Malaria:The Ultimate Guide To Its Eradication And Extinction

 Malaria cannot be confined by boundaries, having been found to affect people in all the continents of the world. Without much saying, it is very glaring that malaria as a disease has been a scourge to mankind. It is on records that the first officially known treatment of malaria came by the way of using quinine extracted from the bark of the “Cinchona” tree also known as the “Jesuits bark” in Viceregal Palace in Lima, Peru, in 1938. Quinine went on to become the only compelling treatment for malaria until the 1920’s. Scientists went into the laboratories all over the world trying to find a way of synthetically producing this “wonder” drug and in 1944, they were able to discover the structure of the alkaloid molecule C20H24N2O2. Variants of quinine have been produced since then, with some having serious side effects to the extent that their usages have been discouraged but the astounding thing is that the ravages of this disease have by no means abated to an appreciable degree. The World Health Organization (WHO), reported that nearly half of the world’s population is at a risk of malaria and that in 2015, there were roughly 212 million malaria cases…

4 Ways Wars Contribute Significantly To Underdevelopment

4 Ways Wars Contribute Significantly To Underdevelopment   A war in whatever form is “an ill wind that blows no good.” If we have to go down memory lane, we will discover this to be very true.   Right from the time of the early man, wars were fought for the purposes of annexation, domination, and sometimes outright eradication of a race or people. They have always been brutally executed.   In the event of a war, any sense of decorum is thrown to the winds, children are killed, maimed, and women are raped and abused at will. Often, women and girls are regarded as booties of war.   In the book Mein Kampf ( “My Struggle” ) written by Adolf Hitler while in prison in the 1920s, he made a strong case for his theory of the Jews’ racial inferiority. That was one of the reasons he did everything possible to wipe out any trace of that entire face during the 2nd world war.   In the entire history of mankind, there is no single war that was fought for any developmental purposes. A quick run through the world’s top ten biggest wars in history will clearly point out…

9 Effective Ways to Get The Best From Your Employees

9 Effective Ways to Get the Best From Your Employees   A business setup has never been and should never be seen as a one-man show. It has its appendages and all must work together in order to achieve the best result.   Productivity from the angle of fundamental economics bothers on land, capital, labor, and entrepreneurship. All are equally important and if any of the four is relegated to the background, the business will surely suffer a devastating blow.   It will not be out of place to even say that the central and coordinating factor among the four is labor which can be translated in another word as employees. Employees make all the other factors to function as a single flowing unit.   For this reason, we can safely conclude that once the employee is removed from the chain, the whole stuff will crumble. It can be likened to when the heart just simply packs up in a body, the body is only fit for the city morgue.   It will be suicidal for you as a businessman to toy with your employees. Once you start playing games with them nobody needs to tell you that you are…

4 Advantages That Will Effectively Make You a Startup Graduate

4 Advantages That Will Effectively Make You a Startup Graduate   So much has been said about startups to the effect that anybody talking about startups today may be considered to be archaic or rather out of vogue. This, however, is far from the truth, it’s rather a raging issue.   As in any other business venture, a lot of liabilities and assets will be involved. Talking about a system that gulps millions of dollars can’t be seen as a joke. Startups are very big money spinning ventures and should be seen so.   A lot of people out there are still confused, some just believe that once you have a set up which can range from a barber’s shop to a restaurant and possibly a pump station, that you are a startup.   For a company to fall into the category of startups, it must be able to claim a freshness that suggests a finger on the pulse of the future. It is not very important if the outfit is profit or non-profit oriented.   Chase Adam, founder of Watsi, a medical crowdfunding charity startup had this to say ”All we focus on is growth and impact – at…

Redirecting The Human’s Killer Instinct For More Resourceful Goals

Redirecting The Human’s Killer Instinct For More Resourceful Goals   The most important thing to any form of nature is the ability to survive. For this all-important reason of survival, nature from the microform to the man regarded as the most intelligent can go to any length to ultimately sharpen and enhance the survival instincts.   In the basic and rudimentary form, the most important thing to enhance survival is food. Food is the source of energy that propels nature. Without food, the only other thing is death and given the opportunity any form of nature wants to prolong its life.   I must also point out that water, air, clothing, shelter, and mate are all basic needs for the survival of nature, but amongst all food is the most difficult to come by.   Among the living forms of nature, there is the propensity for utmost competition for food and this gave rise to the survival of the fittest. It is the attribute of humans and other living things to hunt for food.   This hunger for food and its search has led to the migrational attitude of nature. The question anybody may want to ask is if plants…

How Electric Vehicles Will Help In Nature’s Equilibrium

The earth has seen and witnessed a lot of catastrophic events ranging from a tsunami, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and hurricanes. None of these anytime we have an occurrence leaves us in a happy mood.   People are killed, buildings and structures damaged, and the environment at large is destabilized. What we generally do not give so much thought to, when these occurrences take place are the trees and other organisms both macro and micro that are displaced and invariably killed.   All these as the biologists will say make up the ecosystem and there is no doubt about it, they play very significant and vital roles in the equilibrium of nature.   We need to tell ourselves the hard truth and that is that most of these catastrophic events are initiated by us through some of the actions we carry out.   Such actions like gas flaring, greenhouse gas emission, discharge of toxic wastes into the atmosphere, and exploration of crude oil contribute in no small measures towards the heating up of the earth and the attendant global warming.   These actions of ours have been banging nature from right, left, and center. When nature can no longer take the…
