Trump supporters find new appreciation for safe spaces

Sunday 11:44 GMT

The app, which you might think of as would-be Yelp for Trump supporters, was launched in early March by a man named Scott Wallace, who hopes to help people like Cini to avoid taking a wrong turn into a business where they don’t take too kindly to people with differing political beliefs.

Over the past decade many on the right, including Trump supporters, have popularised a term for the type of person who goes out of their way to take umbrage at every perceived slight and to inflate the mildest of microaggressions into much more than they were: a snowflake.

BBC Radio 4 - Radio 4 in Four - Why is CBD on everyone's lips?

Sunday 11:44 GMT

CBD is thought to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm, with many arguing that it helps to relieve pain and inflammation and reduce anxiety.

At the moment CBD isn’t regulated, so you aren’t necessarily getting what is considered a functional amount of CBD in your product. Manufacturers can put a couple of drops in a bar of chocolate and charge ten pounds for it, without proving there is any benefit or effect at all.

Sunday 11:44 GMT

In an interview with Brietbart News published on Wednesday, Trump noted: “I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough – until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad.” In case you missed it, “they” are Trump’s political opponents, including House Democrats and the mainstream media.

A Trump speech condemning anti-Muslim bigotry would be 'welcome gesture': Josh Kraushaar

Sunday 11:44 GMT

President Trump condemned Friday's massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand, but National Journal politics editor Josh Kraushaar suggested that the president go beyond the remarks he gave at the White House.

“It would be a welcome gesture for President Trump not just to respond in the Oval Office but to give a speech condemning anti-Muslim bigotry and really giving a message from the White House to the rest of the world that this type of rhetoric that inspired this white supremacist killer is absolutely unacceptable,” Kraushaar said. Meanwhile, Hemingway urged everyone in the media not to “highlight” the killers of these attacks but to focus on the victims instead.

Parents don’t get enough sleep for 6 years after a child is born, researchers say

Sunday 11:44 GMT

Moreover, “following the sharp decline in sleep satisfaction and duration in the first months postpartum, neither mothers’ nor fathers’ sleep fully recovers to prepregnancy levels up to 6 years after the birth of their first child,” concluded researchers from the German Institute for Economic Research, the University of Warwick, and West Virginia University.

“While having children is a major source of joy for most parents, it is possible that increased demands and responsibilities associated with the role as a parent lead to shorter sleep and decreased sleep quality even up to six years after birth of the first child,” said Lemola.
