Cesarean delivery may lead to increased risk of obesity among offspring

first_imgIndividuals born by cesarean delivery were 15 percent more likely to become obese as children than individuals born by vaginal birth—and the increased risk may persist through adulthood, according to a large new study from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. In addition, individuals born via cesarean delivery were 64 percent more likely to be obese than their siblings born by vaginal birth.The study will be published online September 6, 2016 in JAMA Pediatrics.The researchers also found that individuals born via vaginal birth among women who had undergone a previous cesarean delivery were 31% less likely to become obese compared with those born via cesarean birth following a cesarean birth.“Cesarean deliveries are without a doubt a necessary and lifesaving procedure in many cases,” said Jorge Chavarro, associate professor of nutrition and epidemiology at Harvard Chan School and senior author of the study. “But cesareans also have some known risks to the mother and the newborn. Our findings show that risk of obesity in the offspring could another factor to consider.”Nearly 1.3 million cesareans are performed each year in the U.S., accounting for one third of all deliveries. While a number of previous studies have suggested a link between cesarean delivery and a higher risk of obesity in offspring, the studies were either too small to detect a clear association or lacked detailed data.

The women’s view

first_imgCitizenship brings a range of rights and responsibilities in countries all over the world. But in many nations, according to Radcliffe Dean Lizabeth Cohen, “the link between gender and rights is hardly a settled issue.”Cohen’s remarks opened “Who Belongs: Global Citizenship and Gender in the 21st Century” on April 6. The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study’s annual gender conference touched on topics ranging from the hijab to the history of citizenship in America to the rise in nationalism in the U.S. and abroad, and worrying trends of intolerance and exclusion.In a morning discussion titled “Rights, Duties, and Responsibilities,” moderator and Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne ’73 voiced a common sentiment among the panelists, lamenting that the “We” that begins the U.S. Constitution is rarely heard in today’s contentious social discourse.In the wake of the 2016 election, pundits and politicians have argued the heightened political polarization in the U.S. reflects an “us versus them” mentality that then-candidate Donald Trump seized on during the presidential campaign. A year later Trump issued a series of executive orders banning travel to the U.S. from a range of Muslim-majority countries, leaving many with families and deep ties to jobs and schools in America stranded outside its borders.Additional directives have further eroded procedural protections for asylum seekers, said Boston College Law School Professor Kari Hong, separating children from parents, allowing agents to deport asylum seekers without a hearing or appeal, and punishing immigration judges who don’t close 700 immigration cases a year. Hiring more asylum officers, ending detention for asylum seekers, and ensuring they receive legal protections could go far in improving the system, she said.Hong added that while Trump “is using detention to weaponize misery,” his actions are no different from those of previous presidents, including Barack Obama.“All of these practices are worthy of alarm and are worthy of criticism, but I want to highlight that the Trump administration is doing nothing new that prior administrations, including and especially the Obama administration, have not done,” she said. “Even the most shocking example of separating mothers from their children is only different in degree, not in kind from the past 20 years.”Conversation non-startersIn what will come as no surprise to many women, Princeton University Professor Tali Mendelberg called public speech a domain of “highly gendered authority,” where men typically take the lead and often talk over or interrupt their female counterparts. Even high-ranking women in a room full of men can find it hard to break into the conversation, said Mendelberg. She cited former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who in her memoir acknowledged keeping quiet in meetings early in her career for fear of sounding unintelligent, only to later hear a man praised for the same idea.As tough and talented as she was, said Mendelberg, even Albright “found herself tongue-tied.” She said the problem reflects gender imbalances in and outside of the workplace, and the solution requires “recruiting more women into positions of power” and encouraging more self-awareness in men.According to Mendelberg, numbers are key. Her research into the dynamics of group dialogue suggests women are treated the same as men when they comprise a supermajority of a group, not the 30 percent that had been noted in previous studies. “Even 30 or 40 percent still leaves women in a distinct minority,” said Mendelberg, adding that decisions made by majority rule mean “the majority identity group” sets the tone and determines who gets respect.,Borders, Belonging, BoundariesSamantha Power, J.D. ’99, former U.N. Ambassador and Anna Lindh Professor of the Practice of Global Leadership and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School, turned her international eye on the U.S. as moderator of a morning panel dedicated to borders, belonging, and boundaries, noting that what it means to be American is increasingly “up for grabs.” Many of those currently in positions of power, she said, are “shrinking the concept of Americanness and elevating very specific groups of Americans to a kind of privileged, almost normative status.”Offering an international perspective on belonging, Sarah Leah Whitson, executive director for the Middle East and North Africa division of Human Rights Watch, said that in Saudi Arabia, leaders have promised series of reforms in recent months that include allowing women to drive, attend sporting events, and apply for jobs that had been reserved for men. So far, however, substantial change has yet to materialize, Whitson said, noting that “the circumstances that led to the government prioritizing these reforms didn’t happen overnight.”Saudi women activists have been fighting for years to change the regressive system, despite retribution that could include long jail sentences. Whitson pointed to a number of effective collaborations between activists and Human Rights Watch, including social media campaigns, informational videos, and influential reports in which Saudi women described how the restrictive guardianship system, which gives men extensive authority over women, was “ruining their lives.”Lahiri on identityAn author whose work focuses on notions of home, belonging, culture, identity and conformity took part in the afternoon keynote conversation with author and Harvard alumnae Celeste Ng ’02.Jhumpa Lahiri, whose “Interpreter of Maladies” won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2000, began by reading her story “The Boundary,” a short piece published in January in The New Yorker. The narrative follows a young girl whose immigrant family takes care of a holiday home rented by vacation guests from out of town. It’s a tale of cultures and class, and an example of crafting a narrative in another language. Lahiri, who lives in Rome, wrote the story first in Italian, then translated it into English.During a conversation with Ng, Lahiri, who teaches creative writing at Princeton, said she and her family moved to the U.S. from India in 1969, benefitting from President Richard Nixon’s expanded immigration policies. Her parents impressed on her “that weird sense of gratitude that the doors opened for you.”But Lahiri never cultivated any particular identity for herself, neither Italian, American, or Indian. She called that lack of identity central to her craft, telling Ng that avoiding a precise identity is crucial for a writer “because it is that vacillating formless state, in which we can shape-shift into anything or anyone at any time or any place, that allows you to create, to create characters, and to create a world that isn’t yours and to think your way, feel your way, understand your way to other hearts, other souls.”“Once I became a writer, that stateless state of being became my instrument,” she said. “It’s my only instrument, and I think that is something that I very carefully cultivate at this point because I know that that is the only instrument that allows me to work.”last_img read more

first_imgA judge has called a halt to a Donegal “tradition” after hearing Gardai and the public were being put at risk as a result.Donegal drinkers will be left thirsty on Christmas night!Nightclubs across Donegal have traditionally opened at one minute past midnight on December 26th to allow Christmas revellers celebrate the festive season, Letterkenny court heard. But now a Judge has ended the tradition after Garda objections heard the custom led to fighting and all sorts of other problems.Garda Supt Eugene McGovern told the court that one Garda was still off work after receiving injuries last year.Solicitors sought five special exemption orders for bar licenses at Letterkenny District Court yesterday.The applications were made on behalf of Jackson’s Hotel, Ballybofey, Patsy Dan’s club, Dunfanaghy, the Fleet’s Inn, Downings, Simpsons Club, Carndonagh, and The Bailey, RecastleSupt McGovern said “This doesn’t relate to any of these premises but last Christmas two of my officers were very seriously assaulted, one of whom still hasn’t been able to return to work,” he told Judge Paul Kelly.The senior Garda said he hadn’t objected to the license applications last year because Christmas had happened on a weekend.He added that fast food outlets had planned to open until 4am to serve the crowds expected at the clubs.“Our experience is that the patrons drink in the queues before the opening.“And then there is an ongoing issue with local people due to noise.“Fortunately in most areas of the country clubs don’t open on Christmas night. There is a history of opening here in Donegal.”Judge Paul Kelly said the evidence spoke for itself and said alcohol was the core factor for 95% of public order cases before him.“Supt McGovern and Sgt Lynch have given evidence of their concerns which are well founded and grounded in public safety,” said the judge.“They went out of the way to compliment the premises concerned. However on a daily basis in courts here we deal with a substantial number of public order offences and possibly 95% of them arise out of excessive consumption of alcohol.“The case are sadly always the same; a crowd spills onto the street, rows start and public order offences take place and in often injuries arise, sometimes bad injuries.”He refused the license applications in all cases.JUDGE CALLS LAST ORDERS ON DONEGAL CHRISTMAS NIGHT OPENING was last modified: December 20th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bar licenseCHristmas nightJudge Paul KellySupt Eugene McGovernlast_img read more

Johnson expects to see classic encounter at Twickenham

first_imgMartin Johnson is expecting East Midlands rivals Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints to produce a “cracking” Premiership final and the World Cup winner believes the side that better deals with the occasion at Twickenham will emerge triumphant.Johnson, a five-time Premiership winner during his playing days with the Tigers, recalled losing in his final appearance for the club as London Wasps claimed the title despite Johnson’s men having beaten them three times during the regular season.And the former England captain and head coach points to that factor as a reason why this year’s showpiece is too tough to call.It is the ninth consecutive season the Tigers have reached the final, but it will be their only time so far against the Saints, who are appearing at this stage for the very first time.“Leicester have been in a lot of consecutive finals and Northampton a lot of semi-finals so to get those two in a final at Twickenham is going to be fantastic for the East Midlands,” said Johnson, speaking while promoting Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle, an eight-mile bike ride through London during which he will take part in a Guinness World Record attempt.“Saracens topped the league but it then gets to one-off games which I think is great because to win a European (title), or a World Cup, or Grand Slams, you have got to win those big one-off games.“Once you get to a final, as you saw last year Quins turned up and played very well and deserved to win – you have got to now produce one last big game to win it.“Neither side will want to lose to the other in that final so it should be a cracking game.“My last game was a final and we went behind and ended up getting heavily beaten by a team we had beaten three times that year so anything can happen on any given day – you have to be able to deal with it and find a way to win.”Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle will take place on an eight-mile route in central London on Saturday 3 August 2013.

9 months agoBurnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick: A massive victory

first_imgBurnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick: A massive victoryby Paul Vegas9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBurnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick felt victory over Fulham was “massive”.Hendrick, playing in an unfamiliar right midfield role, had two first half efforts deflected in off Joe Bryan and Denis Odoi to cancel out Andre Schurrle’s stunning second minute goal.“I don’t know,” said Hendrick on his prospects of being able to reverse the decision and double his goal tally after scoring against Fulham at Craven Cottage in August.“I haven’t seen it back. I tried to look at it on the screen when I was trotting back but once we got the goal today was about the three points.“It was a great goal they scored right at the start and it’s hard, especially in this league. When a team goes ahead, they seem to win or get something out of the game.“But we knew we had plenty of time and we needed to get back on the front foot and get the ball going forward and we got a few chances and luckily their defenders put it in for us.“It gave us something to go into half-time with and to cling onto.“The group of lads out there, whoever’s playing, can dig in and work for each other and that’s what we did.“It is massive. Every game is massive and to keep the momentum going the way we have been playing the last few games and the results we’ve pick up. It’s good to that keep going and hopefully we can continue that.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
