Pass cursor to new Activity

 I'm working on an app, and one activity has a worker thread that
initiates a database query, and if there are results once it has
returned I would like to send these results to a new activity that
will display them. Unfortunately I don't see a way to pack the Cursor
object into the Intent object that I am using to start the new
activity. When I was doing Windows Mobile development in the past all
I would do is edit the constructor for the window to pass in the data,
I've searched around but I can't find a similar solution for Android.
What is the best way to pass my database results into the new activity?

Have the new activity do the database work in the first place.
