We’re not prepared for future Ebola outbreaks, experts warn



Despite recent headlines declaring the success of an experimental Ebola vaccine, the world is not fully prepared for future epidemics — and not in position to use vaccines to prevent another deadly outbreak, a report published Tuesday warned.

The report raised serious concerns about the work that remains to be done on Ebola vaccines.

MH370: Search suspended but future hunt for missing plane not ruled out


Hong Kong (CNN)Officials involved in the arduous search for Malayasia Airlines Flight 370 won't rule out another hunt for the plane if "credible" evidence emerges, Australia's transport minister said Wednesday.

"It's not a closed book by any stretch," Darren Chester said at a news briefing in Melbourne. "I don't rule out a future underwater search."

Croatia to cull poultry near capital due to H5N8 bird flu


ZAGREB — Croatia said on Saturday it had detected H5N8 bird flu among ducks on a farm some 30 km (20 miles) southeast of the capital Zagreb. The Agriculture Ministry said in a statement that all the poultry on the affected farm would be culled, along with all poultry in non-intensive farming in a 3 km radius. "We're undertaking all the necessary measures to isolate the affected poultry that will have to be culled. The owners will be compensated. We're fighting this in the same manner as many other neighbouring countries," Agriculture Minister Tomislav Tolusic said. Two weeks ago there was a similar case on another farm in northeastern Croatia.

Astronomers just discovered a ‘Hot Jupiter,’ and it’s absolutely massive


Jupiter is the undisputed big dog in our solar system. It’s so huge that even if you took all the other planets in our solar system and combined them, Jupiter would still be two-and-a-half times bigger than that. So when astronomers announce that they’ve discovered a planet that’s a whopping 66 percent more massive than Jupiter, you have an idea of just how huge that is. But what’s particularly interesting about the newly-discovered alien world named “TAP 26 b” is that it’s not a frigid ball of gas like our Jupiter; it’s boiling hot.

China roast duck vendor dies of H7N9 bird flu: Xinhua


A roast duck vendor has died of bird flu in central China, the official Xinhua news agency said Saturday, the latest human casualty of the disease this winter.

The 36-year-old man, surnamed Zhang, passed away on January 11 in Yongcheng city of the central province of Henan, Xinhua cited the provincial health and family planning commission as saying.

He sold roast duck in the coastal province of Zhejiang before falling ill with fever and coughing just after Christmas, eventually returning to his hometown in early January.

Yongcheng city is monitoring the health of 16 people who have had close contact with Zhang.

US flu season picks up as European levels stay high


The US flu season picked up more steam last week, with rising flu indicators and the first three pediatric flu deaths reported, as many countries in Europe grapple with an early, busy flu season led by the H3N2 strain that poses a serious threat to seniors.

In its weekly update today, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said all 10 of its regions are above their baseline percentages of clinic visits for flulike illness for the first time, though the country as a whole has been above its national baseline for the marker for 4 straight weeks.

Rules of the game:

Winner posts a new picture, waits 24 hours...

After the 24 hours, he/she counts the number of captions, if the sum is less than ten, he/she waits another 24...

After ten captions or NO LATER THAN 48 hours, the winner of the last round declares the winner of the current round - whatever caption strikes him/her as funniest: he/she also picks a second and third place (more on that below)

The winner of the round has 24 hours to post another picture to be captioned; if no picture within the 24 hours, (or notice posted by the winner that he/she is looking...) then second place is up, who also has 24 hours...

During breaks in the action, (between a winner being declared and the next picture posted) general discussion may take place... Moderators should be aware that a picture posting may cross with a "general discussion" type posting.

(When considering run times above please take note of Tuesday's outage, and any other long communications blackouts)
