After doing the sensible thing and saving money for her daughter, an angry Siobhan O'Neill has learned that the returns were nothing like she had expected Going backwards? Siobhan is unimpressed with the returns on Una's savings. Photograph: Martin Argles It was my daughter Una's third birthday last week. We celebrated in the usual style - family, presents, cake and candles. One thing we are not celebrating, however, is the less-than-spectacular recent performance of her child trust fund. It's a time-honoured tradition, saving money for your child, and something the government recommends that we do. But I ...

Ethics And Genetics: An International Survey - Research and Read ...
A first step toward resolving ethical problems in medicine is to discover how clinicians approach these problems in practice. In a rapidly evolving specialty like medical genetics, most of whose practitioners have entered the field within the last fifteen years, geneticists' own views should provide a starting-point for discussion. Yet such data are rarely gathered on a systematic basis. To provide a more solid basis for informed discussion, in 1985-86 we undertook a survey of responses to ethical dilemmas by medical geneticists in nineteen nations. Geneticists approached in fieldwork identified six types of ethical ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Reality TV kids don't have a safety net
Even by reality television standards, the showdown in the Season 1 finale of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" was epic: A furious Teresa Giudice screamed at fellow cast member Danielle Staub that she was a "prostitution whore," then yanked a table into the air, sending dishes crashing to the ground. Watching the drama were Staub's noticeably alarmed daughters, then 11 and 15, whose mother had kept them in the room for the exchange. New Jersey prohibits minors from appearing in entertainment productions dangerous to their "life, limb, health or morals." But the state could not say whether the "Housewives" series is ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
An enlightenment fit for the 21st century
The Tories� �big society� challenges the people, and not just governments, to embrace change. To effect its own change for the better, Labour and the left must imbibe new ideas about human psychology and learn how to speak a collective language of ethics. The Royal Society of Arts has a new motto: 21st-century enlightenment. It pays tribute to the 18th-century founders of the society and is a statement about the RSA's role today. We have been asking how Enlightenment principles have come to be interpreted and whether they should be rethought in the light of today's challenges and important new insights into human ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What are the ethical arguments for child suport? | Ask MetaFilter
There are plenty of great legal and practical arguments for child support payments out there, but what about an ethical argument? It isn't hard to come up with practical and legal justifications for a single mom to require child support from the father. But what about the ethical arguments? I know a single mother who is working out an agreement with the father of their unplanned, forthcoming child (four months away). She earns a bit more than he does and plans to live alone with the baby. Although they are no longer a couple, she and the dad get along well and may or may not revisit the relationship in the future. He ...
Alimony: under what circumstances is it ethical to demand one?
I am going through a divorce, so this is a very relevant question for me. Do you think the whole alimony thing is outdated, or is there still an ethical basis to it sometimes? Would you, or would you not? It would help if you state your gender, though you don't have to. The reason I am asking is, I think obvious: probably a lot more women consider alimony ethical.  Discuss this question (12 comments) why can't I answer?
