30-starred science and topical reading!

Always re-amazed by this brilliant author, Ms. Sonia Shah, who appears to vacuum up all existing information, data, facts, et cetera, on a subject then organizes into the most cogent and lucid form conceivable to convey to muddling people like myself, who are eternally grateful for all her work and intelligence. Fantastic read!
Interesting to learn that the major donor to WHO is the Gates Foundation, and anyone who disagrees with them at WHO finds themselves looking for another job! No input allowed there!
[And would STRONGLY recommend it to Bill Gates and the Gates Foundation before they finance any further releases of genetically modified mosquitoes - - which were COINCIDENTALLY released 1 to 2 years prior to Zika explosions at the same locations by their Oxitec firm they used to finance! Wonder why the United Nations' WHO never mentions this? Oh yeah, their single largest private donor: the Gates Foundation.]
