Economics Scarcity and Opportunity Cost
This is a two minute video that explains what opportunity cost is and what it means. Very good explanation, but the sound is a bit weak. A good video to show students when explaining this economic concept. I use it to also teach decision making in terms of homework and other obligations as well as needs and wants.

Medical Treatment for Niger's Malnourished
Niger's 15.8 million people are served by a sparse collection of medical staff—about one doctor for every 30,000 people. Some doctors and nurses are Nigerien, trained to help their own; some are from surrounding African countries, and some come from the United States to work with the under-served. From small clinics like the World Vision clinic near Dakoro in eastern Niger to larger hospitals like Galmi, the ill effects of malnutrition color healthcare routines and treatments.
