Nina's Notes: Tuberculosis, the bugs in your gut, stakeholders + surveillance

More notes! And more cute animals. And their cute TB.

Last week we covered sleeping sickness, viral fevers, whole genome sequencing and more.

This week we have tantalizing microbes—tuberculosis and the protozoans in your gut—as well as some abstract concepts—stakeholder analysis and on-farm surveillance. Take your pick, whatever piques your curiosity.

Stakeholder Analysis


On-Farm Disease Surveillance

Enteric Protozoan Pathogens

(translation: single-celled organisms that make you sick when they get in your intestine)


  1. Interesting that TB started in humans and remains a major scourge: “ Global burden = 50 million, 9 million new cases per year, 1.5 million deaths per year.”

    Your pictures are awesome. Especially liked the udders ; )

    1. It is amazing how TB is still such a big cause of illness and death around the world, especially when we do have good drugs to treat it. And TB has the potential to grow instead of shrink as it gains resistance to multiple drugs.

      Thanks, you know how much I love dairy cows. Currently wearing my Buckeye Dairy Club sweatshirt and cuts-of-beef pajama pants. Cozy.

    2. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.
