From The Economist:

“Body-disposal teams are credited with checking Ebola in Liberia. But such teams are often attacked in Guinea. Resistance is reported in over a third of prefectures.

At times last year it looked as if Ebola was under control in Guinea, the largest of the affected countries. But health workers have trouble finding the sick. Poor publicity campaigns make it less likely that they come forward. Many believe that foreigners are infecting them. The WHO is now hiring anthropologists to help co-opt local leaders.

Getting to zero infections will be harder the longer it takes. Heavy rains will soon make it difficult to reach remote areas. Health officials also fear complacency. America is pulling its troops out of Liberia. Others may follow. WHO officials complain of a dwindling budget. The jungles of Guinea hid the first case; as long as they hide the last ones, the outbreak is not over.

Tomorrow, I have picket line training and the U of T divestment planning meeting. I also need to do my readings for the Markets and Justice course Tuesday, which is followed by the normal 350 planning meeting. Wednesday, I have three tutorials to teach. Thursday is the strike deadline, with a rally being held. For Thursday evening, I need to put together an agenda for the Toronto350.org board meeting, which I am chairing, as well as try to finalize the bylaws for the organization. Friday there will either be a union meeting in the afternoon to discuss the final offer from the administration or a strike kick-off event. Saturday, I am performing a sketch (yet to be rehearsed) for Massey’s Tea Hut talent show.

In the background, there is the need to finish the brief update, start preparing our presentation for the ad hoc committee, finish my PhD research proposal, find a supervisor, find somewhere to live after May 1st, and find a way to keep summer expenses from killing my bank account.
