Since the doors open at 5 pm, I would appreciate if some of you could show up early to help safe seats for the people that come later! Please mention in your RSVP if you are able to be there around 5 pm.
In this age of speedy travel, we hear troubling news reports of diseases that could threaten a worldwide pandemic: Ebola, SARS, AIDS, and something called Hendra killing horses and people in Australia. What those reports fail to mention is that such phenomena are part of a single pattern: the bugs that transmit these diseases all originate in wild animals and pass to humans by a process called spillover.
