Will Women Take a Gamble on Donald Trump?

It is, perhaps, one of the most controversial the U.S. presidential races to date, and the reason? Donald Trump. He is a hot topic of conversation and debates across the country, causing quite a stir. It is a love-hate relationship for most, toward a man who doesn’t hold back. This is a refreshing change for a political candidate and it has captured the attention of the American public.
There has been quite a storm regarding Trump’s candid remarks to belittle and insult females. As a result, some women would love nothing more than to squash his sexist remarks with their 4-inch high heels, or if preferred, combat boots. He has even gone as far as to attack some of the biggest celebrities in the business, like Angelina Jolie, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rose O’Donnell and Cher.Quotes degrading women date back as early as the 1990’s:

1991 – Esquire interview: “You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”

1997 – The Art of the Comback: “I love you very much, but just in case things don’t work out, this is what you will get in the divorce. There are basically three types of women and reactions. One is the good woman who very much loves her future husband, solely for himself, but refuses to sign the agreement on principle. I fully understand this, but the man should take a pass anyway and find someone else. The other is the calculating woman who refuses to sign the prenuptial agreement because she is expecting to take advantage of the poor, unsuspecting sucker she’s got in her grasp. There is also the woman who will openly and quickly sign a prenuptial agreement in order to make a quick hit and take the money given to her.”

2004 – How to Get Rich: “It’s certainly not groundbreaking news that the early victories by the women on ‘The Apprentice’ were, to a very large extent, dependent on their sex appeal.”

2005 – The Art of Being The Donald: “My favorite part [of ‘Pulp Fiction’] is when Sam has his gun out in the diner and he tells the guy to tell his girlfriend to shut up. Tell that bitch to be cool. Say: ‘Bitch be cool.’ I love those lines.”

2011 – Elizabeth Beck in a CNN interview to Trump’s reaction when a lawyer requested a break to pump breast milk for her baby: “He got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and he screamed, ‘You’re disgusting, you’re disgusting,’ and he ran out of there.”

It is amazing that Mr. Trump leads in any of the polls where he, not only makes outrageous sexist statements about women, but hits below the belt with comments towards other races and uncalled-for jabs at his political opponents.

So, why has Donald Trump gained such recognition? Is it honesty that Americans crave so much, that they are willing to accept anything Trump says? Is it due to too many politicians’ sugar-coated speeches that have soured our perception; and how does the rest of the world feel about Trump?

On an international level, there is a vested interest, which even includes the United Kingdom, who are laying their money down on the presidential election.

Whether Trump makes it to the White House or not has piqued the interest of gamblers who typically throw their money down at the Craps tables, Horses or Sports betting and the not-so-typical gambling type. By the time the winner walks through the White House doors, it could be record-breaking wagering in European countries.

According to the popular Ladbroke bookies, it is Trump 4 to 1 for president and 8 to 1 for Hilary Clinton who is the overwhelming favorite.

As for women exclusively, are they forgiving enough to elect Trump? If you are willing to take a gamble, chances are, it would be a resounding unforgiving verdict.

Males Have Higher Risk of Suffering from Cancer: Study

Researchers explain why cancer risk is higher in males

DNA differences between men and women may explain why cancer risk is higher in males, according to a new study.

In findings published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, researchers have reported that loss of function in certain genes of the sex-determining Y chromosome, which is present only in men, may cause them to have an elevated risk for cancer.

Using data from 9,000 individuals, the researchers studied Y-chromosome gene function in patients with various types of cancer. The findings showed that cancer risk increases with loss of function of six key Y-chromosome genes in various types of cells.

“Recent studies have shown that complete loss of the Y chromosome, which is essential to foetal sex differentiation, occurs, with aging, in the cells of some men,” said study author Juan Ramon Gonzalez from Barcelona Institute for Global Health in Spain.

“Although the loss of the Y chromosome has previously been associated with higher incidence of cancer, the causes of this association are poorly understood,” Gonzalez added.

These six Y-chromosome genes are involved in cell-cycle regulation, the failure of which can lead to tumour development.

According to the study, understanding the biological differences between men and women in cancer is crucial for the development of personalised lines of treatment and prevention.

“Men are not only at higher risk of cancer than women, they also face a worse prognosis. In fact, these differences partially account for the lower life expectancy of men,” Gonzalez added.

According to the researchers, although men may be more exposed to carcinogens due to the type of work they do and at higher risk because they are less likely to consult a doctor, the study has shown that there are also biological factors that increase cancer risk among men.

“In fact, it seems that one of these factors can be found in the Y chromosome, the very essence of maleness,” said study lead author Alejandro Caceres.

Suppression of the Y chromosome can occur as a result of loss of function in the chromosome, which would explain previous findings, or as a result of other mechanisms mediated by the chemical (epigenetic) inactivation of the same regions, the research said.

“Certain environmental exposures, for example to tobacco or other harmful substances, could affect chromosome function and lead to epigenetic modifications,” Gonzalez said. (IANS)
