Martin Sorrell, head of advertising and public relations giant WPP, is reportedly the highest paid chief executive among FTSE 100 companies, taking home £48 million ($65 million)

Bosses at Britain's largest public companies will have on average made more money in the first four days of 2018 than typical workers earn annually, according to independent calculations released Thursday.

The High Pay Centre, a think tank, and human resources body The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), have dubbed January 4 "Fat Cat Thursday" to mark their findings.

Depression in children and youth can be hidden and needs to be taken seriously, psychiatrist says
Young people in Windsor-Essex struggling with depression aren't seeking professional help

Girls who go through puberty early could be more likely to experience depression and behaviour problems that last into their 20s compared to peers who start menstruation later, a U.S. study suggests.

Researchers studied data on nearly 7,800 women who had their first menstrual cycle at an average age of 12. The women were interviewed four times, starting around age 16 and continuing until about age 28.

Girls who went through puberty earlier than most were more likely to become depressed, and their symptoms were also more severe in adolescence, the study found. 

The younger the age at the first period, the stronger the association between early puberty and mental health problems; It was stronger for girls who started menstruation at age 8 than at age 10, for example.

The interview was recorded in Toronto in September on the sidelines of the Invictus Games, the athletic tournament created by Harry for wounded former soldiers

Former US President Barack Obama told Britain's Prince Harry he was concerned social media was "corroding civil discourse", in what he said was his first interview since leaving the White House, aired Wednesday.

"One of the dangers of the internet is that people can have entirely different realities," he told the prince, who was guest editing BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

"They can be cocooned in information that reinforces their current biases. Things aren't as simple as they've been portrayed in whatever chat room you've been in," he added.

"The question has to do with how do we harness this technology in a way that allows a multiplicity of voices, allows a diversity of views, but doesn't lead to a Balkanisation of society and allows ways of finding common ground."

“I’m the only one that matters”: Trump’s chilling imperial power-grab

President Donald Trump is overseas right now, doing personal appearances at his properties and making a fool of himself. So far, he's asked Japanese car makers to start making cars in the United States, apparently ignorant of the fact that three out of four Japanese-branded cars and trucks are already manufactured in America. And he hawked U.S. military equipment as if he were selling Trump steaks on YouTube.

That wasn't the worst of it. He also told American and Japanese troops that no nation should "underestimate American resolve." Then he quipped, "Every once in a while, in the past, they underestimated us. It was not pleasant for them, was it?"

Health and Food / Heart health: How to boost potassium intake
« on: October 30, 2017, 03:51:17 PM »
AFP Relaxnews / 06:54 PM October 29, 2017

Potassium is an essential mineral that some people tend to lack. It is essential for the transmission of nerve impulses, as well as muscle contraction (particularly the heart) and good kidney function, and plays a role in fighting high blood pressure, a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and stroke. These are important things to take note of in observance of World Stroke Day, Oct. 29.

Potassium is naturally present in pulses, such as white beans, chickpeas and lentils, vegetables (chard, spinach, potatoes, cabbage, mushrooms), fruit (avocado, banana, apricots, citrus fruit, blackcurrants), and dried fruit and nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios, dates, figs).

It is also found in meat and fish, especially oily fish (salmon, sardines and mackerel), as well as chocolate and wholegrain cereals.

Only fats such as butter, crème fraiche, oil and margarine don’t contain this mineral.

The comments, delivered at a conference hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, amounted to an indirect critique from a former Republican president who has remained largely silent during President Donald Trump's unlikely rise to power.

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Former President George W. Bush on Thursday denounced bigotry in Trump-era American politics, warning that the rise of “nativism,” isolationism and conspiracy theories have clouded the nation’s true identity.

The comments, delivered at a New York City conference hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, amounted to an indirect critique from a former Republican president who has remained largely silent during President Donald Trump’s unlikely rise to power. The 43rd president did not name Trump on Thursday, but he attacked some of the principles that define the 45th president’s political brand.

Column: Gen. John Kelly comes out to defend a coward
Dahleen Glanton   
Chicago Tribune

The photo of a young Army widow clutching the flag-draped casket of her husband is daunting. Myeshia Johnson’s pain seemed to run so deep that it pierced her soul.

She had been called upon to perform a duty that only the truest of American patriots, our Gold Star families, must do — claim the body of a fallen soldier upon his return home.

On this day, it could not have mattered to the pregnant mother of two small children that Sgt. La David Johnson had joined the Army of his own free will. Perhaps the soldier did realize that there was a chance he could be killed in an ambush while serving in Niger.

This was not the day to remind his wife of that. Yet, it is what Donald Trump did in a phone call to Johnson while she rode in a car to the airport in Miami to retrieve her husband’s remains.

As it turns out, the words were not even his own.

One of the most fascinating—which is to say, horrifying—things about the modern-day Trump regime has been watching our current president find himself confronted with bigger, ever-more sturdy edifices of fact, and then watching him methodically tear them down with all the pent-up rage and maturity of a three-year-old caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Not that this behavior is anything new for Trump, mind you, a depressing bit of real news about fake s*** that was demonstrated in an art-based anecdote from one of his biographers, which has been making the rounds over the last few weeks.

The story—which comes courtesy of Tim L. O’Brien, who wrote 2005 tell-all TrumpNation—centers on one of those small, almost casual lies Trump seems to delight in first telling, and then defending with a self-certainty that borders on the maniacal. O’Brien was flying with Trump on his private jet when he noticed a familiar painting hanging on the wall of the plane: Renoir’s “Two Sisters (On the Terrace)”. Familiar with the painting from its long tenure at The Art Institute Of Chicago (where it’s been part of the collection since the early 1930s), O’Brien remarked on the copy’s presence. Trump, of course, replied that, actually, it was an original Renoir—despite the fact that, at that very moment, the original “Two Sisters” was hanging on a wall somewhere in Chicago. After going back and forth with Trump on the issue for a few minutes, O’Brien eventually backed down, and, a few days later, was treated to Trump pointedly telling other guests on his plane all about his “original Renoir.”

O’Brien told this story recently to Vanity Fair, and, admittedly, as far as Trump’s various crimes against truth go, it’s one of the smaller ones. But at the same time, the smallness of the lie—and the pettiness with which Trump then flaunted his “victory” in front of O’Brien—only emphasizes the irritation of living in this man’s America. “He believes his own lies in a way that lasts for decades,” O’Brien said on the Vanity Fair podcast. “He’ll tell the same stories time and time again, regardless of whether or not facts are right in front of his face.”

SHIFT IN THOUGHT The president’s use of extrajudicial killings of drug users has sparked popular resistance among those who prefer rule of law and presumption of innocence.

OCTOBER 18, 2017 —One gift to the world from the Philippines has been the term “people power,” or peaceful resistance in the streets against a leader’s arbitrary rule and violent suppression. In 1986, it led to a dictator’s fall and inspired pro-democracy protests in other countries. Three decades later, Filipinos are at it again.
