Ectopic Pregnancy - Higher Incidence With IVF and Frozen Embryos Wow, I was astounded to read this article about how frozen embryos increase the chance of ectopic pregnancy. I had two ectopics, which both were the result of IVF. Statistically, there is a higher risk of ectopic with IVF, but frozen embryos have a 17 times greater risk! If ectopic pregnancies rupture, it can be life threatening.

How this debut YA novel about the ’92 LA riots suddenly feels so timely

When Christina Hammonds Reed delivered the final draft of “The Black Kids,” it was December 2019 and her novel about a Black teenager coming of age during the 1992 Los Angeles riots felt rooted in that time and place. Half a year later, as “The Black Kids” arrives on Tuesday, Aug. 4, it feels prescient in its portrayal not only of the crisis of police violence against Black Americans but also how we understand it against the backdrop of history. “It’s very, very surreal,” Hammonds Reed says of t...

James Baldwin Talks About Racism in America & Civil Rights Activism on The Dick Cavett Show (1969)

There are many reasons, some quite literal, that it can be painful to talk about racism in the U.S. For one thing, it often seems that writers like W.E.B. Du Bois, Ida B. Wells, Angela Davis, Audre Lorde, or James Baldwin, have already confronted questions of racial violence without hedging or equivocation. Yet each time racist violence happens, there seems to be a decorous need in politics and media to pretend to be surprised by what's right in front of us, to pretend to have discovered...

ByteDance is looking outside of the US for its new TikTok headquarters

The viral video-sharing app TikTok is currently facing a potential ban in the US over national-security risks due to its ties to China through its parent company, ByteDance.

Zamrock: An Introduction to Zambia’s 1970s Rich & Psychedelic Rock Scene

The story of popular music in the late 20th century is never complete without an account of the explosive psychedelic rock, funk, Afrobeat, and other hybrid styles that proliferated on the African continent and across Latin American and the Caribbean in the 1960s and 70s. It’s only lately, however, that large audiences are discovering how much pioneering music came out of Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, and other postcolonial countries, thanks to UK labels like Strut and Soundway (named by The Gu...

In Africa, stigma surrounding coronavirus hinders response

After 23 days in quarantine in Uganda — far longer than required — Jimmy Spire Ssentongo walked free in part because of a cartoon he drew. It showed a bound prisoner begging for liberation after multiple negative tests, while a health minister demanded to know where he was hiding the virus. “The impression was that we were a dangerous group and that what was necessary was to protect the rest of society from us,” said Ssentongo, a cartoonist for Uganda's Observer newspaper who was put in quaran...

'For someone from Syria, the authoritarianism is vivid in Britain'

Hassan Akkad fled Damascus after he was tortured by Assad’s regime. But nothing prepared him for his job as a cleaner on a Covid-19 ward in London… There have been times in the past 10 years, Hassan Akkad says, that his life has felt more like a movie.

Britain might look to Germany to heal the north-south divide | Torsten Bell

What happened after the fall of the Berlin Wall involved money, and lots of itBefore the government was forced into locking down British regions, it wanted to level them up, closing productivity gaps between north and south. That’s a valuable objective, reinforced by new research on UK regional inequality from academics appropriately spread across Sheffield, Birmingham and London. The paper reminds us that the UK has some of the biggest productivity gaps between regions in the developed world, w...

Ibiza: between economic distress and unprecedented calm

Riots are good for rioters and this president

When we read someone the Riot Act, we do so metaphorically, attempting to calm them down by reminding them that somewhere there exists legal language that would punish their unruly behavior if they don’t stop it right this sec. But in his book “Riot. Strike. Riot.: The New Era of Uprisings,” UC Davis poet and provocateur Joshua Clover reminds us that there is an actual Riot Act, enacted in Britain in 1714 by King George I in the wake of “the Coronation Riots attending his ascension.” And we Yank...

Britain unlikely to use Russia's 'untrustworthy' Covid vaccine

Britain would be likely to reject a potentially game-changing coronavirus vaccine from Russia amid strong reservations about the trial process there, the Telegraph can reveal. That approach chimes with the US, where Anthony Fauci, America’s top infectious disease official, raised doubts about the testing regimes for potential vaccines in both Russia and China. There are strict international protocols governing the development of new drugs. Russia has claimed it is close to rolling out the world’...

Chinese nuclear power plant near Battle of Britain tribute 'insensitive to war dead'

The Chinese takeover of a nuclear power station near a tribute to Battle of Britain pilots is “insensitive” to their memory, it has been claimed. China General Nuclear (CGN) and EDF want to build the Bradwell B site in Essex, covering around 500 hectares and producing enough electricity to power around four million homes. CGN is the largest constructor of nuclear power stations in the world and would hold a 66.5 per cent majority share in the project, which would take up to 12 years to complete....

Were Hiroshima and Nagasaki War Crimes? It’s Not so Simple.

This Thursday, August 6, will mark the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, an event that would lead to Japan’s surrender and the end of World War II, a global conflagration which, over six blood-filled years, had cost 75 million lives and inflicted untold misery and devastation on millions more. At the time, the news of the nuclear weapons that demolished Hiroshima, and three days later Nagasaki, was greeted with enthusiasm by an American public that felt vindicated in its war against ...
