"The metaverse... besides being immersive and interoperable, it's meta-physical, that is, a realized illusion, an impossibility in the round, able to absorb an infinite number of contradictions and convert them into fuel for growth."--Martin Gurri @mgurri greeneracresvaluenetwork.wordpress.com/2022/05/18/dai…

This #Iowa farm just killed 5 million birds during an outbreak of #avianflu, &we documented the horrific aftermath of the mass killing, including birds left behind after surviving "#ventilationshutdown." @KimReynoldsIA

Taxpayer dollars paid for the farm's last mass killing after infectious disease ran rampant in 2015. Now, the farm's billionaire owner, former Senator Glen Taylor, who also owns @Timberwolves & @StarTribune, may get bailed out again despite posing a public health threat.
Please share this video to help spread the word about the #AvianFlu & the industry's violent response. #VentilationShutdown

Hey friends. We’re coming to you today with some somber news. A commercial flock of turkeys in Johnston County, NC has tested positive for highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). This location is ~ an hour away from the Refuge and HPAI is highly fatal to domesticated birds.
In response, we have been forced to make the unfortunate decision to keep all of our birds indoors until the threat of ceases. We've also implemented many biosecurity protocols. In order to provide the best quality of life to our birds, we have been making adjustments such as:
-shifting some birds around to create more indoor space for each flock
-implementing daily cleaning of all bird houses
-providing evening snacks of rotating fruit and vegetables (in addition to maintaining our morning enrichment program)

1/10 I write to share some updates re the current H5N1 outbreak in Israel from our #movement_ecology perspective, with aspects highly relevant to #epidemiology as well.

But let me start with some background first.

#BirdFlu #AvianFlu #influenza #cranes #H5N1 #Zoonotic #Israel
2/10 Around 12-13 December, the first observations of avian flu in cranes at the Hula Valley arrived, following three H5N1-positive cases elsewhere and in other bird species since mid-October.
3/10 With @SashaPekarsky and Idan Talmon, we then checked the situation with our GPS-tracked cranes, 11 of them were in Israel in the relevant period. We noticed clear movement/behavioral changes in few individuals.

"As damaging as #H5N8 has been to birds, it had never infected people. Until February."

1/ "The Russian health authorities also tested about 200 of the people involved in the cleanup of the farm in #Astrakhan, using nasal swabs and later blood tests for antibodies. They reported that for the first time, #H5N8 had jumped to people."
2/ "Seven of the workers appeared to have been infected with the virus, although none of them became ill. Only one of those seven cases, however, was confirmed by genetically sequencing the virus."

Here we go! Just watch next they will say that covid-18 and h1n2 ‘mutated’ together and they will call it covid-21. 😉👌🏻

“The virus was detected in mid-October after an Alberta patient sought medical care with influenza-like symptoms.“ edmontonjournal.com/news/local-new…
“mostly just among pigs. In fact, they can infect each other the same way as humans, through expelled water droplets from coughs and sneezes. They can even transmit it without symptoms.”

“However, the jump from pig to human is incredibly rare.”

narcity.com/amp/rare-flu-t…
“The positive case was discovered after the patient went to a local hospital and was tested for Covid-19.”

“The individual sought was dealing with mild, influenza-like symptoms but quickly recovered.”

“no link to slaughterhouses”

#Covid19 is among the most serious challenges humanity has ever faced, and enormous work lies ahead of us to get this outbreak under control. But in parallel, we need to innovate ourselves out of the systems that create entirely foreseeable & unacceptable public health risks. 1/n
That’s what I’ve dedicated my career to at @goodfoodinst: supporting the development of #plantbased meat and #cultivatedmeat so that we can wean ourselves off of industrial animal agriculture and all of its attendant public health and environmental hazards. 2/n
Both farmed domestic animals and caged wild animals create the perfect breeding ground for zoonotic diseases, which leap from livestock or wildlife to humans that have close contact with live animals and their infected tissues and fluids – namely, hunters and slaughterers. 3/n
