WASHINGTON, April 22 (Xinhua) -- Tens of thousands of scientists and their supporters took to the streets in Washington, D.C. and around the world on
Saturday to protest against what organizers described as an ""alarming""
The main March for Science event was held in Washington, D.C., where thousands, mainly scientists, engineers, teachers, students, parents and
children, defied pouring rain to gather at the National Mall to hear
high-profile speakers who declared science under attack and asked politicians to
""We are marching today to remind people everywhere our lawmakers especially of the significance of science for our health and prosperity,"" Bill Nye, a
popular U.S. science educator and CEO of the Planetary Society who served as
honorary co-chair of the event, told the crowd at the rally that lasted about
four hours followed by a march to the U.S. Capitol.
""Today, we have a great many lawmakers, not just here but around the world, deliberately ignoring and actively suppressing science,"" Nye asserted. ""Their
inclination is misguided and in no one's best interest.""
Out in the crowd, worries were expressed straightforwardly in the signs and banners held by the participants that read: ""Science, not silence,"" ""Oceans
are rising, and so are we,"" ""Fund Science = Fun Future,"" ""Policy without
science is a Biohazard,"" ""Science is not a partisan issue, it is the
foundation of our society,"" ""Science is NOT an opinion.""
""I'm here because I want to make sure climate change is a major focus of policy in the near history of our government,"" Emily Wiggans, a middle-aged
woman who came with her family, told Xinhua. ""I think we really need to focus
on a present danger as a national security threat and do more with climate
scientists and put more funding into climate scientists and science.""
Another woman, Ray Whittle, was outraged about President Donald Trump's proposed budget, which would slash funding for the U.S. medical research funder,
the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a federal agency her son was working
""His budget is a disaster. I'm terrified he is going to cut NIH funding. There is lots of scientific work being done out there right now. I think that we
have to put our money where our people are lost,"" Whittle told Xinhua, holding
a poster board with the words: ""Disease kills more people than terrorism. Fund
Another marcher, Dominique Hall, who described herself as a public health scientist, also did not hesitate to express her disbelief.
""I'm just disappointed because the current administration is so strongly against science and because the country is looking to too much alternative facts
to deny science,"" Hall said.
""I worked on science since graduate school for the past five years, and both my parents work for government agencies, and it (science) has always been part
of my life.""
Besides the Washington march, organizers said there are 609 ""satellite"" marches across the United States and across the world in a protest timed to
coincide with Earth Day.
In a statement, Trump insisted that his administration is committed to protecting the environment ""without harming America's working families.""
""That is why my Administration is reducing unnecessary burdens on American workers and American companies,"" he said. ""Rigorous science is critical to my
Administration's efforts to achieve the twin goals of economic growth and
environmental protection...(but) we should remember that rigorous science
depends not on ideology, but on a spirit of honest inquiry and robust debate.""

" Most men will do almost anything to avoid manhood problems, and with good reason: Most member problems are painful, itchy or otherwise a pain to deal
with, not to mention putting a man out of commission when it comes to bedroom
antics. However, there is one type of male organ problem that sneaks up on a
guy, leaving him feeling unable to enjoy himself as he should – and in this
case, even the best male organ care won’t help at first. The problem is anemia.
Anemia is a medical condition that affects every part of the body. It happens when a man’s body is lacking in red blood cells, or
the red blood cells he does have aren’t working properly. This matters because
red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen to all areas of the body.
Where there are fewer red blood cells, there is less oxygen to go around. The
problem results in a man feeling very tired, even heavily fatigued or exhausted
– and that leads to a lack of intimate drive, or even an inability to get it up
when he is feeling frisky.
What causes anemia?
Anemia can be caused by many things, and sometimes more than one thing at once. The good news
is that it can be easy to pinpoint where it’s coming from, so it can be more
