Google SearchWiki

Google's experiment that lets you reorder and annotate search results
is now live. Google SearchWiki should be available automatically if you
are logged in to a Google account and it can be recognized by the
visual clutter added to the search results.

Next to each result,
you should see three new options: a way to promote a web page at the
top of the results, an option to remove results from the page (they're
still visible at the bottom of the page) and a feature that lets you
share public comments about a result. After promoting a result, Google
shows some unnecessary information about the other people who promoted
the result.

Spice up your inbox with colors and themes


Gmail fans have been building unofficial extensions to spice up their
inboxes for a while, but up til now themes haven't been an integral
part of Gmail. We wanted to go beyond simple color customization, so
out of the 30 odd themes we're launching today, there's a shiny theme
with chrome styling, another one that turns your inbox into a retro
notepad, nature themes that change scenery over time, weather driven
themes that can rain on your mailbox, and fun characters to keep you in
good company. There's even an old school ascii theme (Terminal) which
was the result of a bet between two engineers -- it's not exactly
practical, but it's great for testing out your geek cred. We've also
done a minor facelift to Gmail's default look to make it crisper and
cleaner -- you might notice a few colors and pixels shifted around here
and there.

Fashion your Firefox!

Mozilla has now devised a Web application called
"Fashion your Firefox" that allows Firefox users to dress up the web
browser with their favorite add-ons.

It is a tool meant to customize the Firefox browser based on users'
interests and online activities. Fashion Your Firefox simplifies this
by allowing users to select add-ons that they need with just one click.

Mozilla defines the 'fashioning' the Firefox bit in the following way:

Fashion Your Firefox refers to the application's ability to
customize, tailor, and "fashion" your Firefox to best suit your daily
activities online.

Mozilla currently has 9 sets of interestingly named Firefox
extensions with their description below them. Some of them are: Social
Butterfly (for social networks), Shutterbug (for viewing and sharing
images and videos online), Rock Star (for music), and so on.

To add multiple add-ons to your Firefox, users can select add-ons
in categories that are interesting to them. Click the "I want this
add-on!" button and select the adjacent "Click here to install them"
link. Users will then be prompted to confirm their choices, and your
browser will restart with the selections added to your Firefox, without
having to add them individually.

Gmail Video Chat

Google has started Video Chat in Gmail.

Google say they’re currently rolling out a video chat option to Gmail. I can’t see it yet, but according to Google, once it’s rolled out and you installed the Windows plug-in
(and restarted your browser), you’ll see a “Video & more” ->
“Start video chat” option at the bottom of your Gmail chat box.
Contacts of yours who also installed this plug-in are supposed to show
with a camera icon next to their name in the chat list. Once you
contact a person, they’ll hear it ringing and can accept the video
chat, and you can then see & hear them via the webcam.

A Deadly New Arenavirus

Google ORG blog : A Deadly New Arenavirus

On September 12 2008, Cecilia van Deventer, a safari booking agent
living in Zambia, was flown to South Africa in critical condition. She
died just two days later. By October 6 2008, three more people had
died: the paramedic who accompanied Cecilia to South Africa, the nurse
who cared for her in Intensive Care, and the cleaner who cleaned her
hospital room after her death. A fifth patient, a nurse who cared for
the infected paramedic, is receiving anti-viral treatment. In all
cases, people infected were exposed to infected blood and/or body

South Africa's National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US-CDC) quickly identified the infectious agent as an arenavirus similar to the one that causes Lassa Fever
- a disease that affects 500 000 people per year in West Africa. Now,
following full sequencing of the viral genome by Professor Ian Lipkin
and colleagues at the Center for Infection and Immunity (CII) at Columbia University, it has been clearly shown that this is an arenavirus that has never been seen before.'s Predict and Prevent initiative recently announced
a grant of $2.5 million to support CII's work in pathogen discovery.
This identification of a novel arenavirus not only represents an early
success, but also demonstrates just why this work is so important.
'There is no doubt we are dealing with a newly emerged virus,' said Dr.
Janusz Paweska, head of the special pathology unit at the NICD in
Johannesburg. As Professor Robert Swanepoel, also of the NICD, has
pointed out, the virus is 'newly-discovered' rather than new, and has
probably been around in animal populations for some time before making
a recent jump to humans.

Arenaviruses, normally transferred to
humans through contact with the urine of their rodent hosts, can be
classified into New and Old World viruses depending on whether they
originate in the Western or Eastern hemisphere respectively. New World
arenaviruses, including Junin, Machupo, Sabia and Guanarito, can cause viral hemorrhagic fever.
This particular virus, classified as Old World due to its African
origins, began as a flu-like illness, then caused diarrhea, pharyngitis
and a rash before rapidly culminating in respiratory distress,
neurological symptoms and circulatory collapse over a period of about 9-12 days. The virus has yet to receive a name.

Due to the swift action of the NICD, US-CDC and CII the outbreak is now described as contained. We commend their efforts!
