Researchers in China have found a new form of swine flu that can infect humans—and they say it has the potential to cause another pandemic in the future.

It is from a science website. They have put a hyphen after 'humans'. Why would they do it?

this is not hyphen but M dash or N dash

Hi,
Lately I’ve been having problems with neurons not loading correctly...yesterday (4/22/20) I read each category/topic, and the challenge where I also earned 10 new words, but they weren’t recorded, thus, I failed the task also I have read some of the other topics and they weren’t credited in my totals ...something is wrong... I haven’t had any trouble for a long time I do not have windows 10, or participate in any social medias, so I'm sure it’s only a glitch...

BTW I love the TFD ...but you guys knew that already!
Please check it out...

Thank you,
hedy mmm

Maybe you were not having internet connection or your internet was showing as working but in reality it was not working. It happens when you dont have internet connection otherwise its not possible to not credit the points

Topic: Huxley More Important than Orwell as to the Loss of Democracy?
Posted: Sunday, May 3, 2020 9:52:52 AM
As an admirer of Orwell, I have always maintained that when it comes to politics, no book is as sacred as 1984, or Animal Farm. But for a short time now, I am being aware of the great book "Brave New World" by Huxley. As I have read the reviews of both books, and have grasped 1984, I am in no doubt that Huxley's book is more closer to reality than our beloved Orwells'. I will start reading it soon. But I like the terminology Orwell used in the book.
