During a press conference Wednesday, Perry said the disaster declaration would allow the state to implement emergency protective measures and receive government assistance.
The great splat of an asteroid that might have wiped out the dinosaurs apparently didn't get all of them. New fossil evidence suggests some dinosaurs survived for up to half a million years after the impact in remote parts of New Mexico and Color
Updated at 9:30 a.m.: Coroner's spokesman Craig Harvey said his office would collect specimens from the deceased and send them to the county public health department, which would determine whether either person died from the swine flu.
It is genetically different from the fully human H1N1 seasonal influenza virus that has been circulating globally for the past few years. The new flu virus contains DNA typical to avian, swine and human viruses, including elements from European and A
According to the police, a lab technician with the Swiss National Center for Influenza in Geneva had travelled to Zurich to collect eight ampoules, five of which were filled with the H1N1 swine flu virus.
The world was now at a "turning period", said Gregory Hartl, a WHO spokesman, where it would soon become clear whether the virus was capable of the kind of sustained, large-scale movement between humans that would bring a full pandemic a st
Another instance of hysteria, to be managed by the public health tyrants.
ABL would deter potential adversaries and provide speed-of-light capability to destroy all classes of ballistic missiles in their boost phase of flight. Eliminating missiles in their boost phase would reduce the number of shots required by other e
You only have a couple of days to prepare.
Since vitamin D deficiency is only now been recognized as a health concern in our own populations it is not too surprising that this unexpected test population would have an exaggerated response. It is perhaps too early to confirm the link but it
Archaeologists have unearthed a cache of pharaonic-era mummies in brightly painted wooden coffins near Egypt's little-known Lahun pyramid. The mummies were the first to be found in the sand-covered desert rock surrounding the mud-brick Lahun pyra

Remember this? Scientists isolate genes that made the 1918 flu lethal. This was dated Dec. 29, 2008. It hasn't been very long since this discovery was made then the new strain variant showed up in Mexico and the US, not very long, indeed.
EEStor feels this is a huge milestone which opens the advancement of key products and services in the electrical energy storage markets of today. The automotive and renewable energy sectors are a few of the key markets that would benefit greatly with
Scientists have reprogrammed mature skin cells into an embryonic-like state by using proteins instead of genes, a key advance aimed at overcoming safety concerns in one of the hottest areas of biological research.
Spider silk is already tougher and lighter than steel, and now scientists have made it 3 times stronger by adding small amounts of metal. Useful for manufacturing super-tough textiles and high-tech medical materials, including artificial bones and te
Government scientists have identified five more people who have been infected with swine flu, apparently confirming suspicions that the unusual strain of the respiratory infection is spreading from person to person, federal health officials said yest
More very good news here regarding the ongoing development of graphene technology. This suggests that it becomes plausible to mass produce ribbons of graphene in large amounts. Although not yet in sheets, this may be just as good for most applica
"People never thought that anomalous sulfur isotope fractionation could be caused by a process other than atmospheric reactions," said Ohmoto. "Our study significantly shifts possibilities to something different, to a biological and th
I can see the navy been very keen on this technology working. In retrospect they are even the best partner. After all they have a natural heat sink available to dispose of surplus energy.
Egypt's top archaeologist made his version of a sales pitch Sunday, presenting 22 coins, 10 mummies, an alabaster head and a fragment of a mask with a cleft chin as evidence that the discovery of the lost tomb of Mark Antony and Cleopatra is at h
Researchers have discovered a new kind of microbial life flourishing in a dark, icy-cold pool underneath an Antarctic glacier. The finding has implications for how life might have survived on Earth during the coldest, grimmest epochs.
