I know this is not my usual " Fun " selection but because I was asked to write on my blog some info about "The Bird Flu" which has affected a lot of the birds in KSA, a lot of people had asked me to post information on it.. so I found these informative podcasts to go through ( I am a very visual person so I tend to like videos and podcasts ).. I have also gathered some articles on Fun Lilliy del.icio.us under the tag "Bird-Flu" or "Avian-Flu" , and I will put a concise summery on the subject with in the next few days.. for now just for you to get an idea, I am posting these clips ( by the way it was made by Vets but they included information on human infection which is why I started with part 3 first, and they did a good job on their podcast)
A very informative site with good information on The Bird Flu ( that I recommend looking at) is on eMedicineHealth.com which has information to non medical people, but they are thorough. This is the link:

When I looked up the WHO site and their updates on the Avian Influenza I didn't see any Confirmed Human Cases of Avian Influenza A/(H5N1) Reported to WHO in KSA in their Dec 4, 2007 report.
They had a nice video on The Global Influenza Surveillance that you can watch if you are interested.
The WHO is monitoring what is being done in KSA with regards The Bird Flu outbreak which is reported to be within birds only, no reports of any human infections. Here is the link to the article in Arabnews:
