New contraceptive for women in poorer countries
A new way of giving contraceptive injections - in a special device without a traditional syringe - could help more women in developing countries plan their lives and their families. The device has previously been used for giving hepatitis B jabs in Indonesia, but this is the first time it has been made available for contraception.

Underserved women in Northeastern Kenya get family planning education
Muslim women in north eastern Kenya are being encouraged to use modern birth control methods like contraceptive implants or the pill. Such forms of contraception are little known in the poor, conservative part of the country where women have an average of 8 children, some with complications. In the Wajir region, only 2% of the population uses contraceptives, compared to a national average of 58%. More than four out of ten women are married before the age of 18.

Why is Bangladesh still poor 46 years after separation from Pakistan?
Please Like, Share and Subscribe our channel. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bangladesh In the year 1971, the form of an independent nation emerged. But to be free, Pakistan had to fight for freedom. India and Pakistan separated in 1947, when Bangladesh was known as East Pakistan but Bangladesh is at a distance of 1600 kilometers from Pakistan. Freedom was fought in 1971 due to political boycotts, ethnic and linguistic discrimination, popular movement and economic neglect by civil war. In which Bangladesh became a separate country. So 45 years after Independence, why still Bangladesh is a poor country? So, because of its flaw. The biggest reason for Bangladesh's poor living is its growing population. As you know, more populations can not support clean ground and environment. And due to the population, area size and resource constraints are created and heavy populated land is formed. Compared to the population, Bangladesh is a very small country. Because the largest country in the world is Russia, whose population is 14 million and in front of Bangladesh's area is very small and its population is more than 16 million, that is, more than Russia, so that can not get a uniform resource for everyone, and The risk to increase poverty becomes high. Even if Bangladesh is said to be the King of rivers, it is not less as there are more than 700 rivers in Bangladesh. Due to which the danger of flood also increases significantly. According to sources, a large part of Bangladesh is in big danger of flood. Many rural populations live in areas which suffer from annual flood, causing huge loss to their crops, homes and livelihoods. For the rebuilding of their homes, they often have to resort to reach people, and this leads them to become poor every year. The land worth cultivating in rural areas is continuously decreasing. Most of the people here are dependent on agriculture for livelihood. If a natural crop is inaccessible then the whole agricultural sector is in danger. By which poverty increases and it takes a lot of time to recover them. Apart from this, due to rising urbanization, farming is also decreasing. The reason for this is that fishing is one of the main sources of fishing that has been dawn today, because the river is shrinking and the system of bad water disposal is also bad. Another major challenge is corruption and political instability. For exemplars, the entire Bangladesh faced a protracted strike in 2015. Therefore, this caused a huge impact on the economy of the country. The poorest and lower middle class people had to suffer the most damage. Corruption and injustice also weaken the growth of the economy. This small country can not afford such political instability or corruption. There is also a lack of literacy in Bangladesh due to one of the major reasons for poverty. Which is 61.5%. If the rate of literacy can be corrected then the rate of poverty can also be reduced. If the literacy rate will increase then together with family planning, there may be a lack of problems like awareness, mortality, protein intake, chronic diseases. So this is the main reason for Bangladesh because Bangladesh is still not a developed country. And according to the United Nations, Bangladesh is one of the least developed 16 countries, but by 2025, there is a complete possibility of getting out of this group. That is, in the coming times, they can be a developed country. But it is in the hands of the government of that country. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Music by : Fanfare for Space by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/...)

Rich And Poor Women Have Similar Sex Lives, Different Access To Birth Control
Poor Women Are More Likely To Have Unplanned Pregnancies. What Gives? Income Inequality Also Affects Unplanned Pregnancies (New Study) “ Poor women are five times as likely as affluent women to have an unintended birth, new research from the Brookings Institution shows — and that drives inequality. The difference boils down to contraceptive use, not sexual activity. There is no “sex gap” by income, researchers emphasized. Promiscuity doesn’t vary along class lines. Access to the most reliable forms of birth control, however, does.” * Cenk Uygur (http://www.twitter.com/cenkuygur), Hannah Cranston (https://twitter.com/hannahcranston_) and Ana Kasparian (http://www.twitter.com/AnaKasparian) discuss.

Overpopulation facts - the problem no one will discuss: Alexandra Paul at TEDxTopanga
Actress Alexandra Paul breaks the silence on one of the most taboo subjects of our time: human overpopulation and how to resolve the crisis that is adding 220,000 more people to the planet every day. In this fact filled talk, Alexandra discusses the overpopulation problems of 7 billion humans multiplying at a rate of 1 billion more people every 12 years and offers a simple solution: Transform negative cultural attitudes about the Only Child, and celebrate the short and long term benefits of small families. Alexandra reminds us that coercion in any form is not the answer to changing cultural and biological norms. Instead, rewiring our biology through strong cultural messaging, education of girls and empowerment of women are the solutions to stopping the current momentum towards 10 billion people on the planet in 40 years. Alexandra emphasizes that because each American born uses so many more resources than someone from a developing country, it is equally important that wealthy countries have small families. She discusses the economic tradeoffs of a smaller population in a world where capitalism reigns: because the capitalist system depends upon more and more consumers, there are strong forces at work to keep the numbers of people on earth growing. But at what expense? And since human numbers cannot keep getting larger forever, at what point will we change our ways? When it is too late? Most controversially, Alexandra believes that, if humans are to survive on this planet, the ideal family has one child and the ideal number of people on earth is 2 billion. "If that is too radical, then it is time for radicalism. Too much is at stake to be polite." This talk is full of overpopulation facts. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Our World Is Actually Doing Better Than Ever, According to these 5 clear charts
Read the full story in this link: http://www.sciencealert.com/these-7-charts-show-the-world-is-better-than-ever-even-if-things-seem-apocalyptic These 5 Charts Clearly Show Our World Is Actually Doing Better Than Ever Life is getting better for millions of people. CHRIS WELLER, BUSINESS INSIDER 19 SEP 2017 It's easy to think the world is ending when natural disasters are pummelling vulnerable islands and politicians are threatening nuclear destruction. But take a step back and you'll find a more encouraging picture of where the human race is headed - at least from a public health and quality of life perspective. Across the board, in matters of mortality, hunger, disease, and more, life is getting better for billions of people. Here is a sampling of that global progress. Extreme poverty is slowly going extinct. Charts1 Gates Letter Extreme poverty is defined as living on less than US$1.90 a day. For about 150 years (between 1820 and 1970) the number of people dealing with it continued to rise. By the end of the 1970s, more than 2 billion people were classified as extremely poor. People still seem to think the world is getting poorer, but the data show the number of people in extreme poverty has shrunk to 705 million from that 2-billion high, Melinda Gates explained in a recent Gates Letter. "The larger historical trends are toward greater inclusion and caring," she said. "We definitely see it in global health. Governments are prioritising it. Citizens are supporting it. And scientists are migrating to it." The polio vaccine has nearly wiped out the disease worldwide. Charts2 Gates Letter New polio cases haven't gone down much in the last 17 years - mostly because they're already so close to zero. In the 64 years since Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine, many countries have made concerted efforts to get people vaccinated. China saw its last cases in the mid-1990s and India about 20 years later. In 2016, there were fewer than 40 new cases logged worldwide. Currently, just four countries have yet to eradicate polio. Contraceptive use is higher than it's ever been. Charts3 Gates Letter One of the most effective methods for ensuring economic and social success in a nation is female empowerment. In its 2015 Gates Letter, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation noted that investments in women's health result in stronger workforces and economies in general. Contraceptives help break the cycle of high fertility and child mortality, letting women focus more on themselves and their families. Roughly 300 million women in the 69 poorest countries used some form of birth control in 2016 - a jump of 30 million from 2012. HIV deaths are falling precipitously. Charts4 Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation The world has made enormous leaps in the fight against HIV/AIDS, to the extent that with the right treatment, someone HIV-positive can expect to live as long as their healthy neighbor. As of 2015, there were 36.7 million people worldwide living with the virus, roughly 1.8 million of whom were children under 15 years old. Today, the death rate from HIV is about 0.14 people per 1,000 in the population, down from a high of 0.30 in the early 2000s. Fewer kids are dying before their 5th birthday. Charts5 Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Since 1990, the number of kids dying before their 5th birthday has been cut in half, from 12.1 million down to 5.8 million, in 2015. This is largely due to advances and investments in simple, inexpensive measures in developing countries, including bed nets to prevent malaria and drilling wells for access to clean water. The World Health Organisation finds preterm birth complications and malnutrition play deciding roles in how children fare in their first years of life. Sanitation is steadily getting better. Charts6 Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Greater numbers of sewer connections and water treatment plants are helping to clean up the world. Over the last 25 years, the percentage of people relying on unsafe sanitation has fallen from 57 percent to 33 percent. The Gates Foundation has contributed to the trend, in part by funding research to build waterless toilets and investing in purifying waste water to make it drinkable. Billions of people are gaining access to fresh produce.

Portuguese/Nat Medical experts in Brazil have condemned the growing use of sterilization as a form of contraception for women. Almost 30 percent of Brazilian women - some as young as fifteen - have already been sterilized. Female sterilization has increased dramatically - particularly among women in the poorer regions. Although sterilization is illegal, doctors are carrying out the operations on women who've just given birth in hospital. Regardless of the many birth control methods available, Brazilian women still use only two: the contraceptive pill and sterilization. With average earnings of around 100 dollars a month, most working-class women cannot afford the medical advice that the use of contraceptives demands. Other methods, such as the IUD (intra-uterine device), diaphragm or the "rhythm method" are considered too complicated or are not widely known. As a result, the number of sterilizations has grown at an alarming rate. SOUNDBITE: (Portuguese) (Translation): "Around 27 percent of fertile women have already been sterilized, practically making Brazil the champion in sterilizations." SUPER CAPTION: Ana Maria Rattes, President of the Women's Rights Council Studies show the highest incidence of sterilizations is among the less educated women in Brazil's poorer regions who are thought to be easily persuaded to undergo the operation. SOUNDBITE: (Portuguese) (Translation) It is brutal the number of women who undergo sterilization before an election and the number of politicians without scruples who offer free sterilizations in exchange for votes, especially in the poorest regions of the country, where education is almost nonexistent." SUPER CAPTION: Ana Maria Rattes, President of the Women's Rights Council In many cases, it's thought women aren't told sterilization is irreversible. Although sterilization is illegal, it's not difficult to find a doctor who will perform the operation. Medical experts believe doctors are using a loophole in the law to perform sterilizations on women who give birth by Caesarian section. Over 70 percent of sterilizations are thought to have been carried out this way. The Brazilian government is now taking steps to try to stamp out the practice by offering doctors a financial incentive to carry out normal deliveries instead of Caesarian sections.

Karl Marx remains deeply important today not as the man who told us what to replace capitalism with, but as someone who brilliantly pointed out certain of its problems. The School of Life, a pro-Capitalist institution, takes a look.

It threatens our planet through excessive consumption, distracts us with irrelevant advertising, leaves people hungry and without healthcare, and fuels unnecessary wars. Yet we’re also often keen to dismiss the ideas of its most famous and ambitious critic, Karl Marx. This isn’t very surprising. In practice, his political and economic ideas have been used to design disastrously planned economies and nasty dictatorships. Frankly, the remedies Marx proposed for the ills of the world now sound a bit demented. He thought we should abolish private property. People should not be allowed to own things. At certain moments one can sympathise. But it’s like wanting to ban gossip or forbid watching television. It’s going to war with human behaviour. And Marx believed the world would be put to rights by a dictatorship of the proletariat; which does not mean anything much today.

The 50th Anniversary of the birth control pill
University of Minnesota professor and author Elaine Tyler May explains how the birth control pill has improved a woman's ability to plan a career and when to be a parent. Fifty years ago this month, the United States Food and Drug Administration approved the oral contraceptive for women (commonly known as the pill), which quickly became the most popular form of birth control in the country and one of the best-selling drugs in U.S. history. May also chronicles the long and sometimes controversial history of the pill in her new book, America and the Pill: A History of Promise, Peril, and Liberation.

Women Working: What’s the Pill Got to Do With It?
At the turn of the century, it was rare for a woman to get a college degree or join, and stay in, the workforce. One trailblazer was Katherine McCormick. She was the second woman ever to graduate from MIT, a suffragist, advocate for women’s education, and later philanthropist. McCormick was also a staunch supporter of birth control, going so far as to smuggle contraceptives into the United States at a time when they were illegal or highly regulated. In the 1950s, the birth control pill was extremely controversial. Funding for its development had been pulled. McCormick stepped in and, over time, contributed nearly $23 million (in today’s dollars) of her own money to research efforts. Her financial involvement was instrumental in achieving FDA approval and widespread acceptance of “the pill.” But what does the the pill have to do with female education or women working? For the very first time, women were in control over if and when they would have children. Since the mid-1960s, shortly after the pill was approved as a contraceptive in the United States, female education and labor force participation rates have skyrocketed. With the ability to control when they will have children, women are able to better plan for their academic and professional future. We may take it for granted today, but half a century ago, the pill changed the game for working women.

Your feet can say a lot about you and your true character than you think. Bright Side invites you to take a look at these illustrations proving that. We all have different feet and toes, but we hardly think what it might mean and how it connects to our personalities. However, it does! You might be very surprised to learn that your feet can say far more about you than you think. Take a closer look at the shape of your feet to learn something surprising about yourself. TIMESTAMPS The Egyptian foot 0:34 The Roman foot 0:52 The peasant foot 1:14 The Greek foot 1:32 A little toe that doesn’t move 1:53 A little toe that you can move 2:14 A very short little toe 2:35 The third toe is turned outward 2:52 A gap between the second and third toe 3:08 SUMMARY - The Egyptian foot looks like this: all the toes, from big to little, form a straight line, and each toe is smaller than the previous. - The Roman foot is the most widespread type. People with such feet are generally sociable and friendly. - When all toes are equally long, the foot looks angular. This is called the peasant's foot. People with such feet are calm, reasonable, and practical. - The Greek foot is also one of the most widespread foot types. In this case, the second toe is longer than the others. People with this foot type are usually artistic, emotional, and inclined to leadership. - If you can push away the little toe only using your hand — not the toe muscles — this is your type. People with this foot type have a calm, measured, and predictable life. - Those whose little toes are living their own lives are the exact opposite of the previous type.

The Islamic State (Full Length)
WATCH NOW: Embedded with Al-Qaeda in Syria - http://bit.ly/2ynOxnn The Islamic State, a hardline Sunni jihadist group that formerly had ties to al Qaeda, has conquered large swathes of Iraq and Syria. Previously known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the group has announced its intention to reestablish the caliphate and has declared its leader, the shadowy Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as the caliph. The lightning advances the Islamic State made across Syria and Iraq in June shocked the world. But it's not just the group's military victories that have garnered attention — it's also the pace with which its members have begun to carve out a viable state. Flush with cash and US weapons seized during its advances in Iraq, the Islamic State's expansion shows no sign of slowing down. In the first week of August alone, Islamic State fighters have taken over new areas in northern Iraq, encroaching on Kurdish territory and sending Christians and other minorities fleeing as reports of massacres emerged. VICE News reporter Medyan Dairieh spent three weeks embedded with the Islamic State, gaining unprecedented access to the group in Iraq and Syria as the first and only journalist to document its inner workings.

12 Signs of High Intelligence You Probably Have
Some of your characteristics may signify a higher than average intellect. Are you a night owl? Or a procrastinator? Then you are way smarter than you think! We all have little things about ourselves that may seem useless or even annoying to other people at times. But hold off before you start beating yourself up or trying to change these little behaviors. You're probably a genius! TIMESTAMPS You’re a lefty. 0:52 You often freak out over the littlest things. 1:58 You have a good sense of humor. 2:47 You're a little on the nosy side. 3:41 You're a night owl. 4:34 You're extremely sensitive or easily distracted. 6:03 You walk a lot. 6:50 You realize how much knowledge you still lack. 7:28 You're a master of self-control. 8:09 You often procrastinate. 9:06 You're constantly munching on something. 10:00 You fall asleep from time to time during the day. 10:42 SUMMARY - Scientists found a link between left-handedness and a notion called “divergent thinking”, which is a kind of creativity that allows someone to generate new ideas. - People who tend to worry a lot take the quality of their work more seriously. - Humor influences intellect by exercising the brain and keeping it in tip-top shape. Next time your friends tell you to quit clowning around, just tell them you are exercising your intellect! - Curiosity and an inquisitive mind make people more intelligent. Scientists had been observing 6,000 people born in the last 50 years, and they found that preteen children who had got the most points on IQ tests grew up to be more curious and open-minded adults. - Scientists say that this preference for late hours could be due to the fact that brain activity (therefore, intellect) is so high that it challenges your body’s circadian rhythm. - The harder it is for a person to stay focused, the cleverer they are. How so? Again, it’s that intense brain activity. It’s just too hard to control. - People who live in cities built with a focus on walking have a higher intelligence indicator than those living in cities with lots of cars and other types of transport. - The less bright a person is, the more they overestimate their cognitive abilities. The same goes the other way around. Intelligent people aren't afraid to say, “I don't know”, and if they don't know, they can find this thing out later. - Intelligent people are able to overcome their impulses and suppress their emotions. They also typically think about the consequences before they do something. - Scientists agree that intelligent people tend to postpone their tasks for later. Psychologist Adam Grant says that procrastination is the key to innovation. Steve Jobs managed to use his procrastination strategically, letting his brain rest and switching to completely different tasks before finishing the ones he had started.

George Carlin "The American Dream" Best 3 Minutes of His Career
This video has been claimed falsely by WMG several times, and I am arguing with Youtube about it's content, but here is a transcript also: "There's a reason education SUCKS, and it's the same reason that it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It's never going to get any better, don't look for it, be happy with what you've got. Because the owners of this country don't want that. I'm talking about the REAL owners, now. The REAL owners, the BIG WEALTHY business interests that control things and make all the important decisions -- forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. YOU DON'T. You have no choice. You have OWNERS. They OWN YOU. They own EVERYTHING. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations; they've long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the State houses, the City Halls; they've got the judges in their back pockets, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all the news and information you get to hear. They gotcha by the BALLS. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying -- lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want -- they want MORE for themselves and less for everybody else. But I'll tell you what they don't want. They DON'T want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that, that doesn't help them. That's against their interests. That's right. They don't want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they're getting FUCKED by system that threw them overboard 30 fuckin' years ago. They don't want that. You know what they want? They want OBEDIENT WORKERS. OBEDIENT WORKERS. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passably accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime, and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now they're comin' for your SOCIAL SECURITY MONEY. They want your fuckin' retirement money. They want it BACK. So they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They'll get it. They'll get it ALL from you sooner or later -- 'cuz they OWN this fuckin' place. It's a big CLUB. And YOU AIN'T IN IT. You and I are NOT IN the big club. By the way, it's the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long, beating you over the in their media telling you what to believe -- what to think -- and what to buy. The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged. And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-workin people -- white collar, blue collar -- doesn't matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-workin people CONTINUE -- these are people of modest means -- continue to elect these RICH COCKSUCKERS who don't GIVE a fuck about them. They don't give a fuck about you, they don't GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOU. T HEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU -- AT ALL. AT ALL. AT ALL. You know? And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care ... that's what the owners count on, the fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that's being jammed up their assholes every day. Because the owners of this country know the truth -- it's called the American Dream ... 'cuz you have to be asleep to believe it." George Carlin's Final Words To The World...

Australia. History of Australia in a Nutshell.
The animated history of Australia in a nutshell. For centuries, rumors and legends are spreading among the traders, about the Terra Australis Incognita, unknown southern land. For Europeans, this is only a tale. However, in the middle of the sixteenth century, a series of world maps are created, so-called 'the maps from Dieppe,' documenting the latest Portuguese explorations, on which a mysterious land is found, called 'Le Grand Java.' A few centuries later, the map will be considered by some as the evidence of discovering Australia by Portuguese. Soon after, in sixteen-o-five a Dutch trader, Willem Janszoon, sets sails from the Dutch East Indies to search for a new land. According to his plan, he arrives at an unknown destination and names it 'Keer-Weer.' As it turns out, later on, it is Australia, modern-day Cape York. Since that moment, the sea route is frequented by the Dutch ships, which sometimes, sailing too far away are sighting the coast of Terra Australis. The Dutch, bring Terra Australis to the world maps. In sixteen-eighty-eight, William Dampier sets out on a voyage around the New Holland, returns and convinces the Admiralty to support another expedition. In August seventeen-sixty-eight, HMS Bark the Endeavor, under the command of Captain James Cook, sets sails from England. In the year seventeen-seventy arrives at the coast of New Holland and disembarks in several spots, including Botany Bay and Possession Island and gives the land a name - the New South Wales. Cook's expedition spreads the idea to colonize the new land, and with losing the thirteen colonies, the idea grows stronger. During that time, many people in Britain live in poverty and the penalty for theft is high. Choosing between hunger, and thievery, many Brits are choosing the theft and simultaneously overpopulates the local prisons. Officially to reduce the criminal population, and unofficially to make use of the human resources British Government sends out an expedition to create a penal colony and a bridgehead for further British colonization. In seventeen-eighty-eight under the patronage of Lord Sydney, an expedition arrives at Botany Bay under the command of Arthur Philip, carrying seven hundred and thirty convicts and two hundred and fifty free men plus the crew. Discovers a large bay, founds a settlement and names it after the patron of the expedition, Sydney. British push forward, and in eighteen-twenty-seven Edmund Lockyer founds Albany in modern-day Western Australia. Britain claims the entire continent. Along the increase of the free people, resistance grows, people do not want the penal status of the land. Finally, the British Parliament convinced, agrees to stop sending convicts to some of the colonies. Since eighteen-forty sending criminals will be gradually reduced, until the tenth of January eighteen-sixty-eight when the last shipment of convicts will reach the Western Australia. In eighteen-twenty-five the population equals about sixty thousand people, to reach four hundred-fifty thousand in eighteen-fifty-one, to touch, during a gold rush, over a million and fifty thousand people, just ten years later. Locally, Aborigines are oppressed. At the beginning of colonization, Aborigines not knowing the concept of property, do no know what treaties with the Europeans can bring. They are bringing disease and plagues decimating aborigines, and also the conquest of the natives pushed out from their homelands. Until the nineteen-sixty-seven, Aborigines, will not be considered as equal inhabitants and citizens of their native land. On the first of January nineteen-o-one, a dominion of the Commonwealth of Australia is proclaimed, and Sir Edmund Burton becomes the first prime minister of the federation. Along with the outbreak of the First World War, thousands of young people on a distant continent, are at war which they do not understand. Thousands of dead and wounded shock Australian public opinion, and make them realize the difference between the British and Australian interests. The Second World War breaks out. Like two decades earlier, Australia joins war along with Britain. However, the British are being defeated in the far east. Japan quickly takes new territories. Hong Kong falls. Singapore falls. Australia is under threat. The United Kingdom put on the defensive in Europe and cannot provide support. A turning point occurs. ANZAC asks the United States for protection. Along with its victories, the US takes the opportunity to pull Australia and New Zealand under its influence. The war in Europe ends and soon after also on the Pacific, the new world order is brought to life.

Study Finds No Reason to Delay Pregnancy After a Miscarriage
This is the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish A miscarriage is the natural loss of a pregnancy before the twentieth week. This happens to as many as twenty percent of known pregnancies. Experts say many pregnancies end before a woman even knows she was pregnant. Miscarriages are usually caused by chromosome problems that prevent the baby from developing. The online medical encyclopedia MedlinePlus says these problems are usually unrelated to the genes of either parent. But whatever the reason, the loss of a pregnancy can be heartbreaking. And sometimes the advice that follows can be painful, too. Some women are told to wait before trying to get pregnant again. A two thousand five report from the World Health Organization advised waiting at least six months. Some doctors advise a longer wait. But a new study from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland found no need to delay. Researchers examined the medical records of thirty thousand women. These women visited Scottish hospitals from nineteen eighty-one to two thousand. They had miscarriages in their first known pregnancies and became pregnant again.The study found that eighty-five percent of women who waited less than six months to get pregnant had live births. That was compared to seventy-three percent of women who waited more than two years.Those who quickly became pregnant again were also less likely to have a pregnancy form in their fallopian tubes, a dangerous condition. And they were less likely to have a stillbirth, the loss of a fetus after twenty weeks.They were also less likely to give birth by caesarean section. And they had fewer preterm births and fewer babies with low birth weight. The report appears in BMJ, formerly the British Medical Journal. The study found that about forty percent of women became pregnant again within six months. Twenty-five percent got pregnant within six to twelve months.But the researchers point out that their results are limited to Scottish records and cannot be generalized to all women. For example, compared to Western countries, women in developing countries start having children at an earlier age. The Scottish women who quickly became pregnant again after a miscarriage were more likely to be older. Older women might be less likely to delay because they know that the older they get, the higher the risks.And that's the VOA Special English Health Report.

The Truth About Single Moms
Single Mothers are talked about in glowing terms for their hard-work, determination and fortitude - but what is the truth about single moms? Motherhood has evolved quite a bit over the last fifty years: more women are having their children later in life - or in less traditional ways: before and outside marriage. Single motherhood has become so incredibly common that it is projected that soon - half of all children will live with a single mom at some point before the age of eighteen. What kind of impact does single motherhood have on society? What impact does single motherhood have on children? Are Fathers important - and what impact does growing up in a fatherless home have?

Pressed for Change #PressedforChange
Hi, I am Abu Junayed, 20 years old and i am the student of University of Dhaka. I am from Bangladesh and it is well known that Bangladesh is a densely populated country with small it’s small territory. In the plat form of world population, Bangladesh ranked fifth in Asia and eighth in the world According to the last national census, around 142 million people lived in Bangladesh and the growth rate of population is 1.37%. With this trend of growth rate, the population is expected to grow by another 40% that is 222 million by the mid century. Besides this, another fact is around 23% people live below the poverty line and among them around 13% is in extreme poverty level. A major portion of poor people are resided in the rural areas and urban slums of Bangladesh. The government of Bangladesh has recognized that a massive population forms an obstacle to economic development and has developed the National Population Policy 2012 which seeks to reduce fertility level. So it is clear that, people who are poor, are deprived of basic human facilities, possess lack of awareness about the negative impact of population growth. Even they don’t understand, behind their poor economic situation, excessive number of child is the most influencing factor. So, it is high time to raise awareness to those poor’s who are trapped in the vicious circle of poverty about family planning to decline to control birth rate. As a young leader of Bangladesh, I want to take such an initiative to raise awareness among the poor people to control birth rate. But this will not be the so called initiatives of raising awareness about birth control like raising awareness about the benefit of using contraceptive methods or future benefits of taking two children per family. My first attempt will be to raise awareness about child marriage. In Bangladesh, the rate of child marriage is high compared to other South Asian countries. Because, a major portion of poor people think that female children are burden to them so it will be better for us to leave them from the family through marriage. But they can’t realize that, if their female child got married at an early stage, they create extra burden to their family when they give birth a new child. Bangladesh is going through a demographic transition, it would be better for our economy as well as to our population resources, if we check our child marriage through raising awareness and ensure their employment opportunities in future.

Bill Gates, " Vaccinate to Depopulate": His Logic Explained
TrutherGirls T-Shirts: http://thetruthergirls.spreadshirt.com/ Bill Gates recently went on record at a TED conference declaring that his foundation's vaccine programs' goals were to reduce the poulation. This has led a lot of people to jump to the conclusion that he was saying his vaccines affect fertility. However, if you look at previous interviews on teh subject, you will see that it's not tat simple and that there is a lot of twisted logic involved. Bottom line: Gates is an admitted depopulationist. Would you trust his intentions when it comes to people's health? Prison Planet article on Gates, vaccines and depopulation with TED video embedded "The world today has 6.8 billion people. That's heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent!"

Pelé | Rise of the Brazilian Legend | The King of Football | Rising With Soccer
Edson Arantes do Nascimento born 23 October 1940), known as Pelé , is a retired Brazilian professional footballer who played as a forward. He is widely regarded as the greatest player of all time. Pelé has also been known for connecting the phrase "The Beautiful Game" with football. In 1999, he was voted World Player of the Century by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS). That year, France Football asked their former Ballon d'Or winners to choose the Football Player of the Century; they selected Pelé. In 1999, Pelé was elected Athlete of the Century by the IOC. That year, Time named him in their list of 100 most influential people of the 20th century. In 2013 he received the FIFA Ballon d'Or Prix d'Honneur in recognition of his career and achievements as a global icon of football. According to the IFFHS, Pelé is the most successful league goal-scorer in the world, scoring 1281 goals in 1363 games, which included unofficial friendlies and tour games. He was listed in the Guinness World Records for most career goals scored in football for this. During his playing days, Pelé was for a period the best-paid athlete in the world.In Brazil, he is hailed as a national hero for his accomplishments in football and for his outspoken support of policies that improve the social conditions of the poor. In 1961, Brazil President Jânio Quadros had Pelé declared a national treasure. During his career, he became known as "The Black Pearl" (A Pérola Negra), "The King of Football" (O Rei do Futebol), "The King Pelé" (O Rei Pelé) or simply "The King" (O Rei). Pelé began playing for Santos at age 15 and the Brazil national football team at 16. During his international career, he won three FIFA World Cups: 1958, 1962 and 1970, being the only player ever to do so. Pelé is the all-time leading goalscorer for Brazil with 77 goals in 91 games. At club level he is also the record goalscorer for Santos, and led them to the 1962 and 1963 Copa Libertadores. Pelé's "electrifying play and penchant for spectacular goals" made him a star around the world, and his club team Santos toured internationally in order to take full advantage of his popularity. Since retiring in 1977, Pelé has been a worldwide ambassador for football and has made many acting and commercial ventures. In 2010, he was named the Honorary President of the New York Cosmos.

This week's questions: 1:49 I know you've said that vitamins essentially make expensive pee, but what if you can't afford to get nutritious food often and are mostly eating carbs because you're super poor? Would vitamins help? 4:08 What do you recommend for weaning babies? Whole milk has been the traditional drink but what is the better alternative? 5:56 What are your thoughts of the new laws in California and a few other states that allow women to have access to birth control without seeing a doctor? 7:22 How/why does granular scar tissue form? If you have had issues with it once, what are the chances of having it happen again, particularly when it occurred postpartum? And why is it so darn painful? 9:13 Have you read any books or poetry about being a doctor? Any favorites or recommendations? 12:30 Have you seen the silly promotional video for the Squatty Potty? Is there truth to any of its health claims? 14:24 Other than rest, ice, compression, and elevation, is there anything else I should be doing for a calf strain? I'm on day 3. 15:16 Was wondering what the research says about how effective EPA and DHA fish-oil supplements are for treating depression? Particularly interested in how they can be used for treating depression in those with a history of being clinically underweight due to illness. 16:36 Due to the humidity, sometimes I just hate wearing my glasses (it feels icky). My mom said it will make my vision worse. Is that true? Does regularly not wearing prescriptions to correct vision problems have any long term cumulative effects? 19:08 I was diagnosed as a type I diabetic 20 years ago. Back then they said I'd probably be cured of it by now. What kind of realistic expectations should I set for the next 20 years? 22:43 How have EMRs affected physicians approaches to care? Helpful? Harmful? Burnout? 26:57 Can we as citizens do anything to lower healthcare costs? 27:26 Thoughts on Rogue One Trailer?

Political Parties: Crash Course Government and Politics #40
Today, Craig is going to talk about political parties and their role in American politics. So, when most people think about political parties they associate them with the common ideologies of the voters and representatives within that party, but the goal of a party is NOT to influence policies. The role of political parties is much simpler: to win control of the government. So today, we’re going got talk about why we have political parties in the first place and then finish with the five functions they use in reaching that goal. It’s a lot to cover, so next week we’ll talk about what each political party stands for and how that has changed historically.

High Court Hears Case on Birth Control Mandate
(23 Mar 2016) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY AP TELEVISION - AP CLIENTS ONLY Washington - March 23, 2016 1. Nuns exit Supreme Court 2. SOUNDBITE (English) Sister Loraine Marie Claire, petitioner in case "So, you know, now we find ourselves in a situation where the government is requiring us to make changes in our religious health care plan to include services that really violate our deepest-held religious beliefs as little sisters. It's hard to understand why the government is doing this. There are one third of Americans in our country that are not covered by this mandate, and you know there's large corporations such as Visa and Exxon, Pepsi that are fully-exempt form the mandate, and yet we are threatened... the government is threatening us with fines of over $70 million a year." 3. Wide of press conference 4. SOUNDBITE (English) Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life, petitioner "This is about freedom. This is not about us imposing any kind of restrictions on our employees. This is not about us denying them anything. This is about insisting the government not impose its pressure on us to violate our faith. A believer should not be forced by the government to have to choose between following its faith, and following the law. I was very encouraged by what I heard inside. Justice.. the chief justice pressed very hard... acknowledging what we're saying is that the government is hijacking our insurance plans." 5. Wide of press conference 6. SOUNDBITE (English) Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life, petitioner "It's very important to understand that it's not the government that is the judge of whether our religious beliefs are valid. This court has said that many times.The believer is the judge of that." 7. Wide of press conference 8. SOUNDBITE (English) Gretchen Borchelt, National Women's Law Center "We filed a brief in this case on behalf of 68 organizations. Women deserve insurance coverage of birth control no matter where they work. This birth control benefit has been a game-changer for women. It has advanced women's health, it has advanced women's equality, and it's saved women over one billion dollars in one year alone. These employers want to take that benefit away from their employees. The alternatives they proposed in court today are unworkable, and, frankly, insulting. If their views prevail, they will return their employees to the bad old days of sex discrimination in health care." 9. Wide of Supreme Court STORYLINE: The Supreme Court seems deeply divided over the arrangement devised by the Obama administration to spare faith-based groups from having to pay for birth control for women covered under their health plans. The court's conservative justices are sounding supportive Wednesday of the groups' complaint that the administration's effort violates their religious rights. The four liberal justices seem likely to vote to uphold the accommodation offered to faith-based colleges, charities and advocacy groups. A 4-4 tie would uphold four appeals court rulings in favor of the administration. But different rules would apply in parts of the country in which another appeals court has sided with the challengers. Among the challengers are Bishop David Zubik, head of the Catholic Diocese in Pittsburgh; the Little Sisters of the Poor, nuns who run more than two dozen nursing homes for impoverished seniors; evangelical and Catholic colleges in Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington, D.C., and the anti-abortion advocacy group Priests for Life. The administration contends that tens of thousands of women would be disadvantaged by a ruling for the groups. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/a39244b20a639b552c85563c439487e9 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

The History of Nikola Tesla - a Short Story
Friend me on Facebook! http://on.fb.me/gCSs8F For freelance/business inquiries - business@jeremiahwarren.com Nikola Tesla was born on July 10th 1856, in the territory of modern day Croatia to his two Serbian parents. Tesla grew up into bright inquisitive, yet eccentric child, who found himself fascinated by the world around him. Tesla once tried to fly by jumping off the roof of a barn while holding on to an umbrella. He devised a bug powered motor using Junebugs, but had to abort his experiment after a friend decided to eat some of the bugs (Tesla thought this was gross). He once attempted to generate electricity by rubbing two cats together, which resulted in two very mad cats and a scratched up Tesla. On June 6th, 1884, Tesla arrived in the United States. He was hired by Thomas Edison to do basic electrical engineering, but moved up to re-designing the direct current generators that ran Edison's business. Edison offered Tesla $50,000, or about $1.1 million in today's currency to make these improvements. After completing this assignment, Tesla asked about the payment for his work. Edison didn't pay out the money. He claimed that he wasn't serious about the payment, that Tesla didn't "understand American humor". Tesla eventually left Edison's company and partnered with George Westinghouse in 1888 to commercialize his system of alternating current (AC). The problem here is that alternating current competed with direct current, which Thomas Edison built his entire monopoly on. Thus begun the "War of the Currents". Edison started a massive smear campaign against Tesla and alternating current, trying to scare people into avoiding it's use. He spread false information about deaths from alternating current, lobbied against it, and went so far as to electrocute a circus elephant in public. Direct current had plenty of faults, it was the cause of death of countless children, and created numerous house fires. Also, the maximum reach of direct current was about two miles, which meant a substation had to be built to continue the current. They would still be building substations today if they were going to get electricity across the US. Tesla's alternating current could go for hundreds of miles. Lights running on alternating current were brighter, unlike the dull yellow lights running on direct current. Eventually, Edison had to give into the demands of the people, and go with alternating current. Tesla's influence goes much further than electricity. He had over 700 patents, and came up with ideas such as Robots Spark Plugs the Electric Arc Lamp an Xray Device Blade less turbines Wireless communication Electric motors Laser technology Neon Lights Remote Controls Cellular communication The radio An electrical bath to remove germs RADAR Wireless communication And much more Tesla died from heart failure in a room of the New Yorker Hotel, on January 7th 1943. Despite his fame and influence on the world, he died with significant debts, and all alone. While Edison is known as the inventor of the century, Tesla is only acknowledged as a paragraph in today's history books, forgotten, and unappreciated.

Why Cuban cab drivers earn more than doctors
In Cuba, cab drivers are the one percent Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Cuba’s economy works as a central planning model, where government ministries dole out resources and set everything from prices to inventories to salaries. The fact that a taxi driver can make so much more than a physician is a reflection of the Cuban government’s heavy focus on tourism. For years, the central planning apparatus has valued tourism as a key mechanism for both bringing in revenue as well as propagating the idea that Cuba is thriving. Many pesos are collected by the high prices on everything related to the tourism industry.

14. Demographic Transition in Developing Countries
Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) By 1950, in most of the underdeveloped world, mortality had fallen to about half its pre-modern rate. The birth rate, however, had remained high and, by 1950, was about twice the death rate. For the rest of the century, both rates fell dramatically and in parallel, maintaining the gap. The enormous excess of births over deaths in this period is known as 'the population explosion.' By 1990, the world population was growing at almost 90 million a year. Comparing the Demographic Transition in Europe and in the currently developing countries, the latter started 100 years later at a much lower economic level, fell from much higher birth and death rates, occurred much faster and with a much higher population growth rate, and added vastly more people. The developing countries saw the benefits that had accrued to the West as a result of the transition and then rapidly appropriated it for themselves. But while European countries may have quadrupled their population over 200 years, third world countries grew by as much as ten times in a much shorter period and they are still growing at a rapid rate. The problems of this rapid growth (still about 80 million a year) abound. The traditional scourges of starvation (9 million deaths a year), disease (AIDS, Tuberculosis, Malaria -- all claim between 1 and 2 million deaths per year) and war (Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs ~200,000 deaths) are all far too small to stabilize population. People in developing countries who want to limit their fertility, are often afraid of contraceptives (especially side-effects) and yet are willing to undergo horrendously dangerous illegal abortions to avert a childbirth. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

at least a dozen babies have died in a pneumonia vaccine trial conducted by GlaxoSmithKline in Argentina. The Argentina Federation of Health Professionals (Fesprosa) asserts that children of poor families are being used for the trials, and parents are bullied into signing consent forms. The trials are still continuing, even though at least 12 infants have already died. Fesprosa maintains that there is no state control and that there are no ethical requirements. This doesn't come as any surprise to those who know how these kinds of human trials usually occur. Generally speaking, vaccine trials are conducted in Third World countries on poor people who often feel trapped into participating in human health experiments in order to receive medical care or other necessities. One doesn't find these kinds of experiments going on in places like the United States or Europe, where names and faces of victims would surely get out into the media and cause a big stir. Instead, the infants of impoverished people, who often can't even read or write, are used in the trials. Apparently, the lead investigator of the trial didn't think it was any big concern that over 12 babies have already died since deaths from respiratory illnesses caused by the pneumococcal bacteria kill even more people. Of course, this is no comfort to the poor mothers whose babies are sacrificed for the monetary gains of a pharmaceutical giant. The great aunt of one of the victims alleges that once children begin to participate in these trials, there is no way out. Mothers who try to remove their children from the trials are browbeaten into submission, being told that their children will never receive any other vaccines if removed before a trial is completed. Imagine being a poor, uneducated mother and having to make such a choice. (Remember, too, that some can't even read the consent forms they are signing!)

African pro-life activist schools BBC anchor on why developing countries don't want abortion
Priti Patel, the UK Secretary of State for International Development, has announced extra public expenditure on ‘family planning’, including ‘‘safe abortions’’, as part of the international aid budget. Speaking at the Family Planning Summit 2017, co-sponsored by the Gates Foundation, which currently promotes contraceptives but not abortions, Patel announced that her Department would increase its aid for ‘family planning’ by 25%. In practical terms, this means an extra £225 million per year, over the next 5 years. Patel confirmed that the enormous sum of extra public expenditure she has pledged would include the provision of so-called ‘safe abortion’ in developing countries, and International Development Questions in the days thereafter saw Patel re-affirm her support for Government support for overseas ‘family planning’. This means that UK taxpayers will now be spending millions more on overseas abortions, amounting up to a total now of £1.1 billion in foreign aid in that area alone, despite the Government cap on UK public sector pay that has frozen salaries for British doctors, nurses, and others below inflation for 7 years. It also comes after NHS trusts reported a £886 million deficit for the first 9 months of the financial year forcing them to cut beds across UK national hospitals. This is despite recent polling showing that 65% of the British public (including 65% of women) oppose any spending on abortion overseas, with 79% (including 84% of women) wanting increased support for UK women under financial pressure to have an abortion. Statements from the UK Government indicate that this funding will be targeted at developing countries in Africa and this is likely to include not only providing abortions in countries where it is legal but funding large abortion lobby groups to attempt to change the laws in African nations where the country has chosen to keep abortion illegal. The use of UK taxpayer money to undermine the sovereignty of these African nations by funding abortions and trying to change laws in this area has recently been described by Nigerian activist Obianuju Ekeocha on the BBC as “a form of ideological colonisation”. Polling across African nations show that abortion is not wanted with people overwhelmingly seeing abortion as morally unacceptable with for example 92% of people in Ghana, 88% in Uganda and 82% in Kenya stating that abortion is morally unacceptable.

The 'Poor Man's Thyroid Test'
http://www.HypothyroidRevolution.org - Hypothyroidism is a deficiency of thyroid hormone and is one of most common thyroid problems in the Western countries. Estimated 4 percent of the adult American population has an underactive thyroid function which is primarily caused by autoimmune thyroid condition called Hashimotos disease. http://www.HypothyroidRevolution.org Women are affected six times more frequently than men. In addition to autoimmune Hashimotos disease, there are numerous other causes of thyroid dysfunction that can result in hypothyroid symptoms despite of the normal lab test results. Unfortunately, the following 7 causes of hypothyroidism cannot be identified using conventional blood tests and most likely will be missed by your conventional doctor: 1 Autoimmune Hashimoto's disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in industrialized countries, however most conventional doctors do not check for it. 2 Hypothalamus dysfunction that is difficult to establish and could not be seen on the thyroid tests. 3 Pituitary dysfunction that means the pituitary gland cannot send a message to the thyroid gland to produce more thyroid hormone when it needed. 4 Thyroid gland dysfunction when the gland itself does not work properly and could not produce enough thyroid hormone to meet body's needs. 5 Elevated Thyroid-binding globulin (TBG) due to hormonal imbalances caused by birth control pills, menopause or hormone replacement therapy with estrogen. TGB binds thyroid hormone and prevents it from the entering the cell and/or conversion into the active T3 form. The person will have hypothyroid symptoms despite normal lab test results. 6 Over- or under-conversion of T4 into the metabolically active T3 hormone in the liver and intestine that could cause thyroid symptoms. 7 Thyroid cellular receptor dysfunction due to high cortisol, vitamin A deficiency, over-conversion to T3 and other reasons preventing the thyroid hormone from entering into the cell and perform its metabolic action. 5 Essentials Of Effective Hypothyroidism Treatment Plan 1 The proper thyroid testing and diagnosis are the key to establish your effective hypothyroidism treatment plan. 2 Your diet has a big influence on your thyroid function. There are certain foods that support or suppress the production of thyroid hormones, immune system and sabotage your weight loss efforts.Most hypothyroid patients have food allergies, malabsorption and nutritional deficiencies such as low vitamin D, selenium, B12 and other vitamins of group B, iron and magnesium. 3 If you have thyroid imbalance, you are most likely to have other hormonal problems, blood sugar dysregulation and being under stress that work against your thyroid. Without addressing these issues you risk never stabilize your thyroid function. 4 Your gut and liver function play the key role in conversions of inactive T4 into the active T3 thyroid hormone. If you have digestive issues and/or sluggish liver your body cannot convert thyroid hormones effectively and you can continue to have hypothyroid symptoms does not matter how much thyroid medication you take. 5 Consider environmental toxins as a contributing factor to your thyroid dysfunction. We all are exposed to chemicals and toxins, however those who have effective detoxification process enjoy a better health. Minimizing exposure and supporting detoxification pathways can help to support your thyroid gland.
