    Women over 35 who are planning to have a baby are often acutely aware of their biological clock. But the influence of the father’s age could play a more vital role than they previously thought – if they are conceiving using IVF, a study suggests. Analysis of nearly 19,000 IVF cycles revealed that for women under 35 or over 40, the age of their male partner made little difference to their chances of conceiving. But there was a ‘significant drop’ in the live birth rate for women between the ages of 35 and 40 if their partner was 40 and above. The influence of the father’s age could play a more vital role than they previously thought – if they are conceiving using IVF, a study suggests  The findings could help shape fertility advice for couples trying to conceive. They will also challenge traditional assumptions that the age of the female partner should always be the primary consideration, the researchers said.  One of the authors of the study, Professor Geeta Nargund, medical director at IVF clinic group Create Fertility, told The...
    In 2022, the U.S. economy has had both good news and bad news. The good news: According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), unemployment fell to 3.6% in March — which is the lowest unemployment the United States has had in more than half a century. The bad news: the U.S. is also seeing its worst inflation in 40 years. Liberal economist Paul Krugman, in his New York Times column and his Twitter posts, has been stressing that despite the pain that inflation is inflicting on consumers, the U.S. economy is “booming” in the Biden era. Krugman revisits the inflation issue in his April 12 column, predicting that “inflation will probably fall significantly over the next few months” but warning, “the better numbers we’re about to see won’t mean that the inflation problem is over.” Inflation is likely to come down soon, but some of the improvement will be ... transitoryhttps://www.nytimes.com/2022/04/12/opinion/inflation-consumer-prices.html\u00a0\u2026 — Paul Krugman (@Paul Krugman) 1649784047 “The inflation report for March came in hot, as expected: Consumer prices are up 8.5% over the past year,” Krugman notes....
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The number of Philadelphia schools switching to virtual learning this week is now over 100. Two more schools have joined the growing list because of the COVID-19 surge brought upon by the omicron variant. Right now, a total of 101 schools are virtual. On Wednesday afternoon, Superintendent Dr. William Hite gave an update on what’s being done to keep students safe. READ MORE: Kevin Hart, Meek Mill & Michael Rubin Donating $15 Million To 110 Philadelphia Schools“It is an understatement that this school year has not been easy or predictable,” Hite said. More than 100 Philadelphia schools shifted to virtual learning this week. “Omicron continues to significantly impact our staffing levels, sometimes forcing us to sometimes temporarily pivot from in-person to virtual learning at a moment’s notice,” Hite said. Hite addressed parents, teachers, students and staff in a Facebook Live on Wednesday afternoon. He says the school district is finding ways to maneuver around the omicron variant and keep school doors open. “This includes installing multiple hand sanitizing stations in every building, placing an air purifier in...
    VACCINATING kids over 12 will "significantly" reduce the risk of Covid outbreaks forcing schools to close again, scientists declared today. Boffins revealed getting jabbed makes it 50% less likely that youngsters will catch the virus as they extended the rollout to all teenagers. 2Scientists have approved vaccinations for 12-15 year oldsCredit: Alamy 2Prof Chris Whitty said the move will cut outbreaks in schoolsCredit: AFP But they also insisted that vaccination alone "will not eliminate disruption" and urged ministers to keep in place measures like mass testing. The remarks came as the chief medical officers of the four UK nations today approved the Pfizer jab for 12-15 year olds. Youngsters in that age group will be given a single shot rather than the full double dose because of the risk of rare side effects. Professor Chris Whitty said the need to keep kids in school was a key part of the decision to approve vaccination for youngster children. He told today's press conference: "We are confident about reducing disruption, we are also confident this will not eliminate disruption. "Because it reduces...
    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The city of Portland, Oregon’s plan to boycott Texas goods and services over its new abortion law could cost Texas companies millions of dollars a year, officials said Tuesday. Heather Hafer, a spokeswoman with the Office of Management and Finance, said Portland has inked almost $35 million in contracts with Texas-based businesses over the last five years, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported. She also said Portland employees have made 19 separate trips to the Lonestar State on official business since 2019, a number she said would have been significantly higher if travel hadn’t been stopped for a year amid the coronavirus pandemic. The potential financial impact information comes after Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick on Twitter Monday called Portland boycotting Texas “a complete joke.” “Texas’ economy is stronger than ever. We value babies and police, they don’t,” he wrote on the social media site. The Portland City Council is scheduled to vote Wednesday on the measure, which would halt the city from spending money with Texas businesses as well as forbid employee travel to the state. The...
    A California home that was destroyed down to its "bare bones" is now under contract with an accepted offer reaching well over the original, $850,000 asking price. The four bedroom, two bathroom, 2,395-square-foot dwelling is located in the city of Walnut Creek – roughly 1.5 hours from San Francisco.  "Bring your contractor, architect, and designer: this is more than a fixer and the potential is limited only by imagination," read the listing for the single-family residence.  The four bedroom, two bathroom, 2,395-square-foot dwelling is located roughly 1.5 hours from San Francisco (Melinda Byrne/Key Realty) Despite its appearance, seller’s agent Melinda Byrne of Key Realty told FOX News that she expected the house to sell for the amount that it did being that it sits in a "gorgeous neighborhood," she said.  "The high school is one of the best in the area. It’s also very close to Mount Diablo State Park, so it's surrounded by beautiful hiking trails, horses, walking trails galore and you’re really close to shopping," Byrne said. "So, where this home is located is in a prime area." The four bedroom,...

    Mars has something to smile about! The infamous 'Happy Face' crater near the Red Planet's south pole has gotten noticeably bigger over the last decade. NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter first recorded the grinning visage in 2011, using its powerful High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera. Researchers compared an image of the crater from October 2011 to one from December 13, 2020 and report the 'mouth' has gotten larger. The growing smile is actually caused by thermal erosion, as carbon dioxide evaporates and exposes more soil. The 'nose' on the face has also grown, from two small dots to one large depression. The MRO began analyzing Mars shortly after its arrival in 2006. Scroll down for video Comparing images of the 'happy face' crater at Mars' south pole from 2011 and 2020, researcher say a decade of erosion has made the 'mouth' larger and turned the nose from two small depressions into one combined hole 'You can see how nine years of this thermal erosion have made the 'mouth' of the face larger,' said Ross Beyer, a planetary scientist with the Sagan...
    From the good old days, when players struggled to even build basic structures, Fortnite has come a long way. Even though the game’s casual user base has steadily declined in the past few months, it still boasts a very active competitive scenario. Fortnite revolutionized the battle royale genre simply because it offered a lot more than just gun combat. Being good at Fortnite requires players to brush up on several aspects like building, editing, box fighting, aiming, and of course, game sense. Over the years, certain players have not only mastered these skills but further innovated them to a level that the entire community followed their lead. A recent post on r/FortniteCompetitive talked about some of these pros: ALSO READ-  From Bugha to benjyfishy, Here are the Best Fortnite Players of 2020 Contribution of Fortnite pros like Bugha, Clix, and Chap Cloud9 professional Ryan “Chap” Chaplo and FaZe Bizzle were some of the first players to improvise zone movements.

    MARK Zuckerberg has blamed the Trump administration for the coronavirus pandemic becoming "worse than many other countries" due to "less effective" leadership. The Facebook CEO slammed President Donald Trump's response to the US outbreak during a Thursday afternoon discussion with Dr Anthony Fauci. 1 Mark Zuckerberg slammed the Trump administration on Thursday for the worsening of the US coronavirus outbreakCredit: Reuters "At this point, it is clear that the trajectory of the US is significantly worse than many other countries, and that our government and this administration have been considerably less effective in handling this," Zuckerberg said during the interview, which was live-streamed by Reuters. The tech entrepreneur asserted that the US "reopened too quickly" before lowering the number of reported cases, citing the sharp drop of cases in "every other developed country" as an example of the misstep. "Our response needs to be guided by science," he added before expressing his gratitude for Fauci's "dedicated leadership". Fauci, who had repeatedly warned the nation about rushing to open businesses, agreed that some states "jumped over" their reopening guidelines.   More...
