Governor: 4 new Zika cases likely came from Fla. mosquitoes

Four people infected with Zika in South Florida likely contracted the virus from local mosquitoes, marking the first time the disease has been transmitted by the insects in the continental U.S., Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Friday.

Can dark matter be in surrounding black holes?
Black holes pulls in matter. Maybe why it can't be detected.

Chorus of Black Holes Sings in X-Rays


The blue dots in this field of galaxies, known as the COSMOS field, show galaxies that contain supermassive black holes emitting high-energy X-rays.


Supermassive black holes in the universe are like a raucous choir singing in the language of X-rays. When black holes pull in surrounding matter, they let out powerful X-ray bursts. This song of X-rays, coming from a chorus of millions of black holes, fills the entire sky -- a phenomenon astronomers call the cosmic X-ray background.

NASA's Chandra mission has managed to pinpoint many of the so-called active black holes contributing to this X-ray background, but the ones that let out high-energy X-rays -- those with the highest-pitched "voices" -- have remained elusive.

Bernie Sanders Leaves the Democratic Party

The nomination was barely sealed up at the Democratic National Convention before Bernie Sanders, who had campaigned against Hillary Clinton for the party’s nod, went back to being an Independent.

Florida investigates four mysterious Zika infections

Health officials in Florida are investigating four cases of Zika that do not appear to be related to travel.

So far cases outside of Latin America and the Caribbean, where the virus is prevalent, have been spread by travel to that region or sexual transmission.

The four Florida cases have raised the possibility that mosquitoes in the US have begun to carry the virus.

Zika causes only a mild illness in most people but the virus has been linked to severe brain defects in newborns.

New antibiotic, found in the nose, could treat deadly infections

It's not often that something really useful comes out of your nose.

Yet German scientists credit bacteria in the humble human schnoz with producing an antibiotic that appears powerful enough to kill dangerous skin infections.

The antibiotic is produced by a type of staph bacteria found in about 10% of people's noses, according to a study published online Thursday in Nature.

Interesting.

NASA to Map the Surface of an Asteroid


NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft will launch September 2016 and travel to a near-Earth asteroid known as Bennu to harvest a sample of surface material and return it to Earth for study. The science team will be looking for something special. Ideally, the sample will come from a region in which the building blocks of life may be found.

To identify these regions on Bennu, the Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security-Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx) team equipped the spacecraft with an instrument that will measure the spectral signatures of Bennu’s mineralogical and molecular components.

Any Kind of Sex Can Spread Zika, CDC Says in Updated Guidance


Any kind of sex can spread the Zika virus, federal health officials said Monday in updated guidance for pregnant women.

And doctors need to ask all pregnant women about any chance they could have been infected with Zika, either through sex, travel or via mosquito bite, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in updated Zika guidelines.

Why Kenya must be on the alert for an Ebola outbreak

Marsabit County could be at risk from the Ebola virus transmitted to humans from animals because the county is “environmentally suitable for Ebola transmission by bats”, scientists say.

The region which is located in the north of Kenya, has the appropriate “nature, dense vegetation and forested area for the Ebola virus,” Dr David Pigott, a researcher at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, Seattle, told Nation Newsplex.

Hepatitis C virus infection is the lead killer in US, CDC

Hepatitis C infection is the most common blood-borne infection in the United States, affecting approximately three million people according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
We have known for a long time that hepatitis C virus infection is a major cause of death in the United States; in fact, we now have evidence from the CDC that, among infectious diseases, it is the lead killer.
