3) Message boards : SETI@home Science : The Universe Has Probably Hosted Many Alien Civilizations: Study (Message 1785050)
Posted 1 day ago by Profile LynnProject donor
Many other planets throughout the universe probably hosted intelligent life long before Earth did, a new study suggests.

The probability of a civilization developing on a potentially habitable alien planet would have to be less than one in 10 billion trillion — or one part in 10 to the 22nd power — for humanity to be the first technologically advanced species the cosmos has ever known, according to the study.

Take the quiz,and watch the video. :)

Even in the place where Zika virus was first discovered, its true origin is a mystery


Zika Forest, Uganda

The forest where Zika virus was first identified in 1947 is located near a swamp, 25 km (15 miles) away from the Ugandan capital, Kampala. A sign at the entrance reads: “Ziika [sic] Forest, Property of Uganda Virus Research Institute (UVRI).”


“See that platform there?” Julius Lutwama, the head of UVRI’s arbovirology department, asked. He was giving me a tour of the 25-hectare (62-acre) tropical forest and pointing at wooden platforms high up in the trees. “In 1947, when researchers were looking for yellow fever, they would put monkeys in cages on one of these platforms. Periodically, they would collect blood samples from them and analyze them. That’s when they isolated a new virus on a captive rhesus monkey, which was not yellow fever.”

This new virus was named Zika, after the forest.

Frozen Food Fears: 4 Things To Know About The Listeria Recall

Frozen vegetables are a staple in many diets, so a huge recall of them has us peering at the packages in our freezers.

On Tuesday evening, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced an outbreak of the deadly Listeria monocytogenes bacteria — and frozen vegetables and fruits are believed to be the cause.

More than 350 products like green beans, broccoli, peas and blueberries sold under 42 brands at grocers including Safeway, Costco and Trader Joe's in the U.S. and Canada have now been recalled.


The story does not say if the Company's involved have used raw materials from other country's . We have had problems with food posining in frozen food .

The fruit or veg was not grown here in Australia but imported and only packed here so I wonder if the same thing has happened . In our cases the food came from Asian Country's .


Maybe this will help. http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm498841.htm

Liberia: Why Is Liberia On Taiwan's Orange Alert? Resurrection of Ebola Stigma Fears

Monrovia — Months after being declared free of the deadly Ebola virus outbreak, Liberia, one of the West African nations hit hard by the deadly Ebola virus outbreak continues to suffer stigma.

Travel Warning Declaration Triggers Resurrection Of Ebola Stigma Fears

Citing possibilities that the virus could resurface in Liberia, Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) last Friday issued a yellow travel alert for Ghana, which it says is a possible target for terrorist attacks, while issuing an orange travel alert for Liberia and Sierra Leone amid signs of Ebola cases reemerging there.

The Other Zika Mosquito

After the virus itself, the main villain of the Zika outbreak has been the Aedes aegypti mosquito, its primary vector. These mosquitoes are sneaky, and resilient, as my colleague Adrienne LaFrance recently reported—able to breed in the smallest amounts of standing water, predisposed to bite people from behind when they’re not looking. You can imagine them swarming through packed cities, nipping people behind the knees, twirling their tiny mosquito-sized mustaches, and cackling as they fly away.
