NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Passengers on a cruise ship docked in Virginia have been sickened with norovirus.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the Balmoral, which is docked Friday in Norfolk, reports 159 crew and passengers have reported being sick. The ship operated by Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines left Britain April 16.

A company spokeswoman, Ruth Burton, says conditions have improved and there are currently just seven guests in isolation. There are more than 1,400 passengers and crew aboard.

The CDC says it plans to have staff to evaluate the ship when it arrives in Baltimore on Saturday or Sunday.

Norovirus can be transmitted from contaminated food or water or an infected person.

(AP) — Public health officials say the first South Carolinian to test positive for Zika virus contracted it while traveling abroad and wasn't contagious upon returning home.

The Department of Health and Environmental Control announced the case Friday.

Dr. Teresa Foo told The Associated Press the person went to the doctor as a precaution, though symptoms experienced while traveling had subsided. Foo gave no details on the person or the trip, citing patient confidentiality.

There have been 426 cases of Zika reported in 50 states — all linked to travel to outbreak areas. The virus is primarily spread through mosquitoes.

MIAMI (AP) — The makeup industry is trying to convince women that looking good on the outside starts from within — but it's unclear whether the products they're trying to hawk are safe and effective.

Big-name beauty companies and retailers including Sephora and Urban Outfitters are rolling out pills and drinkable liquids loaded with exotic herbs, vitamins, seeds, berries and substances such as collagen. The products promise to do things such as firm up skin and improve its natural glow.

The trend is picking up steam. Although a small portion of the $16 billion beauty products market, sales of beauty supplements targeting the face have grown from less than $1 million in 2013 to over $4 million in 2015, according to market

Pity the cats. They're always getting blamed for something.

In the 13th century, Pope Gregory IX declared them evil and worthy of death, which led to their widespread killing. More recently, they've been accused of killing off U.S. birds and other wildlife, as well as of being all-around jerks.

Now there's this: Cats cause road rage.

That's been one common takeaway from a study, published last month in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, that is the latest to link the common parasitic infection toxoplasmosis to behavior changes or psychiatric disorders in humans.

The Zika virus can cause microcephaly, a severe birth defect in which babies are born with abnormally small heads. It is spread by mosquitoes and sexual contact.

HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii officials say they have reached a milestone in controlling the state's dengue fever outbreak now that 30 days have passed since the last known infected person was contagious.

"As we celebrate this milestone today, I think it's critical that everyone understand this is not the end," said Virginia Pressler, director of the state Department of Health.

Hawaii welcomes 200,000 visitors per day, and the state's residents travel to places where dengue fever and the Zika virus — spread by the same mosquitoes — are endemic, Pressler said in a news conference Wednesday.

Since seemingly the dawn of time, people have tried to impale each other with swords.

The carnage morphed slowly into military training and eventually into the sport of modern fencing around the 15th century. Fencing made its Olympic debut with men at the 1896 Games in Athens; women followed suit at the 1924 Games in Paris.

My knowledge of the sport consisted of its two questionable fashion choices: a beekeeper-like mask and white straight jacket. Oh, and that "Murder She Wrote" episode when a character was killed with a poison-coated foil.

Pregnancy experts, including those at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, recommend that most pregnant women get 30 minutes of exercise a day. If that feels a little onerous, consider new findings out of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston suggesting that love of physical activity might start in the womb.

So maybe women who won't exercise for their own sake will do it for the baby.

The research in question involved mice, not women. A team led by Robert A. Waterland, an assistant professor of pediatrics, nutrition, and molecular and human genetics, selected female mice that enjoyed running, according to a press release. ("Enjoyed"? Did they smile?)

Part of the answer has to do with geography: So far, mosquitoes aren't spreading Zika in the mainland U.S. That means for now, the main advice for pregnant women here is to avoid travel to Zika-affected parts of Latin America or the Caribbean. But that could change as mosquito season gets into full swing at home.

Canadian government officials said a person would have to be eligible for health services in Canada to take advantage of the law, which applies to "adults who are suffering intolerably and for whom death is reasonably foreseeable." It says the person must be mentally competent, 18 or older, have a serious and incurable disease, illness or disability and be in an advanced state of irreversible decline of capability.

That image has stuck with me and is reinforced often when I look around and see the many folks walking around who resemble that dying insect with shortened bodies, hunched shoulders and general rounding over. It's the reason I believe we all can benefit from working on our flexibility.

One way to do this is yin yoga. Yin is miles away from the moving and grooving of vinyasa flow yoga or the intense heat and humidity of Bikram.

In a yin class, you'll mostly stay on the floor and hold postures for up to 10 minutes.

When a stoppable force meets an immovable object and ends up in the emergency room, that's physics. When the force instead does a backflip and lands on its feet? That's parkour.

The relatively nascent sport of "freerunning," which emerged on city streets in France during the late 1980s, is a mashup of gymnastics, acrobatics and a think-on-the-fly, urban treasure hunt for new and more challenging obstacles. Like Hollywood wirework without the wires, parkour done well makes a strong case for the argument that gravity plays favorites.

If so, gravity has a mad crush on Dante Grazioli.
