NYT “Tell it about You Mother” suggests psychoanalysis caused brain changes https://t.co/pgQ8YqXBv3. There is 1 fMRI image of 1 patient, no results nor analysis & the 1-patient data is a personal contact from the authors to the NYT. NYT should rewrite. https://t.co/We7OmvxoYF
Sorry to interject economics, science, and politics, in our mental health tweeting. But if this is true then we can still save jobs and our coastlines! Its BIG stuff. Us: https://t.co/2rTavy34n4
There is indeed more acceptance of mental illness AT work, but not more acceptance of seeing a history of mental illness on an application FOR work. All else being equal, management will likely choose the person without problems. How to change this is the question.

Do the ladies really understand the definition of "groping" or do they think it means rubbing someone's shoulders? Was Kavanaugh's groping repetitive & rough enough to non-confirm a judge? Is this video a valid extrapolation to all Trump supporters? All unanswered.
