In China, a deadly strain of bird flu now easily infects ducks

Some ducks in China now carry a deadly strain of bird flu.

Highly pathogenic versions of H7N9 — a bird flu strain that’s proven particularly deadly to people — and H7N2 viruses have turned up in ducks in the Fujian province. These viruses replicate easily in the ducks and can kill them, researchers report September 27 in Cell Host & Microbe. The discovery is worrisome because the virus made the jump to ducks just ahead of efforts to eliminate H7N9 by vaccinating chickens.

Since science is based on facts and religion is based on hope what is the bible based on? I know! The most contributions put forth by Fox News.

Orangutans spontaneously bend straight wires into hooks to fish for food
Date:
November 8, 2018
Source:
University of Vienna
Summary:
Cognitive biologists and comparative psychologists have just studied hook tool making in a non-human primate species -- the orangutan. To the researchers' surprise the apes spontaneously manufactured hook tools out of straight wire within the very first trial and in a second task unbent curved wire to make a straight tool.

The bending of a hook into wire to fish for the handle of a basket is surprisingly challenging for young children under eight years of age. Now cognitive biologists and comparative psychologists from the University of Vienna, the University of St Andrews and the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna working with Isabelle Laumer and Alice Auersperg studied hook tool making for the first time in a non-human primate species -- the orangutan. To the researchers' surprise the apes spontaneously manufactured hook tools out of straight wire within the very first trial and in a second task unbent curved wire to make a straight tool.

not a bad idea to check though. where could those threads have gone? inquiring minds would like to know.

Especially since this is probably the most innocent part of the forum!

What's going on?

The Free Will thread is also gone.

Is Abe censoring free will?

Is Abe censoring the idea that free will is an illusion?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Gigantic mammal 'cousin' discovered
Date:
November 23, 2018
Source:
Uppsala University
Summary:
During the Triassic period (252-201 million years ago) mammal-like reptiles called therapsids co-existed with ancestors to dinosaurs, crocodiles, mammals, pterosaurs, turtles, frogs, and lizards. One group of therapsids are the dicynodonts. Researchers have discovered fossils from a new genus of gigantic dicynodont. The new species is called Lisowicia bojani.
