By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention "may never know" how a fairly harmless form of bird flu was cross-contaminated with a dangerous bird flu strain before it was sent to a laboratory outside of the CDC, an agency spokesman said on Monday. The CDC disclosed the bird flu incident as part of an internal investigation into the agency's mishandling of live anthrax in June, potentially exposing dozens of its own lab workers to the pathogen. While no humans fell ill as a result of the bird flu breach, CDC Director Dr Thomas Frieden has called it “the most distressing" in a series of safety breaches at the agency because of the public risk posed by the virus.

- MH17 Plane Crash Site Seen from Space (Photo)
Satellites have captured images of the scattered debris and charred wreckage from last week's crash of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 in eastern Ukraine that killed all 298 people on board. DigitalGlobe, a Colorado-based company, programmed three of the five Earth-watching satellites in its commercial fleet to look at the crash site shortly after the plane was shot down by a missile on Thursday, July 17. DigitalGlobe was finally able to capture clear, high-resolution images of the crash site yesterday (July 20) and today (July 21). In the top half of the image, the main debris field can be seen inside a blackened splotch of earth near the village of Hrabove in the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine, which has been embroiled in conflict as Ukrainian forces and Russian-backed separatists fight for control of the region.

Samsung’s Galaxy S5, the company’s latest hero phone, is a perfect example, and the handset’s water-resistant treatment will end up saving consumers tons of money and plenty of aggravation by helping the phone survive spills and quick dunks. But what about those of us with handsets like the iPhone or various Android models that don’t feature any waterproofing? As it turns out, there may be a cheap product that can help.
