Ebola unlikely to become airborne

It’s incredibly unlikely that Ebola would mutate to spread through the
air, and the best way to make sure it doesn’t is to stop the epidemic, a
top government scientist told concerned lawmakers Wednesday. “A virus
that doesn’t replicate, doesn’t mutate,” Dr. Anthony Fauci of the
National Institutes of Health told a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee.

How to Survive the Dog Days of Summer— #Survival Tips for Your Canine

When we hear the phrase “dog days of summer” many of us often think of record heat and sweltering (more…)

Listen up children, this stuff’s important.

A colleague of mine lost a dog after going on a walk with it on a hot day. It just dropped, apparently a victim of the sun and heat.

Woman Found Functioning Without A Cerebellum In Her Brain

I see your missing cerebellum and I raise you the man with 75% of his brain missing.

http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn12301-man-with-tiny-brain-shocks-doctors.html

Intelligence tests showed the man had an IQ of 75, below the average score of 100 but not considered mentally retarded or disabled.

"The whole brain was reduced - frontal, parietal, temporal and occipital lobes - on both left and right sides. These regions control motion, sensibility, language, vision, audition, and emotional and cognitive functions,"

What We’re Afraid to Say About Ebola

The second possibility is one that virologists are loath to discuss openly but are definitely considering in private: that an Ebola virus could mutate to become transmissible through the air. You can now get Ebola only through direct contact with bodily fluids. But viruses like Ebola are notoriously sloppy in replicating, meaning the virus entering one person may be genetically different from the virus entering the next. The current Ebola virus’s hyper-evolution is unprecedented; there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1,000 years. Each new infection represents trillions of throws of the genetic dice.
