Therefore many urologists still believe that doctors and their patients should weigh these pros and cons of screening. For that reason, the American Urologic Association and the American Cancer Society advocate thorough discussion and decision-making between doctors and patients. Anxiety can lead men to over-treat prostate cancer Researchers wanted to understand the state of those discussions and how the task force recommendation may have changed them. It's important to measure and track the full spectrum of effects of public health actions, such as the new national recommendations, Gjelsvik says. The findings could be explained by factors other than the US Preventive Services Task Force recommendation, the authors say, but they believe our findings may be indicative of a shift in practice patterns away from detailed pre-screening discussions among health care providers who have implemented the [USPSTF] recommendation into their care giving.

You will learn how far this secret plan has advanced in the last 100 years and what must be done to stop it before all Christianity is eradicated from planet Earth. You will learn how this plan is just the first stepping stone to eradicating any an all religions and moral standards from Planet Earth in order to transform humanity into a humanistic society based on moral relativism that is, situational defined morality with no absolute moral standards of right and wrong. . And this is all being done hidden in plain sight , without most Christians even being aware of what is being taken from them. And it is being done subtly by influencing the doctrines of American Christian Churches to conform to a false doctrine that upon first consideration seems reasonable, positive and even appears to be true. This is the false doctrine of Christian Zionism, the belief that Jews should return to the Holy Land and re-establish ancient Biblical Israel, which was the source of Jesus Christ and Christianity in the first place.

That old-time use of the word leggings remained the dominant one until the 20th century. Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter Then, the high demand for rubber during World War II led to a reduced supply and a demand for rubber alternatives. During the course of research into that problem, DuPont chemist Joseph Shivers developed a synthetic fiber in 1959 that could stretch up to 600% of its original size and go back to its original shape, according to the American Chemical Society. Originally called Fiber X, this lighter, more breathable invention replaced natural rubber in garments and became known as Lycra or Spandex (an anagram of the word expands). So, when stretch pants became technologically possible, it made sense that they would eventually take on the name that had long been associated with garments that fit tight around the legs.

and where the press...there is an agreement that the press shouldn't say it. Terrorism doesn't need to make us afraid. I kept thinking yesterday of the words of Jon Stewart, the American comedian, after 9/11. He said that 9/11 didn't make him fear for society cos he looked at what had happened and he saw a handful of people.

Militants have increasingly targeted educational institutions, young professionals and educated members of the Afghan society. Experts believe militants are purposely targeting these institutions to deprive the younger generation from education and to disconnect them from the rest of the world. “The attackers wanted to permanently close this excellent center of learning. They failed,” Khalilzad said. “I wish the AUAF success in delivering on its mission: to educate its students and provide them with 21st century skills, who can lead successful lives and, in turn, can help Afghanistan succeed.” Initially, for many the attack on the school seemed to have been the beginning of an end for the university. But the institution’s administrators told VOA that many of the university’s foreign faculty have returned. Some parents remain concerned about the safety of their children, fearing another attack by the militants.

By Juan Cole | (Informed Comment) | The struggle over health care in the United States is a form of class warfare, complicated by racism. The Republican proposal for the American Health Care Act, as they called it, made this warfare clear. The bill was not so much a health care act as a massive tax cut for the wealthiest Americans, paid for by tossing 24 million people off health care. In fact the bill failed because it made the class warfare too transparent. You can't give CEOs $500k tax breaks and throw 24 million people off health insurance and still be representing yourself as representing the people. The outrage is Trump's bait and switch. He campaigned on making sure everyone has health insurance. Then his healthcare bill massively reduces the number of people who have health care plans. The US has a two-tiered society.

I hope that this makes Trump the earliest lame duck ever." Whatever comes of the developments, they became the latest chapter in a long-running policy debate — from Teddy Roosevelt's call for national health insurance in 1912; through waves of New Deal and Great Society legislation that brought Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, but no comprehensive health system for all; to an unsuccessful attempt at universal coverage at the start of Bill Clinton's administration. For now at least, Trump joins a list of American presidents who sought but failed to bring major health-related reform. Trump has railed against the 2010 ACA since the start, and GOP leaders in Congress have rallied for its repeal with dozens of votes during the Obama years. Republicans won the chance to replace the health law with Trump's win and control of both chambers of Congress.

The annual spectacle of the Mummers Parade is a circus of elaborate costumes and fancy footwork. Every New Years Day for the last 116 years, Philadelphians have pranced the streets to pay homage to community tradition. For photographer Andrea Modica, who has been documenting Mummers for the last nine years, it is this sense of neighborly spirit that first drew her in. In a country where society is becoming increasingly fractured, events like this offer a rare opportunity to rally together. But in among the innocent merrymakers, some have been criticized for parading in culturally inappropriate costumes ; from blackface to mock Native American headdresses to takedowns of the LGBTQ community. This reached a peak in 2016 and spurred the organizers to offer sensitivity training to participants. And while hate crimes in the U.S. have reportedly risen under the new administration, this years parade seemed largely free from controversy , compared to other years.
