Today's Globe: drug-resistant TB, peak warming, Harvard dean, FDA watchdog
Tuberculosis specialists said yesterday that the real importance of the Andrew Speaker case is that it is a warning to all Americans: The United States should brace itself for many more cases of the drug-resistant airborne germ in the months and years ahead.
If members of the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming invited by US Representative Edward J. Markey (left), could have peered through the storm clouds atop Cannon Mountain yesterday, they would have seen for themselves why the region's residents are so anxious about global warming. On a clear day, as far as the eye can see from the mountain, every business in this New Hampshire region depends on the climate, from its ski lifts to its hotels, from farms to snowmobile trails.
Incoming Harvard president Drew G. Faust has tapped a well-liked computer scientist to be dean of Harvard's largest school, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Michael D. Smith, 45, will oversee Harvard College and the PhD programs.
Leveraging his power as a federal adviser, tapping the reach of medical publications, and whispering in the ears of key members of Congress, Cleveland Clinic cardiologist Dr. Steven E. Nissen (left) has chipped away at the credibility of the Food and Drug Administration as the nation's top drug safety watchdog.
