First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes depression. Wait … that’s not how it’s supposed to go. Unfortunately, for some, that is how it goes. While many newlyweds are blissed out, others are hit with the post-wedding blues, and it can be debilitating. “When the wedding was over, I was in a lot of pain,” Anna Shevel-Vreeland said of her 2012 nuptials. Laura Stafford, professor and director of Bowling Green State University’s School of Media and Communication, and Allison Scott Gordon, associate professor in the University of Kentucky’s Department of Communication, have conducted two studies on depression in newly married women. In a study of 28 women they conducted in 2016, nearly half of the participants indicated they felt let down or depressed after their wedding, and some participants reported clinical levels of depression. In a 2018 study of 152 women, 12 percent reported feeling depressed after their wedding. And a bad wedding … [Read more...] about The post-wedding blues are real. Here’s how to handle them.

President Donald Trump on Monday used his Twitter account to make false and misleading attacks against The Washington Post and Amazon, which share an owner but are independently operated. In the first of his tweets, Trump said the “Amazon Washington Post has gone crazy against me ever since they lost the Internet Tax Case in the U.S. Supreme Court two months ago.” The president was apparently referring to a Supreme Court case decided last month that will allow state governments to compel online retailers beyond their borders to collect sales tax revenue from consumers. Amazon, the nation’s biggest online retailer, took a small hit in stock price after the decision, even though it already collects taxes on its sales in all states. The company, whose founder Jeff Bezos also owns The Post, does not collect taxes on third-party purchases. It’s not clear what Trump meant by “gone crazy against me,” though he was critical in a separate tweet Monday of … [Read more...] about Trump levels false attacks against The Post and Amazon in a pair of tweets
By AURORE EATON July 22. 2018 11:46PM Fort Sumter on April 14, 1865 (LIBRARY OF CONGRESS) From 1863 to 1865 the large and busy United States Army post at Hilton Head, S.C., was well-served by an excellent military brass band. The Post Band, as it was called, was led by seasoned bandmaster Gustavus W. Ingalls of Concord, N.H. The majority of his musicians were from New Hampshire and had played in their local town bands. This included a core group from Fisherville (now Penacook) and the celebrated fife and drum major Saxie Pike of Manchester.Except for several weeks in the summer of 1863 when the Post Band was stationed near the battlefront surrounding the Confederate-held seaport of Charleston, S.C., the band remained at Hilton Head. There the musicians maintained a full schedule of rehearsals and performances.On April 14, 1865 the band participated in a grand ceremonial event at Fort Sumter. The Confederates had bombarded this U.S. Army post located on an island in … [Read more...] about Looking Back with Aurore Eaton: The Post Band at war’s end
