Swine influenza A (H1N1) virus spreads same way as the seasonal flu. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing of people with influenza. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose. Infected person can be able to infect others a day before the symptoms develop and up to 1 week or more after becoming infected. It means that the infected person can pass on the flu to someone before he know that he is sick, and as well as while he is sick.
The best thing to prevent and the most important: wash your hands. Try to stay and maintain healthy life style. Get plenty of sleep and rest, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food. Try not touch surfaces that may be contaminated with the flu virus. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. If you got infected stay home and try to avoid others to keep them from being infected.

Symptoms of swine flu and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome or SARS are utmost the same. Both SARS and flu first signs of symptoms are acute fever and respiratory problems. There are also sudden attacks of fever which sometimes can be very high, from 39 to 40 degrees Celsius. Symptoms like coughs, sore throats, headaches, and general aches and pains. Also it has reported that people have diarrhea and vomiting associated with swine flu. But when it comes to numbers flu is more serious and dangerous than SARS.
In the past, severe illness (pneumonia and respiratory failure) and deaths have been reported with swine flu infection in people. World Health Organization (WHO) said that the symptoms of swine flu are similar to seasonal influenza. Mild cases may have escaped from recognition; therefore the true extent of this disease among humans is unknown.

Swine flue is a very contagious acute respiratory disease usally found in pigs. It spreads through air or by direct contact. World Health Organization (WHO) said that it tends to infect large numbers of a given pig population, killing between 1 and 4 percent of those affected. Not every animal infected displays symptoms. The outbreaks occur in United States and have also reported in North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Parts of Eastern Asia. Human usally infected the virus through contact with the pigs.WHO says properly handled and prepared pork products are safe to eat. Swine virus dies when cooked at temperature of 70 degree C higher. The risk of a pandemci has increased. Health officials worry the swine flu might develop into a form easly spread among humans. The symtoms of the swine virus are fever of more than 100 degrees, body aches, coughing, a sore throat, respiratory congestion and some cases vomiting and diarrhea. The swine flu virus detected in Mexico and the United States appears to responds to treatment with Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and Zanamivir (Relenza).

LONDON (Reuters) – MUZU.TV, an Irish-based video website which has won plaudits from the music industry for the way it pays artists when their music is played online, has signed a deal with the world's largest label Universal.
MUZU.TV, which has also signed deals with EMI, Sony BMG, the Ministry of Sound and Cooking Vinyl, says it is purpose-built to pay artists through advertising when their music is played.
Users can either watch music videos on the MUZU site, on artist sites or embed them into social networks.
On Tuesday MUZU announced it had signed a video license to show videos in Britain and Ireland for Universal's global artist repertoire, including the likes of Amy Winehouse and U2. Universal is owned by Vivendi.
It also said on Tuesday it was powering video for all Sony Music artists on the popular Bebo social network and it is the official partner on the Michael Jackson site for Britain and Ireland.
MUZU has been welcomed by the music industry which had previously criticized other sites such as YouTube for failing to properly compensate artists. The industry is also keen to develop their digital businesses as physical sales of CDs fall.

SEATTLE — Microsoft Corp.'s next version of its Office desktop programs will reach consumers next year, though not likely in conjunction with the Windows 7 operating system.Microsoft is set to announce Wednesday that Office 2010 will be finished and ready to send to manufacturers in the first half of next year.From there, it can take six weeks to four months or more for the programs to reach PC users, said Chris Capossela, a senior vice president in the Microsoft group that makes Office. The timing will differ for big businesses and individual consumers, and for people who buy packaged software versus those who download it.Some industry watchers had expected a new version of Office this year, but Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer extinguished that rumor at a meeting with analysts in February.Capossela declined to be more specific about a launch date. Windows 7, the successor to Windows Vista, is scheduled to reach consumers by the end of January 2010.Office 2010 — previously known by the code name "Office 14" — will include slimmed-down versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote that let people create and edit documents in a Web browser. Consumers will have access to a free, ad-supported version, and Capossela said the company is still hammering out what to charge businesses that want a version without ads.Microsoft plans to let hundreds of thousands of people test a technical preview of the new Office portfolio starting in the third quarter of 2009, Capossela said. The company did not say whether average PC users will have a chance to test a more polished beta version.Microsoft also said a new version of its Exchange e-mail server will be available for purchase in the second half of 2009. When paired with the next version of Microsoft's Outlook e-mail program, Exchange 2010 aims to prevent e-mail faux pas and would warn people against trying to "reply all" to a huge distribution list. Microsoft said it can also be tweaked to stop people from sending e-mail outside the organization, helping businesses cut down on unnecessary e-mail and prevent leaks.A beta version of Exchange 2010 was to be made available on Wednesday. - AP
