Here you can read some considerations and reflections you write down the other day at class.  Just read it and we will comment it.
  •  Firstly, we must heal Ebola in Africa because we are waiting too much.
  • I hope WHO looks for a vacinne to eradicate Ebola soon, just before it was too late.
  • Speaking about Teresa, I stand out politicians accusing her of being responsible of her infection.  I would like they were in her shoes.
  • I hadn't killed Teresa Romero's dog because it is not verified that it had Ebola and even so if the dog had been sick, we would have tried to save it.
  • Probably it isn't as easy to get infected with Ebola as everybody think.
  • Symptoms are very similar to other diseases like swine fever:  vomiting, headache, fever, and also the way of infection: through fluids, secretions and contaminated blood.
  • People in Spain should have been properly informed when it was decided to pick the missionaries up from Africa and so some of the risks had been avoided.
  • I think Ebola has been introduced in Europe by pharmaceutical businessmen to get money and power.
  • What is the truth about the Ebola?  Do we know everything?  Is the government behind?

Good evening,

We are going to start a new topic which unfortunately is on everybody's mouth at present days.

Everyone takes for granted that new illnesses are coming up and others are already eradicated, but in fact everything is more complicated, mainly if we focus on the third-world countries.

So, think about illness versus health, think about medical ressources and habits, think about our comfortable world and about other country risky situations, think about...  know about...  and try to make an article about it.  It would be interesting to work in couples but you can do it individually if you prefer.

Let us know your impressions, worries, concerns, ... about illness versus health, about differences among countries, about politicians and politics, about...  

You can also look for information or figures in different webpages and add it to your articles, you can search videos, news, ... whatever you want, whatever you need, nowadays ebola is a controversial issue, a hot potato difficult to deal with. 

Your articles can be compositions, expositions, interviews, questionnaires, presentations, photographs, figures, questions, considerations, thoughts, ideas,.... or a mix of everything.   I will help you with whichever you need, you just tell me.  And just try to do your best!
