First new strain found in the U.S. in several years

A new strain of rabies has been discovered in southern New Mexico, federal and state health officials confirmed Tuesday.

While it doesn’t present any more of a public health threat than the known strains of the potentially fatal disease, the discovery is generating curiosity in scientific circles because it’s the first new strain to be found in the United States in several years.

“It’s exciting. It’s related to another bat strain. It’s similar but unique, so the question is what’s the reservoir for this strain,” state public health veterinarian Paul Ettestad said.

An Iowa girl who was so badly injured in an accident four years ago that her family had started discussing funeral arrangements is now graduating from high school.

In September 2011, just two weeks into her freshman year, Taylor Hale suffered a traumatic brain injury while horsing around with friends after a high school football game. She slid off a car hood and hit her head, hard, against pavement. Her incredible trajectory — from being declared brain-dead, according to her family, to now getting ready to go to college — was first documented in the Des Moines Register.

 “‘Taylor’s been in an accident. She’s laying in the middle of the street, and the ambulance is on its way,'” Taylor’s mom, Stacy Henningsen, recalled one of Taylor’s friends telling her that night four years ago.

10 foods that make you smell

You’re sitting on a train that’s slightly warm, packed with passengers, and suddenly you get a whiff of “rotten egg” stench. 

Stop after stop, the crowd thins out, but that onerous odor remains. You search for the offender as subtly as you can, so you can find a seat in the opposite direction. As your head swivels, you’re hit with that stench again, so strong you could swear it was you. 

You nonchalantly dip your head down toward your underarm — wait a minute. It is you. But you didn’t even work out today. And you took a shower this morning. And you’re wearing deodorant.

After Nearly Claiming His Life, Ebola Lurked in a Doctor’s Eye

When Dr. Ian Crozier was released from Emory University Hospital in October after a long, brutal fight with Ebola that nearly ended his life, his medical team thought he was cured. But less than two months later, he was back at the hospital with fading sight, intense pain and soaring pressure in his left eye.

Test results were chilling: The inside of Dr. Crozier’s eye was teeming with Ebola.

His doctors were amazed. They had considered the possibility that the virus had invaded his eye, but they had not really expected to find it. Months had passed since Dr. Crozier became ill while working in an Ebola treatment ward in Sierra Leone as a volunteer for the World Health Organization. By the time he left Emory, his blood was Ebola-free. Although the virus may persist in semen for months, other body fluids were thought to be clear of it once a patient recovered. Almost nothing was known about the ability of Ebola to lurk inside the eye.

This Is What Mental Illness Actually Looks Like

Photographer Anne Betton, 37, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2009. After an arts-focused education, she had moved on to a career in business communication—but a breakdown caused her to cycle between mania and depression for several years, including stints in psychiatric hospitals.

Stabilized since 2012, Betton has moved on to a second career in the arts, and now she’s focusing on portraying the journeys of others who, like her, have battled with mental illness.

.
Betton decided to commit to the cause after deep reflection on mental illness, its meaning, and the place of the mentally ill in society. Her photography collection, “Putting A Face on Mental Illness,” illustrates the humanity of mentally ill people—making them subjects, not objects of derision, scorn and misunderstanding. In her portraits, which she takes in the homes of her subjects, she seeks to draw them out in conversation and “reflect the soul” of each person in their portraits. A selection of her works was recently exhibited in an art gallery in Paris, to an enthusiastic local reception.

This Buddhist Monk Used His Own Practice To Make Peace With Cancer

In 2011, William Tran, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk with the honorable ranking of Highest Buddhist Master, went to the dentist for inflammation in his gums. Antibiotics did not help and when the dentist saw him again, he was so concerned that he personally took Tran to the emergency room.

There, Tran was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and was told that his disease might not be cured. After chemotherapy treatment, a period of remission and then a relapse, his doctors at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, California decided that it was time to investigate transplant options. When they could not find a perfect match for him for a bone marrow or stem cell transplant, Tran’s doctors looked to a relatively new transplantation option for adults with promising results: umbilical cord transplants. Before Tran could receive his transplant from donated and matched umbilical cord blood…
