Home Pregnancy parenting Postnatal Postnatal oi-Shamila Rafat By Shamila Rafat on October 19, 2020 Postpartum Depression, or PPD as it is more commonly referred to as, is defined as "an irritable, severely depressed mood" that can be seen in new mothers.

In today's technological world, many aspects of privacy we once took for granted are practically nonexistent. Our smartphones know our precise location throughout the day; our web browsers can predict what we are about to search; and advertisers have access to more information about us than we may have about ourselves. Still, amidst these technological intrusions, we like to think that at least our internal thoughts remain private.

Millions of unemployed Americans are likely to continue receiving additional financial help as the coronavirus pandemic enters its fifth month, and the payment amounts are in the hands of congressional negotiators. Following the March passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, people filing for unemployment received an extra $600 a week. The measure is set to expire at the end of July, and with 17.8 million people still out of work, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle agree that continued federal assistance is needed. But Republicans are pushing for measures that incentivize people to return to work. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told CNBC on July 9 that he expects the forthcoming economic relief package to extend unemployment benefits. He wouldn't share specifics about what enhanced unemployment will look like in August but said it will be less than it is now. "You can assume it would be no more than 100 percent [of what a person was earning at … [Read more...] about Extra $600 in Unemployment Is Ending This Month—Here’s What We Know About Future Payments
Christie Mayeux, who has been an interim justice of the peace for St. Amant for almost two months, says she has been unable to hold court or process legal matters because she doesn't have enough records held by her predecessor. But John Hebert, who abruptly quit the job in January just days into his new term, said Mayeaux hasn't contacted him personally for the records and is more than welcome to get them. All she has to do is come over and pull them from his office and the metal storage container on his home acreage in St. Amant where they are stored, he said. "I've said that from the get-go," he said Thursday. "They can get a truck and trailer, and they can load everything up." The 390 justices of the peace in Louisiana operate primarily as small claims courts with limited jurisdiction where the matters in dispute are worth less than $5,000. They also handle other matters like evictions, marriages, notarizing documents and wage garnishments. Their courts are designed as a … [Read more...] about A mix-up over records has kept this justice of the peace from holding court. What happened?
