Fix It

Tough recent press for Boston University. Today’s Globe includes these articles:

One positive story–which the Globe fails to discuss clearly–is that the National Institutes of Health issued its risk assessment report on BU’s National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratory, which stands completed but largely unoccupied near the Medical Campus in the South End. The report concludes that “the risks of infections or deaths resulting from accidents or malevolent acts at the NEIDL are generally very low to only remotely possible.” There’s a public hearing on the NIH findings on April 19. I hope this means the NEIDL will finally receive all the permits it needs for its full range of laboratories.

    Howdy! This blog post couldn’t be written much better!
    Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He always kept talking about this. I most
    certainly will forward this post to him. Pretty sure he’ll have a great read.
    I appreciate you for sharing!

    Thanks for any other excellent article. Where else may anyone
    get that type of info in such a perfect approach of writing?
    I have a presentation next week, and I am on the search for such information.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely
    broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang
    of it!

    I have read the articles about the Hockey case too, but what it thought is that it haven’t even  been proved that he really did it, and BU isn’t the only school with sexual assault problem.  In larger states universities, cases like these aren’t uncommon. I think the reason why the media give it this much attention could be it is related to the Hockey team. I am not saying this kind of problem doesn’t deserve attention, but i really feel there are better ways to present the problem.
