  • Reducing Infant Mortality in the United States

    in Health

    DR. FORD HAS A CONFLICT.  WE ARE WORKING TO REBOOK THIS FOR NEXT WEEK.  SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. - JOYCE AND ROBIN


    What can we do to lower the incidence of infant deaths? Joyce and Robin speak with Dr. Robert Ford, a retired obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) from West Memphis, Arkansas, now living in Memphis, Tennessee. Dr. Ford shares his insights into this problem, which is highest in the Southern states.


    Unfortunately, about 24,000 infants died in the United States in 2011. The loss of a baby remains a sad reality for many families and takes a serious toll on the health and well-being of families, as well as the nation.


    The death of a baby before his or her first birthday is called infant mortality. The infant mortality rate is an estimate of the number of infant deaths for every 1,000 live births. This rate is often used as an indicator to measure the health and well-being of a nation, because factors affecting the health of entire populations can also impact the mortality rate of infants. There are obvious differences in infant mortality by age, race, and ethnicity; for instance, the mortality rate for non-Hispanic black infants is more than twice that of non-Hispanic white infants.


    What are the Causes?


    Fortunately, most newborns grow and thrive. However, for every 1,000 babies that are born, six die during their first year.1 Most of these babies die because they are—



    Born with a serious birth defect.
    Born too small and too early (i.e., preterm birth; birth before 37 weeks gestation).
    Victims of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
    Affected by maternal complications of pregnancy.
    Victims of injuries (e.g., suffocation).


    These top five leading causes of infant mortality together account for 58% of all infant deaths in the United States in 2011.

    Erica Turner Master Cosmetologist

    in Entertainment

    My name is Erica Turner, Master Cosmetologist, Entrepreneur, and owner of Hair Artistry Product Line. Having started my career six years ago i've had the honour of working with some of the greastest in this industry from Barbara Edmonds, Lachelle Wise, and James Mack just to name a few. Before there was beauty school for me I always braided being that I had three girls I chose to keep their hair braided. At the age of 22 I decided to attend Beauty College of America located in Forest Park, GA because I was interested in what else I could actually do. I really susprised myself because I immediately caught on so fast. I was always taking time out to study, I stayed attending hair shows then I had oppurtuinties to work Bronner Brothers show twice here in Atlanta which were great experiences for me. Being behind the chair and clients constantly asking what products could they use thats good, I began to find myself interested in more product knowledge and formulation of products. So I wanted to formulate something that would treat my clients hair on a professional level but at a resonable price. I began mixing an playing around with products in my kitchen then decided to get with a chemisty to formulate exactly what I was looking for and two years later we have Hair Artistry.

    Welcome DeRoyale To The NTUNED Afternoon Mix-Up

    in Indie Music

    DeRoyale has mastered the recipe for success, with every component necessary to be instantly thrust among the elite in his craft. Charisma he’s got it, stage presence he’s got it, lyrics he’s got it, hard work ethic he’s got it, that competitive killer instinct he’s got it!


    Musical torture in the name of radio play and club bangin’ anthems free of all creativity and soul is what we as true fans of hip-hop/rap have been subjected to in this modern era. Today’s music lacks cultural diversity, originality and passion. It seems the idea of an actual artist has all but been terminated. The constant stream of one-hit wonders and copy-cat performers hijacking the beats and themes of their fellow “artists” leaves the real admirers of goodmusic, and I’m not referring to the record label, finding few if any representatives of this dying art-form. Angelo Rohra aka De Royalestrives to be the voice of a lost generation hoping to find creativity and raw emotion in their ear buds once again. Emerging from a unique background a young artist born in the USA and bred through an exceptional set of circumstances and personal triumphs arrives.


    Since the age of 5 his love for music was apparent. While other children his age focused their attentions on everyday life he found himself listening to the sounds of the world around him. A true musician he carries the distinction of being well versed in multiple instruments, including: the piano, bass and electric guitar. He has always had an excellent support system composed of a close knit group of family and friends. Blessed with a loving mother, father and older brothers he values their love above all else. Even with their love and support his life was not without its own struggles.

    UGP #408 Measure Twice, Cut Once

    in Politics Conservative

    in combat we were taught that making command decisions are critical...often giving a bad order is better than giving no order at all...action in our political arena is required...but is any choice better than making a studied and concise one at this time?

    8-28-2015 -George H W Bush (and Family) - One Evil Son Of A Bitch

    in Politics

    What is interesting about the history of the Bush family are the connections; Avril Harriman, Allen Dulles, the Rockefellers (the start of the oil connection), James Baker III, Gulf Oil, Pennzoil, Osama bin Laden…on and on it goes. 


    Forget ‘Dynasty’, although maybe they got the idea for the programme from the Bush posse. Staggering, is all I can say about the Bush family saga. Yet actually it’s par for the course as they say and not at all exceptional in the annals of the US power elite. The history of US capitalism is made up of family dynasties of one kind or another, from the robber barons of the Du Ponts, Mellons, Morgans, Rockefellers and, Carnegies , through to the newcomers like Enron, Worldcom, Halliburton, Bechtel, Harken, Carlyle and so forth. And, like the landed aristocracies of England, they marry into each other’s families, go to the same schools and universities, sit on each other’s corporate boards and invest in each other’s business dealings. Importantly, they watch each other’s backs and for obvious reasons.


    And in any case, the critical issue is not so much the individual goings-on of these ne’er do wells, but that they are typical of a system, which since its foundation (one built on slavery, genocide, continental land theft and gangster capitalism) has utterly corrupt institutions which it nevertheless claims make it the bastion of the ‘free world’! As the saying goes, they have ‘no shame’.
