Yemen faces world's worst cholera outbreak - UN


Yemen is now facing the worst cholera outbreak anywhere in the world, the United Nations has warned.

A statement by Unicef and the World Health Organization says the number of suspected cholera cases in the war-torn country has exceeded 200,000.

So far more than 1,300 people have died - one quarter of them children - with the death toll expected to rise.

The two UN agencies say they are doing everything they can to stop the outbreak from accelerating.

"We are now facing the worst cholera outbreak in the world," the statement says.

"In just two months, cholera has spread to almost every governorate of this war-torn country," it says, with an estimated 5,000 new cases every day.

I'm still go for Surgery on the 27th, My outage will at least be cool. I was informed I might be held overnight until the 28th, it depends on how I am after surgery I gather. And I only need to be there at 7:30am, not 7am or even 6:30am like I'd been told before.


You will be in my thoughts and prayers, Vic.

London Underground steps up cleaning regime to tackle superbugs


Industrial vacuum cleaners and magnetic wands will be used in a bid to rid the tube network of eight of the most dangerous superbugs.

Cleaning of the London Underground will be stepped up each night over the summer to remove metal particles, dust, oil and grease from about 50 stations and five tunnels.

An investigation published last month by London Metropolitan University and taxi insurers Staveley Head found 121 types of bacteria and mould on public transport in the capital.

Eight of the most threatening bacteria to human health were discovered on the tube, with the Victoria line deemed the dirtiest route.

Ebola virus burial teams may have 'saved thousands of lives'



They were ordinary people doing an extraordinary job in extremely dangerous times.

Now new research suggests Red Cross volunteers who helped bury most of the bodies of Ebola victims in West Africa could have prevented more than 10,000 cases of the deadly disease.

More than 28,000 people were infected with Ebola in 2014-2015. Of those, 11,310 people died.

The worst affected countries were Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

A major part of the response was ensuring the safe burials of people who had died of Ebola. The bodies of victims were particularly toxic.

I'm thinking along the lines of Comet Shoemaker–Levy 9. Earth would have been extinct. Thanks Jupiter. :)

One day earth will get pounded by an asteroid/comet. The universe is so big with rocks/comets in/out of orbit. we can't deflect all of them.

Danger map reveals health threat zone



South America is a hotbed of potential viruses that could be the next major threat to the world's health, according to "danger maps".

The EcoHealth Alliance in New York looked at mammals, the viruses they harbour and how they come into contact with people.

It revealed bats carry more potential threats than other mammals.

The researchers hope the knowledge could be used to prevent the next HIV, Ebola or flu.

Some of the most worrying infections have made the jump from animals to people - the world's largest Ebola outbreak seemed to start in bats, while HIV came from chimpanzees.

Updated Kepler catalog contains 219 new exoplanet candidates


Scientists have published a catalog of exoplanet discoveries made by NASA’s Kepler space telescope, identifying 219 previously-unknown planet candidates circling stars elsewhere in the galaxy, including 10 would-be worlds that appear to be about the same size of Earth with temperatures potentially hospitable for life.

Culling data collected during the first four years of Kepler’s mission, researchers used computers to pick out and analyze signals from stars that could be have caused by nearby planets. Automated software identified the detections most likely to be real worlds, according to Susan Thompson, a Kepler research scientist at the SETI Institute and NASA’s Ames Research Center who led the cataloging effort.

“This is the last search that we performed, and we used our most improved techniques, and with that we found 4,034 candidates, which include 10 new terrestrial-sized candidates in the habitable zone of their star,” Thompson said.

Could asteroids bombard the Earth to cause a mass extinction in 10 million years?


Scientists have spent decades debating whether asteroids and comets hit the Earth at regular intervals. At the same time, a few studies have found evidence that the large extinction events on Earth – such as the one that wiped out the dinosaurs 66m years ago – repeat themselves every 26m to 30m years. Given that there's good evidence that an asteroid triggered the dinosaur extinction, it makes sense to ask whether showers of asteroids could be to blame for regular extinction events.

The question is extremely important – if we could prove that this is the case, then we might be able to predict and even prevent asteroids causing mass extinctions in the future. We have tried to find out the answer.

Is our time here on earth up??
