This Year ’s Flu Shot Only Worked a Third of the Time, CDC Says
Early estimates suggest the flu shot only worked about a third of the time this year. Between Nov. 2 and Feb. 3, total vaccine effectiveness was estimated at 36%, according to a report released Thursday by the CDC. When broken down by strain, however, efficacy varied widely. H3N2, the dominant strain circulating this flu season, is notoriously more virulent and less receptive to vaccination than other types of influenza. True to form, vaccine effectiveness against this strain was low this year — approximately 25%, according to the CDC report. (That’s actually better than experts originally feared, based on tren...

Australian fire beetle avoids the heat
(University of Bonn) The Australian jewel beetle Merimna atrata has several heat sensors. Originally it was thought that it uses them to detect forest fires as the insect lays its eggs in the wood of burned eucalyptus trees. Researchers at the University of Bonn were finally able to refute this hypothesis. Instead, the beetle appears to need its heat sensors for a different purpose: to not burn its feet on landing. The study has now been published in the journal PLOS ONE. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)
