New strain of flu in China has pandemic potential, scientists warns

Scientists have discovered a new strain of flu, descended from the swine flu. Now is this the bigger pandemic than COVID-19 some people have been warning about lately? Possibly, we’ll have to wait and see. But, right now, it’s not infecting people, and I think even if it does infect people and even if it’s not as contagious, it will, along with COVID-19, cause more people to urge others to treat both their environment and animals better.

Vigilance Is The Price We Pay

“We think we’ve come so far. Torture of heretics, burning of witches is all ancient history and then, before you can blink an eye, suddenly it threatens to start all over again.

Villains who twirl their mustaches are easy to spot. Those who clothe themselves in good deeds are well-camoflauged.

Someone like that will always be with us, waiting for the right climate in which to flourish. Spreading fear in the name of righteousness.

Vigilance, Mr. Worf. That’s the price we continually have to pay.”

-Jean-Luc Picard
