Just a study.

Zika can infect adult brain cells, not just fetal cells, study suggests

The more researchers learn about the Zika virus, the worse it seems.

A growing body of research has established that the virus can cause severe birth defects — most notably microcephaly, a condition characterized by an abnormally small head and often incomplete brain development. The virus also has been linked to cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome in adults, a rare autoimmune disorder that can result in paralysis and even death.

Malaria Might Help Some People Survive Ebola

Virologists cleaning up after the Ebola epidemic in West Africa say they've discovered something surprising and promising: People who had malaria when they caught Ebola were more likely to survive the deadly infection.

People infected with malaria when they caught Ebola were, on average, 20 percent less likely to die from their Ebola infections, the National Institutes of Health team reported.

Florida Keys Opposition Stalls Tests Of Genetically Altered Mosquitoes

The fight against the Zika virus has a new weapon: the genetically engineered mosquito. It's recently been approved by federal regulators and may soon be available in parts of the U.S. that are confronting the virus, like Puerto Rico and Miami.

The Florida Keys do not have a Zika problem at the moment, but on Aug. 5 the Food and Drug Administration approved trial releases of these mosquitoes in the Keys.

Viruses 'more dangerous in the morning'

Viruses are more dangerous when they infect their victims in the morning, a University of Cambridge study suggests.

The findings, published in PNAS, showed viruses were 10 times more successful if the infection started in the morning.

And the animal studies found that a disrupted body clock - caused by shift-work or jet lag - was always vulnerable to infection.

The researchers say the findings could lead to new ways of stopping pandemics.

Viruses - unlike bacteria or parasites - are completely dependent on hijacking the machinery inside cells in order to replicate.

But those cells change dramatically as part of a 24-hour pattern known as the body clock.

Texas Reports 1st U.S. Case of Zika From Travel to Another State



TUESDAY, Aug. 16, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- In what appears to be the first case of Zika infection traveling across state lines, Texas health officials report that a resident of that state who visited Miami recently has tested positive for the virus.

The unidentified traveler had returned from the area of Miami where local transmission of the mosquito-borne virus has been reported, and sought testing after becoming ill, state health officials said in a statement Monday.

Fifth Force??

UCI physicists confirm possible discovery of fifth force of nature

Irvine, Calif., August 15, 2016 – Recent findings indicating the possible discovery of a previously unknown subatomic particle may be evidence of a fifth fundamental force of nature, according to a paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters by theoretical physicists at the University of California, Irvine.

“If true, it’s revolutionary,” said Jonathan Feng, professor of physics & astronomy. “For decades, we’ve known of four fundamental forces: gravitation, electromagnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear forces. If confirmed by further experiments, this discovery of a possible fifth force would completely change our understanding of the universe, with consequences for the unification of forces and dark matter.”

Hillary Clinton FBI interview notes to be released to Congress

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are expected to receive notes from Hillary Clinton's interview with the FBI about her use of private email servers as secretary of state, CBS News has confirmed.

The FBI will turn over the notes to Congress in the next few days, and it could happen as early as Monday, an official told CBS. This comes after several Republicans requested the testimony.

New Outbreak Threatens Nigeria's Efforts to Eradicate Polio

In 2012 Nigeria accounted for more than half of all polio cases worldwide. Within three years – and after a rigorous immunization campaign involving more than 200 000 volunteers – the country was removed from the list of polio-endemic countries. Less than a year later two new cases of polio have been reported. This is a setback for a country that aimed to achieve polio free status by 2017. Professor Oyewale Tomori explains why Nigeria finds itself in this position.

Flooding might increase mosquitoes and Zika risk in Louisiana

The massive flooding across southeastern Louisiana over the weekend could bring an increased risk for the Zika virus after the waters recede, an expert in tropical medicine said Sunday.

Strong floodwaters often wash away mosquito eggs, which would be good news.

NASA's Fermi Mission Expands its Search for Dark Matter

Dark matter, the mysterious substance that constitutes most of the material universe, remains as elusive as ever. Although experiments on the ground and in space have yet to find a trace of dark matter, the results are helping scientists rule out some of the many theoretical possibilities. Three studies published earlier this year, using six or more years of data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, have broadened the mission's dark matter hunt using some novel approaches.

The universe has hidden the dark matter. Or, it never existed.

Exciting.

Earth-Like Planet Around Proxima Centauri Discovered


The hunt for exoplanets has been heating up in recent years. Since it began its mission in 2009, over four thousand exoplanet candidates have been discovered by the Kepler mission, several hundred of which have been confirmed to be “Earth-like” (i.e. terrestrial). And of these, some 216 planets have been shown to be both terrestrial and located within their parent star’s habitable zone (aka. “Goldilocks zone”).

But in what may prove to be the most exciting find to date, the German weekly Der Spiegel announced recently that astronomers have discovered an Earth-like planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, just 4.25 light-years away. Yes, in what is an apparent trifecta, this newly-discovered exoplanet is Earth-like, orbits within it’s sun’s habitable zone, and is within our reach. But is this too good to be true?

I will be completing in the Olympic miniature golf finals this afternoon, with my 14 year old. I will let you know if I see anything that looks like gold.

Have fun, Carlos!
