- Gut Check Rule of Fives / Elite FTS
Be prudent, and AVOID VOMITING. That is no marker of intensity; it is only a marker of being unable to dispose of blood lactate in the liver at a fast-enough rate. Spare yourself the trauma, and take extra time between sets or reps until the liver enzymes accommodate.

Also, no, we didn’t call the police. There really isn’t anything that law enforcement could do for us that we can’t do for ourselves and if someone is desperate enough to risk their freedom for $150, maybe we’ve all failed them. It’s tough feeling vulnerable, and seeing our storefront broken open brought up a lot of emotions, including anger—but incarceration isn’t justice and punishment can only multiply harm.

- About the Author – Professor Erin Bromage
This past semester, I taught a class on Ecology of Infectious Disease to undergraduate students. I always like to have a current disease example as a common thread throughout the course. So in January, when I was putting the syllabus for my course together, I saw a pathogen emerging in China and decided to incorporate it. Since early January my students and I have been developing and updating a huge notice board of information outside my laboratory on the new research findings to track the pathogen’s progression.
As I saw the pathogen going global, I started writing pieces on Facebook for friends because I suspected that the outbreak was going to become significant, would negatively affect our daily lives, and I wanted them to be prepared. Those friends asked if I could put my writing on a web page so that their non-Facebook friends and relatives could access it.
