      LIVE DISCUSSION: TRYING TIMES FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGES

      With the economy stifling growth at four-year public colleges,
      enrollments at two-year institutions are up, and state financial
      support is down. And every year more students show up who barely
      know how to read. Can community colleges continue to provide
      access for all? Join a live, online discussion of this topic on
      Thursday at 2 p.m., U.S. Eastern time. Advance questions are
      encouraged and may be posted now.

      A glance at the spring issue of "Proteus":
      How HIV/AIDS is wiping out Africa

      The HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa compounds and is compounded by the
      economic, social, and political problems of the continent, says
      Kwaku Danso, an associate professor of international affairs and
      development at Clark Atlanta University.

      "HIV/AIDS, like all infectious diseases, is transmitted in an
      environment that is heavily influenced by societal factors --
      economics, politics, sanitation, environmental degradation,
      malnutrition, and access to health care," he writes. "This is
      consistent with Louis Pasteur's observation that 'the microbe is
      nothing, the terrain is everything.'"

      Health systems that were already inadequate to serve Africa's
      largely rural population are under unsustainable strain as they
      try to care for the millions of Africans with HIV/AIDS, Mr.
      Danso says. "In some countries," he writes, "health-care staff
      are dying faster than they can be trained."

      HIV-related illnesses have spawned teacher shortages and labor
      shortages. The unequal societal and cultural burden placed on
      women in Africa has caused the continent to be the only place in
      the world where more women than men are infected with HIV/AIDS,
      Mr. Danso says. And the political stability of many African
      nations is threatened as governments struggle to allocate their
      dwindling resources.

      In short, he says, HIV/AIDS "has affected every aspect of
      African society and may indeed succeed in wiping the continent
      from the map."

      The article, "The Political Economy of HIV/AIDS in Africa," is
      not online. Information about the journal is available at
