If you have surgery you can get what is medically called “the products of conception” tested. That means they can chromosomally test your fetus and see what, if anything, was wrong with it. For older patients, patients undergoing IVF, or in my non-medical opinion, any patient, it is a great comfort to find out that something was wrong with the fetus, which is why it didn’t make it. On the other hand, if they find out that there was nothing wrong with the baby—that it was chromosomally normal—you can investigate other solutions to prevent it from recurring.
There are many ways to lose a pregnancy—from the traditional bleeding in the toilet, to a missed miscarriage where you don’t even know that you miscarried, to a blighted ovum where the baby never started growing at all, to an ectopic pregnancy, where the fetus implanted in the wrong place. I’ve had most of them—they all suck, let me tell you—and I’ve learned the important ways to deal with a miscarriage.
This means you just let nature take its course. You wait for the bleeding to start and for the pregnancy to pass. For very early pregnancies, like chemical pregnancies which never registered a heartbeat, this is often the recommended route. My very first miscarriage—where I didn’t really know I was pregnant until the prior day—passed this way, and it felt like a really late period. (Had I not taken three pregnancy tests, that’s what I would have assumed it was.)
ICOs are a form of investment funding wherein startups offer new types of cryptocurrency in exchange for cash or preexisting cryptocoins like Bitcoin or Ethereum. They are currently unregulated in most of the world Investopedia defines them as intended to “bypass the rigorous and regulated capital-raising process required by venture capitalists or banks.” A recent boom in ICOs has seen them surpass early stage venture capital funding in the amount of money raised in the US, CNBC wrote in August , raising worries of a looming bubble as the price of leading cryptocoins like Bitcoin has skyrocketed.
Carlson makes it clear during the segment that he had his kids vaccinated, but again makes this disingenuous claim that it’s important to just keep asking questions about the safety of vaccines. It’s an absurd thing to watch and is a bit like witnessing Carlson have someone on his program who believes that the Earth is flat and is getting outraged that a liberal TV host like John Oliver would poke fun at someone who is “just asking questions” about the flat Earth.
China’s crypto market is huge many tech-savvy residents have bought in as a way to get ahead ( and avoid taxes ). State agency Xinhua recently estimated the Chinese market had raised “$888 million from 655,555 investors during the first half of the year,” TechCrunch added—surely spooking authorities in a country where economic growth is a priority , but one that is closely overseen by regulators.
Vaccines don’t cause autism. But people like liberal activist Robert Kennedy Jr. have been leading the charge to say that they do. John Oliver poked fun at Kennedy in a segment on June 75th , and Tucker Carlson apparently took issue with the HBO host and his fact-check on vaccines safety and people who are trying to confuse the issue. Carlson had Kennedy on his show last night to “just raise questions” about vaccines—something that science has already done again and again.
