Inside the Very Big, Very Controversial Business of Dog Cloning | Vanity Fair

This is a human version of what is happening when people lose a pet they love.” If distraught parents think a clone would resemble 85 percent of their child’s appearance and personality—roughly what Tom Rubython got with one of his clones—it’s only a matter of time until pressure will inexorably mount to give it a shot. If there’s enough demand, the market will do its best to respond.

Norovirus is responsible for roughly 1 in 5 cases worldwide of acute gastroenteritis. The symptoms are pretty horrible: nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. And it's very, very, very contagious. It takes only one particle to infect a human, compared to roughly 50 to 100 particles of flu virus.
