This is goshdarned strange!

I recently wrote a blogpost about malaria and the death of two entertainers from South Korea who contracted malaria in South Africa.  I have Google reader set to look for posts about Gangwondo, as I used to live and blog from there, and found another blog had picked up my content.

Verbatim.  pasted twice into one post.

Well, not verbatim.  The title now had two words added: weight loss. They had randomly added the word ‘health’ with links to other posts they had written.  The blog claims to be about ‘health care’ and my post discussed the subject but there was no added commentary nor links back to me or this site.  They also killed the various links I had placed in the post – referring to the newspaper article and other blogposts on the subject.

A few quotes (oh, I should link back to them; that’s the polite thing to do, after all):

Heck, it’s my blogpost: I have quoted a long section and added one thing.  Bolding to their added links.  The paragraph does start as “wonder..” Did I skip the “I” or did they somehow remove it?

wonder so very glamorous life in the mid-level Korean entertainers are the problem. Extra! Korea posted recently about a newspaper article about an entertainer incomes and living arrangements. I also did it years ago at Gangwon Notes *.< p style = “text-align: left;”> ——< p style = “text-align: left;” > * Yes, I linked to me twice in this post. I do not know how many people read this and what percentage of them also read Gangwon Notes, but I have discussed malaria on my blogs for four or five years, and SurprisesAplenty. does not show that the background. Also, I’m a great writer and you should feel lucky to have a chance to read further in my work.

There are two reports in the news about Korean dancers in South Africa staining of malaria.

Spelling proposed the “stain” after me wrong

wrote “die” – certainly their words mean to add

color for clothes and such though. What is the right word?

first, my condolences to the families of Koh Eun-joo and Kim Su-Yeon.

Secondly, how can it happen? The Korea Herald article (KH is no longer appears on my browser as a malware site) about Miss Kim is short and simply reports her health care name and occupation. The JoongAng article on Miss Koh throws more light. I dislike using such lengthy excerpts from a newspaper article, but malaria is a serious matter.

Kim Su-Yeon, 27, was one of two artists in the 45-member troupe to contract the disease, and one of eleven members who had received chloroquine, a malaria pill that is “not very effective in Africa,” said an official of the Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention, who asked to be identified only as Im.

“The pills were prescribed by a village doctor before they left. The health other 34 received medication prior to their departure from National Medical Center,” Im said. “It would have been better had they been better informed before this happened because this information is not hard to get. It’s on our Web site .”

Im said 11 artists given chloroquine were all from Namwon the National Center for Korean People’s Performing Arts is located. He said mefloquine is usually prescribed as a protection against malaria.

Kim began to show signs of malaria, 3 June, but thought it was simply a cold. The day after she returned to Korea health from Egypt, 5 June, a hospital diagnosed her as suffering from the mosquito-borne parasitic diseases, illness, said Park Min-Kwon from the Korean Culture and Information Services, who directed the Korean Cultural Festival.

“Another member was also diagnosed with symptoms worse than Kim, but she is doing better now,” Park said. “All 45 people got malaria pills before we left .”< p style =” text-align: left; “> Okay, more news on Malaria in Korea and elsewhere: Gangwon Notes *, CDC and Wikipedia’s page of chloroquine.

Now prevention is better than cure, as there are few good health care cures for malaria. Part of prevention is through drugs, but I wonder if the dancers were also preventing mosquito bites. Net or fans are important at night (to avoid malaria is more important than fear fandeath, after all) but these are for affordable housing. Prestigious hotels should have been properly sealed room with AC where necessary – there should have been no need to open a window at night.

So, what should I do? What is this about?  Ideas?
