Avian flu may skip winged transportation for road transportation

I recently got turned on to a great new Science blog aggregator.

Grrlscientist at Living the Scientific Life frequently collects and blogs a series of wonderfully clear and interesting essays by scientists, called the Tangled Bank.

In the latest issue (49th), I came across her striking essay on the avian flu propagation pattern.

While she uses a report by GRAIN, an NGO who has a clear beef (pardon the pun) with large scale farming, the arguments are clear, plausible and rather convincing.

An examination of the pattern of avian flu spread was found to poorly match known migratory patterns of wild birds, and could instead be much more easily explained by animal shipments of the commercial poultry industry.

A further examination of some of the salient outbreak points seems to correlate much better with the presence of intensive poultry farms than with any migratory pattern of birds.

Finally the article points out that backyard chicken, free-ranging animals with a much higher genetic diversity than mass-raised chickens, are not likely vectors of the disease.

Go read the entire essay here.

In the meantime I'll wait to see whether this analysis somehow finds it way into Nature or Science.

My agony was at length insufferable, and I awoke just in timeto perceive that a rat had run off with the lighted candle from thestand, but not in season to prevent his handy betreiberlogos klingelto making his escape with itthrough the hole, Very soon a strong, suffocating odor assailed mynostrils; the house, I clearly perceived, was on fire.

When Gideon wason the stage, japan girl bilder Stuhk used to enjoy peeping out at the intent, smilingfaces of the audience, where men and women and children, hardenedtheater-goers and folk fresh from the country, sat with moving lipsand faces lit with an eager interest and sympathy for the black manstrutting in loose-footed vivacity before them.If the chain of associations befollowed ledergirls up which proceeds from one element of the dream one is soon ledback to another of its elements.The answer was duly placed, and as duly carried to MissBangle by her accomplice, Joe back xxx Englehart, an unlucky pickle who wasalways for ill, never for good, and who found no difficulty inobtaining the letter unwatched, since the master was obliged to be inschool at nine, and Joe could always linger a few minutes later.Here, too, we are certainly dealing with the incomprehensible andrejected sexual feelings, which, if noted, would probably show atemporal periodicity, for an enhancement of the sexual libido mayjust as well be produced accidentally through emotional impressions asthrough the spontaneous and gradual indiscretas processes of development.
