Washington (CNN)"But that's when I'll be ovulating," I protest. It's the fall of 2017 and my husband, Fernando, has just told me he has to go overseas for a few days. The United States Army is really messing with my plan to get pregnant. We've just learned he's likely to deploy very soon and it's always possible the deployment could be extended, so we've decide to accelerate our timeline to try for a baby. Now, this trip is cutting into the already limited time we have before he deploys. And making a child is not something we can do when we're on opposite sides of the world. Unless. "What if we freeze your sperm?" I suggest. Read More He looks at me funny, but I'm serious. I'm 37. The clock is ticking. And if he can't physically be here to make this happen, then we'll just have to find a workaround. It's moments like this one that explain why time away from loved ones is the top concern of military families, according to the latest Blue Star Families' annual Military Family … [Read more...] about Planning a family around a war
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Already known for outrageously high rents, the monthly rent in San Francisco has just hit a whole new level. According to the latest report from rental website Zumper, the median rent for a one bedroom has reached $3,690, up from $3,580 in January and breaking the previous record of $3,650 set last September. San Francisco’s median, the highest in the nation, is about 30 percent higher for a one bedroom in New York City, and more than double the rent in Miami. • ALSO READ: Some Bay Area Communities Centuries Away From Meeting Housing Goals The rental website noted that rents were rising before several tech companies are expected to file IPOs this year. “Though there may be a ton of cash flowing through the city and surrounding areas soon, many of these workers will not immediately invest in a home and may, instead, take their money to both travel and upgrade their rental situation,” the website said. Elsewhere in the Bay Area, San … [Read more...] about Median 1-Bedroom Rent In San Francisco Soars To Nearly $3,700 A Month
“Hip-hop music is the first art form created by free black men. And no black man has taken advantage of his freedom more than Kanye West.” Chris Rock’s already-infamous proclamation regarding Kanye West, Black art and history seems like a de facto slogan for both the Wyoming-based excursion that West hosted for various “tastemakers” as part of the rollout for his new album Ye, and for the month or so of bizarre controversies that Kanye instigated preceding the album’s release. The line could be interpreted as deifying of West. It’s truer, however, that Kanye has exploited the idea of not being ensnared to his own advantage. Kanye invited a collective of media, celebrities, artists and others to the remote Wyomingness of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, for the debut of his latest project. Notables like the aforementioned Rock, Nas, Jonah Hill, 2 Chainz, Kim Kardashian, the far-right troll Candace Owens and others settled into the rustic locale … [Read more...] about Kanye West’s New Album ‘Ye’ Is a Colossal Letdown
Story highlights An estimated 100 trillion microbes make up your microbiome Researchers are studying the Yanomami tribe to explore how gut bacteria have evolved (CNN)You've probably heard that expression "you are what you eat." There's a lot more truth to it than you may think, due to the 100 trillion microbes that make up your microbiome: a combination of fungi, bacteria and viruses that resides in your gut, primarily in the large intestine. Researchers estimate the total surface area of the human gut at 3,000 square feet -- larger than a tennis court -- with the number of microbes in it outnumbering human cells 10 to one. Though words like "bacteria" and "fungi" might commonly be associated with infections or disease, the ones found in the microbiome are the peacekeepers of your body, helping digest food, fight disease and regulate the immune system. Today, researchers at the Center for Microbiome Innovation at the University of California, San Diego are trying to map and … [Read more...] about From ancient tribes to modern civilization, what do our microbiomes say about us?
