Dr Jess Tyrrell, of the University of Exeter Medical School, said: ‘Our genetic analysis concludes that the psychological impact of being obese is likely to cause depression.
‘This is important to help target efforts to reduce depression, which makes it much harder for people to adopt healthy lifestyle habits.’
Dr. Idiot is getting it backwards. People are much more likely to be fat because they were depressed first and not the other way ’round. Then the lard-ass-ness can make the depression worse. There are plenty of people who are fat and not depressed, just as there are also plenty of people who are depressed but not fat. How does he explain that? Where the fuck do the “genes” come in? Shitty article, and most likely shitty science.
Treating the depression is much more likely to help resolve the obesity, than trying to get a depressed person to lose weight (good luck with that) is to resolve depression.
Think about it. Functionally both groups will/wish to achieve the same end. If you can count to 20 without having to take your shoes off you’ll see that it can’t be logically argued otherwise. In his podcast this week: https://thezman.com/wordpress/?p=15528, the Zman states that the opposite of the Open Society (Soros, et al) so many on the left are pushing for is not a closed society for an orderly society. I agree completely. However to maintain an orderly society you must be able to control who enters, and who is a citizen, and that means a non-porous border and sound immigration policy. At this point, zero is the number of immigrants we need, and frankly we need to deport the 30 million illegal aliens already squatting here and the tens (hundreds?) of thousands of “asylum seekers” currently feeding at the welfare trough.
Gutless commie punk Jim Acosta got his White House press pass pulled for being the biggest asshole on the planet yesterday. The best part though is when you see him cough up the mic immediately the second President Trump steps out from behind the podium.
I hope to see Acosta’s head on a spike in front of the WH before Christmas. What a great present for the whole country that would be.
“The sticker price of my Syracuse University education was $1,400 in 1971, my senior year. That is $8,600 in today’s dollars. The current sticker price at Syracuse is $43,000.” – from a blog post responding to this article:
So a college “education” today costs 5x of what it did back in the early seventies in adjusted dollars? That is fucking nuts. Do people in college learn 5x as much as back then? The obvious answer is a resounding “No.” Actually, a “Fuck, No” would be more accurate. It’s more likely they learn about a fifth as much instead.
And just what are the arguments that colleges make to justify these ludicrous tuition prices? Well, if you listen closely you can just make out that there are practically none. Colleges and Universities are simply acting as rational participants in the marketplaces would. They keep raising prices because people keep paying them even if they don’t believe that they’re getting good value for the money. In today’s world of credentials over ability, a college education has become the new high school diploma and the current belief in most of society is that you won’t be able to get a “good job” without a degree. Sadly, a college education provides no real guarantee of getting a “good job”:
Students who graduated into the Great Recession have struggled to find work that fits their learning. But according to research released on Monday, millions of college graduates over all—not just recent ones—suffer a mismatch between education and employment, holding jobs that don’t require a costly college degree.
The study, from the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, says that nearly half of all American college graduates in 2010—some three years after the recession began—were underemployed, holding relatively low-paying and low-skilled jobs.
According to a report on the study, “Why Are Recent College Graduates Underemployed? University Enrollments and Labor Market Realities,” out of 41.7 million working college graduates in 2010, 48 percent—more than 20 million people—held jobs that required less than a bachelor’s degree. Thirty-seven percent held jobs that required no more than a high-school diploma.
Here is a picture of Gene Tierney, who makes the manly heart sing.
Honing her craft under extreme conditions – she brooked the tempers of such autocratic émigrés as Fritz Lang, Ernst Lubitsch and Otto Preminger – Tierney emerged as a leading lady of equal beauty and depth. Gliding seamlessly from smoldering sensuality in Preminger’s “Laura” (1944), to sang froid psychopathy in John M. Stahl’s “Leave Her to Heaven” (1945), to a maturity and grace far beyond her years in Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir” (1947), Tierney attained a strata of celebrity that put her on par with fellow sirens Rita Hayworth, Lana Turner and Ava Gardner.
Rita Hayworth, Lana Tuner, Ava Gardner:
I will now sadly deface this page with the following:
Here is Hailey Baldwin, who is the “face” of a something or other fashion line:
