Everyone struggles with something. We all do our best to get by. But sometimes we need help—which we all know comes in various forms and is different for everybody. One which I think many overlook is podcasts. Yup, there are actually plenty which tackle mental health. And while they are not meant to replace professional therapy (If you think you need it, please don’t be afraid to take that step), they still offer ways to help you cope, by showing you that you are not alone, for instance, or providing you with facts that could help you understand what you’re feeling. Plus, they help de-stigmatize mental illness and and catalyze meaningful conversation around it. Here are some you can check out. Happy Place Fearne Cotton has done a great job of rounding up big names in entertainment and beyond to talk candidly about their own struggles with mental health. They open up about relevant issues such as body positivity, depression, motherhood, stress and recovery. … [Read more...] about These podcasts might help you with your anxiety

By Neanda Salvaterra WSJ Mon., May 13, 2019 Conflict—whether it’s between regional rivals in the Persian Gulf or corporate foes in the Permian Basin—is seeping back into the oil business. Oil prices shot upward Monday after Saudi Arabia said two of its oil tankers came under attack Sunday near the Strait of Hormuz, the waterway in and out of the Persian Gulf -- a critical avenue for crude transportation. “The geopolitical risk premium increased over the weekend,” said consultancy Global Risk Management in a note. That became evident once markets opened in London this morning. Brent crude, the global oil benchmark, was up about 2% and West Texas Intermediate, the U.S. oil standard, was last up more than 1.5%. The attacks came days after the U.S. said it would heighten its military presence in the Persian Gulf to counter what it said is a growing threat from Iran. Saudi Arabia has pledged to help balance global oil markets as Washington … [Read more...] about Oil Prices Jump After Attack on Saudi Tankers—Energy Journal
The plot is not only becoming thicker. It is becoming more and more surreal by the day. Yesterday, Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo presented several matrices to the media. The matrices allege links between the producers/distributors of the shrill “Ang Totoong Narcolist” video and personalities associated with the Liberal Party and the Magdalo Group. Things seem to tumble out quickly one after the other since the arrest last week of IT specialist Rodel Jayme. He owns the website from which the controversial video originated. Cyber sleuths at the NBI quickly tracked down the source of the malicious video. Jayme claims he merely sold access through his website and knows nothing about the video disseminated through it. Photos retrieved from his Facebook account, however, showed him in the company of a number of Liberal Party bigwigs, including Vice President Leonor Robredo. He did admit that the people who contacted him were, indeed associated with the Liberal Party. … [Read more...] about Bikoy

By Tara Deschamps Special to the Star Mon., April 29, 2019 New European rules that will make tech firms liable for copyright violations on their platforms have been both lauded by musicians and artists and lambasted by those who champion intellectual freedom. But one thing that’s not in dispute is that similar rules won’t be coming to Canada any time soon, experts say. The copyright directive, endorsed by 19 European countries in mid-April, will compel companies such as Google and Facebook to ensure copyrighted content — everything from music and films to news and books — isn’t posted on their platforms without a creator’s permission. Some tech firms may have to acquire licences to host such material. The EU’s 28 member states now have two years to adopt the rules and create their own policies. The reforms have been touted as a way to rein in powerful tech firms and restore revenues to creative industries, often paid fractions … [Read more...] about Canada likely won’t copycat EU copyright rules, experts say.
