So much peaceful news coming out of the Islamic world today. Thank goodness it has nothing to do with the religion of “use-whatever-means-you-can-to-terrorize-them” Islam, otherwise we’d all have real cause for concern …

The Extinction Protocol

August 2014AFRICA– For the first time, scientists have been able to follow the spread of an Ebola outbreak almost in real time, by sequencing the virus’ genome from people in Sierra Leone. The findings, published Thursday in the journal Science, offer new insights into how the outbreak started in West Africa and how fast the virus is mutating. An international team of researchers sequenced 99 Ebola genomes, with extremely high accuracy, from 78 people diagnosed with Ebola in Sierra Leone in June. The Ebola genome is incredibly simple. It has just seven genes. By comparison, we humans have about 20,000 genes. “In general, these viruses are amazing because they are these tiny things that can do a lot of damage,” says Pardis Sabeti, a computational biologist at Harvard University and the lead author of the study. Hidden inside Ebola’s tiny genome, she says, are clues to how…
