Avian Flu Probably was Spread by Human
Thai diagnosis links mother to daughter; virus appears stable
By Keith Bradsher
Bangkok: A 26-year-old woman who cradled her dying daughter in her arms for 10 hours
at a hospital in north-western Thailand, and later fell sick and died herself, was the first
probable case of human-to-human transmission of avian influenza this year, Thai and
international health agency officials declared on Tuesday.
The diagnosis suggests that the lethal A (HSNI) virus, popularly known as bird flu,
can sicken people who do not have close contact with infected birds.
But the doctors said that the discovery did not necessarily mean that another
influenza pandemic would occur around the world, and urged renewed international efforts
to bring the disease under control.
A small segment of the mother’s virus has already been genetically sequenced, and
matches viral samples taken from Thai poultry, Thai health official said, suggesting that the
virus may not have evolved dramatically yet.

Ultraviolet light means the invisible part of spectrum beyond violet. This light has always
been regarded as very useful because it is used to cure certain skin disease, kill bacteria, detect
counterfeit money, form vitamins, etc.
Along with the increasing extensive use of computer in financial activities, ultraviolet light
has been widely applied by banks to identify the signatures of their customers in passbooks.
When customers opens a new account with a bank, the bank teller always asks him to sign on a
card placed in the signature column of a passbook. When the card is removed, the trace of his
signature will be left; this can be used to compare with the signature on the B
computer’s withdrawal slip under ultraviolet light.
Ultraviolet light certainly has many practical applications, but it may also be harmful to
human beings on some occasions. To everyone’s knowledge, the direct impact of the light to the
eyes for an excessive length of time may blind a person.
Even though it can cure certain skin disease, it is also very harmful to the skin. A study
just completed in the United States says that the light may cause skin cancer. The Ultraviolet
rays of the sun have been ranked as the third most dangerous cancer-causing agent after alcohol

Once upon a time, there was a King and Queen. And when their baby daughter was born
they were so happy they decided to have a big party. They invited all their family, all their friends
and all the fairies in the land. Now there were 13 fairies altogether but the king but queen only
invited 12. They forgot about the 13th. And that was something they should not have done.
Well, it was a splendid party! There were silver dishes piled high with delicious food and
golden plates at every place. And when everyone had finished eating, the fairies gathered around
the baby's cradle and they each made a magic wish. The princess shall be beautiful said the first.
And happy, said the second. And kind, said the third. And so they went on. The princess was to
be brave, and clever and truthful. She was to have a sweet singing voice and light dancing feet.
And, then, just as the twelfth fairy was about to make her wish, in came the thirteenth. She was
furious, because she had not been invited to the party. Here is my wish, she said. "When the
princess is 16 years old, she will prick her finger on a spindle and she will die." And with that, the
thirteenth fairy vanished.
Then the 12th fairy said, "I cannot change all of the wicked fairies powerful magic." So the
princess will prick her finger but she will not die! She slept for a hundred years. The king and
queen thanked the fairy for her kindness but they were not happy. They did not want their
daughter to sleep for a hundred years. So they ordered that every spinning wheel and spindle in
the land must be chopped up and burnt. Then they thought that the princess was safe.
The years passed and the princess grew up. She was very beautiful and clever at lots of
different things. She was, in fact, everything the fairies had wished her to be. On her sixteenth
birthday, the princess was exploring the castle when she came to a little room at the top of a tall
tower. And in that room was an old woman sitting by a spinning wheel. "What are you doing?"
asked the princess?" "I am spinning," said the old woman, who was really the wicked thirteenth
fairy, "would you like to try?" "Oh yes," said the princess, and she sat down by the spinning
wheel. But as soon as she touched the spindle, the sharp point pricked her finger and she fell
asleep. And the old woman vanished. At that same moment, the king and the queen, the
servants, the cats and the dogs all fell asleep! Even the fire stopped burning and the roasting
meat stopped sizzling. Everything slept.
Then a hedge of wild roses grew up around the castle. It grew and it grew until the castle
was hidden. One hundred years passed and then a prince came riding by and saw the top of the
tower rising up above the hedge of roses. He jumped off his horse and lifted his sword to cut
away the hedge. But as soon as the sword touched the branch, a path opened up in front of him.
So prince walked freely through the hedge. He entered castle, and walked from room to room.
Imagine his surprise, everyone and everything was fast asleep. At last he entered a little room at
the end of a tall tower and he saw the sleeping princess. She was so very beautiful that he bent
down and kissed her. Then the spell was broken and the princess opened her eyes. At the same
moment, everyone and everything in the castle awoke. The king yawned, the queen blinked, the
cats had a good stretch and the dogs wagged their tails. The servants began to work, the fire
began to flame, and the roasting meat began to sizzle. A hundred years had not changed anyone
The prince fell in love with the princess and asked whether she wanted to marry him.

water. The steam makes small clouds in the bathroom. These warm clouds meet the cold walls
and windows. Then we see small drops of water on the wall and windows.
The world is like your bathroom. The water in the oceans is warm when the sun shines on
it. Some of this water goes up into the sky and makes clouds. The wind carries the clouds for
hundreds of kilometres. The clouds meet the cold air in the sky. Then we’ll see drops of water
after the condensation of clouds to water. The drops of water are rain.

changes into clouds and becomes rain. So water is always moving from oceans to clouds to rain
