In MAKE UP, 18-year-old Ruth (Molly Windsor) arrives at a holiday park in southern England to spend the summer with her boyfriend, Tom (Joseph Quinn). But, it turns out day-to-day life is less exciting than anticipated and the time she's able to spend with Tom is monotonous and tense. Increasingly Ruth is drawn to fellow employee Jade (Stefanie Martini), whose vibrant spirit and lust for life leads her to experiment with wigs and make up, and explore her identity. As the two spend more time together, Ruth realizes her feelings run deeper than friendship and she struggles to understand and accept her same-sex attraction.
Make Up is a fantastic debut feature from director Claire Oakley that manages to straddle multiple genres. What at first presents as an eerie thriller gradually becomes a drama about self-discovery and freedom that is handled with an intimate and wildly creative touch by Oakley. Filmed mostly in muted tones, with frequent moments of stillness and quiet, the feeling of isolation and claustrophobia mixed with ominous visions and noises create a heightened state of tension just waiting to be cut.Windsor makes for a captivating lead, who keeps her cards close to her chest as she navigates the confusing terrain of questioning her sexuality. Subdued pinks and oranges evolve into deep reds in dreamlike flashes that prove a stark contrast to the dreary surrounding environment. This creates an intriguing visual style that will pull more patient viewers into a movie that is somehow both bold and delicate in equal measure -- and a promising debut from a fresh new British filmmaker.
Multiracial and Hispanic Asians comprise 14% and 3% of the Asian population in the U.S., respectively. Those who identify as Asian and White make up a large majority (70%) of non-Hispanic multiracial Asians. Of the 19 origin groups included in this analysis, Japanese Americans are most likely to identify as multiracial non-Hispanic (32% do so). Around one-in-five Filipinos (18%) and 15% of Koreans also identify as multiracial non-Hispanic.

Some people try to make up for a lack of sleep by sleeping more on their days off. A research team studied this strategy for two weeks in 36 men and women. After three nights of normal sleep, the participants were split into three groups.
In the Americas, drug use has emerged as a significant contributor to both disability and death. There was a nearly threefold increase in deaths from drug use disorders in the Americas between 2000 and 2019. This region is also the only one for which\\r\\n drug use disorder is a top 10 contributor to healthy life-years lost due to premature deaths and disability, while in all other regions, drug use does not make the top 25.

OBServ also has implications that extend far beyond vision loss. This project provides hope that once other parts of the brain are fully mapped, it may be possible to design equally innovative systems to help make life easier for people with other disabilities and conditions.
The big picture: For the first time, millennials will make up a smaller share of the electorate than they did in the last presidential election, even as the generation's numbers continue to grow due to immigration.

A story on A1 Monday about Americans immigrating to Mexico included a paragraph that gave incorrect information on the number of Mexicans who are unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. in relation to other groups of unauthorized immigrants. Mexicans no longer make up the majority of those immigrants when compared with others groups combined. But they are still the largest group when comparing groups individually.
For approximately $10.60 per capita annually in LMICs, or about $4.80 more per capita than current costs, all women of reproductive age would receive the pregnancy-related and STI care that they need; all newborns would receive essential, lifesaving care during and just after birth; and women would receive the contraceptive services they need to be able to decide whether and when to have children. These gains would address substantial health burdens in LMICs and provide good value for money. In addition, the interventions that make up this service package have proven feasible to implement in diverse settings.
The speed at which countries can expand provision of high-quality sexual and reproductive health care will vary greatly and will depend on their health system's starting point and capacity for making needed improvements. Not acting at all would result in high costs, financially, developmentally and from a human rights perspective. By investing in proven sexual and reproductive health interventions, countries can make greater progress toward their national health and development goals, and toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
The cost increase associated with moving from current levels of contraceptive care to providing quality services to all women who need them mainly reflects the magnitude of the investments needed to expand programs and systems capacity and improve the quality of care. The improvements (and associated investments) needed are largest in the poorest countries, where health care systems are weakest and unmet need is highest. Investments in programs and systems will be essential for all women who need modern contraception, so they can make an informed choice about which methods to use, obtain counseling on how to use those methods effectively and receive continuous supplies as needed. These investments would also help remove barriers faced by economically disadvantaged communities and marginalized groups, such as young people and people living with disabilities or HIV/AIDS. Contraceptive services should be available to all people and free from discrimination and stigma.4
Despite progress in recent decades to make pregnancy and delivery safer, tens of millions of women in LMICs have an unmet need for maternal health care. Of the 127 million women who have a live birth each year, the following numbers of women experience gaps in essential services:45
The reduction in unintended pregnancies would make improvements in pregnancy-related and newborn care more affordable. Providing health care for women with unintended pregnancies (whether the pregnancy ends in live birth, miscarriage, stillbirth or abortion), as well as for their newborns, currently costs $10.0 billion annually (Figure 4.3). But some pregnant women and newborns who need care do not receive it, and others receive inadequate care. If all women with unintended pregnancies and their newborns were to receive the recommended care, the cost of care for unintended pregnancies would increase to $22.9 billion. However, if all women wanting to avoid a pregnancy used modern contraception, the cost of pregnancy-related care for unintended pregnancies would decline to $6.6 billion.
Adolescence, the period in which young people transition from childhood to adulthood, is a critical time to invest in sexual and reproductive health. In LMICs, many young women become sexually active, marry and start childbearing between the ages of 15 and 19, often without the support of policies and programs that would enable them to make informed and voluntary decisions to protect their health and exercise their sexual and reproductive rights.4,118
Therefore, increasing awareness of the benefits of contraceptive services and building the capacity of adolescents to make their own decisions about using contraceptives is vital.128 Interventions with supporting evidence include combining educational programs in schools and communities with youth-friendly services, health center outreach activities and media campaigns.129 Activities that integrate improvements in service quality with efforts to generate community support for adolescent sexual and reproductive health are effective at increasing uptake of sexual and reproductive health services.130
Infertility is a central issue in the lives of many who experience it.187 Together with the relatively low political priority afforded this issue in LMICs, the high costs of diagnosis, treatment and assisted reproductive technologies have resulted in a huge divide between wealthy and poor countries in the availability of fertility care. Much more could be done, however, to raise awareness about and prevent infertility, to research low-cost solutions and to make access to new technologies more equitable across the globe.4
Development assistance for health makes up about 25% of health spending in low-income countries; in some, it accounts for more than 50%.217 Middle-income countries have already increased their domestic government and private-sector financing of health, and similar increases will be critical over the long term in low-income countries.214 For the near future, however, increased domestic spending alone is not likely to close the gaps in services. 59ce067264
