Does depression ever go away
An executive tells a story of meeting with season-ticket holders, and the most consistent complaint was the team in question was striking out too often. The executive explained the trade-off was the club hit lots of homers and scored plenty of runs, yet the fans were still not satisfied. This was 2007. Let’s call those the good ole days. Strikeouts had risen for the second straight year in 2007, but only to 6.52 per team compared to 9.25 hits. But that Year 2 became Year 3 and Year 4 and, well, MLB is in a 13th straight season of rising strikeouts in 2018. April ended with each team whiffing on average 8.75 times per game. Conversely, teams averaged just 8.34 hits per game. Thus, MLB just had its first month ever with more strikeouts (7,335) than hits (6,992). How did we get here? There is no one simple answer. But I communicated with 16 scouts and executives and they all agreed: Even if you believe the game works in cycles, this one of high strikeouts and compressed batting … [Read more...] about Why MLB’s strikeout epidemic won’t go away any time soon

Photo by CONTRIBUTED PHOTO Home Savings Bank, formerly Home Savings and Loan Association of Youngstown , converted its charter at its holding company from a thrift to a bank in early 2017. It did so as part of its acquisition of Premier Bank and Trust. It's currently one of the market's fastest-growing community banks. In the banking kingdom, the thrift model may be an endangered species.The ever-evolving landscape for banking has all but eliminated most of the perceived purpose and benefits of the thrift model. It's one of several reasons the number of thrifts — an umbrella term for banks operating as savings and loan association (S&Ls, as they're more commonly known), and mutual banks, a type of model featuring at least a majority ownership by depositors that's existed since the early 1800s and at one time had a large presence in Ohio and through New England — has dwindled through the years. Regulatory and financial pressures are culprits as … [Read more...] about Ever-evolving banking trends lead to an S&L shakeout
Cecile Richards speaks to the crowd during the Women's March, Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017 in Washington, D.C. Jose Luis Magana/AP Looking for news you can trust?Subscribe to our free newsletters. Cecile Richards is somehow both an eternal optimist and a straight shooter, two characteristics that propelled her to fame on what was supposed to be one of the worst days of her career. In 2015, the now-outgoing president of Planned Parenthood testified for more than four hours in front of a Congressional committee that was investigating the discredited, heavily-edited videos which purported to show the sale of fetal tissue for profit by her organization. Testifying in front of Congress over a perceived wrongdoing is almost surely never fun, but that day she was grilled about everything from her salary to her apology about the tone of the employee in the video. She now appreciates the moment as a triumph. Looking back on that day, which meant enduring a lot of … [Read more...] about “Get Going Before You’re Ready”: Outgoing Planned Parenthood Head Cecile Richards Has Advice for New Activists

I was depressed.I can say it now, because I'm gratefully not anymore. But I couldn't say it while I suffered through it for 10 months, probably due to shame.I'm not alone. In 2016, almost 7 percent of the population experienced at least one major depressive episode. Yet the stigma and discrimination around mental health disorders, including depression, is still strong. According to 2017 findings from Mental Health America 56 percent of American adults with a mental illness do not receive treatment.Labeling myself as depressed compounded my shame because it meant labeling my children as "kids with a depressed mommy." And I wasn't brave enough to admit that yet. So I'm writing this, hoping to help other mothers who are stuck and need a hand to pull them out.What may have spun me into a deeper depression: My kids' needs came first, which meant my depression came last.Depression crept insidiously into my busy, full life and slowly robbed me of joy. I started retreating from life in the … [Read more...] about How I manage my ongoing struggle with depression as a mother

Grey’s Anatomy “Dream a Little Dream of Me” Sept. 25, 2008 I’m not going to say I’m disappointed by the Grey’s Anatomy season five premiere, because let’s face it – even if it could have been better, Shonda and Co. could do (and have done) a heck of a lot worse. For this episode, George kept it in his pants the whole time, and Izzie didn’t make me want to leap into the TV and strangle her – overall I’d call that a success. But last season’s lip-smacking finale set the bar pretty darn high. Is season five going to be the crowd-pleaser fans have been expecting? Not exactly a promising start. Mer keeps dreaming that Derek is dying and thinks it’s a reflection on her fear of commitment. Considering their history – um, ya think? In a refreshingly uncharacteristic move, she decides she’s going to bite the bullet and ask Derek to move in with her. Probably. Maybe. We’ll see.
