Globe and Mail reporter Anna Mehler Paperny reported today on research that is pointing to a new treatment for people infected with the Ebola virus. After explaining how the treatment works and its implications, she concludes:
On a pragmatic level, getting this research published in a well-regarded journal could make it easier for Dr. Kobinger to ask for continued government funding in a cash-strapped environment.
What a pleasingly blunt statement about the economics of publication!
The woman in the bottom left of this photo has a pretty funny sign protesting Bill C-38, the Conservative government’s omnibus budget bill.
Although all online versions I can find are cropped like this one, so that you can only really see the top of her sign, in print in today’s Globe and Mail, it is cropped differently and you can read the whole thing: “The only C38 I trust… is the one I’m wearing!”
