Senior Citizens Are Replacing Teenagers as Fast-Food Workers 

 

The sullen teenager grinding through a restaurant shift after school was once a pop culture cliche—as American as curly fries.

Nowadays, Brad Hamilton, the teen played by Judge Reinhold in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” would probably be too young to work at the fictional Captain Hook Fish and Chips. That’s because senior citizens are taking his place—donning polyester, flipping patties and taking orders. They’re showing up at casual dining chains such as Bob Evans and fast-food operators like McDonald’s Corp., which says it plans to make senior citizens one hiring focus in the coming year.

Paraplegic man drags himself through airport 

 

The image is shocking: Justin Levene, a paraplegic man, dragging himself along the floor through Luton Airport after his self-propelling wheelchair was left behind on a flight.

As he hauls himself through the arrivals hall on his backside, other passengers seem oblivious.

Growing number of U.S. children not vaccinated against any disease 

 

A small but growing proportion of the youngest children in the U.S. have not been vaccinated against any disease, worrying health officials.

An estimated 100,000 young children have not had a vaccination against any of the 14 diseases for which shots are recommended, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report released Thursday.

"This is pretty concerning. It's something we need to understand better — and reduce," said the CDC's Dr. Amanda Cohn.

Most young children — 70 percent — have had all their shots. The new estimate is based on finding that, in 2017, 1.3 percent of the children born in 2015 were completely unvaccinated. That's up from the 0.9 percent seen in an earlier similar assessment of the kids born in 2011. A 2001 survey with a different methodology suggested the proportion was in the neighborhood of 0.3 percent.

Young children are especially vulnerable to complications from vaccine-preventable diseases, some of which can be fatal.

Yelp will now allow pro-LGBTQ businesses to highlight they are ‘open to all’ 

 

Over 1200 businesses – including Yelp, Levi’s, Lyft, and Airbnb – have launched “Open to All,” a project to get businesses to show that they don’t discriminate.

The project will give businesses two ways to show that they do not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, or other characteristics. They can post a sticker on their windows that says that they are open to all, and they can check a box for an “open to all” attribute on Yelp.

New York Schools To Begin Mental Health Education Classes 

 

At the top of July 2018, New York State (NYS) required public schools to implement a mental health segment within the curriculum. With the school year now underway, the program will take effect and aim to nurture children’s perception and experience with mental health.

While the learning plan aims to educate young students, it’ll also serve as a learning tool for teachers. At the top of the year, when the mandate was first announced, Glenn Liebman, CEO of NYS Mental Health Association, said to News10, “We’re not looking to be psychiatrists. We don’t want teachers to be clinicians or anything like that. We’re looking for them to have a basic understanding about mental health issues, about signs and symptoms.”

Monogamy May Be Even More Difficult For Women Than it Is For Men 

 

It’s a widely held belief that monogamy comes more naturally to women than it does to men. A lot of people subscribe to a narrative that says the sexes are just “wired” differently, with women having evolved to be monogamous and men to be promiscuous.

There’s just one problem with this line of thinking—it’s not true, according author Wednesday Martin’s latest book. In UNTRUE: Why Nearly Everything We Believe About Women, Lust, and Infidelity is Wrong and How the New Science Can Set Us Free , Martin offers a provocative read based on the latest research studies and interviews with experts in human sexuality that challenges us to think differently about women and sex. She sets the record straight on a number of false beliefs about female sexuality in particular, including when and why women cheat.

A Man Says His DNA Test Proves He’s Black, and He’s Suing 

 

In 2014, Ralph Taylor applied to have his insurance company in Washington State certified as a “disadvantaged business enterprise.” The DBE program at the U.S. Department of Transportation was originally designed to help minority- and woman-owned businesses win government contracts. So as proof of his minority status, Taylor submitted the results of a DNA test, estimating his ancestry to be 90 percent European, 6 percent indigenous American, and 4 percent sub-Saharan African.

Government officials reviewing Taylor’s application were not convinced. They saw that he looked white. They noted that he was unable to directly document any nonwhite ancestors. They doubted the underlying validity of the DNA test. And, most relevant to the purpose of the program, they found “little to no persuasive evidence that Mr. Taylor has personally suffered social and economic disadvantage by virtue of being a Black American.” They refused to certify his company. So Taylor decided to sue—out of principle, he says, because other business owners who look white have won DBE certification before. The Seattle Times first reported on the case in detail last week.

Activist Dior Vargas Wants to Center People of Color in the Mental Health Conversation 

 

Mental health issues are not the sole domain of white people. Although that should be obvious, the media visibility afforded to communities of color around these issues—or lack thereof—doesn’t always reflect that. But Latina activist Dior Vargas has made it her mission to make people of color dealing with mental health issues more visible. Her voice is an important one as the mental health conversation moves forward in communities of color.

Vargas, 31, grew up in East Harlem, New York. From the age of 14, she’s been diagnosed with various mental health problems including major depression, anxiety, and borderline personality disorder. In 2014, wanting to add further focus to her activism and knowledge to her internal biblioteca, Vargas dug through the internet in search of accurate visual depictions of the multifarious, layered experience of mental health she well knows—but to little avail. Instead, she said, she was met with images of people who “nine times out of ten were white” in historical images, photographs of white women, or both.

The Surprising Reason We Lack So Much Knowledge About Women's Health 

 

One big way that gender bias in research has skewed biomedical knowledge is that a lot of the knowledge we have about diseases that affect both genders and the effects of drugs and other treatments is based on research on men. For decades, a lot of clinical research was done solely or largely on men and the results were extrapolated to women. It’s really only since the early nineties that the research community has begun to recognize the importance of including women and paying attention to the possibility that there may be sex/gender differences. Back then, the National Institutes of Health wasn’t keeping track of whether women were enrolled in its federally funded research. The Food and Drug Administration was prohibiting all women of childbearing age from taking part in early-phase drug trials. And researchers were generally reluctant to include women for paternalistic reasons (a concern for the possible risks to women and/or their future fetuses) and also out of laziness (accounting for women’s varying hormonal states and cycles was thought to make it more complicated and costly to get statistically significant results).

AI-Driven Dermatology Could Leave Dark-Skinned Patients Behind 

 

LaToya Smith was 29 years old when she died from skin cancer. The young doctor had gotten her degree in podiatry from Rosalind Franklin University, in Chicago, just four years prior, and had recently finished a medical mission in Eritrea. But a diagnosis of melanoma in 2010 meant she would work in private practice for only a year before her death.

As a black woman, LaToya reflected a stark imbalance in skin-cancer statistics in America. While fair-skinned people are at the highest risk for contracting skin cancer, the mortality rate for African Americans is considerably higher: Their five-year survival rate is 73 percent, compared with 90 percent for white Americans, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.

Why People With Disabilities Want Bans On Plastic Straws To Be More Flexible 

 

It was a hot day at the zoo when Jordan Carlson's son, who has motor-planning delays, got thirsty. "We went to the snack bar and found out they had a 'no straw' policy," Carlson says. "It was a hot day and he couldn't drink."

Their only option was to leave the park and look for a business that sold drinks with a straw. Without one, her son can't drink beverages. At home they use reusable straws, and she tries to keep some on hand when they leave the house, but "I'm human and sometimes I forget," Carlson explains. People with disabilities have to be much more conscious of what businesses and communities offer, Carlson says.

The Era of Affirmative Action May Not Last Much Longer 

 

On Tuesday, the Trump administration made its official position clear: Schools should limit their use of race as a factor when determining admissions. The administration is moving to rescind seven guidance documents from the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights and the Department of Justice, according to The New York Times. These Obama-era memos encouraged elementary, secondary schools, and colleges to use race in efforts diversify their student bodies, and outlined how to do so within the law. The Trump administration will break with this precedent, and will not actively encourage schools to diversify, the Times reported.
