THE FUTURE OF CHILDBIRTH


IF YOU HAVE SOME SPARE TIME IN THE COMING DAYS, LISTEN TO LAST NIGHT’S CLYDE LEWIS RADIO SHOW..





It was beyond important..

The title was “My Name is Metal” and talked about the very real future that is about to hit humanity like a freight train: Babies becoming less inclined to being born from a womb.. instead, futuristic ways of putting stem cells away for later, so women can choose when she has a child, is coming. Along with that, religious implications, societal upheaval, commonplace gay parents, and future shock..

Clyde Lewis opened his show with shock and awe:
Being in a lab or a building where we can grow children is at least two years away according to a report from Russia Today and the child-growing lab is being used in order to allow two men to have children.
Babies of same-sex couples are becoming a future prospect, as scientists have disclosed revolutionary research on making human egg and sperm cells using the skin of two adults.
It means that we might soon see a fully “dish-manufactured” baby in a lab.

The show had a free-flowing only caller driven format .. during the course of the program—and this is not a scientific viewpoint at all—the majority of younger callers seemed to be better apt to having agreeable minds to the future coming. However, older callers—and those who professed more of a Bible bumper belief system—did not.

The amazing part is this: It’s all happening. Not later, but now.

Last week TIME magazine published a cover with an adorable baby’s face: The headline read ‘This baby could live to 142 years old’ 

There are dangers with this future. But amazing possibilities too.. the idea of knowing genetic defects prior to birth.. the chance for parents who cannot have children being able to in new ways.. And even more, as Clyde Lewis argued, this could end the abortion debate. Imagine no more need for women to consider aborting a fetus… instead putting it all on hold, saving the pregnancy for when she is ready through the use of artificial practices.

The future is now.
And it’s going to scare a lot of people.
It’s going to shred old style beliefs on life and death..
And it’s going to be a totally more revolutionary idea than the test tube baby of last century.

Welcome to the brave new world, earth.

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
