Has The Immigration Ban Caused An Increase In Mental Health Services?

Last week, graduate students at the University of Southern California petitioned the university for enhanced mental health services. They requested these services for “Muslim, refugee, immigrant, international and other marginalized student groups” in response to the president’s immigration ban and other executive orders that affect the student population. Is this a reasonable ask? In a word, yes.

The primary motive behind the immigration ban and the emotion it evokes are the same: fear — fear of being deported; fear of being permanently separated from family members; fear of going back to a country where the threat of persecution and even death are present. And that fear has a huge impact on mental health.

Fear is the body’s response to uncertainty and adversity. It has well-known physical components like sweating, rapid heartbeat, and nausea. Longer term effects of fear include stress, difficulty concentrating, and sleep disturbances. Research indicates up to 20% of women (8% of men) who experience a traumatic event — like the enacting of the immigration ban — are likely to develop serious emotional problems. This could mean an increase in the number of students seeking psychological services for relief.

LeBron James Apologized To Wife Savannah For Often Putting Basketball Before Family

When you’re trying to juggle a career, a marriage, a family and still hoping to find a way to carve a little something out for yourself, something’s got to give. In an attempt to excel in one area, usually our professional careers, many of us take for granted the other aspects of our life that require tender love and care. It’s one thing to know you’re slacking in such a way, it’s another to actually acknowledge, apologize to and celebrate those who’ve been put on the backburner. LeBron James is doing just that.

While speaking with teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, who have the podcast Road Trippin, he James stated that his drive to be the greatest to play in the NBA has caused him to, at times, sacrifice being with his family so that he can train, practice and play. It’s something he decided to apologize to wife Savannah for.

“I am addicted to the process. I’m addicted to the process,” he said. “It’s so funny. I just told my wife the other day, I apologized to her. She was like ‘What are you apologizing for?’ I said ‘Because the journey that I’m on to want to be the greatest to ever play this game or to the point where no one ever forgets what I accomplished, I’ve at times lost the fact of how important you are to this whole thing.’”

James Blunt Says Ed Sheeran Straight Up LIED About Getting His Face Cut By Princess Beatrice! WTF??

Is Ed Sheeran just dropping “alternative facts” on us??

Back in January, the ginger singer opened up about BEING opened up by a sword swung by Princess Beatrice last year.

The way Ed told it, the Princess had accidentally swung her sword too far back while performing a mock knighting ceremony on James Blunt at a party.

But now James is saying Ed’s Lego House is made of lies!

In a new interview with Shortlist, the Beautiful singer says the whole thing was something they jokingly made up but that Ed decided to run with it in the press:

“Ed was drunk, messing around, and he cut himself. We made a fancy story up; people fell for it. It was very embarrassing.”

WHAT?? But we’ve seen the cut! You can STILL see it! So which part was a lie?

“All of it. Apart from the actual scar. It’s bizarre that people fell for it. I blame him. He must be desperate – he’s trying to sell records.”

Seriously? That’s pathological!

When asked if they were even really at a party together when it happened, James said:

“Yeah, but I didn’t do it! He cut himself and I just patched him up. It’s made him look prettier.”

Hmm. James has been known to mess with people — maybe this is just his crazy sense of humor?

Because we can’t imagine a reason for Ed to lie; it seems like something that could be so easily disproven, by say, the sword-wielding Royal??

What do YOU think? Is Teddy lying or not??

BAPE Launches New BAPEX Type-1 and Type-3 Watches for SS17

Visit the original post to see all 5 images from this gallery.

BAPE has had a long-running partnership with G-Shock, which has resulted in some of the best looking models from the brand – their recently-unveiled white DW-6900 is just one testament to that long legacy.

Despite their success with G-Shock however, that isn’t to say BAPE experienced success with its own BAPEX watches. This time around, the streetwear label is focusing on their TYPE-1 and TYPE-3 models, with new versions of black, silver and gold available. As always with the TYPE-1 and TYPE-3, the release sees them donning a look similar to the Rolex Submariner and Daytona models, giving them a dressed-up look.

The watches are set to be released on March 11, where you can cop at your local BAPE store or BAPE’s official site.
