Why are so many working class whites killing themselves?
Between 1999 and 2013, the number of deaths per 100,000 people rose by 134.4 for this group. That’s more than a 20 percent jump in the death rate. Deaton sees only one parallel: “Only HIV/AIDS in contemporary times has done anything like this.” This hasn’t happened in any other advanced country or among any other demographic group in the U.

Let us build bridges
Coming back from a medical mission that treated the unfortunate Syrian refugees in Jordan, I could imagine the customs and border protection officer denying my entrance to the country of my citizenship because I am a Muslim. “I am sorry, doctor, but the rules have changed since your departure,” he would say.

LETTERS
I am thrilled that these young delegates are making their voices heard loud and clear. This is exactly what needs to be happening all over the world. It is our young people who are inheriting a fouled nest, and they are the ones who need to demand that our legislators do everything in their power to help stop putting more CO2 into our environment.

Gifts in a pinch
Well Dumbledore, we agree. Everyone needs socks. Especially if they are creatively designed. Collaborating with Rihanna, Star Wars, the NBA and more, Stance socks are both functional and thoughtful. They have personality. They have pizzazz. They will make you laugh.

Will upcoming move for Mental Health Partners make access to walk-in crisis services more difficult?

How a freelance journalist broke the Laquan McDonald story that may sink Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel

A CLIMATE JUSTICE REACTION TO THE COP21 AGREEMENT So we have a climate deal, but is it enough?
One of the most important things I’ve done is to be a part of a movement working to make sure my 2-year-old grows up in a world where elephants still exist. Where communities of people are empowered to protect — and be protected by — their forests. And where St.

IT’S UP TO US
While the nations of the world were putting the final touches on the historic Paris accord on climate change, I stood below the Eiffel tower gripping a 100 meter long banner with a simple, salient message, “It’s Up to Us to Leave It in the Ground.

20 years behind Europe
AD takes place naturally and is the force behind phenomena such as swamp gas, in which natural wetlands produce methane through the breakdown of organic material; and fool’s fire, in which the methane is ignited, creating glowing orbs of light. But, in the non-natural state, AD occurs in specialized tanks called anaerobic digesters.

THE MIND-BODY SOLUTION
Carl Jung believed reaching full potential as a human required exploration of our deepest thoughts, those feelings that lay buried deep beneath our consciousness.

SNAPSHOT OF FEMININITY
The painting shook my inner girl and reminded me of the goopy glitter jelly that came in childhood makeup training kits; the agony a blemish could cause in adolescence, and drunkenly navigating my bathroom counter in my current twentysomething-hood looking for the makeup remover to wipe off the mask I painted on before going out.

Celebrate
For those who desire a different holiday this December, there exists a joyous festival to celebrate instead: “Festivus, for the rest of us!” The holiday came into the public sphere on the sitcom Seinfeld through Frank Costanza, who wanted to avoid the commercial and religious aspect of other holidays.
