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.

Documentary - The Truth about Birth Control (full movie)
 
53:36
Documentary - The Truth about Birth Control (full movie) Birth control, also known as contraception and fertility control, is a method or device used to prevent pregnancy. Birth control has been used since ancient times, but effective and safe methods of birth control only became available in the 20th century. Planning, making available, and using birth control is called family planning. Some cultures limit or discourage access to birth control because they consider it to be morally, religiously, or politically undesirable. The most effective methods of birth control are sterilization by means of vasectomy in males and tubal ligation in females, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and implantable birth control. This is followed by a number of hormone-based methods including oral pills, patches, vaginal rings, and injections. Less effective methods include physical barriers such as condoms, diaphragms and birth control sponges and fertility awareness methods. The least effective methods are spermicides and withdrawal by the male before ejaculation. Sterilization, while highly effective, is not usually reversible; all other methods are reversible, most immediately upon stopping them. Safe sex practices, such as with the use of male or female condoms, can also help prevent sexually transmitted infections. Other methods of birth control do not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. Emergency birth control can prevent pregnancy if taken within the 72 to 120 hours after unprotected sex. Some argue not having sex as a form of birth control, but abstinence-only sex education may increase teenage pregnancies if offered without birth control education, due to non-compliance. In teenagers, pregnancies are at greater risk of poor outcomes. Comprehensive sex education and access to birth control decreases the rate of unwanted pregnancies in this age group. While all forms of birth control can generally be used by young people, long-acting reversible birth control such as implants, IUDs, or vaginal rings are more successful in reducing rates of teenage pregnancy. After the delivery of a child, a woman who is not exclusively breastfeeding may become pregnant again after as few as four to six weeks. Some methods of birth control can be started immediately following the birth, while others require a delay of up to six months. In women who are breastfeeding, progestin-only methods are preferred over combined oral birth control pills. In women who have reached menopause, it is recommended that birth control be continued for one year after the last period. About 222 million women who want to avoid pregnancy in developing countries are not using a modern birth control method. Birth control use in developing countries has decreased the number of deaths during or around the time of pregnancy by 40% (about 270,000 deaths prevented in 2008) and could prevent 70% if the full demand for birth control were met. By lengthening the time between pregnancies, birth control can improve adult women's delivery outcomes and the survival of their children. In the developing world women's earnings, assets, weight, and their children's schooling and health all improve with greater access to birth control. Birth control increases economic growth because of fewer dependent children, more women participating in the workforce, and less use of scarce resources.

Health Has No Borders - Global Birth Control Access - Narrated by Connie Britton- Planned Parenthood
 
02:06
Visit http://www.ppaction.org/noborders to sign the petition! And check out Connie Britton's blog on International Women's Day on Huffington Post: http://huff.to/yJoZau ©2012 Planned Parenthood® Federation of America "HEALTH HAS NO BORDERS - PLANNED PARENTHOOD - NARRATED BY CONNIE BRITTON" - PLANNED PARENTHOOD VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: More than two hundred million women around the world want to plan or avoid pregnancy but lack access to modern contraceptive methods. In poorer countries, where family planning services are not readily available, young and rural women must often suffer harsh consequences. Young women, who are unable to prevent pregnancy, are forced to drop out of school. Many women have more children than they can afford. Unsafe abortion and maternal deaths increase. So more children grow up in households without mothers. All of these health consequences put a financial strain on families and make it harder for developing countries to promote healthy, peaceful and prosperous societies. But when these countries have access to family planning, the picture completely changes. There are fewer unintended pregnancies, which means fewer complicated pregnancies and unsafe abortions and ultimately less pregnancy-related deaths. Women have more time and resources to care for children they already have. And women then are more likely to stay in school, pursue careers and contribute to the local economy. And thriving local economies will eventually lead to political stability and healthier families. The U.S. is a leading source of support for many global health programs, including contraception, and has been for 40 years. But when U.S. funding is cut, women all over the world feel its impact with restricted access to contraceptives and the closing of clinics. Now this is where you come in. Congress decides how this money is allocated. But Congress also represents YOU. When you tell your representative in Congress that women's health is important to you, you empower your representative to support international family planning programs, which lead to fewer unplanned pregnancies, more women in schools and jobs, and ultimately, healthier and stronger futures for all. Sign your name to Planned Parenthood's "Health Has No Borders" petition to show your support for robust investments in global health and the elimination of disparities everywhere. When it comes to health, there should be no borders.

WHAT YOUR FOOT SHAPE REVEALS ABOUT YOU
 
03:51
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. They’re easygoing, adventurous, and in constant search of change. - People with isolated toes usually prefer to defy public opinion and to do everything in their own manner. - People with such feet prefer to carefully plan everything in advance. They’re very organized and keep everything under control in any situation. - A gap between the second and third toe: if you have this type of foot, you are likely able to perfectly separate logic from emotion. You can become an excellent diplomat, analyst, or trader. Based on this video, what are your main character traits? Tell us in the comments below!

Most BIZARRE Creatures Created By Science!

Check out the most bizarre creatures created by science! From terrifying to amazing animals, this top 10 list of crazy creatures created by man is mindblowing! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "STRANGEST Things Grown In a LAB!" video here: https://youtu.be/CmOCASELgDU Watch our "UNBELIEVABLE Animals That SAVED Lives!" video here: https://youtu.be/StFsHsN9koE Watch our "STRANGE Things Found INSIDE Animals!" video here: https://youtu.be/ltDXiHzRhkg 10. Spider-Goats Wait, what?! After the inception of Spiderman in Marvel Studios, researchers at Utah State University and the University of Wyoming were inspired. They have successfully created a hybrid goat that spews out high contents of spider silk in its milk! Because that was something I was definitely missing in my life!!! We all know that the special silk gene found in spiders helps them form webs and catch their prey. Spider silk is believed to be really tough, and given its mass density, it is regarded to be even tougher than steel. The scientists were hoping to find a way to harvest spider silk on a large scale since it actually could have many different useful applications. So the university researchers found a way to incorporate a harvested spider gene into a common goat’s DNA and hallelujah it worked! The goats’ milk was later tested and high silk protein contents were found in almost 70% of the specimens. This could lead to a new range of applications in the medical as well as the automobile industry. The material can absorb about three times its body weight and can be useful for manufacturing ligaments and tendons. It can also be useful for making airbags for cars and bulletproof vests. From an ethical perspective, they say that this gene modification neither imposes any health hazards, nor any behavioral changes in the goats. We will have to wait and see... 9. Glofish: The lights out on an “Earth Hour” definitely won’t stop your colorful Glofish from glowing! Too bad its genes won’t allow it. This fish was first mutated in 1999 by Dr. Zhiywan Gong, who along with his teammates, was working on a luminesce protein in Jellyfish. The team harvested this protein and injected it into a Zebra fish’s embryo. Why?? The main motivation behind this experiment was to design a fish that could detect the presence of toxins for quantifying oceanic pollutions. In theory these scientists were trying to do something good, but I am not sure about the ethical implications, that is up for you to decide. The experiment turned out to be a huge success, both scientifically and commercially. Aquarium enthusiasts loved them, and the Glofish became the first and only genetically altered animal to exist as a domestic pet on a large scale. This glimmering fish can be made in several bright colors and is the most popular children’s choice at a pet store. These fish are able to absorb light from their surroundings and then re-emit it which gives it that captivating glow. Also if you happen to have a power outage, an aquarium with a bunch of Glofish might be helpful in case you stumble around in the dark. 8. Sudden-Death Mosquito Hate mosquitoes? You can’t kill them all, but you most certainly can stop them from multiplying. Scientists from British Biotech Company, Oxitec have developed a genetically modified mosquito that could be the end of viruses that cause millions of infections and deaths each year due to malaria, dengue, and all other kinds of diseases.. This new breed of mosquito produces flightless females and practically sterile males that either cannot reproduce or whose offspring die before reaching maturity. Oxitec released the mosquitos with the altered deadly protein onto an island. The transfer of bad genes sometimes even killed the female mosquitoes before they could reproduce, resulting in an overall decrease in the mosquito population. Hence the name “Sudden-Death”. Death for them, not for you. However, this experiment has been highly criticized by scientists and environmentalists who argue it is unethical to wipe out an entire species. There also might be huge negative effects on the ecosystem. What can be good about mosquitos? Who cares about them anyway? Well, according to Nature magazine, without mosquitos thousands of plant species would lose their pollinators and many animal species would lose their food source. However, it is very interesting that many scientists and researchers say that the niche would be filled quickly by other organisms and life might go on just as before, or even better!!! The inventors of the sudden-death mosquito argue that this project would help humans fight off deadly diseases but it is very hard to say what the consequences to the global ecosystem might be.

Why Cuban cab drivers earn more than doctors
 
05:01
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.

BRAZIL : INCREASE IN STERILISATION AS A CONTRACEPTIVE METHOD
 
02:18
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.

The Houses Where China's Babies Are Abandoned
 
03:44
In an attempt to provide refuge for the 10,000 babies abandoned in China every year, Chinese authorities are funding “baby hatches”—tiny houses where parents can dump their unwanted children, no questions asked. Across China, 10,000 babies are abandoned every year, often on the side of the road. One out of three of those left on the street die. Now authorities have launched a radical experiment to rescue at least some of these tossed-aside tots. Baby hatches, 32 of which are dotted throughout China, serve as safe houses for parents to abandon children they feel they can't or simply won't raise themselves. And while these pastel-colored hatches may look like dollhouses, the babies placed inside are all too real. The baby hatch in Jinan, China, is painted bubblegum pink. Cartoon cats and clowns drawn on the façade appear cheerful, but the parents who come to abandon their babies are anything but. Holding the child for the last time, the parent approaches the hatch and presses a button on the outside of the building to anonymously alert an on-site nurse. The room inside is empty—save for an infant’s scale and an incubator where the parent leaves the child. Once the parent has left the premises, a nurse retrieves the child and brings it to a nearby orphanage. As part of our collaboration with MSNBC, Vocativ went to Guangzhou, China, to meet some of the parents who chose to use the baby hatch. Families tend to do so anonymously, but Lai Li, the father of a deformed little girl, was willing to speak up. In an interview with Vocativ, he says, “When my child was born, the doctors told me: ‘Your child was born with cleft palate and shortened legs, and our hospital does not accept this type of child.'” Many of the Chinese parents who abandon their children do so because their child is sick and they cannot afford proper care. “I have no money to raise my child," he says. "Who can we turn to? Who is willing to help us? When you are at the end of your rope…there is simply nothing you can do." Locals in Jinan say at least eight babies are left in the hatch every day. An estimated 1,400 babies have been abandoned since 2011 at China’s hatches. http://voc.tv/1sKTco5 Subscribe! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=vocativvideo See more on our website: http://www.vocativ.com Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/vocativ Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Vocativ

Australia. History of Australia in a Nutshell.
 
10:38
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.

Overpopulation facts - the problem no one will discuss: Alexandra Paul at TEDxTopanga
 
08:37
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.

INDYLIFE FOUR CHARTS BILL GATES LOVES BECAUSE THEY PROVE THE WORLD IS GETTING BETTER
 
12:08
Bill and Melinda Gates are optimistic about the future, and they think you should be, too. As the co-chairs of the Gates Foundation explain in their recent Gates Letter, an annual review of global progress, the world is doing a lot better than the public gives it credit for. People aren't as poor, as sick, or as unequal as they used to be. The letter includes a dizzying number of charts, graphs, and stats illustrating that point, but here are four that highlight some of the Gateses favourite leaps. 1. The polio vaccine has been incredibly effective in eradicating disease. 1. The polio vaccine has been incredibly effective in eradicating disease. 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 vaccine, countries have taken concerted efforts to get people inoculated. 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 it. 2. Contraceptive use is higher than it's ever been. 2. Contraceptive use is higher than it's ever been. Gates Letter One of the most effective methods for ensuring economic and social success 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. In many developing countries, fertility rates are extremely high. This is due in part to women bearing more children, because they know some will not survive infancy. But that keeps them in a cycle of poverty, as resources spread thin. Contraceptives help break that cycle, 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. 3. Some 122 million kids' lives have been saved over the last 20 years. 3. Some 122 million kids' lives have been saved over the last 20 years. Gates Letter Gates has called this the most beautiful chart in the world. 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.

Women Working: What’s the Pill Got to Do With It?
 
05:46
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.

POLITICAL THEORY - Karl Marx
 
09:28
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. Openly Marxist parties received a total of only 1,685 votes in the 2010 UK general election, out of the nearly 40 million ballots cast…” You can read more on this and many other topics on our blog TheBookofLife.org at this link: https://goo.gl/Rt3zri MORE SCHOOL OF LIFE Our website has classes, articles and products to help you think and grow: https://goo.gl/93tGtZ Watch more films on POLITICAL THEORY in our playlist: http://bit.ly/2dma0Sn Do you speak a different language to English?

Do you believe that people should be judged by their character, not their skin color? Do you believe in freedom of religion? If you believe these things, you’re probably not a progressive. You might think you’re a progressive. I used to think I was. My show, “The Rubin Report,” was originally part of the progressive “Young Turks” network. Progressives struck me as liberals, but louder. Progressives were the nice guys; they looked out for the little guy; they cared about women and minorities; they embraced change. In short, who wouldn’t want to be a progressive? But over the last couple years, the meaning of the word “progressive” has changed. Progressives used to say, “I may disagree with what you say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it.” Not anymore. Banning speakers whose opinions you don’t agree with from college campuses – that’s not progressive. Prohibiting any words not approved of as “politically correct” – that’s not progressive. Putting “Trigger Warnings” on books, movies, music, anything that might offend people – that’s not progressive either. All of this has led me to be believe that much of the left is no longer progressive, but regressive. This is one of the reasons I’ve spent so much time on my show talking about The Regressive Left. This regressive ideology doesn’t judge people as individuals, but as a collective. If you’re black, or female, or Muslim, or Hispanic, or a member of any other minority group, you’re judged differently than the most evil of all things: a white, Christian male. The Regressive Left ranks minority groups in a pecking order to compete in a kind of “Oppression Olympics”. Gold medal goes to the most offended. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream that his children would be judged by their character and not their skin color was a liberal idea, but these days, it’s not a progressive ideal. And what about religious freedom - the idea that no one else can tell you what you have to believe? Surely progressives still support that basic right. Well, not so much. I’m a married gay man, so you might think that I appreciate the government forcing a Christian baker or photographer or florist to act against their religion in order to cater, photograph or decorate my wedding. But you’d be wrong. A government that can force Christians to violate their conscience can force me to violate mine. If a baker won’t bake you a cake, find another baker; don’t demand that the state tell him what to do with his private business. I’m pro-choice. But a government that can force a group of Catholic nuns - literally called the Little Sisters of the Poor - to violate their faith and pay for abortion-inducing birth control can force anyone to do anything. That’s not progressive; that’s regressive! Today's progressivism has become a faux-moral movement, hurling charges of racism, bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia, Islamophobia and a slew of other meaningless buzzwords at anyone they disagree with. The battle of ideas has been replaced by a battle of feelings, and outrage has replaced honesty. Diversity reigns supreme – as long as it’s not that pesky diversity of thought. This isn’t the recipe for a free society, it’s a recipe for authoritarianism. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/why-i-left-left

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.

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?

01:00:31
A winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and bestselling author of "Banker to the Poor," Muhammad Yunus Comes to Google to talk about his new book "A World of Three Zeroes?" Joining him on stage is Google X Quantumagician, Jack Hidary, for a fireside chat. Muhammad Yunus, who pioneered microcredit and social business, and earned a Nobel Peace Prize for his work in alleviating poverty, is one of today's most trenchant social critics. Now he declares it's time to admit that the capitalist engine is broken--that in its current form it inevitably leads to rampant inequality, massive unemployment, and environmental destruction. We need a new economic system that unleashes altruism as a creative force just as powerful as self-interest. Is this a pipe dream? Not at all. In the last decade, thousands of people and organizations have already embraced Yunus's vision of a new form of capitalism, launching innovative social businesses designed to serve human needs rather than accumulate wealth. They are bringing solar energy to millions of homes in Bangladesh; turning thousands of unemployed young people into entrepreneurs through equity investments; financing female-owned businesses in cities across the United States; bringing mobility, shelter, and other services to the rural poor in France; and creating a global support network to help young entrepreneurs launch their start-ups. In A World of Three Zeros, Yunus describes the new civilization emerging from the economic experiments his work has helped to inspire. He explains how global companies like McCain, Renault, Essilor, and Danone got involved with this new economic model through their own social action groups, describes the ingenious new financial tools now funding social businesses, and sketches the legal and regulatory changes needed to jumpstart the next wave of socially driven innovations. And he invites young people, business and political leaders, and ordinary citizens to join the movement and help create the better world we all dream of.

18. Economic Impact of Population Growth
 
01:11:27
Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) 1) Population in China: Until recently, Chinese families did not much alter their fertility depending on life events like deaths of children. However, under government prodding and eventually coercion, fertility drops drastically in China in the 1970s, but, to counteract momentum, the One-Child Policy starts in 1979-80. 2) Population Growth and Economic Development: In Asia, rapid fertility drops have preceded economic booms by ~15 years. In this time, children grow up and become workers. With many workers and fewer children to support, savings and investments rise causing the boom. Non-Asian countries with rapid fertility drops, like Ireland, fit this model. Sub-Saharan Africa, with still high fertility, makes little economic progress. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Hormonal Contraception May Double HIV/AIDS Risk
 
02:32
A new study finds that the use of a hormonal contraceptive popular with women in eastern and southern Africa doubles their risk of becoming infected with HIV. And when it is used by HIV-infected women, it doubles the risk they will infect their male partners. The large study was conducted in sub-Saharan Africa, where HIV - the virus that causes AIDS - has been spread mainly through heterosexual sex.

Repairers of the Breach is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization that “seeks to build a moral agenda rooted in a framework that uplifts our deepest moral and constitutional values to redeem the heart and soul of our country.” Rev Dr William BarberBarber founded the Forward Together Moral Movement that gained national acclaim with the Moral Monday protests at the North Carolina General Assembly in 2013. The protests drew thousands of people calling for the state government to embrace a moral public policy agenda, and resulted in 1,200 arrests. Barber is the pastor of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina, and served as president of the North Carolina chapter of the NAACP from 2006-2017. The Terry Sanford Distinguished Lecture is made possible by support from the William R. Kenan Charitable Trust.

It is held in honor of the late Terry Sanford, who served as North Carolina governor, U.S. senator, president of Duke University, and founder of the Duke Sanford School. The school is celebrating the Centennial of Sanford’s birth during this academic year. The Boyarsky Lectureship, created through a gift from Drs. Saul and Rose Boyarsky, brings distinguished lecturers to Duke who can inspire achievement in social justice and public health through science. In addition to the Sanford School of Public Policy and the Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities, & History of Medicine, the event is co-sponsored by Duke’s Center for Child and Family Policy, Sanford School’s Bridging Communities, and POLIS: Center for Political Leadership, Innovation and Service.

Keeping contraception supplies flowing in Tanzania
 
02:32
Mwema lives in a densely populated and impoverished neighbourhood in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. She relies on contraception delivered by nurses on auto-rickshaws, and if stocks run low this can leave her without the ability to space her births or plan her life. Find out how Marie Stopes International is working with organisations like the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to make sure supplies never run low.

14. Demographic Transition in Developing Countries
 
01:10:36
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.

High Court Hears Case on Birth Control Mandate
 
02:50
(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
