WARNING: ZIKA HAS REACHED MALAYSIAN SHORES!

Zika is spread typically by the bite of infected Aedes mosquito. These mosquitoes are aggressive bloodsuckers during daytime, they can also bite during night time. Currently, there is no vaccine to combat this dreadful virus.

Malaysia confirmed on 1st September 2016 (Thursday) its first Zika infection in a woman who lately went to neighboring Singapore for 3 days to visit her daughter on Aug 19. Her daughter is among 5 Malaysians working in Singapore who are infected. The victim, a financial consultant working in Kelana Jaya had showed signs of Zika symptoms such as rashes and fever one week after returning from Singapore. Her husband’s test results came out negative while their daughter is getting well in Singapore.

According to Al Jazeera, Zika virus caused more than 1600 cases of birth defects also known as Microcephaly. Current research also suggests that Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), an uncommon sickness of the nervous system, is strongly associated with Zika.

Ancient Termites: Forefathers of farming 25 million years ago

Agriculture exist 25 million years ago but it was not practiced by humans. In fact, humans did not even exist 25 million years ago, but who is responsible for the agriculture if there were no humans back then?

The answer is termites. Scientist have sufficient evidence to back this claim, according to evidence, micro scale farming was carried out by termites when Homo sapiens did not even exist.  These ancient farmers who are the pioneers of agriculture produced fungus.

Termite workers tending fungus in their garden.

Based on a research team, led by Eric Roberts from James Cook University and researchers from Ohio, they have found some of the hoariest samples of “fungus gardens” in a 25 million year old termite nest fossil in exposed cliff sides in the Rukwa Rift Basin of southwestern Tanzania.

Based on a journal published by PLOS ONE, some species of termites develop fungi in “gardens” in their underground compartments or nest to help them transform plant substances into termite food that is easier to digest. Scientist also found out that termites have an “obligate symbiotic relationship” with the fungus. This indicates that both termites and fungus cannot exist without one another. Thus, this is further confirmed when DNA from modern day termites showed that termites have started fungus farming approximately 25 to 30 years ago while the fossil in southwestern Tanzania also serves as evidence to double confirm the date and granted researchers better understanding of the symbiotic relationship between termites and fungi.

The relationship between termites and fungus is also expected to be one of the factor that influenced how nutrients were concentrated across the landscape, manipulating the evolution of Africa’s animal and plant life.

In conclusions this is a groundbreaking finding because it helps us to understand more on evolutionary biology and environmental changes throughout the multi-million year time frame which scientist believe the earth has existed.

The wrath of Zika Virus: Invasion of Florida

Zika virus has started its dreadful charge and it has arrived in Florida, a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It has strike fear on the local population and tourists.

The current risk level is being updated to “moderate” by Public health England due to 4 people in the state have contracted Zika virus although the victims did not been to Zika hotspot or having unprotected sex with any infected partners. Tourist in Florida were also advised to refrain from unprotected sex while having their vacation.

Pregnant women were recommended to delay all unnecessary flights to Florida, following the epidemic of the virus. Thus, people returning from Zika- affected areas should aware or symptoms such as rashes, itching, joint pain and headaches because those are some of the symptoms of the virus. In fact, 80% percent of people who are infected never suffered any symptoms but infection in pregnant woman can cause miscarriage and microcephaly also known as abnormal smallness of head in infants.
