Swine flu virus in India turns even more dangerous, MIT study warns - The Times of India

Swine flu virus in India turns even more dangerous, MIT study warns - The Times of India | Southmoore AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
The swine flu virus in India which has already killed more than 1,500 people since December may have acquired mutations that make it more severe and infectious than previously circulating H1N1 strains, a new MIT study has warned.

Eden Eaves's curator insight, May 24, 9:33 PM

Unit 6

MIT researchers found that the recent Indian strains carry new mutations in the hemagglutinin protein that are known to make the virus more virulent. In the past two years, genetic sequence information of the flu-virus protein hemagglutinin from only two influenza strains from India has been deposited into publicly available influenza databases which makes it difficult to determine exactly which strain is causing the new outbreak and how it differs from previous strains.

Women and Girls in the Afghanistan Transition

Catherine Powell argues that the advances made by Afghan women since the 2001 U.S.-led intervention remain fragile.

Emerald Pina's curator insight, May 19, 9:18 PM

The article talks about how gender  gaps are becoming closer and closer to being closed in Afghanistan. A fellow  for Women and Foreign Policy , Catherine Powell, talks about how the US could gain an upper hand on the gender equality situation in Afghanistan. 

 

This is article relates to Unit 6: Industrialization and Economic Development. The article talks about the issue of gender equality in Afghanistan. This correlates to the fact that gender equality is one of the factors to being considered a developed country. It also gives insight on how the United States are taking a stand tI the inequality issue around the world.

Eden Eaves's curator insight, May 24, 9:27 PM

Unit 6

Afghan women have made strikes in education, the economy, health care, politics, and border civil society since 2001 but these still remain very fragile. It is now time for the United States to take action and close the gender gaps, extend gender- equality gains, and prevent reversal. The advancement of women and girls correlates with gains in stability, security, and development. 

Isabella El-Hage's curator insight, May 26, 7:59 PM

This article discusses how even though efforts have been taken to strengthen the role of women and close the gender gap in Afghanistan, it's not enough, and the conditions on how society treats women, and the opportunities women are provided are still unstable. Catherine Powell, apart of the Women and Foreign Policy Program, argues that now is the prime time for the US to step in and implement diplomacy, defense, and development aid because of presidential elections are occurring. She discusses how improving the living conditions and opportunities for women links to improving education, economy, and the overall health of the country as a whole. 

This article links to Unit Three, Cultural Patterns and Processes, because it discusses women's role in some undeveloped countries, and how developed countries are trying to step in and eliminate the gender gap.
