Morning-after pill use rises in US

Morning-after pill use rises in US

first_img Sharing is caring! 25 Views   no discussions Share Tweet Use of the morning-after pill in the US is on the rise, a trend driven largely by wider use among younger women, a major government study has found.Some 11% of sexually active women had used the morning-after pill, up from 4% in 2002, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One in four women aged 20-24 had used the drug, compared with one in nine women overall.The CDC surveyed more than 12,000 females aged 15-44 from 2006-10. The research showed that white and better educated women used the drug the most, usually due to worries that another birth control method had failed.Hispanic and black women were more likely than whites to report using the drug after unprotected sex. Regular usersOverall, about one in five women who had never been married had taken a morning-after pill, compared with just one in 20 married women.Of the women who used the pill, 59% said they had done it only once, 24% said twice, and 17% said three or more times.It was the first government report on the emergency contraceptive since regulators eased access to it seven years ago. Emergency contraception has been available by prescription in the US since 1999, before regulators approved over-the-counter sales of the drug in 2006. Also on Thursday, the CDC released a separate study on overall contraceptive use. It found that while the number of women using regular birth control pills had remained steady, the use of patches, intrauterine devices and injections had grown.BBC Newscenter_img Share Share HealthLifestyle Morning-after pill use rises in US by: – February 15, 2013last_img read more

High School Basketball Scoring

High School Basketball Scoring

first_imgRecently the Batesville/East Central basketball game wound up with just 53 points being scored.  It is an example of many of the scores in basketball this year.  I have seen more 30-point games than 80-point games.  Why is this?I think it goes back to the way scouting is today.  In the old days a coach went to a game, took notes on paper, and then developed a scouting report for his players.  Today in our electronic world, scouting reports may never see a piece of paper.  They are recorded electronically, transferred electronically, and each player gets his own personal scouting report.  If the player is diligent, he will know everything there is to know about an opposing player before they ever meet in a game.With this familiarity it is easy to see why scoring has been reduced.  Another thing I have seen is the use of zone defenses a lot more the past two years.  You would think that with the 3-point shot this would allow the players to get more shots over the zone.  But again, the scouting report pinpoints where a player likes to shoot so the defense shifts in that direction and cuts down on the number of shots that go up in a typical game.last_img read more

Hull to discuss Maguire move

Hull to discuss Maguire move

first_img “However, as he is under contract at Bramall Lane we exercised our right to set our own valuation of him and after numerous bids which did not meet our expectations Hull City increased their offer and we have reluctantly accepted. “As we have previously stated, Sheffield United are not under pressure to sell our players but on this occasion it was deemed the best for all parties and now we move on with the aim of assisting Nigel Clough to strengthen his squad.” Maguire has made over 150 appearances since coming through the Blades’ academy in 2011. Having had a final offer rejected last week the Tigers moved on to other targets, but United announced on Monday they had “reluctantly accepted the latest bid”. Hull admit the decision is now with manager Steve Bruce as to whether he wants to return to the deal. “Sheffield United rejected an offer from the club five days ago for defender Harry Maguire,” said a statement on hullcitytigers.co.uk. “This was the club’s final offer and we have since entered into discussions with other transfer targets. “In light of Sheffield United’s statement this morning the board will meet with manager Steve Bruce this afternoon to determine whether we now wish to pursue the transfer after the South Yorkshire club’s apparent U-turn.” United appear to have conceded defeat in their attempts to hang on to the 21-year-old. “Sheffield United have reluctantly accepted Hull City’s latest bid for Harry Maguire,” said a statement on sufc.co.uk. “The Premiership club have finally met United’s valuation for the defender, who has now been granted permission to speak to the East Yorkshire club.” United’s managing director Mal Brannigan admits they do not want the player to leave. “We made it clear that we wanted Harry to stay by offering him a new contract at the end of last season, unfortunately he and his representatives chose a different path,” he said. Press Association Hull’s move for Sheffield United defender Harry Maguire could be back on after a U-turn by the South Yorkshire club.last_img read more

Tennis News Roger Federer guns for ninth Wimbledon crown after perfect 10 in Halle

first_imgRoger Federer has now won 102 ATP titles.No male tennis player has won nine Wimbledon titles.Jimmy Connors has the most ATP titles with 109. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Tennis News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.center_img London: Twenty years after his debut, Roger Federer will take aim at a ninth Wimbledon title and a place in history as the oldest man to capture a Grand Slam singles crown. Federer, who turns 38 in August, is already the oldest player to win the Wimbledon men’s title in the modern era, a feat achieved in 2017 when he was 35. Australia’s Ken Rosewall was only just past 37 when he won the 1972 Australian Open, an age barrier Federer hopes to smash when Wimbledon starts Monday.     “I love being around here. It’s a good vibe. I have great memories. My heroes all won here,” said 20-time major winner Federer. “Every time I come back here, I try to be like them.” However, despite his lifetime affection for the All England Club, the tussle to add to his London silverware has become increasingly fraught.     His eighth and most recent Wimbledon title came off a straight-sets demolition of an injury-hit and tearful Marin Cilic in 2017 final.Federer was a force of nature that year, not dropping a set in the entire fortnight as title rivals fell by the wayside. Novak Djokovic retired with an elbow injury in the last-eight against Tomas Berdych while Rafael Nadal was stunned by Gilles Muller 15-13 in the final set of his last-16 engagement.     Federer’s seventh Wimbledon title had come five years earlier with a final win over Andy Murray. His first six arrived in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2009.     But 2017 aside, recent trips to London have proved disappointing for the Swiss star whose first experience of Wimbledon was an opening-round loss to Jiri Novak of the Czech Republic in 1999. In 2013, he was shocked in the second round by Ukrainian serve-and-volleying journeyman Sergei Stakhovsky.     The next two seasons saw runners-up finishes to Djokovic while the 2016 campaign ended with a five-set loss in the semi-finals, blown away by the heavy artillery of Milos Raonic. Last year was particularly painful for Federer, beaten by Kevin Anderson in the quarter-finals in a 13-11 final set.     “The losses hurt more, that you don’t want to be on the loser’s side. It motivates me to do extremely well here because I don’t want to sit here and explain my loss. That’s the worst feeling you can have as a tennis player,” he said in the aftermath of that loss to the giant South African in a tie where he held match points in the fourth set.     Despite that shattering loss 12 months ago, Federer will still go into this year’s Wimbledon as one of the favourites alongside four-time champion Djokovic.     Having seen Nadal win a 12th Roland Garros to move within two majors of Federer’s record 20 for the first time, the Swiss headed to Halle where he won a 10th title at the grass-court event. “To win 10 times in one place is a very special moment in my career,” said Federer who now has 102 career titles, just seven off the all-time record held by Jimmy Connors.     It also made him the oldest tour-level champion since 43-year-old Rosewall won at Hong Kong in 1977. “Every time I’ve won in Halle, I went on to play really well at Wimbledon,” added Federer. “It’s never a guarantee of course, but I’ve been on the Tour for long enough to know what it means.”last_img read more
