Breaking news! 3 chapters now open! These are very short, so please try to get them in quickly if you claim, so we can finish off this project!

If you don't mind, I can take all three and have them ready in a few days.

Larry -
At ~2:52 I hear 'Strong, healthy bodies are poor seed and ground...'
The text reads 'Strong, healthy bodies are poor seed ground...'
That makes the sentence confusing.

Wikipedia says TB is still a problem in much of the world except Canada, Western Europe and the US. I didn't know that.

Thank you for the good PL!
You would think that clipping out a little word would be a simple thing. It is, but it throws the whole intonation off. So, recording the sentence is the only sensible thing to do.

Yes, TB is still a major global health problem. Our early Peace Corps teams in Korea battled it. Our group focused on agriculture, but we served concurrently with them. Spitting is still a bad habit there. And, I had a trained TB health technician as part of my medical team that I led in Haiti for four years.. Both of these were quite a few years ago, and things have improved in Korea with better hygiene but not in Haiti. We do have good diagnosis and treatment (antibiotics, not just "fresh air") but poverty and politics means the people who need it don't get it. Tuberculosis of the bones was serious, esp in children, and we had a whole hospital in Port-au-Prince for them.

Anyway, the corrected file is uploaded, and you can clear two projects from your DPL list today. :wink:

Well, I happened to be strolling by and saw this. So I did this quick spot PL myself, it is indeed PL ok, and I'll get started on sending it over to archive. :D
