From the +Washington Post's Answer Sheet blog, a powerful call for making comprehensive #sexeducation‬  a central part of our public health agenda.

"According to the Youth Behavior Risk Survey System, 47 percent of high school students have engaged in sexual intercourse before graduating. Of those teenagers, 33 percent engaged in sex within the past three months and nearly 40 percent did not use a condom and 77 percent did not use birth control. The United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate among all industrialized countries. In terms of sexually transmitted diseases, according to the +Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), half of all new sexually transmitted infections occur in young people ages 15-24."

Helping out (in the office) at my friend's spa is making me a bit achy. That qualifies as irony, right?

From the majesty of "Cosmos" to the misery of local news. Talk about a precipitous plunge in quality.

Yup, it's always a race to find the remote as soon as Cosmos is over.

Dear Nature,
Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. There will be plenty of whiteness on display. Stop trying to help.

So. Today I unexpectedly found myself back on the "demand" side of the employment equation. If you have an organization in need of 5'6" of distilled fantasticness, feel free to link to opportunities in the comments.

"We teach children letters at a young age. We teach them how to make sounds. We teach them how to read. We do that in progression to prepare them to be good, productive citizens, and we do that in an age-appropriate way. It's kind of unfortunate that we have 20-somethings — people who are going off to college, people who are getting married, people who are wanting to start families — who don't understand their bodies. I think that's a failure on our part."

I have yet to find the proper mix of humility and bombast necessary to write a really compelling biographical blurb.
Introduction
I'm a nonprofit professional looking for employment in the Des Moines, IA metro area. I'm a 2013 Leadership Institute Fellow with New Leaders Council - Des Moines, and I serve on their board as Technology and Communications Chair. I'm also an editor with the radio show and podcast Science for the People.

I've recently been a judicial policy researcher, recovering attorney, humanist, long-distance father, science enthusiast and aspiring critical thinker. I'm usually not afraid to admit when I'm wrong, but I try extremely hard not to be.

All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. They are not intended to represent the views of any entity or organization with which I'm affiliated.
