The Coronavirus and the Urgent Need to Redefine National Security
Melvin Goodman | counterpunch.org | 2020-03-25
For far too long, the United States has been wastefully spending its precious budgetary resources on a nineteenth-century military strategy and a strategic arms policy that has brought no advantages to the American people.

In 2017, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave a grad…

[Comment] No time to waste: preventing tuberculosis in children
Jonathon R Campbell, Mayara L Bastos | thelancet.com | 2020-03-21
Tuberculosis takes the life of one in five children developing the disease.1 Data from the pre-chemotherapy era suggest very young children are at highest risk for tuberculosis after exposure, and highly susceptible to the most severe forms of the disease.2,3 As a result, tuberculosis control efforts among children in high-burden countries are focused on those below 5 years of age.2 One of the most important efforts is provision of tuberculosis preventive therapy after tuberculosis exposure, yet only one in four children below 5 years of age who might benefit from life-saving preventive therapy will receive it.
