    • Bitter Sugar: A Mystery Disease

      Gabriel Garcia Marquez Journalism Prize 2013. Associated Press photographer Esteban Felix Tells the story behind the photos. Photos: Esteban Félix Storytelling, production and editing: Alba Mora Music: Dan Balilty The workers who cut sugar-cane and other crops in the sweltering coastal lowlands of Central America are being hit by a mysterious epidemic that is killing thousands of people a year. From Panama to southern Mexico, laborers are coming down with kidney failure at rates unseen virtually anywhere else in the world. Families and villages are being devastated by the loss of nearly entire generations of men. Since 2000, chronic kidney disease has killed more than 24,000 people in El Salvador and Nicaragua, the two countries that are by far the worst-hit by the disease. Rigorous scientific investigation has only just begun in the communities hit by the epidemic, and relatively few facts have been established, but scientists are coming up with what they believe to be a credible hypothesis. They say the roots of the epidemic appear to lie in the grueling nature of the work performed by its victims. They labor hour after hour without enough water in blazing temperatures, pushing their bodies through repeated bouts of extreme dehydration and heat stress for years on end. Many start as young as 10. The punishing routine appears to be a key part of some previously unknown trigger of chronic kidney disease, which is normally caused by diabetes and high-blood pressure. Associated Press Photographer Esteban Felix spent weeks in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua, one of the worst-affected communities, documenting the human toll of this epidemic. There, one of four men has symptoms of chronic kidney disease, which floods the body with toxins, casuing weakness, cramps, headaches, vomiting, shortness of breath, and, in the most serious cases, death.

            from blprnt Added 141K 427 24

            I was discussing H1N1 with a bioinformatics friend of mine last weekend, and we ended up talking about ways that epidemiologists model transmission of disease. I wondered how some of the information that is shared voluntarily on social networks might be used to build useful models of various kinds. I'm also interested in visualizing information that isn't implicitly shared - but instead is inferred or suggested. This piece looks for tweets containing the phrases 'just landed in...' or 'just arrived in...'. Locations from these tweets are located using MetaCarta's Location Finder API. The home location for the traveling users are scraped from their Twitter pages. The system then plots these voyages over time. I'm not entirely sure where this will end up going, but I am reasonably happy with the results so far.
