More U.S. moms are staying at home with kids: study
More American mothers are staying at home with their children, a shift that reflects rising immigration and the fact many women are unable to find jobs after a sluggish period for the U.S. economy, a Pew analysis released on Tuesday showed. Twenty-nine percent of U.S. mothers, or about 10.4 million women, stayed at home in 2012. The category of stay-at-home mothers with children under 18 includes women who are at home to care for their families and mothers who cannot find work, are disabled or in school, the Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau data said. Six percent of stay-at-home mothers, or about 634,000 people, said they were home with their children in 2012 because they could not find a job.

Gates-backed TB drug to enter late-stage testing
By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) – The first experimental drug that fights both conventional and drug-resistant forms of tuberculosis is advancing to late-stage clinical testing, researchers said on Wednesday, raising hope for a new way to stem the growing threat of drug-resistant TB. The trial, financed in part by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will test the safety and effectiveness of a new three-drug cocktail known as PaMZ that in mid-stage testing helped to significantly reduce treatment times. In a statement announcing the trial, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, co-chair of the Gates Foundation, said the treatment could “reduce the time required to cure drug-resistant TB from two years to just six months” and sharply cut the cost of a cure in low-income countries. The World Health Organization estimates that 8.6 million people developed TB in 2012 and 1.3 million died from the disease.
