Touch Surfaces and how microbes spread

Image
With the advent of the rapid spread of H1N1 it is often a challenge to explain the need to be vigilant about hand hygiene. CNN's Randi Kaye reporting on Anderson Cooper 360 reports on how germs from one sneeze can spread to hundreds, maybe thousands. The video has a great animation and illustrates the risks associated with common objects will all encounter each day.

  1. You have a bad link there. I tried to fix it but I can't seem to find the video online.
  2. Linked worked... I checked... it plays a commercial first then the video. I linked it from the CNN source page...
  3. Here is the link that gets you to the video.... http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/bestoftv/2009/04/30/kaye.anatomy.of.a.sneeze.cnn?iref=videosearch How do you edit a link?
  4. I fixed it. With embedding video we do it ""automagically"" All you need to do is enter in the link to the page the video is on. However, it brings up a good question that may require a sentence of explanation on the submit page. Supported video sites include YouTube, SciVee.tv, DailyMotion, MetaCafe, DNAtube and afew more. Unfortunately CNN is not one of those sites. In cases like these you just have to click the source URL.
