Your curry and your pancakes may be tainted. There’s only one thing to do


Between the lead in the curry and the possibility of salmonella from Publix, a pair of food recalls this week go straight to many South Florida kitchens.

Publix recalled the 16-ounce bags of three Premium Pancake & Waffle Mix flavors —pumpkin, blueberry-flavored, banana-flavored chocolate chip — because the milk powder used might contain salmonella. Publix says the milk powder supplier told the supermarket chain of the potential problem. Customers can return the mixes to stores for a full refund.

Dec 8 (Reuters) - An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.7 hit off the Solomon Islands at 1738 GMT on Thursday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The quake was initially reported to be of magnitude 8.0.

“Hazardous tsunami waves from this earthquake are possible within the next three hours along some coasts of Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Nauru, New Caledonia, Tuvalu and Kosrae,” the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

Smallest asteroid ever found: Tiny 6ft-wide 'bald' space rock is spotted just 79,500 miles from Earth's surface


Astronomers have spotted the smallest asteroid ever seen close to Earth.

The space rock is just 6ft (two metres) in diameter and is also one of the brightest near-Earth asteroids ever discovered, reflecting around 60 per cent of the sunlight that falls onto it.

The asteroid, named 2015 TC25, likely originated from a larger asteroid in the solar system and is one of the fastest asteroids ever discovered, rotating completely every two minutes.

New York City Has 5 Babies Born With Zika-Related Brain Issue

At least four babies have been born in New York City with Zika-related brain developmental symptoms since July, the city’s health department said on Wednesday, bringing the total number of such births to five.

The numbers were announced in an alert the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene sent to doctors, urging them to remain vigilant and to continue to warn pregnant women and sexually active women of reproductive age not using a reliable form of birth control against traveling to places where the virus is spreading.

The Tabby's Star may be dimming because an alien civilization is mining energy from its surface, a study has recently suggested. Don't think so.

Rare superbug found on pig farm — and no one knows how it got there

A “nightmare” superbug has been found on a US pig farm — and researchers haven’t figured out the source of the potentially deadly bacteria.

Researchers discovered a strain of bacteria resistant to a class of antibiotics called carbapenems, which are considered a last-resort treatment for hard-to-fight bacterial infections.

The superbug, clinically known as carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE), was found after researchers swabbed the floors and walls of the farm’s pens and collected fecal samples during a five-month period in 2015. Their frightening discovery was published Dec. 5 in the journal Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy.

Mumps Outbreaks Are Worst in a Decade


With a month still to go, 2016 is already the worst year for mumps outbreaks in a decade. Despite widespread vaccination requirements, college campuses are bearing the brunt of the attack as students live in close quarters and don’t always maintain the healthiest lifestyles.


As of Nov. 26, the latest date available, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had recorded 3,832 provisional mumps cases across 45 states and Washington, D.C. That’s nearly triple the 2015 total of 1,329 and the highest tally since 2006.
