Nice Robin, I have a S&W MP AR10 with 4 -25 round mags loaded, I'm ready. Lot's of tourists coming down driveway even though I have 4 Private drive, no trespassing signs , next I will fall a tree.

The 2002–3 pandemic caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) was

one of the most significant public health events in recent history.

An ongoing outbreak of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus suggests that this group of viruses

remains a key threat and that their distribution is wider than previously recognized.

Although bats have been suggested to be the natural reservoirs of both viruses,

attempts to isolate the progenitor virus of SARS-CoV from bats have been unsuccessful.

Diverse SARS-like coronaviruses (SL-CoVs) have now been reported from bats in China, Europe and Africa,

but none is considered a direct progenitor of SARS-CoV because of their phylogenetic disparity from this virus

and the inability of their spike proteins to use the SARS-CoV cellular receptor molecule,

the human angiotensin converting enzyme II (ACE2)

Nature : November 2013

 

A SARS-like virus in bats

Peter Daszak and colleagues identify two novel coronaviruses from Chinese horseshoe bats that are closely

related to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV), the cause of a pandemic during 2002 and 2003.

They also isolate a live virus from these bats that has high sequence identity to SARS-CoV and that can infect

human cells using ACE2, the same receptor that is used by SARS-CoV.

The results provide the strongest evidence to date that horseshoe bats are natural reservoirs of SARS-CoV.

 

Our findings suggest that the diversity of bat CoVs is substantially higher than that previously reported.

In this study we were able to demonstrate the circulation of at least seven different strains of SL-CoVs

within a single colony of R. sinicus during a 12-month period.

The high genetic diversity of SL-CoVs within this colony was mirrored by high phenotypic diversity

in the differential use of ACE2 by different strains.

It would therefore not be surprising if further surveillance reveals a broad diversity of bat SL-CoVs that are able to use ACE2,

some of which may have even closer homology to SARS-CoV than SL-CoV-WIV1.

Our results—in addition to the recent demonstration of MERS-CoV in a Saudi Arabian bat25, and of bat CoVs closely related

to MERS-CoV in China, Africa, Europe and North America3,26,27—suggest that

bat coronaviruses remain a substantial global threat to public health.

Finally, this study demonstrates the public health importance of pathogen discovery programs targeting wildlife

that aim to identify the ‘known unknowns’—previously unknown viral strains closely related to known pathogens.

These programs, focused on specific high-risk wildlife groups and hotspots of disease emergence, may be a critical part

of future global strategies to predict, prepare for, and prevent pandemic emergence.

EVENT 201 IS A FICTIONAL EXERCISE AND DISEASE

Selected moments from the Event 201 pandemic tabletop exercise hosted by

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and

the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY.

The exercise illustrated the pandemic preparedness efforts needed to diminish

the large-scale economic and societal consequences of a severe pandemic.

Interesting slant on the current crisis...

We have 6,600,000 new unemployment claims this past week alone.

A new record!

China creates a pandemic, world economies are made worth less, China swoops in & buys

businesses, land & resources for pennies on the 'C' notes...

Anybody else see this?

RECENT QUESTION:

Which one to buy? --------> 

M1A1-->414408191.jpgOR  414408190.jpg<--MP40

 Ended up  getting the M1A1 over the MP40.....(both r awesome units in selectable full auto .177 BB's) :rauch08:

He was my all time favorite musician seen him live 3 times. Last time was 6 years ago in Nashville me and Beth went for our 20th anniversary. He was as good as the first time. The music world lost an Icon. Rest in peace Mr Prine.

Plague did him in. I saw him in first '73 in Greensboro at UNCG. wasn't but about 2-300 people. I saw him once with Emmy Lou Harris in the late 70's in Charlotte. I was going to see him and Emmy Lou again in June in Virginia. He was also the headline act for the Merle Fest in North Wilkesboro, NC this year. He was a common guy, much like Stomping Tom was. They loved their countries, and spoke to the common everyday guy.
