by BRIG. GEN. WILLIAM C. MENNINGER, USA MILITARY psychiatry differs from civilian psychiatry in that the Army must be totally responsible for a man — not only for his food and clothing, but especially for his ability to participate in his particular mission. Consequently, when a man did not fulfill his function, the Army had to find the cause and, if possible, remedy it. In many instances the cause lay in his personality and in his emotional difficulties. Since there is a human tendency to retreat into illness under stress, it was not surprising to find that many men became ill when they were unable to meet the demands of the new life. Military psychiatry differs also in quality from civilian psychiatry. In the Army much more effort and time are invested in a preventive psychiatryan attempt to keep men healthy and to seek out causes for poor morale. Until comparatively recently, the majority of civilian psychiatric patients had to be brought to the psychiatrist by relatives, … [Read more...] about Psychiatry and the War
Afghanistan suicide attack
[This story originally aired on February 20.] In July 2020, Daniel Anderl, the son of federal Judge Esther Salas and attorney Mark Anderl, was shot dead by a gunman at the front door of the family's New Jersey home. Daniel Anderl, 20, took a bullet to his chest trying to protect his parents. By the time Judge Salas came to the door, the killer was gone. Her husband, Mark, was wounded. "I have direct evidence that he died heroically, that he had a holy death," says David Oakley, Daniel Anderl's godfather and a family friend. The stranger who came to Judge Salas' door had been holding a package, posing as a deliveryman. Just eight days earlier, a chillingly similar incident took place in California. When attorney Marc Angelucci came to his door to sign for a package, he was also shot dead. "He was just a down-to-earth, at the center of his soul a good-hearted person," Marc's friend, Cassie Jaye, tells CBS News correspondent Tracy Smith. "[Sighs] I was trying to make … [Read more...] about Federal judge whose son was killed in ambush: “My son’s death cannot be in vain”
The resignation of Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid could be the final blow for Boris Johnson's premiership after the political heavyweights attacked the PM's "lack of integrity", competence and leadership. The prime minister narrowly survived a confidence vote in him last month. Tory MPs voted by 211 to 148 in support of the PM, but the scale of the revolt against his leadership left him wounded. When Theresa May faced a confidence vote in 2018 she secured the support of 63% of her MPs - but was still forced out within six months. The prime minister saw 41% of his MPs vote against him, a worse result than Mrs May. Advertisement So, if Mr Johnson faces a similar fate, these are the candidates that could stand to replace him: Up until the last few months, the former chancellor was seen by many Conservative MPs as the frontrunner in the race to succeed Mr Johnson. More on Boris Johnson Nadhim Zahawi made … [Read more...] about Boris Johnson under pressure – who are the frontrunners for his job if PM’s time runs out?
Anti- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Twitter -users appear to have mistakenly trolled mental health hospitals located in the area that gives the couple their royal titles, Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Tweets targeted Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, an organisational unit within Britain's National Health Service in the county of Sussex. It has nothing to do with the couple's titles. Some tweets targeted a post about the organization's partnership with mental health texting service Shout, which is backed by Prince William and Kate Middleton . The negative comments tagged Shout's official Twitter account as well as the Sussex Partnership one. One comment on July 4 read: "Anything to do with them two lying scabs from America then it gets blocked now. Corruption attached to all Meghan Markle touches." Another replied with a critical blog post about Meghan and Harry only to be told they were not linked to Sussex Partnership. The account replied: "Yes, I see that … [Read more...] about Anti-Meghan and Harry twitter accounts mistakenly trolled Sussex NHS trust
Russian authorities have confiscated a World War II tank from the head of a "military-patriotic" organization after he ran himself and two children over with it. The incident took place on the St. Petersburg waterfront, where Pavel Baranenko, the proud owner of a Soviet T-60 tank, offered beachside rides for 300 rubles ($4.40), according to investigators. After taking two customers aboard in late April, Baranenko hit a snag and fell from the vehicle as his two customers tumbled over the front. "The court has ruled to confiscate and transfer in the possession of the Russian Federation, the T-60 tank, which is in the possession of the accused," said a statement from the joint press service of St. Petersburg's courts, state news agency RIA Novosti reported on Thursday. Footage of the incident taken by multiple witnesses on the beach shows the passengers struggling to keep their balance as the tank cleared a large, sandy bump.
