Pigs declared war. So, be caution!
Here, I have post some information about Swine Flu. I simply copy and paste from msnbc.
A new strain of swine flu that has killed 149 and sickened nearly 2,000 in Mexico has spread to the United States and is raising fears of a possible pandemic. Learn more about the disease and why it is causing concern among health officials.
What is it?
Swine influenza is a respiratory disease of pigs first isolated in swine in 1930, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The illness is caused by four different type A influenza strains that can cause outbreaks in pigs, though subtypes H1N1 and H3N2 seem to be more common. The death rate among pigs is low, with most infections occurring in the late fall and winter.
Symptoms of infected pigs include fever, depression, coughing (barking), sneezing, difficulty breathing, red or inflamed eyes, lack of appetite and discharge from the nose or eyes.How do people get infected?
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms are similar to those of the regular human influenza virus: fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Some who have been infected with the swine flu also reported having a runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
How is it diagnosed?
A respiratory specimen must be collected within the first four to five days of illness, when the infected person is most likely to be shedding the virus. However, some patients (such as children), may shed the virus for 10 days or longer, according to the CDC. Specimens must be sent to the CDC for laboratory testing in order to identify swine flu.
How is it treated?
Four antiviral drugs are licensed to treat the disease in the U.S.: amantadine, rimantadine, oseltamivir and zanamivir. Most of the viruses are susceptible to all four, but the CDC currently recommends oseltamivir or zanamivir to treat and prevent swine flu infections. The antivirals, which are prescription medicines, should be taken as soon as possible symptoms appear.
Tamiflu, the generic name for oseltamivir, appears to be effective against the new strain when taken early, says the CDC.
There is currently no human vaccine for swine flu, but the flu vaccine may provide some protection against the H3N2 strain, though not the H1N1 strain.

Vander Hoven, a psychologist from Netherlands, announced his new discovery about the effect of reading the Qur'an and repeating the word ALLAH both on patients and on normal persons. The Dutch professor confirms his discovery with studies and research applied on many patients over a period of three years.
Some of his patients were non-Muslims, others do not speak Arabic and were trained to pronounce the word "ALLAH" clearly; the result was great, particularly on those who suffer from dejection and tension. "Al Watan", a Saudi daily reported that the psychologist was quoted to say that Muslims who can read Arabic and who read the Qur'an regularly can protect themselves from psychological diseases.
The psychologist explained how each letter in the word "ALLAH" affects healing of psychological diseases. He pointed out in his research that pronouncing the first letter in the word "ALLAH" which is the letter (A), released from the respiratory system, controls breathing. He added that pronouncing the velar consonant (L) in the Arabic way, with the tongue touching slightly the upper part of the jaw producing a short pause and then repeating the same pause constantly, relaxes the aspiration. Also, pronouncing the last letter which is the letter (H) makes a contact between the lungs and the heart and in turn this contact controls the heart beat.
What is exciting in the study is that this psychologist is a non-Muslim, but interested in and searching for the secrets of the Holy Qur'an. Allah, The Great and Glorious, says, "We will show them Our signs in the universe and in their own selves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (Qur'an) is the truth." (Holy Qur'an 42:53)

So, you Think English is Easy?
Try to read these correctly the first time?
1) The bandage was wound around the wound.
2) The farm was used to produce produce.
3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse .
4) We must polish the Polish furniture.
5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.
6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present .
8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.
9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.
10) I did not object to the object.
11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.
12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.
13) They were too close to the door to close it.
14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.
15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.
16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.
17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail.
18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.
19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.
20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?
Let's face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg ineggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.
We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth?
One goose, 2 geese. One moose, 2 meese? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend?
If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English
speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell?
How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down; in which you fill in a form by filling it out; and in which, an alarm goes off by being on.
English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race; which, of course, is not a race at all!

Love affects hormones and brain chemicals
Italian researchers carried out tests on 12 men and 12 women who had fallen in love during the previous six months.
They found that men had lower levels of testosterone than normal, while the women had higher levels of the hormone than usual.
"Men, in some way, had become more like women, and women had become like men," Donatella Marazziti of the University of Pisa told New Scientist magazine.
"It's as if nature wants to eliminate what can be different in men and women, because it's more important to survive at this stage," she said.
'Love is blind'
The findings come as another study suggests that love may indeed be blind.
Researchers at University College London have discovered that being in love can affect key circuitry in the brain.
University of Edinburgh
They said the findings may explain why some people are often "blind" to their partner's faults.
Both studies add to the growing evidence that love can have a strange effect on the body.
Previous research by the Italian researchers, published in 1999, suggested falling in love played havoc with key chemicals in the brain.
They found that people who were in love had lower levels of serotonin.
In fact, their serotonin levels were found to be the same as people with obsessive compulsive disorder.
Speaking at the time, the researchers said the finding may explain why people who are in love can sometimes obsess about their partner.
Professor Gareth Leng of the University of Edinburgh is also carrying out research in this area.
"It's about understanding ourselves a little bit better," he told BBC News Online.
But Professor Leng said the research could one day lead to new treatments for people who are having relationship problems.
"We know that a very large proportion of adults do report dissatisfaction with bonding or sexual experience."I wouldn't rule out the possibility of some sort of therapeutics in the future," he said.
