On fertility rates.

Why does cable TV have so many live reality TV programs about preteens who are pregnant, or people who have  twins, quintuplets, or sextuplets?

As though fucking and pregnancy is rare.

It's should be simple - more consumers!

The last employees departed from the science division of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy last week, leaving the division completely unstaffed, according to a Friday report by CBS News.

CBS News reported, citing unnamed sources, that the division was unstaffed as of Friday, but noted the White House may assign the policy subjects previously handled by the division to other staff within the office.

Eleanor Celeste, formerly the office’s assistant director for biomedical and forensic sciences, tweeted a farewell on Friday.
