Women's issues are taking center stage in the lead-up to 2016. As they should: The conservative war on women's health and reproductive rights has raged on for far too long. And in all measures of social and political inequality, we remain what number-crunchers coolly term "disproportionately affected."Many people believe that electing a woman...



Planned Parenthood goes to court to fight funding cuts in Alabama
29 Aug 2015 at 9:08am

By Letitia Stein (Reuters) - (This 28 August 2015 story was refiled to add the dropped word "court" in the first paragraph) Planned Parenthood filed a complaint in Alabama federal court on Friday seeking to stop the state from defunding its health clinics after the release of covertly recorded videos attacking the organization's handling of aborted fetal tissue. The reproductive-health organization took similar legal action earlier this week in Louisiana, which also plans to terminate its contract with Planned Parenthood to provide medical services to low-income residents. Planned Parenthood, joined in the suit by the American Civil Liberties Union, said in court filings that Alabama's Republican governor illegally terminated its contract to provide health services under Medicaid, a federal and state healthcare program for the poor.

"We were extremely concerned when we learned of the hospital admission of athlete Erik Heil," organizers said in a statement sent to Reuters.

European heart experts okay longer use of blood thinners
29 Aug 2015 at 6:27am
European heart experts on Saturday endorsed the potential use of multiple blood thinning drugs for heart attack patients beyond one year, in a move that may boost demand for AstraZeneca's Brilinta. New European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines state for the first time that use of so-called P2Y12 inhibitors in addition to aspirin beyond one year "may be considered after careful assessment of the ischaemic and bleeding risks of the patient". The move follows an assessment of two large clinical trials, known as PEGASUS and DAPT, showing that prolonged dual drug treatment can reduce the risk of repeat heart attacks or strokes in patients with previous heart problems.

28 Aug 2015 at 2:26pm
By Janice Neumann (Reuters Health) - Workplaces that encourage healthy lifestyle practices are tied to fewer obese employees among millennials, according to a new study. About 17 percent of young employees in workplaces that encouraged several healthy lifestyle practices were obese, compared to about 24 percent in spaces that promoted one or no healthy practices, researchers found. ?I have personally experienced a range of workplace environments that I feel have influenced my eating habits and my physical activity, both positively and negatively," said lead author Allison Watts, of the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

Caffeine may chip a couple strokes off golf score
28 Aug 2015 at 1:00pm

Professional golfers may walk up to five miles over four hours for a round of golf, which is physical activity, though not intense exercise, said senior author Dr. Kaelin C. Young of the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine, also on the Auburn campus. A golf tournament involves physical and mental fatigue, Young said. The researchers studied 12 male golfers with a handicap of three to 18 as they played an 18-hole round of golf on two consecutive days for a 36-hole tournament.

28 Aug 2015 at 10:14am

By Nick Mulvenney BEIJING (Reuters) - Dutch flier Dafne Schippers completed her transformation from heptathlete to world champion sprinter when she ran the fourth fastest 200 meters of all time to win by a nose at the Bird's Nest on Friday. The 23-year-old European champion clocked 21.63 seconds to beat Jamaica's Elaine Thompson by three-hundredths of a second and add gold to the silver medal she won in the 100m behind Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce on Monday. Only Americans Florence Griffith-Joyner, the world record holder, and Marion Jones, who was later banned for doping, have run faster.


Taking My Own Advice
28 Aug 2015 at 10:07am
A human being is a part of the whole called by us, the "Universe" -- a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest -- a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a...
