Anti-government protests intensify in Iraqi youth

Jan 19, 2020 by Andrew S Gillis.

Baghdad: Slower Iraqi youths intensify protests at the slow pace of the government's reform program, burning tires and blocking roads and threatening further provocation if demands are not approved. According to a report published in the Dawn newspaper, these protest rallies began in October last year, with demands for the correctness of the rule of governance, but due to ongoing tensions between the United States and Iran, it had declined significantly. Protesters fear that Iraq may be caught in geopolitical tensions, so last Monday the government was given a week to make progress on reforms promises. On Sunday, a day...

The prosecution is unconstitutional and dangerous, lawyer Trump

Jan 19, 2020 by Andrew S Gillis.

The legal team of US President Donald Trump has called the proceedings unconstitutional and dangerous for the first time in his ongoing prosecution proceedings. According to AFP reports, White House lawyer Pat Cipollone led the team, along with Ken, who joined Donald Trump's personal attorney Jay Sekulow and former US President Bill Clinton's prosecution in 1990. Alan Dershowitz, the star and prominent lawyer, was also present. Reacting to the president's accusations, the defence team said that the offensive process, which was approved by the Democrats-majority House, is a dangerous attack on the American people's right to freely choose their president....

These are the women battling to put an end to period poverty

Dec 9, 2019 by carol adams.

This week, changemakers gathered together for the Project Period event to discuss tackling the worldwide problem. There are £5,000 that women are having to spend on pads, tampons and the like. However you look at that, it’s a significant amount and, with a figure so high, it’s easy to see how many people struggle to afford the basic essentials they need to go through their periods hygienically and with dignity. Hundreds of millions of women, particularly those in developing and low-income countries, are held back from participating fully in their societies, accessing education and navigating their communities due to the...

This one question will stop you from worrying

Dec 9, 2019 by William Lewis.

Worriers who tend to lose themselves in overthinking need to test-drive Sarah Knight’s life-changing question, says Brigid Moss.  it’s Knight, the useful information comes wrapped up in a sweary package: Calm The F**k Down (asterisks author’s own). You may already be a fan of Knight’s way of drilling down to the logic of any situation. In her first best-seller, The Life-Changing Magic Of Not Giving A F**k, she set out her stall as a no-nonsense, straight-talking mixture of a therapist, life coach and wise best friend. Taking the Marie Kondo philosophy of “throw out what you don’t love” as her...

Followed around the internet by a pregnancy that ended too soon

Dec 9, 2019 by carol adams.

There were exactly two weeks between finding out I was pregnant and finding out that I’d had a miscarriage. It’s hard to explain quite how much my world changed in those two weeks – my entire mind was taken up by the pregnancy and all I wanted to do was learn about it. I spent hours on Google, discovering that the bundle of cells inside me was first the size of a poppy seed and then a grain of rice, finding out when my morning sickness would ease off and trying to figure out why my already sizeable boobs were...

It’s incredibly difficult being a young woman right now

Dec 9, 2019 by William Lewis.

Mental illness is escalating among women, says Daisy Buchanan – so why are we barely managing to treat the symptoms, instead of tackling the cause? I’m having an anxious day today. Even though I’ve followed the routine that keeps my fear at a manageable level, the tide of dread is getting higher and higher and I’m starting to feel very scared that I will be swept away by it. I am really, really worried about being late for a beauty appointment in a few hours’ time – not a work meeting or anything medically necessary, but something that will take...

How do you make habits stick past January?

Dec 9, 2019 by Hamza Sheraz.

Notoriously flaky at keeping resolutions, Brigid Moss finds an easy way to give small new intentions sticking power. Are you trying to create a new healthy habit? Piggyback it on something you do anyway. Want to run more? Put on your running shoes instead of your regular shoes, says Dr Sean Young, a world expert in making new habits stick. This is a strategy he’s created called “magnetic behaviour”. “If we already do something regularly, we can then pair up that behaviour with a new behaviour we want to start doing,” he says. It’s about building a habit, making it...

Self-care can involve Margarita cocktails and Babybel cheese

Dec 9, 2019 by Hamza Sheraz.

A “one size fits all” approach doesn’t work when it comes to taking care of ourselves. I have been thinking a lot about self-care recently. Mostly because I am going through a four-week-show stint at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. A lot of performers think it’s crucial to ramp up their self-care during the festival, going vegan and alcohol-free for the month, doing yoga every day and taking regular meditation breaks during which they polish their halos. After four years of coming up here for a month, I usually do something like this on an annual basis and have benefited from...
