Russian billionaire Yuri Milner says if the space rock 'Oumuamua is giving off radio signals, his team will be able to detect them—and they may get the results within days.

The email about “a most peculiar object” in the solar system arrived in Yuri Milner’s inbox last week.

Milner, the Russian billionaire behind Breakthrough Listen, a $100 million search for intelligent extraterrestrial life, had already heard about the peculiar object. ‘Oumuamua barreled into view in October, the first interstellar object seen in our solar system.

Astronomers around the world chased after the mysterious space rock with their telescopes, collecting as much data as they could as it sped away. Their observations revealed a truly unusual object with puzzling properties. Scientists have long predicted an interstellar visitor would someday coast into our corner of the universe, but not something like this.

'Tis the season for hugs, kisses, handshakes and pushing lots of shopping carts.

Preparing for the holidays, we hit up restaurants, school programs and company gatherings where large crowds gather. And those contacts with lots of people make it open season for coming down with colds, the flu and other nasty germs.

As often as we clean our houses and remind our children to wash their hands, none of us are immune to sickness.

This past week, my 14-year-old son came home from school with a high fever and a stomach bug. I am afraid of catching any type of illness, so I diligently disinfected all of the sinks, toilets and door handles. Unfortunately, my husband and I both fell victim to the crud.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) promote frequent hand washing. If soap and water are not available, it's recommended that you use a hand sanitizer with an alcohol volume of 60 percent to 95 percent.

To avoid getting sick, the CDC recommends that you:

-- Get a flu vaccine. Vaccines protect against the viruses that research suggests will be the most common.

-- Control germs. Avoid contact with sick people. If you are sick, stay home and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. If you have a fever, you shouldn’t be around people. Stay home until the fever has broken.

-- Take antiviral medicines and vitamins. If you get the flu, prescription antiviral drugs — which are different from antibiotics — may shorten the length of your illness. Antivirals also may prevent complications from the flu, and help to avoid a hospital stay. A multivitamin and an extra dose of vitamin C may help shorten a viral illness, too.

About 150 students at Hanks High School in the Ysleta Independent School District may have been exposed to tuberculosis, city health officials said Thursday.

The city’s Department of Public Health is investigating the possible exposure believed to have been caused by students coming into close contact with someone who had an active case of TB.

The health department will be sending letters to parents, informing them that their children may have been exposed.

Flu cases this year have doubled those from last year, validating experts' fears that this season could be particularly bad.

Between Oct. 1 and Nov. 25, 5,070 clinical lab tests were positive for the flu, up from 2,510 in the same period last year, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The number of Americans who have contracted the illness is likely even greater, an agency spokeswoman cautioned, since most people don't go to the doctor and get tested.

The Philippines has launched an investigation into the immunisation of 730,000 children with a dengue vaccine that could pose health risks.

Last week French drug company Sanofi announced its vaccine could worsen the potentially deadly disease in people not previously infected.

The public immunisation programme was suspended on Friday.

Dengue fever affects more than 400 million people each year around the world.

The mosquito-borne disease is a leading cause of serious illness and death among children in some Asian and Latin American countries, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Sanofi's Dengvaxia is the first-ever approved dengue vaccine. In addition to the Philippines, the company said the vaccine was registered in Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, Cambodia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Singapore, Thailand and Venezuela.

The vaccine has also been used in a public immunisation programme in Brazil which, combined with the Philippines scheme, has to date provided around one million people at least one dose of drug.
