A new strain of avian flu that jumped from birds to mammals is responsible for the death of more than 160 seals off the New England coast last year, scientists announced Tuesday. The virus could theoretically pose a threat to human health, they said. Harbor seals — most of them babies less than 6 months old — began appearing with severe pneumonia and skin lesions in September of last year, the researchers said. Over the next few months, at least 162 dead seals were recovered along the coast from Maine to Massachusetts, they said. Mutant bird flu would be airborne, scientists say. Testing pointed at a new strain of the H3N8 flu virus being called seal H3N8.“When initial tests revealed an avian influenza virus, we asked the obvious question: How did this virus jump from birds to seals?” lead researcher Simon Anthony of Columbia University said. The virus developed the ability to attack mammalian respiratory tracts, scientists learned. It may also have developed enhanced virulence and transmission in mammals, they said, but they need to do more tests to be sure. Avian flu has spread to humans before, most notably H1N1 and H5N1, so the new strain could pose a threat to public health, scientists warned.“HIV/AIDS, SARS, West Nile, Nipah and influenza are all examples of emerging infectious diseases that originated in animals,” said W. Ian Lipkin, director of the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University.“Any outbreak of disease in domestic animals or wildlife, while an immediate threat to wildlife conservation, must also be considered potentially hazardous to humans,’ he said. The research is published in the journal mBio

That is very interesting Mingo. My father was born during the last bird-flu epidemic and seemed to be immune to "getting sick". I cannot remember an instance when he was in the bed sick, up until he passed a couple of years ago at the age of 92. It is possible that a natural selection process is constantly weeding out those not having immunity, leaving stronger species to survive.

Unfortunately, hanging someone will not bring back the loved ones lost to acts of murder. The hangings were discontinued after articles were written in Chicago newspapers, among others, describing the carnival-like atmosphere during the last public hanging in Owensboro, Ky., 1936
I remember my grandmother tell us about when the towns men would drag a person who did bad things to other people or mistreat their families out of their house in the middle of the night and tie them to a tree. Then they would shave their heads and pour tar on them and cover them with feathers before they let them go. Don't know if that was true, but she told it as thou it was.
If that didn't change them, the next would some town men with faces covered with pillow cases {not kkk} and would catch them and use a switch and whip them good with it. I don't know what they did after that.

I agree.Let's just hope mankind isn't upsetting the balance.Mother nature always finds a way to weed out the weak and the threats to the delicate balance of earth.I do see a dramatic change coming.A new age?I hope I live long enough to see what becomes of all this turmoil across the globe.Will we go out with a bang or a whimper?Or will mankind come to it's senses and advance into a better being?

Speaking as a casual observer of an otherwise boring spectacle, I'd just like to remind you that NBC is carrying the coverage, so that may explain the politicism of the coverage. They experienced a glitch, just last night, as a matter of fact. The Chinese badminton team, as well as a few other badminton teams, cheated and conspired to lose their respective games on purpose. This was so that they could drop to the next bracket, in order to avoid having to play better teams. The two hour glitch occurred when no one at NBC could find a way to blame it on George W. Bush. Finally, in desperation over "dead air," NBC was forced to do something totally foreign to them..... tell the truth.
I bet they choked on it. OH, from my lips, to God's ears. LOL!

Nightriders. Nowadays,some folks deserve a lot worse treatment than what they are getting, for instance, the shooter in Colorado. Not much use in feeding him for 20 years waiting for lethal injection. He should be turned over to the survivors for punishment...of their own discretion.

If you go back 50-60 years in rural areas it would of take a considerable amount of time to get a lawman when you need one. In the old days communites would often have a secret group of vigilante minded ol boys that would take that wife beater or theif and make it clear to him that his actions were not acceptable, and there was plenty more of what they just dealt to him if these actions continued. Personally I think we need this even more today when the legal system fails. This is what the kkk began as, but it got out of hand and misquided quickly turning into something bad.

True, a man caught with another mans wife or someone that testified against a moonshiner sometimes just disappeared hempburn.

I recall so many old things, that my great grandparents talked about. I am not really , really old , but do so wish to have lived in those days. The days when a man took care of you and nothing could harm you or your home. As you all said , back then when someone came to your home , and started something , then you handled it and that was that. My grandfather, use to be a law, and one night he went to a home , where a abuisve husband killed his wife, kids and then himself. That never left my grandfather. Why could he just not have taken his own life? See he was so called so much in love with her, that she could never leave. So sad, I dont think that was ever love. If you really love someone , you want them to be happy even if it is not with you.
