    I saw on the news last night 7 people have died from a cholera like disease known as Vibrio_vulnificus. Strangely there have been close to 30 reported cases of this and you do not see much of it on the web. You can die in about 24 hours from it and antibiotics don’t seem to help in some cases.

    We have had cases around here of the brain eating amoeba also like you reported in Louisiana.

  2. Dr. Nunn & the Science Café…sounds like something I’d like! Didn’t know they did that. Might have to go visit next time geology is the topic.
