Rusted Root - Send Me On My Way

Anthony Lake: How Child Stunting Can Be Stopped Suppose I asked you to imagine a courtroom in which a stern judge peers with indifference at a baby — and off-handedly condemns the infant either to death or a life shorter than her peers, with poorer cognitive capacity, more likelihood of disease and less ability to learn at school and earn as an adult. Of course, you would say this is unimaginable. What judge, or human being, would do such a thing? But this is what is happening to an estimated 180 million children under the age of 5, children whose bodies and minds are limited by stunting. Stunting, or stunted growth, is the result of chronic nutritional deficiencies. (MORE: Somalia: A Famine We Made?) But if you haven’t heard of it, you’re not alone. Stunting is so common in some areas that it is sometimes mistaken for a genetic heritage, rather than a preventable condition. How can a community, a nation or a continent ever hope to develop to its full capacity if its children cannot?

The Science Creative Quarterly & A DIALOGUE WITH SARAH, AGED 3: IN WHICH IT IS SHOWN THAT IF YOUR DAD IS A CHEMISTRY PROFESSOR, ASKING “WHY” CAN BE DANGEROUS - StumbleUpon SARAH: Daddy, were you in the shower? DAD: Yes, I was in the shower. SARAH: Why? DAD: I was dirty. DAD: Why does the shower get me clean? SARAH: Yes. DAD: Because the water washes the dirt away when I use soap. DAD: Why do I use soap? DAD: Because the soap grabs the dirt and lets the water wash it off. DAD: Why does the soap grab the dirt? DAD: Because soap is a surfactant. DAD: Why is soap a surfactant? DAD: That is an EXCELLENT question. DAD: Why does soap form micelles? DAD: Soap molecules are long chains with a polar, hydrophilic head and a non-polar, hydrophobic tail. SARAH: Aidrofawwic DAD: And can you say ‘hydrophobic’? DAD: Excellent! DAD: Why does it mean that? DAD: It’s Greek! SARAH: Like a monster? DAD: You mean, like being afraid of a monster? DAD: A scary monster, sure. (pause) SARAH: (rolls her eyes) I thought we were talking about soap. DAD: We are talking about soap. (longish pause) DAD: Why do the molecules have a hydrophilic head and a hydrophobic tail? DAD: That’s complicated.

Eliminating this protein has given many athletes a - 11.07.11 Alessio Fasano has been an even busier man since he and 15 colleagues published a study in the journal BMC Medicine last March that showed it was possible to be sensitive to gluten—a protein in wheat, barley and rye, as well as in some soup and sauce thickeners—without having full-blown celiac disease. Athletes from around the world have contacted Fasano, the head of the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research, for advice on how to limit their gluten intake. Pro cyclists had been seeking Fasano's help since 2008; now he makes three annual trips to Europe to consult with elite athletes in tennis, basketball, soccer, wrestling and swimming. More and more athletes credit going gluten-free with boosting their energy. While gluten can be a fine source of protein for most people, Fasano's research reveals that 6% of the U.S. population may be gluten sensitive, experiencing stomach pains, headaches or depression after ingesting the protein.

Susan G. Komen Planned Parenthood funding decision sparks donation spike, strong reactions The organization had raised more than $400,000 from more than 6,000 online donors as of Wednesday afternoon, compared with the 100 to 200 donations it receives on an average day, said Tait Sye, a spokesman for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. He said donations were still coming in. The group also launched a Breast Health Emergency Fund to ensure funding to affiliates that will lose their Komen grants. That fund received a $250,000 gift from the family foundation of Dallas philanthropist Lee Fikes and his wife, Amy. “People respond powerfully when they see politics interfering with women’s health,” Sye said. “That’s why we’ve seen a tremendous outpouring of support.” Komen officials told the Associated Press on Tuesday that they had decided to stop funding Planned Parenthood, saying a new national policy barred support for organizations under government investigation. In the aftermath of the Susan G. Yoest has run Americans United for Life for three years.
