Mobilizing a More Sustainable World

Our world is built on connections, with each other, with information, with entertainment. At work, at home and in our cars, we are continuously connected, increasingly mobile and constantly building new networks. We’re driven to mobilize every aspect of this world to make it work even better for you. And as we do so, we look for ways our voice, our expertise, and our technology can help find answers to some of our society’s challenging problems.

For instance, we’re more committed than ever to working with educators, nonprofits and entrepreneurs to improve learning opportunities for students and make them a success in school and ready for careers. Together with Environmental Defense Fund, we’ve developed a toolkit that could save businesses 28 billion gallons of water annually if scaled across U.S. commercial buildings. We drive responsibly as well; with one of the largest commercial fleets in the U.S., we have more than 8,000 alternative-fuel vehicles deployed, helping us avoid using 12.4 million gallons of gasoline since 2009. And we continue to advocate passionately about the perils of texting while driving. Continue reading

Bisexual Men Face Unique Challenges to Their Sexual Health

Ann Arbor, MI, June 23, 2014 /3BL Media/ – Bisexual men have many unmet public health needs, which leave them vulnerable to sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and other health problems. This new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) illuminates the behavioral, interpersonal, and social realities of men who have sex with men and women (MSMW), and it explores possible interventions to better serve their needs. The findings are published today in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

MSMW represent a small portion of the population, with about 2% of sexually active males reporting sex with both men and women. Although low in numbers, the bisexual male population is disproportionally affected by HIV and STIs. According to study author William L. Jeffries IV, PhD, MPH, MA, factors that may affect the sexual health of MSMW include sex without condoms, early sexual debut, forced sexual encounters, increased numbers of sexual partners, substance use, exchange sex, risk behaviors of their male and female partners, and attitudes toward pregnancy. These factors shape MSMW’s vulnerability to HIV and STIs in ways that distinguish bisexual men from gay and heterosexual men. Negative attitudes toward bisexual individuals, economic barriers, masculinity norms, and the meanings associated with their sexual identities are among the social factors that may negatively influence their sexual partnerships and risks for HIV/STIs.
