Bronx Zoo tiger tests positive for coronavirus 

 

The coronavirus is infecting New Yorkers of all stripes.

A 4-year-old Malayan tiger at the Bronx Zoo has tested positive for the COVID-19 bug after developing a dry cough, the Wildlife Conservation Society said in a statement Sunday.

“Nadia, a 4-year-old female Malayan tiger at the Bronx Zoo, has tested positive for COVID-19. She, her sister Azul, two Amur tigers, and three African lions had developed a dry cough and all are expected to recover,” the statement read.
The diagnosis was confirmed by USDA’s National Veterinary Services Laboratory in Iowa “out of an abundance of caution,” the society said.

The big cats are on the mend, the WCS said.

This Parasitic Worm Is Thriving in Nature, but May Affect Your Sushi Dinner 

 

For parasitic worms of the genus Anisakis, life typically goes like this: after floating through the ocean in an egg, they hatch as wriggling larvae with a peculiar desire—to be eaten. Small crustaceans like krill gobble up the larvae, and those infested krill are then eaten by squid or small fish, which are devoured by bigger fish until they finally earn their nickname, whale worms, and end up in the bellies of whales or dolphins where they complete their life cycle by laying eggs that are subsequently ejected in the hosts’ feces.

But sometimes, those big fish full of the worms—like salmon or herring—get intercepted by fishers and end up in markets. Although fish suppliers and sushi chefs diligently remove parasite-infected fish from their wares, occasionally one of those little buggers may wind up in your sushi roll.

Now, new research finds the global population of those parasitic worms, commonly found in sushi and other kinds of uncooked fish, has exploded in recent decades. The worms are 283-times more common than they were roughly 40 years ago, according to a new paper published in Global Change Biology.

‘Shoot them dead,’ Philippine’s Duterte warns coronavirus lockdown violators 

 

In a televised address, Duterte said it was vital everyone cooperates and follows home quarantine measures, as authorities try to slow the coronavirus contagion and spare the country's fragile health system from being overwhelmed.

The Philippines has recorded 96 coronavirus deaths and 2,311 confirmed cases, all but three in the past three weeks, with infections now being reported in the hundreds every day.

"It is getting worse. So once again I'm telling you the seriousness of the problem and that you must listen," Duterte said late on Wednesday.

"My orders to the police and military ... if there is trouble and there's an occasion that they fight back and your lives are in danger, shoot them dead."

"Is that understood? Dead. Instead of causing trouble, I will bury you."

Study Reveals Gay and Bi Individuals Are 23% More Likely to Masturbate Weekly Than Their Heterosexual Counterparts 

 

The results of a major study exploring the masturbation habits of men and women around the world have just been revealed. Sexual pleasure brand TENGA, in conjunction with pollsters PSB, conducted the masturbation study and polled 13,000 men and women, aged 18 to 74, in 18 countries. This included the United States, India, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, Russia and Germany.

It identified a handful of differences between LGB people and straight people. These include gay/bi people saying they started masturbating, on average at age 13, compared with 15 for heterosexuals.

Some major takeaways from that study included:

Plant Disease Primarily Spreads Via Roadsides 

 

An analysis based on mathematical statistics more precise than those previously carried out uncovered the reason why powdery mildew fungi on Åland are most abundant in roadsides and crossings. Identified as the specific cause was that traffic raises the spores found on roadsides efficiently into the air.

The researchers are interested in disease transmission, as it helps explain the occurrence and biology of diseases. There are plant diseases that spread along riversides, bird migration routes, ocean currents or, for example, air traffic networks, much like human diseases that spread through social networks.

The transmission process determines the abundance and location of occurrence, while the method of transmission determines how the diversity of the disease branches off temporally and spatially, and, in the end, how the disease evolves through natural selection.

How we know ending social distancing will lead to more deaths, in one chart 

 

President Donald Trump already wants to pull back social distancing policies and guidances implemented in response to the coronavirus pandemic. But we know, based on the nation’s history with past outbreaks, what will happen if we do this too early: People will die.

In 1918, the world was ravaged by a horrible flu pandemic, which was linked to as many as 100 million deaths globally and about 675,000 deaths in the US. In response, cities across America adopted a variety of social distancing measures to combat the pandemic. Based on several studies of the period, these measures worked to reduce the death toll overall.

But many cities, also worried about the effects of social distancing on normal life and the economy, pulled back their social distancing efforts prematurely. When they did, they saw flu cases — and deaths — rise again.

Rudy Gobert says coronavirus made him lose sense of smell 

 

It took Rudy Gobert's positive test for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, to spark much of the action we've seen take place across the sports world.

The NBA suspended its season, which was followed by the NHL, MLS and MLB doing the same. The NCAA canceled March Madness altogether.

Yet, Gobert faced plenty of criticism for how he carried himself in the days leading up to his diagnosis. He jokingly touched recorders and phones after a press conference to make light of the coronavirus outbreak and tested positive two days later – something he apologized for in his first health update.

Now that Gobert is nearing the two-week mark since he tested positive for the coronavirus, he took to Twitter to offer another update. And he's experiencing a side effect that hasn't been widely associated with COVID-19.

Kanye West & Taylor Swift’s “Famous” Phone Call Leaks 

 

The Kanye West/Taylor Swift feud will never die, but you will. Four years later, the full, unedited version of the infamous “Famous” phone call between the two celebs has finally leaked online.

In case you just woke up from a lengthy coma…On Kanye’s The Life Of Pablo track “Famous,” he rapped, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous.” Taylor, understandably, was not happy about that, and said so. Then Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian claimed that Swift had actually OKed the line during a phone call beforehand and posted an edited video of the conversation in question that seemed to support her side of the story. She, and everyone, started calling Swift a snake.

Swift has always maintained that although yes, the call that launched a thousand snake emojis did indeed take place, Kanye never actually played the full song for her and never told her that he was going to refer to her as “that bitch.” And, well, the new footage that has now emerged pretty much vindicates her.

The Coronavirus Pandemic Is a Reminder the Rich and Powerful Won't Save Us 

 

The coronavirus pandemic has been a shock to our systems — political, social, and economic. As governments scramble to adequately respond to outbreaks of COVID-19, mandates to physically isolate ourselves from each other are impacting workers in vulnerable positions. Meanwhile, celebrities are hosting online sing-alongs, some politically powerful people have allegedly exploited the moment for financial gain, and the rich continue to deliver mind-blowing indications that their concern in a global crisis is first and foremost only for themselves.

It’s all an important reminder of something many of us felt even before this moment: The rich and powerful will not save us.

President Donald Trump, of all people, exhibited a rare display of class analysis when asked about the elite getting to the front of the line for tests, saying at a White House press conference Wednesday, “That’s the story of life.”

Trump, a poignant embodiment of the out-of-touch elite, is in this case absolutely correct. Disparities and inequities are nothing new. In this moment of crisis, we will have the chance to bear witness to how the fundamental imbalances of our world protect some and victimize others.

Having an older brother makes a man 38% more likely to be gay 

 

A new statistical study found that men with older brothers are 38% more likely to be gay than men who are their mother’s oldest son.

In a paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B this week, the researchers explain that they wanted to examine the “fraternal birth order effect” hypothesis of male homosexuality, the idea that having older brothers increases a man’s chance of being gay.

Quarantine the cat? Disinfect the dog? The latest advice about the coronavirus and your pets 

 

When a Pomeranian in Hong Kong tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 last week, pets quickly became part of the coronavirus conversation. The case raised the alarming possibility that pets could become part of the transmission chain for the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, which could potentially harm both them and us. But many questions remain about this possibility and how best to respond.

Q: Can pets serve as a reservoir of the virus and pass it back to us?

A: If pets can become infected—and we don’t know if they can—then yes, they could serve as a reservoir. And in that case, we’d need to deal with them the same way we’re dealing with human cases. We’d need to figure how to treat them. Like human hospitals, vet hospitals would have to be prepared for a surge in the number of cases.

Q: Would we quarantine our pets too?

A: Yes, just like humans, some might be quarantined at a hospital. Or a shelter. Or even a doggy day care. If they had the virus but weren’t sick, you could quarantine them at home. You’d want to limit your contact with them. Perhaps keep them in a bedroom away from other people and animals. You’d want to wash your hands frequently, and perhaps wear a mask when you entered the room.

LGBTQ people are more vulnerable to coronavirus for three reasons 

 

On 11 March, more than 100 LGBTQ organisations released a joint open letter to healthcare providers and mainstream media outlets to make them aware that queer people are at greater risk of contracting the coronavirus.

Dr. Scout, Deputy Director for the National LGBT Cancer Network, states: “As the spread of the novel coronavirus a.k.a. COVID-19 increases, many LGBTQ+ people are understandably concerned about how this virus may affect us and our communities.

“The undersigned want to remind all parties handling COVID-19 surveillance, response, treatment, and media coverage that LGBTQ+ communities are among those who are particularly vulnerable to the negative health effects of this virus.”

The letter continues to say that LGBTQ people are vulnerable because of three specific factors.

Sexual assault is a consequence of how society is organized 

 

The Department of Education is about to release new rules about how schools must deal with sexual harassment, stalking, and sexual assault. There's a lot that's disastrous about this interpretation of Title IX, which is supposed to promote equal access to education for women.

But what's largely missing from both the rules and the flood of public criticism they are generating is a discussion about prevention. This is typical of the national discourse about sexual assault on campus and beyond, and of the broader conversations in this era of #MeToo. The singular focus on adjudication reflects two assumptions.

The first is that victims frequently fabricate claims of sexual assault; all the evidence suggests that false accusations are rare. The second is that sexual assaults happen because of "bad" or "sociopathic" people. The only way to deal with them is through punishment harsh enough to strike sufficient fear into those who commit or want to commit assaults.

But what if the most sexual assaults were “normal”? Not in the sense that it’s acceptable, but in the sense that it’s often something that everyday people do— a predictable, if awful, a consequence of how society is organized. In doing the research for our book, Sexual Citizens, that’s exactly what we found. And there’s an important consequence to this finding: we’re not going to punish our way out of these normal assaults.

Parents may object that talking about sex is awkward, or that it's the children themselves who shut down the conversations. But many parents are frequently the source of much discomfort.

When they choose words like "hoo-hoo" or "pee-pee" instead of vulva and penis, they are communicating that some body parts are unspeakably shameful. Children learn very early that sex is not something they can talk about, especially with their families.

LGBT+ people are 46% more likely to smoke and new research explains why 

 

‘This report suggests that many LGBT+ people start smoking in similar circumstances to the general population. But it highlights that smokers in the LGBT+ community have many more triggers to sustain smoking than there are triggers to stop.

‘The reasons for this are complex. But considering that members of the LGBT+ community are more prone to stress, anxiety and generally poorer mental health and depression, self-medication using nicotine or other substances is commonplace and unsurprising.’

The researchers examined whether being LGBT+ makes people more likely to smoke. They found there wasn’t evidence for that. But LGBT+ people’s gender or sexual identity does make them more likely to keep smoking.

And the report argues there is a ‘culture of acceptance’ of smoking. Furthermore, it says that smoking gives a ‘sense of belonging’ to some in the LGBT+ community.
