In Africa, the spread of parasitic worms known as Loa loa is seriously hindering the efforts of health care workers to cure particular rampant diseases. Though there are drugs available to treat both river blindness and lymphatic filariasis, if they are administered to a patient who also happens to also be infected with Loa loa the consequences can be lethal. This is complicated further by the inherent difficulties in screening for the worms, but a newly developed mobile phone microscope needing only a drop of blood to automatically detect the parasite promises to make things a whole lot simpler.
Early success in the NFL translates to longer careers. Because there’s such a “win now” mentality in the league, one that disregards the progression of players during practice, instead focusing on scheme, a player almost has to be NFL-ready coming out of college to stick around for more than three or four years.
After a long weekend of excitement, it’s hard to be the one who spoils the fun, but not all of the players your team selected are going to be All-Pros. In fact, the majority of them will have average careers, looking for ventures outside of the sport around 2020.
Some players fell perfectly in the draft, though. There are at least eight prospects who look to be immediate impact players, generating talk around the league and for pundits on television. If you follow the sport on a week-to-week basis, it’s going to be nearly impossible to avoid those eight names during the fall.
We’ll break down who those players are, how they fit with their new roster and what to expect from their first year in the NFL. If you’re lucky, maybe your team landed one of these athletes over the past weekend.
