People are angry about Arie and Lauren’s pregnancy April Fools’ prank

Filed under: Entertainment, TV, TV NewsArie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham didn’t get the message that pregnancy April Fools’ jokes aren’t funny to those struggling with infertility.“Secrets finally out, we have a bunny in the oven! @laurenburnham91,” wrote the former Bachelor, 36, in a Sunday, April 1, tweet. In the accompanying photo, a blonde woman — whose face isn’t visible — cradles her baby bump in a bodycon dress. An hour later, Luyendyk returned to Twitter to let his followers know it was just a prank.Not everyone was laughing. “Come on. be better that that. It’s not a joke for many struggling families to get pregnant. It’s extremely expensive and heartbreaking. I wish nothing but the best for Arie and Lauren but this is not funny, it’s cruel,” wrote one woman. Added another: “I was never about to have children due to infertility and a miscarriage. Pregnant isn’t something to joke about.” A third person noted that when the race car driver and 26-year-old sales executive do try to conceive she hopes they “aren’t met with the harsh reality that so many face.”According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly 10 percent of women in the United States ages 15 to 44 have difficulty getting and staying pregnant. See photos of Arie and Lauren together:Instead of apologizing, Luyendyk responded with a recipe for a puffy baked treat in his Instagram Story. “Sorry if you were offended, but we really are making a Dutch baby,” he captioned a photo from Cook’s Country cookbook. Luyendyk isn’t doing much to up his likability. As Bachelor watchers know, the reality star proposed to fan favorite publicist Becca Kufrin only to break up with her two months later. Then, just 24 hours after filming the heartbreaking, unedited split, he reunited with runner-up Burnham. The engaged couple recently moved in together in Scottsdale, Arizona  and documented their road trip from Burnham’s place in Virginia Beach, Virginia.Meanwhile, Luyendyk and Burnham aren’t the only public figures who have received backlash for their April Fools’ joke. In 2016, Gwen Stefani learned her lesson when she Instagrammed a photo of an ultrasound with the caption: “It’s a girl.” RELATD: How long every "Bachelor" relationship lasted:Read more... Permalink | Email this | Linking Blogs | Comments

Why HIV rates for teens in West and Central Africa have reached alarming rates

Filed under: News, World News, CrisisIn parts of Africa, the HIV/AIDS rate is growing at an alarming rate: 170 people are infected with HIV every day.Funding issues makes matters worse and access to treatment on some regions is lax or non-existent. This leaves HIV-positive children and adolescents at a disadvantage.It’s a crisis and teens 15 to 19-years-old are among West and Central Africa hardest hit according to the Los Angeles Times—making up 80% of the infected population on the continent who are not receiving critical antiretroviral meds.–Did family intentionally drive off a cliff killing their children?—According to the most recent UNICEF and UNAIDS research, 35% of those infected teens died between 2010 and 2016.In other areas across the region, those death numbers fell but not in West and Central Africa because of funding issues. Nigeria is reportedly the hardest hit area because it’s heavily populated and it is the second-largest population of HIV-positive people in the world (South Africa has the largest), reports the LATimes.  Sadly most of the funding go toward helping adults survive the disease. However, 190 million who are infected are under the age of 30.  —Witnesses forever changed by MLK’s final days —West and Central Africa lagging behind on both treatment and prevention. Many young people now dying of AIDS in the region may have been born HIV-positive but have not had the resources to diagnose and treat the virus before it was too late.Dr. Anslem Audu, an HIV/AIDS specialist working with UNICEF in Nigeria, said some parents, fear revealing their children’s HIV status which prevents them from getting much-needed antiretrovirals and help if they don’t disclose.—Slavery was just outlawed in Mauritania in 1981 and slavers today are still getting sent to prison—“Why don’t they want to disclose?” Audu said. “Because they don’t want the child to speak out and let people know he is HIV-positive, then neighbors will know there is HIV in the family and before you know it, they will start stigmatizing them.”Read more... Permalink | Email this | Linking Blogs | Comments

'I've seen the Promised Land': How a brush with death shaped Martin Luther King's message

Filed under: News, US, Identities & HeroesFifty years ago, on April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr., who preached nonviolent resistance to oppression and war, was shot to death in Memphis. He was 39 years old. He left behind a wife and three children and a nation still riven by the divisions he had devoted his life to healing. Yahoo News takes a look back at his life and his legacy in this special report. Jonathan Darman assesses King as a man not without flaws, but with a passion for justice and a conviction that grace can still be found here among us sinners on earth. Senior Editor Jerry Adler looks back on the fateful last year of King’s life, beginning with his electrifying, and controversial, Riverside Church address against the war in Vietnam. National Correspondent Holly Bailey goes back to Selma, Ala., whose poverty moved King to increasingly turn his focus to economic justice, and finds not much has changed in the years since. Reporter Michael Walsh looks at how King almost died in an attack a decade earlier, and how the knowledge of his mortality shaped his ministry and message.Read more... Permalink | Email this | Linking Blogs | Comments
