Bird flu could mutate to become even more harmful to humans due to the ongoing unprecedented outbreak, experts fear.

Cases of the killer H5N1 strain, which are at record levels, have already jumped from birds to foxes, otters and mink.

It has sparked huge concern among top virologists that the deadly pathogen is now one step closer to spreading in humans — a hurdle which has so far stopped it from triggering a pandemic.

Susan Wojcicki, YouTube’s chief executive and one of the most prominent women in Silicon Valley, said on Thursday that she was stepping down from her longtime role leading the internet’s most popular video service.

 

Ms. Wojcicki’s departure ... adds to a lengthening list of women who have left senior roles at big Silicon Valley companies in recent years.

 

“Today, after nearly 25 years, I’ve decided to step back from my role and start a new chapter focused on my family, health and personal projects I’m passionate about,” Ms. Wojcicki wrote in a letter to employees, which was published on YouTube’s official blog.

 

Neal Mohan, the company’s chief product officer, will take over as chief executive.

I can't help but be suspicious about these high profile resignations. 

 

Regarding Sturgeon for example, there is no bloody way it's about trans etc, no more than BoJo was about party's ?

BIg tech have been subpoenaed in the USA, could be related to Wojcicki? I don't know.

I know Jacina Ardern stepping down is/was a good thing. I genuinely do not know anything about Sturgeon, which is weird considering she operates a lot closer to me than Ardern did.

The ubiquitous Katie Price has moved upmarket and is now featuring in the Guardian and not the Sun. Why? Allegedly, Harvey has been the butt of jokes shared by serving Met police officers on social media. I'm not defending the police because mocking the disabled is a wicked and boorish thing to do, but she does push the poor lad into the limelight doesn't she? It's a shame that poor Harvey can't live his life out of his mother's shadow.

I'm surprised she could find a boyfriend looking like that. What a freak.

"not treating the death as suspicious" 🤔

 

Body of man, 19, recovered from water at Willenhall Memorial Park

Quote

The body of a 19-year-old man has been recovered from a pool at a Willenhall park. The man's body was found in a pool at Willenhall Memorial Park, in Willenhall, after police attended at around 8am today (February 19).

West Midlands Police is not treating the death as suspicious, however the force has launched an investigation into the man's death. Parts of the park were cordoned off earlier this morning while emergency services attended the scene.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Police said: "We have recovered a body from a pool in Willenhall Memorial Park off Pinson Road, Willenhall today. At around 8am police officers along with other emergency services attended the location and sadly a body of a 19-year-old man was recovered.

Not suspicious, but needs an investigation? The police were also pretty quick to know who this person was and to contact their family.

Because animals are dirty and unclean, and nothing to do with the shit you force-feed your kids?

 

Zoo visitors urged to wash hands to avoid illness

Quote

People are being urged to practice correct hygiene when visiting petting farms and zoos during the half-term holiday, to avoid stomach bugs.

Hands should be washed, after contact with animals and especially before eating and drinking, the UK Health Security Agency West Midlands said.

Visitors may have touched fences or other surfaces in areas with animals.

Many animals could carry parasites and germs that could affect young children and pregnant women, the UKHSA stated.

Dr Roger Gajraj, West Midlands consultant in communicable disease control leading on gastro-intestinal infections for the agency, said hands should be washed thoroughly with soap and warm water.

"Thousands of people in the West Midlands region visit farm attractions each year, and while the number of people who become ill is proportionally quite small, many cases of illness could be avoided by practicing the correct hand hygiene," he said.

Went to pick my Mum up recently from some shitty hospital that gave her all sorts of infections during her stay, and this is what you're assaulted with everywhere in their car parks.
