Sharp increase in women over 40 having babies, with rates now exceeding ...

Updated October 24, 2014 16:46:01 Figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics reveal more Australian women over 40 are having babies than ever before. A record 12,800 babies were born to women over 40 in 2011, a significant increase from 2001, when there were 7,100 births to women aged 40 plus.Obstetrician Dr Michael Gannon, president of the Australian Medical Association in WA, said there was good and bad news in the statistics."It's good that we are having some success in reducing the rates of teenage pregnancy," Dr Gannon told 720 ABC Perth. He said much of the increase in older women having babies was due to assisted reproduction, but there were potential health problems with delaying motherhood."Seven per cent of babies are now conceived using assisted reproduction," he said."This is great news for mums who might not have had a baby otherwise. I certainly had my child late but not because of holding off due to my career, I just didn't meet the right person at the right time. Lise Taylor, mother at 41. "Pregnancy is more complicated when women have a child at ages 40-44, especially when it is their first child."They bring some advantages as well - greater life experience and financial security. But in terms of their pregnancy, it is lot more difficult for both mother and baby."He said a lot of the health problems women experienced in pregnancy went hand-in-hand with the growing epidemic of obesity in the community. "If you add the two together, then y...

Cost of camera gives an unfair advantage

WINNER: Michel Nichols receives his prize from the Duchess of Cambridge Comments (0) MICHAEL Nichols has taken some absolutely astounding pictures for National Geographic magazine over the years and is without doubt an artist at the zenith, and whilst his winning entry in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year is a laudable chef d'oeuvre, yet I cannot help thinking that the standard he has set creates an unrealistic goal for those of us who aspire to emulate or compete with his creations. Why? Well, although a magnificent cooker is not a prerequisite for a culinary masterpiece you will probably get better results than someone cooking on a camp fire. A quick glance at his biography and list of equipment reveals he has no less than 21 Canon lenses with a combined price tag of £35,000 and a number of Canon camera bodies including the two top of the range models which of just those two alone have a price tag of over £6,000. The competition was open to all and there were 40,000 entries. Are some competitions unfair? You be the judge! ALLAN JONES Plymouth ...  

Science chief warns on acid oceans

Some corals are unlikely to last out the century The UK's chief scientist says the oceans face a serious and growing risk from man-made carbon emissions. The oceans absorb about a third of the CO2 that’s being produced by industrial society, and this is changing the chemistry of seawater. Sir Mark Walport warns that the acidity of the oceans has increased by about 25% since the industrial revolution, mainly thanks to manmade emissions. CO2 reacts with the sea water to form carbonic acid. He told BBC News: “If we carry on emitting CO2 at the same rate, ocean acidification will create substantial risks to complex marine food webs and ecosystems.” He said the current rate of acidification is believed to be unprecedented within the last 65 million years – and may threaten fisheries in future. The consequences of acidification are likely to be made worse by the warming of the ocean expected with climate change, a process which is also driven by CO2. Sir Mark’s comments come as recent British research suggests the effects of acidification may be even more pervasive than previously estimated. Until now studies have identified species with calcium-based shells as most in danger from changing chemistry. But researchers in Exeter have found that other creatures will also be affected because as acidity increases it creates conditions for animals to take up more coastal pollutants like copper.

Money & Politics: Ad wars heat up governor campaign

MADISON — Like them or not — and most people don’t — television ads are a mainstay of modern political campaigns. They arguably matter more than debates, websites and media coverage.A cynic might say that explains a lot.But political ads do help define issues and provide useful information about candidates. In Wisconsin, they are central to the battle between Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke over the roughly 4 percent of the electorate that is still undecided.Walker’s message is that he is taking Wisconsin forward while Burke would drag it backwards. Burke’s message is that Walker has done a lousy job and she can do better.The Walker and Burke campaigns have each released about a dozen ads since the Aug. 12 primary, according to the archive AdWatch on WisPolitics.com. Outside groups have generated about half as many.The national nonprofit Center for Public Integrity is tracking how many ads ran and at what cost. The group’s State Ad Wars Tracker, updated weekly, tallies broadcast and national cable TV political ad buys — even the otherwise unreported “issue ads” that don’t expressly call for a candidate’s election or defeat. It only counts ads that have already aired.Through Oct. 13, the tracker estimated, more than 38,000 ads had aired in the Wisconsin governor’s race, at a cost of $12.7 million. The Walker campaign spent $4.9 million on ads compared t...

We worked with both digital cameras and traditional black-and-white film.”“The warm tones coupled with the warmth of the people I encountered inspired me to take on a much more personal and candid approach to my photography, which has received fantastic feedback,” he added.The son of Andrew Trevino and Cynthia Mose-Trevino, of Gary, Trevino is a senior at CMA and enjoys working as yearbook editor-in-chief. He serves as wrestling team captain, and is a two-time IHSAA Sectional champion and three-time IHSAA Semi-State qualifier.The teen plans to study in the United Kingdom before enrolling in college to study architecture or civil engineering. “I am a creative individual and I knew that if I went into a ...

Foothill tennis roundup: Valencia beats Hart takes title

In a nearly identical match to the one the two teams played just over two weeks ago, the Valencia Vikings edged the Hart Indians 10-8 and clinched the 2014 Foothill League girls tennis title outright on their home court. The Vikings (18-0, 10-0) were victorious in all nine doubles matches and the Indians (13-3, 8-2) in all but one singles, where Vikings freshman Jennifer Shin once again picked up Valencia’s lone win. “My seniors wanted this one so bad,” said Valencia head coach Annie Kellogg. “Not just one, but both wins over Hart.” Valencia’s vaunted doubles teams were sensational on Thursday, with the No. 1 duo of Tina Inchalik and Remy Balmain leading the way with wins of 6-2, 6-0 and 6-0. “This was absolutely huge for us,” Inchalik said. “This is what we’ve been training for since they beat us last year.” The No. 2 doubles team of Kate Zeile and Katelyn Choi won 6-4, 6-0, 6-0 and the No. 3 of Lauren Wolf and Gianna Benitez won 6-1, 6-2, before clinching the match with a 7-6 win over Hart’s No.1 of Sheridan Mott and Madi Ladanyi. A Hart victory would have led to an overall games won tie-breaker and the Indians would have won the match. Hart’s No. 1 and 2 were untouchable in singles play, as Proyfon Lohaphaisan and Natalia Munoz each swept without dropping a single game. Freshman Nicole Alvarez was also strong, winning 6-0 over Valencia No. 3 Christina Fletcher and 6-2 over No. 2 Sabr...

What other sports did you play before then?I was a pretty good swimmer and swam competitively for Lakeside Club up to the fifth grade, but there were other sports I enjoyed more. I played basketball in middle school. One of our basketball coaches then was also a volleyball coach and he knew I was going to focus on volleyball.What made you decide to stick with volleyball?It’s the first sport I’ve really had fun playing. I’ve never dreaded going to practice.How do you like having a sister and cousin playing with you?I like having a closer bond with them. I play outside hitter on the left side and Ryan (she’s a left-hander) plays on the right side. A lot of people in our family play volleyball, including my Dad and his brother.
