(QDEOLQJHYHU\\ERG\\ QRWMXVWVFLHQWLVWV WRHSORUHWKHPLFURFRVPRV is something that keeps me up at night. A FINAL STORY FROM THE TRENCHES I was in a remote part of Uganda, with one of my students, Jim Cybulski; and we were trying to convince a 60-year-old Ugandan microscopist ZKRKDGWUDLQHGKXQGUHGVRIPLFURVFRSLVWVLQKLVFRXQWU\\ DERXW the power of the Foldscope. After my initial conversation at his local heath clinic, he stopped me and said you are telling me I can do microscopy under a tree and he chuckled. I laughed, held his hand, and asked him to come out with me under a tree and continued to demonstrate the microscopes. That was an incredible moment for PHEHFDXVHZHKDGMXVWVKDWWHUHGKLVEHOLHIRIZKDWPLFURVFRS\\DQG science is. Getting his approval and encouragement meant a lot to PHWKDWQLJKWVLQFHLWLVSHRSOHOLNHKLPZKR?JKWWHUULEOHGLVHDVHV and are in the trenches where the real problems are. To enhance his capabilities is really the dream we should all aim to achieve.</p> <UL><LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/707/arcswnjom/1/1/">Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a
