Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee has been a leader in protecting its students and faculty since the beginning of pandemic by ordering various sizes of the popular sneeze guards sold on their web site www.ViralBlockers.com 

Since the beginning of the pandemic Viral Blockers has been ready for our customers with sneeze guards of all sizes. Sneeze guards protect both employees and visitors by providing a reliable barrier so people don’t get too close to each other avoiding the transmission of the Corona virus. Sneeze Guards protect against coughing and sneezing droplets in areas where social distancing is limited like counters, desk, and retail checkouts. The Centers for Disease Control had recommended that in addition to wearing masks, sneeze guards and partitions should be part of the social distancing protocol.

Some of our largest customers since the beginning of the pandemic have been universities and public-school systems. The typical school will place a sneeze guard on every teacher desk, and in all the administrator’s offices. 

Eric Siversen, president of Viral Blockers has been on the front lines since day one. “Since March we have been shipping out sneeze guards all over the country. Some companies using our products include, Intel, The Hampton Inn chain, Baltimore Ravens, United Way, The University of Central Florida, Texas A&M, The US Airforce, Westminster College, Greenberg Traurig, Turkish Air, Harvard University, Citrix, Marriott Chain, and countless business, and public-school systems throughout the country.  As long as our customers need us we will continue to manufacture and ship acrylic sneeze guards and acrylic products.”

After the recent Vice-Presidential debate with Mike Pence and Kamala Harris, Acrylic sneeze guards were used to form an additional layer of protection between the candidates. We are excited to see how they will be used tonight whether on the main stage or not, as President Trump was recently diagnosed with Covid-19 and has now recovered.

Rare Two-Headed Shark Found By Fisherman, Photos Go Viral

A rare baby shark with two heads was discovered by a fisherman off Palghar coast in the Indian state of Maharashtra last week.

The fisherman, identified as Nitin Patil, threw the six-inch shark back into the sea after taking a few photos of it.

“We do not eat such small fish, especially sharks, so I thought it was strange but decided to throw it anyway,” Patil told local daily the Hindustan Times.

He then showed the photos to other fishermen who told him that it was a rare anomaly. The fishermen in turn shared the photos with researchers from the Indian Council for Agricultural Research – Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (ICAR-CMFRI).

The researchers confirmed that the discovery was a very rare documentation.

“Our records show that double-headed sharks are very rarely reported along the Indian coast. This species appears to be the embryo of the spadenose shark (Scoliodon laticaudus) from the Carcharhinidae family or a sharpnose shark (Rhizoprionodon species). Both are viviparous and are common in Maharashtra waters,” said Dr. Akhilesh KV, scientist at ICAR-CMFRI, told the newspaper.

He went on to say that the heads of the shark were joined behind the gills.

“These are also called dicephaly. This phenomenon is reported in several animal species including sharks, possibly due to mutation or any other embryonic malformation, disorders, and these are very rare reports. Similar cases are reported elsewhere outside the northern Indian Ocean. These materials should be preserved out of scientific interest,” he added.

However, another researcher told the newspaper that the species have a very low survival rate.

“There are hardly any documentations of this species as adults. This finding is purely an aberration. We cannot attribute it to any exact reason. It is regularly seen for snake species or conjoined or Siamese twins in humans. In maximum cases, they do not survive beyond the juvenile stage, but it definitely opens up an avenue for much needed research,” E Vivekanandan, emeritus scientist, ICAR-CMFRI told the newspaper.
