collapse. This feature of neurology is present in several animal species, one of the researchers responsible for the mod, Po-kwai, suspects that the Bubble may exist because humanity may have been aggressively collapsing the wave functions of alien civilizations that did not have the ability to do so, causing them harm; when using the mod, the user becomes'Smeared', existing within a superposition of states therefore every possible set of actions they take being equally'real'. When one version of the user succeeds in whatever they want to do, they deactivate the mod, collapsing the eigenstates into that one subjective reality; this allows the mod to control probability to do anything, though raises questions of morality and philosophy to the narrator, who considers deactivating the mod equivalent to murdering the other real versions of the user. Nick meets a group of Ensemble members who like him are under the control of the Loyalty mod.
They explain to him that the loyalty mod only specifies their loyalty to Ensemble, but fails to specify what the ensemble is. Therefore, via logical argument, the group decides that as by definition the most loyal members of the ensemble, what the ensemble is is up to their personal interpretations; the Canon has Nick steal and apply the eigenstate mod to himself, which he uses for various purposes before meeting with a strangely coherent Laura after bypassing otherwise impregnable security with the mod. Laura explains that she is capable of smearing, that she is one of the aliens who created the Bubble; the true alien consists of an emergent being composed of all the eigenstates of Laura at once, that dies when she stops smearing, but captures a holographic representation of itself within her mind that rebuilds the alien mind when she begins smearing again. Laura explains that life on earth developed the ability to collapse wave functions by chance, which spread via pure natural selection.
As smeared intelligence cannot survive in a single, unique state of the universe, they erected the bubble, preventing humanity from seeing and thus deciding the state of anything outside it, while protecting humanity from the starkly alien nature of outside reality. Laura finishes by explaining her role as an observer, there to offer humanity a way to join the rest of the universe, if they choose to, she warns Nick of his Smeared self, which she describes as a child and unsure of its abilities, but, becoming aware that its goals do not align with that of Nick's, who she describes as a single cell to a much larger and much more alien Smeared Nick. A member of the canon uses the stolen eigenstate mod to cheat the production of engineered microbes that can install the mod into people, while acting and spreading like a disease would, so that he may spread the ability to smear to humanity and join the aliens in smeared reality. Nick is unsuccessful. Not long after, New Hong Kong begins to be filled with strange and impossible events, people changing faces, turning to glass or vanishing while holograms become real and the sky begins to rain blood.
Nick finds Po-kwai, both affirm that while they are not scared of what is coming, they are not ready for such an existence. Po-kwai postulates that this outcome was inevitable and not the fault of smeared Nick—that instead the smeared total of all of humanity tunneled into possibility. Humans around them begin to blur as the sme
