Parasite babies

November 19, 2009 - 03:07 -- Rina Wong

I set up 7 x 96 well plates yesterday for testing drug interactions between antimalarials. Thank God for electronic multichannel pipettors! Even then I need to be careful not to develop RSI.

It's interesting to tell people that I breed malaria parasites here, feeding them, changing their nappies daily, checking on their health.. as strange as it sounds, they're like my babies.

I really enjoyed the MIM conference at Nairobi.
It was great to see so many people keen to interact, share knowledge and to communicate freely via this great MalariaWorld platform. This will surely open many doors for us young scientist.
Thank you MalariaWorld!

Malaria Eradication: How Realistic Is It?

November 10, 2009 - 17:53 -- Fredros Okumu

Following the Bill and Melinda Gates declaration in 2007 that malaria eradication is their lifeterm goal, nearly every researcher and policy maker thinks this is feasible. The WHO has also made this a long term global target. I believe this agenda is too immature to be impemented in many malaria endemic countries, most of which are developing still. It will likely lead to imbalanced resource allocation for managing many other different diseases.

What is the Semantic Web? The guy given credit for inventing the internet, Tim Berners-Lee, explains:

"I have a dream for the Web [in which computers] become capable of analyzing all the data on the Web – the content, links, and transactions between people and computers. A ‘Semantic Web’, which should make this possible, has yet to emerge, but when it does, the day-to-day mechanisms of trade, bureaucracy and our daily lives will be handled by machines talking to machines. The intelligent agents; people have touted for ages will finally materialize"

SysAdmin appreciation day

System Administrator Appreciation Day, also known as Sysadmin DaySysAdminDay or SAAD, was created by system administrator Ted Kekatos. Kekatos was inspired to create the special day by a Hewlett-Packard magazine advertisement in which a system administrator is presented with flowers and fruit-baskets by grateful co-workers as thanks for installing new printers.

The holiday exists to show appreciation for the work of sysadmins and other IT workers. It is celebrated on the last Friday in July. The first System Administrator Appreciation Day was celebrated on July 28, 2000. The next holiday is Friday, July 30, 2010.

Expert Blogging as we speak

September 29, 2009 - 14:08 -- Guest (not verified)

 

In 2005, a group of Episcopal Church members visited a remote community located quite literally “at the end of the road” in eastern Zambia.

They found people suffering and dying from malaria because they had no understanding of malaria prevention and no access to nets and effective treatment.

Realizing these communities were beyond the reach of the national health system, the group was inspired by the idea of using the church to teach malaria prevention and deliver nets in the isolated communities it served.
