I'm in MWD (Measurement While Drilling), this is the tool we use to give hole direction to the drilling operation.



This is where we do it.

Love the Pyxis. Truly a time saver.
Will the medics in Burma have much access to pharmaceuticals?

Hmm how to break it down into one picture. How about this?



The first fuel assembly going back into the reactor core. Sorry for the poor picture, I had to grab it off of a video monitor. You can tell it is a previously used assembly since it is glowing a bit, they glow a lot more during off load right after shutdown.

It's a MG3 or still a MG 42?. Had this in use during my Army time, easy to "work" with but the fire rate is very high, expecially when you replace the fire rate reducer inside the breech, (has an additional spring to slow down the rate) against a solid piece. (This was only recommended against special targets back then).

They have a formulary of very basic essential generic drugs to cover infections,prenatal vitamins, iron, Phenobarb for seizure disorders, antimalarials, antihelminthics etc. These medications are purchased with monies donated by NGOs and then are packaged up in amounts "sufficient" depending on the number of people in the displaced persons camp (one had 5,000 inhabitants) to last 3 to 6 months. All of this was transferred by long tail boat and then carried through the jungle for up to 2 weeks. A portion of the medication stocks are divided out and then buried in the jungle so if the camp or village is over run by the Burma Army they don't lose everything. I brought counting trays and graduated cylinders for measuring, taught basic skills in managing medications and using them most effectively.

Floating clinic along border on Burma side



Beginning of hike into one of the camps



Corridor of the hospital in the largest camp - here they treat everything from kids with meningitis, diabetes (sorry, no insulin), land mine injuries....



Outpatient Clinic "pharmacy"


View of a clinic in progress - a lot of pent up demand as no health care provider had been in the this camp for at least a month



These medics, ethnic Karen, most of them between 18 to 30 are my heroes - they work hard and tirelessly on behalf of their people to alleviate suffering with what they have available - which isn't a lot. The Karen are just one of several ethnic groups that have been oppressed by the government since 1948 that have been involved with ongoing conflicts in the region for decades, although the Burmans aren't much better off under the current regimen. I am hopeful to see signs of change in Burma but have reservations that it will be window dressing to lure in the multinationals who are chomping at the bit to get access to the natural resources that once made Burma one of the richest countries in SE Asia. Keeping my fingers crossed that these camps can close and the people can go back to their villages and homes.
