How soon after giving birth can you get pregnant again

Posted: 10 Jan 2020 10:38 AM PST

Publix pregnantPublix / YouTube

  • How long you should wait between pregnancies mostly depends on how you delivered the previous baby.
  • If a baby is delivered naturally, through the vagina, at 39 weeks, or full-term, then you should wait 18 months before the start of your next pregnancy
  • If you delivered the baby via C-section, the ACOG recommends waiting 24 months before conceiving again.
  • If you don't give your body enough time to recover before getting pregnant again, it increases your risk for all types of complications during your next pregnancy.
  • Don't assume that just because you're breastfeeding that you can't get pregnant.

  • A 1.2-mile-wide meteorite struck Earth 800,000 years ago.
  • Scientists have long known when the space rock hit and how far debris scattered, but they couldn't find the spot where the meteorite made landfall — until now.
  • A new study suggests the meteorite struck present-day Laos, and its impact crater lies beneath a volcanic field.

About 800,000 years ago, a monster space rock struck the Earth hard and fast. The impact of the 1.2 mile-wide meteorite flung debris across 10% of the planet's surface.

Scientists have found this ancient debris, mostly in the form of glass blobs known as tektites, in Asia, Australia, and Antarctica. But until now, researchers had never found the site where the meteorite hit.

  • President Donald Trump falsely claimed that he deserves credit for the Nobel Peace Prize recently awarded to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
  • Ahmed was awarded the prestigious prize for negotiating a peace deal between Ethiopia and neighboring Eritrea following 20 years of bloody conflict. Trump had nothing to do with the peace negotiations.
  • "I made a deal, I saved a country, and I just heard that the head of that country is now getting the Nobel Peace Prize for saving the country. I said, 'What, did I have something do with it?' Yeah," Trump said.

'Why won't my video upload to YouTube?': How to troubleshoot if your video won't upload to YouTube's site

Posted: 10 Jan 2020 10:14 AM PST

youtube app phoneShutterstock

  • If your video won't upload to YouTube, it could be because of issues with available bandwidth on the network you're using.
  • On other occasions, an extremely high volume of upload traffic by other users can delay or impede your video upload.
  • Certain video file types cannot be uploaded to YouTube — the ideal file type is an MP4 with a frame rate between 24 and 60 frames per second.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

So, you just took a hilarious video of your friends dancing at the beach? Or you had a chance encounter with a movie star or noted politician? Or maybe you digitized an old gem of a family movie you want to share to your YouTube Channel so your friends and family can share it?

Great, well uploading a video to YouTube is quick and easy! Except when the upload fails. 

How to troubleshoot if your video won't upload to YouTube

Shutterstock

There could be many reasons your video won't upload, and the good news is that most of them are in your control and fixable.



Check your internet connection

Steven John/Business Insider

If your video won't upload to YouTube, first check the basics. Make sure your phone is connected to a reliable wi-fi network or has a strong cell signal when you're on the move, and make sure your computer has a fast enough internet connection for uploading video files.

To test the speed of your internet connection, you can simply search  "internet test speed" on Google and click "Run Speed Test" in the search box featured at the top. A window will open that will give you an estimate of the megabits per second your connection is currently operating at, and give you a qualitative evaluation of the metric it calculates. 



Check the size of your video

Steven John/Business Insider

Assuming your connection is strong enough for uploads, next check the size and length of the video that you're having trouble uploading. YouTubers with basic accounts cannot upload videos larger than 2 GB or longer than 15 minutes (or both, of course).

You can increase the size of the videos that you can upload to YouTube by verifying your YouTube account. Your phone will be sent a one-time code you can use to verify the account and increase your video size limit.

A baby born without skin has defied the odds and celebrated his first birthday

Posted: 10 Jan 2020 10:08 AM PST

NICUGetty

  • Ja'bari Gray, of San Antonio, Texas, was born last year without skin on most of his body due to a rare condition, which doctors haven't been able to diagnose.
  • Ja'bari has responded to skin graft treatments, and has defied the odds. He celebrated his first birthday this month.
  • One medical expert said Ja'bari's condition is similar to epidermolysis bullosa, a group of genetic disorders, where the skin blisters, even with the slightest movement or touch.
  • Visit Insider's homepage for more. 

Soon after Ja'bari Gray was born, his parents expected to plan a funeral. A year later, the San Antonio, Texas baby has defied the odds, and he celebrated his first birthday this month with a Baby Shark-themed bash, the San Antonio Express-News reported. 

Ja'bari was born last year without skin on much of his body as a result of a mysterious condition that has stumped medical experts. His case is so severe that when he was a newborn, Ja'bari's mother couldn't even touch him. Skin-to-skin contact could have caused a life-threatening injury because his body didn't have a protective layer.

Experts say 'panic' and 'poor training' could have resulted in Iran accidentally shooting down Ukrainian Flight 752

Posted: 10 Jan 2020 09:58 AM PST

Ukraine jet missile videoThe New York Times

  • US officials have said an Iranian missile most likely downed a Ukrainian passenger jet that crashed Wednesday morning shortly after taking off from Tehran's main international airport.
  • Researchers told Business Insider that a combination of "poor training" and "panic" could have led Iranian personnel to fire a missile at the plane accidentally. Nearly half the plane's passengers were Iranian.
  • But other experts say the plane's flight path and data transmitted to radars would have indicated the aircraft was a passenger plane.
  • Iran denies the plane was brought down by a missile, instead blaming a technical failure.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Video footage that emerged Thursday showed the moment Western officials believe an Iranian surface-to-air missile detonated near a Ukrainian International Airlines jet carrying 176 people, puncturing the fuselage with thousands of shards of shrapnel and sending it crashing to the ground.

Iran has denied responsibility for bringing down the jet, blaming a technical failure and accusing the US of spreading a "big lie" by claiming a missile strike caused the crash, which killed everyone on board.

Tech companies are at the center of a major shift in the relationship between workers, consumers, and businesses — and executives are reacting (GOOG, GOOGL, AMZN, FB, UBER, PWC)

Posted: 10 Jan 2020 09:51 AM PST

Meredith Whittaker Google WalkoutAP Photo/Bebeto Matthews

  • Tech executives' top concerns for 2020 are workforce issues, healthcare, and data privacy, according to a recent survey from PricewaterhouseCoopers.
  • Their priorities reflect how workers and consumers' relationships with tech companies are changing, driven in part by new business models — from digital ads to the sharing economy — that many companies have come to rely on.
  • Google, Facebook, Amazon, Uber, and other tech giants have faced growing criticism — both internally and externally — for things like mistreating workers and misusing consumer data.
  • As governments crack down with new gig economy and data privacy laws, investigations, and record fines, tech executives are racing to get ahead on shaping the narrative.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. 

Workforce, healthcare, and data privacy are the issues tech executives say will have the most impact on their businesses, according to a recent survey from PricewaterhouseCoopers. And with the 2020 presidential election looming, more than 70% say they're "very actively" looking to influence the debate on those key issues.

Their priorities reflect a shift in the relationship between workers, consumers, and businesses that's happening in part because of the business models that have become so integral to many companies.

Tech and sharing economy companies' reliance on independent contractors has highlighted disparities in pay and benefits between different classes of workers. In response, several states have passed laws that aim to boost protections for workers — but may also have unintended side effects.

The rise of digital advertising, online platforms and the value of personal information has redefined how consumers interact with companies. Here too, governments have reacted, passing new data privacy laws like Europe's GDPR and the California Consumer Privacy Act.

Workers and consumers are increasingly taking matters into their own hands as well, from staging protests to unionizing to speaking out against their former employers.

Managers at these companies have taken notice, as indicated by the issues they hope to shape ahead of the 2020 election.

Here's why each is so crucial.

How workers are classified could completely upend companies' business models — and not just for gig companies like Uber or DoorDash.

Carlos Jasso/Reuters

California's AB5 law, which makes it significantly harder to classify workers as independent contractors, went into effect on January 1 and affects tens of thousands of gig, freelance, and contract workers across the state.

The law was originally targeted at sharing economy businesses like Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash that rely heavily on contractors, but already its impact is being felt in industries from trucking to media. Uber and delivery company Postmates have already sued to block the law

New York also implemented a minimum wage in 2019 for ride-hailing drivers, which drove up prices for Uber and Lyft rides.

As employees take stronger stands against issues like workplace harassment, hiring bias, and pay discrimination, tech companies are paying much closer attention to how they manage their workforce.

"It impacts their cost, it impacts their ability to attract talent, and it really impacts in many cases how they build their business model," said Alison Kutler, leader of strategic policy advisers at PwC and a co-author of its policy trends report.



Companies are looking to cut healthcare costs — even if that means taking matters into their own hands.

Business Insider Intelligence

While healthcare has become a key issue in the presidential race, major legislation is unlikely to happen in the next year. But the tech industry isn't holding its breath.

"A lot of companies have come together to try to create almost a parallel health system to try to lower costs," Kutler said.

Amazon recently launched its own health clinics for employees, and along with other tech giants like Google and Microsoft, has ambitions to get into the healthcare business itself.

At the same time, companies are looking to provide employees — or at least certain ones — with extensive health benefits to gain an edge in recruiting.

"Healthcare and health benefits are something that's important right now as people are looking for jobs and there is definitely competition for talent," Kutler said.



Companies sense a need to be more transparent about what they're doing to protect consumers' privacy — especially at the state level.

AP Photo/Andrew Harnik

Thanks to an endless onslaught of data breaches and privacy stumbles in recent years, consumers have grown concerned about how companies use their personal information.

In response, more governments have been enacting data privacy laws to give consumers better control over what information companies collect on them.

The EU's GDPR, which went into effect in 2019, has forced companies to spend millions on compliance efforts and already led to massive fines for violations. Companies have also been scrambling to update their privacy policies to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act, which went into effect on January 1.

As other states follow California's lead, companies are attempting to get their message out proactively by putting "more people, more resources, and more focus on state level activity than they have previously," Kutler said.

But it's not all for show, according to Kutler. She believes companies can gain a business edge by doing things like creating simpler privacy policies and clearly communicating how they're using consumer data.

"Companies that do that better are going to be successful with regulators, consumers, all the way across the board with various stakeholders," Kutler said.
