What is artificial insemination with Donor sample (AID) or Donor Insemination (DI)? In as many as 30 % of infertile couples the male is responsible for infertility. A significant percentage of these males do not father children despite various treatments including ICSI. The solution is inseminating their wives with semen of another male (donor) at the time of her ovulation. This procedure is called AID or DI. Who can benefit from AID? 1. AID (Artificial Insemination Donor ) is generally advocated for males with low semen counts (Oligospermia or zero counts) (Azoospermia), where treatment with drugs, surgery and ART treatments like AIH, IUI and ICSI have proven unsuccessful. It is an acceptable alternative to adoption. 2. It is also suggested to males who may have a genetic disorder that could get transmitted to their progeny. 3. It may be used as a backup to the procedure of TESE (Testicular Sperm Extraction) and ICSI that is done for males with non-obstructive Azoospermia, especially when no sperms are found in the testicular biopsy. (see Nonsurgical Sperm Retrieval) How is the Semen obtained in Semen Banking? A donor male donates the semen after he is screened and tested as safe for various infections such as HIV, Hepatitis and other Venereal Diseases. At BabiesandUs lab, we test the donor for infections every 3 months. The semen thus obtained can be used in two ways: 1.Fresh Semen Insemination: It is insemination where the donated semen is used within an hour of

Conservation Farming and Sustainability, Missoula, Montana Helen Atthowe, Missoula County Extension Agent (Missoula, Montana) talks about the farming techniques she used near Stevensville, Montana. She calls it “Conservation Farming”. Helen is well known in the Missoula area, not just as the Missoula county extension agent, but also as one of the most popular vendors at the Missoula farmers Market Missoula Saturday market. “The goal of our conservation farming is to increase farm profitability by decreasing labor and land requirements while striving to mimic the ecological principles that make native plant systems sustainable. The ecological principles we hope to mimic include reduced tillalge, increase species and genetic diversity, closed nutrient cycles, and creation of more diverse habitat. We look at our farm from a landscape or watershed level and hope to reconnect wild areas, agriculture and urban areas. Conservation agriculture is both biologically and socially a local agriculture.” “We’re trying to develop an agriculture system, in this case a vegetable production system, that sponsors its own fertility.” Biological pest management: “.. mimic from a natural system is to sponsor our own pest control.” “We’re creating habitat for beneficial insects, parasites and predators …” “We are trying to provide habitat for birds, and pollinator insects and for other mammals that may be in the system. We’re trying to create a link between natural systems and agricultural systems.” Includes footage of an all native

Not Suitable for Children – 2012 NEW Official Trailer

Not Suitable for Children If your twenties is the party decade, then Jonah Reid (Ryan Kwanten) is one very high achiever. Impulsive and charismatic, Jonah lives in a crumbling inner-city share-house, surviving off the proceeds of the massive, anarchic house-parties he hosts every week with his best mate Gus (Ryan Corr). All financial considerations and life administration he outsources to fellow housemate Stevie (Sarah Snook). In the wake of an unfortunate discovery during a one-night-stand, Jonah is diagnosed with testicular cancer. Assured that his life is not at risk, he is warned that his impending treatment will render him totally and permanently infertile. A shell-shocked Jonah goes directly to the sperm bank in an effort to preserve his parenting future, but when his samples fail to freeze effectively, he is left with just one option for parenthood – natural conception. Within the next four weeks! Suddenly the party maestro and has a convulsive shift in priorities. With paternal instincts firing, Jonah becomes determined to procreate before it’s too late. He barrels back to his ex-girlfriends – starting with Ava (Bojana Novakovic) – but after failing to convince her to drop her life and offer her womb, Jonah contacts just about every girl he has ever known (and some he doesn’t) before being given a reality check by Stevie. Advising him to ditch the ex-girlfriend strategy and cut out the emotional complications, Stevie assesses his options with razor-sharp frankness

The Golden Bough by James Frazer. Preface ch1/2 King of The Wood & Diana and Virbius

The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion is a wide-ranging comparative study of mythology and religion, written by Scottish anthropologist Sir James George Frazer (1854–1941). It offered a modernist approach, discussing religion dispassionately as a cultural phenomenon, rather than from a theological perspective. Although most of its theories have subsequently been exploded (the most famous one being that of the relationship between magic, religion and science), its impact on contemporaneous European literature was substantial. The Golden Bough attempts to define the shared elements of religious belief, ranging from ancient belief systems to relatively modern religions such as Christianity. Its thesis is that old religions were fertility cults that centered around the worship of, and periodic sacrifice of, a sacred king. This king was the incarnation of a dying and reviving god, a solar deity who underwent a mystic marriage to a goddess of the earth, who died at the harvest, and was reincarnated in the spring. Frazer claims that this legend is central to almost all of the world’s mythologies, and he offers a plethora of colourful examples from all over the world. Moreover, his book is written in an admirable style, seldom excelled by his more modern colleagues.

Food as a Weapon Part 1

Henry Kissinger revealed that food can be used as a weapon against the People in favor of the NWO depopulation program. In the USA it is prohibited to grow your own food in your own yard(s) more and more. Even private emergency food storage is under attack. Proof that the government is poisoning the population. With their stated goal to reduce population worldwide, the eugenicists who run the world state have resorted to any means necessary to target reproduction and fertility, including the outrageous measures identified in the 1969 Planned Parenthood — World Population memo written by Frederick S. Jaffe. That memo proposes reducing US fertility via postponement of marriage, discouraging tax incentives for parents, encouraged increases in homosexuality, adding fertility control agents to the water supply and encouraging women to work, as well as measures including forced abortions and payments to encourage abortions. Many of these draconian calls for involuntary fertility control reflect some of the most controversial entries in the 1977 Ecoscience volume written by current White House science advisor John P. Holdren & population bomb scare-monger Paul Ehrlich. From Bisphenol-a (BPA), to GMO crops, fluoride in water and countless other toxins slow killing modern society, the elite controllers have intentionally triggered cancer, disease and sterility while trying to mask their attack through “slow” ambient poisons that gradually drag down the masses as they eat factory
