Pensamentos.me/VEM comigo!

Mar, metade da minha alma é feita de maresia

Pois é pela mesma inquietação e nostalgia,

Que há no vasto clamor da maré cheia,

Que nunca nenhum bem me satisfez.

E é porque as tuas ondas desfeitas pela areia

Mais fortes se levantam outra vez,

Que após cada queda caminho para a vida,

Por uma nova ilusão entontecida.

E se vou dizendo aos astros o meu mal

É porque também tu revoltado e teatral

Fazes soar a tua dor pelas alturas.

E se antes de tudo o odeio e fujo

O que é impuro, profano e sujo,

É só porque as tuas ondas são puras.

Uganda green-lights Ebola vaccine trials | CIDRAP

Uganda’s health minister announced yesterday that officials will evaluate three Sudan Ebola vaccine candidates in the coming weeks, and she revealed that healthcare workers are already testing some new treatment options.

Currently, there are no approved treatments for the more rare Sudan Ebola strain that Uganda is battling in seven of its west central regions, including the capital city Kampala. Plans to test vaccines and treatments appear to be similar to strategies used to test countermeasures against Zaire Ebola in in West Africa and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
