Breastfeeding Research – Hungary Protects it’s Culture
Lack of breastfeeding costs global economy nearly $1B every day: researchers
Not enough breastfeeding costs the global economy almost $1 billion each day due to lost productivity and healthcare costs, researchers said on Friday, as health experts urged more support for nursing mothers.
A new website developed by researchers in Canada and Asia showed that the world could have saved $341 billion each year if mothers breastfeed their children for longer, helping prevent early deaths and various diseases.
Known as the “Cost of Not Breastfeeding”, the online tool used data from a six-year study supported by the U.S.-based maternal and child nutrition initiative, Alive & Thrive.
“It is a human right, it saves lives and improves the prosperity of economies,” Canada-based health economics expert Dylan Walters said about the importance of breastfeeding.
Hungary PM: No Compromise on Migration, Protecting Christian Culture
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán reinforced his administration’s commitment to defending its citizens and Christendom against all-out warfare being waged by globalists in Europe and beyond.
During a weekly interview on Hungarian public radio, PM Orbán asserted that the left-right European political divide is being replaced by one that pits pro-migration internationalists against those who believe in national sovereignty and border security.
“Europe is currently undergoing a transformation… Migration has changed our life,” Orban said. “We won’t compromise on the issue of the protection of Christian culture and migration. Everything else is open for discussion.”
Orban at Tusvanyos: Yes to democracy, no to liberalism
The Hungarian nation today has the political and economic calibre to protect itself and preserve its independence, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Saturday in his annual address at the “Tusvanyos” summer university.
Soon it will have the physical means to defend itself, too, he said at the event held in Baile Tusnad (Tusnadfurdo), in central Romania. Hungary’s government has succeeded in regaining the country’s sovereignty and protecting its borders against migration, Orban said.
Lockheed Martin’s Coatesville plant will remain open after CEO meets with Trump
Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson said Wednesday that the company will keep its manufacturing plant in Coatesville, Pennsylvania, open following a discussion with President Donald Trump.
“It’s a good operation with an excellent workforce,” Hewson said in a statement. “We look forward to working with the government and PA Congressional delegation to find more work for this facility.”
The plant is under Sikorsky, the Lockheed-owned firm that was previously awarded a $542 million Department of Defense contract to build the next generation of presidential helicopters.
Sikorsky won the bid after Trump toured a prototype of the chopper at the White House in June. The VH 92 helicopter, which will be placed in service in 2020, made a practice landing on the South Lawn. During his time as a businessman, Trump owned multiple aircraft, and has long paid attention to the details of his air travel.
