Is it just me, or have you noticed more programs where you can barter art or manual labor in exchange for health care or dental work? I first read about this last year in DailyFinance, which outlined a program in which people could earn credits for each hour they devoted to helping the hospital, from yoga practitioners training breast-cancer patients in breathing exercises to photographers taking photos of babies to give to mothers as thank-yous for choosing their hospital. Just last week, The Wall Street Journal reported on the second annual O+ Festival happening In Kingston, NY, where 100 artists bartered works and performances for blood work and dental fillings. In Maine, people are doing yardwork to earn “time dollars” for doctor’s visits, as reported by NPR. And, this isn’t just an isolated phenomenon around health care but points to a broader movement that we call New Mutualism, with “all of us collaboratively building solutions to the problems we face,” as Christian articulated in a recent blog post. Have you bartered for health care? Some other product or service? (photo by Memorial Dentists, via Flickr)
As you know, women are woefully underrepresented in STEM fields (science, tech, engineering, and math) – making up barely 11% of math faculty, and earning only 18% of computer science degrees. Nearly half of the women who graduate with engineering degrees never enter the profession, or leave soon after.There is, however, one hugely in-demand STEM specialty where women dominate: statistics!Here, women are a powerful force. More than 40% percent of degrees in statistics go to women, and they compose more than 40% of statistics department faculty that will move into tenured positions.Statistics, which is the science of learning from data, hasn’t always been viewed as one of the sexiest of the STEM disciplines. According to a recent article in The Washington Post, statistics has been rebranded as part of the exploding high tech field of data science, or Big Data.WP reporter Brigid Schulte writes, “It will take an estimated 2 million new computer scientists, mathematicians, engineers and statisticians to sort through the cacophony of data and find meaningful patterns that will help, among other things, to target customers, track diseases and find crime hot spots.”Statistics is the fastest growing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) undergraduate degree in the United States over the last four years, according to American Statistical Association. While there is no “magic bullet reason” why more women go into statistics than other Big Data STEM fields (they are also well-represented in the health sciences), Schulte believes part of it is cultural: research has found that women tend to be drawn to more collaborative sciences that focus on teamwork and communication.American Statistical Association will host the first national Women in Statistics conference this year, and has been recruiting women to lead committees. The organization has also deployed a “This is Statistics” campaign to pitch Big Data professions to middle and high school girls and minorities.This is great news for women that are thinking about entering the field – a quick search online yielded tons of open freelance statistician jobs.

MADISON, WI – SEPTEMBER 30: (L-R) Tyler Lancaster #1, Justin Jackson #21, head coach Pat Fitzgerald, Clayton Thorson #18 and Godwin Igwebuike #16 of the Northwestern Wildcats lock arms before taking the field for a game against the Wisconsin Badgers at Camp Randall Stadium on September 30, 2017 in Madison, Wisconsin. (Photo by Stacy Revere/Getty Images)No. 8 Wisconsin throttled Michigan last week in a blowout win. There’s no question it was one of the more impressive victories of the season. But as typically happens in college football after a statement win, the Badgers are struggling a week later.Wisconsin is holding a slim, 7-3 lead at the half over Northwestern. In a game with two teams which field a similar style, it’s mostly even through two quarters.Defense is ballin’ out. #B1GCats x #GoCats pic.twitter.com/q0vpzbosnc— Northwestern Football (@NUFBFamily) September 28, 2019The game wasn’t expected to be close. The Wildcats came into this contest with a 1-2 record with losses to Stanford and Michigan State. Neither defeat was all that competitive. But each game is a new season for teams across the country. Northwestern is trying to flip the switch and come away with a big win over Wisconsin.The Badgers started the game with an impressive touchdown drive. On fourth-and two, star RB Jonathan Taylor took the ball 13 yards for a touchdown — like last week, another fast start for Wisconsin.But that was all the Badgers could muster up on offense in the first half. Northwestern put together a 10 play, 83 yard drive later in the first period to tack on a field goal.Can the Wildcats pull of an unexpected upset? Or will Wisconsin get things figured out in the second half?Stay tuned for further updates about the game.
zoomImage Courtesy: Maritime Union of Australia The Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) has called for stronger regulation to end animal cruelty after barbaric practices in the live sheep trade were exposed by 60 Minutes.The MUA urged Australia’s Federal Government to temporarily ban the live export of sheep until such time as they convene a meeting with farmers, livestock industry, logistics companies, unions and animal welfare groups to determine if there is a solution that involves humane treatment and transport of animals involved.“If the solution involves phasing out of live exports then the Federal Government should provide an industry restructuring package to allow workers and farmers to transition into the value adding meat exports sector,” the MUA informed.However, if there is a long term future for live exports then “much tougher regulation must apply to animal welfare and importantly for the welfare of seafarers responsible for carrying this cargo.”This should include consideration of Australian ships operated by Australian crews under Australian legislation that governs livestock transport for the export market.MUA informed that many of the problems exist because the animals are transported on substandard vessels crewed by foreign crew who have little knowledge or understanding of Australian law and who are often exploited themselves.“In any case if the trade continues over the short or long term then independent inspectors must closely monitor the trade from farm gate to the final destination overseas.”
New Delhi: Retirement fund body EPFO has recovered Rs 459.81 crore out of Rs 1,251.44 crore pending provident fund dues during 2018-19, Parliament was informed on Wednesday.

Rabat – A 2016 Global Food Policy Report by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) classified Morocco as one of the world’s most food-secure states.According to the 2016 Global Food Policy report, the fifth in an annual series that provides a comprehensive overview of major food policy developments and events, Morocco is ranked 42nd in a list of countries that do not face starvation.The report pointed out underway efforts by the kingdom to enhance its food security indicators while several Middle Eastern and North African countries lagged far behind. According to data by IFRPI, starvation in Morocco has seen a 10 percent fall. The Global Hunger Index scores scrutinizing Morocco’s food performance across various years highlighted that only 9,5 percent of the Moroccan population face food insecurity and starvation threats in 2015, down from 18.7 percent in 1990.The report listed Morocco as one of the leading states in the North African region that managed to trim down hunger in the period from 1990 to 2016.Countries like Tunisia, Algeria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Saoudi Arabia followed Morocco’s track while such countries as Iraq and Yemen trailed behind due to internal turmoil.The report sounded the alarm over the dark figures in malnutrition across the Black Continent, with Central African regions being in the forefront of the famine blacklist.A report delivered at the House of Councilors, the upper house of the Parliament of Morocco, last August pointed out the quasi-total eradication of undernourishment in Morocco. The phenomenon was recorded with low percentages in rural areas and among Bedouin communities.According to statistical dataset outlined by the House of Councilors report, 0.5 percent of the Moroccans face underfeeding down from 4.6 percent in 1990. According to a sub-section of the report entitled “Average annual growth of agricultural output and total factor productivity (TFP) and levels of land and labor productivity,” Morocco’s land productivity saw a leap from 167 in 1990 to 320 in 2013. Land productivity designates the agricultural gross production per hectare of agricultural land.Recent years saw notable developments in Morocco’s commitment to eradicate hunger and under nutrition.The Strategic Partnership Program supported by IFPRI, which aims to provide smallholders with better access to markets for high-value commodities and to opportunities related to climate change mitigation, implemented four activities in Morocco related to market access, climate change mitigation, and nutrition sustainability.Nonetheless, Morocco has to keep up underway efforts to sustainably reduce famine and end hunger and malnutrition.Optimizing national productivity rates and promoting healthy food systems remain, therefore, paramount challenges for the Kingdom at a time when nearly 800 million people around the world are reported as undernourished.
The administration of Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf is pushing a regulation to control methane emissions from existing natural gas facilities that doesn’t directly target the potent greenhouse gas, raising alarm among environmental groups.Instead, the proposed rule sets limits on smog-forming volatile organic compounds emitted by Pennsylvania’s enormous gas industry, with methane reduction listed as a “co-benefit.” The rule doesn’t establish specific emissions standards for methane, a key contributor to climate change.Environmental advocates say the administration needs to do far more. Clean Air Council lawyer Robert Routh (ROOTH’) calls it “the bare minimum.”Administration officials say they’re under a federal mandate to do something about VOCs, a component of ground-level ozone that can worsen bronchitis and asthma. They say that controlling VOCs will also help reduce fugitive methane emissions.Michael Rubinkam, The Associated Press

Réchauffement climatique : une menace pour tous ?Pour 66% des Français, le réchauffement climatique se fait déjà sentir. Mais les différentes tranches d’âge ne se préoccupent pas de la même façon de ce bouleversement.Un sondage Ifop réalisé pour Le Monde met clairement en évidence le fait que les jeunes et les personnes âgées ne sont pas d’accord en matière de réchauffement climatique. Si 66% des Français estiment que les conséquences du réchauffement climatique se font déjà sentir, on découvre que 78% des moins de 35 ans s’en préoccupent davantage alors que seulement 50% des 65 ans et plus s’en soucient.À lire aussiQui est Greta Thunberg, proposée pour un prix Nobel à seulement 16 ans ?Cela nous renvoie aux controverses actuelles entre les sceptiques face au changement climatique et ceux qui prônent plus d’écologie. Car l’explication de ce clivage peut résider dans le fait que 91% des plus de 65 ans ont entendu parler des thèses “climato-sceptiques” contre seulement 56% chez les plus jeunes. On note aussi que 62 % des gens de gauche considèrent que le réchauffement et ses conséquences sont une menace contre 48 % des interrogés proches de la droite. En revanche, aucune différence d’opinion entre les diplômés ou non-diplômés.Dernière évaluation, en s’intéressant au regard que portent les Américains sur le problème. Le sondage met en évidence que les industriels (pétrole et charbon) ont procédé à un lavage de cerveau particulièrement efficace auprès de l’opinion publique. Le président Obama aura du mal à convaincre un peuple pour qui le problème climatique n’existe tout simplement pas. Pourtant, les Américains subissent de plein fouet les conséquences de ce réchauffement : phénomènes météorologiques extrêmes comme les cyclones et les ouragans, ou encore la hausse de la sécheresse et les canicules.Le 19 novembre 2010 à 15:41 • Emmanuel Perrin
Mediator : les entreprises du médicament se positionnent contre ServierAlors que l’affaire du Mediator met en cause les laboratoires Servier dans un scandale pharmaceutique aux nombreux rebondissements, les entreprises du médicament se positionnent aujourd’hui publiquement contre le laboratoire.Depuis quelques semaines déjà, l’affaire du Mediator tient en haleine les Français. Les laboratoires Servier sont ici accusés d’avoir tout fait pour maintenir le médicament sur le marché pharmaceutique, alors que ce produit est soupçonné d’avoir causé plusieurs centaines de décès. Au fil des jours, les accusations pleuvent contre Servier qui aurait eu connaissance de la toxicité et de la dangerosité du Mediator il y a bien des années. Aujourd’hui, le laboratoire est également décrié par le Leem, regroupant les entreprises du secteur de l’industrie pharmaceutique en France.À lire aussiAntihistaminique : qu’est-ce que c’est ? A quoi ça sert ?Le président de l’organisation s’est exprimé dans Les Echos, expliquant : “Il n’existe pas aujourd’hui de commission disciplinaire au sein du Leem, qui n’a pas les moyens d’exclure une firme (…). Il ne nous semble pas inutile que Servier renonce à un certain nombre de postes importants, comme les présidences de groupe ou la présidence de la commission économique du Leem”. Les laboratoires Servier sont donc aussi vivement décriés dans leur milieu tandis que LCI explique que depuis le début de l’affaire du Mediator, un sondage montre que les Français sont devenus plus méfiant vis-à-vis des médicaments. A noter que le ministre de la Santé, Xavier Bertrand, a fait savoir dernièrement que le système actuel de pharmaco-vigilance ferait l’objet d’une refonte prochainement (voir notre article). Le ministre propose notamment que le financement de l’Agence française de sécurité sanitaire des produits de santé se fasse par le biais d’une subvention d’Etat et non plus par les différentes contributions des industriels.

Il leur permettra de ne pas partager leurs playlists musicales sur Facebook. Spotify est désormais totalement intégré au réseau social, et seuls les internautes ayant un compte Facebook peuvent s’inscrire sur le site de musique en streaming.Il y a quelques jours, nous apprenions que le site de musique en ligne que Spotify ne serait désormais plus accessible qu’aux internautes disposant d’un compte Facebook (voir notre article). Une décision qui a provoqué la colère de certains, refusant de partager systématiquement leurs écoutes musicales sur le réseau social.Pour répondre à cette grogne, le site d’écoute de musique en streaming annonce sur son blog officiel (lien non disponible) l’ajout d’un mode d’écoute privée. “Spotify vous permet de partager et découvrir de la musique. C’est à vous de décider ce que vous souhaitez partager ou garder privé” affirme Spotify avant d’expliquer la démarche à suivre.Pour accéder à cette option, il suffit de se rendre dans l’onglet “Fichier”, où le mode “Ecoute privée” a fait son apparition. L’option ne sera toutefois active que durant le temps de la session, et devra donc être réactivée à chaque fois.Le 30 septembre 2011 à 17:56 • Maxime Lambert

Baker Mayfield has been spending more time courtside than some NBA agents after finishing his college football career at the Rose Bowl. Last night, Mayfield was at Staples to watch the Thunder beat down the Clippers, but took an L when he tried to catch a moment with Paul George after the game.George apparently didn’t recognize Mayfield, and brushed him off while heading off the floor. This is great because of the awkwardness of Baker getting left hanging.It turns out George is a big Mayfield fan, but just didn’t recognize him. Maybe it was the jean jacket. Mayfield was clearly looking for more out of this.
