Target fired me after I allowed one of my baristas to buy a Stanley x Starbucks cupI never even bought a Stanley cup for myself — I hate the cups if we're being honest. Getting fired emotionally destroyed me because I'd spent the past eight months putting all of my time and energy basically rebuilding the store’s entire Starbucks team. I would go on Indeed.com and apply for every single job that I qualify for — and jobs I was overqualified for. Now I'm going to look at every single job as a means to an end. I'm going to make sure I read every single page of that employee handbook, and if there's something I don't understand, I'm going to get clarification on it.

In fact, I grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas, a red state surrounded, by very religious people — many Southern Baptist. Many of us, however, were desperate to move out for better job opportunities and to grow our careers. The more populous places, like the capital Little Rock, are seen as a lot more diverse. There are typically better job opportunities there too, but those opportunities were very limited for me. It worked out, though, because moving to San Diego proved more cost-effective than the Bay Area.

We’re kicking off our new season this Valentine’s Day with a story from a Modern Love veteran. David Finch has published three Modern Love essays about how hard he has worked to be a good husband to his beloved wife, Kristen. As a man with autism who married a neurotypical woman, he found it especially challenging to navigate being a partner and father. To make things easier, Dave kept a running list of “best practices” to cover every situation that might come up in daily life. But Dave wasn’t going to lose Kristen, so he had to give it a try.

Part motel, part new-age clinic, the facility offers nightly rentals in rooms that come equipped with “BioHealers” –- canisters that the company claims exude “life force energy,” or biophotons. “There are some forces driving that: obviously the internet and social media, and distrust of traditional medicine, traditional science. Given the primary importance of health, it’s hardly surprising that unproven medical claims and products that seem too-good-to-be-true have a long history in America. “ Distrust of government and distrust of major institutions makes people vulnerable,” said Stephen Barrett, a psychiatrist and expert in unproven medical claims who launched the organization Quackwatch in the 1970s to highlight medical scams. As a result, low-level hucksters or those peddling unproven treatments often don’t get as much attention.

Elon Musk claimed on X that Neuralink's first human patient received their brain implant. AdvertisementElon Musk on Monday claimed in a post on X that a Neuralink brain implant has, for the first time, been inserted into a human patient's brain. "The first human received an implant from @Neuralink yesterday and is recovering well," Musk wrote. AdvertisementMusk previously said the Neuralink device would record and stimulate brain activity, acting as a "Fitbit in your skull," and claimed the implant would eventually "solve" conditions including autism and schizophrenia . "However, any for-profit medical device company also has a vested interest in generating a consumer base, which is why they make the sometimes grandiose claims they do."

The healthcare startup, Forta, raised a Series A funding round in January led by Insight Partners. Das added that because every child using Forta receives personalized care, the startup's AI is trained to look at health records and recommend treatments. Indeed, a clinician shortage is creating opportunities for digital health startups to build out mental healthcare services. Mental health coaching startup tapouts just raised a $3.2 million seed round, while incumbents Brightline and Hazel Health have each raised tens of millions of dollars to provide pediatric mental healthcare. Take a look at the 14-slide pitch deck Forta used to raise its $55 million Series A funding round.

Several callers reached out to 911 throughout the morning asking for wellness checks for relatives or friends they couldn’t reach. Political Cartoons View All 253 ImagesAnother caller at about 9:45 a.m. called to report that his wife was missing. In one case, a 911 caller reported that a family missing their 15-year-old son had been “ignored.”The operator answers were the same each time. Emergency responders weren’t able to help find missing people because they were still trying to get everyone to safety, still working hotspots and responding to fires. In one case, a 911 caller reported seeing flames and hotspots on their property and trying to put them out with a garden hose that was rapidly losing pressure.

The children's mental health market is booming as part of a larger cultural shift toward transparency around mental health and well-being. The startup uses a gamified curriculum that helps kids build relationships, manage their emotions, and develop academic skills. Indeed, the demand for youth mental health services has grown substantially in the past few years, according to data compiled by mental health investor Telosity. Parallel Learning, Daybreak Health, and Hopscotch all provide various mental health services for children and their families. At tapouts, children and teens ages 4 to 16 participate in weekly, 30-minute group coaching sessions centered on themes including expressing emotions, resiliency, and identifying unhelpful thoughts.

I sometimes struggle to follow the advice I give as a pediatrician about how to best raise kids. She's been doing this for days — and I don't feel the least bit guilty. All it's really going to do is make parents feel even more like they're not measuring up. And if I can't follow half the advice I'm supposed to give, where does that leave all the other parents? Let your kids know ahead of time which adults will take them to school and pick them up.

That's tough to write, even as a 31-year-old who's never wanted kids, without tacking on a "right now" at the end. I don't take the decision of whether to bring a new life into this world lightly. My partner and I have health insurance through our employers, but we've been between coverage before. Plus, there can be up to a three-month delay for health insurance to kick in when you start a new job. Now factor in prenatal care, postnatal care, diapers, and — even worse, I'm told — formula, as well as day care and education.

For those liberals and progressives who fret about the rapidly changing gender landscape, the agonized argument over gender-affirming care for children is different. The possibility that children might make irreversible decisions on this particular question that they later regret is, for many people, simply intolerable. So what are we saying, really, when we worry that a child will regret this particular decision, the decision to transition? For a binary identity that is supposedly so fixed and powerful, gender eludes and confounds us constantly. Efforts to define the terms “man” and “woman,” so popular on the campaign trail as gender identity has become a white hot issue in our politics, inevitably end in unsatisfying tautologies.

Lyew identifies as a highly sensitive person or HSP, a term popularized by psychology researcher Elaine Aron. AdvertisementImi Lo , a mental health consultant who works with highly sensitive clients, said that more awareness of HSPs is important. You may have some sensory sensitivitiesHSPs "can be quite physically sensitive," Lo said, whether they're bothered by uncomfortable clothing, strong smells, or loud noises. Being put on the spot can also cause a highly sensitive person's mind to go blank. "If you know that you are highly sensitive, then you can actually do things to manage your sensitivity, and even use it as a strength," she said.

Children who are angry and argumentative can be diagnosed with oppositional defiant disorder. Psychologists think it may oversimplify deeper causes, like ADHD, autism, and trauma. AdvertisementWhile most children throw tantrums or defy their parents at some point, there's an explanation for when it happens all the time: oppositional defiant disorder. Advertisement"When parents fear that their child has ODD, I want them to go, 'Great, we know what to do. "An old mentor of mine would always say to parents, 'You're not the agent of blame; you're the agent of change,'" he said.

The vast majority of marijuana use was during the first three months of pregnancy, the study found, and it was predominantly recreational rather than medical. A 2020 study found that women who used weed during pregnancy were 1.5 times more likely to have a child with autism. However, mothers using marijuana during pregnancy were 2.6 times more likely to give birth to a baby with a low birth weight, which can contribute to difficulties in eating, gaining weight and fighting infection. Indeed, the study also found that infants born to moms using marijuana were 2.5 times more likely to need to be admitted for intensive care. A warning for pregnant peopleAny woman using marijuana who discovers she is pregnant should immediately discuss the issue with her doctors, experts say.

LONDON (AP) — Measles deaths globally spiked by more than 40% last year and cases rose after vaccination levels dramatically dropped during the pandemic, leading health agencies said Thursday. The highly infectious disease triggered epidemics in 37 countries last year, versus 22 countries in 2021. “The increase in measles outbreaks and deaths is staggering, but unfortunately, not unexpected given the declining vaccination rates we’ve seen in the past few years,” said CDC's John Vertefeuille, said in a statement. Two doses of the measles vaccine are highly protective against the disease. ___The Associated Press Health and Science Department receives support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Science and Educational Media Group.
