How The Ebola Epidemic Could Lead To Its Own Demise

First recognized in March in Guinea, this Ebola epidemic is the worlds worst outbreak of the virus and has killed over 700 people. Fruit bats are considered to be the host of the painful virus that kills between 60 and 90 percent of people who contract it, but thankfully it does not have the potential to igniting a global pandemic. Still, the West African nations affected by the Ebola outbreak are plagued by violence and have weak health care systems, a combination that makes it extremely difficult to snuff the outbreak. Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone have declared statements of emergency and are banning public meetings and closing schools. Could the outbreak spread to the US, and could this virus, largely ignored by drug companies for 40 years, finally attract appropriate attention?

Eradicating Polio Is Truly Within Reach

Incredible work by UNICEF, the WHO, the Gates Foundation, and Rotary International have quashed endemic polio in all but three countries: Nigeria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

America’s Homeless Problem


The homeless population is on the rise in the US, and unfortunately so are laws that criminalize homelessness. Cities are outlawing sitting on sidewalks and donating food instead of focusing their energy on drafting better solutions. We need to stop punishing the down-and-out and figure out a better way to provide basic human needs.
