?I was at an anthropology field school in Guatemala. ?I was...



"I was at an anthropology field school in Guatemala.  I was twenty-two.  And I was having a crisis.  I had no idea what I wanted to do after college.  I remember sitting at a café with my favorite professor, and he told me: 'If you were my daughter, I'd tell you to go into law.  From there you can work on anything: healthcare, policy, human rights.'   So when I returned home, I began to study for the LSAT.  I spent four years getting my Master's in International Law, with a concentration in human rights and environmental justice.  Then last year I moved to New York to pursue a job in my chosen field.  But that's not exactly what happened.  I've arranged meetings with twenty-five different attorneys to 'better understand the field.'  And I'm always hoping to say the right words to catch their attention.  It's poor form to say: 'I need a job.'   But at the end of every meeting, I always ask: 'Do you know any opportunities that I should be pursuing?'  And the answer is always 'no.'  I do have a job right now, and I work hard at it, but it's mainly reviewing records and writing letters.  It's not the path I wanted to be on.  And the longer you work in another field, the harder it can be to transition.  I've always wanted to make an impact.  Ruth Bader Ginsburg is my idol.  And I worked hard on this.  I studied my ass off, I was valedictorian, I got into a great school, and got great scholarship money.  I've had a job since I was sixteen.  I focused on two or three friends.  I didn't date.  This was supposed to be my thing.  And now it's not working out.  I'll never be in my twenties again.  Or living in New York. But I'm having a hard time enjoying it because I'm so focused on this one path that's not opening up."

Nancy Pelosi's office on Friday accused the Trump administration of leaking the House speaker's plans to fly commercially to Afghanistan to complete her scheduled visit with U.S. troops—and forcing the cancelation of her trip due to security concerns.

The administration's alleged leak is the latest in a series of jabs between the speaker and the president. Pelosi (D-CA) drew first blood on Wednesday, when she called on Trump to cancel his State of the Union address until the shutdown has ended.

President Trump responded yesterday by canceling Pelosi's planned diplomatic trip to Brussels and Afghanistan, writing in a letter to the speaker that "I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over."

"Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative," he added.

Pelosi's Deputy Chief of Staff Drew Hammill said on Twitter Friday that the speaker had planned to do just that.

"After President Trump revoked the use of military aircraft to travel to Afghanistan, the delegation was prepared to fly commercially to proceed with this vital trip to meet with our commanders and troops on the front lines," Hammill wrote.

But that plan hit its first snag late Thursday night, Hammill said, when the State Department's Diplomatic Security Service gave Pelosi's team an updated threat assessment. The assessment said that "the President announcing this sensitive travel had significantly increased danger to the delegation & to troops, security, & other officials supporting trip," he wrote.

Things got worse Friday morning, Hammill continued. "This morning, we learned that the Administration had leaked the commercial travel plans as well," he saidadding that "In light of the grave threats caused by the President's action, the delegation has decided to postpone the trip so as not to further endanger our troops and security personnel, or the other travelers on the flights."

An aide to Pelosi told The Daily Beast that they got wind that the administration had leaked the delegations plans to travel to Afghanistan on commercial charter after their office was approached by reporters citing multiple administration officials asking about those plans. Pelosi's office also explained that the State Department has to pay for the flights, even those done commercially, which is how the administration knew of the plans in the first place.

As The Daily Beast previously reported, Trump's decision to tank Pelosi's trip holds serious diplomatic consequences. The speaker intended to stop in Brussels to reassert the United States' commitment to NATO, which President Trump has criticized vociferously. She also planned to speak with troops in Afghanistan, to assuage concerns about Trump's controversial decision to withdraw troops from Syria and stave off declining morale.

But Trump didn't seem particularly aware of the consequences of canceling the diplomatic envoy. "Why would Nancy Pelosi leave the Country with other Democrats on a seven day excursion when 800,000 great people are not getting paid," he tweeted Friday.

Ugonjwa Wa Tetanus Ni Nini?


umeshashuhudia watu wengi wamekufa na tukaambiwa wamekufa kwa tetanus. Maneno kama tetanus haina tiba au ukiumwa tetanus unaganda shingo ni ya kawaida. Kwamba ukijichoma na kitu chenye ncha kali chenye kutu, uwahi ukachomwe sindano ya tetanus. Lakini, tetanus ni ugonjwa gani hasa?


Mada yetu ya leo itauchambua ugonjwa huu wa tetanus ili uweze kujua chanzo cha tetanus, dalili zake, tiba au kinga ya tetanus. Bila kupoteza muda, tuanze mara moja.
Tetanus Ni Nini?
Tetanus ni ugonjwa mkali, ambao mara nyingi unaua wa mfumo wa neva unaosababishwa na sumu zinazotengenezwa na bakteria aitwaye Clostridium tetani. Bakteria huyu hupatikana kwenye udongo na kwenye utumbo wa binadamu na wanyama (kinyesi). Baketria huyu huweza kuwa kimya kwa miaka mingi kama spore kabla ya kuzinduka na kugeuka bakteria anayezaliana.
Bakteria huyu huzaliana kwenye kidonda. Vidonda vyenye kina au vile vyenye tishu zilizokufa ndiyo maeneo ambayo bakteria huyu anaweza kuingilia kirahisi mwilini.
chanzo cha tetanus
Vidonda vinavyotokana na kujitoboa kama vile vya misumari, vibanzi au vipande vya vioo vyenye ncha kali, vidonda vya upasuaji, vidonda vya kupigwa risasi au vya kuumwa na wadudu ndizo sehemu ambazo bakteria huyu hupata nafasi ya kuingia katika mwili. Bakteria huyu anaweza pia kupitia vidonda vya kuungua na moto na matundu ya sindano. Tetanus inaweza kuwa hatari kwa mama na mtoto mchanga (kupitia uterus baada ya uzazi na kupitia kwenye kitovu).
Sumu kali (tetanospasmin) inayozalishwa wakati bakteria hawa wanazaliana ndicho chanzo cha madhara makubwa ya tetanus.
Sumu za tetanus huharibu mawasiliano baina ya neva na misuli unaoamshwa na neva hiyo, na hasa sehemu vinapokutana (neuromuscular junction). Sumu za tetanus hukuza ishara za kikemikali kutoka kwenye neva kwenda kwenye misuli, hali inayosababisha misuli kukaza moja kwa moja.
Dalili Za Tetanus
Tetanus huchukua muda wa wastani wa kati ya siku 2 hadi miezi miezi 2 kuanza kuonyesha dalili zake, lakini kwa kawaida ni katika siku 14 toka siku ya kupata jeraha. Dalili za kawaida ni:
. Kukaza kwa misuli kwenye taya (trimus)
. Ugumu wa misuli ya shingo
. Shida wakati wa kumeza
. Ugumu wa misuli ya tumbo
. Mikazo ya misuli inayodumu kwa dakika kadhaa, mikazo ambazo inasababishwa na vitu vidogovidogo kama sauti kubwa, kuguswa au mwanga.
Dalili nyingine zinaweza kuwa:
. Homa
. Jasho kali
. Kupanda kwa pressure
. Mapigo ya moyo kwenda mbio
Katika siku saba za mwanzo baada ya maambukizi ya bakteria, kukaza kwa misuli kunakosababishwa na sumu za tetanus kwenye eneo la kidonda kutasambaa hadi sehemu nyingine zote za mwili. Kukosa utulivu na maumivu ya kichwa vitaonekana. Hii itahusisha misuli yote ya mwili ikiwa ni pamoja na misuli muhimu inayohusika na upumuaji. Misuli hii ya upumuaji inapokosa nguvu, kupumua inakuwa ni shida au haiwezekani na kifo kinatokea endapo msaada wa kuokoa maisha utakosekana. Pamoja na vifaa vya kusaidia upumuaji, maambukizi kwenye njia za hewa ndani ya mapafu yanaweza kusababisha kifo.
Kinga Ya Tetanus
Njia bora kabisa ya kupambana na tetanus ni kuizuia. Sumu za tetanus zikishanata kwenye maeneo zinapoishia neva, hakuna njia za kuziondoa. Ili kupona kutokana na sumu ya tetanus inabidi neva mpya ziote, tendo ambalo linalochukua hadi miezi kadhaa.
Unaweza kujikinga na tetanus kirahisi sana kwa kutumia chanjo.
