    By Lisa Esapa, CDC-Nigeria For the last few months, there has been a constant buzz about Ebola among my friends and colleagues in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria. Everyone had a theory about if, when, or how Ebola would come to Nigeria. When we heard about a probable case in Lagos, my heart sank. Lagos is one of the most densely populated cities in the world, with a population of 15 to 20 million people. Lagos is crowded and loud, with sprawling slum areas that occupy the spaces between the river banks, markets, and developed areas. The stakes for stopping this outbreak from spreading are…

    Poland, Lubin It’s getting colder, profound silence which surrounds me, makes me hear sounds, that don ‘t really exist. Strange rustling in the garden has nearly given me a heart attack. It turned out to be a hedgehog. I don’t try to hide the fact that, in spite of being a man, I don’t feel confident here. The moon shines really bright and shadows, which appear in my garden are really giving me the creeps. Many things may go wrong. I may not manage to scare them away and they may break into the house. The money is not inside, however, they would certainly find a way to make me tell…

    By Victoria Harp CDC leads the nation in responding to public health emergencies, such as outbreaks and natural disasters. While the agency encourages the public to be aware of personal and family preparedness, not all CDC staff  follow those guidelines. In an effort to increase personal preparedness as part of workforce culture, CDC created the Ready CDC initiative. Targeting the CDC workforce living in metropolitan Atlanta, this program recently completed a pilot within the organization and is currently being evaluated for measurable improvements in recommended personal preparedness…

    Poland, Lubin Having came back home, I saw little indentations on burglar-proof window shade, which protects the window next to the front door. I began inspection, starting from kitchen windows and ended looking at those, at the back of the house, where traces of attempted intrusion, where more visible. On the lawn, which wasn’t moved for a very long time, I noticed footprints of, at least, three men. Somebody knew, that I’ve recently made some money and wanted to unceremoniously pocket them. They have surely made a lot of noise, perchance, neighbours called the cops- that would…

    Africa, Zambia, Kariba Lake, — First birds have drifted away — short communicate from Richard made Serahim sprung to his feet. Everything had been already prepared. Jeep stood in front of the hangar, fully loaded. Serahim jumped into the cabin and turned the engine on, then, he set the coordinates and hit the road, churning up clouds of dust. After thirty minutes of road rage, he finally reached the first nest, surrounded by reed, situated just at lakeside. He opened the trunk and placed the sprayer about four meters from the nest. Birds were chirping joyously, but it didn’t ease…

    Africa, Zambia, Kariba Lake Stretching about one hundred forty miles and twenty-five wide, Kariba lake, is an immense reservoir of sweet water on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. This lake, one of a kind, developed because of an activity of the man. A few decades ago people decided to build a dam on its northeastern side. Initially barren body of water, has been settled by new species of plants and animals, during the last few decades, turning into vibrant oasis, where we can observe such majestic animals as elephants, crocodiles or hippos. Birds from all over the Europe fly thousands miles…

    Poland, Lubin   I had another very busy day. I have already prepared everything and my plants should release from the ground in the next five days. For the whole day I shuttered from the pavement to the kitchen in order to eat something and listen to the news. On every channel they sound off about a suicidal attack in London. Supposedly, some guy blew up the whole floor of the police department. Seventeen people died. Circumstances and motives are not known yet. According to certain sources, the scientist who had sprayed some substance at Heathrow airport died in that suicide bombing.
