  1. Bullying, violencia y suicidio, problemas que asechan a la sociedad moderna y que deben ser atendidos también desde la religión Son muchos y cada vez más preocupantes los problemas a los que se enfrenta la población en general, pues en todos los rangos de edad hay gente que urge atención y acompañamiento. Ante las situaciones que parecieran cotidianas y que se han convertido en problemas sociales, los Testigos de Jehová han abierto las puertas para atender a quienes se sientan al borde del suicidio o no escuchados. Al dar a conocer la próxima Asamblea Regional que se llevará a cabo del 25 al 27 de este mes a la que esperan la asistencia de más de ocho mil personas, los superintendentes de los Testigos de Jehová, Omar Romero Huerta y Rafael Campos Ortiz, destacaron que a sus actividades podrán asistir quienes lo deseen, sin importar su credo religioso. Entre los niños y adolescentes es el bullying, la drogadicción y la división de las familias lo que atenta contra su integridad y sano desarrollo, entre los adultos son otros factores que han desencadenado en depresiones, enfermedades mentales, divorcios, violencia, que igualmente necesitan ser escuchados y atendidos. En conferencia de prensa, puntualizaron que a través de videoconferencias, películas temáticas, diálogos y mesas de trabajo que se tendrán durante el evento que realizarán la próxima semana en la entidad, “buscamos que la gente recupere la esperanza y se decida a vivir”. En este tenor, subrayaron: “queremos dirigir un mensaje de esperanza a la gente, que sepan que ante el desánimo, la tristeza y la depresión que se enfrentan en todas las edades, siempre hay una salida”. https://www.elsoldelcentro.com.mx/local/la-gente-necesita-ser-escuchada-testigos-1697563.html

  7. Can your diet affect your brain? A new study published in Neurology suggests that people who eat healthy diets may have larger brain volumes. Meike Vernooij, a professor in epidemiology and radiology at Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands, and her colleagues wanted to see how diet might impact the brain. They asked more than 4,000 older people in the Netherlands (average age: 66) about what they ate and analyzed brain scans over 10 years. People who ate healthier diets resembling the Mediterranean diet — rich in fruits, vegetables and healthy fats from sources like fish, and low in red meat — showed larger total brain volume. They also had more grey and white matter, which is a way of measuring the amount of nerve density in the brain. The area of the brain that’s responsible for processing memories, called the hippocampus, was also larger in people who ate healthier diets.

  8. HAVANA -- A Cuban-operated airliner with at least 110 people on board crashed into a cassava field just after takeoff from Havana's international airport on Friday. There appeared to be mass casualties as Cuban officials said three people had survived, but had yet to give an official toll. Authorities said there were 104 passengers and nine foreign crew members on the flight that was headed to the eastern city of Holguin. Witnesses said they saw a thick column of smoke near the airport. Witnesses said they saw a thick column of smoke near the airport. "A column of black smoke rose up in the sky," resident Ana Gonzalez told the Reuters news agency. The screams of high school kids could be heard inside a nearby school as they ran to safety, CBS News' Manuel Bojorquez reports. The plane lay in a field of yuca-root plants and appeared heavily damaged and burnt. Firefighters were trying to extinguish its smoldering remains. Government officials including President Miguel Diaz-Canel rushed to the site, along with a large number of emergency medical workers. Residents of the rural area said they had seen some survivors being taken away in ambulances. Read more: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/plane-crash-havana-cuba-today-2018-05-18/
  9. On Friday, May 25, 20/20 will do "something special" for longtime co-anchor Elizabeth Vargas. You can call it a going-away party (10/9c, ABC). After 22 years at ABC (14 with the newsmagazine), the Emmy and Peabody Award–winning veteran journalist heads to A&E, where she’ll work under their new primetime banner, A&E Investigates. Tell us about your first two A&E shows. They’re the first in a nine-part series called Cults and Extreme Beliefs(premieres Monday, May 28, 10/9c). Each episode centers on a person who recently left the group we focus on. Our premiere looks at the [so-called “self-help”] NXIVM ring that made headlines when leader Keith Raniere and actress Allison Mack, a high-ranking member, were indicted for sex trafficking. We talk to Sarah Edmondson, who feels enormous regret that she recruited so many people into NXIVM and we follow her as she reaches out to some of them. And the second episode? It’s about an apocalyptic cult called Twelve Tribes. Our contact is a woman born into the group, cut off from the outside world. She now helps people to escape. What have you learned about these insular communities? That many of those involved are bright, well-meaning and incredibly altruistic. Some of these groups exist alongside modern society, with no one noticing. For instance, we profile the Jehovah’s Witnesses, which has a history of protecting alleged child molesters because they don’t believe in going to the police. https://www.tvinsider.com/687184/elizabeth-vargas-interview-new-show-a-e-investigates/

    Santa Fe High School Massacre

    Ten killed in Texas high school shooting were mostly students; police say suspect confessed SANTA FE, Tex. — A 17-year-old student armed with a shotgun and a pistol went on a rampage Friday morning at his school here outside Houston, killing 10 people — mostly students — before surrendering to the officers who confronted him, officials said. Ten others were wounded, including a school resource officer who was left in critical condition. Santa Fe High School became the latest scene of carnage in what has become a national epidemic of mass shootings. For the second time in the past three months, the victims were children and their teachers. It happened during first period. Isabelle Laymance, 15, was in art class, drawing geometric shapes, when she heard gunshots. She froze for a moment, then she ran to a back door leading to a patio, but it was locked. She and seven other students barricaded themselves in a supply closet that connected two art classrooms. She lay on the floor and called police, and then called her mother, whispering “I love you” while holding a friend’s hand. They shushed each other, hoping to avoid detection. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/education/wp/2018/05/18/reports-of-shots-fired-at-high-school-near-houston/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.939c3eed2948
