A mamma-to-be may use a sperm bank for many reasons:
-She's a single lady
-Her partner has azoospermia (near to no detectable sperm)
-Her partner has compromised semen quality
-Her partner is unable to donate sperm due to a history of physical injury or cancer treatment
If you are considering using a sperm donor, you need to understand it from all angles.
Using a credible sperm bank has many legal and medical advantages. It can also really increase your odds of pregnancy success and having a healthy baby.
Using a sperm bank probably was never in your childhood vision of how you'd make a family, but learning more about it may allay many fears and misconceptions.
Tune in as I interview Eric Kendall of the Seattle based European Sperm Bank.
What do you need to know about the genetics of a potential egg donor or sperm donor? What type of genetic testing is available both pre and post conception? Host Dawn Davenport will talk with Dr. Harvey Stern, Director of Genetics and the Fetal Diagnostic Center at Genetics & IVF Institute, and Medical Director of Fairfax Cryobank and of GIVF’s Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) program. He also supervises genetic screening for GIVF’s egg donors and for Fairfax Cryobank’s sperm donors.
Dr. Lee Silver, a molecular biology professor at Princeton; author of over 200 research articles on genetics and computational modeling, as well as two of the leading academic genetic textbooks; and he is the founder and Chief Science Advisor at Genepeeks.

'Competition'...what is it, really...and what else is now possible?
We've all been raised within a society that glorifies competition in all its forms: from 'survival of the fittest' to 'Survivor' and everything in between. Whether we're talking about sports or 'getting a leg up' in the business world...'competition' has been a standard theme throughout the Ages. It has elicited corporate secrecy and separation between nations. It has fostered judgement and ill-will between atheltes, artists, businessmen and politicians alike.
However, as this massive Shift of Consciousness progresses at a tremendous rate, for those who are at the leading edge, the old standard of 'competition' is now losing its allure. We begin to realize that within the paradigm of 'competition' is a built-in structure of 'excellence'...and that 'excellence' has the potential to benefit ALL.
When approached wisely, 'competition' can inspire greatness. It can inspire innovation, invention and personal expansion. It can inspire solutions to age-old problems and elicit feats of glory from athletes. When used as a catalyst for excellence, competition can propel us into a future of collective greatness.
What possibilities and potentials do YOU see within the realm of 'competition'?
Dr. Linda Tucker
In Today’s teaching, we are examining the Spirit of competition:
Case #1: You call someone to tell them about your vision; they don’t have time to listen. You ask them to be a guest on your radio show, which only requires 15 to 30 minutes of their time and they tell you they are quite busy with a full schedule, and will get back with you. A few weeks later, you tell them about a jazz festival featuring Prince and they tell you “I will be there? Are you ready?
Competition is part of the human spirit and is a vital aspect of all of our lives. Whether in business, sport, politics, entertainment, and industry—you name it—competition drives motivation and innovation.
As Andrew Carnegie said, “…while the law of competition may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department.”
While it’s important to never lose sight of your competitors so you can react positively if they begin to out-develop you, it’s equally important to watch what they do wrong. They will undoubtedly make mistakes, so learn from them and act accordingly.
Competition makes you want to be on top; to be first; to be the leader. You persevere until you get to that exalted position. If you’re toppled from your perch (for whatever reason) your inner life force tells you to start all over again until you get back on top. That’s the nature of someone like me who is competitive. You have no choice. It defines your very being.

~~Dr. Jesse Bemley developed the High School Computer competition (HSCC) program in 1986. Dr. Bemley instituted the conference proceedings and spearheaded the effort to get BDPA accepted as a constituent society of the Institute for Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP). Dr. Bemley noted the large number of minority students who had little or no computer literacy skills. With the ever-growing need to possess basic computer skills in the current job market, Dr. Bemley realized that in the future, individuals without these skills would be left with no employment opportunities. Dr. Bemley has worked since the early 1980s to get students, especially from high school, involved in national and international computing and engineering conferences, meetings, conferences, symposia, etc both in the US and abroad. He has written numerous articles on computer topics. The purpose of this scholarship fund program is to serve as the vehicle for the BDPA organization to increase the interest of minority youth in IT and to help facilitate the emergence of minorities into the industry.
Chapters are invited to bring one team of students to compete in the HSCC at the National Conference event. The top five winning teams win Jesse Bemley scholarships.
Dr. Bemley is in the BDPA Hall of Fame. He founded both the national high school computer competition and the IT Showcase. He is an inspiration to African American IT professionals from the 'classroom to the boardroom'.
