Suicide Rate Of Men More Than 3x Women's = Women’s Mental Health Needs ‘Not Considered Adequately’?

Via Jeff, J4MB: This from the BBC, prompted by a small increase in the female suicide rate in 2014, compared with the previous year. Excerpts:
There is no requirement for the NHS to provide gender-specific mental health services, but its value was recognised by the Department of Health as far back as 2002 in a consultation document called Into the Mainstream, signed off by the then mental health minister Jacqui Smith.
It said: “There will be the need to provide single-sex services in some instances.”
The following year, the Department of Health issued guidance that said: “All organisations should aim to ensure that they are sensitive to gender… and the specific needs of women…
According to official annual figures for the UK, in 2014 the male suicide rate was more than three times higher than the female rate.
However, the female rate increased from 4.8 to 5.2 deaths per 100,000 people while the male rate decreased from 17.8 to 16.8…
The Department of Health said women receive more referrals than men to improving access to psychological therapies services.
More than one million women were in contact with mental health and learning disability services in 2014-15, compared with 829,677 men.

Assad Of Syria

Who Do You Believe?
Do you believe the White House Liar-in-Chief?
Do you believe the New York Times (rhymes with crimes)?
Do you believe the propagandists who pretend to be
the Western media?
Or do you believe Assad of Syria?
***
Damascus, SANA, President Bashar al-Assad gave an interview to Associated Press published Thursday, following is the full text:
Journalist: President Assad, thank you very much for this opportunity to be interviewed by the Associated Press.
President Assad: You are most welcome in Syria.
Question 1: I will start by talking about the ceasefire in Syria. Russia, the US, and several countries say a ceasefire could be revived despite the recent violence and the recrimination. Do you agree, and are you prepared to try again?
President Assad: We announced that we are ready to be committed to any halt of operations, or if you want to call it ceasefire, but it’s not about Syria or Russia; it’s about the United States and the terrorist groups that have been affiliated to ISIS and al-Nusra and Al Qaeda, and to the United States and to Turkey and to Saudi Arabia.

Amerika’s Killer Cops Are On A Rampage Murdering Everyone In Sight

How does “freedom and democracy” have public murderers who murder at will?
RT: Keith Scott's family has released a video of police officers fatally shooting him that was recorded by his wife, who was talking to police from a distance. It was released to NBC News after law enforcement once again refused to release their footage. 
“Don’t shoot him! Don’t shoot him! He has no weapon, he has no weapon,” Scott’s wife Rakeyia Scott says.

Yawn…Jews Are Furious Once Again

By Gilad Atzmon: I’ve a hunch Sadiq Khan knows exactly where to find the shekels for his next campaign.

The Sunday Express reports: “Jewish community furiousat re-election of 'antisemitic' Jeremy Corbyn"
Jewish campaigners have reacted with fury to the re-election of Jeremy Corbyn, warning that with the left-winger in charge, the Labour Party is “no longer a safe place for British Jews”. Maybe, but also maybe it is time to accept that Jews don’t feel safe anywhere -  not in France, not in Belgium, not in Monroe, NY, not even in Israel despite the IDF being one of the strongest armies in the world. But beware. If Jews do not feel safe anywhere, then makingthe Labour party into a Jewish safe haven may well be considered an anti-Jewish act.
It’s fair to say that Jews have worked hard to make the Labour party and Corbyn supporters, hostile to their interests and their political-lobbying culture.  Yet, despite the intensive Jewish campaign against Jeremy Corbyn, the veteran Left leader again won the mandate by a landslide  (62% of the votes). But in a statement released minutes after the result of leadership contest was announced, Gideon Falter, chairman of the Campaign Against Antisemitism, blasted: “Though we are an apolitical organisation …the Labour Party is no longer a safe place for British Jews.”

Introducing The US Military-Industrial-Elementary School Complex

Today’s highlighted article was published last month, but I didn’t read it at the time and I’m guessing you didn’t either.
What’s so uniquely tragic about the the intrusion of the police state into America’s schools, is it appears the parents themselves are the ones demanding it. This is in contrast to an overbearing surveillance state implemented by government in secret, as well as by private corporations via lengthy terms of service agreements nobody actually reads.
What follows are excerpts from a very important article published at The NationThe School-Security Industry Is Cashing In Big on Public Fears of Mass Shootings:
“Security was the number-one factor for me in choosing a school,” explained one of the mothers I met late last winter at a Montessori preschool in an affluent suburb of Salt Lake City. A quality-control expert at a dietary-supplement company, the woman said she vividly remembers the jolt of horror she felt when she first learned of the Columbine massacre in 1999.

Mike Buchanan Calls Publicly For Resignation Of ‘Abusive Bully’ Sarah Champion MP, Labour’s Domestic Abuse Minister

By Mike Buchanan: This piece is in today’s Mail on Sunday. Excerpts:
Labour’s Shadow Minister for domestic violence was an ‘abusive bully’ who terrified her former husband and cost him £200,000 in their divorce settlement, a friend claimed last night…
But a friend of Mr Hoyland, 59, a best-selling author and mountaineer who was the 15th Briton to climb Mount Everest, last night accused Miss Champion of ‘distorting the truth’ and playing down the incident.
He told The Mail on Sunday the row was really about a pre-nuptial agreement signed before they wed in 1999 – and suggested it was not the first and only time she had hit Mr Hoyland. [my emphasis]
The friend said: ‘In retrospect, Graham was stupid to have married Sarah. She was an attractive, vivacious woman but also very harassing and abusive during their marriage. He became terrified of her.
