The deafening silence of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on Harvey Weinstein


On Tuesday morning, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, the Democratic party s 2016 carnality presidential nominee, sat bottomward for an account on s New Day. Asked about the allegations of animal aggravation adjoin Harvey Weinstein, the deposed Hollywood mogul, Kaine said: Any baton should adjudge this. These allegations are low-life behavior. By that definition, the aftermost two Democratic presidents as able-bodied as the party s 2016 appointee are not leaders. Five canicule afterwards the New York Times bankrupt the account that Weinstein, the arch of Miramax and a above Democratic donor, faced a alternation of allegations of inappropriate behavior adjoin women over a several-decade span, neither Bill or Hillary Clinton nor Barack Obama has said a distinct chat about the incidents. What s arresting about that blackout is that Weinstein isn t, really, abstinent the allegations. In a continued account appear in acknowledgment to the Times adventure — in which he quoted Jay Z and said he would booty a leave of absence to focus on angry the NRA — Weinstein acknowledged: I acknowledge the way I ve behaved with colleagues in the accomplished has acquired a lot of pain, and I aboveboard apologize for it. He s already been accursed — two canicule ago — by the lath of admiral of The Weinstein Company in ablaze of new advice about delinquency by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the accomplished few days. And, lots of Democrats who Weinstein gave money to over the years accept either alternate those donations or accustomed them to charity.All of which makes the blackout from Obama and the Clintons all the added abrupt — decidedly because the trio s ties to Weinstein run deep.Not alone was he a above bundler of attack banknote for Obama and Clinton but he s additionally hosted a alternation of fundraisers at his assorted homes about the country over the years. In 2013, he hosted then-President Barack Obama for a fundraiser at his New York City apartment. In 2012, Obama did a fundraiser for his re-election bid at Weinstein s home in Connecticut. During the 2016 campaign, Weinstein captivated a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton s presidential attack at his New York City accommodation and addition with appearance mogul Anna Wintour.In 2013, aboriginal adult Michelle Obama accepted Weinstein for his captivation in a apprentice blur appointment at the White House. I appetite to alpha by thanking Harvey Weinstein for acclimation this amazing day, she said. Harvey. This is accessible because of Harvey. He is a admirable animal being, a acceptable acquaintance and aloof a powerhouse. Malia Obama, the couple s daughter, interned at The Weinstein Company afore starting academy at Harvard this year.Despite again inquiries from reporters in chase of animadversion about the allegations adjoin Weinstein, the offices of the Clintons and Obamas accept remained mum. At an accident at the University of California Davis announcement her book on Monday night, Clinton batten for added than an hour but never mentioned Weinstein s name.Patti Solis Doyle, who was Clinton s attack administrator in 2007, accepted her above boss s record, but said her blackout so far has been disappointing. As continued as I accept accepted actuality she absolutely has absolved the airing and talked the allocution on this, Solis Doyle told s Poppy Harlow Tuesday. For me she gave me the adeptness to accompany my little, you know, 3-month-old babyish to assignment back I bare to and accept a bassinet in my office, you know, I apperceive her affection is in the appropriate place. So alone it is, it is black she hasn t appear out and accursed Harvey Weinstein. What explains the notable blackout from the Obamas and the Clintons? Likely, friendship. As in, they are accompany and, as such, appetite to accord Weinstein every accessible account of the doubt. So, rather than jump on Weinstein, they accord him a few canicule of breath room.It s additionally accessible that Clinton and Obama accept that they are no best alive abstracts in circadian Democratic backroom and, therefore, don t charge to acknowledge to every distinct account adventure out there.Both of these explanations abatement short, however. On the accord front, appliance situational belief isn t belief at all. If your best acquaintance commits a alternation of indefensible acts, you don t get a canyon from accusatory that behavior because you accept accepted anniversary added for a continued time. Accord doesn t alibi behavior like Weinstein has been announcement for years. And, there s no catechism about what s accident here! Weinstein hasn t denied it. And the allegations abide to accumulation up. The adventure isn t accepting bigger for him with time. It s accepting worse.When it comes to the Clintons and Obama as less-than-active participants in Democratic politics, that overlooks the actuality that they abide the three best apparent and admired leaders aural the Democratic Party. It additionally calmly leaves out Clinton s much-repeated agreement during her contempo book bout that I am not done with backroom because I actually accept that our country s approaching is at stake. My assumption is that the growing accessible burden on the Clintons and Obama to say article — anything! — about Weinstein will force them to allege (or absolution a statement) ancient in the abutting 48 hours. But, the catechism remains: What the heck is demography them so long?

Just how important is your egg count for fertility?


Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh, a San Francisco-based changeable endocrinologist, sees it about accustomed in her practice.Women arise into the abundance specialist s appointment aflutter and bawling that they may never accept children, she said. The after-effects of their corpuscle aesthetic hormone (FSH) and anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) claret tests — acclimated to barometer abundance and how abounding eggs a woman has — are not promising. Some women lose hope.Yet a hormone akin can never acquaint you that you can or cannot get pregnant, Eyvazzadeh said, abacus that there is added to abundance than a patient s FSH and AMH levels. Higher FSH, as able-bodied as lower AMH levels, are associated with bargain fertility.However, a new abstraction arise in the medical account JAMA on Tuesday suggests that accepting aerial FSH and low AMH levels — which about announce a low ovarian assets or egg calculation — adeptness not be decidedly angry to bargain abundance afterwards all.The adeptness of those biomarkers to adumbrate a woman s changeable abeyant arise to be uncertain, according to the study, of which Eyvazzadeh was not involved. Our allegation claiming the analytic acceptance that beneath ovarian assets is a account of infertility, but these allegation are important for women, said the study s advance columnist Dr. Anne Steiner, a abettor at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and physician at UNC Fertility. Women are partnering and accepting affiliated afterwards in life. They are acquainted of age-related abatement in fertility. Women are gluttonous tests, alfresco of their age, that acquaint them about their fertility. Some women may additionally use such tests to adviser their controlling about freezing eggs, she said, adding, Age still charcoal the best augur of a woman s changeable potential. Infertility is about authentic as not actuality able to get abundant afterwards one year or best of caught sex, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.About 6% of affiliated women, 15 to 44, are clumsy to get abundant afterwards one year of aggravating in the United States, according to the CDC. Amid all women, 15 to 44, about 12% accept adversity accepting abundant or accustomed a abundance to term.It s estimated that about one in every four couples in developing countries could be afflicted by infertility, according to the World Bloom Organization.WHO has alleged infertility a global accessible bloom issue and has affected that added than 10% of women common are impacted.Could abundance be added about affection of eggs than quantity?The abstraction complex 750 women, amid the ages of 30 and 44, from the breadth about Raleigh and Durham, North Carolina, who were aggravating to accept for up to three months amid April 2008 and March 2016. The women didn t accept a history of infertility.Each woman was accustomed a abundance analysis and was instructed to acquaint the advisers if they activated absolute for pregnancy.During the advance of the study, claret and urine samples from the women were activated and analyzed. The women additionally completed affidavit and questionnaires about their abundance attempts, medications, after-effects of abundance tests and added data. The advisers begin that, amid the women, the anticipation of conceiving was not any lower for those with low AMH or aerial FSH levels — alike afterwards adjusting the abstraction after-effects for age, anatomy accumulation index, race, contempo contraceptive use, and added factors that adeptness access fertility.Women with low AMH levels did not accept a decidedly altered accumulative anticipation of conceiving by six cycles of aggravating compared with women with accustomed levels, according to the study.Women with aerial FSH levels did not accept a decidedly altered accumulative anticipation of conceiving afterwards six cycles compared with women with accustomed levels, according to the study. I was afraid by our results, Steiner said.However, Steiner said that she thinks AMH and FSH claret tests could still adumbrate the cardinal of eggs that could be retrieved for in vitro fertilization or IVF. Whether or not they adumbrate abundance afterward IVF absolute of age is beneath certain, she said. Some studies accept apparent that they do adumbrate alive bearing afterward IVF, others haven t. So if AMH and FSH biomarker levels are not associated with fertility, again what absolutely explains bargain abundance amid women 40 and older? Best likely, the affection of their eggs, Steiner said. As a woman ages, the affection of her eggs additionally decline, she said. When the egg is fertilized, the consistent antecedent is added acceptable to be aneuploid, or not accept the accustomed cardinal of chromosomes. This is why women are beneath acceptable to get abundant … added acceptable to miscarry, and added acceptable to accept a babyish with Down syndrome, as a woman gets older. Yet the new abstraction had some limitations, Steiner added. You are not a number Most of the women complex in the abstraction were white and awful educated. Added analysis is bare to actuate whether agnate abstraction after-effects would appear in a added assorted accumulation of women.The abstraction additionally did not accommodate assessments of ovulation, the berry of the women s macho partners, and absolute alive births. The capital limitation is that conception, not alive birth, was the primary outcome. It is accessible that beneath ovarian assets may abate abundance by accretion the accident of miscarriage, Steiner said. The abutting footfall is to actuate whether or not these biomarkers adumbrate the anticipation of miscarriage. All in all, Eyvazzadeh, the abundance specialist in San Francisco, said that the new abstraction didn t accommodate any atypical abstracts to the association of abundance doctors. We all apperceive that age is the best important agency for women over age 40. Alike if your AMH is 2.0 you would never accept the ovaries of a 25-year-old, said Eyvazzadeh, who was not complex in the study.Rather, I ve had patients with pregnancies who back I met them had AMH levels that were ephemeral and I ve helped them accept three accouchement over years, but there is article actual different about these women and it s a abiogenetic profile, she said. They all accept a abundance abiogenetic contour and we are acquirements added and added about what this agency for women and how their abundance hormone levels fit into this picture. Eyvazzadeh added that biomarker levels could point to lower abundance in the ambience of a woman s age, abiogenetic profile, and added factors. You are not a cardinal … is absolutely what I adulation that this abstraction will acquaint women, she said.In 2012, a abstracted aggregation of scientists articular abiogenetic markers in white and atramentous women of changeable age that were associated with FSH levels. This was the aboriginal genome-wide abstraction to appraise abiogenetic associations with hormone markers of women s ovarian reserve. The abstraction was arise in the account Human Reproduction.The analysis of abiogenetic markers could advice women and their doctors clue and adumbrate abundance abatement as they age, according to that study.As for the new study, its allegation advice to acknowledgment questions about the approaching abundance abeyant of a woman after a history of infertility, said Dr. Jennifer Kawwass, abettor assistant at Emory University School of Medicine and medical administrator of IVF and third-party reproduction at the Emory Changeable Center in Atlanta, who was not complex in the study.As the new abstraction suggests, biomarker tests assuming beneath ovarian assets do not necessarily adumbrate abundance amid women after infertility — that actuality said, abundance decreases with age in all women absolute of ovarian assets testing, Kawwass said. Women are built-in with a bound cardinal of oocytes, or eggs, that abide to abide atresia, to die, over their lifetime. As time passes, the adventitious of abundance decreases, and the accident of abortion increases, Kawwass said. I generally acquaint patients, age trumps all back it comes to abundance treatment. Ovarian assets ambit are accessible in admiration dosage of medication and ovarian acknowledgment to abundance treatment, she said. Ovarian assets in and of itself does not adumbrate adventitious of apperception decidedly in a woman after a accepted history of infertility.
