Lessons from the ancient philosophers to help improve our lives today
We are meant to have desires and should worry less, said Aristotle, while Epicurus cautioned that most of the stuff we think we want won ’t make us happyFour hours spent wandering the aisles of Ikea for nothing. My boyfriend and I had long since stopped talking. I was ready to slap the next person who uttered a Swedish word. As I pushed my heaving cart into another room full of boxes I took a deep breath and fought the urge to cry. Thank God for philosophy, I thought to myself.I first got interested in philosophy as a teenager. It was on the curriculum at my high school in Paris, but its image was pretty crusty &ndas...

‘Romeo seeking Juliet in the animal kingdom’
Wondering how to woo your crush this Valentine ’s Day? When it comes to love, don’t wing it — take a lesson from the birds (and bees) instead.“Humans often believe romance is unique to our species, but it’s not,” said Dr. Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, co-director of UCLA ’s Evolutionary Medicine Program. “Sexual conversations unfold across the animal kingdom between individuals who are sizing each other up.”Mirroring the drama of the human world, romance in the wild is never certain. Plenty of animal suitors get rejected.“Unlike a dance or ritual with pre...

“Angela Rayner, Stockport local government branch and first-time deputy Labour leadership candidate!” said the member of Parliament for Ashton-under-Lyne, when she took to the rostrum at the opening of UNISON’s annual women’s conference in Brighton this afternoon to loud cheers. Taking a break from the campaign for the Labour Party deputy leadership, she described how two decades of activism had seen her start out as a care worker in the union’s young members’ group, alongside current UNISON president Josie Bird and junior vice president James Anthony. “My story is your story.

A new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine examines how Human Resources for Health (HRH) in Rwanda— a program funded in part by the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) from 2012 to 2017— affected morbidity and mortality outcomes for people living with HIV.

How Companies Teach Their Employees First Aid for Mental Health
At Delta Air Lines’ Atlanta headquarters in late January, 24 employees are arguing over which of them has the worst disease. Half of them had been given cards naming a physical or mental health diagnosis and were told to line up, from the least debilitating to the most. The woman holding “gingivitis” quickly takes a place at the far left of the line. But everyone further down to the right—low back pain, moderate depression, paraplegia, severe PTSD—keeps switching spots. “Severe vision loss,” someone says to the man holding the corresponding card, “are you a pilot?” He d...

Keep Your Teen Moving To Reduce Risk Of Depression, Study Says
(CNN) — Science shows moderate to vigorous aerobic exercise is good for us — it improves sleep; lowers blood pressure; protects against heart disease, diabetes and cancer; reduces stress; boosts mood; and fights anxiety and depression. It’s especially important in adolescence, where the first signs of depression often begin, studies show. But unless your child is an athlete, it can be tough to wean them away from social media and the ever-present screen to swim laps or go for a blood-pumping jog. A new study has some good news: even light exercise may help protect children against developing depression. T...

How Our Modern World Creates Outbreaks Like Coronavirus
“Everyone knows that pestilences have a way of recurring in the world,” observes Albert Camus in his novel The Plague. “Yet somehow we find it hard to believe in ones that crash down on our heads from a blue sky. There have been as many plagues as wars in history; yet plagues and wars always take people by surprise.” Camus was imagining a fictional outbreak of plague in 1948 in Oran, a port city in northwest Algeria. But at a time when the world is reeling from a very real microbial emergency sparked by the emergence of a novel coronavirus in Wuhan, central China, his observations are as pertinent a...

After Cancer Took His Mother, James Allison Taught Our Immune Systems How to Fight It
There once was a boy in Alice, Texas, who saw things a little differently from everybody else. Influenced by his father, a “country” doctor, he was drawn to science instead of football and conducted biology experiments in his parents’ garage. When he was 10, someone gave him a harmonica, but he never took a lesson or learned to read music, so he wandered the woods mimicking what he’d heard on the radio. A year after that, his mother died following a long struggle with lymphoma. What he still remembers decades later are her last, bedridden days when he spent hours holding her hand, and the burns sing...
