    If you feel stressed about work, hugging your partner briefly may be your natural reaction. But now scientists have given their backing to tenderly embracing your spouse — saying it really does help to banish stress.  That's because a cuddle — even if it lasts seconds — can buffer the body's natural response to taxing situations. However, only women appear able to reap the benefits. No visible stress-reducing effects were seen in men. German researchers said this could be down to women finding hugs 'significantly more pleasant' than men. They also produce more of oxytocin in response. The love hormone, as it is known, interferes with the production of cortisol, therefore helping to reduce levels of the stress hormone in the body. Experts claimed their findings, based on 76 couples, show 'social touch may buffer against stress'.

    The good news is your home has never been worth more. That takes some of the sting out of the fact that the stock market is down, and that you now need to work 10 years longer than you’d planned. But take heart. The housing price run up is real. In 2021, the average U.S. home appreciated 17.1 percent, a record high, according to CEIC Data, a market research firm that has been tracking housing prices for 30 years. That’s something considering the average per-year growth is 5.3 percent. So go ahead, celebrate your home equity boom, and get your happy dance out of your system, because now comes the bad news: If your home has increased in value, you’re probably underinsured. “Along with housing prices, building costs have also gone up,” said Laura Adams, a personal finance and insurance analyst with Clearsurance, an online platform that helps consumers shop and compare insurance plans to find the best value. “You’re only covered to rebuild your home for the amount of coverage you have, and with the increases in building costs,...

    by Laurel Duggan   White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said opposing the Supreme Court precedent set in Roe v. Wade was an example of an “ultra MAGA” position in a Tuesday press conference. Psaki said President Joe Biden used the phrase “ultra MAGA” to refer to Republicans with extreme or unpopular positions who, in his view, played too large of a role in the GOP. She added that people who support Republican Florida Sen. Rick Scott’s plan to have all Americans pay income taxes and “sunset” Medicare and Social Security are also “ultra MAGA.” “Given two-third of the American people, according to a Fox News poll, believe that Roe v. Wade should be protected, if you’re on the other side of that you’re supporting an ultra MAGA position in the president’s view,” Psaki said. The Fox News poll Psaki was referring to found that, while more than 60% of voters said they supported upholding Roe, about half of respondents supported abortion restrictions which Roe explicitly forbids. It found 54% of voters supported state laws banning abortion at 15 weeks, such as the Mississippi...
