    you canít eradicate a disease like that. Itís in the wild and spread between monkeys, bats, and other animals. There are very specific protocols and requirements to call an end to the outbreak. You need two full incubation periods without new symptoms. All countries had the necessary 42 days for this strain. So the outbreak officially ended.

    Teen bitten by shark in Florida, second attack at same beach in 3 days

    This scourge of Great White Shark attacks is getting serious. The only way to stop a bad shark is with a good one. That's why today I'm calling for required shark ownership. Sure, infinitely more swimmers will be eaten by other swimmer's sharks, and perhaps people will be eaten by their own shark, but that's the price we have to pay so the bad sharks out there don't get us.

    I recall Flipper killing sharks. People need to own dolphins to protect us from the shark scourge. Dolphins don't eat people (yet).

    Is there a way to ensure only white people get sharks?

    Well, that too altho reading comments under the articles noting this on FB it is all a figment of the collective imagination. Even if you aren't willing to buy into what they are reporting it is absolute proof that science education is in big trouble. I would really like to ask some of these people in person how they view things. I wonder how many people actually think before they type (not many)
