Many thanks to +Jane Sarasohn-Kahn for sharing this article from +The Economist on Twitter earlier today. Nicely sums up the challenges we face when trying to answer the question, "But how much does it cost?" in the doctor's office.

For most Americans, buying a procedure is akin to choosing a house blindfolded, signing a mortgage in Aramaic, then discovering the price later.

Word-nerds, enjoy this list of collective nouns for animals. My personal favorites include:

A parliament of owls
A bloat of hippopotami
An aurora of polar bears

I wrote a bit about training for community management and the new program that +The Community Roundtable, WOMMA and +ComBlu are offering.

Would love to hear what you guys think!

"In Rwanda, we are always ready to kindly accompany NGOs to the airport when they are not willing to work with us towards our vision and our plan." - Dr. Agnes Binagwaho, Minister of Health, Rwanda

Our Expert Panel Discussion over at GHDonline is off to a pretty amazing start. If you're interested in global health, NGOs, or curious about strengthening health systems, I hope you'll check out the discussion and share it with other folks who might be interested!

"France has the fifth largest economy in the world, with a gross domestic product of nearly $2.6 trillion. The United States spends on health care alone what the 65 million people in France spend on everything: education, defense, the environment, scientific research, vacations, food, housing, cars, clothes and health care. In other words, our health care spending is the fifth largest economy in the world."

Read the whole thing.
