Trump Admins Pro-Women Human Rights Panel Stacked With Anti-Abortion Figures

A new Trump administration commission on human rights will be filled with anti-abortion advocates, including a former ambassador to the Holy See who declared that abortion is related to the coarsening of the social fabric. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the creation of the Commission on Unalienable Rights last week in a Amnesty International, who worried the commission would seek to limit the scope of human rights domestically and abroad. And while the State Department claims the group will not discuss abortion, the conservative makeup of the commission has reproductive rights advocates on edge. Appointing these ideologues to a commission purporting to safeguard human rights will have the opposite effect and will endanger the health and well-being of countless …

Agile data governance systems, in contrast, simplify both these workflows and the use of cutting-edge privacy tools, allowing resource-poor …

Bottles of Johnson & Johnson baby powder line a drugstore shelf in New York. (Reuters) But in recent years nearly a dozen juries have concluded that J&J knew some of its Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower products contained asbestos and did not make the information available to consumers, the report said.

Gay and trans soldiers say they were abused in South Korean military

Seoul (CNN)After months of watching the abuse, Park felt he had to act. According to Park, he and the original victim were forced to have sex with each other while other soldiers taunted them. They were then further ostracized within the unit and by their superiors for being “perverted.” The abuse continued. Eventually, they attempted to kill themselves.

The Scariest Movie Streaming On Netflix No One Is Talking About

Emily Madriga Updated July 11, 2019 Emily Madriga Updated July 11, 2019 The Blackcoat’s Daughter is the creepiest movie streaming on Netflix that no one is talking about.

Does 5G pose health risks?

These waves travel shorter distances through urban spaces, so 5G networks require more transmitter masts than previous technologies, positioned closer to ground level. Radio waves are non-ionising The radio wave band – used for mobile phone networks – is non-ionising, “which means it lacks sufficient energy to break apart DNA and cause cellular damage,” says David Robert Grimes, physicist and cancer researcher. Higher up the electromagnetic spectrum, well beyond those frequencies used by mobile phones, there are clear health risks from extended exposure. The sun’s ultra-violet rays fall within this harmful category, and can lead to skin cancers. There are strict advisory limits for exposure to even higher energy radiation levels such as medical x-rays and gamma rays, which can …

Making wearables matter: Blood pressure monitoring could be the tipping point

Greg Yap Today’s wearables are still designed for the healthy and wealthy, not those who could benefit the most. Medical wearables offer the potential to collect health data and improve health via a combination of real-time AI and expert human intervention. Apple’s announcement of FDA clearance of its Watch for screening for irregular heart rhythms was meant to be groundbreaking. But its medical value right now remains limited and controversial. What will make the promise into reality? High blood pressure, or hypertension, affects between 30-50% of adult Americans, or 75-120 million people. It’s the No. 1 risk factor in deaths worldwide, and the No. 1 modifiable risk in heart disease and stroke, the top two worldwide causes of death. Despite …
