WHO-directeur: Ebola-aanpak is spiegel van de samenleving

WHO-directeur: Ebola-aanpak is spiegel van de samenleving | Sociological Imagination | Scoop.it
"De farmaceutische industrie heeft onvoldoende geanticipeerd op de huidige ebola-uitbraak." Die stelling neemt de Wereld Gezondheidsorganisatie in de mond. De ziekte kan volgens de WHO niet behandeld worden omdat nog onvoldoende onderzoek is gedaan en dat feit is een afspiegeling van de samenleving, aldus de WHO.
nadia dresscher's insight:

Ebola and Inequality.

In Relationships, Be Deliberate

In Relationships, Be Deliberate | Sociological Imagination | Scoop.it
For milestones like moving in together, intent (rather than chronology) determines success.
nadia dresscher's insight:

A report released today from the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia looks at the many factors that predict a high quality marriage. More than one thousand Americans, 18 to 35 years old, who were in a relationship were recruited into the study. Within five years, 418 of those individuals got married. Galena Rhoades (a co-author of this article) and Scott Stanley, both at the University of Denver, looked closely at those who married, probing into their relationship history with their spouse, their relationships with others, and the quality of their marriages.
