Iris - Product Hunt
Today, the team and I are so excited to kickstart the public beta of Iris—your modern day emergency alert platform. Through hospital detection, Iris connects you with your loved ones, and your health data with medical professionals in the critical moment when you need it most—especially when you are mentally or physically unable to provide it yourself.

How Iris works:

-Detects you’re in a hospital, and after 10 minutes reaches out to see if you’re okay via push notification

-If you’re not okay and Iris doesn’t hear back, your emergency contacts will be notified by text message

-Provides medical professionals with your important medical information through your personal health card right on your iPhone screen. This includes your name, health status, spoken language, daily medications, and more!

Iris is in every way a companion to you, your health insurance, and your loved ones. Its goal is to be like any good friend—there when you need it most and whose existence alone is comforting.

We’re currently in public beta in Manhattan and Berlin, but we’re quickly rolling out to other cities. Sign up, check it out, and let us know what you think! Myself and the rest of the team will be here answering any questions you may have about how Iris was born, how it works, and where we’re headed. If we're not in your city yet, sign up to be notified when we launch there!

Powell_Counted_Out_Tables_Figures.pdf (application/pdf Object)
The Russell Sage Foundation released these and many other charts and tables from the book, so it’s definitely worth a look if you’re interested in how Americans think about the family. Overall, the authors found that definitions of the family were becoming more inclusive. Presumably this trend has continued and even accelerated since the 2006 survey, given how attitudes have shifted on a number of issues involving gay and lesbian rights in the past few years.

Phony "mommy wars" avoid real issues for women - CNN.com
Barbara Risman: But there is a serious issue hidden in the silliness of the alleged mommy wars, and it is the contradictory, conflicting beliefs we have about the value of taking time to care for other people. Who should take care of young people and their grandparents, and how should they be rewarded? We claim to value families, but we don't really value what it takes to care for them. Let me give you some examples:

Abstinence, Antichrist and teen births « Family Inequality
…increasing emphasis on abstinence education is positively correlated with teenage pregnancy and birth rates. This trend remains significant after accounting for socioeconomic status, teen educational attainment, ethnic composition of the teen population, and availability of Medicaid waivers for family planning services in each state. These data show clearly that abstinence-only education as a state policy is ineffective in preventing teenage pregnancy and may actually be contributing to the high teenage pregnancy rates in the U.S.

Picnics or Porn: The Great Debate of Men and Romantic Love — The Good Men Project
Up until now, it’s been easy to say that men simply don’t care about romance. We’ve believed for centuries that men are only focused on the end goal and all that champagne and roses just get in the way of reaching it. Women are frequently reminded not to make the mistake of assuming their partner wants to cuddle and/or confuse sex and love when it comes to a man.

17 minute Podcast on How our brothers and sisters shape who we are.....
Despite the obviously somewhat common experience of sibling relationships, it’s an area that has largely been ignored within social science, which has tended to focus on vertical kinship relations (parent –> child) to the exclusion of lateral kinships relations (child –> child). It’s a weird oversight and one which Katherine’s work is addressing in an interesting and sensitive way.
