Swine acute diarrhea syndrome coronavirus

Swine acute diarrhea syndrome coronavirus is a coronavirus related to Rhinolophus bat coronavirus HKU2. It is transmitted through the feces of horseshoe bats to pigs. Piglets less than 5 days old die with a probability of 90%. SADS-CoV was identified during the Severe acute respiratory syndrome outbreak caused by Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus in Guangdong 2018 onwards, where it caused the death of more than 24,000 piglets on 4 farms. Current research says; the fear remains that such a virus can mutate and become dangerous for humans. Researches as well made clear, while bats carry zoonotic viruses, they are important for a well balanced ecosystem; some for example eat mosquitos which carry dangerous diseases like malaria, yellow fever, zika fever and others. The SADS-CoV in the pigs was found to be 98.48% genetically identical to one collected in anal swabs of the Chinese rufous horseshoe bat, Least horseshoe bat, king horseshoe bat, intermediate horseshoe bat. This is called metagenomics analysis.

Second-generation sequencing called NGS, was used. It was demonstrated that NGS, luciferase immunoprecipitation system serology and phylogenetic analysis can be used before the virus is isolated

Jersey Shore

The Jersey Shore is the coastal region of the U. S. state of New Jersey. Geographically, the term encompasses about 141 miles of oceanfront bordering the Atlantic Ocean, from Perth Amboy in the north to Cape May Point in the south; the region includes Middlesex, Ocean and Cape May counties. Many New Jersey residents refer to it as The Shore. Most of the shore region is located in South New Jersey. Famous for its many boardwalks with arcades, amusement parks, water parks boasting hundreds of rides and attractions, the Jersey Shore is a popular vacation spot with residents of North Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania. Certain shore communities are popular with visitors from the nearby states of Maryland and Virginia, as well as the Canadian province of Quebec. Due to New Jersey's peninsular geography, both sunrise and sunset are visible over water from different points on the Jersey Shore. Hurricane Sandy in 2012 devastated much of the northern part of the region, spawned the demolition and rebuilding of entire neighborhoods, with reinvention on a physically and financially elevated and economically upscale level.

The Jersey Shore is lined with over 40 different towns and communities, each with a different character and flavor. Many cater extensively to summer tourists, others are full-year residential communities, while some are a mix of both; the towns listed below are ordered north to south. Perth Amboy, along with neighboring South Amboy across the Raritan River, make up The Amboys. Perth Amboy was a resort town in the 19th century and early 20th century, located on the northern edge of the Raritan Bayshore. Since the early 1990s Perth Amboy has seen redevelopment. Small businesses have started to open up, helped by the city's designation as an urban enterprise zone; the waterfront has seen a rebirth, with new parks, a new promenade and an expansion of the marina complimenting the old Victorian homes along the bay. Local attractions include Kearny Cottage; the Raritan Yacht Club, in is one of the oldest yacht clubs in the United States. Laurence Harbor looks directly upon Staten Island's southern shore.

The railroad, which no longer has a station in Laurence Harbor, divides the community into eastern and western sections, the former being locally referred to as'The Front'. Cliffwood Beach borders Laurence Harbor when traveling south. Morgan is named after the 1703 family that had 645 acres here and were cousins of the infamous pirate captain Henry Morgan. Morgan is located one mile to the northwest, across the Cheesequake Creek and the Morgan Bridge on New Jersey Route 35; the Morgan Draw carries the North Jersey Coast Line. Laurence Harbor is home to Old Bridge Waterfront Park, which consists of a new boardwalk, completed in 2002; the beachfront was redone through a joint venture by Old Bridge Township, New Jersey and Middlesex County Parks Department. It extends one mile from the Old Bridge Police substation south, to the Aberdeen Township neighborhood of Cliffwood Beach, runs parallel with New Jersey Route 35; this area is popular for fishing as three jetties extend into Raritan Bay and are in excellent condition recently redone in the past ten years.

The park's boardwalk is popular for jogging and dog walking. At the northern parking lot of the park, there is bay beach swimming access along with a bathroom and showers. Keansburg was a popular early 20th century summertime destination for tourists from New York City, who would cross the Raritan Bay on steamboats to escape the city heat. Hurricane Donna wiped out much of the waterfront area in 1960, a number of fires in the 1980s destroyed many of the town's main attractions, including the Dance Hall Auditorium, the Keansburg Bowling Alley and the Casino Theater; the Keansburg Amusement Park, founded in 1904, started a massive expansion project in 1995. Upgrades were made to the park and an adjacent water park, Runaway Rapids, was constructed Atlantic Highlands, which overlooks where the Atlantic Ocean and Raritan Bay meet at Sandy Hook, contains Mount Mitchill, the highest point on the eastern seaboard south of Maine, rising 266 feet above sea level; the Manhattan skyline can be seen from its shoreline.

Pleasure and commuter boats sail from its harbor, built from 1938 through 1940. It is the largest on the East Coast, home to 715 craft including the high-speed SeaStreak ferry service to New York City, introduced in 1986. Sandy Hook is a long, narrow undeveloped barrier spit, most of, owned and managed by the National Park Service as a unit of the Gateway National Recreation Area; the eastern, ocean-facing shoreline consists of various public and fishing beaches, considered among the finest in New Jersey and a popular destination for recreation in summer when seasonal SeaStreak ferries bring beachgoers. Sandy Hook's Gunnison Beach is one of the largest clothing optional beaches on the East Coast; the northern end of the peninsula is home to the Sandy Hook Lighthouse, the Marine Academy of Science and Technology, the restored buildings of Fort Hancock, a former United States Army base.
