The frightening future of the ebola outbreak is that even after the WHO declares the end of the epidemic, the west african community will continue to feel the economic and social impact for decades. Where there were once daycares there are now orphanages and a region that was already barely stable will have to raise a generation of abandoned survivors.

+Malcolm Gladwell's take on Steven Brill's new book "America's Bitter Pill". I have to agree with the part about Sovaldi. While it's true that it is expensive and can wipe out entire nation's health insurance systems, this stuff is infinitely superior to everything else on the market in terms of cost, side effects and success rate.

Army Surgeon General discusses the strategic future of Army Medicine. Looks like the US Army is starting to take neurological preventative care seriously, especially in sleep maintenance.

Poroshenko carrying the elections should not come as a surprise anybody. With Donbas and Crimea effectively out of the electorate, a combined population of 5 million that consistently and overwhelmingly voted for the Regions, the elections are now always going to go in favor of the pro-western parties instead of being close 52/48 races.

The important implication is that Ukraine will now finally be able to stick to a single economic and social policy instead of hedging between both Europe and Russia. There are, however, important questions that will be answered as time goes by. With the western forces in government, will they deal with Ukraine's endemic corruption or will they merely inherit and continue this system? Similarly, how do the russophiles in the east feel about the overwhelming pro-western victories? If they feel unrepresented, or if the pro-western government turns out to be corrupt, further redrawing of national borders may happen.

That terrifying feeling when Anki starts uploading 2000 media files to the website and you don't know why.

Developments in Vaccines
Cool review of new developments in vaccines in the Economist . The most interesting for me is viral mRNA being reprogrammed to code for antigens instead of the virus itself. Currently the biggest challenge facing vaccines is delivery, largely due to lack of...

Army revises Performance Triad goals. Biggest changes are additional stretch goals for resistance and aerobic fitness to account for the fact that most active duty soldiers were already fulfilling the original performance targets.

Free text responses are definitely superior to multiple choice as a teaching tool. Forcing retrieval and production produces better retention of the content rather than only improving recognition strength. However, there is a question of logistics that is important and can't be ignored. If you simply don't have the manpower and time to review and grade free text answers, this is not a viable tool to implement. One can't design best practices in a vacuum and then implement them in reality, that's how you end up with the modern health care system.
