  El Tor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
El Tor is the name given to a particular strain of Vibrio cholerae, the causative agent of cholera.
El Tor was identified again in an outbreak in 1937 but the pandemic did not arise until 1961 in Sulawesi.
El Tor also remains in the body for longer and survives better than other known types.

It was first identified in 1905 at a camp in El Tor, Egypt.
El Tor also remains in the body for longer and survives between than other known types.

 TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ - Noreply Wiki
Tor is open source, and you should always check the source (or at least the diffs since the last release) for suspicious things.
Tor is achieving this too: imagine one day down the road the Tor client GUI has a little "help China" button in the corner, which causes the clients to relay a few kilobytes per second for others.
Tor's default exit policy is chosen to be flexible and useful in the future: we allow everything except the specific addresses and ports that we anticipate will lead to problems.

 Goehring ’98 Examines Cholera Worldwide
El Tor was less severe and didn’t physically incapacitate its host, like the classical strain did, making the host capable of transferring the disease to others through means such as food preparation.
El Tor 0139 is now the more prevalent strain in that region.
But when other El Tor pathogens subsequently enter, the presence of oxygen in the gut signals to them that toxins are already being produced.

 Cholera in Mozambique, Variant of Vibrio cholerae | CDC EID
By using polymerase chain reaction (PCR), we established that all 40 strains carried the ctxA gene (constituent gene of the CTX prophage) and the tcpA gene (the El Tor type), a constituent gene of the vibrio pathogenicity island.
The CTX prophages in El Tor strains give rise to infectious phage particles (1), but neither of the two CTX prophages integrated at two different sites of the classical genome give rise to phage particles (4).
Genetic hybrids between El Tor and classical biotypes of O1 cholerae were reported among sporadic isolates earlier in Bangladesh (5) and were named the Matlab variants after the place where they were first isolated.

 Joaquín Sánchez 2004 1355
Strains of Vibrio cholerae El Tor and classical biotypes are causative agents of cholera, and both biotypes produce the virulence factor cholera toxin [CT], which is a powerful enterotoxin considered the main toxin responsible for the profuse loss of fluid that characterizes the disease.
In order to produce CT from the El Tor biotype, both for characterization of the toxin and for eventual use of the toxin in immunization, ways to induce the in vitro expression of the El Tor CT were investigated.
Then it was shown that the functionalities of the classical and El Tor TcpP and TcpH were not substantially different and thus that regulatory differences between the two biotypes were not due to the activity of these proteins butto their levels of expression [22, 23].

 Indian Journal of Medical Research: Re-emergence of El Tor vibrio in outbreak of cholera in & around Nagpur
Of the 455 stool specimens, V. cholerae was isolated in 198, Aeromonas in 2 and Plesiomonas in 3 specimens.
Of the 198 vibrio isolates, 152(76.8%) were V. cholerae (El Tor) Ogawa, 4 (2.02%) Hikojima, 3 (1.52%) Inaba and 39 (19.7%) NAG vibrios.
In conclusion, the present outbreak was due to V. cholerae El Tor which seems to have completely replaced O139 serogroup of the previous outbreaks during the last decade.

 Glastonbury Tor Maze, a book by Geofffrey Ashe
According to a theory put forward by Geoffrey Russell, they are the principal remains of a maze: not in the sense of a puzzle, but in the sense of a long, twisting, devious approach to a centre.
Made in the remote past for ritual purposes, it spirals round the Tor seven times, and ends - or may be supposed to end - at the summit where the tower now stands.
Philip Rahtz, who excavated the top of the Tor in 1964-6, said of Russell's idea: 'The argument is complex, but it is worth consideration.' And elsewhere: 'If the maze theory were demonstrated to be true, it would clearly be of the greatest relevance to the origins of Glastonbury as a religious centre.'

A wealth of myth suggests that the Tor was a major centre of Goddess worship; prominent hills such as the Tor were often revered as her seats.
The Tor is said to lie on the great St Michael's Ley, which runs from St Michael's Mount through several major pagan ritual centres.
By walking the lines of the labyrinth up Glastonbury Tor, worshippers would have finally reached the symbolic centre at its summit, where the Goddess was believed to reside.

Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 (Woody) with a 2.4.18 Debian kernel, but it should be applicable to other Tor versions and most of it will be the same for other Linux distributions.
Running the install within the chroot would be difficult since I would need to install a shell and other commands the makefile used, so I ran it outside, but set the install-time prefix to be different than the runtime prefix.
Another way to compile tor is using special flags to reduce liability on libraries ; however be aware that if another vulnerability comes out in SSL, once you have upgraded SSL you will need to recompile tor.

 February 16, 1996 - On the Quad
By knocking out the genes responsible for El Tor's virulence, and by ingeniously tinkering with the bacteria's ability to swim in the intestine, they have crafted a new decoy strain of El Tor vibrio, one that can provoke an immune response without causing cholera.
Researchers suspected that the El Tor vibrio, which was causing outbreaks in Africa and Europe, was also producing the virulent toxin.
Having discovered the first of El Tor's weapons, Mekalanos' next discovery-of a master gene controlling the expression of cholera toxin-was spurred on by a curious result.
