Vulnerable to Depression If You Are in 40s

Depression is some sort of mood disorder in which you may feel sad, helplessness, worried or a loss of interest in life. Now new research suggests that 44 is the age at which we are most vulnerable to depression. 10 % of people have depression at some time in their lives. Depression happens most often in people between the ages of 24 and 44 years.

From the BBC article:

Data analysis on two million people from 80 countries found a remarkably consistent pattern around the world. The risk of depression was lowest in younger and older people, with the middle-aged years associated with the highest risk for both men and women. Andy Bell, of the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health, said mental health problems were extremely common – but he stressed they could occur at any time in life.

Faces of the Fallen-news stories and military reports

This screenshot from The Washington Post compiles news stories and military reports to assemble portraits of U.S. service members lost to the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The database, which was recently relaunched with newly browsable features and permalinks, offers both sweeping views of the operations’ tolls and individual profiles of each soldier or Marine who has died. Browsing through, you can view current data on which state has lost the most men and women.

You can click in to a profile, anywhere on the site, to read about the individuals behind those statistics.

After visiting site, I strongly feel that we will never learn from our history.

Are you looking for better bargaining results?

According to story published in Reader Digest, Indian edition, “…European researchers have found that women negotiate better with men and vice versa but that both men and women become over-competitive when dealing with someone of the same gender…“.

So next time you want to grab a business deal or if you want better bargaining results try someone of the opposite sex.

Researchers have suggested that companies can use this knowledge to their benefit, by selecting the gender of their representatives.
