Viral and bacterial contamination from an unexpected source.
Scientists now discovered that billions of viruses and bacteria are not transmitted by living beings only but transported over the air and literally falling from the sky as well.
The Journal of the International Society for Microbial Ecology reports that many viruses and bacteria must be spread over the air since genetically identical viruses are found in different locations and environments round the globe.
Most of the transport activity takes place in the troposphere, the part of the atmosphere above us in which the most part of the weather patterns occur.
Massive amounts of viruses and bacteria are swept up from the planet’s surface and directly transported into the most remote area’s to drop on the planet’s surface.
The assumption that viruses might fall from the sky is not new.
For a long time it is believed that viruses can drop from the sky and not necessarily originate from Gaia.
Since unexplainable entirely new types of viruses are found, scientists think it is very well visible that they also come with dust and debris from outer space.
From the universe or earth, it is estimated that daily over 800 million viruses and bacteria are deposited per square meter above the planetary boundary layer.
They find their final way back to the earth surface carried by rain and dust.
There is a positive note about all of this.
Scientists agree that the worldwide deposits of viruses and bacteria could help ecosystems to quickly get used to upcoming environmental changes.
It must be a shock in Downing Street. Breaking news! The Potus is not visiting the U.K. next month to open the new American Embassy in London.
In a Twitter message Donald Trump said he was not a “big fan” of the new embassy. It was a “bad deal”.
Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for “peanuts,” only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!

Since Britain is moving away from Europe, all hopes are focused on other trade partners like the United States.
But now it turns out that Therese May’s visit to the White House was at least a little too optimistic. Since last year, a growing number of American companies are leaving the U.K.
Close friends or not that close anymore?
However, it must be recognized that the February visit was not THE full state visit offered by Theresa May and the Queen.
This should take place later this year. But no firm date for a state visit had ever been agreed, nor had the White House provide any details of the trip so far.
The cancelation of the February visit is seen by many as a confirmation of bad feelings about British media criticizing Donald Trump.
U.S. sources told me that the American President is fed up about the ongoing bashing of his Presidency by the BBC.
Additionally, there is fear that the negative sentiment in the British media will spark large scale protests.
Further a number of political clashes between Donald Trump and Mrs. May could lay behind the decision.
The British government is now in panic mode and declined to comment on Mr. Trump’s working trip cancellation.
I am sure you agree with me that we live in a dangerous world. Not seen since the cold war era. Today the planet seems to be just a few steps away from total nuclear destruction. The North Korean government called the latest UN Security Council sanctions “an act of war” It is believed that the North Korean missiles can reach America and Europe. The American president certainly will be able to deal with this threat.
Here in the United Kingdom, other worries are still mounting. Brexit is now in complete chaos and despite a provisional agreement with the EU in Brussels, negotiations are far from finalized and the Home Office is advising new EU foreigners to leave. Since many differences are unsolved, a hard Brexit, just walking away from the table, is coming closer to the edge.
Life’s good in London. But not for all inhabitants. There was the shocking news about terror attacks and –not to forget- the horrifying Grenfell tower blaze that took so many innocent life’s. It was great to see that many officials, the royal family included, addressed the memorial services held for the victims and their family.
In this world, thank God, there is a bunch of good news as well.
The self-driving car is gaining momentum. Certainly in America. Next year commuters in Phoenix (Arizona) will have the option to hail rides in driverless cars via a smartphone app. As they join the ride, a car insurance will cover the risk.
With this, car producer Alphabet wants to ease financial concerns and give a boost to what is seen as the future of automobility.
The trip-based coverage for users includes lost items, problems related to interrupted rides and potential medical expenses.
Since I love driving, I do not see myself in a driver less car soon. But things are rapidly changing. Time will tell.
On the medical science front, the year behind was a remarkable one. Along with milestones, as it comes to incurable diseases, we now can edit the genome of embryos. Just repair faulty DNA. What a great time we live in!
Further we have the mounting UFO disclosures. With more openness about UFO sightings and contacts revealed from official sources, governments are slowly but surely preparing the world for shocking revelations. We are not alone.
Despite all these great developments, on many frontiers, it is still a long way to go. However, I am convinced we are exponentially speeding into a bright future.
Shocking claims from scientists reveal gay and straight men have different variations of at least two genes that somewhat correlate with their sexual orientation.
The human operating system is based on DNA structures one is born with. Now it looks like even sexual preferences are preprogrammed in the human operating system.
The Scientific Reports journal is reporting that scientists at the North Shore University in Illinois compared the genomes of 1,077 gay and 1,231 straight men from European origin.
They found differences in two genes.
One of those genes, coded SLITRK6, is responsible for brain development and the production of hormones. The other gene is TSHR. This one is responsible for the thyroid function, sexual preferences and weight loss.
Earlier studies have shown that the part of the brain where the SLITRK6 hormone is based, the hypothalamus region, is in gay men 34 % larger as in heterosexual men.
The TSHR gene has also something to do with the reproduction capability in woman. Woman with an irregular thyroid function often face severe difficulties getting pregnant.
Dr. Alan Sanders is one of the scientists involved in the study. He told reporters last week that the objective of this controversal study is to search for genetic underpinnings of male sexual orientation. At best it will increase the knowledge of biological mechanisms underlying sexual orientation.
Further he emphasized that “not all men who have the gay genes end up as a gay”
Again softening the findings: “It is understood that probably multiple genes are involved, each with a fairly low effect. There will be men who have the type of gene that increases the chance of being gay, but they won’t be gay”
The scientist warned that the findings are still not much more than speculative. Though they may pave the way for more conclusive studies.
Other researchers also expressed caution, as statistic studies usually involve a much larger and more diverse audience.
Since the study was carried out in European men, it is completely unknown what the result might be in non-European men or lesbian woman.
Scientific upheaval like this is not new. Genetic factors in sexual preferences are attracting scientist’s attention since 1993. It was the year of what reporters called, “The Gay Gene”
A variation discovered in the X chromosome between straight and gay men.
And the latest is another statistic outcome.
Men with an older brother are more likely to be homosexual then those who don’t.
For over two decades, the “Older Brother Effect” statistical study indicates that men who have an older brother are more likely to be gay than those without.
After Stephen Hawking, it’s now the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, that has warned overpopulation could have dramatic effects for the planet.
Overpopulation is an issue politicians don’t like to address and mostly avoided by the mainstream media. They simply do not have the guts to talk about it. Mass media often are afraid of controversial issues.
Earlier I posted on this page, according computer calculations, that there is no absolute scientific evidence climate change is caused by human influences; however, mankind is ruining the earth’s scarce resources in an exponential speed.
Instead of focusing on the real cause of environmental problems, politicians and the media get on with their human made climate change forgery stories to find a legitimation raising taxes and worsen the life of myriads low income households by increased energy bills.
Believe me for both the rich and poor, the real solution is a decreased number of humans on the globe. Life will be much better with a less overcrowded planet.
Back in 2011, it was Prince Williams’s grandfather who made a pledge for voluntary family limitation seen as the only way to tackle the worlds growing human population.
The current situation is so acute that prof. Stephen Hawking recently warned that the human race is doomed if we do not escape earth and colonize other planets as the Moon and Mars the soonest.
Prof. Hawking: “I am convinced that humans need to leave earth. The Earth is becoming too small for us, our physical resources are being drained at an alarming rate”
He also mentioned leaving the Solar System and move to our nearest star system, Alpha Centauri.
Scientists believe there exist one or more habitable planets.
There is an immense pressure on researchers to develop propulsion systems making it possible to travel across the universe in an eye blink.
Some people assume that these jaw dropping systems earlier have been found in crashed UFO’s and now by the U.S. military reverse engineered to copy.
If no action is taken; the human race will end in about 200 years. Beside overpopulation there is the threat of an asteroid strike or the outbreak of incurable viral diseases. We need a back up planet. Now.
According to the World Health Organization, in Madagascar at least 33 people has been killed recently and over 200 infected by one of the deadliest plagues in human history known as the Black Death.
The Black Death disease is known from one of the darkest episodes in mankind.
It was in the fourteenth century that in Europe over 50 million people were killed by a mysterious disease called the Black Death. In some places the entire population was wiped out.
Conspiracy theorists believe the virus came from outer space and was deliberately transferred by aliens.
But we don’t believe that, do we?
It is also known that today descendants of those who survived, thanks to a genetic mutation caused by the virus, are completely immune for the AIDS virus.
Particularly eastern and central Madagascar has been worst hit by the recent outbreak. Red alert warnings and various measures as the closure of public institutions, schools and other places where people gather came into effect.
Different as with AIDS, the Black Death plague is not transmitted by body fluids only, but also airborne.
Therefore, the WHO called the risk of the epidemic spreading “very high” and a massive amount of antibiotics and disinfectant spray has been send to the affected areas.
Nowadays, when treated in an early stage, in most cases, the Black Death disease is curable.
After an incubation time of maximum 7 days, patients infected with the plague are suffering flu like symptoms as fever, head- and body pains as well as weakness, vomiting and nausea.
If not treated more severe symptoms appear like internal bleeding and swollen dark skin spots. Until death arrives.
Despite all the scaremongering about looming viruses and other life threatening diseases, the future is bright.
Ultimately, genetic engineering will bring earth population on the brink of a society in which almost everything is curable.
