Hi readerwriterdancer and dftba-starkids - thanks for catching that error with the Hebrew! We fixed the image, which is now reflected on our website. The story was part of our “Ninth Month" series, looking at different global topics around childbirth and pregnancy.

Do the words we use to describe pregnancy reveal our feelings toward it?

It starts off disgusting, but then it becomes alright and then it launches at the very end into ambiguity if the presenter understood what was said or not.

In the graphic the video links to, the hebrew is written left-to-right, not right-to-left the way Hebrew should be written. THis graphic is correct you. And it does start off really disgusting and then gets some better.

Sultan Abdülmecid I ruled the Ottoman Empire from 1823 to 1861. He was most famous for his efforts in trying to unite and modernize the Ottoman Empire through the Tanzimat reforms. However the sultan’s greatest act of kindness was in 1847 as Ireland was in the grips of the Great Famine. After hearing about the famine from his Irish doctor, Abdülmecid had decided to send 10,000 pounds in aid. However Queen Victoria, who only sent 2000 pounds to help Ireland, did not want to be outdone by Abdülmecid’s more generous offer and ordered him to send only a 1000 pounds. Although Abdülmecid did agree to this offer, secretly he sent three ships filled with food and provisions to the Irish town of Drogheda. 
Sultan Abdülmecid pretty much won my heart after giving Queen Victoria a symbolic middle finger and helped hundreds of people who were starving, all in one beautiful story.

In 2013 there were setbacks in the effort to eradicate polio.   Polio outbreaks occurred in the Horn of Africa and Somalia but there was also progress.  Type 2 and Type 3 polio appear to have disappeared which could make wiping out the disease easier.

In the past few years, Medellin, Colombia has seemingly been transformed from a blighted haven for drug trafficking to an award-winning place of smart urban design. And the man who gets a lot of the credit for that transformation a mathematician turned politician. Hear Marco’s interview with the former mayor, Sergio Fajardo:http://ow.ly/ilNhv
