Here is a roundup of stories that caught my eye during the last 5 weeks as I always try to keep an eye on what’s going on even if I’m not actively posting….

Sexually transmitted Ebola? – really?! this from survivors of the disease
Gene patents likely dead after Australian high court decision– as it should be….
