This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.
<B>Where is Ebola virus found in nature?</b><p>The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
Republicans Are Killing You With Ebola, Of Course
Erica Payne, the same PR genius behind “F*ck Tea” and “Hey, Let’s Deface Paul Ryan’s New Book,” has put out a chillingly effective new ad that tells the ugly truth about Ebola.
Watch and learn, wingnuts:
I especially like the horror-movie music emphasizing the repetition of “Cut.” The Republicans want to chop you up with fiscal responsibility!
It’s all part of their evil plan. Right, Donna?
#1 on that list: Insufficient government spending.
You have to trust that government employees are using your tax dollars responsibly, and that they’re telling you the truth about it. They wouldn’t lie to you. What would be in it for them?
Or maybe you don’t believe them. Maybe you’re a traitor. Maybe you hate the United States of America.
Yeah, that’s what I thought, teabagger.
