Women's access to health care greatly affected by proposed defunding of ...

Planned Parenthood has been at the center of a national debate over funding after investigative videos showed Planned Parenthood employees discussing the selling of fetal tissues. The videos, released by the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress, show conversations of Planned Parenthood employees from clinics in various states, including California, Colorado and Texas, with members of the Center Medical Group falsely acting as representatives of a biomedical technology company inquiring about fetal tissues available for sale. The videos inspired outrage among conservatives, who are demanding the defunding of Planned Parenthood on the federal level once Congress returns from the summer recess. This discontent was exemplified through an open letter to House leaders in which 18 conservative Congress members said they would not support any motion that would grant funding to Planned Parenthood. Darian Gist, president of the College Republicans, echoes this discontent over federal funding of Planned Parenthood and supports measures to defund the organization, but wonders if Republicans will be able to pass such a measure. Gist (junior-secondary social studies) said it will be interesting to see how the debate plays out and if the organization will lose its federal funding, citing Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell’s statements that Republicans do not have the votes to defund the organization and will need to wait until a Republican is in the White House.

Patients, doctors say Puerto Rico's health system in critical condition

For many doctors and hospitals in Puerto Rico, it’s the island’s ailing health care system that’s in need of urgent care. So when Hillary Clinton makes her first campaign stop in Puerto Rico on Friday afternoon, it’s no surprise that a roundtable discussion with health care industry and patient representatives is on the agenda. General practitioner Miguel Sosa, 64, said he employs about 30 doctors in seven offices in Puerto Rico, and a majority of his patients are enrolled in Medicaid. With that program facing a $200 million and growing budget shortfall on the island, Sosa says, he has submitted $200,000 in invoices over the past six months that have gone unpaid or been only partly paid. “It’s a problem because I need to pay to a doctor, to the nurse, to the rent, lights, telephone, all that. And I need to take a credit line in the bank, and I pay interest for that,” he said while standing in an examination room, a stethoscope around the collar of his white guayabera. Puerto Rico’s economic crisis came to a public head in June when Gov. Alejandro García Padilla announced that the island’s $73 billion debt was unpayable. For years, the U.S. territory has been borrowing to pay its bills — including funds to sustain Medicaid, in which nearly half its 3.5 million residents are enrolled. And with the health care industry the largest employment sector after the government — accounting ...  

Media asked to promote sex education

By Francis Emorut                                                                             KAMPALA - The media has been asked to promote sex education to curb teenage pregnancies, child mothers, abortions and other related sexual vices. The call was made by Reproduction Health Uganda (RHU) during a three-day media and sexuality training at Eureka Place Hotel in Kampala on Thursday. Participants from the print and electronic media, as well social media, across the country took part. The training aimed at understanding advocacy and the role of the media in advocating sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR) issues and coming up with a way forward for reporting on sexuality in a positive manner. The media practitioners were taken through the sexual reproductive health and rights situation in Uganda, body image influencers and anatomy and physiology of the male and female reproductive systems. According to Alex Kiwanuka, the youth officer at RHU, the impact of sex education is critical as it creates demand for uptake for sexual reproductive health services, causes reduction in sexual partners and in...  

Work leg muscles to avoid painful groin pull

The once-common gym machines that caused a fair share of laughter were the abductor machine, where the legs were spread against resistance, and the adductor machine, where widely spread legs were closed against resistance. Those easy-to-use machines have disappeared from many gyms. That's not a bad thing. Forcefully opening and closing your legs while in a seated position is not a movement performed in any sport. In fact, those machines can actually put damaging stress on your back and knee joints. It's better to work those important muscles in other ways. Unfortunately, too many folks skip working their adductors and abductors (by the way, it's easy to remember the difference; the 'abductors' are the outer thigh muscles because they 'abduct,' or 'move away' from the body's centre mass). With winter coming on, it's extremely important to strengthen these two muscle groups, especially if you're a snow rider. If you 'catch' your ski or board, you can sprain or even tear a weak adductor. The same can happen if you slip on an icy step or sidewalk. The yanking action of an accidental split can cause a very painful groin pull, which may limit your athletic activity for months. Serious groin pulls can last for years, and little can be done to repair them. The solution is obviously prevention rather than repair. There are creative ways to build the inner and outer thigh muscles in the position they are actually used. For example: use a machine where the bar or handle connection devi...  

Tokyo Leads Asia Stock Markets Lower Ahead of US Jobs Report

Asian stock markets were lower Friday with Tokyo's index down more than 2 percent as caution prevailed before the release of the monthly U.S. jobs report and the resumption of trading on Chinese stock markets next week. KEEPING SCORE: Japan's Nikkei 225 tumbled 2.6 percent to 17,687.18 and South Korea's Kospi dropped 1.5 percent to 1,887.61. Hong Kong's Hang Seng shed 0.6 percent to 20,809.50 and Australia's S&P/ASX 200 fell 0.1 percent to 5,021.60. Stock markets in Southeast Asia also were lower. US JOBS: The U.S. government issues the August jobs report on Friday, which could play a big role in whether the Federal Reserve decides to raise interest rates at its Sept. 16-17 meeting. Analysts are forecasting that employers produced a healthy increase of 220,000 jobs and that the unemployment rate fell to 5.2 percent. Record low interest rates since the 2008 financial crisis have been a boon for stock markets so investors await the jobs data and the Fed meeting with trepidation. In recent weeks, market expectations of a September rate hike have dimmed because of signs of weakness in the global economy. ANALYST'S TAKE: The upcoming jobs report "may dictate some trader caution today," said Ric Spooner, chief market analyst at CMC Markets in Sydney. "The major risk appears to be if the outcome is a strong jobs number," he said in a market commentary. "Given that the Fed is comfortable with the broad trend of job growth, a strong number would improve the atmosphere for a Septe...  

European markets expected to open lower after ECB rally

Europe Markets European markets are expected to fall at the open on Friday, after rallying Thursday afternoon following European Central Bank President Mario Draghi's reiteration of his "willingness to act" to protect the euro. London's benchmark FTSE 100 index is expected to open 61 points lower at 6133, Germany's Dax is called 130 points lower at 10187 and France's Cac is set to open 57 points lower at 4596. Draghi spoke of his "willingness to act" as he left the door open for further policy action Thursday afternoon, after the ECB downgraded its forecast for growth and inflation. Asian stock markets moved lower on Friday, as Chinese markets remained closed for a four-day weekend to commemorate the end of World War Two in Asia-Pacific. Investors' focus is expected to be on the U.S. nonfarm payrolls report for August, due at 0830 Eastern time, and likely to be one of the key pieces of data determining whether the U.S. Federal Reserve raises interest rates later in the month.

Woolsington dancing star Hayley Walker doing Dance City proud

Teenager Hayley Walker is jumping for joy after being given the chance to dance her way to stardom. The budding dancer, from Woolsington, Newcastle is one of 50 people heading to the prestigious Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance this month. At only 16-years-old, Hayley has already dazzled in her performances with the English Youth Ballet company in their productions of Swan Lake and Coppelia, and as an orphan in the Theatre Royal adaptation of Annie. And having beaten thousands of other auditionees, most a lot older than herself, Hayley said: “I’m so excited. I was so happy when they told me I got in.” She’ll be be leaving Newcastle to move down to the capital to follow her dancing dreams, following in the footsteps of fellow Dance City students Connor Scott, Jonathan Blake, Jordan Robson, Marco Emke, Adam Park, Sam Draper and Joe George, who all successfully landed a place at Rambert. Hayley Walker, 16, who has gained a place at the Rambert Dance School in London However, Hayley is the first female Dance City student to ever attain one of the highly sought-after spots. She said: “It’s quite unheard of to hear a girl from the North East get in to the school; I can’t believe I’m the first Dance City girl to get a spot. “The competition is so fierce in the auditions, it can sometimes be hard to make yourself stand out from the other 40 girls auditioning with you, especially when some of them are alrea...
