Death rates increasing for U.S. adults aged 25 to 44: CDC
Death rates are on the rise for young and middle-aged U.S. adults, with white and black people experiencing higher mortality than Hispanic people, according to new research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published Tuesday.
Between 2012 and 2017, the rates for white and black people aged 25 to 44 increased 21% each for both groups, while Hispanic people of the same age range saw a 13% rise.
Sally Curtin, a statistician at the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics and one of the report’s authors, said an uptick in suicides, homicides and drug overdoses contributed to the higher rates for the younger part of the group.

Pet Dog Mauls Schoolboy In Park, 10-Year-Old Left With Deep Wounds
A large dog attacked a 10-year-old schoolboy while he was walking in a park in Greater Manchester, England. The boy was mauled by the Doberman-like dog Monday.
According to local reports, the child was left with deep wounds across his back after being savaged by the canine. George Parker was found covered in blood and was rushed to a hospital. His mother, Catherine O'Neill, told the Sun that she was distraught after seeing her son was brutally attacked by the dog.
"He had blood marks all over him. He lifted his top up and I saw all the scratches and cuts," the mother told Manchester Evening News. "He said he'd gone onto the field and asked the owner if he was friendly. The dog was off the lead... The children said it was a black and brown dog. I phoned 101. He was crying and was upset. He was a bit quiet, which is not like George."
The mother also added that the owner of the dog left the scene when the attack took place, leaving her son injured. The 34-year-old expressed concern that the attack might make her son fear dogs for life.

Back Off, Mom
My mom thinks she’ll help care for my first child, but she couldn’t be more wrong. How do I make this clear?
Dear Care and Feeding,
My husband and I want to have our first kid soon. Before we start trying, we need to figure out how to handle my mother.
We aren’t close at all. I maintain a polite relationship with her to minimize guilt trips and dramatics that arise when I keep the much-greater distance I would prefer. She’s learned that there will probably be a kid eventually, and she’s become obsessed with moving near me and being “Grandma’s Babysitting Service.” I’ve tried telling her that wouldn’t work for us, but she says, “You have no idea how hard it will be, especially after the second” or “Why have babies if you’re going to dump them at some day care?” or “You can’t afford good child care.”
We can afford day care, and while it’s expensive, more importantly, it’s not my mother. She was a big believer in corporal punishment and severe “Tiger Mom” parenting methods. I would never leave a kid with her unattended for even a few minutes.
We have major differences in values, and she thinks it’s her responsibility that her grandchildren participate in her religion (she embraces its most judgmental and hateful aspects), which is unacceptable to my husband and me. I don’t want her “help” raising my child, and I don’t want to deal with her guilt trips, unsolicited advice, and other intrusions into the happy and stable life I’ve built for myself.
She claims all her friends live near their grandbabies and take care of them when the parents have to go to work, and that it’s not fair that she might not get to do the same. She has started looking at homes in our area (where she knows no one but us), and, as she can’t afford to live in the city, she’s started telling us to move to the suburbs and get a house with enough room for her to live with us. This is not happening. Is there a way to handle this short of full estrangement while she’s living in a fantasy world and not my metro area?

Can I Use a Sick Day as a ‘Mental Health Day’?
Rosenblatt is director of communications for Accessibility Partners, a small IT consulting firm. The company is so small that it doesn’t fall under the Americans with Disabilities Act, and it doesn’t have to follow the same federal rules with sick leave that large companies do.
However, her boss has been accommodating, allowing her time to attend therapy and psychiatric appointments, to deal with medication changes and even time in inpatient treatment.
That kind of treatment toward mental health might seem rare, but there’s evidence that it’s less taboo than it used to be.
The World Health Organization recently classified burnout as a diagnosable health condition.
According to an Australian study, one-third of workers have “faked an illness” to use a sick day for their mental health.
But 26 percent of employers have fired a worker for using a sick day for what they see as a “personal day.”
So deciding to take your sick day as a mental health day can be a tricky decision, especially if you’re worried your employer won’t see it as legitimate.
Mental health is a disability
Here’s the thing. Changes to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 2008 expanded the definition of disability. This means that mental disorders like depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety and schizophrenia are protected.
So, if you’ve got a diagnosed mental disorder like about 44 million American adults, almost one in five people, you can’t be fired for asking for accommodations, such as the occasional mental health day.

Tips For Keeping A Positive Mindset

Mental health impacts our day to day life by affecting how we think, feel, and interact. It can change the ways that we deal with stress, relate with others, and make decisions.
Unfortunately, mental health is something that can be affected negatively by a number of things including mental illnesses and disorders. Mental disorders like anxiety and depression are somewhat common. In fact, more than half of all Americans will be diagnosed with some type of mental disorder at some point in their life.
Tips To Help Improve Positivity
One of the best ways to remain positive is just to emphasize postive thinking. It should be noted that positive thinking doesn’t mean ignoring problems when they occur or looking at the world when blinders on. It simply means that you should approach difficult or unpleasant situations in a positive and productive way in which you look to remain happy and find solutions when you feel they are needed.
