    The Air Force Academy is easing up on social distancing restrictions following two suicides that occurred less than a week after the measures were implemented to prevent the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus, The Colorado Springs Gazette reported on Tuesday.In the wake of the ongoing pandemic, the academy had sent freshman, sophomores, and juniors home but kept nearly 1,000 seniors on campus in an effort to push the students to graduation with just a few weeks left in the school year. The remaining students were separated across vacated dorm rooms with strict rules to keep the virus from rapidly spreading...

    The Air Force Academy is redoubling efforts to offer mental health care to students after the deaths of two senior cadets on the campus in less than a week. The deaths, in incidents on Thursday and Saturday, are thought to be suicides, several people familiar with them told The Gazette, asking that their names not be used because they were not authorized to reveal that information. The academy confirmed the seniors died weeks before graduation amid a campus-wide lockdown, and neither was caused by coronavirus or foul play. “These tragedies have caused incredible shock and pain throughout our USAFA family,”...

    It is vitally important, literally life and death, that the proper costs and benefits are weighed with the decision on how much and how long to shut down economic activity through the pandemic. As the coronavirus pandemic continues across the world, leaders and policymakers have scrambled to respond to the growing health crisis. In the United States, multiple state governors have issued statements urging their citizens to follow social distancing guidelines.Other governors have taken more extreme measures, issuing orders to effectively lock down entire state economies. The current goal of these responses has been to slow the spread of the...
  • Trump Is Right: Suicides Do Increase During Economic Hardship

    The Federalist ^ | March 30, 2020 | A.D.P. Everson
    The AP’s statement has no basis in reality. There is currently no body of research that demonstrates people are less likely to take their lives in time of economic hardship. The pace of information during the COVID-19 crisis has been extraordinary. Last week President Trump said thousands could die by suicide as a result of the economic crisis created by the coronavirus.The Associated Press (AP) immediately released a “fact check” on the president’s prediction, saying it was false. Over the weekend, The Federalist’s Tristan Justice reported more people died from suicides in east Tennessee than from the coronavirus. In the...

    Speaking at a contentious White House coronavirus news briefing on Sunday that involved testy standoffs with multiple reporters, President Trump declared that "the peak in death rate" in the coronavirus pandemic "is likely to hit in two weeks," and said the federal government will be extending its social-distancing guidelines through April 30. "The modeling estimates that the peak in death rate is likely to hit in two weeks. I will say it again. The peak, the highest point of death rates, remember this, is likely to hit in two weeks...

  • Prince Andrews's paedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein 'was driven to suicide in jail after suffering withdrawal from steroids', US pathologist claims

    Billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein may have killed himself in jail due to withdrawal from steroids, a pathologist has claimed. Dr Michael Hunter said Prince Andrew's friend, who died in August awaiting child sex abuse charges, could have been abusing the drug to build muscle and his libido. He said the former financier did not have access to them in New York's Metropolitan Correctional Center and got depressed - showing signs others must have noticed. Epstein, 66, had fatty liver disease, according to his medical records, despite not being an alcoholic or obese. He also had a 'ripped' body for his...

    The link between unemployment and suicides will be a concern that has to be addressed while the majority of the population stays-in to duck the coronavirus pandemic Even a pandemic can’t shock the media out of its blinding hostility to President Trump — witness this week’s absurd press eruption after he warned of a likely rise in suicides. “People get tremendous anxiety and depression, and you have suicides over things like this when you have terrible economies,” Trump noted at a briefing, adding that he believes the isolation many Americans face thanks to social distancing will also lead to more...
  • Preventing Suicide During and After the COVID-19 Pandemic

    The World Health Organization estimates there are 800,000 suicides every year across the globe. Suicide occurs among all populations, however those at greater risk live in 3rd world nations, rural and economically challenged regions, where access to lethal means is greater and access to good, quality physical and mental healthcare is less. Suicide is a leading cause of death, especially among the young, and is correlated with a prior (known or undiagnosed) mental illness and an external situation that creates an immediate crisis. It is important therefore to know a little about how a pandemic might affect those among us...

    As the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic continues to rage worldwide, some groups are working to help people survive by attempting to provide resources and material support to those in need. Unfortunately, others are using the crisis as an opportunity to spread death. Planned Parenthood has been exploiting the situation to expand abortion — but the assisted suicide lobby is now taking advantage of the panic, too. Alex Schadenberg, president of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, spotlighted a recent fundraising e-mail sent in the wake of the pandemic. While Schadenberg did not name the organization, he identified the author as Kim Callinan —...
  • Australia's "unofficial national anthem" Waltzing Matilda in Indonesian language.

    Australia's unofficial national anthem, "Waltzing Matilda" is a song about suicide. How can that be? Scroll down in this post for a glossary: It is worth noting that the Indonesian revolutionary war slogan "Merdeka atau Mati" (Free or Dead) can be made to work well rhythmically with the English "You'll never catch me alive" cred he. At least I think so. Indonesia is an incredibly free country. The West cannot afford to ignore it as a balance to totalitarian China. Who agrees? I have not ignored this huge republic.

    Al-Qahtani reportedly was upset he faced murder and war crimes charges. SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - The alleged “20th hijacker” in the Sept. 11 attacks tried to kill himself at Guantanamo last month, his lawyer disclosed Tuesday, saying the Saudi prisoner was distraught over a possible death sentence for charges later dropped by the Pentagon. Mohammed al-Qahtani cut himself at least three times and had to be hospitalized at the U.S. Navy base in Cuba, attorney Gitanjali Gutierrez said. Al-Qahtani made the suicide attempt after learning military prosecutors filed capital charges against him and five other Guantanamo prisoners for their...

    On Saturday, February 22, I received near simultaneous text messages from an old federal agent buddy and my boss that a dear friend had been found dead from a gunshot wound to the chest. I could not believe it. I went to the Internet to search for any public reports to confirm this information, which I hoped would turn out to be some kind of horrible joke or “fake news.” I could find nothing.Yet it was not a joke or fake news. As the weekend wore on, reports from legitimate news outlets, seemingly all conservative, began to trickle out that...
