A way out of depression? Not what you had in mind? Brain implant could help with depression, study says. No one knows how it works though (as common in today's neuroscience) and if there are complications:

The researchers admit little is known about how exactly DBS produces the “complex behavioral changes” seen in their study

The pattern: gold digging > no-fault divorce > single motherhood - affects royals as well: 

Late last year, Tessy had to fight off accusations in her native Luxembourg of being a gold digger.

The couple was married from 2006, six months after the birth of their son Gabriel. Their second son Noah arrived within a year. The couple called it quits in 2017.

The Daily Mail added Tessy has been forced to battle for a financial settlement for herself and her two sons.

This is a rare (probably the only one) book of Trump critique written before his presidency and election campaign, in 1991 in fact. The book is written by a former manager of Trump's casino. His biggest critique of Trump seems to be that Trump didn't know casino business well when he entered it.

Overall, the book resembles a child's resentment of his parents who didn't pay as much attention to him as he thought he deserved (in case of the author he also expected a higher pay from Trump for his expertise in casino business).

Amazing ... this indicates that the major reason for the current critique of Trump's past can be mostly attributed to the fact that he dared to go for presidency and oppose the current order of things.

Three stars because while the book provides quite interesting peek into Trump's life before his presidency, there is a bit too much of the author's whining about how Trump din't value his casino expertise.

Kutcher got himself caught in controversy: Ashton Kutcher admits he broke gun laws while tweeting about need for gun laws. From Twitter comments:

And he misses the obvious point. Several actually. If it's that easy for him to receive a gun illegally, what laws - words on paper - could possibly prevent someone with criminal intent from doing the same.
