A Doctor Finding Cure For HIV/ Aids

It's inspiring to know how some doctors would go out of their way to help the less fortunate people.   Dr Ann Duerr was brought up to be a scientist.  Her dad is a scientist and so she was expected to follow the same path. She did for some time until she was taken to a different path when she decided to take a post-graduate course in Asia.

While taking up her  PhD in Biologic Sciences, Dr Ann Duerr was exposed to the living conditions in third world countries.  She was floored with the challenges people living in the third world countries suffer.  From then on she promised herself to do something to help.  After finishing her PhD she started researching about parasitic diseases relevant to the third world and finish her Post Doctorate degree in Cairo and completed her residency training at Harvard and John Hopkins.

Dr Ann Duerr how spread AIDS epidemic in Africa became while at John Hopkins and decided to make a switch from studying tropical diseases to studying AIDS and finding the vaccine to cure it.  At the moment she is doing extensive research finding answers all over the world about this pandemic and have published several materials regarding biological and epidemiological determinants of HIV transmission and more.

Walking Sticks And Canes As Fashion Accessory?

Men have very limited fashion accessories and props to make them stand out in a crowd.  Fedora hats, blazers and leather jackets are just everywhere.  Maybe its time for them to find something else that will make them stand out, and yes I suggest walking canes  or sticks.

I know that they were thought of as a tool to assist someone to be steadier in their feet but Charlie Chaplin and Dr. Gregory House definitely did not need assisting with their walking.

One Hour Translation Services

If you are living, visiting or transacting business internationally it is very likely that you meet people who don't know how to speak or write in English.  I have been to Hong Kong couple of times and most of them don't know how to speak English fluently more so writing it.  I've heard that most people in Japan don't speak English well too that's why they require those who want to work in their country to speak their language.

If you are in these countries and transacting business or just reading some papers and would like to understand whatever they mean without the pain of learning the language for a couple of months, you could use online translation services.

Translia offers professional translation services and can deliver it in an hour.  You will need credits to avail of their services for a mere $1.00 for 100 credits!  Their language translation services is available in 129 languages worldwide, which includes translation of Filipino, French, Japanese, Korean, Greek, German, and more.
