How to Fix a Broken Heart
Guy Winch, whose book, How to Fix a Broken Heart, debunks some common myths surrounding heartbreak. According to him, “In other words, love is addictive and heartbreak causes us to go through powerful withdrawal.” He also discusses why it's so much harder to be broken up with than to break-up with someone yourself. https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/love-sex/break-up-how-to-get-over-someone-fast-you-like-relationships-psychology-a8240891.html
Sterilize Trans people before changing Gender
Japan has upheld a law effectively requiring trans people seeking to legally change their gender to be sterilized. Takakito Usui, a transgender man who wants to change the gender listed on his official documents, had appealed to the court seeking to overturn Law 111, which requires applicants to "permanently lack functioning" reproductive parts to qualify for gender affirmation. The Supreme Court unanimously rejected Usui's case Thursday, ruling the 2003 law constitutional -- though judges added it was invasive and encouraged the legislature to review it. "It is unthinkable in this day and time that the law requires a sex-change operation to change gender," Usui's lawyer Tomoyasu Oyama told CNN.https://edition.cnn.com/2019/01/25/asia/japan-supreme-court-trans-intl/index.html?utm_medium=social&utm_term=link&utm_source=fbCNNi&utm_content=2019-01-25T07%3A31%3A04&fbclid=IwAR3RO_z8r_4Xm93C0HKFuUjj2v8CYR8qyUEEgRn3uo7Y3io2AOzMhnIPYhk
"Digital dementia" is the idea, coined by a neuroscientist, that constant use of digital technology can result in the deterioration of cognitive abilities such as short-term memory. Many of us struggle to switch off and that can create stress, anxiety and conflict. https://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/health-and-wellness/how-an-internet-overload-could-lead-to-digital-dementia-20171123-gzrdih.html
