Not sure if this is the right place to ask a technical question about the network. I added a picture, but it doesn't always show up. Any ideas?

Hi Ben. It sometimes times a few minutes for photos to show up. Especially with all the traffic within the past 24 hours, it might be a little slow. It looks like your picture is showing up now.

Dear Researcher's,
I am a researcher and co-coordinator of a research group on health of the black and maroon in Brazil, which belongs to a public university, and I'm very interested to be visiting your university, and meet other researchers and teachers who have studies on black people or african-Americans.
I had the opportunity to do internship at Elon University in North Carolina for a month in 2008, where he had contact with the health anthropology, and in 2011 we are trying to verify the possibility of visiting universities and researchers Americans who study the issue of inequities and inequalities ethnic / racial and the problem of access to the health of the black population, which is one of the great problems we have in Brazil too.
The idea is to try to schedule a visit in May or June 2011, and we have availability we get up to a week, or maybe a little more, and so we could be exchanging experience and can show what we have studied in Brazil with communities black in rural areas.
We have much interest yet to receive them or their students themselves through scientific exchange, and we are still making agreements, joint research projects, articles and everything that is academically viable, if it is in their interest.
If you do not have interest in this subject, but I can indicate to other researchers who study public health, culture, public policies, or even black population health, please let me know please or pass to someone else.
