    COVID-19 particles can be effectively filtered from the air to prevent transmission in the hospital using portable air filters and ultraviolet (UV) light sterilization technology, according to a recent study. Nature recently reported the study, which is currently not peer reviewed, to be the first to demonstrate how portable high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters can reduce hospital transmission of detectable airborne COVID-19 virus in a real-world health care setting. The research is currently reported in the preprint server MedRxiv. There are still unanswered questions regarding the variant, a scientist said. (iStock) COVID-19: WHAT IS THE DELTA PULUS VARIANT?  The researchers noticed during the pandemic hospital surges many COVID-19 patients were in health care settings without the proper capacity for high frequency air-exchanges, noting the previous experiments only studied the ability to filter air, removing inactive particles in controlled environments, but never in the real-world setting. Lead intensivist Dr. Andrew Conway Morris, Clinician Scientist in Intensive Care Medicine at University of Cambridge, wrote to Fox News: "Before we undertook this study we knew HEPA filters could take out small particles,...
    The 82nd Airborne's motto is "first in, last out." They were the last soldiers to leave Afghanistan on the final military flight, and this week one of their valued translators, Zabiullah R. affectionately known by the troops as Johnny, arrived with his family at his new home in rural North Carolina. "We’ll do whatever we can do to welcome them here and make them comfortable and make them feel like they are at home now," said Tracy Byrd, one of several hundred neighbors to line the roadway and welcome this Afghan family to Waxhaw County near Charlotte.  Johnny, who served with U.S. infantry units for more than six years, was rescued at the end of August by a U.S. Senator, a private veterans group, and members of the 82nd Airborne, one of the last combat translators to make it out before the war’s end.

    Far-right anti-vaxxer Republicans have been not only furious over President Joe Biden's COVID-19 vaccine/testing mandate, but also, because of the vaccination requirements that airlines have enacted. Journalist Kelly Weill, in the Daily Beast, reports that some of those anti-vaxxers have been floating an idea in response: starting their own airline — one that wouldn't have such vaccination requirements. According to Weill, "Anti-vax voices are responding to airlines' new requirements that pilots and flight crew be vaccinated." And their idea, she says, is "to launch their own airlines for pilots and passengers who refuse to be vaccinated." As a loyal Southwest customer who has been flying safely throughout the pandemic and is utterly opposed to vaccine… https://t.co/XNQjUsebXl — Senator Ron Johnson (@Senator Ron Johnson) 1633959204.0 Weill writes, "Will a squadron of conservative Twitter personalities earn their pilot licenses, buy planes, and give a new meaning to 'airborne' virus? Or will their efforts end as dismally as previous libertarian plots to avoid taxes by building boat-based societies in the middle of the ocean?"

    A microchip the size of a grain of sand is the smallest human-made flying structure ever created, according to its developers, who say it could track airborne disease. Scientists say the 'microfliers' could also be used to monitor air pollution and environmental contamination at scales not previously possible. There is no motor involved - the tiny device works like the propeller seeds of a maple tree, catching the wind to slow its fall as it glides towards the ground.  By studying wind-dispersed seeds, engineers from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, optimised the microflier's aerodynamics to ensure that when dropped from a height, it falls at a slow velocity in a controlled manner. This allows for a dispersal over a broad area and increases time spent in the air, interacting with pollution and disease particles on the way down. So far, versions of the tiny devices have been fitted with air pollution sensors, tools to study solar radiation at different wavelengths, and a PH sensor to monitor water quality.  Human-made 3D microfliers surround their nature-made inspiration, a propeller seed from a...

    The driver of the Toyota had be extricated from his vehicle by the Monmouth Junction Fire Department. He was hospitalized in stable condition. Police believe the driver may have suffered a medical episode before the crash. While no one was hurt, the building suffered such extensive damage that the restaurant will have to shut down. "The building was damaged to the point it can't be used but everyone eating was able to walk away," said Hayducka. The South Brunswick Building Department said the building will have to be reviewed for safety before it can be reopened. Here's the surveillance video from KHOU-TV: Watch: Car goes airborne, flips and crashes into Wendy's restaurant www.youtube.com
    In a shocking moment caught on video, a car went airborne, hitting another vehicle before flying into a nearby Wendy's and narrowly missing a family sitting at outside tables.  The crash, which occurred in South Brunswick, New Jersey, was during the lunchtime rush at 1 pm August 16, when the fast-food joint was packed with customers inside and outside. The Toyota Corolla was southbound on Route 130 near Melrich Road, when it hit a berm in front of a Wendy's. Surveillance video captured the Corolla rocketing over the parking lot before striking a 2017 Audi waiting in the drive-thru lane.  The footage then cuts to a different angle above the restaurant's outdoor dining area, where a family was nearly struck while eating.

    A CLIP has emerged showing frantic Afghan stowaways clinging to a US plane moments before three are believed to have fallen hundreds of feet to their death.  The latest video apparently shows an Afghan civilian tethered to wheels of the C-17 as it takes off from Kabul airport. 2The stowaway appears to be trapped in the landing gear 2What appears the stowaways falling from a C-17 leaving Kabul It is impossible to know if he was alive or dead at the time the film was shot. But his limbs can be seen helplessly thrown around by the extreme air currents after the military plane is airborne.  It is unlikely the man survived the ordeal but his fate is unknown.  The routing of the aircraft was not immediately clear.  The footage highlights —which The Sun has chosen not to show due to its distressing nature — the utter desperation of civilians fearing certain death if they are caught by the Taliban.  It follows several deeply distressing videos showing stowaways falling to their deaths soon after it was airborne.

To the north, they reach the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands (and beyond), while to the west they reach the Canary Islands and, crossing the Atlantic Ocean, they reach the American continent. It is a natural phenomenon that we are familiar with. Now, what risks does haze carry and why can it be harmful to health? The suspended dust of the haze it is generally composed of aluminosilicates (aluminum oxide and silica), clay, gypsum, calcite and other minerals. It also contains microscopic particles of other bacteria, fungi, pollen, and other not-so-natural elements.

    MSNBC network contributor Dr. Vin Gupta said Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that a commission to investigate the failures of former President Donald Trump’s coronavirus response should include recommendations for a “deterrent to medical misinformation” from Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI). Gupta said, “This has to be the moment for all of us to clamor for a non-partisan 9/11-style commission to investigate not just the root causes of the pandemic but, more importantly, the failures in the response. This will not be the last time we deal with a respiratory pandemic. To your point, the ex-president knew, and I think most glaringly, he knew this was an airborne virus. As a military member myself, that should have alerted a five-alarm fire, something akin to what Pearl Harbor was doing right after they knew they were about to get attacked. This was that same level of urgency. They had a warning this was an airborne virus. Nothing was done. We know if something was done in February upon receipt of that knowledge, 80% of lives could have been...
    Israel has used an airborne laser to shoot down drones in a series of tests, officials said Monday, calling it a 'milestone' to update its already powerful defence systems. During the tests, a prototype of the high-power laser system carried on a small civilian plane 'successfully intercepted several [drones]', said Yaniv Rotem, head of the defence ministry's research and development unit. The system could down any flying object, including 'drones, mortars, rockets, ballistic missiles,' Rotem said, adding they hoped to have a working prototype in 'three to four years'. It means that, at least in theory, the laser system could be used as part of Israel's Irone Dome system which is effective but expensive to use.  Israel says it has used a laser mounted on an aircraft to shoot down drones at a distance of 3ft, but hope the weapon can be upgraded to fire over a distance of 12 miles Footage released by the Israeli MoD shows the laser burning holes in drones which then crash to the ground during tests 'in the last week' A video...
    Authorities identified the driver of a speeding Mini Cooper that flew into a minivan on Route 17, critically injuring its driver, as a 33-year-old warehouse worker from Hudson County, New Jersey. Witnesses told police that Christopher Macias of Guttenberg was racing the driver of another vehicle – believed to be a Camaro – when he failed to negotiate the exit ramp to Hoboken Road on the southbound highway shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday, June 8, Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said. The other vehicle kept going, they said. Macias’s Mini Cooper hit the grass triangle median separating the exit and entrance ramps outside the Meadowlands Diner at the East Rutherford border in Carlstadt and slammed into the driver’s side of a 2020 Chrysler Pacifica, he said Thursday. The minivan driver, a 65-year-old Orange County resident from Montgomery, remained in critical condition Friday at Hackensack University Medical Center, the prosecutor said. Meanwhile, an investigation by members of his Fatal Accident Investigations Unit and Carlstadt police produced charges against Macias of assault by auto. Macias, who wasn’t injured, also received summonses for...

    BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – A group of 39 scientists from around the world, including two professors at the University of Colorado Boulder, is calling for a “paradigm shift” in combatting the spread of airborne pathogens in indoor settings. Throughout the pandemic, people all over the world have made numerous temporary changes in the name of safety, including wearing masks and practicing social distancing. Many buildings now have high-tech ventilation or air cleaning systems as well to make gathering inside safer. (credit: CBS) Such practices prevent the spread of the coronavirus, which experts say is predominately spread through the air. “People are really becoming aware that this is an important issue,” said Dr. Shelly Miller, professor of mechanical and environmental engineering at CU Boulder. Before organizations such as the World Health Organization acknowledged the potential for airborne transmission, Miller and colleague Jose-Luis Jimenez were among 239 scientists who signed onto a letter to medical communities and governing bodies warning about the risk of the virus spreading through the air.

    State regulators in New York will soon draft rules that will require employers to protect workers from airborne infectious disease. A new state law tasks state labor and health officials with coming up with minimum workplace standards around things like the availability of personal protective equipment, social distancing and quarantine requirements. Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the bill into law last week. Employers in New York will have to come up with safety plans that comply with the yet-to-be written state standards and provide them to workers. Employers who don’t comply could face fines. Workers could also sue for up to $20,000 from employers who don’t follow safety standards or retaliate against workers for reporting non-compliance.
    U.S. health officials have finally acknowledged that coronavirus is airborne and can travel more than six feet in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines updated Friday.  'COVID-19 spreads when an infected person breathes out droplets and very small particles that contain the virus. These droplets and particles can be breathed in by other people or land on their eyes, noses, or mouth,' the guidance reads.  'People who are closer than 6 feet from the infected person are most likely to get infected.'  Previously, the CDC warned that coronavirus spread primarily through close contact, coughs and sneezes, not through what's known as 'airborne transmission.'  Viruses that are airborne are tiny enough to travel farther distances as aerosols, rather than larger 'droplets.'  Evidence has mounted for months that coronavirus travels this way, but the CDC largely punted on the issue, saying it was still assessing the data, until now.  The agency's advice also continues to move away from warning about the risk of contracting the virus from surfaces, though the new guidance does acknowledge their potential to become contaminated.  ...
