    Thanks. Great post and great point. DeVos is the very prime example of reckless governing without a thought to consequences. This philosophy is rampant in Trumps Adm.

    Major depression is on the rise among Americans from all age groups, but is rising fastest among teens and young adults, new health insurance data shows.

    Depression rates also vary a lot state by state, with Rhode Island having the highest rate of depression at 6.4 percent. Hawaii has the lowest rate — 2.1 percent.

    The findings cover people with commercial health insurance — Blue Cross and Blue Shield — so they’re not fully representative. But most people in the U.S. are covered by a commercial health plan.

    Any idea why depression is on the rise?
    I have been back in the US and working since june now....this society drives people into depression and stress. I have a better place I can go back to any time I decide, if I didnt have that, I cant imagine the stress I would have to face.
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey

    Here's an assessment showing you are full of it and have a tendency to just make it up as you go along.

    You seem to suffer from the ills of misinformation and ignorance as you charged "americans" with.

    Thanks for posting this. People don't realize how a traumatic event in your life can leave you depressed and anxious. I just started looking into EMDR this week on the recommendation of my Doctor.

    You're dealing with a hyperbole merchant. Ever notice how often he uses all caps in a sentence?

    Well, it's actually worse than I thought. And I guess you were just too lazy to Google on the question, "What percentage of Americans think the Sun revolves around the Earth?", because the very first link that popped us was this:

    https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-...th-survey-says

    And it was a National Science Foundation study/survey that found that 1 in 4 Americans think the Sun revolves around the Earth, not 1 in 5 as I said.

    So you can either crow that I was wrong about the number, or you can attack the integrity of the National Science Foundation. Your choice, 'Reverend'.

    I've joked about this guy before, who attempted to prove that the Earth is flat by putting a level on the fold down table in an airplane. I'm serious. He really did this.



    And while it's so stupid it's funny, I have to say that at least this guy decided to try and come up with some kind of demonstration that would show a reason to believe the crazy thing he believes. Sure, he's forgetting/misunderstanding a few things about how gravity works, but he's trying. People do want to understand how things work. People do want to know where they are, and they want things to make sense. Absent a good education in how things work, they'll come up with all kinds of theories and tests and half baked ideas, and without a network of other people doing the same and discussing and trying to disprove their conclusions, they're just content to believe that they figured it out.

    Because believing you live in a world that doesn't make sense and where nothing is understood fully can be overwhelming, scary, and even depressing.
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey

    So here is where in academia one should pride themselves of "critical thinking skills", you seem to fail in this endeavor.


    "As alarming as some of those deficits in science knowledge might appear, Americans fared better on several of the questions than similar, but older surveys of their Chinese and European counterparts."


    So you were saying that we were behind europe in understanding science, that was your claim.


    You have been proven wrong.


    I don't buy the 1 in 4 number. You got out and aske people yourself. see if it matches up. Where is the link to the actual study with the sampling metrics? People like you simply and with gullibility believe what you are told without question.



    It's pathetic and sad. That's the real issue in this country, people like you who no longer think for themselves.




    Here ya go:

    This is an example how learned and thinking people look at studies like you provided.


    Critical thinking.

    Well, as I predicted, we now find you attacking the integrity of the National Science Foundation. Par for the course.
