For instance, the people who routinely get themselves screened for being a carrier for Tay-Sachs disease are a demographic who have an extremely strong historical reason to be worried about Nazi-style dysgenics, and yet, eugenics is exactly what they are doing whenever a couple of them, on learning that they are both carriers, decide to refrain from having children together, or break off their relationship and seek other, non-carrier partners. The Nazis thought they were practising eugenics. From their point of view, they were improving the gene pool:
Posted on July 3, by Gavinmac Lately, there have been a lot of Westerners moving to Cambodia or making plans to move to Cambodia.
Some of the recent interest in Cambodia has come from Westerners living in Thailand. Rising prices in Thailand and stricter Thai visa regulations have already contributed to a noticeable influx of shifty-eyed, tattooed sexpats creeping across the border into Cambodia.
There has been such an overwhelming interest in moving to Cambodia that two recent books have been published on the topic.
I personally believe that there are significant drawbacks to moving to Cambodia that could probably fill an entire book. Maybe not a real book, but definitely one of those silly e-books. You will die younger in Cambodia. This is a big one.
The average life expectancy for Westerners living in Western countries is about 75 to 80 years old, depending on the country. Unofficially, the average life expectancy for Western expatriates living in Cambodia is There are a number of reasons why moving to Cambodia will shave about twenty years off your life.
Cambodia has a lot of common diseases that you would never catch in your home country, like Typhoid, Dengue Fever, Hepatitis, and Malaria.
The medical care in Cambodia is atrociously bad. The ambulances are unreliable; the doctors are unqualified; the hospitals are unsanitary.
Even easily treatable illnesses can quickly become life-threatening if Cambodian doctors get involved. Sometimes expats in Cambodia succumb not to illness, but to traffic accidents or other hazards. Expats like to ride motorbikes, often helmetless, presumably because they think it makes them look cool.
This can be rather dangerous in a country with reckless local drivers, no enforcement of traffic laws, and poor emergency medical care. If you start choking in a restaurant in a Western country, your waiter or another customer will quickly perform the Heimlich Maneuver on you.
If you start choking in a restaurant in Cambodia, the locals will all stand around dumbfounded and stare at you until you turn blue and collapse on the floor.
Only then will one of them spring into action and attempt to revive you by vigorously rubbing tiger balm on your forehead.
Cambodia is a horrible place to raise a child. If you have a child or you are planning to have children, you definitely should not move to Cambodia. World Health Organization statistics show that a child born in Cambodia is ten times more likely to die before the age of 5 than a child born in France.
All of the diseases that kill adults in Cambodia are even more dangerous to young children. Kids are also more likely to be involved in accidents requiring emergency medical care, because kids are fragile and kind of stupid.
While children may be coddled and overprotected in Western societies, they are simply left to their Darwinian fate in Cambodia. Cambodian children are often seen wandering the streets without adult supervision or perched helmetless on the front of passing motorbikes.
If your daughter develops acute appendicitis in your home country, you can take her to the emergency room at a modern hospital.
If your daughter develops acute appendicitis in Cambodia.
Just start over with a new kid. Their future will still be quite bleak. The educational system in Cambodia is absolutely dire, from the primary schools through the universities. As young Western citizens, your children enjoy the same wonderful opportunity that you had to grow up in a civilized country with good schools, quality health care, free speech, seat belts, career prospects, democracy, Fig Newtons, and long life expectancies.
What amazes me is that the Westerners who decide to raise their children in Cambodia remain in total denial about what terrible, selfish parents they really are. Even compared to neighboring countries like Vietnam and Thailand, the infrastructure in Cambodia is truly appalling.
The schools, hospitals, roads, and utilities are all of very poor quality. Trash piles up in the street. Rats and roaches abound. Main roads in the capital city are now gridlocked during rush hours, and traffic only gets worse each year.
There is no mass transit system and nowhere to park your car. Internet connections are relatively slow. The tap water is dodgy.A Continuum of Mood States. Many people are puzzled by the term "Unipolar Depression," which is another term for Major Depression.
The term "Unipolar Depression" is used here to differentiate Major Depression from the other famous sort of depression, Bipolar (or Manic) Depression, which is a .
If you have a court order and the mother refuses to hand over the child, you need to point out that she is breaking a court order and if she still refuses, you need to consider applying to the court for enforcement of the order.

HHS Publication No. (SMA) Rockville, MD: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, While some research studies show that children of Alcoholics (COAs) do suffer a lot of negative consequences there are other studies that suggest that many children do not experience serious problems due to parental alcohol abuse.
