The Blog

Women who have chosen to defer motherhood often need affirmation of their choices from other women who have been through it all. Motherhood is a major responsibility and some women (rightly) believe that it would be irresponsible for them to have a child before they are ready. However, society can put a lot of pressure on women to have children, so they can benefit greatly in having a place where they can breathe and relax. Consider this blog as that place. There are no pressures here; just a forum to make “small talk.” We have a whole array of topics from frozen yogurt to business ideas but don’t let that limit you. Feel free to browse, vent, comment and suggest. After all, the world is your oyster; let’s go find some pearls! Check this out!

Oregon First, Again, in Enacting Women’s Rights Law

Oregon, the first state to propose decriminalizing abortion in 1969 several years prior to the landmark case of Roe vs. Wade, is again in the forefront in enacting an insurance law that would make birth control more accessible to women. Prior to the enactment, insurers typically covered the cost of 30 or 90 days worth of birth control. The new law will allow the insured to obtain a year’s worth of birth control, cutting down on the need to get a prescription after 30 or 90 days. Read more about Oregon insurance law here.

The law was signed by Oregon governor Kate Brown, who agreed with the logic behind the piece of legislation. The convenience of only having to get what you need to prevent unwanted pregnancies once a year was incontrovertible. It would decrease the barriers for birth control, especially for women in remote areas that have no easy access to doctors or pharmacies. In many rural areas in Oregon, there is not so much as a frozen yogurt franchise, let alone a fully stocked pharmacy capable of supplying what these people need at a drop of a hat.

Lawmakers in the liberal Beaver State may also propose that pharmacists be allowed to write prescriptions for birth control for women who have taken and passed a self-administered screening assessment for health risks in the future.

As expected, the Catholic Church and more conservative sectors of the state have expressed opposition to the law on expanded coverage for contraception, citing moral and social issues that may arise. Some parties also expressed criticism based on the economic effects of the expansion on insurers and employers. Read more from this site.

The law will go into effect on January 1, 2016. Legislators in other states such as New York and California evinced interest in the new law, and in Washington D.C., a similar initiative is under consideration.

The New MacBook in Review

Here is something new you might be interested to know. Apple just came out with a new notebook. The new MacBook as they call it comes with some pretty nice features but it also has some very limiting ones. So before you go to your local supplier to get one, check this out. We will give you a better idea of what the MacBook has in store.

Let’s start with the design. It has a nice light and slim design which looks good. It also comes in 3 colors, sliver, gold and space grey. The sliver is very much the standard which is ok. The gold is actually not bad to look at. My personal favourite is the space grey, which I think is wicked to look at. One downside is that it only comes in one size which is a 12inch screen.

The 12-inch, screen is a Retina, 2304 by 1440 pixels resolution display is great. It is ridiculously vivid and sharp. Viewing pictures and video will definitely be a nice experience here.

The computing power is just so and so. Although sufficient and energy efficient, the Intel Core M “Broadwell” processor is not as powerful as previous apples models. It’s great for viewing but not for heavy editing of videos and pictures. Click here to check out the specs.

The battery life is much improved in the MacBook. Apple claims it can last for up to one whole day. This is probably due to the energy efficient processor, which incidentally no longer needs a fan to keep cooled down.
The keyboard feels different but in good way. It’s like the key press is not as deep as before so it takes some time to get used to it. It is nice when you get past the getting used to stage. The new trackpad is also nice. Pressing soft and hard gives you different options depending on what you are doing. It also takes some getting used to but it also offers more flexibility of use.

Last but not the least important choice point is the data port. There is only one data port which is also the charging connector so you practically have no data port while charging. I suppose Apple thinks this will be a great opportunity for users to go completely wireless. Every peripheral here has to be connected via wireless connection. Otherwise you need to get an add-on dongle that comes with connectors for HDMI and USB plus a connection for your charger.

There you have it, the pros and cons of the new MacBook. Now it’s up to you to decide if based on the information above, this is the right or the wrong notebook for you.

‘Ware the Mirena IUD Device

We know we said we’d be relaxing here, but we thought it wise to give you a head’s up: birth control pills are not the only things you have to be worried about. Remember all that hullaballoo about those 4th generation combination oral contraceptives Yaz and Yasmin that caused serious blood clots? Hopefully, you didn’t have first-hand experience with the side effects; if you have, you should go see a product liability lawyer.

If you’re considering IUDs (intrauterine device), you should know that Mirena IUDs are getting a lot of attention in the US because there are quite a few claims that it moves! Sometimes it moves and disappears, and no one knows where it is until it punctures the uterus or causes some other havoc.

For those of you who may not be familiar with IUDs, it’s a contraceptive T-shaped device that is inserted into the uterus by a doctor or nurse. You don’t have to worry about remembering to take your pill or changing your sponge or whatever because it works for a prolonged period without attention (Mirena IUD is supposed to work for 5 years). It seems like a great concept, especially for busy working women and dizzy teenagers, but it isn’t all roses.

There are enough women complaining about the same things about Mirena IUD that it has been transferred to what is called multidistrict litigation. Basically, it means people from all over the US who have filed a civil lawsuit against the same defendant/s get together and get their cases heard together. It saves a lot of time, but each plaintiff still gets an individual verdict.

Okay, that may be too much information. What is important is if you are considering having a Mirena IUD inserted into your uterus, you might want to rethink that. There are other options anyway.

Well, enough of that. How about a healthy snack? Check this out!

Making the Most of Your Site with Affiliate Marketing

One of the most important things for most people is affirmation. This is why social networking is so popular; people have a need to be acknowledged and recognized. That is also the reason behind the popularity of blogs. In most cases, these are things people do with no thought of getting anything back but recognition. But you can make money from blogs without compromising the integrity of the site or much effort, and that is through affiliate marketing.

Let’s say that you have a blog about pregnancy and you have a section on how to lose weight after giving birth. In addition to your tips and advice, you could also have links to websites about the health benefits of yogurt, or to a recipe site featuring weight loss with yogurt. You probably do this anyway, but it would work equally well if you place links from your affiliates. Visit this site to know more.

Affiliate marketing is basically motivating site owners to put links to another site, product or service that they want to promote in exchange for commissions for visitors that click on the link and do the desired action such as registering on the site, answering a survey, or making a purchase. As a blog site owner, you can choose affiliates that are relevant to what you are trying to say on your own site. By doing this, you not only provide an added service to your visitors but also increase the value of your site as a credible resource and a profitable one.

There is no downside to affiliate marketing if you exercise discretion in choosing the programs you join. Stay away from dubious-looking websites and products or services that sound bogus to you. Also avoid affiliate marketing programs that are not relevant to what you are trying to do. Affiliate marketing is a great way to make the most of your site by letting you earn some income while keeping your site relevant.
