Accepting your darkest emotions is the key to reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety, and improving mental wellbeing — Quartz
Rumi, the 13th-century Sufi poet, famously compared emotions—”a joy, a depression, a meanness”—to “unexpected visitors.” His advice was to let them in laughing, but that’s not what we do. Instead, we pretend not to notice, or even hide.

New leadership, same old problems - BBC News
new money won't be seen till next year, new winter crisis is coming for sure, and the wait lists will get even longer. - Health think tanks argue that the 3.4% is really only enough to cope with rising demand, never mind improving care.

Hospital sources point out that the new money won't come to the NHS until next year.

Nothing extra so far has been allocated for this winter and the intense pressure seen in the first months of this year is likely to be repeated.

There is every chance that waiting lists for routine surgery will get longer and accident and emergency performance won't get better.

Even with the £6bn cash boost next year, there are warnings that there won't be any rapid improvement. His instincts will be to tell the service to get on with job with the money it has. But that conviction will be tested in the depths of winter if hospitals are struggling to cope.

An Exploration of Problematic Smartphone Use among Chinese University Students: Associations with Academic Anxiety, Academic Procrastination, Self-Regulation and Subjective Wellbeing | SpringerLink
International Journal of Mental Health and Addiction - Latest Results;; July 9, 2018 at 07:30AM; ;


Over the past decade, there have been an increasing number of studies that have investigated problematic and/or ‘addictive’ smartphone use. The present study explored the prevalence and correlates of problematic smartphone use (PSU) among Chinese university students. Few studies have investigated relationships between PSU and factors such as academic anxiety, academic procrastination, self-regulation, and subjective wellbeing. The present study proposed and tested a hypothetical model of relationships between PSU and these factors. A total of 475 Chinese university students completed a paper-based survey during class breaks. The survey comprised a battery of psychometric scales translated into Chinese translations examining the study variables (i.e., academic anxiety, academic procrastination, self-regulation, life satisfaction, and PSU). Path analysis was applied to test the hypothetical model. A good model fit was found (CFI = 1.00, RMSEA = 0.008), in which PSU predicted academic procrastination (β = 0.21, p < 0.001) and academic anxiety (β = 0.18, p < 0.01). Also, self-regulation predicted PSU (β = − 0.35, p < 0.001), academic anxiety (β = − 0.29, p < 0.001), academic procrastination (β = 0.23, p < 0.001) and life satisfaction (β = 0.23, p < 0.001). PSU mediated the relationships between self-regulation, and both academic anxiety and academic procrastination. The present study enhances our understanding of the role of problematic smartphone use in relation to academic behaviour, mental health and wellbeing of college students.

Some highlights: Most of this research is on college students who are currently in the context of institution-regulated learning. Spaced testing and information retrieval improves later retrieval even for items that people believe they have already learned. Massing (including cramming) helps, but more learning is achieved in the same amount of time by interleaving -- alternating between material. For example, the French mathematics curriculum with algebra and geometry learned in alternating wee...

People risk unjust prison sentences due to lack of court healthcare | Society | The Guardian - Risks to children 'the biggest social justice challenge of our time'
Children’s commissioner seeks more help for young people in vulnerable family situations [...] Government spending on early intervention services for children through local authorities has been reduced by 60% since 2010. The research says investing in these services is cost-effective compared with the expense of putting a child into care, which can be as much as £55,000 a year. Local authorities have said there is a growing crisis in children’s social care caused by increasing numbers of children being taken into care or made subject to child protection plans as a result of the failure to provide early support for families.
