The state is sending 23 million residents “inflation relief” checks of up to $1,050 this fall to help ease the financial burden that the highest inflation in 40 years has placed on Americans. “California's budget addresses the state's most pressing needs,” California Gov.

How girls think about their bodies is subjective, but their perception is heavily influenced by a variety of external factors—including their own parents. Bottom line: If you say these types of things enough in front of your daughters, you're demonstrating a negative relationship with your own body and aligning your self-worth with what you eat, Dr. Egger says. “Healthy food, physical activity and the joy of being a fully rounded person who is so much more than their appearance helps model a more neutral relationship with your body,” Dr. Egger maintains.
This seems to be an unfortunate trend on TikTok: users posting videos claiming certain supplements or foods somehow “cancel out” birth control pills aka oral contraceptive pills (OCPs).

You know you're living in the space age when a rocket hits the moon, and the industry as a whole points to the sky and, like an angry teacher holding up a paper airplane, asks "Who launched this?!" Truly, that is what occurred this week as an unidentified rocket stage (!) impacted the lunar surface, forming a new and interesting crater and leaving us all wondering how it's possible to not know what happened. The short version of this story is that skywatchers led by Bill Gray had been tracking an object for months that, based on their calculations, would soon impact the moon. Based on their observations and discussions, these self-appointed (though by no means lacking in expertise) object trackers determined that it was likely a piece of a SpaceX launch vehicle from 2015.

Hutchinson described how senior members of Trump's staff knew there was a potential for violence on Jan. 6, Trump's demands for armed supporters to be allowed to enter his rally on the mall before the march on the Capitol, and how an irate Trump lashed out at aides and Secret Service members who prevented him from going to the Capitol. In his social media ranting, Trump referred to Hutchinson as a “a total phony and a leaker,” accusing her of being embittered after not receiving a job offer with Trump's team after his presidency ended.

“More than half of mass shooters exhibited clear warning signs before committing their crimes, which makes such laws worthwhile.”
“It’s very difficult to determine if a person with no obvious criminal or mental illness history poses such a threat.”
“We will not end mass shootings, but smart public policy can reduce them.”
"A wider net is bound to ensnare many people who do not actually pose a threat.”
“They may also further dissuade gun owners from seeking mental health treatment if they fear their guns could be seized.”
