Yes all foreign, not in American films as the ones I provided. You had it backwards when you said he used that name for American films, when in fact he used that name in foreign films. He used Sergio Leone in the American fims.
My trailer was in English, and American English at that. It was clearly meant for use in the U.S.. Now the actual film was delayed here for a while due to the lawsuit. It was not released here until 1967. So for some "A Few Dollars More" was the first film they saw. Clint Eastwood became a star due to Fistful, and he was an international star first, where it was definitely released as being directed by Bob Robertson. I did assume the reason the names were changed was due to U.S. prejudice against Italian directors of westerns but I have found out that it was due to international prejudice against Italian directors of westerns.

Bed bug infestations have increased dramatically over the last 20 or 30 years due in part to travel, international commerce and pesticide resistance.

He wasn't talking about dominating in numbers. I see you have trouble reading context as well.
If you read my previous post you would see that I do not have that trouble at all. Plus also the numbers DO count as they are an indicator of the success of the organisms in question.

See, you view humans as the dominant species due to its ability to change the environment to suit our needs, like farmland, artificial lakes, cities, blah blah blah, etc. However you fail to remember that we humans are merely just another environment for bacteria to live in. Plus the more we change the environment only provides bacteria more opportunity to spread to even more areas. Heck even our reproduction produces more bacteria. And in case you were wondering about bacteria's ability to change its environment:

Once you get a cold and defeat it, your body has antigens or antibodies to that specific strain. The next cold you catch is a mutation or a different variety of the cold.
Different variety play a big role in there as well, not only mutations.
Yes, different variety of...

... more viruses?

Thought so. Yup. Pretty ubiquitous these things are, eh.

Some of 'em will kill you that fast after you show symptoms.

Ebola Zaire Mayinga. Fatality rate up to 90%.

Ebola Reston (yes, that's Reston, Virginia) pushed 100% among monkeys - AND it went airborne.

Here are your two trailers you posted.

Which one do you see in English? LMAO

Quoting out of wiki? Are you sure about those numbers? Look at the prokaryotes equipped w an axial proton motor and 4+Mb of DNA jumping right out of the primordial soup. Read what wiki states about this then look up what the Harvard studies state, that it took "billions" of years to "evolve" the motor. Problem is one side or the other forgot to move the billions goal posts, again.. many other uniform dating systems contradict the ages you quoted.

That's a different subject. I was replying to your post about the moon and tides remember?

We don't know how much dna early life had.
We don't know when the proton motor evolved.
There's 3 billion years between the earliest signs of life an animal life.
Do you understand just how long a billion years is?

I have read some estimates that place the death toll from that pandemic between 50 and 100 million world wide. That seems to show the violence inherent in the system. The flu was repressing us.

Airborne. Great. The worst we could expect.

Something like Naegleria fowleri has a incredibly high fatality rate, but low incidence do to confinement to warm, stagnant water. You can easily avoid contact, but if a microbe with that fatality rate got airborne, where would you run?

Huh. Seems I'm older than you are.

That pandemic killed up to 100 million people, about 5% of the world's population, everywhere.

Ah, the brain eater. That would be, yes, bad.

No, I'm not any sort of doctor - but I've been a naturalist my whole life, and curious about matters medical.

You think colds own us. LMAO. Yep they eradicate us.

Humans catch an average of 2-3 colds per year. You Don't live long enough to catch them all or you would be immune to them all.

Well over 200 viruses are implicated in the cause of the common cold.

And it is not much mutation at all. You see viral infections, that are what colds are, can't be treated with antibiotics, they just run their course and then you are immune to that strain.

Me too. I have been a naturalist since I was a kid I suppose.

I am interested in medical matters to some extent. Mainly as it relates to the development of antibiotic resistance by bacteria.

Once within the host, viruses can mutate.
