- Yelling, threatening parents harm teens' mental health
By Allison Bond NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Threatening or screaming at teenagers may put them at higher risk for depression and disruptive behaviors such as rule-breaking, a new study suggests. "The take home point is that the verbal behaviors matter," Annette Mahoney, who worked on the study, said. She's a professor of psychology at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. "It can be easy to overlook that, but our study shows that the verbal hostility is really relevant, particularly for mothers who scream and hit, and for fathers who do either one," Mahoney told Reuters Health.

- No, Obama Didn't Take a Selfie, Learn the English Language
The Internet, having nothing else to do, is very excited about President Obama having taken a selfie at the Nelson Mandela memorial service today. What Urbandictionary says: But the question at hand is whether or not the photo that results from the image at right is 1) a selfie by Obama or 2) a selfie of Obama. It's clear that it's a selfie of Danish prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, the woman between Obama and British prime minister David Cameron.
- Reagan Was Right on South Africa
Normal and friendly relations cannot exist between the United States and South Africa until it becomes a dead policy. So said Ronald Reagan in his 1986 message to Congress vetoing the "sweeping and punitive sanctions" Congress was seeking to impose. Reagan equated the sanctions to "declaring economic warfare on the people of South Africa." His Treasury Secretary James Baker said Sunday that Reagan likely regretted this veto.

- 3 Foods Linked with Depression
In the study, researchers looked at the eating habits of more than 40,000 women, who didn't have depression at the study's start. It's all too easy to grab a cola on-the-go, but the same study in Brain, Behavior and Immunity study indicated that soft drinks as part of a regular diet may also contribute to depression. Fast Food: People who eat fast food are 51 percent more likely to develop depression than those who don't, according to a 2012 study in the journal Public Health Nutrition. Keep in mind that eating a small portion of any one food is unlikely to raise depression risk, so don't worry if you've just eaten your first heaping bowl of pasta in ages, or had the very occasional fast food burger.
- Finance watchdog welcomes Vatican reform, urges bank oversight
By Philip Pullella VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - A European committee evaluating the Vatican's financial reforms said the Holy See had made significant progress but needed more internal controls over its bank and another key financial office, sources familiar with the report said on Monday. The plenary of Moneyval, a monitoring committee of the Council of Europe, adopted a progress report on the Vatican following a July, 2012 initial evaluation that made recommendations on how the Holy See could clean up its murky finances. Moneyval will issue its report on Thursday. It is expected to add impetus to Pope Francis's efforts after decades of scandal, particularly surrounding its bank.
