    All of us experience certain levels of stress in today's busy world, but how can you tell if the level of pressure you're feeling is about to tip into something that could overwhelm you?   From perching on the edge of your seat, bashing the keys of your computer and using certain language on social media, top psychologists have divulged what to look for to spot extreme stress. Dr Nicholas Walsh, a lecturer in developmental psychology at the University of East Anglia, told FEMAIL people are often 'less aware' of things going on around them when stressed. He explained: 'It's always helpful to notice these signs.  Stress is associated with a more narrow attention as this helps us focus but it means we're less self-aware, so noticing quirky signs could be very useful.' 'We have more accidents and make worse decisions so advance notice could help avoid bigger problems. Psychology experts have warned about simple signs you could be in stress overload and on the road to depression (File image) Meanwhile a person's stress levels could also be determined by the...

    WHEN it comes to knowing if your eggs are off or not, it can be difficult to tell. You can’t do the usual sniff test to judge if they smell a bit dodgy, and the shell protects the inside to see if it looks a funny colour.  2As well as checking the expiration date on the side of the carton, there are four more ways to tell if your eggs are OK to eatCredit: Getty The best way to tell is always look at the expiration date, but sometimes the egg might actually still be edible after that.  Even though the use-by date on the side of the egg cartoon says they’ve expired, sometimes eggs stay fresh for much longer.  One expert has revealed the ‘tried-and-truth’ method to test whether your eggs are still alright to use.  FABULOUS BINGO: GET A £5 FREE BONUS WITH NO DEPOSIT REQUIRED There are just four simple steps to it, and anyone can do it.  Firstly, you need to make sure you place the egg in a bowl of water.  Then you need to...
    We all know that a will is a document that collects the last wills of a person. But beyond that, in legal terms, the only thing we know is that it is a really complex legal process. However, with the pandemic, many have been more interested in this document and how to prepare it. The high death rate from Covid-19 has resulted in 85,186 transmissions of home ownership by inheritance in Spain, the highest figure recorded by the INE since 2007. It is important to inform you of how to make a will, since it is the only legal way to record our wishes. In general, it is a simple and inexpensive procedure, but there are a series of costs, procedures and steps that must be followed. Also, keep in mind that there are several types of wills. The most common are the notarial or open will, that is, it is done before a notary; and the holographic will, which is a handwritten will.

    America is rejecting losers like this who have packed the courts for years. We won't be ruled by their failed ideology. Rather than any legitimate interpretation of constitutional law, all of the outcomes you can expect from the Supreme Court will now be solely based on how the decision will affect Republicans getting elected. It’s disturbing, because as I read and watch media figures discuss Biden’s lead, they bring up the Republican's lock on the judiciary as if overturning votes is just established precedent now. The federal courts, and especially the Supreme Court, have essentially been turned into an arm of the GOP. For the sake of the rule of law and its integrity, Democrats cannot allow this to stand.   This disaster was in the making for many years before Mitch McConnell made up a rule in order to prevent the first African American president from appointing a Supreme Court nominee in the final year of his two-term presidency. McConnell blocked every single judicial appointment for the two years he had control of the Senate. This allowed him to turn...
    Democrat Joyce Elliott is running a strong campaign to flip an Arkansas congressional seat We now have less than a week to go before Election Day, and with things continuing to look good for Democrats in most competitive races, we’re changing our rating in 11 contests―nine move toward the left, while the other two move in the direction of the GOP. You can find all our Senate, gubernatorial, and House ratings at each link. • AR-02 (Lean R to Tossup): We're as amazed as anyone that Arkansas' 2nd Congressional District around Little Rock, turf that does not share many of the hallmarks of suburban areas that have abandoned the GOP, is this competitive, but here we are. Democrats and Republicans alike have poured large sums into this contest, and polling has shown a battle that's now neck-and-neck between Democrat Joyce Elliott and Republican Rep. French Hill. Surveys have also found Joe Biden edging out Donald Trump, a significant turnaround from Trump's 52-42 win. • IL-06 (Likely D to Safe D): Republicans have shown little interest in targeting freshman Democratic Rep.

              Members of the Metro Nashville Election Commission met privately Friday, and at least one of the five commission members refused to say what they discussed, even though it was government business. Nashville attorney Jim Roberts told The Tennessee Star Saturday that he suspects commission members met to discuss ways to undermine the Nashville Taxpayer Protection Act. As reported last month, this referendum, if approved, would roll back Nashville Mayor John Cooper’s 34-37 percent tax increase. The referendum would also limit property tax rate increases to 2 percent every year without voters approving it. Voters are scheduled to decide during a December 5 referendum. Cooper, as reported, opposes the referendum and wants voters to reject it. “We don’t know what the meeting was to discuss, but come on. You don’t have to be a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing. They are getting ready to put the Nashville Taxpayer Protection. Act on the ballot,” Roberts said. “Metro is fighting tooth and nail to keep it off the ballot. What do you think...

    Independence Day is a time of celebration, but the Fourth of July firework displays can be extremely stressful for pets. The crackling booms in the sky make dogs and cats anxious and many will pace, whimper, hide or even become aggressive from the stress. Here are six natural remedies to keep your pet calm on Independence Day: 1. Exercise Early Activity is a great way to manage stress, as it reduces tension and pumps up endorphins (mood enhancers). Exercising your pet a few hours before the fireworks begin can help to settle them down at night. While the amount of exercise a dog needs will vary with age and breed, a brisk walk around the neighborhood will benefit most pooches. For added intensity, try active games like fetch, tug or Frisbee. Cats need exercise too, and interactive toys like “Da Bird” (feathers tied to a pole with string) can provide a nice workout. Most cats also love to pounce on toys filled with catnip or chase a laser light around the room. Source: Randy Robertson/Flickr 2. Try a...
    New York — Once you fall in love with celery it becomes your favorite ingredient in the kitchen. If you are someone who considers it a boring vegetable, these extraordinary culinary uses will surely make you change your mind Celery is not always as valued as it should be and although we probably always have some stems available in the vegetable drawerThe reality is that it usually stays until the end without being fully used.

And it is true celery is a wonder for health, do not be fooled by his discreet appearance which has even made many consider it one of the boring vegetables, the reality is that it is a food full of advantages; starting with its cheap price, its smooth and perfumed flavor, its crisp texture and its nutritional value that hides one very low calorie vegetable, which also stands...
    It would be foolish to try to predict the outcome of the 2020 presidential race with over four months to go before the ballots are counted. But let’s be very clear: if the election were held today, Joe Biden would win. Along with all of the other chaos going on across the country right now, that is what has Donald Trump in a tailspin. At this point, the president is doing two things in preparation for November. Employ grievance politics to motivate his base, and Do everything he can to steal the election. On number two, there are three primary strategies the president is counting on. Voter Suppression This has been a Republican strategy for some time now, with Trump egging things on to an unprecedented level. Since voter suppression efforts are launched by states, a good example is what happened in Kentucky in preparation for the Tuesday primary. Fewer than 200 polling places will be open for voters in Kentucky’s primary Tuesday, down from 3,700 in a typical election year. Amid a huge influx in requests for mail-in ballots, some voters...
    Caroline Brehman/ZUMA For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.It’s been a primary season full of polling-place disasters, and as Kentuckians vote on Tuesday, there’s reason to believe another one could be on the way. Amid coronavirus concerns, Kentucky has cut the number of polling places from its usual 3700 to just 200, with just one polling place each for the state’s two biggest cities, Louisville and Lexington. The likes of LeBron James have tweeted their dismay about the possibility of long lines and voter suppression. The most-watched race in the state is the Democratic US Senate primary between Charles Booker and Amy McGrath to decide who will face off against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in November. Primary elections throughout the country this year have been marred by long lines and confusion over mail-in ballots, and Kentucky’s may be no exception. But McConnell has been steadfast in blocking a series of bills passed by the Democratic-led House of Representatives that would make it easier to vote. Here are the major bills McConnell is refusing...
    When the media frantically warns of record spikes of coronavirus cases in Florida and several other southern states and predicts these states will become the next epicenter for the virus, people automatically conjure up images of Italy and New York City. Naturally, that is the desired result of the media-driven panic. In fact, the media has been predicting Florida would become the next New York since early April. However, once you study the data on who these states are testing and why testing is going up yet deaths are still declining every day, it becomes clear that the reality is the exact opposite of the panic the media is pushing. The reality is that what happened in New York City in March was an anomaly, and its unique dynamic is not migrating to other states. In fact, the virus continues to prove itself less deadly than previously thought and likely becoming milder as time goes on. Several weeks into the superficial spike in cases, deaths are plummeting, reaching the lowest level on Sunday since the beginning of the epidemic...
    Crises have a way of sorting the good presidents from the bad. Historians consistently rank Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt among the top three presidents for their handling of the Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II. By contrast, the string of catastrophes that trailed George W. Bush, from Iraq to Hurricane Katrina to his obliviousness to warning signs in the housing market before the 2008 crash guarantee that he will have a permanent place in the bottom tier of presidents. Also certain to be at or near the bottom of that list is Donald Trump. Trump has been able to maintain 40% approval ratings by effectively manipulating the lizard brains of white Republicans, but even before COVID-19 hit, Trump was considered one of the worst presidents in the two surveys of scholars done in 2018. Trump’s increase in attention to the COVID-19 crisis for the brief window of time between when he declared a national emergency (on March 13) until he shifted most of his attention back to his re-election campaign (roughly six weeks later) helped mitigate the damage somewhat, but his inaction from January 3 (when the administration claims to have...
    Let’s dispel a myth. Bad police officers killing defenseless black men and sometimes women is not the only kind of racism Black people face in 2020 America. Although it is a heinous form of racism that now, thanks to video, we can plainly see and that has led millions of Americans of all colors to peacefully protest, many of our white brothers and sisters still do not want to see it.  But even those who are recognizing it now need to know that police brutality is not the only kind of racism that Black people experience and carry each day. We carry the kind that we must suck up daily and suppress. The kind that breaks our hearts and taints our optimism. The kind that causes hypertension and strokes. The kind that keeps us in fear of losing our jobs, our lives and our children’s future. Racism kills, and not only in ways that are captured on viral videos. Racism kills the human spirit.  For weeks now I have been reading with great dismay and disappointment social media posts on...
    (CNN Business)When students at Queen's Grant High School in Matthews, North Carolina, return to class in late August, they'll notice a purple glow emanating from the vents as they walk down the hallway. The charter school has installed UV lights into its HVAC systems as part of an effort to eliminate viruses and other bacteria in the air."We rely on the student population coming in to stay open, so it was important to do everything we can to make sure our students are and feel safe," said Queen's Grant High School principal Josh Swartzlander, who said the school will also require students and teachers to wear protective gear. "We enrolled 20 new students right after we made the announcement."The usage of UV lights, which have been shown to eliminate Covid-19, made headlines in May after New York City deployed portable light devices on its subway lines as part of a massive cleaning effort.With the last school year upended by the pandemic and the start of the next school year months away, educators are weighing what they can do to safely...
    Things are slowly starting to get back to normal, as many restaurants and businesses are reopening after being shuttered for months due to COVID-19. But, let’s face it, this Father’s Day will still seem quite different than what we’ve experienced in the past. There won’t be any trips to a ballpark to enjoy hot dogs as you root on the Oakland A’s/San Francisco Giants. Large gatherings are pretty much a no-no, so that big backyard barbecue with the neighbors might not be happening. And going out to dinner can still be tricky. But none of that should keep you from treating dad to a fun day. There are plenty of ways to enjoy the big occasion — which happens Sunday, June 21 — while the Bay Area is still dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

    The Greek island of Ithaca is best known as the home of Odysseus, the protagonist of the ancient Greek epic poem “The Odyssey.” Nearly 3,000 years after “The Odyssey” was written, the city of Ithaca — a small community of roughly 30,000 in upstate New York — has passed a resolution which, in its own way, could foreshadow a different kind of odyssey. Yet rather than a literal journey through the ancient Mediterranean world, this odyssey is starting the city on a path to a post-capitalist world. The catalyst? A resolution passed by the Ithaca common council on Wednesday that asks the New York State Department of Health to authorize their mayor to forgive rent debt from the last three months for tenants and small businesses alike. The common council also asks for the mayor to have the authority “to obligate landlords to offer renters who have been affected by COVID-19 lease extensions at the current rate of rent during the duration of the declaration of emergency.” This makes Ithaca the first American city to cancel rent during the pandemic, a particularly timely move given...
    National protests after George Floyd’s videotaped killing in police custody are spotlighting disparities between the experiences of black Americans and white Americans that go beyond their treatment by law enforcement. Black people, who are twice as likely to be hospitalized for COVID-19, face especially unstable housing and job prospects. Black business owners can face an uphill battle securing financing and startup capital. Black taxpayers also face tax rules that, some observers say, keep the gap between black and white wealth wide. Median wealth for a black family is $17,000 and it’s $171,000 for a white family, according to one estimate. It’s a matter of what gets taxed, at what rate, and — equally important — what doesn’t get taxed, they note. “ ‘The tax code amplifies those disproportionate gaps that already exist, based on the way our economy works and the way our society treats African Americans.’ ” — Wilton Hyman, a professor at New England Law Boston “The tax code amplifies those disproportionate gaps that already exist, based on the way our economy works...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- To say the last week has been a lot would be an understatement. Watching George Floyd die on video while being pinned down by multiple police officers is traumatic. Hearing him cry out for help, for his mother, is traumatic.Yet sadly, this is a trauma black Americans have had to endure time and time again; watching someone who could be them, or someone they love die because of systematic racism and police brutality. The whole thing feels like a funeral - the heaviness, the sadness, the pain.What's encouraging this time seeing people of other races, who have not been impacted in the same way by police brutality and systemic racism speaking out about it, putting actions behind those words, and thinking about the role they can plan in creating real and long lasting change.California Gov. Gavin Newsom said, "We have to own up to some very difficult things. The black community is not responsible for what's happening in this country right now, we are. We are, our institutions over and over again, we are responsible we...
