Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) can happen to anyone and, contrary to what some believe, it does not signify weakness. In the U.S. alone , about 7 or 8 out of every 100 people will have PTSD at some point in their lives. An estimated 8 million adults have PTSD during a given year. One of the most well-known causes of PTSD is military combat, where life-threatening experiences, difficult decisions, and violence exact a huge mental toll. Overcoming the stigma of mental health issues has been a challenge in the military, but people like Army veteran Seth Kastle are out to change that through awareness. After serving 16 years overseas, Kastle found himself back home for good in Kansas, returning to his wife, family, and friends. Though he knew things would be different, he had no idea an extreme anger would build up inside so intensely it would hinder his everyday life.

When they revealed the Switch, Nintendo also revealed the portable console's possible battery lifespan. They estimated somewhere between two and a half to six hours of battery life, depending on settings and what you're running, of course. YouTube channel GameXplain put that assessment to the test, pushing the console's settings to the max (brightness, sound, wifi on) and letting The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild run on the Switch until the console entered sleep mode. Their console survived for two hours and twenty eight minutes, right up to Nintendo's lowest estimation. So if you find yourself stuck on a plane itching to play the new Zelda, don't forget to turn your screen's brightness down first. Read more...

By all accounts, low rainfall caused by the El Nino weather phenomenon plays a significant role in the crisis. In Mozambique, aid organizations told VOA Portuguese that Tete and Gaza provinces are experiencing a prolonged drought and people have used up all the food they had saved. In Ethiopia, farmers in the Borena zone told VOA Amharic that their cattle are emaciated and they are having a hard time selling them to buy food. Farmer Guyu Halake said cows that sold for about $440 before the drought are now sold for $17. Another farmer, Fekadu Jeldeta, said if assistance is delayed, the current drought will shift from affecting livestock to costing the lives of people. In Somalia, WFP said it is seeing warning signals similar to those seen in 2011, when drought and famine killed an estimated 260,000 people. In Baidoa, VOA Somali spoke to Muslimo Abdi Abikar, a mother of nine who said she used to have a herd of livestock including camels, goats, and cows.

The Drexler limited-slip diff also locks the rear wheels in a more gradual and natural way than the Active M Differential, allowing you to confidently use the throttle to help steer the car. The engine, gearbox and diff make the huge power more approachable, and the communicative chassis helps you anticipate the ACL2’s reactions. But despite the control you have, the car is still overwhelmed by its vast power. That makes it a real challenge to try taming, but as so many of its other attributes are a delight, they make the process of learning the ACL2 a pleasure. Image 4 of 11 Image 4 of 11 Price and rivals The ACL2 is just a one-off and isnt for sale, so there is no actual price. However, AC Schnitzer has given it an estimated value of €149,000. Its ferocious performance, aggressive attitude and fictitious price put it squarely in the sights of other, hardcore, track-focused cars like the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the Mercedes-AMG GT R and the BMW M4 GTS.

That’s a hell of a lot of brutalist architecture to take in, however striking you may find it. Third in line for highest extra travel time, meanwhile, was Edinburgh, hot on Manchester’s heels with an estimated 43 minutes extra travel time a day in the Scottish capital. Surprisingly, infamously congested London, ridden with its iconic red buses, extortionate black cabs, and a now incessant flurry of Ubers, came in fourth place, with the research showing that Londoners racked up just 40 minutes of extra travel time a day. Listen to me, reeling that stat off as though it’s not an absolute travestyYep, the facts are here, and they’re about as grim as we could have anticipated.

Environmentalists sued, and a court ordered the commission to take a new vote. A map showing the proposed route of the Pinelands Pipeline. (Credit: ABC Affiliate WPVI) Environmental groups fear the pipeline will harm the fragile Pinelands and set a bad precedent for future development. They say it will cause a loss of some habitat and increase runoff and erosion in an area that is home to an aquifer that is estimated to hold 17 trillion gallons of some of the nation's purest water. Four former state governors — two Republicans and two Democrats — also have opposed the pipeline, citing their desire to protect a vulnerable natural resource. South Jersey Gas maintains that in addition to providing a cleaner fuel source to the power plant, the new pipeline would provide a second transmission vehicle for natural gas to thousands of customers in Atlantic and Cape May counties.
