Carnival roars ahead in Brazil despite Zika health scare

The worst health scare in recent history is not keeping Brazilians from their annual Carnival revelry, with millions of partiers swarming streets and some making fun of the mosquito that spreads Zika and other viruses.

Street processions, block parties and the televised, big-budget parades that are the hallmark of the festival moved into their second day on Sunday, even as Brazilian health officials continued to grapple with an outbreak that may have infected as many as 1.5 million people and could be linked to suspected deformations in more than 4,000 infants and unborn children.

Colombia links Zika to rare nerve disorder deaths

Colombia says three people have died after contracting the Zika virus and developing a rare nerve disorder.

Health Minister Alejandro Gaviria said there was a "causal connection" between Zika, the Guillain-Barre disorder and the three deaths.

Earlier, Brazilian scientists said they had detected for the first time active samples of Zika in urine and saliva.

Brazil finds active Zika virus in urine, saliva

Paulo Gadelha said at a press conference on Friday that the virus' ability to infect other people through the two body fluids requires further study.

However, he noted that the discovery calls for special precaution to be taken with pregnant women. Brazilian researchers have pointed to a suspected link between pregnant women's infection with the virus and a rare birth defect in babies.

Why do you say this game is rigged? You either trust the people that run it from time to time or you don't. One way out of it is for each person that wins it should pm their chosen number to a Moderator, then they can't change it half way through to favour someone. That is of course if it is what you are thinking?

Sorry Chris, just joking.

Judge rules against Cosby, criminal trial will proceed

NORRISTOWN, Pa. — The criminal sexual-assault charges against Bill Cosby here will stand and will proceed to trial, a judge ruled Wednesday, after a two-day hearing

Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill had said he would rule earlier on Wednesday, but he decided after the lunch break he wanted to hear more testimony from Cosby's prosecutors, who are trying to persuade O'Neill not to toss the criminal charges against Cosby.

Sierra Leone frees 55 from Ebola quarantine, but seeks 48 others

Freetown (AFP) - Only four people remained in quarantine in Sierra Leone on Wednesday after 55 others were declared free of the Ebola virus and released from hospital, officials and medical sources said.

But medics were urgently seeking to contact around 50 others for testing, most of them from the northern town of Kambia, health ministry spokesman Harold Williams said.

Small one.

A small asteroid that two years ago flew past Earth at a comfortable distance of about 1.3 million miles (2 million kilometers) will safely fly by our planet again in a few weeks, though this time it may be much closer.

During the upcoming March 5 flyby, asteroid 2013 TX68 could fly past Earth as far out as 9 million miles (14 million kilometers) or as close as 11,000 miles (17,000 kilometers). The variation in possible closest approach distances is due to the wide range of possible trajectories for this object, since it was tracked for only a short time after discovery.
