The number of Ebola cases recorded each day in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has doubled, indicating that it may spread to other regions and other countries.

According to Jean-Philippe Marcoux, country directory for Mercy Corps in DRC, “Now it’s doubling – it’s very possible that it can double again. If we don’t significantly increase the resources, it will keep increasing. It will spread progressively to other health areas and it will be there for a long time.”

If this doubling continues, it would represent exponential growth.

Aussie astronomer busts alien controversial alien theory

Australia’s star astronomer has debunked a Harvard professor’s theory that we’re not alone.

Harvard University astronomy department chair Avi Loeb believes there could be so many civilisations out there that “as soon as we leave the solar system, we will see a great deal of traffic out there”.

But Associate Professor Alan Duffy is among critics who has shot down Professor Loeb’s out-there claims.



believes an interstellar object that passed through our solar system in late October 2017 could have been an alien probe.

He’s talking about “Oumuamua”, which translated from Hawaiian means “messenger sent from the distant past”.

Prof Loeb vs. Professor Alan Duffy??

Measles outbreak grows in area with low vaccination rate, most patients unimmunized

A measles outbreak in southwestern Washington state has grown to 16 confirmed cases, and most of the children affected are unimmunized against the disease, officials said Thursday.

A Clark County Public Health release says officials have been tracking the outbreak since Jan. 1. Of the 16 confirmed cases, 13 of the cases are children under the age of 11, officials say.

Only two of the children have an unverified immunization status; the other 14 are unimmunized, officials say.

Indonesian fisherman has GPS coordinates of MH370 location to Malaysian authorities

It remains one of the greatest aviation mysteries of all time but now an Indonesian man has come forward saying he saw exactly where MH370 went down.

MH370 investigators have been handed new information from a fisherman who claims to know where the doomed aircraft went down.

Indonesian Rusli Khusmin said his crew witnessed the disaster on March 8, 2014, watching the Malaysia Airlines flight with 239 people on board “move like a broken kite”.

The 42-year-old said there was no noise, just smoke, and he recorded the coordinates of the exact location the plane went into the water.

Anti-vax movement among top 10 global health threats for 2019, World Health Organization says


The anti-vaccination movement made the list of the World Health Organization's top threats to global health in 2019. The organization said some people's reluctance or refusal to vaccinate threatens to reverse progress made against a host of preventable diseases.

"Vaccination is one of the most cost-effective ways of avoiding disease — it currently prevents 2-3 million deaths a year, and a further 1.5 million could be avoided if global coverage of vaccinations improved," WHO said in a statement.

New atom smasher would be world's biggest by far
The proposed particle collider would be four times bigger and 10 times more powerful than the biggest particle
collider now in existence.

Seven years after experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) — the world’s largest atom smasher — confirmed the existence of a mysterious subatomic particle known as the Higgs boson, physicists have drawn up plans to build an even bigger collider.

The Future Circular Collider (FCC) would be four times bigger and up to 10 times more powerful than the LHC, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (better known by its French acronym, CERN) announced in a report on Tuesday. An international consortium of 23 member nations, CERN operates the Large Hadron Collider and would run the FCC as well.

Trump Administration Throws Down Gauntlet On Drug Prices

Another new year, another set of announcements by the pharmaceutical industry regarding price increases for prescription drugs. Much to the annoyance of the Trump Administration the pharmaceutical industry keeps raising list prices of drugs. At present, without the ability to institute direct price controls, there's little the Administration or Congress can do to rein in list prices. The Trump Administration has made it clear, however, that it won't tolerate business as usual. And, legislators on both sides of the aisle appear to be similarly inclined.
