Mental Illness and Violence: A Primer
There was a shooting at my alma mater, Central Michigan University, last week.
A 19-year-old student shot and killed his parents in his dorm room. His dad was a part-time police officer in the Chicago area. His mother worked at American Airlines.
His roommate was there at the time and saw the whole thing.
The student then ran and spent the day eluding over 100 peace officers. They found him later that night, about half a mile away along some railroad tracks.
In 2008, the FBI narrowed its definition of “mass shootings” to where four or more people are killed, typically in the same location. But in 2013, they widened it to a much more general definition: “an ‘active shooter’ is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.” (Read more here.) It was the twelfth school shooting this year. And we’re only nine weeks into the year.

Experts Say Long-Lasting Couples Always Do These 8 Things Together
When you see couples who have been together for years and are still happily in love, you may ask yourself what do they know that everyone else doesn't. The truth is, maintaining a long-lasting relationship isn't easy. Not everyone can do it. But if you want your relationship to last, there are a few key things you and your partner need to do.
First off, it's important to remember that relationships take work. As sex and relationship therapist, Cyndi Darnell tells Bustle, couples who last recognize that relationships are living things that need nourishment. "Relationships are not static monoliths," she says. "Just like a plant or a pet, living things need sustenance to survive. Love alone is not enough, especially when there's no identifiable expression of it on a regular basis."
Long-lasting couples not only love each other, but they also do things each day to show their love. Showing your partner that you care doesn't require anything special or out of the ordinary. It can be as simple as doing a thoughtful act of service or really listening when they have something important to say.
10 foods that sound healthy but really aren’t
When grabbing snacks with words like “fruit,” “veggie,” or “vitamin” in the name, it’s natural to assume these foods will offer us some level of nutrition. (Like, maybe at least some vitamin C… please?) The reality, though, is that a number of foods promoted to the public as healthy are really far from it. To make the best dietary choices, it’s helpful to get savvy about what’s actually doing your body good and what’s just marketing BS. We dug into food labels and chatted with Phoenix-based registered dietitian nutritionist Yaffi Lvovato get the lowdown on 10 supposedly healthy foods to view with a healthy dose of skepticism.

To The Left! How To Tell When You’ve Reached A Relationship Dead End
Have you been dating someone for a while and, even though you both agreed to be exclusive or continue out your “situationship,” you feel like everything just flatlined? You wonder, “should I keep trying or is time to cut your losses?”
Here are 7 things to consider to help you decide whether it’s worth sticking it out or if it’s time to move on
1. Your Time Isn’t Being Valued
These are the best — and worst — states in the U.S.
U.S. News & World Report released its third annual list of the best and worst states in America to live in, based on "thousands of data points to measure how well states are performing for their citizens," according to the rankings. And the winners and losers of 2019 may catch some by surprise.
Washington state takes the No. 1 spot, followed by New Hampshire and Minnesota taking home the bronze. The states achieved their high rankings by doing well in eight categories: Health care, education, a state's economy, infrastructure, the opportunity the state affords its residents, the fiscal stability of state government, crime and corrections and natural environment.
Some categories of measurement were given more "weight" in the rankings, based on a survey of what matters the most to citizens, according to the site. Health care and education were weighted the highest, followed by state economies, infrastructure and the opportunity states offer their citizens.
The Best and Worst Airlines and Airports of 2019
Had a bad experience at Newark Liberty Airport last year? You’re not alone, according to recent rankings.
The New Jersey hub ranked as the worst U.S. airport in the 2019 annual ratings from AirHelp, an organization that specializes in air traveler rights and seeks compensation in cases of delays or cancellations. See last year’s rankings here.
U.S. airports in general didn’t fare particularly well, with the highest-rated Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport taking 34th place of 132 around the world. Newark held the lowest U.S. spot, at 116. A major reason is weather-related delays, says Henrik Zillmer, AirHelp’s chief executive officer; they are a huge problem for American airports, compared with European ones.
New Study Finds 73% of Independent Musicians Suffer From Symptoms of Mental Illness
Digital distribution platform Record Union, which conducted the survery, has committed to donating $30,000 to projects supporting struggling artists.
Nearly three-quarters of independent musicians have experienced “stress, anxiety and/or depression” in relation to their work, a new study has found.
The results, which were published on April 30, are based on a web survey of nearly 1,500 independent musicians by Swedish-based digital distribution platform Record Union between March 21 and April 2. The survey found 73% of the population had faced negative mental health issues, with anxiety and depression topping the list of symptoms. Among those aged 18-25, the numbers are even worse, with 80% of respondents in that age range having experienced negative mental health effects stemming from their music careers.

14 Diseases You Can Prevent Just By Washing Your Hands
Why is handwashing so important?
Put simply, your hands are dirty. As they come into contact with various people, animals, foods, and surfaces, they pick up thousands of germs, bacteria, viruses and other assorted nastiness that can make you sick if they enter your body. “We touch our eyes, noses, and mouths with our hands more than we think, and this can allow direct inoculation of germs into our mucous membranes,” explains Janet Haas, PhD, RN, Director of Epidemiology at Lenox Hill Hospital. “We also use our hands to prepare and eat foods, so hands that are not clean can contaminate foods that we and others will eat.” But washing your hands has the power to minimize or even eliminate those risks—for you and those around you. For example, teaching people about handwashing can reduce diarrheal illnesses in immunocompromised people by up to 58 percent, according to the CDC. Another FYI: You should wash your hands immediately after touching these 10 things.
You’re probably washing your hands wrong
Time 100's LGBTQ Honorees Include Lady Gaga, Ryan Murphy, Indya Moore
Ryan Murphy — the gay producer of FX's Pose, American Horror Story, American Crime Story, and more — is among those in the "titans" category. His entry was written by Jessica Lange, whose acting career experienced a revival in part due to Murphy casting her in AHS.
"He is a born storyteller, and, like the best of them, he is constantly pushing the limits. I have often marveled at his uncanny ability at capturing the zeitgeist," Lange wrote.
"Ryan is an artist of unlimited creative power and talent. But, more importantly, he has a great heart and is a dear and fiercely loyal friend. My life is better for knowing him."
20 Popular Destinations That Are Unapologetically Anti-Gay
In many of the places on this list, LGBT rights improve every year. But, recognition rarely equals acceptance. In some countries, same-sex marriages are recognized and celebrated. But, toleration and acceptance of the LGBT community is far from universal. Being queer is illegal in nearly 80 countries and punishable by death, including some very popular travel destinations.
Although some of these countries welcome tourists, that doesn’t mean travelers are safe to be themselves. It’s crucial that gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer travelers use extreme caution while traveling abroad.
I'm Changing the Largely Male, Straight Tattoo Industry with a Simple List
got my first tattoo when I was 12. I knew nothing about tattooing—I just pierced myself with the needle and ink. There’s something about the aesthetic that I love. I’m 31 now and I have no idea how many I have. Maybe more than a hundred? They’ve all just become one. I’m running out of space.
I’m a queer gay guy and old-school tattoo studios are quite a daunting place. I’ve always had a weird relationship with any street tattoo or piercing places. They feel very commercial, very straight. When I started managing studios almost ten years ago in my first job, I worked for a female piercer—just us two—and it was great because the studio felt safe. When I worked in other places I didn’t feel as secure, so I decided to distance myself for a few years. I came back to it when an amazing team of artists asked me to work for them.
The Most Popular Easter Candy in Every State, According to RetailMeNot
Each spring, supermarket candy aisles are flooded with sweet treats to fill our Easter baskets—especially with marshmallow Peeps, a holiday staple. RetailMeNot decided to investigate just how many people prefer Peeps to other Easter candy by asking over 1,000 Americans what their favorite Easter candy is—as it turns out, the marshmallow chicks and bunnies were pretty soundly beat. Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs ultimately came out on top, with 32 percent of the survey respondents preferring them; Cadbury Eggs also did pretty well, with 17 percent. That was followed by jelly beans, at 16 percent, and then chocolate bunnies, which came in at a shocking 10 percent. (Is everything we know a lie?) Finally, Peeps rolled in at just six percent, and apparently, 73 percent of the respondents said they don't like Peeps at all. RetailMeNot also pulled results to find the most popular Easter candy in every state, and again, Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs reign supreme—Tennessee and Virginia, however, are very firmly in camp Peeps.
