Jamie Lynn Spears Tells Britney’s Haters To GTFO Amid Pop Star’s Mental Health Issues! – Perez Hilton

While Brit stayed quiet, Jamie Lynn couldn’t leave without letting the woman have it. She snapped: Ha! “Tell em, gurl! Watch the vintage moment (below): View this post on Instagram Jamie’s Insta-guarding comes as Britney reaches the end of her 30-day stay at a Los Angeles-area mental health facility, which she reportedly checked herself into last month. Based on the latest we’re hearing from TMZ, Jamie would have been unable to force Britney into a mental health facility due to the type of conservatorship she has. The outlet reports that the songstress’s conservatorship does not allow a conservator — who would be Jamie, in this case — to force someone into a mental health facility. The outlet’s insiders insist that …

Oracle turns to innovation hubs to drive cultural and business shift to cloud

Oracle was founded in 1977. While it’s not exactly GE or IBM, which date back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries respectively, it is old enough to be experiencing a fair bit of disruption in its own right. For a good part of its existence, it sold databases to some of the biggest companies in the world. But today, as the market changes and shifts from on-prem data centers to the cloud, how does a company like Oracle make that transition? Of course, Oracle has been making the shift to the cloud for the last several years, but it would be fair to say that it came late. Plus, it takes more than building some data centers and …

More mothers are ending up behind bars. Meeting the needs of their children is becoming a bigger priority

Atlanta (CNN)It’s just before sunrise on a Saturday morning, and the first few children are slowly trickling in. They’ve arrived at an office space that could easily be mistaken for a cheerful elementary school classroom, with its bright primary colors and cubbies along the wall. The teenagers slump onto couches, while the littlest ones mostly stand, rubbing sleepy eyes. “We’re all one here,” says Charlene, who asked that her last name not be used because of the stigma of incarceration. “You don’t feel so bad visiting your daughter in prison. It feels like we’re just going on an outing.” These outings are the creation of Sandra Barnhill and her staff at Foreverfamily. Every month, caregivers and children pick up breakfasts …

Workers are creating massive wealth. Why are corporations hoarding it all? | Cory Booker

Our economy works best when no one is left on the sidelines, and when American workers are able to fully participate in the economy they help drive, writes senator Cory Booker Every day Carol Ruiz wakes up at 3.30am and goes to an airline catering service at Newark airport, where she helps prepare the food carts that flight attendants push up and down the aisle. She organizes the napkins, creamers, sugar and cups that go on the beverage cart, cleans the glasses and silverware, and diligently tracks the champagne that goes on the carts for first class passengers. At the end of her 40-hour week she takes home $345. The average airline CEO makes that amounthave barely risen in four …

Life lessons from the native tribe with the healthiest hearts in the world

(CNN)A few years ago, I read reports of an indigenous tribe living deep in the Amazon rainforest whose members had hardly any evidence of heart disease. In fact, the researchers concluded after a year-long study that the Tsimane, as they are called, had the healthiest hearts in the world, a title previously held by Japanese women. That night, we set up our tents in the middle of the village and began our life as Tsimane. Thatched huts surrounded us, with no electricity or modern conveniences. One day, I pulled out my iPad, tapping and swiping through the screen, and the Tsimane were slack-jawed and wide-eyed, looking at me like I was a sorcerer. I went foraging with the women, hunting …

Psychiatrists Say Mueller Report Offers More Proof Of Trumps Mental Decline

Donald Trump’s “reckless” response to the investigation into his campaign as detailed by special counsel “The singular reaction is perhaps indicative of the extent to which the president is, as with his contrary reaction to Russia’s attack on the integrity and validity of our process of electing a president, preoccupied with himself to the point where he does not even consider the good of the nation,” states The report bears an unwieldy title: “Mental Health Analysis of the Special Counsel’s Report on the Investigation Into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.” The authors’ chosen subtitle, though, goes more to the heart of their thesis: “If One is Too Incompetent to Commit a Crime, Despite Trying Hard, Is One Competent …

Worlds First Malaria Vaccine Begins Landmark Pilot Program In Malawi

Yesterday, a landmark pilot program that aims to distribute the world’s first malaria vaccine went live in Malawi. In the next few weeks, the same immunization program will also begin in Kenya and Ghana. It is hoped the new initiative will save the lives of tens of thousands of children at risk of the deadly disease. The vaccine, known as RTS,S, is the first ever vaccine shown to significantly reduce malaria in children. In clinical trials, the vaccine was effective at preventing 40 percent of malaria cases, 30 percent of severe cases, and 60 percent of severe malaria anemia cases (the most common reason children die from malaria). While these success rates are lower than those of common vaccines for other …

Smell Of Food May Begin On The Tongue As Odor Receptors Found In Taste Cells

The smell of dough rising in the oven and the first crunch of home-baked sourdough bread is a divine experience for many us. But what exactly is it that allows us to indulge in such a sensory experience? It seems some of that oh-so-sublime gluttony may involve smell receptors in the nose that are also found in human taste cells on the tongue. Writing in the journal Chemical Senses, a team of scientists propose that our sense of taste and smell “cross-talk” before reaching the brain in the first study of its kind. Previous evidence suggested the two senses sent separate signals to the brain that then converged and formed our perception of food. The researchers from the Monell Center instead …

More female teachers report upskirting

Offenders now face up to two years in prison for taking a photo or video under someone’s clothing. The NASUWT, which is meeting for its annual conference in Belfast over the Easter weekend, says often victims are unaware that the abuse has taken place. “Talking to members about it, the thing they find the most difficult is that quite often they don’t know that this has happened – the video has been out there and then it is drawn to their attention,” said general secretary Chris Keates. “Then they think, if I go and report it, is that going to make it worse because it will draw attention to the fact that the video is there.” Upskirting now a crime …

The breast cancer surgeon who got breast cancer

“Like many women, I did not check my breasts. I thought, ‘it’s not going to happen to me – I’m a breast cancer surgeon’.” Liz O’Riordan ended up having to give up the job she had trained 20 years for, after she herself was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2015, at the age of 40, she had a mastectomy and last May suffered a recurrence of the disease. Dr O’Riordan thought she would practise as a breast cancer surgeon for at least 20 years, but as it turned out she only worked as one for two years. Radiotherapy for the second bout of cancer left her with reduced movement in her shoulder, causing her to make the “emotionally very hard” …

Washington GOP Senator Blasted For Saying Some Nurses ‘Play Cards’ During Work

Walsh made the remark Tuesday as the Washington state Senate considered SHB 1155, which would provide nurses with uninterrupted meal and rest breaks.

If even Beyonc had a rough pregnancy, what hope do other black women have? | Derecka Purnell

A USA Today report showed black mothers suffer severe complications twice as often as white women Last week, Beyonc Knowles-Carter premiered Homecoming on Netflix.
