With the spread of H9N7 avian flu in mainland China, let's keep in mind that there's little (if any) evidence to suggest traditional Chinese remedies, such as "ban lan gan", is an effective treatment or preventative option.

Best precautions so far remains practicing proper hand hygiene and staying away from livestock.

Honestly it'd be "quite a few", considering how many people die from standard flu under 'normal circumstances' anyway. However, keep in mind that likes of H5N1 are considerably more potent killers than standard Influenza viruses, hence the concern over it and H9N7 currently.

A stunningly irrational and outrageous encounter with an anti-feminist "atheist" who believes rape victims deserves being raped. Recommend all to check this out - the article gives a nice insight to what feminism and atheism is about, too.

...I don't even understand what you're trying to say. What exactly is the definition of rape then?

Organism of the Day #animals #animalsrule

The Ursus malayanus, commonly known as the Sun bear, is a species of bear found in the southern parts of Asia. Alongside their distinctive yellow-orange marking on their chests, sun bears are also the smallest species in the bear family, with males reaching a weight of 70 kg and females reaching one of 40 kg. However, they do have a very long tongue (of up to around 25 cm) used for extracting honey from beehives.

Unlike many other species of bears, sun bears do not hibernate and hence reproduces around the year. They are also mainly nocturnal and resides on trees, and although they are omnivorous sun bears feed on much smaller prey than other bears, primarily small invertebrates and insects.

Despite their small size, they are known to be quite fierce creatures and therefore have little predators. If they were to be preyed upon, such as by their larger cousins the Asiatic black bear, the loose skin around the sun bear's neck allows them to turn around and bite the predator if needed.

Today sun bears are classified as vulnerable in their conservation status, due to a reputation of being a nuisance to human populations and unfortunately being targetted to obtain bile for Chinese medicine.

PSA: Following Megaupload's takedown by the US Department of Justice earlier, a number of sites have been spotted which claim that they are Megaupload on a new domain. These sites are phishing or fraudulent sites - take caution when accessing and using them.

Great little shop; 'The Chicken' is a particularly nice pizza selection

Authentic and great-tasting Japanese cuisine at affordable prices. Seating was rather limited though and large groups of more than 4 might have to suffer rather long waiting times during peak hours.

The restaurant is a good choice for some French-style refreshments such as baguettes. However, lately the selection of a la cartel dishes have been shrinking, with costs increasing and rather meager portion sizes.
