Tax credit cuts - will the House of Lords stop them? - YouTube
what constitutional crisis? democracy. separation of power. checks and balances. getting the voice of the minority heard who have no voice, nobody, no lobby in Westminster to speak and represent them. // 1:44:00 David Cameron and Osborne lied to win a small majority in the general election, withholding the details of further (12bn) welfare cuts in the next parliament if they were (re-)elected. The British public is fed up. Same with LibDems budging on Student Fees post-election and students went on the street in London and elsewhere. & 1:58-59:00 because of that fact, what the gov is asking us to do to waive this through, is unacceptable. & 2:00:00 no taxation without representation & 2:34:00 Poor have to make even more hard choices that Toff can't even imagine to make. & If you don't create middle-class jobs (job creation/industrial policy), you have to top up pay with tax credit for low income. Period. & 2:47:00 proposed amendments were just soft paced cut style. no principles!

Pushy parents stress out children, Eton head says - BBC News
There has been a rise in the number of parents "living their lives through their ambitions for their children", the head teacher of Eton has said. Tony Little, who is leaving the school, said most parents had been "supportive" but there were now "more pressures on young people than ever before". And if his pupils failed to conform to parents' "outcome template", it could "add to the stresses" in their life. Eton employs a full-time psychologist to promote "good mental health". [...] "Children don't learn unless they are happy," she said. [...] In a wide-ranging interview, Mr Little also said he was "exasperated" by England's exam system and that learning subjects in "silos" prevented pupils from thinking laterally. "It's like an egg timer," he said.

Why Mental Health Disorders Emerge in Your Early Twenties | VICE | United Kingdom
[ nurture over nature ] What kind of things should people be aware of? It's important to know what you're at risk of. Let's say you had a parent with psychopathology; that certainly is a risk factor. If you've had a difficult time engaging in your social world as a kid, that's another risk factor. If your parents sheltered you instead of giving you some exposure to difficult things and showing you how to cope, that's another risk factor. The type of parenting that you had as a child can really affect the way you cope with the new challenges as you launch into adulthood.

Malcolm Gladwell Interview on Genius, Late Bloomers, Criminal Profiling, Intelligence Failure (2009) - YouTube
min10 Networking & making Conversation, "Everyone is interesting. Let them talk abt what they know well & do well. If not u may make them uncomfortable - ur fault. Just ask them the right inquisitive questions." // Career & Life Advice. Stay Humble (humility) & Smart. Overconfidence is the disease of the expert.

Ballet star Tamara Rojo says modern children lack discipline - BBC News
The principal dancer at the English National Ballet says many of today's pupils lack the discipline to succeed. Tamara Rojo told Radio Times magazine that children were often praised for quick results rather than hard work. "We live in a society that rewards fast success based on little talent or commitment, which is transient and a dangerous place to be," she said. "Do we want to promote instant success and instant failure, or do we want to promote self-esteem and hard work?"

The Case for Free-Range Parenting -
Such narrowing of the child’s world has happened across the developed world. But Germany is generally much more accepting of letting children take some risks. To this German parent, it seems that America’s middle class has taken overprotective parenting to a new level, with the government acting as a super nanny. Just take the case of 10-year-old Rafi and 6-year-old Dvora Meitiv, siblings in Silver Spring, Md., who were picked up in December by the police because their parents had dared to allow them to walk home from the park alone. For trying to make them more independent, their parents were found guilty by the state’s Child Protective Services of “unsubstantiated child neglect.” What had been the norm a generation ago, that kids would enjoy a measure of autonomy after school, is now seen as almost a crime. &! via

Effect of duration and age at exposure to the Stroke Belt on incident stroke in adulthood
Growing up in the Stroke Belt (the southeastern United States, in particular Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia) is associated with 17% higher risk of stroke - regardless of whether you flee from "the belt" after adolescence. Guess what's the confounding factor here? Being sedentary and consuming the crappiest incarnation of the SAD diet you can think of in a critical period of you live: childhood & adolescence. >> see &
