MENTAL HEALTH CHAT-(U.S. suicide rates surges to a 30-year high)
Special shout out to officers Justin Henry and partner Trae Cierzan who saved a woman who was attempting to jump off a highway over pass, about 80 feet above the ground.
Many research shows that mental health condition isn't the result of one event. It suggests multiple linking causes. Lifestyle, genetics and your environment can influence whether someone develops a mental condition. A stressful home life, stressful job or stressful school environment makes some people more susceptible, as do traumatic life events like being the victim of a crime. Basic brain structure, biochemical processes and circuits may play a role too.
Remember that you important and loved by many. Why? Because you are a living soul and you matter to us. So, if you are having suicidal thoughts, PLEASE CALL 800-273-8255.
|Trump continues criticism of Fed over rate hikes|
|President Trump on Thursday continued to criticize the Federal Reserve, saying that the U.S. central bank was "out of control" and had triggered this week's nosedive in stock prices by raising interest rates too fast. "It's a correction that I think is caused by the Federal Reserve with interest rates," Trump said. "We have interest rates going up at a clip that's much faster than certainly a lot of people, including myself, would have anticipated." Trump has slammed the Fed numerous times recently. The Fed has hiked rates three times this year under Trump's hand-picked new chairman, Jerome Powell. Trump said he had no plans to fire Powell, but was "just disappointed" that the Fed was raising rates so fast. The Fed raises rates to keep the economy and inflation from overheating, but Trump says the hikes are unnecessary because inflation is near the Fed's 2 percent target rate.

Uber driver stumbles into gift of new hands for his 11-year-old daughter after picking up engineering student
A stunningly serendipitous Uber meeting resulted in a college student giving a big hand to a little girl who needed it most. Back in February, University of Notre Dame student Michael Skinner called for an Uber to take him home from a parenting event. The chatty engineering major started talking to his driver—and fortunately asked about his family.
Doug Anderson talked about his 11-year-old daughter Tori. He and his wife adopted her from China when she was 5 and brought her back to their home in Indiana. She was born with only one finger on each hand, a condition that caused her a lot of embarrassment and insecurity.
He and his wife had approached different hospitals about getting Tori fitted for prosthetics, but doctors said she would quickly outgrow them—and they’re expensive. Money has been tight for the parents who have adopted two other special needs children. Doug, 58, took up Uber driving to earn extra money, and because he liked to socialize.
As fate would have it, the student in the back seat, Michael Skinner, was the perfect person to chat with.
Skinner works with an engineering group called e-Nable. The group 3D-prints robotic hands—and had been searching in vain for a child who needed one.
After several months of sizing and collaboration, Tori has been fitted with a new set of 3D-printed hands. She can now throw a baseball, write, and blow bubbles.
Her father, overwhelmed with gratitude, told the university, “I think that God absolutely had his hand in this.”
