Catholic Church Birth Control,
As confirmed by a recent international poll of 12,000 Catholics in 12 countries, many Catholics do not embrace the church's teachings on family planning. Many, in fact, hope that Pope Francis will relax, if not reverse, the church's longstanding opposition to the use of modern contraceptives.
While most of my global health films on women and girls are used as tools to advocate for increased awareness of an issue, increased funding or better legislation, I will be using PODER! as a tool to advocate for more leadership training to ensure girls can advocate for their own causes, their own funding and impact legislation in their own communities.
Life after the military can be challenging, so to help you get started, here are seven ways to help you become successful after the military.
These findings highlight an important and previously unreported link between early misfortune, unhealthy living and serious health risks in early adulthood. It's not to suggest that this is the only mechanism at work, but these hopeful findings identify actual behavioral targets.
'PODER' is the engaging story of Elba and Emelin, two indigenous Guatemalan girls who overcame poverty and discrimination to transform a community of over 26,000 people, and their nation of 14 million.
If this burgeoning field of peacebuilding is to reach full potential, we must help catalyze and galvanize a movement behind it and create much stronger systems and infrastructure to support it.
The fact that they are still standing and alive with very little or no support shows me how resilient the human spirit is. Through the illnesses, the lack of food, the brutal weather and the abuse they undoubtedly endure, they still manage to be.
Education is the key for young girls all over the world to grow up and do great things. In the words of Alice Walker, "The most common way people give up their power is by thinking that they don't have any."
During those years, they watched as peer after peer dropped out through round after round of selection. What inspires someone to dedicate so much to preparing for something that only a few will achieve? The answer, of course, is self-confidence.
Alongside the string of new research advances is the realization that we're failing to deliver what already works today to people in need. This has to be the year where we honor their commitment by following through on our promise to deliver proven options to the communities where they live.
We rely on the ocean for food, for transport, for the very air we breathe, but the current systems in place for governing and managing its resources are not fit for purpose.
Very few animals who enter the shelter system come out alive; instead, a high proportion are euthanized, often in horrific gas chambers, in spite of volunteer networks scurrying to place adoptable shelter dogs in homes before their short time runs out.
By the time my mom was my age, she was already a widow with two girls. It wasn't until I became a mom myself that I finally discovered the values and heroism of the woman that brought me into this world.

Priscilla Presley is on a mission. Cruelty to animals is never acceptable. Never! Presley made an important stop in Washington, D.C. recently to lobby Congress to pass the 'Prevent All Soring Tactics' (PAST Act) that will strengthen enforcement of the 1970 Horse Protection Act.
In 2011 the United States Power Soccer team won its second consecutive World Cup title, becoming the only U.S. soccer team to win back-to-back World Cups. Despite this remarkable achievement, the team has not yet been invited to the White House to be honored by President Obama. I really believe that it is time for the White House to be proactive in celebrating the dedication and achievements of athletes of all abilities representing the U.S.A. This April, the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team will visit the White House on their way to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The goal of the campaign is to seek an invitation for the U.S. Power Soccer Team to join the U.S. Men's National Team in their visit. How great would it be for president Obama to have the opportunity to honor both teams at the same time, and send a message of inclusion to the world? The United States won the first Power Soccer World Cup in Tokyo in 2007, defeating Belgium, England, Denmark, Japan and Portugal before beating France in a penalty shoot-out in the finals to win the cup. The team then made history when it defended its title in Paris four years later, defeating England 3-0 in the final becoming the first American soccer team to defend their title as world champions. "Each year, winning teams in major sports in the U.S. spend time with the President; it is an honor athletes who reach the highest of milestones enjoy," said Chris Finn, Head Coach of the U.S. team. "Considering we are the only team in U.S. history to win TWO world cups, I think it is prudent for our team to visit with the President and introduce him to our growing global sport." Power Soccer is the fastest growing sport for power wheelchair users. Players use these power wheelchairs to pass, defend, and spin-kick a large 13-inch soccer ball in a skilled and challenging game similar to traditional soccer. Teams of four athletes compete on a regulation-sized basketball court, under rules established by the governing body of power soccer, the Federation Internationale de Powerchair Football Association (FIFPA). This sport provides an unparalleled opportunity for everyone to be able to experience the magic of soccer. As believer in sports as a tool to bring people together, I really believe that The U.S. Power Soccer Team can inspire millions with their accomplishments, and that President Obama has an incredible opportunity to honor this inspiring group of players. To achieve this goal, USPSA and Senda Athletics are launching a Change.org campaign to gather 1,000 signatures of support, generate awareness for this cause and send the two-time defending World Cup champions to the White House. For those of you on Twitter, we have created a web page that allows you to send a tweet to the people at the White House and US Soccer that can make this happen.
A few months after we incorporated, I dined with some girlfriends -- all mothers. While discussing our respective labors, one of them, who herself had two unplanned C-sections, said, "I am convinced if I lived 100 years ago, I would have died in childbirth." All I could think was, "this is still happening to women."
Slums in the Global South are often used as "laboratories of urbanism," where initiatives are experimentally "tried out." While this approach encourages self-invention in slums, it can also be highly controversial to use informal communities as experimental territory.
What remains is a communication gap, which requires not simply a fix of one side or the other, but a bridge to connect the two.
The editors of Legacies of the War on Poverty focus their attention almost entirely on selected individual programs. They fail to examine the long-term, more intangible impacts of the War on Poverty that do not lend themselves to statistical analysis.

For so many women affected by breast cancer, like Angelique, it all comes back to daughters. The next generation. The group of young women, like myself, who have a whole other world of resources and therefore hopefully a whole other world of hope to live cancer free.
