Motherhood is not a gender stereotype – it’s science

first_imgMercatorNet 11 May 2018In a report to Family First New Zealand published today, leading American family scholar and father of five, Glenn Stanton, writes about the distinct and vital contribution of the mother to a child’s wellbeing. Drawing on common experience and the findings of contemporary research, Stanton reminds us about Why Mothers Matter. The following is an excerpt from the report, published here with the permission of Family First NZ.The mother’s orientation towards the childGood mothers and fathers are both certainly very physical with their children. However, mothers are physical in different ways to fathers – ways which stem from their basic nature as women.From moment one, what is it that you, as a mother, will do with your child? Take any cultural or gender stereotypes you might have and put them aside to think about this in the larger human experience across cultures and time. Is there a common answer? Yes, there is – and it has nothing to do with any particular cultural gender caricature that feminist studies professors will warn you about. It has everything to do with the essence of every good mother.As soon as a child emerges from the womb, the overwhelming first inclination and physical activity of the mother is to take the crying, quivering newborn close to her and put it to her breast for comfort and sustenance. No mother need to be taught that this should be done. That desire flows from her as strong as any emotion or force she has ever experienced. Everything within her needs to hold and comfort her child. Her body itself, and not just her emotions, is reacting to her baby’s cry. A mother’s brain viscerally and physically responds at this moment.In one interesting experiment conducted in Italy, men and women were placed in a brain-scan machine. The researchers played two different sounds intermittently, with periods of silence in between. One sound was just white noise, the other was an infant’s hungry cry. The subjects were not informed beforehand that the sounds would be played, so that anticipation would not be a factor. Their brains were observed for internal responses – neural firings – to these sounds. During periods of silence and when white noise was played, the brain responses of males or females were identical. But, as the researchers explained, “the brain activity of women and men differed considerably” when they both heard the cries of a baby.The men showed no significant response. But women did, regardless of whether they were mothers or not. The female brain sends signals throughout the body when it hears a baby crying for food and comfort. It’s natural. In fact, these scholars reported something else that’s natural. When the father seems oblivious or indifferent to your baby’s cries, it’s not because he is selfish or uncaring. It’s that his brain is actually wired that way. The Italian researchers explain, “In functional terms, this finding suggests that, whereas the female brain during hunger cries interrupts on-going mind-wandering, the male brain continues in self-reflection” even if he is reflecting on nothing in particular. In other words, dad’s brain can remain unaffected by his child’s cry.It is a remarkable and frustrating quirk of nature — but it’s not his fault. Having said that, fathers must learn to be attentive and respond more quickly to the child’s cries.Mum’s body does not just respond to the baby’s cry. Science also shows us that something significant happens in the deepest interiors of the bodies of both mother and child during the intimacy of nursing. It is not just the functioning of the breast and delivery of nutrition to the baby. Mothers who have more skin-to-skin interaction with their child – including breast feeding – are shown in longitudinal, control-group studies to experience reduced postpartum depression and overall psychological stress, increased uterine health, protection against Type II diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and improved menstruation.In short, the mother’s orientation is unmistakably toward the child. This is hardwired and hard-driven. Others who seek to interrupt it will often do so at their own peril.A new father is certainly interested in the child itself, but he is also very interested in his child in relation to the rest of world. More so than the mother. This is an important distinction. Dad is more likely to celebrate the child with the rest of his community as a badge of honour and excitement. Curiously, he considers the newborn as his accomplishment even though he felt no pain or broke no sweat! This is why fathers have long passed out cigars to their friends. It’s about his relationship as a new father to the larger community, and a celebration of the event of the arrival of his new child.https://www.mercatornet.com/mobile/view/motherhood-is-not-a-gender-stereotype-its-scienceWhy mothers matterSunLive 13 May 2018     “Mum’s femininity not only gave birth to and nourished her children, but helps them develop into the unique, healthy and influential human beings society requires. “New Zealand cannot exist without her. She does what no other person in the life of every human being can do.”The above comments form part of a report released by Family First NZ to celebrate Mother’s Day this year.‘Why Mothers Matter’ was written by Glenn Stanton, the director of Global Family Formation Studies at’ Focus on the Family’ in Colorado Springs, USA.Family First NZ spokesperson Sue Reid says in a world that seems fixed on diminishing the unique roles of each parent, the report draws on extensive research from child psychologists and from child development science, highlighting the fact that mothers are different to fathers in what they bring to parenthood.“Our modern society seems bent on equality but our roles are different. Stanton addresses in this report the need to acknowledge that each parent contributes to the success and function of the family in different ways. Mothers are crucial for both sons and daughters. They not only role-model for their own daughters but they influence a son to be wired to care for and protect women around them.”As a mother herself, Sue says this research paper is an important commentary. “In this ever-changing modern world, it is paramount that we stop, pause in our busy world, and consider the significant role of the mothers in our midst.”The report says mums make makes countless contributions to bringing up their children that are distinct from dad’s way and she is typically not even aware how her special way of loving, caring for, protecting and teaching her children is as distinctive as it is important.READ MORE: https://sunlive.co.nz/news/179479-why-mothers-matter.htmllast_img read more

Liverpool announce double swoop

first_img Sakho played 201 games for PSG, securing the Ligue 1 title with the capital club last season to add to winners’ medals for the 2010 Coupe de France and the 2008 Coupe de la Ligue. But now the 23-year-old, who can operate in central defence or at left-back and has won 14 caps for Les Bleus, cannot wait to get started for his new team. “I’m delighted to be here,” he told liverpoolfc.com. “I’d like to thank everyone for the welcome. “I came here because the project that is in place at Liverpool interests me. I’m really looking forward to playing my first game.” He continued: “I’m really looking forward to cracking on with work and I can’t wait to get on (the) pitch. “I know the Liverpool fans are fantastic and while I was in France, it was clear for me to see they are amongst the best in England.” Ilori was equally thrilled to have arrived on Merseyside. “It feels great being a Liverpool player – coming to the Premier League has always been a dream for me,” the 20-year-old said. Press Association The pair, who watched Sunday’s 1-0 Barclays Premier League win over Manchester United from the directors’ box at Anfield, penned their deals after passing medicals at the club’s Melwood training complex. They take the total number of players brought in by Reds boss Brendan Rodgers this summer to seven, following Kolo Toure, Iago Aspas, Luis Alberto, Simon Mignolet and Aly Cissokho. Liverpool have confirmed the signings of France defender Mamadou Sakho from Paris St-Germain and Portuguese centre-back Tiago Ilori from Sporting Lisbon. “I’m going to try to achieve everything I can. I want to play as much as possible and we’ll see what the future holds. I will give my all and try my best to help the team.” The 6ft 3in London-born centre-back has represented Portugal at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 level, and played at Anfield for Sporting in the 2011-12 NextGen Series. “I know the history of the club and the Premier League is the best league in the world, in my opinion,” he added. “Liverpool have a great team and I think it’s the place for me to be at the moment. “I know there have been some great teams here in the past and the club has won a lot of trophies and I want to be a part of it.” The double swoop will no doubt add to the feeling of optimism around the club, who have started the Premier League season with three straight wins. Victor Moses was alongside Ilori and Sakho at Sunday’s game ahead of their intended arrivals. Speaking after the match, Rodgers said: “We hope they can be completed. “We need that depth and more numbers. If we can get them over the line, they are quality players. “And having competition for places is a nice problem to have.” last_img read more

Softball: Badgers prepare for double header against Big Ten leading Gophers

first_imgIt is getting to be that time of the season for the University of Wisconsin Badgers softball team. They piled the wins on early, then hit a rough patch at the beginning of Big Ten conference play. Now the Badgers (27-8, 6-6 Big Ten), who sit at seventh in the Big Ten standings, will have arguably their toughest matchup of the season, the Minnesota Golden Gophers in a double header competition Wednesday in Madison.Wisconsin will play host to a Minnesota team that has been nearly unbeatable all year. Sitting at a 38-3 record overall and a 10-1 conference record, the Gophers have essentially ensured a ticket to the NCAA tournament.The Badgers will have to play near-perfect softball if they want to knock off the fifth-ranked team in the nation and leads the Big Ten in hitting and pitching and whose average margin of victory is over six runs.Carlini brings home UW’s first Sullivan AwardIt’s official: University of Wisconsin volleyball’s graduating senior Lauren Carlini won the AAU James E. Sullivan Award Tuesday night in Read…For pitching, Minnesota sends out their ace, Sara Groenewegen, who owns a 19-2 record with an ERA of .63. In 22 appearances, Groenewegen has surrendered 11 runs. Up next, they have Amber Fiser who has an 8-0 record and a 1.39 ERA.If a team can manage to score enough runs against Minnesota’s staff, who has only surrendered six runs three times, they still have to shut down the lineup that possesses a .345 batting average and has four players in the top 15 in the Big Ten.Infielder, Makenna Partain, has the highest team batting average with .413, but catcher, Kendyl Lindaman, bats .408 and has 14 home runs.Fortunately for Wisconsin, they have the best hitter in the Big Ten in Chloe Miller and two starting pitchers in Kaitlyn Menz and Kirsten Stevens that account for all but one of the team’s wins and have an average ERA of 1.99.Wisconsin will need maximum production from their top five hitters, Kelsey Jenkins, Miller, Brooke Wyderski, Sara Novak and Stephanie Lombardo. Those four hitters average a .365 batting average and combine for 155 RBIs.Men’s basketball: Experts see potential NBA futures for Hayes, KoenigWhile Nigel Hayes garnered most of the preseason attention regarding a future basketball career in the NBA, Bronson Koenig quietly Read…The Badgers are not a team that is going to win with the long ball, but Miller, Jenkins and Wyderksi, who rank in the top 15 in the Big Ten for on base percentage, are always creating scoring opportunities. Being the first on the board will be important as the Badgers are 21-4 when scoring the game’s first runs.Menz and Stevens will also need to keep Wisconsin in the game and not dig too deep of a hole. The Badgers’ pitching staff pitches for contact ranking only eighth for strikeouts in the Big Ten, which means there will be no room for error in the field for a Wisconsin team that averages 1.4 errors a game.The first game of the doubleheader will start at 1 p.m. at Goodman Diamond with the second game following shortly after the conclusion of the first.last_img read more

Magic Johnson, Larry Bird to get Lifetime Achievement Award

He served a short stint as coach (1993-94) and recently stepped down as team president after two seasons. His larger achievements since his playing days have come in the business world as CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises.Bill Russell was the first Lifetime Achievement winner in 2017 and Oscar Robertson was honored last year. NEW YORK — Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, whose coast-to-coast rivalry in the 1980s propelled the NBA to a new level of popularity, will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award.The Hall of Famers and 1992 U.S. Olympic teammates will receive the award on June 24 at the NBA Awards, the league and Turner Sports announced Wednesday.The honor comes on the 40th anniversary of their meeting in the 1979 NCAA championship game, when Johnson’s Michigan State team beat Bird’s Indiana State squad. That is still the highest-rated game on television in college basketball history.The two saw plenty more of each other across the next decade after Johnson went to the Lakers and Bird to the Boston Celtics. The Lakers won five championships in the 1980s and the Celtics won three with their teams squaring off in the NBA Finals in 1984, 1985 and 1987, and the interest they drew forged a friendship and helped the league move past its struggle for mainstream attention and set the stage for basketball to become one of the world’s most popular sports.last_img read more

Real Madrid gives Odriozola to Bayern Munich until the end of the season

first_imgBoth clubs have made it official without any clauseIn Germany, Álvaro will try to recover the level of the Royal SocietyHe will fight with Achraf, in Dortmund, for a gap for the next course In addition, with this assignment until June 30, without any clause, Madrid will have the option to see if Odriozola can recover the level he showed in the Royal Society and that led him to sign for the picture meringue last season. One way to gain a place in the squad of 20/21, where Carvajal will theoretically continue as the undisputed holder, who will have a direct rival in the Bundesliga, specifically in the great rival of Bayern, Borussia Dortmund.In the fight they maintain for the title, together with Leipzig and Monchengladbach, Achraf Hakimi stands out within the yellow club. The Moroccan defender accumulates good minutes in his assignment in Dortmund and at the end of this campaign he also ends his assignment in Madrid, so he will have a career with Odriozola to reach the theoretical position of substitute right back.Odriozola arrived at the Bernabéu in the summer of 2018, after his excellent 17/18 at the Royal Society, but he has never finished curdling. In the shadow of Carvajal, the Donostiarra has had irregular peaks that with Zidane have never finished guaranteeing their confidence. Marked by the defeat against Mallorca, which at the moment is the last this year of the Madrid team, his assignment comes to try to recover the level of Anoeta and return to the club with greater confidence and, why not, may have options to sneak in the list of the Selection for the Eurocopa 2020. Photo: Reuterscenter_img Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have formalized the transfer of Álvaro Odriozola, until the end of the season, to the Bavarian team. A sung exit, which could be the only one of the white club of not moving Mariano or Brahim, and that will give the right back an opportunity to return to count on minutes after being left behind by the excellent level of Dani Carvajal. Odriozola will have a new opportunity in his career, this time under the command of Hansi Flick. The interim coach of Bayern, replacing Kovac, requested reinforcements to the German directive to face the second part of 19/20 and that of the San Sebastian side is an option that allows many variables. In Munich, although Kimmich or Pavard have alternated in the right lane during the last months, the arrival of the Spanish international frees them both so that they can be well in the center of the field, the first, as well as central, the second.last_img read more

Maverley-Hughenden, Jamalco in big clash

first_imgJamalco FC and Maverley-Hughenden FC will face off in a top clash in the Jamaica Football Federation-Charley’s J B Rum Premier League play-offs today at Maverley Complex, starting at 3:30 p.m. In the other game, Granville FC welcome Brazil FC in an interesting encounter at Granville United FC, starting also at 3:30 p.m. With the first-round games to be completed, the teams will be hunting points in order to improve in the four-team play-offs. Jamalco lead the way on six points from two games, followed by Maverley-Hughenden (four), Brazil (one) and Granville United – without a point. Rayon Johnson, head coach of Jamalco, said that the game is crucial. “We want to win against Maverley-Hughenden to move further ahead. If we win, it would be three straight and that would push us closer to a historic berth in next season’s Red Stripe Premier League. We don’t know much about Maverley, but the plan is to shut down the key players.” Jamalco’s main players include captain Erron Brown and Andrew Isaacs. On the other hand, Maverley-Hughenden are fully aware that they need to win at home to maintain a good chance of qualifying. “This is a very important game for us. In the game at home to Brazil, we gave up a late goal as the team lost focus. Now, the intent is to get our first win at home in the play-offs and go on top with seven points,” head coach of Maverley-Hughenden FC Lijyasu Simms told The Sunday Gleaner. Maverley-Hughenden will rely on captain Andrew Peddlar, Wayne Williams, Rohan Williams and veterans Kasai Hinds, Locksley Thompson and Roberto Fletcher for victory. In the other game, Granville and Brazil will be hunting full points in order to stay in contention for the two spots to the Premier League next season. Historic berthlast_img read more

Laurie Foster | Saint Stephen? … MVP boss showing softer side

first_img Judging from all this, as was the case in previous situations, with Asafa Powell, Sherone Simpson, Melaine Walker and so many high profilers, the MVP door is not a revolving one. Once you leave, you stay out – no room for reconsideration or revisit by either party – rough but real. Returning to Jamaica seems to have brought out a change of direction. The hitherto perceived ‘my way or the highway’ super coach is now singing from a different hymn sheet. Regional track and field exclusive website, Trackalerts.com carried a story: ‘Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce could return to MVP’. The thought was fuelled by a Francis comment that did not typify the no-nonsense, no retreat, no return, academically gifted former accountant. “From what I’m hearing, it looks as if things are not as clear-cut as they were before. It seemed clear-cut back in Rio, but it doesn’t seem as clear-cut now,” Francis continued, “we will see what happens.” That final offering at the Airport welcome ceremony, has sparked the sentiment that Francis is on a different path. Could it be one that accommodates a view leading to dialogue? Jamaica, nor for that matter, the world is not awash with coaches of the calibre of a Stephen Francis. He has been vilified in the past for an attitude that can compromise the fortunes of our most talented. A case in point was that anti-camp face off at the 2009 Berlin World Champs that led to a frenzied pull-out of some eventual medalists. It was only astute and assiduous action by some top administrators that saved that day and the nation’s global image. Every Third World nation deserves to have its best athletes and its best coaches working in tandem to achieve best results. If what we are seeing is real, Foster’s Fairplay welcomes the new and refreshed Stephen Francis. • For feedback: Email lauriefoster2012@gmail.com. NO REVOLVING DOOR Is the sport of track and field actually seeing a new Stephen Francis? Talk is that in recent times, most specifically, after the Rio Olympics, the MVP Track Club’s head coach is displaying a softer side to his personality, previously hidden from public view. Foster’s Fairplay has received a few calls on the matter and is compelled to give an ear to what seems to be real chat. The traditionally highly combative Francis is known for his belligerent stance, taking on the sport’s elite thinkers, adamant to illustrate that he should be included in that lot. His open defiance of, aligned with ranting and raving against, certain edicts from top administrators, has become a feature of the highly spirited interaction with the authorities, while on the cusp of major championships. Usually, the point of discussion rests with compulsory pre-competition camps, which the University of Michigan MBA graduate sees as anathema in respect of the needs of his athletes. Immediately after the crowning of MVP’s new sprinting sensation, Elaine Thompson, as the latest Olympic 100m queen, the dethroned Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, amidst all her grace, elegance and charm, dropped a bombshell. She responded to journalists’ queries in a manner that suggested that all did not go well in her preparation for a momentous event. Her chance of becoming the first ever triple-gold medalist in the short sprint, had been shattered. A series of interviews, revealed that coach Francis was being asked to shoulder the blame for a performance that denied Fraser-Pryce a special place in history. Then came what was described as the “Shelly Shocker” with this newspaper’s special projects editor, AndrÈ Lowe, reporting from Rio that “MVP coach Stephen Francis has confirmed that Olympic 100m bronze medallist Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has lost confidence in the programme and is moving on.” Francis responded: “I am in agreement with her that she should try something different.” This was after another alleged statement suggesting that he held up his hand when the question of Shelly-Ann’s not making the historic cut a few weeks earlier was raised. There was an admission of guilt. “Coaches of the disappointed people, like myself have to take the blame, and I accept full blame for Shelly-Ann not performing the way she expected to.”last_img read more
