    Democratic Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman held a huge lead over Republican Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania’s Senate race in a USA Today Network/Suffolk University poll released Wednesday. The poll showed Fetterman led his political rival by 9 points despite the Democrat suffering a stroke in May that hospitalized him just days before the state’s primary. He has yet to return to the campaign trail and has acknowledged that he “almost died.” Fetterman had an overall favorability rating of 45% compared to 28% for Oz, according to the poll. Half of the respondents viewed Oz unfavorably, while only 27% were unfavorable...

    President Joe Biden on Tuesday will seek to reassure the American people that tackling the worst inflation the nation has seen in decades remains his “top priority” when he addresses the AFL-CIO convention in Philadelphia, a White House official tells CNN. The speech comes a day before the Federal Reserve could raise interest rates as much as three-quarters of a percentage point as it attempts to get inflation under control. The issue has been bedeviling Biden and his White House for months after they downplayed inflation concerns last year. But without many options to fight price hikes, the President is...

    A recent study published by Oregon State University discovered that COVID-19 infected individuals have a higher chance of developing psychiatric disorders within about four months of contracting the virus. For the study, published in World Psychiatry on May 7, researchers used data from the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C). They matched 46,610 patients infected with COVID-19, which can trigger a respiratory tract infection (RTI), with control patients diagnosed with a different RTI. This allowed researchers to specifically look into how COVID-19 affected the mental health of infected individuals. No patients with any history of mental illness prior to 21 days...

    A majority of Americans said they believe the U.S. is headed for another Great Depression, according to the latest Rasmussen survey. A total of 55% of respondents said another 1930s-like depression was likely over the next few years — the highest finding since 2009, Rasmussen Reports said. Of that total, 25% said they thought another depression was very likely. The Rasmussen survey found that 34% don't think another depression was likely, and 11% were not sure. The survey of 1,000 adults was conducted May 11-12. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Sunday said the U.S. faced the "very real risk of...

    President Biden raised the alarm on Sunday about monkeypox, a viral infection fast spreading around the world, and warned that the disease, which can be spread as easily as through handling a contaminated object, is something “that everybody should be concerned about.” Monkeypox, rarely seen outside Africa, has been found in recent weeks in Europe and the United States. As of Saturday, 92 cases and 28 suspected cases had been identified in 12 countries outside of those African nations where it is endemic, according to the World Health Organization. There has been one confirmed case in the United States —...
  • Recession is ‘likely,’ former SEC chief economist says. Here’s his advice for how to prepare

    It's very hard to stop inflation without a recession," says Larry Harris, former chief economist of the SEC. While the impact may be felt broadly, every household will experience it to varying degrees. Still, there is advice that is universal. By nearly every measure, the U.S. economy made a stunning recovery after the coronavirus pandemic spurred mass shutdowns and layoffs nationwide. The labor market has added back millions of jobs and wages have gone up substantially, even among lower-paying positions. But soaring inflation and rapidly rising interest rates have most Americans worried that the good times will be short lived....

    SINGAPORE, May 20 (Reuters) - China is quietly ramping up purchases of oil from Russia at bargain prices, according to shipping data and oil traders who spoke to Reuters, filling the vacuum left by Western buyers backing away from business with Russia after its invasion of Ukraine in February. The move by the world's biggest oil importer comes a month after it initially cut back on Russian supplies, for fear of appearing to openly support Moscow and potentially expose its state oil giants to sanctions. read more China's seaborne Russian oil imports will jump to a near-record 1.1 million barrels...

    With inflation over 8% and the threat of a recession on the horizon, there are global concerns about stagflation, a combination of low economic growth and soaring prices. But is it something the average American needs to be concerned about? “At this point, we can’t say that we’re yet in a period of stagflation,” says Lindsey Piegza, chief economist at Stifel Financial, a financial investment firm. However, given the current economic situation, “it is a very real risk.” The Federal Reserve is in the process of raising interest rates to combat inflation that’s coming in at 40-year highs month after...

    Layoffs are sweeping across American businesses in the first few months of 2022. Recent startups like Peloton have already laid off thousands of employees this year. Even traditionally layoff-resistant companies like Netflix are making cuts. Now, online car dealer Carvana plans to slash 12% of its workforce. The reason, broadly, is twofold: Business growth is slowing, while labor costs are increasing. The combination is causing American companies across a variety of industries to slash headcount.

    A soft landing is better than a hard one, especially when it comes to the economy. It’s the difference between turning the booming Biden years—even with 40-year-high inflation—into a sustainable trend, instigating a mild recession, or something even worse. The Federal Reserve, the institution caught between a rock and a hard place, got even more bad news on Wednesday: inflation remains an issue. Although the Consumer Price Index saw a deceleration in April, consumer prices are still increasing at an 8.3% annual rate. The Fed famously has a dual mandate to promote price stability and maximum employment, and the central...
  • Russian Gas Flows To Europe Via Ukraine To Stop Wednesday

    Russian gas headed to Europe through Ukraine will stop flowing on Wednesday, Ukraine’s Gas Transmission System Operator (GTSOU) said on Tuesday. The flows will stop at 7 a.m. local time after Russia’s occupying forces disrupted gas transit operations in the area. According to the operator, Ukraine will no longer be able to accept gas transit from Russia via Sokhranivka. The move has the potential to disrupt supplies to Europe if an alternative path isn’t found. Ukraine has voiced its criticism of Europe’s reliance on Russian gas since Russia invaded, with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky accusing Europe of paying for Russian...
  • Study finds Mediterranean diet improves depression symptoms in young men (In 12 weeks: 14.4 points better on a 0 - 63 point scale for the Beck Depression Inventory - “significantly” better)

    Young men with a poor diet saw a significant improvement in their symptoms of depression when they switched to a healthy Mediterranean diet, a new study shows. The 12-week randomized control study was recently published. Lead researcher Jessica Bayes, said the study was the first randomized clinical trial to assess the impact of a Mediterranean diet on the symptoms of depression in young men (aged 18-25). "We were surprised by how willing the young men were to take on a new diet," Bayes said. "Those assigned to the Mediterranean diet were able to significantly change their original diets, under the...

    “2000 showed you can just about skate through a stock market event, but Japan and 2008 showed you can’t skate through a housing crisis,” Grantham says. Wall Street titan Jeremy Grantham has been warning of a “superbubble” in the U.S. since last year, arguing the S&P 500 is set to be cut in half as an era marked by exceedingly risky investor behavior begins to fade. Now, the cofounder and chief investment strategist of the Boston-based asset management firm Grantham, Mayo, and van Otterloo (GMO) is warning the U.S. may be headed toward a housing crisis as mortgage rates soar,...

    President Joe Biden and his administration appear perilously close to an irreversible severing of public confidence in his capacity to deliver prosperity and financial security as stiff economic challenges balloon into huge political liabilities. A CNN poll released Wednesday shows that the President's repeated efforts to highlight undeniably strong aspects of the economy's post-pandemic rebound and to offset blame for its bad spots aren't working. The main culprit is inflation, a corrosive force that the White House initially underestimated and has failed to tame. It's been decades since Americans have experienced this demoralizing cycle of spiraling costs for basic goods...

  • Antidepressants DON'T make people any happier, major study claims

    04/20/2022 11:04:20 AM PDT · by algore · 83 replies
    Antidepressants are no better at making people feel happier than taking no medication at all, a study claimed today. Patients on the drugs did not have a significantly better quality of life compared to depressed people who were not on the pills, the analysis found. Researchers looked 17.5million US adults with depression over 10 years, with around half on medication and half not. Results showed a slight improvement in mental health in both groups, regardless of whether they were on antidepressants. The researchers from King Saud University, Saudi Arabia, called for more long-term studies on patients on antidepressants to evaluate...

    More than four in ten U.S. high school students felt persistently sad or hopeless in 2021, according to a CDC field survey released late last week.

The results of the new CDC survey (pdf) taken between January and June 2021 show the trend continuing, with 44 percent of the students reporting feeling persistently sad or hopeless. “We know from other research that youth with poor mental health are more likely...
