Scientists around the world are already fighting the next pandemic

If a two-year-old child living in poverty in India or Bangladesh gets sick with a common bacterial infection, there is more than a 50% chance an antibiotic treatment will fail. Somehow the child has acquired an antibiotic resistant infection – even to drugs to which they may never have been exposed. How?

Superbugs spread through the environment – and it needs urgent attention.

Moves are afoot in Africa to keep more women in science careers

Women account for 53% of the world’s bachelor’s and master’s degree graduates and 43% of PhD graduates. But they make up only 28% of researchers in all fields.

A number of programmes now exist that are helping to close the gender gap in African science, technology, engineering and maths.

Breakthrough: microbe found to block the transmission of malaria

Researchers have found evidence that the microbe is likely to be sexually transmitted and might be able to release infected male mosquitoes (that do not bite humans) that would infect females.

Mosquitoes that had Microsporidia MB - a tiny parasitic fungus - never became infected with malaria.

Why it's vital to look beyond the hype about repurposed malaria drugs

The wide distribution of chloroquine led to the observation that the drug improved rashes and arthritis in soldiers. Not long after, it was prescribed to lupus and arthritis patients globally.

In the hope of finding a cure for COVID-19, it is easy to get lost in the hype. But chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine should for now be set aside.

Lyme disease symptoms could be mistaken for COVID-19, with serious consequences

When summer flu-like illnesses develop in anyone who spends time outdoors in areas where ticks are common, tick-transmitted diseases like Lyme disease should be considered a likely culprit.

What might look like a mild case of COVID-19 could actually be a bacterial infection from a tick bite, with potentially debilitating symptoms if it goes untreated.

Why maltreatment of Nigerians in China may not end soon

Nigerians’ maltreatment must be understood within the broader maltreatment of Africans in China. This can be traced to the 1960s, when African students began to arrive in China.

In spite of increased economic, political and social interactions, Nigeria-China relations are dented by old and new racism.

Turkic Mongolian slavery and raiding bandits devastated many African tribes since the Hyksos in 1630 BC. Their latest rampage was in Darfur claiming its a civil war between "Arab" and African tribes! The impoverished families in Darfur, Chad, Niger and other countries sold out their kids to be mercenaries to survive. Those child mercenaries are serving the Turkic Mongolian Bedouin rulers of Arabian Peninsula states in their war against Arabs in Yemen and also against African tribes in Sudan.
Child soldiers and militias are everywhere in Sudan Why the U.S. and UK embassies in Khartoum and the African and European embassies and organizations and UN are silent about child soldiers and militias everywhere in Sudan? الجنود الأطفال والميليشيات في كل مكان في السودان لماذا تلتزم سفارتي بريطانيا و الولايات المتحدة في الخرطوم والسفارات والمنظمات الإفريقية والأوروبية والامم المتحدة الصمت تجاه الجنود الأطفال والميليشيات في كل مكان في السودان؟
The Proper Meaning of Islamic terminology and Islamic characteristics We find general and common terms such as Islamic history, Islamic culture, Muslim scholars, Islamic sciences, Islamic law, Islamic countries, Muslim peoples, Muslim rulers and many others. So what is meant by an Islamic term? What is the specific definition of Islam so as not to be confused and misunderstood? Is the meaning of Islam is related to the Muhammadian Sharia/Law/code and the Koran and the Prophet Muhammad pbuh? But the Muhammadian Sharia/Law/code, the Koran and the Prophet Muhammad all affirm that Islam is much, much older than them. So it is clear and strange that the common understanding and common sources attribute Islam to a body while the same body denies this relationship or descent. Where did this relationship or descent come from? And what is the validity of those Islamic terms? The answer is clear and logical, but it is abandoned and even rejected. The true laws/codes are all ways leading to a single Religion, but not any law is a Religion by itself, as well as Muhammadian Sharia/Law/code and is only one of the laws lead to Religion. For example, if a house is located on the road leading to Beirut, it cannot be said that this house is located in Beirut. The Creator sent to every, and each, nation in the universe and in our little earth a messenger and a law in their language to guide them to Religion. And each nation has a name for the Religion and for the Creator according to their language, but the Creator is one and the Religion is one. If there are multiple Religions, it means that there are multiple creators, and this is impossible. The Religion called by the Bharat (who are referred to by a term derived from the Persian language as the Indians) call this Religion “Dharma” meaning the natural law. While the Arabs call this Religion “Islam”; and the Mazdayasna (later became Zoroastrianism) call the same Religion “Asha”, meaning truth and order But the confusion and error in naming the Muhammadian Sharia as Islam or Religion is the result of the kidnapping and falsification of Muhammadian law by the Turkic-Mongolians since the Umayyad era and the following eras and even today; and their use of that Sharia after falsification as means of claiming Religion and giving them justification for invasion and expansion and occupation. Therefore, these false Islamic terms refer to false Muhammadian Law only; because the right meaning of Islamic is Religious, without any definition, and should include all true laws without discrimination in the globe and in the whole universe. The Muhammadian Sharia turned into what is now known as Islam, which deserves to be called the Turkic Islam, to distinction it from true Islam or the Religion. Turkic Islam began to form immediately after the Prophet's migration to Yathrib (now called Medina) after the threat of Arabs, especially Quraysh. Immediately after the emigration to Yathrib, the Muhammadian Law was held hostage by the Bedouins (who are not Arabs and were called Ansar) and Jews, and both were partners of Persians and the Romans, and all of them are Turkic-Mongolians. Then immediately after the death of the Prophet and throughout the period of the Caliphate, they stepped up their campaign against the Muhammadian Law and kidnapped it, and their believers and caliphs were assassinated and poisoned and persecuted. And they ignited the great Fitnas and civil wars; and bought the Umayyad and put them for a short-term in sham power to deceive and appease Quraysh and the Arabs. Then Turkic-Mongolians killed their Umayyad allies and obliterated them and established the Abbasid state which carried out the complete forgery which continues to this day. So it is clear that the Muhammadian Sharia was killed in the cradle and its dress was stole and now pagan idolatry Turkic-Mongolians is wearing it and called itself a religion; but it is in fact an organization that should be called Turkic Islam. The real problem with both Muhammadians and non-Muhammadians is that they cannot part from the old common misconception promoted by corrupt institutions such as Al-Azhar, churches and others since the Umayyad era that Turkic Islam is the Islam and that Islam came only with the Koran and that the Religion has only one name which is Islam. Faith in every Sharia is to follow its messenger and to abide by the specific duties prescribed in its law. And faith in the Muhammadian Sharia is defined by the testimony that there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is a Messenger of Allah and to perform prayers and the provision of Zakat and pilgrimage of the Sacred House. And similarly, the belief in the Sharia of Yeshua (Jesus) is to testimony that there is no god except Elohim and Jesus is a messenger of Elohim and the performance of their worship. The same applies with other uncountable messengers. Original Mazdayasna, not the present form, for example, is one of the oldest codes and faith in it takes to the Religion, but in that nation and other nations the names of Religion are different. Even Kemet (the ancient Egyptians), Kerma (the ancient Nubians), the Assyrians, the Bharat (the ancient Indians), and all European and African nations had their own codes that qualified them to describe as Religious or monotheists, but in each nation the name of Religion was different but its content was the same. No any individual code could not be described rightfully as the Religion or even a religion.
