Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Teen Births Decreasing In Ohio
The number of teen births in Ohio is still declining.
The rate of women 19 and younger who gave birth in Ohio fell for the fourth consecutive year in 2011. That’s according to an analysis of preliminary state data.
Ohio Department of Health statistics show that the 12,189 teen births last year were down 11 percent from 2010. And it was the fewest recorded since the state began keeping track in 1990.
Health officials say teen births continue to decline because more young people are using contraceptives, delaying sexual activity and utilizing more effective forms of birth control.
Teen births are on track to fall again this year, with the state recording only 7,788 through late October.
