Clarksville, TN – In recent years, Nashville artist Adrienne Outlaw has experienced a growing sense of unease with the rapid advances being made in medical technology. Her apprehension is reflected in works such as her “Fecund Series,” which requires viewers to gaze into breast-like funnels to see eerily quiet videos, such as a sonogram of a fetus’ beating heart.
“For the first time in history, there is knowledge available to mothers which forces them to make life or death decisions whether to carry a disfigured, malformed or unintentional fetus to term, whether to use pharmaceuticals with their associated risks and whether to risk passing on genetic diseases,” Outlaw said. “In these situations, we are no longer able to rely on long-established religious, societal or medical expertise for guidance, and too often, we only grapple with such problems at the time of crisis.” «Read the rest of this article»

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist
The economic data were generally better. The ISM manufacturing and non-manufacturing indices each picked up in December, although levels remained consistent with only moderate economic growth. The December Employment report was moderately strong. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 200,000 (vs. a median forecast of +150,000), but was likely boosted by the seasonal adjustment (unadjusted payrolls fell by 219,000). The two previous months were revised a net 12,000 lower. Private-sector payrolls rose by 212,000. State and local government continued to shed jobs (-14,000), but the pace of decline has been moderating as tax revenues improve.
The unemployment rate fell to 8.5%, from a revised 8.7% in November and 9.4% a year ago. The broader unemployment rate (U-6), which includes discouraged workers and part-time workers who would rather half full-time employment, fell to 15.2%, vs. 15.6% in November and 16.6% a year ago. The employment-population ratio held steady at 58.5%, vs. 58.3% a year ago. «Read the rest of this article»
