Somedays things look good. Today is one of those days. It didn't start out that way. But, it has evolved in that direction at least since noon. So this Friday the 13th is looking pretty lucky for me. If you want to make it even better you can put some suggestions for where to look for research grants in the comments of the previous post. So far nobody has left any recommendations of places that offer funding for academic research by scholars in Africa. However, given today's trajectory I have hope that somebody might in the next couple of days. Africa has always been the continent of eternal optimism.
