The Olympic Games of Beijing 2008 held from 8th to 24th August 2008 in China were a wonderful event people were given to see: colourful opening and closing ceremonies, a welcoming olympic village, modern and technological infrastructures, simple formalities, 37 world records beaten ... In brief, perfectly organised games! No wonder that China comes at the first rank in terms of medals won.

Through those 29th Olympic Games, China showed the whole world that work, rigour and discipline are the ploughshare of a true development. It is an example to be followed. That's why China deserves the respect of anyone.

Thanks to Chinese for those wonderfully organised games. Smile

12 Angry Men is an interesting American drama film. It is about a jury member who must try to persuade the other 11 members to acquit the suspect (a young Spanish-American) on trial on the basis of reasonable doubt. I advise you to watch it so as to make your own comment.

Malaria is one of the major health issues West African population, especially the rural one, is confronted with since decades. In fact, numerous are those among this population who fall in with this fatal disease each year. What is malaria? What are its symptoms? What impacts does it have on this rural population? How can they avoid it? These are a set of questions we are going to tackle in this short article dedicated to malaria and West African rural population. Malaria is a tropical disease caused by a parasite called Plasmodium. This one is transmitted by the bite of Anopheles, the female species of mosquito. The first symptoms of malaria are: headache, aching muscles, tummy ache, weakness or lethargy. A day or so later, one may have: fever, shivers, mild chills, severe headache, loss of appetite and vomiting. The impacts of malaria in this rural population are very disastrous. As a matter of fact, people who are suffering from malaria cannot go and work in their farms. Which can often brings about bad crops. As they are generally poor, they cannot afford a good treatment because this one seems very expensive for them. Hence the high death-rate among this population. To avoid malaria, we think that preventative measures are by far better than curative ones. So this rural population must : 1. Destroy any mosquitoes'nest around their houses. 2. Sleep in insecticide-treated bed nets. 3. Take intermittent preventative treatments, especially for pregnant women.
