Readers sometimes come to me for help. I’m not always able to aid them, either because I’m too busy or I don’t know the answers to their questions. So, in a roundup of a couple of readers’ requests, I thought I’d try and help out.

One chap, named Quinn, is looking for resources about “Thailand’s conflict with the US and Swiss pharma companies over drug patents” for a story he is writing. My knowledge of this subject is limited. So, if any reader has knowledge of this topic or knows of someone who does, you can email Quinn at quinn at ambiguous dot org

A guy named Bruce is currently researching his Ph.D in development administration at NIDA. Part of this includes gathering opinions on press freedom. Bruce has a questionnaire online, open to journalists and non-journalists. Follow this link to the questionnaire. It should take no more than 15 minutes to fill out.

Anyone else who needs help with anything, maybe someone I forgot to mention, drop a comment here. A lot of emails sent through my contact form end up going to my spam folder, so I do miss a few.

  1. Drug patents, the gift that keeps on giving*

    *to those who are already rich, have good healthcare and live in a world outside of suffering and pain

  2. Matt,

    This isn't really help that I'm asking for, but it's something I'd like to see done which I don't have the ability to look into myself… you might.

    You may remember about six months ago (maybe longer) two Canadians were shot in Pai, one of them killed, by a police officer. At the time, the media followed the story pretty closely, but as it took more than a few weeks to come to any kind of conclusion, the coverage just sort of trailed off. As I last heard (and the last thing I could find on the web), the officer was charged with premeditated murder, but released on bail and still on duty. I'm really curious what ended up happening to him. Since you are a journalist, I thought it might be the kind of thing you could/would want to look into.

    -Jase

    PS – the names of the Canadians are John Leo Del Pinto and Carly Reisig
