*  Adopt Australian CSA system of support for families, says Fathers Direct: The Fatherhood Institute
The Government's review of policy around separated families must create an extensive, new system of support for separated families alongside tough measures for a minority of non-payers, Fathers Direct, the National Information Centre on Fatherhood, said today. Welcoming the review, the charity highlighted the success of the Australian CSA, whose holistic methods, looking at all the problems separated families face in terms of housing, work, benefits and relationships, has produced the world's most successful system for collecting child support payments. The Australian CSA is both efficient and effective: it collects $8 for every $1 spent; almost all separating parents now register with it, the vast majority declaring themselves either 'satisfied' or 'very satisfied'; more than half end up with private arrangements for the transfer of cash, based on the formula and monitored annually. The Australian system has achieved these successes with an emphasis on prevention (for example, reaching out to ...

*  Promoting Fatherhood Where It's Needed Most
Sal Hanaif is all too familiar with the frightened looks on many of his program participants' faces, and the swagger that they use to compensate. As director of the teen fathers program at the Greater Bridgeport Area Prevention Program, he has seen countless young men come in to his weekly discussion groups trying to make sense of a life-altering new role. Not all of them respond heroically.. "One of the guys said that when he found out he was going to be a father, he was going to leave the state," Hanaif says. "He was flipped out, then his boys brought him in.". A supportive environment and a heavy dose of reality helped that young man cope and eventually thrive despite difficult circumstances. Hanaif, like other youth workers who serve teen dads, says that successful counseling for this population is a matter of helping them overcome their fears and lack of role models, and developing solid goals. We asked them to name teen fathers' greatest needs and their approaches to meeting them:. A Place ...

Becoming a member of our species is conferred immediately upon conception. At the moment of conception a human being with 46 chromosomes comes into existence. These chromosomes, the organization, the chromosomal pattern is specifically human. The RNA, the messenger protein, the proteins are distinctly human proteins. So this new human being is a member of our species, and humanity is not acquired sometime along the path, it occurs right at conception. Dr. Peeters-Ney also stated that an embryo or fetus is whole in the sense that "[a]ll the genetic information sufficient and necessary to mature, and the information that is needed for this human being's entire life is present at the time of conception"; that it is "separate from the mother" because "[t]he genetic program is totally complete and this human being will mature according to his or her own program"; and that it is unique because it has "a totally unique genetic code ...
*  Difference between revisions of "Course:Gaucher disease" - UBC Wiki
A diagnosis of GD has implications for other family members and family planning. Therefore, it is important to speak with a genetic counsellor who can help you make decisions about further testing.[10][11]. Mentioned above, GD is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion, meaning that if a couple has a child with GD, it is almost always the case that they are both unaffected carriers. This means that they both have a gene change in one copy the GBA gene, and the other copy is functional. At conception, siblings of a person with GD have a 25% chance of also being affected with GD, 50% chance that they are carriers like their parents, and a 25% chance of being unaffected and non-carriers. After birth, if it is determined that the sibling is unaffected, then there is a 2/3 chance that he/she is a carrier. If a person with GD has children, then all of his/her children will be carriers ...

*  Becoming A Dad: What You Need To Know | www.justmommies.com
In all the excitement of announcing a pregnancy, the dad sometimes gets pushed aside. It's as if the mother created the baby inside of her all by her lonesome.. Science is advanced, no debate there. But it's not that advanced just yet.. Men are told that they have to be patient, gentle and understanding. They are bombarded with all this information about the changes your wife or girlfriend will be going through, both physical and emotional.. For the most part the media portrays fatherhood as an accident, an outcome of sex that men are aware of but are willing to take their chances with for the purpose of 'getting some'. When it happens, the men who take responsibility for that outcome are applauded for 'stepping up to the plate'.. Women are looked at as the ones who actively pursue getting pregnant. There's apparently no male 'biological clock'.. For the purposes of this article, we'll be focusing more on a planned pregnancy and what you, the father, need to know when you decide to take that ...
*  Journeys in Lyssy-land: November 2011
One day, I actually read the words of the Nicene Creed. Somehow, I was reading it with fresh eyes. And when I saw all the "I believe"-s I'd been rattling off for over a decade... I froze. Here I'd been declaring two or more times a week, in God's house, all the things I believed. But I wasn't sure I actually did believe these things. I'd never thought about what the words actually meant until that day, just the comfort of the ritual. And suddenly, it was topsy-turvy. I mean, let's forget for a moment about all those references in the services to God as our father, and my experience of fatherhood at that time, because that's a lifetime of blogs in itself. But how about in the Creed itself, "...in all things, visible and invisible." Pretty mighty stuff. How do I know if I believe in all things invisible? Does that mean everything invisible, like poltergeists and stuff, or just church-y invisible things like angels and heaven? How do you know which "all things" are supposed to be on the list? Will ...
