I have been thinking quite a bit about the issues raised by the BMJ article below (& others) and the language of #commercialdeterminantsofhealth or #CDoH
It is so important that #socialscientists , including #anthropologists participate in these conversations
It is so important that we think about the role of #industry interests in shaping #health & #socialscientists can help frame these conversations in broader terms

This piece is getting a lot closer to key issues we discuss in the #anthropology of #reproduction. A few key issues I would like to note.
1) The concept of #stratifiedreproduction is helpful here. Originally described by Shellee Colen, #stratifiedreproduction describes systematic ways in which some people's #reproduction is valued & nurtured, while others' are devalued & hindered.
2) We've been working w/ this concept since it was put at the center of our emerging field of the #anthropology of #reproduction in 1995 when Faye Ginsburg & Rayna Rapp published the pivotal edited volume "Conceiving the New World Order" tinyurl.com/y9c4jjv3

1. #Midterms2018 - The Facts:
- To win the #House the #Democrats need 23 more seats: Not easy
- To win the #Senate they need 2 more and successfully defend existing seats (100 seats in total, 2 for each #state): Not easy
- I detect that the #TrumpTrain (#RedWave) runs full speed!
2. #Midterms2018 - #Trump does a lot right:
- "The Base" was well prepared: You see it at all Trump-rallies
- Trump pushes a few emotive topics (illegal #migration): He knows - "Keep it simple, stupid!" #KISS
- The numbers are on his side: #Economy & #JobNumbers great
3. #Midterms2018 - What the #Democrats do wrong:
- Too many damaged goods: #ElizabethWarren (#Fakecahontas), #HillaryClinton despite all the support, over a billion war-chest & #media on her side LOST! But they keep pushing her!
- No single winning face, to win the votes!

There's far too much #bull being rattled around this ref. proposal. Wake up #Ireland folks; yes, we need to amend wording to reflect reality, ensure equality of responsibility is norm; no, it would be terminally stupid to throw it all out altogether,reduce legal standing of all/1
2/ from potentially exploitative employers' points of view. Amendment should not mean rescinding basic tenets on protecting #economic position of wo/men w children & of childrens' rights to home & care there, it should mean updating in line with values & mores of us now & ongoing
3/ See the shiiiiit-stirrrrring for what it is: #brexit deflector #Border deflector #EU agreement deflector #criminalcase going down deflector #Referendum #Women of #Ireland you're way brighter than that, get a grip. And trolls can just bot off with themselves. Hi @TransparentRef

#SRO| ANALYSIS - Now years ago, #SRO was the first to warn how #Turkey was creating a new "Northern #Cyprus" in N-#Syria. All facts now confirming it : many roads and buildings in #Bab pocket now linked to #Kilis province (1).
#SRO | ANALYSIS - The #Turkey army, under military diktat or under #AKP full powers, is applying exactly the same steps : "protecting" a population (turks in #Cyprus, reinstalling turkmensin N-#Syria) and installing military bases (2).
#SRO | ANALYSIS - Next step, as in #Cyprus in early 80', is now beginning in #Bab pocket : turning the area into a full protectorate, erasing former evidences of previous #state (#Syria in #Bab pocket, #Cyprus in N-#Cyprus) (3).
