    (CNN)Astronauts have been venturing into space for 61 years to unlock the human potential for exploration. But the floating freedom offered by a lack of gravity also presents a number of limits when it comes to the human body and mind. Short trips to space from the early Mercury and Apollo missions have turned into stays of six months or longer aboard the International Space Station. The floating laboratory has served as an ideal backdrop for scientists trying to understand what truly happens to every aspect of the human body in the space environment -- radiation, lack of gravity and all. Astronauts on a Mars mission will need to be conscientious to work well togetherMany of those effects have been well documented over time, especially during the 2019 Twins Study that compared the changes Scott Kelly experienced after a nearly a year in space with those of his twin brother, Mark, who remained on Earth.Christopher Mason of Weill Cornell Medicine partnered with NASA on this research, and he and Scott Kelly spoke about those findings at the 2022 Life Itself...
    The news of Naomi Judd's suicide literally stopped me in my tracks. I paused and re-read my news alert. The report seemed unfathomable. I love The Judds, as the mother/daughter duo of Naomi and Wynonna were known. I grew up in Phoenix in the 90s, and it was nearly impossible to live in that part of the country at that time and not adore them. They were two of the most iconic country music singers of a generation. Throughout their careers they had 20 top 10 hits, including 15 number ones. They won five Grammy awards and Naomi won the Country Song Of The Year for writing 'Love Can Build a Bridge.' They are ubiquitous to all things related to women in modern country music, and arguably, as impactful as Loretta Lynne, Dolly Parton, and Miranda Lambert. Naomi in particular transcended country music, by hosting her own morning show on the Hallmark channel and a revamped Star Search. She wrote popular self-help books and achieved some notable accomplishments in acting. But Naomi and the Judd family were and are iconic...
    When Theo Langason was asked to co-direct a production of “All American Boys,” a play based on the bestselling young-adult novel about the violent arrest of a Black teenager, he considered turning the job down.  “I read through it,” Langason said of the play, “and frankly it scared me. I knew it had the potential to be a really beautiful piece but I also knew it had the potential to be really challenging — and not in a fun way.”  Langason, whose decadelong career in Twin Cities theater has included acting in and directing several plays focused on race and racism, knew the emotional toll that this kind of work can have on everyone involved in the production. As a Black Minnesotan, he felt particularly wary about being involved in yet another play focusing on the more challenging side of the Black experience. And because the play was aimed at a younger audience, he felt an extra weight of responsibility settle on his shoulders. “I have been in a number of ‘race plays’ or ‘racial trauma plays’ or ‘racism plays,’...

    BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4)– A new study from the University of Colorado Boulder shows that people who were exposed to more green space during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic had significantly less depression and anxiety than those who didn’t. The study was published in the March 2 journal PLOS One. (credit: iStock/Getty Images) The study also shows that during that time when mental health problems soared in part because of financial woes, supply shortages and nonstop news coverage of the virus, people flocked outdoors. The report shows that one-third spent more time outside than they did pre-COVID. “This research shows how critical it is to keep parks and green spaces open in times of crisis,” said senior author Colleen Reid, an assistant professor of geography in the Institute for Behavioral Science in a statement. “It also shows that, as a public health measure, more effort should be made to put in green spaces and make them accessible.” The survey ran from November 2019 to January 2021.

    Getty Nikola Vucevic, Chicago Bulls Nikola Vucevic has found himself shouldering a lot of the blame for the Chicago Bulls‘ recent dip in form. Yet, head coach Billy Donovan doesn’t believe the big man is at fault, or that his mindset is part of the problem. You see, in recent weeks, questions have arisen about Vucevic, most notably his mindset, and if it’s suited to smaller market teams, rather than a contending team with a rich heritage. “But in terms of his heart, his mental toughness of being in a bigger market, I have no issues with that. He always responds, and I give him a lot of credit. Anytime he, in his mind, has not played to the level that he’s wanted to play, that guy is in the gym. You don’t have to ask him; you don’t have to beg him to come in there,” Donovan recently told the media. Most of the criticism levied at Vucevic is due to a dip in production from the big man. Often viewed as one of the better three-point...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Over the past six weeks, Bills quarterback has been pretty average when he’s not playing against the Patriots. In four games vs. Tampa Bay, Carolina, Atlanta, and the Jets (three of which were played at home), Allen threw seven touchdowns and five interceptions, completing 56.6 percent of his passes and posting a 73.8 passer rating. In two games vs. the Patriots, Allen threw eight touchdowns with zero interceptions, completing 70.8 percent of his passes and posting a 134.1 passer rating.

    RICHMOND (BCN) — Contra Costa County will spend $95.5 million to expand the West County Detention Facility in North Richmond, adding more rehabilitation and mental health treatment space while alleviating overcrowding at the Martinez Detention Facility. The Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to award the contract to Montana-based Sletten Construction, with District 1 Supervisor John Gioia dissenting.

But he still favors housing the services it will provide to other locations, rather than putting money into another high-security detention facility. “It’s clearly a better project than when it started off,” Gioia said. “I will say this: if this could be segmented out to approve certain portions, I would vote for this — the mental health bit, the classroom space, the medical facilities and clinics, the re-entry and vocational services.” Illustration of the proposed West County Reentry, Treatment and Housing (WRTH) lobby and visitation...

    London (CNN)City children who have daily exposure to woodland have better cognitive development and a lower risk of emotional and behavioral problems, according to a new study published in Nature Sustainability.Researchers studied 3,568 adolescents aged 9 to 15 at 31 schools across London over four years to examine the associations between natural environments and cognitive development, mental health and overall well-being.Using vegetation satellite data, researchers calculated adolescents' daily exposure to "green space," like woods, meadows and parks, and "blue space," including rivers, lakes and the sea, within 50 meters (164 feet), 100 meters (328 feet), 250 meters (820 feet) and 500 meters (1,640 feet) of their home and school. A higher daily exposure to woodland was associated with higher scores for cognitive development -- measured through a series of memory-based tasks -- and a 17% lower risk of emotional and behavioral problems two years later, researchers said, adding that they adjusted for other variables, such as age, ethnic background, gender, parental occupation, type of school and air pollution. 5 natural ways to boost your mental health during stressful timesExposure to...
    Exposure to green space could be more important than ever for children now the Covid-19 lockdown has ended, a new study suggests.   Researchers compared the mental health of more than 3,000 children in the London area with their proximity to green spaces. Those who were closer to woodlands had better cognitive development and a lower risk of emotional and behavioural problems, they found.  Worryingly, data was gathered prior to the pandemic, meaning the health problems were likely exacerbated by a lack of natural space during lockdown.   The study could influence planning decisions in urban areas around the world, according to the authors at University College London and Imperial College London.  Building new homes in close proximity to grass, trees and woodland could optimise 'benefits linked to cognitive development and mental health', they say.  A lack of access to green space is linked to lower cognitive development, as well as a lower risk of emotional and behavioural problems, researchers in London report WALKING AND MENTAL HEALTH Walking improves well being and helps fight stress and depression  - Walking, like other...
    Osaka, 23, announced last week that she would not be taking media questions at Roland-Garros because she thinks journalists 'doubt' her and she didn't want to 'subject' herself to their tough questions More tennis stars are reversing their criticism of Naomi Osaka after she pulled out of the French Open on Monday and revealed she suffers depression, following a stand-off with the Grand Slams over her refusal to take part in a press conference that has triggered a mental health debate.  Osaka, 23, announced last week that she would not be taking media questions at Roland-Garros because she thinks journalists 'doubt' her and she didn't want to subject herself to their tough questions.  She was fined $15,000 and threatened with expulsion from the remaining Grand Slams, as well as being accused of trying to have her cake and eat it too. Osaka was the highest paid female athlete in history in 2019, earning $37.4million.  Veteran players spoke out afterwards to say while they sympathized with anyone suffering mental health problems, speaking to the press was part of the job and without...

    As a crewed mission to Mars becomes closer to reality, scientists are examining the possible effects of extended space travel on astronauts' well-being—including on their mental health. A new study attempts to predict that psychological toll by looking at scientists stationed in remote research stations in Antarctica. The isolated researchers reported feeling symptoms of anxiety and depression at various points in their stay at the South Pole. But the most notable change among the subjects was a continuous decline in positive emotions like satisfaction, enthusiasm and awe, from the start of the mission to its completion. Those 'feel-good' emotions didn't even increase as the mission neared its end, a common phenomenon often referred to as a 'third-quarter effect.' Scroll down for vide   Psychologists at the University of Houston studied the wellbeing of researchers in Antarctica to gauge how extended time in space could impact astronauts' mental health while they are isolated in the final frontier  Psychologist Candice Alfano, director of the University of Houston's Sleep and Anxiety Center, developed the Mental Health Checklist (MHCL), a self-reporting diagnostic for analyzing...

    ABCVALENCIA Updated: 09/13/2020 17: 58h Save The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Hospitalization Unit of the Hospital La Fe de València has put into operation a sensory space where to control, with the help of individualized care plans, the agitation crises of adolescents with serious mental health problems that require admission. L’Espai, which is how the team and patients have named the room, delves into the humanization and evolution of the paradigm in the care of these young people, health sources report. The room is a friendly space, aesthetically removed from the hospital environment, decorated with youthful motifs, and with adjustable intensity lighting and music. It is conceived as alternative to other intervention measures and its use is limited to very specific difficult situations or agitation crises. It is indicated for times when the person has not reached a maximum level of agitation that compromises their understanding or discourages them from accessing this space, explained the Nursing supervisor of the Child and Youth Mental Health section of La Fe, Nacho Tarazona. Each...
