Abstract:
Scientists world-wide are continually searching for ways to fight diseases. Some of the most important work in that fight was carried on in the late 20th-century in North Carolina by Gertrude Elion and George Hitching. In 1988, they shared the Nobel Prize in medicine with England's Sir James Black. Their revolutionary discoveries led to drugs to fight leukemia, malaria, gout, organ rejection, rheumatoid arthritis, and certain bacterial infections, and laid the foundation for work leading to AZT, the first treatment for AIDS.

Abstract:
The authors talk about the fishermen and oystermen of Ocracoke and the dilemma they had in 2006 when the last fish house went up for sale. The watermen organized and formed OWWA (Ocracoke Working Watermen’s Association) and then by forming a nonprofit umbrella organization, ‘Ocracoke Foundation,’ they were able to pursue grants and help the community. They bought the last fish house and renovated it into the Ocracoke Seafood Company.
