  2. A brilliant presentation Michael! I don’t know how but as I tried yet again it suddenly opened and I was able to read it right through.
    You are right, too much emphasis is placed on cats spreading toxoplasmosis and not enough on sensible hygiene and cooking meat properley (or go veggie…couldn’t resist lol) but as with everything else it’s far too easy for cat haters to take no responsibility and to blame cats instead.

  3. For some reason my computer won’t open this Michael, I tried yesterday and just tried again today with no luck, pity as I’m sure it must be good. So sorry I can’t make any helpful comment.
    I just noticed that only Marc has commented, so wonder if anyone else has the same problem as me or is it just you are computer geniuses and I’m not lol

    • What a shame. I’d like to have a look at your set up. Can you see the prezi on the page? I presume you can but can’t run it. I’ll check this out with 4 and 10 year computers I have and make a further comment.

  4. Wow Michael, I really love this new medium. It’s amazing what you can do with the power of zoom. It seems to have so much potential as a teaching/learning tool.

    It would seem that the nay sayers harp on the one important fact that stray cats are the main cause of the spread of the disease to humans and other animals. They need to keep it in perspective by considering the fact that most actual cases of it don’t come from cats. Nonethelss if there were less stray cats then maybe less people would end up catching it because less animals would get it – or something to that effect.

    What I like the most is that most people in France are immune. I would really like to understand why that is so. Do more people get it? There aren’t more stray cats on average. Its very interesting. Are the French less careful when gardening and handling raw meat and so on. Is it passed down through generations somehow… and being an ‘old’ country then most people have it. I’m very curious about this one little statistic mentioned.

    • The France/America comparison is interesting. I have no information as to why that stark difference exists. It would seem that the French have been exposed more and acquired immunity. Maybe it is the sport of boules ;)…..picking up those bowls and the ground is contaminated and has been for centuries but the French had no idea….LOL.

      Pleased you like the presentation. It is my second. It is not easy work. I guess you realise that.

      • LOL – excellent theory Michael. It makes perfect sense too! Love it. Now there’s a reason to head down to the village square and play couple of games with the old guys. It might save your life. 🙂
