    Forbes ^ | 09/16/2011 | Joel Kotkin
    To President Barack Obama and many other Democrats, Europe continues to exercise something of a fatal attraction. The “European dream” embraced by these politicians — as well as by many pundits, academics and policy analysts — usually consists of an America governed by an expanded bureaucracy, connected by high-speed trains and following a tough green energy policy. One hopes that the current crisis gripping the E.U. will give even the most devoted Europhiles pause about the wisdom of such mimicry. Yet the deadliest European disease the U.S. must avoid is that of persistent demographic decline. The gravity of Europe’s demographic...

    The number of babies treated at Florida hospitals for drug-withdrawal syndrome continued to skyrocket last year, further evidence of the far-reaching impact of the state's prescription-drug epidemic. In 2010, 1,374 babies were born addicted to drugs because their mothers were users — a 42 percent increase from the year prior, according to new Agency for Health Care Administration records obtained by the Orlando Sentinel. "The numbers are staggering," said Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. "And especially when you have the opportunity to see one of these babies and know what the baby goes through, all they suffer."

    When it comes to names, everybody's got an opinion. But while figuring out what names people like is pretty simple -- the U.S. Social Security Administration keeps a list of the most popular baby names each year -- figuring out what people hate is trickier. It turns out that in the case of names, love and hate aren't mutually exclusive. A new informal survey of the most disliked names in America finds that popularity often breeds backlash, as a quick track to baby-name fame seems to also trigger hate for that name. Among the most-hated "trendy" names are Jayden, Brayden,...

    Australian ethicist working at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics claims that humanity has a “moral obligation” to use in vitro fertilization (IVF) to select the most intelligent embryos for the good of society, with the obvious implication that the less intelligent “surplus” embryos should simply be destroyed. Professor Julian Savulescu of Melbourne made the statement while commenting on an economic modeling research paper by Oxford University ethicists Andres Sandberg and Nick Bostrom, who claim that a rise in humanity’s IQ would result in a reduction in poverty, welfare dependency, crowding of jails, school dropout rates, out-of-wedlock births, and...

    The scandal and heartache of teen pregnancy has been exploited by producers of popular prime-time TV, who have made stories of 16-year-olds stumbling through accelerated adolescence into marketable drama. Likewise, news media have scrutinized the teen birth phenomenon for some time. The truly shocking and underreported story, however, is that of unmarried 20-something parents. While 21 percent of children born outside of marriage are to teen mothers, more than 60 percent of unwed births occur to women in their 20s. It is not the young girls studying for the SAT or fretting over their prom prospects that make up the...

Scalia, who is opposed to the notion of an “evolving” or “living” Constitution, told interviewer Calvin Massey that by giving some of the “necessarily broad” provisions of the Constitution an “evolving meaning,” these provisions fail to do their job, which is to put in place limitations on what society can or cannot do.

    *** The black community's 72 percent rate eclipses that of most other groups: 17 percent of Asians, 29 percent of whites, 53 percent of Hispanics and 66 percent of Native Americans were born to unwed mothers in 2008, the most recent year for which government figures are available. The rate for the overall U.S. population was 41 percent. This issue entered the public consciousness in 1965, when a now famous government report by future senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan described a "tangle of pathology" among blacks that fed a 24 percent black "illegitimacy" rate. The white rate then was 4 percent....

    Conservatives despise him. Many liberals remain stubbornly unimpressed. Now, even babies — sweet, lovable, barely sentient babies — have turned on President Obama, the man with whom they once invested so much hope. Though he tries time and again to connect with these impressionable young citizens, it is all in vain, for his overtures are met only with cold shoulders. Tiny, cold shoulders.

    Women tried to steal $256 worth of clothes from JCPenney Two women's well planned scheme to steal clothes from a JCPenney was almost executed flawlessly, except for one minor detail. They forgot the 10-month-old infant they brought along for the caper. Because of the oversight, Crystal Whitaker, 23, and her 16-year old accomplice were arrested over the weekend. Whitaker was slapped with a slew of charges, including child neglect, child abuse and theft for the crime, which took place Friday at a JCPenney in West Palm Beach, the Palm Beach Post reported. The two women brought the baby along as...

    This is just awesome!!! From the Jefferson City News Tribune: HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) — Army Capt. David Cooper was in Afghanistan when his daughter was born in Missouri.

David and his wife Laurie used Skype and, though they had some trouble connecting throughout the day, it worked perfectly for two hours before Charlotte Rose was born. Laurie says she and hospital staff were able to see the sun come up in Afghanistan as the baby was being born just after...

    Research involving one million births over 20 years found that those born outside the normal nine to five Monday to Friday working hours were more likely to die. The principle cause of death in these infants was lack of oxygen which can be due to a lack of senior clinical staff to spot the problem and react quickly. The researchers from Cambridge University said the overall increased risk was small, the difference of one or two extra deaths per 10,000 live babies born, but extra staffing would minimise the problem. It comes after research published last month found patients were...

    Alternate headline: “Nervous looks now being exchanged in Republican corridors of power.” To listen to the media, you’d think opposition to birthright citizenship is the province of alleged fringe-dwellers like Rand Paul (and George Will!). Not so: Per a Rasmussen poll taken last week, 58 percent of likely voters oppose it. That’s not exactly what Brewer’s talking about, though. Her point is that even if a kid is an American citizen — and presumably, even if he was born and raised here and speaks only English — we don’t cut his parents a break on amnesty. If deporting them means...
